Aloha - my wife and I just spent two weeks (almost..) at Maui Ocean Breezes and we had a wonderful time. It has all the amenities one could want - a gorgeous view, delicious breezes, lush vegetation, a beautiful garden, and peace and quiet!. The pool was wonderful, perfect temperature and very nice when the trade winds slowed for a couple days. A few rain showers at night brought the plumerias to life again - I think they drop leaves when it is dry... - and the trades with their return kept the temperatures perfectly moderated. We arrived after a visit with our son in Kailua (O'ahu) and a stay at Waikiki - and the peace and quiet of Maui Ocean Breezes was marvelous. We prefer the quiet side of Maui - Lahaina can look like the Jersey Shore at times - and the restaurants around Paia and Haiku are wonderful - Colleen's at the Cannery, the Thai Food Vendors at the Cannery and by the Ballfield in Hana are EPIC - and Anthony's for coffee, tea and breakfast was wonderful. The unit we stayed in was spotless - patrolled by a house gecko so no bugs to speak of - and the view was so relaxing we sat on the lanai for hours just watching the ocean (a few whales breaching too...) and pitying the poor souls on the cruise ships we saw passing by out at sea. 15 miles from Kahului is wonderful - part way to Hana, close to Haiku and the Cannery shops and restaurants, easy ride to Haleakela, Hookipa Beach, Paia and if you must, Lahaina and the west side.
We circumnavigated the west side of the island again this year - past Hana to Lindbergh's grave and on to Kaleppa, Kaupo and the Tedeschi Winery - passing a wild west cattle roundup (using a helicopter to herd the steers) in the bargain, a wonderful trip.
If you want a good base to explore from, want peace, quiet, a view, gentle winds keeping you cool at night and a place for swim, and to hang out where you are staying - this is most definitely the place to book. The caretaker brought us fresh fruit and took marvelous care of us - and the owner was wonderful to work with. Mahalo nui loa.
