All our condos have magnificent and unobstructed ocean and mountain views with completely private lanais for your enjoyment. There is a street in front of the building that you have to cross in order to get to the beach.
You are in the center of vacation activities with people coming and going to the beaches or stores and you
will here cars and people off and on during the day but it all calms down nicely at night.
The condo complex is located in sunny South Kihei and is called Island Surf. The condo itself does not provide a lot of green area but is across from the largest park on the South side of the island.
All the units are overlooking a this great PARK and have beautiful views of the blue ocean and the shorelines along WAILEA and past MAKENA BEACH. You can also enjoy views up to the green foothills of Maui's 10,023 ft MOUNT HALEAKALA.
The best thing about these condos besides the views is the location. You are IN WALKING DISTANCE to everything.
The condo is 1 block from beautiful and kid-friendly CHARLEY YOUNG & KAMAOLE BEACH I. The beach is a mile long and is part 1 of 3 magnificent beaches called KAMAOLE BEACH I, II & III. (They are all connected for a great long beach walk/run)Besides delightful soft white sand, all these beaches have wonderful parks with large trees for shade and inviting grass areas. They all include showers, picnic - tables, restrooms and lifeguard stations.
While enjoying our completely private lanai (patio), you can take in magnificent sunsets or you can enjoy watching swimmers, surfers and kayakes play in the crystal clear water with an average temperature of 79°.
South Kihei, being on the beautiful south coast, HAS ONE OF THE BEST SWIMMING BEACHES AND WEATHER ON ALL OF MAUI. The average annual rainfall is less than 9 inches. If you like to avoid the rain during your vacation, this is the side to stay! Along the six-mile stretch of beach that fronts Kihei Road there are a number of attractive spots for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, and picnicking. It may take you a few days to explore them all, and we advise you stock up on sunscreen. (Which we try to provide in most of our units.
This is the sunniest area on the island, protected from clouds and rain by Haleakala. But Maui's South side, is not just all about beaches as there are many great shopping centers, casual and fine dining restaurants, grocery stores, farmers markets and live entertainment, inclduing the traditional LUAU's within a few miles of the condos.
CHARLEY YOUNG BEACH turns into KAMAOLE BEACH 1 and is 1 block form Island Surf.
This is the least crowded of the 3 Kamaole Beaches and if you have lots of things like beach chairs, ice chest and umbrellas to carry, (which we provide in the condo,) there is a convenient parking lot with plenty of parking a 1 min drive from the condo. This is the only parking lot from all the 3 Kamaole Beaches that never fills up no matter what time of the day. (Exceptions are Christmas and New Years.)

Just wanted you to know we really enjoyed our time in your unit.
We found the unit to be very comfortable, easy to keep clean, and the many
magazines about Maui most helpful.
Morning coffee on the lanai, meals on the lanai and generally sitting on the lanai during sunset into darkness.
You are fortunate to have found that condo location.
in my view, outstanding from many viewpoints especially the view of the ocean. I could see the ocean, hear the ocean, and smell the ocean. Those three ingredients are what I always look for when visiting any seashore.
We arrived in Maui after sundown and by the time I got the car rented it was dark.
You driving directions were great but I had difficulty seeing streets signs in the dark.
I was totally confused after a bit and stopped in a Foodland to buy a Maui map.
I was studying that map when an employee asked me if I needed help.
I asked her if she knew of the Island Surf condos. She said I was within two blocks of it.
How could I have been so confused but arrived so close to the unit!
We will keep you in mind the next time we decide to visit Maui.

Island Surf is a 6 story high-rise building with unique and open floor plans for all my condos.
(No shoebox style living with lights on during the day ever!) All of them have stunning ocean views throughout the whole condo. That and the proximity to everything you could ever need on your vacation right in walking distance make this building a well 'hidden' treasure as quoted by many of my guests.
There are no green grounds included with the building itself, but right across from condo
is Maui's largest park on the South side of the island, with every amenity you could ever need.
Including large trees for shade, picnic areas, showers, restrooms, and first row sunset viewing on the water
while watching turtles come up to warm up for sunrise or sunset.
