Overview

About the property

Large 2 Bedroom, 2 Full Baths Newly Remodeled With Fantastic View

Modern, fully updated spotless condo with a great view of the beach. Everything is new, from the stainless appliance package to the commercial sized washer and dryer, Egyptian cotton beach towels and super high quality linens. Two large bedrooms and two full baths. Over 1000 square feet of open, airy space.

Please feel free to call me at 360-929-0413 (Seattle time Zone) to discuss any specific needs or fees.

-great ocean view: take in the outstanding view through the wall to wall, floor to ceiling glass wall in the living room/kitchen

-completely remodeled: everything is new, including appliances, commercial washer/dryer, furniture, bedding and all utensils, right down to the Henckel knives

-great, central location: walk to shopping, dozens of restaurants, beaches, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling and more. There are days we never use our car!

-two large bedrooms, each with a cal-king bed

-two full bathrooms, bright with new tile, granite and cabinets

-fully air conditioned, one of the few units in the building outfitted with a state of the art ductless, silent air conditioning system.

-free Wi-Fi, long distance to us and Canada, cable

-free parking

-beach toys included, snorkels sets, chairs, cooler, umbrella, thick beach towels, sand toys, boogie boards

-high quality Costco inflatable queen bed available for the kids

Every time we enter our condo, we are struck by how beautiful the view is. One wall of the living room is entirely made of glass, and the light fills the whole space. The lanai is over 16 feet wide and provides a great space to hang out, watch the waves and surfers, and enjoy the tropical weather.

Update, on 9/24/13 we installed a $9k sliding glass door unit even though the old unit functioned fine. The update is just part of our commitment to make sure our guests have a great experience. I am so happy with this change. The difference the insulated, double pane glass made was huge. Very energy efficient and so quiet. There are only 12 units in all of the building with these doors. I wouldn't stay in a unit without them.

We have furnished our condo to be modern and comfortable. You will find full sized couch and chairs, two king sized beds, tons of storage, large closets. The kitchen is outfitted with a new whirlpool appliance suite including microwave, dishwasher, self cleaning glass topped range and refrigerator with ice maker. We even have special outlets that have USB chargers built into them. The kitchen is outfitted with top quality pans, knives and small appliances.

Free WiFi, phone calls to the us and Canada. A large flat screen TV in the living room and another flat screen in one bedroom. Both have blue ray players attached.

Island surf is in a great central location. Immediately to the north is a area the locals call 'the Triangle'. It has lots of shops and scores of restaurants and night spots. Across the street is Kalama park, offering playgrounds, roller hockey, volleyball, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and wide open spaces to play catch or just hang on the grass. You can watch your friends and family play in the surf right from the front room.

A short drive to the south puts you in the heart of Wailea with upscale dining, shopping and more wonderful beaches.

Island surf houses many great businesses. You can rent bicycles, get a manicure or spa treatment, book a scuba dive, rent surf boards, or eat a great plate lunch all without never leaving the building.

There is a pool and BBQ area on the second floor, both with ocean views.

Amenities include:

-air conditioning in ALL rooms.

-two flat screen tvs, with blue ray players

-free phone calls to the us and Canada

-free wireless internet

-beach toys including snorkel gear, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, umbrella, coolers, sand toys

-huge washer and dryer, ironing board and iron but dryer has steam function so probably will not need to iron!

-new kitchen: dishwasher, microwave, glass topped self cleaning oven, coffee maker and grinder, blender, toaster, tea pot, rice cooker, high end knives, pots and pans.

-our on-island contact is within walking distance to the condo and will promptly attend to any issues you may encounter.

If a one bedroom could fit your needs, please look at our other unit, # 698750

About Matt Keller

We live in the Seattle area and have been visiting Hawaii frequently for the past 15 years. After visiting different islands, we settled on Maui as the best combination of recreation and amenities. We believe you simply cannot do better than Maui. There is a reason the movie stars vacation here!

After looking at scores of condos, we snapped up our unit in the Island Surf. It had the best combination of views, layout, and location. We have found that we can park our car for days at a time and walk to everything. Our unit was dated and tired, so we launched into a full scale remodel. We love the newness of the unit now and the modern feel.

Our plan is to retire and split our time between Maui and Seattle area. Until then, we wanted to share our great location and remodeled unit with others.

We hope you enjoy Maui as much as we do.

Aloha,

Matt and Colleen Keller

Matt Keller purchased this condo in 2012

Why Matt Keller chose Kihei

We have seen Island Surf on all of our trips to Maui. In fact, we have rented surf boards on the bottom floor in the building. When a unit came for sale, we jumped at the opportunity. It has such a great location, is within walking distance to so many amenities, and the unit has great views with a open and airy feel. It also was over 1000 square feet, huge by Hawaiian standards. After looking at Island Surf for so many years, we are still in awe that we were able to buy here.

What makes this condo unique

The best benefit of Island Surf is the view. Following close behind is the size and layout of the unit, 1000 square feet with one wall entirely of glass providing a great, open feeling. Combine that with the central location and ability to walk to so many attractions and you just can't beat it.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my friends so we could get a break from the Canadian winter. We loved the location relative to the food trucks and restaurants and accessibility to the highway.

Within the condo itself, highlights for us was having access to beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and beach toys! Having extra towels was a plus. The condo had a great selection of spices and we made our breakfast each day and some dinners.

When it came time to leave, one of my friends realized she lost her passport and Matt was super gracious about the situation. We can't thank you enough for that.

Highly recommend this condo, great location, clean and great service!

This condo has everything you could want!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with all aspects of this unit. From A/C in the bedrooms and main area to all the appliances, stocked pantry and fridge, ice maker in the fridge, coolers, snorkel gear, beach chairs, towels and matts, washer and dryer. BBQ/pool area, ample parking. Huge comfortable beds and pillows. Easy check in. Great views from the nice sized deck and excellent location of the unit. Matt and Colleen's recommendations for things to do and all the great helpful comments in the guest book from previous guests. Honestly can't think of a single thing to improve upon. Matt and Colleen, you guys absolutely thought of everything and we were so comfortable. We can't thank you enough for allowing us to stay in your unit!

Owner's Response: Mike, Thanks so much for the review and for staying with us. The activity sheet I provide has some great ideas, some many locals don't even know about. We'll keep those in the club. We try and provide everything you need for a great trip. Bring some flip-flops, a toothbrush and a bathing suit and you are good to go! Matt and Colleen

Excellent location on Maui

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It was great being in Kihei with a beach right across the street and walking distance to great places to eat and a market. Loved the fact that there was an AC unit in each room. Also, that beach mats and chairs were provided. The condo is very nice and it felt like we were at home.
