Kakalina's b&b was a unique experience as this was our first time at b&b. Kathy is very professional & personal both at the same time. The studio we stayed at is clean, quite yet close to everything, and equipped with cooking utensiles. It has firm matteress, tv with cable, books to read, lounging furniture & garden to roam in.

We have just returned from a 12 night stay at the Kakalina B&B and would definitely recommend it. Our accommodation was extremely comfortable and clean with everything we could possibly need. In addition to everything listed on the website, Kathy was able to provide a blender for my 'Green Breakfast Smoothie' and several other items during our stay including a... More

This is a 5 star B&B because it was like staying at a friend's place when they were not home. Being up in the hills away from the congestion of the beach area was very restful but still close to any activity. The cool breeze, clean air and peaceful nights were perfect. The B&B is clean, the beds comfortable and... More

We stayed at Kakalina's for the first leg of our stay on Kauai, wanting to experience both sides of the island. What a great place to use as a base for our exploring. It was nice being away from the busy traffic of Kapa'a and able to enjoy the sunrise every morning coming up over the hillsides...ocean on a clear... More

A tropical paradise: Beautiful, relaxing and full of wonderful experiences. Back home we dearly miss watching the sunrise over the ocean, savouring on fresh fruits, on juices and fresh bakery for breakfast in our “home away from home”: Hale ' Kolu. We especially enjoyed a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedroom, including an ample wardrobe space, and tasteful selection of furniture.... More

Kathy was an amazing host with an equally amazing property. Tropical gardens and birds of every sort were all around. We hiked, kayaked and beached every day, but we just could have stayed at Kakalina's all day also. Fresh juice and fresh fruit every day. We were central to everything and out of the resort bubble. Why someone would stay... More

We had a very long flight to Kauai due to strong headwinds which got us to our final destination close to four hours later than expected. The directions given were perfect even though navigating at night can be stressful as the roads do not have many street lights. We did arrive to our suite and immediately felt at home. I... More

Beautiful, pleasant, relaxing, in a tropical paradise. Our room had wonderful screened in lanai, surrounded by tropical plants, and flowers, but the elevation is high enough in the hills you can see all the way to the ocean, and a nice breeze. We stayed here 6 years ago and always wanted to come back. The only reason I did not... More

My stay at Kakalina's was everything and more than I could have hoped for. I wanted to experience the beauty and essence of Kauai without the resort factor and my stay at Kakalina's exceeded that. The charm, style and peace gave the impression of truly residing on Kauai. The room was spotless, had every amenity I could possibly desire and... More

Kakalina's is truely a one in a million Bed & Breakfast. Open the shuttered windows in the morning to smell the fragrances of her tropical flowers is fantastic. The suite has everything any tourist, anywhere could want or need.... and then there is the fruit and the home made muffins. This is the place dreams are made of and Kathy... More
