"Our family of 15 (some as old as 80 y/o, some as young as 16) had the most beautiful week in paradise. As amazing as this posting makes the house seem, the house itself is actually more incredible. We never felt crowded, not once, as this house is full of spacious nooks to lounge and relax. For someone who loves a good kitchen, this one does not disappoint, and we found that it was the focal point of many evenings at home. In fact, we felt like we'd done a disservice to the rest of the island, because we found ourselves wanting to stay "in" every night to gather around the warm glow of the kitchen and to watch the waves from the comfort of the beautiful porch. There are an abundance of outdoor amenities right at the house that we all enjoyed: water-shoes, kayaks, lawn games, bbq, hammock, and we found ourselves jumping from activity to activity, in an attempt to fit it all in. Oh, and the beach felt practically private - what a treat! We honestly felt like we hit the jackpot with this house and the house manager was a pleasure to work with, in all ways possible.
One thing that we had not considered before arrival was the location, but it actually turned out to be perfect for our needs. We felt close enough to the sights of the north shore (20-30 min away) and south shores (a little longer), but being so close to Kapaa, we were able to explore the more "local" Kauai. And, every morning on our daily walk around the quiet neighborhood, we had beautiful views of the ocean and the mountains. We felt like we had a truly authentic stay, and we cannot wait to plan our return visit!"
