YYZ to Hawaii, would appreciate help

Hello,


Would really appreciate any ideas on planning a trip from Toronto to Hawaii. A few things are making it difficult for me:

- spending a week in Kailua-Kona (KOA) Aug 2-10

- want to spend a week prior in Oahu (HNL) (or Maui (OGG)), departing Jul 26 (flexible +-2 days)

- wife and I have separate Amex accounts

- I'm totally new to travel points redemption!!


Our points:

- Amex (CA) 200k and 180k

- Aeroplan 81k (Family Sharing)


Finally, would like to fly business there and back and understand we are well short on points -- looks like ~820k points needed for the three of us -- so is it even possible to pay for part of the trip? Also looking at booking YYZ<-->YVR then YVR<-->Hawaii separately to make it possible to use points.


Any ideas at all are welcome and appreciated, thank you FlyerTalk!
