We arrived in Maui around noon, picked up our rental car, and checked into our condo rental. We are renting a two-bedroom condo and so far are loving it! It's very spacious and very close to the ocean. Check out the beautiful view from our lanai! We have a great view of the islands of Lanai, Kahoolawe, and Molokini.
In the evening we drove about 45 minutes northwest to Lahaina and had a romantic sunset dinner at Pacific'O, one of the few beachfront restaurants on Maui. The food was incredible and the sunset was breathtaking. Since this was to us the first official day of our honeymoon, we splurged and got the works: wine, appetizers, main course, and dessert. Pacific'O is definitely one of our top recommendations if you plan a trip to Maui. The food was great and you can't beat the view!
It sprinkled a little (more like mist) at the beginning of our dinner, but it didn't last long and we did get a beautiful reward for sitting in the rain. :-)
