We loved the cottage and setting. Felt like a true getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at the cottage while we toured Kauai, experiencing all the wonderful sights this island has to offer. The cottage had all the beach equipment a person needs to hangout and enjoy the sand and surf. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals and we enjoyed grilling fresh fish and steaks several evenings. Hanging out at the cottage was very comfortable and relaxing whether reading or sitting on the lanai. We got a real charge watching and listening to the birds, especially the white - rumped shama. It was a great holiday.

Serene and private

Diana’s cottage is a wonderful alternative to a sterile condo in a resort. It’s more spacious than the photos show and nicely furnished. We visited many of the farmer’s markets and cooked at home, so we really appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. The cottage is ideally located for exploring the island and wonderful to return to after a day on the road. We enjoyed some beautiful sunrises, looked forward to our visits from CocoNut the dog, and loved Diana’s homemade soap. Diana was readily available by text if we had a question.

We loved staying in your sweet Hawaiian cottage. Thank you for sharing your land with others. Staying away from resorts really gives you more of a sense of what it’s like to live here. We found the house very clean and loved the way you have decorated it! Loved all the paintings and art work.

We will hopefully be back again.......

The most well equipped rental we have ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

Diana has really thought of everything! We stayed here in February on our honeymoon and this was the perfect place for seeing and experiencing all that Kauai has to offer. This place has everything you need, beach chairs, a cooler, boogie boards, a kitchen that is more well equipped than mine at home.. and MORE! We loved staying in this quiet and secluded spot. HIGHLY recommend it. It is a bit on the rustic side but very charming and comfortable. The bed was really comfy and the sheets were soft and seemed brand new. The hammock outside is a dreamy place to read a book, the views are amazing and the charming dog Coconut was such a nice dog. The juice/smoothie bar just down the highway in Anahola had the best Acai bowls and smoothies on the island!

Third time to Kauai and first time st the cottage and can’t wait to stay again! Gorgeous sunrise views sipping coffee in the lounge chairs, great place to cook with views of the ocean! Was nice to have laundry as well as first half of trip was on different part of the island. Plus walking distance to Angeline’s massage and they also allow you to use their steam room for 20 dollars a day ! Loved the hammock and nice to have coconut while my dog was at home! Look forward to another healing vacation at the cottage:)

Best cottage on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Diana's cottage - at the foothills of Anahola mountain - was the perfect place to start my Kauai adventure. Minutes from the local beach, a fruit stand with the perfect acai bowls, and quick access to both North and East shore beaches, Diana's cottage was all I could've asked for in a VRBO. Clean with the perfect amount of amenities and a lot of space to relax outside, I can't wait to plot my return!
