Marriott Maui Ocean Club Lahaina Tower Ocean View Two Bedroom

Fixed Week 52, includes New Year's

This area is paradise. One day sit by the pool. Next day walk out another 50 feet and sit on the beach and snorkel the reef with an occasional turtle and schools of tropical fish. Next day hike or bike a volcano or visit a nature park. Next day go surfing or take a lesson. Then go walk downtown Lahina through the art galleries. Go shopping. Watch the crafters on the street carve totems. Buy a tee shirt that you will wear until it dissolves. Buy one with sophomoric humor that you will never wear. Go try to find the Surfing Goat Dairy somewhere around Haleakala. Take the drive to Hana (once). If you think you are young, jump off some waterfalls into deep pools. The whales come in around December. Go see them on a boat or even from shore. Dolphins and flying fish too. Go sailing or deep-sea fishing. Walk down to one of several bars and not have to worry about driving back. Learn scuba. Take a ferry. And eat out every night at a great place, or save a few dollars and grill everything from fish to steak to Costco pizzas. This is the USA, you don't have to worry about the water or the food. Maybe get rained on by a late afternoon shower. See a rainbow or two or three. Read about the weather on the US east coast and laugh at your friends.

We got some constructive feedback from previous renters. They loved loved the villa, but did have some points that we felt we should list in the "heads up" category: For instance, we heard from other folks that the arcade was "never" open. They also suggested that we mention the "Chair Police." The pools are generally heavily used (you should reconnoiter and find the one that is best for you), so sometimes if you go down early and put your towel and book on a chaise lounge in order to claim it for the day, the "Chair Police" will come by and liberate it. On a positive note, there is ice cream in the gift shop, open late. Also, on Sunday's they set up shopping right along the beach.

And the resort is first class. Maid service mid week. Only conceivable complaint is that the WiFi lazes along at island speed during peak use hours. So go down and hoist a Mai Tai or a Lava Flow. Life is good.
