I work in the healthcare profession for over 27 years. And have enjoyed going to Kauai for years. purchased this studio in 2005

Why chose Kapaa

We fell in love with this property, waking up to the sunrises, going to sleep to the sound of the waves and to have a place of such healing. No cliffs to walk down to when wanting to put you toes in the sand. No crowds to beat when wanting your perfect spot in the sand. Never having to get in the car to see a view, take a hike, a walk or a bike ride. It is all right here. White sandy beaches, lush green mountains and valleys are all around. The consistently warm weather all year long makes this a place unique. No massive or over-expansive hotels or resorts here. The charm of Old Hawaiian simplicity is right here. The perfect location on the island. This is the starting point for the incredibly beautiful bike path. Some of the best local music all within walking distance. Central to all activities for the entire island. There is a very good reason why this is called the royal coconut coast! The weather is a great mix of the north and the south and allowing you to plan your days easily from this location. A life with no regrets is a life. So come and stay and enjoy as I know once you do you will come back year after year to be here.

I did not buy this property because of business reasons. I bought because I fell in love with it. Have a wonderful time in paradise.. I want to hear all about it.



What makes this studio unique

This is 'Old Hawaii', which is becoming so incredibly rare but not here. There is still that old hawaiian charm. This unit is centrally located to meet just about all your needs? If you want to shop, go out to eat, pick up a few groceries or visit the local farmers market then this is a perfect place to be.

Being privately managed we paid special attention to developing charm and comfort for our guests. Throughout the unit you will find that it is decorated and designed uniquely and tastefully. From the quality of the sheets to the art on the walls private units are special. We have all the extras-- yep things like luxury bath mats, rice cooker, wine glasses, umbrellas, hooks for beach towels, garlic press, coffee press.... We try to think of everything when it comes to the same benefits of a home we want you all to share in the same experience. The goal is for you to feel this is Home away from Home but in paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently stayed at Whale watchers in November for 6 nights and highly recommend staying at this lovely location. We had never booked anything other than hotels before, and now I am hooked with working with people like Mary when you reserve your vacations. Mary was so accommodating to work with and I truly felt that her home was our home. I also,followed her recommendations from bikes to rent: Coconut Coasters, to restaurants like Kauai pasta( the food is so awesome and the tables by the bar do have more ambiance). When you are going to Hawaii and want to choose somewhere laid back and right near the bike path, this is your spot! AND the bed is super comfy and that never happens at most locations! Thanks again Mary, Maholo!

Really on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location at the beach. It's also easy walks to great restaurants and coffee. (It's actually a unit at a nice condo/hotel resort.)

The owner communication was spot-on.

We preferred our stay here over our experience at the Westin Princeville.

Perfect Honeymoon Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for us to stay during the Kauai portion of our Honeymoon. Awesome beachfront access with pool next door and great restaurant just a short walk down the beach. Woke up to beautiful sunsets over the ocean every morning. All was great!

My wife and I stayed at Whale Watchers studio condo for four days and nights. This condo is right on the ocean. It's also on the ground floor so we didn't have to lug our luggage up and down steps. We enjoyed this location immensely and would stay here again in a heart beat.

Not exactly as advertised

  • 3 of 5

Pros.... The unit was clean, location was great, very laid back community, stocked with beach chairs/umbrellas, walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping.

Cons.... The unit needed to be updated, especially the bathroom. We were very close to the beach, however the beach wasn't swimmable and the pool is TINY so we had to drive to other beaches if we wanted to swim. It's advertised as free parking, however there are never any available parking spots. We stayed here for 7 days and we literally were not able to park in the designated parking lot once. Seriously, not once.

Did any of this ruin our vacation? Of course not, we were in Kauai!

Owner's Response: Aloha Lori Tortorella We are delighted you loved Kauai and that you thought the unit was clean, stocked with everything as advertised and that you were central as advertised to stores, restaurants and shops. It is a full bathroom, tub and shower, I do not want to change the bathroom as we like it. As for the parking- It is free and if Trees and or Lava Lounge has bands playing then if you get back too late it can be difficult to find a stall right in front however, no matter where else you parked it was free.
