Any boat ramp noise at Kihei Surfside?

Hi, looking for a quiet place to stay in Kihei. I received recommendations for Kihei Surfside. Noticed on the overhead map at maui revealed website that it has a boat ramp nearby. Just wondering if anyone has heard boats coming and going. I really want to be able to sleep in!

You should be safe from the ramp noise at Kihei Surfside. That boat ramp is tiny. I hiked past this ramp a number of times while on Maui. I only saw occassional personal use sized boats going in and out. And if I remember correctly, Kihei Surfside is quite a distance from this ramp. You will not lose sleep over this boat ramp.

We stayed right across the street from the ramp at the Maui Kamaole - we had an ocean view condo. Could never hear any goings on at the ramp and it really isn't that busy. Just a couple of small commercial boat operators use the ramp.

We stayed in the front of the "A" buildings here: http://wizardpub.com/maui/mrmauikamaole.html

The Kihei Surfside is much further away with a huge grassy area and tree grove between you and the ramp.

The only thing you will hear is the surf hitting the lava rocks the noise from the boats will be hard to hear at all! Some people complain about noisy children or loud neighbors but at the Surfside everything is muted by that amazing ocean sound! We were very close to the waters edge so it was louder than some of the units that are further away... loved that wonderful lull :-)
