This will be our first Hawaii vacation with a kid so seeking advice from the well informed people of trip advisor! We usually prefer to stay in the less touristy areas, but with a toddler in tow we want to feel welcome, don't want to disturb others, and want our active 2.5 year old to have a safe (no strong current, gentle waves) beach and pool (with ideally warm water since we have to go in too!) for our mid December Maui trip. I think Kaanapali is probably the best area for us, but would like to hear your opinions on that, and even better on which resorts or condo areas to look at. I appreciate the benefit of a resort for the big pool and additional amenities for the little one, but usually go the condo route so happy to do that too if we can find one that fits the bill. A view is a must since we will be stuck inside during naps!
