Enjoy on-the-beach-living! This ROOM for rent in a charming beach home that is on the beach path in the midst of dining, shopping, and nightlife. It is located in one of the few Kauai locations where you don't have to rent a car!
The room has air conditioning available and a window with a beach path view. There is a closet and armoire. DVD player and monitor (no cable), and iPod docking station and radio are also provided.
This is a room in my home. The room is private and has an AC unit. The bathroom is shared. Guests have living area, kitchen and laundry privileges (the home is shared).
Interaction with Guests
I work almost every day, sometimes from home. Sometimes I work in the middle of the night (quietly) and take a nap during the day. Therefore, guests self check-in.
Accordingly, late check-in is just fine. Also, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you thoroughly read all correspondence regarding any reservation before arriving on Kauai. This will help you find and access the property.
If you see me, I know the island very well and can help you with suggestions on where to go and what to do. You can also text or e-mail me for pointers.
We're right in the middle of all the action! You can walk to virtually every tourist attraction in this town! Only caveat: be prepared for the nightly sounds of karaoke (we provide ear plugs and the room fans/ACs can help mask the noise at night).
We are on the beach path not directly on the beach. It is approximately a 2 minute walk to get to the beach in the pictures. FYI US News voted Kalapaki Bay the #4 thing to do on Kauai after 3 remote natural attractions. This is a great spot if you like being in the middle of all the hustle and bustle!
Lihue is central to the island's attractions. Many visitors enjoy using this area as their "hub."
Many things are within walking distance. A Kauai Bus stop is located nearby. Fun Jeeps and convertibles are available to rent (you will be emailed info about this after you make a reservation). Although you will not need a car in this location, it is recommended in order to see the island's gorgeous natural scenery.
Other Things to Note
The home can be noisy certain nights of the week due to nearby bars, etc. We do provide earplugs and highly recommend using them and the AC as a white noise machine. It's because we are right in the middle of all the fun.
Instant book in enabled so you can book right now without approval. Also, late check-in is fine because you self check-in.
Please be respectful and don't bring any strangers into the home. There are tons of fun places to meet new friends around the home. Please do not take anything away from the home except for beach towels (and please return them). This is a no-smoking property.
Relax and have fun!
Solveig and her cozy beach bungalow we're a joy. Her attention to detail shines through and made the process a breeze. Clear instructions for arrival AND the visit were great. Much to do within walking distance and I enjoyed my beach runs and oceans swims steps away! Great job Solveig - Thanks!
Solveig made sure to welcome us and give us all the information about the house and recommendations for things to do. The house is a bit noisy because it shares a parking lot with a bar on one side and a club on the other side and also there are a lot of roosters that surround it. However, by using the provided earplugs I was able to sleep alright. I wouldn't say it's the most comfortable bed but since the place is so affordable it's not so bad. Also, there are a lot of great bars and restaurants within a block of the house which is nice. The awesome beach is just a 2 minute walk away and you can see it from some of the rooms. The house has air conditioning in each room and the kitchen and bathroom are fully outfitted.
Great place, nice view, great price! Parking is a little chaotic on the street if you drive, but someone at the rental car place downstairs was nice enough to move their vehicle when we arrived so we could park close to unload.
Solveig was a great host, even left us a parting gift!
Only complaint is that someone cooked the first evening we were there, and the smell stayed in the open part of the house for the whole time we were there. I tried opening the windows (cool outside anyway) to clear the air but someone shut them and turned the A/C on, so that didn't help.
Solveig picked us up personally from the airport and from the first minute of meeting her, we found her and amazing person. The double room we rented from her, had everything and then some. Solveig explained how everything worked in the house and made us feel very welcome and looked after. Solveig popped in every now and again to see how we were and we enjoyed her visits very much. Our heartfelt thanks for everything you did for us, Solveig! We hope to stay with you again sometime soon!
What a great and positive first air bnb experience staying at this Cabana place. SOLVEIG was such a detail oriented and experienced host. Her place was neat, tidy and well maintained. I had the ocean room overlooking Kalapaki beach. I was able to go around the area on foot since it's close to restaurants, shops and the beach. I purpisely came to Kauai to chill, no intense itinerary but just to hang out and relax at the beach so this place served my purpose for the visit. SOLVEIG gave a detailed, reasonable house rules and expectations that made it really clear and easy to follow. I will surely recommend this place and would be happy to come back again in the future.
Host made us feel like houseguests gave us a full rundown on where everything was and couldn't have been more welcoming! Neighborhood was exactly as described in ad, right in the middle the action!

I'm into healthy living. So I'm a vegetarian and leaning towards raw. I recycle and compost. The home is cleaned with eco-friendly products.
I have 3 businesses on the island but finishing college one day is part of my life plan. One of my businesses rents fun cars including jeeps and convertibles. It's called Fun Cars. I am also a realtor and can "hook you up" with your dream home.
I love to dance, hike and swim. I especially love partner dancing such as salsa and swing!
I traveled extensively when I was younger and adore learning about other cultures. My favorite things are great food, fun people, and I love living at the beach!
