Kauai Bed and Breakfasts Recommendations

A Bed and Breakfast, Kauai's popular cheap and cheery form of accommodation, is usually part of a private home that has rooms which are rented out. As the name suggests, breakfast comes included in the price of the room and may range from anywhere between a simple continental to a full english. Bathrooms are usually shared with other guests, although sometimes rooms with en suites are available. On Kauai, B and B owners tend to be friendly and willing to help. They can give you advice on where to go, what to see and how to get there.

Most insist on a minimum stay of three nights and some may allow you to opt out of breakfast for a cheaper rate. Double rooms vary in price with cottages and studios being at the top end of the spectrum. Some of Kauai's BBs are listed below.
