"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..."

"We rented this home from Scott after weeks and weeks of searching through VRBO postings for the perfect house for a 2 families of 3 for a week long vacation. We communicated often with Scott leading up to the visit. Scott was quick in responding and thorough in providing us information about the area and answering all of my questions.
Upon arrival, the home was spotless, current with appliances, furnishings, décor, etc... the layout is unique in there are 2 master bedrooms, one downstairs, one upstairs. Both very comfortable for the 2 sets of parents in our group. The 3rd room worked out really well for our 2 teens, giving each one of them their own bed and space to spread out over our week-long vacation.
The views from the lanai are amazing! Nothing but ocean as far as you can see. I read other reviews regarding the road that runs alongside the front of the house... yes, there's a busy road but it doesn't distract from the views of the ocean or the experience of sitting out on the lanai for morning coffee or evening cocktail. It's a busy road.
The 3 bedrooms have individual air conditioning units. There is not air conditioning for the rest of the living space, so afternoons are hot inside, even with the windows open and fans on. We had one issue with the downstairs master bedroom air conditioning unit not blowing cool air when on. Scott responded to my complaint immediately and had a repair service out on Monday morning to address and fix the unit. The 2 master bedroom units were pretty noisy though. We all had to sleep with ear plugs in to block out the noise of the units. I'd prefer to be cool than worry about noise, so just mentioning this in case others are light sleepers and crave cool air while sleeping... bring ear plugs.
The yard around the home is lovely. There's chickens and roosters everywhere, along with beautiful plumeria trees and other tropical flowers. We didn't get bug bites at the house so I'm guessing the chickens help keep control of the Hawaiian mosquitoes.
We cooked often at the house and the kitchen is well equipped to accommodate. There are a few small markets in town, but they're really expensive. Scott recommended we stop on our way in at Costco, which we did. Note that Scott keeps really fresh condiments and spices loaded in the fridge and cupboards so you don't need to buy fillers. All in all we loved the house and had an amazing vacation. I'd rent this exact home again next time we visit Kauai"

"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."

"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!"
