Aloha E Komo Mai ~ Welcome to Paradise
Here's what FROMMERS has to say ... Excerpt from their famous guide book:
ALOHA SUNRISE INN rated 2 stars (very highly recommended), a Frommer's 'FIND' ( hidden gem)
'Hidden on the North Shore are these two unique cottages nestled on a quiet 7-acre estate with horses, fruit trees, flowers and organic vegetables. We highly recommend both of these darling bungalows......'
Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We especially enjoyed the details……. the exotic fresh cut flowers in every room, the nostalgic Hawaiian photographs on the walls, the cleanliness overall and the beautifully manicured grounds. As for Kauai……. I find not the right words to describe it’s wonder. I wish I spoke Hawaiian.

With our thanks and appreciation for all you have done to make our stay on Kauai most memorable. The Waimea Canyon hike was certainly the highlight of our stay. We also loved the beaches, mountains, magnificent scenery and the tranquility of the Aloha Sunset Cottage. Your hospitality was above and beyond what we ever would have expected.
With sincere Thanks ~

My wife & I had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this cottage. The kitchen is grand with all the utensils need and a nice BBQ. The bedroom is bright and airy. Catharine & Allan are wonderful to chat with about local things to do. We hope to go back someday soon!
This is an extremely well kept cottage central to everything on the North and East Coasts of Kauai. The cottage is on expansive grounds which are beautiful to wander around in their own right. Great views are just steps away from the cottages front door. Snowflake, the resident porch cat, is a wonderful greeter whether coming home from a hike or dinner. The cottage is secluded by many large natural hedges planted around it letting you enjoy some solitude but know that the owners live on site and there is another rental on the property. Catherine and Allan are superb hosts: informative, friendly, and caring. They are skilled in the art of being there when you need them but never even remotely overbearing or invasive. Finally, the cottage is well equipped to cook all meals and even has a washer dryer for those with longer stays. The description and pictures are very accurate and I would recommend this rental!
Several points for the first time Kauai traveler which are completely out of control of Catherine and Alan so I did not count this in the evaluation:
• Roosters. They are everywhere and they crow all day and night long. Bring ear plugs or use the convenient floor fan provided in the cottage for white noise.
• The cottage is not near the beach, instead it is tucked away in a very quiet, very beautiful neighborhood.
• Mosquitoes. The trade winds were not very active during some of our stay and the mosquitoes were bad. They prevented us from really enjoying the cottages front porch without ample bug repellent.
We will certainly consider another stay at the Aloha Sunset Cottage!
We absolutely loved Kauai and this sweet little cottage! The setting was just perfect for us! Everything we needed was provided (beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards...even sunscreen and bug spray!). Our hosts, Catherine and Allan, were so welcoming and friendly. Catherine helped us before and after we arrived with various travel tips and recommendations (ask her to give you Dolly's number for the wholesale rental car prices!). We felt very well taken care of...we even had fresh fruit (including apple bananas and ruby red grapefruit) grown right there on the property. The setting is simply gorgeous...with many beautiful trees and gardens Catherine has nurtured over the years. So, no need to go to a botanical garden...we had ample flowers and plants right outside our front door! Every morning we would wake up feeling the gentle breeze coming in through the open windows, hearing the birds or light rain. It was such a relaxing and peaceful experience on every level. And, we loved being on the North Shore, away from the resort-like atmosphere. This part of the island never felt crowded...there were so many beautiful beaches to explore, and often very few people around. We walked the beaches, snorkeled, hiked (check out the Secret Beach and Lava Pools!), and enjoyed being together, just the two of us. It was a truly wonderful way to celebrate our 20th anniversary!
This was our first experience with VRBO and it set the bar really high! (We stayed in two other cottages in other parts of Hawaii that were nice, but definitely did not live up to our experience with the Sunset Cottage!) We came here imagining that we would only get to Hawaii once in our lives, but now we are trying to figure out how we can come back! It is so nice to know this little cottage is waiting to welcome us again!
My husband and I stayed at this wonderful cottage for 12 extraordinary days. We have only superlatives to offer; no complaints. The owners, Catherine and Allan, were very gracious and very helpful without being obtrusive. The property is beautifully maintained and landscaped. Breathtaking views of some of Kauai's mountains. Very private. Excellent facilities, everything worked perfectly. We loved having a kitchen for morning coffee and breakfast.
The overall location of the property, on the north shore, is also ideal. New and returning visitors appreciate the fact that traffic is less, and nearby natural and man made amenities (beaches, restaurants etc) are among the best the Island has to offer.
Oh, maybe you will object the occasional 'thump' as the nearby avocado tree as its luscious and delicious fruit fall to the ground.
We traveled all over the island of Kauai and kept agreeing that our location at Sunset Cottage in Kilauea was the best by far. After seeing the crowds at Poipu and surrounding area, we were so thankful to have our quiet retreat up in Kilauea. The cottage is truly magnificent and there is really nothing about it one could not like. If you are looking for peace, tranquility and privacy, then there is no reason to search anywhere else. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had every amenity one could possibly need while traveling. Snorkel gear, beach towels, laundry facilities out back door, rain umbrellas, iron, hairdryer, beach chairs, movies, cds, tv, stereo...(thank you for providing the fun Blue Hawaii CD which we took along with us on every car trip and will forever hold that CD as our "soundtrack" to our week in Kauai). These extra amenities gave us the abiliy to travel light. The best part of our stay was waking up each morning to the amazing birdsong. What an alarm clock! I have never heard birds so pretty as the ones here. Snowflake the cat was a wonderful bonus to have on the property (she only stays on the front porch and never comes inside). The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals at home, dishes, knives, pots, pans, cutlery. Catherine and her husband were wonderful hosts and such lovely, nice people. It's icing on the cake knowing that such a nice property is provided by such loving and caring people who really care about their guests' comfort. Even though they live onsite, in a neighboring house, I never felt a lack of privacy whatsoever. This place is ideal for privacy and "getting away from it all". I actually wish we could have spent more time just relaxing at the cottage, because it was so nice. But we kept very busy as Kauai beckons with beautiful beaches and hiking trails to explore. I highly recommend this cottage, and if i ever return to Kauai know that I will certainly be staying here again.
We stayed here for nine nights. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The owner Catherine greeted us on arrival and was very helpful and welcoming. The cottage was simpley perfect and the surrounding gardens idyllic. Sunset cottage was well equiped and the owners have thought of everything you could want on holiday including deck chairs for the beach, snorkels, boogie boards beach mats and towels to name but a few.
We were very impressed with the attention to detail, It was spotlessly clean and we wanted for nothing.
Our stay coincided with thanks giving celebrations. The owners Catherie and Alan invited us to thanks giving dinner with their friends and family. We had a fantastic night and were overwhelmed by their hospitality and generosity.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.
(Alan & Catherine if you read this, thanks again for making our holiday perfect)
