Just starting to plan trip to Kauai for mid May. DH has company sponsored trip for 3 nights at the Marriott in Lihue. We'll tack on 4-5 nights before meeting up w/ his coworkers.
We've been to Kauai 5 times, but have only stayed in hotels and never during May. We were there in Oct '11 and split our stay between St Regis and Sheraton since we had 12 nights. The prior times, we stayed at the Grand Hyatt. I don't know anything about condos in Kauai.
Our budget is up to $250/night incl taxes & fees. Any recommendations on specific condo complexes? Not sure if we should stay on North shore or Poipu area during May. We love to snorkel and hike (hopefully the trail to Hanakapai'i Falls will be open by then. Even though we had great weather in Oct, the snorkeling conditions were very poor (too rough).
We must have:
- king bed
- refrig & microwave
Very nice to have:
- stove/ cooktop
- separate bedroom/living room (i.e. w/ door, not studio)
Would be nice, but def not mandatory:
- ocean view
- walk to beach
