Your host Kevin Rogers has lived here since 1998. He is a blues/rock musician from Chicago. He has done a radio program on KKCR (Kauai Community Radio) for over 11 years. Look online for his band SWAMPDADDY & his business Mardi Gras Entertainment. Together they enjoy playing music, promoting concerts , and managing this wonderful vacation rental. They live on property and are immediately available if any needs arise.

Kevin purchased this apartment in 1985

Why Kevin chose Kauai

The late Carl Anderson and Pam courageously built their dream home by hand. Loving the west side for its miles of white sand beaches and uncrowded surf spots. Unbelievable sunsets with great waves, views of whales, boaters, and other sea life from the deck.

What makes this apartment unique

For surfers there's a great surf spot across the street with year round surfing and boogie boarding. No matter what time of year we get swells from both directions.We have no extra charges for the many ammenities we offer. We are twenty minutes from either Poli Hale Beach (one of the greatest) and the Waimea Canyon (sometimes descibed as th Grand Canyon of the Pacific).

Nice Ocean View...

  • 1 of 5

We found many problems with this rental, but the owner has said that he will attend to our concerns. We stayed only one night here after finding numerous issues and several inaccuracies on the owner's web site. The unit is large enough to accommodate a couple nicely and the ocean view is as described. The road noise was not really an issue for us, and yes, there were lots of beach supplies that Kevin left for our use.

1. The swimming pool mentioned in the on line description as well as in a rather outdated welcome letter was an above ground pool frame and dirty sagging pool liner, but there was no water in it. The advertised pool did not exist.

2. We cook seafood on the grill every night while on Kauai. The grill was actually a small Weber kettle grill with no lid handle. We did not see that it could be used.

3. There was a lovely beach view, but as soon as it got dark, the bugs arrived. Yes, we expect bugs, but with absolutely no window or sliding door screens, you had to totally shut the unit up at night. There were no cool breezes or surf sounds to be had.

4. The unit was clean, but no amount of cleaning could remove the horrible rust on the refrigerator door or the rotten wood on all the window frames and sills. It appears that new windows with screens are needed , and Kevin, the owner, said he would take our suggestions under consideration.

5. There was at one time a smoke detector in this unit, for the back of the detector was installed in the little hallway, but there was no detector.

6. The lanai consisted of an old chaise lounge with a very soiled mat, one small rusted end table, and two plastic chairs.

Kevin believes us to be middle aged whiners (Republicans at that) who don't "deserve" his island. Reading this response from him floored us. I personally could not recommend renting this unit.

Owner's Response: We did not meet these people as we were on the mainland. We could not deal with these "problems" right away as we normally do.We have a pool for ourselves that is not advertised for guests, it is only mentioned in reference to where the grills are, we have several grills, had they asked, and the "Smokey Joe" has been replaced by a new one. There are screens on all the windows and always have been, a new smoke alarm to replace the old one they apparently didn't see. The refrigerator works great, but does have some rust. We will be replacing that soon, but have since painted it over. The window sills are a bit fuzzy, but try living next to the ocean in a Redwood home. Although they left, this seems like a good review? Kevin only referred to them as whiners after a couple of insulting emails from them, but you decide if these minor complaints, most of which have been or are being fixed, would keep you from this great location and gorgeous view. You can't please everyone, but we sure try!

wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay. The place is very accurately described and depicted on this site. Pam and Kevin are welcoming and helpful (but also low key and not intrusive) hosts. The views are incredible, with tall windows and a huge deck. The location is awesome- close to Waimea and right on the beach. Awesome sunset views every night!!

The unit itself is great- spacious and comfortable. We felt at home right away. When we arrived, the place was clean, with all listed amenities available, and island music playing :) the tall ceilings are great! The bathroom is very nice with a great shower (and bonus lovely view from the shower window). The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is pretty well-stocked. Temperature-wise, the ocean breeze + fans were enough for us- we didn't even use the AC (stayed in May).

I would not listen to the few bad reviews we have read skimming here. This is an older house overall (with updates and good maintenance) but the listing description/pics are accurate and the price reflects that. Things that make this better than a place in a fancy resort: spaciousness, quirky charm, huge deck, privacy, convenience of a full private kitchen, laundry, free access to tons of beach/leisure/surf equipment, assistance/friendliness/laid back attitude from hosts, and, as a bonus, surfing lessons from Pam!! She is an awesome teacher, and we had so much fun (though were very sore the next day, haha!).

We would definitely stay here again when we return to Kauai

Spacious and beachfront.

  • 4 of 5

We were so happy to find this special beachfront view home in Kakaha --only one night. Kevin's (and Pam's) "homeaway" is spacious and well-equipped. It was very beautiful to enjoy surf and starlight and have so much space. We relaxed immediately: napping on the lanai, watching surfers and resting on the comfy couch after a tiring visit to Waimea canyon. Unfortunately, there is some traffic on the road in front. But we managed to tune it out and just hear the soothing waves. Thank you Kevin and Pam for communicating closely and having us for only one night. Yes I would recommend to family and friends. Nearby historic Waimea has some interesting walks and Hanapepe is a "must" to eat at two fabulous cafe/bakeries and shop at the wonderful bookshop! Thank you Kevin and Pam.

Great location and view, a little funky

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location for exploring Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park, and very near the town of Waimea for shopping and restaurants. Our host Kevin was very nice and accommodating. The place has great light and is spacious, but a bit funky. Carpeting could be cleaned or replaced, and the kitchen faucet was in need of repair. Deck had a great view of sunrise and sunset, but the main road is right in front, and it was very busy until late in the evening. The bedroom, in the back, was quiet. Excellent bathroom.

Very peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 2 nights with my husband and 2 years old son. We had a great time there.

As this property is located in front of the sea, we could see beautiful sunrise every morning. Despite near main road, it is very quiet from night to early morning. Very peaceful.

We enjoyed going to a beautiful and quiet beach near this property and Waimea valley, not far from there.

The room is spacious and cozy. I felt like I am at home.

The owners are very kind. They care about guests.

I definitely would like to visit there again!!
