WAILUA BEACH RIVER COTTAGE - KAYAK/AC - SPECIAL RATE!

Wailua Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

As featured on TV: 'Sonoran Living Live'. Includes: a two person, Kayak and Paddle Boards! And a Bonus: AIR CONDITIONED!

Welcome to Wailua Riverside Tree Top Cottage! This is a perfect place to experience the real Kauai - in a residential setting at the Wailua River. Wailua Riverside is a tree top cottage, newly redecorated, furnished Hawaiiana style, fully equipped kitchen, master bedroom with queen bed, den with sofa sleeper a full size bed and the covered lanai offering outdoor dining.

'We just returned from five days at Wailua Riverside Hideaway... also known as... Kauai Calls! Set Your Heart Free... It is a delightful four room efficiency on the Wailua river, on the east coast of Kauai. Full kitchen, fantastic elevated covered lanai with enough room for 4 adults to dine. The place was squeeky clean, bright and airy to take advantage of the trades. Quiet, secluded and private, the lovely vacation rental has it's own carport, access to full size washer and dryer, and something you seldom see, a modern efficient air conditioner (but with the trades, you don't need it). You can even watch satelite TV if you just 'can't let it go'. There is a great collection of DVDs and VHS movies... and lots of books. Candace has provided every type of recreation equipment you might need for the beach or the river, including a two place Ocean Kayak, paddles and PFDs, and a small dock to launch right on the tranquil river. Everything is nearby and yet you hear nothing at night but an occasional gecko, rooster, or the soft soothing music of the distant waves in Wailua Bay. Lydgate park is less than five minutes and is the perfect place to introduce the ocean to your children. Calm, protected, warm waters with full lifeguard service, facilities and plenty of parking. A great place to walk or run in the mornings or evenings. Candace is a gracious hostess who allows you to be you. You have a completely private entrance, and yet she is available if you need her. She is the perfect kind of person to host such a place. She knows the island inside and out, real estate, culture, touristy stuff, and the best places to go. She is a transplanted kama aina who loves what she does. What a fantastic find after a couple horror stories on Kauai and other islands. My only concern is that too many other folks will discover this place and it will be hard to schedule. We are going back next year. Period. It is wonderful! Period.'

Located at the Sacred Wailua River, where only the ancient Hawaiian Royalty were allowed to visit, Wailua Riverside is a two minute walk to an awesome eight-mile shoreline of uncrowded, sandy beaches. You are steps from a dock where you can launch your own Kayak onto the Wailua River to explore and hike to Secret Waterfalls, which has a natural swimming hole at its base. Water skiing, Wakeboarding, Speed Boating are also available from the same dock!

Centrally located for island exploration and also enjoy the many activities nearby: KAYAK INCLUDED!!! Hiking, Biking, Golf, Fishing, Wildlife Viewing, Horseback Riding, Shopping, Restaurants, Live Theater, Sightseeing, Swimming, Snorkeling/Diving, Boating, Sailing, Waterskiing, Surfing, Windsurfing, Parasailing, Jet Skiing, and Shelling.

Guestbook comments from the owner
“Thanks for the use of your Hideaway, we had a wonderful time, we got good use of the kayak and had the chance to try SUP. Our kayak trip along the NaPali coast was a highlight, long day but beautiful conditions. Lots of great eating spots and Donkey beach one of our favorite beaches! Thanks again!”

I have always known I would have a home on beautiful Kauai and dreamed of hosting guests who come to Kauai to fulfill their own life's dream. My favorite TV show when growing up was 'Fantasy Island' and here I am. Over the past 6 years I have come to realize that all that guests who have stayed at Wailua Riverside Hideaway became family the moment they arrived. It is you the guests who are the true stars in this Fantasy Island called Kauai - I look forward to greeting / meeting you! Mahalo nui loa! Candace, Owner

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2002

I literally had a dream about this property! It was finding it that became the first part of an enjoyable personal journey. I look forward to telling you all about it!

Kauai Calls! Wailua Riverside Hideaway on the beautiful island of Kauai!

Mahalo nui loa,

Candace

HIDEAWAY PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
The 'Aloha Spirit' comes in many forms. It was all encompassing on my recent visit to Candace's Hideaway on the luscious island of Kauai. Though it was just my second stay in this cozy but open Hawaiian bungalow, I felt as if I were arriving in a place I could call 'home'. It began with the very friendly greeting from Candace who welcomed me with a plumeria lei and her infectious laugh. I was happy to see her adorable cats again. Lenny and Bo led the way up the stairs to the Hideaway as if they were the official greeters. I loved their entertaining presence during my time there. I purposely cloistered myself on this trip having done the tourist thing during my first visit. This time I wanted to live in each moment with the chance to fully experience my thoughts and feelings in the short time I was to be there. The Hideaway easily allowed me that gift with it's privacy, comfort and surrounding beauty. Some events happened as I planned them like walking down to the river with my morning coffee in hand. I read part of a favorite book on the lanai and had time to write a few pages for my own book. I took a short trip into Kapa'a to buy baby bananas and sunrise papayas at the farmer's market for my breakfast and made sure I had enough essentials for my stay at the Hideaway.Then there were things that showed up, delightfully surprising me during the moments I least expected them. There was the sound of steady night rain cleansing the roof while the lovely fragrance of wild jasmine flowers found it's way through the opened louvered windows. The warm rising Hawaiian sun touching my face to wake me, along with the native birds' 'get up' songs, were treats as well. It was when I was doing nothing that I felt the spirits of the land, the Royal Hawaiians (the Ali'i) who actually claimed this very land by the river as their own so long ago. In the silence, I felt as if I were transported into another time, another culture where the 'Aloha Spirit' was born. This indeed is a very sacred place to stay. After three days I left the Hideaway reluctantly but grateful for my renewed spirit. I know that I will be back for a longer visit, perhaps for a ride up the river in the house kayak and more opportunities for other sweet experiences that open up my senses in such lovely ways.I am so thankful for Candace and the retreat she has created to allow me such an incredible stay at the Hideaway. She is definitely the essence of the 'Aloha Spirit.'

WAILUA RIVER HIDEAWAY IS A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have been to Kauai several times and we always seek an opening at one of Candace's properties. Since our very first time staying in the Hideaway, it has been our favorite by far! It is very secluded but close to everything at the same time. It is the perfect location to be able to reach all other parts of the island. And Candace is the most wonderful hostess ever. She has an wonderful aura that you do not get to experience very often and was like our best friend from the minute we met. She went out of her way multiple times to make sure that we were taken care of and I love that the Hideaway has some of those little special touches such as the Hawaii scented soaps that I love so. The Hideaway is right on the river and we had fun taking the kayak out for a trip to the Fern Grotto. That is a must - and so relaxing. Our favorite evening was eating dinner that we cooked (on the grill that Candace provides) on the lanai with the moonlight shining through the coconut trees. If you listen, you can even hear the ocean waves pounding the shore from the distance. We have truly fallen in love with Kauai as well as Candace and her kitties and will be back many more times! Mahalo nui loa!!

GREAT LOCATION AND AMENITIES, BUT NOT WHAT WE EXPECTED.

  • 3 of 5
Here's what we really liked about the property.
1. Great location, right by the river.
2. Candace was really nice greeting us upon our arrival.
3. Amenities galore! Using the kayak was great, right by the river.
She has everything there you could need.
4. Everything is close by for food, dining, shopping, day trips to the North shore, etc,
5. Decent view from the cottage.

These items were not so great. ( this may not be as important to you, as it was to us ).
1. Heavy rain woke us up every night, you are up stairs so you really hear it when it pours.
2. Birds were very loud every morning & the sun shines brightly into your room, i.e. 6-7a.m.
The existing shades do not keep the room dark.
3. A/C for the cottage is a single wall unit, not a whole house system, the cottage stayed fairly warm
from late morning thru early evening.

Here's what we really didn't like at all.
1. ANTS!!! they were everywhere in the kitchen, on the counter, stove, in the dishware, and even in the coffee maker, also in the bathroom. We used the ant spray under the sink, but gave up after 2 days. I called Candace about it, but she only offered to spray for them which I already did. We also found ant traps in several areas of the cottage. I also told her at that time we wouldn't feel comfortable staying here again because of the problem, she said sorry and that was it.
2. On our last night we were woken up by a loud garbage truck at 5:20am, my wife and I couldn't go back to sleep after that. We were super tired flying home later that day.
3. Lastly, when we checked out we had to wait to a few minutes while she was on the phone, no apologies, no offers for a credit, partial refund or something / anything! Just thank you & " have a nice life ". We couldn't believe it! Not professional about such a major problem with the ants.

We will not stay here again, nor recommend it based on our experience. It wasn't what we expected or hoped for. The ants and being woken up every night ruined it for us.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your feedback. The birds singing and the sunrises are the delight of the vast majority of our Guests, the very reason Kauai calls them to Hawaii and here – to these Guests, it is Paradise found! And, the rain at night is the blessing of the island ensuring the most beautiful island in the world continues to be the Garden Island and gifts Guests with sunny days to enjoy all that the island offers!

Hawaii is a tropical climate in which insects, rodents and lizards unfortunately thrive. All properties are on a quarterly maintenance program, but Guests may encounter these pests during stay. Contact with critters inside or outside of Guests rental is not reason for a refund of monies. If this does occur, please contact Kauai Calls! To make a report as a trouble call may be scheduled. Reference the signed agreement.

Had I been given the opportunity to enter the unit to inspect the situation as it was occurring, I would have been able to assess and immediately correct any issues. I was first made aware there may have been an issue when you called Sunday night at 9:40 PM just 12 hours before your scheduled check out. I offered 3 times during the phone call to immediately come to the unit to assist, and each time you clearly refused my help. An inspection had to wait until after check out; at which time, the unit was found to be free of ants. As an extra precaution, the professional pest control company was called, the unit sprayed, and new ant deterrent placed for optimal effectiveness. For future Guests, starting October 31, 2011 the pest control program is transitioning to 100% Eco-friendly on a bi-monthly spray with rosemary oil and peppermint oil in water base; as well as, Eco-friendly ant deterrent. Standard policy for reporting issues remains in effect as stated in the rental agreement.

I live on the same property available 24 hours 7 days a week and am happy to answer questions and to assist. I am happy to turn on the air conditioner in the afternoons to cool down the unit. If I happen to be on an important business call, it may take several minutes to get back to you with a response. I do have texting capability as well. I continue to wish you the best of luck on your new life!
Aloha!
Candace

What a wonderful home away from home. Candace has thought of everything you will need and then some. We truly enjoyed our week in this special place. Traveling around the island from here was very convenient. Having the kayak available was fantastic. We were able to get to Secret Falls long before anyone else, and sitting on the dock in the evening was very relaxing.

We (mom, dad, and seventeen year old daughter) enjoyed a week's stay in July 2006 at the Wailua Riverside Hideaway. Our hostess Candace greeted us warmly with leis, chocolate covered macademia nuts, and a big smile. She went out of her way to ensure our comfort throughout our stay and never seemed to mind helping us out when asked. The Hideaway is tucked away in a quiet residential area on the Wailua River. Located on the coconut coast, we found the Hideaway close to shopping and restaurants and perfect for exploring the island at leisure. The beach (not as crowded as we had expected it would be) is within walking distance and Opaekka Falls is just up the road. The Hideaway is warmly decorated in local island style with thoughtful extras. We especially enjoyed the onsite kayak for two. We kayaked up the Wailua River and hiked to Secret Falls which was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation. Guests will enjoy the treetop lanai, air conditioning, gas grill, and internet access. We truly had an enjoyable stay at the Hideaway and would stay here again.

Mahalo Candace for your warm hospitality.
