We had a great experience in Kapaa staying at Laura's place. Thanks for welcoming us into your home!
The apartment was great! We rented a car at the airport, which we highly recommend, and then drove the very short distance to Kapaa. From there, we used (website hidden) maps on our phones and found our way to Laura's, weaving our way down a quiet road filled with beautiful roosters.
Laura was very friendly, and was available to help us whenever we needed. By our third week of travel, we were a little weary, so it made a huge difference to our stay to have a host who was so kind.
Kapaa was about a 15-20 minute drive. There are lots of grocery stores, and some restaurants, food trucks, and a couple beaches. We would recommend bringing a laptop computer to watch movies on in the evening.
I would recommend this apartment for a couple, as the master bedroom was very comfortable. As two friends, my friend took the master bed and loved it, and I was on the pullout couch, which was not as comfortable. A pretty standard pullout sofa bed, though.
The apartment has a great cottage vibe. We felt like we were out in the middle of a rainforest. There were lovely avocados on the tree outside, and there were other fruit trees as well. Absolutely gorgeous spot!
It's an easy drive all the way around the island. We had no trouble making it up north, down south, and even all the way around to the scenic drive up to Waimea Canyon. Everything felt very accessible from this spot! We highly recommend Tunnels Beach for snorkelling, and surf lessons at Kauai Surf School.
Laura's place was great! It is an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful island of Kauai. We enjoyed the peaceful setting and it is every bit as nice as the photos show. In fact, the rooms are larger and more spacious than we expected.
Highly recommend staying with Laura if you want the ultimate Hawaiian vacation.
Very nice located, beautiful and clean appartement! Everything better than we expected!
The location is also very good located to explore the island-but you need a car!
Thanks a lot!
Echoing all the previous reviews, Laura's place was absolutely wonderful - clean, spacious, and very well located. The kitchen is fully equipped and the scenery is just breathtaking. Laura has many fruits growing in her yard and she often leaves some for guests - we got to try the bananas and avocados. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay on Kauai at such a great price.
We had a great stay with Laura in upcountry Kauai. The cottage is clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. We loved the property and neighborhood - very lush and green, quiet, and isolated yet still in Kapa'a. Thank you!
Our stay with Laura was really wonderful. Everything was as described. Very spacious, quiet and private. The back yard was over an acre, and was brimming with flowers, tropical plants, and fruit trees. We were visited daily by a variety of birds. Always fun to watch and listen to.
While it's only about 10 minutes or so from Kapa'a (which is a neat little town, BTW), you'll feel as though you're in your own personal piece of paradise! All-in-all we felt we had a much better experience than if we had stayed in a hotel, for a lot less money. This was a true bargain.
This was the perfect central location for a week in Kauai. The town of Kapa'a has everything you could want including two natural food stores (email hidden) serving organic fresh cold pressed juices every day. Laura's house is located upcountry in the most spectacular area. A walk around the neighborhood towards the mountains confirmed that it is paradise indeed.
I recommend that you experience Laura's massage. Her studio is right at the house. My friend received the traditional Hawaiian lomi lomi and I received the deep tissue. She is an amazing massage therapist. Thank you so much, Laura.
Since I went with a friend we needed two beds to sleep in. Our experience was that the sleeper sofa was not a very comfortable option. Laura gave us a foam fold up futon instead which met our needs. Otherwise the efficiency apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed to make it a perfect experience. I would stay there next time I visit Kauai.
WOW, all I can say is it was what I hoped for and more. Some people's reviews said it was a bit of a drive to the beaches, my group LOVED that because we always didn't do a beach and it was nice to come home to a real home. Laura the host was lovely and so kind. We didn't see her much but I'm sure we would have if we needed too because she answered all questions and inquiries via txt. right away. There is nothing like going out on an adventure, eating freshly pick fruit from her yard then driving on, viewing waterfalls from a far from her driveway...REALLY???...I will return. Spiritually touched!!!...THANK YOU LAURA!!!...until next time...
This was mine and my husband's first time using Air BnB and we were not disappointed. Laura's place is spacious, comfortable and well maintained - much bigger than what we would have had at any of the hotels for about half the cost.
If you book this place (which you should), I would recommend arriving in daylight. It was dark by the time we got our hire car and although Laura gives clear directions, its a bit tricky to navigate for the first time in the dark.
Great place on a beautiful island!
This was a spacious, well equipped,clean rental. It was far enough away from Kapaa so you didn't feel you were staying in town, but close enough to everything on Kauai, to make it a central jumping off spot. Jack
