I just bit the bullet and booked a glamping vacation in Maui. What?!
It's been about 4 years since this body has seen a real sunbeam. We didn't get very many beach opportunities in Wisconsin and now that we live in the PNW, we might as well turn into vampires.
So, this year Jim and I said WE HAVE TO GET LEGIT SUN. And since so many Seattlelites go to Hawaii for vacation, we decided to jump on the bandwagon. It's not that expensive and you're guaranteed sunlight.
But we had a problem. We did everything so late (vacation request, flights, etc.) that we were going to spend $500 a night for a nice hotel or $200 for a no-tell motel or a shady airbnb where you can hang out in some surfer's room. NO spanks.
Then we came across Camp Olawalu.
This is the best I could find to glamping. I wasn't looking for it but I wanted more than a yurt or a VW bus. And I didn't think tent camping sounded relaxing. After all, I do want to work less on this vacation.
We just came across another problem -- all the tentalows were RESERVED. OY!!!
Well, being the persistent reporter I am, I called every week and asked if we could be on the waiting list. Come to find out, they were building new tentalows this year, too. So... after several weeks of calling, we finally got approved!
You get your own sink and shower plus two twin beds that can make a king.
Glamping here we come! Stay tuned!
