And some clever quip...
If you are looking for a low cost trip to
Maui, don't go at spring break. We normally go to Hong Kong
for Spring break, but then COVID came along and all flights were
canceled and we stopped traveling. We still can't get into
Hong Kong (currently it's residents only). My sister visits
Maui in the summer so we decided we should try going to roughly
the same place she does (Kihei) so that our kids can talk about
the same experiences. All accommodations in Hawaii is
required to have an on island contact number which means there are
many different management companies. Previously I have dug
through lots of management companies and found a deal, but this
time I just went to AirBnB and picked one in the right price range
and neighborhood. The price worked out to $6726.22 CAD for
10 nights for our stay at the Worldmark Kihei. The resort is
a timeshare (you own some number of points, fee to stay) and the
owner listed his stay on AirBnB. The resort was nice -
parking was good, room was clean, staff were friendly, kids liked
Across the street from our resort is Kamaole Beach Park I - a
beautiful sandy beach with palm trees and a fresh water shower to
clean up after. If we were close to the resort at sunset, we
went out to watch the sun hit the horizon.
There were as many as three food trucks
outside of our resort (close to the beach). Two served Thai
style food (Thai breaded shrimp anyone?) and one was a "Shave Ice"
modified van. We really liked the shave ice.
There were quite a few other food places
close by. We went to Maui bread a few times for picnic
supplies and tried another shave ice place when Gus's Bus wasn't
