We stayed at two apartments - Gardenia and Banana Patch. Gardenia is in the main house. Banana Patch (along with other units) is in a different property - a few minutes drive. Both houses have quite steep driveways - might be a bit difficult for inexperienced drivers, but you get used to it fast. Both apartments are really nice -... More

The house is located in the woods, off the beaten track but within reasonable driving distance of Lihue and Waimea. Very close to Koloa Town and Poipu Beach (really nice for the kids). We stayed in the Gardenia Room, with the view of a huge, blossoming tulip tree from our bedroom and on a lush backyard on the other side... More

A quiet tucked away cottage up in the hills in Kaua'i was exactly what we needed to start our 2 week trip to Hawaii. it was comfortable and felt like home immediately. Kaua'i is a small island so getting around was not an issue. This place had a fully equipped kitchen plus excellent WiFi. There were a family of wild... More

It didn't matter that we spent 14 hours getting to Kauai; once we got to Hale Kua we were "home." What a perfect place; our well-equipped condo had everything we needed including a washer and dryer; it overlooked lush gardens and its location was private and provided cool breezes. It was an ideal base for exploring Hanappepe, Waimea Canyon, Poipu... More

Bill and Cathy went out of their way in every occasion while helping us during our stay. We felt at home during our time in this lovely, friendly and gorgeous home. We will definitely stop by again on our next trip to Kauai! And the muffins are delicious!

This is one of the most relaxing and magical places we have stayed in for the past 15 years of travelling. Waking up to the sound of local wild life and being surrounded by an amazing flora is good for the senses and stays with you long after leaving this little heaven on Kauai. We stayed in the Banana Patch,... More

We just returned after spending eight nights in the Gardenia Room ... and wish we were still there, basking in the serene beauty of Kauai. Cathy and Bill (with the able assistance of their dog, Honey, and their cats) were the perfect hosts, and Hale Kua was a splendid place to stay. This little bit of heaven is located off... More

We spent 3 weeks in "The Cottage" from July 12 - August 2, and it was great. We do not enjoy the traditional "tourist" locations, so this peaceful, lovely spot was right up our alley. Cathy and Bill were so welcoming and had great suggestions on where to go. We had beautiful views from the lanai, sunsets and rainbows galore.... More

great choice for the independent traveler who is looking for something other than a timeshare/condo or resort. great location (off the beaten path but in close proximity to places) on the south shore. spacious and great amenities. comfortable, peaceful and relaxing setting.
