    once was enough...for a wedding....ocean water was freezing cold..everything was uber expensive...

    we ended up leaving earlier than our original intended stay and going skiing at Tahoe

    I did like hiking up Kilauea though...and the Big Island was cool too

    you can have the rest

    We stayed at the Mauna Lani on the big island and loved everything about it.

    I've been a number of times, but never for a villa stay. WIMCO rents there, so you can check them out. Love Kauai the best.

    Never rented a villa but stayed in a condo on Kawaii for a week, then onto the big island and Turtle Bay. Loved it...spent two nights right on the beach in Honolulu - breathtaking views but way too crowded for us. Everything is/was very expensive but so is SBH in many respects. It's been many years since we were there - it takes so long to get there from the East Coast that we probably won't get back there.

    Went last year just before SBH. Crowded, Expensive, and nothing like SBH. Once was more than enough.

    Been a few times - so many other better options without the crowds of American tourists. If you think the cruise ship crowd is bad....

    There are nice spots and some great villas but hard to miss the hordes of tourists

    Here's a short story I published about Waikiki

    Done Maui too and that's no better IMHO
