Kapaa Kauai Hawaii
Budget Honeymoon in Kauai in December?

I’m looking for affordable accommodations near Kapaa Hawaii in early December for my new wife and I. We’ve never been to Hawaii, and have never done the whole vacation rental thing. I’m not sure whether to do a hotel, resort, vacation home rental, or studio rental! Obviously we want to be away from crowds, but don’t want to have to worry about cleaning up after ourselves (as home rentals don’t have daily maids).

At the same time, privacy is a major thing. Not sure if there’s nice rooms at uncrowded resorts/hotels. I’m trying to spend under a hundred dollars per night. It seems that vacation rentals’ cleaning fees end up making the total cost similar to hotel rooms.

I also hear that food is expensive, so we’re looking for something with a kitchen, so that we have that option if necessary. Thanks for any advice!

There are lots of places to stay in Kauai. My wife and I stayed in the Outrigger Waipaloui Resort and Spa. We bought our honeymoon trip as a package on Orbitz.com. The Outrigger is in Kapaa and there is a Safeway grocery store across the street. My wife and I bought some food and since our room had a full kitchen, cooked a lot of meals thereby saving some money. I don’t think the Outrigger will be less than $100 per night but you can see what the price is on the vacation package. My wife and I went in July which is an expensive time and we got our tickets, hotel and rental car for less than $1,600 per person. This was flying out of Cincinnati and staying at the hotel for 6 nights.
