The volcanic island of Kauai
is over 5 million years old, but the town of Koloa as we know it today is less than 200 years old. It was actually one of the first plantations in all of the Hawaiian Islands.
The old plantation buildings have been remodelled into the shops, galleries, and restaurants. In today's "Old Town Koloa" shoppers stroll under the shady canopy of huge monkey pod trees. Old Koloa Town is the best place to get a slice of local history. This historic district of Koloa has retained some of the old farm structures, enabling visitors to glimpse the ghosts of the town’s plantation past. Staying in your Owner Direct vacation rental accommodation the curious and adventurous will not be disappointed by these opportunities to celebrate Koloa's past.

The “Spouting Horn,” a bursting upward stream of water, can be most closely compared to a geyser, yet it is a one-of-a kind phenomenon that is sure to please the young and old in your traveling group. The ocean water shooting up into the air is actually coming from a pressurized underwater lava tube, and the forceful expulsion of water produces a loud gushing sound. Kids should be interested to know that according to traditional Hawaiian folklore, this sound is the voice of Kaikapu, the lizard goddess. The surrounding waters are home to dolphins and whales, so make sure you tear your eyes away from Spouting Horn for at least a few moments to watch for wildlife.
