I am spending several days on Maui and will want to see Haleakala, drive the road to Hana, take a ride up the west coast,etc., but I do not want to move around from place to place. I want to stay in one place and then take day trips. I don't mind long drives.
Is there an area you would recommend to stay that would be centrally located for all these days trips? The south shore, up country beyond the airport but before the beginning of the road to Hana.
Names of particular towns would be very helpful. We are not big resort people, we tend to prefer B&B's, inns, cottages, etc.
