    • Mountain Riders Bike Tours

      Maui Apr 7, 2014 at 10:53 AM

      Thinking of going on the Mountain Riders Sunrise Bike Tour, the day after we arrive, figure early pick-up (ie 2-3am)won't be too hard as we haven't adjusted to island time change. Anyways, reviews seem good and bad. We have three kids, aged 16, 14 and 11. Do you feel they will be okay on this tour? Will bikes be the appropriate size for them? Any opinions or helpful tips greatly appreciated. Thxs!!!

      I have read it is a good idea to drive straight to the pools, then do the road in reverse. I don't know if this is a stupid question, but will I still be able to use the Road to Hana CD? Or will it be complicated, I don't want to miss anything.

      One week in Maui, Kihei as a base?

      Maui Jan 14, 2014 at 3:06 PM

      Hi,

      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?

      Thanks!!

      Traveling With a Toddler

      Maui Jan 7, 2014 at 3:48 PM

      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.

      Thanks guys.

    • Sheraton v Westin Maui (Ka'analpai)

      Maui Sep 30, 2013 at 5:31 PM

      I've been doing research for our honeymoon for a while now and have narrowed down my selection to these 2 hotels. It seems that currently Sheraton reviews rate higher due to room renovations and expansion of the hotel. However the negative reviews currently on the Westin seem to be a result of them undergoing renovations. So I guess my question is does anyone know what renovations the Westin is undertaking? Will they be finished by June 2014? And with room renovations complete would this make the Westin your preferred hotel? Thanks!

      Hana

      Maui Mar 23, 2013 at 1:31 AM

      I have noticed during my research that Hana seems to be a must visit spot. Research also tells me it is a big day. Is too much for one day? And a very important consideration for me are there guard rails along the side of the road on the steep parts. I ask because on a trip to Yosemite a couple of years ago there wasn't and the drop was spectacular! Very unnerving! Ha ha especially when you drive on the wrong side of the road!!
      We are spending 6 nights on Maui and 5 in Honolulu. That uses up my 2 weeks school vacation time to the full. I am sure we will want to return. :)

      Car hire

      Maui Mar 9, 2013 at 8:27 PM

      Hi,
      Our TA has recommended we hire a car while visiting Maui in September 2013. It seems it is an hours drive from the airport to Kaanapali. We will have come from Australia and wonder if we will feel up to driving for an hour on arrival. Also we probably do not need a car on the first or last day.
      Is it feasible to get transfers to and from the airport and pick up and drop off a hire car in or near Kaanapali?
      Thanks

      I understand that the keonehe' ehe' e trailhead is just a short distance from the lookout point, at 9700 ft. My wife had trouble with altitude sickness hiking in Lake Tahoe (7k ft?) so do you guys think this trailhead would be too high for her?
      Is their any trail into the crater that has less elevation?

      Visit to Oahu with either Maui or the Big Island... which one???

      Maui Nov 20, 2012 at 3:25 AM

      We are planning a holiday to Hawaii and hope to get some suggestions on the choise of islands to visit. We are hoping to spend 5 nights on Waikiki - Oahu with 3 nights on either Maui or the Big Island.

      We love the beach, nature walk, waterfalls and of course the opportunity to see a volcano is very tempting as we've never seen this. I hope you can give me some feedback to make this choice a little easier.

    • First time in Maui!

      Maui Oct 17, 2012 at 10:23 PM

      Hello everyone!

      This is my boyfriends and I first trip down to Maui and was hoping for some suggestions! We're heading down November 11th and heading out November 21st.. So ten nights in total!

      We're young hippies at heart from Vancouver, BC, Canada. We're outdoorsy, social, like more local not to touristy areas, good food and live music. My boyfriend is a musician so it would be cool to check out some live music venues. I personally am a chef and would love to get a hold of tradition must eat hawaiian food. Looking for some of the best beaches around and where to get delicious drinks/nightlife too!

      One of our friends lives in Hana and has a place for us to stay for a few nights. Our friend also has camping gear for us so we were looking to head out camping somewhere as well. It would be awesome if there was some sort of day hike to an area you can camp in. We rented a jeep too so we'll have access to the road the entire time we're there as well.

      Maui Aug 25, 2012 at 7:12 PM

      Hi,
      Traveling next summer to Hawaii with two teens, pre college trip.
      Thinking we will do 5 days in Maui, I've been told SO much to do there,
      then finishing up in Oahu 4 days at the Disney Resort Aulani, we are DVC members. I have heard Oahu is more relaxing/less to do?

      Where is the best resort to stay on Maui for 2 active teens.We def. want to do the Haleaka sunrise ride, snorkel, maybe a hike?? Condo or Hotel?

      What airline flies from Maui to Oahu? Wondering if this will be hard to do logistically? Any advice appreciated.

    • Is Advance booking required for Mauii activities ???

      Maui Aug 5, 2012 at 12:23 PM

      We are a group of 11 adults travelling to Maui around the September long weekend ( 8/29 - 9/4). Can someone please suggest if we need to book for tours/activities like luaus, para-sailing , jet-ski, Haleakala sunrise tour in advance or can we purchase them after going to the island . Few of my friends have suggested that usually one can get better deals on these after going to island and are cheaper rather than booking them online/in advance. But my concern is since we are such a huge group , don't want to be in a situation where after going there either there is no availability or the tours end up being more costly than online purchase .

      Also please suggest on the activities that have to be booked in advance and ones that can be done after going to the island .
      Please Helppppp !!!!

      Catering for pu pus

      Aloha everyone,
      We will be heading to Maui for my daughter's wedding next weekend. Yeah! I would like to invite everyone over to our condo on our first night for champagne and pu pus. Can anyone suggest a place in the Kihei area where I could order a few pu pus to share with my family and guests? We don't need anything fancy, just some trays of nibbles to have with their champagne. (i.e. shrimp wings, veggies, fruit, etc.) I checked out Safeway, but their appies didn't look too appealing. Any suggestions where we can order ahead and pick up or have them delivered. Mahalo,

    • Renting A Car/Airport Transfers

      Maui Apr 16, 2012 at 12:50 PM

      I was initially going to book airport transfers from OGG to Hyatt Regeny Maui which totted up to about £80 return for the both of us.

      I then saw that you can hire a little car for our 6 night stay for £130 so it looked like a good option, allowing us to travel around the island for our stay.

      I then start reading about all these scams for car hire, additional costs, deposits, fuel surcharges etc.

      I'm now confused as what to do. I'd like to rent a car if not's that much more than transfers, happy to pay for any damage we unlikely cause but do not want to get ripped off.

      Can anybody give me a steer, I've never rented a car abroad before. I know how to refuse upgrades etc but what insurance and extras do I actually need (UK Resident) and what is the likely damage deposit likely to be?
