Our stay in Maui Ocean Breezes was wonderful! It was quiet and the only noise we could hear were the singing birds in the morning. It's in a great location away from the main tourist areas and the views are extraordinary - sea view on one side and views of the volcano on the other!
The pool is a refreshing treat first thing in the morning and after a day out exploring and we enjoyed using the barbecue every evening.
We live in the UK so were unable to send the deposit by cheque but were able to do a bank transfer directly to Anjali's Hawaiian bank account. She was always quick to respond to our emails and to confirm that she had received the money. This was very reassuring!
Using Maui Ocean Breezes as our base, we were able to drive to Hana (with many scenic stops and swimming holes on the way, and ate Aunty Sandy's Banana Bread in Keanae- delicious!), we had a tasty lunch in Paia (Cafe Mambo), drove around the West Coast (interesting single lane road for part of it!), went to the beaches (Ulua was great for snorkelling) and also had a couple of early mornings to drive to the Harbours for boat trips to Molokini and Lanai which meant we saw some wonderful sunrises. We also drove to the top of Haleakala Crater and stayed for the sunset which was extraordinary!
One recommendation would be to think ahead in terms of grocery shopping so you don't have to drive out of your way to get dinner! We had trouble finding the shops in Haiku and parking in Paia is not always easy so we sometimes drove 30 minutes (each way) to the Safeway in Kahului.
Thank you Anjali for providing such a wonderful place to stay!
