About Danise Rapetti

Jeff is a general contractor and chain saw artist, and Danise teaches registered nursing at the local Community College. We live in the mountains of central California, and have lots of snow in the winter! Kauai gives us a chance to warm up! We have 5 kids, two daughter in laws, and three adorable grandsons! Five years ago, we would never have thought it possible that we would have a condo in kauai, but God is good!

Our picture here is from our recent trip to Kenya (summer 2014) where we spent a month helping at Maisha Mapya Preschool, check it out on Facebook. It is a wonderful preschool which gives education to children who live in the Gioto dump in Nakuru, Kenya.

Danise Rapetti purchased this condo in 2012

Why Danise Rapetti chose Kauai

We LOVE Kauai, since our first visit 8 years ago we have wanted to own property here! Finally this year our dream has come true! We had a lot of fun remodeling this summer, and hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we have!

What makes this condo unique

We love the Coconut Coast and Kapaa in general, because of it's central location on Kauai. It is so easy to get where you want to go, and Kapaa has so much to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing 3 weeks! Your place was great. The kitchen had everything we needed. The BBQ was great. The bed was super comfy I didn't even miss mine! I could have stayed longer. We had to much fun exploring the island. We swam with turtles, zip lined, and discovered countless beaches. We plan on coming back each year and would love to stay with you again! Mahalo

Well furnished one bedroom near shopping.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable condo near pools and hot tub. No ocean view as big resort will be built on ocean front. Good location on side road near Center of the one highway in Kauai.

Cute place

The unit was just as cute as the pictures. Super communications from the owners. A nice location with a some places close enough to walk and some a short drive away.

Best western feel with layback vibe

  • 3 of 5

This place was right next to the main road but really not too bothersome unless their were sirens. Very convenient location so much in walking distance, longs drug store, Safeway, Starbucks, post office, places to eat and shop. loved waking up and walking to the beach to watch the sunrise. However the cleaning service they use could be a little better. I washed all utensils and pans before use. I also didn't like how the bedroom stayed warm because the A.C. was in the living room. Humidity stays in the condo even with the A.C. on so don't leave anything out that would be affected by the moisture in the air. Also due to the humidity you may want to buy or bring your own towels because the towels provided smelled moldy and foul and that includes the washcloths. Very friendly and helpful staff available at front desk. The bed was semi comfortable, kinda lumpy. Overall it was a decent stay I did get some much needed rest and relaxed mostly on the beaches.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jennifer, We are so glad that you got some much needed rest! We are sorry that you didn't feel like the condo was as clean as you would have liked it! We usually get glowing reports about the housekeeping.... We will forward this to her, so she can check with her staff! The humidity on the island is sometimes very high, it takes some getting used to for some people. In our checkin email, we said to let us know if you needed anything, we could have sent housekeeping over to check on your concerns, or bring you towels that were right out of the dryer! Thats why we send that email! We want you to have everything you need and to have a great vacation! As for the bed... we are sorry you found it lumpy.... we love that bed, and find it very comfortable, tastes are certainly different in so many ways! Next time we are there, we will pay close attention to it! Thanks again for your stay! E Komo Mai, Jeff and Danise

Clean, close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very clean, it has everything we needed and it is very well situated in the island to go everywhere! The owners are available anything if you have a problem, they answer quickly and try there best to solve it! However, on the pictures, you see an AC in the bedroom and in the living room, but there is actually only one in the living room, so it gets a little hot in the bedroom. Overall, we would really recommended this condo if you are planning on visiting the whole island, we had a really nice stay here! Thank you for everything !

Owner's Response: Aloha Stefanie! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the convenience of the condo and it's location. We really do try to accommodate needs during your stay! We again apologize that we didn't switch out the pictures of the air conditioner being in the bedroom! We had JUST taken it out the week before! As we said on the phone, it was the THIRD time we had replaced the floor in there due to guests running the air conditioner on dehumidify, despite the directions on the unit saying not to! We hoped the fan our housekeeper brought would be of help! Come back any time and stay! E Komo Mai! Jeff and Danise

Nearest Airport
6 Miles
Lihue, Kauai
Car: recommended

Centrally located only 5 miles from the Lihue Airport. It's easy to visit both the North Shore and the Napali Coast, along with the East Coast and Waimea Canyon along with all the fun in between! Equally convienent in being next to the Coconut Marketplace for some easy shopping and dining! Only a short walk to a Safeway and a Starbucks.

A favorite spot only two minutes away, is the Wailua River for kayaking, standup paddleboarding and boating to Fern Grotto and Secret Falls! You don't want to miss the Smith Family Luau for the best food and show on Kauai!

A quick 5 minute drive takes you to Lydgate Park for lifeguarded swimming with a lagoon for small children to enjoy the ocean or for anyone to snorkle! Also a playground for kids to enjoy.
