We had a great time. Pat and Judy were super.

  • 5 of 5

The location was great with excellent access to everything. Popui was just minutes away. Boogie boards, snorkels, beach chairs & beach towels were a plus. The lanai was a great spot to sit with morning coffee. Judy is an artist and it was fun to see her talent in the decor. Pat's craftsmanship showed throughout. Wonderful facility which we highly recommend.

Amazing place to stay on south side

  • 5 of 5

This was a room attached to the owner’s home with its own private entrance and lanai area. The room was fantastic for two people; the bed was comfortable, the kitchen area worked well for us (microwave, mini fridge, toaster, blender, utensils, coffee maker, etc), the bathroom was spacious, and the walk-in closet was a great bonus. The neighborhood was quiet and close to many places on the south shore and western parts of the island. Judy was extremely helpful and friendly. All in all, I 100% recommend this place to stay while in Kauai!

A little pearl

  • 5 of 5

This studio is a little pearl. I stayed here as single person for 6 days and I couldnt imagine a better place to explore this beautiful island from the south side. It is close to the beaches in the south but you avoid this mass tourism around Poipu.

The studio is really clean. The room is not really big, but through the high ceiling and kind of walk-in wardrobe you dont have the feeling that it is small. Or just spend your time and relax on this beautiful covered lanai, listen to the sound of wind whispering through the trees, the birds or the rain if its raining.

The studio is decorated with local art, so take your time to explore every corner of this condo. You can also find lots of books with additional infos about the island and if you have even more questions, Judy can help you. The contact to the owners is more than good, I felt very welcome.

The temparture inside the studio and also on the lanai is really pleasant. If it doesnt cool down enough for the night you can use the a/c.

So if you look for a nice, clean, private and detailed studio on the south side of this island, go for this one. You wont be disappointed.

Wonderful stay in a lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 wonderful nights at Judy's and Pat's lovely decorated small apartment. It has everything you will need and is a perfect starting place to explore the whole south of the island. For us it was the perfect finale of our honeymoon.

Mahalo Judy for having us.
