This studio was in a great location for everything we wanted to see on the east and north side of the island. It is in a residential neighborhood with its own entrance and tucked away below the main house. The views of the mountains and the distant ocean were great, the island style decorations were fun, especially the hula girl lamps. The bed was comfortable and the unit was clean and quiet, except for the bullfrog and chickens. Once we figured out what the bullfrog was we were fine. We didn't need the air conditioner but the fans were quiet, efficient, and very much appreciated. However, we could have used some fresh bath soap, tissues and some paper towels or napkins since we did eat in several times. The coffee pot was old and stained, the picnic cooler's zipper was broken, and the new ipod clock radio was not set to the correct time. The owner never appeared but answered her phone quickly when we reported in. All minor issues but would have given this review a 5 star rating.

Owner response: A great location, clean unit, quick response time! Short visits pass quickly sometimes we do not see guests, the unit is fairly private... There is also a Coffee Press and coffee grinder. The coffee maker works perfect! We do not leave papertowels or Napkins or soap because we recycle and have plenty of New clean kitchen towels. It is far too wasteful, these things can be purchased your own if is a must. Most people prefer their own soap too. Texts & email are immediately answered, if I had known about the cooler it would've been replaced. There are now 2 new ones. The clock, electricity goes out occassionally...thats completely out of my control :)

Rainbow Ridge is beautiful and so nice!
Thanks Julie! :) The studio is huge! The King bed is fit for a Queen and King, so comfy! This place exceeded our expectation... such a treat after a hard day of sightseeing... spectacular views and yes we saw rainbows! It is the perfect HOME away from home, with just the right location to head off North or South. We love this place, I hope to come back again someday. Kauai is such an amazing place. Aloha and Thanks for everything! Rebecca and Tim

We stayed at No Ka Oi between Christmas and New Year's (2012). The views from the studio are amazing and even more breathtaking than the pictures posted here. The studio is located in Kapaa, which makes a great base for exploring the rest of the island - easy to get to the North Shore and to the South and West (for the Waimea Canyon). Also located about 10 minutes away from the Sleeping Giant mountain, which is an amazing hike with views of the whole island from its peak. Restaurants are a 5 minute drive away - lots of great breakfast spots in downtown Kapaa, and we particularly liked Java Kai and Chicken in a Barrel! Booking was very easy - Julie, the owner, was very prompt responding to email and I was able to pay using Paypal. Julie was able to accommodate a late check-out for us, which we really appreciated as it allowed us to squeeze in more beach time on our last day in Kauai. Unit is very clean, has air conditioning if you choose to use it, lots of towels, beach towels, and beach equipment (chairs, boards). We would definitely stay here again if we're lucky enough to come back to Kauai. Thank you, No Ka Oi!

We had the best stay here :) The king size bed is fit for a king! As we stepped inside this place it is much bigger and better than the photos show. Location and ammenities are perfect. We loved the garden island!! Everyday an adventure, to come here at the end of each day was great!! The time went too fast. Fresh coconuts and WOW....

Mahalo Julie, We were pleasantly surprised to find No Ka Oi so perfect for our stay on Kauai! What a terrific place! The views are so great and the place is immaculate, with amazing decor. We loved staying here and truly felt like we were in a hawaiian hidaway! The Cal-King bed was fit for a King and Queen! Thanks for the reasonable pricing for what we got. No extra charge for staying till 8pm on our ck-out day. Thanks again and we'll see you again!

Julie, Had a fantastic extended stay at No ka Oi! Your place was very comfortable. Quite a bit larger than the photos show, nice deck, views were great, panoramic green hills, ocean was calming in the distance. It was hard to leave after 60 days, thanks for the deal on the long term rental. Ill be back next year. Fresh cocos were a huge plus and all the aloe growing around the unit sure helped my sunburnt skin! Love Kauai and the rainbows were plentiful. Thanks for everything!! Jeffrey
