House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
About Scott Worner
We purchased the house, being from New York, looking for a warm and sunny place to spend some quiet time.
Scott Worner purchased this House in 2012
Why Scott Worner chose Kekaha
More sun and warmth. Less rain and humidity. Quiet and more old world Hawaii. Love the 15+ mile beach. This is the real Hawaii, not the one of resorts and expensive hotels.
What makes this House unique
Favorite thing to do is just walk out the front door, across the street to the beach, and grab a spot under palm trees slightly to the left and watch the ocean and sunsets. Love to sit out on the lanai and read. I like to cook fresh fish, among other things, and that's why I have such a well equipped kitchen. We have done most of the excursions and just like to relax at home mostly. But my favorite excursion is taking a catamaran up the Napali Coast.

West Side Quiet
This cute place on the west side of the island, while not close to as many amenities as properties on north and east side, benefits from less congestion and is much more affordable than staying closer "to the action." We enjoyed the close proximity to beautiful Waimea Canyon (the Awaawapuhi Trail
is fantastic) and being able to walk the beach (a short block away). Doesn't take long to get other places on the island (traffic dependent, of course) since it's so small, so easy to see other sites and be back to the quiet side in the evenings.
Individual window a/c units in 2 of 3 bedrooms and 2 in the bedroom allowed for "customized" a/c. Along with ceiling fans, we found quite adequate.
Property manager very responsive and helpful, offering many tips for our visit. He was right about the helicopter tour - a "must do!"
We had a great vacation. The house is equipped with everything we needed. The only downside was the heat in the back bedrooms, the window air conditioners just couldn’t cool them enough.
Just be prepared for the roosters, there is nothing that can be done but they are vocal and in abundance.
We would definitely stay here again.
The Best of the West
Everything was wonderful. The location was perfect with a beach that is within walking distance, the kitchen and bathrooms were well-stocked, very quiet neighborhood. The house was also super clean! Overall we were glad to stay and we would stay again.
Kind of hard to understand such a nice review and only getting 4 stars.
Since we always strive for five, we would have liked to have seen 5 stars with such a positive review.
Nevertheless, we hope to see you again soon.
Very nice place to stay in fully equipped wonderful house
The house is perfectly equipped for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Ocean view is breath taking espesially the sunsets. Shopping facilities in Waimea are near so you need not to go out for dinner but can cook or use the grill.
We really enjoyed the vacation on Kauai - many thanks!
Nice location, quiet and very close to the beach.
The house is fully equipped with everything a vacationer need. We lived comfortably except when problem exist like power going off, there's no immediate response available. Our last 2 days of stay was not so comfortable due to power outage in both bedrooms, the master and across. No power on all the outlet. We stayed most of the time in livingroom to watch TV. The masterbed has a/c but not the other room. I thought the fridge is down but I think it's just the lightbulb.
We did respond to the guest saying that the refrigerator was not working. However, upon inspection, it was working fine, but the interior light bulb needed to be replaced.
They had also mentioned that the A/C in the second bedroom was not working. It had just flipped the breaker in the breaker box. Once it was turned on, the A/C worked fine. There are a total of 4 air conditioners in this house.
Peaceful, Comfortable, and so close to the Beach!
This place is the perfect getaway! Comfortable, quiet home with everything you could ask for. A/C, full kitchen, comfortable beds and a quiet neighborhood. So close to the beach I walked there each night to watch the sunset. Beautiful! I will be back!
