Located a stone's throw from one of the most popular golden sand beaches in South Maui, Kihei Surfside is truly an oceanfront condo resort with only the property's well-kept grassy lawn separating these South Kihei vacation rentals from the water's edge. If you are hoping to enjoy uninterrupted sunsets and drift asleep to the relaxing sound of the ocean, we invite you to browse the Maui lodging of Kihei Surfside!
At Kihei Surfside rentals, your ideal Maui vacation starts with unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean, the West Maui Mountains, and the neighboring Hawaiian Islands right from your private lanai. The coastline of South Maui beaches is also visible from several well-placed balconies. True to its name, Kihei Surfside Resort puts you close to the water so that you can hear the waves gently crashing along the shoreline. With 1 to 2-bedroom beachfront condos for rent accommodating up to 6 guests, Kihei Surfside vacation rentals make a comfortable base for your dream Hawaiian vacation getaway. Let the lush tropical landscaping of the resort and the cool Hawaiian breeze greet you as you set your clock to island time.
At the end of the day, enjoy a well-earned beverage from your balcony as you watch the sun dip below the horizon and perhaps catch a glimpse of the blink-and-you'll-miss-it "green flash". Some lanais practically look straight down into the water, so keep an eye out for turtles. In winter, scope out the ocean waters for the tell-tale flukes of humpback whales flocking to Maui's warm, shallow waters.
Designed to let in as much natural light as possible, the Maui vacation condos at Kihei Surfside invite the outdoors in. Guests can expect to enjoy generous island and mountain views while you're kicking back on the plush couch, preparing food in the kitchen, or sitting down for a meal in the dining area or private lanai. Open the glass doors and let the Hawaiian trade winds, together with installed ceiling fans, cool your living space and make catching up on your favorite programs on the flat-screen TV, or reading a favorite book, cozy and relaxing. If you need to stay connected while on holiday, the telephone service and the wireless internet connect you to friends and family back home eager to hear of your latest adventures.
Some condominiums for rent come with upgraded kitchen countertops, inspiring cooking confidence if you prefer to eat in. While there's a restaurant nearby, the fully stocked kitchen allows you to brew your own coffee, blend your own smoothie, or cook up a meal from scratch. The poolside BBQ grills are also a fantastic place to mingle with fellow guests during dinnertime.
Like most Maui vacation rentals, the condos at Kihei Surfside have open floor plans, so the living room naturally spills over to the kitchen and dining areas, making it easy for everyone to take in the expansive views outside. The open layout, along with glass doors, lends a spacious feel to the already roomy interior. Painted in warm hues and pastel colors and adorned in tropical style, the accommodations are also furnished with wicker and wooden furniture, evoking a welcoming and lived-in ambiance.
Before heading out for your day's adventures, warm up at the putting green, complete a lap in the swimming pool, or enjoy a round of shuffleboard. Coin-operated laundry facilities in the property allow you to pack light. And if it's too much to climb a staircase after the day's activities, the resort elevator makes it convenient for you to go up to your room for a change of clothes and back down for a wonderful night out.
Experience Maui’s Top Attractions from this Kihei Oceanfront Vacation Rental
If fine dining is on your to-do list, Wailea's restaurant scene, ranging from fresh seafood selection to carnivore delights to quick bites, won’t disappoint. Asian fusion cuisine, Italian staples, and Hawaiian classics can also be found nearby.
The golden sands of Keawakapu Beach beckon swimmers and snorkelers alike. There are sandy bottoms for safe entry into and exit out of the water when swimming and rocky areas suitable for snorkeling. Come early in the morning when conditions are ideal. Without an offshore coral reef, the waves at Keawakapu Beach could easily turn into large swells that are better suited for advanced surfing. Beginner surfers wanting to take to the water on a longboard might want to set their sights to Cove Park instead, which is about two miles up the coast.
Divers, however, needn't look elsewhere for a place to explore. Right off Keawakapu's coast, an artificial reef consisting mostly of old cars was sunk starting in the 1970s to dissipate strong waves that used to erode the coastline and destroy oceanfront property. Over time, the artificial reef, which includes a shipwreck, has attracted schools of fish, turtles, and the occasional white tip shark. Further down the coast is the popular Makena Landing dive spot where chances of an encounter with marine life are also high. For beginner and intermediate divers, the beautiful Wailea Beach offers an accessible entry point to a morning dive when abundant tropical fish greet eager divers.
So when you’re looking for a place in South Kihei to call home on a holiday or an extended stay, consider Kihei Surfside your base for exploring this stunning side of Maui.
