  • My Top Five Customer Service Wins in Kaua’i

    This is my final blog post on our recent trip to the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i. It is a look at some of the businesses that impressed me with the service or food they provide to their customers. First on the list is the valet parking service at the Sheraton in Poi’pu. These guys treated…

  • Condo Rentals on Kaua’i

    After leaving the comfort of the Sheraton at Poi’Pu we headed north to a privately owned condo and then a condo managed by a professional management team. There were significant differences in the way the two condos were operated.   The view from both condos was beautiful partly because they are situated right on a golf…

  • Sheraton Poipu, Kaua’i

    While on our recent family trip to the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i we had the opportunity to stay in a number of accommodations. The first place we stayed was the Sheraton in Poi’Pu. After the Sheraton we went north on the island to the community of Hanalei where we stayed in a privately owned condo, another…

  • Grand Hyatt Poi’pu Kaua’i

    The Internet service here on Kaua’i has been more than a little unreliable so I have not logged about our accommodations as much as I had intended. As such, I have a number of blog posts in development; one about the Sheraton in Poi’pu, another about the Westin at Princeville, and one more about staying…

  • Building Sand Castles at Poi’Pu Beach on Kaua’i

    I spent the morning with the family at the beach in Poi’Pu. We did a little sandcastle building today. I got bored of just sitting on the beach so, with Blonde Bear and Brown Bear helping me, I decided to build a bit of a sand-sculpture. It took us longer than we had anticipated but, we…

  • Robinsmith Family Vacation; Bellingham to Seatac to Kaua’i

    Seeing as I am unable to upload my photos from the first leg of the Robinsmith Family Vacation to my blog I created an iMovie and loaded that onto YouTube. Yes, that manly narrator’s voice is mine. Hope you enjoy.

  • Robinsmith Family Vacation Kaua’i; Day Four

    Our Kaua’i Family Vacation continues. Even though the weather is less than ideal (torrential showers followed by blazing hot sun) we are enjoying ourselves immensely. Early today we wandered over to the St Regis Princeville and walked the some ten thousand steps to the beach. Holy crapola it is a long way down to the…

  • Robinsmith Family Vacation Kaua’i; the Chevy Impala

    If you are going to visit the island of Kaua’i be sure to rent a car or have a car available for your use. That is unless you intend to stay in a resort and not leave the resort. Virtually everything is more than walking distance apart. We knew this before deciding to take part…

  • Robinsmith Family Vacation Kaua’i; Day Three

    So much to see, so much to do! We are loving this island. Yesterday we went out west to the Waimea Canyon. Wow. It is an awful drive up to the viewpoint but it is SO worth it. My Sweetheart said that it is one of the most inspiring places she has ever visited. I…

  • Robinsmith Family Vacation Day Two; Seattle to Kauai

    I am using my iPad for this blog update so no pics until I get my Macbook opened up. However, I wanted to share the adventure that we had in getting here to Kauai. First, security at airports. What an embarrassment. Vastly over weight grandparents and small children bending over to remove their shoes and…
