Tropical paradise in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 7 night stay in Kapahi, Kauai. The bottom rental was very spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. A large porch is right outside your door to enjoy the tropical gardens below. Jai had beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and a island book of great places to visit and eat; she was also available if you had questions/concerns. I think what really made the trip is that the rental is in a fabulous location. We could be on either side of the coast in 45 minutes. And the town of Kapaa is 5 minutes from the house where there are bike rentals, eateries and gorgeous beaches. So you had all this and then could retreat to the top of the hill where it was peaceful and quiet - and enjoy the chickens and roosters. Merlina, the cat was also a plus!

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay on Kauai, and we could not have been more pleased with our accommodations! The ocean view was beautiful, and the lush tropical landscape and cheerful morning birdsong set a very special mood. Very peaceful and tranquil. The unit was very clean, and the bed was super comfortable. We had an awesome fruit basket filled with fruit grown on the property as a welcoming gift. My favorite was breakfast every morning on the private lanai with halved papaya filled with freshly cut pineapple and apple bananas. Oh, and not to forget the 100% Kauai coffee.

Another great experience was a couples massage we booked in "Massage Hale" located on the lower part of the 5 acre property. What an amazing setting and a wonderful, relaxing experience. There is no background music or nature recording necessary here. The abundant wildlife outside provided the perfect soundtrack.

There is a great guide to the island in the information binder for the unit, and our host, Jai, was very friendly and super helpful in suggesting great restaurants and activities. Just a text or phone call away if we needed anything. Another great thing about this place is it's central location. The Northshore and Hanalei are close enough to drive in about 40 minutes. Same with Poipu Beach and even the west side of the island and Waimea Canyon. Either direction you choose to go, it's just not that far to the amazing sights and activities. Lastly, the beach that is right down the hill, just north of Kapaa town, has to be one of the best beaches on the island. (But Kauai has so many good beaches…)

I am so glad that we found this place!!!! So different from one of the cookie cutter condo rentals that we almost booked! (Out of curiosity, we had to go down and walk the grounds of the condo complex we almost booked. That just confirmed that we made the right decision:-)

Thanks again, Jai. We will be back!

Elopement and Honeymoon Retreat! :)

  • 5 of 5

This is my 5th time to Kaua'i in less than 7 years. I've always stay in Kapa'a, as it is so centrally located.... and this stay was no exception. If you want to really see the island, a Kapa'a location is an excellent choice. :) My fiance' and I eloped to Kaua'i on this trip, without anyone in our family knowing, and we stayed at Jai's beautiful retreat for 10 days. (This trip would also be our honeymoon.) We LOVED our lil honeymoon retreat! It was romantic, beautiful, and spacious. We will DEFINITELY return!! This was -- by far -- my favorite vacation rental (anywhere).... and my favorite accommodations on Kaua'i (and I have stayed at one of the nicest hotels on the island on my first trip to Kaua'i). If you want a romantic retreat, living amongst the locals, and really feeling a part of the Kauaian culture, stay here! Jai will not disappoint. :) See you again soon, Jai! Aloha! xoxo

Great place to stay, the sounds of crickets and birds was nice. The host was very nice and helpful, let us use beach chairs and an umbrella. And an avocado tree right in the yard!
