Best children's beach with condos or rental homes nearby

My adult children and their children (ages5-2) and my husband and I are planning a trip to Maui in Jan/Feb time frame. What beach is the best for children? Also playground equipment nearby is a plus.

Thank you

Deb

Check out the Westin Villas (not resort) and Honua Kai on North Kaanapali Beach. The Villas have an amazing pirate pool and play structure.

Ocean conditions will vary day to day..both have sandy beaches for those wonderful sand-castles and it's a short drive to some really calm beaches.

Kam III beach has a lovely swing set and bathrooms. Several condos in that area of south Kihei to chose from. Maui Kamaole is one of the better complexes right across the road.

South Maui is one fine beach after the other from South Kihei through Wailea and Makena.

The Kamaole Beach Parks have good beaches, large grassy areas, play equipment, lifeguards, rest rooms, showers, *shade*, and picnic benches. There is plenty of parking if you want to avoid carrying all that parapernalia that seems to come with small children! There are many small carry-out places across Kihei Road if you don't want to bring your own picnic. There is a string of condos across from these beaches, and a couple that are beach-side.

This is a VERY busy time of year on Maui. Get your lodging and rental car or cars booked now. We can help more if we have a budget. Do you plan to rent two one-BR units or larger?

In winter you'd want to stay from Kahana (West Maui) on south for calmer oceans.

I like this site for South Maui condos: www.mauiownercondos.com You may be surprised to see an already limited selection for winter.

The best most consistent ocean conditions will be in south Maui during the months you will be there. The ocean can turn within minutes so what is safe one time may not be the next.

Here is a good thread about the best playgrounds on Maui.
