“Amazing Cottage...Surpassed All Expectations”

We absolutely loved our stay at the Honeymoon Cottage in Anahola from 2/2/17-2/13/17. The cottage was clean, beautifully appointed and very well set up. My husband and I agreed we would be very happy to live in such a lovely place. Access to the quiet, private beach was easy. The water was usually quite calm as there is an off shore reef that protects that the area allowing for great snorkeling and swimming. Deanna and Dave were lovely hosts, providing us with all the support and help we needed and wanted. We would happily stay at the cottage again if we are fortunate enough to return to the Garden Isle.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We try so hard to make each guest feel cared for and appreciated, without being intrusive. I hope we did that for you two. We rank Kauai our favorite island so we are glad you feel the same. Come back to see us again, :D&D

“great location”

The cottage is perfectly located so that one has a reasonable drive to north Kauai, farmer's markets, great beaches and town. Quiet and comfortable. The island has a cockroach problem and is always damp so mold is an issue for those who are sensitive to it. I have stayed in kauai 4 other times and this is the first time we have had roaches but with a kitchen, one has to expect them I think. The cottage needs updating badly and better cleaning but it was clean enough.

Thanks for the info. We have been having problems with Terminix lately but I will talk to corporate to see if we can get better service. Sorry about the cleaning, our new girl must need more training.

“The Honeymoon Cottage was absolutely wonderful!”

We had such a great time in Kauai! Staying at the Honeymoon Cottage was such a treat. It was perfect for what we were looking for. The beach was just steps away and the birds would sing to us everyday. The location was great for a day trip to the North or the South. We saved so much by cooking most meals in the cottage and enjoying the bbq on the lanai. Our only disappointment was that the owners, Dave and Deana, were on vacation during our stay. We wish we could have enjoyed time with them as so many of the reviews expressed what great hosts they were. We would highly recommend the Honeymoon Cottage for your stay in Kauai.

Thanks for your kindness. We usually leave the island late March and April to help family with taxes and take a little vacation time for ourselves. So sorry we missed you. Happy summer 2016.

“Lovely private location”

Our stay at The Honeymoon Cottage was wonderful. Dave & Deana were very gracious hosts. As other reviewers mention, Dave offers to have you accompany him on his morning walks. I'd recommend doing this for at least one walk, he gives you an insider guide to the island but mostly educates you on the abundant variety of plant life and fruits growing naturally in the area.

The photos of the beach just off the property do not do it justice, it is very private and usually has turtles feeding right in front of you early in the morning. Hypnotic to watch them while the sun rises. The lanai out back was our favorite spot to sit and relax (after the beach).

The location is off the beaten path but very centrally located to Hanalei Bay and Poipu, both very tourist friendly areas. That said, if you want the resort style vacation this isn't a place for you. It's good for someone who wants more privacy and a self-sufficient vacation.

The only reason my rating is not excellent is because the cottage could use a few updates - the humid, salty air wears on a property quickly so it felt like time to refresh it a bit. The kitchen could also use a few more amenities but was sufficient for the amount of cooking we did.

Excellent place for a honeymoon! after the activity of getting married was passed we needed a quiet place to base our honeymoon and this place fit the bill!
it's a nice size and is located almost in the middle of the east coast so is great for trips north or south.
David and his wife are excellent hosts and we really enjoyed our morning hikes with him, it really added a nice touch to staying there.
It has a great beach that offers good snorkeling and almost to yourself!
