Trip to Maui

Postby Kimba » Sat Jan 13, 2007 11:25 pm

My husband and I are going to MAUI next month! We've never been to any of the Hawaiian islands and are thrilled!

Please direct us to anthing MCM or tiki over there that we won't want to miss! :D

I am envious!! I have not been to Maui, but I have been to Oahu. Loved it! Whether or not you specifically find any MCM or Tiki, you'll most likely love Hawaii. Just don't get in a hurry for anything, because you will be the only one. The phrase "hang loose" has real meaning there!

I can't speak for Maui, but I did not see loads of commercial MCM on Oahu, but saw a few good examples of residential MCM and Tiki.

Anyway, I found myself much more captivated by Hawaii than I expected. I am jonesing to go back! Enjoy your trip!!

Been to Maui in May 2005. For MCM I strongly recommend the Napili Kai. Built in the 1960's, it's a nicely done authentically retro small scale polynesian resort mixed with touches of japanese such as shogi screens. My first view of the beach after dark from the lobby is unforgettable. Their best rooms for style and comfort are the original facing pool and beachfront.

My wife, kid, and me did the typical tourist stuff and greatly enjoyed it: luau, snorkeling, aquarium, Paia, Lahaina, sunrise atop the mountain, Maui Downhill, rainforest hikes, submarine ride. While I planned much of it, my favorites were the unscripted surprises such as the nearly naked bearded old hippie local running through a meadow near the Seven Pools or getting caught in the rain in the pineapple winery. The only thing I would have done differently is the tour van to Hana was a rattlebox and the loudspeaker just sounded likes lots of garbled noise for 12 hours. For bargains I recommend the open market for fresh fruit, local crafts and Hawaiian shirts and the chain drug store for chocolate covered macadamia nuts and other souveneers both off the main highway in Lahaina.

Send me a message if you would like more info.

The older, traditinal luau is the Old Lahania Luau.
It is located on the coast in a nice location, and occurs at approx 5 pm.

I have now sat through two presentations, although I was only paying attention at the later. The basic premise is that the cost of travel will increase at approx 7% every year.

For 2006, the hotel cost on Oahu actually decreased slightly, so it is not necessarily accurate.

Also, I am not sure how it works to travel during the high demand season - over New Years for example.

However, after just 15 years it would be paid off, and what a positon to be in.

Thank you for confirming the fact that we don't want a timeshare!

Actually, my DH is interested in opening a business there. He's still looking into the possibility. We're not short on offers from people to manage it for us! LOL!
