I was rewarding my grandson for completing high school at a magnet school (they recruit high achievers). It was his first time in the islands. Maui Schooner was a good place to start. Our room seemed to have been fairly recently updated. Granite counters in the kitchen, everything you need. A/C units (two zone controls) and a built in washer... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Maui Schooner; it is a beautiful relaxed setting along the shore in Kihei. It was a refreshing change from the high- rise chain resorts in Kaanapali. The 2 bedroom suite was very spacious and well equipped. Waking up to the birds singing early every morning was a treat, but our unit was at... More

The suite was very nicely decorated, recent updates, master bedroom was huge with an large ensuite. Lanai was very large. Everything was very well maintained, from the swimming pool, hot... More

We are Wyndham owners and Wyndham doesn't have a timeshare in Maui so we went with Trading Places on an exchange to Maui Schooner the third week in April. We were pleasantly surprised. The four of us stayed in B309, a 2 bedroom unit with an open loft as the master bedroom, recently remodeled. Carpets and tile floors were new... More

Spent 1 week at the Maui Schooner and it was fantastic. We had a one bedroom/one bath unit that was very clean and spacious (B103). The bed was a King and very comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. We did not have an ocean view but just a short walk beyond tennis courts was a small beach.... More

We got our unit easily through an exchange and now we know why there was availability. This complex is in need of updating. There were missing bathroom tiles exposing a large gap by the floor. The pool deck is carpeted which did not keep it cooler. The television in the living area was tiny. We were glad to be in... More

The resort is small but quaint, convenient to lots of places. We exchanged our timeshare for a 2-br unit, ground floor, and surprisingly, it wasn't noisy. The room is cozy and comfortable, sufficient for us to come back from our activities to rest and relax. The kitchen is well-stocked and we cooked dinner a few times, using the grills provided....

It is not the biggest or the fanciest place on Maui, but it is a great place to stay that provides clean facilities that are in good condition with a friendly staff that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg to stay. We have stayed there several times and thoroughly enjoy our time there. Can't wait to get back... More
