My 11 years old daughter and me (40 years old mom) plan to go to Kauai in August 2014 for the first time. Plan to stay for 6-10 nights. Have very limited time to prepare and would appreciate any help!! What part of island to stay on? I prefer do not rent a car, to stay in a hotel or condo via vrbo with an easy walking to a beach. Plan on swimming, relaxing on a beach and snorkeling, would like to take a tour or 2 if they pick up from where we will be staying (like we did on Maui).
Our perfect place is:
1. clean and safe (not too fancy is ok too)
2. walking distance to the beach that doesn't have too strong waves (I am just learing swimming).
4. restaurants and grossery shop in an easy walking distance or easy cab/bus ride, or shattle from hotel/condo to there
Plan to spend between $100-200 per night, possibly more depending on how many nights we are staying and if we need a cab or walk to get to the places to eat.
Looking forward to that trip!!
