    • Road to Hana or road from Napili to Kahului?

      Maui Mar 5, 2015 at 9:16 AM

      We are staying north of Lahaina and are wondering which of these routes would serve us best for sight seeing. We are allowing a full day for this journey. Other friends have recommended the Napili to Kahului route, although most seem to talk about the Hana trip. Thoughts?

    • Where to stay in Kihei?

      Kihei Jan 18, 2015 at 2:19 PM

      we are travelling to Maul from April 17 to 25th. We thought Kihei would be a good location as far as being fairly accessible to other points on Maui. Can anyone give us recommendations on either a hotel or Condo location. It is overwhelming looking at all the choices on VRBO. There are many that look good but you never know. We are in our fifties and it is just the 2 of us. Any advice?

    • Whale watching

      Maui Dec 17, 2014 at 11:51 PM

      I'm going to Maui with my family (5 adults) next week. Someone had suggested going whale watching with the Pacific Whale Foundation. I've looked on their website, and they seem to offer a multitude of packages to do the same thing (so it seems).

      Any suggestions or experiences with these whale watching tours? They seem like a fun family activity for a reasonable price.

      I think the rafting option is a no-go, as my mom can't swim and will be scared to death. She'll want the stability of a boat.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Stay close to Haleakala or drive from Lahaina? Jan weather?

      Maui Nov 5, 2014 at 2:20 PM

      Hello, We are touring Maui for 8 days. Here is our plan until now:

      December 28th: Landing in Kahului at 10:30 AM

      December 28th: Drive around West Maui

      December 29th: Drive to Hana

      December 29th and 30th: Stay in Hana

      December 31st: Drive beyond Hana, and the back side of Haleakala

      Dec 31st night: Stay near Haleakala or Lahaina?

      Rest: Stay in Lahaina.

      On the drive back from Hana on 31st, our plan is to stop overnight somewhere close to Haleakala National Park to catch the sunset on 31st or sunrise on Jan 1st. One advantage of staying close is that we don't have to wake up early and drive for 3 hours to catch the sunrise. But on the flip side if the weather is bad on 1st morning, we will have no choice to pick a different day. How is the weather generally in early January? Do you think its better to stay in Lahaina and pick a day to drive up Haleakala depending on the weather?

      Maui Sep 14, 2014 at 9:52 AM

      If I leave from Ka'anapali and return there is the entire road to Hana do able in one day, it gets dark at 6:00pm? What time would I have to leave in the morning and how many hours would it take. Is it better to do the Road to Hana on Saturday, Sunday or during the week because of local traffic? How many miles of unpaved roads are on the Road to Hana and what will the conditions be like in October?

    • How Long Does it take to drive the Road to Hana

      Maui Aug 21, 2014 at 3:47 PM

      How long does it take to drive the entire Road To Hana from Ka'anapali and back using the long route. They say it takes 12-13 hours. We would like to do some hikes, do some snorkeling see the red and black sand beaches. Will the trip be better splitting it into two days? Also, if I decide to get a a place to sleep for a night so I can split it into two days, what is a great location and a "reasonable place to stay. Guest houses, B&Bs and small notes with Island flair would be great. Please send rates if you can.

      Where to stay on Maui

      Maui Aug 17, 2014 at 1:49 AM

      If we loved Hanalei on Kauai, does anyone have suggestions on where to stay on Maui? Upcountry, Paia, Lahaina or possibly Hana (but not sure about the road to get there :-/)? Other suggestions? It's just the two of us, staying for 5 days. We like paddle boarding, hiking/nature and local restaurants, and would prefer to avoid big, busy resorts.
      Any advice much appreciated

    • Questions About Hana

      Hana Jul 24, 2014 at 7:15 PM


      I am planning on moving to Hawaii sometime next year, and I am considering residing in the city of Hana. But I have a few questions about it.

      Is housing affordable in Hana? What is the estimated price range for renting a home? I was hoping to rent a small and detached/private 2 bedroom house when I moved there, and I was looking to spend in the ballpark of $800-$850 a month.

      Are there any job opportunities there?

      Finally, are there stores within the vicinity of Hana, or would you have to go out of your way to find them?

      Thanks in advance for any responses.

      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.
