Island Surf Condominiums

Reviewed 27 June 2009

Had a relaxing time in Maui. The sunset from this condo is spectacular and the sunrise from the corner unit was priceless. Placed in a very central location to everything, and the park provides a very nice walk and closure to the end of the day.This trip was a new start for me and Maui has set me in the right direction and a beautiful start.

Went to Island Surf Condos in Maui over Christmas and New Years of Dec 08 and Jan 09. It was an awesome trip, loved Kihei! The condo we stayed at was fantastic. The VIEWS were incredible and the condo was perfect in every way. My husband and I stayed on the top floor, corner unit on front of building, with two lanais on each side of the building. The unit itself was awesome, we felt we could just hang out and relax there any time of day....which we did often. Did I mention the view? Wow, we sat for hours just gazing at the beautiful ocean on our lanai, watching sunsets, surfers, canoers and calm waves. We rented a car, but ended up not needing it because everything we wanted to do and see was in walking distance....the beach, shopping, restaurants, etc. The relaxing atmosphere of the condo we stayed in can't be beat, plus it was decorated so nicely with a fully stocked kitchen that we could eat in and make some of our favorite dishes. (I am not sure about back of building, but units on front are great!!!) Easy to book, excellent references. Definitely Recommended! Forget Mexico....got to Island Surf!!!

My partner and I arrived the day after Christmas and stayed until the New Year. We loved the place. Besides being quiet and comfortable, it is close to so many things. We walked to resturants and neighborhood bars and got a feeling of being a local.

I did appreciate the full kitchen and amenities. We were able to buy food and drink but needed nothing else.

One must do!!!! Get a bottle of wine and be on the verandah at sunset. You don't want to miss even one.

Aloha

I stayed at the Island Surf Condos the first week of January 2009. Having not been to Maui before, the Island Surf was a great place to stay as it is centrally located to many activities in the area, it was clean and it was definitely convenient. The unit I stayed on was on the top floor facing the ocean, so I had an amazing view and I was up high enough that I was away from the street which provided a quiet environment....which is important to me.

The ground floor of the condos had great retail including a deli, a surf school and a kayak club. It was great to wake up each day and look out at the beach right across the street and watch the surf and kayak club in the water. Truly a sight to see.

We stayed here because of the very reasonable price. The condo itself had everything we needed, including chairs to take to the beach. The location was close to the major grocery stores, as well as many restaurants. The building was kept clean by the staff. But I would not stay here again, only because it was too noisy!
The condos are located right on a busy road, with another fairly busy road going off at an angle on one of the sides. We actually got used to the road noise, the only time it really bothered us was at those times when we were trying to watch TV in the evenings.
The worst part of the noise comes later at night, when you're trying to sleep, and comes from the back of the condos, where the bedrooms are. The block is shaped in a relaxed "L" shape, with the crook of the "L" facing a lot of restaurants a couple of blocks away. This configuration acts like an "ear" that catches all the sound.
We found when others had visitors that left, they would stand in the parking lot and talk. Normally that would not be a problem, but sound was amplified because of the "L" shape. Then at 10 pm - 2 am every night, one of the nightclubs/bars/restaurants in the vicinity would start live music. The bass was just loud enough to reverberate through your head and stop you from sleeping. If you plan on partying that late every night, then this place will be ideal for you.
A word of caution. The beach across the way is great for beginning surfers, but somewhere in that bay, and it may be a block or so to the North, there is evidently treated waste water that is expelled out in the bay. Because of this there is more algae in the cove, you can see it and smell it. If you walk a little way along to Charlie Young Cove you won't have the same problem, and that's where the 3 beautiful Kamaole beaches start.
Next time I will be prepared to pay a little more for less noise.

We are repeat vacation guests at Dorli's beautiful condo on the 6th floor. Without fail, everytime we enter this condo, the view is breathtaking. From panoramic ocean views to walking distance to shopping and restaurants to the high standards of this owner in assuring the comfort of guests, who could ask for more?

Dorli presents a vacation retreat complete with high quality furnishings including a king size bed, fully equipped kitchen and wi-fi availability for those of us who take our laptops along. We have stayed in her condo for several years and have never been disappointed.

We always stay in one of her condo units since we know there will be no unpleasant surprises. I'd highly recommend any of her condos for a pleasant Hawaiian holiday.

Mahalo,
Laurel
