Terrific studio. Wonderful owner

This was our 10th visit to Kauai. We have stayed in various accommodations and locations. West offers a well appointed studio at a great price.
This studio is located at the Sandpiper complex in Princeville. Sandpiper is a small complex with a mix of families and visitors. It’s quiet, easy to get to, and has a great pool/barbecue area, and a friendly atmosphere. The upper studio units have stairs to climb, raised ceilings and more privacy.
West is a great host. He lives next door, is attentive, but never intrusive and very knowledgeable about the area.
The studio is very clean. The bed is comfortable. Each side has a lamp and table with drawers. There is a table for two, chair with ottoman, TV/DVD, and wifi. There is a ceiling fan an two additional fans. The sink area is separate from the shower/toilet area and has has been remodeled. It has a large, deep sink with raised faucet. This makes washing dishes, rinsing items and filling water bottles easy. There is a dish drainer, dish/laundry soap, hairdryer and plenty of drawer space in the sink’s cabinet. Two Beach towels, large shower towels, regular towel sets and kitchen towels are provided. We did our laundry at Laundry Express in south Kapa’a. It’s clean with large, well maintained, fast machines. They have a Facebook page with photos and prices.
The lanai faces the street. There is a high table for two on the lanai, custom counter with upper cupboards supplied with dishes,flatware, glasses, coffee mugs, coffee maker, utensils, basic spices, pots/pans, rice cooker, blender, microwave, two burner countertop stove, toaster, toaster oven, an assortment of bowls, towels. There is a mid size fridge with separate freezer section. There are 3 boogie boards, a beach umbrella, mats, cooler and two beach chairs stored in the corner. A large, separate wicker looking container is available for food waste. No insect issues. There is one large gecko that you occasionally hear, but don’t often see. There is a drying rack for wet items. The lanai has a privacy screen. When lowered it allows light and air in. Having the food storage and prep areas on the lanai makes the studio feel like it has like another room.
There are books on Kauai and a binder with many local menus and information. West also includes a parking permit with designated parking right in front of the building.
West’s studio is well appointed and a great find. We’ve already booked it for our next trip!
