First time Hawaii visit  (6 Answers)

Hello! We are visiting Hawaii for the first time and I am having some logistics problems !
I have booked 5 nights at Disney's Aulani Resort on O'ahu... had too do that part first,
rooms were disappearing. My question is:

  • Kauai before or after O'ahu?
  • Can we fly into Honolulu...then jump over to Kauai ( Hawaiin Air?) then fly directly

back home from there, Kauai - Chicago? Is there a better/cheaper way to do this?

  • Most popular area of Kauai to stay in? East , West, North, or South? for walkability,

restaurants, beaches, etc?

Any other tips?

Best Camping in Kauai

Husband and I want to do 4 nights in Kauai, then head to Maui. It will be around Christmas, probably December 25 to December 30 in Kaui, then December 30-January 4 in Maui. We want to tent camp to save money, and spend what we save on a rental car, but I'm open for suggestions for cheap cabin accommodations. I've been researching the cabins at Koke'e State Park, Tent Camping at Camp Sloggett (they have a hot shower, which I found appealing, but there are some mixed reviews). Any suggestions for beach camping? Since we have a car should we stay on the beach instead as it will be warmer? We love hiking, which is why I was thinking Koke'e, but I also want to explore some cute towns and enjoy the beaches. Never been to Hawaii, but we are from Alaska so roughing it is not a problem for us, lol!

Gyms/health clubs in Princeville

Maybe I'm being a bit optimistic, but I plan on going to the gym during my Kauai vacation. Will be staying in a condo in Princeville. A google search turns up gyms in Kapaa, but none in Princeville. The nearby hotels require the purchase of a day pass to use their gyms, but it isn't worth the money ($50 - $250/day) considering all I want to do is use the gym. Does anyone know of any gyms in Princeville/Hanalei? Thank you!

Ideas for 1/2 day activities for 2 adults (in our 30s)  (9 Answers)

We (parents of 2 young children) have one week in Kauai (Dec 29-Jan 5). I'm looking for some half day activities for my wife and I to enjoy while we leave the kids at the hotel with a babysitter. I'm thinking of the following - but would like suggestions for other things:

Dec 30: hike Kalalau Trail for the 2 miles to Hanakapi'ai Beach (only). Note my wife is adverse to heavy sun exposure. Is this hike a bad idea on that account?

Jan 1: 60 minute helicopter tour

Jan 3: Kipu Ranch ATV tour

The other days would be spent with the kids and/or be rain dates!

West Coast boat tour  (3 Answers)

Will be staying on south shore mid March and was wondering about boat tours/snorkeling along west coast. Going with wife and daughter's family. Grandsons are 12 & 14.
Heard stories of rough seas that time of year and just wondering if these long boat rides are a smart thing to do not knowing if any of them are succeptable to motion sickness.
Would appreciate input from anyone that may know about these tours in mid March.

Budget for one month...  (9 Answers)

How much should I budget for a one month stay? (not including acommodation).

There will be two of us and we will be dining out some of the time, but will be just as happy to buy in food and cook 'at home'. Activity-wise, we'll be doing a lot of hiking etc and a little souvenir hunting.

I realise this is a fairly open question, but what i'm after is a 'You won't die of starvation if you bring this much' type answer to use as a jumping off figure.

Thanks in advance for what I'm sure will be perfectly helpful answers!

Beach access  (1 Answer)

We are taking our 2 adult children, their spouses and 2 grandchildren to Kauai during spring break in 2015 (Late March - early Apr). Beach time, snorkeling and maybe a scuba experience and whale watching top our planning list. I see a few comments on Marriott Kauai Resort & Beach and we have some travel points that we could apply to this location. I am interested in comments on villas or condos in lieu of standard hotel type accommodations. We will fly to Honolulu first to tour Pearl Harbor before going to Kauai. I was in Kauai about 25 years ago - so expect it to be quite different today... but primarily looking to enjoy easy access to the water. Thanks for letting me know your thoughts on places and the folks in the area.

Wild Camping  (4 Answers)

Is wild camping legal on the island? I'm more than happy to pay any fees for the priviledge, and hopefully there's a setup whereby said fees are put into the upkeep of the areas or the local communities. I'll be going next year for my honeymoon and the plan is to do 10 days wild (because i'm a massive Jurassic Park fan!), 10 days in a villa or the like.

Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.

Camping Safety  (3 Answers)

I've heard that it's not terribly safe to camp as a tourist in Kauai. Some of what I read mentioned hostilities by locals toward mainlanders. Besides the obvious risk of car theft, what is the current safety situation like in Kauai campsites? Can you recommend some of the safest spots for a street-smart lady camping solo?
Thanks!

looking for a great place for dinner in Poipu area  (5 Answers)

Hi! Our family will be going to Kauai this Saturday and I'm looking for a place to go have a nice dinner on Sunday night. We are staying in Poipu. We are 4 adults and two recent high school graduates (17&18), so places geared toward families with young kids are not preferred (not on vacation, sorry!). We already have the luau experience scheduled for Monday; just looking for suggestions on a casual BUT memorable place to go that's not going to break the bank either. We are open to mostly all types of cuisine. Some place to also celebrate Mom's birthday (67)?

Hotel Help  (5 Answers)

I am traveling to Kauai at the end of July, I have a choice between two hotels and am not sure which is right for my family. I am traveling with my adult children, 21 & 23. We can stay at the Marriott Waioahi in Poipu in a 2 bedroom condo that will most likely face the parking lot or in an Oceanfront hotel room at The Kauai Beach Resort. I have heard that the Marriott is geared more towards young famiiies and will have a lot of kids running around, it is on Poipu beach but it is packed this time of year and it will look over a parking lot. But it is a 2 bed condo which is a plus. The Kauai Beach resort in Lihue has an oceanfront room with 2 beds and a roll away and seems a bit more for adults. I really like the view. Anyone know these 2 properties and could get a recommedation for a stay this time of year would be appreciated.
