Reviewer Comments:

This cottage is perfect for a small family or 2 couples that do not mind sharing a bathroom. It has been remodeled from top to bottom beautifully. There is a toilet and an open air shower across from the house but not a sink (yet). The house came well equipped with everything we needed and the location is ideal!

Owner's Response: Aloha Caterina and Rob! Often times it just takes one visit to hook you into the island. And a stay on the shores of Hanalei makes moving here even more enticing! We look forward to seeing you again!

Our stay was fantastic. The cottage was as advertised - a great location, clean, and easily accessible. It was a perfect option for a couple or couples looking to get away, surf, or just relax and enjoy their privacy. The Hawaii Life team was responsive leading up to and during our trip, but also stayed out of the way.

Reviewer Comments:

Yet another great trip to Kauai.Thanks Hawaii Life team...especially Krisha...she took great care of us!! The house is a good one...well kept & convenient to everything. I do have a few suggestions...these are shared with kindness and only meant to improve an already nice property...we LOVE an outdoor shower and would have showered outdoors with more frequency had there been a better shower head, warm water and a shelf for soap, shampoo, etc...sadly, the indoor shower backed up with some frequency so a good outdoor shower would have been GREAT. Also, it would be so nice if there were a pair of chaise lounges for the yard...if the beach is windy or if feeling lazy it would be great to have a chaise lounge to relax on and read a book. Lastly, we caught a few days of hot muggy weather... during the days it wasn't so bad because you are outside most of the time and there is usually a slight breeze and you can cool off in the ocean...but the lack of insulation in this old house made evenings HOT. A small in-wall AC unit in the master bedroom would have made all the difference and provided a good nights sleep. I feel these items need to be addressed to make this a truly desirable property. I checked "No" in the "would you recommend this property to a friend" category because I think the above issues need to be addressed... were they addressed I would definitely recommend this property. PS...i'm I saw the upper shelves in the kitchen and the bath...those definitely hadn't been cleaned in awhile...kind regards, Eric

Owner's Response: Aloha Eric, Thank you for your comments. The Bay Surf Cottage is an older home but you can't beat the location. Good news is that the entire home has been gutted and going through a complete remodel. Many of these suggestions will be addressed. We look forward to your return to Kauai. Mahalo, Kahea

House Needs Work

Reviewer Comments:

House definitely needs work. When there is no breeze, the fans have no effect on cooling the house. Much of the furniture has damaged rattan or is water stained. The woodwork on the bar had been rubbed raw from the seats in front of the bar. The gate was falling apart and literally fastened with a bungy cord. There weren't even proper wine glasses. At $600 a night (before fees), I would expect much better.
