"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..."

"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 spent 10 days with another couple at this property. It was wonderful. From the moment that we stepped in the door we felt like home. The lanai is where we spent most of our time, morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and watching the fabulous sunsets. The second and third bedrooms are separate from the main part of the home and this was a great feature. It gave each couple lots of privacy. The beach was spectacular. Love the fact that it is not busy, beautiful pristine sand and great for those long walks. We did a helicopter ride around the island, rode bikes 12 miles down through the canyon (both of these activities got the heart rate up!!) did a sunset dinner cruise, a luau, golf and spent lots of time playing in the waves at the various beaches. Chad was great to deal with and make the arrangements very simple and convenient.
We are already looking at plans to return!"

"We have stayed in this beautiful home in Kekaha several times now, and recently spent an incredible two weeks there over the holidays. Our experiences at this home are always so great that we don't bother even looking for other places to stay when we have the chance to go to Hawaii. The house is spacious and beautiful --- well appointed and very comfortable. The yard is large and fun, lots of room for the kids to run around and play. The home is right on the beach, so we would often start our days walking the beach and playing in the surf, then would spend hours each day in the pool, in the hot tub, watching whales from the lanai. The caretaker Neil is always incredibly helpful whenever we need something. And the west side of Kauai is beautiful, quiet, and yet within easy reach of everything we enjoy doing --- scuba, snorkeling, boating the Napali coast, kayaking a gentle river, hiking the canyon, discovering beautiful beaches. We just returned ... and can't wait to go back!"
