An amazing experience
I cannot say enough about Holly and Rick. They were so accommodating, making my husband and I feel like we were right at home. It's definitely not easy traveling with a 9 month old but they had set up the place to make our stay as easy as possible. We trusted them so much that they even watched our daughter one day while we went out on a boat tour of the NaPali coast.
My husband and I have traveled all over the world and this was by far our favorite place we've ever stayed. Every morning we would go in the backyard and pick fresh papayas, oranges, bananas, and avocados for breakfast. Our daughter would light up every morning when we walked over to see their 2 pet pigs, 2 friendly cats and their loving dog Hunter (a bonus to the place). The cottage was so cozy and decorated with such charm. I can not say enough about our stay. Look no further, this is the place!
Mahalo for your very gracious review. We loved having you all here and it was a delight to get to know your precious baby.
We're so happy that you loved it here and were able to take advantage of our fruit trees. There is nothing like waking up and picking your own fruit for fresh orange juice, a smoothie, fruit salad and much more.
Our animals are our lives here and we're so happy to share them with our guests.Thank you for your wonderful words of gratitude. We so appreciate them and YOU!
We hope to see you all again one day. Till then, be well and A...LO......HA !! 🌺🐬
beautiful and restorative, a perfect little haven for someone with mcs like mine.
i'll say up-front that holly's cottage is a perfect getaway for anyone looking to stay in a natural, lush, beautiful, less-touristy place on kauai. she's thought of every little detail and has everything available for her guests, which she attends to quickly, gracefully and with complete, satisfying help when you reach out. and we did! she gave excellent recommendations and tended to all our needs via text.
i'm going to give a different type of review- the one that i'm really looking for when i need to find somewhere to stay.
as someone who reacts poorly to synthetic chemicals (specifically the fragrances in laundry detergents and air "fresheners"), i was absolutely relieved to find holly's little chem-free hideaway when we booked a trip to kauai. in a sea of rental companies that are using the cheapest products or homeowners that don't realize the toxicity of artificially scented products and air fresheners, it's hard to find a safe place to stay. i wish it were easier to find an rental like this. let me tell you, they are incredibly rare. the home is super clean, uses a lot of the same products we use at home and lived up to our MCS standards (i only have intolerable reactions to synthetics, if you're using this as an MCS standard to determine your stay. i'd check with holly beforehand if you have specific needs around this). it wasn't just the fragrance-free part that worked so well for us. we're really invested in sustainable systems and protecting our planet and we were incredibly happy to be able to stay at a home where those needs were met, too! what a great surprise.
the property, itself, is beautiful and the land borders blm (i think) land. there's a waterfall in the kapaa stream (i think) behind the house where i had beautiful meditations in the mosquitos off-hours. everything was in full flush after the catastrophic level rains that had just come through. still, it was spectacular.
we're so grateful to her husband, rick, for all of his assistance and fantastic hospitality throughout our stay. there wasn't a single thing we were missing or had want of while we were there. on our last night, i really needed to get some writing done before heading back to the mainland. my partner and rick hung out for a good while and talked shop, which was a sweet and perfect way to end our vacation. we'd both been on the work grind so consistently, relentlessly and we needed a private, quiet place to be.
we got exactly what we needed.
Amazing hosts and charming cottage
My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Holly’s and Ricks cottage. Despite the constant rain we still had a fantastic time on the beautiful island ! The cottage definitely had a Hawaiian feel and everything about it was top notch standards. Everything you could possibly need is there and the waterfall on the property is gorgeous. Picking fruit from the fruit trees and feeding Lucy the pig was something we looked forward to every morning. The songbirds in the morning and the beautiful flowers in the yard just added to the charm.. EverythIng we needed was in the sport shack and more. We were sad to leave and definitely plan on returning. Thank you for being such great hosts.

Very clean and comfortable cottage with many perks (great hospitality - humans and critters, fresh fruit and flowers to pick in backyard, everything we might need (from a kitchen full of gadgets including a juicer, to a shed full of beach gear, to a closet full of beach towels, bags, water bottles, etc. to extra requested items from Rick's garage like a tarp and WD-40). Highlight was the private, outdoor whirlpool tub.
A beautiful spot in Kauai. The rental is furnished nicely with great kitchen amenities and a lanai.
The owners have a big yard with lots of citrus that we ate daily. The house is near the mountains and there are many beautiful spots to visit.
An Amazing Peaceful Retreat
This cottage was a wonderful find & had so much to offer......but Holly & Rick are what really made it a stand out. They take care in the details in their sweet rental house even making it as allergen free as possible. My allergies were non existent while there & that was great!! Holly & Rick both exude the genuine spirit of "Aloha" one hears about throughout Hawaii. They love Kauai, want to share this, & provided us everything we could think of while on our vacation there. Their backyard is a beautiful, lush paradise with all kinds of fruit trees. We enjoyed the avacadoes, oranges, grapefruit, limes.....we loved Lucy, the pig...the sweet outdoor cats & a loving dog. A short hike behind the house & you arrive at a lovely waterfall. They have a well stocked & organized Sports Shack for their guests. We put the coolers & beach chairs into our car & were able to pack lunches, pick up fresh fish, & catch some sun on the beaches if we chose. The outdoor shower was great at the end of our day. We experienced the colorfulness of Kauai weather while there.....sun, thunder & lightening, wild rains, flood warnings, more sun, gorgeous starry nights & wonderful gentle breezes. We loved being in a quiet Kauai neighborhood & out of the buzz of the town. We really relaxed into the gentleness of this lovely home, the welcoming owners, & the wonders of Kauai. This is a vacation we will never forget!!
