This is my first attempt at using a high-end consumer video camera, first attempt at using editing and publishing software.  So be easy on me.  I had very little time to put this together.

Made it to Niihau today. TR after we get back. All I can say now is it was the most magical and surreal experience I have ever had. I will be doing this many times again...next time, overnight.
How far in advance did you book?  I called a month in advance, and they were booked solid until about a week after our departure.

Also, are overnights offered?

Got the book "Escape to Molokai" for my kiddo (we were talking about tzaraas vs. leprosy).  I read it, too, found it really interesting.  Putting a mule trip down to Kalaupapa on my bucket list.

I was gonna say that this sounds like an awfully long time on Molokai, but then I clicked the link... Wow.

You rented the entire place? How much was it?

This will be a different kind of trip than we've taken before. We have planned absolutely nothing. If we happen to do it great if not no big deal. I'll be happy hanging at the house walking down to the beach and driving around the island and checking things out. We are traveling with our five and seven-year-old children. They are actually looking forward to a more relaxed Hawaiian vacation than what we usually do.

Whelp.

Serious question - if you're not planning on doing anything, can't you find a similar house to this, way closer and way cheaper? Why schlep all the way to Hawaii for that?

Didn't really say we weren't going to do anything. Just not planning anything this time.

Not with the kids of their age.
