Island Surf Kihei
Located right across Kalama Beach Park in the heart of South Kihei, Island Surf Kihei condo resort puts you close to where all the beginner surfing action happens, which is Cove Beach Park! From there, the trio of Kamaole Beaches stretches a bit farther down the coast before the upscale resort village of Wailea. Kahului Airport is less than half an hour's drive from the property.
Offering 1 and 2 bedroom Maui condo rentals, Island Surf sets your body clock to island time as you step into the welcoming living space of the condo and take in the vast spread of the Pacific Ocean right from your private lanai, and even from the comfort of your living room. The building directly faces the ocean from across the road, allowing you to soak up stunning crimson sunsets while breathing in the fresh ocean breeze. Kalama Park is visible from the property, including the islands of Kaho'olawe, Molokini, and Lanai. You also get glimpses of the West Maui mountains from the other half of the building.
Offering free parking, on the ground level of Island Surf building you’ll find several restaurants and stores, a spa, salon, snorkel and diving equipment, bicycle rentals, and surfboards right in the building. You’ll come across a pool, sundeck with great views, and BBQ grills on the 2nd floor.
Let the sound of the waves breaking on shore lull you into sleep as you sink into a plush sofa. Or put your feet up and get lost in a well-loved book or catch up on a favorite program on TV. Open the sliding glass doors to feel the salty ocean breeze, or close it off and let the air-conditioning cool you off. Keep family and friends updated back home of your adventures with wireless internet.
Island Surf vacation rentals are centrally located, with restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance from the property. But if you prefer to cook meals from scratch, you will find the full kitchen a delight. Enjoy the panoramic ocean views right from the dining area, or as you get your ingredients laid out on the granite countertops. You probably have plenty of outdoor activities already lined up with a matching change of clothes but with a washer/dryer in-unit, you can opt to pack light.
The airy, open layout design of the condo rentals allows natural light to bathe the living room, kitchen, and dining area. Painted in light, pastel, and beige palette, the units feel a lot more spacious than they already are. Tropical trinkets, marine-themed ornaments, and island life motifs provide accents and conversation starters to the condos' relaxing atmosphere.
Want to see a bit of Upcountry and a view of the mighty Haleakala? Then head off to the pool area off of the second floor and you'll be amazed by the views while taking a refreshing dip. Or work on your tan at the sundeck while enjoying BBQ. With a cold drink in hand, you'll appreciate the mountain and ocean views even more.
Island Surf Maui Condo Rentals
The Island Surf building overlooks Kalama Park, which is known for its phenomenal sunsets. So choose a vacation rental that lets you soak up all the spectacle from the comfort of your own private lanai. If you wish to join the locals for company, Kalama Park has picnic areas, tennis courts, bicycle and walking paths, and other amenities that the little ones in your party will surely love.
If you wish to learn surfing, just rent equipment and walk across the street to chase waves. Cove Beach Park is Maui's hub for surfing, canoeing, and paddleboarding. The waves along this stretch in Kihei are friendlier, making Cove Park an ideal training ground for beginner surfers. There is also the added attraction of abundant marine life. Sea turtles and dolphins may also be sighted offshore or while you're in the water.
Walk a bit down the coast to Kamaole I and you're in the prime spot for whale watching. In the winter season, when Maui's waters remain warm and welcoming, whales make the journey from the frigid north to breed and nurse their calves. Telltale flukes and spout herald their arrival and their antics so keep an eye out.
Outside of winter, "Kam One" is renowned for its crescent white sand beach ideal for swimming. Alternatively, rent snorkel gear and chase colorful tropical fish swimming off the rocky points at the end of Kamaole I and II. When stiff winds descend upon the beach later in the day, rent a sawed-off surfboard known as a boogie board and ride the rougher waters off of Kamaole III. Otherwise, enjoy a more laid back afternoon with the locals enjoying their picnics.
Bordering Kihei and Wailea, Keawakapu Beach is a lovely place to enjoy a stroll away from the commercial presence of development on the beach. Come early, and you just might have this wonderful strip of sand all to yourself.
On reaching Wailea, you'll experience a more upscale and exclusive atmosphere. The white sand beaches here though are wide open to the public, so bring a beach towel and stake a claim to that wonderful spot by the expensive hotels.
For a more vigorous workout, explore the rest of Wailea’s coast on foot. The coastal area has a footpath open to everyone, so you can admire the sumptuous residential areas as you scope out a spot on the beach.
So when you want to be in the heart of Kihei and in the thick of surfing action, Island Surf is the Maui vacation condo you would want for a home away from home. Let our experts know what you are looking for, and we will find you the best vacation rentals available in Maui to making your Hawaiian holiday even more unforgettable.
