It is customary for the residents of the Kihei Surfside to gather each evening for cocktails on the shore near the tiki torches for a traditional Hawaiian sundown ceremony. This is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and fellow vacationers!

Kihei Surfside Resort is located in the 2900 block of S. Kihei Road, at the entrance of beautiful Wailea. This is the desert part of Maui, where the sun shines more than any other part of the island. The resort consists of an absolute oceanfront concrete building of 6 floors and 84 deluxe units with an elevator.

There are two very nice oceanfront restaurants within 100 yards of the resort. The Grand Wailea Hotel, The Shops at Wailea and Wailea/Makena Golf Courses are close by and Kahalui airport is just twenty-five minutes away.

Rental cars are available at the airport or in Kihei town. There is free parking on site. Just a few minutes from the airport are Costco, Wal-Mart and Sears. A short drive from the resort is Safeway, Foodland and Star Market, where you can stock up on groceries. Right across the parking lot from the Surfside is an upscale deli/grocery store for last minute items, and a yoga studio.

The world class golf facilities of Wailea and Makena are nearby. Windsurfing, and many other water activities are also available nearby. Some of the best snorkeling on Maui is steps from the property. The Pacific Foundation conducts their annual whale count from the Surfside property. The Kihei boat ramp, from where the pleasure boats and sightseeing/snorkeling tours depart, is a five minute walk.

Kihei town itself is only a few minutes away by car and boasts many fine restaurants, video and gift shops. Historical Lahaina and beautiful Kaanapali beach are a scenic 25 minute drive towards the western part of Maui.

We had a wonderful stay!

Everything was good besides the smelly blanket, dirty towel we found, amongst a few other things and a rude property manager who was careless about our issues and had a bad attitude. He was rude, short, unkind and would not apologize whatsoever and told me to contact another point of contact when he could have did that himself for the inconveniences. This left a bad taste in my mouth besides that the beautiful views were the highlight. The sofa bed is very uncomfortable and old but the kitchen is fully equipped which is great. It was so hot some days and no ac flowing in the unit just a cheap fan. I wouldn’t stay in this particular property again because customer service goes a long way but the views every day are stunning and the overall property is kept in good shape. There is a strange guy working at the front desk that kept calling his dog a derogatory terms which was very inappropriate and he had Some very weird energy and that type of language isn’t professional and concerning for the dog. Everything was ok overall but I wouldn’t stay here again. The best part is the ocean and the views

We had a very good stay. Everyone was quiet so it was a peaceful stay. We had lots of time with our son and family who live about a mile away. Love the large lawn and the BBQ area!

Everything comfortable and easy. Only wish for improvement: very noisy bathroom fan and no light without the fan.

Had a very nice stay at Kihei Surfside 505. The view from the lanai was fantastic, I could regularly see sea turtles. Very very short walk to a very nice beach - think it's actually closer to the beach than some properties that would be considered "on" the beach. Overall location was great. We were able to walk to the boat ramp to take a snorkel tour one morning. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. We were able to get beach chairs from the office. Can't think of anything else that we really needed during the stay. Would be nice if there was A/C. The week we stayed was hot. There are several fans in the unit, so we did ok with windows open and fans on, but a couple nights were still warm. Would definitely consider returning here for our next stay. Seemed like excellent value relative to other properties based on location, view, and amenities.

Nice property with great location. Entire property is very clean and well maintained. Lovely pool. No spa. Steps to the beach. 1 mile walk to restaurants. 15 min drive to grocery. Super park that is right next to property. Snorkel tours leave from boat launch next door. The restaurant in next building over is closed. Unit was clean and well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, toilet paper, soap, towels, etc. Property has beach chairs available for guests - must get from front desk. Great views from unit. Return communication was a bit delayed, took a couple days for reply. However, property owner’s agent did reply and was very accommodating. Would stay again!

It was a beautiful view, and condo. Gotti watch one of the most glorious sunsets of my life from their balcony. Over all well equipped. The construction outside was very loud and disruptive all day. We didn't realize it was right under the window and would disrupt our work day until the confirmation email explained it. Other than that absolutely no complaints. Well supplied kitchen on pots and pans, left over containers, and appliances. Though the coffee grinder didn't work for us, theythankfully provided a sample sized ground coffee that we used in a pinch. Also, we did leave a note and it should be replaced by the time anyone else would need it.

Perfect for our family of four (incl. 2 teenagers). We stayed here for a week. This condo has amazing view and the property is perfectly located for exploring the island, and has easy access to the beach. Everything was as advertised - well stocked kitchen, bathrooms and bedroom. There is no AC in the unit, but that was no issue for us mid June, when using the shades during the hottest hours of the day (it's ceiling and standing fans equipped). Excellent communication with owners. We would stay here again and recommend it in a heartbeat.
