Anahola Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The Beach Cottage is on a white sand beach, with a surrounding barrier reef. Making for excellent conditions for swimming, snorkeling or just floating. Walk down the beach a ways, where the waves break bigger, and try your luck at a little Body Boarding or Body Surfing. Magical sunrises and early morning walks on our white sand beach, are free of charge. Walk for hours and not see another person but a fisherman up at dawn throwing his nets. Here you will find yourself in the essence of Kauai with the healing sounds and smells of the cool Pacific Ocean. Witness the true natural beauty of Kauai, like nowhere else. We've aimed to keeping the Beach Cottage as simple and open as possible, so as to maximize the interaction of man and nature. The Native Hawaiian foliage surrounding the Beach Cottage will leave you with a feeling of peace and harmony. Our units target the eco-adventure type of visitors, who appreciate being out in nature and the natural surroundings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a honeymoon getaway! After a travel day of 20 hrs all the way from Philadelphia, PA, we have made it to this quaint and beautiful Hawaiian Cottage!



It has been a magical and peaceful trip much to the thanks of this Cottage.

The mornings were beautiful and showering between the mountains and the ocean was therapeutic.



Aloha for this amazing experience.

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
If you like to stay in a run down shack, then this is the place. the pictures are very outdated. The beach was not swim friendly unless you like the huge waves and drop off. I realize that the geckos run freely inside but their poop all over is discusting. The cockroaches in the coffee maker was the last straw we left after one nite!! Oh and the place is not at all secure make sure you take all your valuables with you every time you leave. Very humid and hot inside everything is always damp even the bed. Not private at all there is houses on both sides, one is right next to the outdoor shower! And if your not sure about their rules just read the front of the fridge it's written on it in felt pen Also don't brush your hair inside or use soap or you will be charged an additional fee!! So tacky!!

Owner's Response: The beach just steps away from your rental is constantly changing. We cannot predict the condition the ocean will be in. 80% of the time the ocean is calm and very pleasant and the swimming and snorkeling is wonderful. There are waves and a drop off when a storm comes in but that only lasts a few days and the sand gets replaced and there is no "drop off", we are sorry you were here on a rough sea day but there is nothing we can do about that.
We found a humane method for catching and releasing the geckos, so they won’t be a problem any longer.
We have a lock box in every unit to keep your valuables in so you do not have to take them with you but did not write that on the fridge only in the greeting notes so I guess you missed it. This is why we have to write things on the fridge in marker pen so you won't miss it.
If you would state correctly we ask that you do not use BAR SOAP as we have natural wood and the soap scum gets in the wood and can’t be removed, so that there are big white globs on the wood...very hard to remove. We furnish all the liquid soap you need. There is a rug that catches the hairs which then need to be removed by hand making it a very tedious job when a few steps out the door and the hairs can be taken by the breeze and fodder for the birds nests.
Regarding the bug in the kitchen... the kitchen is outside, as shown in our website - no surprises here. Half of the Cottage is outside and what makes it so enjoyable, especially because you are right up to the ocean. The Cockroach critters are more like waterbugs than roaches, they don’t bother us but we can understand how they might be frightening for someone who is not used to being outdoors in a tropical environment. We now use roach motels in the Cottage which has about eliminated them. We can’t promise that you won’t see one but they are definitely not a problem.
Since this review we have decided to lower the price for our Cottage unit. We’ve realized that having the higher price was creating greater
expectations from our guests. We want everyone to be completely happy with the Cottage and feel like they are getting their money's-worth. Please enjoy our lower rate, and be assured that 95% of our guests are thrilled with the Cottage, but there are those 5% who really should not be in an outdoor-exposed, open unit in the tropics. If you feel like you are one of those 5% please keep searching, and enjoy your stay on our beautiful island Kauai.

Wonderful Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Steve and I absolutely loved the beach cottage! The atmosphere Nana created in the cottage, beach, energy of the place, the owner of the cottage (Nana) were all awesome. Loved hearing the waves all night, waking up to have coffee on the beach (which is 60 feet away from cottage, magical), watching the sunsrise, watching the sand crabs appear and fling up the sand as they dig thier holes, enjoyed having a small gecko pet in our room greet us with a good morning chirp. The place is exactly what we were looking for. I loved the outdoor shower, looking at the waves, mountains, full moon as I rinsed off...Quiet, private, true hawaii experience. Once we saw the place and the beach, we had no need to go anywhere else. I highly recommend this beach cottage for a romantic, peaceful experience. The owner Nana is wonderful..We will always stay at this beach cottage when we return.

We booked this unit for a week but only stayed one night. This unit is acceptable if one is unwilling to share your dwelling with centipedes, roaches and geckos. The kitchen is outside under an overhang. That washer/dryer are on adjacent premises. When we found this unit unacceptable the owner refused to refund any of our money. If you enjoy camping out this unit would work for you otherwise keep looking. We had saved for our dream trip to Kauai and it turned out to be a disappointment.

Owner's Response: We are sorry our accommodation didn't meet your expectations but it's highly unlikely that you saw a centipede, the perimeter of this unit is sprayed every month by pest control. Seeing a roach was unfortunate and we do our best to prevent them, but we are in the tropics and even at the most expensive hotel on the island you are bound to see a roach at some point during your stay. Same goes for the geckos, sounds like you should have chosen another destination, and not an off the beaten path cottage on the beach in Hawaii. This unit is a little like camping but with the comforts of a bed, bathroom, kitchen, indoor and outdoor shower with more privacy and better proximity to the ocean than you would find at any campground.

What an experience!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and we had the time of our lives!! The feeling of waking up to the sunrise at your feet and the sound of waves hitting the shore is so good for the soul. I have never been so relaxed. The design of the cottage is everything we dreamed of: small, with a big porch, lots of space outside, plus a kitchen, hammocks, outdoor shower, and charcoal grill. Although the property does not provide 100% privacy, as there are occasional neighbors in sight, 99% of the time you have total peace and quiet. No loud roads nearby. Our favorite thing about the cottage was making our breakfasts on the lanai and watching the sun come up over coffee.

Anahola is a small town in between Kapaa and Kilauea on the island of Kauai, when you drive through Anahola you hardly know it's a town or that it's near the ocean. But just one short mile down our road and it opens up to Anahola Bay with a stream and lot's of sand. Bigger waves on one side of the bay for body surfing or body boarding, and on the other a nice barrier reef where you can snorkel and enjoy the protection from the waves. We are on the side with the barrier reef but we also have a sandy beach.
