"We just returned from our first vacation in Hawaii. Our first amazing week was spent in this condo and the reviews and pictures won't prepare you for the paradise that awaits. I chose this property after a comprehensive search of the entire island and would absolutely stay here again if I am lucky enough to return. First, the location was perfect! As others have said; Kapaa is a wonderful little place in the middle of the coast, with close proximity to the airport in Lihue, and a short 30-40 minute drive to the south/Poipu or the north/Napali coastline. Next, the condo was such a "retreat" at the day's end; we could go to the pool, walk to the nearby Coconut Marketplace, or enjoy the beach by the property. *Tip- don't miss the great happy hour at the Lava Lava Beach Club- just a short walk away at the Kauai Shores property- cheap drinks and eats from 3-5 with "toes in the sand" seating and live music! The condo was so well equipped with absolutely everything we needed (we had a very different experience in Maui); it was very quiet and peaceful and really felt like a home away from home. Finally, our stay included what felt like our own personal concierge- Cindy in the office was simply a wealth of knowledge about everything Kauai- from ocean safety (there are a lot of rip currents here!) and restaurants to hiking and snorkeling- Cindy knew it all and never seemed annoyed at our endless questions! We spent our second week in Maui-each island has its own personality and benefits and I enjoyed Maui too. For me personally, if given a choice to go anywhere, I would return to this exact place in Kauai- it was beyond perfect. We were a family of four with 2 children, ages 11 and 8."
