About this listing
Private bathroom and bedroom in quiet neighborhood. Centrally located on Kauai for ease of travel to all parts of the island. We are a friendly couple who enjoy sharing space and meeting new people.
Centrally located on Kauai, our home is clean, quiet, beautiful and eco-friendly. We have a guest bedroom available to rent (11’x12’) with lovely queen bed and private adjacent bathroom with shower and tub. We love living here and hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
We are situated in a private setting with amazing views of Mt. Waialeale. From the guest room waterfalls can often be seen on the mountains. Your private bathroom is tiled (floor and shower) and has granite countertops. There is also an outdoor shower you are welcome to use (we describe that experience as a cross between a day at the spa and camping, as you look up at the bamboo gently swinging in the breeze). :)
Our home decor is minimalist for a peaceful feel of relaxed comfort. We are happy to give ideas about food, adventures, etc...or give you space to enjoy the island as you will.

Interaction with Guests
We enjoy interaction with guests as our schedules permit. However, we let guests decide the degree of interaction they are comfortable with. Whether you want a quiet stay with minimal interaction or you enjoy a wide variety of conversations, we are accommodating and comfortable sharing space either way.
It is peaceful and relaxing here in our neighborhood and we are tucked back off the road and have open spaces beyond our home for beautiful views.
Rental cars are necessary for Kauai as public transportation is minimal. Always check under the floor panels where the spare tire is for cockroach infestation (very common here).
Other Things to Note
Our goal is to provide you with exactly what you see in our pictures and description. Clean, comfortable, peaceful. No unpleasant surprises here :)
This property is non-smoking.
Please drive slowly and carefully in our neighborhood (small children playing).
Please be careful to wash beach sand off yourself before coming onto the Lanai or entering the house.
Please respect Hawaiian custom and remove all shoes before entering the house.
Quiet time is 10pm to 8am.
No mangos at the property please. Ava has severe allergy. Please enjoy them at the farmers market or at the beach, washing hands carefully before returning.
Before you leave the rental car place: Please check under the seats and especially under floor panel (where the spare tire is kept) for cockroach infestation. Some of the rental cars are infested and they can end up in your stuff and our home. Please request a different car if the one they give you is infested.
Please change your rental car lock setting so that it does not honk when you lock it, or lock it manually so the noise doesn't disturb the neighbors.
We couldn't have imagined better hosts. The room and bathroom were super clean (better than most hotels we've been in) and the kitchen was easy to navigate and also spotless. We were super impressed with what they offer, and their kindness and aloha spirit only made our trip all the more special. Everything was just as how they describe it in their listing on the site. The location is perfect if you want an anchoring spot to explore the island, and Brett and Ava are full of great advice and tips on where to go, what to do and especially where to eat! It was a great stay that made it even harder to leave the island. Mahalo!
Ava and Brett were great hosts and made us feel welcome in their home. The central location made it easy for us to get to our destinations and back along with some great tips from Ava & Brett. This helped in making our vacation perfect. Adding to this, the surroundings were serene and views from the room and patio were beautiful. We felt at home and free to go about the house and use the common area and equipment. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would love to be back sometime.
We had a lovely stay at Ava and Brett's. Their house was neat, clean, and they provided us with so many little bits and pieces that really enhanced our trip, such as insect repellent, snorkelling gear etc. We felt very at home in their house and really enjoyed their company during our stay.
We were made to feel very welcome by Brett and Ava in their comfortable, tidy and quiet home. Their profile description fits perfectly with what we experienced. The central location was ideal for exploring all parts of the island and convenient for shops and eateries. Excellent sight seeing advice was also provided.
we loved to stay at ava&brett's place. the room is so comfortable and everything is super clean. the view from the lanai is amazing and do not miss the outside shower... ava&brett are so nice persons and provided us with things to do on the island. we would definitly come back...
We loved staying with Ava and Brett! Their house was truly a home away from home for us. We really enjoyed talking with the couple after a long day of activity outside, and relaxing in their peaceful and quiet home. Ava and Brett are both genuinely nice, very funny, respectful, and helpful in offering suggestions of places to visit around the island.
The room and private bathroom are immaculate. The kitchen is a great space to prepare meals in, and the outdoor shower is wonderful to use after a day at the beach. The bathroom was stocked with organic versions of all of the things that can take up precious space in the suitcase: shampoo, conditioner and body wash.
We highly recommend this airbnb to anyone visiting Kauai!
La casa e la stanza sono esattamente come mostrate nell'annuncio e la pulizia è davvero impeccabile.
Ava e Brett sono stati molto ospitali e abbiamo apprezzato tutto del nostro soggiorno.
Il paesaggio circostante è splendido, in mezzo alla natura e molto tranquillo. Inoltre la posizione centrale all'isola permette di raggiungere comodamente nord e sud di Kauai.
Le regole della casa sono molto chiare e prevale il buon senso per cui non abbiamo avuto problemi a seguirle.
Grazie ancora dell'ospitalità, soggiorneremmo volentieri da voi nel caso ritornassimo a Kauai.
