The cottage is situated across from a church parking lot on a side street, close enough to town to be convenient, but far enough away from the main road to not hear any traffic from Kuhio Hwy.


Ohi`a Kai is approximately nine miles from Lihue Airport, a 20-minute drive at non-peak times. Haena State Park, at the end of the road when driving north, is about an hour’s drive, as is Kekaha, the southwestern end of the road. Haena is where you’ll find Ke`e Beach and the trailhead to the spectacular Na Pali Coast trail. Some popular visitor destinations and their approximate driving times include Kealia Beach ½ mile to the north, baby beach ½ mile to the south, toward Lihue and we are one block from the coastal bike multi use bike path . Other popular places to go are: Lydgate Beach Park (10 minutes), Limahuli National Tropical Garden (55 minutes), Kilauea Lighthouse (20 minutes), `Anini Beach (25 minutes), Poipu Beach Park (40 minutes), Kukui Grove Mall (22 minutes), `Opaeka`a Falls (15 minutes), Wailua Falls (30 minutes), and the largest coffee plantation in the USA, Kauai Coffee (35 minutes).

To reach `Ohi`a Kai from Lihue Airport, turn right at the traffic light as you’re leaving the airport. The road becomes Kuhio Highway at the next traffic light. Continue straight for about nine miles. Along the way you will cross the Wailua River, pass the Coconut Marketplace shopping and dining complex on your right, pass two adjacent shopping centers on your left, pass more restaurants on your left, and come to a traffic light in front of a small shopping complex with a Big Save grocery store, U.S. Post Office, and Shell gas station. A few blocks further and you will see a left-turn only lane in front of the Latter Day Saints Church. There is no traffic light here, but you will see the entrance to Pono Kai resort directly to your right and a sign welcoming you to downtown Kapa`a in the grassy area ahead. Turn left onto `Ohia Street. Note that this is a 90° turn. `Ohi`a Kai, clearly marked with green signs, is three houses down, at the end of this short street, just before the gate to a county property.
Park in the spot directly in front of the cottage. If we are not on site when you arrive, we have a lock box on the front door. If you plan to arrive in the evening, contact us prior to your arrival so that we can give you the lock box combination.

The location of `Ohi`a Kai Cottage and Hale is ideal for vacationers, business visitors, and residents seeking short-term housing. Managed and operated by owners Bob and Marianne, it is on a quiet lot one very short block, mountain side, of Kuhio Highway, within convenient walking distance of the beach, several churches, and the shopping and dining pleasures of downtown Kapa`a. To reach the ocean, simply cross Kuhio Highway and walk through Pono Kai Resort. By walking one block north on Kuhio Highway, one is in the center of quaint Kapa’a town, with restaurants, shops, banks and a handful of other local businesses. If you are not familiar with Kuhio Highway, it is helpful to know that it is not a busy thoroughfare, but a two-lane road with a 25 mph speed limit with lots of crosswalks where it passes through Kapa`a.

Kauai is rapidly becoming the island of choice by return visitors: "Kauai is the real Hawaii."

See our reviews. This is an example of why we have a 4+ rating. Review
"This property is well kept and has all the essentials, including internet and air conditioning which will make you the envy of many people locally who depend on the trade winds to stop you from sweltering on the island. It's a stone's throw away from Kapaa's restaurants and bars and the sea front if you fancy watching the sunrise, or a stroll along the beach. Kapaa itself is excellently situated for amenities on the island and is well situated for seeing everything on the island as it is relatively central. It is also very close to some of the island's best beaches on the Coconut Coast. The owners are extremely friendly, offer prompt customer service, or quick help if you need it (i.e locking your self out in the middle of the night). On several occasions I was delighted to find gifts of fruit that they had sourced from their garden. An excellent property and the best value I could find." No smoking and no pets allowed.
