A guest from Carbondale, PA
Rental unit was nice and the beach is located right across the street, even better! Owner had all items needed for our stay, beach chairs, towels, fins,coolers, even sunscreen! Only issue, trying to get the tv to work....e-mailed management and receive a prompt reply with directions. Condo was quiet. Enjoyed breakfast on our lanai. Will rent again. Mahalo and aloha!

Comfortable, clean, central
Jul, 2022
A guest from Calgary, AB
Great, central location at North end of Kihei with easy driving access to beaches, shopping, and Kihei Cafe. Unit was clean, had a well equipped kitchen with mini stove/dishwasher. The refrigerator also came with 6 or 7 ice cube trays which was nice. Bed was semi comfortable, but the one of the windows didn’t close, plus the a/c wasn’t working very well - which probably affected the night time comfort. There isn’t much within walking distance but the location gave us easy access to everywhere. It also came with snorkel sets - nice touch. Unlike other unit we stayed in, this unit didn’t come with a boogie board. Small issues - we would stay again as the unit was quiet with plenty of parking.

Nearby strip mall has a fair every 4 weeks called Fourth Friday. It’s entertainment, vendors & food all day and into the evening. A short drive South on the S. Kihei Dr has lots of beaches, shopping, and restaurants... of which Kihei Cafe is highly recommended. They are open for breakfast & lunch till 2pm only, but the line up forms early at 6:30-7am.

I would avoid Paia Seafood restaurant on S. Kihei Dr - expensive and mediocre food you can get anywhere. Look for small, independent eatery or food trucks for best local fares.

About 20 min drive South along the coast (follow the road o the right)Wailea-Mākena has some really pristine beaches! But parking is scarce, so get there early. Avoid Mākena State park waters as it is infested with sea urchins (ouch!). Farther South lava fields are something to see. On your way Shops at Wailea has Hawaiian programs during the day - highly recommended.

Overall our stay was great. Management company personnel were great! If you have any issues or need help with booking, call them. They are awesome!

Great stay in Kihei!

Great location in Kihei

James T. from FAIRFIELD, IA
Studio apartment in Kihei. Beach access across the street at the Kalepolepo Park and many other beaches that are a short stay nearby. There is a window AC unit that cools the apartment pretty well. Kitchen is well stocked. The pool and hot tub on the premises are very nice; plus there is an area to BBQ with a gas grill if you are so inclined. Plenty of parking and a pass is provided.
Response from Rentals Maui, Inc. on 2022-05-09 19:16:14
Mahalo for the review! Glad you enjoyed the pool and hot tub, as well as the location of this unit. It's a pretty great home base for a trip to Maui.

We were very happy with our accommodations and found a few extras available to us that you don’t always have. The staff were super when we had questions during our stay and even after when we realized we forgot something, kudos to Rentals Maui! I gave 4 stars because the sofa sleeper want too comfy.

Clean . Had all the basic necessities. Property was clean and had a hot tub and bar b q area . Couple of minor things not working like patio screen sticks and would come off track and microwave stopped working last night we were there but to us , that’s no big deal.

Maui condo getaway
Mar, 2020
A guest from Lodi, CA
This was a cute little condo. Very clean. Perfect for a couples getaway. Right across the street from a public beach. Condo was stocked with chairs, ice chest, beach towels, etc. It came in handy for our day trips. It is on the main highway so there is the road noise that others have mentioned but the convenient location more than made up for it in my opinion.
Great Location and unit.
Jan, 2020
Scott W. from New Hope, MN
We came in for a week and wanted to stay in a central location so this unit on S. Kihei Road looked perfect. It was clean and furnished very well. The owners had beach chairs, coolers and other handy extras. The price was good for a two bedroom. We didn't use the pool but it was popular. There were nice grills to use as well. Overall, we couldn't have been happier.
Nice property in Maui

Great for Singles or Couples
Dec, 2019
Andrew James F. from Emeryville, CA
I was traveling as a couple. The last time I rented a condo it overlooked the pool and during Thanksgiving the pool was filled with dozens and dozens of rowdy children. I chose Kihei Bay Surf to avoid that scenario and i was right to do so. The pool and hot tub are great and never too crowded. The lanai overlooks S Kihei road which limits its use for me, but the property was convenient comfortable and clean. This is great for couples or singes on the go who don't want to be around other people's children.

Greatest Studio In Kihei
Jun, 2019
Stephanie L W. from San Diego, CA
The studio was everything I needed for my ten-day stay in Maui. The accommodations were great: comfortable bed, great shower in the bathroom, fantastic kitchen and perfect location. The pool was wonderful. Across the street was a great beach and the whale sanctuary. I was extremely comfortable.
May, 2019
Loved it. Would totally recommend and come again!
Great place in Kihei for 2 people
May, 2019
A guest from Saint Louis, MO
We loved staying here. Being right off of Kihei Rd, it was super quick to get to anything in Kihei (and it's a good area too) or to get out of Kihei to head somewhere else. The place was very clean and comfortable for the two of us. Property management was very courteous and helpful. Good value for the price. If we head back to Maui soon we will definitely stay here.
Great place
May, 2019
A guest from Gatineau, QC
Had a fun time in Kihei. This condo was perfect for my needs. Nothing fancy, but very clean and with everything I could possibly need.

Only thing: the walls in between condos are quite thin. Easy to hear what’s going on in adjacent condos. Listening to crying babies or couples being intimate can get annoying.

Great place. Would definitely recommend to others. Thank you!

A guest from Seaside, CA
Directions sent previously were great help in location and check in procedure. Great location, quiet area, other people there very nice to chat with, easy to find everything. Unit itself was clean, comfortable for our stay. Biggest issue was that all soap for laundry and dishwasher in the bin marked laundry. We did all the dishes by hand - totally not a big deal.
Lovely stay

Duy N. from Etobicoke, ON
Girlfiend and I were had a good stay here for 4 days. Check in was easy via lock box and the place was pretty clean. Internet wifi connection was good (logged into our Netflix account to stream shows), bathroom was really clean and the unit provided beach gear such as towels, snorkelling gear, etc. Lots of parking available, other people in the area were quiet and the location in Kihei is great as it's central to all the other areas of Maui.
Great place!

A guest from Columbus, OH
This was our 1st stay at Rentals Maui and overall stay was great! We found the studio clean upon arrival and love the outside seating. Access to the key and reminders of rules and upkeep appreciated. The studio was well equipped with what was needed during our stay as well as beach equipment. Took a moment to figure out the TV access; however, all was good. It was quiet and restful. Lovely setting. Location was very good we were right across from beach access and had a peek-a-boo view of the beach from the balcony. Had no issues to ask staff and the facility person on duty was helpful and love the continual upkeep of facility & pool. He kept all things in order. Tennis court was in very good shape. Oh yes visitors should be sure to watch for keeping things stored; it’s a warm climate and we did see some miniature ants on counter. We would definitely recommend select this rental again. 🙂
Just got Maui'd!

A guest from San Jose, CA
Kihei Bay Surf #253 is immaculately clean and is centrally located in S. Kihei making it a great place to stay at in Maui since it is close to almost all areas of the island. Check-in and check-out was easy and we love how it had a ton of amenities to offer from extra towels to snorkeling and beach gear. We would stay here again on our next trip to the island!
Fabulous location
Aug, 2018
Rosey H. from Torrance, CA
We had a blast staying here. It was close to all the best beaches and activities. We went snorkeling, swimming, surfing, paddle boarding, and frolicked around Big Beach. The place was quiet and the view was of the street.

Worked out everthing great.
Was very professional.
I would put the couch on a other Spot, the air condition blows directly on it, so it takes very long to cool the room.

This property is VERY well located, very convinient for any outing on the island. Everything happened as described, no surprises. The pool area was kept very clean, the BBQs were cleaned daily and I used it. Parking was always available. People in other units were very quiet. If I go back to Maui, this will be the place.

The location was perfect. Breakfast on the lanai with the sun rising each morning was perfect. We has everything we could have needed in the condo. I was a short drive to all the stores in Kihei. We only ran into a few no see bugs but that is to be expected in a tropical location.
Great price -- Great Location

Tayler D. from Parker, Pennsylvania (PA)
This studio apt was just what my husband and I needed for our two week honeymoon -- One row back from the beach, it was centrally located from the airport & big beaches. About a mile away from most of the restaurants and shops, it was within walking distance but just far enough away for peace. Would deff recommend!
Awesome Location
May, 2014
A guest from Calgary, AB
Overall this place is awesome given its reasonable price point. Being located at Kihei, which brought easy access to major points of Maui (Lahaina, Wailea, Road to Hana, Crater, etc). The place is clean which is our number #1 need. They got enough cookware for us to cook breakfast and snacks. We spent most of our time outside so personally my wife and I got what we needed. The only thing that may concerns some people is the unit locates right next to the main road (south kihei road) which could be noisy at the evenings until 10pm. I'm a deep sleeper so that didn't bother me. Not sure Free WIFI has become a standard to most people, but having it available definitely helped us to plan our day to day activities much easier.
A Great Studio Apartment
Mar, 2014
Betsy S. from Hoquiam, WA
We rented a studio apartment in Kihei for four days. It was across the street from the ocean access and only a mile from the shopping district. It was clean and had WiFi and a swimming pool/hot tub access. The folks at Rentals Maui were helpful and patient. I'd recommend Rentals Maui to anyone who wanted to save money on accommodations and have a stress-free vacation.
Perfect place to stay in Maui!

After an unexpected 14 hr layover,we arrived in Maui at 9:AM. The property management company was delightful to work with. We got into our room within minutes. The studio was very pleasant and met all our needs. We'll visit the Kihei Bay Surf again next year! Thanks for everything. J and K from Vancouver WA.
