About the property



For your at-the-beach vacation, this lovely rental puts you in touch with the ocean, miles of coastline, and romantic star-filled evenings. Nestled on the shore of Kekaha, it offers the sunniest, warmest weather on the island. Magnificent sunsets with evenings so tranquil you can drift off as you watch the moonlight dance like diamonds on the water. This home is designed for gorgeous views, ocean in front and green foothills in back.

A one bedroom, one bath accommodation with full kitchen, dining area, and living room is available for your enjoyment. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the living room has cable TV with several movie channels, daybed, and sofa sleeper.

We hope to make your Hawaiian vacation as pleasant, relaxing, and fun filled as possible. If you need anything, please feel free to ask and we'll do our best to help.

They live on property and are immediately available if any needs arise.

Kevin purchased this apartment in 1985

Why Kevin chose West Side

The late Carl Anderson and Pam courageously built their dream home by hand. Loving the west side for its miles of white sand beaches and uncrowded surf spots. Unbelievable sunsets with great waves, views of whales, boaters, and other sea life from the deck.

What makes this apartment unique

For surfers there's a great surf spot across the street with year round surfing and boogie boarding. No matter what time of year we get swells from both directions.We have no extra charges for the many ammenities we offer. We are twenty minutes from either Poli Hale Beach (one of the greatest) and the Waimea Canyon (sometimes descibed as th Grand Canyon of the Pacific).

great bargain

  • 4 of 5

The owner is great and very helpful. She let us use all the beach and surfing stuff we needed. We came with a lot of muddy clothes from hiking the Napoli coast and using her washer and dryer was really helpful. This side of the Island is warmer and dryer than the north side so the AC in the bedroom was appreciated. If you want to explore the Waimea Cyn. area this place is really close. Its not fancy, but there is plenty of room, its comfortable and the price is great. Would definitely stay here again.

Great Location on the Westside. Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great choice for lodging if you are exploring the west side of the island. Comfortable & clean with amazing views makes this an easy choice for future trips to Kauai. The location makes visiting Koke`e State Park, Polihale State Park, & the Kawai’ele Waterbird Sanctuary an easy drive.

Very kind host

Kevin was extremely nice and helpful, but it wasn't the place for us. We ended up leaving a day early and staying in Lihue.

Warm and inviting. Much like staying at a friend's house.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I only stayed here two nights but wished we'd booked more time! Place was neat and tidy. You have an excellent view of ocean from every room in the apartment except for the bathroom and bedroom.

I must admit, I was a little concerned that we'd be hearing road noise all night long. I was pleased to find that once you close the sliding glass doors in the living room, the noise from the road all but disappears.

I couldn't find anything with the property that would warrant a complaint. Sure, there are a couple cosmetic flaws but nothing that caused us any issues. I noted the surface rust on the outside of the refrigerator that was mentioned in one of the reviews of the property. The rust is purely cosmetic and doesn't hurt anything. Opening the fridge reveals a super clean interior that looks practically new. Rusted metal parts are to be expected when you are less than 50 yards from the ocean as salt water doesn't play well with metal.

One thing to be aware of, the A/C in the bedroom defaults to an energy saver mode every time it is turned off. This mode causes the A/C to cycle on and off. If you want the A/C to run all night to keep you cool while you sleep, you need to switch it to normal mode.

Pam was a wonderful host and great to talk to. As I understand it, Kevin is the one who normally deals with customers. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Kevin while we were there. Pam admitted she was a little out of her element dealing with customers. That said, my wife and I enjoyed our conversations with her and thought she did a fantastic job.

During our trip, we visited all parts of the island and have to say that we will be back to this part of the island the next time we vacation to Hawaii. This part of the island has a more local feel to it and we really enjoyed the small town atmosphere as opposed to the resort areas of the island. We will definitely be staying at Pam and Kevin's the next time we're here. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
