June 2007 Trip to Maui

We just got back from a week in Maui. We stayed at the Maui Prince on Makena Beach in South Maui. Above are photos of the entrance and some exterior grounds. They hosted the King's Trail Triathlon while we were there. In the past we've gone to a luau, taken a boat trip, driven to all the sights. This time we mostly did.....not much! Which was great.

Here are two shots of the interior courtyard and garden area of the hotel.


These are the interior garden stream and large koi fish pond. You can buy fish food and they all come with open mouths.

Hotel pool and beach, where we spent alot of time just lounging, swimming, snorkeling, iced tea drinking....


Beach area - there are coral reefs, fish, and turtles right off the shore! We had great snorkeling every day.


Bailey House Museum - an old missionary house and girl's school. The huge outdoor stone was used for various pounding needs. The museum houses a number of really nice paintings by Edward Bailey. Museum link:


Old Keawalai Church (1832) and graveyard near Makena Landing.


Below is the main street of Makawao - a quaint upcountry town with lots of nice, artsy type shops.

Kitty in an urn at the Greek Bistro!

We had a great time!
