Recent Hanalei reviews
Lovely Cottage near the Heart of Hanalei.
"Though we've stayed in and around Hanalei on our many trips to Kauai, it was our first stay at this cottage. Located slightly past "downtown" and near the first single lane bridge that takes you to all the north shore beaches, it's tucked away just off a small street on the mauka side of the island. We found the cottage to be incredibly clean, bright and nicely updated. There's no A/C (as is typical) but plenty of airflow when you open windows and sliding doors. The upstairs lanai was a favorite spot for us to enjoy either breakfast or lunch outside and the king-size bed was quite comfortable. The house also has plenty of things for the beach: towels, mats, chairs, coolers, etc. I did find out the hard way after jumping into the shower that there was no bar soap provided. After a search of the house, my husband found some liquid hand soap in an upper kitchen cabinet which sufficed until we could purchase something better. Also, neither hair dryer was in working condition but after a call to the property manager, we purchased one and were reimbursed. We were also told later that bar soap would be provided for future guests (trust me, you'll appreciate this)."

"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!)."

"My wife and I, along with my brother and sister-in-law, enjoyed staying at this beautifully-appointed home (one block from the beach) so much so that we would love to stay there again on our next vacation to Hanalei. The house is immaculate, with so many fine touches, including an open-air dining room, a magnificent contemporary kitchen, two lovely bedrooms (with full baths), a large dining room, a gas barbecue grill, and high-class woodwork throughout. Our typical MO on Hawaiian vacations is to dine out most evenings, but with the combination of the kitchen and open-air dining room here, we cooked four of the five evenings, with absolutely no regrets. It's also just a 5-10 minute walk into town. So what's not to like? On a scale of 1-100, I'd rate this property a 95. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the occasional moving cars outside on Weke Road that are easy to hear, for those sleeping in the bedroom facing the street, particularly if you like to leave your windows open, which we do. Great to hear the ocean surf, not so great to hear the car engines."

"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."
