"We had a fabulous 10 day stay in Kauai, thanks to this beautiful home. It truly is amazing...completely stocked kitchen, big bedrooms with attached bathroom, decorated very nicely. The large lanai overlooks the ocean - you can watch the whales, see the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We cooked most of our meals at the house, so really saved money on not eating out. There were 5 of us and we had plenty of room, but privacy if that was what we wanted.
The owners (Ed & Annette) were so easy to work with and so helpful. Although we had contact information for their property manager, we never felt the need to contact her.
We went to the Smith Family Luau - well worth the money and a must-see.
We highly recommend this home to anyone. You won't be disappointed."

"I hesitate to be honest because I really don't want this property to be booked to the point that we never get to stay there again. I read reviews where people said they didn't want to go see the Island because they didn't want to leave the house. Now I totally get that. Words cannot adequately describe the way this house created such a calming atmosphere for my family. We traveled with our 3 adult children and their spouses and there were so many spaces to relax that everyone felt like they had their own space to get away. We absolutely love this side of the island. We liked traveling to see the other areas of Kauai but always looked forward to getting back to the house. Waimea was our favorite town. This little town has great restaurants and is so close to several nice beaches that are more secluded. Salt Pond beach was our favorite. Our home was very peaceful and quiet. The view of the ocean from the master bedrooms was amazing. The sunsets were incredible. The house is extremely well equipped. We LOVED the lanais and stayed on them throughout our visit. They were so well furnished and had enough seating for all 8 of us. We enjoyed the home so much that we never even turned the TV on. I have rented properties from VRBO for years and this is by far the best place we have ever stayed in."

"The rooms are very clean and extremely comfortable. If you are looking to sit on the beach, relax and watch the sunset every night, this is the perfect rental. It is a short, one block walk, and your feet are already in the sand! I have been to Kauai on 3 different trips and this location is the best. Completely away from the road noise and crowds on the east side. It is also super close to either road up to Waimea Canyon and the Kalalau Valley lookout. If it is cloudy one day, you can just drive up again the next!! This house has EVERYTHING, down to a cheese grater and ice cream scoop. (which we used every day!) Unlike most rentals that do not have more than 4 forks. Washer, dryer, clothes line, grill, beach towels and chairs…the list goes on and on and on. Cannot wait to rent this one again!!!"

"We (3) had an absolutely fantastic stay at Tradewinds cottage. It was quiet, private and safe. Lovely huge private yard. i had a rental bike and there was great cycling all around the neighborhood, plus the hiway had a really wide shoulder, and when it left beach front the hiway was not busy.. a 1 hour ride gets you to the very end of the paved road. It was close to town to run for groceries/beer. Close to a great safe beach. My 80 year old mom LOVED the hot tub!!..private and fenced.. enjoyed drinking wine under the stars. The kitchen and laundry facilities were terrific, beds were comfy. Linens/towels excellent. Owner Scott couldn't have been more accommodating. We were out and about everyday doing excursions but were so happy to get home to our quiet relaxing home away from home. Total thumbs up for Tradewinds Cottage. Jean Katie and Mae"
