We love Kauai, and had always stayed at the Hyatt. But for those longer trips, we just get sick of being stuck in a hotel, eating out all the time, so many people... So off we searched for a house. And came upon this one. From the inquiry through our departure, Tom was a pleasure to work with! The house is AMAZING. It's everything we'd hoped for and wanted on our vacation. The privacy of the huge back yard, the great kitchen that looks out through the floor-ceiling view of the ocean, the space to just relax and enjoy - I can't think of one thing I didn't like!
Every day we woke up to the sound of the ocean, enjoyed breakfast on the lanai watching whales frolicking off in the distance. We barely left the house- many of our plans were canned when we realized all we wanted to do was enjoy the quiet beauty this home offered us. Reading in the yard, swimming with the honu, watching the waves crash on the rocks, the sunset... We've never become so relaxed so quickly on a trip before! It's like the house was made for us... (right, Tom??! ;-D )
Tom was great - he made us feel welcome, we had great conversation, and he even picked a few coconuts for us that he expertly macheted. Nothing like fresh coconut water! He was available for anything we needed, and was fun to chat with to boot!
Suffice to say, we cried like babies when we had to leave. Tom almost had to pry our hands off the door... We are so glad Tom shared his home with us; it gave us a vacation we'll always remember. We hope to stay here whenever we find ourselves back on Kauai!
