About the neighbourhood
Walking distance to restaurants, galleries and gourmet farmer's market at Kukuiula. About a mile from Spouting Horn and the National Tropical Botanical Gardens (one of two gardens in the country to receive National designation). A short walk to the little boat harbor. Behind us is Prince Kuhio park, approximately 3-acres containing the sacred Hoai Heiau, an ancient fishpond, and the Prince Kuhio Monument commemorating the birthplace of Prince Kuhio Kalanianaole, the last royal heir to the Hawaiian throne. No one can ever build on a heiau so we will always have this park behind our building which is filled with Plumeria, mango and papaya trees. Central for touring the entire island. Kauai is known for its miles of beaches and diverse topography and mini climate zones. Our beaches at... more
Getting around
Driving around Kauai is very easy since there is only one main road. You can't get lost. While the condo is walking distance for buying groceries, walking to galleries, shops and going on beautiful beaches and beach walks, a car is necessary for seeing the rest of our spectacular island. You will want to go to Waimea Canyon, drive out to secret beaches where you may be the only people around, see the island's waterfalls, the Nepali Coastline, wander the lush gardens located throughout the island, rent a kayak out on the Wailua River. We will send you more information about things to do and we have guidebooks in the condo. If you like to plan, get a copy of the latest edition of the 'Ultimate Kauai Book' to plan out your trip beforehand.
