Wonderful view towards the backyard, and beyond; no houses behind us, just all natural vegetation and the Hanalei mountains in the distance sometimes with 2000+ ft. long waterfalls on them.

Lots of privacy in this wonderful cottage, quiet, peaceful, fabulous master bath with jetted tub. All tile floors, feels good on your feet and exceptionally clean.

About Carolyn

I first bought property in Hanalei in 1977, because it was so quaint and had that 'small town' beach community feel. It's just like a little surfing town out of the 60's.

Carolyn purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Carolyn chose Hanalei

Hanalei is the most unique spot in all of Hawaii: quaint little surfing style town out of the 60's. Walk everywhere: to town, beach, pier, dinner, groceries, coffeeshop. When people who live in the state of Hawaii want to take a vacation and can't go to the mainland, they come to Hanalei !

What makes this cottage unique

Close to the beach, close to the village, ideal location.

a perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Coconut Cottage was all we could have asked for as a vacation home for our honeymoon week in Hanalei. The cottage was very nicely and comfortably furnished, the king-size bed in the master bedroom and A/C unit made for excellent sleeping, and the outdoor showers were both convenient (wash off sand/mud from adventures) and fun (listen to the birds while you shower) to experience. Aside from the kitchen, the living room, lanai and master suite are all on the backside of the house, which faces the garden and thus feels very private, even though there are homes on either side of the cottage.

The full and well-appointed kitchen made for easy food preparation, even though we ate out a lot. We ate out a lot, because we were only a few houses away from the main intersection in Hanalei. So many options for meals, snacks, shopping, massages, etc. We were also only a 2-3 minute walk to Hanalei Pavilions Beach Park, where we watched several sunsets and body-boarded (thanks to the bodyboards available at the cottage). It was so relaxing to park the car, and leave it while we walked around town and to the beach for a few days of our stay.

While we could not access the towns/beaches/trails north of Hanalei (due to the flood damage), we found plenty to keep us busy in Hanalei, Princeville and the areas along the east shore.

We only used the master bedroom, so don't have a review of the other 2 bedrooms in the cottage. The owner takes immaculate care of this rental which makes for a very pleasant and relaxing stay. She is also very responsive to emails and the booking process was a breeze.

I highly recommend this vacation rental.

Lovely house and perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Coconut cottage was great. Very nice house with great attention to the small details. Loved the master suite. All the beds were heavenly. The only suggestion would be to possible cover a portion of the back deck so you could still sit outside when it was raining. The location was great - short walk to the beach and shops.

Thank you Carol for making our 6 nights in Hanalei memorable.

terrific and well positioned group or family holiday house

  • 4 of 5

Our stay including booking/paying procedure was all smooth sailing. The instructions for finding the house and to gain entry were perfect. The local food shopping tips were appreciated. The house has everything you may think you'll need and more, including beach chairs, umbrella, toys, boogie boards, beach towels etc. Its very spacious, comfortable and extremely well situated, a few minutes walk to the main road and 5 minutes from the beach. The kitchen, bathrooms and laundry are well appointed including soaps, washing powders etc.

A couple of minor things will make it absolutely perfect. The first is better block-out curtains or blinds in the bedrooms, the current ones a quite sheer. The second is better lighting, its a bit dim on a cloudy day and at night.

I will definitely highly recommend this very well maintained and spacious home.

Perfection in Hanalei

  • 5 of 5

This house is even better than I thought it would be. It's a one minute walk from all the restaurants and shopping and about a five minute walk to the beach. The house is surrounded by lush tropical plants and hedges so it's very private. There's a view of the mountains from the back deck. The house is open and modern. The kitchen is well-equipped. We cooked Christmas dinner there and had everything we needed. I really enjoyed the full-size washer and dryer for towels and swimsuits. The house was perfectly clean and the master bed was SO comfortable. Beach chairs, a wheeled cooler, and beach towels are provided. The owner was very good about communicating with me from the time I made the reservation until I got back home. If and when I go back to Kauai, I will be renting this house!

Brilliant stay at Coconut Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 spent a fantastic week in Hanalei Bay at Coconut Cottage. This house is perfectly located - a short stroll to cafes, shops & the beach. Easy walk for my morning latte at The Hanalei Bread Company & Mai Tais at Tahiti Nui is a must do! The house is immaculate & was perfect for our family. Everything was thought of including beach chairs, umbrella & cooler bag for the beach. Beds exceptionally comfortable- the best we'd slept on for our whole trip! Carolyn was a delight to deal with and very organised. I can't speak highly enough of this property and hope to return one day. Thank you for helping to make our holiday fantastic!
