    • Hawaii Aloha Travel

      Hawaii (State of) 13 minutes ago

      Has anyone used this company for their travel plans? I have only ever used a travel agent that I can go to and sit down with.
      We like to rent a condo with full kitchen and washer/dryer in unit and it sounds like they only use hotels for reservations. I wrote to them and asked about the condo and all I received as an answer was a sales pitch but no answer to my question.

      First time in Hawaii - where should I go?

      Hawaii (State of) Jun 21, 2014 at 9:18 AM

      Hi! I'm hoping to visit Hawaii for the first time in October, and I'd like to get some input as to which island(s) I should visit. I'm not much into the whole beach scene, but I'd like to see the volcanoes, do some hiking and explore some historic sites. I'll have about 2 weeks to tour around Hawaii. What would you recommend and why?

    • looking for a great place for dinner in Poipu area

      Kauai Jun 25, 2014 at 1:35 AM

      Hi! Our family will be going to Kauai this Saturday and I'm looking for a place to go have a nice dinner on Sunday night. We are staying in Poipu. We are 4 adults and two recent high school graduates (17&18), so places geared toward families with young kids are not preferred (not on vacation, sorry!). We already have the luau experience scheduled for Monday; just looking for suggestions on a casual BUT memorable place to go that's not going to break the bank either. We are open to mostly all types of cuisine. Some place to also celebrate Mom's birthday (67)?

    • Recommendations for oceanfront condo

      by ClevelandMom Online Now Sep 22, 2008 at 6:54 AM

      I'll be staying in Kailua-Kona Feb. 7-12, 2009 and am looking for an oceanfront condo with either 2 or 3 bedrooms. It will be me, my husband, my mother and my 2 year old son. So, either a 2 bedroom with a pull out or spare bed, or a 3 bedroom. I've received quotes from the following properties that have availability. Have you stayed in any of these or can you recommend one?

      Alii Villas

      White Sands Village

      Kona Bali Kai

      Keauhou-Kona Surf and Racquet (Townhouse)

      I am also looking for availability at Sea Village or Banyan Tree, however the above properties are the ones who have already gotten back to me so far. We are not looking for anything fancy, something clean, with 1000 square feet or more, and close enough to the ocean that we can hear the waves. Plus, something where our two year old will feel free to run around.

I also wanted to reserve a table at some romantic place for lunch or dinner one day. It could even be a little bit secluded/remote.
      Is there some place a little bit outside that I could take her to as a surprice.
