One block to ocean where the swimming is great.
One block from ocean and ''downtown' Kapa`a, a great location for travel to all parts of the island. walking distance to shops and places to eat. Dog-friendly, private, affordable, comfortable. We have posted virtual tours on youtube for all of our vacation rentals. Search for Ohia Kai Cottage 2012 for the most recent views of the cottage, inside and out. Last but not least, Marianne and Bob are really nice folks who won't hesitate to 'talk story' about things to do on the island. Marianne lived in Germany for many years and spricht gern deutsch! we have Turbo internet (up to 20/2Mbps) with our WiFi.
My friends and I spend 2 nights at the Ohi'a Kai Cottage. The property is in a wonderful, central location and very easy to find for those who are not familiar with the area. Everything that we needed was furnished for us in the home. Restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Highly recommended!
We absolutely loved the location of this cute little rental property. It is half way between the north and south side events. The sleeping accommodations we excellent and the bathroom was spacious. The only disappointment for us was the kitchen since we like to cook our breakfast and prepare our day lunch at the rental site. We missed not have a real stove and oven, but we made it work and the price was right. So if you aren't into cooking one site....this is a good choice. Very quiet neighborhood and within walking distance to downtown Kapaa. We have planned to return to Kapaa next winter!
Lovely landlords who bent over backwards to get our wifi working. Sleeping was great, you could not hear any outdoor noise. Cozy, inexpensive, no stove, but lots of storage for everything they provide for you or your groceries. In the "kitchen" room a table and two chairs, buffet, cutting table and all of your utensils, bowls and more are provided for you and outdoors you have a good bar b q. We had a wonderful time because of the kindness of our landlords who made us feel like family. We would stay there again. Beds were very comfy, too. Thanks for the avocados and bananas, they were wonderful.
This rental home made our time in Kauai relaxed. We had the nearby stores and restaurants within minutes away and the beaches were all so close that walking to them was like 3-5 minutes. The home itself had everything we could have asked for. Bikes, barbecue, dishes, towels and a home full of things for everyday use. Huge restroom with great shower. Ideally located for day trips as in any direction we were there in a hour. Overall we would recommend this home for use by anyone.
This is a great little cottage that fits into a budget vacation. My wife and I spent 10 days there for our honeymoon, and were very satisfied. It's small, but not so small that two people would feel crowded. It's fully furnished, including a well outfitted kitchen, beach stuff, plenty of towels, and the usual hotel bathroom supplies. There are 3 AC units, which can get the place very cool combined with ceiling fans. Free laundry facilities are around the side of the adjacent building. The decor and dishes etc. are pretty eclectic, i.e. don't expect the predictable polish of a hotel room, which has it's charm. The whole place was quite clean, with plenty of signs of use as well. The owners left us flowers and fresh fruit, and came by to welcome us. We ran into Marianne once when it was raining and when she found out we didn't bring an umbrella she just gave us hers, so kind. There was a schedule for the local farmer's market on the fridge, and a trail guide book for the island, and lots of other nice touches like that. They really care about making your stay nice.
The kitchen is spread out (for zoning reasons), but functional. The fridge is in the next room, and the sink is in the bedroom. It has all the appliances and utensils/dishes/silverware you'll need. Pitcher with filter in the fridge. Washing the dishes in the small sink is a little tricky, but there's a big proper sink outside if you care to carry dishes out there. We only ate out 3 times in our 10 days there, and we didn't really miss anything, except maybe an oven for baking. We did eventually run into some stray ants, but that's the nature of living on the ground floor in a tropical region. I wouldn't recommend leaving food out all night.
The main bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed and a dresser. The other bedroom/living room has more of a futon mattress, so more dense. Both are accessible by two doorways that have recessed sliding doors, so you can change the configuration as needed.
Again, very clean with some signs of use. The towels were folded in a fancy manner, nice touch. The shower stall is just big enough for one person, although the bathroom itself is big. It's one of the only non-condo places we considered with an internal bathroom (we think the external bathroom stall thing is weird).
Overall we were super happy with this place, and would definitely stay here again, thanks!
We truly enjoyed our stay! It was the perfect size for two (although could accomodate up to 4 comfortable). 2 bdrs, a kitchenette, washroom, and living room were perfect. We made good use of the barbecue and bicycles too. Great location too. Steps away from the beach, Kapaa town and the supermarket. Hosts/owners, Bob and Marianne were incredibly accomodating and even showed up with fresh grapefruit and starfruit that they had picked that day. Perfect getaway for couples on a budget and for those not looking to get sucked into resort life.:)
This Special Cottage is rated as an ideal location to travel to all parts of Kauai as Kapaa is halfway from the end of the road in both directions making it easy to visit one side or the other in the same day. Our price is already a discount as we offer the same price year around.
