  • LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!

    "My husband and I stayed here for a week. It was absolutely heaven! The rooftop patio is HUGE and amazing, we actually hardly ever left because the view was so beautiful - why go anywhere else? The condo itself is beautifully decorated and comes everything you might need from the towels to the beach gear. We used the kitchen a lot - it was fully stocked with the dishes, utensils and also the condiments! That made grocery shopping so easy. The bed was very comfortable too and the sound of the ocean at night was so soothing. Really, it's a charming condo that feels more like a beach cottage, we couldn't have been happier. Can't wait for our next trip back!"

  • Fantastic home for exploring Kauai

    "My 16 year old daughter and I enjoyed 6 nights in early April in Sunrise cottage. We loved every minute of it. The cottage and beautiful surroundings create such a feeling of well being that set the tone for our vacation from the moment we arrived. We loved waking up in the morning to tropical birds(ok the occasional rooster but you're not going to escape that in Kauai unless you barricade yourself in a hotel and keep all your windows closed)and sitting outside with coffee, admiring the gorgeous flowers which surround the cottage. Many, many beaches are within minutes drive so it's easy to go for a few hours, come back to relax and read and go out to the beach late afternoon again. An extremely well stocked, large supermarket is in Princeville which makes cooking in the cottage very easy. Several good places to eat within very easy driving distance and the bird and whale watching at 5 minute away Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge is terrific. This was our first time to Kauai and I wouldn't stay any other place than the North Shore. The beauty is just overwhelming and our stay in the cottage was perfect!!"

  • Comfortable Well-Equipped Condo in a Good Location

    "We spent 10 nights in this spacious condo with our two children. The grandparents were supposed to come with us so we wanted the extra space. In the end they couldn't come so it was more space than we needed but that is never a bad thing. The place will comfortably sleep 7 since the loft has a king size bed and a twin. It was really nice being able to put the kids to bed and then spend time in the living room at night reading or watching TV. In a hotel room, you don't have another room. The kitchen was extremely well stocked. It had every cooking utensil, pot, and pan you would ever need. We went to Costco and Walmart the first day and stocked up on food for the entire trip. We ate almost all of our breakfasts and dinners at home and made picnic lunches to eat on the beach. Saved a lot of money and was much more convenient with two little ones (4 and 6). There was also a very well-stocked beach closet with sand toys, beach towels, mats, umbrellas, etc. On the balcony there were beach chairs and boogie boards. So the only thing you need to bring are masks and goggles and you are set. The kids also enjoyed swimming at the condo pool, although its pretty small for larger kids. There is a BBQ at the pool that you can use for grilling. We had to open up all the doors and windows in addition to the ceiling fans to cool off, but then generally it was ok. We spent most days away from the condo so we were only there in the mornings and at night, but on the few occasions we came back in the middle of the day, it was warm but tolerable. If we had had air conditioning I would have used it, but we survived without it. The one thing we couldn't have survived without was the washer dryer. With all the beach towels, swimsuits, clothes, PJ's, rash guards, etc for 4 people, we had to do wash every day and I don't see how anyone comes to the island without them. That was the number one thing that was better than a hotel room. Made our stay infinitely better. So you can bring fewer clothes since you can wash them as you go. Strangely, there were lots of parrots flying around in the evening. We were always able to find parking near the condo. We visited about 7 beaches on the island, so we went to a different beach almost every day. Poipu was great, but we wanted to see the entire island. So the closeness of Poipu wasn't that important to us. Great island--we saw new things every day for 10 days and could have seen more. Definitely need a car to see things. Thanks so much!"

  • Comfortable & well equipped

    "Very nice kitchen, bathroom, living room. Quiet first floor patio and easy walk to the parking lot. We used the beach chairs, snorkeling gear and the little ice chest in the laundry room closet as well as washer and dryer. TV's in living and bedrooms worked well, would have like a channel guide somewhere. Coffee maker was great and all types of kitchen utensils available. Easy walk to pool, gym, beach, etc. The beach at the resort is not user friendly but many within walking or bike ride are. This resort is in a nice location. Easy to walk to numerous restaurants, Starbucks, grocery, Subway, Panda, etc. Great bike trail starts at this resort and heads about 3 miles North. We rented bikes and used the trail many times. We would use this condo again."

This challenging trail runs approximately 11 miles along Kauai’s north shore from Ke’e Beach to Kalalau Valley. Plan to spend the day making the round-trip 22-mile hike.
