      Cruise terminal

      Oahu Mar 22, 2015 at 5:41 PM

      Taking a cruise in May. Is it best to book the ground transportation with Norwegian ($60 pp!) or take a taxi from the airport to the cruise terminal? How easy will it be to get a taxi and what is the approximate cost?

      Turtle Bay Resort

      Kahuku Mar 22, 2015 at 5:37 PM

      Really want to stay here post-cruise. Pretty pricey. Do you think you can get a better rate if you just walk in without a reservation or is it usually pretty booked up? I'm assuming I'd need to rent a car? Any suggestions on the best/least expensive place to rent a car? Should I rent one before travelling or get one when we get there after the cruise?

      Public Bus Service to Pearl Harbor and return?

      Honolulu Mar 5, 2015 at 6:44 PM

      I'm having trouble working out the online bus timetable for Honolulu. I understand that RTE #42 goes passed Pearl Harbor and this route is close to our hotel. I found a bus on the timetable which goes passed timing point 'V' (near our hotel) at 8:13am on a weekday and arrives at timing point 'Q' (Arizona Memorial) at 9:17am but I cannot find a #42 bus leaving Pearl Harbor and returning to Waikiki. Can anyone help me solve my confusion?

      Turtle Bay Beach Villa

      Want to stay here - I saw that you can rent one of the beach villas for virtually the same price as a room at the resort. I understand the only thing you can't use at the resort is the pool and of course there is no maid service. Has anyone rented one of the villas or stayed at the resort?

      Will be staying on south shore mid March and was wondering about boat tours/snorkeling along west coast. Going with wife and daughter's family. Grandsons are 12 & 14.
      Heard stories of rough seas that time of year and just wondering if these long boat rides are a smart thing to do not knowing if any of them are succeptable to motion sickness.
      Would appreciate input from anyone that may know about these tours in mid March.

      Budget for one month...

      Kauai Oct 26, 2014 at 1:29 PM

      How much should I budget for a one month stay? (not including acommodation).

      There will be two of us and we will be dining out some of the time, but will be just as happy to buy in food and cook 'at home'. Activity-wise, we'll be doing a lot of hiking etc and a little souvenir hunting.

      I realise this is a fairly open question, but what i'm after is a 'You won't die of starvation if you bring this much' type answer to use as a jumping off figure.

      Thanks in advance for what I'm sure will be perfectly helpful answers!

      Beach access

      Kauai Oct 21, 2014 at 7:12 AM

      We are taking our 2 adult children, their spouses and 2 grandchildren to Kauai during spring break in 2015 (Late March - early Apr). Beach time, snorkeling and maybe a scuba experience and whale watching top our planning list. I see a few comments on Marriott Kauai Resort & Beach and we have some travel points that we could apply to this location. I am interested in comments on villas or condos in lieu of standard hotel type accommodations. We will fly to Honolulu first to tour Pearl Harbor before going to Kauai. I was in Kauai about 25 years ago - so expect it to be quite different today... but primarily looking to enjoy easy access to the water. Thanks for letting me know your thoughts on places and the folks in the area.

      Wild Camping

      Kauai Oct 13, 2014 at 2:51 PM

      Is wild camping legal on the island? I'm more than happy to pay any fees for the priviledge, and hopefully there's a setup whereby said fees are put into the upkeep of the areas or the local communities. I'll be going next year for my honeymoon and the plan is to do 10 days wild (because i'm a massive Jurassic Park fan!), 10 days in a villa or the like.

      Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.

      I've heard that it's not terribly safe to camp as a tourist in Kauai. Some of what I read mentioned hostilities by locals toward mainlanders. Besides the obvious risk of car theft, what is the current safety situation like in Kauai campsites? Can you recommend some of the safest spots for a street-smart lady camping solo?

    • looking for a great place for dinner in Poipu area

      Kauai Jun 25, 2014 at 1:35 AM

      Hi! Our family will be going to Kauai this Saturday and I'm looking for a place to go have a nice dinner on Sunday night. We are staying in Poipu. We are 4 adults and two recent high school graduates (17&18), so places geared toward families with young kids are not preferred (not on vacation, sorry!). We already have the luau experience scheduled for Monday; just looking for suggestions on a casual BUT memorable place to go that's not going to break the bank either. We are open to mostly all types of cuisine. Some place to also celebrate Mom's birthday (67)?

      I am traveling to Kauai at the end of July, I have a choice between two hotels and am not sure which is right for my family. I am traveling with my adult children, 21 & 23. We can stay at the Marriott Waioahi in Poipu in a 2 bedroom condo that will most likely face the parking lot or in an Oceanfront hotel room at The Kauai Beach Resort. I have heard that the Marriott is geared more towards young famiiies and will have a lot of kids running around, it is on Poipu beach but it is packed this time of year and it will look over a parking lot. But it is a 2 bed condo which is a plus. The Kauai Beach resort in Lihue has an oceanfront room with 2 beds and a roll away and seems a bit more for adults. I really like the view. Anyone know these 2 properties and could get a recommedation for a stay this time of year would be appreciated.

    • Kauai specific questions

      Kauai Mar 27, 2013 at 6:41 PM

      Hello,

      We will be returning to Kauai for a 5 day trip. We went 2 years ago and stayed 4 days, we didn't know much about the island at that time and are searching to plan our next trip better.

      On the first visit, we stayed in a hotel in Kapaa, we liked the area, being kind of central.

      On this visit, we are looking at condos (we will be 4), we have spotted some at Princeville, at first view it seems kind of far from Poipu and the Canyon... what do you guys think?

      To help you out, here's a list of things we are looking forward to do during our 5 day trip.

      - Waimea Canyon + hang out at Poipu beaches/area,
      - Kalalau trail
      - Kayak to Secret Falls
      - Snorkelling
      - Queen's bath
      - Hang out at beaches

      We did visit Kauai once and know our way around it, but are not so aware of the special places.

      So here are my specific questions :

      - Does the east/north (somewhat max 30 minutes from Princeville) of Kauai offer a good enough variety of beaches and snorkelling to cover 2-3 days, so that we do not have to run around the island for those activities?

      - Is there any special places that you would suggest (beaches, treks, waterfalls, activities) ?

      - Would Kauai be a nice place to learn to surf (similar to Waikiki), and if yes, where at?

      - Does Waimea Canyon offer treks that are spectacular? (In my opinion, simply looking at the Canyon from the observation areas is spectacular), are we missing out by just looking at it without walking right into it?

      - So Helicopter rides leave from the airport? Are you aware if you must book in advance, or are you able to get in just a few days prior?

      - Golf, how good is Kauai for golf? Any specific courses to recommand? I know golfing in Hawaii can be expensive, let's say something in the range of 40$ - 90$ for the round (not sure what those prices get you..)

      Thanks all,
