Hi, we are booking for a 10 day stay on Kauai (East shore or North Shore) to celebrate our 30th anniversary (end of Sept into October 2014). We have been to Kauai 6 times over the years, renting houses (a condo the first time). We've stayed in Hanalei, Anini, Aliomanu and Princeville in the past.
I'm looking at 3 bedroom homes because I want a little space. Also, our son + girlfriend will be on Maui visiting family, and will come stay with us for a few days.
Our last trip was a house on Aliomanu; loved the location but the house had bug & bed comfort issues. My priorities are a nice CLEAN house, on or very close to a walk-able beach (swimming if possible) and peaceful. I have no problem driving to the beaches for snorkeling/swimming, though. We're really looking forward to revisiting Kauai.
some options here - advice/opinions from you all greatly appreciated! It's been over 10 years so I know things have changed. Here are some places I like:
top choice: Napaina @ Anahola: http://www.napaina.com/Views/About.aspx
Anahola house: http://www.vrbo.com/80721
Ka Hale Lihi Kai (Anahola) - http://www.vrbo.com/80721
I have other houses I like on Anini + Hanalei but don't want to overload this post. I understand that Hanalei has gotten rather crowded/busy but by late Sept, would be better?
Thanks for all advice!
