My name is Martie Law and I am the property manager for Malu Kauai, a beautiful Kauai cottage. I was born and raised on Kauai after my family arrived from California in 1969. My grandfather, father and several uncles were all in the construction industry, running several successful General Contracting companies over the last 45+ years. I am a full time real estate broker with Oceanfront Sotheby's International Realty in Lihue, mother of one, and love architecture, history, nature and photography.
Ed and Barb are the owners of Malu Kauai (and happen to live next door) and have been long time family friends. They love Niumalu for its central location and small community feel. Ed is meticulously clean and Barb has an amazing affinity for hospitality. They make the perfect vacation rental owners and are happy to share their cottage with you.
Niumalu is a small rural town within the Lihue district. Lihue being where the airport is, the hospital, the mall, theater, seat of government, etc. makes it centrally located between the two ends of the island. Kauai essentially has one road to get to the North Shore or the West side so Lihue sits equal distance from either direction. Getting to and from the airport is a breeze with no traffic and there are lots of shopping, restaurants and historic attractions in Lihue.
A venture to the North Shore will be approx. 50 minutes depending on where your final destination is. Visit Hanalei Bay, Kee Beach, Hanakapiai Trail for an exquisite North Shore experience.
A drive South will only take 20 minutes to Poipu Beach Park, National Tropical Botanical Gardens and more. Visit shops and restaurants at Kukuiula and get everything you need. Then catch the sunset at the end of the day.
Go West with a 45 minute drive and visit some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Staying at Malu Kauai allows you exclusive use of a small home with all the amenities to match. Parking is easy, and directly outside the unit. There is no formal check in process, only a lock box at the front door. Laundry is in a small room outside the house and you have exclusive use of the entire house including your own lanai for BBQ'ing. Much better than a hotel, and cheaper too!
We really enjoyed the house you set aside for us. I liked it better than the B & B we stayed at in Hanalei, mainly because of the A/C box in the bedroom, but also because of its location (and the bed was better, too). And we liked the kitchen, and the basket was a nice touch too. When we come back to the island in the future I will shop with you first!
Well maintained, park across the street for strolling. Fair amount of traffic on the road so be careful. Martie Law is very helpful with info and quick responses to inquiries.
We enjoyed this house. It is well-designed and you are made to feel very welcomed. It was spotless and easy to keep cool in the evening. The home is perfectly located, making anywhere you want to go on the island easy. It has a great deck with a very nice retractable awning.The only reason that we will not give it a "5" is because the location is a bit noisy. The home is located near the busy harbor and on a busy street during the early morning. Again, I would not let this stop anyone from renting this home, but it was a bit noisy at times.
Just what the doctor ordered. Everything as advertised. Great location clean facility......Professional interaction with facility management they definitely have the Aloha spirit.
Adoramos nossa experiência de ficar longe de hotéis e turistas.
A casa tem TUDO que você precisa, estava muito limpa e Martie foi muito solícita em todas as nossas necessidades.
Uma delícia ficar na varanda até anoitecer, ouvindo o barulho da natureza! Os galos cantam logo de madrugada, prepare-se para acordar com eles! (Ou ligue o ar condicionado e não ouça nada!)
Usamos a máquina de lavar e secar abaixo da casa e foi ótimo!
Localização central, perto de Lihue onde encontramos tudo.
We totally enjoyed our stay at the Kuai Cottage. It was very clean and well appointed as it was said in the ad on VBRO. It was also convinient to access the major roads to get anywhere on the island.
The ability to access the keys and settle in were much appreciated.
The gift basket was a nice treat to find upon arrival and showed the Aloha we share on our island.
Would definitely recommend to my friends and family, plus the eagerness to make it my choice when visiting Kauai again.
We stayed at this beautiful cottage from May 23rd thru June 2nd 2016.The description of the property was very accurate. The cottage was spotless when we arrived, inside and out. There was a beautiful welcome basket of goodies on the table when we walked in. (By the way, Martie, thanks to you, we are addicted to Kauai Kookies that were in the basket, we visited the factory and brought a bunch home). My husband and I shared the bedroom and my sister used the futon in the living room. The bed and futon were quite comfortable. The cottage provided everything we could have thought of that we might have needed for our stay. The front porch was awesome, the barbecue in the backyard made meals easy, and when we ran out of towels, we used the attached laundry room. We loved the kitchen, it was nice to cook our own meals rather than going out. The location is really convenient to the beaches especially the beautiful beach in front of the Marriott Hotel next to Dukes just down the street. We easily found the Walmart and Safeway to buy our groceries. And sightseeing was easy from the cottage, the location makes it easy to get to the east shore or south or west and north shore. We enjoyed the cable TV, and internet when we were relaxing at the cottage We even enjoyed the local wildlife, chickens, roosters, and an awesome peacock. Martie made everything so nice for our stay. We didn't want to leave beautiful Kauai. We would book this cottage again, and recommend it to friends and family for sure. Thanks Martie. Aloha from Ron, Debbie, & Cheryl.
Walking Distance to Nawiliwili Harbor, Kalapaki Beach, The Marriott, Harbor Mall and Anchor Cove, all approx. 1 mile away. Shopping, dining, swimming, golfing, relaxing all right here! This property is an approved vacation rental licensed by the County of Kauai. #TV5051
