If you’ve ever visited Kauai, then you most certainly can’t wait to come back. If this is your first time visiting the Island, then no doubt you are filled with anticipation and excitement.
The oldest and 4th largest island in the Hawaiian chain, Kauai is a lush paradise fondly known as the “Garden Island”. One of the least populated Hawaiian islands, and famous for its raw and breathtaking beauty, Kauai has a variety of climates and stunning geological features ranging from desert to rain forest, a mini-Grand Canyon, waterfall laden cliffs and coastlines and the largest white sand beaches in the state. Whether you experience Kauai by land, air or sea or the comfort of your chaise lounge on your lanai in one of our luxury Kauai Vacation Rentals, Kauai has something to offer everyone.
Prepare to Unwind & Decompress
Be prepared to unwind and decompress from frenetic city life, the only crowds you’ll experience on Kauai are the throng of locals and visitors at the weekly outdoor farmer’s markets. December through April each year the Humpback Whales make their migration to our warm Hawaiian waters to mate and give birth. Many coastal areas of Kauai offer ideal vantage points to observe these “gentle giants” as well as dolphins and turtles as they frolic in the ocean.
