Rare Wailua riverfront executive home located in Kapa'a. There are only 8 homes on this river! Very centrally located for day trips to the North and East coast of the Island. The main house contains 2 bedrooms with bathrooms and all living spaces. Next to the covered garage there is a separate Ohana studio with a kitchenette, bathroom and queen bed. This room has a separate entrance and it's own outside sitting area. This home has beautifully landscaped appointments. It has a beautiful Japanese garden with a fountain and a large spacious front yard with tropical gardens and fruit trees. There is newly installed central air conditioning in the house as well as ceiling fans.
Enjoy kayaking, standup paddle boarding or swimming from the newly installed multiuse dock. Kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Boards are provided on the property.
Seven person hot tub is accessible from deck.
This home is located next to one of the most sacred places on the island, the birthplace of Hawaiian Ali'i. Enjoy beautiful sunsets from the lanai table and lounge chairs or from the stairway down to the dock. Water sports are readily available: kayaking, water skiing and wake boarding. We are located across the river from the Smith boat launch for the popular destination 'Fern Grotto cruises', one of Kauai's signature attractions with a Hawaiian Village along the way and further up the river access to the trail to Secret Falls, one of Kauai's top 10 adventures.
The town of Kapaa has many popular restaurants. The Wailua Golf Course is 3 minutes away, rated the #1 Municipal Golf Course in the USA with mountain and ocean views. Opaeka'a Falls, one of the most beautiful waterfalls on Kauai,is just up the road and easily seen from an overlook off of Kuamo'o Road. The beach is just a short walk from the home and seen from the riverside of the home.

Perfect in every way ! River frontage was best part. We kayaked and cycled often.
Lovely deck, hot tub, BBQ, kayaks, paddle boards, computer printer, and well appointed kitchen all lived up to promise. Laundry facilities. Having a secure gated entrance also contributed to feeling at home and secure.
A separate "apartment with kitchen" for one couple. So close to everything we needed and wanted to do.
I only wish we could have stayed longer ! :)
We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. It was everything and more that we expected. Owner Carl went out of his way to be accommodating. The house and all the amenities.. the kayaks and paddle boards and the beautiful peaceful deck were paradise indeed! The central island location, being 5 minutes from the bike path and a 10 minute walk from Lydgate beach, made this wonderful riverfront home a true paradise for our girls-get-away. Everything was awesome!
This is my 3 rd time in kauai and I have stayed at some great hotels, bit none of them came close to this house. You are secluded and step away from everything. The house is spectacular, the property is amazing, the location is everything you could want. Karl worked with me on every little question and detail. We were out on the river 3 times a day and the 10 days flew by. I know in the future we will be contacting them again to return. Most trips by the end you are ready to go home, this trip I was trying to find excuses to stay.
My husband, daughter, son-in-law, and 19 month-old grandson just spent a truly idyllic week in this lovely home on the Wailua River. We truly hated to leave. The location is simply spectacular: directly on the river, with a dock for kayaks and paddle boards giving you instant river access. The very central location is conducive to getting anywhere on Kauai in a very reasonable time, and is just 10 minutes, at most, from the airport at Lihue.
As a VRBO owner myself, I was impressed with how well equipped the home is, with luxury linens on the beds, and plentiful supplies available (paper products, cleaning and laundry supplies, etc.); this shows an unusual level of thoughtfulness for guests. Additionally, the kayaks and paddle boards were a terrific extra.
The home is open and comfortable, with gorgeous landscaping that adds to the "tropical paradise" feel. My husband and I also loved having the Ohana room, with its handy kitchenette and high-end bathroom, just for ourselves.
I cannot say enough good things about this property, and about the responsiveness and care for guests exhibited by the owners. My only caution is that, while children are most welcome, the lovely home is not baby-proofed (there are attractive and unique pieces of art and "knick knacks") and is therefore best suited for families with well behaved older children.
There simply could not have been a more enjoyable property for our first-ever visit to Hawaii. Mahalo!!!
The house was great for my wife, brother, and parents. It was located in a quiet and convenient area and it's one of 5 house of so that are actually on the Wailua River.
Thank you for helping make our Kauai vacation great... I think about the great times often, and I miss it.
The home was absolutely beautiful! What a great vacation. Location was perfect, patio is the best, view could not be nicer. Very relaxing, it had everything you would need to stay short term or long. Owners were great. We enjoyed our family vacation in your beautiful home. Thank you for sharing it with us.
