I relocated to Kaua'i from the Midwest in 2007, with the dream of living on the island, owning my own home, and opening a Bed and Breakfast. I love to share my knowledge of Kaua'i and help visitors love and appreciate it's people and beauty.

Wendy Parent purchased this studio in 2012

Stay in a private neighborhood. Experience the beauty and hospitality of the island by meeting the real people of Kaua'i.

Centrally located and easy to get to either side of the island. Convenient for the traveler - has it's own washer/dryer and all of the ammenities necessary to make this your 'Home Away From Home'.

ALL THAT WAS PROMISED, AND MORE

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in a few VRBOs and it's the "little things" that make the difference in the old phrase, "price is what you pay and value is what you get." This has been the best value I've experienced.

Wendy is a most accommodating hostess, in every respect. The larder is well-stocked (she asks in advance for your preferences). Although I basically said, "coffee fixins are fine," there were scones, bagels, cream cheese, fruit, milk, cream, juice, yoghurt, cookies, cereal - and yes, coffee and tea.

The photos are accurate - the studio is light, airy, modern, spotless, with immaculate furniture, fresh linens, and thoughtful amenities. The kitchen, although lacking a full range, has a hotplate and "toaster oven" which serve their purposes for a stay; there are far more accessories than the average VRBO - even a salad spinner! There is a good supply of linens, cooler bags, carry bags (Kauai stores generally don't supply bags), and storage space (closet, cupboard, dresser). There's an iron if you want creases in your Aloha shirt.

The "little extras" continue into the ablution block with spotless tile, upscale fixtures, and most toiletries (shampoo, soap, chicken-resistant earplugs, even a first aid kit!

The unit itself is perfect for a single person or couple and, although there is a pull-out sofa bed, at three or more people it may start getting a little crowded. It's only advertised as for what it will comfortably serve, and the ad is completely accurate that way.

There is an outside shared laundry with all the needs (detergent, fabric softener, clothesline and pins - if you don't want to use the powerful dryer).

The Wi-Fi is strong. There is a smaller TV with a locally-oriented DVD library. I didn't turn on either one, so can't speak to them.

Neighbourhood is quiet (aside from the chickens!) despite being in an area of single family dwellings on fairly small lots.

There is no phone, but when I needed it once, Wendy immediately loaned me hers without questioning the use (it was toll-free).

The only item I might contest is there is no air-con, although there are two good ceiling fans and you can get a respectable cross-breeze going. I live in a cold climate and while I found it warm at night, it wasn't unbearable by any stretch.

I find cleaning fees an annoyance which distort the advertised price (especially if you're only staying a couple days), but in this case it was reasonable for what was delivered. I've paid far more for far less.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

  • 5 of 5
The owner thought of everything! We were provided with a frid full of food for the first morning, goodies and more. The kitchenette has everything to cook and being so close to all amenities, we were able to cook our meals everyday and pack a lunch for our day trip. Ko Malamanui Hale is decorated with taste, is confortable, very clean and is in a quiet neighborhood. All efforts were made to make our stay pleasant. Situated at a perfect distance to explore each side of the island, it makes everything easy. Wendy, the owner, was welcoming and respectfull of our privacy. We had a wonderful experience and we strongly recommend this place to everyone. Mahalo Wendy and Steve!

A REAL GREAT DEAL!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 5 nights at Wendy's studio and we were really happy about it. The studio is nicely furnished with everything needed for a pleasant stay. Wendy even provided a welcome basket with fruits and local products. It is also well located, in a quiet, residential area. You can easily explore the island from that place. We highly recommend it.

PERFECT LOCATION TO SEE THE WHOLE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
*located within 5 minutes of all major highways leading to south/west, east and north regions of Kauai.
*walmart is 5 minutes away
*unit is fully renovated with travertine floors throughout; bathroom is very nice with updated oil-rubbed bronze fixtures and more travertine tiling with granite; extra toiletries are available
*kitchen is well stocked with dry breakfast items, pots, pans, utensils, stoneware, and portable stovetop; fridge is filled with breakfast goodies helping to offset costs of staying on the island and also helpful for a midnight snack
*neighborhood is safe and quiet
*parking is private
*washer/dryer is available on the property with detergent and dryer sheets provided
*outdoor shower is great for post-beach or hiking washing; beach chairs and umbrellas as well as a boogie board are available
*furniture including sofas and two armchairs are comfortable and cable tv is provided.
*host was helpful in recommending dining and entertainment options
*I traveled alone to Kauai and stayed in this unit for 7 days and felt safe coming and going. Being a woman, I was never concerned even late at night and I found the furnishings to be quite upscale similar if not better than nearby resorts. The only potential downside is for those who wish to have a resort experience with Lei's and fountains and immediate access to the beach, this spot requires a little bit of driving. Additionally, the neighborhood is your average Hawaiian community and not a mansion-filled landscape. However, I never felt inconvenienced and I enjoyed my time here more than I would have in a hotel. It lent me a great deal of flexibility and I saw the whole island and was easily able to drive to all parts within 1-1.5 hours. Poipu resorts and beaches are less than 30 minutes away. I had privacy and luxury at a great rate. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends and family.
