It's official DH & I will be on Maui from 12/28 - 1/4! I have booked my airfare (thank you all for the encouragement) & have narrowed my condos to the following:
Aston Mahana Oceanfront One Bedroom thru Costco with rental car (No idea which unit...)
Lahaina Shores Studio Oceanfront no car (add rental car & price is equal to Costco) thru Chasin Rainbows
Sugar Beach Resort Oceanfront One Bedroom no car & only $300 less than Costco. This is thru VRBO & Owner lives on island & owns 2 units here. GORGEOUS place...but concerned about the winds (TA Reviews even make mention of them)
Kapalua Oceanfront One Bedroom Gold Villa...started there but expanded my horizons based on the advice here, especially due to the time of year we will be there. A little over $1K higher than anything else I have mentioned but again thru Costco includes car rental.
Will you please tell me your preference based on what I told you about us & what you know about the areas/properties?
We are mid 40's & live outside of the city. We are used to quiet at night, but would like an opportunity to walk to happy hour or dinner & enjoy a couple drinks without the need for either of us needing to drive.
I appreciate all of your insight-I can't wait to be able to gain knowledge & give back after we return!
