Map and Directions
Here are the directions from the Kauai Lihue airport to our Prince Kuhio Condominiums.
We are in a tropical climate so it is wise to dispose of your garbage before retiring for the evening. The dumpsters are located behind the pool.
Local Music and Television
For those who like Hawaiian music, there are several good FM radio stations like 98.9. Check out Channel 3 for a nice video of island places and activities. Channel 12 for weather, surf and tide.
Need Rental Stuff
If you arrive on island and find yourself in need of rental
equipment such as wheel chairs, baby cribs, strollers, rollaway
beds or beach accessories you can call Ready Rentals on Kauai
at 823-8008 (http://www.readyrentals.com).
Don't be Bugged
Kauai is a tropical climate and even though the complex is sprayed regularly, we still get visits by those tiny critters looking for a snack. You can help reduce this problem by wiping up crumbs regularly and taking out the trash in the evening.
Visit the Lobby
If you are interested in checking out the reading material in the front lobby, there are books you can borrow or brochures on activities. We highly recommend the Menu guides and the "101 Things To Do" guide. If you really want a complete guide to the island, we recommend you purchase "The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook" available around the island and even at Wal-Mart.
Courtesy toward other Guests
Please refrain from smoking and please keep the noise down after 9:00 PM in the stairwells or from the walkways.
Please keep your children from running or making noises in the passageways or stair areas. Children should not play in these areas for their own safety and as a courtesy to other guests.
Since bedrooms are located next to passageways, please try to keep the noise volume down in these areas. Strict quiet hours must be observed between 11:00 PM to 7:30 AM daily.
Please do not hang garments, rugs, towels or other objects on
lanai railings or other places visible from any outside areas.
Please do not shake or throw debris over the lanai railings.
There are 2 beaches out front. The East beach is called Prince
Kuhio and is smaller. It is good for snorkeling because there
are more turtles in this area but the snorkeling is not recommended
for beginners. The West beach is called Lawai and is top rated for
snorkeling and swimming. It is also great for surfing. Access this
beach from the far west end where the beach narrows because there are
fewer rocks in the water making entry easier.
Please be careful and:
If Cut by Coral
The rocks (or coral) out front and in the water all over the island is sometimes sharp and if it cuts you, the wound may not hear very quickly. Here are some things you can do:
For minor cuts, gently pull the edges of the skin open and remove embedded coral either by rinsing or using tweezers. Scrub directly inside the cut with clean gauze or a cloth soaked in clean, fresh water. Press on the wound to stop bleeding.
If bleeding persists, or the edges of a wound are jagged or gaping, you likely will need stitches. Taping a cut shut is often an effective alternative, but may leave a more visible scar than suturing. It is not true that using povidone-iodine or other iodine solutions to wash coral cuts will cause coral to grow in the wound. Coral is a marine animal; it can never grow inside the human body.
For large cuts, fever, or any other signs of infection or illness
after coral contact, please see a doctor.
