Maui no ka Oi! (Maui is the Best!). Aloha Vacation Rentals is sending this email newsletter to all of its past and potential customers on a monthly basis (or sooner if we see any great airfare deals or we run any vacation rental deals). If you wish to unsubscribe, please do so at the link at the bottom of this email. We will cover getting to Maui and things to do while you are here. First a quote:


“I went to Maui to stay a week and remained five. I never spent so pleasant a month before, or bade any place goodbye so regretfully. I have not once thought of business, or care or human toil or trouble or sorrow or weariness, and the memory of it will remain with me always.” Mark Twain

The Maui Arts and Cultural Center

The Maui Arts and Cultural Center (known as the MACC" to residents) is a wonderful venue considering how small Maui is. In addition to local cultural shows such as local artists and hula, it hosts touring musicians/stage plays/comedy productions in its most intimate settings. The main theater seats 1200 people and the smaller McCoy Theater seats only 300 people. We have been to many concerts where the musicians have remarked about how great the venue is and the fact that they enjoyed playing for a such a small and enthusiastic audience. On stage artists frequently respond to questions and requests from the audience.

Assuming an event of interest is showing while you are on island, we highly recommend that you make a reservation and go. Whether it is a local hula or musician or a touring stage production or touring musicians, you will have a great time and see what a wonderful venue this is for Maui!
Upcoming this year is:

Maui Calls
Ku Mai Ka Hula
Jazz Maui 2015
Margaret Cho: The Psycho Tour
Straight No Chaser: The New Old Fashioned Tour
Sesame St Live: Lets Dance
This past year we saw Sara Evans and Jake Shimabukuro and Chris Young and every one was a great concert!

See if it works with your plans by going to the MACC website here.


Merriman's Kapalua

Want one of the best dinners with Kapalua sunset views? Go to Merriman's.

Our favorite dish here is the monchong, but the nightly fish specials frequently are its equal. We suggest going about 30 minutes before sunset and having a glass of wine at the bar at the point. Then go up to dinner afterwards. Please make reservations ahead of time to assure that you have a seat for dinner. Chef Peter Merriman uses almost 100% locally grown/caught ingredients and it shows in the tastes and quality of the finished product.

This restaurant probably has the best views on Maui overlooking Kapalua Bay and the nightly sunset over Molokai. Location! Location! Location!

And for fun, get the locals version of a doughnut, "malasadas" delivered to you in a brown paper bag, just as if you were getting them at the local fair. Except these come with some of the best dipping sauce around.

Check out their website here.


Current best Maui airfares range from $313 to $458 from Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton, Oakland, Sacramento, San Diego and San Francisco.
