I am coming to Maui in September for a week with my hubby. We have decided to stay in Kihei for several reasons...price, snorkelling, and central location to both East and West of island. What is important to us...an ocean view, preferably beachfront (I don't want a road between me and the beach), close to good snorkelling, and budget is $250-300 per night. We will hire a car so getting around is no issue. I don't want to be around tons of people, hence why we want to avoid the resort areas...this is a relaxing getaway for us.
So my question is... which is better for this North or South Kihei and why? And what would be some accommodation that would fit this? I have been poring over trip advisor, vrbo, expedia etc and I am getting really confused, so any help would be good. Neither of us have been to Maui before. Thanks
