Where are you located?
My Maui Palace I is on the West Maui coast in the village of Honokowai, nestled between world class resorts of Ka’anapali and Kapalua. Here you may play golf on courses hosting PGA tournaments and championships as well as “shop till you drop” at Whaler’s Village and Shops in Kapalua or Historic Lahaina. Ka’anapali is host to resort hotels such as Sheraton, Westin, Marriot and others; grounds of which are accessible to the general public from the famous Ka’anapali beach walk.
Will we see whales?
YES – ABSOLUTELY!!! All condos overlook the islands of Molokai and Lanai. It is between these islands that 95% of all whales come to birth their calves. From the end of November through the end of May you can sit on your “lanai”, patio, balcony and whale watch. We provide binoculars but they are rarely needed – the whales are so close!
Are there restaurants close by?
MANY!!! In fact the finest on the island are only a short distance from your “Palace!” The famous steak house “Reilly’s”, “Roy’s”, and the “Fish and Game Company”, and “Outback”. Don’t forget our wonderful local restaurants, too. There are restaurants to fit every budget.
How close are you to Lahaina?
Ten minutes by car. Keep in mind that nothing on the island is far! Trips to Hana or the up-country to Kula, Ulupalakua Ranch or Haleakala are a “full day” event – not necessarily due to distances, but due to narrow, very winding roads with low speed limits, and elevations. Haleakala towers at 10,023 feet. Certainly, you will also make many stops to admire the beautiful scenery and points of interest along the way.
Do I need to bring anything from home?
NO!!! Everything from beach towels to blow dryers, coffee grinder to spaghetti strainer is furnished. Sorry, no butler service! However, you will want to bring high SPF sun block, and aloe-vera just in case you have too much fun in the sun!
Is the grocery store close by?
YES!!! Just a few blocks down the road! In fact, you’ll drive right past it on the way to your “Palace”. Also, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, there is an open air Farmers Market open from 7-11 am with fresh produce, flowers, chips and salsa, bagels and cream cheese, and the best pineapple bread on the island! A “must do” during your stay.
