Hideaway in Kauai Paradise

Even on Kauai you can find a reasonably (under $100/night) priced getaway. By searching the web, we found an adorable bungalow just off Tunnels Beach in Haena, Kauai. It had a small kitchen, so we were able to hit the farmers market and relax, relax, relax.

This was a Kauai, one-bedroom rental with a queen-size bed and a queen-size sofa sleeper in the sitting room for extra sleeping. There is a roomy kitchen, but cooking is limited to basic hot-plate cooking and grilling. There is a screened lanai for outdoor dining and a private outdoor shower and bath. What a great place to GET AWAY.

It is within walking distance to wonderful snorkeling. We had one of our best times ever here. It was CLEAN, quiet, and had plenty of room with NO TV and wonderful hosts-all for $455 for the week. All I can say is, "I want to go back!!!!!"

Sunset Concert

The whole idea of being on Kauai is to relax right? Well, we have found the ultimate in nightlife on the island where relaxation just comes naturally. If you find yourself in Hanalei near sunset (we always try and make sure we find ourselves there), just head down to the beach pavilion and find a seat to watch the sun set over Bali Hai.

If the scenery is not enough to get you there, every evening, Doug and Sandy McMaster play the sun to bed. Doug and Sandy are incredible Slack Key performers and provide a show unlike anything I have found anywhere else in the world. See http://www.hawaiianslackkeyguitar.com/. Where else do world-class musicians provide a free concert every night for whoever shows up? Sandy even brings dog biscuits for all their four-legged fans. We bring a blanket and a bottle of wine to toast the end of another perfect day in paradise. (When you are in Hanalei, every day is perfect - remember, no rain, no rainbows.)
