Most overasked question: Condo/rental recommendations for Maui

Jump to last reply

I know EVERYONE must ask this question, but we need ideas on where to say for our December trip. Looking to spend 10 days in Maui (since the last 3 trips to Hawaii have all been to Kauai.)

Admittedly, I haven't been to Maui since the late 90s and I'm sure that it's gotten even more commercial then it was then--but in comparison to Oahu (too touristy) and the Big Island (too sparse) it seemed like the best bet.

The problem is sorting through the literally thousands of options for places to stay. It's just my partner and I--and we'd really love to avoid staying in an 80s nightmare if you catch my drift. Looking in the range of $300 or less/night. Area is pretty much open, although I think I'd prefer not to be in the madness of Kaanapali/Lahaina and more towards Kihei if we do the northwest side--or conversely would be open to staying in the Waimea area since I've never really stayed there before. In a nutshell, it's more important to have the nicest accommodations as close to the water as possible but also try and avoid as much cheesiness (although I know sometimes in Hawaii you just have to go with that flow) as possible.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations!
