  1. Yay! My husband and I are moving to Mauii in the next few months. We are going there for a couple months to get feel for the Island and then permanantly moving there in the fall of,2022!

  2. I’m going to Maui with my family and this helped a lot tysm one question is it likely for the Valcano to explode? Because I’m scared of volcanoes lol

  3. Don't come here please, we're going through a drought. The mayor is telling locals to restrict water usage yet all the hotels on Maui are plentiful. I understand the economy but just go to Florida instead, thanks. ALSO, DON'T TOUCH THE SEA TURTLES AND STOP WEARING SUNSCREEN THAT KILLS OUT REEF.
    We, locals, are sick and tired of people thinking this is la la land. This is where people live, it has a lot of horrible history and America has yet to take responsibility for it. Inform yourself and respect the land and the people. DON'T BE A KAREN.

  4. Maui HAS NO WATER! Stop taking our resources! Don't come! If you want to come give back to our land and respect our rules here.

  5. I'm going on a vacation there really soon could you answer some questions about is there a lot of gas stations in and around Maui and is it a good idea to rent a motor scooter to do all my traveling thank you

  6. Holy cow! Another video that felt like a vacation! I love the aerial shots. Those are the best. Stay safe and aloha!

  7. So many beaches I've never seen so empty. Can't wait to get back once this madness is behind us. Mahalo for the video

  8. I dont really mind tourists but when they think they own Hawaii it makes me wanna punch them in the face, so if your coming here please respectful to the residents and the aina

  9. I’m heading over to Maui next week. So excited! 😆 Great and helpful video as always. Thanks for all the tips!

  10. Aww! Love this place! I went to Maui a few years ago before and I am going back this year in August. We didn't get to go last year because of the pandemic. But that's okay. We're going now. I am going to do all this stuff and more. I've been to some of the places you mentioned but some of the places I haven't been to. We will check those out as well. This year we will be taking my aunt and my dad's childhood friend with my mom and my dad and me. They've never been and they're really excited about it. I am too. I really want to spend some time with my aunt and everybody. My favorite thing to do in Maui is Whaler's Village. That place is so neat. I also like the Lahaina Cannery Mall. It was close to our resort the last time we were there. But we are staying in a condo at the El Dorado Resort. It's a VRBO. Hopefully that will be close to everything in Kaanapali. Well, thanks for sharing! Have a great day! Mahalo!

  11. I want to go to Hawaii in September cause that’s my birthday month but how is the weather in September? Do you guys have like rainy months cause I want the nice warm sun lol

  12. My sister lives in Maui and have rentals there. I find MaUI EXTREMELLY EXPENSIVE AND BORING, SORRY! TOO EACH ITS OWN.

  13. Do you have any referrals for a photographer (maybe freelance / inexpensive) to take photos for about an hour?

  14. Watched many of your videos before coming to Maui. You had so many great tips that it made our 10 day vacation a dream. We are now on Oahu and rewatching your tips as we really valued your perspective and tips. Watching a few tonight before heading out tomorrow. Cheers!

  15. I'll be in Maui on June with my husband. What worries me is that we don't drive so we'll end up using Uber. My brother told me that the signal isn't really good in there though. 🥲

    I really wanna experience Maui more than any other islands. I heard a lot of great things about it!
