Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Wendy's place was amazing. It had everything needed: well equipped kitchen, dining table, couch, comfy bed, perfect bathroom size, garden and even a washing machine. We loved it. Wendy also had the fridge stocked up for us and there were fruits and sweets on the table. She also had tons of material and guide about the island which greatly helped us.

Thanks for making the stay with you so special Wendy!

We were very pleased with our stay! Wendy was so kind and willing to help us in any way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. She always got back to you right away if you had any questions.

She provided fresh Island fruits, chocolate's, Kona Coffee, muffins, drinks etc. She put a lot of love in her efforts to help us feel at home and welcome.

I will stay here again😎Thanks Wendy

We had a nice stay and would recommend. Wendy was so nice and went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. She left us all types of yummy goodies. The place is charming and has everything you might need. Location is good because it is mid-island. Thank you for evening.

Delightful Place, Delightful person

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on Kaua’i from May 16-23, 2016 was made all the more enjoyable by Wendy sharing her home as well as her local insight and advice with my wife and myself. Our positive experience began even prior to our trip as emails and text messages were answered quickly and informatively. Wendy adjusted her schedule to accommodate our arrival; then spent about an hour or more showing us around the property and addressing our numerous questions or requests for advice. The sizeable binder of island information she has complied was a valuable asset to us then and throughout our stay.

Our level of the house was clean, comfortable, decorated appropriate to the locale and equipped with all the closet space, appliances, dishes and utensils we required. The refrigerator and a welcome basket were thoughtfully stocked with daily necessities and island delicacies. Two ceiling fans are available. However, during our stay at least, open windows and the trade winds provided adequate air circulation and kept the temperature inside pleasant. I appreciated the availability of a CD player and a collection of Hawaiian music CD’s in a variety of styles. It was an unexpected opportunity to learn more of that aspect of the culture. Another pleasant surprise was the chance to experience the sense of separateness and privacy that architectural design and landscaping can achieve in the midst of a densely built neighborhood typical to many such communities on the islands.

The location of the house on the island was also an advantage to us. Our plans included visiting sites in the Eastern, Southern and Western regions of Kaua’i so the Lihue area seemed to us a point centrally located to the destinations that were of interest to us. What we found when we arrived in Hanama’ulu was that we were: a 15 minute drive from the airport; 10 minutes to Rice St.; 5 minutes to Hanama’ulu Beach; 20 minutes to Lydgate Beach Park/Wailua River; 45 minutes to Waimea Canyon and a 10 minute walk to the neighborhood seafood market.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ko Malmanui Hale and enthusiastically recommend you consider staying there as well.

Exactly what we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Wendy was wonderful to work with and was very accommodating to our travel schedule. Its central location was great for getting around the island. It was only a few minutes from the airport and the main road that would take you north, south or west! The listing description was great and we had no unexpected issues. The outdoor shower was a great amenity to have since we came back very sandy and didn't have to track it through the house. We would definitely stay here again and have already told several of our friends to stay here as well! Thanks Wendy!
