We had a lovely time on Kauai in mid-February and very much enjoyed our stay at Moana Kai Beach House B. It was perfect for 3 couples. We saw humpback whales breaching from the lanai and enjoyed cooking meals in the well-appointed kitchen. The location on the island is great. If it wasn't for the roosters (that seemed to begin crowing each night around 1 a.m.), it would have been perfect. Thanks!

We found the quality of the house and the supply of essential household items(eg. soap, cleaning supplies,paper products) to be exceptional. Also the bath and bed linens were top quality. The house is well maintained as was the pool and landscaping. We woke up to a beautiful sunrise every morning; thanks in part to our grandchildren and the rooster living next door. Our grandchildren loved the pool and all the toys provided by the house. We made good use of the sand toys at the various beautiful beaches around the island. This was our first visit to Kauai. We hope to be back ...

This was an incredible rental. Great location. Easy access to beach and paved trail begins out the back door. Kapaa centrally located around island if you plan on spending time on each side of the island. Best stocked kitchen of any rental I have stayed in (plenty of plates, glasses, pans, rice cooker, blender etc.) Our family loves to cook and we ate almost every meal at the house. I would love to stay here again.

The unit was very clean when we arrived. The furnishings and decor exceeded our expectations. All the amenities required for a pleasurable stay were provided and it was a big plus to have boogie boards, snorkel gear, reef shoes and toys provided as well. They thought of everything. Will definately stay there when coming back.

The place was clean, well appointed and has a really nicely laid out floorplan. Awesome lanai with perpetual ocean breeze. Nice beaches, close to everything yet tucked away for some privacy. The only thing we won't miss are the noisy roosters, but even they became tolerable after a day or 2 in that environment! Great private condo at a reasonable price. Highly recommend!

Nice house! We shared with another couple, and there was plenty of separation and privacy. Before choosing this house my wife and I did a lot of research on condos on Kauai, including some of the two and three story apartment-like ones being advertised elsewhere. One night we went for a walk along the path behind our house and walked past a large condo complex we had previously considered. What a relief we chose Moana Kai Beach House! The poor folks we saw through their sliding glass doors in their tiny little living rooms... that could have been us!

The home is a beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bath beach house with breathtaking secenery. The house is completely furnished with anything you would want. The home is completely furnished with everything you could possibly want, and plenty of room for family or friends to spend a vacation together. The pool is just a few steps off the lanai and the beach is out the gate and maybe 50 feet from the lanai. Everything in Kapaa is so convenient, good places to eat and to shop. I found it very easy to drive anywhere on the island from this location. We enjoyed our stay eminsely.

The location is great, especially if you have small children. The baby beach is a very short walk away and our daughter loved going there. The house faces out to the ocean and there's a continuous, wonderful breeze that blows, keeping you cool. The home was well appointed, with everything that we needed and we had a great time here.

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful condo in Kapaa. Extremely spacious, modern, clean and well equipped with everything you could need, Moana Kai was the perfect place to start our holiday in Hawaii. The in room jacuzzi was bliss & the lanai hot tub was the perfect place to sit back & watch the windsurfers & waves roll in to the beach only 50metres or so from the house.

This is a beautiful beach house with lots of space and great furnishings. You couldn't ask for a better central location to cover this side of the island. The dipping pool was perfect for our 3 and 5 year olds, as well as us! Only downside, I believe there was a hot tub that wasn't working and the cats in heat (crying in the early morning) were far worse than the usual roosters the island has. Ear plugs were provided though! Would love to go back.

This rental is centrally located in Kapaa. You can walk to restaurants then take a walk along the beach path. There is a beach perfect for young families in front of the rental or a surf beach within walking distance. If you don't want to swim in the ocean, there is a pool. The rental is beautifully decorated and has all the ammenities. I would certainly recommend this rental to family and friends and hope to return soon.

My family has enjoyed this incredible home 2 winter vacations in a row. It's the perfect lay-out to share with another couple or family, with the master separate from the other 2 bedrooms. (We go with our pre-school age daughter & my parents too). My pet peeve when staying in hotels/condos/homes are the quality of beds most owners use. The beds in this place are top knotch! It feels like we are staying in a friends home, not a rental property. Great job Dornfelds!

As well as getting married this was our first time on Kauai. We had such an awesome time and we feel so fortunate to have found Moana Kai. What a beautiful home!!! Everything about this place was perfect,especially the view from the lanai. We were disappointed that the hot tub was not working and the barbque grill did not work so well. There was also a few nights of noisy partying behind the house. All these things are minor though compared to all the positives. We also loved the decor,cleanliness,and comfort this house gave us. Thankyou Mr. Dornfield, we would love to come visit again!!
