  • Emaculate home that has it all!

    "This was our 3rd time to Kauai with each stay on the North Shore. We had a larger group this time and this home fit us all perfectly. The home is fully updated, modern, and well taken care of. Everything was pristine and free of dust and dirt that you normally find in a lot of homes on the islands. The furniture was clean, not stained and comfortable to relax in. The kitchen was stocked with all the basics that you would need including a decent selection of spices and an extra fridge in the garage when you are overflowing from your Costco run. The garage also had buckets and sand toys for younger kids, sets of snorkeling gear, his & hers bikes, and half a dozen boogie boards. You can see a nice view of the mountains and the waterfalls cascading down them from the house or take a 5 minute walk down the street and watch the whales from the top of the cliff overlooking Queens bath (or hike down to Queens bath and enjoy a dip in the tidal pools.) The entire Princeville area is amazing. The beauty of this area and how relaxed it makes you feel is why we keep coming to Kauai. Less than a mile away (and easy walk) you have the St. Regis resort for spa treatments or to just enjoy a Mai Thai during sunsets on their Lanai overlooking the Hanalei bay. Or take a leisurely stroll on the walking path around the golf course to the Princeville shopping center where you can get your groceries at the Foodland (think Safeway or Albertsons.) In the same area is a public Library, mail center, a couple places to eat, some small shops, an Ace Hardware, and CJ's (a fancy sit-down to dinner restaurant.) Everything you need/want is a short walk, bike, or car ride away. I cannot not say enough about this property or the owner. I almost didn't want to write a review or say anything about this place for fear it will just bring more people and not leave any availability for me when I return! But John and his cleaning staff deserve it. They were wonderful! Easy to work with, quick responses, and bending over backwards to accommodate us, making sure our vacation was perfect. This is the only place we will come back to from now on."

  • the House of Joy is as advertised

    "We are just wrapping up a _one week stay here and are thoroughly satisfied with this little cottage. The combo dining room/lanai is where we've spent most of our time, as it brings the outside inside. The spacious back yard affords a good view of the mountains (when it's not raining), and allows use of a clothes line to dry clothes. The outdoor shower is a real plus. The beach is a short walk away, and it is easy biking into town. The kitchen amenities are certainly adequate; plenty of pots and pans. The Webber grill is handy to have. A previous guest said they left behind some beach chairs,but we couldn't find them. Internet connection a real convenience. A quiet neighborhood, except for the roosters."

  • Perfect

    "My husband and I just spent 3 nights in early November after an epic hike on the Kalalau Trail. The place is clean and and very quaint. We loved our stay! The cottage is very quiet except for the giant avocados that occasionally dropped on the roof! We spent our time walking to the beach, walking to town, or relaxing outside. If you want a small place in Hanalei, away from the Princeville scene, then this is the place."

  • Paradise in America's Paradise

    "Two weeks was not enough in this lovely place, oh, and the house was great, too! For a large family, ages 10 to 70, there was something for everyone. The house, island magic on stilts sits surrounded by a tropical paradise and beside a gurgling river. A wrap-around porch afforded all-day lounging and reading and for more active types, the proximity to beaches, shopping and hiking venues was perfect. Our family of cooks made use of all the carefully stocked cuboards and top quality appliances. No small thing were the great beds that made even sleep time enjoyable. Thank you for a wonderful first-time-in-Hawaii experience. Signed, Spoiled Forever"
