Travel Tip for Military Families

It is our goal to assit you with valuable travel tips to make your travel easier and help you save money along the way.  

We recently came across  This is a great website that assists Military Service Men and Women get cheaper flights by negotiating with the Airlines for you.

On their blog we found an article called “Tips For An Inexpensive Family Vacation.”  Besides taking advantage of military discounts for airline tickets they offered some other useful tips.

Here are two we couldn’t agree more with:

“By staying in a vacation rental that features a kitchen, the family saves money on food and beverages.  This is also a time-saver when the family wants to spend less time waiting for a table and more time enjoying themselves at local attraction.”
“Nearby mountains, beaches, and parks are perfect ways to have fun without spending much money.  Some museums and other attractions have free admission days or offer no-charge admission to children.”

Service of Aloha Employee Recognition

Jere Rivera Front Desk Agent at Kaanapali AliiWe are honored to recognize Jere Rivera at our Front Desk for her service of Aloha.   Jere has been at Kaanapali Alii for 9 years and continually provides exceptional service to our guests.

We asked Jere what she enjoyed about her job and she had this to say:  “My job is a pleasure because of our close-knit staff and the way we all work together to makes guests happy.  It’s fun to be at the front desk and see how guests become more and more relaxed as each day goes by!  Kaanapali Alii is unique in many ways.  Our front desk is open 24 hours which is not true for many vacation rentals.   For example, we’re here to assist with late night arrivals.   Many guests stay seven days or more so I hear about how much they appreciate the spaciousness of their unit as well as the kitchens and oceanfront BBQ grills.   Like everyone on staff here, I love to see the familiar faces of return guests.   So be sure to look for me because I want to get to know you and make sure everything is perfect about your stay!”


Guest Review From TripAdvisor

Visitor from Lenexa, KS

“Paradise Found”

We planned a family trip to Maui to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary (3 years early!).  We thought it would be a trip of a lifetime and it was, but we are already thinking about when we can return.  We chose the Kaanapali Alii since two 2-bdrm, 2 bath condos met our family’s needs.  It was fabulous!  The rooms were well decorated and very beautiful.  The mountain view was breathtaking especially when the beautiful rainbow appeared in our window, without any rain!  We loved the gorgeous beaches and pools.  One of the highlights of our trip was grilling out on the grills provided by the Alii.  We have told our friends about this beautiful place.  We would choose the Alii again.
