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.

Additional highlights of of our spotless condo:

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.

This condo is the perfect Maui getaway! Everything you need. You can’t beat the location and view from this condo. Very comfortable bed. The pool and bbq area is also very clean and big. If you enjoy being outdoors, surfing or playing volleyball book this great condo.

My daughter and I stayed here for 6 nights and it was very nice. Great views from the patio, very close to the beach, walking distance to shopping and dining. Would certainly stay here again.

My wife and I had the best time at Steve's condo. We spent about a week here and wished we could have stayed longer. The unit was spotless and had everything needed for short-term renters. We stocked up on a few groceries (a short walk away) and were able to enjoy some meals on the beautiful balcony overlooking the ocean and sunsets. The unit is also only a few minutes walk from many restaurants in the area one way, and a few more minutes the opposite direction to many of the local beaches (Kam 1, 2, 3). It was great having access to beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, snorkel gear etc. as well - just bring yourself and prepare for an amazing time!

Renting was easy. The hosts Steve & Vicky were easy to get in touch with if we had we questions and responded almost immediately. Loved having the free parking on the property. The unit was very well equipped. Lots of cooking equipment, utensils dishes etc. Loved having real coffee grounds provided (would have liked some milk /cream too in the fridge to get us started in the morning, especially since we arrived at close to 11:00 pm , but that’s just our personal preference) We left a full unopened bag of coffee in the freezer to replace what we used.

This place is amazing and we will staying here again. The condo was clean and well stocked. The bed is very comfortable and the balcony view is the best sunset view around. My wife and I spent two of the six days here just out on the balcony watching the waves, the people, and watching so many whales jump around. ( bring a good pair of binoculars ) you can walk to many stores and restaurants as well.

This apartment was excellent! The view and sunsets from the 6th floor lanai were exquisite! The unit is very well furnished- lots of cooking/ kitchen supplies in great shape! Modern Hawaiian decor, up to date and comfortable, super clean, quiet neighbors, very comfortable bed and high quality soft sheets and towels, lots of toys and ANYTHING you would need for the beach! Also lots of card & board games. The ceiling fans & AC were excellent, but didn’t need them much as the airflow when the doors/windows were open was excellent! We could hear the waves of the ocean when the sliding glass door to the lanai was open. The host was helpful and there are maps and lots of helpful travel books and brochures in the apt. Very centrally located for excellent restaurants, food trucks, shaved ice and a variety of shops and groceries! There is a path along the beach in the park across the street from the building. We really enjoyed walking there during the day as well as in the evening. Saw many sea turtles walking to the right up the path about 5min. There is good snorkeling and surfing places very nearby! Also a skateboarding, inline or roller skating rink, covered picnic tables, sand VB courts, bathrooms, etc, in the park. Overall we had an exellent stay and would go back any chance we can!!

First time this condo unit and already have our 2024 reservations to come back here despite substantial daily rate increase over this year. That should tell you our opinion since we are returning! ;-)

We had stayed in the same building before and loved the location. But 605 was the best fully equipped condo we have ever stayed in. Close to everything and the place has some of the best sunsets I ever seen.

The location for this condo is wonderful. It is easy to get around the island from here. The view is wonderful!! The park across the street is full of so many people having fun. There are so many good restaurants so close, with good food and great prices. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had a nice stay here. The unit is in a great location, walking distance the best coffee shops & restaurants. Also super close to Foodland which was nice. The unit has a really nice view to wake up to every day and it really had everything you could need - beach chairs, snorkel gear, kitchen equipment, etc. which we didn’t use it all, but definitely really appreciated. We didn’t love the pool, but it did the trick to cool down when needed! The few items of feedback I have are: -The fridge water & ice dispensers had some black mold build up, and so did the bathroom sink spout. When I for water out of the fridge dispenser black pieces even fell into my glass of water. The fridge was kind of impossible to clean. I tried. So we just didn’t use. But the bathroom just needed a solid wipe down. Seems little attention to detail had been paid to truly cleaning that stuff. I’d recommend a deep clean & replacing the fridge dispenser piece. -The listing says it has blackout curtains, but the bedroom curtains certainly were not blackout. The outdoor hallway light left the room kind of bright for us (since we’re used to blackout curtains at home). -The bedroom AC unit makes occasional strange noises. Sounded almost exactly like a loud gurgling noise a coffee pot makes as it finishes your brew. Happened maybe a few times at night while we slept and woke me up each time.

Nice property. Very Modern. Has a lot amenities that you do not have to buy (spices, soap, etc.). That was icing on the cake. Can't beat that view.

We absolutely loved this property - our first ever 'condo' booking but we researched other reviews before deciding on this one and could not have been more impressed. Loved the area, the views, the apartment was simply fabulous as were all the inclusions these owners provide as well as the safe included parking. Simply loved this place and would happily go back again.

The location and the view are prime. In the middle of Kihei with the BEST view of ocean! Sunset/sunrise are amazing. Walking distance to beach (literally across the street), restaurants, grocery, and park. Condo is beautiful and equipped with everything you need in kitchen, bathroom, and a closet FULL of beach equipment. Steve was very responsive when we had a parking question- just about the registration paperwork. Parking is plentiful right behind the building. Shops align the first floor of the condo building and we had a lovely massage. Everything else on the island is readily accessible from here with easy driving. Wonderful stay! Can't wait to come back, and we'll definitely stay here again!!

My partner and I enjoyed our stay here while in Maui for a week. It had everything you can possibly need. We appreciated the A/C, the cleanliness, the washer/dryer, the comfy bed, the closet full of beach items, the view from the lanai, the close location to restaurants and everything in between. The location is also central when traveling to different parts of the island. Will definitely stay here again when we return to Maui!

We had a wonderful stay in Steve’s condo in Kehei. It’s a great location right across from the water and a pretty park. We walked there every morning and every evening for exercise and some beautiful views. The condo had every possible amenity. We appreciated the supplies that were there and left a few of our own for the next guests. Steve was a joy to deal with. He was always prompt and everything about the condo was as advertised. We’ll be back!

The condo was great and newly renovated. It was very clean and check I was super easy. They had plenty of beach gear and having a washer and dryer in the unit was so convenient, we would definitely stay again if we come back to Maui. The location was nice and parking was easy.

We come to Maui 3 times a year and will book this unit every time from now on. Staying at this unit added that little extra to our trip. We really enjoyed spending our time not on the beach on the lanai, surfing at the cove and being so close to everything we need. Perfect location! Thank you Steve and Vicki for also providing all the little necessities you usually have to go out and buy just to use on the trip. Wonderful experience! Thank you again! Can’t wait to come back in September! Mahalo

We had a great time staying at Island Surf! It was a wonderful central location for all of the fun activities we had planned. Beautiful sunsets on the lanai every night! The property had all of the amenities we could have asked for in a Maui stay. We would absolutely stay again if we have a chance. Thanks for the lovely visit!

We’ve stayed at Island Surf on several occasions and this one was just as nice! We loved having a ice maker ;) The bed was comfortable. We loved the well stocked beach toy closet. We would definitely stay again!

My wife and I just returned from 7 nights at Steve’s and Vicki’s condo in Kihei, Maui (May 2022). We chose this condo based on previous reviewer positive comments and location in Maui. Below are my wife’s and my thoughts on the condo: • The views from the lanai are spectacular, especially at sunset. Vicki suggested to eat your major meal at lunchtime and to prepare food or eat take outs at supper time so you can watch the nightly sunsets, which we did. The condo’s location on the 6th floor was a great place to take numerous sunset pictures. • The condo was well upgraded, including newer appliances, granite tops in the kitchen and bathroom, nice tile in the shower and flooring, televisions in the family room and bedroom. With the humidity in Maui, the upgraded air conditioning in the family room and bedroom was very appreciated. • Steve and Vicki thought of everything a guest would need for their trip to Maui, including a Cal King bed, washer, dryer, dishwasher, kitchen utensils, beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels, Wi-Fi, a fully stocked bathroom with higher quality towels, shampoo, and much more. While in Maui, Steve was very responsive. I contacted Steve a couple times and he responded back within a couple hours. Suggestions for entertainment that we enjoyed: • Ocean Aquarium in Ma’alaea Harbor • Hana Tours of Maui (Deluxe Hana Tours). We were picked up and returned to our Condo. Our driver, Shawn, was very knowledgeable about the Hawaiian culture and sites (he was born and raised in Maui) • Calypso Maui Sunset Dinner Cruise. Ma’alaea Harbor (the biggest boat in the harbor). The prime rib was very good • RPNW Maui IAO Valley in Wailuku (a State Park with beautiful views) Suggestions for eating out that we enjoyed: Lava Rock Bar & Grill (less than a 5-minute walk from the Condo), Monkeypod Kitchen in Wailea, and Peace & Love Shave Ice (about a minute walk from the Condo)

We had a wonderful stay at Steve and Vicki’s condo. They were very thoughtful of a vacationers needs, and the condo was very well equipped. We really enjoyed our evenings on the lanai watching the sunsets, as well as watching families having BBQ’s and playing beach volleyball across the street at Kalama Park. Being on the 6th floor we had an unhindered view of the sunsets (got some amazing pics!). We had a rental car and cross-crossed the island for all kinds of activities. The location was highly centralized for us and was perfect, as we weren’t far away from anywhere we wanted to visit and spend time at. I would highly recommend this condo and many kudos to Steve and Vicki for their thoughtful attention to detail!

This condo looks right out over Kalama Park. It's really fun to watch people playing volleyball, getting surfing lessons, skating, or just walking. Sunset from the lanai is simply gorgeous. The location is wonderful too. Walking distance to many great beaches, restaurants, grocery stores, and gift shops. The owner is very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended.

We loved our experience in the beach town of Kihei away from all the resorts. Many restaurants and leas crowded beaches all around. So many outdoor activities at our finger tips without having to deal with heaps of tourists and companies. The balcony for sunrise and sunset is unmatched! Loved all the amenities—washer dryer, cleaning supplies, beach chairs, beach towels and toys! Awesome get away! We will be back!

This place was extremely accommodating and very comfortable and quiet home. We were surprised about the cleanliness and complete accessories it has. From kitchen accessories, to Livingroom, to bathroom and the bedroom. Whatever you need were provided. We were even surprised that even your beach needs are there for you to use. There was beach towels, bags, chairs, boogey boards and even snorkeling items and floaties. I mean it was so convenient to have them. In the bedroom, you get to sleep in a memory foam bed which was extremely comfortable with hotel style pillows. The room also has it's own TV to relax before your bedtime. In the bathroom, the showers are top end with different shower streams. I know this is TMI but I have to mention because I had bad experiences with other accommodations, the toilet flushes properly and it has a very comfortable seat. The vanity is clean and full of items you might need for yourself. The kitchen is complete with all your needs that even if you forgot dinner, you can pull something out and make one for yourself without spending a dime. The Livingroom has a new smart TV connected to the internet that it's the only one I used for a quick news off the internet. Since this unit was on the 6th level, there's also a balcony to hangout and you have a bird's eye view of the Kihei Rd in front of you, not to mention the ocean view which you can catch a sunset. Highly recommended and you can't go wrong. And the host were very hospitable. AAA

My wife and I have stayed at this wonderful condo at Island Surf many times. We find the location is ideal - close to everything anyone would want while in Maui. The unit is located on the top floor and the view of the ocean is amazing - we spent many hours watching the whales as well as all the surfers and volleyball players. The unit was perfect for us - having lots of extras that made it an easy stay. The King sized bed is super comfortable. When we found one small issue, Steve got back to us quickly and helped us resolve things immediately. We look forward to our next stay at Steve and Vickie's condo.

Great location in proximity to beaches, food, shopping, nightlife, everything good in Kihei. We were able to walk most places This condo was spacious, well stocked, and looked just like the pictures. Fabulous views of the ocean while you eat breakfast or dinner on the lanai. Everything about the rental process was easy and seamless. The owners are very friendly and responsive. I messaged Steve day before check in because our flight was scheduled earlier landing than we thought. He graciously gave us permission to check in early. You really don't have to bring anything with you; it feels just like home.Steve and Vicki, thank you.

This place is amazing. Great location in proximity to beaches, food, shopping, nightlife, everything good in Kihei. We were able to walk most places and the view from the lanai and living room can’t be beat. We happened to stay here during an insane winter storm that rocked the whole island. (Blizzard on the big island!) Lots of damage everywhere and lost power for 18 hours. Unfortunately, the bedroom ceiling sprung a small leak, at zero fault of the owner. All things completely out of anyones’ control. The owner was incredibly responsive, and gracious through it all and I can’t say enough good things about our experience despite the crazy circumstances. Next time we’re in Maui, this will be the first place we look to stay again, and the first place we’ll recommend to anyone visiting. This is an absolute gem of a condo and you cannot go wrong.

We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay for our Honeymoon. This condo was spacious, well stocked, very clean and looked just like the pictures. The view from the balcony was incredible. Everything about the rental process was easy and seamless. The owners are very friendly and responsive. I messaged Steve on the day of check in because our flight was landing earlier than we thought. He graciously gave us permission to check in early (it probably helps that it was the "off" season). We didn't end up using any of the beach equipment or cooking in the kitchen, but I was looking around and the owners really thought of everything. You really don't have to bring anything with you; it feels just like home. The area felt very safe and you could walk to many things. We frequently walked to Foodland (grocery store with many alcohol options), Maui Sweet Shoppe, Three's Bar & Grill and Lava Rock Bar & Grill. Check out Lava Rock for an amazing breakfast and $2 mimosas! We will definitely recommend this condo to our friends and family.

This condo is perfectly situated in Kihei with amazing views and next to great restaurants. The location allowed us to easily go to different parts of the island and had a more relaxed local atmosphere. There were no issues with parking and the property itself is very quiet and well managed. The condo came equipped with all the swim/water gears, beach chairs, towels, and misc things that made the trip extremely convenient. I would definitely stay here again!

We had a wonderful stay at Steve & Vicki's condo! The wonderful reviews of this property sold us on booking it months ago and we were so glad we did. Steve & Vicki take great care of their guests and have so many wonderful recommendations. We would absolutely stay here again when we return to Maui. You have a great ocean and sunset view, close walking distance to beaches, and equally close to several great restaurants. Book this place if you see it available!

What a great place to stay! Great location for getting around entire island, many great local beaches within a 15 min drive! All the beach supplies you could possibly need, chairs, cooler, towels, flippers/snorkel & boogie boards! Fabulous views of the ocean while you eat breakfast or dinner on the lanai. I would suggest going to condo before making your grocery trip, there are so many supplies already available so need to overbuy! If we ever make it back to this beautiful island I would stay here again for sure.

We had an amazing time staying at this lovely beachfront condo. The communication with the owner was great with several emails before our arrival with instructions on check in. The views from the lanai are to die for! Maui is ridiculous busy right now so food reservations were hard to come by. Because of that we were more than happy to order takeout and watch the sunset from the lanai. The condo is VERY well stocked with everything you could ever want or need (multiple coolers, beach toys, chairs, umbrella, ample towels). I cannot say enough good things and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Maui!


David C.

Wonderful location, easy parking and access to unit and everything you need while staying on Maui. Great service and communication from owner made this the least stressful trip to Hawaii we have ever had. The unit is clean and modern and is just like home!

The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook your meals, plenty of towels, and linens. The AC in the master makes a gargling noise every few hours during the night that would sometimes wake us up. Not sure if that’s something that could be fixed.

We loved our stay in Maui! It was a fantastic family trip. The accommodations were great! Very clean and comfortable. They had beach towels and snorkel gear and wave boards for us to use which was fantastic. The location was great and if we ever make it back to maui we would love to stay there again. Steve and Vicki were awesome hosts and very accommodating. Excellent communication! Thanks for the great experience!

Condo was modern, immaculate and fully stocked with home amenities and more! Central Kihei location with just minutes walk to beach, food, coffee, shaved ice and surf lessons. Our stay exceeded expectations. In house washer and dryer were great and completely took advantage of morning coffees, naps, and sunset views on patio. Highly recommend and would rent again in a heartbeat :)

The location of this condo is perfect. Directly across from an amazing surf beach, walking distance to Charlie Young beach that has excellent snorkeling opportunities and great turtle sightings.

We really enjoyed our stay at Island Surf #605! Location was excellent and the view from the lanai—wow! What a perfect way to start our days in Maui with breakfast on the lanai. We took full advantage of the many nearby beaches. The condo is well-appointed (all the beach gear we needed) which we so appreciated. We felt safe and at ease there. Steve was great—very attentive! We would totally stay here again.

Steve and Vicki do an amazing job and literally thinking of anything one could possibly need in this condo. We were amazed at everything that was provided and all of the attention to detail. The AC in the living room and bedroom was awesome for when it was too hot, but we didn't need it too much since the Tradewinds do a good job cooling down the place. But most importantly, this condo is the most comfortable and best condo we've ever stayed in on Maui and we come every year. The view was amazing, we were able to watch the sunset from the lanai each night that we didn't go down to Kalama Park, and we were walking distance from so much. I loved having Joy's on the bottom level, perfect for smoothies and a light lunch. Even our favorite snorkeling spot at Charley Young beach was walking distance, where most mornings we swam with so many sea turtles and even spotted an octopus among all of the other tropical fish. We also liked that we could easily get to Kahului, Upcountry, and Lahaina in 30-40 minutes. If this condo is available for your dates, don't think twice, just book it. You won't regret it.

My Mom and I had such a great time staying at this condo over Memorial Day week! The location of this condo is the best location to stay in Kihei! We walked to our favorite breakfast place, Kihei Café (only one bloack away!) and there are restaurants, shopping and shaved ice just one block away as well. There is a Foodland grocery store just two blocks away, which is great to pick up wine, fruit, snacks, etc. We decided to Uber the first half of the week and rent a car for the second half. It saves a lot of money and this location is so great, you really don't need a car the entire time. An Uber down to our favorite happy hour spot, Monkey Pod is only $12 and we love walking around the resorts in Wailea, also just a $12 Uber. The condo was very clean, nicely upgraded and well stocked. My Mom and I took the beach chairs down to the beach several days, sat in the shade for hours and watched the surfers, so relaxing. It was so nice having keyless entry, so we didn't have to worry about losing a key. The condo is conveniently located right out from the elevator on the top floor. I was pleasantly surprised at how extremely quiet the building is, I never heard other guests. The picture of the view from the balcony does not do it justice, it is such an amazing view and you get a 180 degree view of the ocean from the balcony! The street noise is not bad and it's so fun to watch all the people, volleyball players and surfers. We had such a great trip staying at this condo that we were already looking at other dates we could come back and book it again. Highly recommended! Anna & Mary San Diego, CA & Firestone, CO

We had our first Hawaiian trip April 12-23, 2018. Our stay started in Kihei at the Island Surf Building, #605 from April 12-16. It was a great way to start our trip! The condo is beautiful, clean, well decorated and WELL stocked. It had everything we needed, and more! To top it off, it was a great location- close to everything from shopping, to restaurants and bars, grocery shopping and the beach. We loved sitting on the lanai and watching volleyball in the park, having breakfast and/or a cocktail. This was by far our favorite stay during our trip. I wish we could have stayed longer. I'd recommend this condo to any friends or family visiting Maui.

We really enjoyed our stay at Steve and Vicki's. Great central location to everything and a short walk to so many things including restaurants and beaches. The place comes fully stocked with beach gear, coolers, tons of cooking utensils and spices. Steve was very responsive and answered all of our questions timely. We had such a great time and it surpassed our expectations!

My wife and I completed our second stay at this condo, this time we were lucky enough to have over four weeks in the unit. The unit is everything that Steve and Vicky say it is - they provide everything you need to enjoy your days in Kihei. We experienced one problem with the plumbing system while there, but Steve responded immediately and the situation was remedied even though it was a Sunday! As we mentioned during our previous review, the bed provided in this unit is one of the most comfortable we have experienced in our many stays in Hawaii. We are definitely looking forward to our next trip back to this unit. Thanks - John and Sherry

First time in Maui and couldn’t ask for better accommodations or nicer hosts to deal with.

Vicki and Steve Parker has a very beautiful unit in this building on Kihei. We spent 13 nights in their unit. the triple pane glass in the large sliding doors were wonderful at keeping the unit quiet. The view from the lanai overlooking the south end of the large, long well-maintained park and the Pacific beyond was entertaining as we watched almost continuous beach volleyball, and surfing lessons from the surfing school next door. Steve had wonderful (4) snorkel gear in bags in the bedroom closet along with beach towels, boogie boards, etc. The king size bed was very comfortable. Trade winds would cool the apt. easily, although we used the two air-conditioners mostly. We mostly cooked in (we spent c 8 weeks on the islands) and the pantry was very well stocked. We enjoyed the full size washer and dryer. We had some questions for the Parkers serveral months ago which they promptly answered, other than that we did not have to interact with Steve and Vicki at all.

My wife and I loved this property! It is also the type of area we like, as we are not the big concrete, busy resort types. The condo had everything we needed and then some. Having all of the little extra's such as two sizes of coolers was a nice plus. It was very clean and comfortable and the access is easy. The bed is very comfortable and quiet. The neighbors were also very quiet and respectful. We enjoyed many of the previously described restaurants, happy hours, activities and beaches nearby. Snorkeling was great at the tiny beach location described by Steve less than a 5 minute walk to the south. I had six turtles swimming around me at one point while I snorkeled and videoed them. I usually saw one or two turtles each time I snorkeled, as well as many types of fish and some coral! We saw on two occasions whales from the Lanai and one other time while at big beach. We experienced much of what the Island had to offer by car and had a great time at the blow hole, Haleakala and Hana areas. Thank you Steve and Vicki for sharing and we will be sure to come back one day!

This unit was a great place to stay while visiting Maui. It is well furnished and equipped with everything you need for beach days - chairs, towels, snorkle gear etc. And comes with a great view! Location is great for day trips to Hana and west Maui. This was our first time renting from VRBO and our first time in Maui and we weren't disappointed. Thanks for the memories!!

This was our second stay at Island Surf 605. It's a wonderful condo, super well-equipped and the split system AC works great and is very quiet. If you want to be at the best surf break in Kihei, and in the heart of the action, this is the condo for you!
