We're traveling to Maui in January, first visit, probably last family trip in foreseeable future. Mom, dad and 4 young adults 19-22. Booked flights before we realized high price of lodging for 6 people. Have located nice looking townhouse in 120 complex near Kilei, has 3 bed, 2.5 ba, pool, $750 plus tax and cleaning fee. 15 min. walk from the beach. Don't feel that we have a lot of options now because so much is already booked. Wondering if we should keep looking for a beachfront place-know we would all like to hang around watching for whales, but at what cost. We've been advised to stay in the south Maui region because of the gentler waters in Jan. Many thanks for any advice.
