About Judy Walker


I am a product designer & my business is TOPS Malibu. Add Surprise to Life and its Celebration. I appreciate Kauai so much because it is a place where I can soak up nature's beauty, listen to the songs of birds, relax and lead a peaceful life which encourages creativity. This is a special peaceful property with wonderful trade winds, tropical birds and you can hear the sounds of the waves on many nights. I love every moment on Kauai.

The Best of All Worlds!

  • 5 of 5

During our 8 day Kauai vacation we decided to stay at three different places so we could get a feel for each different area. If we could do it all over again (which we plan to do as soon as possible!) we would have spent our entire trip at this beautiful spot! It's close to everything, it's in a safe and quiet neighborhood, everything in the house is well-decorated and clean and Judy was easy to work with and super helpful!

Quiet Private Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We are an elderly couple that found this bungalow to offer quiet, peace and privacy. It has a separate driveway from a low traffic access road to a unit screened by lush vegetation in a rural neighborhood. Owners kept this very private for us yet were fun to seek out at their end of the property and enjoyed talking with us and providing all kinds of directions. Uncrowded Kalihiwai Beach was a minute drive away and we used it frequently as it was protected from moderate east winds which were common for our stay. Numerous other beaches not far away and we used many of them as well. Other reviews are acurate. For us the quiet and privacy with warm friendly hosts made our stay 5-star. Loved the morning bird calls. We also made great use of the nearly flat walk through the mahogany forest trail - a 2 minute drive to its start.

Lap of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our visit could not have been more blissful if it tried. The house is secluded, spacious, and feels like home. Judy has great taste, and the place is as far away from the Hawaiian "condo experience" as you can get.

We made smoothies daily from native fruit that had fallen to the ground, enjoyed the heck out of that outdoor shower, made up our own frisbee golf course on the 5 acre property, and enjoyed chilling with a ukulele and smoothies under the trees.

We had a few issues with appliances (coffee maker and blender weren't working) but Judy did her best to get those fixed up for us.

Since my mother has mobility problems and couldn't do all of the Kauai activities with us, it meant so much for her to have a wonderful house to stay in.

Would love to stay here again in the future!

Two weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

It has been a week since we arrived in Kauai. After picking up the rental car at the airport and making a stop at Costco (highly recommended), we got to this lovely rustic cabin. We found everything we need - 2 mini-fridges, microwave, coffee maker, blender for smoothy maker (!), toaster-convectional oven, new BBQ and a comfy bed. Speaking of the bed, it is a queen sized bed not king sized as advertised but as I said it is comfortable so no complains. There is also a fantastic outdoor shower - we just love it.

Location is perfect from our point of view. It is so close to various beautiful beaches on both the North shore and the East shore. Also, it is just a 2 min. drive to Kilauea, a small town where you can find an excellent Fish market (their ahi wrap is so good!), organic grocery store, deli, bakery, a few nice boutiques and Lighthouse Bistro (happy hour from 5:30 -6:30 pm, drinks are just $3 followed by live misic starting at 6:30 pm nightly). Princeville and Hanalei are close by as well. Anyway, we love everything about this wonderful property (well, almost everything...mosquitoes are bit of a pain so an insect repellent with Deet is a must to have).

Judy, the owner, was very helpful in answering our questions. Judy - many thanks for making our stay so enjoyable! Wish we could have actually met you face to face.

One more week in Paradise!!!

Kauai's north shore is unique because of the beautiful green 'aina' or land. Kauai is known as the garden island for its lushness. Kauai has many more sandy beaches than the other islands because it is the oldest island. Fantastic swimming! We are a short walk to two of the best beaches of the north shore, Kalihiwai Bay and Secret Beach. Our road is unique because you can walk to the beach and homes are on 5 acre parcels. There are some wonderful hidden trails to the beaches, Ideal surf spots, great swimming! Short drive to Anini where you can swim, snorkel or charter a fishing boat year round inside a protected reef, Zip lining, horseback riding, paddle boarding,yoga classes in Kilauea, Cross Fit gym, mini golf and fruit stand across the highway. Farmers Markets close by. Pick fruit on our property when in season. Yes, this is Paradise.
