Unbeatable location, well managed, reasonably priced..we keep coming back! Great for all ages but suits an adult crowd mostly. Older building but well maintained. Gorgeous lawn and views, next to the Kihei boat launch and Mana Kai hotel and restaurant next door. Small, nice pool, beautiful Keawakapu beach next door with stellar swimming and snorkeling.

Kihei Surfside is a condo building and I am sure all units are different. The location is on the very edge of Kihei and borders Wailea. If you want to walk everywhere it can be far for some but we walked always and thought it was much preferred to the constant traffic on the main street. The condominium building is...

Kihei Surfside is a well maintained condo building with a wonderful atmosphere. It is located in South Kihei with steps to Keawakapu Beach and Wailea. It is also an easy walk to Kamaole Beach III. We enjoyed the pool which was heated and never crowded. Thank you to Kate, Josh, Dan and Matt for being so pleasant, helpful and maintaining...

Beautiful condos in a beautiful location. Spectacular ocean views from, looks like, any condo (ours was corner condo and still we enjoyed sitting outside on the patio overlooking ocean and immaculate plush green grass, kind of golf course quality. Actually this condo on the 2nd floor was so great, we felt like we had our own stairway to it. Nicely...

After spending two weeks in paradise, our family is already trying to plan our next getaway to this amazing location! Perfect destination: gorgeous lawn for the children to play on, pool, and a short walk to the beach! Movies are available to "rent" in the office, which are perfect for children needing to relax after a busy day. Condo units...

The most beautiful lawn in Maui in front of one of the most beautiful views of Lanai, Ko'olave, and Molokini on the South side. Great restaurants in walking distance, quiet in the evening. 10 minutes to Makena Beach, but no need to go further than the adjacent beach 100 feet away.

The answer is YES! Decided to do a staycation here with the missus. Most convenient and reasonably priced place we stayed on maui. I cannot stress enough how great the location is here, minutes from kihei town with a great view of Mauis south coast and molokini. There is no air conditioning but due to the design of the building...

We've stayed at the Surfside several times and loved it each time we've been. The units are roomy yet cosy too and the location is ideal, between Kihei proper and Wailea. Good grounds, nearby beaches for snorkeling and sunning, not far from the shores - what's not to like?

This place is awesome. This is our 4th time staying there. Everyone is so nice and you get to meet so many people. We were married on the grounds there at Kihei Surfside in April, 2006. We have also stayed there in 2000, 2003 and just this year Nov. 19-30th. The place is clean, the grounds are kept very nice....

My husband and I spent an amazing week at Kihei surfside #403. I initially found another unit through Home Away but was told that my length of stay of 5 nights was too short even though there were no stated minimum in the listing. I was dismayed to find that the majority of the listings were managed by the same...

  • Shower door - Would anybody care to guess on the bacteria count???
  • 70's chipped porcelain tub, taps etc so old they could possibly not clean anymore...
  • Screens that are perfectly removable for cleaning look as though they have never been cleaned.
  • stain just inside the bedroom door - hard to avoid it in bare feet!
  • nasty looking closet door that is not working so well
  • Closet door track unpainted galvanized material with the door hanging precariously in thin air.
  • rusty screws with paint dribbles on old style plug in plate
  • dirt embedded in light switch with rusty screws
