Kealakekua Bay & Place of Refuge

Waikiki Starlight Lu‘au

It’s Not Just a Guidebook, It’s a Love Affair

Welcome to our website. Our full-time job is pretty unusual. We hike the trails, ride the boats, eat in the restaurants, explore the reefs, and do the things we write about—and we do it all anonymously. No sifting through endless online reviews of a company, trying to form a consensus here. We do it all and compare them all to each other. We also explore every nook and cranny of the islands, looking for the coolest places to show you. Our method gives us the ability to tell it like it is in a way no one else can. We put in many long hours, and doing all these activities is a burdensome grind. But we do it for you, only for you. (Feel free to gag at this point.) Although we’ve just met, I promise that you will come to think of us as your trusted friends in the islands.

What Readers Have to Say

“We purchased “Hawaii The Big Island Revealed” before we left and used it to plan our trip…At three of the B&Bs, there was a copy of the book available and some of the first words from the innkeepers were “Take a look at that book as it is really good.” We of course had brought ours with us and used it every day. Your guidebook was right on the mark in everything from roads and sights to activities and restaurants (I’m sitting here right now wishing I had a malasada from Tex Drive-In.) Thank you for helping us have a fantastic vacation!”
