First trip to Maui :)

My husband and I recently returned from our first trip to Maui, where we celebrated our first anniversary in November. We stayed at this beautifully renovated condo and loved everything about it. The weather was great, location perfect. The owners gave us clear instructions for check in and there was a binder full of information and suggestions waiting for us when we got there. We stayed for 8 nights and found that the condo came with everything we needed and more! There are very nice Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrella available as well as lots of beach towels, snorkel gear and boogie boards, everything we needed!! Although it is in building Q, which is one of the buildings farther back in the resort, it really made no difference, you can still walk to the beach in an easy 3-5 minutes and we had really great views of the gardens and sunrise over the mountains in the mornings. All of the buildings in the Maui Banyan are comparable, but I would definitely avoid some of the units with the parking lot views (which this one does not have :) )
There is a very comfortable king size bed with bamboo sheets and great pillows, as well as a hide-a-bed in the living room (we did not use) The bathrooms are both clean and the kitchen is very nice with beautiful granite countertops. Laundry as well!! It was a major bonus to have two bathrooms as a lot of the one bedroom units only have one. There is A/C in the unit, but we found if we left the doors to the patio open at night it did a better job of cooling it down (and much more power efficient). If you stay here, you must try the 808 bistro for both lunch and dinner, as well as the kihei cafe for breakfast. Moose MacGillicuddy's and Fred's are a 5 min walk away which was very convienient for happy hour or a casual lunch or dinner. Thank you to Clarence and Corrine for a great trip!!
