We had a wonderful time at Di and John's beautiful studio! It's such a great location: you can see the ocean and river from your terrace! The studio is very nicely decorated with a lot of attention to detail. Everything you need is there: the nicely selected breakfast supplies (granola, bagels, croissants, butter, jelly, milk, juice, fresh fruit...) awaited us when we artived. Beach towels and mats, large zip bags to transport wet swimwear, a flashlight...
Since Di and John were out of town during our stay, Geri was taking care of us. She greeted us when we arrived and showed us the studio. If we had questions she was always there for us.
We loved our Anahola experience and highly recommend a stay at Di and John's studio!
My husband and I stayed at the Romantic Studio by the Sea for 11 days. It was perfect for our needs. Nicely decorated, well equipped, very comfortable bed and very clean. Di and her husband were in Australia during our stay but the caretaker, Geri, was wonderful. She made us feel very welcomed, gave advice on restaurants and things to do and even taught me how to weave palm leaves. She made sure we always had plenty of supplies.
The location is great , very quiet but you can get anywhere on the island in a reasonable amount of time. The beach was lovely and you can walk a very long way, often without running into anyone else. If you are looking for a quiet place to recharge, this is it! We will definitely return to this lovely property!
What a fantastic place! We had such a wonderful stay. It is a beautiful studio, in an incredible location. And, you have made it an especially welcoming place with all of your attention to detail and special touches - the big zip lock bag for putting wet bathing suits in our suitcases was extremely appreciated, as was the well stocked kitchen, laundry, and so on. Thank-you again for a wonderful experience, and give our regards to Geri, who was just perfect.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this studio at Anahola. Di & John's hospitality made for a very pleasant experience and a wonderful way to experience Kaua'i.
This was truly one of the best Airbnb experiences we've had, and we've had quite a few. Di and John, were extremely warm and welcoming. The place was stocked with fruit, milk and bagels when we got there and we were offered them each day thereafter. The location was also perfect. The island is small and it felt very central, not to mention unique as it's situated right where the river meets the sea. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
Me and my newly engaged fiance decided to do a scouting trip to Kaua'i to plan for our destination wedding. At the time of booking, this romantic studio by the sea was a new booking with no reviews and we took a leap of faith because we were both charmed by the lovely photos. However, even the pictures are not enough to do this home away from home justice.
We arrived Christmas day and they thoughtfully gifted both of us with christmas presents to unwrap! We had fresh continental breakfast supplies including some milk, juice and water all ready for us in the fridge. Everything you would possibly need is provided for you and John continued to pop by every other day and give us fresh supplies of bread and fresh fruit. There isn't A/C but the trade winds from the ocean just steps away provide plenty of cool air to circulate through their screened doors with the help of the ceiling fan. The bed was very comfortable and even the air freshener that they use is incredibly pleasant. Everything is so thoughtfully decorated and you can tell they put a lot of love here. My fiance and I both agreed that we truly felt inspired to decorate our own future home to have the same look & feel of the little studio by the sea we felt like was our own during our stay.
Our time here was much more than just a place to sleep at night - it was a completely different experience unlike any other.
John and Di were both incredibly hospitable and truly encompassed the aloha spirit. Thank you both for making it a truly unforgettable stay for us!
We couldn't have wished for a better vacation , with a ten month old ! the pictures do not do justice to the real experience of Di and John's romantic studio by the Anahola river ,meeting the ocean...each morning we were greeted with breathtaking views of the sunrise and the different shades of the sky...same for sunsets..the myriad hues was awesome....we had a rough year especially with a new baby and this stay-action was exactly what my little family needed. Having breakfast and dinner in the cool breeze on the patio with the ocean view was spellbinding...the studio is equipped with excellent kitchen amenities and the bathroom and bedroom were very comfortable as well.... all beach accessories- like towels ,mats ,sand toys beach chairs everything was provided. We had supplies for breakfast as well that our host was kind enough to provide . The path that leads to the studio from the main road has a tunnel of trees which makes for an excellent feeling each time we left/arrived at the studio. Diane and John were such wonderful hosts and were very gracious ! We enjoyed each and every conversation we had with them and they surprised us with gifts for X'mas ! I highly recommend their hospitality and their home for anyone who is looking for a beautiful relaxing experience. I made friends with a sweet neighbor as well who taught me how to make fishes grasshopper and roses out of coconut leaves.....there were two cats and my son had such a wonderful time playing with the cats ..
Di and John were really great, and the studio is excellent. They provided practically everything that we needed for our visit and more (I won't list the extras so that they don't feel obligated to provide them to everyone!), and needless to say we felt very welcomed and looked after. They even checked on us after a big rainstorm to make sure that we were ok, which of course we were.
The space is cozy and very nicely located. I liked being in a quieter area, near the beach, but with easy access to the island, wherever you want to go. I would definitely stay here again.
Di and John are a wonderful couple as hostess and host. Their apartment is cozy, superbly decorated, functional and just in front of a magnificent bay. Their kindness is equal to their generosity : bread, oats, fruits and juices were brought to us in person regularly. To go back there again is part of our dreams.
