does anyone know the cheapest possible place to stay on maui. i am very attracted to go there, however i find only relatively expensive places on the web.
We'll be going to Hawaii this summer for the first time. We've got three weeks total, and are trying to decide which Islands to visit. I'm definitely wanting to see Kauai. Debating whether to see both Big Island and Maui in addition, or just doing one of them.
We're into National Parks, diving, light hiking, and bigtime snorkelling (maybe a little beaching/surfing).
We do however want to have a little spare time, for just taking it easy, so my real issue is probably whether we will have that if we do all three islands.
Going to Waikiki for 9 days in late April, don't want to waste anytime whilst there, wondering if anybody knows of any hidden gems or awesome things to do there. If people have any recommendations or ideas about being shown around that would be great, Ive got a few thing in mind, i am super out going so any idea would be awesome.
Do the locals wear jeans out there at all?
Maybe at night?
Im headed out there sunday and don't wanna dress like a kook.
Got list from Internet.
Want to take photos of views they may offer.
Are any of these false leads without views?:
Dave & Buster’s
Mai Tai Bar, 1450 Ala Moana Blvd
Home Bar & Grill
The Burning Tree Hookah Lounge
Tiki’s Grill & Bar
Side Street Inn
Morio’s Sushi Bistro
Any others with good views missing from list?
Thanks in advance!
I am stock shooter. I supply photos to educational textbooks, travel media.
My March-April itinerary is SYD-BNE-MEL-HNL-LAX.
At each location I am looking for free observation decks
or high floor restaurants, hotels, office buildings where
I can take city views -- no window better than window.
Any advice from those "in the know" appreciated. Thanks!

Hi...I'm a single guy who will be staying in Waikiki for 7 nights beginning this Friday, Feb 21...departing Feb 28...if anyone wants to get together to hang out some, have lunch etc....lemme know!
I am going to Honolulu for th first time in March. I am staying near Waikiki and was wondering where the best place to go out at night would be? I'm a single guy in my mid 20's and was hoping to be around the same age group and atmosphere. Also, is there anything I HAVE to do while I'm there? Any thing that can't be passed up?
I (37 years old, single traveler) will be traveling to Hilo in May. I am looking for a nice budget (no hostel) place to stay.
Can anyone recommend me?
What is the best way to prepare for this adventure?
I want to rent a car at the Honolulu cruise port. How close is the nearest agency? Is the airport the closest? Is there a shuttle to/from?
I'll be going to Honolulu in December and really want to do early morning Sunrise beach yoga while I'm there. I can't find anything. Any recommendations?
We don't want to stay in Waikiki, looking for a more relaxed vacation, like Haleiwa or the North shore area. But, we have not had a lot of experience staying outside of Waikiki. We are looking for something for our two small children, their grandmother, and us. We want to be sure to stay in a safe neighborhood, etc, and we're hoping for a vacation rental very close to the beach. Safe swimming a must too. Thanks for any help you might be able to give.
We are staying at the Hilton Villiage, we wish to go to and from the USS Missouri. We have already toured the Arizona, but didn't have time for the Missouri last time. What is the quickest, easiet transportation to and from. We don't have a car.
Of these two island locations where would you recommend to stay based on; walking to the restaurants, sights, shopping, location to the beach etc.?
Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki or Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort or JW Marriott Ihilani?
Outrigger Royal Kahana or Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa or Honua Kau Resort & Spa?
I realize that hotel quality will vary and I am interested in all input. Thanks in advance for all comments, Chuck
So, there's a very rare job opening in my profession in a place called Kapa'a. I know nothing about life in a small town in Hawai'i. Anybody care to fill me in on the culture and quality of life in Kapa'a?
I just reached the end of my tether with winter in New England.
Thanks in advance.
I will be staying at the JW Marriott Ihilani next week and have a tour on Thursday that meets at the Ala Moana Hotel on Mahukona Street at 8:30 a.m.
What time should I leave Ihilani to get to my tour on time? I have to find parking too. I know with no traffic it's 30 minutes but I have heard traffic can be bad. Would 7:00 a.m. be early enough?
Any advice appreciated!
I will be in Maui for one week during the month of may.
I am thinking about starting in Kihei and use it as a kind of "base" to explore the rest of the island.
Is this a good idea?
What are the must-see's and must-do's on Maui?
sorry about the typo the store I am trying to find is next to havaiki. that I am trying to find. its on the same side of the street as the store havaiki

We're traveling with a 2 year old to Maui for about a week and a half next week. Any suggestions on what to do / what to visit with a toddler? We'll be renting a car the whole time we're there. We're staying in Kihei.
Also how hard is it to find a baby sitter for a couple of hours there? Would they come to our condo? Or we have to drop her off at a day care? Are the baby sitters trust worthy? Please advise.
I was wondering if the airport at Honolulu has a lounge that you can purchase a meal,have a shower etc or do you need to be a member of an airline club? As we have a 7.30 am flight could we breakfast & shower there while waiting for our flight back to Melbourne ? As we have such an early check in is it easy to get back to the airport ?
Thanking you for any replies
