We are a family of 4 with twin 13 yr olds who love being in and near the water. It is our first time in Maui. We like beaches, bodysurfing, snorkeling, swimming and hiking in that order. We plan to rent a car, but we enjoy being able to walk to supper so we can enjoy a drink with dinner, but do not care for nightlife. My one teenager likes to shop a wee bit too. We would like recommendations on where to stay on Maui. Our budget is $250-300/night and we would like a 2+ bdrm unit that has ocean view from the lanai would be awesome. We prefer quieter areas with less highrises. We will stay two weeks, beginning in mid-Aug.
PS During last Xmas we went to Playa Del Carmen and stayed at a VRBO condo across from a construction site. Although we were warned by the manager and received a discount, we were surprised how much the noise and activity detracted from our enjoyment of the condo.
