Quiet Retreat

  • 4 of 5

A lovely experience close to Kapaa, yet out in tropical nature.

The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped.

Hope the TV issue is settled.

Jai was very helpful when needed.

Owner's Response: Hi Alison and Alan, Glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm not sure what you mean about the TV issue though as the TV is a new High Definition flat screen one and works on all the regular cable stations?

the best rental on our trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently returned home from a 2 week trip to Hawaii (stayed in Kauai, Big Island, and Maui). We started our trip in Kauai at Jai's property and it was our favorite of the trip. The garden was absolutely beautiful and we really appreciated the fruit gift upon arrival. She was very accommodating, and even the cat made us feel welcome :) It was also a nice surprise to see that Jai kept some of the small things left behind by past guests (bug spray, sunblock, soap, condiments), so we didn't have to run to the store for everything. We would highly recommend this property to anyone, and will certainly stay there again in the future. Thank you!!

Nice & quiet

  • 5 of 5

The place was lovely, lost in the middle of the jungle. Charming, quiet and clean. Jay was a good host, and she gave us some tips about the island. Close enough to Kapaa, cute little city with good restaurants and shops.

Owner's Response: Hi Marie, so happy you guys enjoyed your stay. Yes, I think the convenience of Kapaa town close to my property is a real plus. Lots of great places to eat and shop. Ah and great beaches and bike paths too. Mahalo and I look forward to you coming back again soon.

Perfect Suite

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at Jai's suite. The big deck was quiet, peaceful, and loverlooked lush gardens. The suite itself had everything I needed. The kitchen was very well equipped, there were lots of condiments for me to use to cook, and the bathroom also had a lot of toiletries for guests who needed them. I really enjoyed meeting and chatting with Jai. She was very helpful and lovely.

Owner's Response: Aloha Kim, thanks for the great review, it was a delight to meet you and spend a little time with a fellow Canadian. Although I am an American citizen now as well now. I hope we get to meet again soon, if not here in the gardens then in Vancouver. I am always pleased when guests feel they have everything they need in the unit for a comfortable stay. That is my first mission! Mahalo and A Hui Ho.

A Great Stay at a Plush Island Setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks at the cottages of Honua Lani, one week at the secluded standalone lower garden and the other two weeks at the upper building. Both were richly rewarding. They both had outside decks to catch a view of the blue Pacific and especially the plush vegetation surrounding the entire compound; they face East for the warm sunshine with a cup of Kauai coffee. The apartments were stacked to the gills with anything and everything you need on your Kauai vacation; full kitchen, washing machines, beach chairs, beach umbrella, the list goes on. Kauai is loaded with beaches around the entire circumference, but Kealia Beach is a mere 3 miles away. A walk to the bottom of the ravine to Jai's garden is a must, you feel you're in a different world, very calming. Jai is very accommodating, any questions, just text her and she responds immediately. Would recommend highly, but book early, it's very popular and fills up fast. Aloha.

Owner's Response: It pleases me that you enjoyed your stay in both my properties and especially that you took advantage of our private gardens. I believe they are a hidden gem for anyone who goes down the hill to enjoy their beauty and solitude. (Except for the birds that is). You are welcome back to our peaceful retreat anytime. Hope to see you agin soon.

Neighborhood vacation

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved our stay at Jai's. It was nice to retreat to a peaceful, rural, neighborhood setting after touring many parts of the island all day. Jai supplied about everything we needed to settle in and relax and recharge for the next days activities. Mahalo from Minnesota.
