A trip to Kauai, one of the most beautiful islands which makes up Hawaii, could be the family holiday of a lifetime. Also known as the "Garden Isle" with over 50 miles of beaches and scenery which ranges from canyons to waterfalls and wooded valleys, the island has something for everyone, of every age. With such a diverse and beautiful island, to check into a sterile hotel would be pointless. To fully experience life on Kauai, investigate a villa, cottage or apartment rental for your holiday accommodation.
Kauai is an incredibly diverse island, and you can find just about every activity you can think of somewhere. You can play golf at Kauai Lagoons Golf Club near Kalapaki Beach, or catch some surf. You can go to Kilauea Lighthouse for some whale watching, or explore the staggering Napali Coast. This 17 mile stretch of coastline full of wooded valleys and staggering 3,000 foot cliffs can't be reached by car, so you need to either take a helicopter tour, a boat tour or just hike if your feet are up to it. The inaccessibility of this natural beauty spot is probably the main reason it has remained so unspoiled, and it is well worth the effort. If your family is keen on water sports, you can also go snorkeling off Poipu Beach, or take a kayak down the Wailua River. The most adventurous family members can even enjoy ziplining over some of the lush wooded valleys of Kauai!
Kauai has a wide range of choices for holiday rentals. Depending on whether you'd rather be in town sampling the nightlife of Coconut Coast or Lihue, or getting away from it all out in the countryside, there are a wide range of rental apartments and cottages catering to a range of budgets. Whether you are looking for a cottage or an apartment for your holiday rental accommodation, however, it will work out better vaue than a hotel, with cottages within ten minutes of Lihue Airport working out at just over $1,000 a week for a family of four. Quite apart from the money saving aspect, renting cottages in this way can give the children a taste of the real culture and lifestyle of both Kauai and Hawaii as a whole.
