Delightful place to stay

I found all my personal needs were met and beyond. There was fruit for my breakfast, fruit for an after dinner dessert and Jai opened a coconut especially for me. A walk around the gardens showed me the beauty of the area. So peaceful and relaxing. So glad I booked my time here.

Owner's Response: Aloha Esther, Yes the unit is 600 square feet on the inside and another 100 square foot private deck with gates on the outside. It is about four times the size of a hotel room. I am delighted you enjoyed the peace and quiet that is my hope for all my guests that they get rest and relaxation while here in the gardens. Thank you for your review and please come back again soon.

My husband and I stayed with Jai here for 3 nights, and our stay was an absolute slice of heaven. The moment we arrived, we were greeted by Merlina - a sweet, sociable cat and came out and welcomed us warmly into the cute tropical garden surrounding the house. We had arrived early so we left and came back and Jai also gave us a very warm welcome when we came back. The peacefulness and lushness of the property were just what the doctor orderd, and we found ourselves settling in very comfortably, indeed! Rain or shine we soaked in the atmosphere and watched the Kauai sky put on a show of clouds and rainbows, and spectacular sunsets as well as the occasional clear blue sky. We took Jai up on the offer for a couples massage and we were not disappointed! It's was lovely :) She was so friendly, she even took the time to fill us in (we asked!) on how she gets her cat's cot so absolutley soft and healthy even though she's outdoor cat. Interesting stuff! And finally, she took the time and effort to mail me my phone charger when I left it there. Service above and beyond! I couldn't recommend Jai and her rental more highly!

Beautiful!!! Quiet, clean, comfortable bed. Jai thought of everything to make me comfortable. The grounds are spectacular as well as the bananas, oranges, grapefruit, limes and avocados grown there. Hard to beat fresh squeezed juice to start your day.

Easy Stay - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

First time in Kauai after many trips to Maui. Didn't know when reserving that this location would be so central/perfect. The local town (Kapaa) was 13 min away, but always seemed to go quicker. Kapaa seemed to have the best concentration of restaurants and services. Lots of 'locals' places to eat. The rental is not fancy, but it was very functional. Jai was very pleasant and helpful. The greenery in front of the unit, which has a large veranda, is really what made the place for us. Small ocean view. Avocado trees. Banana trees. Lots of sun and lots of rain. And warm winds.

Peaceful Gardens

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

The pictures of this unit with the redwood interior and the gardens grabbed my interest to book at this site and it did not disappoint. This is a private setting with plenty of room for a couple, and could easily expand to one additional person. Sitting on the deck overlooking the garden and the ocean view was a treat each day for my morning coffee. The air conditioner worked well then we were able to use a combination of the tradewinds and the ceiling fan keep us comfortable for the majority of our visit. the internet worked very well also.

While on vacation I cook simple meals and salads so the kitchen had all that is required, for those who wanted to cook more and often the convection oven, hotplate and BBQ are available.

The gardens provided an interesting place to walk as well as a bountiful fruit basket during our stay. Jai has many interests and has many suggestions if you ask her since she has lived on the island for a longtime and provides many books to supplement your own information and research. Travelling from this unit to other parts of the island was easy and we were able to go in all directions as well as visiting and enjoying Kappa and the local beaches. The bird life (including the infamous Kauai roosters) was part of the charm of this unit. The beach toys, snorkelling gear and chairs were plentiful and easy to access.

I hope to return to Kauai and will plan my visit around the availability of this peaceful unit and spend more time enjoying Kauai. Thanks Jai for the lovely stay.
