School is out and long summer days are right around the corner! Family vacation season is almost here and in Hawaii, visitors and residents alike are already enjoying the warm Hawaiian sunshine and the cool ocean water. Maui has a little bit of something for everyone, even those with toddlers in tow. So if you are traveling with a young family and don’t want to miss out on all the fun, we have a few travel tips for you to keep in mind!
Picking the Right Place to Stay
Let’s face it, hotels do not create the most ideal situation for a traveling family with kids running amuck. The perfect place to stay in Maui comes outfitted with a fully equipped kitchen, in-unit washer and dryer, and plenty of space for the keiki (kids) to work out their energy. Thankfully, West Maui lodging at Kahana Village has pretty much everything you could need right down to the beach gear.
Easily sterilize baby bottles along with making the favorite meals of the resident picky eater in this home away from home. And getting messy outdoors is no problem with the convenience of a washer and dryer right there with you!
Keep Packing Simple
It is almost reflex to squeeze just about everything you think your family could need into a suitcase but to keep your trip as relaxed and laid back as possible, we suggest you keep it simple. Kahana Village is conveniently located in West Maui where you can easily pop over to the nearby store to get the bulky baby and toddler necessities like diapers and finger foods.
A part of our resort-like amenities, our welcome kit greets guests with daily necessities like basic toiletries and even laundry products, so you can even pack light on clothes and other accessories!
You made the arrangements and the bags are zipped, now all you have to do is get here! With a little strategy, flying here with kids can be a relaxing experience. Pack snacks and easy entertainment in your carry-on luggage, this keeps tantrums to a minimum and makes sitting still a little more bearable for all parties. And while seeing young children with their own roller suitcases is extremely cute, keeping their stuff with your stuff leaves one less thing for you to keep track of!
The list can go on and on but really, it is all about the experience. Traveling, like parenting, is constantly a learning experience and we would love to hear your family vacation tips! Stop by before heading out to your next Maui adventure or contact us today.
