Come Enjoy our Comfortable and Clean Hotel Style Studio with a Personal Hawaiian touch! Your attached studio includes a brand new kitchenette, luxurious queen size bed, sitting area, private patio, and private bath. Close to beaches and hiking trails!
Our home resides in the centrally located Eastside of Kauai and is settled in a quiet family friendly neighborhood. You'll feel secluded on our private 1.4 acre property full of lush tropical plants and large bamboo groves. Be sure to stop and admire the ever flowing Opaeka'a Falls on your way up to our neighborhood. We are a 10 minute drive to the beach or if you prefer the mountains just drive 5 minutes in the opposite direction to a beautiful freshwater river with incredible hiking trails.
Guests will enjoy the newly remodeled private studio (attached to our home) that includes a kitchenette, Queen bed, small sitting area, private entrance, private bath, and private outdoor patio space. In the kitchenette you will find a mini fridge, coffee maker, microwave, plates, bowls, utensils, and other basic but necessary items ones needs when away from home. Our queen bed with plush pillow top boasts of luxurious linens to keep you cozy and comfortable. The studio is attached to our home.
The studio is a very peaceful and quiet space with birds singing in the morning and views of lush tropical foliage outside your windows. Trade winds make sitting outside to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea very pleasant. We do get the occasional mosquito so if your someone they find tasty please pack bug spray.
While we do live in a very quiet neighborhood we highly recommend using your white noise application available on all android and apple devices. Most Hawaiian homes do not have air conditioning due to the high energy costs so sound through open windows can travel in between homes. Kauai is also full (if you haven't already noticed when you flew into Lihue Airport!) of feral chickens and roosters who are quite a noisy bunch. We have become accustomed to it, but many first time visitors are unaware and adjust better with the white noise application.
Guests will have access to their own private studio and bathroom with newly remodeled shower. The studio has a brand new kitchenette complete with mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. Guests can also enjoy spending time outdoors in their own private patio area. Only one car per couple please due to limited parking space. Laundry washing not provided. Please see the Welcome Book for laundering options in Kapaa town.

You cannot see our house from the road so it may be easy to miss. Please look for our house number 6978 on our mailbox. You enter our driveway at the top of the road and drive down. It is steep so please approach slowly.
Our long driveway is quite steep and curvy. The driveway is paved concrete. Please use caution when entering and exiting. If you are not comfortable driving under these conditions you may want to think about searching for different accommodations. If not-think of it as part of the adventure!
***UPDATE*** Many of our guests have reported enjoying the uniqueness of our driveway and the seclusion it gives us from the road. You do NOT need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Any 2 wheel drive will do! :)
It is recommended that you inform me of your arrival and departure times. Check-in at the studio is at 3 PM and check-out is at 10 AM.
Our home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. However, due to the nature of Hawaii homes not having air conditioning and year round open windows sound can travel between neighboring homes. Please consider using a white nose application on your phone or using earplugs if this is something that concerns you.
Chickens roam wild all over the Hawaiian islands and can be a noisy bunch so pack earplugs just in case.
We have friendly dog who enjoys playing outside but will not enter your private space.

My name is Yvette and I am originally from Florida. My husband and I moved to Kauai in 2011 after I received a job offer. We planned to be here for only one year but as you can see we never left! I love all Kauai has to offer. The beaches, the hiking, the close community, farmers markets, freshwater rivers... I could go on and on! I also enjoy doing projects around the house, working in the yard, and spending time together with our two sons and our dog.
As hosts we are warm, accommodating, and enjoy sharing our knowledge of the island. We look forward to meeting you.
Yvette and Matt
