"We were looking for a quiet place near a quiet beach...this place was perfect for us! Up in the trees, we were surrounded by the sound of waves and birds while enjoying this simple but lovely place. Initially it seemed tricky to find, but the directions are very accurate. We discovered it a joy to be in a place between both ends of the island; it was half and hour north to Hanalei or half and hour south to Kapaa...and only 2 miles to a delightful juice bar which serves a yummy breakfast burrito and fresh fruit!!! When staying around the rental, we were only a few minutes walk to the beach; there were very few people on the beach ever, and it was a great place to sun or do some light swimming near the reefs. There are no lifeguards, but there are public beaches nearby that have places for more serious swimming and snorkeling. The kitchen was simple but adequate...we did simple cooking and baking; no freezer, but the fridge had plenty of room for us. No grocery store close by, (we grabbed food when we were in the larger towns) but fruit and egg stands were in the neighborhood. The rainy evenings we watched DVDs. There were lovely hikes in the area. The rental has wonderful books with ideas about hikes, beaches, places to eat and visit. The owners are private people and gave us plenty of privacy. We really loved this place and will be back again."

"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!"

"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!!"

"The house is so close to the Moloaa Bay which is just beautiful. So easy to just walk 30 seconds to catch a sunrise. The house has nice sized rooms and was very comfortable. There is no air but wonderful trade winds so we were very comfortable. There were even coolers we could use to make lunch and take with us as we ventured around the island. It was a good location for north side activities and not too far for even the south side activities. Peter was very helpful and very responsive. He had some great suggestions which we loved - Kauai Photo Tours and Titus Kinimakas Hawaiian School of Surfing. We enjoyed eating at the Lighthouse Bistro. It was a great place to stay."
