  1. I’m planning on going to Maui next spring. And since I booked I’ve been obsessed with planning that I’ve been binge watching videos on anything Maui. I have to say out of all the videos I’ve watched, your video is packed with such great advice ☺️ Great tips! Thanks for sharing!! ☺️☺️

  2. Aloha & Outstanding presentation! I'm heading there in a few months/weeks. And staying around Kihei. I've been to the Big Island and Oahu about 18 years ago, but not Maui. Kim this was extremely helpful information. Your energy was what I remembered of the "Hawaiian spirit". Again, much appreciated & Mahalo. P.S. Haleakala at sunrise or sunset?

  3. You are obviously not from here. Why are you recommending people even come here right now! No open restaurants, most places closed, and lots of closed shops. Also, it costs $200 A DAY for a rental car. I have seen people even renting u-hauls because they couldn't get a car. Right now is NOT THE TIME to be encouraging people to come here. The beaches are so full of people, and what restaurants are open often run out of food after waiting in line for 2 hours.

  4. Even if I come from a stunning Island in the French West Indies (Martinique), your video makes me want to visit Maui. The sceneries are so fantastic! The sunset from the top of this mountain is incredible! I hope that in the future I will have the opportunity to go there. The whole thing makes me dream. Thanks a lot for this beautiful postal card.
