Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday townhome in Kalaheo - Home in the trees

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

If you are looking for privacy and a sense of seclusion with access to all of Kauai’s beautiful attractions, this comfortable Kalaheo home is for you. This beautiful Hawaiian-style 3-bedroom condo is located on the side of a wooded canyon with fruit trees, tropical hardwoods, and a variety of tropical birds, within steps of the complex swimming pool. It is ideally located halfway between two beautiful beach parks in a friendly rural town, and within walking distance of a spectacular 9-hole golf course. A unique assortment of shops, restaurants, services, and churches are nearby.

As you enter on ground level your eyes are drawn through the living room and beyond the sliding glass doors to a balcony in the tops of the trees. The living room is comfortably furnished with two couches (one queen sofa bed), two side chairs, coffee table, flat screen cable TV, and desk area. The adjoining dining area also looks out sliding doors into the trees with a dining table comfortable for 6, along with two seats at the counter connected to the fully functional kitchen. The open floor plan is conducive to friendly gatherings, where flow and access enhance the cozy aloha atmosphere.

There is one queen bedroom on this entry level (wheel chair accessible), with cable TV and its own full bathroom. The private lanai connected to this bedroom includes a gas grill, large table, and plenty of chairs—an exquisite, peaceful garden setting to relax, enjoy meals, or just lounge and read.

Downstairs features the laundry room with full size machines, laundry sink, and all necessary supplies; one king bedroom with cable TV; one queen bedroom; and a full bathroom. Both bedrooms have sliding glass doors leading to covered balconies surrounded by trees. All balconies are totally private and just perfect for morning coffee or evening cocktails.

Within steps of the unit the swimming pool area is surrounded by a large lawn, great for all kinds of games.

This reasonably priced condo is the ideal solution for couples or families traveling together, who want a comfortable home away from home, in a central location where all of Kauai’s attractions are right down the road…at the end of the rainbow!

Not as good as expected for our 7 week stay.

  • 3 of 5

Unfortunately I depended on existing reviews when choosing this rental. First of all I would like to say the owner could not have done enough for us and did her very best to make our stay more comfortable. She purchased a brand new microwave, smart TV, gave us dishes and cookware as what was there was not usable (microwave was pitted, cookware surfaces worn off, glasses etched from the dishwasher, etc). We found the unit dirty and although the owner brought in a cleaning crew it could have used a deep spring cleaning and an update including painting, a new rug on the stairs and new living room furniture. We had frequent small critters visiting - geckos chirping nightly, usually found on walls, ceilings and on bathroom and kitchen counters. various bugs including a 6 inch black centipede on the bathroom floor, etc. Bedding and towels were put away with cling free sheets so everything we used had to be washed due to the strong overpowering fragrance. All in all our stay was not as enjoyable as we had hoped.

Owner's Response: How sad to come to Kauai for seven weeks and be disappointed in your rental. Although my goal is to exceed my guests’ expectation, I fell short in this situation. Yes, the place could use a coat of paint, and the furniture is dated, but all the flooring, including the small bit of carpet, is only 6 months old—not quite ready for replacing. And if you leave windows and doors open, then walk around in white socks, as these guests did, they will get dirty, no matter how clean the place is. I live next door, so I am available to handle problems and requests when they arise quickly and willingly. All their concerns were handled within 36 hours, including 12 hours of spring-cleaning (while they watched.) They needed three TV’s with USB ports, so I bought a 42” flat screen. They asked for, and received free long distance phone service to Canada, a new microwave, toaster, phone system, beach chairs, umbrella, sheets, glasses, and cookware. From then on, whenever I asked how things were, they responded, “Everything is fine. We are happy.” So I was surprised at this negative review. I also wondered why they stayed for 7 weeks if they were so unhappy. The “critters” are geckos that live in the 18’ vaulted ceilings. Most people find charming, especially since they eat bad bugs. In many cultures they are considered good luck. This is my first complaint about them. As I expressed to the guests, I was grateful that they shared their concerns as it gave me an opportunity to fix things that needed upgrading and replacing. Now it is even better for the next guests. However, if fresh paint and new furniture are important to you, please stay in a 4-star hotel, not a budget priced vacation rental.

Great family unit

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 3 weeks this last January along with my mom. The unit is very spacious which made for easy living arrangements. We found the unit stocked with all the essentials and many extras. Many beach chairs helped us pick the right one. There were , spices, rice, and many other items that made cooking much easier. The gas barbecue on the deck was a treat. The owner was extremely helpful with anything we needed and very friendly.

The only potential drawback is the stairs to the downstairs which is steep and many. If that isn't a problem, you will love the unit and location.

Kauai adventure

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for ten days last January. We were very pleased with the accommodations. The description and photos are accurate. The owner lives next door and was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this property and would stay there again. We went to the beaches (Salt Pond and Poipu) almost every day. The condo comes equipped with beach chairs and mats, which was very convenient.

Fun vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great location within easy drive of many beaches, and easy to get to town(s). Enough space so that vacation with the in-laws for 11 days was still fun. Try running up the hill into kalaheo for a nice short run in the mornings.

Quiet and clean

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here October 22-29 2011. I was amazed at the beauty of the area. The condo was very clean and fully stocked with everything you needed. You do need to rent a car to get places. The owner is very friendly and welcomed us with open arms. I would highly reccommend this place to others wanting to come to Kaua'i

There is alot of constuction in the morning but the views are so pretty you dont mind having to wait.

I found everyone in the area to be very friendly. The best burger place to go to hands down is Bubba's Burgers.

Summer stay July August 2011

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed here for three weeks in late July/early August 2011 while on island for work. The location is wonderful (quiet and cool at night), the layout is very nice with extra privacy for those staying on the lower floor, and there is great privacy from balconies. Would highly recommend it and hope to stay there again next year.
