I’m considering grilling one night but have a studio. Are there grilling utensils (tongs, etc) available somewhere? Anything you wish you had packed? Toiletries in little bottles or big ones? With all the swimming I think we could run out of shampoo awfully fast, lol.
Yes, you check grilling utensils out for free at their community hall, the Pau Hana room. Personally, I pack as much toiletries as I think that I am going to use. I know how much shampoo and conditioner I will use and that is what I leave in the bottle and then usually just toss the bottle out before I come home. If you run out, there is a Walmart and Target 10 minutes up the road.

I am unsure about the utensils sorry! I just used the supplied toiletries as did another in my group whilst the two others brought their own from home - we were given two of everything and went through it by check out so i would suggest bringing your own or doing a target run - but for us it was fine.

Thanks! I think this could be a nice dinner one night!

Thanks! I will have to throw some shampoo in my bag. Don’t want to pay Hawaii prices when I have plenty I can bring from home.

We loved the ATV tour! it was fun but never felt dangerous and the scenery was amazing - we drove past many movie set pieces and even stopped at one from jurassic world. the tour had 3 stops where we got out and our guides gave us some history of the land which was really interesting and offered to take pictures of each party (including the hilarious hand puppet t-rex photo op). The one warning i have is it was extremely dusty - we wore safety goggles, masks/gators and still had dust all over our faces - our clothes looked like we had rolled around in cheeto dust by the end of the tour. There is an area to hose down after but i would bring a change of clothes if you plan on doing anything after and don't want dirt all through your rental car!
