Away from the hustle-bustle
If you want to be away from crowds and traffic - this is a great place to stay on Maui. It's strategically located in the middle of the island - so a great jumping off point for sightseeing in any direction. Pros: Quiet beach aside from mainly locals - we often had the beach to ourselves in the late evening! LOTS of turtles swimming just off shore. Bring a stocked cooler and sit back on the beach and watch em. We enjoyed the pool - nice for cooling off w/o having to be too far away from the beach. Facilities are well-kept (i.e. laundry, landscaping, BBQ area, etc.). Miles of shoreline to explore - you can walk all the way to Sugar Beach! Cons: Not for those that prefer to be within walking distance of a lot of shopping and dining options. Noisy AC unit from the unit next door - kind of annoying when trying to relax on the lanai in the evening. Can't see sunset on the water due to the mountain to the west of the unit. Not the best beach for snorkeling (water tends to be a bit too cloudy). No oven in the unit - not a big deal for us, but something you should be aware of. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of places like Kaanapali, Lahaina, or Kihei and enjoy uncrowded beaches with plenty of turtles to watch within walking distance of your back patio - this is a great choice!!! We would definitely come back.
