I am planning a trip with my boyfriend for 10-14 days in Kauai (never been) -- most likely in the summer months. I know Kauai has so much to offer and I'd like to see as much of it as I can.
We both are definitely not the "sit at the pool all day" type of people; if we're going to go to Kauai, we'd like to get out and see all the beauty and adventure it has to offer. Because of this, I know that renting a cottage/condo would be our best bet because it would free up some money for some other things.
Since we want to see all of the island, do you think that our best bet would be to split our time on the north and south shores (2 different condo/cottage rentals)? If so, where do you think would be the best general location on both the north and south shores to stay? We'd prefer to be able to use our rental car to easily access all of the destinations on the north half of the island (when staying in the north), and south half (when staying in the south). I'm aware of the VRBO site and notice it has tons of options, but i'd like to narrow things down a bit in terms of location.
Thanks so much!!
