Perfect base for exploring!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my time thoroughly on Kauai and at the Kapa'a studio! Clean and well appointed, I was able to cook most of my meals and had enough space to be comfortable. Kapa'a is a great "midway" location for heading to north or south island depending on the day and weather.

Thanks Janet!

Beautiful Cottage - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I was quite impressed with this nice cottage set among beautiful mountains in Kapaa. The location is great, the beach is a short drive, as is the town, waterfalls and many other must see spots. A spacious cottage with a kitchen, air conditioning, washer/dryer (in unit), full bath and king-sized bed. I highly recommend this place, it felt private, yet located in such a way that I could easily get around.

Great location nice rental

  • 4 of 5

Let me start by saying we had a great relaxing stay. I thought out of courtesy to other vacationers I should give some details. First it is half of a two car unattached garage that has been converted. We didn't mind but some might. Also the hot water heater is an instant heater that does not work on demand as it should. Fortunately I'm handy otherwise this would have been disastrous. You have to start the hot water faucet then turn on the Heater. Otherwise it does not react to demand. Once the burner shuts off you need to start the process over.

The kitchen had a hot plate, toaster oven, blender, rice maker and small grill. This was more than enough for us.

I thoroughly enjoyed this quaint little gem nestled in the quietest part of Kapaa. Air conditioning, wifi, and more than enough clean sheets to last the week. Waking up to the mountains is a luxury and the calm environment is very soothing. Janet was a great hostess and made me feel very welcome.

From the studio, there is a 2 minutes drive and 10 minutes walk to Hoopii falls, very beautiful and it is a very easy hike for any age. Some people jump from the rocks to the water, swimming and have fun.

In Kapaa town is just 2 minutes drive and on Wednesday, have the best farmers market in Kauai, locally known as Sunshine Markets are a must-see experience. Dozens of local farmers sell a variety of unique organic produce and stunning tropical flowers in a festive and colorful outdoor atmosphere.

Kapaa have great restaurants, health food store, fruit stand and at First Saturday of every month Art Walk. The main street is lined with vendors selling Kauai Arts and crafts, with some of Kauai's best musicians and bands playing up and down the street. People dancing to Reggae in one storefront, to Bluegrass in another. Even the shop owners are enjoying themselves. It's great fun for the whole family and a great way to see Kauai life.

You can drive(1mile) from here to the stream on the base of Makaleha mountain the eight hundred feet above sea level, three springs release a steady flow of pure, cold water and some people bottle the water for drink.Also someone wrote about to hike to these falls: This is the first 5 star rating I've given on any hike. I've hiked many trails on Kauai and I will put this one at the top. I've read that this hike is only for advanced hikers and I am not advanced. After doing this one, I can see why. It's only 2 miles if you go to the very end. The hike took us 5 hours and 40 minutes round trip. At the end of the 1 1/2, before your very eyes will be 3 waterfalls. Do not turn around, continue for another 1/2 mile to your right and you will come to another waterfall. Stunning! After 2 miles of hiking, it's very rewarding.
