    • Visiting Kona for Ironman Oct 2017

      Kailua-Kona Jan 8, 2017 at 1:39 AM

      We live in Perth W.Australia and plan to visit Kona for the Ironman in October (as spectator only) and plan to be there for 2-3 weeks. We regularly spectate at 70.3s and full Ironmans in Australia/Asia, great to watch.

      Can anyone please suggest/recommend good location to stay (and possible condos/hotels/airB&B) within easy reach of start and transitions.

      Many thanks. Penny

      Can anyone tell me about water temps in Kona/Kohala area during mid-April? Is it warm enough for swimming and snorkeling?

      Hotel, activities, surfing recommendations?

      Maui Jan 2, 2017 at 4:13 PM

      Hi everyone,

      It's been a while since I've written. Well it's time for another trip. I'm hoping to go to Maui to experience Hawaii for the first time with my husband

      I don't know much about Hawaii. Just know they have great coffee and a great place to learn to surf.

      Does anyone know of a great hotel near the waters with a nice beach that's also near activities like surfing, snorkelling, hiking, kayaking? We like the adventure type of vacations.

      Hopefully to get some ideas and not break the bank.


    • Getting married!

      by tileaf Online Now Nov 21, 2007 at 11:36 AM

      So I'm planning my wedding to take place next July- on a Monday. I was trying to ween away from the more commercial side of the island, we don't really enjoy the "hustle and bustle" of waikiki or honolulu. There will be about 50 of us and I'm hoping to find a nice beach near the area we're staying. A majority of us will be staying near Kapolei or Barber's Point. Any suggestions of a nice beach in that area or any restaurants that can accommodate a party of our size?

    • The low down on Makaha

      by snope11 Online Now Feb 11, 2006 at 7:26 PM

      My boyfriend and I want to stay somewhere on Oahu away from Honolulu. I've seen some vacation rental listings for Makaha that seem like great deals, and the pictures of the beach looks gorgeous. However, I've heard that it not so safe or clean on the streets. I know it's off the beaten touristy path, which is definitely what I'm looking for. But I'd love to get the low down on what Makaha is really like and if it is a good place to stay at for a few nights.

      If anyone can give their advice on this area, I'd appreciate it!

    • Weather in Makaha and Waialae beach

      by H&M Online Now Aug 10, 2004 at 10:45 AM

      My fiance and I are planning to get married in Hawaii next June. Our first plan was to have our wedding on a beach in South Maui because of the dry climate. After doing some researches on different beaches on different islands, I kind of like the Waialae beach park in Oahu because it is arounded by a lot of palm trees. I love palm trees! We are thinking to get married in Oahu instead of Maui. However, we are worried about the weather in North Oahu? (is Waialae beach on west or north side of Oahu?). Can some give us advice? Thanks in advance.
