We are going to HHI for the first time in a couple of weeks and even though we're not DVC owners (yet) I was hoping to get a few questions answered here. We have a 1-bdr and I was wondering what we should take or pick up from the grocery store that we might otherwise forget (like salt & pepper). Also, I understand from the DVC website that we will have a VCR but are there tape rentals at the resort? Also, is there a fireplace and if so is it gas or do we need to take firewood? Is there any area outside for grilling somewhere and if so do we need charcoal or is it gas? We plan on hanging out mostly at the resort but I would like to do a "water excursion". Are the kayaks suitable for non-athletes who are also getting close to the top of the hill? Any favorites we should look into? We love nature in general and thought we could also do some birding.
