Travellers' Choice
Our Condo resort is located in south Kihei, just on the border of Wailea, on Maui. Our renovated resort has 82 luxury condos, all with oceanfront views. We are walking distance to some of the most beautiful beaches and revered restaurants on the island. Quieter than most of the resorts, you can find a shady spot under a palm to enjoy the view of Lanai, Kahoolawe, and West Maui mountains. A perfect place to watch whales during the season. Come and make our beautiful island retreat yours the next time you visit Maui.

We really enjoyed Kihei Surfside. It is directly on the ocean and the views are amazing. We came in February and were treated to spectacular Whale sightings. Bring your binoculars. Our unit 505 was well appointed although the shower was a bit old/dated. We did not need AC as it was relatively cool but if you come in the summer that may or may not be an issue. There is no resort fee which is nice and they have a lovely pool. We couldn't use the lawn game supplies due to Covid but hopefully that will change soon. Most of the people who rent or live here are very quiet and it seems like a retirement community. We had two teenagers and were able to respect the quiet atmosphere. But if you have younger kids and don't want to worry about them making noise and bothering neighbors this may not be a fit. I loved how quiet it was and this is one of the reasons I would come back. It is right nextdoor to a lovely sand beach that you only have to walk a short ways to get to. OH, and the sunsets right out your lanai are amazing.

Loved it here. Great location just between Kihei and Wailea. Keawakapu Beach next door is amazing. Saw quite a few turtles and tropical fish there while snorkeling in late November. The grounds at this place are very well kept. We saw the groundskeepers at work everyday and they always did a very nice job. Pool was also always heated to a perfect temp. Got our rental through Maui Tropical Realty and found them very easy to work with as we had to work through some C19-related cancellations. Highly recommend staying here.

The location of this complex is amazing but there are two elderly "owners" who are unfriendly, aggressive and rude towards families and children and it unfortunately over shadowed our time there. The two husbands approach the children directly and tell them things like to go back to their units. The manager was friendly but essentially did nothing to help us. I have been travelling to Maui for 30 years, as a teen and now as a parent and I have never experienced such rude and non family oriented people as at Kihei Surfside. I will not return.

It is always unfortunate when we have an unhappy guest. I was glad you took the time to come and speak with me about your experience. I’m sorry you didn’t come to me before the end of your stay when I couldn’t affect the outcome and your negative review. My staff and I strive to make the Kihei Surfside a place for all our guests to enjoy. We have House Rules, which are listed in our handout when you registered your car. I'm not sure that you had the time to read the brochure because if you had, you would have realized that we do not allow loud pool games, floats and/or activity on the lawn after quiet hours. Some of our guests are older, this is true. Several of the guests here at the same time you were, commented on your party being overly loud and disrespectful towards your unit neighbors and in the pool area. At one point, one of the gentlemen you had in your party, threatened one of the Grumpy old men you referred to in your review. I have to say that the majority of our guests enjoy the resort and have an overall good experience when staying here. Our house rules may be stricter than some others, but that is why we have return guests, year after year. The house rules help create a place where one can rest and play without disturbing or being disturbed. Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn. Thank you for your review. We will be more proactive in our attempt to inform our guests about our House Rules in the future to avoid disappointing outcomes.

We stayed here September 2019. It's an incredible location with right on the ocean views that are great to see. There is a walking path between the condo and the ocean where people stop to look at the view. They also look right in the condo sometimes. But we never had the temperature at night go below 80 degrees in the condo. and even that is ok if there are fans but there were not! At least not fans that worked. The ceiling fans were completely worn out and could not even stir the air on their highest setting. And the floor fan in the one bedroom was completely choked with dust. Finally took it to the office and had the maintenance man blow the piles of dust out of it with their power air pump. When my wife and I used that it would only blow enough air to cool one of us. The second bedroom had a tiny fan that was plugged in inside a locked closet so it could not be moved and it could not be aimed at the bed because the wire was too short. For a condo charging luxury prices, this was really poorly taken care of. I've written notes to both the owner and manager but have heard nothing for more than a month.

Dear Visitor - I am the General Manager of the Kihei Surfside and want you to know I hadn't been appraised of your problems and am so sorry to hear your visit was not a good one. The majority of the visitors who are lucky enough to get into 101 each year are normally quite pleased with the unit. As you say, it's right on the ocean with unobstructed views of Lanai and Kahoolawe. The weather has been very hot this past summer and fall. I would say ridiculously hot. Record temps each day make it difficult to cool off during the night sometimes. I thank you for the heads up on the fans in the room, I will be checking with maintenance for this unit today! I'm so sorry I wasn't notified about your troubles. My Staff and I try our hardest to make each and every visit here a good one. If you will come back, I promise to be available to you, should you have any problems in the future here. Thank you for your review, even though it was only one star. We need to hear the bad with the good. It can only help us to be better going forward!

This was the perfect place for us to spend a relaxing week in Maui. Having read all of the great reviews we knew this place would be nice but it truly exceeded our expectations. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the grounds are very peaceful. Really enjoyed watching the beautiful birds as well as the turtles on the rocks below. Though we enjoyed spending time at the many beautiful beaches in Maui our favourite spot was at the edge of the grass overlooking the rocks and ocean. Here we rested comfortably in our lounge chairs under swaying palm trees enjoying the beautiful breeze - heaven on earth! (and no sand). Though there are great restaurants nearby we chose to eat in for the most part to enjoy the beautiful view and sunsets (stopped at Costco after landing in Kahului to stock up on drinks and food - also a nice Foodland store nearby). We were very happy with the location of this property. It felt somewhat secluded yet everything you need is near by.
