Where to stay in/on Maui in October

We have never been to Maui and I have no idea where to stay. We are not big resort/shop all day/go out every night people. We are walk around town and people watch/hike/fish/helicopter ride people.

Small and cozy fits way better than large and busy. We really are not picky about hotels as long as they are clean and the service good. Besides, we like to give the little guy some business. I would like to have ocean views wherever we stay and I would like the beach to be very close.

Any help on Cities and hotels would be great.

Why? Why are you posting on the Makena Forum? Post on the generic Maui forum. And start reading down through the posts on the Maui forum for lots of dialogue on places to stay.

Do you have a good travel guide for Maui? A good map? There are no "cities" as you describe them. Most accommodations with easy beach access are in South or West Maui. A few others Upcountry, and sprinkled about.

Provide us with your nightly accommodations budget. You may prefer a B & B. But, really -- take a look at the lay of the land ... decide where and how you want to spend your time. Read, read, read.

Also - if you haven't reserved your car, you should do so right away.

Take a look at www.chasenrainbows.com for a wide variety of condos on the west side. They list everything from fancy to tiny. Many of the condos between Kahana and Kaanapali are older and directly oceanfront, very laid back area.

If you are looking for a laid back resort, kinda away from it all check out the Makena Beach and Golf Resort. It's in Makena of course and sits on one of Maui's best beaches. Beautiful ocean views and great snorkeling. Only a 10 min. drive down the road will bring you to Wailea and then a few more min. you would be in Kihei. Ocean conditions will be best in south Maui this time of year.
