Just What We Needed
"Me and my friend came here for our relaxing adventurous getaway and enjoyed every minute. It's pretty far from the airport, but literally a perfect location if you want to locate off the grid. From the moment we stepped into the bungalow it felt like home! It's very peaceful and almost overwhelming the sounds of nature you hear all day and night. The switch on and off candles were a great touch for ambiance and made my dreams sweeter. We rotated beds every night since there are two that are right by the open windows and one stand alone queen bed closer to the bathroom (we definitely loved the beds located near the window best). It's very rare that u hear any disturbances aside from a car door closing. It was almost like I was sleeping with the Ocean waves or ambiance station on my Pandora app!
Last but not least, Dawn the hostess she was amazingly sweet and hospitable and we found ourselves talking to her for hours. So happy to have met her, such a warm person and empathetic. We will definitely be back with hopes to rent the whole bungalow :)"

"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 :)"

"Our family of 4 rented this house the week prior to Christmas - it was a wonderful rental with lots of space. While the kitchen was small it was well-equipped, you could not be closer to town while still blocks away from the beach/beach access. In rainy season the house can feel a little "damp" but otherwise it was clean and comfortable for our family.
Brian at Aloha Beach Vacation was a HUGE help in organizing our trip. I HIGHLY recommend working with them and their attentive services!"

"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!!"
