About Jean, Bruce, Justine

I was born and raised in Kapa'a but have spent most of my adult life on the Big Island. We currently live on the mainland, visit Kaua'i twice a year, and plan to move back permanently in 5-10 years.

Jean, Bruce, Justine purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jean, Bruce, Justine chose Kapaa

I bought Kini Place to maintain my roots in Kaua'i, and to be able to reside close to my family when on-island.

What makes this condo unique

This second story corner unit offers pleasant cross breezes and a partial ocean view. The Sleeping Giant Mountain can be readily seen from the lanai which runs the length of the living room and bedroom.

The swimming pool (with hot tub) and barbeque areas are located immediately behind the building and can be seen from this unit’s lanai. Shuffleboard is also available one courtyard over.

The building’s pay laundry room is located just downstairs of this unit. It contains two washers and two dryers.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location located in Kapaa about halfway between both the north side and the south and west sides of the island. It is also within walking distance of shopping and many restaurants. The beach is also just a short walk, about a block, from the unit. The unit is very well stocked and overlooks the pool and garden area. We would definitely stay here again. The owners are very easy to work with.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at Jean's place. Jean is very responsive to our questions as well as Justine, the property manager. The house was clean and neat when we arrived, and Justine was willing to expedite the check-in process for us, that's our first WoW moment. A big shoutout to Justine and her staff, Tami who went above and beyond to send the camera to the airport for us

Beautiful, well equiped condo

  • 5 of 5

The four of us - two adults and two children - enjoyed our stay very much. The condo is very clean, nicely furnished and well equiped.

The laundry facilities just downstairs were very handy. We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub just behind the building.

The check-in worked fine.

Too bad there is no dishwasher. The beach is nice for children to play in the sand and for a short stroll, but bathing is not possible. The two beds are - as it is mentionned in the description - not necessarily made for two tall adults together. We helped ourselves with each parent sharing the bed with one child. That worked fine.

The place is easy to reach by car and the parking right next to the building. In the neighbourhood (walking distance) are many nice restaurants, stores and so on.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the very positive review, Daniel! It was helpful to note that the full size beds are a mite small for two tall adults to share, however, I'm thinking that any larger beds would probably cramp the floor space in the bedroom. We are delighted that your family had a pleasant stay at Kini Place and truly look forward to a return visit from you in the future.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo..very 'central' to all of the Island activities. Since we had not really visited Kauai before we didn't know where we would want to spend our time, or where the weather, surf or swell might influence our choices. We were gone early in the day, back in the evenings, a dip in the pool-spa, before early too bed without having to spend a lot of time, driving in any direction!!. The condo has been nicely updated. LOVED the shower. Beds were comfy. The air conditioning even could get 'too cold' for us, so we turned it off and just used fans. The black out shades were a nice touch. The short walk to the beach was great for a stretch before 'off' to go, see, do, all that we could for our two weeks. Housekeeping and Plantation Hale front desk were very helpful and responsive to our few calls,! We liked the 2nd floor location. We did hear a little road noise, but we are from the 'city' it was much less than our 'usual'. and VERY easy to block out, didn't bother us at all. Everything was clean, neat, with all the kitchen stuff we needed- though we could have used a bigger coffee pot!! LOL- we drink a LOT Of coffee. Not a bug in sight our entire time (I have been to other islands, and could not say the same!!!!) and lots of bags, cleaning supplies etc!!!..Prompt refund on the damage deposit too! All in all..wonderful unit and excellent value!!. Mahalo!

Very memorable!

  • 5 of 5

The place was our home for our brief stay in Kauai - kinda miss it too- complete with all the amenities that we needed (equipped kitchen, pool with hot tub and lots of towels provided, laundry room just below the unit, a.c., also has fan). We liked the location - quite close to the airport, grocery stores/drug store and restaurants, including Coconut Marketplace. We also liked the ambience of the place - quiet (so nice to laze in lanai), near the pool with grill next to it, and very accessible to a nearby beach with excellent views. Only downside is the sliding glass door in bedroom to lanai difficult to open but we didn't mind as there was the other from living area which we used. The owners were easy to contact and very nice. Finally, it has an excellent view of the Sleeping Giant and close for hiking it. Hope to return someday.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that your family enjoyed your stay at our little Kini Place, Nancy! And thank you for the heads up regarding the bedroom sliding door, which we will address asap. It warms our hearts when guests feel as comfortable in our place as we do when we are on island. We appreciate the wonderful review you posted and most certainly look forward to having you visit with us again.

First...a big thank you to Justine who was so accommodating and friendly. Secondly...thank you for sharing your lovely Kauai home. Loved the Tommy Bahama bedding and plush towels and great pool towels! I really like the corner upstairs locations. It provides a wonderful natural air conditioning with the trade winds blowing into the kitchen...and a great view of Sleeping Giant.

The kitchen is well stocked....even with sharp knives! and love the step in shower and shower relaxing.

Great memories were created....thank you so much!!

Come back soon! w/heartfelt aloha, Jean & Bruce
