Hanalei cottage description
More or less 450 sq ft/42 sq m
A retreat, this cottage is a small but charming two room plantation green cottage with white trim that sleeps two. A great honeymoon retreat.
Rustic in its simplicity, this cottage was designed in the single wall construction popular during the 1930's and which has been lovingly restored with tropical ceiling fans in each room.
An open air cemented lanai covers most sides of the cottage
The kitchen is well supplied with dishes, utensils, pots and pans, table, chairs, a double deep sink, refrigerator, a two gas burner stove, and toaster oven.
Cool Spanish pavers tile the floors throughout. Custom cabinetry is found in both rooms. The indoor shower is attractively lined with alpine slate. A pedestal sink graces the bathroom.
The only bedroom has a queen sized bed, a radio/CD / MP 3 player with a compliment of CD's. There is a flat panel TV connected to cable. There is a DVD player and WIFI internet access.
To adjust you to the island pace and way of life, we have eliminated telephones. Most major cell phone carriers work.
Includes towels and linens.
The laundry area is shared with Rainbow House, with a private entrance giving you access to a tiled laundry area equipped with a washer and dryer.
Located conveniently more or less a block from the beach and town of Hanalei.

Not what we expected
Not what we expected
We booked the Surf Cottage for 6 nights. Truth be told, we did not stay there at all. The space was very clean and as described. Our issues with the rental: 1.) There are very few closing windows or securely locking doors in the space. Some of the screens were torn and overall, if safety is at all a concern…this space does not cut it. We are two women travelers and it did not feel safe at all. 2) The picture of the path to the beach should state that the path is about a 3 block walk away. If you want to be close to the water, this is not the place to be. The photos of the path and the view seemed a bit deceptive to us. Pictures should be of the actual property unless clearly stated otherwise. This may be a great place for some, but not us. We found it overpriced for what it delivered. Went and stayed at a last minute opening on the south shore, beautiful view of the ocean, on the water, full kitchen, plush place for $10 more a night. We were out the dough we spent on the surf cottage but had a wonderful time. Sometimes money isn't everything.

Owner response: Aloha, Thanks for taking the time to share your impressions during your very brief stay at the Cottage. Impressions like yours will help others choose the correct accommodations. In my near 20 years of renting this Cottage yours is the 3rd where clients found the accommodations not a good fit. At the moment have a couple who have returned several times over the years and enjoy the openness, rusticity and simplicity of the Cottage. I have captioned the photos that might mislead. Thank you. If you peruse my listing, I don't ever mention in my text that we are on the water. Thanks for alerting me about the torn screen. Will have my property manager look into it. Thanks again for taking the time, and helping the next traveler get it right. A hui hou, Micco P.S. By the way the Hanalei Inn is the only other place in Hanalei that is comparable in price to my Cottage. They do charge a wee bit more for a number of their smaller units. While their home page shows Hanalei Bay, they are not on the water.

About the owner: As a Cuban refugee I grew up on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where I learned to surf. It was surf that brought me to Kaua'i where in 1984 with my brother we founded Kayak Kauai. I love my customers and in 1994 I married one of them and now spend 1/2 the year in Los Angeles with all my feisty girls (it's a matriarchy) and the other half hands on with Kayak Kauai. Hope you enjoy your stay on Kaua'i, which has to rival any island on the globe. Saludos y Aloha, Micco
Why the Owner Chose Hanalei:
Ever since I sailed into Hanalei on a 48 foot ketch, it was my dream to live in Hanalei. It has been my good fortune to have a fun outdoor adventure business (i.e. KayakKauai.com) but to also be in biking/walking distance of my vacation rental/home and of course, the SURF! While much of Hawaii is quite beautiful, Hanalei is in a league of it's own.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I would say what I like overall about my property, is not having to get into a car each time I want to go to the beach. My property location is moments away from not only the bay but some great surf. The small town of Hanalei is also in walking distance. If you end staying at the Cottage, try this: Wake up and before the cobwebs of sleep are gone, walk in a Zombie like state to the beach, and take a dip in the ocean. It is an electric way to start the day. If you patronize Kayak Kaua'i, mention you are staying at the Cottage or Rainbow House for a 10% discount off any tour and/or rentals.
