My boyfriend and I are heading to Kauai the second week of January. We are in our late 20s, chill, like music, hiking, cooking...and are hoping to rent a condo or cottage or something similar (with a full kitchen) for 5 nights for less than 200/night (max!).
I read about SeaLodge in Princeville - the units look decent but then I came across the Hanalei Resort Colony - looks very cool - but then started reading about bad smells and possibility of major rain on the North Shore. We dont mind the rain, but dont want to be rained on and stuck in a smelly place while we are on vacation.
Any suggestions of where to stay - ie North Shore or South? Should we head South for the winter week? If so, any places that arent too touristy? we typically like more off the beaten track, but with comfortable beds :)
