I will be visiting Kauai after a 23 year gap (far too long I know!) and will be there for 6 days in late May next year.
I am thinking of staying in the Poipu region, but do not drive. I am not the type of person who will sit by a pool/beach for the whole 6 days, so the ability to walk to a general store/café/attraction is of interest. I will also be doing quite a few activities eg Na Pali coastline, sailing, Waimea Canyon hiking etc. I expect tour operators will pick up/drop off to Poipu for these bookings
I am open to either a hotel or a condo. On initial research I am leaning towards Koa Kea hotel wise and Kuhio Shores condo wise. Are these in an area that will not “isolate” me?
I am certainly not looking to replicate Waikiki within walking distance of my chosen accommodation but a few conveniences would be nice.
Happy to hear any suggestions re optimal locations either Kauai wide or Poipu specific if you feel that is a good option. Stayed at Lihue last time and looking for something a little different this time.
