With a lengthy list of shopping to get done, a handful of festive parties, and all the special moments in between, the holiday season can be a bit chaotic. If you are looking for a relaxing escape to unwind from all that bustle, a Hawaii vacation getaway might just do the trick! And if you don’t want to miss out on those precious memories with the little ones in your life, make your Hawaii vacation unforgettable and bring the grandkids along.
What is the best way to put together a stress-free Maui family vacation that includes you and the grandchildren? Check out these tips!
Plan the trip together.
Whether you are traveling with a baby, young kids, or teens, be sure to include all those involved in the planning process. Maui is home to a plethora of activities, so including the keiki (children) is a soundproof way to set clear expectations and to keep everyone happy! It can also help you get a better idea of what adventures you will be able to handle without additional adult support.
You will also want to ensure that there is more than enough space for all those in your party. With 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom condo options available, our beachfront vacation community offers an ideal launching pad for families of all sizes. The spacious layouts and amenities also make your stay feel like a home away from home, which can ultimately help the younger parts of your party acclimate to a change of scenery.
Get the rundown from the parents prior to departure.
If you are traveling with your grandkids solo (without their parents), be sure to have a detailed discussion with them to get up to speed on any allergies and preferences. Of course, you are sure to know your grandchildren but knowing what family rules there are, their bedtime rituals look like as well as what food and drinks they prefer can help you to best navigate your time with them! You should also walk through the final itinerary with the parents to get any insight they might have in making the trip go as smooth as possible.
Explore a new place together.
From playing on the white sandy beaches to wandering the lush landscapes, Maui is full of adventures that you can discover together! This new destination makes for great conversation starters amongst the family and can also create the opportunity for tremendous bonding experiences. From local eats to island events, the exploration possibilities are seemingly endless!
Whether you are traveling with family for the first time or you are a seasoned expert, we hope to see you and yours enjoying all that Maui has to offer. Mahalo!
