Why Mary Ellen Turk chose Kauai

We traveled the world seeking a warm tropical home where we could garden and enjoy the ocean--Anini is the prettiest spot we ever saw!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted you to know that we had a wonderful time at the cottage. The location was the best! The north shore definitely was the prime location. We went to Ke’e beach on Monday and snorkeled, and tried to hike the trail there. It was wet and slippery and I chickened out. My sister was bound and determined to hike back to the waterfall, and so she did by herself on Friday. She absolutely loved it! While on the island, we went to the canyon, kayaked up the river in Hanalei, visited the lighthouse, the botanical garden by Ke’e beach, but the best time we had was in the cove right across the street from the cottage.

On Wednesday, which was my 60th birthday, I had wanted to snorkel at Tunnels. We got there and the water was so rough and the lifeguard said no one could go in the water on the whole north side of the island. I was devastated. We went back to the cottage and walked across the street to the beach and saw that the cove was so calm. So we went snorkeling there and ran into this big guy! (see attached) It was calm and perfect snorkeling and the best birthday ever! We snorkeled there the next few days and saw this guy each day and a few other turtles as well.

Anyway, I just wanted you to know that we all had a terrific time. John was so helpful. He brought us eggs several mornings and was available if we needed anything. We used the grill one night and loved that we were able to make our own meals. It was also wonderful to have access to a washer and dryer!

Thanks again so much. I’m now trying to convince my husband that Plumeria cottage would be a perfect place for his 60th birthday next year

A little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful old home, with its lovely yard and wrap around porch. Pleasant meandering stream by the house and the ocean was just across the yard. Appreciated having kayaks and extra snorkle gear to use. Our small family of three stayed here for five nights and it was one of the very best vacations we have every had and we especially liked this north coast location--close to Tunnels beach, hiking, kayaking and just plain relaxing!

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Plumeria Cottage and would love to return there one day. Lovely setting and close to the Anini beach. A home away from home on Kauai. Mahalo

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a terrific location to just walk across to Anini Beach! The house is quite nice. My favorite part is the hot and cold outdoor shower after the sandy beach. We met the host, Bill, who is pleasant and unobtrusive. We appreciated the fresh fruit and flowers on arrival. Thank you Bill and Mary Ellen for offering this lovely place. I will miss the croaking frogs they serenade in an oddly nice way!

Anini house in Kailua

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at the Anini Beach home. It was a great location and a very comfortable home.

All you need for a good night sleep is a set of ear plugs for the 🐔𕀠roosters!!! We got right into the Aloha spirit and relaxed with great food and beach walks. Wonderful week.

My family of five stayed at Plumeria for two weeks. It was the best vacation we ever had. Everything we needed was supplied. All the beach paraphernalia was there for us to use, beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, and even a kayak! It's a short walk across the street to one of the best beaches on Kauai. Annini beach is protected by a barrier reef, so the waves are never too rough. The Plantation style house is decorated beautifully. It was very comfortable for a family of five. There is a huge wrap around porch, and a screened in dining room. There is also an outdoor shower shielded by the the trees that has amazing shower pressure. We felt like this was the true Hawaii experience, and cannot wait to go back! Bill and Mary Ellen are fantastic hosts. Thank you so much for an amazing vacation!

A Classic Cottage Charmer

  • 5 of 5

Plumeria cottage suited our small family perfectly for a nine day stay. The deep eaves protecting the wraparound porch and the screened lanai create very pleasant and comfortable places to relax in. They are also very functional, protecting our hiking, beach, and snorkeling gear from the frequent rains, as our visit coincided with the weather created by Tropical Storm Darby. The house definitely made our stay extremely pleasant, even on some rainy days. Thank you Plumeria!

The furnishings and condition of the house are pretty much exactly as pictured. The walls and floors are made of repurposed redwood wine storage vats..smooth, vintage, and beautiful. There are nice little touches throughout the house, giving it's own unique personality. Keep in mind that this house is older home in a tropical climate, well-maintained but with some infrastructure, furnishings and linens functional but well-used. The house was well-stocked when we arrived. We appreciated the warm and attentive hosts who came by to welcome us and bring a gift of fresh fruit, and show us how to use the fruit picker to get our own papayas off the tree in the yard. They were very responsive to a minor fix of an aging smoke detector starting to chirp. Some maintenance attention to the screens around the screened lanai will be needed within a year or so to keep the integrity of this essential bug-barrier high. We had no issues with mosquitos in the house, but we took care to keep the unscreened French doors closed. The house cools off well with the ceiling fans and the doors and windows with screens open. During low-mosquito periods of the day, the hammock and chairs on the wraparound porch are great places to enjoy the view of the palm tree-lined stream that flows next to house.

We appreciated the use of the two double kayaks under the house. The house is a short portage to the double-reef protected Anini bay, a magical place to explore. Two strong adults can walk the kayaks to the beach access alleys, but it would be a big help if there was a set of wheels/wheelbarrow to make this more accessible to all without the need to hoist them up onto a car. A wish for our next visit here someday!
