This guest suite is exactly like the one next door that the VRBO Bear visited recently. He agreed to write the following review for us:

'While I didn't stay in this suite, my friends and I stayed in the home next door and visited Gary and Andrea, the owners, several times during our stay. This is a brand-new beautiful property with identical views and access to the Marriott Beach Club just down the street. The entire front of this suite opens to the bay allowing lazy mornings drinking coffee and watching the early beachcombers and surfers, as well as spectacular evening sunsets. The private entrance, washer/dryer and refreshments wet-bar make this luxury suite an excellent place to stay either on your own or with friends in the property next door. My next trip to Kauai will be to this suite, so expect to see my picture here in the future!'

This property also has another contemporary luxurious townhome on three levels next door that is available for larger groups. Please contact us for additional information.

One of the owners is a Hawaii Licensed Real Estate Broker.

About Andrea Lincoln

I love warm weather, the ocean, and palm trees - who doesn’t, right?

My husband and I were married on Kauai, honeymooned here, and fell in love with it. A few years later we decided to move here to live in paradise in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

When we first saw this property we immediately noticed the opportunity to build something spectacular on this bluff overlooking Kalapaki Bay. As for me, I’m an architectural designer, so I added my dreams, designs and visions to the planning and eventually building of a duplex villa, one unit for us and one for a very good friend of ours.

And now I’m directly involved in the marketing and management of our little slice of paradise.

Andrea Lincoln purchased this villa in 2008

Why Andrea Lincoln chose Hawaii

This location is the best-known secret on the island. Our Kauai vacation rental suite is just five minutes (2 miles) from the Lihue Airport, and located at the heart of the island — 20+ minutes to Poipu or Kapaa; 45+ minutes to Waimea or Hanalei Bay.

Restaurants, shopping, golf and tennis are all within walking distance. An elevator just down the street will take you down from Pali Kai – the ocean cliff – to the beach, to enjoy the beautiful, warm Kalapaki Bay.

And the Pali Kai overlooking Kalapaki Bay? In our view, it was always the “ULTIMATE” location for a dream house on Kauai.

Our duplex villa is located on a private road, within the grounds of the Kauai Marriott Resort and Spa. Golf, tennis, swimming and shopping are just steps away. The varying views are unforgettable.

Our rental suite is the 800 square foot (2-3 times the size of a normal hotel room) very private lower floor in a $multimillion custom duplex home. And its furnished to impress with the finest Italian porcelain tiles, and new furnishings in a modern, contemporary, open style.

What makes this villa unique

Kalapaki Bay is one of the best beaches on Kauai and provides opportunities to snorkel, kayak, swim, surf, stand up paddle, sail, and more. Directly adjacent to the Marriott Beach Resort and Club, you’ll have all amenities and equipment rentals at your disposal, not to mention tropical drinks and the fantastic cuisine available right at your beach chair.

Above the beach, we love to simply settle in with our favorite book on our lanai, and get lost listening to the song of the waves just below. THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE TIME STOPS AND THE WORLD CARRIES ON WITHOUT YOU WORRYING.

Often we see turtles peacefully feeding, a monk seal just playing around, or some local rays cruising the bay. And once in awhile a pod of dolphins will come in and spend the morning, which is quite the thing to watch from above the bay…

Guestbook comments from the owner

This amazingly affordable oceanfront chalet was so luxurious and relaxing and centrally located on the island of Kauai to make your adventures a short ride north or south. Everything about the suite was perfect, from the panoramic views, to the birds who visit throughout the day, to the luxurious ammenities. If you plan to stay on Kauai, stay here and you won't be disappointed!

I would give 10 stars if I can! The view is fantastic and interior if the condo is modern.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in the condo. It was our first time visiting Kauai and we loved the ocean view as well as Merriot pool area. It was only 5 minute walk from the condo and has elevator directly connect to thw beach and Merriot resort pool. loved terrace area with great furniture. There were everything we need include beach chairs, laundry, dishes, and even sun block lotion as well as refrigerator. The owner Andrea was really helpful. We had a qustetion about using safe box and sje actually came down to teach us. (Thanks Andrea!) We will definitely come back next time and I noticed that she also has a town house right next to the building and it would be great for our family union. Again, thanks a lot, MAHALO!

simple, lovely, with everything you need

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here on a recent getaway. The space was bigger than it seemed in the photos. It was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. The walk to the Marriott, beach and restaurants was easy and quick. I would highly recommend the suite to anyone looking for a quiet, private space that hotels cannot provide.

Aloha in Kaua'i

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautiful properties we have ever rented. Plenty of room, incredible views, and the owner has thought of everything you could possibly need during your stay.

We would highly recommend this property if you plan to stay in Kaua'i because it is centrally located as well. We travelled all over the island and we're always delighted to return to this beautiful property! You will NOT be disappointed!!!

My husband and I spent 9 wonderful days in this beautiful condo. Andrea was responsive and wonderful to work with from start to finish. The property is a beautifully decorated airy contemporary and comfortable condo offering spectacular views of Kalapaki Bay and Beach. Everything we could have wanted in a rental was included; beach chairs, coolers, laundry and kitchen essentials etc. We loved watching the daily sunrises and sunsets from the private lanai. The open air design and floor to ceiling glass sliders offer spectacular views. We enjoyed having access to the Marriott pool and near by restaurants. The cliff where the condo is located is quiet and private with near by parking if you have a rental car, and is easily accessible to stores and main attractions and towns on the island. We have rented a number of properties and this condo is our #1 rental to date in terms of meeting and exceeding our expectations. Thank you Andrea for a wonderful week+ in beautiful Kauai. 🌴

Every Detail was Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! Perfect amenities! Perfect view!

We spent the final 4 nights of our honeymoon in the villa and loved every second of it. This is nicer than any hotel room at any resort. The room itself is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need, including a laundry room, beach supplies, sunblock, bug spray, etc. Beach and surfing is a 5 minute walk right down the hill, and several restaurants are just a short walk away as well. Centrally located to both sides of the island, and conveniently close to the airport. The owners were fantastic. Had an issue with the TV and they replaced it immediately. We'll be back for sure!

AMAZING!!! The most beautiful place we've ever stayed in!! (And that's saying a LOT!)

  • 5 of 5

I knew from the photos and description that this place would be really nice, but we couldn't believe how much more spectacular it was seeing it in person! I'm not sure if I showed the listing to my husband before we arrived or not ... He was completely blown away by it when we got there! We took so many pictures of it to share with our friends (and make them jealous!). ;) Naturally, the location is awesome! We'd stayed in another property on the cliff, but it was nothing like this one. From the floors and the doors and the lighting to the furniture, linens and dishes ... everything about this beautiful place is top-notch. Talk about feeling luxurious and pampered! They even include robes and fluffy white towels to make you feel like you're in a 5-star hotel ... only MUCH better than a hotel! The chaise lounges on the lanai were fabulous! We really never wanted to leave that spot! We'd have our morning coffee out there and return as soon as we got back from the beach. Most nights we dozed off on the lanai and had to drag ourselves to the incredibly comfy bed! We'd spent 10 days on Maui prior to coming here, and though we stayed in what's probably our favorite place on earth, it was wonderful to have such a comfortable bed where I didn't wake up sore and ready to get up. I'm spoiled from my own bed, I guess, and have a difficult time adjusting when we're out of town. This bed, however, was pure luxury. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to meet Andrea when we arrived and had another chance to speak with her later as well. She was so nice and told us to be sure and let her know if we needed anything. Everything we could ever need was already there, though! I could go on and on and on ............... Just trust me when I say you will NOT be disappointed if you stay here. And we most certainly will be back!! Thanks so much for everything!!
