Take a look at all of our wonderful journal entries we have received below from our previous visitors. After reading these you will not want to miss a moment of our relaxing vacations.

We have had a fantastic Spring Break vacation on Kauai! Riverside Aloha was just what we needed – a spacious, comfortable, well out-fitted base from which to explore this beautiful island. We explored many beaches. Our favorites were Ke’e, Tunnels, Brennecke and Poipu. Lots of great waves for boogie boarding and playing, plus a few calm spots for snorkeling. Other treats included helicopter tour of the island and surfing lessons. We will definitely return!

- Darwin, Aine, Aislinn & Aidan, British Columbia, Canada

Had a great time! Our first time here and we would love a return visit. Had a wonderful time sharing the condo with brother and sister-in-law. Drove to the North end of both sides of the island and saw as much as we could during our week stay! What a great place! Heading back home to St. Cloud, Minnesota. WeTropical Flowers attend church with the DeRose’s and we are so blessed and thankful they opened the condo to others. Thank you! A beautiful island

- Roger & Tracy, St. Cloud, MN

Thank you so much Jim & Jeanette! We had such a great time here in Kauai for our HONEYMOON! We couldn’t have picked a better place! We travelled all over the island and it is a beautiful place. Snorkeling at Ke’e Beach was awesome. We brought an underwater camera and captured wonderful pictures of the fish underwater. We went on a helicopter ride for Jon’s birthday and it was amazing! Smith’s Luau was great to see and the Kulau pig was delicious! The NaPali See Breeze was great to do and see the island from a boat. Can’t wait to come back!

- Jon & Tracey, Baxter, MN

Aloha Jim & Jeanette! Many blessings are being sent your way for providing such a peaceful, lovely space here in Kauai. We enjoyed all of our time here on the island. Our daily spontaneous explorations led us to many heartfelt, soul-touching moments. We were lucky enough to share our first afternoon with the monk seal, Mahalo Eha. He gave us a glimpse of his sleeping life as he napped on the beach right behind the condo. We discovered the beauty of the island as we rode from the North Shore around to the Western Shore. Our trips down the back roads provided us with many great surprises and memories. Our strongest connection to the Aloha Spirit was through our daily connections with the wonderful people and animals of Kauai. For this, we are most grateful.

- With much Aloha, Earline & Jan

We have had a fun-filled, relaxing, and somewhat adventurous vacation!  The adventurous part started shortly before 7:00 a.m. Saturday, 2-27-2010, when the Hawaii Civil Defense issued a tsunami warning for the Hawaiian Islands following an earthquake in Chili! We spent the next several hours at the Kukui Grove Shopping Center. When it became evident Hawaii had “dodged the bullet” the all-clear was given and we were able to return to the condo.  We are thankful for God’s protection and are grateful for the many fun experiences we have had on this trip. During our stay we enjoyed boogie-boarding at Hanalei Bay, Kealia Beach & Kekaha Beach.  We  hiked Sleeping Giant and enjoyed the 360 degree views from the top of the mountain. We are returning home refreshed.  We hope you enjoy your stay in Kauai and Riverside Aloha as much as we did! 

- Brian & Jessica, Mankato, MN

We were privileged to be able to spend time here with our one year old son, Caleb, and my sister Katie, and her husband, Josh. We had an absolute blast in Kauai!  A couple of our favorites include hiking the Kalalau Trail 4 miles back to Hanakapi’ai Falls and hiking Sleeping Giant.  One of our favorite beaches to boogie board was at Kalihiwai Beach where we rode ways in for about 20 – 30 seconds!  We also did a zip line excursion which was fabulous! Everyday was wonderful and you can’t go wrong on any of the beaches here, they are gorgeous! We were so blessed by this trip and thank God for the opportunity! 

- Joe, Christina, & Caleb, Eau Claire, WI

Staying in Kauai has been a real pleasure, but residing in your home made it a treasure.  The love and care you provide radiates through each detail…beach towels, ice chest, sugar & condiments, guide books, and special notes! God has blessed you with this property and you are blessing others with it. Truly a good steward!

- Greg & Barbara, Denton, TX

Thank you for opening your home to us. You did a great job making this place feel like home away from home.  The beautiful sunrises off the beach are a treasure not to be missed!  Our suggested “must do” list includes snorkeling at  Tunnels Beach and Po’ipu, visiting Polihale Beach, the Waimea Canyon, Wailua Falls, and hiking Sleeping Giant. We will definitely be back to Riverside Aloha! 

- Dave, Karie, Payton & Grifin, Los Angeles, CA

This was our first visit to Kauai. Had a great time, saw a lot of sites in our week here. On Tunnels Beach we saw a monk seal and the Waimea Canyon was awesome! Came here to celebrate 30 years of marriage with my spouse and my sister and her husband. It was something we will always remember - truly awesome!

-Dave & Barb, Gibbon, MN
and Duane & Cheryl, Waseca, MN

This is our second time staying in F 7; 16 days this time! We have done many fun things. We visited Waimea Canyon again and the beautiful secluded Polihale Beach. We went hiking on the Kalalau Trail, the Kuilau Trail, and along the Maha'ulepu Coastline, during which we saw whales, monk seals, and sea turtles. We climbed on lava rocks at the Secret Lava Pools and the Pools of Mokolea. Our favorite beach for sunning and snorkeling was Poipu Beach, and our favorite one for boogie-boarding was Kealia Beach. The luau, massage, and whale watching tour were also great. We like having the patio door open during the evenings to listen to the waves. We are returning home relaxed. Hang loose!

- Larry & Jennifer, Hudson, WI

This is our first trip to Kauai and we were thrilled with the beauty of the sunrise, the glory of the beaches and the  magnificent views we encountered. The Secret Beach was great. This condo F 7 is warm, inviting and made for comfort! Sleeping outside, listening to the ocean, walking the beach, and seeing the pair of black swans was a joy to be held. God Bless you all!

We have shared precious family memories, and made some new ones. Our Kauai traditions began in the 80’s and over the year’s special friends remain and deepens and adds richness to the visit. The whales put on a show and the tide pools were a busy home to several fish. With warm Aloha wishes to you, we hope to return.

We have spent the past week relaxing at Riverside Aloha. The condo is well-equipped and has excellent ocean views. We especially enjoyed boogie-boarding at Kealia Beach and Hanalei Bay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.  It was clean, quiet, and felt like home – with a better view! Our favorite activities were: helicopter ride, zip line tour, hiking the first two miles of the  NaPali Coast, and spending time at Ke’e Beach and Maha’ulepu Beach. Thanks for the tip about Calvary Chapel Kauai.  We enjoyed the worship service Thank you and God Bless You.

Top places we recommend (restaurants) Duke’s, Bobby V’s, Kalypso, Eggberts, Puka Dogs, Jo-Jo’s  Shaved Ice, & Sushi Bushito; (shopping) Coconut Marketplace.

- Leroy & Shirley, Victoria, BC and Stock & Val, Kelowna, BC

We came back for a third time to F 7.  We visited many of the same beaches we did a year ago. We hiked three trails, Powerline, Sleeping Giant, and the Kalalau Trail back to Hanakapi’ai Falls.  We had a very relaxing and peaceful vacation with great weather, sunny and temperatures in the 80’s.  We look forward to next time! 

- Larry & Jennifer, Hudson, WI

This was our 4th time at (Riverside Aloha) F 7! As always, we enjoyed our stay! Life is good here!

-The King's

This was our first visit to Kauai. We spend 10 days at the condo and visited many places. Two of our favorites were Queen's Pond and Secret Beach. Both were a lot of effort, but well worth the trek. A short distance north of the condo we had a monk seal come out of the water to sun himself. We had seen one at Poipu Beach, but to have one on the beach this close to the condo was a real treat. This certainly was a refreshing break from the Wisconsin winter!

Jerry & Judy, Plover, WI

We're here for our daughter's wedding. Very lovely at the botanical gardens. Beautiful area of Hawaii, this Kauai! Enjoyed snorkeling, helicopter ride, eating out…Thank you!

- Dean & Jane, Sartell, MN

 My daughter, her husband, and my 10 year old granddaughter and I spent a perfect week here. It has been one of our best vacations. It is so nice to be able to cook some meals here. We loved Hanalei Bay for boogie boarding and everyone must have the breakfast buffet at St. Regis in Princeville sitting outside on the lanai overlooking Hanalei Bay – wow! The Waimea Canyon, Poipu Beach, and hiking were favorites as well. We will definitely come back again!

- Marcia R, St. Cloud, MN and Donn, Maronda, & McKenna,

What have we enjoyed most about this vacation home? The View! The View! The View! We have enjoyed whale watching, swimming, snorkeling, and eating! Please don't commercialize this sacred island. Keep it just the way it is! We love it!

- George & Beverly, Fort Wayne, Indiana

We have stayed here for 7 days, and we have truly enjoyed this place! This windy and green island has welcomed us and we have strolled along the shore. We are now to explore other places on the island before we go back to Sweden again.

- Tommy & Marina and Family, Sweden

We have been here 2 weeks enjoying Kauai's beautiful beaches and scenery. We explored the lava pools at Secret Beach, jumped around in the huge waves at Polihale Beach, and went boogie boarding at Hanalei Bay. the views from Waimea Canyon are incredible. We will be back!

- Larry & Jennifer, Woodbury, Minnesota

We were fortunate enough to enjoy nine great days at Riverside Aloha. Traveled to many beaches and waterfalls. Sighted numerous whales from the room. Absolutely fabulous accommodations!


- The Lindquist’s and Andrens

 We were married on the beach right outside this Villa! The Pastor was Matt Higa of New Hope Church and the photographer was Ralph Nishimoto of Pono Studio. . .  We saw Waimea Canyon, Poipu Beach, and the North side of the island. We did the Na Pali Coast sunset dinner. We saw whales and dolphins, it was great. The beach was great just to walk along, and we did a little snorkeling. The helicopter tour was incredible, what a beautiful island. What a great place to stay!

- (Riverside Aloha Newlyweds) Tony and Rose, Hastings MN

We were delighted to stay in this villa. It was just perfect for the three of us. Our two year old daughter loved watching the chickens and birds outside. Everything was nice and clean. We are thinking about coming back!

 We loved our stay at Riverside Aloha. While we were here we got married at Lihue Lutheran Church. We enjoyed the island and felt blessed to have such a nice place to stay.

- (Riverside Aloha Newlyweds) Ricky & Lisa, Lodi, CA

This is our secon visit this year to F7 and we enjoyed it very much. During our visit we finally found the property we've been looking for, and we look forward to building our future home. Until then we will continue to visit Kauai regularly and F7 will be our choice. Thanks for upgrading the lanai furniture; it dining "al fresco" even more enjoyable! Mahalo!

- The Kings

 We enjoyed our stay at Riverside Aloha very much. Didn't know what to expect of Hawaii, but could not have been better. Kauai is a wonderful island with its green, green look. Hope to return sometime.

- Ken & Flo, Sauk Centre, MN

Thank you Jeanette and Jim for sharing Riverside Aloha with us! We spent a wonderful 12 days here with our dear friends Nancy and Dave. Our favorite outings were to Poipu Beach (and the Broiler for Happy Hour), Shipwreck Beach, the Beach House restaurant (amazing food and view), the hike up Kuilau Trail, and walking the beach to Lydgate Park. Our stay here was fabulous. The condo is great and we're here with our best friends for Nancy and Janine's birthdays. What a great life!

- Roger & Janine, Richfield, MN

 This was our third time at F 7! As always we enjoyed our stay. We finally found the property we wanted with mountain and ocean views, so all we need to do now is build a house! Our dream of living on Kauai is closer now to coming to reality. Aloha until next time.
