Feb 1, 2017 - Princeville Kauai
Getting to Hawaii was much more difficult than we had expected. We were supposed to arrive by 1 PM but instead didn't arrive until 12 midnight. Heavy fog, in San Diego, delayed flights which resulted in five flight changes. We arrived at the airport at 5 AM but didn't fly out until 3 PM. Wow what a day! There was no transportation to Princeville but an older couple offered to drive us there. Nice! Kauai is called " the garden island" and it's easy to see why. All around you is lush and green, and flowering buses are everywhere, from...Jump to full entry
Sep 6, 2014 - 5 days in 'Close to Paradise'
Kauai rates Number 1 with Jeff. My favorite is The Big Island. We loved the helicopter ride over Kauai. We chose to go with Jack Harter tours on an open-door helicopter. I sat in the front with the pilot and kept my toes clenched on the bars on the floor. That didn't help me stay in. I think that was just the job of the seatbelt! We flew over the Weimea Canyon which is the Hawaiian version (only much greener) of the Grand Canyon. We saw over 100 waterfalls because the weather was very overcast. At one point, as we flew into the W'ale'ale...Jump to full entry
Jan 28, 2011 - Kauai, Hawaii - Bucket List For Sure Folks!
We used our Aeroplan points to fly 1st class on this trip and the pods were incredible! It also spoiled us for future trips in regular class. The skies were so clear flying into Los Angeles that we could clearly see the 'Hollywood' sign and snapped a picture! We stayed at the 'Kauai Beach Resort' day 1 awaiting Lynn and Stephan's arrival as we were sharing their timeshare with them along with Lynn's daughter and son Amanda and Scott. Kauai is known for its ever growing population of wild chickens and roosters. Although chickens were brought...Jump to full entry
Mar 7, 2010 - Despite the weather, we saw the north shore
Thanks to our friends the roosters we were up by 7:30 and on the road by 9am. Despite crappy rainy weather we headed up north. We starting at Ke'e Beach at the very end of the road then planned to work backwards. There was nowhere to park at the beach--people everywhere (dang tourists) so we did a brief look around then started slowly working our way back. We really wanted some beach time so we found Tunnels Beach known for excellent snorkeling, and as soon as we set up camp it started raining- but we stuck it out! So I read a book and Dan...Jump to full entry
Apr 6, 2008 - North Shore of Kauai
We decided to spend our first full day on Kauai exploring the beaches on the north shore. We stopped at the Foodland grocery store (like our Publix) to pick up sandwiches for lunch and drove west to the end of the road to Ha'ena State Park. The road dead ends at the parking lot for Ke'e Beach. That lot was full so we parked farther away and walked to the beach. We stopped to explore the wet cave along the way. It is wet because the floor of the cave is covered with standing grey water. We found a nice shady spot on the beach under the...Jump to full entry
Mar 27, 2007 - Kauai North Shore
Our last full day on Kauai and we headed for the north shore to see Prineville and the other sights of the north shore, and I must say we were not impressed. There are too many cars for the narrow roads, and way too many people. The beach at the end of the road, Ke'e Beach, was as crowed as Jones Beach. The highlight of the day was visiting the Kilauea Lighthouse and Wildlife Preserve. The preserve is home to a wide variety of sea birds, and offers amazing views. The lighthouse, which is no longer used, is located on the northern most point...Jump to full entry
Nov 21, 2005 - Prime Real Estate
I grew up in Hawaii, so I'm accustomed to seeing upscale resorts. And I now live in California, so I'm surrounded by suburbs. But I am seeing a blend of the two—suburbia for folks with money—smack in the middle of Kaua'i's North Shore. Princeville is a planned community that emerged after the luxury Princeville Resort was built in 1985. The "main street" is a wide thoroughfare, flanked by the renowned Princeville golf courses. It is impossible to get lost because huge signs appear before cross streets, indicating the condominiums on that...Jump to full entry
