This was our first AirBNB experience and we were so happy we stayed here at Diane and John's place for the second half of our honeymoon. Our flat was so relaxing, well decorated and situated right next to a small beach that seemed like a well kept secret on the island - it was never crowded. Our fridge had juices and pastries and yogurt that provided us breakfast for the whole weekend. There were guidebooks and toiletries and beach towels for us to use too. It was so much more than I expected and we were thrilled with the whole experience.
You can really tell Diane, John, and Jerry have put a lot of thought and work into making the apartment an excellent place to vacation. And you can literally look out of the apartment at a beautiful beach. It was perfect for our Honeymoon.
We only wish we had stayed at your place longer. Our first spot was nice but no comparison in terms of location. We were glad we stayed in your place second so we weren't comparing. At the first place we had highway noise and at your place it was all ocean sounds.
This place is excellence to explore Kauai. To both sides of the island you have very good access. The location itself is very beautiful and lovely decorated. The studio two was exact like on the pictures . Di, John and Geri are great - they gave us a warm welcome and the starter set for breakfast was a great extra other AirBnB don't offer. The highlight to us is the short walk to the Anahola Beach - very nice beach walks every morning and great location to watch the sunrise. We wished we could stay longer.
Aolani was a fabulous home base for all of our adventures on Kauai. Beautifully decorated and well equipped, we felt right at home for our 2 week stay. The suite was just as described and we were greeted on our arrival by Di and Geri and fresh fruit (much of it from their trees) and supplies for breakfast. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend our hosts and this location!
Diane and John and their caretaker, Geri are wonderful hosts....very warm and welcoming and anxious to make your stay comfortable. They have created a lovely place and we so happy to be staying there. Beach is expansive and (email hidden)ch a relaxing and lovely piece of Hawaii. We would highly recommend the (email hidden)ANI .....away from the hustle and bustle of tourists and the ocean out your front door!
Di, John and Geri were amazing hosts! As Di was giving us our introductory tour I couldn't help but think "wow this is better than the Airbnb listing!" The privacy level was great and we never felt unsafe in the area. As we drove up the road to get to the studio we realized Aolani had the best location - it has a direct view of the ocean and is very easy to spot when driving up past sundown. Everything was so clean and organized. We had more than enough fruit and food for breakfast for the 4 days we were there. We will definitely recommend this beachside studio to anyone we know who wants to go to Kauai. This was our first airbnb stay and Aolani has set the standard for our future airbnbs! Awesome experience thanks to Di, John and Geri!

About the Host, Diane
Aloha! I am a professional Sculptor and Painter, and an Interior Designer
My nickname is Di........pronounced Di ....... as in Princess Di :-)
My husband, John, is a contract house builder and designer.
We are Australians (well, I am actually a New Zealander, but spent most of my life in Australia). We spend our time living between Australia and Hawaii. Our dream was to own a beach house in Hawaii; and Kauai captured us! We bought our house five years ago and have completely remodeled it. We love paddling in our kayak up the Anahola River opposite our house and also love swimming, snorkeling,walking and beach-combing. We love good restaurants, fine wine, art galleries and to travel.
We have previously owned four restaurants and also built and run a 6 bedroom self-catered Lodge in country South East Queensland, Australia. When we are not residing in Hawaii our live-in Caretaker, Geri, will gladly assist you with whatever you need. You can see my sculpture and paintings online, just look for Di West.
..............................................We know you will love Kauai as much as we do! :-)
