Need some help finding a suitable place to stay in Hawaii? If you have a travel question, email us at

Q. Hi, we are looking for a condo/house to rent on Maui for 4 adults and a 2-year-old for around 8 days plus in August. We would ideally like a place close to a safe beach and close to a town for supplies, etc.

The house would need 2 bedrooms and if one of them could fit a child's bed or 3 bedrooms and nice outdoor area to entertain. We will be hiring a car to get around so any clues on that as well would help. Thanks, Rozzie.

A. Based on your requirements I would suggest that the best area for you to stay would be Ka'anapali Beach.

There are numerous resorts located on Ka'anapali Beach, which is a lovely stretch of white sand with safe swimming (although the surf does pick up in winter months).
