We spent our Spring Break stay at the Maui Schooner. It is mainly a time-share property, but we were able to obtain a week through a friend. Our room seemed to be newly updated. It was a two bedroom, two bathroom unit. It came complete with all the cooking and kitchen supplies needed, We also were given beach towels, beach... More

I have stayed here multiple times. It is an older complex that has been remodeled and is very nice and has well equipped kitchens and a nice pool and jacuzzi type spa. The resort is on the beach, but is separated by tennis courts a wide green belt. Very quiet, very clean and affordable. Note: this is a timeshare resort... More

We just had the privilege of spending four weeks at the Maui Schooner. We were delighted with the upgrades to the units and the grounds. New kitchens, counter tops, furnishings, BBQ's, TV's, washers, etc. The kitchen was very well stocked. Our unit was very quiet and had an AC unit in the bedroom as well as the living room. The...

This was my second trip to the Schooner. We were in a one-bedroom in the A - building. The grounds were great, the condo was clean and well appointed, and things couldn't have been better. Love the refurbished pool area too.

Close to downtown Kihei. Staff is friendly, although there is no secure place to store your luggage while waiting for your room. Parking is free, but can fill up at times. The beach outside isn't that good unless you like to kiteboard or windsurf. You have to bring out your own garbage.

Thank you to all of the Maui Schooner staff for hosting us for another wonderful visit. The location is perfect providing a small, family focused resort on the ocean. There are so many wonderful spots to visit on Maui and South Kihei is a great central location with great weather. The resort continues to upgrade both inside the units as... More

We exchanged into the Schooner 8 years ago and loved it -and were very happy when we succeeded in trading in again this year. We were not disappointed. The upgrades are wonderful - excellent quality furnishings and equipment -except the towels which is puzzling, but maybe they are next on the list. Unfortunately the pool 's new heating system wasn't... More

My husband and I stayed at this location that my aunt and uncle shared their timeshare with us as a wedding gift for our honeymoon. Reading one previews review, that actually gave this place 2 stars, seems like management did what they could to upgrade this place. It even sounds like we stayed in the same room as she [Kim...

We are Marriott timeshare owners and traded one of our properties into Interval. We didn't want to stay at the Marriotts in Kaanapali because it's too crowded and we heard that Kihei was a great location. We weren't disappointed. First of all, the resort was perfect. We are spoiled. By staying at our Marriott properties but the room here was... More
