FOR PLAN­NING A SIM­I­LAR EX­PE­RI­ENCE:

Automobile - - Automobile Plus -

RULE 1 Book a ho­tel you know the fam­ily will love even when you’re not there. We went for the An­daz Maui at Wailea Re­sort, know­ing the fam­ily would be happy en­joy­ing the ma­halo beach vibes.

RULE 2 Do a lot of re­search. Gentry of­fered to take us on a guided tour of the is­land, but usu­ally he’ll sim­ply tell you where to go and how long it will take. The in­ter­net is your pal and kept us away from the tor­tur­ously slow Road to Hana. For the right wheels, book early. The prices on Turo and DriveShare vary, but ex­pect to pay a few hun­dred dol­lars per day for a whip like the Lo­tus and up to a thou­sand-plus for an ex­otic, in­sur­ance in­cluded.

RULE 3 When all else fails, ask the ho­tel concierge, as they can set up al­most any­thing and ev­ery­thing for you, in­clud­ing guided tours. That’s what we did at the Four Sea­sons Re­sort Lanai; an hour later and a few hun­dred dol­lars lighter, we were bomb­ing red-dirt back roads in a Po­laris RZR side-by-side.
