After spending much time online looking for Maui rentals, we luckily chose Lahaina Palms for our family Thanksgiving week vacation. All 6 of us loved it there and hated to leave!
The house looks just like the picture including the 180 degree sunset view. November is early for whale watching, but we did see whales one day without having to take a tour boat--just relaxing by the pool! The house is not large, but with beautiful Maui weather it was ample for the 6 of us having 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. One of the bedrooms is really a converted garage, but it's the largest--more like a 1-bedroom apartment with a King size bed and a sitting area with TV (but the bathroom is not connected).
The house is air conditioned, but with the island breezes there was no need for it. When we asked the landlord about how to shut off the AC, he showed us that we could completely slide back the window walls to open up the entire kitchen/dining corner of the house. Wow--that's what... Plus
