Until then, mahalo for looking us up and a hui ho! Michelle & Tony
To be respectful of our quiet neighborhood and not smoke cigarettes.
Michelle and Tony introduced themselves shortly after we arrived and let us know to call on them for anything we needed. The cottage is just as it is pictured, private, and on the other side of the big mango tree from their home. There were sweet cherry tomatoes from their tomato patch on the outside table, along with two ripening avocados from their tree. They helped us and suggested where to go and what to do for anything we needed. As they say in NZ, they were "Sweet-As!" Being in the Islands is more than saying "Aloha" and "Mahalo." Michelle and Tony portray that well.
FANTASTIC FANTASTIC FANTASTIC!! I can't say it enough - we LOVED staying here. Michelle is the sweetest most helpful person we encountered our whole trip. Gave us great tips and notes on the area. The home had EVERYTHING you could possibly think of that you would need - I'm not kidding, EVERYTHING! Beautiful location... I can not say enough good things about this place.. stay here!
This was our first experience with an AirBnB and Michelle & Tony set the bar high for other hosts. The house was as described - centrally located on the island but not in a town, clean, well stocked (they even had cinnamon in the cabinet), and up to date when we arrived. Both Michelle & Tony went our of their way to accommodate our needs and make our stay enjoyable. Though the cottage was on the back corner of their property, we felt like we were in a totally independent facility. The neighborhood was peaceful, quiet, and dark enough at night to enjoy amazing stars when skies were clear. Avocado, papaya, lychee and guava trees as well as flowers in the yard added to the tropical atmosphere. Throughout the island, chickens and roosters are prevalent, running free and crowing everywhere. There were a few on properties near the cottage but we soon got used to the sound and it added to the charm of the area.
On arriving, Michelle showed us a rack in the house filled with information that would help a local tourist. She then answered questions about the sites and area from her own experiences.
The house also had a guest book where renters left information about their excursions during their visits giving personal insights on various venues' good and bad points. This helped us fine tune our plans during our visit.
We would highly recommend the cottage and especially the hosts to anyone looking for a rental in the Kapa'a area.
We had a great time staying in Michelle and Tony's cottage. The best thing definitely was the equipment: All kitchen stuff there, beach towels provided, tourist guide books, grill, bogeyboards to borrow, ... The hosts were warm, welcoming and helpful when it comes to activity advisory. Would recommend this place to everybody.
Un super accueil de la part de Michelle et Tony qui nous ont vite permis de nous sentir à la maison!
Le cottage est parfait: privatif, propre, bien équipé et confortable. Nous y sommes resté 1 semaine mais c'est passé trop vite! L'emplacement est très bien pour découvrir l'île de Kauai, et la petite ville de Kappaa très sympa.
Nous conseillons vraiment ce logement qui est parfait pour un couple qui aime le calme et être entouré de la nature tout en étant proche de toutes les commodités!
Merci à nos hôtes!
This is a really comfortable and well equipped cottage. Totally self contained and private. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals for ourselves. It is in a residential area and is very quiet. The drive is a bit long to and from town (Kapaa) but the location on the Island is perfect for exploring the North Coast and Wialua River.
Tony and Michelle's cottage was just want we expected. Warm muffins and a lot of questions were answered by them to get us in tune with what the island had to offer. The cottage was just the right size for the two of us. Supping with Tony was very nice and he was very patient with us. Use of barbeque was helpful as we love to cook at home when we can. Beach gear available was very welcome. Yes the roosters do like to cock a doodle doo, but you get used to is. (ear plugs did help). We loved the quiet of the neighborhood once back from the beaches. Thanks Tony & Michelle, we will recommend your place for other travelers!!

About the Host, Michelle & Tony
What can we say about living in paradise? It's just a wonderful, gorgeous, funfilled way of life that we SO enjoy and bringing up our daughter here is just an added blessing. We've been living on Kauai since 1998, and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. We built our home and cottage to share with our family and friends and hope you can experience our Kauai and share its many blessings.
