Guest Review for Unit 506

Comments:Perfect View, Relaxed Setting, Fun in Sun, Swimming, Accessible - Simply the Best!
Experience:We love the Kihei Surfside! This was our second time staying at this property and we enjoyed it even more this time around! We brought our 7 year old, she loved the view and pool and access to beach, swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding. It would be nice if the desk checked out boards, but otherwise we found the Snorkel Shop is cheaper than Snorkel Bobs for boogie board rental - and we had a blast! We love location, the unit was beautifully renovated and the new exterior glass just makes everything so dreamy! Also, we needed a few things from the landlord and she responded right away that same morning! Feeling very blessed and can't wait to come back!

Comments:Gorgeous view & well furnished
Experience:We loved our stay in 506! The view is unbeatable & proximity to Keawakapu beach made for nice long walks. No AC but the airflow through the unit was impressive. Would absolutely book again!

Comments:Nothing short of fabulous!
Experience:We have stayed multiple times at Kihei Surfside, recently in 506. Long time friends also joined us in another unit. We had an absolutely fantastic time. The unit is well appointed, the views and location are simply the best. We BBQ'd every night we were on property - a social spot for all that gather there. The snorkelling is wonderful. In our first full day we swam with the turtles, saw dolphins from our lanai and watched whales breaching in the distance while sitting on the beach just 5 minutes from our front door! The onsight office staff are just great guiding us on anything we asked. We have been travelling to Maui for many many years and KSS is like a home away from home - we are already booked to go back in April.....

Comments:Wonderful Stay for a small family
Experience:Our first time in Maui, and the first time to Hawaii with our 4 year old son. The location and unit were both PERFECT for us. The resort is situated so that it is very private and quiet, yet mere steps to a beautiful sandy beach. The rocky shoreline just off the property itself made for really fun tidepool exploration and so many sea turtles nibbling off the rocks in plain sight! We didn't snorkel here but saw many who did and seemed to be enjoying themselves. There was a small pool, shuffle board, and small putting green area. Tip - There is morning yoga on the lawn, I think run by the yoga studio in the resort next door and complimentary coffee, also in the mornings.

There is no AC but with the windows all open, those famous trade wind breezes kept us just right. I was a little worried at first but honestly, we preferred it this way, falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The unit was super clean, and even had tiny toiletries for us to use. There were two hair dryers, a well stocked kitchen (missing a good sized colander), full sized appliances, coffeemaker, toaster, etc. Not promised in the listing but we were happy to find: beach towels, umbrellas, boogie boards, and snorkel gear. Lanai had a glass railing which we were glad to find as it is safer than the open rails for kids. There was Cable TV with plenty of kid friendly programming and strong Wifi. The reception office was helpful and even had popsicles for the kids. :) Tip about the sofabed: My hubby tried it the first night (due to mix up with toddler bed delivery date) and he said he wouldn't have been able to sleep there for more than 1 or 2 nights. Might be ok for kids or teens.

We ordered a toddler bed from one of the local baby supply rental companies who delivered right to us. We put it in the living room area which ate up a lot of space, but it worked out fine since we rarely hung out in the unit.

There seemed to be a good mix of newbies like us and regulars. Everyone was super friendly and lovely. All the kids were so well behaved. Quiet hours were well heeded by all.

There is a small convenience store located next door but we did not have a good experience related to cleanliness and just basic level of service. However, markets are just a short drive away. We got to walk through some of the other more developed areas with larger resorts and while lively and with many amenities, returning to Kihei Surfside was like an exhale of relief. We just loved it and cannot wait to return!

Comments:Perfect Stay
Experience:Our stay in this unit was absolutely perfect. Everything we needed was in the condo and in great working order. The view was magnificent - sunset from our balcony every night, whales breeching every day, lovely breeze so no air conditioning was needed. Very clean and convenient for what we needed. I highly recommend this unit and building if you want a quiet piece of paradise.

Comments:Beautiful condo right on the beach
Experience:We recently spent four nights at the Kihei Surfside and loved every minute. The location of the condo can't be beat, the pool and grounds are clean and nice, and the view is stunning. The beach within walking distance is one of our favorites and it is a quick and easy drive to any number of restaurants, activities, etc. The entire building was fairly quiet (perfect for us) and a nice mix of families, couples, etc. Our unit was well furnished, with a very nice bathroom and kitchen. I wouldn't imagine the pull out bed would be very comfortable for an adult for too many nights, but it was just fine for our daughter. The owners were also really responsive and helpful during booking and the one time we contacted the on-site coordinator, he solved our problem within a few hours. Overall a lovely place to stay, and we will definitely be back!

Experience:We really enjoyed the accommodations in Kihei, Maui. The location to the restaurants, beaches and other activities are top notch. The facility, cleanliness and amenities are some of the best I have stayed in. I have been to Maui many times over the years and I can say that this trip is one of the best ever. The people at the facility are curtious, helpful, accommodating and friendly. Coffee on the Lani each morning is a wonderful way to wake up.

Experience:Weather was cool this year, so sitting on the Lanai was a real challenge with the high winds. Hope we are back to better weather next year!!!!!

Comments: Nice Unit
Experience: Nice unit, with great views. The 1 bedroom + 1 bath units are a lot smaller than the 1 bedroom - 1.5 bath units, so we were a lot more cramped this time.

Comments: Perfect location, lawn, sand and snorkel
Experience: This was our third visit to the Surfside. Renting from Rosies Rentals has always been top notch. The only complaint is we couldn't find a reservation for next year during the Christmas , New Year holiday.

Comments: Paradise Found
Experience: Unit 506 at the Surfside was excellent. A great view at waters edge, lovely grassed lawn area, away from the busy thoroughfare of Kihei. Staff was excellent and Rosie's Rentals professional, trustworthy and attentative to clients needs. We would stay again.

Comments: Paradise. I am partial to the Surfside having had a family condo there for 33 years. However the upgrades in this unit are fantastic and there are no other condos in Kihei that has this perfect or view and grounds!!!
Experience: has been wonderful with Larry and VRBO. This unit has been accurately represented. I stayed at another complex over Christmas 2012, also through a VRBO located in North Kihei and was terribly disappointed. The owners should have been ashamed of themselves.
