MAUI FAVORITESWe've compiled our favorite things to do and eat in Maui.



We wish we had more time in Maui, we had three and a half days and it wasn't enough! We suggest more days than what we did to get maximum exploration and relaxation.

We scored a deal with my travel agent discount to stay at the Grand Wailea. If anyone is interested in becoming a travel agent, I highly suggest doing it before you go to Hawaii to save on travel, mainly hotels {contact Jeff or I for information}. We were upgraded to the concierge floor, no charge, with free breakfast and free cocktail hour with appetizers. This is by far the nicest resort we have ever stayed in. Best food, drinks, pools, activities, we could go on for days about the Grand Wailea.


Getting to Maui is quite easy, renting a car is a little pricey so make sure you really need one before you do so. If you are taking a cab vs. the shuttle to your resort most of the time the cab will be cheaper because the shuttle is around $30 per person. Grand Wailea has a car rental facility within the resort so we rented a car for the day to do the Sunrise and Road to Hana. It is also pricey to park there overnight and were lucky enough to have friends that live there to take us to and from the airport. If you do have to rent a car, use Priceline, it will get you the best deal possible.


You will see a lot of fields with beautiful plants that are for sugar canes. We were lucky enough to see one of the fires burning at night when they burn the sugar cane plants. It is very unique to see how they contain the fires in one area. Maui is the only island that has sugar cane fields left with a manufacturing plant.


Car Charger, Warm Clothes, Rain Gear {these are the things we wish we would have brought other than the normal beach/hike packing}
