30 Bananas a Day!

Hi all!

My family & I are considering taking a vacation to Hawaii this coming March. However, we don't really want to go to the touristy/commercialized areas so much, and we're not looking to stay at a fancy resort of any kind. We'd much prefer to experience the actual culture there and such.
But - we don't travel a whole lot, none of us have ever been to Hawaii and none of us know anybody in Hawaii, so we have no idea where to even start looking!

Can anybody who's been to Hawaii/lives there help us out? That would be awesome.

Vacation duration would probably be about 2 weeks.
We're thinking of hopefully either renting a simple little cottage - electricity and all that stuff totally optional, or maybe camping in a tent.
We wouldn't want to have a car, we'd probably rent bicycles, so it would be nice if there were a town (or somewhere to get provisions, such as fruit) within a 20-30 min bike ride.

I can't think of any other details to include, but any guidance from those more experienced than us would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks (:

I have never been either but I found this sanctuary and if I went I would prolly stay here first it seems very peaceful tons of fruit and knowledgable and loving people.


I've only ever been to Hawaii once and we stayed on the little island of Kauai. It was so peaceful and definitely not touristy like I've heard the other islands can be. There is basically one main road that goes around the island and the number of trails and waterfalls to explore are literally endless! You can rent a small cabin too, I spoke to a few people who were doing that and if I ever go back that's what I'll be doing! So gorgeous!

Check out east side of the big island. Hilo side. Less nice beaches = less touristy

We have an amazing farmers market too !

hey there i live in maui and upcountry is a great place to stay! we live in Paia, which is considered hippie town on the island. there is "mana foods" which is the best health food store on the island. i dont recommend renting bikes though as people steal them quite a bit here. but maybe itll work for u who knows! if u like "off the grid" vacationing there is a GREAT place my husband baby and i stayed at before we found our home when we moved here. i can give u the info if u are interested. there is 13 aces of fruit trees on the property and u can eat whatever fruit is there when in season, there is a compost out back to put all your fruit peels, the house is run by solar power, and the bathroom/shower/tub is outside! its gorgeous. its in haiku by twin falls (waterfall hike) and the bamboo forest which is awesome. its too far off the grid for u to survive the trip with bikes though. there is a great farmers market on saturdays in pukalani. hope this helps! i saw the guys comment above, and ive heard great things about hilo on the big island like he said. ive never been there though.

In a word:  Molokai.  

Not as green as most of the other isles, the major bonus is that it's minimally populated with just a handful of tourists and a very relaxed vibe.  I once walked back and forth the length of their 3 mile beach and counted something like 15 other people the entire time!

If you're respectfully friendly and get to know folks, you'll find plenty of fruity hookups.  There are a number of WWOOF friendly farms there too, who could at least point you toward fruit as well.
