Where to stay on Kauai...does time of year really matter?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are booked on a trip to Kauai for 7 nights at the end of February 2015. This is our 2nd trip to the Garden Isle (you can visit some pics of our first trip five years ago on my blog: http://sulynnchen.com/travelblog/?p=665)

We've always been told to steer clear of the north shore during winter months because the chances of rain and/or high surf in the area. Should we continue this pattern? I know many of you are partial to Princeville - would it be ok in February or should we stay further south and just "visit" the north shore on sunny days?

On our last trip in January 2010, we stayed in Waipouli and Poipu and the weather was great for us. We were also on the north shore for about 6 hours one day and it was hot and humid. I'm open to staying in the same resort (Waipouli Beach Resort) again but thought of trying something new.

What are some of your recommendations for February? If you have specific condo recs, that would be great as well. Air Conditioning is a must, I'd prefer it to have a renovated bathroom and kitchen, and an ocean view would be really nice to have but not if it costs a fortune more. I'd like something in the 1or 2 BR range as I think studios are a bit too small for one week. I'm ok with spending up to 250 a night or less than 2000 for the week, and I *may* be inclined to spend more than that if we can get everything we want, however I have not come across something like that yet.

I also have the option of using points at the Grand Hyatt - but it is a lot of points and I probably only have enough for 3 nights and then have to move elsewhere anyways.

We're open to all areas of Kauai - we are planning to drive all over the island anyways. We want to spend more time on the north shore as well as visiting Waimea canyon. And you know that the hubs and I are big foodies so easily accessible to great food (high and low end) will be great as well.

Thank you!!
