I'm psyched. Just booked a 10 day trip to Hawaii with the wife next Spring (April/May). That was the easy part. Now I'm starting to research accommodations and I have no idea of where to stay. I'm pretty open to type, i.e. resort, hotel or condo, but if I had a preference I would say beachfront condo. My thought was to narrow down a geographical area and then pick the accommodation. I do have quite a few hotel loyalty and credit card points I'd be willing to burn but I want to be in the best area first and worry about if I'm paying with points second.
So any thoughts? I've had friends recommend, Kihei, Wailea, Haiku, Paia, and Kaanapali. Having never been to Hawaii I feel pretty clueless and would love to hear some first hand opinions of where to stay. I'm hoping to get at least one session a day but this isn't a hardcore wind trip as I'll be with my wife and looking to experience all that Maui has to offer.
Go to craigslist maui.....I am going in October...staying at a guys place right on the Kihei beach for 130 a night in a 3 bedroom condo. Great price for 3bds. For the best deals on the island I would look on craiglsist or VRBO.COM.
Kihei gets decnet wind ....but not as good as Kite Beach....however Kite beach is crowded.
