Perfect R&R Spot on Maui
Booked this condo for a girls getaway on Maui. My mother sent me an Excel doc with 42 properties options (you can read that again) but we decided on *this* condo because of the price, sunset views, beach gear, and location. I know picking the *perfect* spot can be daunting, so here’s the TLDR:
1) Views — I would come back here again because of the views from the lanai. We loved sipping coffee in the morning, admiring the ocean view and mountains in the distance. In the evening, we’d cut up cheese and crackers and enjoy a glass of wine with phenomenal sunset views. At night, I slept on the pull out couch bed falling asleep to the sounds of lapping waves.
2) Beach — In the property pictures, you won’t see a beach. But Keawakapu Beach is less than 5 min walk from the condo. The beach wasn’t terribly crowded and has excellent snorkeling (sea turtles included) in the morning before the trade winds pick up. When the trade winds were unbearable and blowing sand in our face, we’d sunbathed on the property’s green lawn. If you walk along the shoreline towards the Kihei boat ramp, there’s a small secluded shore where we saw beached sea turtles daily.
3) Property & Amenities - Overall, the property was bustling but quiet. A few families with school aged children but mostly a mix of of honeymooners, retirees, girls trips, and couples. The condo is 10 min drive to the grocery store and restaurant area. Close enough to the essentials but far enough away that I didn’t feel like we were in the “tourist part” of Kihei. The condo is perfect for two, four would be snug but doable. Kitchen was fully equipped, we ate at home a few nights. Beach gear included 2 chairs, several beach towels, 2 beach umbrellas, a cooler, and some sand toys for little ones. (Sadly, no snorkel gear when we were there). Outside shower to rinse off sand. We used the onsite washer/dryer for a midweek load. Office has bocci/croquet etc. to borrow.
We had ambitious plans to cover all of Maui but opted for more R&R. We couldn’t resist the simplicity of the lanai views and beach. Whatever your occasion is, you won’t regret your decision to stay here!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share such a detailed review of the experience had on your girls getaway to Maui. It will be of great assistance to those considering a vacation to Kihei and wanting to be assured of the scenic views and surrounding ambiance as well as the location to beach, restaurants and shopping. Thank you for your high recommendation - we do hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back next time you are looking for some R&R in Maui. Mahalo! ~Rosies~
My family and I enjoyed our stay so much! Love the place, the view and the people. Looking at visiting again next year :)
Thank you for your 5-star review Nikki! Great to hear that your family enjoyed themselves so much you are already contemplating a return visit. It's highly gratifying that you would consider us again. Hope to see you soon. Mahalo!
Excellent location and condo
My family of 4 stayed for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The location of the condo is perfect with ocean views you would pay a fortune for at the larger resorts. The local beach is also large, clean, and quite empty compared to the resorts. Lots of reef to explore with snorkeling 100 feet from your door. Quiet facility, huge lawn to enjoy, 2 good restaurants right next door with perfect sunset views. Condo size was just right for the 4 of us with the pullout queen sofa. Any more than 4 would be too tight. Everything is updated. Functional kitchen fully stocked with utensils etc. There is no AC but really not needed with the cool ocean breeze through the lanai screen doors. Booking and communication was very organized and responsive. Highly recommended spot...
Thank you so much for taking the time to share such a detailed review. We are happy to hear that you and you family had such a great experience with us at the Kihei Surfside and that you found our location and views to be perfect. Thank you for your high recommendation. We do hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back on a return vacation. Mahalo! ~Rosies~
Loved the property. The tv did not work which was a bit of a problem. I am a neat nick and I did feel the place needs a really good cleaning. The view and location is spectacular.
It was a great place to stay. Beautiful sunsets. Rent a car you will need one to explore island.
Beautiful place on the beach in Maui. Thanks Larry!
