Where to Stay in Maui

03/24/2021 | by Kim Grennan | Maui Things To Do Vacation Planning

 

Although Maui is known as the Valley Isle, it’s the incredible beaches that make it famous. In fact, Maui has 120 miles of accessible beach that it offers up to its visitors, more than any other island in the State of Hawai’i. If you’re dreaming of swinging on a hammock with a fruity libation in hand and the sounds of the waves gently crashing in the background, then Maui is the destination for you. 

Whether you want to be steps from the beach or at the center of the action in Lahaina, here three options that won’t leave you wondering where to stay in Maui.

Aina Nalu Condo in the Heart of Lahaina

Located just one block away from Lahaina’s main hub, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy some peace and quiet, lies Aina Nalu B105. This charming condo with garden views and a dining area for two is ideal for couples celebrating a special occasion without breaking the bank.

Incredible Accommodations

Besides its excellent location and peaceful surroundings– think tropical trees within reach of your window–Aina Nalu B105 offers some amazing amenities, including:

  • Air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout
  • A kitchenette with all the essentials, including a small fridge and an induction hot plate burner
  • Access to two community pools, a hot tub, and barbeque grills

Incredible Location

Aina Nalu B105 is located near Front Street, where you can spend your time browsing one-of-a-kind shops, dining at local restaurants, and inevitably purchasing art from a local artist in one of the many art galleries. 

The property is also not far from some of Maui’s most beautiful beaches, like Ka’anapali Beach, where you can go snorkeling around Black Rock. 

If you prefer your adventure to be of the land variety, there are some great hiking trails nearby such as the Kapalua Coastal Trail, anchored by two of the best beaches on Maui- Kapalua Beach and Fleming Beach.

What Former Vacationers are Saying

Aina Nalu B105 has delighted former vacationers with its great location and pristine pool area. 

  • “…I would 100% recommend this room and location to all my family and friends. It is a beautiful resort, with 2 awesome pools and many public BBQs. It’s a short walk to Front Street, which has great restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Overall an awesome experience and stay.” -Mathew
  • “…The large pool at this location is amazing. 1st come 1st serve free cabanas and a huge open area arena with showers, ice machine, lounge, and kitchen. Activities rep is onsite at the pool area to assist with booking tours and pointing you to some great spots to eat…” -Dave

Airy, Relaxing Living at Maui Lani Terraces

In a quiet residential neighborhood right across the street from the ocean sits Maui Lani Terraces A205, a cozy one-bedroom, one-bath condo. The size and location of this unit make it perfect for couples or a small family looking for their very own paradise while staying in paradise.

Spacious and Updated

Much of Maui Lani Terraces A205 has been recently updated with luxurious finishes such as: 

  • A newly remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and immaculate white cabinets
  • A brand new air conditioning unit in the living area
  • Gorgeous new flooring throughout

Two Minutes from Honokowai Beach Park

A short stroll takes you to Honokowai Beach Park. Stop by one of the nearby local restaurants, like Honokowai Okazuya, to grab a takeaway lunch and enjoy your meal with a view at one of the picnic tables. Afterward, go snorkeling right off the beach where you can see some of the incredible local marine life. In the evening, stroll hand-in-hand with your significant other with the white, powdery sand between your toes and the vibrant sunset as your backdrop.

What Former Vacationers are Saying

The significance of Maui Lani Terraces location can not be overstated, even by former vacationers.

  • “…Loved the Honokowai area! Great little park on the beach just down the road. Enjoyed walking to the Farmer’s Market and coffee place across from the park as well as walking down to the beach walk along Kaanapali. Close to everything!” -Sue
  • “…The pool is there, but the beach is across the street. It’s really clean and great to watch the sunrise or sunset from. I even got to swim with some turtles there. You are not far from anywhere on the island either.” -Kerwin

A Tropical Paradise at Paki Maui

Paki Maui 313 is a beautiful one-bedroom, one-bath condo located in the heart of Lahaina. Sip your morning coffee on your private lanai overlooking the tropical gardens featuring indigenous flowers, or take an afternoon stroll around the peaceful koi pond. The atmosphere promotes a sense of calm and relaxation.

Oceanfront Pool

You don’t have to choose between the swimming pool and the ocean, because the most exciting feature of this unit is the large pool and hot tub overlooking Honokowai Beach. But that’s definitely not the only feature worth talking about, here are some of the property’s other notable amenities:

  • Direct beach access
  • Private lanai with garden views
  • Updated and well-equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances

Wander the Honokowai Farmers Market

The Honokowai Farmers Market is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Bring your reusable bags and after a short walk, you’ll be rewarded with stalls full of locally grown fruits and vegetables, baked goods, and local foods. Once you’ve loaded up your bags, take your haul back to your rental and prepare a meal using the freshest ingredients. It doesn’t get any better than that!

What Former Vacationers are Saying

The only thing that rivals the relaxing atmosphere inside of Paki Maui 313 is its proximity to the ocean. 

  • “Great condo with an inside garden view. The condo complex is right on the Ocean where you can regularly see turtles and Humpback whales. Paki Maui has amazing sunsets just over Lanai to the west and Molokai is just to the northwest. Right next door to the property is a State Park – Honokowai Beach Park…” – Dennis
  • “The location was great! We were close to a Farmer’s Market with delicious fruit, acai bowls, sandwiches, and snacks.” -Rachel

5-star Luxury at Kaanapali Royal #A201

Complete with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this updated condo provides a peaceful, relaxing setting for your Hawaiian getaway.

Walking Distance From Whalers Village

Hop in your rental car for a quick drive to additional restaurants and shops over on Front Street, which resides in the port town of Lahaina.
