we're currently planning our Trip to Hawaii in the early December and when checking on accomodations, I already noticed we have to hurry. We plan on spending one week on Maui (and another on one of the other islands, probably Oahu). We don't need a lot of luxury, but it is a holiday and a long way for us, so we don't want to spend it in a cheap small B&B either. A Pool would be nice, proximity to the/a beach, too. I already noticed that practically no hotel/resort offers free breakfast, i.e. a small kitchen or at least cheap restaurants in the area are necessary. We've been thinking about renting a condo, too. We prefer small, quiet places over busy, huge hotels or snobbish resorts.
Oh, and we don't want to spend a fortune on just a bed and prefer spending the bugs on activities. We mainly want to go hiking, see nature, do some Whale watching, snorkeling, some beach time. We couldn't care less about fancy night life.
At the moment the best options I could find are the Aston Maui Hill in Kihei and the Maui Kaanapali Villas. The latter is supposed to have a nice cafe. I also found a privately rent condo in the same place, I guess (I'm a little overwhelmed with all the options, places, names...). However, I read that Kihei is the nicer, more beautiful place to stay?
We are three adults, so if we take a condo, it should have two separate bedrooms.
Any advice is really appreciated!
