Interaction with Guests
I am a very social person, for the most part, I love meeting people and learning about what interests them, where they have traveled or anything else they are willing to share about themselves. Serafin is a warm and hospitable person who enjoys getting to know visitors from around the world.
We are 420 friendly (and legal)!....That means, Marijuana is used as a medicine here, legally.
We have three small, short-haired cats named Kiwi, Calliann and Mr. Gato who share our living space.

Our home is located on the edge of the Wailua River State Park and the Wailua Complex of Heiaus. In Wailua, you’ll find a variety of sightseeing opportunities and outdoor activities. Kayak the Wailua River in Wailua River State Park, take a boat ride to the Fern Grotto, or take photos at Opaekaa Falls. Don’t forget to try and spot the Sleeping Giant in the Nounou Mountains or take a hike up this scenic ridge. Sacred places like Polihau Heiau, the large lava-rock temple of Kauai’s last king, Kaumualii, can also be found on the East Side. And be sure to visit Kapaa Town to discover fine Hawaiian craft pieces, aloha-print shirts, jewelry and art.
But the golden beaches of the Coconut Coast may be the area’s biggest draw. Unwind at Anahola Beach Park, whale watch at Donkey Beach or watch the surfers at Kealia Beach to the north. Lydgate Beach Park in Wailua has two lava rock enclosed ocean pools that are perfect places for families and first-time snorkelers. Fun in the sun awaits you on the Coconut Coast.

Amazing hosts, great location, all facilities were perfect, good wifi, cool cats.
Serafin and Michelle made our few days with them very special. Serafin drove us around when we inquired about a taxi, so generous. And Michelle is a wonderful lady, full of life and energy.
We wanted to move in!
We had a fantastic time with Michelle & Serafin. They made us feel extremely welcome in their home. They gave us great information about the island and we left feeling we experienced the real Kauai. We highly recommend them and their location is perfect for exploring the whole island. Can't wait to visit them again. We will treasure our memories there.
Michelle & Seraphine made our Kauai trip unforgettable! They were so helpful and lovely! We had a great time!
The house is spacious, awesome and clean as well as our room! The location is also perfect, close to the airport and to many beautiful sights. I can highly recommend this place and if I go back, I will definitely visit them again!
Our stay with Michelle was truly remarkable. Her place is very clean and fully equipped. The king is extremely comfortable and her kitchen comes with space for you to store fruits from the farmers markets and to cook as you need. Both Michelle and Serafin are gracious hosts and very personable. Highly recommended.
Amazing host! One of the best experience on AirBnB I've had so far. Michelle and her husband are accommodating and kind and I only wish I could have stayed with them longer. It's a beautiful house, too.
We had a very good and lovely stay at Michelle and Serafin. We had a warm welcome and lots of support and information during our stay, and we were discussing and laughing a lot. The room was good, own bathroom and big kitchen and fridge to use - very good. Michelle and Serafin even recorded the Merrie Monarch Festival for us, so that we could see it in the evening. The surrounding was nice, some noice from the street that passes by, specially in the morning (night no problem). As we were discovering the island and left early - it was ok for us. Mahalo again for a great time with you :-).
Wow!! Je n'ai que de bons commentaires sur cet endroit. Nous y avons demeuré pendant 1semaine et l'ambiance qui y reigne nous a fait sentir comme si on était dans notre propre maison. Les hôtes, Michelle et son conjoint, sont vraiment très acceuillants et sympathiques. Vous pouvez leur demander n'importe quoi ils sont prêts a tout pour répondre à votre demande. La maison est très vaste : une belle grande cuisine avec des beaux électroménagers neufs, une belle terrasse exterieure, un grand salon, et deux chambres spacieuses avec les lits vraiment confortables (un queen et un king). Situé a Kapàa, donc au mileu de tout. Si vous désirer demeurer a Hawaii pour quelques jours, voir quelques semaines, C'EST LA PLACE OÙ ALLER!!!
