Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-2)

My beautiful ground floor garden view studio is centrally located in a private neighborhood in historic Hanama'ulu Town, a former plantation settlement. Perfect for a vacationing single or couple, traveling professionals or returning snow birds.

This fully furnished airy and private living space is a 500 sq. ft ground floor studio with a private entrance, an additional sliding door to a small lanai with a dining table and lounge chair, access to an outdoor shower and off street parking.

Located close to beaches, mountains, town, shopping, restaurants, churches, and is just a short drive to either side of the island.

Exactly what we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Wendy was wonderful to work with and was very accommodating to our travel schedule. Its central location was great for getting around the island. It was only a few minutes from the airport and the main road that would take you north, south or west! The listing description was great and we had no unexpected issues. The outdoor shower was a great amenity to have since we came back very sandy and didn't have to track it through the house. We would definitely stay here again and have already told several of our friends to stay here as well! Thanks Wendy!

Just the Best

  • 5 of 5

This is really a little studio apartment with everything you would have in your own home..so it makes everything so very easy! Towels, first aide kit, dishes, toaster, all the little things a home has that you find you need on vacation but have to do without or buy. Wendy had all my favorite snacks stocked in the fridge as well. The apartment is beautiful, with tile floors, etc. a little patio, laundry, and a laundry line..even an outdoor shower complete with beach equipment. You couldn't ask for a more outfitted place! Wendy is a great hostess, and I experienced nothing but kindness from all the people in Kauai! This location is central to the whole east and south coast..all beaches, the gardens, etc.are just a few minutes away. Also...nice and quiet, private...JUST THE BEST!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with Wendy for 5 days. Wendy was very nice and informative about the island. The room was very comfortable and it was great to have a full size fridge. I loved having a grill on the patio and a washer and dryer. The bathroom is updated. Plenty of hangers in the closet along with extra bath towels, beach towels, ice chests, ironing board and iron. Overall my husband and I would definitely stay there again if we make it back to Kauai.

Very nice studio for a couple

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed the last of September for a week and we really enjoyed it. It was a great size for 2 as we spent a lot of time hiking and exploring during the day and then relaxing here in the evenings. Wendy sent us detailed instructions for how to arrive and where to park and chatted with us for a while when we arrived about where to eat, the best activities, etc. which was very beneficial. Everything she recommended we enjoyed. She also provided quite the spread of breakfast items, including many Hawaiian-made products I hadn't yet tried! The studio felt very high-end and had a nice bathroom. There was no air but had 2 ceiling fans which was adequate except on 1 rather heated evening. She offered another fan in case that happened but we didn't think it was going to be as warm as it was so it didn't bother us not having it. We made simple dinners and lunches so that our dishes could fit into the sink in the kitchenette and it worked well for us. She had many basic food items (such as oil, s/p, etc) which made prep nice and access to a grill which was great but we didn't use. Had a couple soft-sided coolers and freezer packs that worked very well for us as well as beach gear (chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling sets), towels, an outdoor shower, hoses to wash sand off, many guidebooks, an iron/board, and reusable shopping bags for groceries. Very easy to communicate with if you need anything. We had a wonderful time here!

Great Accommodation in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Wendy is a super nice host with a very comfy and nice apartment very close to airport and central Lihue. We enjoyed the stay very much, communication was always easy and she gave us a quick tour of everything upon checkin. The location on the island was ideal as we went to princeville and the nothern coast one day and to Waimea Canyon another day and both places are around 1 hours away. Moreover, all shopping options are close by (Walmart and Safeway). Thanks again for hosting us, Wendy!
