At Your Service Kauai Style - LIHUE

House - Private room · Elima Street, Lihue, HI 96766, United States

The Space

Most centrally located accommodation on the fabulous island of Kauai. Our home is only about a mile from the airport. Enjoy a pleasant stay in a single wall construction home built in 1952 in a quiet neighborhood. The home is located conveniently two blocks from the public bus stop. Many guests use this location as there base as they explore the island. The home has a large shared living room and a big, complete kitchen with everything you need (besides the food) to make any meal. But there are many restaurants close by if you choose to eat out. There is a bar-b-q grill available. Your room has a king size bed (which takes up most of the room) and plenty ventilation. The bathroom is shared. The yard has banana trees and avocados as well as other fruit trees. A tranquil koi fish pond located outside your window with a lovely trickling sound 24/7 that will lull you to sleep. You will also hear the water in my aquaponics system.

I'd like to mention, if you have never been to the tropics before, do your homework! Everyone loves Hawaii because it is warm with a constant, slight breeze, waterfalls, amazing scenery of majestic mountains and beaches that takes your breath away. The way of life here is slower (our fastest speed limit is 50mph and we only have one main road). People greet each other with genuine salutations. BUT, there are things that are NOT so pleasant that come with this tranquility. One thing is bugs. No matter how diligent we are to get rid of them, they still win. When you see them, it does not mean that someone is dirty. It's just a part of life in the tropics! Also in the tropics, things are always blooming and growing. We can plant things all year round. This is the perfect climate for gardening. But it is also the perfect climate for molds to grow. This is another battle we have. Being prepared and informed is the best way to enjoy your destination. So come and embrace our saying, "hang loose"!

As I mentioned, there is an Aquaponics System in the backyard. There are tilapia fish of all ages in four 300 gallon tanks and large grow beds. Please don't touch knobs, plants, etc. mahalo.

Usually check-in time is after 3 and check-out time is 12 noon. But if you need to leave your luggage here before check-in or after check-out, no problem. We can work things out. Just let me know what you need.

If you are in need of storage while you hike you are welcome to leave items at our home for an additional $5 a day. We can discuss what and where later.

There is a guest book on the kitchen table. Please feel free to sign it!

If you request to stay here and I accept, please make sure you read the house manual (which only shows up after request is accepted) It will give you more details and check-in instructions. Thank you.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Comfortable bed, close to the airport and Lihue town.

    April 2014
  • My cousin Muriel and I went on a trip to Hawaii on March for 2 weeks to discover Oahu and Kauai isles.

    March 2014
  • We only stayed one night, the night we flew into Lihue, however the house was clean and quiet. The room was nice and comfortable and we had a great night of sleep after a long day of flying. Carrie communicated well and we had a pleasant experience. We would recommend "At Your Service Kauai" and would stay there again!

    March 2014
  • At Carrie's place you feel home as soon as you open the door to your room. We had a very lovely Welcome and enjoyed the stay there! The place is perfect situated and in the house, there's nothing missing: full equipmemt kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.. Thanks a lot Carrie!

  • Carrie has a comfortable house with an enormous kitchen. Me and my friend fully enjoyed staying in Lihue and recommend Carrie's rooms to anyone traveling on Kauai. Carrie is an incredibly nice host and showed us her aquaponics system in her back yard. She is a hard working entrepreneur and very busy. She provides maps of their surrounding area , which is central to Kaui. For those without a car the bus stop is less than a ten minute walk away. I strongly suggest stopping at Sweet Marie's on your way to the bus stop. Lihue isn't far from popular tourist destinations but definitely count on taking day trips if you want a more comprehensive view of the Island. Carrie's house has all the amenities; bathroom, kitchen, living room with TV, and comfortable bedrooms. Great place!

  • I had such a wonderful time staying at Carrie's AirBnB! This was my first AirBnB experience and I was travelling alone so I was a little nervous about it, but Carrie made everything so easy and comfortable. Carrie's place is so homely and it makes a wonderful base for exploring the beautiful island of Kauai! It is almost necessary to hire a car when your on the island, and if you do this then staying in Lihue is perfectly central! And coming home to Carrie's place each evening after exploring the island was the perfect way to finish the day. I stayed in the blue room, which has a super comfy king bed. You can hear the water trickling from Carrie's fishponds in the back garden, which I found relaxing and a nice sound to fall asleep to. There is a shared bathroom, which is kept clean and tidy, and a lovely large shared kitchen which I used everyday during my stay. Carrie even had a pile of ripe avocados from her garden that she put out for us to each, which were delicious! There is also a shared lounge room with a big TV. If I ever make it back to Kauai I would definitely stay here again! It was a truly wonderful experience, and an absolute pleasure to meet Carrie, who took the time to have a chat and share what she knew about Kauai. Mahalo, Carrie!

  • If you are lucky to get your hands on these rooms, consider your self blessed.
    Carrie's place is comfortable, clean and spacious.
    Most of all is close to the must see places of the island,
    Like the Wailua Falls and Wailua state park for kayaking and hiking or the Poipu Beaches for snorkeling.
    Now, if u like to eat and drink, the best raw local Ahi tuna is yards away at Fish Express. $2.50 drinks for breakfast at Eggbert's in the Kapaa Coconut Market Place with a delicious coconut syrup for your pancakes, and Pizzetta in Koloa is good for drinks and snacks.
    Carrie the boss of the house is awesome!!! Only yes, came out of her mouth. She helped in so many ways and she didn't have too.
    Have fun people

  • Comfortable older island home. Great bed and enjoyed the sound of the water from the garden. Carrie was a most gracious host.

    January 2014
  • We loved staying at Carrie's place, it is so warm and inviting, Carrie makes you feel at home, she even left us a welcome note :) She is great at communication and answers text messages very promptly.
    The house is a quick cab ride from the airport, very centrally located and it is easy to access restaurants and shops by walking.
    The house is beachy with a craftsman twist, with beautiful hutch in the living room and a big open kitchen. Lots of amenities for a great price- cheaper than any hotel!
    The room we stayed in was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed and very cute beach house decor. Loved it! (I am a VERY clean person and I was very happy with the cleanliness of the house, it was MUCH cleaner than both of the hostels we stayed at on the island- which we had to book out of necessity, as Carries wasn't available).
    We had the pleasure of meeting the very busy Carrie and she shared tips about where to eat and have coffee, she knows a lot about the area. She is great and we hope to stay at her sweet place on our next trip! Book in advance, it goes quickly!

I've been on Kauai since 1986 and can't imagine living anywhere else. I was born in Vermont and have lived many other places, but Kauai is definitely home. Everyday I feel grateful that God allows me to live on this incredible island. One of my many interests is aquaponic gardening, which I do here on my property. I have a unit that consists of two 4' x 16' grow beds and four three hundred gallon fish tanks. Come and see! I lead a very busy life and wear many hats. Driving a taxi and giving private island tours is one of my hats.
