Clean, comfy, character w/a view

  • 5 of 5

We liked that this property was *not* the classic (dull) vacation condo, it felt like a home with a story, and was in an interesting neighborhood with a dramatic backdrop. Easy walk to a lovely beach. Great farmer's market nearby on the weekend (schedule for markets in the house guide). Good if you want to be somewhere peaceful & private, not at all touristy. Not a luxurious stay - good if you like having a kitchen, ample space, simplicity & character over frills or a new feeling space. Oh and love the healthy book exchange in the house and all of the beach accessories! Perfect for our trip.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is large and is perfectly situated between mountain and ocean. Diana spares no effort in making one's stay easy and thoroughly enjoyable. The kitchen is better stocked with implements and tools than our one at home is. And, of course, the daily visit from Coconut, Diana's chocolate lab, is a total delight. We strongly recommend this as a place to stay if you want an off-the-beaten-path Hawaiian vacation.

Love, love, LOVE this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay at the Cottage at Mahi's farm. From the moment we started in the driveway, we knew it was going to be something special. The trees, luscious greenery, and seclusion were so welcoming. The cottage was the perfect home base for all of our adventures (we went all over the island!).

We met Diana as we were walking to the beach on our first night. She was warm and welcoming and encouraged us to let her know if we had any questions or concerns via her cell (call or text). We never had any issues, but knowing she was so accessible and eager to help left us feeling very comfortable with our decision to stay there.

The cottage had boogie boards, beach chairs, a cooler, snorkel equipment... all you could need for fun on the many beautiful beaches in Kauai.

The kitchen is fully stocked and well organized. We made breakfast each morning as the birds were singing, roosters crowing, and the sun was rising. It was the perfect way to start each day.

Coco the dog is a sweet boy and was eager to greet us each time we returned to the cottage. He brought coconuts, an avacado, and an orange in his visits to play with. Such a goofball!

I could go on and on about this place; pictures don't do it justice... I encourage you to go and experience it for yourself! We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back!

Perfect Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Rustic Cottage on the Mahinanis farm!

It was so relaxing and quiet after a day of exploring the island and putting up with the crowds and traffic in the towns. Location made it easy to get to either the Northside or the Southside sights.

We also loved the visits from Coco-nut every day. He made us feel welcomed to be there.

Diana has provided all of the little things we usually pick up at a thrift store for a short stay.

If we ever get back to Kauai, this is the only place we would want to stay.
