The beach house was even more beautiful in person. We felt secluded in beautiful tropical paradise, regatdless of how close to everything we were. The only sound heard was the crashing waves. Yet the convience of location was the best. We only stayed 6 days, but were able to see the north and south sides of island with plenty of time to get back for dinner and relaxing at the house. It was so close and easy to get to all the adventures on the Island. We snorkeled, kayaked Wailua, hiked down to Pili beach, went to Hanalai and Aninni beach, surfed Poipu, went on a helicopter, saw the lighthouse, and enjoyed the Allerton gardens, and still had time to relax in the morning, and evening... Dinner outside was beautiful. If you can wake up early and stay up late , you will see the sunrise and moonrise on the horizon on the deck. I suggest checking the sun/moon rise time chart for Kapaa as the moonrise will can vary by a couple hours each night. But you will be able ti view at least one moonrise during your stay with out staying up til midnight. Its spectacular!!! There is a book in the family room cabinet titled Kauai trailblazers. If your into your own private adventure, this book will give you exact guidance as to how and where to find and explore parts of Kauai no tour guide will ever take you on... We hiked some hidden trail through dense trees and over lava rocks to an insane beach that no one was at and no tourist would ever find without this book. Find it and READ!! I only wish we had more time on the Island and that book prior to arriving. I highly recommend The Niulani home..It was perfect. Thank You Kauai Garden Properties for sharing your wonderful home with us...!!!

A lovely family holiday.
The house is quite lovely, lots of space, very quiet, nice kitchen for cooking in. We enjoyed being so close to the ocean although would like to have had a better path down to the beach. We found it a big overgrown. Kappaa is a nice small town, friendly people and decent shopping. Easy to travel north and south from this location. Our family enjoyed our stay and if\when we travel to Hawaii again we would certainly stay here. garden Island Properties were great to deal with.

Fantastic Home with Hawaiian Style in Great Location
It was a snap reserving this spacious home online, and the Garden Isle representatives responded to my inquiries immediately. Niulani Beachfront Home is very spacious and accommodated our group of six for gathering time and meals inside and out. The bedrooms and baths are comfortable, but the loft is not private. Out back is a great hangout spot with an ocean view. We even saw whales and the most beautiful rainbows right from the deck! This home's location is convenient. Only a few blocks to groceries and less than a mile to restaurants, shops and a walking path along the ocean. We much preferred staying here as opposed to a hotel or condo. Mahalo for an experience we will always cherish!
Las Vegas, NV
I'm born and raised on Kauai but now live in Las Vegas. This might be our "go to" beach house for our annual family trip. It's a great location, the house screams Hawaii and not to mention the ocean views. You can't really swim at the beach for it was great to wake up and go to sleep to. One of the coolest Kauai trips ever...and a lot had to do w/this house.
A dream come true
SAN DIEGO, CA
A dream come true
This property surpassed every expectation we had. We had family and friends staying with us during this visit. We can not say enough good things about the house and location. It's close to everything you may want or need. Its half way between the North and West sides of the island. Everyone loved their little hideaways. We used all the rooms on the property and all were happy as little clams. The path down to the beach could be cleared a bit more, but who cares when you have such a nice place to stay in. I will recommend this to all who will listen. The owners did an outstanding job in making us comfortable.
Perfect for a Family Celebration
This is a wonderful, well-maintained property! We rented the entire complex, our children and grandchildren staying in the cottage and bungalow. We older adults filled the main house, and other family members had accommodations within walking distance. The large, well equipped kitchen and open main space was perfect for a big birthday party. It was lovely being right on the ocean, and just a short walk to Baby Beach. Renting a kiddy wagon and bikes made getting around fun, and we could walk to get groceries. We chose Kapaa for this family reunion as it is a good take off point to go north or south for activities, so this location was great. However, it is a busy town, with lots of traffic. We ended our vacation on the much quieter and slow-paced south side at Poipu. Read more

Aloha! We are happy to hear you had an enjoyable stay at the Niulani Beachfront home. It is a perfect gathering for families! The location within easy walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants and more definitely make it a handy choice for the extended family; not to mention the oceanfront views. We look forward to having you back!
Cranberry Twp, PA
Home away from Home
We loved our stay at this property. In fact, we loved it so much that we booked it for another family trip next year!
The house was in great condition, clean, and in a perfect centralized location on the island. We were able to enjoy day trips to every area on the island from this Kapaa. Kapaa is the perfect location for whale watching in February, when we stayed. We would literally spend 30 minutes at dusk and dawn watching the whales break just by looking from the back deck!
The property can comfortably hold 10 and provide extra privacy for two couples with the Bungalo and cottage options.
The kitchen is absolutely amazing. We cooked at the house nearly every night. It has all of the essentials you will need. A tip...head to Costco on Day 1 of your trip to make the most out of home cooking options.
We only used the private beach one day out of our entire week. Somewhat surprising we didn't spend more time considering the convenience, but the island boasted too many beaches to try to stay isolated back at the house.
The backyard was private enough to enjoy a couple massage for my and my hubby one beautiful morning on our trip.
For those that desire an open atmosphere and inviting home for visiting with your house guests, this is the place for you! I believe it is an amazing value for your dollar.
The Niulani house was the perfect getaway for a group of old friends. The location is central to many of the sights on the island, and the nearby shopping center was convenient. Watching the sun rise in the morning from bed was a daily treat. The stovetop was a bit of a challenge to work with, but otherwise the kitchen had everything we needed. Having beach access right outside the door was ideal. I'm already planning my next trip... Read more

Mahalo nui for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with friends. We do agree that the location can't be beat!!
We look forward to having your back!!
Decent but with reservations
Great location but disappointed in beach access. Maybe put some stairs to water. Also, can't swim directly outside. Have to go 1/2 mile walk to swim. House was very nice but needs basic repairs that should be remedied by preventive maintenance on ongoing basis. Best part of house was view and ambiance. Worst part was getting bitten alive by all the insects all the time both outside and inside the home. Was expecting some bug issues, but not this bad. Rental agency should provide fumigator and options/advice on bug problem. Kapaa is busy town and getting from house onto the Main Street and through town or anywhere is difficult. Be aware main road is also under heavy construction and causes long long delays so plan to add 20-30 minutes extra to get places. Beach chairs and umbrella provided, but many were old rusted and falling apart. Again, this is maintenance problem, and should be replaced on regular basis. Limited amount of toiletries provided and was inadequate for time there. They should have reserves stored so that people don't have to purchase their own tissues, toilet paper, and soap. Overall nice but not wonderful. Rental manager was nice and receptive to issues when approached on them but, as i said before these should be anticipated and handled prior to being approached. By us. Rental agency should provide better maintenance and supplies to the rental and more info on issues addressed above. Maybe a book in each unit to assist in this. Read more

Mahalo for your review.
The beach at Niulani is limited; and more so dependent on the tides and weather conditions. Being in the tropics, we do have mosquitoes and do recommend checking to make sure slider doors are not left open at any time. Unfortunately sunset can be the worse time for mosquitoes to appear.
Road work has been completed, this was for the walking/bike bath created by the County which now allows you to ride a bike or walk from Kapa'a to Kealia to the north or Wailua to the south. The path is now directly on Niulani; giving one easy access to the eastern coastline. It is an awesome improvement but did require road work.
Beach chairs have been replaced.
Aloha from Kaua`i.
Great property right on the beach!
Rented Niulani for a week in april. The house is great! Very comfortable and very quiet! In Kapa'a so there is easy access to both the North and South sides of the island. Very close to two grocery stores. Hanalei and Poipu are short drives away and both offer great beaches. The house is clean and well appointed and maintained. The beach behind the house is like a lot of Hawaii in that there is coral and the beach is small at high tide. At low tide, there's plenty of room to spread out. It's in a residential area so beach use is lower than other parts of the island. Quiet and secluded. Kauai is a great island and this is a great house! Read more

Awsome location, beatiful house, spectacular view of ocean.
The service in renting the house was great, explained everything clearly. The home was more than I had expected, all the amenities were there and the view of the ocean was spectacular. The location of the house is off the main road and no traffic noise, great shopping and dinning in local area,(Kintros) is a must to eat at down the road.

We do appreciate you coming back year after year for your family get- togethers. Thanks for taking such good care of your "second home".

Mahalo JR! During humpback whale season which is coming very soon, you can watch them breaching from the lanai as well!! It is in an ideal location and on the beach!! aloha and mahalo!
We booked the entire unit (main, bungalow and beach home) for a 10 day stay with a group of friends. Setting up the arrangements with the owners was quick and easy - from arranging the contract, to submitting the deposit, to getting the final details, house codes, etc. No hassles at any point in the process.
When we arrived, we were very happy with our choice. The full unit easily accommodated our group (unlike most group trips where someone ends up with an inferior set-up, this time around everyone was very satisfied with their assigned room/unit). A nice big open kitchen with all of the necessary amenities (another rarity for group accommodations in my experience), spacious living and dining areas, and a good-sized deck looking out onto the water. 5 second walk from the lawn to the beach - it was perfect. Yes, there are definitely some rocky outcroppings in the water at that section of the beach, but reef shoes made it work, or else a short walk down the road and you're at baby beach. No issues.
Location overall was very convenient. Easy walking distance to groceries, shopping, restaurants, etc. Also a quick walk to a great oceanside walkway that goes on for quite a few miles.
Never did see the owners (access codes, keys, etc were all waiting for us when we got there, so we didn't run into any problems where we needed their help). Although there are neighbouring houses on both sides, we only saw one neighbour once in the 10 days we were there, and he seemed very friendly. All in all, we were happy we got to enjoy a great deal of privacy.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Kauai, especially if you are travelling with a large family or a group of friends. It was the one property that really stood out to us out of all of the property websites we visited, and it did not disappoint.
Stayed here with two other couples. Plenty of room. You can snorkel in the back during high tide. You also have enough beach to lay out there also. Great location.
We were disappointed
We were disappointed. The house in general and bathrooms in particular wasn't as clean as we expected. We actually had a cockroach in a bed. The beach was tiny compared to what the pictures on the internet showed. The stairs and gate to the beach that were shown were gone completely and it was awkward to get down there.
All-in-all the photos online must be about 10 years out of date and set our expectations too high. Read more

Unfortunately you didn't let us know the cleanliness was not up to your standards until after you left, as we would have immediately sent housekeeping in to address your concerns.
Beautiful Home in a great Location!
We had an excellent trip to Kauai and the beach home made it even better. Everything that we needed was provided for our week stay (even laudry soap). Everything in the home was in good repair and the master bathroom shower was wonderful. The beach is beautiful but does have large rocks (possibly lava rocks) blocking the entrance to the water (it is still possible to enter the water as they are flat).
Other guests had mentioned in the review that a fence between the house and the neighbors would be nice. I agree with this as there is little space between the houses and the bedroom window is very close to the neighbors back yard that they use very frequently. Not a big deal, but it would make it a little nicer.
If you are going to use the loft as a bedroom for someone other then a child, I would recommend bringing an extension cord to charge your phone. I always charge mine at night and there was only an outlet in the very corner, no where near the bed ( I like to use it while it charges). Read more

Mahalo for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Niulani Beachfront Home. We now have areca palms growing along the boundaries and with the sound of the ocean as a constant, we do hope that will maintain privacy to the second bedroom. (The master bedroom faces the ocean; making it wonderful to wake up to!) We do hope you will be back to enjoy our island again!
Perfect Paradise Kauai.. as always!!
We've been going to Hawaii for ever and are always happy with the service we receive, this property was no exception to that. Fantastic & easy bookings.
The home is so equipped there is everything and every appliance youll need and more. Such a great location, groceries, coffeeshop , Longs Drugstore all within walking distance, along with Shopping and dinning. Perfect location. The home is great for a family lots of space and a ocean in the back yard. The master suite is so amazing, the en suite (massive) is breathtaking with a large shower with 2 showerheads all overlooking the ocean ... Amazing. We will be back and so will the rest of our families.

Victoria, BC Canada
8 of us including three generations rented the entire property over Christmas and New Year. It was perfect! What you see in the photos is what you get: the house is roomy, the kitchen has everything you need and the water is right there to watch sunrises, whales and kayakers. Beds are comfortable. Furniture funky but very comfortable for a large group. It is close enough to town that we walked everywhere - for coffee, lunch, groceries and souvenirs. There are water shoes, coolers, lots of beach towels and chairs for outtrips. Only thing missing was boogie boards that can be rented around the corner. One small problem with the internet access that management looked into and fixed immediately. I would definitely recommend this house to families, big and small. Would come back again!! Mahalo!

The Niulani was amazing. It was everything we were expecting and more. We rented the entire property and all of the accomodations were nicely furnished and well maintained. Although the beach was not for swimming, there was enough sand to sit and enjoy the water and view. We came home with a bounty of beautiful seashells collected on the beach. The location was ideal as it was pretty central for trips north and south. I'm sure we will be back! Read more

Beautiful Rental Super Convenient to Everything!!!
We really enjoyed our week at the Niulani Beachfront Home! Although it was a bit on the pricey side... It's very true that you get what you pay for! The house was very clean and well equipped with everything that we needed for our stay. The location is very close to all of the restaurants in Kapaa... just a street or two away. It is however, far enough off of the main street so there was no traffic noise. We never heard the neighbors either. It's a very quiet community. The house had a very nice cross-breeze when the windows were open and it was completely wonderful to fall asleep to the sound of the waves at night. This home is a truly Beachfront home, with only a hedge row between you and the ocean for privacy. We never saw another person (other than a paddle boarder) near the beach in front of the house. The beach is not a good swimming beach as the shoreline is rocky. The rocks are not visible at high tide. There is approximately 15 feet of sand (between the hedges and the rocks) to enjoy which was plenty for us! There is a small sandy incline that you need go up/down to get to the shore. The able bodied will have no problem with this whatsoever. It would be more difficult for the elderly or those who are wobbly on their feet as there are no steps. There are a few branches that you can hang on to as you take 3 or 4 good size steps to get up the small hill. The house has beach chairs, mats, boogie board and other toys for your use! All in all, the photos & descriptions on the website are very accurate. The property managers were very friendly and courteous to deal with. I would definitely recommend this beautiful rental!

A wonderful and comfortable home for our family vacation
We stayed at The Niulani Beach home for 8 days in april with our 2 children and parents. What a wonderful home! It was a perfect size and every ammenity you could think of was provided for, making it extremely comfortable for all! The location was excellent - very convenient to shopping and restaurants. It was also very centrally located for touring the island. The view and sounds of the ocean only added to the whole experience. Greg and Sue were pleasant, easy to deal with and very responsive. We'd recommend this home and hope to come back for another visit to Kauai!
Fantastic vacation at Niulani
Gorgeous location and home, owners are totally delightful, Garden Island Properties personnel are wonderful! We would come back and stay here!

Contemporary living in a tranquille part of the planet
Felt like a home that fits our sensibilities. The architecture with the high ceilings and overall comfort provided many goo relaxing evenings.
Fair Oaks, CA
This was a great place for our group of four generations of family. The adult children and grandkids stayed on the main house. The grandparents stayed in the bungalow and the great grandparents stayed in the cottage. Our one surprise was that on the agency web site it said that there would be kitchenettes in the bungalow and cottage. The bungalow had no kitchen and the cottage had a refrigerator and coffee pot but no microwave. This meant that we all had to go to the main house for all meals. The main house had a wonderful huge kitchen so it did work out. I just do not like it when things are not what they say they are. Read more
Response from Garden Island Properties LLC - 06/22/2010
aloha! Yes, this home is a great place for couples to large families! Due to a new County law, kitchens had to be removed from the smaller units on property. Cottage does have a large capacity refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, silver ware and plates only. We apologize for any inconvenience. Thus the kitchen in the main home on property is very well equipped to handle large family groups. aloha, Garden Island Properties
Perfect in every way.
This house is so central on the east shore in Kauai that you can go to the north or south shore beaches quickly and with ease. The house was more than adequately equipped with all your needs including a few beach related items. The house can sleep 6 comfortably and we rented the cottage as well and that had everything you needed for two more people.
There are lots of shops, fishing areas and even "Baby beach" is in walking distance. We swam in the beach behind the house and it was fine, there are just very few fishes and fishing is not recommend, because all you will be catching are the rocks and be very careful swimming if you are not good at it.
There is a dive shop next to the Chevron that has all your rental needs for cheap, much better stuff than Bobs Snorkel wet suits for $20 a week which I recommend if you want to do any snorkeling early morning or before the water hits 80 degrees or more. My wife doesn't know how to swim well, but with the suit she was able to float without any other help. Get a dry snorkel as well, you won't regret it.
Poipu has the best snorkeling on the island, Anini beach is great for beginners and beautiful and Polihale beach was amazing and beautiful. Island food is good, but Costco has the best prices on everything including gas. We spent $150 on food for 4 people for 5 days 2 meals a day. The house had everything we needed to prepare the meals including very good cookware.
The house doesn't have AC, so you have to keep the windows and doors open to keep it cool but other than that the place is wonderful. Do not hesitate to rent this house if you are in doubt.
Great location, wonderful home
We really enjoyed our stay at the Niulani Beach Home. There were two couples with young children and my mother in our group. The house is located right on a sandy beach which was great for the kids. It is conveniently located walking distance from grocery stores and many other services and restaurants. The house is beautiful and well maintained with great ocean views. The kitchen was huge and well stocked. We also rented the cottage and was a perfect 3rd bedroom for my mother. We would definitely stay here again.
Everything we could ask for
Niulani was perfect for our family reunion/vacation. It had everything we could ask for. We were really impressed at how the reality of Niulani and the website matched. Compliments to both the home & the website. We used the main house, bungalow & cottage & I received many compliments for booking such a great place. Everyone called it their best vacation ever!
Fell Asleep To the Sound of the Ocean
This home is right on the ocean in the town of Kapaa. There is no swimming
beach but I loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean. The
house is an open floor plan with a great kitchen. There is adequate dining at
both the kitchen bar counter and the dining room table. Both bedrooms and
bathrooms were extremely nice and there is also a loft upstairs with a double
bed. The house is one of three on the property and you share a yard and the
BBQ. This was a non issue when we were there because we were the only ones
renting that week. If there is a criticism of the house it would be that the deck
off the back is so small. It would be great it if were bigger to accommodate a
couple more lounge chairs. We enjoyed the central location but not everyone
will enjoy the traffic to get there! Garden Island Properties was very nice to
work with; all the directions, etc. were easy to follow and everything was as it
should have been. We rented this house as the beginning of our two week
Thanksgiving family reunion and we all enjoyed it very much. Read more

aloha and mahalo for your reivew....Niulani Beach Home is definitely a special piece of paradise..one of the few oceanfront homes on the east side of Kaua`i. The deck facing the ocean comfortably has an outdoor patio table & 6 chairs as well as chaise lounges. It would be nicer if we could enlarge it, but unable due to County setback regulations, with its close proximity to the ocean.
We now rent it as one property; so you do have complete privacy should you choose to not rent all 3 units. Moonrises and sunrises from this home are spectacular and a definite must see! aloha, Garden Island properties
Santa Monica, California
The best of everything
The Niulani Beach House is tucked away on a hidden street that many locals
don't even know about. It's oceanfront location is magical, and you can
conveniently walk into old Kapa'a town for restaurants and shopping, or
across the street to Papaya's or Longs Drugs.
The gourmet kitchen is great, if you choose to eat in. We took advantage of
the many farmers markets and ate locally whenever we could. The master
bedroom/bath is large, and the 2nd bedroom and sleeping loft were big
enough that everyone had sufficient living space. The TV and stereo were a
bit funky but who comes to Kauai to watch TV anyway?
The beachfront backyard gave loads of much needed chill time. We whale
watched, kite-surf gazed and walked down to the beach for a snorkel.
I have mixed emotions about writing this because I'm not sure I want my
Kauai paradise to become too popular. When we stay there, we don't really
feel like tourists. That's the beauty of renting a house like this. I really
truly wish that this house belonged to me.
It was so wonderful being right there on the ocean. We watched the full moon come up and it was beautiful. The house is the most interesting architecture I think I have ever seen in a house.
The neighborhood was quiet and nice. We enjoyed the large kitchen, we had three cooks and we weren't crowded at all. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.
