My husband and I have been visiting Kauai for several years running and every time we visit the island we stay in #334 at Prince Kuhio. This unit is near the end of the building on the top floor (yes, there are some stairs but it's exercise!) and faces the pool. It's usually pretty quiet and there's always a lovely breeze that sweeps the lanai keeping you nice and comfortable. It's lovely to sit out there, level with the tops of the palm trees, and have coffee while reading a book and listening to the birds.
The unit is very nicely kept with decent furnishings, tile floors, nice pictures on the walls and a basket filled with books related to Kauai. There's always a Kauai Blue Book we can peruse that has all the secret gems on Kauai that you can go explore during your stay. The bed is huge and comfy. The TV is newish and is on a handy cart that you can move around to face the living room or bed. There is also a sofa bed but we've never actually unfolded it. I think the place would be a bit cramped with more than two people in it though, unless they're your own kids.
The kitchen used to be a super funky 1950s era steel or cast iron job that was really neat but not very awesome to cook on. But now the kitchen's been renovated and everything is up to date and brand new! Very exciting! The kitchen is also very well equipped. We've never lacked for a utensil or a pot or pan. All the little appliances work great too. There's a toaster, blender, the all important coffee maker.
Whenever we get to our unit at Prince Kuhio we feel like we've come home to our place in paradise. And that's how it should be when you're on vacation!
