  • Incredible house

    "Stayed for 6 nights with 2 adults and 3 kids. Probably the nicest holiday house I have ever stayed in. Everything we needed was there and was very comfortable and clean and everything worked. Location is amazing with the beach just across the road. Snorkelled with turtles every day! Kauai is just beautiful and the north side is just gorgeous. Would absolutely stay again."

  • Beyond expectation!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The place is wonderful but the most important thing, (impossible to describe with words or pictures) is the feeling that you have staying in this property that has the private path to best beach of the island. We've spent only 3 days, we loved to stay here and had dinner under the best sky ever seen with the milky way over us."

  • Best of the Best!

    "Wow, wow, wow! This was our first stay at Fortune Cottage and we will be back. The cottage is large, clean, perfectly equipped (kitchen gear/beach gear and towels) and perfectly located if you are looking for a relaxing stay. It's probably best for one couple, a couple with small children or a small group of girlfriends as the wall between the bedrooms is not solid (louvered windows). It was just the two of us so it was perfect. I never once showered inside as there is something magical about showering outdoors, even in the rain. We ate most of our meals on the deck just off the kitchen or on the front deck since this truly is the best seat on the island. The location is remote enough to be peaceful, but close enough to Princeville to be convenient to run to the store for a last minute need. Theresa was super helpful and responded to our questions immediately (Thanks Theresa!). Heaven is being able to walk out the front door directly to the beach with morning coffee in hand, jump on a paddle board (Rented in Kilauea) and spend the morning drifting about watching sea turtles pop up for air. Vacations past have been adventure filled busy days, but this time we hated the thought of leaving the property so we mostly stayed at home exploring and enjoying Anini Beach. I can't say enough good things about Fortune Cottage and so grateful we discovered this little piece of paradise. Go, go, go!!!"

  • Unforgettable Family Vacation

    "My family of 6 (adults) stayed at Hale Kai for 7 magical days in October and we were so sad to leave on our last day! As one of the other reviewers wrote, Hale Kai changed the way we’ll plan our Hawaiian vacations forever. No more of the mega cookie-cutter resorts where you have to drive every day to a swimming beach lugging all your beach gear. The beach on this property is pretty much in the front yard! Needless to say we were out in the warm ocean practically every morning and afternoon. We appreciated the beach gear that the house provided: beach chairs, foam noodles, boards, floaters, etc. (we did bring our own snorkeling gear). The view from the balcony is unforgettable, the forest in the back calming. This is the tropics – so we saw lizards and spiders here and there (not a big deal), but the mosquitos can be bothersome. We just made sure that we’ve sprayed ourselves with mosquito repellant when we’re hanging out on the deck in the evenings. Of course, the house is fully screened so no worries when you’re inside. We were pleased with the layout of the living areas i.e. living, kitchen and dining rooms. We were able to spread out yet still be in conversation with everyone. The furnishings are what I would call “lived-in” – simple, comfortable and clean. The kitchen is roomy and has everything you need to cook, bake or clean. We found pots and pans, silverware, dining ware, serving platters, bowls, baking pans, cloth dish towels, plastic garbage bags, dishwashing liquid, cleaning spray, basic spices, etc. The weather was in the 80’s, a little warm than we expected, but the house is equipped with ceiling and floor fans in all areas so we were comfortable 24/7. The location of the house is on a quiet stretch of Anini Beach, hardly any tourists if at all. A minor inconvenience, which is not the owner’s fault, is the lack of cell phone service (there must not be any cell towers in the area). However the house provides for free Wi-Fi so we were never without internet, and had unlimited (domestic) use of the landline telephone. All in all, this was one of the best vacations my family has ever had and we definitely hope to come back soon!"
