The perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights and it was perfect. It is a really nice, central spot on the island and the little house was just the right size for the two of us. It is in a local neighborhood and the neighbors are very nice. Everything was clean and comfortable. We could hear roosters in the mornings, but they were off in the distance, so they never woke us up. Wendy was so kind to stock the fridge with necessities and local fruit and coffee! She had everything we needed, like beach towels & chairs, bogie boards, washer & dryer, zip lock bags, a cold bag & ice packs... It was like staying at a friends house. We would highly recommend staying here! Thank you Wendy!

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The unit was well-located, comfortable, clean, and welcoming after each day of adventures. Wendy stocked the studio with tasty food upon our arrival - fresh local fruit, coffee, chocolates, cookies, yogurt, bagels & cream cheese, and milk, among other things. We loved the amenities offered: laundry facility, outdoor shower & beach gear, all the filmed on Kauai movies, free WiFi, and food waiting for us! The main reason for not giving five stars was the queen bed. It sags in the center and became increasingly uncomfortable during the week. The addition of a full-length mirror (perhaps on the back of the bathroom door) would make getting ready easier. Adding a lap desk and a power strip will help those who travel with a laptop (like us). The door in between our unit and Wendy's stairwell rattled slightly on windy mornings, which woke us up earlier than we had hoped. Perhaps there's a way to stop that? Other than that, we had a wonderful experience here, and found Wendy to be a kind, thoughtful and helpful host, who was thankful for our suggestions.

Renting Wendy´s studio was the best decision!!! It is perfect located for exploring Kauai and Wendy is a great host. She gave us a lot of tips. But the best were the local products (coffee, cookies, fruits...). Mahalo for everthing!!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely perfect accommodation with friendly service. A beautiful, clean & fresh unit with everything you need- from beach supplies to ziploc bags & tupperware. We were welcomed with the basics in the fridge and some Hawaiian treats to start us off. I would definitely stay here again. It was quiet & centrally located for exploring the Island. Wendy went above and beyond to make us comfortable and welcome.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent. The studio was clean and had everything we needed plus more. The owner has every detail covered...from a binder with local recommendations to Hawaiian music and movies. She also had fresh fruit, coffee and chocolate for us on our table upon arrival (all local). Great!

Fabulous studio away from tourists!

  • 5 of 5

Oh what a breath of fresh air to stay in a local neighborhood away from the madness of Poipu and Kapaa. It was awesome to go to those places by day, and retreat to this clean and well-stocked space at night. And as a young woman traveling alone, I felt safe and secure here. It's a studio so it's perfect for singles and couples. Wendy was sweet enough to stock the kitchen with fresh fruit, coffee, milk, cereal, yogurt, bagels, POG juice!...amazing, and it really helped cut down on food costs. The bed was ultra comfy, the ceiling fans were lovely- no ac needed. Perfect central location for getting around the island by rental car, good local food options close by in Lihue, and Wailua and Kapaa are 10 min away. I've come to Kauai 7 or 8 times and roosters are always part of life here. But I gotta say, I didn't hear any at this location!

If you need any recommendations while you're there, Wendy's your gal. She recommended a Lomi Lomi massage at Angeline's in Anahola, what a wonderful experience! Cannot say enough good things about this rental and it's owner. Thanks for everything Wendy!
