About Hula Now

I have been coming to Kauai since 1981, and it has become my favorite place on this planet. Come enjoy a piece of paradise with us!


Hula Now purchased this condo in 2013

Why Hula Now chose Kapaa

This truly is the best kept secret on island. It is tranquil, lush, private and sits right on the beach with the most amazing unobstructed ocean views ever. You will enjoy having a full kitchen to fix all your favorites while enjoying the sounds of the waves and keep an eye out for the turtles. Truly a piece of paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely stay at your unit in Kapaa Sands March 14-24th. We were very impressed with the lush greenness of Kauai. Kapaa Sands was an ideal location so that we could easily explore the north, south and western parts of the island. We were so glad to stay in this small quiet location rather than the huge developments we saw in Princeville & Poipu!

We could easily walk to the local stores and to the beach/bike trail that took us along the coast up to to Kealia. Everything we needed was in the unit and the kitchen was well appointed for cooking & enjoying our meals on the deck overlooking the ocean. (one teeny thing we couldn't find was the lid to the blender for our iced coffees but we

made do! Perhaps the lid is still hiding behind something else on a top shelf ;-)

There was also a nice selection of books and movies to enjoy in our down time when we weren't hiking or enjoying the lovely beaches of Kauai.

Many thanks

Tranquil condo with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8 nights at this condo and it exceeded our expectations. This was our first trip to Kauai and we will definitely be coming back again. We loved the central location on the island- it was close to everything. The grounds of this condo are beautiful and lush and the views are amazing. We found the condo to be very quiet- the sound of the crashing waves just below drowned out any other noises.

The interior of the condo was very tranquil and inviting. We loved coming back to it after an awesome day exploring the island. We found that the condo had everything we needed- towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, etc. The kitchen was nicely stocked with all the equipment you would need. We did not use the pool on the grounds at all, but it looked nice.

The view is amazing. Comparable resort rooms with this type of view will run you 400+ a night. This condo is an amazing deal. Overall, if you are looking for a relaxing and romantic place to stay- this is the condo for you. We loved it here and didn't want to leave!

First trip to the Islands....

  • 5 of 5

KS 9 was our choice after hours of searching and planning our first trip to Hawaii, having chosen Kauai as the go to Isle for us...WOW . The room and view are more fabulous than the pictures online, perfect spot for two ! Lots to do and see great food right across the street, literally steps away... ( awesome fish tacos ). Located east-side for access to all the island offers luau ,hiking, helicopter , Napali sail, snorkeling at Tunnels... a short drive north or south... close to airport , shopping, a perfect jumping off point.

The Kapaa grounds our breathe taking , tropical plants everywhere, clean, quiet and very private ! Nice secluded pool and BBQ area never crowded like large resorts...Perfect get away ! Dawn has the room well decorated for that island feel and is totally updated ,incredible view from lanai ! We were there just as last hurricanes passed by, lots of surfers right off shore, turtles is surf below room, took pictures of fish in pool also !

Words can't describe the experience you will have to do that for yourself ...Enjoy KS9

Owner's Response: Mahalo for staying with us and writing this review. It is truly one of the best kept secrets on Kauai and I visit the property often to keep it updated to make your experience the best. It is hard to find a spot that is so secluded on the beach, but yet offers all the conveniences that the island has to offer so close by. Be sure to inquire about our customer loyalty program for return guests. See you soon!! Mahalo, Dawn

What a great value!

  • 5 of 5

This room was perfect for my husband and myself for 6 nights. The ocean breezes keep it very comfortable and you will never miss not having air conditioning. We slept with the sliding glass doors open every night and slept very soundly to the sound of the ocean waves which are right outside of your door! The price on this little gem is quite a value as well.

The only negative note I would make is that the swimming pool was closed for a homeowners association meeting for an entire day, and the closed sign was left up a day or two after that as well. There are plenty of beaches nearby though so it wasn't a terrible loss.

Owner's Response: Aloha!! We are thrilled you enjoyed this amazing unit that sits on a very special beach. We recently renovated it with serene SPA relaxing decor and colors. The Association had their first meeting on property, and we will surely remind them about the sign - the resort believes that all guests come first! We look forward to you coming back again soon. Mahalo!

Perfect in every way GO!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from this marvelous condo and must say it is the nicest place we have stayed in the Islands.

Lulled to sleep by waves every night. Dawn has created heaven in this condo. It was nicer than the photos and so centrally located to everything. BBQ by pool was great way to cook meals. Tidal pools were brimming with life and ocean toys/chairs on lanai were so fun to play with. Everything was perfect.

Make sure you visit farmers market and get shave ice over mac nut ice cream from Hee fat general store in Kapa'a. Visit Lydgate park for beach time-sheltered area for babies and sandy surf for body boards.

Ke'e beach is a tropical paradise at the end of the road where you can view Napali coast.

Be prepared to share beaches with local wild chickens

We will positively be back GO just Go

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had the most amazing time in Kauai. The condo was absolutely perfect. The locale, beach, view, attention to detail were top notch. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else when I visit again. This place is a hidden gem. We went all over the island and at the end of the day, sitting on the balcony overlooking our little piece of heaven was our favorite part. We saw whales, dolphins, turtles, collected amazing little shells, snorkeled, boogie boarded all right in front of the condo! I would rate this place a perfect 10!

We look forward to your next visit. Mahalo for staying with us. Wishing you a warm aloha.

Perfect beachfront condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. This studio was perfect in every way. We watched the sunrise and surfers from our deck because the ocean is actually just a few steps away. We discovered a delightful sheltered ocean "pool" for swimming just blocks away at Lydgate Park, and an amazing walking/jogging/biking path just north along the ocean. We saw whales spouting on our jog on this path the last morning we were there. We also explored both the Na Poli coast and Waimea canyon - Kapa'a is the perfect location if you want an easy drive anywhere on the island. The owner has a small cooler (with ice packs in the freezer), beach chairs, boogie boards and beach mats and towels so we were well-equipped when we went off on our adventures each day. The unit is beautifully decorated and always cool with the breeze from the ocean, and the location of the unit on the property could not be better. After seeing the huge condominium developments at Princeville - none of which have the ocean access we did - we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. We really didn't want to leave!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for staying with us. We are thrilled the condo was perfect for you and your stay. It is amazing to sit on top of the water and the views from this unit are unstoppable. The jogging path will soon be completed to extend along the beach. Being on the East Side makes it easy to get around on island. We look forward to you coming back to stay with us!! We appreciate your feedback.
