Sept/Oct 2014 trip planning...Hale Nani Mala?


I am starting to plan a trip to Kauai at the end of September this year. It will be my husband, myself, a 6 year old and an 18 month old. I found the listing for Hale Nani Mala on vrbo http://www.vrbo.com/379263 and it looks great but we don't know the island. I don't really know where to stay, what is good and what to expect. I like the idea of a house or condo with 2 bedrooms. I also like the price of this one for the week. Any other suggestions for somewhere to stay?

We've been a few times to Oahu & and once to the Big Island but thought it would be good to see somewhere else.

What do you suggest? Is this in a good location? Has anyone else stayed here (there are 6 reviews on vrbo)? I've read a bunch of north vs south discussions already and would love to go to the north shore but I think we'll just do a day trip at this point.

I'd love any suggestions / recommendations.

We stayed there in 2012 and absolutely loved it! There are a few cosmetic things that they may have fixed since then. There was a torn screen leading from the master bath to the outdoors but really it is an amazing place to stay. We often dream of going back. The location is wonderful too. You can walk right out your door and be at the beach in just a few minutes in either direction. It's very close to the Hyatt and Shipwreck beach. Oh, one other thing - you may want to check to see if they fixed the hot tub part of the pool. It didn't really matter to us but if you're looking forward to using it you might just mention it to them. Everything else was perfect.
