About the property

Location Location Location.. You Can Not Beat This Location. Kapaa Sands!

Centrally located on east coast of Kauai, commonly known as the Royal Coconut Coast. If you have found this property you have found a Jewel. No other coastline provides you with central access to both north and south shores; no other coastline provides you the famous kauai coastal bike path to deserted white sand beaches. Kapa'a Sands is one of the most sought after destination points due to its island access and uniqueness. No Parking fees, no wifi fees, no resort fees, and no amenity fees. This is a small boutique property that is preserved in the 'old Hawaiian charm' and is the closest property to waters edge.

About Dennis & Christine Vogel

My wife Christine and I came to Kauai and immediately fell in love with this place. We are so excited to have been given the opportunity to own and share it as a vacation rental with you!

Dennis & Christine Vogel purchased this studio in 2014

Why Dennis & Christine Vogel chose Kauai

After touring the island and then walking and biking along the coconut coast, It became very apparent to us that this location offered a unique opportunity to experience 'old Hawaii' the way it used to be. Other places are quite nice but none have the 'end of the road' feeling of peaceful seclusion and being lost in paradise.

What makes this studio unique

Built on the historical site of an old Shinto temple where mountains, gardens, rivers and ocean meet have made this the best location on island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Charming little condo. Our stay was better than we could have imagined. Perfect location on the beach with all the amenities we needed. The studio was the perfect amount of room for my boyfriend and I- more spacious than we expected and adorably decorated. We fell in love with the island and will definitely be back to Kapa'a. There was so much to do in town and beautiful sights all around the island were just a quick car ride away. Didn't want to leave!

Terrific Ocean View Property with Loads of Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights in this property and absolutely loved it. Not only is the condo very clean and nicely appointed with fabulous views of the ocean, but the owners have been extremely thoughtful in providing all sorts of amenities that made our stay so much nicer. Beach chairs, beach towels, masks, snorkels, beach bags, guide book, binoculars... all kinds of things we could or would never have brought with us but which made our days there so much fun. The kitchen was fully loaded with appliances and very functional. One of the best features in our opinion was all of the fresh air ventilation. We opened windows on 3 sides of the condo, and enjoyed fabulous breezes and temperatures day and night. The balcony and outdoor chairs were great features. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Dennis and Christine.

Beautiful View!

This studio was perfect for my husband and I. It had all the necessities we needed for cooking. The view was stunning. The property was very clean and quiet. The pool was never crowded. No problem finding parking. We loved it!

Central location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect size. Lots of bonuses (boogie board, snorkel equipment, binoculars). Best location on the Island imo. Near airport, grocery store, Starbucks, and basically equidistant from North/South side attractions. Will use again.

Gem Romantic Cozy Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 12 nights here and nearly cried when we had to leave. We reserved to celebrate our 30 Anniversary. To start off with the photos and other reviews were very accurate and we could not have been more pleased. The owners were very quick to respond during reservations and all arrangements were well planned and made our arrival a snap.

As far as the unit goes it is located upstairs (stairs only) right over the ocean. The space is small but with two adults it was perfect. The kitchen had everything we could have needed. ( we did leave behind a pair of martini glasses please enjoy we did😀). We did use the kitchen frequently because we enjoyed the best part of the condo every night... The balcony here has the most amazing view one could imagine. It is unobstructed looking straight out into the ocean for miles. The roar of the waves is constant and loud like others have said. We loved the noise and miss it now.

The location of the condo in Kapaa turned out to be great. It allowed easy access to anywhere with ease. We spent most of our time going north to Hanalei which took 30-40 minutes but is the most beautiful drive on the island. The condo complex was so quite, quaint and clean. The pool area was ours to enjoy we went every night and never saw one person very nice.

On the balcony was snorkel equipment, two great Tommy Bahama chairs very nice at the beach, boogie boards, small table with chairs, A chaise lounge, beach umbrella, clothes line.....everything you would need at the beach or any outings. PS in kitchen cabinet two ice chests.

Not wanting to screw up my 30 Anniversary I was very pleased with all of it and so was my wife. Thank you Christine & Dennis

My last words will be that we live in the Los Angeles area so we are used to hot weather and AC. This unit as most in Kauai do not have AC this may be an issue for some. We dealt with it but during July it was very warm day and night. This is not a complaint but a review.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here last week and had the most wonderful experience. We usually stay at resorts, but we wanted to save money and found this condo. The price was great, especially for an oceanfront condo. The size of the condo was perfect for the two of us and the condo was decorated very nicely and very clean. There is no AC, which I was worried about, but it was never an issue when we slept. We loved sleeping with the windows open every night. The first night the noise of the waves crashing made it hard for me to sleep, but I got used to it and loved hearing the noise. The view was stunning and I would purposely wake up around 5:30 AM just to catch the sunrise every day. The area was nice and quiet and we saw a few people, but it definitely was not the overcrowded resort feel.

As for location, this condo is perfect. We love to explore the entire island whenever we visit Hawaii, and since this was our first time to visit Kauai, we knew we would be going all over. Staying in Kapa'a was very central and had tons of great restaurants, shops, and coffee close by. Our drives to Waimea and Hanalei were never too long from this location either. We LOVED Kauai and will definitely be back and will make sure we book this condo again. We wish we could just live in it forever! Thank you Dennis and Christine for the perfect home away from home. :)

Perfect for two!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the first half of our week long trip, the only mistake was not staying here the whole time, we loved it. Perfect space for two! The balcony is great, the breeze is always flowing and sleeping to the sounds of the ocean was amazing! The beach out front is great for soaking in tide pools (not really a swimming beach) after a hike or long day at one of the many beaches on the island. The kitchen offers everything you could ask for including a large fridge to store everything. Local restaurants are within walking range, and our favorite north shore and south shore beaches are within 35 minutes so you are perfectly centered. Thanks so much for having us, we already want to come back!
