Maui Accomodations

Jump to last reply

Hi, thanks to the fodorites, we have decided to visit Maui.My husband, 3 year old son & myself are headed to Maui mid November for 2 weeks. I am having trouble with hotel/condo search, which is overwhelming. For atleast a week we will be staying at the Fairmont in Wailea, it being a suite we get some separation from our son when he sleeps.The other week is a problem. We are looking for ocean front, beach at the property, like luxury, restaurants, a view, clean room, & are considering the Kannapali area for that week. We have never rented a condo before & I found these on vrbo - referred by a fodorite.Here is my concern

1) I want to try to spend under $ 200 or in that ball park for the week in Kannapali. Open to go slightly higher. We need the separation from my son. And hopefully see some whales if possible from our lanai.( I know its a bit early for them )These are my options :

a) Maui Kai
b) Ashton Kannapali SHores
c) Kannapali Villas
d) Ashton Mahana at Kannapali
e) Ashton Maui Kannapali Villas
f) Kapalua Villas

Of the above which one would you suggest ?Any particular condo number you prefer? We are looking for 1BR

2) If I am able to do Fairmont for the entire 2 weeks & skip Kaanapali, do you suggest it? We do like nice restaurants closely.

3) If Maui is breaking the budget would you suggest splitting b/w Honolulu & Maui? We have been to Honolulu 8 years ago for 5 days, wasnt much, stayed at Hilton Hawaiian Village. We are hilton members but they dont offer reward nights for our time there.I am less keen to club it with Honolulu, my husband is keen to do 2 islands.With a 3 year old I want to relax more than fly. We will be flying out of nyc.

Thanks so much, all your hotel/condo suggestions will be helpful
