Why Leila K Rodger chose Kauai

The land was purchased years ago. We have family on the Island. The home was built by my brother who is a contractor on Kauai. Not only is the home spectacular but a whole lot of love was poured into this home during its construction. The home is taken care of by family on the island so it continues to be cared for with TLC.... and you can see it and feel it when you walk in the front door! Leila, our niece is the Property Manager and she will go out of her way to help make your stay at our home Perfect.

What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the manager

Bar none this is the most beautiful and most beautifully maintained home we have ever rented and we have rented many! You will see from the web site pictures how stunning the interior and the surrounding views are. What you are missing, is the sound of the surf and sea birds, the fragrance of the local flowers and salt air and the total peace and beauty of it all! The four bedrooms with their en-suite bath are each private getaways with unique views. The kitchen is a chef's dream with every utensil, serving piece, dish and bar ware that you could want. Inside and out are perfect for entertaining in style.

On top of all that, Leila is an excellent property manager. With her enthusiasm and assistance you will lack for nothing in this island paradise. This is not simply a rental but a much loved, beautifully decorated private home you will be privileged to stay in.

Family Friendly Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in this beautiful home. It's a gracious home that can comfortably sleep 12 as advertised. Every bedroom has a full bath that is quite lovely. The bedrooms are a distance from the main living spaces which is so helpful with sleeping children! The kitchen and living spaces are all well equipped and we enjoyed cooking in and grilling most nights. The internet worked very well. The view and beach are spectacular with some beautiful tide pools just right up the beach. It's about a 10 minute beach walk to the heart of tunnels beach, which is an excellent area for swimming and snorkeling. The home is a 15 minute drive from the town of Halalei which features great restaurants and has a cute small town feel. It's also about 10 minutes drive from the Napali coast trail which is a beautiful hike our family really enjoyed. We'd return in a heartbeat!

Our first time renting a family vacation home in Hawaii. Met and exceeded our expectations. House was gorgeous, well equipped for anything you could possibly need. Beach and ocean were perfect for both adults and little kids. Loved the location; wonderful without the crowds you would normally expect on a simply gorgeous beach in Hawaii! Restaurants for dinner not too far away and local fish market was superb when we stayed in and cooked ourselves. Ages in our group ranged from 80 down to 7 years old. Everyone loved this gorgeous home. Photos on their website were absolutely right on...we even took our own photos to show friends. Would truly come back here again! To top it off, weather was gorgeous for our entire stay of 8 days.

This is a location for night life in the area. Quiet place for a much needed rest for everyone.

Beautiful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this wonderful home! It was THE best vacation home we've ever stayed in. We had family from 65 yrs old down to 9 yrs old and it was perfect for every age! The location is far away from the crowds but so worth the extra drive because the location is gorgeous!! It's right on the beach! The house itself was very clean & well stocked. Only a couple of issues like Wi-Fi not working very well but being so far from town that was understandable. Also the freezer never made any ice and leaked. Other than that, the house was perfect! There was no A/C but each room had little A/C units and fans which was a wonderful added touch. The beach is very private but with a strong current & waves, we had to walk about 15-20 min down the beach to Tunnels for calmer water. But for digging or just watching the water or the sunset, it was a perfect location! We can not wait to go back!!! I can't recommend this property enough! Thank you Leila for sharing your very well taken care of home with our family.

Lovely Beach Home

  • 4 of 5

This house is very much as advertised -- a beautiful home with a wonderful beach setting -- the exception being that it is really not right at Tunnels Beach but is about a half mile away from the main snorkeling area. This is not a major problem but it should be disclosed in the initial write-up regarding the homes location. The ocean in front of the house is beautiful but quite rough and generally not swimmable.

That being said, the house and grounds themselves were quite stunning and lived up to all our expectations. The great room area was very spacious, cool and breezy with lots of comfortable seating and great views. The kitchen/dining area was large and easy to work in.

The bedroom/bathrooms were likewise large, if a bit stuffier. But they were saved by the excellent fans that were provided in every room.

We also enjoyed the outdoor areas with the same gorgeous views. The grill and the ping pong table were both put to good use.

One disappointment was the horribly rutted road leading up to the house. It's hard to imagine that with such expensive homes in the area that some improvements can't be make!

Another problem was the TV which was unusable during most of our stay. The remote seemed to take forever to charge and the instructions on usage were of little help.

We did, however, definitely enjoy our stay at this beautiful home and would certainly rent it again if the opportunity arises.

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed here for the week, including the 4th of July holiday, and had a AMAZING time! We were so impressed with the home, the location, and the responsiveness of Leila (the property manager). We'd absolutely stay here again.

THE HOME: This is a beautiful house, with high-end furnishings (e.g., Thermador appliances, Room & Board fixtures, original art, etc...) and tasteful decor. It was very clean, and is obviously well-taken care of. And, Leila had fresh orchids placed all over the house. What a lovely and detailed touch to our experience. There are plenty of beach towels, beach toys, snorkel masks, etc. for the family here. The kitchen is well-appointed, which was very important as we did a lot of cooking and grilling. The home is really relaxing, and even with 10 people, it didn't feel at all crowded. The photos are representative of the home, however don't do justice to the breathtaking setting!

THE LOCATION: The home is beachfront...literally a walk through a small lawn and then you're on the sand. The beach itself is not crowded, so you don't feel like you have to share too much of it with others. It's actually located at the best spot in Kauai for kitesurfing, so when the wind picks up, it's a sight to see so many kiters out on the water. Tunnels beach is a ~10 minute walk along the beach from the home, and we often found ourselves walking there for the best snorkeling on the island. We loved the location of our home b/c it was more serene than staying by Hanalei or Princeville, but close enough to access them. Hanalei is ~15 min drive and Princeville is ~30 mins. By the way, the sunset off the beach is amazing, especially with the view of Bali Hai in the backdrop

THE MANAGER: Leila was very responsive before we arrived, and while we stayed there. She actually lives nearby, so we always knew we could easily reach her if we needed anything. She also has a very friendly dog that we got to meet often during our stay.

DRAWBACKS: Very few, but I should note that the house WiFi was pretty slow, and limited to only the common areas of the house. Also, cell reception is very poor. Since we were there on vacation, this didn't matter to most of us...those who had to get some work done needed to go into Hanalei to find more reliable internet and cell reception.

OVERALL RECOMMENDATION: No regrets whatsoever! This was THE BEST HOUSE, and we had such an amazing, restful, memorable trip. We would not hesitate to stay here again!

What an amazing view of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house looked lovely online but the photos really don't do it justice. It is an amazing home that is very well built, spacious and so comfortable for an extended family. We had adults, kids, and babies and being steps away from the beach made it so convenient. The views from the balcony were breath taking. Each bedroom is very spacious and all the beds are very comfortable with quality mattresses and very nice bedding. It was so nice for each of us to have our own private bath in each bedroom.

This was our first visit to any of the Hawaiian islands and we knew that the north shore wasn't as ideal for swimming but it didn't cause us any issues, we loved the waves. The beach in front of the property was never crowded. It is a residential neighborhood so you don't get squeezed in by crowds and we met several of the neighbors who were all very friendly. There was a calm swimming area just a couple hundred yards down the beach that was an easy walk for swimming and snorkeling but we did plenty of that right in front of our beach house.

Just as the other reviewers commented, Leila is right next door and very friendly and helpful. I was impressed at how clean and well appointed the home was. We rent vacation homes every year and I am often disappointed at how poorly many of them are maintained. In an ocean climate, it is hard to keep a home clean but this one was immaculate. The kitchen is very well stocked and all the appliances are top of the line.

The only comment for others considering this home is the location on the island. Many of the common activities you may want to plan are at the south end and even though its not many miles, it will take well over an hour to drive from the home to many of the common locations. The home and beach are so beautiful that this mostly is not an issue, just plan your day trips so that you don't have to make that drive too often. There are a few shops and a small food market within 10 miles of the home, but for large quantity food shopping you do have quite a drive. Again, just plan for this by stocking up with one large shopping trip and then just plan to stay at this beautiful home, there really is no need to leave.
