Assuming you are renting a car, two weeks on The Big Island, split between the west side and the east side, and one week on Kauai.

I answered on the other thread, but for clarity's sake, I'll repeat here:

I would spend two weeks on the Big Island split approximately 75/25 between a west and east side base respectively, and a week on Kauai. The BI because of its size almost needs to be thought of as two islands.

It would help if you told us more about who is coming, what you plan to do, your general taste, your budget, and especially the month of the year. In general I would go with Sheaʻs formula, but there could be reasons to spend more time east depending on what you tell us.

Thereʻs no one right answer for everyone, and you told us basically nothing about yourself here, so itʻs hard to know what would be best for you.
