'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

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!

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 the St. Regis at Princeville charges for a room with a view.
What makes this Cottage unique
Convenience, coupled with the WOW factor Kick + Surprise every time you open 'The Cottage' door, or, when you pop out for snorkeling at Anini reef just below at lovely, secluded, sandy Kaweonui beach cove, or, take a great warm outdoor shower, or, walk the neighborhood, or, ... do any one of the variety of adventures all of which can easily be topped off with a sit/soak in the private large comfortable spa sipping a glass of bubbly. The list goes on and on and on-- in a good way!

Must Stay!! What an amazing place!!
The cottage was amazing and clean. Perfect size for two but could probably fit two kids as well. The hot tub was great and the view even better. Susan was a great host, very responsive and accommodating. I can’t say enough about the location. We explored the island and this location was best. Access to the private beach was just the cherry on top. Definitely recommend. Mahalo
The "Cottage" is the perfect place to stay on the north shore. The first thing you notice is the stunning views of the ocean upon entering. It's private but not isolated and the location is perfect.
Upon arrival we were greeted by 3 Albatross who sang and danced and made us feel right at home.
It's very well appointed and has everything you need for staying in for a relaxing at home breakfast or going out to explore the beaches.
The sunrise over the ocean and the views of the Kilauea lighthouse can't be beaten!
We loved our time here and would stay again without a doubt.
Mahalo Susan and Mama Kauai!!
Mahalo for taking time to write a review. You were such lovely, guests —- uniquely appreciative and in harmony with “our” Kauai and Hawaiian culture. Having you Honeymoon in “The Cottage on Kaweonui Point” was truly, truly, truly my privilege. Please ‘Hele’ (Hawaiian = hurry) back.
Me Ke Aloha,
We enjoyed the cottage immensely. The photos really do depict the gorgeous views. It was a pleasure driving through the beautiful neighborhood. All the little touches of hospitality are well thought out and made for a gracious stay. The hot tub is amazing. We used it each day. My only caution to future guests is to possibly avoid the month of March. All of our previous visits to Hawaii have been in the summer. I guess it can be nice in March but honestly we saw sunshine only 3 out of 10 days. Obviously this does not reflect on the cottage itself but it certainly colored our vacation. Mahalo for providing a beautiful welcoming place to stay.
What a gracious and welcome review. I couldn't have asked for more lovely guests than yourselves. Until we meet again ... A hui hou kakou.
Me Ke Aloha, Susan (owner)
Wonderful accommodations in a gorgeous part of the world!
Lovely spot overlooking the ocean. Wonderful sunrise this morning. Enjoyed our stay very much.
Truly, truly, truly such a pleasure and fun to share my wee bit of paradise with great folks. Hele (Hawaiian=hurry) on back. Puka a ana o ka la e luna ke kai (Hawaiian= sunrises over the ocean) await you.
Me Ke Aloha,
A quiet cottage with broad ocean views on the beautiful north side of Kaui
We stayed at this property late February, 2018 and loved our time there. The house is very clean, quiet and well furnished for a cosy comfortable retreat in the heart of the beautiful Kaui north side. It has a nice (but tiny kitchen) with a small fridge and stovetop. Who wants to cook on vacation anyway? There is a large private deck with lounge chairs and hot tub and an incredible view of the ocean. There are also huge windows lining the bedroom/living room space all with views. To manage expectations better, the path to the beach below the house is narrow, steep and sometimes slippery in places and we found the beach itself to be pretty, but the water too shallow for comfortable snorkeling. No worries, since there are other beaches and places to snorkel on the island or you can take a cruise that includes snorkeling. In general it rains a LOT during the winter on Kaui and most paths are red clay which turns to mud. We found we were not able to do as much hiking and snorkeling as we would have liked due to this. It’s a beautiful island and worth the visit, but beware that there is much more rain than the west side of Maui or the big island.
First, the photos of the view from the deck cannot capture what it's like to wake up to the sound of the waves and look out and see albatross flying and the occasional whale breaching in the distance (cottage has binocs but bring yours if you have them). The view would be enough reason to book the cottage standing alone. The cottage has everything you need to make it the perfect home base to explore Kauai. Big garage with full laundry, all the beach stuff (chairs, snorkeling, cooler, boogie boards, etc.), nice hot tub on the deck, second sun porch out of the wind if it's cool, well-equipped kitchen, and very comfortable living space. You could literally show up with just your clothes and be fine. The owner thoughtfully left us coffee, juice, and snacks for the first morning and had the hot tub warm when we arrived after a long day of travel. You are close enough to Princeville to walk for dinner/drink/groceries, but you are at the end of a cul-de-sac and never hear a car or even another person. Nice path to the beach below (a little careful stepping required in one spot, but not difficult) where the snorkeling was good. Tons of fish. It's like your own private beach. Pro tip for Kauai: if you're planning to do a lot of hiking (like we did), bring a pair of old running shoes you can toss in the trash at the end. They will be muddy beyond belief. Pro tip 2 for Kauai: the food trucks and hole-in-the-wall take out shops are better than the nice restaurants. Highest recommendation for the cottage (and Kauai).
What a pleasure to have such wonderful guests take time to share observations, thoughts and useful insights about "The Cottage", its surrounds, and Kaua'i. If you could see me now, I am sitting here with a gentle-large filled with ALOHA smile. As we say in Hawaiian: Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo nui loa!
