"We were so pleasantly pleased upon our arrival into the apartment . It's extremely clean and the view of the valley in the back yard is just something to be experienced ... The sounds and colours are fantastic ! I could sit in this lazy boy chair and look out the window all day but alas there is too much to do on the island and we are only here for five days ...
The water pressure alone is worth the price of admission :)
It has everything you need and , Lani the owner could not be sweeter and more willing to help you with anything !
To be honest this is our first visit to Hawaii , we have visited Maui , Molokai and now Kauai ... Kauai is actually our least favourite but we are so happy to have found this home and the beautiful view from the back yard and the ever so friendly owner ... It has been a great place to call home for our five days :)
Oh I haven't mentioned how comfortable the beds are too !
Also you have to go to Hanapepe town for art night on Friday nights , we had a great time and so thankful , Lani told us to go :)
It's also close to many sights to view sunsets from and the Waimea Canyon as well . The sunrise from the back yard is really quite nice too ."

"I hesitate to be honest because I really don't want this property to be booked to the point that we never get to stay there again. I read reviews where people said they didn't want to go see the Island because they didn't want to leave the house. Now I totally get that. Words cannot adequately describe the way this house created such a calming atmosphere for my family. We traveled with our 3 adult children and their spouses and there were so many spaces to relax that everyone felt like they had their own space to get away. We absolutely love this side of the island. We liked traveling to see the other areas of Kauai but always looked forward to getting back to the house. Waimea was our favorite town. This little town has great restaurants and is so close to several nice beaches that are more secluded. Salt Pond beach was our favorite. Our home was very peaceful and quiet. The view of the ocean from the master bedrooms was amazing. The sunsets were incredible. The house is extremely well equipped. We LOVED the lanais and stayed on them throughout our visit. They were so well furnished and had enough seating for all 8 of us. We enjoyed the home so much that we never even turned the TV on. I have rented properties from VRBO for years and this is by far the best place we have ever stayed in."

"The house was beautiful, the location was awesome, out of the way, and not overly populated. We had a car and went all the way to the end of the road on north the shore, and as far as you could go on the west, and everywhere in-between, absolutely beautiful. There were whales spouting frequently, we even saw some breach the surface. The bed was comfortable, my husband and I stayed in the garden bedroom, and fell asleep to the sound of the ocean every night. The bedrooms are separated enough to ensure privacy, and chose this house because of the private bathrooms each bedroom has. The lanai on the upper level was perfect, had a large table with plenty of seating, a porch swing, and a hammock. There were two other long time couples friends that we vacationed with, no complaints about the comfort of the other beds either. I would highly recommend this house, If you don't like stairs, than don't stay here. I found it great exercise...bedrooms are on the lower level. Patrick was very personable, showed us around the property when we arrived.He would let us know about event happenings in the local area. When we were on our way to the airport, he called to ask how our stay was and if there was anything he needed to improve upon for future visitors. We will be back to visit."

"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"
