Great small cottage
"My husband and I picked this cottage so that he could try fishing north shore Kauai beaches while I enjoyed the jungle scenery. The location was perfect for both activities, and we made good use of the provided beach chairs. Access to several beaches was just a short drive. Having a washer and dryer and a small kitchen was great, and we loved the privacy (even with another family in the adjoining larger cottage), and the private porch. We would have liked a nightlight or another way to illuminate the step down into the bedroom for moving about at night, but we appreciated the air conditioner for those of us from cooler climes. The friendly tomcat living under the cottage was also a plus for us and we enjoyed him. The setting was very lush and verdant and the bushes screened the cottage from the nearby road quite well. We would definitely recommend this little cottage (good for a couple) and would stay here again."

"My husband and I spent the last 5 nights of our honeymoon at Nohonani. We fell in love with the North Shore of Kauai and felt that we were truly able to relax once we arrived at the house.
The expansive property is amazing - lush, very private, and surrounded by beautiful mountains.
The interior of the house was very clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was perfect for us as we cooked many of our own meals and enjoyed sitting out on the lanai. The view from the hammock is not to be forgotten! Having a good supply of tupperware was great for leftovers and packing snacks for hiking/beach days.
We were really looking forward to hiking on the Kalalau Trail, so the proximity to Ke'e beach (and the trailhead) was perfect. We lucked out with weather while we were there, with a perfectly sunny day for our time on the trail.
Tunnels beach is also very nearby and a beautiful spot for snorkeling, we were even lucky enough to see a monk seal (at a safe distance). The trip into the town of Hanalei is nice and quick, with lots of shops, a grocery store, and tasty food options.
The only downside, as others have noted - the dogs. We sat outside on our first evening for a beautiful dinner together, only to be serenaded (in surround sound) by the kennels on both sides of the property. As awful as it was, it was actually quite comedic. Throughout our stay, we found that there were long stretches of time during the morning/day that we were able to spend at the house without hearing a peep from the dogs. The evenings were typically the worst for the barking, however at night time we closed all the windows and got the fans going - this kept us cool enough to sleep and kept out any noise from the dogs.
Lastly, we found the bed to be quite creaky and felt pretty unstable - the bed frame may be due for an update!
Overall, we would highly recommend Nohonani for your time in Kauai :)"

"My husband and I had a lovely stay at Micco's cottage! We loved watching the birds from the lanai, and listening to the rain which always stopped miraculously by the time we were ready to head to the beach. :) We also loved the close walk to Hanalei bay. We stayed for 2 weeks and our first week we used for hiking/Kalalau and exploring - this is a wonderful place for a home base if you're exploring the island! Our second week we took advantage of how close our cottage was to the ocean and surfed/swam the beautiful bay every day.
The cottage is simple but has all the amenities you need - we cooked many nights in the kitchenette. We had a few visitors (ants) but Micco dealt with it so quickly, there was someone by to begin dealing with the issue within 24 hours, and they were gone soon after. One can expect a visitor or two in a tropical climate! :)
I would very much recommend staying here. It was a perfect place for a relaxing, simple honeymoon, or a jump off point for surfing and adventure. Thanks for the great stay!!"

"This farmhouse had many wonderful features. The garden is amazing and the view from the backyard is picturesque. The upstairs bedrooms can get very hot during the day but the window air conditioners worked well to cool them before bed. We truly enjoyed the enclosed patio and bbq. About a 20 minute walk to St. Regis and 2 minute drive to Foodland."
