Perfect House and Location for an Active or Totally Relaxing Vacation
This house is absolute beachfront and absolute oceanfront. While condos with these features exist on Kaua'i, finding an entirely private and affordable house with these features was a stroke of good luck. We were also very much drawn to the house by the beautiful and well-jetted outdoor hot tub which we used every evening that we were there...even one evening when it rained. Another positive feature of this rental is the helpful and efficient manager who responds so rapidly and within minutes to all of our email questions. Moreover, everything in the house was clean, well-maintained and highly functional. For us, the wi-fi must be 100% reliable and fast, and it was. The entire house, both floors, was airy and bright. The powerful air conditioning worked perfectly which was fortunate since we used it daily. If you enjoy privacy as we do, you will enjoy the fact that you have the beach to yourself. When we entered the ocean in front of the house, either to swim or to snorkel, we were the only ones there. There are public beaches a short distance away where you will find people but there's really no need to go to those beaches given that you can snorkel and swim in front of the house. The house comes equipped with all the water equipment you'll need including snorkeling gear, water shoes, etc. The house also has an upstairs balcony with table and chairs which we used frequently, including at sunrise and sunset. And if we wanted shade, there was yet another table and many chairs on the downstairs patio. Another feature of the house that we valued is its location on a quiet road off the main highway. It was rare that we'd see or hear a car on this quiet road which added to the idyllic ambience. The location of the house is perfect in that it's a very short drive to shopping in Kapa'a or the north. We shopped not only in Kapa'a but also in Kilauea, Princeville and Hanalei. One of our most amazing shopping experiences was just a few minutes from the rental house at the Anahola Hawaiian Land Farmer's Market, where on Friday, Saturday and Sunday you can purchase substantial portions of inexpensive and remarkably tasty barbecued wild Kaua'i boar. We would highly recommend a taste of this local treat. We rented this house in August, 2012 and found it so perfect in meeting our needs that we are returning in November, 2012. This is the first time that we enjoyed a rental so much that we decided to return a mere three months later.
