"We stayed at Arnold's place at Polynesian Shores from Dec. 26-Jan. 3 and it could not have been better. The condo was clean, comfortable, and the perfect size for a couple like ourselves.
We really appreciated the fact that it was a little north of the Kaanipali beach resorts. We're not too into that scene, and the private condo was cool because it was a place all to ourselves. We went to Costco, got some food, made our lunches every day, and weren't constrained by the crowdedness (for lack of a better word) of the resorts. It offered us a calm place to start and end our days. Having 7&7's on the lanai as the sunset was probably our favorite part of the trip.
Another thing, we visited other complexes on our trip, and they were filled with families with young children. Which for us, is kind of annoying. However, here, it seemed like a perfect balance of couples, people who ACTUALLY lived there, and young families with children. It wasn't Legoland, or Disney's California Adventure - thank god.
It's also close enough to Kaanapali, Lahaina, and pretty much anywhere we needed to go. The only drawback was that we had to drive to almost everything, but I wouldn't even consider that a drawback because parking was never a problem anywhere we went. I mean, if we had to park far away from a beach or something, think about it - you're walking a little more in MAUI. Tough life!
Also, Arnold is a great resource for things to do. We had no clue what to do when we booked the trip, but with the couple of things he suggested, it really helped our experience in Maui. Can't wait to go back! Most likely to this exact condo.
Aloha! (Hang loose sign)"
