5 minutes' walk from the beach and the amazing oceanfront bike path. Right in Kapa'a town but a "world away". Decorated with custom design features and details to give you a feel of old Hawaii. Easy walk to stores and restaurants.
2 short blocks walk to the beach and the amazing oceanfront bike path. Right in Kapa'a town but a world away. Decorated with custom design features and details to give you a feel of old Hawaii. Restaurants & stores within easy walking distance.
Whether you are visiting Kauai for a few days, a few weeks, or even a few months, this cozy plantation-style 1BR apartment surrounded by tropical vegetation and whimsical statues and art objects is a hidden right in Kapa'a but surrounded by open space. It’s part of a small and friendly residential community full of Aloha spirit. You can arrive, move in, unpack and unwind -- or head straight to the beach.
The price includes Hawaii State's so-called transient accommodation tax of 13.4% -- most hotels and condos charge that on top of the quoted rate. And there are no "extras" you have to pay -- no “amenity fees,” no resort fees, no fees for the wi-fi (it's free), no “energy” fees, no parking fees – no kidding.
The apartment is ideal for two people. It’s compact but cute and comfortable - fully furnished and equipped, and artistically decorated with granite counter top, etched glass mirrors, indirect lighting, and marble floor inserts that will remind you of Italy.
The kitchen, living room/dining area are open-plan with plantation shutters on the windows, a ceiling fan and (if you need it) an air conditioner. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, full-size refrigerator, gas stove, blender, coffee-maker, toaster, and cooking equipment.
The bedroom has a double chest bed (with space-saving storage drawers underneath), a ceiling fan, and a closet with hangers. The en suite bathroom has a stall shower and art tile on the floor.
The Immediate Neighborhood:
The apartment community has a unique ambiance. There’s an outdoor table and stone seats near the entrance among the trees where you can relax and drink coffee, or sit and chat with other residents. There’s a gazebo, barbecue facility, and open space for parking in the field adjacent to the property.
Several coin-op washers and dryers are on site.
As you may know, the entire island of Kauai has an abundance of roosters and chickens, and they love hanging around near the property. (The chickens and roosters tend to crow at odd hours during the night. Some people sleep right through it, others say they get used to it after 1-2 nights. We can't do anything about the roosters' body clocks, but we do provide our guests with sanitized packs of earplugs.
Interaction with Guests
We can arrange to pick you up at the airport, suggest economical car rental, and even rent you a kayak at a nominal cost to cruise the Wailua river!
We respect your privacy on your vacation, and we won't disturb you once you are settled in - but our managers are available (as I am) by e-mail, text or phone if you have questions.

The fine print:
• Check-in after 3:00 pm, check-out by 11:00 am. Depending on your flight schedule, we may be able to arrange earlier check-in (11:00 am) and/or late checkout (7:00 pm) for a small fee.
• Absolutely no smoking anywhere in the apartment or within 20 feet of it!
• Please remove your shoes as you enter the apartment. Otherwise, Kauai's famous red dirt will follow you in!
• This is a residential community, and we want to keep it as quiet as feasible for the enjoyment of all guests and residents. So please, no parties or loud noise -- except near the gazebo at the far end of the grounds.
• Don't leave your door open for long - mosquitoes could find their way in if you do.
• Don't feed or encourage the wild chickens or the feral cats!
• Don't let any of the cats inside the apartment (they have a habit of slipping in the door if you're not looking).
From Sep 25 - 29, 2017 the minimum stay is 3 nights.

There is no place on earth quite like Kauai for natural beauty, outdoor activities, and the relaxed tropical island way of life (the Aloha spirit). My husband Jack and I enjoy the eastside bike path where you can cycle, walk, or jog traffic-free for 4+ miles (8 miles round-trip), and taking the dog for a walk by the ocean. We love travel, but we love staying home too. Since Airbnb came into existence, it’s possible to do both at the same time. We offer you a fully furnished tropical Hawaiian-style apartment as your “home from home” during your vacation, in a friendly community – right in town yet away from it all – close to beaches and attractions but with local ambiance.
