"Hale Kokio is a fantastic getaway. In our experience, many VRBO properties look less amazing in person than they do in photographs, but this idyllic cottage is an exception. Photographs can't do it justice. The house is lovely; well maintained, gorgeous lush gardens all around, romantic and airy interior floor plan, plenty of towels (and even laundry - yay!). We enjoyed being serenaded by the roosters, and we especially appreciated the hot tub. You might not expect to want a hot tub in Hawaii, but it did sometimes get cold enough, and we went on a few very strenuous physical adventures that left us very grateful for a place to soak after a long day. Hale Kokio was clean, tastefully decorated, and the sort of environment that invites retreat. We absolutely loved it.
In terms of location, Hale Kokio is also the perfect mix of everything: a 5-10 minute drive from grocery stores, calm snorkel beach (Anini Beach Park - highly recommended), and good places for eating out. We drove a little farther to Hanalei on several occasions, and found Hale Kokio to be geographically ideal for exploring the places on the Kauai that interested us the most. It's a great fit for couples who are looking for a home base for exploring Kauai, and who aren't into hotels and beaches.
For us, the beauty and serenity of the house was a wonderful and ongoing highlight of the trip as a whole. If we come back to Kauai in the future, we will definitely stay here again. Thanks to Eleanor, Lisa, and Rob for a smooth booking and check-in process!"

"My wife and I just spent two weeks at Aloha Sunrise Cottage discovering beautiful Kaua'i at the end of Summer while reconnecting with nature, and even more importantly, ourselves.
Allan and Catherine are model hosts and the cottage is quiet and clean. The grounds are peaceful and beautiful, and we especially appreciated the fresh produce from the garden, avocados, grapefruit, limes and papaya as good as we've ever had. And as other reviewers here have mentioned, the pets are equally loving and hospitable!
The location is perfect for all of North Shore and East Coast, but Waimea and Koke'e Park and their impressive sights and activities are well within a day's trip, finishing with memorable sunset appetizers at Beach House in Po'ipu on the return trip.
Our major concern was not to spoil Kaua'i's magic with a commercial condo experience. At Aloha Sunrise Cottage, we achieved this magnificently! We would return without hesitation."

"If you are looking for the true Kauai experience this is it . Bruce and Susan were most welcoming and happily helped to make are stay perfect. The house is phenomenal and situated on manicured tropical gardens in the heart of a canyon where rainbows abound every morning just outside your bedroom window. It truly is a beautiful tropical sanctuary filled with peace. The house is situated perfectly to make use of all activities on the north shore and conveniently located to all beaches from local to tourist. The location opens up more of the North Shore for exploration, and dining also . In Kilauea don't forget the "Billy Holiday" at Pau Hana Pizza and the Ahi Tuna wrap at the Kilauea Fish Market then a beautiful sunset at the overlook down the road, and that's before you even hit Hanalei or Princeville' which is only 10 minutes away, It's double the fun. The price is the best part, this was our seventh trip to Kauai and by far the best value rental for the money. We have researched many properties and stayed in many areas in the past and finally found the perfect place."

"Jasmine Nights was the perfect retreat for me and my husband for our elopement. The grounds are gorgeous, the bed is super comfy, and Randy and Jill were incredible hosts. We loved having breakfast on the lanai, being escorted down the palm lined driveway by Nalu (a sweet lab), and hearing the breeze blow through the leaves outside. The location is perfect and the cottage has everything you need: kitchen supplies, basic spices, beach supplies (e.g., chairs, umbrella, towels, etc.), privacy, a big closet, earplugs and cleaning supplies. We really appreciated the washer and dryer as well! They certainly made unpacking once we got home a lot easier. We certainly hope to return! Book this gorgeous retreat now!"
