The condo was an absolutely ideal "home base" for our stay in Kauai. Cynthia has thought of just about EVERYTHING for your convenience and comfort -- beach gear, kitchen supplies, even coolers and tupperware for picnics. The view is spectacular, and the location is quiet and peaceful. The pool is convenient for an early morning or evening plunge. If we'd had more time, we'd have taken advantage of the outdoor grill. The furniture, bedding, and decor are of very high quality. This did NOT feel like a typical condo. With all of the amenities and privacy, I'd never stay at a hotel. Cynthia also provided a list of local favorites (restaurants, activities), and included snorkel gear for a day.
We highly recommend: poke bento from Koloa fishmarket (we ate this for lunch almost every day!), an anniversary dinner at Roy's in Poipu, fish tacos at Keoki's Paradise (bar seating), snorkeling at Poipu Beach park (where we also saw a beached monk seal and swam with sea turtles), drinks at the Beach House, ziplining at Princeville Ranch Adventures (on the north shore), and hiking in the Waimea Canyon. Kauai is heaven on earth. We will be back!
