Why Julie Hitchcock chose Kauai

THE INCREDIBLE UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS!!!! The place was originally 1950's owned by a hula kumu(teacher) sits on an auspicious area between two rivers and the energy is magnificiant! Able to see the ocean 24/7, a treat! CENTRAL LOCATION to kapaa town ,beach and hwy! PROPERTY AT THE END OF A CUL-DE SAC. Location is convienant for everything! KAPAA IS NOT A RESORTY TOWN, IT IS A LOCAL, FUNKY PLACE WHERE LOCALS AND TOURISTS BLEND!!

What makes this apartment unique

Spectacular views. CLEAN AND PRIVATE! GREAT AMMENITIES ! CLOSE TO WALKING/BIKE TRAIL and KEALIA BEACH(2 min away) ALONG THE COAST IS AMAZING! HAWAIIAN DECOR GIVES WARMTH AND ALOHA and a real feeling of hawaii experience. CLOSE TO RESTAURANTS, SHOPS, EVERYTHING.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent 11 nights in this wonderful rental. Everything advertised in the listing is as stated and even more! I really hesitate to write this review because it will probably be booked next time I want to come to Kauai. We would return time after time to this spot. Usually, we never return to the same place twice, this rental will break that record. The views from the windows are all amazing, ocean, beach, surf, palm trees, jungle, mountains. Every where you look out, it is just gorgeous. Easy to park and come and go from and very near the town of Kapa'a.







The property interior is spotless and we felt like we were in a luxury resort, but with all the convenience of having what we wanted to eat and not paying an arm and a leg for it. All the amenities in the apartment were luxurious, beautiful bedding, comfy bed, fluffy towels, great shower, nice deck, bamboo floors--so beautiful. The owner was super helpful and always available to answer questions by e-mail. A very non-intrusive way to handle such matters--nicely done! Thanks for sharing your garden's bounty, by the way, yum!!







Kapa'a is located in the middle of Kauai and has plenty to offer for restaurants, beaches, etc. The best part is you are midway between the north coast and the south coast. It is easy to get to either end, but of course, does take some time. On Kauai, time seems endless and knowing we had this beautiful home to go back to made it a super trip. So relaxing and we just loved coming back "home". We actually relaxed and look forward to our next trip back to this apartment. We had such a great time, thank you so much!







Sincerely, Susan and Tim, Arroyo, CA

A comfortable little nook

  • 5 of 5

We loved the space and waking up to tree top views. It was perfect location for day trips to the North or South. Highly recommend for couples who want a bit of privacy in a homely environment.

Romantic Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We chose to book with Julie for our Honeymoon 9/6 to 9/14 and we could not have been happier! We were looking for a unique place to call home, away from the hustle and bustle of the resorts. This studio was a perfect location for experiencing all areas of the island! Kapa'a was a great town, with great food and nearby activities. The north and south shore places of interest were close enough to visit for a half or full day. The home was clean, inviting, and stocked with everything you need for a day on the beach. Great shower, towels included, and the perfect size kitchen for a quick breakfast and packing sandwiches for lunch! There was a living area with couch and TV, though we never used it! The lanai was cozy and a wonderful place to start and end our day, with the great view of the ocean and Sleeping Giant. We absolutely look forward to making a return!

Our stay at Julie's studio had everything we needed and a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The studio was clean, cute, nice view, almost always a nice breeze, private. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is because the immediate surroundings had recently been cleared and it was kind of ugly but very easy to look past. I like the location on the east side situated between north & south shore for less drive time. The beaches in Kapaa were really nice. For some reason that was surprising to me, I had only been to the town previously. Kauai is aaaaamaaaazing!! I will return and would definitely rent this place again.

Thank you Julie (who we saw maybe 3 times during our 10 day stay but answered texts and requests immediately). Perfect!

Perfect studio.

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful property was super clean, nicely appointed, and in a quiet location but close to everything. Everything about the stay was fantastic. Only the roosters were noisy neighbors and a hint for future travelers is to run the air conditioner on fan with the windows closed at night and you can sleep through the roosters crowing. Great views of the sleeping giant from the lanai.

Thanks so much for a great stay!

Wonderful place to live for a few weeks

  • 5 of 5

We loved the secluded location, being able to leave the windows open at night in complete privacy. The million dollar views of the lush mountains and blue ocean weren't bad either! Our hostess, Julie, was very welcoming and quickly responded to email requests for info and supplies. She observed my feet after a particularly challenging hike and provided Epsom salts for soaking my feet. Such a loving spirit! The studio has everything that is needed to cook meals ( we fixed breakfast every day) as well as a small Weber grill on the lanai. The paint is fresh, the studio is very clean, there is an abundant supply of towels for both bath and beach, there are two new yoga mats, extra blankets and sheets, cooler, beach chairs and boogie boards...again, everything we needed. We chose to stay in Kapa'a because of the miles long mixed-use paved path along the ocean. We enjoyed walking to it from the studio (about a mile away). Kealea beach is only a few minutes away by car and is wonderful! When you stay at the studio, be sure to park so you can easily back up your car into the road without using a neighbor's driveway. They don't like visitors using their driveway for turning around. I recommend this place. It is only an hours drive to Hanalei and an hour and a half to Kokee State park. It is a perfect base of operations for exploring the Garden Island.
