Hawaii Rental with large pool--seeking advice..

Jump to last reply

Two of us are playing with the idea of visiting Hawaii in 2013. I'm thinking of late spring...April or May..would this be a good time, weather wise, to visit Kauai and perhaps one other island?

I've been to the islands once before, many years ago, when I was invited on an American Hawaii cruise stopping at several ports.

We would prefer to have one or two bases from which we can explore the immediate environs. Perhaps spend a week in each spot, and maybe a few days in a hotel someplace else? Do not need to see everything! Main purpose is to relax, eat very well both at home and out, and to swim. Added plus would be nearby farmer's markets or other sources for local products...I am very interested in food, as anyone who has read my (all too lengthy!) trip reports on other boards will already know!

We are both avid swimmers and so the one non-negotiable is a pool long enough (minimum 40 feet in straight length; no irregular shapes) for serious laps. If anyone knows of a rental with this extra, please post it here. While we would prefer a private house, I am not adverse to a great condo rental,or unit within a hotel complex as long as it has a kitchen and a pool suited for our needs. Would prefer oceanfront, of course, although the rental below is not on the water. Would also like to be within an easy drive of a beach with flat water; is that even possible in Hawaii?

Budget is flexible; we are two persons but could rent a slightly larger house if the pool is great.



I've only begun to look and did find this rental that looks promising and quite reasonable. Any and all comments about it are much appreciated. Note that it does not have a/c; would this be an issue in spring?
