Located on the sunniest side of Kauai, Hawaii's Garden Island, and away from the hustle and bustle of some of the more popular tourist areas, Mindy's Vacation Rental is a delightful island getaway within walking distance of a black sand beach.
Mindy's is a charming one-bedroom "second story apartment" with sleeping room for "two" people. Featuring a private deck and beautiful mountain views combined with a full kitchen, color television, ceiling fans throughout, it is the perfect mix of comfort and convenience.
Do not let another holiday pass by without experiencing Mindy's magical vacation rental for yourself!
Mindy's is an excellent escape for those who want to see the Waimea/Kokee area, as it is located at the base of breathtaking Waimea Canyon. Polihale State Park is another nearby favorite, a beautiful stretch of beach located on the western edge of the majestic Na Pali Coast. A variety of shops and stores (including fresh fish and produce markets) make preparing meals at home an anticipated treat. Or revel in the vast array of bistros and restaurants that dot the area, providing memorable and deliciously unique cuisine.
beautiful mountains views
We wanted to stay on the west side of Kauai close by my family residences in Waimea and PMRF for a family reunion and ash scattering of my late grandmother. This place was perfect for my girlfriend and I! Mindy and Dave were excellent hosts and showed us aloha from the moment we arrived. This upstairs apartment is surprisingly spacious with a good size deck perfect for lounging under the shade of an umbrella, and the trade winds and ceiling fans keep the rooms cool when it's blazing hot outside. The apartment came with everything you'll need for a day at the beach including coolers, umbrellas, chairs, beach towels and snorkel gear. The layout was perfect for the 2 of us with a comfortable living space- couch, coffee table, tv, a full kitchen- full size fridge, oven stovetop, microwave, sink and dishes, a whole bathroom/shower and comfy bedroom with plenty dresser and closet room. All the appliances worked adequately and the decor made it feel like home. We were even surprised with receiving Mindy's baked goods, the coffee cake was so Ono! Mahalo Mindy and Dave for providing the best living experience possible! We hope to be able to return some day again!
We had a great time staying in this wonderful location! Perfect for returning in the evenings after days along the south shore sights. So easy to get to Waimea Canyon from Mindy and Dave's apartment. They are great hosts - so friendly and knowledgable! The apartment had everything we needed to make our visit to Kauai amazing! We loved being able to grill and prepare meals in the kitchen. Ceiling fans and cross breezes make this spot very comfortable in the evenings!
Mindy and Dave are lovely hosts and made us feel very welcome. The apartment is spotless clean and has everything and more you need. We needed a nice and relaxing place after our adventure hike on the Kalalau trail and this apartment fit the bill. It was a wonderful week. Mahalo Mindy and Dave. Hope you see you soon again.
There is not much more that I can add to the other great reviews about Mindy and Dave's rental other than to support that everything that has been previously written is absolutely, 100% correct. The unit is immaculately maintained as are the grounds and the views toward the mountains in the morning are fantastic. Your hosts can't be beat and are about as nice as can be, welcoming you with delicious baked goods and providing anything you need from cooking needs, to books, to beach gear, and more. The proximity to Waimea Canyon for an early morning hike or to drive up to Kokee and hang out in the cool meadow on a hot day down at sea level is great and allows you the opportunity to visit at different times of the day, which I recommend. The cross breezes and ceiling fans, along with the most comfortable bed I've slept in a long time provided a great night's sleep after active days. Like others have mentioned, sunsets are only a few minutes walk to the beach and Waimea town has any food needs you might need. There are also several locally owned shops/cafes etc in town with a wide range of products. I guess to sum everything up, Mindy's is the perfect base for a Kauai get away for those who appreciate the more relaxed local flavor of the island's Westside as a means to experience true aloha. Thank you Mindy and Dave for a terrific week! Can't wait to be back...
Since English is only one of my second languages allow me to just simply state:
the previous review by Michael M says it all!!!
It was just plain outstanding.
An absolutely wonderful place to spend our 40th wedding anniversary.
Thank you, Mahalo, Dankeschön, Mindy and Dave!
My wife and I just got back a few days ago from spending 7 days of our first post-retirement vacation on Kauai. What can we say about how wonderful Mindy's is that hasn't already been said?...it's all true. Mindy's is immaculate and very comfortable. It's probably better than the pictures suggest.
We ate "in" for about half our meals making good use of the deck, propane grill and well equipped kitchen. We found the paperback library in the drawers of the TV stand and caught up on some reading on the beach and when we weren't out and about.
Mindy's is about a block from the beginning of Kekaha Beach, a few blocks from the "back road" to Waimea Canyon.
We had a great week exploring Kauai using Mindy's as our base. Even the North Shore is only an hour and a half or so drive. Most of the South and West shore sights and activities are within 15-40 minutes.
Waimea, about 2 miles East, has a good grocery open to 11 PM daily. The grocery also has a reasonable selection of beer, wine and spirits. There are a couple of eateries in Waimea as well.
If "beaching it" is your thing, the apartment has chairs, umbrellas, coolers and even snorkeling gear. The beaches are minutes away.
Mindy and Dave are the perfect hosts...warm and welcoming They were very helpful with suggestions when asked and never intrusive. We arrived to fresh fruit, home baked muffins and a box of (chocolate covered) macadamia nuts...mmm
Do yourself a favor, don't bother trying to find anywhere else.
