Why Mary Ellen Turk chose Kilauea

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted you to know that we had a wonderful time at the cottage. The location was the best! The north shore definitely was the prime location. We went to Ke’e beach on Monday and snorkeled, and tried to hike the trail there. It was wet and slippery and I chickened out. My sister was bound and determined to hike back to the waterfall, and so she did by herself on Friday. She absolutely loved it! While on the island, we went to the canyon, kayaked up the river in Hanalei, visited the lighthouse, the botanical garden by Ke’e beach, but the best time we had was in the cove right across the street from the cottage.

On Wednesday, which was my 60th birthday, I had wanted to snorkel at Tunnels. We got there and the water was so rough and the lifeguard said no one could go in the water on the whole north side of the island. I was devastated. We went back to the cottage and walked across the street to the beach and saw that the cove was so calm. So we went snorkeling there and ran into this big guy! (see attached) It was calm and perfect snorkeling and the best birthday ever! We snorkeled there the next few days and saw this guy each day and a few other turtles as well.

Anyway, I just wanted you to know that we all had a terrific time. John was so helpful. He brought us eggs several mornings and was available if we needed anything. We used the grill one night and loved that we were able to make our own meals. It was also wonderful to have access to a washer and dryer!

Thanks again so much. I’m now trying to convince my husband that Plumeria cottage would be a perfect place for his 60th birthday next year

Beautiful Hawaiian home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Hawaiian house for the great local flavor! Loved the wrap around deck and doors to open up for a wonderful breeze throughout the home. Even though our stay was cloudy and a bit rainy, the North shore is always a treasure. Great location to Anini beach, Tunnels, and Hanalei. Appreciated the extra amenities such as beach chairs, and did not use kayaks.. but perhaps next time.

Thank you!

beautiful, quiet, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Plumeria cottage for 4 nights and really loved our time here. We are a family of 5 and the house provided all the comforts of home with true island style. The porches were beautiful and outdoor shower a special treat. The kitchen had all the necessary cooking utensils and spices needed to easily prepare a family meal shared on the screened in dining porch. Plumeria cottage is conveniently located near Princeville and Hanalei Bay so access to adventures in these locations was easy. My boys loved snorkeling and beach combing on Annini beach. It is a very short walk to the beach, about 300 yards. We are grateful for the opportunity to stay here and would highly recommend it to other vacationers who want a quiet (except for roosters which seems island wide), slightly off the beaten path getaway.

Lovely, well kept home a short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

There was easy access to a beautiful, uncrowded beach. The house itself is a lovely plantation style and has charming grounds. Bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed although it could use is a colander.

Live the locals life in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Kauai multiple times. We have stayed in the beautiful hotels of the Garden Island. We desired a quiet, more local feel this time, away from the lobbies and valet parking. The Plumeria Cottage gave this to us with a beautifully appointed home and a charming location.

The cottage was wisely and beautifully allotted. From a well-stocked kitchen, to plenty of storage for all our 8 days of travel. I personally appreciate the amount of garment hooks place in the bathroom and the closet areas. The screened in porch allows for meals during any weather and the open porch, which runs most of the house, was dry even during the heaviest of rain shower. Handsome redwood floors run throughout the cottage with enough seating for a dozen people. The cottage is supplied with two tandem kayaks, multiple beach chairs, snorkeling masks and some life jackets. Certainly, enough to start your beach adventures. The host Bill stopped by with some freshly picked local fruits and to see how we were getting along, a very nice surprise.

If you live like a local, you live with roosters and chickens. I brought earplugs for the roosters and never reached for them. My wife, mother-in-law and I laughed about the roosters the first morning and didn’t mention it again. It is part of the islands rhythm and you become one with it very quickly. We all slept soundly every night.

A few sips of your coffee and a few steps to the sound of the surf and you are standing on Anini beach. You see the large reef with the breaker a few hundred yards off shore designating the reefs edge. Then you realize your standing alone with no one in sight. You can go a quarter of a mile down the road and be at Anini state beach park with facilities for showering and grilling, but foot traffic through this area is low and you are a local with locals.

We all had a very special and memorable time at the Plumeria cottage.

Sincerely John
