Ancient Kauai Adventure Awaits

Why Kauai?

This is why Kauai

This is why Kauai

If you’re looking for the feel of old Hawaii without the mega resorts, Kauai should be your pick. Drop down any path on the side of the “highway” and it’ll likely lead to you to an empty beach, each with its own character and few if any people.

In fact Kauai has the most beaches of any of the Hawaiian islands. While the beach may not be swimmable due to the crazy waves (check out the world renowned surfers at Hanalei Bay) and potential deadly currents, you may end up having it nearly all to yourself. Well maybe!

Food – don’t expect, nor will you want to, sit down to fancy eats. Kauai is the place to drop in on the local bakery that serves up locally roasted coffee and delicious treats. When done well, you can’t beat the ubiquitous coconut shrimp. Or knock on the back door of a fish shop for sushi. Roadside fruit stands and farmer’s markets are in abundance. And of course there’s the epitome of Hawaiian cooking The Plate Lunch – served up in styrofoam containers and heavy on the starch. The mains run from fish to chicken or pork served in a Japanese, Chinese, Philipino or Hawaiian style. For dessert a refreshing shave ice.

So go ahead rent a house
