Honua Kai Resort & Spa
Starting around Thanksgiving and lasting until mid May humpback whales visit Maui to give birth and mate. This is truly a magnificent sight to behold.
This is a lot of fun and not that hard to learn. Give it a try!
Warning: if you lock yourself out of the safe you will have to call Island Lock & Safe at 808-661-4033 8:30 am – 4:30 pm Mon-Fri with no weekend or emergency service available – please use caution. If you should lock the safe and can’t open it the lock company must be called either by you or after you check-out the maids will check the safe and then call the Locksmith with an additional fee from the locksmith and maid service billed to you.

Hop out of the water, dust off the sand and forget the snorkel gear. For a truly unique fish-eye view of the island’s underwater marine life, head over to the state-of the-art Maui Ocean Center. We visit the Ocean Center each visit to Maui. This is a great activity to visit on rainy days
“The beach is a fantastic place, but even if you’re an avid scuba diver or snorkeler, you probably won’t see the diversity of marine life that you can see during a visit to the Maui Ocean Center,” says General Manager Kate Zolezzi.
With more than 60 exhibits housing thousands of marine animals, you don’t have to get wet to see what’s going on under the sea. The latest addition to this marine wonderland is its Coral Reefs exhibit, which tells the story of coral in Hawaii. The interactive exhibit features coral images, spawning footage, interactive models and a special 125,000-year-old coral skeleton. The expansive center also includes the Maui Ocean Center Store where visitors can take their experience home with plush animals, postcards and books; as well as the open-air Reef Cafe and the ocean-view Seascape Ma‘alaea.

Tucked away in Wailuku Millyard, Sam Sato’s is a little gem with a long history on Maui. Founded in 1933, the first Sam Sato’s was at Camp 3 in Sprecklesville. Over the decades, it moved to Puunene, then Happy Valley—and since 1993 its latest incarnation has been at 1750 Wili Pa Loop
“My grandparents founded Sam Sato’s,” says Kirk Toma. “My parents, Charles and Lynne Toma, are still very much involved. My sister, Keri, helps out too. ”Basically, it’s a breakfast and lunch spot from7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and you can pick up Manju until 4 p.m.”
Themanju, or Japanese sweet rice cakes, are all baked in house, as are the turnovers —the latter with fruit flavors such as peach, apple, blueberry, coconut, and pineapple coconut. Different designs on the crust guide you to what’s inside. “Our dry noodles are really popular,” says Kirk. We cook them with bean sprouts, green onions and char siu. They go really well with our barbecue-beef sticks. Other noodle dishes include super dry with veggies along with saimin, won-ton mein and chow fun.” You may order take-out noodles in small, medium, large and extra large pans for parties at home.
Diners also love local plate lunches of hamburger steak, stew, spare ribs, beef tomato and yakitori. Sides include kimchee, and thickly-cut French fries with the uniquely Maui-style dip of mayonnaise and mustard. “The beef tomato at Sam Sato’s is out of this world,” says Mickey Helm of Wailuku.

Kaba Keycode Lock
Each of my renters gets a 6-digit random number when they get their Reservation Confirmation. I can generate this number one year in advance by a program located at the lock manufacturer’s website. This number only works from 4 PM on the day of check-in to 11 AM on the date of check-out and only on our Kaba lock.
To open the Kaba door lock simply punch in the 6-digit number and the door will open. Write this number down on a sheet of small paper and place it in your wallet/purse. You can easily reprogram the lock with your own 6-digit number and BOTH numbers will work during your stay.
Let’s actually do this now. Say your code number is 123456 then that’s what you punch in. If you mess up just keep punching numbers until the red light shines. You get 3 attempts before the lock goes into a time lock of 3 minutes and then you can try again.
You have a family code number that is easy to remember which is your birthday of 122565 (Dec 25, 1965) and wish to reprogram the lock. To do this first open the door and reprogram it while the door is open. Next type in the code number followed by the pound sign “#” and then your family code number:
And that’s it. You can reassign as many alternate numbers as you wish but only one is valid at a time.
