... and would have to step into the stream. It was only about knee deep, but the water was running fast. Sometimes we just walked upstream through the water when the rocks were too large or to spread apart.
Occasionally we would reach a part of the stream that was not walkable, so we would cut up the bank into the jungle. There is a trail, but it is only barely noticeable. There are also many side trails and false trails. This is ...
... in our silver Chrysler 200 convertible. We noticed about half way to our lodging that the car squeaked really badly. After 11 hours of airline travel, we really just wanted to get to our room so we tried to ignore it. We followed the directions provided to us by the owners of Makaleha Bed & Coffee and had no problem finding it. It is in Kapa'a at the base of the mountains. The location is so beautiful and peaceful. Our room was ready for us when ...
... Leaving there on the way to the airport terminal. First stop was was at the beach. .We did check out the movies but no matinees so stopped at a picnic table and ate our sausage sandwich. Next stop was at JJ’s Broiler, by Dukes. Tonya is a good waitress and we like here. The food was good, again. And from here to the airport where we went through the agriculture checkpoint and then through the security check with no snags for once. On to the gate and ...
Sue's turn! It's a hot sunny day today as we headed through the Tunnel of Trees to the South shore. The tunnel is made of eucalyptus trees which someone brought to the island from Australia to stabilise the surface soil and stop the road from flooding. The tunnel is about a mile long and pretty with shafts of sunlight shining through. We missed the tunnel the first time as my usually brilliant navigational ...
... Spencer the professional surfer, early in the morning and had Mom stand in as photographer (we couldn't get her to take lessons). I'm not sure what Spencer thought of us at first. He probably didn't think we were serious about learning at first what with Kimberly wearing a swim cap that said "Happy Birthday Kimberly" and a huge flower on it and Val with a camera around her neck at first (I assure you we were serious about learning just not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kauai Country Inn Kapaa
My husband and I spent 6 nights in the Green Rose Suite at the Kauai Country Inn, and would highly recommend it. Mike and Martina are warm, welcoming, knowledgeable, and simply delightful. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable, with beautiful hardwood floors. We particularly enjoyed the spacious kitchen/great room, and high speed internet right in our suite. Even the smallest suite there is charming. The location was perfect for us; off the beaten track, quiet and peaceful, with easy access to both the north and south shores. Martina recommended hiking trails, with spectacular views, that we thoroughly enjoyed. Kauai is lovely. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable, home base from which to explore, look no farther than the Kauai Country Inn.
We stayed at the Kauai Country Inn for 8 nights, and it was great! First, it's a little inland, but it's in the perfect spot, halfway between the north and south of the island.
Kauai Country Inn
Kauai Country Inn was a wonderful experience. It had everything that was advertised. A very homey atmosphere, beautiful location, facilities and extremely quite. It made you feel you were a local instead of a tourist. Martina and Mike are very gracious host. I'm definitely making this my number #1 place to stay on Kauai.
My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at this Inn in Kapa'a. We were in the Orchid Suite, a *steal* at $95/night. It has a separate bedroom (with computer and internet connection!), a small kitchen with microwave, hotplate, coffee maker, toaster, sink, and table, and a bathroom. Outside is a lovely lanai (deck) with full sized grill, table, hammock, and rocking chair.
The Best Inn ever!
If you want a beautiful Inn off the beaten path with advice from locals...this is the place to stay. Everything from the deck that overlooked the rainforest, in which I did yoga every morning with Kona coffee......to the amazing birds....to the grill that you can cook up local fish .......we absolutely loved this place and will be back!
This was a great find. We stayed there when we got married and it was great. We were able to get the private house and it was wonderful. It was a 3 bedroom 2 bath house with a full kitchen. They also have another house where they rent out suites but i did not see them. The place was quiet and secluded. A place to relax and isn't that why you go to Hawaii? You will need a car to get there and some really good directions though. Hawaii has a way saying the highway/street name instead of the hwy # which is what you get on yahoo. It will also take time in getting used to the local attitude which is really laid back. I am from Los Angeles and they say that we are laid back... Hawaii is even more.
We just got back from our second visit to Kauai. The first time we stayed in a Kapaa condo on the beach, nice enough but near a very busy street. This time we decided to try the Kauai Country Inn, off the beaten track in the Wailua Homesteads above Kapaa. What a great decision! The grounds of the inn are lovely, our suite was beautiful, clean and nicely decorated (and with lots of friendly touches like coffee, cookies, and macadamia nut candy), and the setting was fantastic. Up in the forested hills, the gentle breezes blow most of the day and it rains a few times daily; it is just a wonderful contrast to staying in the hot town. Martina and Mike Hough were very friendly and helpful hosts. We can't say enough good things about the Kauai Country Inn and would definately would stay there again. Also, Kapaa is a great jumping-off place to stay: centrally located, with all the good restaurants, and not trendy/fancy like Hanalei or Poipu. In conclusion, we highly recommend the Kauai Country Inn for people who want to stay in a lovely place, in the hills where the locals live.
We were a little concerned when booking, but the Kauai Country inn exceeded our expectations. Immaculately clean, beautifully furnished, good (off the beaten track) location. The owners were lovely, gave us some great recommendations. Just make sure you're not visiting in rainy season (rained 3 of 4 days).
Thumbs up to the Kauai Country Inn...
Everyone knows what to expect when they stay at a big hotel but choosing a bed & breakfast can be scary... Needless to say we made the right choice with the Kauai Country Inn! Mike & Martina Hough are great hosts, and the property is impeccable and has a lot of charm. I was especially appreciative for the insider info on where to eat and how to find the golf courses only the locals seem to know about. Thanks again. We'll be back!"
My wife and I went on our delayed honeymoon to Hawaii on Christmas 2004. After a few problems in Oahu including lost luggage, bad luau experience and heavy extra expenses we arrived dirty and tired at Lihue on the 27th.
