Mommy Needs A Mai Tai



Travel tips, itineraries,
and kid-friendly travel guides
to experience Hawaii with the whole family.



I help you navigate Hawaii with kids
(without losing your mind).

Eight years ago, my husband and I ditched the daily grind and made a home on the island of Maui. Paradise isn’t always easy, but our kids go without shoes most days, and we like it that way. Our goal is to show them a life filled with nature, adventure, and the kind of aloha spirit that lives forever in their bones.

Discover what island is best for your family, where to stay, what to do, and how to be the kind of tourist that keeps locals from shaking their heads. We keep it real around here, with many mistakes and laughter along the way.

This isn’t just a vacation for your kids. I help you plan the kind of experience that also fills your cup.
