School of Rock Staying home with the kids has a distinct soundtrack: crying, toys banging, dog barking, phone ringing – a cringeworthy symphony that makes you want to sing out Calgon, take me away! Except it’s 2008, and who uses Calgon anymore?

Instead, you need Keiki Crescendo, a family music school where your children can beat sticks and drums, sing and shout, and let’s face it, spaz out to their hearts’ content. Owned by music teacher Claudia McDowell, this community learning space cultivates your child’s natural musical ability, whether a baby, toddler, or independent... Read more »

Animal Cookies There’s a reason your dog always begs at the table. Whatever you’re eating tastes like Fancy Feast compared to his Purina Chow.

Instead of feeding him your leftovers, offer one of the treats made just for dogs with all natural, vet-approved ingredients from Pet Power Hawai‘i.

Homebaked in Kailua by founder Taryn Matsuda, the crunchy, cookie-like treats come in flavors any poi dog will love. There are Okinawan Sweet Potato Treats, Azuki and Peanut Butter Cookies, and Wheat-Free Kabocha Pumpkin Treats, among others.

Matsuda uses simple human food to make the special snacks – just... Read more »

Sail Away

There are some special occasions that merit a big backyard bash. And then there are those times when anything less than a blow out just won’t do.

You could get a private dining room at the W, or spring for bottle service at Pearl. Or you could splash out and book a private boat cruise.

Pacific Yacht Management has both sailing and motor yachts that come fully staffed with a captain and crew, plus all kinds of ways to tailor the celebration to the occasion.

He finally popped the question? Book the romantic sunset sailing with a private chef. Honoring a friend for an upcoming... Read more »

Zip Me Up, Scottie

Heads up locals-only police. We’re going to utter the big bad T word. You know, the one that makes you avoid classic landmarks like Diamond Head Crater and Hanauma Bay, and steer clear of the once-marshy-now-concrete jungle that is Waikiki .

So here goes: TOURIST

Phew. Now that’s out of the way, we can admit that sometimes tourists know a thing or two about these islands, and often see things we miss while going about the resident routine. And what they’re seeing now is over two miles of previously inaccessible West Maui forest canopy while riding the Islands ’ newest... Read more »

Wave Hello The top three entries in your Camp Erdman Memory Book: that foot-long (swear!) centipede on your pillow. Little Peter Smith’s tongue so far down your throat you wanted to yak. And being forced to sing He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands — again.

Forget buggy, dirty, boy camp, and think private ocean-view rooms, maid service, morning surf sessions, afternoon yoga, and before-dinner spa treatments. That’s what waits at Kelea Surf Spa, a women’s surf camp on the North Shore aimed at challenging your body mind and spirit, and replenishing... Read more »
