Geodesic Dome located in Kapa'a, private entrance, outdoor kitchen and enclosed bathroom with a lovely tub to soak in after an adventurous day cruising the island. We are located less than a mile from an epic East side beach and Kapa'a town.

The Space

Have you ever been in a Dome? 20 foot diameter structure with Tropical Vinyl Canvas that protects from the elements. Very cool for the adventurous type that enjoys the path less traveled. Enjoy the stary night from the Trek Deck or from the bathtub!

Guest Access

When you stay in the dome you will have your privacy and a relaxing space to come home to after exploring the island.

Interaction with Guests

Interaction with Host is individual to each guest, the dome is your personal get away, and although the hosts live on property, we will honor your privacy. If you need suggestions or a host to go adventuring we are open to that too!

The Neighborhood

We are located walking distance (under 1 mile) to Kapa'a town, and awesome Kealia Beach. If you are hungry Kapa'a has some of the best restaurants on island. The dome is nestled in a valley that although close to town feels hidden from the world.

Getting around

The county bus has a stop close to the address, possible airport pick up and drop off too! Many people hitchhike around the isalnd successfully. The county bus will pick you up most places if you call ahead : (phone number hidden)

Other Things to Note

Although the Dome is enclosed, sometimes the rain and Roosters get loud. If your sensitive bring earplugs. Kauai also has mosquitoes year round. I recommend bringing a bug repellent of your choice :) Also Sunrise is around 7:00am and the dome is East facing therefore the mornings are better spent on the deck. The Dome is adjacent an empty lot and a couple times a year the county cuts the grass down and sometimes people drive in the field. Thought I should mention just in case. Overall the dome is in a natural setting recommended for those who enjoy a path less traveled.

  • My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the dome. All the pamphlets and guidebooks about Kauai talk about the "real" Hawaii- I'm pretty sure this is it. The exterior and interior of the space is beautifully crafted and impressively clean for being essentially a big tent. We enjoyed sitting on the deck am listening to the rain. I'd recommend it to any of my friends traveling to beautiful Kauai.

  • The epic dome was amazing. Just the place for a tranquil stay in Kauai! Amalia was very easy to coordinate with as well. Had a great stay and would highly recommend!

  • The epic dome was indeed epic! Set down from the road on a residential street, the view is all jungle and it feels very remote. The dome itself is very comfortable, and we cooked dinner on the deck using the functional outdoor kitchen. Five minutes to a great beach. This was our favorite air bnb stay yet! Thanks Amalia!

  • The Epic Dome is a gorgeous little oasis- it's really a beautiful spot with pretty decor and lots of comforts. We couldn't believe how hidden away it feels, right there in a normal neighborhood. We loved the indoor-outdoor flow- we spent lots of mornings reading and drinking coffee on the nice deck and strumming the guitar, looking out over the field, watching the geckos on the deck, and playing with the nice cat who always visited us. The neighborhood is cool, and we were so close to good hiking and our favorite north and east-side beaches.

    To be brutally honest, I have to say that this place would be a challenge for anyone who is nervous about bugs. It's definitely kind of like a camping experience- the Dome isn't tightly sealed up, so lots of critters will come visit you. As city dwellers, we had to get used to the very large black spiders that cling to the inside of the dome (we knew they wouldn't kill us, but we aren't used to such creatures right above our sleeping heads and had a tough time at first...). We also encountered a lot of cockroaches, even when our food and garbage were tightly secured away- again, they didn't kill us... but, since we're not so used to them, they did give us a fright at night when they'd slip through the cracks and visit us in the Dome- they definitely live there too, but they seemed to be in abundance... and, we weren't happy to share our bed with them...which they seemed to want to do at times...
    The Dome is like living outside, with the creatures who live outside- I was so happy for the gorgeous flow of all of it, but I admittedly was challenged by the abundance of roaches (I wish I didn't have such a problem with them... but I guess I do when they're in large numbers...) and the freaky spiders. On the plus side, there were NO mosquitoes! And the beauty of the place is really powerful.

    Response from Amalia:

    Thanks for your feed back. Living on Kauai is beautiful but I agree with you that the roaches are a big pain. We normally put sticky traps around to catch the bugs, with your feed back it sounds like we need to spray some poison.

  • Really a cool spot. The Dome site is located on a hillside and very private. I loved cooking outside and being outside for the majority of the time. There was a goat and a cat who came to visit. These vibrant green lizards with orange spots came to visit in the morning.

    Response from Amalia:

    Sorry about the dogs. Ive complained to the neighbors and the humane society a few times. There's not much we can do because of the theme on Kauai "Keep kaua'i country" Maybe there is a high-piched dog alarm I could invest in that would shut them up when they get going. Thanks for your feed back.

  • Amalia was exceptionally sweet and as gracious a host as one could ask for. The dome was clean and spacious, and the view, looking out on a field of bamboo grass with several majestic lychee trees, was beyond restful.

    I was even able to schedule Amalia (who works as a masseuse at a resort on the island) to give my wife a private massage. My wife said it was the best massage she has had in years.

    If you want the glory of camping, the romance of seclusion, many of the comforts of home, the convenience of being a mile from some of the best inexpensive food on the island, all in the jungle, there is no better deal than Epic Dome.

  • We loved the dome! Epic is really the best way to describe it. Totally the perfect place to really experience Kauai. The dome itself is really comfy (and bigger than it seems in pictures). Plus with WIFI, AC, and even a Bluetooth music player, it's really the total package. Plus, Amalia makes everything easy, and even gave us a great hike recommendation. Everything was really top notch. We especially enjoyed coming back after a day at the beach and just relaxing on the deck and listening to the crickets. Would definitely stay there again.

  • We had a lovely stay in the dome and the location on the island is just perfect for a low key experience with all the conveniences readily available. Having a small refrigerator just outside was really handy, and waking up to see the beautiful plant life was lovely!

    Amalia an her husband were absolutely helpful and replied quickly.
    Thank you again.

  • We loved our stay at the Epic Dome! Amalia and Adam are great hosts! The location on the island was very convenient to explore both the north and the south beaches. If you are looking for a unique place to stay that feels outdoorsy but has modern conveniences, the Epic Dome is perfect!

Originally from Santa Rosa CA, I moved to Hawaii in 2002 because I love the tropics. I love creating art and positive relationships. I've been married for 9years and we have 2 wild children that keep us busy and entertained. We both are into the healing arts and made a Dome on the Hillside to practice yoga and massage in. I now work at a fancy resort doing massage and also at an incredible luau fire dancing my character is a Dragon woman, I studied Nursing and one day when I'm grown up maybe I'll be a Nurse Midwife. I love jumping into waterfalls and basking in the sun, in the past my style of travel was backpack minimalist, now I'm starting to enjoy more eclectic dwellings. Being a hostess with Airbnb is a new adventure that allows me to share a creative project with people who are looking for and edge in the circle.
