It's an former sugar-cane plantation town, with a lot of the old architecture still intact, a self-styled "progressive" hamlet nestled in between a shoreline condo sprawl and the town of Lahaina, belted with big hotels.
This place sounds like a great place to just drop off the face of the earth, do some windsurfing and swimming on the white sand beaches, check out the road-side waterfalls, tee up at the nearby golf course, hike through the local rainforest, or walk to town, with its an amazing array of restaurants and shops (ethnic art and Indian curry, anyone?)
Tripadvisor reviews at this point only amount to two, but they rave about it (apparently so does Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood). And we love the whole idea of yoga in the yard, rentable bikes, stocked mini-bars and boogie board rentals. Aloha, indeed.
Rates are at around $239 for two people.
