We are going to Maui for a week on our honeymoon. We are going to rent a condo through VRBO. Any suggestions on what area to stay in? We want a beachfront condo, be able to walk to restaurants, great weather, relaxing and romantic. THANKS

If you vote “other”, I would love an explanation 🙂

raspberrymojito: We had our small DW on Maui, used VRBO to rent a condo in Wailea Beach Villas. It was incredible! I highly recommend that complex- best location, private entrance to Shops at Wailea (so convenient), awesome concierge, gorgeous views! Wailea is on the south side, so less wind and hardly ever rains (there is actually more rain on the west and north sides of the island). WBV was a high-end complex where we felt totally pampered. Gorgeous condos.

Lahaina and Kaanapali are right next to each other. That is where a lot of the restaurants are and there is a large “town square” type area as well. There are a lot more hotels to choose from in this area, but there also is less privacy and a lot of vacationing families.
Wailea is quieter and a little more secluded feeling, but they do have their own development of shops/restaurants.
If you rent a car (which I would really really recommend), it doesn’t matter too much where you stay. We drove all around the island and were barely at the hotel when we went. Too much stuff to do!

We are staying in Ka’anapali but that is because we are using my in laws time share but if I was paying for a place to stay, I would stay in Lahaina. You can walk to a lot of good places to eat, drink, shop and I am always all about being able to walk everywhere and not having to stress over driving, parking …so on and so forth.
