  • Pure Heaven

    "My wife and I stayed in the cottage twice. The first time was for a week in December and then again in May for 15 nights. We have our own home on Kauai but preferred to rent the cottage due to the location which is unparalleled. The cottage is very well appointed with a beautiful kitchen and all the amenities one would expect in a fine rental. The owners are two of the kindest and most gracious people I have had the pleasure of meeting. They truly care for our comfort and are quick to respond to any questions. We only used the room with the queen bed. The mattress was extremely comfortable and we especially like having an outdoor shower. Having rented homes on Kauai for over 15 years we recognize that beachfront in Hanalei is becoming harder and harder to find and having such a lovely cottage for an affordable price on the bay is such a blessing and gesture of kindness. The owners could surely charge more for this location. Thank you Smoky and Kim for your hospitality and we look forward to coming back again and again. On a side not, in reading other reviews for this home, I am clueless as to why someone would give a lower rating because the weather was not nice. Shouldn't the review focus entirely on the home and the service provided by the owners. Just seems so unfair to blame a rental home for inclement weather...just sayin. Mahalo...G & K"

  • Heaven in Paradise

    "My family & I have know Hanalei well, and Ileina's Cottage suited us perfectly! We are still basking in the glow of our wonderful stay there, 2 weeks after we checked out. The location is ideal. A very short walk to the cafes, restaurants, shops and grocery stores in town, and a very short walk to the beach. I can't think of a better location within Hanalei, if you want to have the best of both worlds and be able to walk to town or the beach. The layout is generous and appealing, with lots of living space in the main room and on the wraparound porch. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, our kids loved playing in the side and back yards and hunting for geckos. We were thrilled to find a washer and dryer on the premises. There's an outdoor shower for you to wash away the sand and salt from the beach. The house comes very well equipped with all of the dishes and utensils and pots & pans you would ever need, a grill with bbq tools, charcoal and lighter fluid, a host of beach toys for the kids, even a couple of boogie boards and some miscellaneous snorkel gear. I'm sure that inventory of beach stuff comes and goes with each new guest to stay there, but the point is the place is very well stocked and ready for you. Both bedrooms are a nice size and the two bathrooms are both essentially en suite, although one of them opens up onto the the living room as well. I'd say the place is perfect for a couple with young kids who can share a bed, or 2 couples with no kids, or a few friends who don't mind sharing beds. The cottage is adjacent to the larger house property. We were lucky in that the Canadian family staying in the house for the first part of our stay was incredibly friendly, and our elder daughters became fast friends. But the cottage and the house are right next to each other, they share a driveway and yard. The people who moved in after the Canadians left were OK but were not very friendly, and it was slightly awkward to share the space with them and not get any smiles or waves back when they were coming and going. It was not a problem for us, it did not diminish our opinion of the cottage, but it's just good to know how close you will be to your neighbors I think. The ideal scenario would be to rent both the house and the cottage with a larger group, although renting just one or the other is great too. I would not hesitate to recommend Ileina's Cottage. We can't wait to go back!"

  • BEST Family Vacation Ever!

    "When we walked into Pine Tree Villa for the first time, we were nearly in tears taking in all the beauty around us. The photos on the computer don't do the real thing justice. The house and furnishings were beautiful, comfortable, and perfectly suitable for our family - every single room. We loved taking in the beach view from the back of the house and the mountain/waterfall view from the master bedroom. We looked forward to eating all our meals on the lanai so we could enjoy the ocean activities, look for dolphins, all surrounded by multiple hues of green in the trees and landscape. The back gate access to the beach and park were perfect for our daily beach time fix. Talia, her cleaning crew and her activity/equipment referrals were stellar. Their personal touches throughout the house were appreciated. We loved the outside shower, the master bathroom shower and Jacuzzi tub. The kids appreciated the beach equipment closet and we used practically everything accessible to us! We rented bikes, kayaks and stand up paddles boards. We surfed, boogie boarded, swam and built a metropolis of sand castles! We explored the town of Hanalei, taste tested all the Shave Ice, took hikes to Queen's Bath, the pools of Molokea, drove all over the island, snorkeled on several beaches, ate out, ate in, explored Waimea Canyon and the state parks. The boys took the helicopter ride around the island and along the Napali coast. Some took a boat clear around the island. In the midst of all that adventure, we loved our down time, enjoyed reading, playing cards, doing puzzles and playing board games - all available to us in the house. It was a marvelous three weeks and we look forward to coming again. Much Mahalo!"
