About This Listing
I am offering a room for rent with a full size bed in a clean furnished three bedroom one bath home with laundry room, and spacious kitchen/living room. The front door is usually left open for airflow, but can be closed and or locked upon request. There is also a furnished back patio for smokers or people who just want to cruise outside and enjoy Kauai's fresh air. The house is an older house. Also have a small hangout spot on the roof which is great for sunsets and starry nights. The neighborhood and house are typically quiet at night except for the sounds of the occasional farm animals, and passing cars. It is common friends and company to come by and visit. Guests are also welcome to have visitors. We like to keep a friendly and social enviroment. There are also friendly dogs, goats and pigs on the property behind the house. Old town Kapaa and bus stops are about 15 minute walk away. I have many ties with private hiking guides, horseback tours, photo tour guides, kayak guides, photographers, yoga instructors, tahitian dancers, belly dancers, fire dancers, kayak guides, zip-line tour guides and concierges who can help you get the most out of your Kauai experience.
bathroom, kitchen, living room, back patio, garage, yard, and roof for star gazing. (everything except my room)
Interaction with Guests
This is a place for friendly, easy going, low maintenance travelers. Typically I will see guest in the morning before they set out on adventures and I try to give them ideas and pointers on places to go and things to do. Then we see each other at night and share about the events of the day. Other interaction depends my schedule and your personality. If im available and a guest seems outgoing and wants to chat, have drinks, share meals, or go on an adventure, I love to experience new people. Sometimes guest, seem to want to be left to do their own thing, so I just be as accommodating as possible, and let them have their space.
Typically a quiet neighborhood just outside of town, so it has a rural feel but not secluded. I have one close neighbor, my long time friend Adam and his wife Elena who live next door. Many field of goats and cows. Many people use my road as a back road to get to and from work. So at certain hours traffic does pick up a little.
Bus stop is about a mile away. I also have an old bike that i loan out
Please take shoes or sandals off before entering. Use common sense and be kind and respectful of everyone. Kauai nights can be very quiet and sound travels easily here, so please be considerate of others who may be trying to sleep. Mahalo!
Evan greeted us warmly upon our arrival. His place is clean and has a feel of comfort. It was clean and we had a good nights sleep. I would rate it at at 2 star hotel lever, which worked great for us. It is in a slightly rural setting. We appreciated being able to stay there because we had an early flight.
We had a fantastic experience staying at Evan's place! We felt very welcome in his home. He has created a very casual environment where we felt comfortable to come & go as we pleased. It felt like coming home to stay with a friend. Outstanding hospitality! We would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a relaxed vibe and a comfortable bed! We tried to spend most of our time out exploring, but even when we decided to stay in Evan helped us set up the music & showed us where to find the dominoes!
Thanks for everything!

Nice, clean place. Easy to get around the island from Kapaa. Evan was super friendly and gave us some advice on what to see on the island. There were other Air BnB-ers there and it was nice to chat with them as well!
This was my first time using airbnb and it was a fantastic experience. Evan was a gracious host that made us feel welcome; he offered to let us use his beach stuff and offered drinks for us each night. I highly recommend staying here. The house is in a very convenient location. It is very close to Kapa'a and the north side of Kauai is less than an hour drive away. Whenever I come back to visit Kauai I will try to stay here.
Evan's home provides travelers a retreat from the beaten path. Evan keeps a busy personal schedule but makes time to make his guests feel welcome. He is a great resource for his guests. The room was simple and the bed was comfortable. It was perfect for me and a great value. The neighborhood is great, located in low valley just west of old downtown Kapaa, among ranch land full of happy cows, goats and pigs. I also made a great connection with another guest during my stay at Evan's home. Mucho Mahalo, Evan!
I really enjoyed staying at Evan's house. the location was perfect and the house had everything we need. would definitely stay there again.

About the Host, Evan
Hi my name is Evan Haley. I am a 30 yr old mechanic. I like to hike, fish, hunt, dive, and surf. I am very easy going and friendly. I have a dog (outside) named charles who is very sweet and loving. We also have pet pigs and goats located on the property behind. I am very easy going, and live my life trying to work hard so I can play hard and experience life to the fullest especially here on Kauai.
