About Cathy and Bill Cowern

We have made Kauai our home for the past 28 years, originally coming from New Hampshire. We have spent the years developing the lovely arboretum that is now our property as well as a 4000 tree farm slated to provide biomass to energy production as well as tropical hardwood lumber.

Cathy and Bill Cowern purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Cathy and Bill Cowern chose Kauai

We love our Lawai Valley location for the quiet, serene, rural location it offers while still being close to many island attractions.

What makes this apartment unique

Our convenient location makes it easy to access all of Kauai for your day-trips and provides the comfort and convenience of home. The washer/dryer allows you to pack light and return home with clean cloths!

Quiet, Relaxing, Peaceful Southside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Bill and Cathy's guesthouse. Their property is conveniently located away from the hustle and bustle of the large Southside resorts but close enough to visit the beautiful beaches and gardens, or get in a game of golf, or take advantage of the fantastic shopping opportunities. But by the end of a packed day of activities we were more than happy to return to our hilltop oasis to retreat into quiet solitude, blissful breezes, and expansive views over the canopy of the surrounding lush landscape. The cottage has a spacious floor plan with lots of windows to let in light and catch the breezes. Its simplicity is its charm. We especially were grateful for the washer and dryer, large gas grill and the comfortable bed and linens. The rainbow trees that line the long driveway leading to the cottage welcomed us back each day...and we hope, will welcome us back next time we visit this enchanting island.

Truly a piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We came to Hawaii for a week-- but after spending three days on Oahu, we figured the rural Hawaiian experience was lost a long time ago. All that changed when we checked in with Bill and Cathy. Hosting us in a truly phenomenal property, we spent a remarkable four days enjoying the most scenic island in the state with a front row seat to the amazing morning vistas and brilliant sunsets.

The location itself is an absolute treat. Set back from the (already limited) development on the island, you can truly get away from it all here. But in addition to the beautiful property, your hosts have thought of everything to make your stay more enjoyable-- even including some aloe for the sun you'll end up staying out in just a bit too long.

I'd also be willing to wager there are not hosts as warm and friendly as these anywhere in the United States.

I'm not prone to embellishment, so believe me when I say that I could not have asked for a better experience-- nor would I have gotten one from resorts on the island (which we visited briefly after arriving). This tremendous experience was easily worth double the price, and not only does it come with my highest recommendation, but when we return to Kauai, we will be sure to return.

Thank you again for a fantastic few days.
