Kauai Vacation Rentals
About Kauai Vacation Rentals
It all began with a vision. A desire to share the magical island of Kauai with the world. And, founder, Lucy Kawaihalau, has dedicated her life to that goal through Kauai Vacation Rentals. "In a vacation rental home or condo, you really feel like you're living here," reflects Lucy, "so bringing together home owners and guests to achieve the 'best fit' is only a part of our distinguished reputation. Our responsibilities are twofold. For our owners, we provide the best management and maintenance services so they can rest easy, knowing their homes are meticulously cared for, since they may be thousands of miles away from their investment. For our guests, we believe they should be treated like royalty." And, it is the respect for the guest that gained Kauai Vacation Rentals recognition throughout the world. A friendly team dedicated to serving the needs of guests, with attention to all the details, makes it all possible. "A vacation to Kauai is so meaningful," adds Lucy. "For some, it may be the trip of a lifetime. For others, it may be a yearly event. This is a splendid place to relax. Our guests are 'energized' when they go home. That's what we mean when we say, 'magical Kauai.' " This genuine business model embodies the Hawaiian word, 'Aloha,' and it has gained much recognition within the industry and business venues, including numerous awards. Many glowing articles have been written, from Kauai Business & Real Estate Magazine, Hawaii Business, and internationally distributed Travel & Leisure Magazine to famed Fortune Magazine. In fact, Lucy Kawaihalau was personally honored with coveted awards from the Small Business Administration and Kauai Chamber of Commerce for her successful business achievements. Lucy concludes, "I am deeply grateful for our recognition and awards. Yet, it is the phone call, with heartfelt and glowing remarks about a visit to Kauai from a satisfied guest that brings us great joy. Therein lies our greatest achievement."
Great Cottage next to beaches
Cottage is adorable and conveniently located next to Brennecke’s and Poipu beaches. It offers a lot of charm missing in the condos that dominant the area. Although it looks small it provides a lot of space with two decent sized bedrooms and on small bedroom with a twin bed. It also has a kitchen and separate dinning area. One small bathroom but the outdoor shower is great addition that frees up the bathroom and prevents a lot of additional sand from making it into the cottage. We loved our stay and would highly recommend the cottage.
Access to the unit was made very easy as they dropped off information and keys at our rental car agency. No additional stops were needed. They also provided information regarding road closures and a schedule for road work on the North side.
We loved the Plantation Cottage!!! It was exactly what we wished for and even more...a sleepy little hideaway in the middle of an overgrown tropical garden on a dead end street. The short walk to the ocean was so perfectly simple and beautiful!!! Thank you for this precious slice of tropical heaven💜
Perfect location, House was adequate
The location could not be beat. It was perfect walk to the beach with my two year old and my 65 year old mother in law.
The house was okay. Beds were comfortable, the outdoor shower was wonderful. The house had plenty of products that were nice like laundry detergent, paper towels, etc... the house was also a little dirty. It had an old Hawaii way that was endearing. There was no air conditioning but the way the house was situated it had great air flow and shade. The only time it was an issue was in the early mornings the birds would make a ton of noise right out the windows. No sleeping in for us but we were fine with that and enjoyed the mornings. The grounds were well manicured and felt very private. The house could have used better, and more, fans as well as more directionals like how to get into the laundry. The front porch is perfect for reading a book in the rain showers. The back patio area is nice for barbecue time. The kitchen is much to hot if we tried to cook inside. The bbq needs an update but it’s adequate and likely the salty environment causes those to need frequent changes.
My only major complaint was the management group that ran the house was not helpful and made things really difficult for us. Alternatively, the actual owner and her friend were very helpful and we were lucky to have run into them. Overall I would say that we would probably stay there again and the vast majority of that is due to its perfect location, excellent grounds/front porch, and very helpful owner.
The perfect cottage in paradise!!!
The Plantation cottage was the perfect home base for our summer vacation. Location was beyond perfect. The house is 1/2 block from the beach. Tropical vegetation around the house is beautiful, comfy beds, well stocked kitchen, amazing outdoor shower, and never ending fresh mangos from the tree in the backyard. I highly, highly recommend you stay here. You won't be disappointed.
