... up, up and up. The first part of the canyon was more like a broad valley with Waimea River winding through it. We stopped at several lookouts. There were elevation signs for every 500' of gain.
Before long we joined Koke'e Road and were soon in Waimea Canyon State Park. One of our stops was a little falls through red rock. We pulled over and parked at the Waimea Canyon Lookout. There was a large parking lot that even had ...

The majority of the other snorkellers had snorkel vests on which were a drag on them so it was the Timothy family out in front on our own swimming down the reef with the little fella in the end. We got some good footage on the GoPro as well. We toured the Napali coast which was epic..massive imposing mountains rising ...

It looked really beautiful and really solidified our growing fondness for Kauai. There was some good snorkelling to be had near the rocks with a tonne of coloured fish swimming around in the crystal clear water just off shore. ...

Our final goodbyes were said at the pool area of our complex. And the good conversation and fellowship went on into the night.

Once again exhausted, we chose to walk over to Casa di Amici, where we ate last night for dinner. We brought some champagne (from Costco), had some wonderful food and toasted to the end of a wonderful trip.
Tomorrow...home. (sad ...

Prince Kuhio Unit 207
This was our eighth trip to Kauai and the third at Prince Kuhio. We had to stay at a studio (#207) for four days until our one bedroom became available. We had stayed at the studio years before and it had not been updated since . The linens were threadbare, lumpy bed, hardly any dishes, pots or pans and it badly needed some paint. We strongly advise you to find another place to stay while at The Prince Kuhio.

Nice Place - Good value
We stayed in May 2005 (232) for 3 days and thought it was a very place to stay for the price. The place was clean and quiet. Walking distance from the beach. Very spacious for a studio condo.
Perfect Fit For Our Needs
We stayed in unit 115 at Prince Kuhio and would return to this condo again. We booked the unit through Gloria's Vacation Rentals, which went smoothly, and the final cost, with the cleaning fee and tax was $825 for 7 nights.
The condo consisted of a living room, smallish but nice kitchen, and a single bedroom with a comfortable queen-sized bed. The furnishings were nice, relatively new, and did not feel cheap at all. There were two lanais, one off the living room, the other off the bedroom: both overlooked the adjacent Prince Kuhio park. There was a slight view of the ocean, which you could hear at night (and roosters in the morning!). There was no air-conditioning, but the rooms cooled off nicely with the ceiling fans. That being said, I think it would have been warm if we had spent a lot of time in the condo during the heat of the day. There were 4 beach towels, a small cooler and ice pack, and beach mats and chairs. The unit had a TV with cable, as well as a VCR/DVD player and a stereo. The grounds of the condo were beautifully landscaped and obviously well-tended. We did not use the pool, but it looked nice, and there were also nice coin-operated washer/dryers in the building.
All in all, for the price of the unit and our needs, we were very pleased with the condo. We wanted someplace to cook some of our meals and crash at night, while saving some money for fun activities like helicopter rides and expensive dinners. If we wanted to spend more time in the condo, I would suggest an ocean-side condo at the Kuhio Shores across the street. We found the Poipu area to be an excellent spot to base our activities. We enjoyed being able to walk to the Beach House restaurant and its adjacent snorkeling beach, and being able to take short drives to Poipu Beach, Spouting Horn, and the National Tropical Garden.
Great Value - Great Location
I had Unit 116. It is right across from the pool but is very quiet. The unit had air conditioning which is not really needed at night. It made it more easy to regulate the humidity of Kauai.
The price was $575.00 plus $100 buck in taxes plus fees but well worth it. The place next door was much more for my January 05-11. 2005 time frame and the least expensive I could find in the Poipu area.
It was somewhat bare bones but not at all a bad deal. The unit was nicly furnished, had a great bed, kitchen facilities, and cable tv. It was not luxurious by any means but did not feal cheap either.
I do have some complaints. There was only one beach towel and the front window was not completely covered. I was able to make for greater privacy by hanging an extra sheet over the windows. The pool was very shaded and there is no hot tub which would have been nice after the long hikes and snorkel trips around Kauai. The building is clearly the oldest of the condo's on this stretch of development and is dwarfed by the Lawai Beach Resort next door.
On the plus side, it is across the street from a great, yet small, snorkeling beach. It is a short drive to Koala for groceries and gifts and an quick drive to Poipu. It is a beautiful hike to Shipwreckers Beach if you park down by the Hyatt, and near all the nice Poipu resorts where you can swim at their beaches as well.
Kauai is a beautiful island. This is a good place to stay to save some bucks and still feel like you are experiencing your vacation in a bit of luxury.
The BESt area, the BEST deal!
My boyfriend and I went to Kauai for the second time in two years in June of 2004. Having stayed in the Princeville area during our first vacation (which is beautiful, but on the "rainy" side of the island), we decided to find somewhere in Poipu (the sunny side...which it is!). After much research on vacation rentals, I came upon the Prince Kuhio Condo's.
We stayed in #331, which is a studio. It had a small kitchen, decent sized bathroom, king size bed, and a balcony with an ocean view. It also had an AC which I recommend if you are travelling during the summer months, some of the units didn't offer this.
When we arrived we found a little welcome package with coffee, cookies, pen, paper, keychain, etc. Also provided was snorkel gear, a bodyboard, tons of beach towels, pool floties, ice chest, and a beach umbrella. All of this for only about $80 a night, we felt at home in our little studio :)
Across the street (literally just steps away) is good to great snorkeling depending on the conditions. Within a mile is one of the best beaches on all of Kauai-Poipu Beach, which fronts the Sheraton-we even saw this beach voted # 1 beach on the E Channel, but there are literally dozens of gorgeous beaches on Kauai.
Overall, this is a GREAT place to stay if you aren't stuck on having a giant pool with bar service (there is a nice, but small pool...of course no bar service) and terry cloth bath robes. If you plan on visiting Kauai to explore the island and don't want to spend a ton of money, this is the place to go.
We stayed in unit #111 from March 17 to 22nd of 2004. It is a clean unit in a nice property. The building is peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed many sunsets from the tiny beach across the street. Snorkeling was fantastic across the street as well.
This was a great value and a wonderful trip.
Nothing fancy, but a great value.
We booked this place the day before our 12/12 - 12/19 stay and got a one bedroom unit for a studio price. Good view from the balcony off the bedroom of our third floor unit (#321) - view of the ocean and Prince Kuhio Park (including heiau). STRONG winds throughout most of each night, which I really liked - made for good sleeping. Grounds are nice, though we didn't spend a lot of time in the room during the day. Kauai is a place that deserves exploring, so we decided not to go overboard on accommodations, since we didn't plan to be there a lot. This condo was plenty nice as a base for exploring the island. Some aspects of the layout of our unit were odd (I understand that the building is a converted hotel), but all in all that wasn't really a big deal. The ambiance is a little downscale, but we weren't bothered by that - our goal was to save money on accommodations that could be spent doing things on the island. Frankly, given the location and adequacy of the accommodations, I thought this place was a great value at $70/night + taxes.
A very good condo experience
We were at the Prince Kuhio Condominium in October, 2003. The location, view, and accomodations were excellent. We did not have AC in our unit; it was warm the first day or two, but it soon cooled comfortably. We plan to go back!
Clean and economical
October 2003 : We just stayed in unit #105 for 3 nights and found this building to be a great buy. The grounds are decent, the pool is nicely shaded and is a very replaxing area to hang out. Our unit was recently renovated and was nicely furnished. I couldn't imagine paying for beachfront at other resorts as this building is steps to some great surfing and snorkeling, and dining at the Beach House restaurant. We were worried about taking "budget" accomodations but this unit was a nice as some condos and hotels that cost twice as much. The owners have made this feel like a comfortable home-away-from-home.
WONDERFUL place to stay! There were 4 of us in this 2 bdr 1 bath unit on the top floor of the condo complex. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Everything to do and see is just a short walk or drive from this complex. We especially enjoyed the pool area several times a day after being in the ocean. Very tropical! Unit #401 has a huge deck with an incredible view. There are lounge chairs if you don't feel like being in the sand, and a nice table and chairs for outdoor eating. Staying in this unit makes you gets your excercise also as it is four flights of stairs up! But very well worth the climb every time. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this complex to anyone!
