READ a few guest comments:

'Guest Rating: ***** 5-Star. The Cottage is a perfect place for a getaway with someone you hold dear. The view is worth more, way more, than what is regularly charged to stay in "The Cottage". Also, the close proximity to everything on the north shore is a big plus!'

Paul D., Oakland, CA

'Besides the drop-dead views, location, et al, of this true 5-star lodging, we have to mention the tremendously comfortable bed, lovely quality linens, pillows, decor,... just everything is want-to-take-home-for-my-own-house GREAT!' Lois and Jim, Denver, CO

'Even more beautiful than we had been told. The peace and lack of 'hotel feel' made our honeymoon stay and us feel special...like we really earned bragging rights to an inside track to paradise.' PAUL & JULIE, Turlock,CA

'What an inspiring setting. Gosh! It's exciting just doing nothing except being awestruck at the views, changing sky, waters on the reef. To think we were actually lucky enough to spend two weeks here! We pinch ourselves each morning.' MARY & STEVE, Milwaukee,WI

'Thanks for the terrific environment and luxurious, casual comfort. The Princeville Makai Golf course and resort facilities were so convenient-fabulous-unsurpassed as were the sightings of whales and north shore hikes.' JESSICA & ROBERT, Seattle,WA

'Your place was the ideal setting for us to rekindle the joy, love and excitement that began our marriage 25 years ago. The vistas, privacy, location on the North Shore were all awesome. We have stayed in luxurious hotels all over the world but the privacy of your place...well, it's a love nest! We will forever be grateful for sharing your home with us.' MARYBETH & MEL, Evansville, IN

'We had a fabulous time in Kauai and your remarkable site here made it very special. We spent a lot of time just watching the whales jump. Thank goodness for washing machines! We got credibility muddy from some of the best hiking we've ever done. Waking up to the beautiful sunrise behind the Lighthouse was perfect.' G.T.& ELAINE, Dallas,TX

'We had a great time on our 15th wedding anniversary. The place is private and romantic. I don't know how you did it, but, we even felt like locals and adventurers.' JOHN & KATHY, San Jose, CA

'We had a marvelous time here. The Cottage has been more than we could have imagined! The view was truly incredible. This was the BEST place to honeymoon! LAUREL & DON, Spokane,WA

'"The Cottage" was beyond our expectations. The views were awesome and the ambiance unique. There are few places where you can fall asleep to the crashing surf on a coral reef. We had a wonderful anniversary.' CRAIG & SUSAN, San Francisco,CA

'What a wonderful setting to enjoy our honeymoon. Your place exceeded expectations with its majestic views, prime location, charming interiors, etc. This is such a stunning island and yours was an ideal lodging from which to explore it.' SCOTT & ALISON, Providence,RI

Why Susan Wilson chose Kauai

"THE COTTAGE" is one-of-a-kind NON-HOTEL ... BUT with hotel views and privacy and comfort and convenience ... and ... at a very great price compared to what's the St. Regis at Princeville charges for a room with a view.

What makes this cottage unique

Convenience, the Wow factor Kick - Surprise every time you open "The Cottage" door, or, when you pop out for snorkeling in the essence of a tropical beach cove just below, or, walk the neighborhood, or, take a lovely warm outdoor shower, or, do any one of countless variety of adventures to be topped off with a sit in the large comfortable spa sipping a glass of bubbly. The list goes on and on and on-- in a good way!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The Cottage" is IT: a five star un-hotel touch of Kauai exceptionalism without the price ($$$$$). Our Honeymoon a stay in "The Cottage" was genius Aloha with its views, location, privacy + spa, beach cove, etc. It's the "complete package".

Kaua'i luxury at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time! Cozy accommodations, ridiculously awesome location, unbelievable views. My wife and I needed a romantic getaway and this was definitely it! The owner was very responsive and made sure that all of our needs were met. The private beach was a monster plus. I honestly don't have anything negative to say as our entire visit was a dream. We can't wait until we can return again.

Thanks again for letting us stay at your island paradise!

Luxury needs some updating

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this property in August 2015 for our 30th anniversary. The expectations were set high due to nightly rate and details on this listing. The property is ready for some significant updates to be called luxurious once again. First and foremost, it is time for air conditioning at this price point. The location and view are nice but many property items were being held together with tape. Bath towels are clean but have bleach stains and need replacements. Many other small items require attention to bring the property back up to the luxury that is written in the guests books from 10 years ago.

it is odd that this is the first review posted.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review. Your comments are appreciated. Sometimes it is hard to have all aspects of "The Cottage" in ship shape when guests arrive a couple of hours early, which is what happened. I should have noticed the cleaning service had not slid open the under-window sill-vent airflow system, or, put out the correct set of towels. You are right, the towel set placed in "The Cottage" for your stay did have a couple of bleach spots. I'll be sure those are not mixed in with the linen again. I wish you would have let me know about your disappointment. I certainly could easily have provided towels to your liking and made sure the window airflow system was open. We've had a very warm summer. Unanticipated for Kauai North Shore, but, I've since made sure a nice floor fans is placed in "The Cottage". Subsequent guests have let me know they were quite comfortable. You mention why guests have not posted comments. I think they felt writing in the guest book keep in The Cottage about their enjoyment and appreciation would be most lastingly appreciated by myself as owner and by all the wonderful guests who embrace sharing fun and joy. And, I understand your comments were made in good faith... though, a bit on the mean side other than constructive. Me ke aloha, Susan Wilson owner
