About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Newly built one-bedroom suite in Kauai's 'upcountry' at the base of the Makaleha mountains on a one-acre property. Wake up to the sound of birds and the beautiful view of the Makaleha waterfalls from the property. The peace and quiet is ideal for vacationers, business visiters, and residents seeking short-term housing. Newlyweds love the privacy and tranquility the property offers. The suite has a private bath and fully equipped kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave oven, blender, toaster, counter-top stove and coffee maker with separate dining and living areas. Island-style furnishings with ceiling fans in each room along with the granite counters and travertine tile add elegance to the already breathtaking surroundings. The bedroom is furnished with a Cal-king bed with a Tempurpedic mattress. Amenities include satellite TV, a DVD player with a DVD library for your viewing pleasure, and wireless internet. Beach towels, boogie boards, ice cooler and beach chairs are provided as well.

From the outside sitting area enjoy the lush tropical vegetation including banana, pineapple, mango, papaya, bamboo, ginger flowers, and palm trees that surround the property. The property was recently featured on the Discovery Channel's series Buying Hawaii. Look for us in the episode of 'Flying Kauai.' We rocked it.

Quaint downtown Kapaa is located only 3.5 miles away. There you will find shopping, restaurants, bars, coffee shops and grocery stores. Kapaa is conveniently located midway between the North Shore and Poipu.

Why Julie Mann chose Kauai

The scenery at the base of the Makaleha mountains is unrivaled -- from the sublime rainbows that greet you in the morning to the 1,000-foot waterfalls out the back door to the planetarium-like night skies. The property is expansive, the setting is rural and it is very private.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is minutes away from 'downtown' Kapaa where shopping, restaurants, local watering holes and beaches are all close by.

View of mountain from the backyard was spectacular and the ducks and donkey was an added entertainment. Little bit of a drive to downtown Kapaa but easy once you get use to it. Thank you Julie for an enjoyable stay.

Better than perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We were delighted by everything this accommodation offered...a few minutes away from Kapaa, (a lovely town), an amazing view of the mountains with lovely birds and cool breezes. There were 3 ducks that greeted us daily and made us feel part of the family. The huge bed and couch were very comfortable. Not having a full kitchen gave me the perfect excuse to eat out or have my husband grill our dinners. There was also beach ware for us to use as we wished, (boogie boards, cooler, mats and towels). This place was a steal for the price and couldn't have been more perfect for us!

Thank you to host Julie, and puppy Pilot!

Enjoyable nights on Kauai

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We recently spent a couple of relaxing nights at Julies and enjoyed every minute. The location seems like being in the country with Duxter and the two Black ducks. The mountain, sleeping giant, a stream across the back yard and a stable with a donkey in the background, what a relaxing and enjoyable view.

Beach chairs, coolers, wet suit and many other things to help you enjoy Kauai. Julie had fresh fruit for us and gave us DVDs about Kauai. Great trip great hostess. Thanks Julie, Robert, Mary and Jacob

Very easy to find and great overall location

Beautiful scenery right in the back yard ( waterfalls can be seen after a rain)

The bed was very comfortable

Parking was ample and covienent

It was quiet and peaceful

The bbq was great to grill up fresh fish and veggies

We will be sure to return!!

Spent a month at this property.

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

We liked the location in the hills as it cooled off very nicely for sleeping. The suite was very comfortable as was the bed. The accommodations were adequate for two people. The fruit and vegetables brought to the door was delicious and appreciated. Suggestions for additions to the suite would be an electric kettle, more dinner plates, dish cloths and tea towels. Would recommend if you want a quiet, secluded location.
