      Hotel, activities, surfing recommendations?

      Maui Jan 2, 2017 at 4:13 PM

      Hi everyone,

      It's been a while since I've written. Well it's time for another trip. I'm hoping to go to Maui to experience Hawaii for the first time with my husband

      I don't know much about Hawaii. Just know they have great coffee and a great place to learn to surf.

      Does anyone know of a great hotel near the waters with a nice beach that's also near activities like surfing, snorkelling, hiking, kayaking? We like the adventure type of vacations.

      Hopefully to get some ideas and not break the bank.


    • Where to stay in Kihei?

      by SueS117 Online Now Jan 18, 2015 at 2:19 PM

      we are travelling to Maul from April 17 to 25th. We thought Kihei would be a good location as far as being fairly accessible to other points on Maui. Can anyone give us recommendations on either a hotel or Condo location. It is overwhelming looking at all the choices on VRBO. There are many that look good but you never know. We are in our fifties and it is just the 2 of us. Any advice?

      Black Rocks

      by Kneeldah Online Now Jun 27, 2009 at 6:54 PM

      My son and I spent Christmas in Kihei two years ago. When we got back to Texas, I noticed my son had brought back some black rocks. Since then, we have had some financial problems. Then I remembered about the legend of the black rocks bringing you bad luck. I have been wanting to return them, but I don't know where. Can anyone give me an address so that I can return them? I would really appreciate it.

      Thanks y'all.

    • Any tips?

      by maui_bound Online Now Aug 28, 2007 at 9:23 PM

      We reviewed many hotels and it seemed Maui Coast hotel had some great reviews- and not as many negative reviews as many other hotels (on a budget).

      This is our first vacation and we are very excited- but not very well versed.

      Any suggestions on activities?
      We had thought we were looking is East Maui but after booking realized we booked in South Maui. But all the activities we found are based out of Lahaina snorkeling, sunset sails, Old Lahaina Luau).
      Looking for fun things to do (while still on a budget) in Kihei.

      Also wondering about how far (and how long) it is to get to Lahaina from Kihei.

      The Road to Hana is on our list- I heard it was a must. Now that we will be in South Maui I am not sure if we should head North and then East on the Hana Hwy or if we should follow the southern coast (as we probably won't take the Hana hwy all the way around).

      Any suggestions, tips, ideas would be great! THANKS!!!

    • New Year's Eve in Kihei

      by Cheryi79 Online Now Apr 16, 2007 at 6:39 PM

      I was wondering if you have any suggestions on what to do or where to go on New Year's Eve? My husband and I are going to Hawaii for the first time this year from Dec. 29 2006 thru Jan. 5, 2008 and since we will be spending New Year's Eve there, I was hoping for some feed back on what to do. New Year's Eve is also my birthday and I will be celebrating my 46th Birthday! I am hoping I will have plenty of time to get reservations, I just need to know where to start?
      Thanks for your help!

    • happy hour

      by skarics Online Now Dec 26, 2006 at 5:57 PM

      My parents are going to Kihei in January and Im trying to find them a restaurant/bar that has happy hour, preferrably with a nice water view in the Kihei area. They are not looking for somewhere to eat dinner...only for cocktails and maybe appetizers....years ago they had La Familia which was GREAT! And then we used to go to Sugar Beach hotel for .99 margeritas. I've been told that hotel no longer exists. Any info would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!

      Moving to Maui in July--a few questions for those of you living there!

      by redheadj Online Now May 18, 2006 at 1:27 PM


      My boyfriend and I are moving July 26th to Maui, either to Kihei or Lahaina depending on what we decide upon getting there, but we are hoping to find a place to move into for 8/1/06. We will need a place to stay for 6 nights (the 26th through the 31st) and I'm not quite sure where to find a cheap place. Can you recommend any cheap hostels? I have searched as well as the maui news website and will keep my eye on them, but if any of you know anyone who will have a spare room or wants a little extra cash for 6 nights, please let me know!

      The other issue is we will probably need to rent a car to get to Kihei or Lahaina, in which case it will have to be returned to the airport--how does that work? Would you just take a cab from the airport upon returning the rental car? Thanks so much--again in this case, if you would like some extra cash and have a spare car lying around we could borrow for a day or two, hit me up--we are responsible drivers!

      Any other advice is also welcome.

      Thanks so much!

    • Is kihei for me?

      by Happy06 Online Now May 17, 2006 at 7:24 AM

      Wonder if someone might be kind enough to help me out - I live in London & I'm planning to go to Maui next month with my mum who's in her late 50's & i'm in my mid twenties.
      All we really want are beautiful beaches and good restaurants kinda near by not looking for the party capital or anything.
      Unfortunatly (for my mum!) we're doing this on a budget - so i've been thinking about Aston Maui Lu Resort on South Kihei Road. I've looked up reviews on the web and they're massively varied. I now it's cheap as chips so i'm not expecting luxury but i'd be really upset if i took my mum somewhere they had cockroaches!
      Any thoughts & advice welcomed.
      thanks so much
