The place is very good for relaxing. We enjoyed the garden, the terrace and the natural beauty. 5 minutes drive to the beach, but a centrally location for reconnoiter the island. Jay is very kind and she provides us with fruit from the natural garden. The kitchen is great but there are only 2 old hot plates. The place is ideal for 2 people which like nature.

Quiet & secluded

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at Jai's on our first trip to Hawaii. It was all that we expected. The king size bed was the most comfortable bed we'd ever slept in. We loved having our morning coffee on the deck watching the sun come up & listening to the birds. The kitchen had everything we needed. Jai was most helpful with any questions we had. Friendly, but respected our privacy. Great trip!

Owner's Response: It was great meeting you both and hosting you here in the gardens. I am very happy you enjoyed your stay. I hope to see you back again soon here on our beautiful island.

Peaceful relaxation

  • of 5

A great place to relax. Lots of birds around, the friendly cat that comes for a visit every morning and the great gardens that Jai has. She gave us a great tour of her gardens and the fresh fruit was delicious.

Peaceful garden paradise for "non resort" types

  • 5 of 5

A 5 minute drive inland (and up) from Old Kapa'a, this is a wonderful place for people who want their own wonderful space in a quiet tropical garden setting (just) off the beaten path. Beautiful, well-equipped accommodations. Jai, the owner who lives upstairs, maintains the 5 acre property with gardens, ponds and fruit trees and keeps a fruit stand (that works on an honour system)...so besides the generous offering of fresh fruit (including avocados) that greeted us upon our arrival, there was an abundance of ingrediants always available for daily breakfast smoothies. No, you can't walk to the beach like at any of Kaua'i's resorts, but you can't walk to a place like this from the resorts either! Kaua'i is a small island and this is centrally located on the east side so you're about an hour or a little more, depending on traffic, from either end of the road at Waimea Canyon and Kōke’e State Parks (going south & west)or Kē’ē Beach (north & west). We are a couple so we had more than enough space but I think parents with a couple of kids who don't have a problem with sleeping on a sofa pull-out (or futon?) would make out just fine. We had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to return. Malaho, Jai!

Authentic place, relaxing and inspiring. If anyone wants to live for few days as the locals do, this is the right choice. You are immersed in the island nature, its sounds, colors and atmosphere. Jay, the owner and hostess, was kind and helpful. We will definitely look for this apartment again for the next trip to Kauai.

Aloha!

Wooden Jewel Box - 4 Miles Drive to Kapaa town, and the beach. Up country Living Option

  • 3 of 5

Jai greeted me upon arrival at her home located up country roughly 4 miles above Kapaa town. She was very nice and helped me with information about the apartment situated on the lower level of her home. Jai also gave me good information about some local beaches on the south side of the island near Poipu, which I visited during my stay. She provided me with a beach chair, and offered snorkeling equipment as well. The towels are very nice and the kitchen is adequate for a single or couple. I would not plan on cooking extensive meals however, because there is an older 2 burner hot plate setup in the kitchen, and a very small kitchen sink. The initial greeting fruit basket is a nice touch, and the bananas are excellent.

The aesthetic quality of the apartment was appealing to me, with beautiful shiplap woodworking on the walls, and complemented by floor and ceiling wood. It is a warm and inviting architectural style and very comfortable.

Unfortunately I experienced frequent footstep noise and movement of objects about on the flooring above the rental unit, on 2 nights during my 4 night stay. (1st and last night) The sound transfer from the main living area and decking above the rental unit was an issue for me.

The property is located in a pretty rural setting with a small corridor view of the ocean off in the distance. This is a great get away spot if you want more of a private location. I had decided to stay near Kapaa because of the central island location. I spent two days on the North Shore and 2 days on the South Shore doing hikes and beach activities. The location provided a good starting point to go north or south on the island for daytime activity. My personal preference for evening activity, would have been located in a more central in town coastal location.

I would have rated this rental unit as a 4 Star for character and charm, if not for issues that I have noted here.

Owner's Response: I am glad you liked the Condo, just a couple of things. The kitchen sink while not large is medium sized and deep. It is not difficult to do the dishes in. Also the stainless steel double burner works excellently to cook anything you wish to cook. it is fast, clean and perfectly adequate. I regret that you heard me upstairs at all as I am very aware of my guests and walk softly and go to bed very early every night. I was packing for a rare trip but took my bag down at 8Pm at night and was in bed by nine? I do live upstairs alone but yes sometimes might be heard a little early in the evening. My thoughts are always on my guests and there stay, in fact we talked many times and you always said everything was fine and you were happy with your accommodations.
