The summer is quickly approaching and everyone is beginning to look for availability and booking their stays in their travel destinations. It is projected that in the month of June the destination of Kauai will have a 72% occupancy level, July will top up to 96% and August 90%.
If you haven’t already booked your stay in Kauai you will begin seeing higher prices and less availability throughout the Island. Since my plans have not solidified on when I will need to travel back to Kauai and work on our new home build, I opened up additional time in June, July and August for Vacation Travelers to stay at our Kauai Vacation Rental. Now would be the best time to schedule your stay to ensure you can get lodging at the time you are wanting to travel.

Poipu Kai Resort, Across from Kauai’s Famous Beaches
Manualoha at Poipu Kai is a condominium complex of 11 units within the Resort area of Poipu Kai. These condos are some of the closest to the southern beaches of Brennecke’s and Poipu beach along the south side of Kauai. Located on the southern part of the property and nearly just across the street from Brennecke’s Beach is the community swimming pool. There you can sit back on the lounge chairs see waves breaking on the beach & enjoy swimming in the pool to cool off from the warm summer sun. Poipu Beach happens to be a common resting place for the green sea turtles & the Hawaiian monk seal. Inadvertently taking the best spot, you might have to move to a slightly less desirable space in the sand. I have many times gone out in the waves of Brennecke’s beach and been bumped by one of the wave riding sea turtles. Keep an eye out for them. They are a sight to see.
Poipu Kai Resort also has 4 tennis courts to use for exercise and enjoyment along with a grand amount of open green-space. You can cross the complex and get to the most westerly sports bar in the United Sates, Kalapaki Joe’s. There you can either get a refreshing cocktail, appetizers, or a meal. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner until 10:00 pm. Manualoha at Poipu Kai is frequented by travelers from all over the world looking for the warmth of the sun, the tropical environment and the hospitality of the Hawaiian people. Many come year after year to enjoy the island and our condo.

The Mountain Tubing Adventure is a unique activity that gives you a chance to travel back in time to the sugar plantation era. Circa 1870 a series of ditches, tunnels, and flumes were hand-dug by Chinese laborers to deliver water from the rain-forest to the thirsty sugar cane fields near Lihue. This land is privately owned and has never before been accessible to the public. The recent closure of the Lihue sugar plantation made this tour possible … allowing Kauai visitors the chance to travel into the island’s interior and witness this engineering feat in a fun and relaxing way!
Your adventure begins at Kauai Backcountry Adventure’s office on Highway 56 in Hanamaulu, just a few minutes away from the Lihue Airport. Your guides will fit you with gloves, a helmet and a head lamp and check your footwear to make sure that they won’t come off and float away during your adventure. Your group will then climb into a colorful 4WD transport vehicle and head into the interior of the island – crossing old sugar cane fields along the way. Your guides will tell you about the plantation’s history and about the lives of the men who built and maintained the ditch system.
You get into your tube and just sit back and enjoy the ride. This isn’t a whitewater adventure but it isn’t the lazy river at your neighborhood waterpark either. The water at the Mountain Tubing Adventure is typically knee deep in most places, and the current moves you along fast enough that no paddling is required. This tour goes in and out of many tunnels, one of which is almost a mile long! You’ll glide along in the underworld with a headlamp to light your way. At the end of your tubing adventure, the guides serve up a picnic lunch at a beautiful, natural swimming hole.
Kauai Backcountry Tubing Adventure: $110.00 per Floater plus Hawaii sales tax .

Frequently asked Hawaii weather questions:
When is the best time to go to Kauai?
Anytime is a great time to go to Kauai. We’ve been to Kauai several times in every season and enjoyed wonderful weather. For the best weather and prices, we recommend visiting Hawaii in mid/late April, May, early/mid June, September and October.
Is Kauai cold in the winter?
We don’t think it’s cold. Look at the above weather charts which indicate that even in the coldest months, the average daytime high temperatures average between 78 and 82F, which is quite pleasant. You’d have to visit Kauai during a particularly odd weather pattern to be cold in Kauai. During winter months, you might want to have a light sweater to wear in the evenings, but during the daytime, you’ll most likely enjoy “bikini weather” while playing in the ocean.
Is Kauai’s weather humid?
The degree to which a person feels humidity depends on the humidity of the climate where they live. For example, someone who lives in the humid southeastern United States probably won’t notice much humidity, while someone from an arid southwestern state may take more notice in the humidity.
If the trade winds are blowing, which they normally do, the breeze helps to keep you comfortable in the humid environment.
Do I need to be concerned about rain in Kauai during the winter months?
As previously mentioned, the north and east sides of the island tend to get more rain than the south and west sides of the islands. If you plan to stay on the south and west sides of the islands, you’ll likely minimize your chances of experiencing rain.
Is winter a good time to go to Kauai?
Are the northern Hawaiian Islands colder than the southern Hawaiian Islands?
There’s perhaps just a few degrees difference between the extremes, but nothing drastic. If you flew from one island to the other, you probably wouldn’t notice a difference. Review the above temperature charts for Kauai, the northernmost Hawaiian Island, to the Big Island, the southernmost Hawaiian Island for comparison. Note that there’s very little difference.
