PLEASE NOTE: Bookings in this unit are for 1 or 2 guests only. The unit SLEEPS A MAXIMUM OF TWO PEOPLE and 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 lanais.

This 5th floor oceanfront condo at the Kihei Surfside Resort is located on the sought-after ocean side of the building, and has an expansive ocean view from the kitchen, living room, dining area and lanai. It is one of the larger, 1 bedroom / 1.5 bath units (680 sq ft). The view of the ocean and its abundant wildlife is absolutely spectacular.

The unit was completely gutted and fully renovated in 2021 to a very high standard. The unit has air conditioning in both the living room and bedroom. The condo’s décor and soothing color palette are drawn from, and blend into, its natural surroundings to create a peaceful oasis for our guests. The kitchen and vanities and hallway and bedroom are finished in exquisite imported custom French Country cabinetry with quartz countertops. The entry hall, kitchen, living room and bedroom have gorgeous mute-step eucalyptus vinyl plank flooring. The bathrooms are finished in Italian porcelain tile. Original giclée artwork of the Island of Maui is featured throughout the unit. This attention to detail, in addition to its prime oceanfront location in the building, makes this condo truly exceptional.

The attractive island-style kitchen is fully equipped with premium stainless steel appliances, including a refrigerator with ice maker, full-size range, dishwasher, multi-function microwave oven, garbage disposal and a variety of small appliances including coffee maker, four-slice toaster, blender, and hand mixer. There is also a large selection of high quality pots and pans, baking pans, knives, with ample dishes, glasses and cutlery.

The living room has a new 65 inch flat-screen smart TV and a Blu-Ray/DVD player, stylish high-end furnishings, a Turkish area rug and a multi-speed marine-grade ceiling fan. All lighting is dimmable. There is free wireless high-speed Internet and telephone with free long distance calling to the United States and Canada.

The oceanfront dining area features a blond rattan table with round glass top, and 4 matching upholstered rattan armchairs.

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

The bedroom has a new Posturepedic King-sized bed, multi-speed marine-grade ceiling fan, French Country furnishings and appointments with quartz tops, plantation shutters, full-size mirrored closet, reading lamps with convenience outlets, and digital security safe.

The master bathroom has a soaker bathtub with shower / hand shower and soft-close glass doors, a lovely French Country vanity with quartz countertop and premium fixtures. The matching half bath has been finished to the same exacting standards. Both bathrooms have American Standard one-piece 'select flush' toilets, Panasonic 'whisper-quiet' exhaust fans, and dimmable lighting.

The unit is fully equipped with utensils, fresh linens and towels, iron/ironing board, hairdryer, beach towels and a cooler. Umbrellas, boogie boards and snorkel gear are NOT supplied, but are often left behind in the units by other guests – no guarantees. The Kihei Surfside office loans out beach chairs free of charge. Coin laundry facilities are available on site.

This unit provides the best that Maui has to offer; an outstanding condo, situated in the best location in the building, which itself is right on the ocean at the border of Kihei and Wailea; the sunniest and driest part of the island. You will sleep to the sound of waves, and awaken to breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, West Maui Mountains and Kamaole 1, 2 and 3 beaches.

The Kihei Surfside Resort is located at 2936 S. Kihei Road, South Kihei 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 Kihei Surfside Resort consists of an absolute oceanfront concrete building of 6 floors and 84 deluxe units with an elevator. The building underwent an extensive makeover during the summer of 2015, when it was closed for six months. Each unit received new windows, doors and railings, and the building itself had a complete concrete restoration and paint. 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 (about $50), a shuttle bus and public transportation.

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

Another unique feature of the property is that we have a 2 acre, immaculately kept oceanfront lawn area with dozens of loungers, with a heated swimming pool and deluxe barbecue facilities. In season, there are daily whale sightings from both the grounds and 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. has been in business since 2003. We run our business from Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. We personally own several units in the Kihei Surfside building, and Lake Country, British Columbia.

In Hawaii, we are not a property manager, but rather represent our own units as well as act as the online face and name for other friends and relatives within the Kihei Surfside Community who self-manage their properties and advertise them on the internet. Together, we have the largest selection of properties to rent at the Kihei Surfside, including many in the prime locations. We are registered in Hawaii as a Transient Accommodations Operator. We have an on island representative who is available in case any issues arise with any of the units.

We had trouble with the door code for the first 12 hours of our stay. Hard to get a hold of someone to help us, but once we got that fixed we truly enjoyed our stay! The condo is beautifully renovated and the views are amazing. We would definitely stay here again!

We've visited Maui approximately 20 times. This unit was one of the top as far cleanliness, updated and stocked! We were in the elevator one day and was talking to someone from a local cleaning service the cleaned 23 units at Surfside. They asked what unit we were staying in. They said our unit was the best 1 bedroom in the building. We will definitely book this unit again! Mahalo, Michelle and Ray

We had an amazing trip to Maui and unit 502 at Kihei Surfside was perfect! We loved everything about it. It has been completely remodeled and is gorgeous. The views of the ocean, pool and sunsets are incredible. We have no complaints whatsoever about the unit or the complex. We would absolutely stay there again, no questions.

This property is stunning and photos don’t do the view/location justice. Such a peaceful, chill area with so much to do within walking distance. All the good vibes made up for the early morning wildlife noise and the heat. Honestly, didn’t mind it all that much because everything else contributed to an excellent experience. Even saw turtles in the water from our balcony!! 10/10 recommend

Loved the location in Kihei, near great restaurants and shops, grocery stores, walking distance to the beach. Nicely updated property with all the essentials in the condo. Amazing view of beautiful grounds, pool and ocean. We saw turtles every morning and beautiful sunsets every evening. I was concerned these units had no air conditioning, but having the windows open, listening to the waves with the ocean breeze was perfect!

Amazing accommodations with amenities galore!! Centrally located. Plenty of parking. Comfy bed with convenient master en-suite and bonus powder room. Great cooking kitchen that’s got all the things!! Pictures don’t do this place justice. That lanai is worth it. Splurge. Mostly slept on couch in living room in front of lanai n the breeze n sounds of ocean crashing on the rocks below. Mahalo. I’ll b back.

Overall Our stay was great! The condo was spacious, clean, updated and had all of the items we needed to be comfortable. We loved the balcony and how close the ocean was. Only drawback was that the there was no A/C and made sleeping a bit more difficult.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in 502! The views are absolutely breathtaking - the pictures do not do the view justice!! The location is perfect!!! Literally steps from the beach where you can snorkel or just soak up the sun in the sand. We saw sea turtles daily from the lanai! And there is a little cove to the right of the property where you can see sea turtles feeding or sunning on the beach. The unit itself is beautifully updated and is very comfortable and roomy for 2. We loved everything about our stay and look forward to coming back!

Property was very clean with everything you need. On site staff very accommodating. Pool area was kept in excellent order. The beach was the best with nice snorkeling. Short walk to town if you don't have a car. No air conditioning in the condo but with the lanai doors and bedroom windows open there was a nice breeze to keep us cool. We'll be back!

Unbelievable views, perfect grounds, snorkeling and turtles right out front, beautiful condo with the best of everything. We had a wonderful stay. The unit was fantastic. The facilities were wonderful. The on-site staff were amazing and helpful. The rental management staff were wonderful and very quick to respond to any questions. We are already figuring out a date to return. This location is really amazing. Kihei is classy, but more relaxed than North Shore locations. I’m so glad we found this spot. We grilled fresh fish we picked up in town on the fantastic barbecues on site. We borrowed great beach chairs from the office and used them many times. We borrowed the light up bocce ball set from the office and played at night on the wonderful lawn. It only took 25 minutes to get to the airport area and 45 to Lahaina. An hour drive puts you at the beautiful bays up North or to Paia. South of this spot are wonderful beaches and small bays with fantastic snorkeling. Kihei has a great kicked back night life, and just South in Wailea you’ll find more night life, but just a little more conservative. The condo itself was beautiful. Very fresh furnishings and cabinetry. The bed was great. All of the appliances were top-notch as well as utensils, cookware, etc. The linens were high grade. The entire place was sparkling clean when we arrived. The beautiful prints of beautiful photos from around the island were amazing. It was pretty much perfect in every way. We did not want to leave, and we will return. Highly recommended.

We figured the property would have A/C. Definitely did not. Otherwise it was as described. Knowing it didn't have a/c beforehand might have swayed our decision to stay at this property.

We loved every minute of our stay at this property! We are already talking about our next visit to Maui and this place is on the top of our list for where to stay when we come back.

My wife & I stayed at property for the week of our wedding. The pictures of this place don’t do it justice! The view is amazing from the minute you open the front door. We look forward to come back and using this property in the future.

Couldn't have a better view and place to chill. We know this now moving up to Kaanapali resort. Feel stressed out comparatively.
