Equal to HBR Kauai

Hi,

We have previously stayed at Hanalei Bay resort in Kauai, and are looking for a resort with some of the same features in Maui. What we did like about HBR was the landscaped pool area, nice views, amazing nature and very scenic beach just a short walk from the resort. We rented a unit through home away, and got a nice, refurbished unit, and are looking for resorts with an opportunity to rent from owner.

If anyone has suggestions for us, we would be very thankful!

Have you looked at homeaway again at all? And do let us know what your budget is per night, in US$$$. And what time of year as well. That makes a big difference as to the cost per night.

Most of the resorts on Maui are right on the beach. But some resorts are quite big, so you may still have a short walk to the beach!

Thanks! We´ll be there at the end of August 2019. Budget is 200 USD a night. Couple in our mid thirties. I have read up on Maui, but there is a lot of choices, so if anyone who had actually been to HBR and knew of a similar place in Maui that would make the search a lot easier! :D

Here's what I posted on your Kaua'i thread:

Your budget is kind of low, but might be doable at the end of August.

For the south side, check Elua and Ekahi, maybe the Palms and Maui Kamaole too.

For the West side, check Maui Eldorado and Maui Kaanapali Villas. If you bumped your budget some you could check Kapalua.

I think since you’re at the end of Augustt more than a year out you could find a bargain at Kalpalua Villas. There are a few nice Ridge and Golf Villas that go for $199/night and even under. Of course there will be fees and taxes added.

See my replies 9 & 10 in your other thread. https:/…92062273

There is nothing like HBR on Maui. HBR is so special because of the Bali Hai views. Anything close to it would be an oceanfront condo in Maui facing Lanai. You can see great sunsets every evening.

Maui ain't Kauai. You aren't going to get that stunning beauty on Maui, it is a starker environment in the tourist areas for the most part, with the Road to Hana and 'Iao Valley being exceptions.

Your budget is a tough one too. Nick had some good ideas for you.
