Kapa

February 26th, 2015 by Lindsey

Ooo this looks like a good one!

http://www.pbshawaii.org/ourproductions/presents.php

Do you know what kapa is? I’m sure you’ve seen it before but you may not know what it is. Perhaps I have sparked your curiosity though, eh?

Airing tonight on PBS Hawaii is Hawaiian Masterpieces: Ka Hana Kapa . Airing at 9pm HST. The preview is the link above in this post, and I wonder if you can view the whole thing online, perhaps once it has already aired. I think that is how it works. Watch the couple minute preview to get a dose of kapa education, and if you’d like, tune in later to see the full episode.

In other news, have a happy Thursday. Here a gorgeous plant I took a picture of the other day. I’d say Happy Aloha Friday, but it’s a wee bit premature!

Vacation Rental Areas

Anahola / Aliomanu

Now I realize that the last activity I wrote about was in Lihue. And while I don’t normally recommend staying on the South-East side of the island, sometimes it’s handy to be close to an activity you plan to attend. And while I don’t recommend staying in Lihue (it’s loud and busy and not usually private), I can recommend a great vacation rental home in Anahola, north of Lihue: Anahola Aloha Beach House.

So what makes this beach house special? Well, the view is probably its most dominant feature. And I’m not just talking about the interior view of amazing architecture and aesthetically pleasing design. No, I’m referring to the fact that this house is directly on the beach. Yep, that’s right. Your view is of palm trees and sculptured lawns reaching down to the white sandy beach and crystal clear waters.

At this beach home, you will be an extremely short walk away from Anahola Bay. This is a wonderful beach for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, and other water sports. That’s because there is a protective outlying reef that keeps the water from being too choppy. There is even a lifeguard on duty at Anahola Beach, though that is closer to the public beach side. And from the sand itself, you will have an amazing view of the mountains of Kalalea.

Of course, the interior of the home is just as important as its location. After all, the location can be perfect but, if you don’t have a comfortable place to relax, you won’t enjoy your vacation nearly enough. And we do want you to enjoy your stay. So, let’s talk about amenities.

This vacation home is comfortable, modern, has custom wooden features, and has an amazing kitchen. The kitchen is filled with white appliances that perfectly off-set the wooden cupboards. And everything else you’ll need to eat a meal in the home (from cookware and utensils to dishes and a large dining room table with linens) are included. So you’ll have no problem making meals and enjoying the conveniences of this modern house.

There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, meaning there is plenty of space for a large family or a group of friends to come and spend the week. Two of the bedrooms are suits that include a King-sized bed and full bathroom. The other two rooms have queen-sized or Double beds and they share a bathroom. There is also a sofa-sleeper in the living room, so you can bring extra friends. In total, this vacation home can sleep up to 11 people comfortably. But wait – there’s more.

There is a living room where you can relax and unwind during the day, but there is also an entertainment room that has a flat screen TV with DVD player. And while there are TVs with DVD players in all the guest rooms, this is a great room for getting together for a movie night.

And don’t worry about running out of clean clothes. This home has its own washer and dryer, so you won’t have to pack so much stuff. (This will leave plenty of room in your luggage for souvenirs and will also allow you to clean all of your clothes before you go home, meaning less work once you return to your real life.) There is also a private hot tub on the lanai, so you can relax under the stars each night while sipping wine and dreaming of a quiet life.

And, this is the best part, you can stay here for only $3500 a week! This means that each person on this trip will only have to pay $45/night to stay at a mansion home with a hot tub on an amazing Kauai beach. Seriously! Finding a hotel like this would cost $1000 a night! Can you say “Amazingly Good Deal!” (Of course, this is the price during October only. During the summer and during Thanksgiving week, the price is $4500, and during Christmas/New Years, the price is $5500. So plan your trip accordingly.)

Now, can you see any reason why you wouldn’t want to stay here? I can’t. So come and enjoy yourself… and bring your friends!

Anini / Kalihiwai

When most people think of Hawaii, they think of the beach. On Kauai there are many gorgeous beaches to go to! I want to shine the spotlight on Anini Beach today… it is a favorite of mine and of my friends. If you have children, this is a great beach for them too.

Location

Anini Beach is located just southeast of Princeville, so if you are staying in Princeville or Hanalei, you should definitely go to this beach. It is located on Anini Road, on your right hand side of the road. If you are looking for it, you will not miss it. There is a home at the end of the road, but right on past it to get to the beach.

What To Expect

If you think a beach is just a beach–think again. Anini Beach has something for everyone, I think. It is very kid-friendly there. I have seen children as young as 4 years old learn how to snorkel there. The reef is only six or so feet deep, so it is easy to see turtles and fish! The beach is calm. It does not get big waves which makes it great for the little ones to have fun in the water. I have seen kids gain confidence in swimming and snorkeling there, and I have even seen some folks teaching their children how to get up on a long board out there (again, with no waves).

What I like about Anini Beach (add it to the list) is the ample shade trees. I like to lay out in the sun every now and then, but there are other times when I seek refuge from the sun’s ray. There are shade trees but also there are climbing trees! How fun is that?! One I know of hangs out over the water (it’s not high up) and it is fun to jump in off of it. Good times…

There are picnic tables in the area so people are able to enjoy a meal while on the beach. There are other facilities such as showers and bathrooms. Oh and there is a lifeguard on duty. By now I should have convinced you to go to this beach and see for yourself how great it is!

Haena

Well, I am still on cloud 9 a little bit for our Island rankings on Travel + Leisure Magazine’s Best of 2014 List. On that note, I thought I might share about another great beach on Kauai, Kee Beach!

Kee Beach is in Haena, on Kauai’s north shore. The beach starts the beginning of the Napali Coast, and Kee has a reef that keeps it inclusive, if you will. The reef makes for great snorkeling and swimming adventures. The water is clear, clean, and shallow for most of it. More good news: this beach is great for children and families. There is a lifeguard on duty, and there are restrooms and showers.

Where is this beautiful beach? It’s at the end of Highway 560. There is parking available, but know that this parking lot is also used by Kalalau trail hikers. If you prefer to hike, this is a great base camp; if you prefer to go in the water, go out and have a good time in the water or simply soaking in the sun and the view. Let me tell you though, the sand on this beach is divine! It is extra fine, which I love.

Hanalei

Alright, so you are looking for something special, something different, something new to do on Valentine’s evening. Couple’s night out? Let me share with you an event that came across my path!

Momona Beats presents DJ Dan on Valentine’s weekend. Friday, February 13th at Eleven44 they are having a show. Then on Saturday, February 14th at Tahiti Nui they will be performing.

Tickets are $15 per person as a presale, and are available online at this link: http://www.momonabeats.com/new-events/. If you make your decision to come last minute, at the door tickets are $20.

I haven’t been to Eleven44 before (to be honest and all), but I do know about Tahiti Nui! Here is their sign out front, so you know what to look for, despite the night starting at 9pm…

Tahiti Nui

Check out the website I linked in this article to find out more about DJ Dan and Momona Beats. This is for adults aged 21 and over, so please plan accordingly.

Poipu

If you have kids, sometimes it’s hard to find things to do that are new, interesting, and fun for them. That is especially true around the holidays. While adults often like to attend parties, go to nice restaurants, and see the Christmas lights, kids aren’t always that interested in those things. Parties are just old people talking, restaurants are just opportunities to behave and sit quietly, and lights are cool for a while… and then they’re just lights.

At least, that has been my experience with the kids I know. Maybe your kids are different. If that’s the case, good! Every child is different. But if your kids are like the ones I know, then this holiday reading schedule is for you.

It’s very important to read to children. It gives them a better vocabulary, teaching them that reading is fun, and stimulates their brains and creativity. So when there is an opportunity to have someone read to your children, my recommendation is to take it. After all, the books will be new and fun and most authors who come in to read will make a real event of it.

And this holiday season, there will be two more opportunities for you and your children to enjoy a special holiday reading series. (I say two more because I heard about it through a friend and her children who went to the first reading. They told me to mention it here, and so I am!)

Wednesday (December 18th) and Tuesday (December 24th) there will be reading times outside the Coldwell Banker Makai Properties office. (That’s in Poipu at The Shops at Kukuiula.) Both days, the readings will begin at 3:30pm and go for a little over an hour. And both days are absolutely FREE!

On December 18th, Mark Huff will be reading. He is the author of the books “King of the Beach” and “The Sheltering Place.” And on December 24th, Monika Mira will be reading. She is the author of “The Complete Hawaiian Reef Fish Coloring Book.” Both authors will be around for book signings if you want to purchase some of their work, and each author will be reading their stories as well as their favorite holiday stories to the kids.

And, to make it even better, there will be ornament decorating after the December 24th reading! So if you want to go out on Christmas Eve for a holiday reading, this would be the one to attend! ☺

I’ve always loved book readings. After all, I’ve always loved books. And if you haven’t been to a holiday book reading in the past, I encourage you to come for a while. You will truly enjoy it.

Princeville

Kauai is a great place to come and stay. Some folks come and stay, and stay, and stay and simply cannot go away. Kauai has a certain draw to it that people cannot get enough of. I get it. I love Kauai for all that it is. If you are wanting to come and stay, like a vacation, do it! The perfect one bedroom, two bath vacation rental condo is just right. It hosts a king sized bed, fully equipped kitchen and laundry services.

The Cliffs 9201 is a modern, clean styled condo with magnificent oceanfront views. I think there are extra windows in this place just so you can enjoy and see more of that brilliant blue water. Am I right or am I right?

Cliffs 9201 used Dec 2014

This is a very desirable condo rental. Click on the link above and see the pictures for yourself. With ceiling fans, the views, the space, the accommodations…. I could go on and on and on. With the view you will catch some great sunrises and sunsets. It is very romantic I might add! For one week it is just $1050 starting plus taxes and a cleaning fee. Seven nights, that’s starting as low as 150 per night. On Kauai? I think you get the picture of what I am getting at. This is a fabulous deal.

It is located on Kauai’s North Shore in Princeville, which is full of fun things to do. Hanalei Bay is just a few miles away, and the water is well, right there as well. Beaches are nearby; after all you can see the ocean from your room.

Check out the Cliffs condo 9201 for the Hawaiian experience you have been dreaming of going on. I think it makes for a great honeymoon spot, anniversary spot, or simply a couple’s getaway time. Even with a young child this condo is very comfortable and you would be able to get just as much out of your stay.
