MARTHA & JIM COLLINS' PICKS PAGE

Maui and the good island lifestyle.

Martha and Jim Collins first came to Maui 15 years ago when Jim won a free trip in a sales contest. Like so many others, the Collins fell in love with Maui. Martha and Jim now spend a month on Maui each winter and consider themselves “off island locals” who love and respect Maui’s unique culture and natural beauty. Jim and Martha like to spend their time golfing, snorkeling, and dining out in the many fine restaurants found on Maui. They have their favorite spots and are always looking for new places they can add to their list of picks for Maui. You can write to Martha and Jim at
