Our charming and inviting condo is located in sunny South Kihei, right in the heart of some of the best swimming and snorkel Beaches. (But there is also surfing and boogie boarding, and of course stand-up paddle boarding.) Actually right across from condo you can rent the board, cruise out and watch the turtles glide along with you.
‘It’s just too cool to describe’ as one guest told me after he announced that he wants to buy my condo.
Well back to the condo:
** View: Our front wall of this spacious condo has TOP to BOTTOM GLASS, making it bright and sunny all day long. (No worries we do have lanai shades to ‘cool’ things down if needed). By staying in our unit you will enjoy breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, park and coastline with the famous shore lines of Wailea and Makena Beach in the distance.
You can also see other islands like Lanai and Kahoolawe.
Being on the Top floor allows for UNOBSTRUCTED views and privacy throughout the whole unit.
While enjoying your morning and evening beverage on the lanai (patio), you can take in magnificent sun rises or sunsets.
From November through April you can witness the awesome sight of humpback whales frolicking in the ocean. (See wonderful picture taken from guest on my website).
This condo is our favorite ‘home away from home’ and we share with you everything we appreciate at our vacation.
Besides a remodeled and fully equipped kitchen we include some of our favorite books, CDs, Maui maps and tour guides, snorkel tips and activity guidebooks.
Also beach chairs, ice chest, sun umbrella, boogie boards and some snorkel gear.
We provide you with beach towels and also warm blankets for visiting Haleakala Mountain.
** Our bedroom has an upgraded comfy double pillow top KING Size mattress.
Designed for comfort but support at the same time, which is a MUST for my ‘achy’ little back. Without a good restful sleep my vacation mood
will drop into the ‘nagging zone’. (My husband’s words, not mine :-)
so he didn't mind spending the extra money there! We do have a small flat screen TV
as well. To keep things comfy at all seasons we have ceiling and standing fans besides our AC system.
Off the bedroom is our bathroom that includes a full tub/shower combo.
** Our spacious living area offers an upgraded sleeper sofa and even though we are trying our best to make sure that everybody is comfy we believe the condo is best suited for 2 adults and one or 2 kids. (Just because a sleeper couch will always feel like that.)
Off the living room we have a dining set for 4 and it’s my favorite place to respond to your e-mails while watching tourist play in the inviting crystal clear water outside.
You can pack light as the washer/dryer in the unit is convenient and loved by everyone.
You are a short walk to our Pool and BBQ area on the second floor.
*** Our Beaches: You can stroll along the white sandy beach of KAMAOLE BEACH 1, which is only a few comfortable steps away. Yes you have to cross the street, (there is a crosswalk) but it’s only a 20 mph speed limit and mostly there are just as many walkers as cars on the road. No long or steep hills to climb ever. Kamaole beach 1 is known for wide sandy shores, gentle surf and the least crowded. (Ranked as one of the top family beaches on Maui with no undercurrent or rocks for you to worry about) Ranked by GUESTS and not in a travel brochure (paid by advertisers,) but that’s just the way we like it. (Keeping things ‘quiet’.)
There is plenty of room for playing in the sand, sunbathing, reading and still have some privacy.
(I have recorded a movie of the beach and if you are interested let me know and I will send you a U-Tube link.)
The beach is perfect for swimming and boogie boarding in the afternoon when a few gentle waves will roll in.
There are also many great snorkel spots for beginners, and you can start in about 4 feet of water and see colorful fishes or a turtle warming up by floating in the warm sallow water. (They are not dangerous +will move as soon as you come to close)
For the advanced swimmer, there is no end for how much fun you will have exploring out there.
If you stay for 2 weeks you could explore a NEW beach every day and only drive a few minutes. That includes the spectacular and famous Makenna Beach. (More info condo.)
** Stores and restaurants: Many of the best restaurants, bars and shopping centers are ALL within walking distance! (Including a grocery store with fresh produce open 24/7 within 2 blocks.) You can walk conveniently to many great nearby shops and restaurants or you can explore and splurge through the world famous shops, hotel bars and restaurants at WAILEA. “Wine and dine with the rich and famous as my friend calls it”, since she saw a few Hollywood stars there over the years. Yes you can drive there in 7 minutes and frequently we walk mornings from the condo to the hotels and go for a swim there before we head back. This is a great way to explore and maybe plan on coming back later.
Our unit is popular with wedding couples or guests, since it is very near the famous wedding resorts of Wailea and Makena Beach. (5-10 min.) but in a much ‘friendlier’ budget.
As long as you allow yourself to go out and explore the experiences will truly be magnificent. Our location on Maui is so simple and convenient it makes everything so much more stress free and doubles your relaxation time instantly. I know I am not the only one in love with this island and condo as 47% of guests are returning year after year.
Are you ready to join us? I am ready to help you explore the Aloha in you.
**About the condo building:
Island Surf is a relatively small complex, (about 30 vacation rental units) which keeps the pool un-crowded and very often you will be the only one there.
It has more the feeling of you being amongst the locals than tourists with many conveniences right there for you. You can take surf lessons right across from the condo or watch them try it from the condo lanai. You can also rent everything from surf or stand up paddle boards, kayaks, bikes and scooters.
The building is located right on South Kihei Rd. and is known for some traffic noise during peak hours but it slows down in the evening once people are gone from the beaches. Our unit being on the top floor and the bedroom in the back is in a much more superior location than some other units below us or facing on S. Kihei Rd. directly.
