Wailua cottage description

Li'i Lani, native Hawaiian for Little Heaven, is a beautiful 1 bedroom, full bath, full kitchen, cottage nestled in the middle of gorgeous Wailua Homesteads. Wake up to fantastic views of lushly green Kauai, and experience a one-of-a-kind opportunity to live as a local in this gorgeous cottage amongst mountains! Enjoy the convenience of being centrally located to all major activities and attractions, while staying off the beaten path in luxurious home-away-from-home comfort. Live in luxury while taking in the beauty of upcountry Kauai -- truly an Aloha experience!

1 bedroom, full bath, full kitchen, and living area, with laundry amenities (washer and dryer). Newly remodeled throughout, paint, carpeting, tile, and all brand new furnishings and appliances. This includes a Cal King iComfort bed, two flat screen TVs, Blu-Ray DVD player, Belgique pots and pans, fully stocked kitchen appliances, and gas stove and oven. Also, right outside your island cottage is an herb garden, which guests are welcomed to utilize, as well as a gas grill and outdoor seating area where you can enjoy BBQ lunch or dinner like the a Kama'aina (local).

First impressions are important, as are the tiny details. You can rest assured that Li'i Lani will always be exceptionally cleaned especially for your arrival. With this same idea in mind we want our guests to feel welcome and comfortable, as if they truly have a little home on the island, so we strive to provide any and all amenities one would utilize in everyday life. Upon your arrival each guest is greeted by a lovely welcome package with fresh flowers, island goodies, and a special homemade treat!

If you are dreaming of relaxing and adventuring in an island paradise, this is the place for you. There are countless activities on this beautiful Garden Island, and our centralized location gives you the prime opportunity to experience as many as possible without falling into the 'tourist trap.' Located near charming Kapa'a, explore the quaint town, grab some delicious food, or rent a bicycle to meander about the streets or the newly installed 9-mile bike/walking path along the Coconut Coast and see the sights -- including the legendary Coco Palms! Swim or learn to surf at Kalapaki Beach, a wonderful place with gentle surf and gorgeous views of Nawiliwili Harbor. Head north to see the beautiful Limahuli Gardens in Ha’ena, or to jump from the Hanalei Pier into beautiful Hanalei Bay, Hike Hanakapi’ai, visit the Kilauea Lighthouse and view many of our island birds, or shop at various little boutiques and stores offering a variety of souvenirs and island wear so you'll be able to take a bit of the island home with you. Go South to Po'ipu, otherwise known as The Hollywood by the Sea, where there is shopping in abundance and many choices for fine or local dinning experiences, and a calm and gentle beach perfect for swimming. There's also ample opportunity to snorkel and explore the island's beautiful and pristine waters on gorgeous beaches such as Tunnels Beach. Create memories to last a lifetime by swimming alongside beautiful tropical fish and legendary sea turtles! Explore the Na Pali Coast by boat (available for booking almost everywhere), or hike its challenging but worthwhile trails in order to see nature at its finest! Get a taste of traditional island culture with many locally produced luaus that offer both entertainment and local food!

We are located two minutes away from Nounou (Sleeping Giant) hiking trail, where you can enjoy an intermediate level hike across and/or up this legendary figure of our island home.

Discounts will be offered to guests for one-on-one surf lessons with Todd Higashi, owner of Surfing Kauai, with over 40 years of surfing experience.

Sink your toes into the sand or lace up your hiking boots knowing that there's a lovely little cottage waiting for you to come home to!

              Car: Necessary

              The greatest part about staying in the Wailua area is the central location. You can easily travel to the north or south or west side of the island. You may want to consider one of the fabulous Luas or ATV tours or a zip line adventure. If that seems a little too much then take a drive around the island and catch the view of waterfalls.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1988

              About the owner: Deani and Todd Higashi have been residents of the Wailua Homesteads for nearly 30 years. Both locals of this gorgeous island, they have chosen to raise their five children and two grandchildren nestled amongst the lush greenery of Kauai. Todd, a longtime surfing instructor, spends his days teaching young and old alike to learn to surf the beautiful waters, and Deani works overlooking and maintaining gorgeous properties around the Garden Island. Both love spending time with their beautiful 'ohana!

              Why the Owner Chose Wailua:
              Upon seeing the Wailua Homesteads, Tood and Deani fell instantly in love and knew this was the place to raise their family together. Away from the hustle and bustle of Kapa'a and other nearby towns, this upcountry farmland estate provided a safe, quiet place for their multiple children and grandchildren to play safely and enjoy true island living. The seperate cottage was built in 1990 as a longterm rental on the edge of the property and remodeled just last year, and Deani and Todd decided to turn it into a vacation rental in order to provide more opportunity for others to experience beautiful Kauai!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Quiet, clean, and off the beaten path, this cottage provides you with ample opportunity to disappear into local culture and get away from tourists! Listen to the lush sounds of local tropical birds and animals -- no traffic here! Enjoy true country living in the lap of luxury. Aloha and Mahalo!
