This studio has its own kitchen & bathroom, separate entrance, high ceilings & vintage Hawaiian decor. It's 5 minutes from the beach, the amazing oceanside bike path, restaurants and stores. Note: As of Dec 2, 2020 Kauai has reinstated the 14-day quarantine for all travelers, and it’s not permitted in a vacation rental. So at the moment we can only host you if you have already quarantined or are a local resident. Keep an eye on Hawaii travel rules as they change frequently.

Die Unterkunft
Whether you are visiting Kauai for a few days, a few weeks, or even a few months, this cute studio apartment surrounded by tropical vegetation and whimsical statues and art objects will quickly make you feel settled and “at home’. It’s part of a small and friendly residential community full of Aloha spirit. You can arrive, move in, unpack and unwind -- or head straight to the beach.

The Space:

This is not a “condo-hotel” room. It’s a self-contained apartment with a high ceiling and a complete kitchen. It’s ideal for two people. It’s fully furnished and equipped and artistically decorated with granite counter tops, etched glass, mirrors, indirect lighting, and marble floor inserts that will remind you of Italy.

The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave and full-size refrigerator. The bed is a king -size bed. There are ceiling fans in the living/sleeping area and the kitchen, and – for hot tropical days and nights – air conditioning. The bathroom has a stall shower.

The Immediate Neighborhood:

The apartment community has a unique ambiance. There’s an outdoor table and stone seats among the trees near the entrance, where you can relax, drink coffee, or sit and chat with other guests. There’s a gazebo, barbecue facility, and open space in the field adjacent to the property.

Several washers and dryers are on site. Off-street parking is available for your use.

We have several bikes you can use, and the oceanside bike/hike trail is 2 blocks away.

The Kauai bird

As you may know, the entire island of Kauai has an abundance of wild roosters and chickens, and they love hanging around near the property. The roosters tend to be quiet in the evening after it gets dark (when they roost), but they are prone to wake up and crow at odd hours during the night. Some people sleep right through it from Day 1, others say they get used to it after 1-2 nights - especially if they have busy, active days and are zonked out by the time they go to bed. We can't do anything about the roosters' body clocks, but we do provide our guests with hermetically sealed packages of earplugs for sleeping! Also running the AC and/or fans during the night reduces the crowing. Some find the chickens and roosters charming (we've seen many of our guests photographing them!) Other people find them annoying. But they are a fact of life in Kauai. We ask our guests not to feed them or encourage them, but they are persistent birds.

One reason the wild chickens and roosters are in such abundance in Kauai is that there were 2 hurricanes (in 1982 and 1992) and domesticated fowl escaped and bred. Unlike Maui and other Hawaiian islands, Kauai never let the mongoose (chicken predator) in to the island.

Kapa’a:

It’s the largest city on the island, although it is a “village” compared with any major mainland city. Kapa’a is centrally located, friendly and picturesque - as noted by recent articles in the Garden Island newspaper and Forbes magazine. At a pinch, you could get around without a car – walking, biking, or using the local bus service - but a car is important for real exploration at your own pace.

You can walk to many stores, restaurants, coffee shops, the Kapa’a post office, banks, the beach, and the bike trail. Kapa’a has numerous specialty restaurants & cafes in all directions -- including seafood, burger places, coffee houses, Thai, Mexican, Czech and Indian restaurants as well as local Hawaiian cuisine.

The Island of Kauai:

There is no shortage of guidebooks and good Internet resources describing this piece of Paradise – but you are invited to relax and discover Kauai at your own pace: “Slow down – this ain’t the mainland”. You’ll find a few recommendations in our Guidebook on the website. After you book, we will provide you with a detailed 27-page “Welcome” message to help you plan your visit, including our personal insights into unique Kauai experiences and local secrets.

Interaction:

Our delightful and energetic manager Milan is assisted by Ida who lives on-site. Both are originally from Slovakia – so if you want to practice your East European language skills, here is your opportunity. With Milan’s and Ida’s help we have managed this apartment for many years. One of them will greet you when you arrive and show you the apartment and the surroundings, and will be available during your stay by phone or e-mail to answer any questions. Otherwise you will have the place entirely to yourself. We don’t disturb you (unless you have a problem), and we don’t put a chocolate on your pillow.

The Price

In addition to the accommodation charge and the cleaning fee, a 14.96% state and county tax is applicable, comprised of the General Excise Tax (GET) and the Transient Accommodation Tax (TAT). That tax is payable no matter where you stay in Kauai. Unlike many of the hotels and resorts, we have no “amenity fees,” no resort fees, no wi-fi fees, no “energy” fees, no fees for use of the bikes, no parking fees, no fees for using the laundry machines – no kidding.

Access:

Kapa’a is about 8 miles north of Lihu’e airport. After you have made your reservation, we will give you specific directions for finding this apartment since it’s well hidden.

For days when you want to sightsee, you can drive easily to the north and south shores of Kauai. When you just want to relax, swim, or body-surf, you can walk to the closest beach (Kapa’a Beach Park) which is a beautiful crescent-shaped stretch of sand and good for swimming since it's protected by an offshore reef. Fuji Beach - also known as "Baby Beach" has shallow calm water and tidepools - great for young children to splash in. Or you can drive a short distance to Lydgate Park or Kealia Beach. Those are good nearby eastside beaches. But be careful -- Kauai is not the languid Caribbean - there are strong waves and potential rip tides at some beaches.

Don’t miss the Kapa’a walk/bike path – Ke Ala Hele Makalae, the “The Path that Goes by the Coast” – there is a great 5-minute video on the web (hint: search Vimeo….). There are several bike rental places in Kapa'a, with reasonable prices. We have a few serviceable (but not fancy) bikes available (see photo) that you can borrow and ride - at your own risk - for the entire 8-mile round trip to the far end of the paved path and back.

We can even arrange to rent you a kayak for a nominal cost for a trip on the Wailua River.

Enjoy the experience of staying in Kapa’a, close to everything - but away from it all!

The fine print:
• Check-in after 3:00 pm, check-out by 11:00 am. Depending on our other bookings, we may be able to offer a late checkout for a small fee, but you will need to arrange that with us in advance.
And please:
• No smoking anywhere in the apartment or within 20 feet of it!
• Follow local Hawaiian custom and remove your shoes when inside the apartment. Otherwise Kauai's famous red dirt will follow you in!
• Be sure to turn off the AC, fans, stove, burners, and coffee maker when you are not in the apartment -- and also when you check out.
• No parties or loud noise -- except near the gazebo at the far end of the grounds.
• Don’t hang beach towels, swimsuits or other personal items on the railings outside your apartment.
• Don't leave your door open for long - mosquitoes will likely find their way in if you do.
• Don't feed or encourage the wild chickens and roosters!
• Don't let any of the cats inside your apartment. You may love the kitties, but be considerate of guests who stay after you (many people are allergic to cats).
• We provide bikes for your use at no charge (basic beach cruisers that show signs of wear including some rust on the metal parts), and you use them at your own risk.
• Notify our on-site team immediately if something needs fixing.

Zugang für Gäste
It’s a complete self-contained apartment with its own kitchen and bathroom and separate entrance. There is a large field adjacent to the apartments (where cars park) with strategically placed rocking chairs to enjoy the view of Sleeping Giant mountain and a field of grazing cows. Also, there’s a gazebo and a barbecue for guest use.

CLEANING AND DISINFECTING BEFORE YOU CHECK IN

This apartment will be deep cleaned and disinfected before you check in, in accordance with the Airbnb Enhanced Clean program. Over and above those procedures, we also add extra disinfecting, using a BioSpray Surface Cleaner and Sanitizer system . You can look up BioSpray, but here’s a quote from their website:

“The quick-drying BioSpray D2 removes residual moisture from surfaces and is recommended for use as a sanitizer on food processing equipment, dairy equipment, food utensils, dishes, silverware, glasses, sink tops, countertops, refrigerated storage, and display equipment and other hard nonporous food contact surfaces. Lab calibrated spray-and-shoot technology for more effective coverage, reaching inside even the smallest cracks and crevices, with better results than manual sprayers or wipes.”

Also:
“BioSpray D2 is a combination of isopropyl alcohol and a powerful quaternary ammonium compound.” It is a hospital-grade disinfectant and is “included on EPA list of disinfectants for use against SARS-COV-2 (Search EPA# 73232-1).”

There is no place on earth quite like Kauai for natural beauty, outdoor activities, and the relaxed tropical island way of life (the Aloha spirit). My husband Jack and I enjoy the eastside bike path where you can cycle, walk, or jog traffic-free for 4+ miles (8 miles round-trip), and taking the dog for a walk by the ocean. We love travel, but we love staying home too. Since Airbnb came into existence, it’s possible to do both at the same time. We offer you a fully furnished tropical Hawaiian-style apartment as your “home from home” during your vacation, in a friendly community – right in town yet away from it all – close to beaches and attractions but with local ambiance. By the way, the sunglasses in my profile photo are not an effort to be incognito but because I was on the beach facing a bright tropical sun!
