"Our trip to Kaua'i was for a death in the family. We chose to stay on the west side of the islands. Perfect choice in this rental home. Preserved to the old planation homes, this unit reflects the days I remember growing up on the island. I will be forever grateful to the Hookano's for helping to make our trip an enjoyable one under the circumstances. Very airy, comfortable, roomy and so much more. Easy access to the beach, main road for easy travel. Clean with all the amenities you could want. This home was so much better than a 5 star hotel!!!! We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to all our family and friends that visit the islands. Mahalo nui loa, a hui hou."

"We absolutely loved this cottage! Although the West side of the island tends to be a bit warmer and less rainy, this spot is tourist free and old-style island living. As a returning resident of the islands, I wouldn't want a condo or hotel. We loved the privacy of the grounds, the plumeria and banana trees and the hibiscus hedges screening the front.
The outdoor shower was wonderful! Nothing like being under blue Hawaiian skies, watching the clouds, palm trees and Monarch butterflies in the Crown Flower bushes from the lot behind the unit.
The interior of the unit was very welcoming. The living area was so relaxing at the end of the day, and the bed in the "master" was wonderful. We loved the breezes flowing through the room each night. I loved the kitchen...the restoration made me feel like I was back in Old Hawaii. I felt like I was "home".
The beach is within walking distance, but this is not your average swimming beach. During our stay, the waters were pretty rough, but we made use of the shore by walking and watching sunsets with Niihau Island in the background. Other swimming beaches will require a drive. This was not an issue for us.
The unit was supplied with everything you would need to enjoy your stay; towels, water fun gear, full kitchen and more.
We went to the Kauai Coffee Plantation, Koloa Rum Company, Waimea Canyon, Kalalau Valley overlook, Wailua Falls (saw a wild pua'a) and Poipu Beach. We would recommend Brennecke's Beach Broiler for dinner in Poipu. Get there for Happy Hour and sunset. Great Mai Tais, food and service! Ka;apake Joe's in Waimea was good, too!
We would definitely return here in the future! I'm missing the roosters crowing in the morning..."

"The Blue Lotus is the place to stay. VERY CLEAN AND PERFECT. The house had everything, the rooms were perfect, the kitchen, laundry room, beach stuff, grill, table & chairs and even an outside shower to rinse off after the beach. For a nice sunset view you much sit outside on the porch with your cocktails beautiful. All you need is your personal items and food. It was the perfect place to stay and mins. away from the Race Track in Mana where we were going to for the 4th of July races. I wanted to thank Mr. Worner for making everything very simple and for his prompt responds. We love this place and will be back in September 2015. I highly recommend staying here."

"There is not much more that I can add to the other great reviews about Mindy and Dave's rental other than to support that everything that has been previously written is absolutely, 100% correct. The unit is immaculately maintained as are the grounds and the views toward the mountains in the morning are fantastic. Your hosts can't be beat and are about as nice as can be, welcoming you with delicious baked goods and providing anything you need from cooking needs, to books, to beach gear, and more. The proximity to Waimea Canyon for an early morning hike or to drive up to Kokee and hang out in the cool meadow on a hot day down at sea level is great and allows you the opportunity to visit at different times of the day, which I recommend. The cross breezes and ceiling fans, along with the most comfortable bed I've slept in a long time provided a great night's sleep after active days. Like others have mentioned, sunsets are only a few minutes walk to the beach and Waimea town has any food needs you might need. There are also several locally owned shops/cafes etc in town with a wide range of products. I guess to sum everything up, Mindy's is the perfect base for a Kauai get away for those who appreciate the more relaxed local flavor of the island's Westside as a means to experience true aloha. Thank you Mindy and Dave for a terrific week! Can't wait to be back..."
