Family playing at the beach


  • Exactly what we hoped it would be!

    Becky P., Montana — Stayed 4 nights in G8 in March, 2018

    The unit was beautifully updated and clean, with everything we needed. Luke was more then helpful giving rec. in food and activities in the area. The beach and pool were perfect for all of us too. After staying up in Kanapali for a few days first, we were looking for something more relaxed, quiet and with more of a local feel. Happy to say that’s what we got.

  • Wonderful place! Can’t wait to come back

    Karen H., Portland, OR — Stayed 5 nights in G8 in January, 2018

    We have stayed at Maalaea Surf Resort several times. It’s a magical place. G-8 condo is beautiful. Very nicely appointed. Luke has been wonderful to work with.

  • Absolutely loved our stay

    Alison S., Calgary, Canada — Stayed 7 nights in C7 in December, 2017

    We stayed in C7 at Maalaea Surf for a week and absolutely loved our stay. Prior to our stay both Luke and the Maalaea Surf representative who called to confirm details and arrival times were helpful with any questions we had. We arrived at night and had no problems picking up the information and keys for our unit. The condo was spotless when we arrived. The view from the balcony is amazing and the location within the complex is second to none – steps from both the pool and the ocean. We spent a lot of time enjoying the beach, perfect for walking and playing in the sand. The waves were also a great size for the kids to play in. The pool was cold, but not a deterrent for our kids. Beds were decent, bathrooms were very nice, the pack ‘n play for the baby was clean and like new, and the kitchen was fully stocked. My husband can’t stop talking about how amazingly clean the barbecues were! Location of Maalaea Surf is great as it is close to the airport, highway, Kihei shops, the Ocean Center, and the Plantation. We will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone coming to Maui.

  • Incredible view!

    Tracey B., Spokane, WA — Stayed 7 nights in C7 in December, 2017

    Our family loved everything about this condo! This condo has a fantastic view of the ocean and was very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your meals (we stopped at Costco near the airport to stock up on groceries). The beds were very comfortable. The property grounds were very well kept and management staff was very friendly. We spent a lot of time on the beach and at the pool. At times we had the whole beach to ourselves. We will definitely be back! Thanks again!

  • Exceptional condo, wonderful amenities and great location!

    Jack S., Calgary, AB — Stayed 5 nights in C7 in December, 2017

    This condo was absolutely beautiful and so welcoming. The owners have paid great attention to detail in how they have provided not only a beautifully furnished and decorated unit, but how they have thought of everything one could need for the kitchen, living space and beach amenities. The unit was spotless as were the grounds. We loved the views of the pool, grounds and beach and were very impressed with the upkeep of this entire condo complex. Management on site was excellent with any questions we had. The beach and pools are steps from the condo and we thoroughly enjoyed this location on Maui. We have stayed in several different condos in the Kihei area and this stay was exceptional! Highly recommend!!

  • Best rental on Maui

    Jesse K., Calgary, AB — Stayed 10 nights in G8 in November, 2017

    We stayed 10 days in this magnificent condo. It’s the nicest place that we’ve stayed at in Hawaii and we visit every year. The views are breathtaking, the beach is steps away and great for the kids. The low density aspect of the complex is quite unique for Maui, keeping the beach from being crowded. The kitchen was large and stocked with everything we needed. We’ll definitely be back.

  • Beautiful, relaxing, ideal place to getaway!

    Laura W., Maui, HI — Stayed 2 nights in G8 in September, 2017

    This location was excellent! We live on Maui and wanted to getaway for a quick staycation. The property, and the condo are beautiful! It’s everything you could want from a vacation property and more. Uncrowded, beautiful, all the amenities you could hope for, and the perfect price. Much better than any experience staying in a hotel! Thank you!! We will definitely book again!

  • Beautiful Oceanfront Condo

    Trey J., Dallas, TX — Stayed 8 nights in G8 in September, 2017

    We stayed 8 nights here. Luke was very easy to work with and responsive. It is a beautiful condo and property. The Condo is well stocked with the all the essentials. Very roomy and very quiet. The Lanai is large and private and has the perfect ocean view. The beds are comfortable, the maid service was nice to have and a nicely stocked kitchen. The pool is immaculate to take a dip in after a day at the beach. The beach in front of the condo is beautiful and great for long walks. I have been to Maui many times and I have to say this is one of my favorite places to stay. Mahalo!

  • Very nicely updated with great ocean view

    Dvee B., Lincoln, NE — Stayed 3 nights in C7 & G8 in September, 2017

    This is a very quiet neighborhood, which we loved after being in over populated Honolulu. The amenities were great, bed was comfortable and the updates are very nice! The water in the pools was very comfortable and the beach toys were a nice addition. The pictures and description tell it all and the owner was wonderful in sharing his favorite hot spots.

  • Perfect!

    Jessie D., Seattle, WA — Stayed 7 nights in C7 in September, 2017

    This was the perfect place for our family of 5. The pool and the beach were just steps away, and we usually had it to ourselves! The condo was quiet, clean and well maintained. Our 2 boys shared the room downstairs and our baby slept up in the loft with us (in a pack and play that was provided!). We won’t stay anywhere else in the future.

  • A Hidden Gem on Maui!

    Cailyn A., Fort Collins, CO — Stayed 7 nights in G8 in August, 2017

    This rental was the perfect location to experience Maui. Just steps away from the sandy beaches and short drives or walks to tourist attractions, off the beaten path adventures and local favorite spots. The condo was modern, beautiful, comfortable and had all the amenities and conveniences you need and even the ones you didn’t even know you did! The resort was a tropical paradise, peaceful, relaxing and an unexpected hidden gem on the island. The owners and management company were very nice, accommodating and easy to work with. Would highly recommend to families, couples or anyone looking for a tropical vacation home away from home. Would stay here again!

  • Very nice condo and well managed property

    Mark P., Portland, OR — Stayed 6 nights in C7 in August, 2017

    Beautifully appointed beach front condo. Short walk to ABC store, shave ice and bakery. Nice location on North end of Kihei for exploring the island.

  • Our anniversary stay

    Ron S., Cedar Falls, IA — Stayed 10 nights in C7 in September, 2017

    My wife and I wanted a nice place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We spent 11 days on Maui and loved it! We wanted a place away from the hustle and bustle of a high-rise resort. We were happy to find this property was everything we expected, exactly as described and exactly as the photos depicted. The condo was very nice, well-maintained, well furnished, and we had everything we needed. My wife’s favorite part; the condo is literally a few steps from a very nice beach, handy for our daily early morning walk, or just sitting with a book watching the evening sunset.

  • Nothing says Aloha better than this property and these owners

    Joel S., Richmond, VA — Stayed 5 nights in G8 in July, 2017

    If you’re doing what I did by taking notes on dozens of South Maui rental property listings, reading all the reviews, and comparing price, location, and amenities, then you can save your time and stop right here. The owners are marvelous — accommodating, very very responsive, and more than hospitable. They take the Aloha spirit to a new level. The place is enough off the tall hedge lined road to be peacefully quiet. The furnishings and kitchen appliances are modern, new, comfortable and wonderfully put together with an eye for design. Besides major furnishings, the owners seemed to think of even the small stuff — two sizes of french press, coffee grinder and a regular drip coffee maker, beach equipment (chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, sand play set, 2 snorkel sets, ice chest and frozen cold packs), bug spray (didn’t need it in July), bandaids, board games, tennis equipment, and grilling utensils in addition to the expected flatware, stemware, cookware and cooking utensils. I know that I’m forgetting something but they didn’t. They even had the Disney Maui DVD. The location is perfect. It’s a short drive to grocery, fantastic snorkeling (highly recommend Polo Beach), Aquarium, airport and the start of the Hana Highway. The grounds are wonderfully maintained. Both pools are cleaned daily. Outdoor grills are right out the front door and very clean. The staff is courteous. Sorry, I could go on and on, but I don’t give 5 star ratings lightly. Our time in Maui was so fantastic that when we left, my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter started crying when she found out that she was going home instead of back to the condo. I must say, I was with her.

  • Very clean and comfortable, well stocked and perfect for families

    Vincentia A., Edmonton, AB — Stayed 7 nights in C7 in July, 2017

    This property was ideal for our family. The kitchen was well stocked for us to be able to cook all types of meals. Housekeeping was very friendly and all the the amenities were superb. We will definitely be back to enjoy Maui in this location.

  • Phenomenal Condo, a true gem in Kihei

    Tibor M., Garden City, NY — Stayed 3 nights in G8 in July, 2017

    G8 at the Maalea Surf Resort is a great find. We were two couples visiting, and everything about this condo was just perfect. There is the DIRECT BEACHFRONT location….the ideal separation of the two bedrooms and two bathrooms . The kitchen is superb , the amenities provided by the resort are impressive, (poolside/oceanside lounge chairs, tennis courts, barbecue sets) …. the decoration, the beautiful bathrooms, the comfortable beds, the extra bedcovers, pillows, the SIZE of the condo !!!!!!! I could go on an on….. If you want to be spoiled, if you want to impress your wife (husband / partner /friends) this is the place to stay in Kihei! The excellent air conditioning gave us the break from midday heat – just what we needed – in the middle of July! Just outside the center of Kihei at Sugar Beach, there is a great Bakery and also a Food/Gift/General Store just across the Resort and within minutes you are at restaurants, stores, golf courses, on the road to Lahaina, Kahului, Makena, Kula…… The condo is superbly equipped. Huge dining room table with 6 chairs, Table & Chairs and Lounges on the balcony, 6 Beach Chairs, Boogie Boards, Coolers, etc, etc, anything you could ask for….even Tennis Rackets! Our only regret is that we could not stay longer , but WE WILL BE BACK!!!!! PS….. The Terrace (overlooking the pool and the ocean) is just beautiful. Everything about the condo speaks class and quality! Simply put, the place is a gem!!! Very highly recommended….you will be impressed!!!

  • The Perfect Vacation

    Daniel M., Mt. Vernon, WA — Stayed 7 nights in C7 in October, 2016

    Our experience was perfect. We stayed up north at Kaanapali Royal for the first four days we were in Maui, and it paled in comparison to our time at Ma’alaea Surf. It is truly amazing. Next time we’re just going to book our entire stay here. Our other place had bugs popping up all over, our place at MS didn’t have any. We were overlooking the pool, and a stone’s throw from the ocean. The location is perfect, whether you want to pop up to Kahului, go down to Kihei or Wailea, or up to Lahaina. The staff keeps the place (including the pool) absolutely clean.

  • Quiet and Relaxing

    Richard & Cristina L., San Antonio, TX — Stayed 10 nights in C7 in September, 2016

    Tropical Paradise Villa Unit was a wonderful choice. This is our first stay in Maui and we got lucky and found this quiet, relaxing and very clean resort on the beach. Also, you will find the location is central to all the other locations that you will want to explore. As you venture out to other locations, you will find that the resort is in a great location just off a main highway and its about 20 minutes to the airport. We plan to return to Maui and to stay at this resort. We just hope this unit is available during our next stay. Good luck and enjoy the island, we already miss it.

  • Relaxing on Sugar Beach

    Astrid E., San Diego, CA — Stayed 9 nights in C7 in August, 2016

    This was the most satisfying stay we have had on Maui! To wake up each morning to the view, the peace with only the pounding of the waves to sooth the brain! The condo exceeded our expectations and would recommend it as a 5-star stay. We had our best friends staying next door and was truly a wonderful time for all! Sugar Beach was just great, long walks each morning with my wife was the highlight of our stay! We are planning for our next stay at Ma’alaea Surf next year!!??

  • Relaxing Vacation

    Guest, Franklin, TN — Stayed 11 nights in C7 in April, 2016

    Very relaxing, exciting and enjoyable. We were completely satisfied with the condo, the grounds, and the staff.

  • Happy Repeat Customer

    John & Susan P., Maple Ridge, BC — Stayed 14 nights in C7 in January, 2016

    Loved it…..again! We’ve stayed in this unit a number of times now and keep coming back. Would love to come again sometime.

  • Best Condo in Maui

    Karen S., Washington, IL — Stayed 5 nights in C7 in December, 2015

    I have been to Maui many times, and this was the best condo I have ever stayed in. The condo had everything you could possibly need. It was very clean and well maintained. The entire property is very well maintained. It was quiet and not crowded. The beach was 50 steps from our door. The customer service was five star. We enjoyed dinner at Mama’s Fish House as well as some local establishments. We had a GREAT time and will be back!

  • Great Stay

    Michael K., Tulsa, OK — Stayed 5 nights in C7 in August, 2015

    The condo was great and the complex was fantastic. I appreciated the care and effort that was spent on the grounds. Pool was cleaned every day and it was spotless. Wish every place was like that. Condo was well stocked and clean. Great stay and would recommend to anyone.
