My site is laboriously
updated by me as information is relayed to me by the various vendors. Please
note that the Free Island Info is at times, difficult to keep up with as
facts can change without notice often and over the years many vendors forget
that they have the free listings, so please accept my sincere apologies
in advance for any inaccuracies :(.
I have created
many web pages to serve your needs as a cyber concierge for the Garden
Island, delivering as much needed information as possible to prepare you
for your visit. Due to the magnitude of emails along with nuisance spam
mail (that at times is difficult to control), answering each and every
email continues to be a challenge. Call or text me directly at (808) 821-1000
anytime should your email go unanswered for more than 24 hours.
I operate strictly
on a referral basis and no payment is required of you until your check-in
to the activities. No Deposits are required unless a vendor requires it
for large parties. In the majority of cases, a credit card is required
only to secure and confirm your reservation. Advanced bookings are extremely
beneficial to you and you may alter them without penalty as long as changes
are made within the terms of each individual vendor's policies. This may
vary from vendor to vendor. We cater to your specific needs and what will
fit into your budget, making your vacation dreams a reality.
Logo for Car Rental Options:
I have been referring my visitors
to this site for all these years and while it was a simple old time site,
it gets you some of the best deals (you might save up to 70%). While going
direct can net you special deals, often times they sell out of the packages
and in the end you end up paying a higher rate. I generally don't feature
ad links but I use this one for my own inter-island travel needs when I
visit my family on other islands. You'd be wise to check it out. Kauai
is not an island you want to visit without a rental car reserved in advance
f your arrival.

I have lived on
Kauai since 1974, and originally arrived on Oahu in 1953. Lucky for me,
my mother was born in Honolulu. I was born in China. I visited Kauai for
the first time in 1971. My ancestors were the first group of plantation
workers who came to work in the plantations in Kohala, on the Big Island.
My Great Grandfather eventually moved to Honolulu and opened up a coffee
stand for 5 cents a cup. He complained to King Kalakaua that the royal
guards at Iolani Palace were not paying him. Happy to report that the kind
King got most of them to pay up! I am full Chinese, but feel very Hawaiian.
I love Kauai today as much as I did back in 1974. You will fall in love
with it too! I have 4 grown adult children (they aren't children anymore
but guess they will always be my children, and a very supportive husband.
I got a grand baby in 2010! I understand what your needs are in regard
to family. I've been dabbling with my art all my life, so if you have interest,
check out the links for LilikoiArt.com.
A bit about Lilikoi: Here I am wearing my mother's
old 1950's Muu Muu showing off my hand crocheted original baskets on the
lawn of the old Coco Palms Resort, where some of the best Kauai
were held in the late 1970's. Photo taken by my husband in 1978!

Just a note:
I do take breaks daily away from the computer, though my husband would
disagree. You can always leave me a voice message or text anytime
@ (808) 821-1000. Mondays - Fridays are the best days to catch me live
but I am open for calls 7 days a week at anytime.
I have a date
with my husband every Saturday and often we add a bonus Friday night. Sometimes
I am taking a walk with Kiwi (our 1/4 English Pit & 3/4 White Lab or
she does the treadmill :). Kiwi was a service dog, a good samaritan, and
a certified pet visitor at the Garden Island Long Term care unit at our
local hospital and the Wilcox Adult Day Care in Lihue. Sadly she had to
be on sabbatical for some time now. She is missed and she misses her friends.
I learned to
swim in August 2008 so currently swim as much as possible at the YMCA so
if not in my office ... I am underwater exercising my body and brain, all
the while calming my senses. Caring for myself helps me care for you even
better. Caring for others is just a way we give back to those in need.
If you can't wait, I understand completely and apologize for missing you.
Mahalo for your kind understanding and patience :) regarding my exercise
routines and our volunteer hours for the Kauai Humane Society.
I will have
you safely tucked away in my arrival files, barring any computer crashes
if you sign into my Guest
