  • Perfectly Kauai

    "I almost hesitate to write this review because we hope to have the ocean view cottage available for our return in July! But, for anyone looking for a real Kauai experience, look no further. The location is perfect, the cottage is comfortable and the view can't be beat. Haena is heaven on earth and staying in Auntie's cottage made our experience even more memorable. Mahalo!"

  • serene and comfortable

    "We stayed in this property in October. We really needed to get away from it all and this property delivered. House was clean, quiet, and comfortable. We appreciate all the extra touches the owners provided, beach chairs and umbrella, cooler, wifi for staying in touch with reality when necessary, BBQ with spare gas tank, comfortable bed and pillows, games, books, the list goes on. Just pack your swimsuit, sunscreen, and slippers, you will be set for a quiet restorative getaway. The beautiful natural beach is about a 5 minute walk, just around the corner, so if you've stocked up on groceries, there is no need to drive again until you leave for the airport...perfect!"

  • 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!"

  • Absolutely beautiful!

    "This was our first trip to Kauai and we were blown away by the spectacular views this place has to offer. You really get a feel for the vegetation with spectacular views of the clouds moving in and the rainbows after a mid-day rain. Extremely private..we never saw anyone while we were there. It is a wonderful space, very open, airy and clean. It had everything we needed for day trips to the beach and outings to the market. Yes, there are neighboring dogs who at times get excited and bark but it is not constant and is in no way a deterrent to the magic this place has to offer. Great location to Northern beaches, markets and town. We never wanted to leave and would highly recommend this amazing place!"
