Peaceful Gardens

  • 4 of 5

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.

I don't usually wright reviews but we had such a great stay here at Honua Lani Gardens I wanted to share.

Our rental was clean and quiet with a perfectly equipped kitchen. We really enjoyed our massage in the hidden jungle bungalow and the gardens were stunning with few mosquitos. Jai was accommodating to our needs but let us enjoy our private space. She was a great host.

We will definitely be returning to honualani gardens as soon as we can.. Such a beautiful property off the beaten path but close to town.

Aloha and Mahalo Jai!

I highly recommend the massage. The sound of the birds singing and a gentle breeze blowing through the trees topped it off eve though we visited during the warmest and most humid season, the cabin and the massage hit were comfortable.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jodi, I am so delighted you enjoyed the massage and the location and birds etc. The condo does stay very cool in hot weather. I think it is because the sun is over the top of the house early in the day and the heat does not get through to it. The wood walls and floors also keep it cool. Thank you and I hope you can return soon for another garden massage.
