Grocery Shopping Service

Pick 10 items from our list for the Grocery Shopping Service.

We’ll do the Shopping then Deliver to the refrigerator before you arrive.

We know from many of our previous guests that many of you travel long distances to get to Kauai, then pick up your rental car and drive another fair distance from the airport to arrive at our Vacation Home. Many arriving at rather late hours in the evening. Let us shop for you! This will give you the ability to sleep in, enjoy your firstGrocery Delivery Service for our Guests morning in peace. Sit out on the Lanai and enjoy a relaxing first morning in Kauai.

Who really wants to fly across the country – 1/2 way across the Pacific Ocean, rent a car, drive another 20 minutes to our Vacation Home, then figure out where the Grocery store is and pick which of you is to go there late in the evening?

If you don’t do it then, someone you know will need to go in the morning before breakfast or you need to go out to eat. No Longer!

We decided to do something about it and make your arrival a bit nicer and a little less troublesome. What if someone else did some shopping for you, delivered it and placed in the refrigerator even before you arrived?

You will be able to pick from a list that includes: Milk, Butter, Eggs, Yogurt, Bread, Bacon, Breakfast Sausage, Fresh Fruit, Pancake Mix, Tea, Orange Juice & add a 6 pack of Hololulu Beer Works Hop Island IPA for your arrival evening nightcap. This is an add-on service that you can select during the reservation process.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. After Reservation is made we’ll send you our shopping list to choose from,
  2. Pick up to 10 items from the list, enter your name and your booking # on form, &
  3. Email the shopping list back to us.

The Rest Is Up To Us.

During reservation process  you will be charged the shopping service fee for scheduling the service, shopping and delivery to the refrigerator, plus the charge for the actual cost of what we paid at the grocery store for the groceries. No Mark-up!

We haven’t forgotten our Coffee drinkers. We have left a free sample of Kauai Coffee at the condo for you all ready to brew. I know coffee drinkers are particular about their brew, so we’ll let you obtain your favorite roast.  At My Kauai Vacation Rental, It’s all about the Guest!

Koloa Plantation Days 2019

Poipu / Koloa Plantation Days Festival on Kauai's sunny south shoreKoloa Plantation Days

– is held on Kauai’s south shore every year in July. It is to celebrate the many ethnic groups that came to Hawaii to work on sugar plantations, and the Hawaiians who welcomed them. They are celebrated through music, dance, costumes, and food throughout this ten-day festival.  2019 marks the 34th year for Koloa Plantation Days, a celebration of Hawaii’s sugar industry and heritage. The Koloa plantation was founded in 1835, the first in the islands. The birth of the sugar industry shaped the lives of everyone in Hawaii forever. Although the mill and fields are idle in Koloa and virtually all of the state, many people in Hawaii are former workers or descendants of plantation workers who came from many lands. Koloa Plantation Days brings people to Koloa and Poipu on Kauai’s south shore to celebrate aspects of the plantation lifestyle that we are still connected to.

Koloa Plantation Days July 19th – 28th 2019
