Recent Kilauea reviews

  • Wow!

    "We stayed for 6 days with 7 adults and had a fantastic time. This place is amazing! It is really like having your own private resort. Each bedroom is a private suite and there is ample space in the kitchen and public areas. We enjoyed the pool and waterside, though stayed busy enough that we didn't use them as much as we thought we would. Duane was very attentive and willing to help with any needs. For instance, the projector in the theater room was not working initially, but he got it fixed right away. He also took us to a 'secret' snorkeling spot that we would never have found otherwise. It is hard to imagine how it could have been any better(well, maybe if it was less money;-)). With all that was there, we would not have gotten bored for a long time and wished we could have stayed longer. We also wished that the grand kids were there to enjoy it. Maybe next time! Would definitely recommend it."

  • Best of the Garden Isle

    "We found this cottage quite by accident, after an exhaustive search, and being told there were no places left, the universe guided us towards our own little piece of paradise. This was our first trip to the Islands, and not only did we decide on the most glorious of the chain in Kauai, but we also found a slice of heaven in Kilauea, that really did become our home away from home for 10 days. From the first moment we drove up and walked into the pristine and immaculately cleaned cottage, to finding every possible need had been anticipated and provided for in the kitchen, we knew this place was going to augment our enjoyment. The little things spoke volumes to the desire of the owners to make sure our enjoyment was at the forefront of their minds. Filled with Aloha spirit, we fell in love with both the cottage and the island. The aroma of the lush vegetation carried into the room by the gentle ocean breeze; The invigorating feel of a refreshing outdoor shower in the privacy of the enclosed lanai; and the sense of amazement and wonderment that overcame us sitting on the patio as the night sky unveiled a brilliant tapestry of stars unencumbered by city lights, made this most romantic place we could ever imagine. We never did see the owners, but saw the results of their attention to detail in the everyday touches. We also enjoyed our visits from the official ambassador, the four legged valet that brightened our day. From our base of operations nestles between the majestic mountains, and the inviting shoreline, we ventured forth each day to uncover the wondrous adventures the island had for us. Coffee at the little shop in Kilauea, complete with fresh in-store baked bread, to unwinding on the beaches of Hanalei, and snorkeling at the Koloa launch helped rejuvenate us body, mind and spirit. We dined at lunch trucks, and drove the remote trails that led us on one adventure after another, and at night we returned to our special home away from home. We took advantage of the Aloha spirit that fills you in this special destination, to get engaged on a beach at night. I can only dream that we will return to celebrate our special day on the Garden Island."

  • Great Cottage, Great Location

    "This is an extremely well kept cottage central to everything on the North and East Coasts of Kauai. The cottage is on expansive grounds which are beautiful to wander around in their own right. Great views are just steps away from the cottages front door. Snowflake, the resident porch cat, is a wonderful greeter whether coming home from a hike or dinner. The cottage is secluded by many large natural hedges planted around it letting you enjoy some solitude but know that the owners live on site and there is another rental on the property. Catherine and Allan are superb hosts: informative, friendly, and caring. They are skilled in the art of being there when you need them but never even remotely overbearing or invasive. Finally, the cottage is well equipped to cook all meals and even has a washer dryer for those with longer stays. The description and pictures are very accurate and I would recommend this rental! Several points for the first time Kauai traveler which are completely out of control of Catherine and Alan so I did not count this in the evaluation: • Roosters. They are everywhere and they crow all day and night long. Bring ear plugs or use the convenient floor fan provided in the cottage for white noise. • The cottage is not near the beach, instead it is tucked away in a very quiet, very beautiful neighborhood. • Mosquitoes. The trade winds were not very active during some of our stay and the mosquitoes were bad. They prevented us from really enjoying the cottages front porch without ample bug repellent. We will certainly consider another stay at the Aloha Sunset Cottage!"

  • Great place to stay

    "Recently had a family vacation and we stayed here for a couple of nights during summer. The house was beautiful and much more than we expected. It was huge and had a great kitchen and patio that we had dinner on every night. The property is also very large and had a swing set, trampoline and a basketball court. The owners were very nice and gave us suggestions for where to eat and shop as well as directions to a private beach very close to the house. It feels like real Hawaii, not touristy at all. You have a lot of privacy since your neighbors are barely in sight. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be staying again. Thank you!"

Kilauea Travel Tips

Kilauea Vacation Rentals Are Perfect for Explorers

The Hawaiian island of Kauai is an explorer’s paradise. If you an independent traveler seeking adventure, opt for Kilauea vacation rentals. A Kauai lodging choice available direct from the owner is a perfect base to explore this incredible vacation destination. These North Shore vacation rentals put you right where you need to be for all that the island of Kauai has to offer.

Kilauea Vacation Rentals in the “Guava Capital of the World”

The area of Kilauea is situated on the north coast of Kauai; travelers should be aware that there is a Kilauea on the Big Island of Hawaii also. Take care not to confuse the two destinations! This one is renowned for its guava plantations and active volcanoes. North Shore vacation rentals are in an area of The Garden Isle, also dubbed the “Guava Capital of the World.” Its high rainfall and sunshine produces lush surroundings where visitors find an ideal year-round destination. Many visitors to Kilauea vacation rentals come here to visit the volcanoes, some of which are still active. Near your Kauai lodging choice is Kilauea Point where the Kilauea Lighthouse stands.

North Shore Vacation Rentals Have Beaches for Everyone

Visitors to Kilauea vacation rentals find exceptional beaches, each with their own character. Lumahai Beach is a particular favorite for those seeking a quiet day of sunbathing and swimming. Further along the coast is Po’ipu and Kee Beach, noted for some great snorkeling. When you stay in a Kauai lodging option, you can spend many hours at Lydgate State Park hunting through the lava rock pools. North Shore vacation rentals are perfect for those seeking sandy beaches with as much, or as little, activity as desired.

Kauai Lodging Allows You to Visit the Land that Time Forgot

For stunning scenery, visitors to Kauai lodging visit Napali Coast State Park. This natural wonder is a place where time has stood still. The few inhabitants here live very much the way they have for centuries. North Shore vacation rentals are set in some of the most beautiful landscape imaginable, with the area's mountains and cliff areas seemingly rising directly from the ocean. Visitors to Kilauea vacation rentals find delightful holidays where they can hunt waterfalls, visit beaches and do so much more.
