Hawaiian Ohana Vacations

Family Surf Session
Family Surf Session

My family and I have been going to Kauai for years. This island offers a wonderful mix of Hawaiian culture, outdoor fun, great restaurants and relaxing beaches.  Some of our favorite spots include the charming town of Hanalei on the northern Napili coast.  This town is great for an afternoon visit!  You can spend a few hours boogie boarding at the Hanalei pier. Then get some shaved ice and admire the ocean views of the Napili coast. Take the family for a walk into town to do a little shopping and enjoy lunch at the iconic Tahiti Nui restaurant and bar. 


Another great day trip while on Kauai would be visiting and hiking the Waimea Canyon.  This is considered the Grand Canyon of the Pacific and it is easy to see why with the sweeping vistas and changing colors!  Stop in the town of Hanapepe to look through the art galleries and catch some live music if you are lucky.


Of course island hopping is another great way to experience Hawaii!  Many of my clients start on the island of Oahu to experience Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head and visit the Pearl Harbor Memorial.  It is an easy flight from Oahu to any of the other islands. Make a stop in Maui and enjoy its beautiful beaches, hiking and taking a drive along the road to Hana. Don’t miss the Big Island it’s full of adventure. You can explore the Volcanoes National Park, beaches and lava tubes!  Also don’t forget about the little guys, Molokai and Lanai.  There is so much to see and do on each of the islands you may need to come back for multiple return trips!


The islands of Hawaii are exceptionally beautiful and offer breathtaking views wherever you turn. There are plenty of places to visit and explore on each of the islands.  I remember a few years ago when I met my Mom there for an unexpected long weekend.  We had a friend picking me up at the airport and I mentioned that I didn’t expect to be back so soon and he just smiled and said, “Yes, Hawaii has a way of calling people back again and again… and again.”  Please let me know if Hawaii is calling you for a first time visit or a return adventure. I’m here to help plan the perfect Hawaiian adventure.

Beautiful Hawaii: Oahu
Kayla was knowledgeable about and responsive to all our queations in regards to planning our family trip to Oahu and Kauai. You can practically hear her smile over the phone, seems like someone who is nearly as excited for you to vacations as she would be if she herself were traveling. Will definitely use her again for future travels!

Trip of a lifetime
Our experience with Kayla Johnson was amazing!
We booked a trip to Florida with her over MEA in October. I had been looking for a VRBO as we were bringing 11 people to Florida. After spending endless hours searching (and wasting precious time) I met her at a networking event. I was thrilled to hear she could do all this leg work for me! From finding a house, booking air, lining up things to do, she was so knowledgable!
We ended up at the South Seas Resort in Captiva Island. What a memorable trip this was!
She sent us pictures, gave us ideas of fun things to do, helped us plan it from start to finish! Even checked on us while we were there! So attentive!
Thank you Kayla for all you did, it was truly the best family trip we have ever been on! This was a trip of a lifetime to the grandparents being able to spend quality time with their grandkids. We have used her again since on a trip to Vegas and will be a client for life!
