  • Kekaha Sunset Cottage No Ka Oi

    "Aloha oe Tony, our 7-day stay at the Kekaha Sunset Cottage was perfect. The property is located about 26 miles west of Lihue, (about a 40 minute drive). The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything you will need. All appliances worked well. The only thing we needed to supply was the food we wanted to eat. We were able to utilize the Navy Exchange facilities at Barking Sands to that end. There is one market in Kekaha and 2 in Waimea that you can purchase food items. The decorations in the house are minimal and done in a Hawaiian motif; I especially liked the chart of Kaua'i in the main hallway. Sunset Cottage is located in a neighborhood that is real Hawaii, not a resort. The house is located away from all of the resort properties and the associated crowds that are drawn to them. It is located 2 short blocks from a non-crowded beach area, (even during Prince Kuhio Day) where you can watch fantastic sunsets each night. After enjoying your day or night at the beach, an outdoor shower can be used to rinse off prior to entering the house. There are beach towels and chairs available for use along with a washer/dryer to clean your clothes for the next days adventure. This side of the island is very arid, we had no rain at all in Kekaha during our stay, while it poured in Poipu, Lihue and the North Shore on various days. This does tend to make it a little warmer than other areas of the island. There was a farmers market in Kekaha on Saturday starting at 0900 but items were mostly gone by 1030. However, good deals and delicious fruit were to be had if you got there early. You must try the apple banana (they are shaped like a small Chiquita banana but have a slight green apple taste). The less traveled back way to Waimea Canyon is located close by which leads you to the Grand Canyon of Hawaii. There are numerous hiking opportunities in this park. In addition, Waimea is a short 3 miles down the road and there is so much history in this town, you can spend an entire day exploring this quaint town. There is a 90-minute walking tour with historical markers pointing out the major items. Waimea also hosts the oldest monkey pod tree on Kauai. Also, stop by Jo-Jo’s for the best shaved ice on the island (shameless plug), but the service can be slow. Kekaha Sunset Cottage No Ka Oi, Mahalo nui loa Tony, for allowing us the use of your wonderful house. Looking forward to our next visit to Kauai and the wonderful Kekaha Sunset Cottage"

  • Amazing Home

    "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."

  • Beautiful Hawaii

    "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!"

  • FANTASTIC --- AGAIN!!

    "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!"
