Looking for recommendations for where to stay this July. We are two families vacationing together with four teen girls (14, 15, 17, 18).
Would like to stay where the teens can safely have some independence...be able to walk to dining, shops, beach etc on their own. Needs to have a pool and preferably hot tub. We are thinking about 10-12 days, in the Poipu area. We would consider two 1 bedroom units that sleep four, or a house with four bedrooms, or even a combination of units that allows the kids their own studio unit (they would love that). Total budget should be about $300 USD per night per family (not inc taxes etc, but less would be better...damn Canadian dollar!)
Our family usually goes to Maui and stays in a moderate ocean front property (Aston Mahana, Kaanapali Shores, Mana Kai). Just can't get enough of hearing the surf at night. Getting this in Kauai would be great and preferred but not a deal breaker. :)
We were also looking at Maui but seems on the surface that Maui is pricier for accomodations. We have stayed there many times, and really like the Kaanapali area.
Suggestions? Thanks in advance!
