We are a friendly retired couple who do not use this entire sizable estate. Our goal is to stay out of your way but to make this a 5 star experience. We are here if you need us but also very aware of your need for privacy and a place of peaceful rest.
Suzanne Fiorito purchased this studio in 2007
We enjoy visitors and have beach toys, kayak to share. We also offer extreme privacy. Our guests have included honeymooners, babymooners, celebrants of anniversaries, and birthdays. We have had guests from all over the world.
This is not cookie cutter condo living, but rather an experience of country living on a private & quiet estate. There are many activities within a short drive. Whale watching, beaches, hiking, biking and all the beauty that only the North Shore has to offer.
Thank you so much for opening your Hale to us. We cannot imagine a better way to spend our honeymoon on the Island. Your accommodations were just perfect for us, far removed enough to enjoy the quiet and nature but close enough to go into the different towns and beaches. We are already planning our next trip back. Maybe our paths will cross one day in sailboats on Lake Michigan! Mahalo!
My wife and I were thrilled by the amazingly aesthetically pleasing grounds for the cottage. Suzie and Stan are gracious accommodating hosts who made us feel welcome.
The location of the property is perfect for a North Shore kauai lover with everything being less than 30 minutes away plus it is an easy drive to South and West parts of island. There are some terrific beaches nearby including a short drive to Larsen's beach which is perfect for sunbathing and a short dip to cool off.
Thanks Suzy and Stan for the opportunity to stay at the lovely cottage. It was so comfortable with everything we needed and perfect for two. The photos don't do the mountain scenery justice. It is a great location being close enough to everything on the island but very secluded at the same time. We were very fortunate with the weather, lots of wind but only rained a couple of nights. If you are willing to look, there are some beautiful beaches near by. Thanks for the use of the two person Kayak, we had a great day paddling two rivers in the area. You are both such gracious hosts and we loved getting to know you. I hope we can visit again soon. We loved playing with the dogs.
Simply amazing! Our stay in Kauai was the highlight of our relationship! The peaceful setting and warm hospitality was overwhelming. Suzy and Stan were extremely helpful in guiding our journey to the most breathtaking scenery and eating establishments. Their hale provided us with great accommodations and the location was very centralized to the North and South Shores of the island. Would definitely visit again!
We had a wonderful stay at hale Makai/Mauka. The location is quiet and idyllic with views of ranch land and mountains. Our hosts, Suzy and Stan recommended the Tavern for dinner and it was outstanding. Other favorites were Bar Acuda, Kintaro (both for sushi and tappan yaki), Lighthouse Bistro, Post Cards, Kilauea Fish Market (do takeout) and Verde. Beach House Restaurant has a romantic setting but is pricey.
Mahalo Suzy and Stan
The owners, Suzy & Stan live onsite and couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating, while at the same time being very low key. The cottage is relaxing, well maintained and just perfect for two. The pictures in the listing are current. Constant breezes keep the cottage comfortable. An onsite gas grill with outdoor table makes casual dining after a long day on the trail a fine alternative to eating out. A kitchenette type area (with small fridge, coffee maker, microwave, toaster over) made it easy to enjoy lazy mornings at the cottage. We used the cottage as home base to scour the highways and bi-ways of Kauai looking for and taking advantage of the hiking and kayaking opportunities. An onsite washer and dryer meant there was no need to overpack. Nothing, even hiking in Waimea Canyon, was more than an hour by car. We are not beach people, but there are several glorious beaches within 10 minutes of the property. Things close early on Kauai, but Suzy and Stan were able to offer some terrific bar / restaurant suggestions for those nights that you want to go out. Bar Acuda in Hanalei was fabulous, but make reservations. Although we bought our own Kauai guide with us, Stan and Suzy had a whole library of Kauai guides in the cottage, which we referred to daily to plan our next days outings. Last but not least we loved the opportunity to interact with pets Chamois, Tiki and Silky. We wouldn't hesitate to book this cottage again. It exceeded our expectations. Thank you Suzy and Stan.
Our stay was excellent. Stan and Suzy are such gracious hosts and they made us feel right at home. The location was perfect for us, we really liked being centrally located on the island. Getting to Hanalei and Kapaa were a breeze. What we really enjoyed was having use of the tandem kayak for the week. We really could not have pictured a better place to stay for our honeymoon.
We are in an area of private estates that used to be all agricultural many years ago. For this reason, it is extremely quiet, no traffic noise and you can hardly see another home from our property, roof top here and there in the distance. It is extremely private and pretty. Beaches, boat tours, zip lining, riding, snorkeling and hiking are all near by. We also are located in a perfect place to explore the entire Island. Resturants galore are only 10-30 minutes away. A new Starbucks is being built only 10 minutes away and the Kilauea bakery is close for morning yummies, speciality coffees and Pizza.
