"Kuku's Nest" is a beautiful tropical home not just another rental. This condo is a large, remodeled, one bedroom (best suited for sleeping 2 guests, but can accommodate 1-2 extra persons for short stays using the sleeper sofa located in the living room), ground floor unit, with full kitchen, bamboo floors, stainless appliances, fresh tropical colors, granite counters, new furnishings, two flat screen TVs, quality firm California king bed, lazy boy sleeper sofa, and free wifi. The condo has a beautiful new tile and stone shower. Other recent upgrades include the doors throughout, kitchen cabinetry, and installation of a full size range. This cottage includes an actual dining area, rather than the bar seating common to other units in the complex. With the ceiling fans and coastal breezes, the air conditioning is rarely needed. Enjoy your morning coffee watching the sunrise on the lanai accessed from the living and bedroom. The lanais overlook a coconut grove tropical garden, and one of three property pools.
Plantation Hale consistently brings in great reviews for one of the best places on the island to stay. Property amenities include whirlpool spas, barbecues, clean convenient laundry facilities, and open air lobby with a small library and computer area. Kuku’s Nest is in the “H” building, near a short walking path to tranquil Waipouli Beach. Accessible parking is located right outside your condo cottage and the ground floor location makes this cottage convenient for those with walking or mobility limitations.
Kuku's Nest is nestled in the home of Ancient Hawaiian Royalty. Located in Wailua on Kauai’s Coconut Coast it is a short walk to many area beaches, shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues. The newly completed coastal walking / biking path provides the opportunity to keep your vehicle parked, or within a 5 minute drive you can kayak or stand-up paddle the Wailua River, hike Sleeping Giant, visit several of the island’s best waterfalls, enjoy Smith’s Tropical Paradise luau & gardens, snorkel or swim at Lydgate's tide pools, and much more. Wailua is half way between the jungles of the North Shore and the nearly always sunny Southern Coast making a perfect base for exploring.
WHY CHOOSE THIS PROPERTY:
The Coconut Coast has always been what we consider the best place on the island to serve as a home away from home. It is half way from the North and South shores, and has a good combination of local 'real Hawaiian' life as well as vacation 'destination spots'. Kapaa Town is our favorite area for shopping , restaurants, walking and biking. It has the convenience of having grocery stores, farmer's market, banks and a post office in the immediate area The complex sits along the ocean (Makai) side of the road and is an easy walk to the Coconut Marketplace, restaurants (Hukilau Lanai, Kilauea Fish Market, Lava Lava Beach Club) as well as two grocery stores, two coffee shops (yes, including Starbucks;), and many activities. These units always get great reviews from travelers and we have been very impressed with the management and maintenance staff.
Excerpts from reviews found on the former listing for KuKu's Nest include:
...The condo was central to all the things we wanted to do in Kauai and just made traveling around the island so easy. We had our two boys ages 5 and 3 with us, and we all fit comfortably in the condo....
...The condo was clean and had boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, beach towels and beach chairs....Staff at Plantation Hale are very friendly, always busy with maintenance, cleaning, and keeping the grounds spotless. We usually ate breakfast and BBQ'd supper at the condo and ate lunch at restaurants so this saved us lots of money...
We spent nine nights here and it was just what we needed for our stay in Kauai. There were boogie boards, snorkel gear, towels, a fully equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the nearby hot tub the day we were flying out. It was all very comfortable and convent. Nice central location for getting anywhere on the island. Mahalo
Was really pleased with the condo, especially since I had friends staying in the neighboring unit, who's unit were much more basic than Kuku's Nest. Really enjoyed the access to the pool from the back yard and the other pools weren't far away either. Parking was a breeze and I usually walked to other friends staying in neighboring properties...
My husband and I spent. a week here and we just wish we could have stayed longer. The condo was very well-stocked and had everything we needed from cookware to snorkels. As first timers in Kauai, its central location was especially nice, since it was easy for us to travel all over the island (and we did!)...
just spent 12 nights in this Condo and it was the best of the six different condos I have stayed in on the East-side. It had everything you needed to feel at home and the staff were all friendly and helpful and I would recommend this place to anyone who is reading this. The location is perfect and is walking distance to many places to eat and buy groceries which was great. This will be the first place I will try to book the next time I come back to Kauai.
We had a great month in Kuku's Nest. Condo had everything you need, beach chairs, boogie board and fins, beach towels- place was clean on arrival, check-in was easy. We used the BBQ's lots over the month to save on food costs. There is road noise during the day but it is not that bad...
Kuku's nest was the best place for our family to live on our week's vacation to kauai! Clean, comfy, great location...
