Great place
ROBIN M. | Aug 2022
Vacasa was extremely attentive on the details and very kind. The place is super clean, with nice view and really central location near lots of restaurants and to the airport.
MAYARA G. | Aug 2022
The east coast is the perfect place to stay on Kauai, especially with a family, and I think it doesn’t get much better than this exact spot! Perfectly centrally located. And because this was the absolute most affordable location that offered a full kitchen, it was a perfect fit for this single momma & her babies. Close to grocery stores & a pharmacy. Walking distance from a beautiful (though rocky surf) beach. Smack at the start of the Kauai Bike/multi-purpose path, which is the most beautiful place I’ve ever run in my life! The plywood wall obstructing the view of the ocean was a bit disappointing, and the park is just an open field, but again, priced totally appropriately. The queen mattress was not exceptionally soft, so if you appreciate a firmer mattress, this one’s for you! Bring a sleep mask if you’re a crappy sleeper like me & can’t sleep with light, because there are no black out curtains here. And bring your USB power bricks, because they only have two outlets that don’t require them. But the condo was great! All the right amenities. First floor, which is super handy with kids & hauling stuff in & out. Camping chairs & insulated lunch box with freezer packs, to bring a picnic anywhere you go. Everything you’d need in the kitchen! (Except sanitizing wipes: maybe pick those up at the store on your way in.) Oversized, super soft beach towels came in clutch & they offer plenty of pillows & linens to stay clean and cozy. It was very clean, very comfy, adorably furnished, and I’d stay there again! (With ear plugs & a sleep mask.😁) The owners seem absolutely darling! They were so thoughtful! Left welcome gifts, a personalized card, local goodies/snacks, and even a gift card for the best shaved ice shop around! All the art is their daughter’s photography that I would have thought they bought from an interior design store! If you’re going to be critical or have a discerning eye for the most updated place in town, go stay somewhere on which you’ll spend a sizable portion of your kids’ college funds 😉 & don’t damage the awesome rating of this cute place and these sweet owners with anything less than 5 stars. But if you’re a mainland dweller like me, who is positively giddy just to be crashing beachside in paradise for a while, this is 100% the place! I’m thrilled with our memories & wish we were still there!

Where is Kapaa?

This truly spectacular area is nestled on the upper east coast of Kauai, one of the lushest places on earth. From here, it's about a four-mile drive down the coast to Wailua, and about four miles up to Kealia, another beautiful coastal town. Drive about 30 miles north to explore the legendary Napali Coast on the north side of the island.

Things to Do in Kapaa

Pack your comfortable walking shoes and raingear—Kapaa is brimming with gorgeous hikes and waterfalls! Ho'opi'i Falls is particularly popular, and many visitors also enjoy the Ho'olalaea Waterfall. For a more relaxing day, explore the shore at Kapaa Beach Park, or simply bring a picnic to enjoy with the sound of the waves.

Kayaking is very popular in Kauai, so there are plenty of places in Kapaa to rent one. After you're done with the day's adventures, head to the quaint town for dinner and drinks and do some souvenir shopping.

Once you experience the magic of Kauai, you may not want to ever leave—and we don't blame you! Whether you're here for outdoor excursions or are seeking peace and quiet in a tropical setting, you'll find one of our Kapaa vacation rentals to suit your every need.
