  • Paradise Found

    "After an extremely long flight we were absolutely overjoyed to open the door to this home and see the welcome tray and bottle of champagne. We were so content to sit and toast the wedding on the beach just yards from the home. What a great start to an outstanding month long vacation at this home. Then of course there was the view. As wonderful as it looks in pictures, one can not imagine it until experiencing it. It is breathtakingly beautiful. We were so content to just sit there and be mesmerized by its magnificence. The owner of this home is fortunate to have great employees in Jan and Eunice. Any questions or concerns were dealt with promptly. Once the water company had flooded the street and then a heavy rain followed, leaving a giant puddle in front of the house. Our son told us later that he witnessed a woman digging out drains in the street so the puddle could drain. We later found out it was Eunice. If I could give this home more than five stars I would. Kauai has so much to offer, but you will find yourself looking forward to getting back to Secret Cove at the end of the day. Don't even bother going anywhere else."

  • Dream honeymoon

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We stayed at Sandcastles for our honeymoon, and it was exceptional! It was a perfect, private location and still close to the town of Kapaa and other areas up the coast. The house was well maintained and clean. We will definately be finding a time to return to Kauai and stay here again!"

  • We stayed 6 weeks and recommend this apartment

    "We found our long term rental the old fashioned way: we found a location we liked, drove the road in the neighborhood, saw a vacation rental sign, called and were able to rent an apartment there for our entire stay. We couldn’t have been closer to the beach and the views and location were very special It cost (with negotiation) $4000 a month, including everything. It was a neighborhood on a street that dead-ended near our apartment where developers had not gotten involved. It was 1.4 miles from the main road (Hwy 56 or Kuhio Highway). We were 7.4 miles from Kapaa and generally the traffic was light until we got into town. There were three building units on a large, oceanfront property all owned by our landlady, Esther Medeiros. Our unit was two-story and our apartment was on the top floor. It was called Hibiscus Hale Lani (hibiscus under the sky). See the pictures of our Hibiscus Hale Lani on Essie’s other website. These were not luxurious properties; they were functional, perfectly situated and comfortable. Nice to hang out there! Our apartment was a one bedroom, one bath with two decks that ran the length of the apartment; one deck was on the ocean side and one on the garden side of the unit. Walking toward the ocean in the hallway there was an expansive ocean view provided by two large picture windows, with a sliding glass door in between. The room was a large rectangle with a kitchen and dining area on the left and on the right side: a sofa, an interesting mahogany and drift wood table that we used for a coffee table, and a flat screen TV on a TV table across from the sofa. We had cable TV and very good wi-fi in the apartment (our landlady, Essie, bought a new router for our apartment). Our kitchen had a refrigerator, a microwave, a blender, a toaster and a full 4-burner stove and oven. There were two sinks but no disposal or dishwasher. Audre could cook comfortably in this space and the kitchen was outfitted well enough. So she was happy. Dimitri got his beach house on the sand in a quiet, old-fashioned Hawaiian neighborhood (with good wi-fi and cable) so he was happy. Essie was a very good landlady. If ever there was a problem, we would e-mail her and she would fix it herself or send someone. She made sure that we were happy. Essie had a man come to spray for bugs and the apartment was fairly bug-free. We had geckos, of course. The sound of the waves at the shoreline on our Aliomanu Beach was a constant, calming sound."

  • What is not to love

    "We were two couples celebrating gratitude & blessings, and this home was perfect. We all tried to get the best photos of the awesome sunrise. The area is quiet away from crowds, yet not far to shop. The owners attention to details of guest comforts is exceptional. We enjoyed making our version of Moco Loco in the well equipped kitchen. The home is very clean & maintained, which is not easy on a beach. Time on the deck was beautiful as well as the mountain view on the front porch, and lots of beach walks. The water is very nice & great for a swim. All the reviews say it well. The photos are all great of this home it is very comfortable. The outdoor showers, very nice (gets all the sand off) one can even shower under the stars! Mahalo, it was a great time hope to return"
