About Martie Law

My name is Martie Law and I am the property manager for Malu Kauai, a beautiful Kauai cottage. I was born and raised on Kauai after my family arrived from California in 1969. My grandfather, father and several uncles were all in the construction industry, running several successful General Contracting companies over the last 45+ years. I am a full time real estate broker with Oceanfront Sotheby's International Realty in Lihue, mother of one, and love architecture, history, nature and photography.

Ed and Barb are the owners of Malu Kauai (and happen to live next door) and have been long time family friends. They love Niumalu for its central location and small community feel. Ed is meticulously clean and Barb has an amazing affinity for hospitality. They make the perfect vacation rental owners and are happy to share their cottage with you.

Why Martie Law chose Līhuʻe

Niumalu is a small rural town within the Lihue district. Lihue being where the airport is, the hospital, the mall, theater, seat of government, etc. makes it centrally located between the two ends of the island. Kauai essentially has one road to get to the North Shore or the West side so Lihue sits equal distance from either direction. Getting to and from the airport is a breeze with no traffic and there are lots of shopping, restaurants and historic attractions in Lihue.

A venture to the North Shore will be approx. 50 minutes depending on where your final destination is. Visit Hanalei Bay, Kee Beach, Hanakapiai Trail for an exquisite North Shore experience.

A drive South will only take 20 minutes to Poipu Beach Park, National Tropical Botanical Gardens and more. Visit shops and restaurants at Kukuiula and get everything you need. Then catch the sunset at the end of the day.

Go West with a 45 minute drive and visit some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

What makes this house unique

Staying at Malu Kauai allows you exclusive use of a small home with all the amenities to match. Parking is easy, and directly outside the unit. There is no formal check in process, only a lock box at the front door. Laundry is in a small room outside the house and you have exclusive use of the entire house including your own lanai for BBQ'ing. Much better than a hotel, and cheaper too!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed the house you set aside for us. I liked it better than the B & B we stayed at in Hanalei, mainly because of the A/C box in the bedroom, but also because of its location (and the bed was better, too). And we liked the kitchen, and the basket was a nice touch too. When we come back to the island in the future I will shop with you first!

Welcome Home

  • 5 of 5

This perfect cottage feels more like living on Kauai than vacationing. Everything is provided for you. A few groceries and you're all set. This cottage is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood and ideally located for a relaxing get away.

Lovely cottage; clean and tidy.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely, and had no issues at all with cottage itself. The only thing for us - and minor - was the noise level. The traffic flow thru seemed quite heavy at times, especially during the morning hours. Understandable though being that you are staying with locals. The cottage is private though, and very comfortable.

The Roosters are crazy noisy too, but that we had no issues with. That was unique and all the wildlife we found very interesting.

We live in the country and so we are used to extreme quiet. If you live in the city, and are used to that kind of noise, this cottage will be perfect.

You are in Hawaii. One makes the best of the surroundings. As long as clean and tidy, and good communication with property manager, it's all good!!

Property Manager great to deal with.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mona! It was a pleasure having you. I'm so glad you had a good time. And yes those chickens are an island-wide problem and the Achilles tendon for all of us. We can thank our past Hurricane Iniki for that. They were all displaced from chicken farms after the hurricane and no one has figured out a humane way to control them. I guess it adds to the ambiance.... maybe. Please do come back. Hope you had a safe flight home. aloha, martie

Well appointed and cute cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely rental cottage. The welcome basket with island treats was a very nice touch. The cottage has everything you will need for a wonderful vacation and the front deck is perfect for relaxing after an active day. Its location is in a good central spot to travel to everything Kauai has to offer with relative ease. Martie was a pleasure to deal with, very responsive and accommodating. My husband and I are frequent visitors to all of the Hawaiian islands and we would book this cottage again. Mahalo for sharing your lovely property Martie!

Clean and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Kauai. The Nawiliwili location was conveniently located; halfway to Waimea Canyon and the Napali coast. The cabin was perfect for our active family of 4. Thank you.

Fantastic Get Away Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for us! It all began with the tasteful yet simple decor. After a spending the day at the beach, hiking or exploring Waimea Canyon, it was so nice to come "home" and relax. It was well stocked with supplies and beach necessities. The washer, dryer and BBQ were a plus. The Times Market was close along with the Nawiliwilli beach. It is centrally located and only five minutes to the airport. You will hopefully enjoy the roosters waking you up and you are on a local bypass road. Neither bothered us, it just added to the ambiance of Kauai. We would highly recommend staying there. Mahalo!
