    • Visiting Kona for Ironman Oct 2017

      Kailua-Kona Jan 8, 2017 at 1:39 AM

      We live in Perth W.Australia and plan to visit Kona for the Ironman in October (as spectator only) and plan to be there for 2-3 weeks. We regularly spectate at 70.3s and full Ironmans in Australia/Asia, great to watch.

      Can anyone please suggest/recommend good location to stay (and possible condos/hotels/airB&B) within easy reach of start and transitions.

      Many thanks. Penny

      Hotel, activities, surfing recommendations?

      Maui Jan 2, 2017 at 4:13 PM

      Hi everyone,

      It's been a while since I've written. Well it's time for another trip. I'm hoping to go to Maui to experience Hawaii for the first time with my husband

      I don't know much about Hawaii. Just know they have great coffee and a great place to learn to surf.

      Does anyone know of a great hotel near the waters with a nice beach that's also near activities like surfing, snorkelling, hiking, kayaking? We like the adventure type of vacations.

      Hopefully to get some ideas and not break the bank.

      Thanks.

    • Access to pools/resorts

      by jmdjmd Online Now Jul 26, 2004 at 12:54 AM

      Greetings, My fiance and I will be staying in a condo in the Poipu area (Kuhio Shores) this October -- the condo complex does not have a pool on its grounds as far as we can tell. Are there weekly or day guest passes at local resorts with pools in case we'd like to take a dip? How do the larger resorts allow access? wristbands, room keys? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

      My family and I will be visiting Kauai next year for the first time. We are thinking about staying at Kuhio Shores. It appears to be a very nice place to stay and right on the water. Any past experiences would be appreciated! Mahalo

      Popoi??

      by sandy5 Online Now Jan 18, 2004 at 10:40 AM

      I am going to Kauai for the 1st time in May. I have been to Maui before and loved it. I have heard how nice Kauai is and presently looking through brochures and internet sites to find out about where to stay. I think I have it narrowed down to Poipu and maybe the Sheraton. Where are most of the restaraunts and things to do. Otherwords what would be the heart of the island if any?I understand there is more chance for sunshine on the south side of the island which is something I want. Also I plan on playing golf there. Thanks

    • Kauai Weather in early December.

      by George_Shaw Online Now Jul 25, 2003 at 8:31 AM

      I am planning on visiting Kauai in December, and I have read that the North Shore (Princeville) receives more rain than the South Shore (Poi'pu). My question is does more rain in December mean lots of overcast skies and constant rain throughout the day? I'm really the "bright sunshine" guy who loves lush greenery (not just beaches) but want to make sure that I don't get stuck/caught in rainy days (complete washouts!) in Princeville. Thanks, George
