Why Not Kauai for Summer Vacation 2016?


Kauai, with its endless beaches and beautiful blue ocean and skies.  Summer 2016, and you, deserve a special Kauai vacation.

It is not too early to start planning your summer 2016 vacation.  Before you know it, school will be out or you will be longing for something different from your 9-to-5 routine.  Why not Kauai for summer 2016 vacation?

Kauai is a most desirable vacation spot, with its beaches (nearly 60), hiking trails, great food and restaurants, and all sorts of outdoor activities from ziplining to kayaking to helicopter tours to simply relaxing on a warm sandy beach, caressed by tropical trade winds.

At Hula Now, we have the ideal Kauai vacation rental for you to fully enjoy your Kauai summer vacation.  Hula Now rentals at Islander on the Beach, Kauai Beach Resort, and Kapaa Sands offer units for 1 to 4 people.  You can enjoy an oceanfront unit, some with full kitchens, or the full resort experience.  Hula Now has oceanfront, ocean view, and resort and garden view rental units. You can view all our Kauai vacation rental units and book securely on line 24/7 at

So come, be part of our ohana for a least a while on the beautiful island of  Kauai.  Listen to the ocean, watch the turtles and dolphins swim and frolic, sip a tropical drink with the sun setting, enjoy the peace and plenty that is Kauai.

Wishing you warm Aloha!


Summer means the beach.  Come visit and build your own sand castle!  Formal attire not required.

How can you have summer without a beach vacation?  Toes buried in the sand.  Endless waves lulling you and calming you.  Puka shells by the handful for the taking.  Beach glass finds.  Warm sunshine, cool trade winds.

Summer just is not summer without the beach.

Did you know that Kauai has 60 named beaches, all of them public?  With so many beautiful choices, a day at a Kauai beach is a day at the beach….no jocking for a spot for your towels, lots of room to spread out.  Add in surfing, swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, and basking and you have the essence of summer.

It is not too early to start planning your summer beach getaway.  Hula Now offers a variety of Kauai vacation rental condos that sleep 1 to 4 guests in full, queen, or king beds.  Choose from oceanfront, ocean view, and resort/garden view units.  Some of our Kauai vacation rentals have full kitchens, too.

Come, stay at our ohana and experience summer as summer was meant to be, slower paced, full of sunshine, and lots of sand to play in.

Wishing you warm Aloha!



Some local dudes enjoying a beer.  Too bad that they are not enjoying Kauai also!

Kauai is a foodie’s paradise with many farm-to-table dining options.  If you like good fresh food, Kauai is the ideal place for you.

Certainly when you think “Kauai”, you think Kauai coffee and Kauai rum, but Kauai also has a great brew pub in Lihue that you may not have visited.

The Kauai Beer Company is located at 4265 Rice Street, Lihue, and is open Wednesday through Saturday for lunch, dinner, and general beer tasting.  Their menus are interesting and playful (when have you had beer-battered avocado wedges or steamed breadfruit in a salad?) and feature local products, including fresh-baked organic bread.  Several beers are always available on tap, along with bottled beers, cider, and wine.

Rice Street in Lihue and the Kauai Beer Company are easy drives — about 7 miles or so —  from Hula Now Kauai vacation rental units.  After a day of sight-seeing, snorkeling, or sailing, why not stop in for a drink and a meal? You can see all Hula Now vacation rentals at, where you can book on line 24/7 for your convenience.  Hula Now has real-time booking to help ensure you can book the exact vacation rental you want.

We hope to see you on island soon and would be interested in learning about your experience at Kauai Beer Company and other favorite places to enjoy the bounty of Kauai.

Wishing you warm Aloha!


What would be nice here is a restaurant…and now Lava Lava Beach Club has opened in this spot.  Listen to the waves while you dine with your toes in the sand.

How does breakfast on the beach — sun slowing rising, day beginning, coffee just right — sound to you?  Or maybe lunch after a morning of whale counting or hiking, watching the waves and the windsurfers?  Or maybe drinks and pupus right on the beach, you relaxing in a big lounge chair?  Sounds terrific!

Hula Now welcomes Lava Lava Beach Club to the neighborhood.  Located at 420 Papaloa Road, Kapaa, the Lava Lava Beach Club, or LLBC, offers “toes in the sand dining and drinking”.  This new eatery is within easy walking distance of our Kauai vacation rentals at Islander on the Beach (next door) and Kapaa Sands (down the street), and short drive from Kauai Beach Resort.  With the closing of the Coconut Marketplace and Eggbert’s for reconstruction, guests now have a local and convenient option for breakfast — and you can dine in your bikini or board shorts.  LLBC also offers lunch, pupus and drinks, dinner, and dessert.  With several hundred seats, some right on the beach, and a tasty menu selection, LLBC is a much-needed addition to the east side of Kauai.

Why not reserve a Kauai vacation rental condo with Hula Now and enjoy our brand of warm Aloha? We have oceanfront, ocean view, garden view, and resort view rental units with full, queen, or king beds that put you in the heart of the Coconut Coast and all points north, south, and west on Kauai.  You can book securely on line at anytime at

Welcome, Lava Lava Beach Club!

Wishing you warm Aloha!



Get to a Hula Now Kauai Vacation Rental Anyway You Can This Spring. Adventure Awaits You!

It is not too early to plan your spring getaway!  If you are a first-time visitor or one of our many repeat guests, the spring months of March, April, and May offer a myriad of things to do and places to see.

In March, celebrate Prince Kuhio at a free admission event in Anahola: The Anahola Prince Kuhio Day Celebration, March 19, from 11 AM to 5 PM, with cultural displays and demonstrations, local foods, crafts, and artwork.  On March 26, enjoy Kilauea Art Night with local arts, great food trucks, and entertainment.

In April, visit Grove Farm for its annual Old Time Game Day.  Go back in time to a simpler era and enjoy family fun.

May brings the 38th Annual Visitors Industry Charity Walk, open to all.  The 2.9 mile walk starts at 7:30 AM at the historic County Building in Lihue and winds its way through Lihue, passing many scenic and historic spots.

If you are a first-time visitor to Kauai, you will delight discovering our 60 golden and white sand beaches.  Visit Wailua Falls, right off Kuhio Highway and close to all our Kauai vacation rental units.  You may remember this scenic spot from the opening credits of Fantasy Island on television!  Make sure you visit one of the National Botanic Gardens on Kauai, not only for the connection to Jurassic Park but also for the incredible display of native and rare tropical plants and flowers.  In March and early April, it may be possible to spot whales from your lanai or from the beach.  An excellent spot for whale watching is Kilauea Lighthouse; you can volunteer to be an official whale counter for the morning!

Repeat guests know the incredible range of activities from bicycling to hiking to zip lining to snorkeling to sunset catamaran trips to fabulous dining.  One fun event that should not be missed by first-time or repeat visitors is a trip on the Kauai Plantation Railway.  This adventure includes a leisurely ride on a 1930-era train, a hike in a rainforest, a picnic lunch under a spreading tree, and the opportunity to pick your own tropical fruit dessert right from the trees.

And then, there is always the opportunity to do nothing but soak up the sun, feel the gentle tropical trade winds, listen to the waves and calls of tropical birds, and smell the lush tropical flowers!  Add a dip in the pool and you have the vacation of a lifetime.

Come, stay with Hula Now at one of our affordable luxury Kauai vacation rental condos.  You can find the perfect spot for you — oceanfront, ocean view, garden or resort view — and book safely on line at any time at

Wishing you warm Aloha!

Kauai Vacation for Thanksgiving: Start a New Tradition


This pilgrim may be wishing that the Mayflower landed on Kauai for Thanksgiving. 

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday, filled with turkey, cranberries, pies, families, and nonstop football games.  Everyone has his or her favored Thanksgiving traditions, be it creamed onions as a side dish or leftover turkey and stuffing sandwiches while watching the final bowl game of the day.

Why not start a new tradition?  Can you picture yourself enjoying a football game at a tiki bar on the beach, tropical drink in hand with warm sun and tropical trade winds caressing you?  Maybe you never considered a Kauai vacation for Thanksgiving and Hula Now wants to entice you to come to Kauai for Thanksgiving.  Premium units are available for automatic booking at any time at We have Kauai vacation rentals that sleep 1 to 4 guests in ocean front, ocean view, and resort view settings.

And once the last bowl game has ended on the mainland, it is still early enough on Kauai for a game of touch football on the beach, a leisurely Thanksgiving dinner, or even another round at the tiki bar to celebrate your team’s victory.

Wishing  you a Happy Thanksgiving and warm Aloha!
