"My husband and I were going to Kauai for the third time, and had always stayed on the south side of the island. We thought it would be fun to mix it up and stay 5 nights on the north side and selected this lovely retreat to for our stay. The room was neat and clean, the bathroom huge and the lanai a great place to sit and relax. The only drawback for me was the bugs. The critters thought I made a tasty snack and feasted on me all night. At the end of the five days my legs looked like I had small pox! Take bug spray. There is plenty to do and see on the north side. There are several wonderful beaches to snorkel at and we swam with the turtles at Annini Beach. There are plenty of places to eat, and the food is not unreasonably priced. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful (except their kitty killed a chicken...on the lanai!!) get-away. Oh yes, be prepared for the geckos too. The lizards are everywhere and make the most alarming sound in the middle of the night!! Mahalo for opening your house to us, we loved our stay!"

"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."

"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!"

"We came to Kauai for 13 days for our daughter's wedding which was on the South Shore. It was recommended that we spend some time up north. We were lucky to find this little hideaway. Clean/comfortable, just the right size & with the kitchen and washer/dryer, it was perfect for us. Close to good beaches, restaurants and shopping. Early-morning roosters not a problem, I always bring earplugs when traveling :-) Quick response from owners was appreciated when we had a question. If we ever get back to Kauai we will surely want to stay at the Cocohut!"
