  • Stunning!

    "Everything about the home and the location was perfect. And they didn't exaggerate the closeness to the stream or the number of turtles. You literally walk down the stairs from the pool/patio to your own private landing and slip into the water to swim with a dozen turtles. And from the landing it is a two minute swim out to the ocean for the best snorkeling we found on Kauai. The house was well equipped and beautiful. We never left the poolside patio unless we were out and about on the island. A fabulous spot that we will recommend to friends and hopefully return to ourselves."

  • Perfect getaway on Poipu

    "We stayed at the Royal Palm Villa (the 2 bdrm, 2 bath) and this rental surpassed all of our expectations. Very clean, an owner that was very accommodating, very spacious, a/c that worked well. We will definitely be back."

  • The perfect house for our Kauai vacation!

    "I did a lot of research before choosing Akala Pua for our Kauai vacation. On paper, the price was good, and the house seemed to meet all our needs. When we arrived, I was pleased that everything was as advertised. As you walk in the front door, the ground floor has 3BD/3BA. This worked well for us, as each of our two kids could have their own bedroom and bathroom. The beds were comfortable. There is also a laundry room with late model washer/dryer. (This really came in handy as our clean clothes started to dwindle near the end of our stay.) Upstairs is a large room with living area, dining area (with large dining table), and a kitchen. The kitchen was well-supplied: the only thing we really needed to buy to cook meals was the food. This room has high vaulted ceilings that added to the sense of space. There were numerous windows all over the house that could let the trade winds in, and ceiling fans in every room. This allowed us to stay relatively comfortable during hot humid days and nights. The location was ideal. A five minute walk west on Lawai road takes you to Lawai Beach, which is a bit rocky, but has good snorkeling (you can rent snorkel equipment right there at Boss Frogs). A five minute walk west takes you to the Kukui’ula Shopping Center with some good restaurants and shops (and generally has several musicians in outside in the evenings to). For shopping, the Kukui’ula Market is about a block away (a lot less expensive than the Living Food Market in the shopping center!). A five minute drive takes you to the Poipu Beach Park, with great swimming/wading for the family, as well as some really good snorkeling. Restaurants in the resort/tourist areas are generally good but expensive. I recommend also trying out diners and cafes frequented by locals as the food is excellent, copious, and reasonable. You sometimes have to search those out. Here are a couple of suggestions: Tip Top Café in Lihue and the Waipouli Deli & Restaurant in Kapaa. We called the management company (Garden Island Rentals) once with a question. They were responsive and friendly. We had a great time in the perfect house for a family."

  • Perfect in every way!

    "How fortunate we were to have found Turtle Cove Cottage on VRBO and booked it for our stay in Kauai! I cannot imagine a more comfortable and convenient spot from which to explore this beautiful island. The updates that have been made to the cottage are great. the interior is bright and airy and the updated kitchen, the washer and dryer and optional outdoor dining area (with gas grill) were all put to good use. I would have been happy to spend all of my down time on the front deck enjoying the ocean views and the company of the neighborhood birds. There are variety of beaches within walking distance. Shopping and dining options are plentiful and also just a short stroll away. Owners Bev and Jeff have provided plenty of helpful information for guests and the management company was quite responsive to our inquiries. We felt very well taken care of! The plan was to visit Maui next time around, but it's hard to imagine that it could be any better than our stay at Turtle Cove Cottage. We may have to rethink that plan!"
