The Tropical Coconut tree studio is the perfect place to experience the North Shore
The “Coconut” is a charming double story studio located on the North shore of Kauai. The pictures on the internet site show you exactly what you get. Simple, understated, and very clean. The upstairs bedroom is airy and bright and has a big bed that is very comfortable, so comfortable in fact that you might just find it hard to get up and get going. One of my most memorable experiences was being waken up at night by light shinning in the bed room. Half awake, I slowly realized the light filtering through the windows was moon beams. I slightly lifted my self up to look out the window; a huge full moon was shinning mid sky illuminating the pasture and mountains. This was one of my “perfect moments” as the author Spalding Grey refers to in his crazy adventures. Of course not everyone will see a full moon; instead undoubtedly you will see a multitude of stars. A view that is unspoiled by the glare of city lights; street lights and traffic lights are absent from this area.
My primary reason for staying at the “Coconut” is not to get a great bargain but rather to experience Kauai. When I go to the north shore I want to get away from it all, leave all my concerns at home, get back to the basics, and just be. I have found through my travels that traditional hotels tend to have a bland atmosphere which removes one from the outside environment. At the “Coconut” one is immersed into the island’s unique cadence. The jungle is very close and it has a sound to it. When the trade winds blow through it sometimes it has an unusual effect of sounding like a soft rain instead of a light breeze, this strange phenomena has tricked me more than once. Also one can hear “songs” from the jungle as there are a many native song birds residing there. If you turn off the television, your computer/i-phone and just be still, if only for a moment, you cannot help but be enchanted by this place.
