Traveling with little ones can be a little overwhelming, even if you’re just in the car for a couple of hours, let alone flying across the ocean to Maui. We understand the packing nightmare and endless questions of what you should pack vs. leave at home. There are even items you might think you need to bring when staying in a vacation rental that you can actually get on-island quite affordably. Packing less makes for a smoother trip all-around and can definitely lessen the headache pre, during and post vacation.
We’ve teamed up with some partners to offer rentals at discounted prices for our guests. There are other things beyond baby items, as well, that will help with your packing and overall vacation experience – snorkel equipment, golf clubs, rental cars and grocery delivery service, to name a few.
When it comes to baby items, we’ve got you covered! You can leave the big items at home such as cribs, pack and plays, high chairs/booster chairs, car seats and even strollers if you can get around the airport without one. Or, just bring the umbrella stroller and use a bigger one once you get on site. We even have a great partner for childcare! Below is our recommended list of companies that provide baby, children and mother items.
