It Sure is Busy in Kauai!

Jump to last reply

I'm back from a fantastic trip to Ireland and Paris. Paris is amazing--but it was FREEZING--and I still like Kauai better ;-).

When I returned (before my brain had even arrived) I started making arrangements for my next visit to Kauai, and I had a terrible surprise. There were NO units available at my beloved Sealodge (sniff, sniff) unless I wanted to pack up and move three times (and pay three cleaning fees). With great trepidation I've booked the only thing I could find which is a 2-bedroom oceanfront unit at Ali'i Kai (also in Princeville).

FYI, I checked VRBO and private listings, and was even willing to stay on the Coconut Coast--and I couldn't find anything suitable. That's never happened to me before. Even in the winter high season I've been able to snag great last minute deals.

Well, the good news is that I'll get to spend three weeks in paradise in five more weeks. From there, I'll work in Australia and New Zealand. Leaving from Kauai cuts more than 8 hours off the travel time. Then I'll return to Kauai for five more weeks (including the Kauai music festival: www.kauaimusicfestival.com). I like my life!!!

For those five weeks there are only three Sealodge one-bedrooms to choose from--and none that are among my top choices (although they'll be fine)--and only one two-bedroom that I might take in case my sister does her annual visit. I'd better make up my mind fast.

A newspaper article said Kauai tourism is up 10%--but this seemed like a lot more than that. Sounds like I'll have to plan farther in advance!
