    I think this is my new favorite place to stay. I am a vegan about 70% of the time- vegetarian the rest. The restaurant was fabulous- so nice to look on the menu and not have to narrow it down to a few choices... The...More

    Can't say enough good things about this space. We could only stay one night (they usually require 2, but I called a few days before we arrived and they had one room for one night). On arrival (3:00pm) there's tea and cobbler in the lounge...More

    This is a lovely inn-- rustic charm with woodburning fireplaces (already laid for a fire), decks overlooking the ocean, sumptuous plants everywhere and the kind of attention to detail that makes you glad you landed here (like homemade cookies in your room every night). We...More

    We chose to stay here for a romantic get-away, and were not disappointed. Everything: the service (wonderful staff), the view, the comfy (very large) room, the food--was amazing. Can't wait to come back, but I'd want to stay longer to enjoy all there is to...More

    I don't know Napaii Kai but Stsnford Inn won't do the trick. Across the highway from the water. Never heard any waves lapping. But it's a nice experience.
