Where to Stay on Maui | Ka’anapali VS Wailea –


  1. I kinda low key just wanna know what y’all do for income…job. Obviously you can’t live there and seem to be vacationing the entire time without funds rolling in. Just curious!

  2. I feel like I willingly removed myself from paradise specifically to place myself into the crab bucket. Without actually being a crab. Needless to say, I'm both literally and metaphorically chewed up. The moral of the story is to never leave.

  3. I love your videos, they are so informative. I wanted to know, how do you know where it’s okay to fly a drone? I will be visiting Oahu and want to make sure to follow the rules when flying my drone .

  4. Thanks for the videos Erica & Jordan (& Henry too!). I got so many great tips from you for our recent trip to Maui. My husband and I are now planning on visiting Oahu for 4 weeks in April. I have read that Honolulu and Waikiki are experiencing a lot of homelessness and crime due to COVID. Can you say whether you felt unsafe there because of this? We thought Honolulu/Waikiki would be the most convenient but perhaps the North Shore could be safer. Are there any specific neighborhoods of Waikiki that you enjoy the most that have a good balance of restaurants/things to do but not too crowded? Any tips are appreciated! Mahalo!!!

  5. Tried to follow what you guys did on NorthShore just 3 days ago and have an amazing time. Uber-cool when we came across you at Waikiki earlier today. Thanks guys! Keep up with the good work!

  6. Thanks for your videos, unlike a lot of Hawaii videos no one gives location info as how to get there, and you do, thanks.

  7. How likely are you to see sea turtles on Oahu? Also where are the best spots to see them/snorkel with them?🐢
    Love your vids!♥️

  8. Aloha everyone! I was blessed to live on Oahu for 6 years. Had wonderful Polynesian male friends gentlemen I used to be serenaded by one Samoan one Tahitian and one Hawaiian great memories and great times there aloha
