Jasmine Nights was simply said ... delightful!
Our mornings were relaxed with the footsteps of Nalu, the owner's well-mannered yellow lab, greeting us at the door, some fresh brewed complimentary Kauai coffee, and farm fresh range free eggs provided by my brother who has a farm nearby.
Afternoons were spent visiting the many beaches... "Pinetrees" and the pier at Hanalei Bay, pounding surf at Secret Beach, peaceful moments at Moloa'a Beach, a bike ride from Kapa'a up to Anapalau Point with a secret pleasure watching locals cast nets for opelu, and a restful lunch at Donkey Beach, and many more to mention.
Be sure to zipline in Princeville with Princeville Ranch Adventures...if you're fortunate, you will get Mark and Aaron for your guides.
Enjoyed the local's quiet spot at Kilauea Bakery, visited the lighthouse almost ready to reopened after renovations, and be sure to enjoy some shaved ice with some "magic cream" in the middle. Marvelous!!
Overall, the cottage worked well as our home base, kitchen functioned okay (as a few essentials were lacking ...mixing bowl, paring knife, a hot pad or two would have been nice), the outside bbq was a huge benefit, the shower produced wonderfully hot water, towels were abundant, picnic essentials for a travel to the beach and beach chairs were a valued plus, and the clothing washer/dryer was an excellent feature to packing light.
Nalu, the dog, Randy & Jill were all ecellent hosts. Yes, the pup came first as he was the faithful greeter waiting at the door every morning, and every night.
Final word ... well worth the investment to be here instead of the hustle and busyiness of Kapa'a, Poipu, or Waimea.!!
