Interaction with Guests
Your hosts, Dan and Erin, live part-time in Hawaii and part-time in the Bay Area, so the accommodations are set up to be self-sufficient. When we are in town, we are next door and available to answer questions and offer suggestions.
Our condo is located within convenient walking distance to Anini Beach, Princeville Shopping Center and the Kauai Bus stop as well as just a few minutes drive to Hanalei Bay where we like to enjoy surfing, swimming and sunsets.
We also enjoy being just up the street from the St. Regis hotel, home to the Terrace restaurant and Kauai Grill as well as an open bar and lounge overlooking Hanalei Bay
Although Hawaii tends towards being very automobile-centric, we also have a public bus system ($2) and very expensive taxis available. Our condo is located just 1 mile from the Kauai Bus stop at Princeville Shopping Center. From there, you can get to either Hanalei or Kilauea in just one stop, or you can travel all the way to Kapaa, Coconut Marketplace and Kukui Grove Mall in Lihue on one bus. Using transfers, you can get to and from the airport and all the way to Poipu and Waimea. Bused are infrequentm have intermittent weekend & holiday schedules and call last run pretty early though, so be sure to check the schedule ahead of time.
Other Things to Note
The closest laundromat is 20 mi (30 min) away in Kapaa, though laundry service is available at Princeville Mail Service Center in the Princeville Shopping Center
There is no smoking and no pets in our condo. Smoking is permitted on Complex property > 20 feet away from all buildings. Items are not permitted to hang from outside railings. Quiet hours are between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. Please leave shoes and sand outside.
Great studio close to the beautiful north Kauai experience. Wonderful community with pool and BBQ available after a day spent in the natural beauty of Kauai's north shore beaches and trails.
Very cozy studio, nicely located, perfect for a couple. It actually is better looking in person than on the pictures! The little terrace on the back is wonderful. Dan & Erin made everything very easy and enjoyable for us. Great experience overall.
Bright, clean, spacious apartment. We felt comfortable and at home at this place. The location is a short drive to shops and restaurants. The owners also provided extensive tips on what to see and where is good to eat which was very helpful.
I felt very welcome and comfortable in this condo. The neighborhood is excellent -- very safe and close to many good beaches, restaurants and stores. It was well-equipped with all the kitchen utensils, beach towels, sunscreen, beach chairs, brochures about activities in the area. Although the condo is a small studio, it is well-appointed and feels spacious, especially with the sliding door open to the porch. I would highly recommend this condo.
An ideal place to stay for vacation! The town of Hanalei is only a short drive away with the beach and many places to eat and hang out. Room is clean and comes with towels, beach chairs, WiFi, basic kitchenware, and beach chairs. Comfy couches outside on the balcony, too. I never met the host, but contact via messaging was speedy.
Great location on the North shore; no problem with parking. The apartment was very clean, as in the pictures. We especially loved the patio and the hot tub.
We would recommend it. We enjoyed the stay here much more than in a similarly priced hotel on the East shore.
Adventurous couple splitting time between the Bay Area and Kauai, blending technology and nature. Renting 1 studio full-time and occasionally seeking short-term home-trade for 1 bedroom apartment.
