`Ohi`a Kai Hale is your ideal home away from home while visiting Kauai. Centrally located, it is perfect for exploring the Garden Island as well as relaxing after a long afternoon at the beach. Fully-furnished, with two large bedrooms with a king bed in each, bathroom with double vanity, roomy full kitchen, and dining area that opens onto a large living area leading to a spacious lanai. Amenities include large-screen television with digital cable, ceiling fans in all rooms, towels, sheets, dishes and other kitchenware, iron and ironing board. We have Turbo internet (up to 20/2Mbps) with our WiFi secure network.

Ohia Kai Hale has large windows to let the beautiful Kaua`i sun into each room. Tropical vegetation, including palms, mango, noni, mock orange, banana, and panax abounds on the property. On the lower level there is lush landscaping with a gas BBQ grill and laundry room with high efficiency Maytag washer and dryer for available for guest use.

The location of `Ohi`a Kai is ideal for vacationers, business visitors, and residents seeking short-term housing. It is fairly quiet; ubiquitous Kauai chickens and roosters and nearby neighbors may add aural color to the sound environment. The lot is one block from Kuhio Highway (no highway noise), within convenient walking distance of the beach, several churches, and the shopping and dining pleasures of downtown Kapa`a. It is approximately ten miles from Lihue Airport, a 20-minute drive at non-peak times.

Some popular visitor destinations to the north and their approximate driving times include Kealia Beach (5 minutes), `Anini Beach (25 minutes), Kilauea Lighthouse (20 minutes), Limahuli National Tropical Garden (55 minutes), Hanalei (45 minutes), and Haena State Park at the end of the road (60 minutes). Haena is where you will find Ke`e Beach and the trailhead to the spectacular Na Pali Coast trail.

To the south heading toward Lihue, Coconut Marketplace (5 minutes), Lydgate Beach Park (10 minutes), turn right at Coco Palms to see `Opaeka`a Falls (15 minutes). When you are back on Kuhio Highway heading toward Lihue, turn right to Hanamaulu to see Wailua Falls (30 minutes), Kukui Grove Mall (22 minutes), or continue on Kuhio Highway to Poipu (30 mins.) Back on the highway see the largest coffee plantation in the USA, Kauai Coffee. At the southwestern end of the road is Kekaha, with a very large and private beach, or before you get that far, turn right to see Waimea Canyon.

Your hosts, Bob and Marianne,are the owners and have lived on Kaua`i for fourteen years and will be happy to answer questions and make recommendations related to your special needs and interests, including hiking, kayaking,surfing, kid-friendly places, churches, shopping, dining, activities, Hawaiian culture, medical facilities, alternative health and personal care services. Please e-mail us or call us.

To reach `Ohi`a Kai from Lihue Airport, turn right at the traffic light as you’re leaving the airport. This puts you on Kuhio Highway headed north. Continue straight for about nine miles. Along the way you will cross the Wailua River, pass the Coconut Marketplace shopping and dining complex on your right, ans soon you will see Safeway on your left and the Waipouli Beach Resort on your right. Keep driving! Shortly thereafter you will come to a traffic light in front of a small shopping complex with a Big Save grocery store and Shell gas station on your left. The Post Office is in that complex! A few blocks further and you will see a left-turn only lane in front of the Latter Day Saints church.
There is no traffic light here, but you will see the entrance to Pono Kai resort directly to your right and a sign welcoming you to downtown Kapa`a in the grassy area ahead. Make a sharp left onto `Ohi`a Street. Note that this is a 90° turn! Don't make a soft left onto Ulu Street, a common error for newcomers. `Ohi`a Kai is the third and last house on the right side of the street. Our property faces the parking lot of the LDS church (white church with blue roof).

`Ohi`a Kai is clearly marked with green signs. Park in the space designated for `Ohi`a Kai Hale. If we are not there when you arrive we will have a lock box on the front door. If you plan to arrive in the evening, contact us prior to your arrival so that we can give you the lock box combination.

We also have a cozy 1-BR unit on the same property, `Ohi`a Kai Cottage. See our VRBO listing #95386 or visit our website for more details.

For more information, please visit our website at ohiakai.com. We prefer inquries to be made via e-mail. If you need to call us, please be aware of the time difference. During Daylight Savings Time, Hawaii is three hours earlier than California, six hours earlier than Eastern Standard Time. We prefer NOT receiving calls before 10:00 a.m. or after 10:00 p.m. Hawaii Time.

with warm aloha, Bob and Marianne. In Hawaiian, 'hale' means 'house,' 'kai' means 'by the water' and '`ohi`a' is a native tree that grows on all the Hawaiian Islands.
