Recent Hanalei reviews
Blue Anini Cottage was PERFECT
"My husband and I just stayed at the Blue Anini Cottage for our honeymoon. I was very impressed. The most striking thing was how clean it was. Also spacious, nice bathroom/shower, and the bed was very comfortable. The lanai was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a meal or drink. We were awakened by roosters most mornings, but they're everywhere so just prepare yourself and know that most of the time they take breaks! The location was perfect--close to both Princeville and Hanalei. The grill, beach accessories, coffee, and macadamia nuts that were provided were a nice treat. We would definitely stay here again. As far as things in the area that we enjoyed, we found the grocery store in Princeville good for most of the things we wanted. We ate at Bouchon's in Hanalei twice--casual atmosphere with beautiful mountain views and great sushi for much less than we paid elsewhere. We also found the Mai Tai's at Tahiti Nui in Hanalei to be the best (as advertised!)."

"This was my second stay in Joan's home and 5th visit to Kaua'i - this time, we stayed for 2 weeks. It was an amazing vacation - with the proximity to Hanalei Bay and having a car, we had the best of all worlds, easy access to the beach and town by foot, and the vehicle for longer excursions (3 of us got certified in open water diving). There is nothing quite like Hanalei Bay and town - so peaceful, easy going, yet plenty of variety and things to do. Joan's home is comfortable, beautiful, perfectly located and set up with all the things you need for a great vacation (beach chairs, boogie boards, outdoor shower) - I especially love the kitchen and how stocked it is for just about any dish that you want to cook!
Mahalo Joan - we had an amazing time!"

"WOW! That's pretty much all I can say. I have read all the previous internet reviews and there was not a bad word to be said. Well it's true, there is nothing that I can criticize. Love it!! My kids (14 & 12) have said this is the best place you have ever booked. Do not hesitate in booking your vacation here. So quiet and peaceful, everything and more. Lucas and his booking system was very easy and no stress. I hope that future Dolphin Cottage guests can experience the same as we have, all the way from Australia."

"We read all other reviews and agree that they capture what we too experienced. We would only add that Smoky was a perfect host! He left us with as much space and privacy as we wanted yet was always available to help or advise- and we got great advice.
This is in a great location and is well-supplied (eg kitchen). We were attracted to Hanalei by its beauty and somewhat more remote location and we found lots of places for adventure and exploration. We are hikers and swimmers and the setting is perfect for both."
