    Leinaala is a small condo complex in Kihei…only 24 units. All are individually owed and kept clean. All units face the ocean. The pool is ocean front with plenty of seating and the pool is salt water!
    You will not be disappointed.

    Lovely written article with valuable choices for future Maui vacationers. The resorts definitely have their perks with many second to none amenities. Others may want to consider renting vacation homes or condos. It can be much more private and peaceful. It also gives you the feel of home away from home and that you’re actually living in paradise.

    One of our favorite places to stay on Maui is at Blue Sky Villa in Lahaina. It is a luxury vacation rental. It is on the higher end of Maui accommodations but the stay is pure luxury living oceanside in Maui is what we are looking for. We usually rent it with 2 other couples to the share costs. it has 5 bedrooms so plenty of room. Check them out if you’re looking for high-end and a luxury vacation home.
