  • 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!"

  • Perfect Kauai experience

    "We loved the Jungle Bee. You have to walk a fair distance down a hill to the beach, but it is a breathtakingly beautiful beach. I was worried that the location would be too remote, but ended up loving the seclusion. It was a wonderful break from the other touristy locations. The main house is very comfortable and the place where we did a fair amount of cooking in the spacious, well appointed kitchen. The additional cottage was a real treat - something special. Two adults and two teenagers were all very happy with the choice."

  • Heavenly Cottage

    "Our first experience booking with VRBO, our first visit to Kauai (actually first visit to Hawaii itself), and we couldn't have been happier! The Cottage in the Forest is everything you read in the reviews, and the details on VRBO...and everything you see in the photos shown in the listing! AND MORE! Because when you're there, you add in the fresh wonderful smells of the lush forest,plants, and flowers, as well as the sounds of the birds, rain at night, etc. It was beyond what we could have hoped for. We weren't sure what the road '3 miles back in' would be turned out to be one of the LOVELIEST 3 miles on Kauai! It's a beautiful 'landscaped' garden of a drive...with views of mountains both coming and going, and the road is nicely paved. The personal gated entry/drive to Susan's cottage is equally lovely. The cottage was just perfect for us! We LOVED the comfy cozy feel of it all..yet it was so clean, well-maintained, comfortable bed...all with that 'island feel'.. and had everything we could have needed, and more! We didn't want the 'cold/modern/stiff look or feel of highrise hotels and condos. This cottage is exactly the opposite of that, and exactly the kind of place we pictured for our visit to the "Garden Island" of Kauai! The setting is private, serene, and beautiful. Seeing the lush surroundings, out the floor to ceiling windows everywhere we turned made us feel we were part of the 'scenery'. We had all the slatted windows (high, low and in-between, open every night and never slept better. The claw foot tub and many windows in the bathroom, as well as the outdoor shower, made it easy to slow down, relax, and enjoy the 'island life' while we were there. We spent our days checking out everything we could on Kauai (Helicopter ride to the Na'Pali coast, drive up Waimea Canyon, Poipu Beach, End of the Road (Ke'e Beach, Tunnels, Bali Hai,) the sweetest town...Hanalei ....and though our days were full and non-stop, we looked forward to the evening drive back to the Cottage in the Forest and the peace and quiet we knew was waiting for us. Susan was so wonderful to work with, instant replies, easy booking and payments, and warmly welcomed us when we arrived. We highly recommend Susan's "Cottage in the Forest", and look forward to returning some day!!"

  • Great place to stay

    "My wife & I had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this cottage. The kitchen is grand with all the utensils need and a nice BBQ. The bedroom is bright and airy. Catharine & Allan are wonderful to chat with about local things to do. We hope to go back someday soon!"
