FAQ



Q. Which is the best Hawaiian island to visit? Why visit Kauai?

A. I’ll try to be brief. Kauai, the Garden Island, is the most beautiful of all of the Hawaiian Islands. Kauai has learned from the mistakes of Oahu and Maui and has limited the commercialization of the island, so that the Hawaiian experience you imagine will be pretty close to what you receive.

Hollywood has long recognized and showcased Kauai’s splendor in many, many movies (Six Days and Seven Nights, Jurassic Park, South Pacific, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Donovan’s Reef, Blue Hawaii, Honeymoon in Vegas, Outbreak, etc.) Television has shown the island in Fantasy Island, Thorn Birds, etc.

Kauai is an exotic American treasure!



Q. When is the “best” time to visit Hawaii? When is the “best” time to visit Kauai?

A. The best month to visit Kauai is whenever you can! Actually, the temperature stays pretty much the same throughout the year. The ocean is most calm in and around the summer months and most turbulent in the winter months. March is probably the most rainy month. The whales swim, leap and spray, in front of the condo, between about November and April. Air fares tend to be the lowest in September, October and November.



Q. Why stay in HollysKauaiCondo?

A. Simply put, there is no better value. The condo offers a spectacular ocean view from every room, which is UNIQUE to relatively few condos on the island. It is appointed with tropical/Hawaiian decor and paintings of local artists. It is centrally located within the magnificent resort community of Princeville. It is meticulously maintained. Visit the “Testimonials” on the home page.



Q. Which Hawaiian island is best for a honeymoon? Is Kauai a good honeymoon location?

A. Kauai is a perfect place to honeymoon. Who hasn’t dreamed of being on a deserted tropical island, with the person they love? Kauai isn’t deserted, but it can seem like it. You can have as restful or active a honeymoon, as you like (Some Activities To Consider). In Kauai, you will not be visiting another city, you will be immersing yourselves in one of the most beautiful tropical settings in the world.



Q. Is a luau worth going to? Are they just a tourist attraction?

A. “Beauty” is always in the eye of the beholder, but we have attended five (5) different luaus and never fail to attend one or more, each trip. For us, a luau allows us to experience the local culture in terms of food, dance and the less tangible “spirit of aloha”. In addition, it would be difficult to find a better food, drink and entertainment value. Plus, we look forward to meeting people from all over the world and hearing how they discovered Kauai and what they have enjoyed, while on the island.



Q. What is there to do, on Kauai?

A. A Kauai vacation can be as restful and serene or as active and as exhilirating as you want to make it. We have visited the island for over 15 years and have still not experienced all that the island offers. Read The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook, pickup a free copy of 101 Things To Do magazine at the Lihue airport or talk to others, who have been there. There is every kind of water activity (scuba, snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing, surfing, swimming, etc.), horseback riding, golf, tennis, shopping, hiking, helicopter and boat tours, museums, botanical gardens, flea markets, farmer’s markets, art & jewelry stores, sight seeing tours, birding, lighthouses, photo oportunities, etc.

For more details on things to do visit our activities page or have a look in the Fun Things To Do photo gallery.

Q. What is the “best” Kauai hike?
