Going to Maui
I have heard that Grand Wailea and Hyatt on Maui are great places to stay. Anyone know of a house overlooking the ocean with pool to stay at. Wife and kids are going and taking the babysitter so we can have some adult time also. Not looking to pay the price of an extra ocean front room at either the Grand or Hyatt just to accomodate the babysitter. Anyone kite surfed over there. Looking to test out the trade winds a little.

Welcome to the site Big Mick. I am headed ot Oahu in May and looking forward to a bit of surfing on the north shore. I have never tried Kite Surfing. Sounds interesting. I might have to check it out between my frequent runs to Breakers for a beer!

I just stayed at the Fairmont kea lani which is just down the beach from the grand. We had a two bedroom villa but they also offered a three bedroom variation. It had a small dip pool/lounge area, full kitchen, bbq, and two big bathrooms and they are located just above the beach. It was a pretty quite at the hotel (all the hotels on the wailea strip were about 30% full at the time) but we enjoyed the privacy of the villa. It was also nice not being forced to eat constantly at the resorts restaurants. We bought groceries at a safeway on the way in so we had breakfast covered. It would be an option to have everyone together in a condo setting but while still being at a resort. We saw a couple families staying in them with their nanny's.

I have been there a few times for kitesurfing, I usually go to kitebeach, right by the airport. During the summer months you get nuking winds, during the winter time there is a bit less wind but the waves roll in. Kitebeach can be a bit tricky to launch and land, best to ask a local rider to point out the details to you. If you want an easier spot you can go a bit upwind and launch at Naish beach.
If you have any more questions just let me know

I have been to the Grand Wailea and the Four Seasons and we prefer the Grand. It has a friendly atmosphere and a great beach with awesome view from the rooms over looking the water as well as the restaurant in the middle over looking the fantastic view while have breakfast.

The Grand Wailea is an excellent resort which you cannot go wrong with if you stay there.
I stayed at the Fairmont kea lani when I was in Maui last September. Nice hotel with a choice of large suites or villas on the beach side. For families, I would recommend the villas as it is somewhat more private.
Enjoy your trip.
