A Week In Paradise

My sister and I just returned from a week in paradise! We stayed at Mauna Kai Unit 2A. It was absolutely perfect. Parking is safe and easy. The pool is directly across from the unit. The pool and surrounding area was immaculate, with comfy recliners under lush palm trees. Unit 2A sits amide lush tropical gardens, that were simply magnificent. They are a few patios off of sliding doors from the unit, with comfortable chairs and tables, where were spent a few hours just taking it all in. There was a grill, but we didn't have enough time to cook...we had too many local places to enjoy. I have some difficulty with stairs and we were very happy to find that this first floor unit has no stairs to climb. It is immaculately clean and tastefully furnished in a tropical theme. The kitchen has every appliance, pot, pan, and dish that you could imagine. There were many thoughtful touches like insulated drink bottles, boogie boards, pool floats, and a nice little library for the guests to use, as well a WIFI and many cable channels. We found a list with great suggestions for local eateries. There is a washer and dryer and a clothes line off the master bath (which is as big as bedroom.) The beds were comfortable. There is a shopping center within a 1/2 mile, that has a food court. Our first night there, we went over for supplies and a snack and were pleased to learn they have live music a few times each week, including the nigh we were there. Golf courses, one with a fabulous restaurant with a breathtaking sunset view, and beaches are close by...we saw a sea turtle the size of a manhole cover swimming up beside us...really nice. We saw most of the major attractions in a week, but I could have easily spent another week there. The airport is small and efficient and within a half hour or so of Mauna Kai. I have previously stayed in Honolulu and Maui and they are so commercial, I was disappointed. Kauai is magnificent, and is where to stay!
