... was disappointing was the entertainment. Although, again, the setting was gorgeous. The stage was in the middle of a pond, with a volcano/waterfall in the background. So very theatrical. And they did have the standard cool native dances (Tahitian, Filipino, Samoan, and a fire dancer). But there were too many slow, boring hula dances in between the cool stuff.
By the time we got back from the Luau it was almost 10 pm, so we didn't stay up too much ...
... We stayed for quite a while and will go back when Erin is with us to visit the Refuge. When we left we headed west on the highway and turned off at Kalihiwai Road and went to Kalihiwai Beach which would have been the perfect place to swim. There were some of locals there enjoying the surf and the sand. We came back the way we came and turned off on a dirt road that lead to the public access for Secret Beach. We parked our car and ...
... 8230;.but the water is not super clear due to the fact that it is *winter*. I will take snorkelling over shovelling anytime, any day!
We saw these amazing Spinner Dolphins. They are smaller than a Bottle-nosed Dolphin and when they jump out of the water - they spin!! It was very cool to see! It’s almost as if they knew we were watching them, so they were showing off! I think I got some good video of this.

... I couldn't put a name to him even after trawling through photos on the internet. Cherie said that many film stars either own or rent property on the North Shore as they don't often get recognised there. She said that she regularly sees Ben Stiller on his bike, cycling along the beach path. Returning from Foodland we stopped off at CMP to watch the midday hula show. It had started to rain so the show was under cover between the shops.Then Cherie arrived with the children, her ...
... nobody walking, nobody to be found or seen anywhere but us three. We battled intermittent periods of heavy rain, but were able to score a really fun session.
We didn't do a damn thing the rest of the day because of the ****** weather. It's the one and only day of the trip so far that i missed not being able to watch movies or TV...it was the perfect day for that.

Historical Traveler Reviews Kauai Country Inn Kapaa
My husband and I spent 6 nights in the Green Rose Suite at the Kauai Country Inn, and would highly recommend it. Mike and Martina are warm, welcoming, knowledgeable, and simply delightful. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable, with beautiful hardwood floors. We particularly enjoyed the spacious kitchen/great room, and high speed internet right in our suite. Even the smallest suite there is charming. The location was perfect for us; off the beaten track, quiet and peaceful, with easy access to both the north and south shores. Martina recommended hiking trails, with spectacular views, that we thoroughly enjoyed. Kauai is lovely. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable, home base from which to explore, look no farther than the Kauai Country Inn.
We stayed at the Kauai Country Inn for 8 nights, and it was great! First, it's a little inland, but it's in the perfect spot, halfway between the north and south of the island.
Kauai Country Inn
Kauai Country Inn was a wonderful experience. It had everything that was advertised. A very homey atmosphere, beautiful location, facilities and extremely quite. It made you feel you were a local instead of a tourist. Martina and Mike are very gracious host. I'm definitely making this my number #1 place to stay on Kauai.
My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at this Inn in Kapa'a. We were in the Orchid Suite, a *steal* at $95/night. It has a separate bedroom (with computer and internet connection!), a small kitchen with microwave, hotplate, coffee maker, toaster, sink, and table, and a bathroom. Outside is a lovely lanai (deck) with full sized grill, table, hammock, and rocking chair.
The Best Inn ever!
If you want a beautiful Inn off the beaten path with advice from locals...this is the place to stay. Everything from the deck that overlooked the rainforest, in which I did yoga every morning with Kona coffee......to the amazing birds....to the grill that you can cook up local fish .......we absolutely loved this place and will be back!
This was a great find. We stayed there when we got married and it was great. We were able to get the private house and it was wonderful. It was a 3 bedroom 2 bath house with a full kitchen. They also have another house where they rent out suites but i did not see them. The place was quiet and secluded. A place to relax and isn't that why you go to Hawaii? You will need a car to get there and some really good directions though. Hawaii has a way saying the highway/street name instead of the hwy # which is what you get on yahoo. It will also take time in getting used to the local attitude which is really laid back. I am from Los Angeles and they say that we are laid back... Hawaii is even more.
We just got back from our second visit to Kauai. The first time we stayed in a Kapaa condo on the beach, nice enough but near a very busy street. This time we decided to try the Kauai Country Inn, off the beaten track in the Wailua Homesteads above Kapaa. What a great decision! The grounds of the inn are lovely, our suite was beautiful, clean and nicely decorated (and with lots of friendly touches like coffee, cookies, and macadamia nut candy), and the setting was fantastic. Up in the forested hills, the gentle breezes blow most of the day and it rains a few times daily; it is just a wonderful contrast to staying in the hot town. Martina and Mike Hough were very friendly and helpful hosts. We can't say enough good things about the Kauai Country Inn and would definately would stay there again. Also, Kapaa is a great jumping-off place to stay: centrally located, with all the good restaurants, and not trendy/fancy like Hanalei or Poipu. In conclusion, we highly recommend the Kauai Country Inn for people who want to stay in a lovely place, in the hills where the locals live.
We were a little concerned when booking, but the Kauai Country inn exceeded our expectations. Immaculately clean, beautifully furnished, good (off the beaten track) location. The owners were lovely, gave us some great recommendations. Just make sure you're not visiting in rainy season (rained 3 of 4 days).
Thumbs up to the Kauai Country Inn...
Everyone knows what to expect when they stay at a big hotel but choosing a bed & breakfast can be scary... Needless to say we made the right choice with the Kauai Country Inn! Mike & Martina Hough are great hosts, and the property is impeccable and has a lot of charm. I was especially appreciative for the insider info on where to eat and how to find the golf courses only the locals seem to know about. Thanks again. We'll be back!"
My wife and I went on our delayed honeymoon to Hawaii on Christmas 2004. After a few problems in Oahu including lost luggage, bad luau experience and heavy extra expenses we arrived dirty and tired at Lihue on the 27th.
