Obviously she had had a great time and there were many others out there in the water to interact with. From the beach I could see a couple of Sea Turtles and directed her to them. She has taken some good photos which I have attached.
After that we went for a walk for about 1.5 miles and bought some medication to assist me sleep better at night. After a nice lunch at a lunch bar we returned to the Resort. ...
... alright but I felt really bad for what happened. So our big beach plans didn't go so well. We packed up and headed to the store for bandages and anti-bacteria medicine for Brent's knee. After we doctored up the knee, we went back down the beach near our condo, stayed away from sunbathers, put the umbrella deeper in ...
... arrived back at the car still in awe of the view - it really was soooo huge, for those who have read Clan of Cave Bear series at any stage it reminded me of that they described in those books.
I would definitely recommend this but if you are only packing summer clothes just chuck in some long johns and merino top and you will be able to enjoy it. I am sure the sunrise would be stunning but we were happy not to have got up at 4am.
Heading down the mountain we ...

If you want a relaxing, vegetative beach vacation, then West Maui is the place to go. Rather than focus this blog on beach activities, I'm going to talk about....

... got set in a white gold ring which now graces my lovely wife’s finger - something to remember Hawaii by - picture to follow when I get around to it.
Finished the day with the rush to see the famous Hawaiian sunset around 7pm which only myself and Jack managed to get to. I asked him to turn around for a photo which he didn't want to do as he wanted to watch the sunset. He finally gave in but the expression on his face gives away a slight feeling of frustration.

Historical Traveler Reviews Kihei Surfside
For 90$/night it is a very good value. Good things are: the beach is fantastic and pretty good snorkling. Good size of the room. Not to far to drive to different attractions and shops. Beautiful surrondings.
Not so good: No air condtion, you could hear the next door neighbours
and the place is boring.
Would I stay here again - Maybe!
I have been to Hawaii several times. For this trip I looked for a place on the south side of Kihei into Wailea that was still affordable. I wanted a condo with a kitchen, a beach to swim and snorkle and a little out of the way of the hustle and bustle of S. Kihei road. Kihei Surfside has all this. It is very comfortable. I was worried about it lacking air conditioning but with the afternoon tradewinds and setting the windows just right, it was perfect. We had room 613 which was top floor towards one end. This made it a little quieter (away from the elevator). It was clean. There are two top restaurants in walking distance - and a fantastic beach. There's also a convenience store in the resort next door. The best part is the view from every window is of the ocean and the west Maui mountains. There is a pool with a large green lawn dotted with palm trees to relax away the day. It also is easily accessable to shopping and any other activities on Maui. Completely recommend it! It's not a 5 star resort but a very comfortable, inexpensive Maui escape.
the view was great however their is no privacy once you are in your room, you can hear every word spoken in your bedroom (the window is open to the hallway) so everyone hears you, even taking a shower with the door closed! their is no air conditioning so you have to keep these windows open and the door slightly open to get any breeze in the room. about 5 pm it is just too hot in the condo to even be in there the sun just beats down into the condo and closing the blinds just makes it like a hot oven. Another problem is something called "thatching" is done on the grass and there is no prior annoucement of this when booking our vacation. (the lawn is cut for two days straight from 8am to 5 pm for two weekends in a row, their are 20 plus people cutting and raking the lawn, it is loud and nothing is usable during this time because of all the grass and workers. Then when they are all done, all we seen was brown grass and smelled cow maneuer for the rest of our vacation. the office staff stated that they do this once a year different times but didn't have a schedule. Be aware of these things so you are fully informed before making your vacation plans at the surfside
We had a fabulous time at the Kihei Surfide...the views were spectacular! We had condo #202 which was closest to the water on the second floor. We could practically dive into the ocean from our lanai! The view was really nice since there are palm trees, a lovely lawn, and rocks right in front of the condo.
I booked a trip to Maui on expedia and selected the Kihei Surfside for our accommodations after reading the reviews on your website. We were there the first week on June 2004 and it was a prefect location for a relaxing and no stress vacation. We couldn't believe our eyes when we opened the door to room 612. The condo was beautiful and the view from the sixth floor was spectacular. My 15 year old was even impressed. The entire condo was in great condition and everything was very clean. From the condo's balcony and windows you only see the ocean, coastline and palm trees. No looking into windows of the next building. The only building next to the Surfside is across the parking lot and on the side of the building with the entrances. That building has a small store with anything you would need and an excellent restaurant with a patio overlooking the beach. I was concerned about no air conditioning but we had no need for it with the ceiling fans and wonderful cool ocean breezes. It was so relaxing to just sit on the balcony and watch and listen to the ocean. Every evening there was a magnificent sunset, which you can watch from your balcony or from the lounge chairs on the beautiful green lawn. This would be a fantastic place to stay during the whale-watching season (Nov. to April).
Eventhough you can't see the actual beach, it is basically a couple steps away. The best part, and what I like to do is lay down on a lawn chair at night, drink a fruity drink, and look up at the stars, while listening to the waves crash on the rocks. Once or twice a week, gardeners are out there mowing the lawn to make it as beautiful as possible. It is so lush and green! The inside of the condo is great and homey. I always feel at home, but even better!! It is cozzy and very affordable and I recommend it to everyone and anyone.
This is a great affordable property. Every unit has a lanai that is oceanfront. We booked 7 units for a week in June and all of them were very nice. Most are 1 bd/1bath, some are 1 bd/1.5 bath, and 2bd/2bath.
Kihei has grown to be a busy, bustling town on Maui, full of condo rentals. Most are not oceanside, but Kihei Surfside is, and what a view! They have wonderful public space. Nice lawn, great pool, and good outdoor grill. A very nice beach is a 2 minute walk. Units can vary, but most are acceptable. A lot of space at a very reasonable rate. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath ones are great for families and 2 couples, and are on the ends of the building. No air conditioning, but if the trade winds are blowing, you don't need it. Overall, a great value for an oceanside condo in Maui.
Beyond Paradise in Kihei
We have stayed at the Four Seasons and The Ritz, but there is nothing like the cool breezes and tropical sunsets you get at the Kihei Surfside. Yes, you will have to cook for yourself and there is no rooms service, but that is more than made up for with the best location, beach and setting in the world. If you want a clean, friendly, fun, place to stay with the best that Maui has to offer...this is it.
