Im going to be staying in maui for the whole summer in 08. I was wondering where i should stay at. Im 20 years old and im going to want a night life. I also want to live somewhere where it isnt too windy. I was thinking kihei, but i dont know much about it. I've been on vacation in maui numerous times. I only stayed on the north western part of maui ( Kahana, kaanapali, Lahaina). I think rent would be too much over there and it was a little too windy near kahana. I would also like to stay some where thats close to a good surfing spot. Any ideas??

Default I bet you'd love Nona Lani Cottages

I'm 19 and just vacationed with 6 of my friends at Nona Lani about 2 weeks ago, and it was honestly the best vacation i've ever had. The cottages are on 455 South Kihei Road, right across from th beach. There were some pretty decent waves, but if you want bigger ones stop at one of the beaches that line the highway going towards lahaina.
The cottages themselves are small and cozy; one cottage sleeps 4. Each cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom, and a nice little sitting area with a tv. There is a nice king sized bed in the bedroom, a futon, and a cot. Every cottage has a lanai and an outdoor shower so you can rinse the sand off yourself after going to the beach. Rates are something like $85 or $95 a night. The people that own the place are really, really nice and can help you find pretty much anything in town.

Nona Lani Cottages may not be for everyone...if you want to stay at a sprawling mega-resort you will be dissapointed. But if you want a nice and affordable place to stay with a great beach in your front yard, this is it.

Finding a rental in Kihei is going to be WAY easier than the West side... and probably much cheaper.

Night life options are pretty slim anywhere on the island... Kihei has some ok bars and late night eatery's (like the triangle, sansei, freds, mooses, etc)... I am not too familiar with Lahaina, but I am sure some exist over there as well.

Wind is a fact of life here and makes living in this hot humid environment so much more pleasant... When the trades die down Maui is sweltering!!! You will learn to love the wind... and miss it when there isn't any! You probably want to avoid Ma'alaea though, that is one of the windiest places (if not the windiest) on the island!

I like living in Kihei because it is pretty close to everything. I am surprised by how often I go into Kahului for things like costco, home depot, walmart, the mall, etc. All of which don't exist on the West side. Traffic can be a pain coming from Lahaina, especially during rush hour. Plus living in Kihei puts you a little closer to the north side... perfect for surfing!

Good luck with the summer plans... hope that helped!!
