"We loved being at Gilligan's by Moloa'a Bay. The close location to the beach is wonderful. Though we’ve explored Moloa’a Bay many times, this week we found ourselves often at the reef on the north side of the bay rather than our usual place at the reef on the south side - both good, each one different. LOVED the outdoor shower and the solar hot water. The living space is so comfortable - light and airy with the tall ceiling. The kitchen is great - everything we need there for we two.
We really like being out of the main tourist zones, and Gilligan's is perfect - a relaxing walk to the beach - one of my favorite places on the planet. And be sure to go to nearby Larson's Beach as you might see some Monk seals. Explore any of the beaches on this magnificent northeast corner of Kauai - you won't be disappointed!
We’d love to visit Gilligan’s again sometime!"

"First of all, this house is what a house in Hawaii should be. Open, airy, beautifully landscaped, and a killer wrap-around porch. The beach is very close, and it's wonderful to go to sleep to the sounds of the ocean.
Alas, our 10-day vacation in paradise came to a sad end three days later due to an injury.
Darlene, who manages the property, was so kind and so supportive! She suggested some local medical professionals, and was always there when we needed help with things (we locked ourselves out! A very wonderful neighbor had a spare key.) In the end, these people even refunded a portion of the rent, which they did not have to do - I'm sure they couldn't have rented it in that short amount of time.
This kind of customer care is what you can only hope for when you don't know who you're dealing with. It should always be an important consideration in choosing a VRBO.
Darlene, I thank you for your kind words in your note to me."

"We stayed for two weeks. It was our second stay in two years.
It offers you a real sense of living on Kauai. Better then a condo or hotel, for sure. It rained every day but two. It a 'nice rain' that doesn't last all day.
Remote location. No close neighbors.
10 minute walk to a virtually empty beach. Drive there. Few places to park, but we had no problem.
Beautiful, quiet grounds.
Cheryl and Mike are very accommodating.
Would be better with a full kitchen
Remote location. Not close to any shopping which is about a 20 minutes car ride. You can only walk to the beach (which ain't bad).
No washer/dryer. Use the sink.
Load up groceries at Safeway on your way from the airport or you'll be driving to Foodland in Princeville everyday. And that gets old fast.
Leave your Hawaiian shirts, shoes, long pants at home. You won't wear any of it. Cook on the outside grill. Because of high prices, we suggest chicken, scrimp, perhaps pork. Stay away from Steaks, processed food, diary products. They are all priced too high. We spent about $300 on food for the 2 of us.
Bring bug spray!
Dining out: Drink your cocktails at home if you don't want to spend $10++ for a drink. My average 'eating out' bill was always $100+ for dinner, and about $50 for lunch (nice places). The St Regis hotel in Princeville will set you back over $200++ for 2 (we had 50% off, so not so bad).
Use the farmer's market in Hanalai."

"My family and I stayed at the Shangrila at the end of August. My husband and I were there 2 years ago, so when the family decided to go to Kauai, we didn't hesitate to book the Shangrila! Such an amazing property - so private, so beautiful, well stocked, complete paradise! We ate on the lanai every night, and spent our evenings in the pool with the frogs! Cheryl and Mike are incredible hosts, and treat us like family. This is definitely the place to stay when in Kauai - you couldn't find a better place!!"
