We stayed in the studio unit at this resort and we LOVED it. The unit has a fabulous ocean view and condo itself was super comfortable, elegant and stylish. Having the kitchen in the unit made everything so easy. There’s a Safeway in Lahaina and a Costco near the airport, so you can easily pick stuff up as you make your way to the resort.
What make the kitchen so great was that sometimes we would pack ourselves sandwiches for hikes that are out of the way and thus no delis nearby. We loved having our breakfast and morning coffee out on the lanai watching the sun come up. We rented it thru VRBO and it was a great experience. Our unit had everything we would possible need, from all the necessary kitchen utensils, basic sandwich condiments, detergent for the in unit washer & dryer, to beach chairs, beach picnic basket, and beach toys.
The resort itself is wonderful with a great staff. There are a number of really nice stainless steel barbecues located on the resort and while we didn’t use them, we saw a number of families who did. Looked like they were having a great time. The resort gym is pretty great too. Various exercise classes are offered by resort for a small fee.
For those who enjoy walking, you can easily walk to the Whaler’s Village. It’s about a 45 minute walk. It’s worth it just to enjoy the views along the way. Keep in mind though, if you plan to go during sunset, remember to bring a flash light because there are certain sections along the path to the Whaler’s Village that aren’t illuminated at night and it’s pitch dark. Luckily we had our cell phones and used that.
We went during the off season, so the resort was fairly quiet, however I can see how this place can be very popular with families. If children running around bother you, then come here only during Maui’s off season.
