Kihei Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio Condo Sleeps 4 - Steps to Ocean Surf

A sunny 2nd floor west facing studio with a partial view of the ocean, high quality towels, and linens in a quiet peaceful space. Nightly rate $85 thur Oct. 31! Located at Kihei Bay Surf 715 S. Kihei Rd. #254 Kihei, HI 96753. Sound deadening double pane low E windows have been installed to keep the property quiet and cool. A 2.5" Memory Foam mattress topper has been added to the sleeper sofa. A new, as of 4/16, pillow topped queen-sized mattress for the main bed. New quartz counter-top for kitchen buffet, mirrored closet doors and high efficiency water heater have all been recently installed.

Getting to paradise is not complicated. Confirm your stay dates are available on our calendar, use our 'Book-It' button and you are headed to Maui Paradise Found. No matter what time you arrive after our 4pm check-in time, a lock box on our door allows you to enter without property manager assistance. The entrance code will be given to you a minimum of 14 days prior to your arrival. Check-out is by 11am.

We have bamboo floors, blackout blinds, 51'' 1080p plasma TV, free WiFi, full air-conditioning and an Apple TV. The kitchen has a stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen is fully furnished for any gourmand's creations. A new mattress and pad, luxurious 500 count Egyptian cotton linens and great pillows for the main bed. The sleeper sofa has high quality linens as well. There are beach towels, a boogie board, an umbrella, a cooler and Tommy Bahama beach chairs provided for your use while visiting. The beach towels and quality bath towels provided equal the number of registered guests.

The property is fully air-conditioned. While our guest you have free parking, use of the pool, tennis court, newly renovated hot tub and BBQ areas which are steps away from the unit. Laundry facilities are on-site (coin-operated). The laundry is located on the east side of the complex at the back of the parking lot near unit #133. Its hours are from 8am-9pm and we provide the key, otherwise it is locked.

We consider Maui our home, contact us for Maui activity ideas. We can make suggestions for whale watching, island hot spots, where to get the best food prices, car rental rates and seasonal events.

Recommendations: I would rent a car. There are buses for the whole island with a single flat-rate fee for the day, but coming to Maui is about the journey, not the destination. It is not about getting from Point A to Point B but stopping every time the view overwhelms you and sitting to enjoy it. Bring snacks and drinks, picnics are the way to enjoy every day's excursion.

Beaches: there is one of the best on the Island, Sugar Beach, an easy walk just down the street about 2 blocks from the property. But remember you are on Maui. The island has 5 or 6 of the worlds greatest beaches. Big Beach, the one featured in our Owner Photo is a 30 min drive...not to be missed.

The location of the property is centrally located on the south side of Maui. The airport at Kahului (OGG) is 10 miles and a 20 min. drive. Northwest is Lahaina, a 45 min drive of 20 miles. The town of Paia is past the airport and is a 25 min drive from the property of 15 miles.

Bring and always wear sunscreen. The average summer temp is in the upper 80's and the average high season temperature is in the lower 80's. You will be so comfortable and warm, you will forget you are under a tropical sun and could sunburn.

Should you need a place to store your luggage on your day of departure, here are a couple of options:

•Paradise Storage is in Kahului, across the street from Target. They have day storage for $25. Although their facility closes at 7:00 PM, the manager lives on-site and can accommodate later pick-ups. Their phone number is 808-877-7783 or 808-873-6767.

•Extra Space Storage has luggage storage for the day. Cost is $22 + $10 for insurance, for a total of $32. They have a Kihei office, phone 875-8554.

About Kevin

Maui Paradise Found Properties is our first step to make our move to Maui. We love our island and want you to do so as well. This was our 1st property here on Maui, our 2nd is located at a property next door, Kihei Bay Vista. By renting them both, a group of 8 could stay near each other to BBQ or gather for activities. Please follow the links and check it out.

Kevin purchased this studio in 2013

Why Kevin chose Maui

We have a strong HOA that is always striving to improve the common areas and maintain a quality for all guests and owners. The current project is a pool area upgrade; new chairs, hot tub surround, BBQ area. All completed and looks great!!

What makes this studio unique

The best benefit of Kihei Bay Surf is we are across the street from the Ocean! Steps to surf!

Perfect home base!

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect place to come home to after a day of activities. It is exactly as shown in the photo. The bed and quality sheets were wonderful. Very clean and the kitchen was so well furnished with everything we needed. The large flat screen TV was awesome. We really enjoyed using the Tommy Bahama Beach chairs and umbrella. The thick beach towels and quality cooler was an added bonus. My son made use of the on site laundry. The couch was so comfortable that he didn't even use the pull out bed. The location was a great launching place for everything we wanted to do.

We had such an awesome stay. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We did the Road to Hana and many other things on this beautiful island. I felt like I was returning " home" each evening. The owner Kevin was great and responsive. I received my damage deposit back the same day that I left. I just want to come back right now!😊❤️👙🌴👣😎👍👍

A Slice of Paradise

  • 4 of 5

This cute little studio is tastefully appointed, with everything a full kitchen needs, a very comfortable bed (and even a comfortable pull-out according to my brother). The listing is absolutely accurate. It is also very clean and stocked with a large number of useful beach items including a cooler, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie-board, and more. It is almost directly across from a beach (you can see the water), and an easy walk to two beaches and the Pacific Humpback Whale Center. The technology all works easily, and the owners have painstakingly labeled and provided directions to wifi access, use of TV, DVD player and sound bar. Most importantly, the owners are incredibly responsive and willing to act on any needs. The only reason I cannot give it five stars is that the cooler just doesn't cover the unit effectively. It is hard to tell whether this is an engineering problem, or one that is typical to Maui in general. Even knowing that, I would definitely recommend the unit and return to it in the future.

Owner's Response: Aloha Susan, Thank you for the kind review. I am glad so many things about the condo met your's and your brother's needs. I had the AC checked and mechanically it is working fine. I suspect the issue is more Maui was experiencing 90 degree days while you were here. With that heat there is only so much a window mounted AC can do. I fully appreciate you wanted to be cooler but I myself don't like AC. I prefer to open windows and enjoy the trade breezes. It is a personal choice but thank you for letting me know. I always strive to maintain my properties! Blessings and Mahalo, Kevin

Great place, super cute, quiet, in front of the beach ! great stay in there !

  • 5 of 5

This is just 20 min from the airport (went there with flight arriving at night with no issue). 40 Min from Lahaina, and this is a very good base to visit the island overall. Easy access to anywhere, and all the needed stuffs close by (fruits shop, small supermarket etc.).

You can feel the Hawaii mood when you get there.

We've been staying 2 adults and 2 kids ( aged 3 and 6), it did great.

Swimming pool, SPA couple of step as well, cool to relax after hiking day !

100% recommended.

Owner's Response: Aloha Marrissa, I am so glad your first trip to Hawaii was so Awesome! Celebrating your 50th birthday on the beach watching the sunset over Lanai most have been memorable. I appreciate your suggestions and want to address them. Things are done in my condo for specific reasons. Garbage cans in the tropics are small because they need to be emptied daily. Anything left in them too long rots and attracts bugs. Bath mats don't dry between use and can mold. As for extra towels, I provide a full set of beach and bath linens for each registered guest. My property is a VRBO rental not a corporate hotel. I do not provide daily towel service but I do provide laundry detergent for the on-site laundry. This is all part of the VRBO experience which keeps costs down which I pass along to you. Blessings and Mahalo, Kevin

Perfect, just what we wanted/needed

  • 5 of 5

OK, we wanted something simple, yet efficient . It had exactly what we wanted. We were looking to spend most of our time "out and about" and we did. This place provided the beach chairs and umbrella, beach towels, plus cooler etc, and a functioning small kitchen(hit Costco or Safeway for basics)plus the stuff in the brochures(bed, bath, toilet..ya know..the basics) Kevin gave a list of places to eat. All were all spot on. Loved the Kihei Cafe for breakfast. The fish tacos at Coconuts are to die for(2 for 1). Found a little taco place in Haiku(Tims) across from the Haleakala Bike Co on our own(fanastic!!). Highly recommend the "Flyin' Hawaiian 'Zip Line'" (Say Hi to Gundy). Went to the Drum circle on Little Beach on Sunday(really, really, don't miss this). Only drawback was we forgot to turn in our parking pass(sorry). Truly though, Kihei is a great central location. We will do this again. Aloha, guys

ps We had a great time!!

our stay

  • 3 of 5

The place was clean and well maintained. It was overlooking the main road where there was a lot of traffic noise early evening. The pool, hot tub, and grill area was a great place to relax and cook supper after a day at the beach or sight seeing. The place is in a good location to all the places we were interested in visiting. If it was just this we would come back again. My wife gave a list of things she thought would improve the place and we received what we thought was a scathing and angry response. Because of that we would not return.

Owner's Response: Aloha Robert, I'm glad you wrote how beautiful Kihei Bay Surf is and how nicely located it is on Maui. I agree my property is clean and well maintained, thank you. I think the 3 star review stems from me having to keep a partial amount of your damage deposit for the bent screen door, not my response to your wife's suggestions. I arrived 10 min. after you emailed me to say your were having "difficulties" with the door. It was your 10th day in the unit and the door was new from Home Depot having been installed 3 weeks earlier. You denied walking into it and leaving two 90 degree bends. I sent you pictures. I told you the cost of its replacement prior to my leaving that day. The note of suggestions your wife left me was stuck to the cutting board with a knife. I found it when cleaning after your departure. I commented on how odd that act was in my email to you explaining your damage deposit. I think most people would have simply left it on the counter. My email to her addressed each of her suggestions. I commented on her desire the next time she stayed that I provide her with 2 sets of beach and bath towels. She said she did not want to do laundry on her vacation and more towels would help alleviate that issue for her. I explained I do not provide aluminum foil. The other items; a veggie peeler, BBQ tongs, dish towels are all in the unit so I'm assuming she just did not locate them. She did not mention these concerns while I was there addressing the screen door. You never owned up to breaking the door. You suggested I bought a cheap one and it was bent prior to your arrival. I think all our issues could have been elevated if the Boy Scout's motto were followed: own your behavior and always leave the campground better than you found it. Blessings and Mahalo, Kevin
