"My wife and I wanted a romantic getaway to celebrate our 30th anniversary and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The cottage was spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed. We used the kitchen for many of our meals and it was stocked with useful consumables (things you normally need, but don't purchase on the first go-around, like spices, oil/vinegar, etc.), upscale pots and pans, and all the appliances you would find in a well-stocked kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms bright and airy. The bathroom had plenty of towels and was stocked with soap and shampoo) and the living room was tastefully appointed. The windows throughout the house allowed tropical breezes to pass through, lending to a wonderful experience. We spent quite a bit of time on the deck enjoying the cool breezes as they rushed through the trees, listening to the surf and, at night, watching the clouds go by. Situated on top of the building, there are actually two cottages, but each has their own private entrance. And, since it is situated on the 4th floor, we also enjoyed privacy from other buildings nearby. Within walking distance, we found an intimate little beach (along with other, more public beaches), one of the top-rated restaurants on the island, and an upscale village shopping center with a market, restaurants, a drug store and plenty of little shops offering local mementos. Situated on the southern part of the island, we traveled to all points of the island (all of which were less than an hour away), and drank in the beauty and experiences that are Kauai. We spent the week biking, hiking, swimming, strolling - and had one of the most romantic times of our lives. One last thing - we've been to Hawaii, Oahu and Maui, and this is our very favorite island. It is green and lush throughout and retains the charm and feel of traditional Hawaiian life. Yet, you still have excellent roads and amenities (including Costco, Safeway, Home Depot, Kmart...). We will most definitely be back."
