Golf: There are two championship 18-hole courses available near the resort: The Kihuana Golf Course and the prestigious Poipu Bay Resort Course. Guests need to arrange with the individual courses for tee times. Within driving distance are several other courses in Princeville, Kalaheo, and Kapaa.
Island Activities: For the shoppers there are some very nice boutiques in the Poipu Village Shopping Center just East on Poipu Road and at the round-a-bout with Kukui'ula Shopping Village. There are also boutique shops at the surrounding resorts, e.g., Hyatt, Sheraton and the Marriott. Food shopping is nearby at the Big Save supermarket in Koloa, just a couple of miles up the bypass road. If you are energetic and want some exercise Kauai offers a great series of hikes and drives, some with breathtaking views. Try the hike along the beach and cliffs east past the Hyatt. It is about 4 miles and the reward is a wonderful white sand beach. There is a spectacular hike/drive up the Waimea Canyon (the grand canyon of the Pacific). At the end of the road hike the trail about 4 miles which will take you to a lookout over the Napali Coast. Also refer to the Kauai Guide Book located in the house for more fun things to do. The Hyatt also has a wonderful island Luau once a week complete with Hawaiian entertainment. Call for reservations.
Restaurants: Brennecke's restaurant is a great place for lunch or dinner at the beach; good burgers, fish and drinks. They have a great crab meal for dinner. Don’t forget Lapperts’ ice cream for a real treat. It’s fresh made in Hanapepe and definitely a landmark destination. They are located throughout the island: Hanapepe, Poipu (just a miles or so down Poipu Road at the round-a-bout), Kapaa, Princeville, Hanalei, etc.
When you want to get dressed up and go to a really nice restaurant there are three at the Hyatt resort next door that are definitely world class. It's just East down Poipu Rd. from the condo. Incidentally getting dressed up in Kauai for a guy entails a nice pair of shorts and a breezy Hawaiian shirt and sandals. The ladies usually wear something slinky and cool with heels. Get her a nice lei for the occasion (Star Market or in Koloa at the Big Save). We really enjoy the Hyatt’s Ilima Terrace restaurant (especially Sunday brunch), but there are two others just as nice.
