Hawaii--On My List of Places to Visit


My sister-in-law has her 50th birthday all planned out:

She's heading to Hawaii.

So I've found a neat website where one can rent out places on Hawaii: Hawaii Beachfront Cottages. One three bedroom home can be rented for $200 per night. Keep in mind that some of the homes require a 30-day rental. Hawaii certainly isn't cheap, but heck, for the sunset below-- I'd stay 30 days myself!


Check out this four-bedroom house that sleeps eight: Big Island House--at $1,200 per night--four couples could share a vacation together with memories to last a lifetime.

The same site even has a blog about Hawaii: Hawaiian Beach Rental Blog.
Now all I have to do is write a couple of bestsellers so I can join my sis-in-law next year!

So...are you going to go, or are you just dreaming for the future?

Well, if one of the hubby's lottery tickets pays off-- I'm going!

Wanna come with?

Hi Karen. We just got back and the trip was not as expensive as you might think. We rented a beautiful little cottage across the street from the beach. And we had breakfast there every morning. We cooked dinner three nights and made picnic lunches to take with us on many of our day trips. Having a kitchen can save you a HUGE amount of money(even though the food on Hawaii is quite expensive). And as you noted, the beaches are so darned beautiful, you can have a lot of fun just hanging out most of the time. No need to spend a lot of money on helicopter tours - although kayaking for a day is highly recommended!

Edward, thanks for sharing. I'll be saving up for our trip-- after our cruise this fall.

So many vacations, so little money!

Hahaha well, when you go, can I hide in your suitcase as you travel? I'm really small, no one would notice I was there.....

Karen said...

Sure, what's one extra suitcase? :)

My wife and I spent our honeymoon on Kuai, twenty-five years ago. It was amazing, although it rained every one of the nine days we were there! Who cared, though - it was Hawaii!

Bob, my husband had a similar experience when he went to Hawaii during his high school years. Only one day of sunshine!
