Hi! My fiance and I are thinking of Kauai for our early September honeymoon, and I can't seem to find exactly what I (think) I am looking for, both for exact location on the island, or accommodations. If anyone has a suggestion or two that would be great!
We are usually pretty cheap on lodging so I think we're willing to spend a bit on our honeymoon (up to $400, but somewhere in the $200-$300 range would be nicer :))
We are looking to do a bunch of active things, specifically surfing (although we're not great) and would like to be able to have an oceanfront room where we can step outside our door and surf. Or lay on a lounge chair in the sand all day.
I think I prefer a hotel vs a condo/home just so I don't have to be bothered with much during the honeymoon. A room with a small kitchen would be great if we wanted to make our own breakfast or lunch, but I don't anticipate wanting to cook dinners during the honeymoon. It would be great if there was a small town within walking distance for said dinners as well!
Lastly, we definitely appreciate a more local style accommodation, rather than a big name hotel chain, but maybe these big name hotels are going to be our best bet for this laundry list of requests... Also - we prefer not staying in a family friendly hotel, as I would like to keep it a bit more relaxing.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
