Keiki (Kay-kee) is the Hawaiian word for child and is interpreted as “little one”
Visiting Kauai with Kids?
Kauai with keiki showcases low cost and at leisure opportunities for play and exploration on The Garden Isle of Kauai. It was created as a resource for visitors to Kauai who are bringing children, given from a LOCAL perspective, L.O.C.A.L. meaning
Loving Our Community and Lifestyle
We believe that if you are either visiting Kauai or a resident (Kamaaina), we are all locals of Kauai and also of our own communities.
Ask the L.O.C.A.L.’s!
The honeymoon phase is over. Well, maybe not entirely but this trip you will now bring along your bundle of joy (or joys) that you have created out of the love you have for each other. Keiki is the Hawaiian word for child and is interpreted as “little one”. Yes these little ones can bring us a joy and happiness that we have never experienced otherwise. They teach us things about our character that we didn’t even know. They challenge us in new ways and bring out our biggest fears, one being traveling with keiki!
Kauai with Keiki blog is written by a mother and father of two, ages 4 and 6, both teachers with over 12 years of experience each who like to be prepared and have a plan. We frequently travel back to the mainland to visit family and friends. Upon returning from our latest trip in which we visited 4 different states, we realized that we were craving information on what to do with our keiki in these areas. We wanted up to date information from the inside perspective, written by a family that actually experienced it. We wanted suggestions on where to go, where to eat, and what to bring. We wanted to learn about the community where we were. We created this website as a resource for families who are looking for an inside perspective on where to go and what to do on Kauai.
Kauai with Keiki would like to share our Aloha Spirit with all who visit. As Hawaiians it is our kuleana to teach others about the Hawaiian culture and our way of life. In order to keep Kauai, Kauai we need to emphasize the love we have for our island and each other. Community, no matter where you are from is possible when we are thinking about others and looking forward at the bigger picture. We live and love where we are because of our love for eachother and the many blessings we have. We are L.O.C.A.L (Loving Our Community And Lifestyle). Therefore we show support for one another by being stewards of our land and by paying it forward whenever the opportunity arises. We are thankful for being able to live on the beautiful island of Kauai and grateful for the many good people we have surrounded ourselves with.
For us, our keiki is the legacy that we leave. Therefore educating and sharing what we know to be “pono” becomes our bridge to future generations. If you are truly L.O.C.A.L then you provide others with the knowledge (mana’o) about the place you love most. We are hoping that with this knowledge (mana’o) we can help others to find special experiences here on Kauai. We are also hoping to instill a sense of respect to the island and its people by sharing in the Aloha Spirit that is prevalent here on Kauai. The purpose of this website is to help others understand the beauty of Kauai and to inspire and encourage others to see how important it is for us to keep this experience alive for our keiki and the future generations.
We invite you to share in our journey. Here are the things we do with our Keiki and the places we love to go again and again. There are play and place based opportunities for learning everywhere. Take advantage of some low cost and at leisure options. Go Explore!
