Great location

  • 4 of 5

Da Fish Shack is as advertised, fabulous view, rustic but neat as a pin. The outdoor shower presented a challenge for an older person with limited mobility. Overall I was very satisfied.

Loved it! What a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Loved falling asleep to the sound of the tide rolling in....and waking to gorgeous sunrises. Just a few yards from the beach. Had many a mai tai on the lanai enjoying the ocean sounds and the cool breeze.

Enchanting Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we fell in love with this quaint place! The outdoor shower was charming and with good water pressure, the bed was comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed to whip up a meal. Best part of course was falling and rising to the sound of the ocean waves right beyond the lanai and seeing the beautiful hues of blues and turqoiuse that was your backyard. About 15 steps lead you onto a beautiful, secluded beach and 15 minutes drive lead you into the trendy town of Kapaa. Could not have asked for a better place to experience Kauai!

Quiet (other than the roosters 🐔of course), private and romantic

  • 5 of 5

Quiet (other than the roosters 🐔𕁯f course), private and romantic....We were so impressed with this little place right on the water (exactly as advertised). I was a little anxious about the only shower being outside but it was one of my favourite parts along with being able to snorkel steps away from the cottage/shack and waking up to the sunrise 🌅󑐮

Note: toilet is not very case this matters to u 😉򒐠When we needed privacy we just told the other one to go for a beach walk.

A tiny but cozy, one-room house in an absolutely spectacular setting.

  • 4 of 5

I loved Da Fish Shack! I was looking for a quiet, secluded-feeling spot for a solo trip to Kauai. Da Fish Shack fit the bill perfectly! Though there are plenty of houses on Aliamanu Beach, because of the thick foliage down to the upper edge of the beach, they cannot be seen from Da Fish Shack and so therefore the place feels quite secluded. The beach itself is gorgeous--a long stretch of beautiful sand, and a reef about 400 yards offshore that protects the closer waters from the rather violent break of the surf. The Shack itself was as described, with microwave, toaster and sink; indoor toilet and outdoor shower (the shower is enclosed and needs a little work on the enclosure, but the shower itself was great!) The bed took up a great deal of the space, as one can see from the photos, but no problem for only one guest. BTW, the bed was quite comfortable. Essie, the owner, was very hands off--which I appreciated--but was very responsive when I had a question. One improvement would be to have access to a hot plate so one could boil water or scramble an egg.

If I ever need another solo sojourn on Kauai, Da Fish Shack will be the first place I think of! I would love to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Did not answer until I could get into the unit to check for the hotplate. It was there. We have a double instead of a single hotplate. Sorry you didn't find it. Mahalo again.

Da Fish Shack was just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The property is gorgeous, nothing beats the almost private beach we had daily. We snorkeled right outside and saw some pretty cool fish. You have to drive places but totally worth the serenity.
