Dr. Podach is fairly new in town, and she practices out of the Community Clinic of Maui. She is caring and concerned and a good diagnostician. She has late hours on Wednesday, and can be seen after you are done with work.
Dr. Sue has been in practice for many years. He does everything from filling cavities to treating for temporal mandibular joint syndrome. He's soft-spoken and gentle, and will do his best to make sure your visit is painless.
These guys have been in business for years, from father to son.
They are competent and friendly, and if they can't show up at the time they promise to come, they'll call you and keep you updated.
They simply do good work, and you can expect to pay for it.
This is a good plumbing contractor to deal with. You'll see his truck, with advertising on the side, all over the island because he does good work and works everywhere. He's helpful and friendly and stands behind the work he does.
I really like the guys at Valley Isle Electric. They know their profession and they do good work. When they set a date, they show up on that date. They explain what went wrong and caused your electrical problem, and when it's appropriate they offer you options for resolving the problem. They also stand behind the work they do, and if you have a problem they'll come out and fix it without giving you any hassle.
If you are staying in Kihei or Wailea, odds are you'll stop by the Shops of Wailea to eat or do some shopping. Lapperts is a stop you should make. While now known as well for their coffee as for their ice cream, this is premium ice cream and every lick will confirm that. This is a small location, and I never have been able to find the peach ice cream that I first tasted on Kauai, but they do have a good selection of standard and tropical flavors, so be prepared to taste before ordering.
I love Cold Stone Creamery. You pick your flavor, they place a slab of it on a piece of granite, and then they ask what you would like mixed in. Fruit? Nuts? Candy? I like my Italian Lemon Ice plain, but then it tastes so different with a little bit of fresh raspberries mixed in. Cheesecake ice cream with a little bit of graham crackers and cherries mixed in is another favoite. I could go on an on. If you've never tried Cold Stone, you should If you've been to Cold Stone before, there's nothing more I need to say to you.
No where will you find critiques of shaved ice more than you will in Hawaii. Aloha Shave Ice is a tiny little shop located in Paia town. As you enter Paia on the way to Hana, park in the free public lot on the mountain side of the road and walk across the street. You won't have any problem finding the "Aloha Shave Ice" sign. On a hot day, this is just perfect to quench your thirst and lower your temperature.
It helps to know that this restaurant was opened by Don Ritchey, formerly a chef at Bev Gannon's Haliimaile General Store. The atmosphere is simple yet pleasing, and having enjoyed food here many times I know that any food served at a reception held here would have guests begging for doggie bags. This also is a great location, and at this part of Baldwin Avenue you can find on the street parking.
The Maui Prince is located after Wailea's row of hotels and on the way to McKenna Beach, so it's a little out of the way and that means you will find this to be a quiet location. I don't mean to make it sound secluded, since it's only a ten minute drive to the center of Kihei. The grounds are beautiful, and the beach in front of this hotel is one of the best on the island and one of Maui's best snorkeling spots. The hotel itself is a resort property with good sized rooms that are comfortably furnished. People who stay here love the service, and the peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. This is a great choice for that once in a lifetime vacation.
