Why Bob or Marianne (Marianne speaks German) chose Kapaa
Kauai Vacation Rental Kapaa Downtown Location of `Ohi`a Kai Cottage and Hale is ideal for vacationers, business visitors, and residents seeking short-term housing. Managed and operated by owners Bob and Marianne, it is on a quiet lot one very short block, mountain side, of Kuhio Highway, within convenient walking distance of the ocean, several churches, and the shopping and dining pleasures of downtown Kapa`a. To reach the ocean, simply cross Kuhio Highway and walk through Pono Kai Resort. By walking one block north on Kuhio Highway, one is in the center of quaint Kapa’a town, with restaurants, shops, banks and a handful of other local businesses. If you are not familiar with Kuhio Highway, it is helpful to know that it is not a busy thoroughfare, but a two-lane road with a 25 mph speed limit with lots of crosswalks where it passes through Kapa`a. One block to ocean where the swimming is great.

Marianne and Bob are absolutely wonderful people! They were very accommodating, friendly, and flexible. Marianne was wonderful with my two small children. Great stay for families.
Bob and Marianne were very nice and they wrote a sweet message for me to arrive to. I also appreciated the detailed directions they gave, check in was very easy. I was disappointed in the very loud construction noise but I don't think that will be a problem for future guests. Also, I think maybe someone should go through the pans and bigger dishes as there were spider webs on them and they weren't very clean. Also, make sure the back door is locked, I had a lady walk in on me when I was home alone. She said she was trying to get to a doctor's office. So weird. There were fresh flowers which were lovely and I was pleasently surprised that there were 2 beds and a sofa, not just 1. The A.C was such a nice feature to have. They also have a lot beach equipment which I really appreciated (I would bring bug spray with you when go outside to the laundry room). My sister felt the beds were very comfortable. Overall, I'm grateful to have found this place for the price and to have accommodating hosts.
Great walk score.
Comfortable and homey cottage in great area of Kapaa. Easy walk to downtown shops. The hot water heater was out, but the owners were very responsive and accessible, and compensated fairly. Some ants and a dank smell from the throw down rugs, but we liked the place overall. Thank you
Quaint Lodging near beach
This being our first time to Kauai, we really weren't sure where to stay, but this place did the trick. Downtown and beach were both within walking distance. The cabin itself is small but has everything you need. Clean, safe, and the owners even brought us fruit! Would stay here again.
great location, very basic accomodations
one star for great hosts, another star for the short walk to the town of Kapaa, but the cottage was very basic, could use a remodel, but comfortable beds, needs new shower head and not good if you like to cook or use a kitchen. Kind of like an old hippie pad. If you like roughing it and want very basic it's great, if you want a nicer place keep looking.
Had the best time at this VRBO! Perfect location to wander around Kapaa without the need for a vehicle. House is well maintained and the perfect size for 2. Great on-site amenities for a vacation and comfortable beds! Highly recommend this property!
Kauai is rapidly becoming the island of choice by return visitors
"Kauai is the real Hawaii. Spacious, breezy, tropical "home away from home." shave ice, seaside bicycles, and trendy shopping. Conveniently located a block from the ocean, halfway between Kauai's North and South shores. Charming Kapa`a town was recently dubbed number 1 by TripAdvisor. Kauai the Garden Island is a true pacific gem, from it's sculpted mountain ridges, lush forest, and spectacular beaches to the nature grandeur of Waimea Canyon and awe-inspiring scenery of the Na Pali Coast.
Ohia Kai Special Cottage is rated as an ideal location to travel to all parts of Kauai as Kapaa is halfway from the end of the road in both directions making it easy to visit one side or the other in the same day.
