Jack & Dorinda-
What a great place to stay. The beautiful ocean, turtles, and watching the surfers. Scuba diving, snorkeling, golf, ziplining, kayaking, hiking, napali coast. We did it all and hope to come back next year for more! We love this island and really enjoyed your condo. Thanks!
~ Jonathan & Chris, San Jose, CA
P.S. Oh ... and the sunsets! Way Beautiful
Aloha Jack & Dorinda!
This condo is beautiful! We loved waking up to the sounds of crashing waves, snorkeling with the fish, turtles and people and watching the beautiful sunset. This condo is perfectly located, neat and we enjoyed this section of our honeymoon very much! We saw and visited many beaches and sites (too much to write) so THANKS!

A beautiful place to spend our 30th anniversary! Everything was more than we could have expected. Thank you for sharing this fantastic condo on the ocean.
~ Patty & Wayne Deaton
Thanks Jack & Dorinda,
This was an amazing start to our honeymoon! We loved having breakfast every morning right in front of the ocean. We also enjoyed snorkeling at Poipu Beach, hiking at Mahalepu beaches, Waimea Canyon, dinner at Tidepools, and Keoki's Paradise, and just relaxing! We definitely want to come back again!

Aloha Jack & Dorinda!
What an amazing Honeymoon this has been. Your condo is wonderful and made us feel at home. This place is amazing. We will be coming back for sure!! We really enjoyed relaxing here and watching the Surfers and turtles. We also enjoyed snorkeling right next to the Beach House restaurant. There were 2 Monk Seals there most of the time. We also enjoyed Spouting Horn, the Tropical Botanical Gardens and a Luau at the Grand Hyatt. We really don't want to leave ...

Aloha Dorinda and Jack!!
I'll always remember this week at your condo as one of the best weeks of my life! The hominess of your home and the relaxed atmosphere of this area are amazingly wonderful. If anyone asked me what's my idea of heaven on earth, I'd have to say staying at your condo in Kauai comes pretty close. We had a great and relaxing time. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.
~ Renee & Skip
P.S. We loved walking to the Beach House for dinner. I also loved climbing on the rocks late afternoon to get close to the sea turtles (drew picture of turtle). They are so amazing and right in front of your condo.
P.S.S. Puka Dog is Pai Pu Village is fabulous. A hot dog like you've never had before!!
June 30 - July 7 2007
Ditto on all that was said by previous tenants...
Don't miss the small Savage Shrimp truck just up the road for amazing garlic shrimp, local and fresh. And the Fish House in Kiluhea up toward North Shore has the best plate lunch I've ever had in Oahu, Maui or Kauai! The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook is the best guide for hidden gems, beaches, hikes ...
Oh and at the end of the road if you explore a few blocks from here, past baby beach, are steps down to a great turtle/Honu viewing area.

What a wonderful vacation and what a magnificent condo you have!!
We spent hours relaxing and watched the surfers and the sea turtles! They seem to like to be in the surf at high tide. We went to Big Save in Koloa and bought breakfast items, drinks, and snacks so we could just enjoy the amazing views. We just want to savor every moment that we spent at your fabulous condo! We only wish that we had a few more days here but we feel fortunate that we got to stay here at all since it was short notice.
Last year we had an ocean view room at the Sheraton and thought your condo wouldn't be able to top that but it has!! Your condo surpassed all our expectations! We will definitely be back when the opportunity arises! We saved our sightseeing for the next few days when we're back at the Sheraton (since someone else is arriving here today). We're going to the Alerton Gardens and maybe on a Napali Sunset Cruise. I enjoyed reading suggestions from others. We had drinks and appetizers at the Beach House, went to Keoki's Paradise, and enjoyed the free Tahitian show (Friday at 7:30 at the Poipu Shopping Center in summer). We loved snorkeling right at Lawai Beach.
Thank you for making our stay so perfect and memorable!
~ Renee & Drew Perry, Sacramento, CA
Dear Jack & Dorinda,
We've had an absolutely marvelous time here on Kauai in large part thanks to you! We couldn't have been more comfortable - all our needs provided for - even the beach gear, coffee, snacks and Kauai books added to the hospitable comfort of your lovely condo. And the view ... breathtaking!
We've been entertained by surfing, sea turtles, and humans each day, while enjoying lovely sunsets each evening. And the stars! They sparkle overhead and all the way to the horizon - even shooting stars which we never see from the suburbs anymore.
Other than "chillin" on your patio, our favorite things included snorkeling at Poipu Beach, Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour and Blue Dolphin 5 1/2 hour snorkel cruise up the Napali Coast. Dinners at Roy's and Keoki's at Poipu Shopping Village were great but I'd avoid Poipu Tropical Burgers there. We're looking forward to our dinner at Beach House tonight, sadly, our last night here. Oh, Spouting Horn and National Botanical Gardens up the road were also superb ... took lots of pictures.
Thanks again for sharing this piece of paradise with us!

Aloha Jack & Dorinda and All Future 115 visitors!
What a vacation. Where to start. From the moment we walked through your front door and saw the waves crashing, we knew we were in for a treat! This place is wonderful - especially the lanai and sea turtles. Everything we could have needed/wanted was here. And this place made our stay on the South Shore of Kauai excellent.
My husband and I are sad that our stay on Kauai is coming to an end. This island was our favorite (over Maui) during our !Honeymoon! We especially loved:
Thank you (Mahalo) and Aloha!

Unfortunately, we are leaving tomorrow after spending a week at your great condo. The view and the adjacent beach are beautiful. We chose Kauai for our honeymoon and could not have made a better choice. We love the people, the beauty, the activities and the food. We are already planning, "when can we come back?". The laid-back atmosphere here is great. Today my husband caught a 365 lb. Blue Marlin while out with "Explore Kauai Sportfishing"! We have had a very memorable trip.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us.

- Kauai - one visit is not enough - the fauna, the landscape, the diving, snorkeling, the people, the food, the unique place - all means a first visit can only be a sampler. The apartment could not be better placed, the view is stupendous.

Aloha Jack & Dorinda!
Well, we are nearing the end of our 13 night stay and it has gone fast! We didn't kick back too much. I kept us active with sightseeing and activities. Up early most morns, to bed early most nights. We ate out some and cooked in some. We found the condo perfect for our stay!
What a location! Awesome. We had mostly good experiences eating out. Our favorite - Waimea Brewing Co., The Pizzetta in Koloa Town and Keoki's Paradise. Kauai has had different affects on my husband and myself! It has relaxed Joe and he wants to crash and eat all the time and has energized and excited myself and I want to go all day sightseeing and do activities and then pass out in bed at night! We did a lot and it's hard to pick our favorites; it was all beyond our expectations. We toured the Alerton Gardens (had an amazing tour guide Al), toured the Hindu Monestary (very peaceful education. Beautiful - they have limited tours each month). The Lighthouse and bird sanctuary in North Shore, Snorkeling next door at Lawai Beach (and the Monk seals beach), Waimea Canyon (the view and the quiet looking over the canyon), visiting the coffee plantation (just beautiful there), the Smith Luau was fun, walking the Hyatt grounds, and as a lot of folks say, the best things in Kauai are free. So true - just being here and soaking up the place. I'll miss the roosters, hens, and peeps and the friendly birds and Hawaiian Cardinals. The flowers and plants and trees. We took lots of pics and videos so we will remember with them!
Mahalo Jack & Dorinda
Have a great time future renters!

Dorinda and Jack,
WOW!!! What a great place to get away from what seems to have been the longest winter with so much snow!!! We really enjoyed our first trip to Kauai and had fun each day exploring new beaches (Larsen's, Secret and Polihale) to hiking the nu'olola Trail in Waimea Canyon. We also really enjoyed the condo with the awesome sunsets and watching the surfers and turtles. It will be a trip we will always cherish.

Jack & Dorinda,
Thank you for sharing your little part of paradise! The condo is wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. This was our first trip to Kauai - we spent a lot of time outdoors, hiking, snorkeling, taking in the sun, etc. Your condo was a wonderful place to come back to at the end of the day. Many evenings we cooked supper here or picked something up and ate it here. Where on the island can you find a more beautiful view?! Again, thanks for sharing your condo and making our 25th anniversary special!
~ Andrea & Terry, Greenielty, SC
P.S. The day we hung out here and rested we watched the surfers surfing, the whales frolicking, the dolphins spinning and the turtles ... well, whatever turtles do. The Beach House was wonderful! Red Hot Mamas had great burritos!
3-19 thru 3/23
What a wonderful escape from Denver chaos and snow, snow, snow! My dedication to getting up early and watching the 7am surfers is only surpassed by their dedication to getting up early and performing for me! You were so right. This is the place to be and thoroughly enjoyed our 30th anniversary "alone". Met the sweet visiting turtle family. Hope we can return one day to your little hideaway!
Thanks again for everything!
~ The Flynns from Denver Colorado
June 21 /06 says it all for us. We took our Harter Heli ride in spite of 2 crashes last week, so great!
Thanks Dorinda and Jack! We surely enjoyed your hospitality and met Stasea, too! She does a nice job.
~ Carole and John Shevlin, Payson, AZ
Need another memory book - this one tries one's patience and writing skills. Lovely to look at, hardly pragmatic.
~ John S.
The passing pods of whales were awesome!
This condo is furnished with stylish furniture and decor. There is no better place - condo or otherwise!

This was our first trip to Hawaii and felt we were very fortunate to have chosen this island and this condo. We did a lot and it was all wonderful - Hindu Monastery, NaPali, Explorer II boat trip, Blue Hawaii helicopter tour, Botanical Gardens, Smith Family Luau. We need another week so we can kick back and do nothing. Our favorite restaurant was the Beach House. Snorkeling at the Beach House beach was awesome. Everyone - just have fun.
~ Sharon & Marty Borrevik, Columbia City, OR
Aloha Jack & Dorinda,
It is 1 week into our vacation and I just want to thank you a million times for sharing this beautiful condo. We are having a blast. Right now I am laying out by the ocean and thinking I am in heaven. This is our 3rd trip to Kauai with my big family. This time my husband and I wanted a place of our own. Everyone else is jealous. So far we have hiked and enjoyed the Kalalau Trail. That was an adventure. Went horseback riding in Princeville. Golfing, snorkeling, sight seeing, kayaking, etc. Whale watching tour is tomorrow. My dad has been certified as a Monk Seal protector. He ropes them off when they beach on shore. Right now he is off to the left bay roping one off with his SPZ's (Seal Protective Zone). We re definitely coming back here again.
~ Laura & Michael May, Inlet Grove, MN
Dear Jack & Dorinda -
You own a little piece of paradise!! We arrived here from Maui and after being here for a day wished we had spent less time there and more time here!
Your condo is lovely - tastefully furnished and decorated. We appreciated the well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed! We really enjoyed snorkeling in the bay next door - next to the Beach House restaurant - so many fish. We also loved eating breakfast on the lanai and watching the whales and surfers put on a morning show. Our time here was too short but we hope to return. Mahalo -
~ Jan & Dick Berls, Sarakya Spring, NY
Dear Jack & Dorinda,
Thank you for another perfect week in paradise. The stars and sunsets were spectacular. We love your new pineapple lamp. We hope to return again this year.
~ Gini Gardner & Steve Johnson, Novato, CA
This is a special place and we hope to be back! Even losing my appendix at the Wilcox medical center on Christmas night went better than anyone could have hoped for. Fantastic hospital and a gracious, first class staff!
The Alerton Garden was a highlight and Wendy, our guide, was terrific. The surf was up at PK's and my husband surfed the North Shore as well. The kayaking was lovely. Simply walking to the blowhole each morning was a treat.
Thanks for the hospitality!
