My wife and I went to Kauai at the recommendation of a cousin. He suggested we rent this place as well. It turned out to be GREAT. We had both just retired and this was the perfect place for us to go to unwind from 40+ years of work. The house is larger than it looks, not that we needed a big place. It was just the two of us. Everything in the place was new, from the floors, to the kitchen appliances, to the linens. It is NICE. The decorations are very Hawaiian. Everything in the house works.......from the TV's to the internet. We were coming from the East coast so we woke up VERY early for the first few days. Early enough to watch the sun come up. Amazing. This house is ON THE WATER. Right on the water. You can hear the waves.....it lulls you to sleep. The kitchen is great. We both cook. All the right tools and appliances are there. The neighborhood is sleepy. Very quiet. We never heard any noise other than the ocean. We would sit on the porch, I think there is a Hawaiian word for porch, and watch the sun come up. After daybreak we would take a quick swim, then start the days activities........mainly reading and eating! We will be back.
