We arrived January 5th and we are sadly leaving in 2 days. Having spent lots of time on Kauai in my life, this was a great way to enjoy the island for an extended amount of time. I always say, if you want to go lay on a beach and hang out at a hotel, go to the Caribbean or Mexico, Hawaii is for adventuring & exploring. Mindy's studio gave us the perfect home base, we had a mini fridge / freezer, microwave, small cooking unit, pots pans, dishes, dinnerware etc.... So we were able to save money making breakfast at home and packing lunches for the road. The unit itself is beautiful & has a private lanai area to enoy our morning coffee & tea. An unexpected bonus was the awesome community pool / hot tub with stunning ocean views. That brings me to our next point, the neighborhood is set on a hill with gorgeous ocean views as you pull onto the street you can see Poipu down below in the distance.

Location: You are about 10 minutes to Port Allen and Salt Pond Park & likewise about 10 minutes to Koloa town. 30 minutes to the canyon, 40 minutes to Polihale State Park. 30 minutes to Lihue, 40 to Kapa'a and an hour+ to Princeville. So if you are North Shore people, then keep that in mind, but driving an hour in Kauai doesn't bother us at all, we went up to the North shore at least 10 - 12 times (Get an early start and spend the day up there). The bonus is, the weather is usually much better in Poipu, so when the rest of the island is rainy, we would just mellow out, take a 10 minute drive to Poipu and enjoy the beach.

The comments about noise upstairs, well yes, that is true, but Mindy and her family are very good about their volume in the mornings and at night, so frankly if you are hanging around in the middle of the day and there is some noise upstairs my question for you would be, why are you hanging around the house mid day? you're in Hawaii! Additionally there is a ceiling fan and they provided another fan for white noise to minimize help block out noise. Mindy, Dave and their children are all really cool and accomodating people. I honestly, don't think I've ever stayed with friendlier hosts.

When we come back to Kauai, we will absolutely be staying here again, this place is a real gem and the neighborhood is filled with friendly people, you are in a very safe location.

All in all, my only hesitance in writing a review this good is, I hope it is available the next time we come to Kauai! THANKS MINDY & DAVE!

🌅 Good location, great views from the neighborhood 🌅

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in Kaleheo, it was a nice distance between the east and west sides of the island. The studio was cozy for two people with wifi, beach stuff, and well equipped kitchenette. It was great to be able to eat in and save some money on pricey restaurants. Nice pool and hot tub access. Was great to have designated parking for the rental car. There is a family living upstairs, with kids and dogs, and there will be some ceiling sounds above you. Mindy was a friendly host and very good at getting back to us with any questions we had. We liked having this as our homebase for exploring the island. Nice place for a couple, especially on a budget. 🌈

The people were very nice, welcoming, and accommodating.

  • 3 of 5

The people were very nice, welcoming, and accommodating. We found the room was a little warm (even with the ceiling fan), we could hear the activities of the house, and the room was not overly private. We found the accommodations a little costly. Again, the hosts were delightful. Thank you for the stay.

Small, but clean

  • 2 of 5

Clean, very small room. With three people in the room it is nearly impossible to prepare more than a coffee. Owner forgot, that we arrive with three in the party. Had tp prepare the bed ourselves.

Owner's Response: Aloha we hope you had an amazing stay! We don't usually prepare the sofa bed for the extra guest ;) we would have been happy to if asked to in advance. We do however, as you are aware have the clean linens ready for you when you are ready to pull out the sofa bed & utilize as desired. Mahalo again!

We were happy to find a place that would allow my service animal who is extremely quiet. We had a couple issues we didn't want to make a fuss. The dog upstairs is running after a ball at the crack of dawn and it sounded like an elephant. Other then that the family was very nice. The bedding and towels did not smell or look fresh.

Owner's Response: Aloha Mahalo for your input! We had pulled up our large area rug to get cleaned, it is back now so low noise! We occasionally did hear your sweet dog, however it did not bother us :) Hope you are enjoying the Big Island! Mahalo Nui Loa for being our guests
