We are Pam and Bob Platz, owners of Lahaina Shores unit 214. We live in Lake Elmo, MN with our dog
Arthur, and two cats, Pancake and Patches. We fell in love with Maui when we visited for the first time in
1999 on our honeymoon.
In 2005, we chose to buy a condo in Lahaina, “Land of the Sun”, to get away from the long winters
endured by many Minnesotans. After visiting year after year since, we haven't regretted it for a moment.
Some of our favorite things to do in Maui are:
The Road to Hana: This trip is not for everyone but we’ve done it FIVE times!! It is a day long drive to
the east side of the island filled with fabulous waterfalls and breathtaking views of the tropical side of the
island. The road literally hugs the side of the mountain and speeds rarely reach more than 20mph for
the majority of the drive.
Snorkeling: Black rock at the far end of Kaanapali beach-free! Trips to Molokini Crater and Turtle
Town– offered at a wide range of prices from the inexpensive yet enjoyable tour by Frogman to the
large luxurious catamaran tours offered by Trilogy.
Dinner Cruise: Our absolute favorite activity is the sunset dinner boat cruise out of Lahaina Harbor run
by the Pacific Whale Foundation.
Horseback Riding: We had a great time riding with the cowboys from the Mendes Ranch. The new
ranch just outside Lahaina has also been highly recommended, although we have not yet had the
opportunity to try them out.
Deep Sea Fishing: Check out the docks in the harbor to see what is biting! For some serious fishing,
check out Extreme Sportsfishing with Capt. Fuzzy.
Luau: Old Lahaina Luau is the best! It is rumored to be the best luau in all of Hawaii, book early.
These are just a few of our personal favorites! Of course there is always Haleakala Crater, the Maui
Winery and much, much more! Hope you have a great time on Maui!
