| Guest Review for Unit 203
Comments:Amazing views! Right on the water!
Experience:Pleasantly surprised that the condo was literally right on the water. Pictures didn't do
the views justice. Upgraded kitchen, with everything we needed. Perfect honeymoon and we will definitely
return!! Have already referred friends! Great location. ONLY downside is that there is no AC. No
escape from heat or humidity. :(

Experience:Check-in was a breeze, owners emailed to be sure we arrived OK. The unit appeared to be
recently remodeled, very tastefully done. It was super clean...and I have serious OCD ;-). We found absolutely
everything we needed from beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers to a sewing kit and chop sticks for our Poke!
We ate breakfast and enjoyed sunset every day on the lanai. Listening to the waves crashing as we fell asleep
each night was lovely. We can't say enough good things about Surfside Condos! There are simply no other condos
in Kihei or Wailea that allow you to wake up this close to the ocean! Thank you for your hospitality Larry!

Comments:Wonderful stay but!
Experience:Stayed here because of the view, and was expecting everything a condo had to offer as usual.
No AC first day kind of sucked it was super humid would have liked there to be an AC. The remaining stay was
actually pretty cool and the wind passed through the condo so beautifully and in the room thereís sort of a
little vortex happening that keeps it super fresh I loved it. But the reason Iím only giving it 5 stars is
because of the laundry! We had to pay to use the washer and dryer and thatís a first, I really didnít like
that. And also the WI-FI signal is not to good in the bedroom or anywhere else except the kitchen living

Comments:Phenomenal condo with perfect views
Experience:This location is perfect- close to Wailea/Makena but quieter and more affordable than the
oversized resorts that overtake that area. Unit #203 is gorgeous and faces the ocean. It is equipped with
everything you could need and the owner is very responsive. One closet is full of beach towels, boards,
beach balls, chairs, etc. I was initially worried that the lack of A/C would be an issue in August but it
was actually perfect with these breezeway panels that open in the bedroom. The sun sets right in front of
the property and 5 Palms Restaurant (right next door) has a delicious beachside happy hour everyday. We
went here a couple of nights to eat sushi and drink cocktails while we watched the sun go down. I would
definitely stay here again!

Comments:Kihei Surfside #203 & Maui are No Ka'Oi!
Experience:We have been staying at Kihei Surfside since 1993 and have enjoyed the improvements over
the years. In 2015 there was a full makeover for the building which allowed for many owner remodels &
upgrades! We have stayed in various units over the years and #203 is definitely one of the BEST! Very
well appointed, comfortable and upgraded. The kitchen is very functional and all amenities throughout
the Condo are great.
You cannot beat the location or views and this is why we keep coming back. The daily ritual
sunset "happy hour" on the gorgeous grassy picnic/BBQ area is really fun to attend (BYOB & food). Walks
on the fabulous Keawakapu beach and beaches beyond are just steps away.
Bottom line, we love this
place and all the wonderment that are close by!

Comments:Wonderful Maui Vacation....again
Our 10-day stay at Kihei Surfside was amazing as expected. Unit #203 was fabulous for the two of us
and had amazing views of the ocean. The unit was fully equipped and all we needed was our food for
the stay. We have rented from Rosieís Rentals since 2013 and have always had first-class service
and experience. Larry is great to deal with. We would highly recommend #203 and any unit that Rosieís
Rentals provides. We are back again April 2018, this time with our daughter!

Comments:Kihei Surfside Heaven
Experience:Kihei Surfside is a unique Maui secret. What we found here adds up to magic.
First, youíre literally oceanside, not across the road. All Lani overlook the water and beautiful resort
grounds. Everyone gathers on the lawn for sunset, and the call of the conch shell.
The property is enormous, with a huge lawn and crystalline swimming pool. The sound of the surf soothes
the soul, day and night. A few hundred feet down the path, over a mile of white sandy beach becons for
sunrise walks, paddling and snorkeling. Best of all, itís hidden from the crowds. Not visible from the
main Kihei highway, the beach is much quieter than popular public beaches in town.
Our unit (203)
is freshly remodeled, beautiful and new. After 10 days, we left with no suggestions for repair or
improvements because itís perfect. So comfortable!
Kihei Surfside is paradise. This is our first
time here, weíll be back. Preferably for a longer stay. Aloha!

Comments:Kihei Surfside #203
We had a very enjoyable stay at Kihei Surfside. Everything from the grounds, accommodations and staff
were excellent. It was our first time to Maui and we will definitely be back for another visit.
Without a doubt we will be choosing to stay at Kihei Surfside on our return!

Comments:Fantastic location: exception views & beach access
Experience:Well maintained and updated condo with unbeatable views and very quick access to beach!
Beautiful grounds. Modest pool.
We loved being very south in Kihei - away from the chaos but quick
access. Extremely convenient location; but not very walkable to restaurants and stores (fine by us).
I have to admit being overwhelmed at check-in. It was 92+ that day and with the unit all closed up and
without AC it was HOT. I did panic a little (not going to lie). Opened windows, got a cross breeze and had
to leave for a while. It was warm sleeping one of the nights. A window unit would have thrilled me!!
The unit is well appointed and offers A LOT of fun things....chairs, cooler, umbrella, beach towels. There
is NOT a lot of closet or storage space. The owners have a number of locked cabinets and the half bath closet.
You don't need much in Maui - but just know going in that you might have to get creative with storing what
I'd go back - in a heartbeat!!

Comments:We Will Definitely Be Back
The condo was better than the pictures showed on the site. The view was awesome with the lawn and the
beach being just seconds from our front door. The condo was clean and ready when we got there and
everything the listing described was exactly what it was. We said when we left that when we come back
that this would be the only place we would stay. Did not disappoint...highly recommend!

Comments:Exactly as advertised
Nice clean unit, newly renovated. Be-a-utiful View! Quiet at night, great for sleeping. Turtles out
front, beach next door is perfect. We'll come back.

Comments:Great Location. Great Views. Great Condo.
The lanai provided a beautiful front-drop to start every day and end every evening. The Keawakapu Beach
is very close by and it's easy to trek chairs, umbrella, and snorkel gear to a nice sandy location.
The grounds are beautifully kept and so much grass!
We enjoyed daily walks often to Polo Beach Park with a stop at the Shops at Wailea on the way back
but we also walked to Po'olenalena Beach (and back) three times and once to Kalama Park (and back).
The unit is well equipped and very comfortable. It's close enough to Kihei but far enough away.
We'd certainly recommend this unit.

Comments:Awesome ocean front unit
We stayed 6 days and enjoyed this place very much. The unit is modern and very comfortable. The large,
perfectly groomed grass was great for lawn bowling. The heated pool was great when the weather was not.
Beach access is perfect.

Comments:Beautiful view and well appointed unit!
We stayed 7 days. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer. A rental car is a must. There was
snorkeling equipment, lawn chairs and beach towels in the unit so we didn't have to rent any. The
grounds are well kept and beautifully manicured. Not to mention, the pool temperature was perfect.
You won't be disappointed with your stay.

Comments:AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME.
If there was more than 5 stars, this place would be get it. The condo is amazing, the price is even
more spectacular. We actually left there after four days and came down to a resort for a wedding,
terrible idea. Stay in Kihei. If you can get this unit, (If I haven't already booked again) do it.
Depending on what you like, this place has it. Grass? Amazing. Beach? Amazing. Even a pool if you're
one of those people that goes to a beach to sit by the pool. (Not us) The snorkeling was even better
here than is was on the $200 trip we took on a boat. I have nothing bad to say about anything at this
place. Food is close and delicious, parks are close, and other excellent beaches if you wanna head
out for an adventure. The breeze is great at night through condo, so anyone worried about the no AC
can rest assured, it is nice. I will be back, again, and again. Best owner I have ever worked with
as well. Very patient and worked with us when mail service was slow. I wish I could give a better
review. Top notch. Don't pass up the opportunity to stay here.

Comments:Don't want to go home!
Surfside condos has a million dollar view, and great accommodations. Third year here and don't really
care to go anywhere else. It is simply awesome with great people. Most generally a quiet place, but the
end of may can bring families with young kids......quiet time kicks in at 9:00 and they are very good
at enforcing it!

Our first trip to Maui and we can't imagine staying anywhere else! The view was superb and the
accommodations were clean. We were right around the corner from the beach and excellent snorkeling
where we befriended a turtle and her baby. The rooster nearby did wake us earlier than we wanted,
but everyone seems to be up early in Hawaii!

Comments:Whale Watching from the Balcony
This was our first vacation rental expeience and it was fabulous. Every step of the process was very easy
and when we unlocked the door of our unit to step inside we were gob smacked at the view! Highlights were
snorkling with the turtles and listening to the whales under water. But the best was sitting on our deck
in the morning or evening and watching the whales performances.. .awesome!

Renting at Kihei Surfside was a great experience. The location is
perfect with well kept grounds ,close access to beaches and restaurants
and an easy drive from the airport. We enjoyed cooking out in the
evening and meeting many of the other guests. We hope to come back very

Comments: Loved our first trip to Maui
We arrived to the condo still being cleaned but the staff graciously
let us sit on the lanai. The view was just as it was online, fabulous!
We figured out routine to keep the condo kind of cool to deal with no
air conditioning. Keep the curtains closed during the day while you're
not there. The staff around the complex were super friendly as were the
other occupants. It was nice to have the beach toys supplied (chairs,
cooler, masks, umbrella). Everything went smooth from online
reservation to easy checkout. We would stay here again!

Kihei Surfside is our home away from home. It isn't fancy, but that
is what we love. When we arrive here, we are immediately able to relax
with the sound of the waves and the amazing views from every lanai.

The condo is located in next door to a wonderful beach with lots
of sand and few rocks which is really nice. It is also close to show
and restaurants. It comes furnished with everything you expect and a
few extras such as beach towels, chairs and umbrella. The only downside
is no AC. I found though that most condos in this area didn't offer AC
in the same price range so seems that is standard. Since there is no
AC, windows are open all the time. The ones on the non-ocean side in
the master bedroom allows for some noise early in the morning (traffic,
people talking and birds (very loud birds). We woke each morning around
7:30 a.m. due to the noise. But I figure we can sleep late when we get
back home right? It is Hawaii!! No need to sleep the day away.

Comments: Can't wait to return...
My wife and I stayed at Kihei Surfside (suite 203)in late April/early
May, 2013. Since we were vacationing with our 23 month old daughter, we
anticipated spending a significant amount of time in the suite;
therefore, we were interested in a suite on the beach side of South
Kihei Road with a view of the ocean. Kihei Surfside (suite 203) exceeded
our expectations. The suite looks out over the ocean, pool, and
beautiful grounds. After a morning at one of the many nearby beaches (I
would say Keawakapu beach, which is steps from the suite, is one of the
most beautiful beaches in Maui) and an afternoon at the pool, our family
often enjoyed dinner on the balcony, watched the sun set, and witnessed
the ceremonial blowing of the conch shells, which many guests
participate in every night at Kihei Surfside. In the evening the suite
is filled with the sound of the waves crashing over the rocks below the
balcony and in the morning we woke to the sound of island birds. It was
an extremely tranquil experience. During breakfast on the balcony our
daughter frequently spotted sea turtles and manta rays swimming directly
in front of the suite. She also appreciated the beach toys that she
found in the suite.
We will definitely be returning to Kihei Surfside. The Kihei/Wailea area
is beautiful. I think it would be difficult to find a condominium
closer to the ocean with a better view than Kihei Surfside (suite 203).
Absolutely wonderful experience from initial contact with Rosies Rentals
to check out.
