This guest suite is exactly like the one next door that the VRBO Bear visited recently. He agreed to write the following review for us:

'While I didn't stay in this suite, my friends and I stayed in the home next door and visited Gary and Andrea, the owners, several times during our stay. This is a brand-new beautiful property with identical views and access to the Marriott Beach Club just down the street. The entire front of this suite opens to the bay allowing lazy mornings drinking coffee and watching the early beachcombers and surfers, as well as spectacular evening sunsets. The private entrance, washer/dryer and refreshments wet-bar make this luxury suite an excellent place to stay either on your own or with friends in the property next door. My next trip to Kauai will be to this suite, so expect to see my picture here in the future!'

This property also has another contemporary luxurious townhome on three levels next door that is available for larger groups. Please contact us for additional information.

One of the owners is a Hawaii Licensed Real Estate Broker.

About Andrea Lincoln

I love warm weather, the ocean, and palm trees - who doesn’t, right? My husband and I were married on Kauai, honeymooned here, and fell in love with it. A few years later we decided to move here to live in paradise in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. When we first saw this property we immediately noticed the opportunity to build something spectacular on this bluff overlooking Kalapaki Bay. As for me, I’m an architectural designer, so I added my dreams, designs and visions to the planning and eventually building of a duplex villa, one unit for us and one for a very good friend of ours. And now I’m directly involved in the marketing and management of our little slice of paradise.

Andrea Lincoln purchased this Villa in 2008

Why Andrea Lincoln chose Nawiliwili Bay

This location is the best-known secret on the island. Our Kauai vacation rental suite is just five minutes (2 miles) from the Lihue Airport, and located at the heart of the island — 20+ minutes to Poipu or Kapaa; 45+ minutes to Waimea or Hanalei Bay. Restaurants, shopping, golf and tennis are all within walking distance. An elevator just down the street will take you down from Pali Kai – the ocean cliff – to the beach, to enjoy the beautiful, warm Kalapaki Bay. And the Pali Kai overlooking Kalapaki Bay? In our view, it was always the “ULTIMATE” location for a dream house on Kauai. Our duplex villa is located on a private road, within the grounds of the Kauai Marriott Resort and Spa. Golf, tennis, swimming and shopping are just steps away. The varying views are unforgettable. Our rental suite is the 800 square foot (2-3 times the size of a normal hotel room) very private lower floor in a $multimillion custom duplex home. And its furnished to impress with the finest Italian porcelain tiles, and new furnishings in a modern, contemporary, open style.

What makes this Villa unique

Kalapaki Bay is one of the best beaches on Kauai and provides opportunities to snorkel, kayak, swim, surf, stand up paddle, sail, and more. Directly adjacent to the Marriott Beach Resort and Club, you’ll have all amenities and equipment rentals at your disposal, not to mention tropical drinks and the fantastic cuisine available right at your beach chair. Above the beach, we love to simply settle in with our favorite book on our lanai, and get lost listening to the song of the waves just below. THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE TIME STOPS AND THE WORLD CARRIES ON WITHOUT YOU WORRYING. Often we see turtles peacefully feeding, a monk seal just playing around, or some local rays cruising the bay. And once in awhile a pod of dolphins will come in and spend the morning, which is quite the thing to watch from above the bay…

                                                                      We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay at this property. The unit had nearly everything we could have needed, plus some extras. Being able to use the Marriott's beach property and airport shuttle was the icing on the cake!

                                                                      Only drawback was that the elevator from the top down to beach level was out of order (and rumor has it won't be working again until November). That wasn't a problem for us--just meant we could have more desserts!--but might make a difference for others.

                                                                      Wonderful unit. Great hosts.

Every detail about the cliff side villa is what we hoped for; thoughtful details such as luxurious bathroom amenities, beach supplies, a bed that feels like you’re sleeping on clouds, and above all else privacy with the added benefit of utilizing the Marriotts pool and fitness center if desired. Our favorite part of the villa was waking up every morning to the soothing sound of crashing waves and coffee out on the lanai with an unparalleled view. Andrea, we cannot thank you enough for truly making our Kauai experience so unforgettable!

We stayed here the week of November 13-20th, 2017 as part of our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect! We loved to sit out on the deck and enjoy the ocean views as well as all the amenities at the Marriott. One thing we were surprised about was how well equipped the kitchette was, this made it very easy to enjoy making our own breakfasts and saving the hassle of leaving to find a place to eat in the mornings. We also took advantage of the great discount at the golf course. This is a huge incentive to stay at this property if you plan to golf while in Kauai. The owner was very friendly and easy to deal with and refunded our damage deposit very quickly after our stay. We have already recommended this property to friends and family and hope we get to return ourselves for another stay! Thank you Andrea for sharing this spectacular property with us!

                                                                      Aloha, Andrea.

                                                                      Small piece of hidden paradise

                                                                      Steve W.

                                                                      This is paradise nestled in the cliffs of Kalapaki Bay, design, accessibility and feelings are at a high when you stay here. We enjoyed every aspect from resort amenities, to golf to peaceful walks in and around the property. I would forget any negative reviews about the island or area, bugs? yeah sure there is a mosquito or two but nothing that would ruin your vacation. Roosters usually cockle in the morning but the ones on this island are particulary stupid and cockle all day long just to cover their bases, it is most amusing. I will return with my wife for another relaxing and soul searching vacation which you can find here.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      A Hui Hoa. Andrea

                                                                      We've just spent 6 nights in this fabulous villa! It was our first time in Kauai (it won't be our last!) and we were unsure where on the island to stay, this proved to be the perfect location, as it is very central to other parts of the island. There are plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance and having access to the Marriott facilities is great. The villa exceeded our expectations, that VIEW, wow! We enjoyed eating breakfast on the balcony each morning, and a few glasses of wine in the evening before walking to dinner. We loved all the little extras, use of the beach towels, snorkel gear, Nespresso coffee, washer and dryer, all these amenities quickly had us feeling very much at home (we wish!). Highly recommend, we look forward to returning!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      It was an absolute pleasure to meet you both! We could not be happier to know you enjoyed our "slice of paradise" and would love to see you back! E Komo Mai!



                                                                      Great experience here at Kalapaki Bay with the Lincolns!

                                                                      Greg C.Plano TX

                                                                      We stayed here for 10 nights in September/October 2017. Everything on the listing including the pictures is 100% correct. This is an excellent location to base your time on Kauai. The property is nicely designed and above all has a very private feeling. If you value privacy and an intimate setting, this is your destination. I put a lot of time in researching places to stay and this was perfect.

                                                                      Andrea responded quickly during the booking and the experience was beyond our expectations. We celebrated our 15th Anniversary and had an excellent trip.

                                                                      The location is very central to the popular attractions on Kauai. The drive to the North, South, or West is not that far. We do recommend the passes to the Marriott and it's an easy walk and elevator ride to all of the Marriott Resort facilities. The best part is you walk back to your own private setting.

                                                                      I can't think of anything the property lacks. We used several of the beach amenities which saved us money because we did not have to rent anything. There were plenty of outlets for charging. At one time I was charging 2 phones, 2 watches, 1 GoPro, 2 different camera batteries, a tablet, and a laptop. It was convenient to be able to charge everything at once. The bed and the bath room were comfortable.

                                                                      The large lanai is a perfect place to watch the sunset. The lanai furniture was upscale and comfortable. You also have a great view of the bay to people watch in the water or on the beach.

                                                                      We easily recommend this property to anyone and would definitely stay here again.

                                                                      Thanks Andrea!
