Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to reach out and tell you that our stay at the cottages was absolutely amazing! The house was completely set-up with everything we needed for our week's stay. Having rented other houses in other locations in the past, I can say that the cottages are the best! Simple amenities like dish soap, a sponge and paper towels are all an excellent perk. The beach equipment available--boogie board, chairs and umbrella--are also such a nice feature. Our vacation in Hanalei was one we'll remember for years to come...and one we hope to repeat very soon. We will be in touch next year to reserve two cottages--we have now told all our friends and family to come with us to relax and enjoy the best part of Kauai.

Hanalei Dolphin Cottage 2

  • 4 of 5
This is a great cottage by the Hanalei River and within very easy walking distance to Hanalei shops and restaurants and an easy walk to the beach. We stayed for a week and found it extremely comfortable with great views of the river and outrigger canoeists practising at night. With is 2-3 bedrooms (1 is a bed in a lounge area) I would recommend it for couples or a small family. You can hire kayaks nearby and kayak up the river to the bird sanctuary. Hanalei Bay is a great base on the island for the Na Pali coast and just chillin' out.

Hanalei Cottage

  • 4 of 5
The Hanalei Dolphin cottage was perfect for us. It was clean, well equipped, and walking distance shops, restaurants and the beach. The river location is very peaceful -- it was fun watching kayakers and paddlers pass by. We have already recommended this cottage to others.

Great Location

We could not have asked for much more in a vacation rental. The Dolphin cottage was clean and comfortable. Being right on the Hanalei river was great for daily kayaking and paddle boarding and only a few steps to the fish market or Dolphin restaurant. The shops in Hanalei are a couple minutes walk away. Our host was very friendly and responded to calls and emails promptly. I look forward to staying again!

Great cottage in an amazing spot

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to spend a week!
The cottages are in a beautiful location, nicely kept and very clean (we stayed in Cottage IV).

We found everything we could possibly need for an amazing week in paradise:
- clean, practical kitchen with plenty of dishes, cooking utensils, even paper towels, Saran Wrap and cleaning supplies, basic cooking oils, soy sauce and S&P. Everything else (including amazingly cheap, fresh fish!) can be picked up at a couple of little supermarkets within 5 mins walk)
- good beds with nice bedding, ceiling fans for balmy nights.
- Plenty of towels and even soap provided in the bathroom. The outdoor shower is basic but amazing! There's also an indoor shower and plenty of hot water.
- the beach towels, chairs, body boards and umbrella were great! They got a lot of use!

Mornings, having your cup of tea or fruit smoothie by the river, watching the hibiscus flowers float by, wishing the first kayakers a 'good morning' as they paddle upriver... I wish every day could start like this!
It's a peaceful spot, yet only a 5 min walk into 'downtown' Hanalei to get coffee and scrumptious waffles as Hanalei Coffee Roasters or a MaiTai in the evenings.

One tip for future travellers (and a reminder to myself for our next visit)- bring warm clothing/ pajamas for the nights. I underestimated the temperature and packed light, summery PJs, then had to ask the very helpful Lucas for extra blankets, which he dropped by within the hour.
Hanalei (in January) is a humid and sometimes stormy place, so when the temperature cools at night things can feel a little damp and chilly. There is no heating, which is fine, just bring your warm PJs and you'll be toasty.

We're fairly adventurous travellers, staying well clear of resorts and big hotels and this was by far the nicest and best kitted-out accommodation we've stayed in yet!

If you're looking for tranquility and a beautiful setting while still being within easy walking distance of awesome coffee and waffles as well as one of the most beautiful and scenic beaches in the world, I'd highly recommend this place to you!

Very convenient and comfortable. Love the location on the river. Everything is in walking distance. We enjoyed having our own paddleboards and jumping out on the river. We will be back!

A wonderful hawaiian experience

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our comfortable cosy little cottage on the river at Hanalei. The decor was wonderfully hawaiian and the atmosphere was welcoming, clean and tidy.
It was great to have a washing machine and dryer at our disposal and the outside shower was a buzz!
Hanalei was a beautiful experience on its own but it made it so nice to have lovely accomodation!
