My arrival was a day early and fortunately, the Sheila was able to let me check in for an extra day. Sheila is quite friendly and totally knows where and when to explore the island of Kaua'i. Her place is in a nice neighborhood and the room was perfect for my needs. The breakfast menu offered three choices of cereal, oatmeal flakes, choices of bread and bagels, fresh-cut local fruits, an assortment of hot teas, coffee and orange juice. All served in the kitchen and choices of seating indoors or out on the lanai. Both spots offered beautiful views over a flowering plant along the rail to the ocean which was about a mile from the location which was perched on the sloping landscape way above the the Pacific. The common area included a nicely appointed couch, a couple of chairs and table, a nice assortment of sightseeing brochures, a nice dining room table well-appointed with placemats, all right in front of the large window facing the ocean. The sleep number bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water even with the other guests who were very interesting and from all over the world. There is ample parking along the driveway and if you arrive at night, you will be greeted by automatic outdoor lighting to help you find your way to the exterior staircase. All in all, this is a very nice place to stay during a holiday on the island of Kauai!
There was some miscommunication on when we'd arrive and Sheila left a packet for us as we arrived well after bed time. The accommodations were as described and the breakfast was good - fresh fruit every day. While we didn't spend much time in Kalaheo proper, it was very centrally located and a good base from which to explore the entire island.
Sheila was great and provided us with no shortage of activities/places to explore.

'Because of my study of Hawaiian culture, native botany and archaeology, and my passion for outdoor activities, I am here to offer unique tips on aspects of Kauai that most visitors never get to experience.' 'I have lived on Kauai since 1992 and in Hawaii since 1988. Essential to my integration to these beautiful islands, I studied about native plants, birds and conservation efforts. A degree at Kauai Community College allowed me to explore the Hawaiian culture, archaeology, Polynesian Voyaging and other useful courses to enhance my knowledge. I danced hula with Healani's Hula Halau and spent three years living in the upland forest of Koke'e in an Old 1930's Plantation Cabin. I became involved with Koke'e Museum and trained as an interpretive hike guide, and also tagged along with botanists, entomologists, mycologists, geologists and ornithologists to learn as much as I could about 'the mountain'. I have hiked all the trails in the Waimea Canyon and Koke'e State Park areas, as well as throughout the island. I am an amateur windsurfer, certified scuba diver, Na Pali coast and river kayaker and all-around beach lover. I would be delighted to share with you my personal knowledge of the best, safest, and most stunning beaches on Kauai, and the activities that are the most fun!
