My family had an incredible time at Giselle and Richards' home in Kauai, Hawaii to celebrate my birthday. We were graciously met by Richard and had a bottle of wine and coffee waiting for our arrival. Their lovely home is as beautifully pictured but the atmosphere was even more desirable. You felt very welcomed by the true warmth of the Hawaiian spirit. The touches of colors were vibrant, the house was clean and comfortable. You felt that you had made a good decision in selecting this home. Every morning was spent sipping wonderful coffee on the front balcony and watching the sun rise. At night, you could watch the moon rise and view the stars. It was such a pleasure to crawl into the comfortable bed at night to get ready for the following day. Giselle was gracious in baking me a cake for my birthday that included a wonderful syrup to be poured on top. Yum !!! Yes...all of us had a memorable celebration!!! I have never used airbnb before and this was a great introduction to what they can offer.
We could not have picked a better place. It truly was a peaceful, tropical retreat. Our mornings began sitting on the large, and comfortable porch, drinking coffee and watching the sunrise. Giselle and Richard are wonderful hosts, helpful and friendly, there was nothing that we could have wanted. The house was well stocked with everything you need for the beach, beach towels, beach mats, coolers, and snorkel gear. The place was about 5 minutes from multiple great beaches, and restaurants.
Tip for the island:
- A few of our favorite beaches were down dirt roads, with lots of pot holes, so we would recommend to rent a jeep for your stay here.
Giselle is an amazing host. She and her husband greeted my family and I as we arrived, showed us around the house, and even provided some local coffee that her and her husband roasted. They recommended a few places on the island that were their favorites or that would meet our needs for the week.
The house is exactly as described in the listing. It easily accommodated 5 people and was supplied with everything. A few days into our trip we started to run out of toilet paper and without needing to contact her, Giselle brought some! I do not know how she knew but it just shows how she cares enough to be on top of everything. The house is in a quiet part of the island with easy access to the freeway. It felt like we were living on the island and was much nicer than staying in a hotel room for a week.
High points: Kitchen/living room area is spacious. Free wifi. Beds are large and can fit 2 people easily. The lanai! It was probably one of the best parts of the house. It was comfortable enough to sit outside, you can watch the sunrise and sunset, and at night the stars are super clear. Awesome, awesome awesome.
Low points: Snorkel gear is old and not that fantastic, but it does allow you to see underwater and comes with the house. The roosters, but really they are everywhere and it's not really Giselle's fault. Be prepared to wake up early though!
I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay and feel like they live on the island. Do not hesitate to book now!

Giselle was the most wonderful host!
Excellent communication leading up to the stay which made me feel very comfortable and the place was just amazing!
We were treated to amazing coffee and breakfast - I would highly recommend Giselle's lovely house and hope to be back again for another accommodating stay.
We had the most lovely stay in Giselle's house. Peaceful, very well equipped, lovely coffee, wine and local produce. We couldn't have been happier. Giselle kindly helped us plan our days on the island and made us a wonderful breakfast on our last morning. Thanks for all the beach stuff too! Umbrella, snorkels etc were fantastic!! :-) we'll be back one day I hope!
Giselle was such a perfect host. Our plane was delayed so she waited for us with homemade vegetarian soup. The place is gorgeous. It looks even nicer than in the photos. On the last day, Giselle and her husband brought us breakfast that we enjoyed on the sunny deck. Overall amazing experience. Totally felt like locals!
I cannot say enough about what a spectacular space this was. The location is so private and wild, the house was beautiful and Giselle was amazingly welcoming. I would recommend this location to anyone staying on Kauai. My only recommendation is - bring friends!!! The hostess even provided beach towels, boogie boards and shopping bags. Even better than expected!
We were 6 and we loved our stay at Giselle's. The house was really beautiful and welcoming. Rooms and beds were spacious and comfortable. The over-all equipment of the house was top notch and the deck was really peaceful with a great view.
Giselle gave us tons of tips about the island and she even cooked us a great breakfast! She was a wonderful host. We enjoyed Kauai a lot and it was also due to Giselle and Richard.
Thanks again from all of us!
La maison est située dans un quartier très calme et cependant proche de la plage et des commerces en voiture. L'emplacement est idéal pour visiter l'île.Giselle était présente pour notre installation dans les lieux. Elle a pensé à chaque détail pour que nous nous sentions accueillis: des fleurs dans chaque pièce, des fruits, du lait, du vin ... La maison est très belle, avec une terrasse abritée très agréable et une belle décoration de chaque pièce. C'est un lieu où on a plaisir à rester et où on se sent vite chez soi. L'équipement est optimum ( y compris serviettes de plage, body board et masques pour la mer). Enfin Giselle et son mari sont des hôtes charmants, très désireux de nous faire connaître les lieux. Ils nous ont conseillé les meilleurs plages, les meilleurs magasins... et Giselle nous a amené un matin un fabuleux petit déjeuner avec des muffins pommes cannelle dont nous attendons la recette! Nous avons adoré ce séjour et reviendrons chez Giselle si nous revenons à Kauai.
