Beautiful views and serene property on the far south end of Maui. We woke up each morning to the cacophony of a rain forest and pounding waves. We witnessed a wedding or two a day from our beachfront lanai. Two pools and tennis courts kept the teenagers busy when the wind came up on the beach. Rained out for one day, mornings serene and calm for snorkeling but winds came up each day between 1p and 2p and lasted until 5p. Beach is fairly empty of beach goers during this time.
Boys saw turtles and a reef shark snorkeling. Many snorkeling tours park right out front so must be a favorite snorkel spot. Big Beach and Little Beach less than a mile away, drum circle Sunday late afternoon is a trip back to the 60's. Lava Fields further south worth the quick trip.
My preference is West Maui for weather and access, not the gold coast of South Maui but everyone much happier with less wind, more options. It may be June and then again it may not.
