QUESTION: Hawaiian Vacation For Family of 8?
How much would be a hawaiian vacation for a family of 8 for approximately 10 days?
  • Check out for vacation packages.Took my honeymoon this summer on Big Island- Couldn't believe how cheap it was on priceline (some packages were $800pp, including airfare, car and 2 bedroom condo for 10 days). I even went to the air site, hotel site and car site to compare the prices of buying them separately, and it really was about $300 cheaper to get directly from priceline. The only think is you're looking for accommodations for 8 people- Those vacation packages charge per person. For you I'd recommend looking at vacation rental homes. Before we settled on priceline, I'd seen a LOT of 3,4,5 bedroom houses for rent in the neighborhood of $800 to $2000/ week (depending on location/ amenities). These places can accommodate a large family, and many of them have pools and/or ocean view. I cannot stress enough the benefit of renting a condo/home versus getting a hotel. The kitchen facilities are worth it so you can cook your own meals. A word of warning, HI is VERY expensive. Gas, equipment rentals, attractions, etc.. Their grocery store prices are also absurd ($8 for butter, $6 for a dozen eggs, $6 -7 for milk etc...) because most everything in their stores comes from the US mainland. Forget about the restaurants, think $70 lunch for 2, and $100 dinners for 2. Imagine lunches and dinners for 8!!! Given the prices, I consider cooking facilities an essential in HI. Most hotels and condos also charge extra for air conditioning. They will BS you and tell you a/c is not essential because of 'trade winds', and that is BS. It was hot, muggy and uncomfortable even WITH our condo's A/C on, which would not go lower than 74 degrees. They also charge large cleaning fees. The biggest killer for you is going to be the airfare for 8 people- it will be more than hotel/rental home and possibly even food combined. Dunno where you live, but it is very expensive to fly to HI, even from Los Angeles (the closest airport to HI), its around 500 bucks per person. Good luck! edit: Summer is their off season, which could be why we found such cheap vacation packages on priceline. We did visit Kauai'i in December 2 years ago. December prices were only slightly more (not enough to go off season again, IMHO), and the weather was not much more comfortable.

  • Wow. Expensive in a word. Let's figure at least 100 a person a day for food/activities/sleeping places/etc. That's 8000 bucks to just be here. Flights from US can be 700 or more from California. 700 x 8 = 5600. If you can drop 14,000 bucks, you may be in business.

  • A lot. Hawaii is an expensive place to go. Go in the off season which I imagine would be Summer and rent a condo instead of a hotel room because it will have a kitchen so you can cook meals instead of going out to restaurants which end ups being way more expensive.
