Our Hanapepe Hideaway is on the sunny, dry Westside of Kauai. Our BnB is lovely and spacious. It is a complete and private suite in the front portion of our large house. We live in the back portion of the house which is completely blocked and locked off. There are no shared areas. There is a private entrance for the BnB only. The suite has a covered front porch, a large living room and kitchen, a bathroom and bedroom. These delightful and comfortable accommodations are in a relaxing, convenient and very quiet neighborhood in the hills above Hanapepe town. Hanapepe is a quaint town known for its 16 local art galleries...a real artists' community. Our charming 1 bedroom has a NEW King Size pillowtop mattress bed and a full bath with a large kitchen & living room with a pool table and a large screen TV. We also have WIFI. There is a lovely covered and furnished front lanai all hidden behind a completely fenced and gated property. Parking is right outside the locked gate. Beach towels and toys are available including snorkel equipment, boogie boards and chairs. These attractive and spacious quarters are near beaches, Waimea Canyon and hiking galore. Coffee and Tea are provided and can be enjoyed along with all your other meals in your private and homey, spacious and pleasant, safe and well situated homestay waiting for you on Kauai.
A 5 minute drive from our BnB is Salt Pond, one of Kauai’s most popular swimming beaches and Port Allen, where many of the Napali Boat trips leave from. The well-liked Friday night Hanapepe Art Walk is just down the hill from us. This weekly celebration has the 16 local art galleries open in the evening from 6-9pm with local food, wine, music and festivities. Polihale State Beach Park is on our side of the island along with Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park which has the most extensive and accessible day hiking and camping on island. Hanapepe is also close to the Kauai Coffee Plantation with its visitor center and self-guided tour and Pakala’s, a popular surf spot. A local farmer’s market happens every Thursday in the Hanapepe town park. Hanapepe is near a variety of restaurants, a large grocery store, banks and laundromat. We are a 25 minute picturesque drive to the world famous south shore’s Poipu beaches and a 40 minute scenic drive to Lihue, our county seat, airport and main town.

Cliff and Candy were gracious hosts, my wife and I enjoyed our stay in the bnb. After introducing herself, Candy provided valuable advice on how to plan our trip. Kalapaki beach was a gem of a discovery, thanks to her. The place is located at the south shore, with plenty of sunshine and good access to Waimea canyon to the west as well as the beaches in the east, and north shores. It is also pretty close to the Salt pond beach. We loved the privacy this place afforded us, and enjoyed quiet evenings at the lanai. The grill was definitely a plus, since there are not many options for eating out. The hosts also provided beach chairs, snorkel masks, and boogie boards. Overall a very positive experience, and I highly recommend their place.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Candy and Cliff's place for four nights. It was the PERFECT launching pad for our several adventure days of hiking up in waimea and snorkeling/enjoying the beach around salt pond and poipu. I seriously couldn't imagine trying to make that trip in a day from the north shore. Fantastic kitchen, large open space, there were a few bugs here and there (as expected with any island) but Cliff was super prompt to deal with it. The boogie boards, cooler and beach gear is also such a bonus and really fantastic. Would happily stay here again and highly recommend to any couple and or friends. This makes for a third airbnb experience that couldn't have gone any better- definitely a perfect choice for you Kauai vacation :)
Thanks much to Candy and Cliff for a fantastic, though way too short, trip to Kauai. Their place had everything we could have needed, was very spacious and comfy, close enough to Waimea for hiking and also beaches on South shore. It was a great choice for us and thoroughly happy in Hanapepe; nice neighborhood and can walk to town. Mar 2014
Hanapepe Hideaway fulfilled our expectations best: much room, quiet neighborhood, lovely hosts and clean. We found what we searched for at our vacation on Kauai. Thanks a lot to Candy and Cliff.
For the price and location, it was a good place to stay. Quiet neighborhood and close to lots of activities.
We found Candy and Cliff's place to be a nice home away from home. It's got such a nice vibe that went really well with our Kauai experience. Cliff and Candy were very available when we had questions. Lovely home and hosts.
I spent 3 days by Candy and Cliff's house but it has been definitely not enough !!
What a wonderful place so peaceful cosy and clean. Everything is thought for having a great stay.
We can feel that Candy and Cliff are extremely kind and generous.
The price is cheap regarding the quality and all what offer this lodgment. Thanks a lot for this !
I hope to come back again another time.
I really appreciate my stay here.
This is a great place to stay!
It's like having your own house, big living, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
breakfast for a few days in advance is no problem, just put the croissants in the toaster and they're good as fresh.
We enjoyed our stay in Kauai at Cliff and Candy's place. The apartment was large, with many amenities, included snorkeling gear, boogie boards, beach towels and chairs, coolers, a Keurig coffee machine, a small pool table with a ping pong topper, and guidebooks and maps. There were also some condiments in the fridge, which was helpful so we didn't have to buy everything we needed. We appreciated Cliff and Candy's suggestions on beaches and activities. They have some pets, including some pet birds, and it was nice to have the animals around (the animals don't come in the guest space). I especially enjoyed listening to the birds chirping in their outdoor cage.
We really enjoyed our visit to Kauai and we would not have been able to stay as long as we wanted at an expensive resort so we are very thankful for Cliff and Candy's place. The apartment/house is close to Wiamea Canyon, Salt Pond Beach (our favorite) and all the attractions at Poipu and Port Allen. It was very convenient, well appointed and spacious. They had ice chests, snorkeling equipment, guide books and beach towels (all of which we used) and which enhanced our visit. They also kept us well supplied with pastries and fresh fruit.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
