18 Nights in Hawaii - How many Nights on Each Island?

Jump to last reply

We have air award tickets into Maui and out of Hilo, Hawaii in February.
The total number of nights on the Islands will be 18.
We begin in Maui -
Fly to Kauai then
Fly to the Big Island from which we will fly home from Hilo. (Inter Island flights are NOT booked)
My research shows that to rent a car for 4,5,or 6 nights costs the same (nearly) as to rent
for a week. (Also condo rentals want a week for the best rate.) So my thoughts were:
Maui - 7 nights
Kauai - 7 nights
B Island - 4 nights
However, I am beginning to question this plan because the Big Island is, well, BIG.

Background: in 1988 we were on Ohau for 3 nights and Maui for 4 nights.
I KNOW that I want 7 nights on Kauai for sure since we have not been there.

Should I take some nights from Maui and add to Big Island? In 1988 we had 3 daughters with us
aged 19, 16, 10. On that trip we did drive the road to Hana, (marvelous)! but did not do much else.
Seems to me that the best two Islands are Maui and Kauai.
I need your help and opinions to get the right "feel" for this trip before I book Condos!

ALSO: What is the best Condo location for Maui? West coast just north of Kaanapali , South coast near Kilei, or the Lahaina area?
Condo budget is $200 night. (Would like to get ocean view, on the beach for that)?? We like to tour, not too much time in the water, and just relax. We are Seniors.
Thank you travelers!
