Our family typically stays in hotels about 200 nights per year between work and pleasure. When we looked to exchange our timeshare to Maui we decided early on we wanted something that was away from the touristy areas and the Maui Schooner did not disappoint. Everything we needed, like groceries or dining options we still readily available within a couple... More

The Schooner was awesome and just right for my wife and I! We came to Maui to kite the North shore. Kihei is in the perfect location to see the island without being crowded. The property is beautiful and we'll maintained. The pool is incredibly clean and so fun to hang out by as they have 3 natural gas grills... More

My sincerest apologies that we were unable meet the expectations of what you and your family are accustomed to with the Marriott and their amenities.

Just back from Maui. Stayed at the Schooner. Very nice, quiet place. Not a large property but well appointed. Employees friendly and helpful. Place was immaculate. Had to travel off property to get to swimming beach but that made each day more interesting. Definitely would go back.

We have been coming to the Schooner for over 20 years. The units, staff, grounds and closeness to the ocean and eating facilities are second to none. I am a timeshare owner who has never traded because I cannot think of a place on earth I would rather spend my time.
