Island Surf #605 Condo Description:
JUNE UPDATE: New central AC was just installed ! Incredibly quiet !! Individual room climate control.
Aloha! We are excited to share our condo with you for your beautiful trip to Maui and we would like to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible. The unit is supplied with all of the things we had hoped to find in a vacation rental, including lots of spices, new cookware and dishes and even zip lock baggies, tin foil and Q tips (to get the sand out of your ears !!). The goal is to save our guests some expense and eliminate the need for packing such items in your travel luggage.
Our newly purchased and completely remodeled unit in sunny South Kihei is in the heart of the beach town within walking distance to world class beaches, restaurants, bars, and shops. There are many days you may find that a car is not necessary. The Island Surf Building has a delis, dive shop, bike rentals, day spas, surf shop, and other convenient businesses located on the first floor. It is across the street from Kalama Beach Park where one can either watch or participate in basketball, roller blading, skate boarding, sand volleyball, snorkeling, surfing, paddle boarding, and fishing.
"The Cove", located just across the street, is well known to be the best beginner surf and/or paddle boarding area on the island. Rental gear and/or excellent instructors are conveniently located at the new Maui Wave Rider surf store across the street. One can easily enjoy watching your friends and family play in the ocean or at the park from the private lanai.
Whale season is between November and April, and the whales are easy to spot from this unique, top floor lookout. There are no power lines, poles, or other buildings obstructing your view.
Our top floor condo is bright and provides direct, unobstructed Pacific Ocean views and sunsets every evening via the floor to ceiling glass wall in the living room/kitchen. From the lanai you can see the Islands of Lanai, Kaho'olawe, and Molokini crater. New double pane glass throughout the unit provides silence when you want it, and the huge sliding glass door to the 16 foot Lanai brings the outside in when you choose.
Our unit is one of only four top floor vacation rental units facing west that allows viewing the incredible westerly sunsets regardless of the time of year you visit!!
You are also in a great location for day trips to Haleakala, Hana, Lahaina /Kaanapali, and Wailea.
The airport is conveniently located within 30 minutes of The Island Surf and thus "coming and going" is both quick and easy.

This condo has only been listed on the vacation rental market for two plus years and we are excited to receive your reviews!!! So far they have been incredible. It is legally licensed for a vacation rental, Hawaiian Tax ID 011-116-5440-01.
In regard to the official tax ID number, regardless of where you stay, make sure your condo owner provides you their number to you before you book. Condo owners that do not provide their tax number are often not licensed and are probably operating illegally. Please be careful, the state of Hawaii has recently emphasized enforcing this and you may find yourself without a place to stay when you arrive. IE Kauai recently closed 320 non-permitted vacation rentals with only two weeks notice and guests were left without accommodations.
Whether you stay at Island Surf or elsewhere on Maui, please do some research and check this out before making reservations.
