My husband and I are going to the Big Island for a friend's wedding in late Jan/early Feb and decided to tack another week in Maui. We are not familiar with the different areas in Maui and would like some suggestions on where to stay.
We've been recommended to stay around Kihei because of the value and also less resort focus... We are staying at a hotel when we are on the Big Island (Hapuna Beach hotel). So what we are looking for is probably a place where 1) we can cook (a kitchenette or kitchen); 2) we are walking distance to a nice beach; and 3) a room with a lanai with a bit of an ocean view.
Open to recommendations around Kihei or another area all together. Thanks!Edited: 26 September 2011, 01:18
