Owner's Response: Mahalo Gary & Luanne, It is so nice to see you both every year. One beautiful thing about having a Homestay is when we have the opportunity to build relationships with visitors who come to Kauai as an annual event and then it turns into a friendship. Enjoy the rest of your vacation on the east side. Thank you for the lovely review. A Hui Hou, Darryl & Julie Chong

Julie and her husband were very great hosts! The room was great and so much better than a hotel!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! I’d definitely stay with them again. The private entry, mini kitchen, spacious room was wonderful! The only thing I wasn’t a fan of is the owners work truck was very loud in the mornings but besides that, I recommend it to anyone

Owner's Response: Aloha Elijah & Erin, Thank you for your review of our Plantation Style Studio. It was nice to meet you both and we are glad you enjoyed your stay and would consider staying with us again in the future. We normally try to greet our guests when they arrive and give them a personal tour and briefing of the property and the neighborhood . Unfortunately we missed that opportunity with you both and so you were not aware of Darryl's truck starting up in the morning. He does start up for just a couple of seconds and is out the driveway but if you are not expecting that, then it can be a surprise. Most of our guests have no problem with it and realize ahead of time that they will be staying in a residential area where owners and neighbors will be going to work in the mornings however that is definitely one of the factors that we keep in mind when we set our prices for our Homestay. A beautiful place to stay that is budget minded while also giving a local flavor to our guests. Hope you can come again.

Cute, convenient and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Cute studio with all that you really need, including lots of beach gear (towels, chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie boards). Convenient location to Poipu, Koloa and the main road to get to anywhere else on the island. Super clean, which is a must for me, and well appointed! Very welcoming hosts, who also respect your privacy. Overall we had a great stay! Thank you Julie and Darryl!

Good value for the money

  • 4 of 5

Overall, a good value. We found the studio to be clean, beautifully decorated including fresh tropical bouquets, with a private porch and yard. The bed was comfortable and the linens fresh. Plenty of hot water and shampoos,body wash, lotions in the shower, lots of towels. Julie even left a generous gift package with lots of Hawaiian goodies. Complaints: a few noisy early mornings due to the co-owner's diesel truck, no sink in the bathroom, and the only cooking facilities besides the coffee pot were a microwave and a propane grill in the yard.

Very beautiful studio!!

  • 5 of 5

Julie and Darryl were wonderful hosts. The gift bag was extremely nice upon arrival. The studio was very tastefully decorated and clean. The backyard was absolutely breathtaking. The home had everything you needed for the beach and was located close to stores and beaches. We will definitely go back in the near future. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking.
