Just sent out our deposits on condos for our 25th anniversary trip, 6 days in Kauai (first time) and 9 days in Maui (third time). The trip isn't til Feb. of 2013, but both owners of the condos we rented said that for Feb. it's never too early to book. Over a year away but planning already. I know I'm not crazy, just have the Maui bug for which there is no cure! By the way, as I type this it's snowing like crazy in Chi-town!
