"Wow! The home and the setting are just grand. This was the perfect 1 week getaway for our family. We have four kids age 7 and under. They loved the hot tub and Neil's kitty cat. My wife and I loved the views and the fully capable kitchen. The grill was also a plus, because the options for eating out on the southwest coast are a little limited. Neil is a superb property manager and a very nice person. We inadvertently left behind my daughter's "puppy blanket." Neil found it and mailed it back to us just a few days later. The Xbox was a nice addition, but the kids were having so much fun with everything else, they forgot about it within a day.
Note: a wire fence runs along the entire length of the property abutting the beach, and there is no gate. You'd either have to hop the fence (challenging, and I'm not sure that's okay with the owner), or you'd have to walk out the driveway and south down the road for about 50 yards to the public opening to the beach.
Also of note: We loved having our toddlers with us, but if you have little ones, and plan to travel the island extensively, get a rental vehicle with an entertainment system.
We'd definitely love to stay here again!"

"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."

"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..."

"This property was a wonderful surprise. "Plantation" says it all -- the house was vintage and sprawling. It was extremely well kept and stocked with all the amenities/comforts of home. And with 5000 feet on one level and 12-foot ceilings, it all felt absolutely spacious. The veranda was a perfect spot for our family to gather over drinks to watch surfers, whales, and sunsets. We had a group of 9 adults, and the house was perfect with the setup for each family to have their own private space including a bathroom. We cooked breakfasts and dinners at the house nearly every day - the cupboards were so well stocked that we never ran out of clean coffee mugs or wine glasses! Walks on the nearly private beach provided daily excursions and shell-searching. The expansive lawn also provided a feeling of space and luxury -- a welcome change after spending a few days in Waikiki in throngs of tourists. We even bought a frisbee to take advantage of the space! Even before we arrived in Kauai, our experience with this rental was very positive. The rental agent and the owner were very responsive to inquiries, providing pictures and much more information than expected. Some in our group had late flights out on our day of departure and they were very accommodating to arrange a late checkout from the property. (The only thing that would have made the week better was if roosters really only crowed at dawn! ;-) If (when?) we visit Kauai again, we would definitely return to this property!"
