“Fabulous views in the wilds of the Kauai north shore”
Reviewed 30 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

The views from the living room and lanai are amazing. The lush mountains and gardens below make you feel like you are in a jungle paradise. This was a fantastic place to spend our week on Kauai with convenient access to Ke'e, Tunnels and Lumahai Beach. The furnishings and layout of the house are tastefully done. It was great to have snorkeling gear, beach towels, beach chairs and hats provided. We loved the hats so much we went and bought a pair for ourselves. It is a comfortable home-base for days of adventuring and relaxation.

However, you need to be prepared that you are in a "jungle" paradise on Kauai. Ants are a constant problem in the kitchen. The screens on the windows and doors have enough gaps that you will have dozens of flying insects on the ceilings and walls if you have the lights on in the house at night. Of course, if you step out on the lanai you will need to apply insect repellent and have mosquito coils burning to enjoy dinner and not become dinner. The ubiquitous Kauai roosters are present and are happy to announce that it is 2am and all is well. This is all part of the expected Kauai experience.

Some of the unexpected issues were mildly annoying. First, the advertised "queen" bed is a double with an overly soft pillow-top that attempts to mask a very tired mattress. Second, there were a few amenities that were missing. The BBQ is the way you will want to prepare most of your meals. Unfortunately, there are no tools or anything with which to clean the grill. The hair dryer is also non-functional, so bring your own it you need one. Finally, the neighbors across the road have a large number of hunting dogs (kept in rather inhumane circumstances) that have a wild barking fest from about 8:00 to 8:30pm every night. Fortunately, they rarely bark later than about 9pm.

Overall, would we stay here again? Yes! It is a beautiful setting and great location for doing what we love to do on the north shore of Kauai.
