Charming Hotel

Wonderful & Afforadable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and would highly recommend it to anyone. The place is beautiful- doors hand painted with bright, cheerful island images or scenes, a lush garden with gazebo seating. At night strings of white lights turn the garden into a wonderland. There are big koi fish in a pond that is both inside and outside of the office. I could not have dreamed of a better setting.

And that is not even the best part- the people who work there are wonderful! We thought it was a family run business because o how interact with each other. They have all lived on Kauai for years, and answer your questions with personal knowledge. They are such easy company it felt like a home while we stayed there.

The location is near the airport, restaurants, shops, and the highway running north or east is easy access from the hotel if you want to see more of the island. The rooms come with a refrigerator and microwave, plates and enough utensils that you can make yourself a snack or simple meal. There is a bay within walking distance where people paddle board and swim. Snorkel equipment, beach towels, DVDs and books are available in the office for guest use.

Charming, Friendly, Peaceful & Relaxing

I loved the friendly service, the peaceful surroundings and walking through the gardens and the koi ponds where I could sit and relax. I forgot I was in the middle of Lihue. I love that it is so close to the beach, & restaurants & shopping. Steve & his wonderful wife made sure we had everything we need to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They are sweet, & caring and attentive to our needs. Mahalo for the experience!
