We stayed at Maui Ocean Breezes for five nights in the Swaying Palms studio. We returned home two days ago, and are already plotting our trip back. The grounds of this eco-resort are tranquil and calm. There is a pool on-site, lots of organic fruit trees growing on the grounds (we got to sample the coconuts), beautiful ocean views, and a cool ocean breeze blowing steadily through all the time.
This is a wonderful place to stay if you want to get away from the hubbub and commercialism of the South and West shores and experience a more rustic, rural, and lush side of Maui. The resort is about a 15 minute drive from any restaurants or stores, but this suited us just fine because we cooked breakfast and dinner in most days. The location is a wonderful jumping off point for adventures on the Road to Hana or the Haleakala Volcano.
The amenities at the resort were fantastic! Wi-Fi was reliable, washer-dryer available for use, and they even provided us with a tablet to use during our stay! The shed is also well-stocked with beach supplies like chairs, noodles, and an umbrella. Our rental car had brake problems and we were unable to contact the rental car company, so Troy, the owner even lent us his own car for the day so that we could make a trip up to Haleakala and hike around in the crater as we'd been planning to do!
All in all, the beauty of this resort and the friendly, helpful service are beyond compare!
