| 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

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!

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: Fabulous accomodation!
This condo was in a prime location with beautiful scenery, beaches and
the condo itself was perfect. Larry was very easy to work with in
booking and the condo was everything we expected.

Comments: Nice Unit
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
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
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.

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
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
