Here ya go. Some good tips. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/how...are-2013-01-28
I did two weeks in Kauai this past summer. Stayed in Hanalei, South Shore and at the Marriot Beach club Lihue-Check this place out for sure. Great place to end your trip as it's a free couple minute shuttle out of there. Beach is sweet.
I found some great private condo deals on www.vrbo.com
Great condo on the south shore. Would have to dig for the name but very reasonable and an awesome place to snorkel outside your condo. Shoot me a pm if you want more info on anything.
