About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

This quiet studio condo in North Kihei sleeps 2-3 people on a queen murphy bed and queen sleeper sofa. The well kept complex offers a nice pool, jacuzzi, tennis court, BBQ area and on site laundry. The full kitchen offers the budget traveler the option of cooking although restaurants are close at hand. Bring your laptop to use the suite's free wifi internet and chill out with the brand new A/C.

Venture across the street to the Kalepolepo Beach Park for a sunset where the sky meets the ocean and offers a quiet beach with calm shallow waters for easy wading (historically walled off for an ancient fishpond reserved for Hawaiian royalty). Beside the park add to this culture, free visits to the Hawaiian Island Humpback Whale Education Center to inform and captivate. Just North again, take a serene walk on one of the longest continuous stretches of beach on Maui.

Amenities close by offer restaurants, pharmacy, grocery market, salon and outdoor markets for Hawaiian keepsakes. Along South Kihei Road, take in water sport opportunities, surf shops, bars and the night life.

Why The Owner chose Kihei

That's me, sunny D with shades and a grass skirt! It must have been destiny as you can see from my childhood photo. I have always liked the beach and have travelled to Maui many times and have found a sense of comfort, relaxation, warmth, exploration and freedom while staying in Kihei. It's a welcoming and accepting community where I can just BE. I welcome you to enjoy these vibes at my Sweet Nalu (surf) Suite.

Paradise on Maui

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my Ohana visit to Maui due to many factors. Preparation is always three fold for me: securing a flight with Alaska Airlines, securing lodging and car. When all three are in order I can continue to prepare my visit and focus on enjoying the aloha spirit. I rented with Hertz which provided a decent car at a decent rate. I had no trouble with the car which is a blessing. Car problems can cause havoc with a vacation. My lodging was a fully furnished studio in Kihei. It's all about location. The rental was located across from the Kihei Whale Museum. On my first morning after arrival, I walked across the street and headed for the beach just around sunrise. Sunrise approaches behind the dormant volcano Haleakala. Spectacular sunsets face the Kihei horizon. I am always in quest of the elusive Giant Green Sea Turtles which I enjoy while snorkeling. I know they tend to beach themselves at sunset and disappear into the ocean after sunrise. I was not disappointed and found three adult turtles on the beach in front of the museum pond. I enjoyed a whale watch cruise with Pacific to see a dozen breaching whales. I have specific, yet simple, lodging requirements: clean, quiet, safe...and, thankfully, no bugs. I was not disappointed with my rental, though on a few occasions the renter above me was noisy. I fixed that with ear plugs. The rental was a small studio with combined living room/bedroom (Murphy bed), small kitchenette and separate bath, free parking in front. TV had modified cable channels, wifi and phone were available. The pool and Jacuzzi were closed for maintenance a few days. Once available, it was a pleasure to soak in the Jacuzzi under night skies after a day at the beach. A bbq is available for use. Being vegetarian, I bought most food items at Moon's Nature store and other local markets, lots of fresh fruits available...and cooked meals in except for one dinner at Antonio's Italian restaurant. Be sure to hear Anthony Pfluke when he's performing traditional Hawaiian music at Nalu's restaurant. The rental owner, Darilyn, was readily available by phone and email for inquiries. Her local rental assistant, Shannon, was very helpful. Winter weather conditions are typical...warm/dry in Kihei, rainstorms in Kahului...with huge surf. The Triple Crown on Oahu was cancelled due to dangerous conditions: 30 foot waves. It's all part of the aloha spirit of the islands. Mahalo...

Everything you need in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Darilyn's condo was perfect for our Maui vacation! The condo is an a small complex. It was quiet and had a great pool where we enjoyed lounging. The condo was clean, bed was comfortable and the shower had great pressure. It had everything we needed from kitchen supplies to beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler.

It's located right across the street from the Humpback Whale Sanctuary and a small beach park so we could walk across the street for sunset and access the beach to go for a walk. It's only a short drive south to reach the grocery stores, shops, restaurants and great beaches in Kihei.

Darilyn was great to work with, as was her property manager. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Best Value on the Island

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year at Kihei Bay Surf, and our first year in this unit. We enjoyed our stay immensely... the condo was clean, comfortable, quiet, and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, and more! Darilyn was great to deal with - prompt and professional. And if (when) we go back, we will be crossing our fingers that this unit is available.
