This unique studio has an "outdoor living room" - a screened lanai (porch) that serves as an indoor/ourdoor living room. It has a filtered view of Sleeping Giant Mountain and breakfast bar to sip your morning coffee or tea.

Stedet
The Space

Whether you are visiting Kauai for a few days or a few weeks, this eye-catching studio apartment surrounded by tropical vegetation and whimsical statues and art objects will quickly make you feel settled and “at home’. It’s part of a small and friendly community full of Aloha spirit. You can arrive, move in, unpack and unwind -- or head straight to the beach.

This is not a “condo-hotel” room! It’s a self-contained apartment with a high ceiling and a complete kitchen. It is perfect for two people. It’s fully furnished and equipped and artistically decorated with granite counter tops, etched glass, mirrors, indirect lighting, and marble floor inserts that may remind you of Italy.

The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave and full-size refrigerator. The bed is king-size. There are ceiling fans in the living/sleeping area and the kitchen, and – for hot tropical days and nights – air conditioning. The bathroom has a stall shower.

The Immediate Neighborhood:

The apartment community has a unique ambiance. There’s an outdoor table and stone seats among the trees near the entrance, where you can relax, drink coffee, or check your email. There’s also a gazebo, barbecue facility, and open space in the field adjacent to the property.

Several washers and dryers are on site. No charge for their use. Off-street parking is available for your use; no charge.

We have several bikes you can use (no charge), and the incredible oceanside bike/hike trail is 2 blocks away.

The Kauai bird

As you may know, the entire island of Kauai has an abundance of wild roosters and chickens, and they love hanging around near the property. The roosters tend to be quiet in the evening after it gets dark (when they roost), but they are prone to wake up and crow at odd hours during the night. Some people sleep right through it from Day 1, others say they get used to it after 1-2 nights - especially if they have busy, active days and are zonked out by the time they go to bed. We can't do anything about the roosters' body clocks, but we do provide our guests with hermetically sealed packages of earplugs for sleeping! Also running the AC and/or fans during the night helps to block out the crowing sound. Some find the chickens and roosters charming (we've seen many of our guests photographing them!) Other people find them annoying. But they are a fact of life in Kauai. We ask our guests not to feed them or encourage them, but they are persistent birds.

One reason the wild chickens and roosters are in such abundance in Kauai is that there were 2 hurricanes (in 1982 and 1992) and domesticated fowl escaped and bred. Unlike Maui and other Hawaiian islands, Kauai never let the mongoose (chicken predator) in to the island.

OK now a warning: Kauai's chickens like to dig a hole to sit in. So where ever you walk be careful not to put your foot into a "chicken hole" - I know from first hand experience :) The local hospital told us they get at least two patients every week who have damaged their ankles by inadvertently stepping into a "chicken hole".

Kapa’a:

It’s the largest city on the island, although it is a “village” compared with any major mainland city. Kapa’a is centrally located, friendly and picturesque - as noted by recent articles in the Garden Island newspaper and Forbes magazine. At a pinch, you could get around without a car – walking, biking, or using the local bus service - but a car is helpful for real exploration at your own pace.

You can walk to many stores, the Kapa’a post office, banks, pharmacies, the beach, and eating places. Kapa’a has numerous specialty restaurants & cafes in all directions -- including seafood, burger places, coffee houses, Thai, Mexican, Cuban and Indian restaurants as well as local Hawaiian cuisine.

The Island of Kauai:

There is no shortage of guidebooks and good Internet resources describing this piece of Paradise – but you are invited to relax and discover Kauai at your own pace: “Slow down – this ain’t the mainland”. You’ll find a few recommendations in our Guidebook on the website. After you book, we will provide you with a detailed 35-page “Welcome” message to help you plan your visit, including our personal insights into unique Kauai experiences and local secrets.

Interaction:

Arnold, our on-site manager, is very helpful and knowledgeable. He is readily accessible and can answer just about any question you may have about the apartments, the neighborhood, the island, or European Soccer. Although we provide self check-in (digital lock code), Arnold may be around to greet you when you arrive. I will be available during your stay by phone or e-mail to answer any questions. Otherwise you will have the place entirely to yourself. We don’t disturb you (unless you have a problem), and we don’t put a chocolate on your pillow.

Access:

Kapa’a is about 8 miles north of Lihu’e airport. After you have made your reservation, we will give you specific directions for finding this apartment since it’s well hidden.

For days when you want to sightsee, you can drive easily to the north and south shores of Kauai. When you just want to relax, swim, or body-surf, you can walk to the closest beach (Kapa’a Beach Park) which is a beautiful crescent-shaped stretch of sand and good for swimming since it's protected by an offshore reef. Fuji Beach - also known as "Baby Beach" has shallow calm water and tidepools - great for young children to splash in. Or you can drive a short distance to Lydgate Park or Kealia Beach. Those are good nearby eastside beaches. But be careful -- Kauai is not the languid Caribbean - there are strong waves and potential rip tides at some beaches.

Don’t miss the Kapa’a walk/bike path – Ke Ala Hele Makalae, the “The Path that Goes by the Coast” – there is a great 5-minute video on the web (hint: search Vimeo….). There are several bike rental places in Kapa'a, with reasonable prices. We have a few serviceable (but not fancy) bikes available (see photo) that you can borrow and ride - at your own risk - for the entire 8-mile round trip to the far end of the paved path and back.

Enjoy the experience of staying in Kapa’a, close to everything - but away from it all!

The Price

In addition to the accommodation charge and the cleaning fee, a 17.96% (since October 2021) Hawaii state and county "short term rental" occupancy tax is applicable, comprised of the General Excise Tax (GET) and the Transient Accommodation Tax (TAT). That tax is payable no matter where you stay in Kauai. Unlike many of the hotels and resorts, we have no “amenity fees,” no resort fees, no wi-fi fees, no “energy” fees, no fees for use of the bikes, no parking fees, no fees for using the laundry machines – no kidding.

The fine print:
• Check-in after 3:00 pm, check-out by 11:00 am. Depending on our other bookings, we may be able to offer a late checkout for a small fee, but you will need to arrange that with us in advance.
And please:
• No smoking anywhere in the apartment or within 20 feet of it!
• Follow local Hawaiian custom and remove your shoes when inside the apartment. Otherwise Kauai's famous red dirt will follow you in!
• Be sure to turn off the AC, fans, stove, burners, and coffee maker when you are not in the apartment -- and also when you check out.
• No parties or loud noise -- except near the gazebo at the far end of the grounds.
• Don’t hang beach towels, swimsuits or other personal items on the railings outside your apartment.
• Don't leave your door open for long - mosquitoes will likely find their way in if you do.
• Don't feed or encourage the wild chickens and roosters!
• Don't let any of the cats inside your apartment. You may love the kitties, but be considerate of guests who stay after you (many people are allergic to cats).
• We provide bikes for your use at no charge (basic beach cruisers that show signs of wear including some rust on the metal parts), and you use them at your own risk.
• Notify our on-site team immediately if something needs fixing.

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. By the way, the sunglasses in my profile photo are not an effort to be incognito but because I was on the beach facing a bright tropical sun!
