We understand that not everyone gets to live in paradise. Your hometown is a place you love, but you don’t wake up to sunshine and ocean breezes every morning of your life, and that’s ok; It just makes you appreciate the beauty of our island even more, especially when you choose to spend your 2019 Thanksgiving here in Maui sipping Mai Tais and avoiding cranky relatives who just add to the tension and stress of a holiday that is supposed to be dedicated to thankfulness. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start planning your 2019 getaway for a Maui Thanksgiving, and this guide will help!
The sound of silence, punctuated by the splash of ocean waves against the beach, is all the noise you will hear on your first Maui Thanksgiving. Unlike at home, you won’t need to wake up early and rush to start the first of millions of chores. In Maui you can pull the pillow over your head and get in a few more minutes of sleep or fix a cup of coffee to enjoy on the patio. As the sounds of the ocean grows louder, your children and your spouse may just find their way out to visit you in your favorite spot. Quiet conversations, happy chatter, and more moments of silence are definitely something you will be thankful for.
Choices are something to be thankful for as well, and when you stay with us, your meal choices are plentiful! Our fully equipped kitchens allow you to create a feast that compares to the one you might have made at home. Purchase all the ingredients you need at the local Safeway, or, if cooking is not your idea of fun, you can still go to Safeway and purchase a fully prepared Thanksgiving dinner instead! Offering everything from bread to side dishes and turkey to dessert, clean-up is easy; refrigerate the leftovers and toss the containers! And finally, many of the resorts where our rental properties are located will offer Thanksgiving feasts, but if you really want to celebrate island style, check out the special holiday luaus that can be found throughout the island; the Royal Lahaina and Grand Wailea luaus are two of our favorite examples!
Now that the excitement of your day is drawing to a close, it’s time to end it as it began, with the sounds of the ocean. Let the moon light your way across the sand as you continue the morning’s conversations, only this time with the sand between your toes. And before you get sad about the end of another holiday, just remember that the best part of your day is about to happen when you return to the comfort and serenity of one of our Quam Properties Thanksgiving escapes—reserve yours today!
As summer draws closer, it’s time to start thinking about what you want to do for the holidays: Memorial Day, Labor Day, and our personal favorite, Independence Day. Symbolizing all that is wonderful about our country, 4th of July is all about ice cream, fireworks, and that wonderful little thing called freedom, and when you spend your long weekend with us (July 4th is on a Thursday this year, so why not get away for four days or more and really whoop it up?), your tropical escape will really make you proud to be an American. Follow this guide and prepare for the party of the decade with a Maui 4th of July!
Whether you want to make it yourself in the fully equipped kitchen of your Quam Properties getaway or simply want to be comfortably served at the restaurant of your choice, an all-American breakfast is the perfect way to start the celebration. Slappy Cakes, found at 3350 Lower Honoapiilani Road #701 in Lahaina, offers an ever-changing menu of special batters for special occasions. Does that include the opportunity to make your own red, white, and blue ones? You’ll just have to stop by and see for yourself!
Birthdays are fun to shop for, even if it’s an entire country you’re shopping for, and the July 4th Weekend Sale at the Outlets of Maui, 900 Front Street in Lahaina, allows you to save some money as you shop for gifts, souvenirs, or that sweet little something you never knew you needed until you saw it in the window! The sale lasts all four days of the long weekend, leaving you plenty of time to chill at the beach!
Starting at 10 AM on the Maui 4th of July and lasting late into the night, the entire day is set aside for celebrating, featuring more shopping, live entertainment, delicious food, and after the sun has set, a fantastic fireworks finale that can be viewed from anywhere in town—including the balcony of your Hawaii holiday escape, should yours happen to be facing the correct way!
This year, the only thing better than the “birthday party” Maui throws for our country is being able to stay in one of our Quam Properties luxury vacation rentals! Rent yours today and celebrate your freedom with class and style in spaces designed to not just meet today’s traveler’s needs, but to exceed them in ways you never dreamed possible!
