If you are feeling overwhelmed with planning a trip to Kauai, be sure to contact Stephanie Michel for some helpful information. She has lived on Kauai for many years and keeps up with the best things to do in Paradise. Many of my Honu Point Vacation Rental guests have used Stephanie as a valuable resource. She offers tips that you will not find in any guidebook, allowing you to make the most of your time and money on Kauai.
With fifteen years of experience, Stephanie constantly keeps in touch with all that is going on around Kauai. She has created a list of Kauai’s “Top Picks” which includes her favorite things to do and see, favorite places to watch the sunset, best places to buy groceries (including Vegan items), best shopping, best music/dancing, best spa, best shave ice, as well as best local hole-in-the-wall places to eat, fine dining, Farmer’s Markets and the best swimming/snorkeling beaches around the island. The list is divided into the four major areas of the island so you may utilize your time rather than spend hours on the highway. All of this inside information can be yours for just $35.00.
Stephanie also offers a personal concierge service which is available throughout your stay on the Garden Island. She is available to answer questions and fulfill your needs. You will receive a .pdf file that can be accessed on any device. Your itinerary will include links, directions, timelines, reminders and all you need to know in order to enjoy your time on island with as little stress as possible. The charge for this service is $500.00.
If you are looking for a Private Boat Charter or Air Tour for your entire group, Stephanie also lists some of these options on her website. Warning: having the whole boat or aircraft to yourself doesn’t come cheap.
Here are just a sample of the 5 Star reviews I found for Stephanie. I wasn’t surprised because every one of my guests who have used Stephanie as their Kauai concierge were extremely pleased with her service. She will spoil you rotten:
Utilizing Kauai by Stephanie was honestly the best part of our holiday vacation to Hawaii! Stephanie created a custom itinerary for the trip that involved hiking, sailing, surfing, snorkeling, helicopter riding, whale watching and of course local dining. With her local expertise and dedication to getting us to experience the most that we possibly could, Stephanie considered traffic, travel times, weather patterns, operation hours and our special requests to put together our trip. Our group of five adults literally followed the plan without any worries or having to google. I knew after the very first meal, that she has excellent standards and has developed a great reputation with her vendors. At each rental or vendor check-in, the locals were very complimentary of Stephanie and that meant a great deal to our group. Mahalo Stephanie!

Don’t you love it when you have a friend that is a local when you visit a new place so you can maximize your time and not get caught by the tourist traps? Better yet, you are let in on the local “secrets”. Stephanie is all that and more! Wow, she put together a terrific itinerary for our family of 5 and on top of that was so gracious and helpful when we had a delay in arriving! She was able to make appropriate changes to our schedule so we did not miss a thing! She was incredibly helpful, detailed, professional and just all around terrific. I wear the “travel agent” hat when our family travels and that can be a bit stressful. Let Stephanie take that job on. She is terrific and her on line guide is very helpful-worth every penny. Mahalo Stephanie!!

Stephanie was an incredible help in planning our trip to Kauai! We like to stay busy on vacation and Stephanie helped us maximize our time on the island by planning activities and mapping out our days based on things we wanted to see and do. She is so thoughtful in providing recommendations and will plan things based on your interests and the type of vacation you are looking to have. From making dining recommendations to suggesting the best hiking and beach locations and booking tours (we did ATV, Helicopter and Rafting) – Stephanie has it all covered when you want a stress free vacation planning experience. We are so glad we connected with Stephanie and can’t imagine a better experience and vacation thanks to her help!!
