"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!"

"My wife and I recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on the sunny, west side of Kaua'i. This turned into the dream vacation for us from the moment we set eyes on the Hale' Laguna. The location is absolutely fabulous. There are spacious upper and lower decks from which I could literally throw a stone into the ocean. The ocean tides afforded 40-50 feet of soft, sandy beach directly in front of the home. After using chairs, boogie boards, and other beach gear provided with the home we showered off at the outdoor shower prior to entering the home.
Once inside the home you will find it is obvious the owners spared no expense in making this home comfortable. The interior design and decorations are impeccably perfect for this beach scene. Master rooms and on-suites on both levels are beautiful. Living areas on both levels are comfortable and serene. Linens and towels are high quality fabric. The fully stocked kitchen and outdoor gas grill made it easy to produce any meal, and - most importantly - refreshing Pina Coladas!
Perhaps the most memorable of all was sleeping to the sound of crashing waves, waking to a stunning view, observing awesome sunsets, and gazing at starry night skies. Although there really is no need to go anywhere, the drive to enjoy the island's sightseeing and tourist activities was only 30-60 minutes, which we found to be very pleasant. Returning home to the Hale' Laguna made it all the better.
I would sum it all up with a breathtaking WOW! -- Enjoy --we certainly did!"

"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"

"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."
