About Robert P Hughes
After years of traveling from the mainland to Kauai for vacation, we decided it is time to become more committed to the ocean lifestyle my wife and I both love. With a mother born and raised on the island of Bermuda, my love for island life started early with trips there to visit my grandparents. And my wife, a 'left-coaster', spent her youth daytripping to Oregon's beautiful Pacific Coast. Living in a winter destination such as Park City Utah, with lots of snow for great skiing, we venture to sun and sand when looking for a break.

Why Robert P Hughes chose Kapaa
Kauai's coconut coast is the location dreams are made of and our condo is situated in the heart of this very special place. It is close to all the island has to offer, from beautiful beaches to scenic golf courses, breathtaking waterfalls, Kauai has it all. And, it is nice that our cousin lives in Kapa'a so that we can be close to ohana.
What makes this Condo unique
From the moment I walked into this condo, I felt like I was in Hawaii. A feeling I did not feel when looking at more than a dozen properties on the north shore, the south shore and all around the east side. When I go to Hawaii I don't want my surroundings to feel like Anywhere, USA. I want to know I am in Hawaii when I wake up and too many property's felt generic. We chose this one because of how it made us feel when we saw it for the first time. We are blessed to have this Plantation Hale condo as an island getaway.

We found the condo to be updated, well furnished and comfortable. The owner was great about responding to our questions quickly prior to our arrival. The location is nice for several reasons. It is centrally located on the island, which makes traveling around the island more convenient. There are restaurants and a market within walking distance of the condo, which was also convenient. It is not a large condo, but perfect for two people. We found the price to be very reasonable for how nice the condo was. There is no washer/dryer in the condo itself, but within the building there is a washer/dryer that was easy to find and use. The only drawback was there was no central air, rather an air conditioning unit in the bedroom. It was rather noisy, but after a couple of nights of getting used to it, there wasn't an issue. After a couple of days, the bedroom air conditioner did cool down the living room as well. The condo faces the pool area which gives a nice view. The pools were very nice. Overall, it was a great experience staying in this condo and Kapaa.
The unit itself was well equipped. It had all the kitchen supplies, beach supplies including towels and chairs. The complex had nice pools, hot tubs and BBQ grill. The bedroom has ac which is nice, otherwise it'd be too hot at night in the bedroom. The location was a few minutes walk to a beach although we were told it's not a good swimming beach, but those were only a few mins drive away. The location is conveniently located near shops and restaurants. Also a good location if you're going g to the north and want to be able to get to the south or waimea area as it's about halfway between the two. Overall very happy with our choice.
Sweet Condo in Kaua'i
This is a very nice condo in a very convenient location. We were very pleased with the overall appearance, location, cleanliness, amenities, and proximity to the ocean. The grounds are well kept and the grounds keepers responded immediately to any problems. We had one issue with the condo that was resolved, and the owner went above and beyond to rectify the situation. The air conditioning unit is on the loud side, and is located in the bedroom, but it has no problem cooling the condo.
The condo is located a only a few miles away from the airport, Walmart, and Costco, and there is a Safeway about half a mile to the north. It is within about an hour and a half of anywhere you can drive on the island, making every location a day trip. The beach that can be seen from the patio is beautiful and not suitable for swimming(like many of the beaches on Kaua'i), but there are swim/snorkeling beaches within a mile or two in each direction. We mostly made our meals in the very well equipped kitchen, so we cannot comment on the local restaurants.
This is a great condo. We really enjoyed our stay, and we would recommend this property to anyone.
When staying in Kapa'a Town, guests have easy access to many wonderful sites and activities on Kauai. Additionally, because of the mid-island coastal location, ease of getting to the beautiful North Shore or South Shore is do-able for half or full day visits.
