About Richard 'Cas' and Susan Castilyn

My wife and I came to Kauai on our honeymoon almost 33 years ago, we fell in love with Kauai and decided that this is where we wanted to retire, we came back every two years until 10 years ago when we made the move from California to the Big Island of Hawaii where we ran a small business. Five years ago we finally made the move to Kauai and life is good here in paradise.

Richard 'Cas' and Susan Castilyn purchased this studio in 2010

Why Richard 'Cas' and Susan Castilyn chose Princeville

When we decided to move to Kauai we looked at lots of locations South side, East side and the North Shore. We have always loved Kauai's north shore for the views, waterfalls, majestic mountains and beautiful beaches. Living here at the Sandpiper is a dream come true!

What makes this studio unique

As soon as we walked into our condo we fell in love with it, the views, location, and the convenience of amenities was everything we were looking for, beaches close by, pool, BBQ, walking trails, library, grocery store. All within minutes of our front door

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this unit and it was great! Cas met us there as we arrived and told us all we needed to know. He and his wife are super nice and live right next door. Everything was clean and ready to go for us.

The bed was very comfortable. There were 2 or 3 fans that we used at night, even though it wasn't too hot. They have thought of every little detail it seems---from flashlights to umbrellas, some extra food, extra blankets, shampoo, sunscreen, bug spray, laundry detergent, a water cooler, an ice tray in the freezer, beach chairs, lots of beach and bath towels, snorkel gear, all the kitchen amenities you could need (rice cooker, crockpot, pans, tuperware, spices, dishes and silverware, etc.). They even had a couple ponchos, some toothpaste, a blow dryer. They really have thought of everything.

It was nice to have the lanai which was pretty private. We ate out there a few times. It was nice to have a place to put our muddy or wet shoes or wet towels (there is a hose right outside the lanai to wash things off with). We used the pool and hot tub several times and often were the only ones there, sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the evening.

I would definitely stay here again. We explored the whole island so we did a lot of driving. But the north shore is a beautiful place to stay and had our favorite beaches. Parking at the condo wasn't a problem. About half the time, we could find a parking spot just a few steps from the unit. The other times, we parked in the back lot and had to walk about a minute to the unit but there was always plenty of parking in that lot.

My only complaint, and it is minor, is that the wifi was a little slow sometimes. I would totally recommend this place to anyone staying in Kauai. It's not fancy but it is comfortable, has all that you need and is very decently priced.

Thanks again for a great stay!

Perfect studio for our visit

  • 5 of 5

Susan and Richard were great hosts and prepared everything for us in the room prior to our arrival. They provided update emails as our trip got closer. The room was clean, well kept, and full of amenities. The kitchenette and Netflix allowed us to eat in and watch movies after long days shopping or at the beach. It was the perfect balance of privacy and safety, knowing they were next door and available to us, if needed. Highly recommend this VRBO - we hope to be able to visit again!

From our gracious, greeting, from Susan, and Richard, until our final farewell, truly a wonderful experience! The condo is small, but very well appointed! The bed was soo comfortable! I haven't sleep as well for years! Everything we needed was in the condo. Short drive to the market, our favorite diving reefs! We will surely return!

My daughter and her new husband enjoyed the room very much. The bed was comfortable and the room well appointed. Everything you could possibly need was provided. The location is within walking distance to shopping , restaurants and beaches. The hosts Richard and Susan were very gracious and kind. Thank you for sharing your beautiful little slice of paradise.

Great condo for a great deal!

  • 5 of 5

What a great studio in a great location for the North Shore! Richard and Susan have set this studio with everything you need to go out and venture or even to stay in and relax. The bathroom and shower are fantastic with tile work, lots of hot water and pressure. The patio setting is nice and private, the bed is very comfortable with memory foam, and the kitchen is well supplied. The people I encountered at Sandpiper were all so nice and welcoming and I will be staying with Richard and Susan again!
