A Typical Time-Share Presentation
Hawaii, especially Maui, is a very popular vacation destination, so it can be difficult to trade your timeshare elsewhere for one in Hawaii. If you can get a trade to use a timeshare in Maui, the best places to stay are Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club (on Kaanapali Beach) or Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas. Another good choice, though not as great as those two, is the Kaanapali Beach Club (formerly an Embassy Suites). Much less desirable are Sands of Kahana, which is a few miles from the main Kaanapali area, and Kahana Falls, which is also far, plus is not on a beach. Also much less desirable is Maui Hill (about half of which is timeshares) because it is a long walk uphill from the distant beach.
Timeshares Time Shares Info
This page has helpful information and advice about all aspects of Maui and Hawaii timeshares, whether you write it as one word timeshares or two words time shares. Here you will learn about:
Timeshares purchase – Is it a good investment? Is it better to buy from the developer or on the secondary market?
Timeshares trades – Which Maui timeshare should you try to get in exchange for the timeshare that you already own outside of Hawaii?
Timeshares sales – How can you get rid of a timeshare you own and no longer want?
Timeshares rentals – Can you rent a timeshare even if you don’t want to buy one?
Timeshares presentations – Should you go to those sales presentations that offer the free gifts and discount activities?
The best deals on timeshare purchases are on the secondary market. You can often pay 25% to 50% less when you buy a timeshare that somebody else previously owned and wants to sell, compared to buying new. There are several Timeshare Resales companies that can help you find the best Maui timeshares for your needs. SellMyTimeshareNow.com is one such company which has a large inventory and some of the lowest prices. By my calculations, the purchase of a new Hawaii or Maui timeshare directly from the developer is not a good investment, since the cost is high and a large part of what you pay goes toward marketing and sales commissions.
Road to Hana
It was an epic road trip. We got a camper van. We drove on the road to Hana with no issues, camped in the rain, camped in the wind, by the beach, under streetlights and in the middle of nowhere. We loved exploring the road to Hana at a much slower pace. This was an incredible experience. Thanks, Aloha!
Sea Escape Maui Boat Rental
“Yeah, perfect day, we saw two big humpback whales, thousands of fishes, turtles, the cliffs and much more! We were able to see 150 meters down in the sea. All in all, it was an awesome experience, without any ripple out there. It could not be any better!”
We went to the south east side. Then we went to Molokini. We saw a 5-feet white shark. Water clarity was amazing. Then we just cruised around. We also caught a couple of fishes. It was a great experience all around! Thanks!”
“Well! We took the kids to Molokini, we did Snorkeling, and we were lucky to see some whales. The boat was wonderful to drive, this is our third time with your service, and we will try to be back.”

“Well what can I say about the trip of a lifetime? We got engaged. We spent a magical time at a National Park. Aloha Outdoors was totally cool and showed me everything. We spent less for a home and car than anyone could manage with a hotel and rental car.”
Joel and Tanya
“Being able to rent the camper van for a full 10 days made our Maui experience so much more!! In fact I have sent dozens of people your way already, so expect a few more people from Juneau Alaska! Thank you sooo very much it was the best way to travel! Oh, and keep the extra food and drinks!”

“We rented a camper for my fiancé’s birthday and had a such a great and memorable experience! What a beautiful and unique way to see the island. Our friends rented a second van a we toured the island as a group. It was an opportunity of a lifetime on a minimal budget. Thanks Aloha Outdoors.”
“What a great time on the water, the boat was fantastic and ran flawlessly. They gave us great instructions and recommendations on where to go. We went to Molokini crater and did some snorkeling, fun time and beautiful fish galore. Then on the way to turtle town the Humpback whales put on a show of a lifetime. I just love the whales and dolphins. How incredible to see them breach so close. Nothing better than having your own boat and the freedom to go where you want and when you want. 5 Hours was just the perfect amount of time.”
“Just got done with the boat rental from a few hours ago. In a word, AWESOME! We started at 6am so we beat the crowds for snorkeling at Molokini, then just cruised around looking for whales. We saw at least 10, with a few of them fairly close. I will recommend this to anyone coming to Maui. The staff was great at setting us up and made it a breeze. The boat was very nice and we only had to spend $31 on gas, although we didn’t go as far as most people might. If you’re thinking about doing it, do it!”
We live here and we’re looking for a way to get on the water without buying our own boat. They gave us an awesome orientation, launched the boat, and off we went. So many whales! Went over to Molokini, then over to Wailea to cruise the coast. Found a mooring, went swimming & ate lunch. Coming back, they were right there to take our lines, and take over from there. So nice to just show up, take off, and then leave the clean up to them! Looking forward to doing it again! Highly recommend this avenue to all!”
