Single Condo Listings=[edit]

Given the presumably large number of places to stay on Kauai, do we want to have listings for individual condos? The most recent add was from an owner of a single condo. -- Colin 23:43, 6 Apr 2005 (EDT)

That's a tough call-- it really is one of the more popular ways to stay on the islands, probably second only to staying in a big resort. I don't know if only listing condo companies is somehow "better" but we don't want to be a phonebook either. I say leave it and lets see where it goes. If it gets out of control we might want to revisit the issue, but otherwise I see no reason to descriminate againsts individual listings... Majnoona 12:29, 7 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Exaggeration[edit]

Under Sleep it says:

The "windward" side, especially the north coast can get up to twice rain than the sunny south coast.

This is a gross exaggeration. Here are rain data from "World Climate", from actual weather station measurements, for Princeville, on the North Shore:

and Kaluahonu, on the south shore:

The yearly rainfall for the North Shore Location is 86.1, and for the south shore location 75.5. Hardly "Twice".

I think this comment should be deleted.

By using a station close to the popular tourist destination of Poipu you can clearly see that "twice" is not a "gross exaggeration" when compared to Princeville.

It is pretty common knowledge that throughout Hawaii the leeward sides of the island get less rain than the windward sides due to the generally prevailing weather patterns.

Talk[edit]

The talk section was redundant and incorrect to boot.

I removed it. There is already a hawaiian words section in the main article in which the words are correctly spelled.

Uhh... why? Legally speaking, you've already licensed them to Wikitravel and can't take them back, although we'll give you the benefit of the doubt if you missed all the warnings about this. Jpatokal 21:53, 1 April 2009 (EDT)
