Clean, comfortable studio with good hosts...home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The room warm, welcoming and comfortable. we had a lovely basket of island goodies waiting for us when we got there. Judy had wonderful suggestions for downloading an island beach app that we used daily to map out what beaches we would visit. She also gave us tips for a great snorkel spot. The private porch and quiet neighborhood were relaxing. Quick drive to Koloa and the south beaches. Excellent response for booking with lots of communication. Wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Krisha & Nicole, Thank you for such a heart warming review. You two were the perfect guest. That room was so clean it's like you weren't even here. (Thank You) Reviews like yours are helpful to people that are doing their research for their Island accommodations. We feel our unit is a perfect vantage point to access your adventures yet a peaceful enough distance away to refuel and become recharged. Mahalo Nui Loa Judy & Pat.

Judy went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The apartment is centrally located close to a nice beach. I loved the art placed around the apartment. I would have liked a hot plate, or some other way to cook eggs in the morning. There was beach gear provided, and a lovely apartment.

Owner's Response: Aloha Leah & Mike, It was wonderful to have you as our guests. The unit is in a great location close to nice beaches. All of the art is from local artists here on Kaua'i. ( Judy knows them all) Other than cooking we provide everything to make this the best vacation at a very affordable price... There was beach gear provided, and a lovely apartment. Sorry about cooking. That is one of the senseless rules passed down by the county council on the few of us legally permitted units here on Kaua'i. We can also point you in the direction of local inexpensive places to eat and our supermarkets also offer pre-cooked foods to enjoy without "you" having to do the cooking. N That's Sweet too. Remember your on vacation... (Yes, they serve breakfast lunch and dinner... YES, bacon n eggs, if that is what you require. They offer a variety for lunch and even dinner ...rotisserie chicken anyone ?) You can bring them back to the room and or take them to the beach with you. (Yes, we provide you the cooler) Most of Kaua'i's public parks offer fireplaces and grills in designated picnicking areas. They also include Restrooms, outdoor showers, lifeguards, Parking, Drinking water, Covered Pavilions with picnic tables. You can certainly get your cooking in yourself if you choose. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are pleased that you were comfortable and hoped that you had a wonderful experience. We hope to see you again. Thank you for your kind works we do appreciate them. Live Aloha Many Blessings Judy & Pat

Great location, friendly hosts, highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. It was very close to town maybe 10 mins or so but far enough that it was quiet. Our week here was so relaxing, and comfortable. And with all the special touches Judy left in the room made it feel like a 5 star resort. Delicious banana bread! The kitchen was well stocked, we had everything we needed for a day at the beach, and the parking was free (that's how resorts get you) . Save the cash for something you enjoy and just book this property. You won't be disappointed.

Very nice place on beautiful Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Judy's studio a lot! It is very nicely decorated, well equipped and comfortable. The walk-in-shower is just great! The lanai is a real cozy place to start and end wonderful days on beautiful Kauai. And the studio is located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood what makes you feel more like at home than like a tourist. It was a real pleasure to get to know Judy, to chat with her and learn from her about the island. Her banana bread was the best we found! We already miss the beauty and spirit of Kauai and would love to come back and stay at this lovely place again!

Beautiful, quiet studio with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our Kauai vacation and loved our stay at Judy's studio! It was perfectly located for exploring the south shore. It was quiet, beautifully decorated, and the vaulted ceilings made the studio seem even more spacious. Judy provided great customer service and was very accommodating. My boyfriend injured his foot on our first hike and Judy and her husband were very caring and helpful. I would definitely look to stay here again if/when we return to Kauai!!

Owner's Response: Dear Erin & Ian, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for taking time to write a supportive review. We are pleased that you were comfortable and happy. We hope Ian's foot is all better. Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal. Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars. Maybe even land on Kaua'i. On behalf of my family, ... Thank you for your kind words we do appreciate them. Live Aloha - Many Blessings Judy & Pat

Warm Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Kuaui. We found this unit to be centrally located as we explored the entire island. This rental was above and beyond our expectations. The space was beautifully planned and decorated including a charming lanai. Judy was a wealth of knowledge about everything Kuaui. We would definitely recommend this experience to anyone planning a trip to this piece of paradise.
