We had a great stay, Everything at the studio was as I expected. Neil was a gracious host, the setting was beautiful and very easy to access as we explored the island. Definitely worth a return stay when I come back to finish exploring the Garden Isle.
One suggestion, if you use any of the stuff left by previous guests, check it out before you go to the beach- we grabbed a damaged snorkel that made for a more difficult swim, but it wasn't worth leaving the beach to go buy a new one...
We recently stayed in Neil and Sharon's Jungle Studio for 6 days. The location was great for our purposes: surrounded by the "jungle" under their own living area, easy access to Poipu for beautiful beaches and good choices for dining, and close to Waimea Canyon State Park for all of its beauty. The studio is roomy and basic, with an adequate kitchen that includes a full size fridge and enough cooking utensils to cook a simple meal (double hot plate). While we never met Sharon, Neil is very friendly and eager to help with any suggestions. When we called him with any questions he was always immediately responsive. We both enjoyed the peaceful environment and the studio's privacy. Thanks to you both, we look forward to our next stay on your wonderful island!
Thanks Neil and Sharon for the wonderful experience at your beautiful Studio!!! Well located, great energy, super clean, super comfy, great great great hosts, warm, resourceful, best place on Earth!
We had a great stay in the Jungle Studio! It is nice and quiet there and a great place to relax. Found the bed very comfortable and enjoyed having the screened in deck. Neil was very helpful in suggesting places for us to visit and we greatly appreciated his help. Overall we were pleased with the accommodation!
The location is absolutely gorgeous, up atop a deadend road, way way up from the town below. It feels like you are in a rainforest! We enjoyed taking walks around the area.
That said, we probably wouldn't stay there again. The unit had a strong odor of mildew or mold and was a bit dingy. There was black mildew or mold on the shower curtain and the carpets felt sticky. The price has been lowered since we rented it, which probably makes it more reasonable.
The hosts were courteous and kind and this is a nice part of the island to stay at because there is a dearth of lodgings in this area. With some additional TLC, the unit could be great!
Thank you for this feedback - great that you found the location gorgeous. Being up in the trees and Kauai having one of the wettest spots on earth does bring its challenges. Since your visit we replaced the bar stools, and will replace the shower curtain. If you can think of specific ideas that would make you feel the unit has had some TLC, please email us - we would appreciate that a lot. Thanks again for staying with us.
Such a unique spot! We loved the studio. It was spacious and in such a great setting. Neil and Sharon are warm and friendly people - with lots of insider info on places to go, things to do and what to eat. This location is great - close to many sights and amenities - still having the feeling of Being in the middle of the jungle.
Staying at Neil and Sharon's place was one of the highlights of our trip. We spent the first half of our week in Kauai on the rainer North Shore, and then stayed with them in Kalaheo for a few days. They were both so very nice without being over-attentive. Neil had great suggestions for what to do and see, and even left us two cold beers chilling in the fridge. Overall a great experience - we would definitely stay there again!
The location is also pretty great - the house is up a beautiful street in the jungle but also very close to more developed towns where you can shop, have a nice meal, people watch, etc. Not far from Kalaheo, Poipu, Hanapepe...
This is a really neat place to stay with wonderful hosts. You are in the shade in the trees up out of town, which is nice after a day in the sun. This little room have everything you need to just hang out and relax and cook, or you can hop in the car and the beaches are just a short drive away. Kalaheo has some great restaurants and a really cool park. You are really close to Poipu for great sunsets and to Waimea to go see and hike in the canyon. Neil and Sharon are really helpful with suggestions on places to eat and see. I recommend staying here or any other of their rentals as they are great people!
Diese Unterkunft hat uns leider gar nicht (website hidden) war feucht, schmutzig und hat stark gerochen
The Jungle Studio was everything it says it was. Great location, clean, very comfortable room. It was just right for us, and we couldn't beat the "bang for the buck". Thank you Neil and Sharon for your hospitality.
