Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain, Community Manager

Aloha!! The time is fast approaching and I wanted to let my 'Rainers know I'll be unplugged for a bit.

My fiance and I are taking off for Hawaii on Thursday for 10 days and I couldn't be more excited or ready.  She's been but I haven't and I look forward to snorkeling, hiking, surfing and whatever else the islands have in store for us.  I want to feel that warm sand between my toes, be totally unreachable and just breath.  Ahhhh....Zen.

First stop is Oahu and then off to Maui.  If everything I've been hearing is true, I may not come back!  Hell, i can work from the beach!  If you have any excursion or restaurant recommendations, let me know.

So my Angels, if you try and reach me anytime after Wednesday I won't get back to you until after July 2nd.  I'll miss you! 

Malama pono!

Kerrie, have a wonderful vacation.  If you get a chance, go to The Big Island and enjoy the incredible lava beaches and volcanoes! I love Hawaii and you will definitely appreciate the entire package!

Kerrie~my hubby and I have been to Maui a few times, got married on Ulua Beach near Wailea at sunset. It was a PERFECT wedding! There is a day-trip for snorkeling and possible dolphin sighting/ swimming out of Lahaina, I believe. It takes you to Lanai?, the same island that Bill Gates "rented" to get married. You go on a catamaran (sp?) so COOL. (Mary Elizabeth mentioned it, sorry--well, now you have TWO who recommend it).

Upcountry, there is an incredible garden to visit with all kinds of tropical plants. Fabulous--can't recall the name, sorry.

We never made it up to the mountain, I guess you go very early in the AM and it can be really cold, then warms up later.

It is one of our favorite places on EARTH. Very expensive for the people who live there...most have more than one job from what I recall. So, TIP GENEROUSLY!!

Congrats on your engagement, too. If you need to know more about how to do a wedding package (easy/peasy), I have a great contact for a female minister and we incorporated many Hawaiin traditions into our ceremony...even had a harpist on the beach and it wasn't exhorbitantly expensive.

Don't miss the Old Lahaina Luau on Maui. Kind of corny, but all part of the experience, and this is the best of the islands. Drink a "Lava Flow". I also agree that you should get out on a boat trip (I like the one up the Napili Coast) and for easy snorkeling without a boat, try Airport Beach in Ka'anapali. We spend a lot of time on Maui as my parents have a home there. Have a wonderful time!

Hi Kerrie,

When do we get to see your Hawaii photos? I have been many places in the world but never to Hawaii. I want to go and cruise the islands. I think that would be so much fun so next year I am going to do it. It is on my bucket list. Plus my father-in-law who just passed was a Pearl Harbor Survivor so it will mean so much to me to see the Arizona. Luckily he was in a building on the base and not physically on the Arizona.

Post some Hawaii photos! Please. Do you  have a new photo?

I guess you are back home! I hope you had a great time and enjoyed the break. We went to the main island ones and I want to go and see more but it is way too far. Mexico is only 2 hs away from Houston and that is pretty much our any destination now because we don't really want to waste a day traveling somewhere else.

Kerrie - I hope Hawaii was all you imagined it to be.  I have made 4 trips to the islands, and each experience has been different from the other.  I absolutely love the place.  It's been awhile since I have returned.  I hope to do that this coming winter.

Hi Kerrie. Hope you two had fun. I was born and raised in Hawai'i. Just recently did the Legislature pass a law which allows for civil unions so if you two do get married on Maui in the future I wish you all the best !
