Excellent Place for a stay on Kaua'i

  • 5 of 5

Kaua'i was our last stop on our vacation and the cozy little studio was just the right choice.

After a day full of activities, we were always happy to come back to enjoy the beautiful private garden and cook a meal in the sweet garden kitchen.

The location is perfect, in a quiet neighborhood, only 10 min away from beautiful Poipu beach and 30 mins from Lihue Airport.

The interior is done really affectionate, with fresh-cut flowers.

I would definitely recommend to others, not to book some random hotel but stay here.

Thanks Julie and Darryl

Owner's Response: Aloha Christoph & Lisa, Thank you our friends from Germany for your delightful review. We appreciate your warm comments. Recently we are seeing an increase of visitors from Germany and enjoy the pleasant exchange of cultures when we get a chance to chat a little. So happy that when you came to say Goodbye on your check out day that we were able to assist you with a late check out and you could still come back in the afternoon and get ready for your evening flight. Hope your flight home went well. Auf Wiedersehen, Darryl & Julie

Great Experioence

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but good things to say about Julie and Daryl and their property. They made us feel right at home when we arrived. They had a gift basket with local products waiting for us, as well as items in the refrigerator. Everything we needed for the beach was provided, including towels, a beach umbrella, snorkeling fins, towels, a cooler, etc. Basically, they saw to it that we were provided for, so that we could just relax and enjoy this vacation of a lifetime. There was even a fresh-cut flower next to the soap in the shower. It's little personal touches like this that put them on a level of their own. So glad we went with Julie and Daryl and not some hotel. Very affordable and beautiful. The perfect little getaway.

Great stay with Aloha

  • 5 of 5

The studio was perfect for our week stay in Kauai. We were welcomed by both owners, Julie and Darryl, with warmth and kindness. The unit is behind the main house and both owners are on site but we always had privacy. It is located in a quiet residential area; only 15 minutes drive to Poipu beach. The studio and linen were very clean. We found everything we needed for a comfortable stay in the studio. I would highly recommend this place. When we return to Kauai we hope to stay again!

Great Studio

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this studio apartment for 2 weeks. Julie and Darryl met us when we got there and showed us around. The studio was very clean (and we are picky) and decorated nicely. The outdoor space was beautifully landscaped. It was well stocked from kitchen

item to beach gear. When we make the trip back to

Kauai we hope to stay again. Thanks Julie and Darryl for fabulous stay in Hawaii !

Perfect Studio

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to the beautiful island of Kauai, our studio suite had everything we could ask for. Julie and Darryl have taken care of everything, all you have to do is enjoy the island. We appreciated all the accessories for making our trips to the beach perfect. The kitchen was well stocked if you choose to prepare meals in the suite. The private deck in the morning was a great place to enjoy your coffee before you begin your day. We would definitely choose to stay at the Kauai Courtyard again.

Excellent value

  • 5 of 5

Julie and Darryl are gracious hosts and have made this small space into a lovely get away for two. The quiet neighborhood, charming "private" garden, island decor and delicious basket of goodies all added to our positive experience.
