'Guest Rating: ***** 5-Star. The Cottage is a perfect place for a getaway with someone you hold dear. The view is worth more, way more, than what is regularly charged to stay in "The Cottage". Also, the close proximity to everything on the north shore is a big plus!'

Paul D., Oakland, CA

'Besides the drop-dead views, location, et al, of this true 5-star lodging, we have to mention the tremendously comfortable bed, lovely quality linens, pillows, decor,... just everything is want-to-take-home-for-my-own-house GREAT!' Lois and Jim, Denver, CO

'Even more beautiful than we had been told. The peace and lack of 'hotel feel' made our honeymoon stay and us feel special...like we really earned bragging rights to an inside track to paradise.' PAUL & JULIE, Turlock,CA

'What an inspiring setting. Gosh! It's exciting just doing nothing except being awestruck at the views, changing sky, waters on the reef. To think we were actually lucky enough to spend two weeks here! We pinch ourselves each morning.' MARY & STEVE, Milwaukee,WI

'Thanks for the terrific environment and luxurious, casual comfort. The Princeville Makai Golf course and resort facilities were so convenient-fabulous-unsurpassed as were the sightings of whales and north shore hikes.' JESSICA & ROBERT, Seattle,WA

'Your place was the ideal setting for us to rekindle the joy, love and excitement that began our marriage 25 years ago. The vistas, privacy, location on the North Shore were all awesome. We have stayed in luxurious hotels all over the world but the privacy of your place...well, it's a love nest! We will forever be grateful for sharing your home with us.' MARYBETH & MEL, Evansville, IN

'We had a fabulous time in Kauai and your remarkable site here made it very special. We spent a lot of time just watching the whales jump. Thank goodness for washing machines! We got credibility muddy from some of the best hiking we've ever done. Waking up to the beautiful sunrise behind the Lighthouse was perfect.' G.T.& ELAINE, Dallas,TX

'We had a great time on our 15th wedding anniversary. The place is private and romantic. I don't know how you did it, but, we even felt like locals and adventurers.' JOHN & KATHY, San Jose, CA

'We had a marvelous time here. 'The Cottage' has been more than we could have imagined! The view was truly incredible. This was the BEST place to honeymoon! LAUREL & DON, Spokane,WA

'The Cottage' was beyond our expectations. The views were awesome and the ambiance unique. There are few places where you can fall asleep to the crashing surf on a coral reef. We had a wonderful anniversary.' CRAIG & SUSAN, San Francisco,CA

'What a wonderful setting to enjoy our honeymoon. Your place exceeded expectations with its majestic views, prime location, charming interiors, etc. This is such a stunning island and yours was an ideal lodging from which to explore it.' SCOTT & ALISON, Providence,RI

About Susan Wilson

Have fun viewing two short "vimeo" (video) . Clicking on OWNER INFORMATION section. Specific vimeo: https://vimeo.com/128335745 and https://vimeo.com/133199205

Why Susan Wilson chose North Shore

'THE COTTAGE' is one-of-a-kind NON-HOTEL ... BUT with hotel views and privacy and comfort and convenience ... and ... at a very great price compared to what the St. Regis at Princeville charges for a room with a view.

What makes this cottage unique

Convenience, coupled with the WOW factor Kick + Surprise every time you open 'The Cottage' door, or, when you pop out for snorkeling at Anini reef just below at lovely, secluded, sandy Kaweonui beach cove, or, take a great warm outdoor shower, or, walk the neighborhood, or, ... do any one of the variety of adventures all of which can easily be topped off with a sit/soak in the private large comfortable spa sipping a glass of bubbly. The list goes on and on and on-- in a good way!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The Cottage" is IT: a five star un-hotel touch of Kauai exceptionalism without the price ($$$$$). Our Honeymoon a stay in "The Cottage" was genius Aloha with its views, location, privacy + spa, beach cove, etc. It's the "complete package".

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I had a few concerns before booking, as the website leaves some things to the imagination, which I will address for anyone else wondering the same things.

How private is this place really?

VERY private. This is not just a rental in a sea of rentals. It's really tucked away in a residential area. Yes, it's attached to a main house, but there is a garage (not used by the owner during your stay) separating the two. And outside, no problem. A fence separates you from the main house. Everything from the entry, to the outdoor shower, to the hot tub, to the two lanais are COMPLETELY private. You really feel like you are in your own world with nothing but the ocean in front of you. I can't imagine anywhere else on the island being more private. There is no better place for a romantic getaway.

No AC??

No problem! This place is designed to have the trade winds flow through. Not only does it stay cool, but the breeze flowing through night and day really puts you in touch with the island and recharges your soul. Obviously, you can keep the wind out at night if you get cold.

The pictures seem too good to be true...

They're not!! Actually, the pictures don't come close to representing how amazing your daily view will be here.

This is THE perfect place for a romantic stay. Plenty of amenities are provided. I never met the owner, but her friend was there to welcome us and was just lovely and very eager to make sure we had a good stay, while respecting our privacy and being invisible the rest of the time.

BOOK THIS PLACE!!!

Don't wait. If it's available for your dates, book it now! You won't regret it and you won't find anything better. Just don't book it during the time that I'm planning to come back!!!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved staying at the cottage for our honeymoon/1st anniversary. A lovely place with a fantastic view of the ocean and sunrise/sunset. Well situated to the North Shore beaches, hiking, snorkeling etc. Perfectly equipped with small kitchen for breakfasts and we did use the grill for steaks one evening. Plenty of good beach gear as well. Susan thank you for sharing this beautiful special place with us.

Absolutely breathtaking views from a charming beach cottage with two beautiful lanais, stunning.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property for the week of our wedding. It was perfect! The views from everywhere in the cottage are breathtaking and we enjoyed spending time outdoors on the lanais. The sunrise from the cottage is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed making breakfast one morning in the fully stocked kitchen and admired the gorgeous views from the dining table. The views from the hot tub are wonderful as well. My husband and I also were glad to have access to the nearby beach cove where we snorkeled one day. This property is just wonderful; quiet and comfortable with great personality. We truly hope to stay here again!

Charming with epic sunrises...

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful feeling the minute you enter this hidden gem. We enjoyed our stay very much and attention was given to every detail. The walk to the secret beach would be a little challenging for small kids and or the elderly, but worth it if you can make it. Lots of beach gear provided! We felt secluded yet protected in this safe private cumminity.
