Hey Fellow TA's...... Me and my DH (in our 40's) and two teenage sons are coming to Hawaii 6-1 through 6-12. We are staying in Oahu the 1st-4th and arrive in Maui on 6/5 in the afternoon...I have been to Oahu before and I have that dialed in however, Maui is new for me.... I have been reading the forums and I appreciate all the feedback from others... We are really doing a lot in Oahu and I wanted to relax a bit in Maui...
We have a car rental booked and I know to have DH get car while kids and I get bags.... We get in at 2:00pm. Stopping at Costco/Grocery store (got my Safeway card) for a few definitely needed items.... Water, kona coffee, wine, and snacks..
Staying at Kapaula Villas in a Gold Room Ocean view (thank god we paid the extra for gold). Plan on getting the law of the land on Wednesday do dinner at Pineapple Grill and be certain to try the pineapple upside-down cake.
Thursday.... explore the resort and beach and if needed make additional grocery list for food... The Ritz is doing a wine food thing so I thought we would check that out.... can't seem to find info on it though. :( Maybe we will be Ritz crashers! LOL
Friday.....drink loads of Kona coffee and chill with my kids... maybe a little drive to a close beach? Friday night Dad and Mom are going on a date to see Warren at the magic show.... already booked did the add on for cocktail's and appetizer.
Saturday..... wanted to do surf lessons for the kids however my older son is a lifeguard this year and isn't really interested but I think a trip to Lahaina for some walking sightseeing and shaved ice at Ululani's.... who would you all use for surf lessons in town for two teenagers just incase?
Sunday.....doing the "Road to Hana" with Valley Isle Excursions... requesting Charlie/Chuck".
Monday.... Massive amounts of Kona Coffee and sun, water, chilling relax time.. do some laundry and start a bit of repacking so we aren't in a rush on Wednesday...
Tuesday last full day in Maui..... Booked the Old Lahaina Luau. I am a bit worried about this as I booked through Vaitor and it isn't confirmed yet they say 48 hours... but I am thinking positive incase of issues what is the next best Luau? I really want my kids to experience one.
Wednesday.... one or two last cups of Kona on the balcony... before heading to the airport... how much drive time should we give ourselves from Kapaula to the airport? What have we missed or should we add to this? I appreciate any and all suggestions.
