About the property

1 Bdrm Loft That Sleeps 4!

Gorgeous 1 bedroom loft, offering great views, close to beach and activities. Windows from floor to vaulted ceiling allows you to view the moon rise, and passing shooting stars. Wake up to the gorgeous sunrise, overlooking Kapahi Valley, and Kealia Beach out in the distance. A spiral staircase leads you up to the loft where dreams of waterfalls and crystal clear blue waters can be had after watching the stars align above. The full kitchen with granite counter tops and everything you need, outdoor BBQ, and washer/dryer will make you feel right at home. 2 1/2 miles to the beach, surf, and 3 miles to Old Kapaa Town.

The unit is located behind our home on the same property with common space in between. There is a lanai behind the unit for ultimate privacy - be it a family barbecue, or your morning cup of coffee watching the sunrise peak over the ocean.

If you love the country and privacy, Kealia Hale is for you, complete with down home hospitality given with the spirit of aloha. Our hale is your hale.

Thank you for the lovely loft... It's been a fantastic "Home away from home" for us :) :)

Waking up with the birds and falling asleep with the full moon shining through the windows. Peace + Quiet = MAGIC!

Wonderful, warm, inviting family!

  • 5 of 5

The property was conveniently located on the island. The house was roomy and had beautiful views. We loved the windows! Sean and Marisol were amazing hosts! The kids were just as nice as their parents. Overall, this was a fabulous experience.

Love, love love it!

This is the second time we have stayed at the property and we absolutely love it. Very conveniently located the restaurants, the beaches and an easy drive to Hanalei.

Beautiful space. Best view. Lots of space. Saw the sunrise each morning over the ocean from our bed.

We had an exceptional stay!

Quiet & Convenient home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the loft for 9 days in November, it's located pretty close to the main strip of Kapa'a and very central on the island. Each day we woke up to the beautiful sunrise (if you're a light sleeper or want to sleep in bring an eye mask), then picked a direction and explored a new area of Kauai. Sean was very responsive to any questions we had, provided suggestions of local goodies when we ran into him, and worked on fixing a broken water spout on the fridge when we were out during the day.

The loft had everything we needed, coffee maker & filters, pots, pans, etc... We cooked almost every night and never found ourselves in need of anything. While we explored each day I stopped at fruit stands and farmers markets to pick up the freshest most delicious produce, and it was so great to have a full refrigerator to stash everything.

There are three fans in the loft, of those three we could only used one. One worked, One we couldn't find a switch that would turn it on, and the one above the bed made a repetitive noise that wasn't loud during the day but when trying to fall asleep was hard to tune out, so we bought a small fan at Wal-mart to put by the bed and then returned it before we went to the airport. That being said the one fan and small fan we bought were enough to get the loft comfortable for sleeping!

A tip for the area: the main road in Kapa'a gets pretty trafficy mid morning and mid afternoon. It was fine for us as we pretty much made plans as we went, but if you need to get somewhere at a specific time add in 20 minutes just in case!

Needs a lot of TLC

  • 2 of 5

The location and views were fantastic, unfortunately that's where it ended.

The place was dirty upon arrival. We cleaned for over two hours to make it bearable.

I ran into Marisol and she did apologize and said the people before us checked out late. She said she'd get us a gift certificate for dinner at one of their favourite places. That never happened and it was the last we saw of her.

There is an ant problem, they're everywhere. It is very hot in the bedroom, making it really hard to sleep. It might help a bit if the third fan worked.

The fridge leaks and doesn't keep anything cold.

The dishes/glasses/cups/cutlery/pots were pretty gross, we bought paper plates and plastic cups and cutlery as dishes etc. had dried food on them, obviously hadn't been washed well. Stove and counters greasy and dirty.

The lighting upstairs is non-existent at night as there is only one lamp which you have to unplug if you want to plug an electronic device in.

The wifi definitely not as great as they claimed.

Don't use the coffee machine, don't think it's ever been cleaned.

Floors disgusting, don't think they've been mopped since house built. My son swept and mopped them.

Inside the fridge was so dirty.

We took pictures of everything.

I emailed Marisol 2 days before we left, telling her all that was wrong and asking for our cleaning deposit back as we had to clean it. Never heard from her.

Place needs a lot of TLC.

We have been using homesaway for about 5 years now and this was the first time we came into such a dirty place.

This place needs a deep clean.

We cleaned arriving and departing. So wondering why we paid a cleaning fee of $105. Plus tax.

We'll definitely be back to Kauai but we definitely WOULD'NT stay here again.

Gave it 2 stars for the view and location.

Owner's Response: We were available to this guest and all her complaints as soon as she arrived and did our best. We would NEVER not reply. You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time. ;)

Charming space with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect mid-island spot to make our home base. We were literally only there during the evenings and early mornings because we took advantage of all of the beauty and wonder that is Kauai. The guest home is in a quiet neighborhood and had all of the amenities we needed (love that all of the untakeables from other guests are kept around for others to make use of - reduce, reuse, recycle!).

Sean and Marisol were non-intrusive but very helpful and warm hosts. There are lots of beautiful plants and birds right out the back door.

We would definitely stay here again - Mahalo!
