  • You have no idea...

    "...how wonderful this property is. We're not easily impressed. We've stayed at all the major Hawaii resorts - Four Seasons, Fairmont, Princeville, etc. We've traveled the world and enjoyed rental properties from Whistler to Tuscany. We've never had a vacation like this. You can tell a lot about a property's owners by the arrival experience. After a 4 hour delay on an inbound aircraft, I'd figured Joe and Beth might not be around at the time we'd proposed. Upon arrival in LIH they'd sent the first text message to me and letting me know that they'd be waiting for us even though we were running late. Not only were they at the house when we arrived, Joe helped me bring in all the luggage (2 cars, 10 people) and Beth was showing my wife around the property - they stayed for almost an hour answering all our questions and making sure we were comfortable. They went out of their way to make sure our arrival was not only smooth, but 100% worry-free. During the stay, Joe and Beth were never more than a text away, helping me figure out little details about the house, or recommending a local hike or lunch spot. We really didn't need much support, and frankly we didn't really end up leaving the house much. When you've got such a beautiful location with what's basically your own private beach and acres of resort-quality grounds, why leave? Sure, we did a few hikes, but we spent countless hours playing soccer in the huge manicured yard, or lounging in the hammock, or snorkeling in front of the house. Every night we enjoyed (yes, enjoyed!) cooking in the ridiculously nice kitchen or on the massive grill, while the kids chased each other and then we sat down for a 10-person dinner at the beautiful table. The house was perfect for kids (we had 5 of them ages 2-10) and i don't think I ever heard one say that they were bored. Probably the best testament of all - I'm not sure the TV was on for more than a few hours over the entire week - including the Super Bowl... To close, it's been a month or two since our trip, and I still find myself thinking back to those days on the massive porch, enjoying the sunset, watching the kids enjoy the hot tub while I tend the grill, and I can honestly say with out a single doubt, this was the best vacation we've had in our entire lives. We'll be back for sure. You'd be hard pressed to find a better property in all the islands, and I challenge you not to have the time of your lives here. Thank you Joe & Beth!"

  • Looking for Privacy, Romance and Fantastic Ocean Front Views? Look No Further.

    "This cottage is not about luxury, it is about comfort, relaxation and a very reasonable rate. The house is very clean and stocked with everything you'll need and more. Snorkeling, swimming, spear fishing, paddle boarding and beach combing are excellent here and just steps away. Very little effort is needed to negotiate the sea wall to access beach. We spent our first week in my time share and explored the island everyday. However, once we arrived at the cottage we only left twice to get fresh food. I was planning to propose to my love mid-week but was so inspired by the feeling I got 30 minutes into our stay I pulled out the ring and dropped to a knee. She had little option but to say yes as she had the same feeling. Mahalo Nui Loa for making this our most romantic and best Kauai vacation ever! We'll definitely stay here again."

  • Fabulous Beach House For A Group Vacation

    "Our group of six had a great time at this property, and all agreed that, in all our many trips to Kauai (for some spanning over 30 years), it was our favorite accommodation. With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, I think the property works best for a group of between five and eight. The pictures do not capture how stunningly beautiful the view of the beach is from the large dining table, living room and deck – all are great gathering places and, at this time of year, also wonderful for whale viewing. The kitchen has all you need to prepare group meals, and there is a barbecue on the deck for preparing the usually available local fresh fish (best place for fish continues to be the Fish Express in Lihue). As with many (most) beach houses, upkeep and fix-it availability are key issues when considering a rental. Roger Lasky, who has been the caretaker for this property for the past seven years, lives within ten minutes of the property and was very responsive and capable in assisting us with minor fix-up details. He’s a great guy and also a good source of information about local resources and things to do. Anahola Beach where the property is a half-a-mile sandy beach on a nice bay that, depending on conditions, can be good for swimming, boogie-boarding, kayaking, paddle boarding or other water activities. The houses along the beach appear to be equally occupied by residents and vacation renters. We found people to be friendly, and the remarkable little beach dog, Sardine, who lives next door, the friendliest of all (Sardine of Anahola has a well-deserved local rep for being friendly & has her own Facebook page). Away from the beach, the rest of the small town is working-class residents. For provisioning or restaurants, you should probably plan on making the 5-10 minute drive into Kapaa. Many thanks again to the owner and Mr. Lasky for a great vacation experience."

  • Beautiful and Comfortable

    "We very much enjoyed our stay in this cottage. It was very spacious. We loved having our own large front yard with a view. There's a hammock in the shade, which was a great nap experience! Multiple dining tables outside so we could enjoy the view over breakfast. All furniture was comfortable. The layout of the unit is very private. In fact, it is the most private stay we've had on the island, which gives it even more the feeling that it's your own home for the stay. Giving it a 4 star not because it didn't feel like a 5 star stay. If you are the kind of person that likes only the newest appliances, a dishwasher, granite counter tops, and a/c, this isn't exactly what you're looking for. If you don't need those things, it doesn't get much better than this! Also, a shout out to Sissy, the beautiful dog that visited every morning and evening. She is the sweetest dog with a whole lot of love to share. Loved having her visits."
