We are going to Hawaii at the end of July, spending half the time in Oahu and half the time in Kauai. We've been to Oahu before so we have a good idea of where we want to eat and visit, but we're having trouble deciding between two locations in Kauai.
We don't want to have to eat out for every meal, so both of our options include a kitchen. The first is a place in the Princeville Ocean Resort Villas and the second is in the Waipouli Beach Resort. Both have their pros and cons but in the end come out pretty evenly in our minds, so we need something to help make the final decision. The Princeville location is a something of a known quantity for us because we stayed in its sister property in Kaanapali, Maui (and loved it).
Like I mentioned, we don't want to eat out every meal and would rather pick up something fresh yummy at farmer's markets and/or small local places to bring home and enjoy with a salad or greens. We're not opposed to driving and will definitely be visiting different locations around the island during our stay, but in your opinion, where will it be easier to find markets and delicious take-out–Princeville area or Waipouli area?
Those who live in or have visited Kauai, given the option to stay in Princeville or Waipouli, which would you choose and why?
I'd really appreciate your help!
