Coconut Cottage of Hanalei - The best around!
"When we made our plans to return to Hanalei last fall, we decided to try to find a home close to the beach, in a private location that was also affordable. Not an easy task. Most of what we considered close to the beach were either not affordable of if they were, not desirable. That is until we encountered the Coconut Cottage and Carolyn Barnes.
This home has it all! It was a few steps from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, completely surrounded by vegetation, extremely private and close enough to downtown we could hear the cheers from Calypso as the Patriots scored again.
Carolyn Barnes is extremely attentive to her guests and the condition of the Coconut Cottage. This is a beach property and is superbly maintained. When you arrive and you walk barefooted across the beautifully ceramic tiled floors, not as much as a pebble of sand can be felt under foot. Yes, it was that clean as was everything else! Coconut Cottage reflected pride in ownership throughout and Ms. Barnes’ overriding philosophy was reflected in everything about her wonderful home on Hanalei.
The pictures provided online reflect the actual condition of the home! What cannot be shown in the pictures is the wonderful time you will have should you select this amazing home in this most unique community."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Firstly, the service was great. We were able to get a crib, two bikes, sand toys, etc. all waiting for us when we arrived. The place is just the right size, beautifully put together and the location is amazing, on the beach and a short bike ride to Hanalei village. Can't wait to stay there again."

"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)."
