Per the Berkeley Parents Board:
Baby's Away - equipment rentals

"Don't bring a stroller, there are no long paved places in Kauai to use them. It's all road or beach."

"I've heard that the north is better weather in the summer months, and the south has better weather in the winter. But you know the south is nice year round and has more baby friendly beaches ..."

"The North Shore is at it's best in the summer (June-September I think). Outside of those times it can be rainy and the surf can be rough."
