Trying to trade and or rent a timeshare for my daughter's honeymoon in Sept 2012. Any suggestions for a really nice place in one of these two islands? Looking at a Marriott on II, but no luck as of yet.
Thanks,
Benny

The Marriotts and the Westins are the highest rated. There are 2 Westins side-byside on Maui and one on Kauai.

Have you put in an ongoing request with II? The online inventory is just the leftovers.

We are starting to look at Maui for same reasons. Our daughter getting married in March but decided to put off honeymoon until May or June. They want Maui as he has never been to Hawaii. DD wants to go back to Maui so we are now looking at some of the hotels and their packages and some of the timeshares to rent for them.

Since we sold one of our timeshare units last year and left II because of bad service we will be renting either Hotel or Timeshare for them.

FWIW - We just stayed on Maui for two weeks at Maui Hill and loved it! I'll say that we are timeshare snobs and usually turn down any exchange that isn't HGVC, MVC, 4S, HVC or Westin.

BUT ... the newly renovated units (granite counter tops, flat-screens, etc.) at Maui hill were nice enough, big, laid back, on beautiful grounds, had a great staff and a great view of the ocean! We walked down to the ocean through the ocean-front park every morning and had champagne at the ocean every sunset. We spent the days driving to different beaches so true ocean-front wasn't a deal breaker for us. And did I mention that it was MUCH more laid back than the ocean front resorts???? :D

This resort was truly off the radar for us but we have added it to our exclusive "snobby" list of acceptable timeshares!

For a honeymoon, I think I would recommend Kauai Beach Club (it's a Marriott). My husband and I had our "babymoon" there (last trip before our DD was born) and it was wonderful. Nice pool area, lots of hotel-type amenities (restaurants, spas, etc.). They have these great poolfront cabanas that you can rent for the day that really gave you a sense of quiet and privacy.
