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.

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!!

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.

cute condo

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from staying at this condo. The condo was everything they said it was and what was shown in the pictures! Good location, easy to access and clean. The beds are what we call doubles so my husband and I used both of them. They supply lots of towels. There are paper towels, kleenex and baggies too! They do need to renovate the kitchen (cupboards need to be fixed) and I understand this is going to be done. Kitchen was adequate for our needs. The bathroom has been redone and has a great big shower stall. The other thing that needs attention is the patio door in the bedroom. The one in the living room slides nice and easy but the one in the bedroom sticks, making it hard to lock. We forgot to mention this to Justine. There are two big ceiling fans which is all we needed as there was always a good breeze to catch with the side windows and patio doors.

Lots of good restaurants close by. Hukilau Lanai is an excellant upscale restaurant in walking distance. We also loved Pho (in safeway shopping centre) and Korean BBQ.

If you are swimming in Poipu beach ( 20 minutes away) stop in at Brennecke"s. Their restaurant is good also their deli. A great cheap local golf course, Kukuiolono, is 40 minutes away and has a great restaurant too.

Lyndgate Beach is only 7 minutes away and is a nice sheltered beach with good snorkeling.

This resort is well maintained and a good place to stay. We enjoyed our stay and would definately stay here again.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen is very well stocked and the unit is clean. Traffic is a bit noisy during the day, but it is quiet for sleeping. Nice pool area and the grounds are well maintained. It is centrally located between the north and south shores. Great view of Sleeping Giant. We did not need to use the air conditioning as we had some cooler nights. Lots of shopping and restaurants close by. The owners were great to work with. Would definitely stay there again--and we are next year!!!!

Great condo for the price and location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a 10 day vacation in Kauai to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We had a fabulous time in Jean's condo. She was great at communicating and I even met her sweet niece Justine, whom takes care of the property on-site, since Jean lives on the mainland. This condo was very cute and comfortable. If you want a home base in a great location and plan to be out and about most of the time, it is perfect. Kapaa is located in the middle (east side)of the island which makes it perfect for day trips to north, south, and west side of the island. (The North Shore is the most beautiful area on Kauai, but very $$.) The kitchen is well equipped for cooking, which we did for breakfast, she even provided zip lock bags and tupperware, which is really convenient to take snacks for the beach. The bathroom is a good size with a great shower (love the showerhead) with complimentary basic toiletries. The lanai has a nice view of mountains and pools. I have to say the condo has excellent ventilation and we enjoyed many cool breezes while relaxing. The pool and hot tub are nice and well maintained as is the BBQ grill. Grounds are lush, green, and beautiful. We did use the AC at night, as we are used to sleeping at a cooler temperature. The beach nearby is nice to watch sunrise or walk on but too rough to swim or play in. Excellent restaurants walking or short drive away. We loved Hukilau Lanai (best calamari ever!) and Lavo Lavo Beach club (nice happy hour). We also frequented Foodland (2 minute drive) and the yummy food trucks like Al Pastor, Chicken in a Barrel, and Nom Kauai (5-7 minute drive) For a very special meal, check out J02. It is a bit of a drive, to get to the nicer, calmer beaches on the island, but overall this was a convenient location on Kauai (airport is 10 min away). Great value for the price!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, Ameeta! We, too, enjoy the convenient location of Kini Place and appreciate the mention of your fave nearby eateries as we’re always looking for ono (delicious) food while on Kaua’i as well. We are very pleased to have been a small part of your 10th anniversary and wish you continued happiness.

Convenient and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great time at our stay here.


There are multiple beach spots within walking distance.

Bars/Dining nearby

Great location with 3 pools if you choose to stay in

3 beds total make for a cozy stay

Bedding was very well protected and sheets clean (Im deathly aftaid of bed bugs)

Fully stocked kitchen!

Very friendly staff


Older carpet throughout (except the kitchen) and onto the balcony which adds a certain older smell.

Swamp cooler works but water that drips gets onto the carpet that is on the balcony.

Again, we had a great stay I would just suggest getting rid of the carpet.

Garbage disposal works but is very loud
