... was no body near the mask! When we returned to shore we talked with the firefighters and found out that the snorkeler had been located safe and sound.
Our second stop was Airport beach. This was a wonderful spot with a broad beach and a grass lawn shaded by towering palm trees. We were able to do two drift snorkels where we covered about a mile of reef just by remaining ...
We are up before the birds this morning it's dark still and the waves are all we hear. We are heading off to Haleakala Crater. Bryan is going to do a training ride there and of course I am the car / wing man (which I'm happy to be) I remember my Aunt Bev used to do this for my Uncle on his long rides I feel a connection here :-) So I'll hang out in Kahului where he will start the ride, there is a Starbucks that opens ...

... We walked down Front Street, the Main Street adjacent to the ocean. We were amazed by the number of jewelry stores and art galleries. They also had many stores selling shaved ice and gelato which goes well in this climate. Many of the restaurants and bars had open decks with views of the ocean.

We spent the entire day at the same beach today, which led to a pretty bad sunburn on my back making it pretty painful to wear clothes! Then we ate at a Mexican restaurant called Cilantro. I got the chicken taco plate and it was pretty good. I think I would have enjoyed the steak tacos more, but I wanted to change it up a bit.
For the rest of the trip I'm looking forward to going to the aquarium not too far from here and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Valley Isle Resort Lahaina
We stayed at the Valley Isle Resort on Kahana Beach from December 29, 2004 - thru Jan 5, 2005. We rented the unit directly thru the owners. The condo location is great, we rented a studio unit (#707), which is directly on the ocean and offers a great view. The unit was more than large enough for the two of us, was very well equipped and comfortable, and we would highly recommend renting from these owners again. We had all the comforts of home plus an incredible view and loved going to sleep with the sound of the surf!!! Why, the owners even provided CDs of Hawaiian music to enjoy!!! The view from the lanai was breathtaking and we thrilled in whale watching every day!!! We plan on going back again, and will certainly rent from these owners again. Thank you so much, Rich & Barbara for making our trip truly enjoyable!!!!
Our Perfect Honeymoon
We have just returned from Kahana, staying in Suite #106 at the Valley Isle Resort, and just wanted you to know that we had a wonderful vacation. We thought the studio apartment was delightful, very well equipped and furnished, and we felt very much at home. This has got to be the best view on Maui and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to the waves at night. Our ground floor condo was only 20 steps to the waters edge! The people were very friendly and helpful and recommended places to visit that are not in the usual "tourist" areas. We will certainly recommend your condo to our friends and colleagues at work and we'll certainly return ourselves. Thank you very much Jack and Sally for contributing to a very enjoyable vacation!
Unit 1105 is the Best!
We just came back from our honeymoon and booked unit 1105 through the owner, Jeff. The unit is beautiful! Breathtaking views of the ocean, right in front of your eyes. Our unit was ocean and beach front. Booking through the owner was so easy because he is very knowledgeable and genuine. He really cares about his guests and shows it by providing a beautiful condo with all of the amenities such as stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, tiled floors. If you want a great place while in Maui, book unit 1105. You won't regret it.
Very nice place. My wife and I went there in late April, early May for our honeymoon and stayed in condo 1007, which we rented directly from the owners (see -----------------------------)
Very nicely kept and clean and affordable condo with a great oceanfront view. The beach is nice, although we didn't spend much time on it -- all beaches in Maui are public so you can drive and visit any beach you want.
If you are considering going to Maui, I would recommend this place -- for the money, it beats any other place. Other hotels in the area (outrigger, marriott, etc.) charge 2-3 times the rate for a room with a view that isn't even close.
Lanai View Etched in memory
Based on reviews in Trip Advisor, my wife and I stayed at Valley Isle Resort studio condo on the 6th floor. We had a great time and a wonderful view of the sunset from the lanai. This will be etched in our memory forever and worth the price. The rooms were neat and nicely decorated and the staff were also very helpful and even accomodated a late checkout.
We loved it and will positively be back.
A great place - very quiet and beautiful views
We just got back from a week at the Valley Isle. We stayed in unit 401 which is described as oceanview. I would have described it as oceanfront - the view from our lanai was beautiful, with an unobstructed view of the ocean plus the beautiful tropical landscaping of the resort. The pool was very nice - tile was pretty and never had trouble with finding a chair. Not a huge building so pool nor beach not crowded. We were concerned because of no ac but it really was not a problem as we had breezes each night while there. Highly recommend it.
Nice for the $$$
My wife & I stayed in a 1 bedroom unit 2001, Very nice ocean view, all amenities. Location is a little tough, mostly cloudy in the mountains, you drive 5-10 minutes to Kanapali weather is 100 % better. Not a bad resort though.
I stayed @ the Valley Isle Resort in March 2003 and loved it! I had been to Maui in 2001 and stayed @ the Four Seasons so i had my expectations set pretty high and i was so impressed with our condo! The complex is located directly on the beach and the views from our private lanai were incredible! Our room was very neatly kept and the entire staff was just the best! Our stay was incredibly quiet and peaceful (almost as if there was nobody else in the entire place!) For the price, location, beach and room, I wouldn't have stayed anywhere else! I plan to stay there again next year and I highly recommend it!
A real "sleeper"
Reasonably priced, and right on the beach ! Quiet location, yet very close to Lahaina and Kaanapali beach. We've stayed in both those places, and didn't get a moment's rest because of all the people and noise. Valley Isle Resort is the place. Most condos rented by a group of individual owners. check out ... website that's where we found them.
When going to Maui, forget staying in a hotel! A one bedroom condo at the Valley Isle Resort is less than half the price of a room at a four star hotel which will have no view and no kitchen. We stayed in Unit 610 (there are 12 floors total), which is a nice corner unit with separate lanais off both the living room and bedroom. There is a full kitchen with a dishwasher, where you can prepare a nice romantic private meal in your condo on the lanai directly over the water. Alot nicer than some overpriced crowded restaurant in a hotel or Lahaina! Have lunch out, you'll save alot of money (maybe for an overnight stay in Hana?). The lanais look out over the sea to Lanai and Molokai. We saw rainbows many mornings, and even some whales (we were there in December). There is also a washer/dryer in the unit, along with cable TV and a stereo. The condo was well cared for, nicely decorated, and there is a desk in the lobby with a very helpful staff to address any problems or to give advice for your trip. There is a nice beach right in front of the condos (there is some coral so be careful if you go swimming) and also a pool area and a large gym. Within walking distance is a shopping center with services and a Roy's Restaurant (very good food). Down the road is a Star Supermarket. We paid $125 per night (around X-mas it's $140), an astounding deal when you consider you are getting so much more than you would at a hotel. The unit is located in Kahana, about a ten minute drive from Lahana to the south and about five minutes from Kapalua to the north. It's a bit cooler than Wailea (which I like, no need for air conditioning) which is about 45 minutes away to the south.
