Q. What's your best accommodation advice in Hawaii for two adults and two children,aged 13 and 10?

A. There is an abundance of accommodation in Hawaii, but one of the best options when staying with your family would be a condominium (condo).

These are a home away from home and are found across all the Hawaiian islands. From family-friendly suites to upscale comfort, condominiums mostly feature separate living and bedrooms and full kitchens or kitchenettes.

Some offer in-room laundry facilities allowing you to pack light - so more room for that famous Hawaiian shopping on the flight home.

Condos allow the option of spreading out and often have flexible sleeping arrangements as well as multiple bathrooms (so no living on top of each other).

They are a great way to save money on food as you can cook your own meals - also great for those fussy eaters!

Supermarkets and general stores are easily found throughout the islands, and if you are shopping at a Safeway supermarket make sure you sign up to their discount programme (similar to a Onecard here in New Zealand).

Great for if you're travelling on a budget. But if you don't feel like cooking every night (you are on holiday after all) many restaurants are within walking distance.
