Kekaha cottage description
The Akialoa Beach Property is located on the sunny, West side of Kauai in Kekaha, across from one of the most beautiful stretches of white sand beaches in the world. Kekaha is an old Hawaii sugar plantation town and the gateway to the Waimea Canyon, described by Mark Twain as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.
Three miles to the East of the Akialoa Beach Property and Cottage is Waimea Town, where Captain Cook first landed in September 20, 1778. Waimea Town is a bustling little town with two supermarkets (Ishihara's Market and Big Save), two banks, a credit union, a video rental store, a movie theatre and several good restaurants.
Enjoy your next Hawaii vacation in Kekaha where the pace is relaxed and similiar to "Old Hawaii". The Akialoa Beach Property offers comfortable ocean view accommodations with a variety of amenities. Relax and enjoy the swimming pool or stroll on the miles of secluded white sand beach just steps from your front door.
The Akialoa Cottage vacation rental is a three bedroom, two bath home located across the street from the beach in Kekaha, on Kauai's West side. The cottage is air-conditioned, has a fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, covered parking, a large deck area around the refreshing in-ground pool and a lawn area with inviting hammocks hung between coconut palms - for your relaxing pleasure.

Both pros and cons
Both pros and cons
The photos of this cottage are quite deceiving; it's signficantly more shabby than it appears. However, the fun our grandkids had in the pool offset any disadvantages to the rental. The furniture in the cottage is not in great shape, so we didn't need to worry about the kids sitting on it with damp clothing. The view is fantastic, although the beach across the street is unusable. You do need to drive a short distance for a beach, and a longer distance for a safe baby beach. We loved that there were 2 bathrooms in the cottage, one being ensuite to a bedroom that is obviously a converted carport. The inside of the cottage was clean, but except for the pool area, the yard was not usuable for the kids as it was pretty dirty. Probably the biggest negative of the cottage is the noise level on the street. There was constant, extremely noisy traffic all night long. We kept the "fan only" on the air conditioning units at night, but that still couldn't drown out the noise of cars racing up and down the side street. All in all, we had a great time here but wouldn't rent this again due to the negatives.

Mom's 80th Celebration
8 of my family (age 30-80) rented the main house for 10 days in January 2012. Many differing interests so we were happy to have some separation space for folks who wanted to sleep in vs. early risers. We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations. The house was totally clean. We had one issue with a slipping toilet seat that was fixed pronto. We found ourselves also cooking most nights and had plenty of room for everyone upstairs, the table sat 8 easily and there were 2 barstools if we had needed them. 2 King bedrooms, 1 double twin bedroom (we put the beds together to make a king), along with 2 hideabeds allowed comfortable sleeping for everyone. 3 ½ bathrooms gave everyone plenty of room for their “stuff”. Laundry on both floors made it very convenient. We did not have an outside table upstairs; that would have been nice. But we still spent most sunsets there sipping our umbrella drinks and admiring the skies. The pool was a little chilly, but some of us still made use of it, no problems there. The BBQ worked well and we used it. No hammock!! But I suspect it will be re-hung when the weather gets nicer. This is on the west side of the island, where things are more laid back. If you’re looking for parties, this isn’t the place. But for relaxing and taking time out, it was wonderful. We still drove to all the other sites and really appreciated it when we returned “home”. Thank you, Kendall and all, for making my mom’s BD a great celebration.

My family and I rented the house in early November. The house was as it appeared on the site. Joel and Kendall couldn't have been more accomodating. The house was one of the cleanest rental properties we have visited. The house was well furnished to meet all our needs during our 2 week stay. We cooked most of our meals, so we utilized most of the kitchen as well as the grill outside. The pool was kept very clean as well. We will definitely be back!

Owner response: Mahalo Danielle! We look forward to your return to beautiful Kauai. Warm Regards, Kendall
My husband, myself and our three teenage children had a wonderful fun filled time at the cottage. It was wonderful to have our own home complete with swimming pool and beach to relax at. Our hosts and stand in hosts, Monica and Sonny, made us feel part of the family. We are filled with many happy memories of our time in paradise. Thank you!
