      Best Camping in Kauai

      Kauai Sep 5, 2016 at 11:43 AM

      Husband and I want to do 4 nights in Kauai, then head to Maui. It will be around Christmas, probably December 25 to December 30 in Kaui, then December 30-January 4 in Maui. We want to tent camp to save money, and spend what we save on a rental car, but I'm open for suggestions for cheap cabin accommodations. I've been researching the cabins at Koke'e State Park, Tent Camping at Camp Sloggett (they have a hot shower, which I found appealing, but there are some mixed reviews). Any suggestions for beach camping? Since we have a car should we stay on the beach instead as it will be warmer? We love hiking, which is why I was thinking Koke'e, but I also want to explore some cute towns and enjoy the beaches. Never been to Hawaii, but we are from Alaska so roughing it is not a problem for us, lol!

Suggestions for island, hotels, restaurants appreciated! Will even document trip to share on site with others! She's stood with me through thick and thin. This is her dream.

      is 5 days too long in Yellowknife in December?

      Hawaii (State of) Aug 14, 2016 at 4:15 AM

      Hi. My my mom and I will be going to Yellowknife in December hoping to see the northern lights. Initially, we are planning a 5 day trip to maximise our chance to see the lights but now I am having second thoughts if that 5 days is too long especially with -30 to -40 C weather. We will be renting the full winter outfit during our whole stay but I am worried that it won't still be enough to go out for a long period of time even with proper layering. What do you think? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.

    • Gyms/health clubs in Princeville

      Kauai Aug 7, 2016 at 7:36 PM

      Maybe I'm being a bit optimistic, but I plan on going to the gym during my Kauai vacation. Will be staying in a condo in Princeville. A google search turns up gyms in Kapaa, but none in Princeville. The nearby hotels require the purchase of a day pass to use their gyms, but it isn't worth the money ($50 - $250/day) considering all I want to do is use the gym. Does anyone know of any gyms in Princeville/Hanalei? Thank you!

    • First time visiting - to cruise or stay put? Help!

      Hawaii (State of) May 20, 2016 at 7:01 AM

      Hubby and me are planning our first trip sometime in Nov or Dec and are trying to decide what's better in terms of getting a good feel for the islands. Option 1 is a 7 day cruise on Pride of America (first time cruisers also), option 2 is picking 1 island and exploring in depth.

      A little background on us, we're in our 40's/early 50's and not big on a lot of physical activities such as hiking, surfing, biking, etc. We like doing sightseeing tours, cultural events, and hanging out at the beach/pool. A cruise sounded great until I realized how small the cabins are and considering hubby snores so bad that I don't think I'd get much sleep. The ship does have the single suites so that might be an option or we just pick one island.

      Question is Which one??? Oahu seems like the best pick as it doesn't seem like the other islands have enough of the type of activities we like to keep us active/interested for a whole week. And I really don't want to spend too much of my vacation on planes island hopping. Is it feasable to fly to say, Kona, for the day, do some sightseeing and be back to Oahu that night without being totally exhausted the next day? Help!! Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    • Dilemma for 7-night stay in Maui after Waikiki

      Maui Jan 4, 2016 at 5:09 AM

      Hi,

      I've done a fair bit of research on different areas and hotels for a 7-night stay in Maui (17-24 April). For now, the only decision I've been able to make is to spend the first 2 nights at the Travaasa Hana.

      I did also provisionally book The Mauian for the following 5 nights to stay in an OK property at a cheaper price, but looking back at the photos on Tripadvisor, I'm actually not sure of how nice the rooms are.

      So, back on the drawing board, I've narrowed my choice between Kaanapali and Wailea. I know they are very different, but both attractive for different reasons. Kaanapali offers cheaper accommodation and easy access to more things to do, but Wailea properties tend to be more luxurious and offer better opportunities to relax, away from the hustle and bustle.

      Mind that the 7 days in Maui will be after 6 nights in Honolulu/Waikiki.

      Looking at rooms at prices, I've set my eyes on the following properties:

      1) Westin Maui Resort & Spa (simple looking rooms and nice bathrooms, good 5th night free and free breakfast rate, adult only pool)

      2) The Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas (same reasons as above, nice reviews)

      3) Hotel Wailea (secluded, good value for money, but far from the beach)

      4) Andaz by Hyatt (fantastic design)

      Considering that it's not school holidays time, will Maui be fairly busy with families with kids? I was going to book either of the Westin properties, but I am now a bit weary about the scale of the developments, how busy they may be and the scarcity of opportunities to unwind and relax.

      I am looking forward to receiving some advice!

      Dec 30: hike Kalalau Trail for the 2 miles to Hanakapi'ai Beach (only). Note my wife is adverse to heavy sun exposure. Is this hike a bad idea on that account?

      Jan 1: 60 minute helicopter tour

      Jan 3: Kipu Ranch ATV tour

      The other days would be spent with the kids and/or be rain dates!
