  • 10 Great Days!

    "The house was the perfect size for two couples - spotless and had every amenity imaginable. The location is perfect for the western side of the island vacation we had planned."

  • GREAT PLACE TO STAY ON THE WESTSIDE

    "We stayed at the Kala Beach Cottage from 04/09 – 04/16. After a couple initial incidents, which were handled promptly by Sarah, the remaining stay was uneventful and quite relaxing. The service person even stopped by a day later to see if any other problems had arisen. What great service. If you want to get away from the resort areas and just relax without the hustle and bustle that comes with that lifestyle, the west end is the place to stay. Kekaha is a quiet town almost at the end of the road, with very little happening after the sun goes down. Being located across from a school was not a problem, as all the keiki waiting for school did not create a ruckus. Did not even know they were there. The cottage is located 1 block from Kekaha State beach and comes fully stocked with everything you need except for food, which can be purchased in Waimea (3 miles east) or on base at PMRF (6 miles west), if you can access the base. There are beach toys, snorkel equipment, beach chairs, umbrella and enough beach towels for a small army. The cottage iis located a short drive from Waimea canyon and Polihale state beach. To access Polihale beach I recommended you have a 4WD vehicle and read your car rental agreement. You do not want to be stuck out there. It is as far as the road goes on the west side of the island and I am sure the tow charge would be the price of another vacation on Kauai. This is our 4th time staying in Kauai and each time we have stayed on the west side. The isolation is what makes this so peaceful and quiet. In addition, the Kala Cottage feels like home. Just a nice place to hang out after the sun sets and allow you to recharge for the next days adventure on the Garden Isle. Would definitely rent this property again next time on the island"

  • Perfect experience all the way around, and only one problem ....

    "The problem? You need to make sure you book excursions and outings well in advance of your arrival or you will NEVER LEAVE THIS HOUSE. It's comfortable, spacious, well furnished, thoroughly updated ... you feel like you're in Kauai back in the 30's when sugar was king, but still have all the amenities of the 21st century. When you book a year in advance there's a lot of time to worry about details. But by the time our family and an aunt arrived all the worries fell away one by one: * Isn't it a long way away from Lihue and the north shore attractions? Yes, but the island is small enough that we could make several excursions to the north and east sides and come back with plenty of time for swimming and reading at the house. * No A/C? Yes, but the front doors open to the ocean breeze and every room and lanai has one or two huge Hunter fans. It was breezy and cool every day and I had to use a blanket at night. On the day of our arrival it was humid and still, but very day afterwards we had perfect sea breezes. * Right by a highway? Yes, but with the surf running all day and night you hardly notice. You're also pretty close to the end of the road, so traffic is limited enough that we never waited more than 5 seconds before crossing over to the beach. * Can you even see the sun set into the ocean with Niihau in the way? Nope, not in July ... but the colors are so incredible and the surf so harmonious it doesn't matter. We thought about driving around to Polihale for a better view, but every night's sunset from the upper veranda or down on the rocks was perfect. * Doesn't it rain a lot in Kauai? Yes -- 450 inches a year on Mt Waialeale just a few miles away. But down in Kekaha we barely had two small showers in 11 days, and perfect weather all other times. In short, everything I worried about came to nothing. The kids had a blast naming all the geckos (Two-Tail Timmy was a favorite), my 70+ year old Aunt had no problem navigating the broad stairs and getting in our out of the pool. There was room for all of us to be together, claim a quiet hammock, or do "coffee and guitar" on a veranda. Highly recommend Sunrise Helicopter tour, Na Pali coast our with Capt Andy, a kayak/hike up the Wailea river to Secret Falls, & Koloa Zipline was an awesome experience. All made better by the fact we'd be coming back to this gracious house when done. We looked at a lot of Kauai houses: so glad we picked this one."

  • Unforgettable!!

    "Words can't express the beauty of this island and its untouched treasures... Wish I could post pics... The house was in a great location for winter as it rarely rained and was warm even in December... We traveled the whole island and the east side was much wetter and cold... You can watch the sunrise and sunset from the backyard and we also saw two whales jump out of the ocean while watching the sunset... The Canyon is just down the road ... One of our favorite beaches is near the house too, at Polihale... Neil and Michelle were both wonderful and responsive to any and all of our needs or wants... The house is well stocked and we cooked everyday and ate outside by the firepit... The hot tub was nice as well. You will need a car to get around for groceries (grocery store 5 min away) and sightseeing...the house is a good size and comfortably slept all 6 of us ... The yard is just beautiful and we had bananas picked right from nature... Michelle was always polite and helpful... Thanks again for one of the most memorable vacations we have had!"
