Recent Kauai reviews

  • Hanalei Bay escape

    "This cottage is well-stocked and in a great location. It can be a little noisy either early morning or late night, as it's right next to public beach parking, but earplugs fixed that. The directions to arrive and get in were great and easy. The house had plenty roomy for two of us, and lots of windows and fans to keep fresh air flowing. Great washer/dryer, lots of towels and some beach chairs/boogie boards and beach umbrella to use. We love this area and the easy walk into town via beach, side street or main road allows for having a relaxing time with plenty of adventures into nature. We rarely used our rental car while in Hanalei, walking to the kayak rental place at the mouth of the river, to the Luau at Tahiti Nui, the local farmers market, to the departure point for the sunset sail around the Na Pali, and of course, across the lawn to swim every day! There was a strong smell of bleach, puddles of water on the patios and a very soggy mat by the patio door when we arrived, and no recycling instructions, which seemed odd for an environmentally aware area like this. Other than that initial impression, we had a great time and hope to come back."

  • Luxury Condo -5 Stars

    "From reservations to check out, the transaction with the owner, Ken was smooth and flawless. He is excellent to deal with. If there are any issues upon arrival, contact Ken and it will be resolved. The view from the lanai is breathtaking. Every morning we indulged in our morning coffee and listened to the roosters announcing a new day. The sunrises were spectacular coming up behind the palm trees like a ball of fire. Our first morning we observed 4 sea turtles in the bay feeding. The condo really is a great place to go for some quiet R&R. This is not a party pad. It is a quiet building where tenants respect one another and are there to relax also. It is in a great location. Our dive shops were minutes away and Costco and other activities were maybe a 15-20 min drive. The condo was an excellent base camp while we explored the island, returning in the evening for some relaxation. Listening to the waves while falling asleep became addicting. We were here 2 weeks and it became home for us. We would definitely stay here again. We had no issues with this condo or parking our rental. If a one bedroom ocean view and tranquility is what you're looking for, don't hesitate to rent this condo. If you like to light it up on your vacation and crank the tunes, I'd look for a different condo complex. Feel free to contact us for further questions."

  • Spacious Condo

    "This condo is in a great location, being in Poipu, which tends to have the best weather on the island. And it is a very short walk through the lovely grounds to a couple of fantastic beaches where you can boogie board, snorkel and sunbathe. The condo had plenty of room for us and our three big teens. The kitchen was well stocked and beach towels and boogie boards were definitely appreciated. It was just a short drive to Poipu Village shopping centre and Koloa town where there are many nice shops, services and restaurants. I highly recommend this unit."

  • Paradise Found

    "On my recent stay, I was blown away by the spectacular views particularly the sunsets and the abaility to view the whales from our lanai as well as the accessibility to the beaches. The pool as well as the hot tub was just lovely for winding down after our busy days of walking the beaches, snorkelling and boogey boarding all within steps of the front door. Since this was our first visit to the Garden Island all of our adventures were exciting. The guide book was as useful as the lovely ammenities. The trip to the secret beach was worth the worry on the unpaved road which seemed endless. There were no vendors but we were well prepared with our cooler and boogey boards. They had to be natives riding the waves like they were being filmed for an advertisement. Another delightful daytrip was to the lighthouse and caves on the north of the island. The restaurants and shops were fun but coming home with the rain was compensated by beautiful double rainbows. Going home to Honu Kai was the best part of every day Next time we go there I would like to see about a private chef and observe a professional in this beautiful kitchen."
