This sixth (top) floor oceanfront condo at the Kihei Surfside Resort is located on the sought after ocean side of the elevator, and has a spectacular ocean view from the kitchen, living room, dining area and private lanai. It is one of the larger, 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath units (680 sq ft). The view of the ocean is absolutely breathtaking.

PLEASE NOTE: Bookings in this unit are for 1 or 2 guests only. The unit SLEEPS A MAXIMUM OF 2 PEOPLE ONLY. The unit DOES NOT have a sofa bed in the living room available for guest use. No pets. Minimum 5 night stay. No smoking or vaping in the building or on the lanai.
The brand-new custom kitchen is fully equipped with cream-coloured maple cabinetry, quartz counter tops, brand new LG appliances, including a refrigerator with ice and water on the door, full size range, dishwasher, multi-function microwave oven, and garbage disposal. There is also a variety of small appliances including a coffee maker, toaster, blender, and hand mixer, as well as a large selection of high quality pots and pans, baking pans, knife set, and ample matching dishes, glasses and cutlery.

The flooring throughout is beautiful soft-step coastal eucalyptus luxury vinyl plank.

The living area has a remote controlled Air Conditioner, multi-speed marine-grade ceiling fan, 65” 4K ultra HD smart TV, large area rug, wireless high speed Internet, and telephone with free long-distance calling to the United States and Canada.

The private lanai has a round bistro table with two swivel rocker chairs - a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or a romantic oceanfront dinner.

The bedroom has a Cal-King sized bed and is furnished with a brand-new solid mango wood bedroom suite. There is a remote controlled Air Conditioner, multi-speed marine grade ceiling fan, plantation shutters, closet, digital security safe and a 43” 4K ultra HD smart TV.

The master bathroom has a porcelain bathtub with shower (one of only a few units in the building with a tub), a lovely cream coloured solid maple vanity with Corian countertop. The matching half bath has been finished to the same high standard. Both bathrooms have Kohler "silent flush" toilets and new Panasonic 'whisper-quiet' exhaust fans.

The unit is fully equipped with utensils, fresh linens and towels, iron/ironing board, hairdryer, beach towels and a cooler.

Coin laundry facilities are available on site.

This unit is equipped with a state of the art Oracode door lock, whereby each guest is issued a unique code which controls the door only during their stay. No keys!

Unit 605 is a beautifully finished, luxury unit in a spectacular location with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, beaches, and West Maui Mountains.

The Kihei Surfside Resort is located at 2936 S. Kihei Road, South Kihei at the entrance to beautiful Wailea, with more sun than most other parts of the island. This is a true oceanfront location. It’s a concrete building of 6 floors and 84 units with an elevator. The pool and surrounding deck area underwent a complete renovation during the summer of 2021. During the summer of 2015, the building underwent an extensive makeover including a complete concrete restoration and was painted. Each unit received new windows, doors and railings. There is free parking on site. The resort is a twenty-five minute drive from the Kahului Airport (OGG). Rental cars are available at the airport or in Kihei town. There are also taxis available at the airport, a shuttle bus and public transportation.

Virtually all other properties and resorts in South Kihei are either located on busy South Kihei Rd., or are across the street from the ocean. One special feature of the Kihei Surfside is that it is located at the quiet end of S. Kihei Road, is set back 300 feet from it, AND is located right on the ocean! Many first time Surfside guests say that even though they have visited Kihei many times, they had never seen the resort because it’s set back from the road!

Another unique feature of the property is that we have a 2 acre, immaculately kept oceanfront lawn area with dozens of loungers, a heated swimming pool and deluxe barbecue facilities. In season, there are daily whale sightings from both the grounds and the lanais. In fact, the Pacific Whale Foundation conducts their annual whale count from our property. The building is located at the north end of Keawakapu Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui (voted Maui's most romantic), where you can walk for miles past some of the most expensive oceanfront homes on the island and the luxurious hotels of Wailea.

Beautiful condo with views for days! A little smaller than expected due to mirrors on a wall, but beautifully done and prime location for beach walks and Kihei dining. AC in bedroom is a bit noisy with the whirring sound, lights are a bit bright in the bedroom, but nice all around. Will def be back again soon!

Given the opportunity, we would absolutely stay at Kihei Surfside again. Outstanding view, especially at sunset when locals and their dogs and tourists gather at the adjacent town park to give thanks for another lovely day. The apartment was well outfitted and near the beaches and shopping...we hated having to leave.

The view is STUNNING. My jaw dropped when I entered the condo. Beautiful sunsets can be seen directly from the room. Everything is recently renovated and very nicely decorated. We could not have enjoyed our stay more! To keep this review as honest as possible- here are some things that were not to our liking- but did not take away from the enjoyment of our trip. The shades were broken upon arrival. Not the end of the world when your view is Maui - but annoying enough at night time when you want privacy. The lights were SO BRIGHT. Especially in the master bathroom. If you had to wake up early, or in the middle of the night, in the dark, it definitely hurt your eyes turning on the light for the bathroom. Finally, it drives me nuts when I am charged a cleaning fee and I’m still expected to clean before I leave. And by “clean” I mean take out the trash and start the dishwasher, and throw away all food. I understand you don’t want any critters entering the condo , but in my opinion, taking the trash out is something the cleaning staff should take care of. None of the negatives I mentioned should deter you from staying here. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and will definitely recommend this unit to friends in the future. Mahalo!

Extremely clean and comfortable! Amazing view from the lanai. Very quiet on property. Walkable to a beautiful small beach. Easy parking and would recommend renting a car if staying, quick drive to restaurants and other beaches.

Absolutely unbeatable view. Great location, loved being close to Wailea shops but also Kihei area. Would stay here every time if we’re lucky enough to vacation again in Maui. Thought no AC would be a problem but it was fine.

The unit was clean with incredible views, and well appointed. Very spacious and well located. The property was very well maintained, could not have asked for a better stay. We had the windows open for most of our stay with no bothersome outside noise to speak of.

Worth more than a 5 star rating. No a/c but a perfect breeze flowed through the unit so it was never needed. Unbelievable view and great location with easy walking to amazing beaches. The community grills were meticulously maintained so you can prepare your own grilled island delights. Short drive to everything you need and centrally located for exploring the island. Plenty of space for two and maintained well. One of the best beds we have slept on in years. Highly recommended!!!!

When we arrived we were a bit concerned when we saw the caution tape on the balconies but ut was just due to air conditioning being installed. Howver the unit was nice and clean and had everything we needed. The view was incredible!! Watched whales and sea turtles and sunrises snd sunsets...Oh my!!

We had a good week even though it was a week of 5-10 yr record rainfall. Not quite my dream of sunshine but we madethe best of it. Sunsets way of coast but made each day. Our condo was great, views so beautiful. We watched from room a group of seals over 12 playing off shore. Incredible. Turtles feeding on the shore right next to the pool. Our only complaint was Mother Nature. Walks every day on the beach!

Our 7 day stay was great. The view from our room was amazing. We didn’t hear the roosters hardly ever. We were told they would probably wake us up early every morning. Property was very quiet especially after 9 pm. The only thing that we didn’t like was that there was no air conditioning but we knew that when we booked and also they are now working on having air conditioning put into the rooms. Would stay here again.

Very clean and tidy place. No AC but the ocean breeze if you open the windows in the bedroom and balcony makes up for it. Furniture was fairly outdated but clean. All the necessary supplies were provided which was great. We really enjoyed our stay. You can catch the sunset from your balcony which is beautiful.

A well maintained condo with a spectacular view. This is a great location on the island with lots of amenities near to the condo. A wonderful experience.

Before arrival, management team was very informative about the place and check in process. When arrived, beautiful place and fabulous view of the ocean. The place has everything you need, even ingredients for cooking. We enjoyed the stay and were very happy with the staff! Carl was very helpful and arrived within 10’ in the early Sunday morning to help with our door lock (somehow did not work that morning). Would definitely rent it again! One wish, air conditioning! 😁

Nice condo in a good location, a little over a mile to all the Kihei hot spots and at a good price. Didn't realize it didn't have AC when I booked but was fine without. AC was in process of being added to the building though so we would come back!

We had a wonderful time and were SO glad that we stayed at the condo, instead of a hotel. We loved the beautiful photos on the walls, and the furniture and bed were comfy. It was great to have 1-1/2 bathrooms, too. Each of us could spread out with plenty of counter space! The beach is so close and my husband loved snorkeling right off the rocks out front. He saw more there than on our $250 snorkeling excursion… including a couple turtles!

Great view! Nice pool & BBQ. Beach nearby (short walk) Free parking! Good spots always available. Coin laundry. Clean and quiet. Nice comfy bed and fully equipped kitchen. Did I mention the free putting green?

Not only a great location and view, but the management of this property is pretty extraordinary. Any little issues are quickly addressed, and the daily maintenance of the facilities is top-notch. The snorkeling in front of the property is spectacular and loaded with the possibility of seeing many sea turtles and even a manta ray on occasion. The only critique like some have mentioned before, and for us visiting in the heart of summer (July/Aug), is that on some days without wind, and with the fans going full blast, it can get a little too warm for comfort, but then tends to cool again in the middle of the night. The response to this while we were there is the fact that all the rooms were upgraded with individual power meters in preparation of installing Air Conditioning units, so that will be spectacular once completed! Otherwise, the host and management were always quick and gracious to help with any of our needs, and our trip was beyond incredible in large part because of the enjoyment of this property. Definitely recommend, and can not wait to return!

Great location next to beaches. No surprises. Property and view as spectacular as portrayed in photos. We had prompt feedback to rectify initial wifi issue.

This place was very quiet, very nice landscaping, very nice views with beautiful sunsets every night! There is nothing I would change with the property and the room! And the owner Larry was very nice.

We loved the ease of check in, the views, and the cool ocean breeze that cycled around this apartment. It was located in the perfect location for spending time on the beach, exploring town, and eating delicious food. We loved it all and would recommend this property to anyone!

Great views. Unit was clean and accurately described. No problems at all. Property is well maintained. I would stay here again. However, those 2 outdoor chairs need to be looked at. When leaning back, they tilt back way too far so you bump into the glass or wall..

Perfect location, perfect view, perfect comfort, perfect amenities. The only problem is that we had to leave.

We really enjoyed our stay here, this Kihei condo was clean and comfortable. The breeze on the top floor is perfect so we did not miss the A/C. Mini shampoo/conditioner is provided but you will need to bring your own or buy some if you are staying longer than a couple of days. Location is very convenient and checking in/out was easy. I would definitely return!

Great property in an area that is easy driving distance from everything on Maui. Unit was very clean and had everything you would need. Perfect place to see the sunset every night too.

We enjoyed being on the border of Kihei and Wailea, and this property boasts an incredible view of Lanai and West Maui. Being on the top floor was a plus. There is no A/C, but the breeze is so great that we didn't need it!

Everything in the description was accurate and was as good as we hoped it would be. The unit was clean and had plenty of cleaning products as well as seasonings for cooking. The only thing I would note is that the living ceiling fan will not turn on without the light like the bedroom does. Other than that I enjoyed the stay and would do it again.

I couldn't be more thrilled with our experience here. Every day we couldn't wait to get back to the condo to walk through the door and be greeted by the view. I ended up sleeping on the sofa bed every night so I could hear the sound of the waves and be greeted by the view as the sun came up. The condo was clean, the building was quiet. The location was superb, an incredible sandy beach perfect for swimming was steps away. The afternoon breezes were delightful. Even the carpet was plush and luxurious. I will never stay anywhere else in Maui. I can't wait to return. It was sublime. Even the roosters were perfect.
