The only advise I can give is choose your management company wisely ! I booked my trip with Quam Properties.com and still have a smile on my face. Signed up for unit B12B4 - it was as far as the check book would take me, the wife and 2 teenage sons. For $225.00 you can beat it over Xmas New Years Break.
You'll need a car to just get out and explore, Lahaina, Hana or drive down into Kaanapali to spend the at the beach ( tip - check out Black Rock - snorkel/cliff dive at sunset) -another - ( tip right before Whalers Village there is a small beach axcess parking lot fits maybe 40 cars ) People just hang out and wait for parking spots. But going back to Kapalua you'll just slow down.
The villas locations are perfect if your looking to get away from the hussel and bussel to just relax and enjoy. We woke up 9 out of 10 morings to find - in the same place out off the reef - whales breaching - a half mile out -( tip - bring bonoculars- we used them to check out the surfers at Honolua Bay 10' waves - whales breaching all over between Kapalua and drive over to Wailea - turtles - sea otters - boats ect.)
The fresh fish and fruits around make for some creative cooking in the unit or down by the bbq's at the pools- there are 3 pools, used them all. You have the Kapalua Resort hiking trails - walked the coastal trail every morning - 4 trails total of 15 miles if you like to hike. Walked to Kapalua Bay beach every day to sun and swim, tons of fish and the sea turtles are larger than you think, swam with one that was the size of a coffee table.
Took drive north 1 mile for sunrise - check out the picture of the rock - you think your in a natural place and this proves it , there was a small little pit next to the rock. Walked to Kapalua Bay Beach everyday to snorkel with plenty of fish - a sea turtle the size of a small coffee table - saw a eel - a sea otter came in the bay one day - just wow!
Last big tip - On Weds. nights at Bettys Beach Cafe - 1st its lobster night full dinner
$ 18.00 next you get theSunset and the Luau at Leles free over the railing (see the picks)
