This time-share property is simply a luxe way to spend a week on the Garden Isle on the North Shore. The staff is absolutely Aloha-friendly and the service is superb if you want assistance -- however, the real appeal to myself and partner -- privacy and DIY. We can park and walk-in - no need for valet. We can shop and get FRESH fish from a num ber of fish markets, FRESH papaya, mangoes, pineapples, guavas and more from local Farmer's Markets or any of 20 other shops or purveyors within a 10 minute drive -- and with our own full kitchen we can cook and make our own food or easily heat up delicious leftovers if we eat out in the nearby village, Hanalei or ANY of scores of local eateries.
And if you play golf, a simple walk out the door and you are in your golf cart.
Also, the pool and hot-tub on the water-front side overlooks the Pacific and you can see the Kilauea lighthouse in the distance. Frigate birds hover in the lifts. as a guest of the SPG Westin family of properties, one can valet for free at the St. Regis 2 miles down the road and use their beach facilities as well -- but not their pool.
The best expresso coffee that we found island-wide was in a little almost hole-in-the-wall brekkie place, Lei Petite, a 15 minute walk away in the Princeville Shopping complex. The lovely little town of Hanalei ( sort of SF's The Haight - island style) is 10 minutes away as are scores of island things to do on the North Shore of Kauai.
