Quite, peaceful, bed was super comfortable. The room itself is large. Better then any resort room I've ever stayed in. Loved coffee on the lanai in the morning listening to the birds. #bestofkauai.

Judy and Pat are wonderful.

Peaceful, quiet and private.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on Kauai and the accommodations we received here. The apartment is perfect for a couple. This is a very pretty place , inside and outside. My husband and I enjoyed spending time out on the lanai just enjoying the quiet. We also enjoyed the bananas. Thank you for that Judy.

Came home very rejuvenated.

Loved this charming place in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and couldn't have asked for a better spot! The place was spotless, open, private entrance and the outside lanai was so nice to come home to each day. All the little details were take care of throughout the place. Judy offered great dining and hiking suggestions for us. Thank you for making our first week on Kauai so memorable!

Owner's Response: Aloha Lynn & Dale, We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here. It was our pleasure to have you. Many of our guests have been pleasantly surprised by the privacy this unit provides. Many enjoy having their morning coffee and meals outdoors on the covered lanai as they take in the the fresh air and sounds of Kaua'i. Our goal has been to provide an affordable “alternative accommodation” that would give our visitors a taste of island living and also be a comfortable place to come home to after a long day of exploration. Mahalo for the generous review ! Come Back and see us. Live Aloha Many Blessings Judy & Pat
