About Jean, Bruce, Justine

I was born and raised in Kapa'a but have spent most of my adult life on the Big Island. We currently live on the mainland, visit Kaua'i twice a year, and plan to move back permanently in 5-10 years.

Jean, Bruce, Justine purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jean, Bruce, Justine chose Kauai

I bought Kini Place to maintain my roots in Kaua'i, and to be able to reside close to my family when on-island.

What makes this condo unique

This second story corner unit offers pleasant cross breezes and a partial ocean view. The Sleeping Giant Mountain can be readily seen from the lanai which runs the length of the living room and bedroom.

The swimming pool (with hot tub) and barbeque areas are located immediately behind the building and can be seen from this unit’s lanai. Shuffleboard is also available one courtyard over.

The building’s pay laundry room is located just downstairs of this unit. It contains two washers and two dryers.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen is very well stocked and the unit is clean. Traffic is a bit noisy during the day, but it is quiet for sleeping. Nice pool area and the grounds are well maintained. It is centrally located between the north and south shores. Great view of Sleeping Giant. We did not need to use the air conditioning as we had some cooler nights. Lots of shopping and restaurants close by. The owners were great to work with. Would definitely stay there again--and we are next year!!!!

Great condo for the price and location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just got back from a 10 day vacation in Kauai to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We had a fabulous time in Jean's condo. She was great at communicating and I even met her sweet niece Justine, whom takes care of the property on-site, since Jean lives on the mainland. This condo was very cute and comfortable. If you want a home base in a great location and plan to be out and about most of the time, it is perfect. Kapaa is located in the middle (east side)of the island which makes it perfect for day trips to north, south, and west side of the island. (The North Shore is the most beautiful area on Kauai, but very $$.) The kitchen is well equipped for cooking, which we did for breakfast, she even provided zip lock bags and tupperware, which is really convenient to take snacks for the beach. The bathroom is a good size with a great shower (love the showerhead) with complimentary basic toiletries. The lanai has a nice view of mountains and pools. I have to say the condo has excellent ventilation and we enjoyed many cool breezes while relaxing. The pool and hot tub are nice and well maintained as is the BBQ grill. Grounds are lush, green, and beautiful. We did use the AC at night, as we are used to sleeping at a cooler temperature. The beach nearby is nice to watch sunrise or walk on but too rough to swim or play in. Excellent restaurants walking or short drive away. We loved Hukilau Lanai (best calamari ever!) and Lavo Lavo Beach club (nice happy hour). We also frequented Foodland (2 minute drive) and the yummy food trucks like Al Pastor, Chicken in a Barrel, and Nom Kauai (5-7 minute drive) For a very special meal, check out J02. It is a bit of a drive, to get to the nicer, calmer beaches on the island, but overall this was a convenient location on Kauai (airport is 10 min away). Great value for the price!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, Ameeta! We, too, enjoy the convenient location of Kini Place and appreciate the mention of your fave nearby eateries as we’re always looking for ono (delicious) food while on Kaua’i as well. We are very pleased to have been a small part of your 10th anniversary and wish you continued happiness.

Convenient and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great time at our stay here.


There are multiple beach spots within walking distance.

Bars/Dining nearby

Great location with 3 pools if you choose to stay in

3 beds total make for a cozy stay

Bedding was very well protected and sheets clean (Im deathly aftaid of bed bugs)

Fully stocked kitchen!

Very friendly staff


Older carpet throughout (except the kitchen) and onto the balcony which adds a certain older smell.

Swamp cooler works but water that drips gets onto the carpet that is on the balcony.

Again, we had a great stay I would just suggest getting rid of the carpet.

Garbage disposal works but is very loud

Best Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Kauai and if we are ever fortunate enough to return we would definitely rent this unit again. It is exactly as described and for the six weeks we were there we were very happy to call it home. Centrally located on the island you have easy access to all attractions. The second floor location in the building is also excellent. Being a corner unit it has louvred side windows in both the kitchen and living areas as well as the doors to the large lanai. This and the ceiling fans meant we always had a cooling breeze and we seldom used the air conditioning. Additional pluses were the large walk in shower, luxurious towels, ample free parking and extra chairs on the lanai. We enjoyed every morning on the lanai sipping our coffee and admiring the views of Sleeping Giant and the pool and garden area. Because we stayed for an extended period housekeeping was included and towels and bedding were changed regularly. The wifi service was excellent and never failed us. The well stocked kitchen allowed us to cook many meals at home. If we had any questions, the owners were always quick to reply. We would not hesitate to rent this unit again! Awesome unit, location and service! Thank you Jean, Bruce and Justine!

Great place in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We like staying in this general area of Kauai for many reasons. First one can drive to anywhere else on the Island in less than an hour. This location provides easy access to the airport, Costco and other shopping. We had various family members staying with us for 3 of our 4 weeks. Everyone was quite comfortable with the 3 beds and living space provided. The lanai overlooks a very handy BBQ area, the nice pool + hot tub + fresh water outdoor shower and has a great view of the "sleeping giant" mountain. The condo came stocked with any/all kitchen items we had a reason to use. Many an evening was spent having a nice dinner at home. The information provided by the owners was complete and accurate which was much appreciated. The Plantation Hale front desk staff were all so welcoming and friendly. We would recommend this property for anyone vacationing on Kauai!
