Kauai is the most beautiful of the Hawaiian Islands because it is the oldest and has had the most time to mature. Kapaa is centrally located and the best location for exploring the Waimea Canyon to the west and the Hanalei Bay to the North. Golf is 10 minutes away. The Wailua river is 5 minutes away. Here you can explore the fern grotto via kayak, SUP, or romantic river boat cruise. The Napali coast snorkel or sunset dinner cruise is a must while you are here. It leaves to the west at Port Allen. Then there are the waterfall hikes and and and and and.......
You do not need a car to live in this area, rental car is recommend though, to take advantage of all there is to do and see on Kauai.
Other Things to Note
It does not get any better than this!
This is my home away from home, please treat it as you would your own.
We enjoyed an 8 nights stay at Rae's apartment which is very spacious, well-equipped and modern. Shops and supermarkets are in walking distance and apartment complex offers swimming pools, community BBQ, laundry and free parking. Kapa'a generally serves as a good starting point to explore the Kauai island. Thanks for sharing this apartment - Mahalo!
Thank you for your review Florian.
I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay.
I just had a new air conditioner installed so it's good to know it's not working as well as it should so that I can contact the company that installed it. I will also get the the wi-fi fixed.
Many happy travels,

English:Our experience with this apartment condo located on the "Plantation Hale Suites" and Mrs. Rae Carmen Kraushar (the landlord) is proving to be a nightmare. I'll go right to the heart of the problem: it is not mentioned on the ad but there is a big construction site adjacent to our block (unit K 14).Between the vibrations that cause the entire apartment to shake, the day-long drone of diesel engines and the incessant beeping of heavy machinery reversing, this vacation has been rapidly turned in hell, especially with our baby 21 months!
This construction site was clearly in existence at the time of our reservation, and we should have been informed.
Exhausted, we decided to leave this place three days after our arrival (we had to stay 8 days), and for now Mrs. Kraushar has not refunded us when she made these promises in writing. Dishonest behavior twice that strongly encourages us to complain up alongside the American police for fraud and report the behavior of the Consulate of France House (I'm french) nearby.
We are currently waiting for an effective and satisfactory resolution of this problem through airbnb.

Notre expérience avec cet appartement situé sur le condo " Plantation Hale Suites "et Madame Rae Carmen Kraushar (la propriétaire) se révèle être un cauchemar. Je vais aller directement au coeur du problème: il n'est pas mentionné sur l'annonce mais il y a un gros chantier, une construction qui jouxte l'immeuble (et qui existe depuis un moment vu l'avancée du chantier) . Pour résumé, la journée est rythmée par le bruit des bulldozers, marteaux piqueurs , les "bip" des camions qui reculent et les vibrations de tous ces engins...un enfer, particulièrement avec notre bébé de 21 mois!!
Exténués ,nous avons décidé de quitter cet endroit 3 jours aprés notre arrivée (nous devions rester 8 jours) ,et pour l'instant Madame Kraushar ne nous a pas remboursé alors qu'elle s'y était engagée par écrit. Un comportement malhonnête par deux fois, qui nous incite fortement à déposer plainte auprés de la police américaine pour escroquerie et signaler ce comportement auprés du Consulat de France (je suis française).
Nous sommes actuellement dans l'attente d'une résolution efficace et satisfaisante de ce problème par airbnb.

We stayed 8 nights at Rae's condo and we really enjoyed our time and we regret not to have more time there. The condo is well equipped and we felt very comfortable from the beginning and liked the design. It was perfect for us as we were looking for some relaxation, there are not many people at the beach or at the pool. (If you swim in the ocean watch out for the currents and the rocks or go to our recommondation: Anini Beach in the north.)
The location of the condo in Kapaa is great with supermarkets, farmers market and restaurants near by and car parking is in front of the condo.
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful but most of all we really appreciated Rae's quick responses from the first inquiry onwards. She is a great host and for sure future guests will enjoy staying in her condo as we did.
I stayed here with my husband for a week in late April/early May 2014. Overall, our stay was great! I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the cons listed below.
-Most of the condo was recently renovated.
-The condo is clean and comfortable for a reasonable price. Good value!
-We were looking for a good home base from which to explore Kauai, and this condo was perfect for that. (Plantation Hale is not really one of those resorts where you check in and never leave until your flight home. Which is fine because, as beautiful as Kauai is, you’ll definitely want to explore it.)
-We liked the location in Kapaa, which is somewhat centrally located, so it’s relatively easy to access the north shore, the south shore, and the Waimea Canyon area. It’s also close to some good restaurants and grocery stores.
-The location of this unit within Plantation Hale is also great. It’s on the ocean side, which means a better view and quieter than the side abutting a fairly busy street.
-We had an issue with the air conditioner not blowing cold air. If you have the same issue, contact the owner--she is willing to fix the problem promptly.
-It’s fair to say there’s an ocean view from the condo, but it’s a distant ocean view.
-The shower was not part of the renovations. It’s serviceable but not great.
-The bed is probably just fine for most sleepers, but if you’re used to high-quality mattresses at home, you might find this mattress disappointing. It is a king-sized bed, though, which is nice.
