Comfy and Convenient in Kapaa
"Wonderfully laid-back accommodations, steps to Kapaa town's cool shops and eateries. Stayed for 2 nights in the upstairs duplex. Airy, shady, beach-cottage style with large open lanai. It's not on the beach, but that's only a short walk away. If you want a home-away-from-home place to relax, this is it. Owners Marianne and Bob are the sweetest people, brought us fruits from their yard! We rented bikes from Hele On Bike rental across the street and pedaled the Ka Ala Hele Makalae path along the coast. Beautiful views, easy ride, a must do. Got some Ono Ono Shave Ice after! Highly recommend Hemingway's Art Cafe for breakfast. Dinner at Hukilau Lanai at Coconut Plantation MarketPlace was also nice."

"Loved the condo. Location was central to everything and the view was fabulous. Walking distance to tasty bakeries on Papaloa road and Kilauea fish market next to condo is darn good. Also walking distance to wailua beach (we had the beach to ourselves). Owner was a gracious host during the whole rental process. Will definitely return on our next trip to Kauai."

"Second time at Kapaa Sands. Everything is run well and kept nicely in the complex. This condo is great for 2 people who want to stay in a central location and be right on the ocean. You can walk for miles along the beachfront path right from your condo. Full kitchen is well-equipped and a good size for a studio. We cooked and had everything we needed. And the weather is lovely! Owner responsive and helpful. Will return!"

"This lovely cottage and its hosts truly are represented accurately in the post and the reviews posted.
My initial concerns: mosquitos & proximity of the hosts. Holly was upfront w/tips to combat the mosquitos before our arrival and they were actually not bad around the cottage itself. H&R are connected BUT you’ve total privacy.
The cottage is very welcoming, charming and has everything a person could need to relax, be adventurous, enjoy a meal, do some reading, clean up for a night out or in...romantic, sit in the well taken care of spa, or just take in the surroundings on the lanai. The only item I could not find was a pen!
The property is clean, organized & the grounds were lovely. H&R’s sport shack is a huge cost savings AND car racks to transport kayaks. The garden was wonderful and at the time of our stay were treated to fresh bananas and papaya's and they were delectable! The waterfall area was quite lovely and quiet and would be great for either a yoga session or to meditate (I don't do either but my imagination went there!). The fur family was great too, we had a cat that would visit us daily and helped me not miss my fur baby back at home so much.
The location is about 4 miles from downtown Kapaa and it is wonderfully quiet and they have a great road that doesn't see much traffic which makes it great for taking a walk or a run. There are some horses across the way that are friendly and yes the chickens each morning are insane...but you can tune them out or just pretend they are reminding you to get up and enjoy your time on the island!
The hosts...Holly and Rick are wonderful. Holly was warm right from the first meeting and welcomed us with open arms. I felt an instant connection with her. They are genuine, thoughtful have a sense of humor and very respectful and truly understand the anticipated Aloha spirit.
I do not know what the hesitation would be to not enjoy Holly, Rick, their fur babies and this wonderful property they are beyond blessed to have and share with all of us.
Mahalo Holly and Rick - we had a relaxing and wonderful vacation!
