The entryway has been stamped with local ferns and palms. Around the corner is your private custom lanai, complete with hot outdoor shower, jetted tub, teak table and chairs, lounge chair and outdoor gas barbecue on beautiful farm raised ipe wood decking.

We do as the Hawaiian's do and leave our shoes in a little cubby outside by the door. It is a wonderful custom, both respectful of the home and helps to keep the outside where it belongs. Come relax, in your home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excerpts from a thank you card received,

Dear Holly & Rick,

I wanted to thank you so much for your hospitality. Your home and property are amazing. We had such a wonderful time. Should we find ourselves fortunate enough to visit again, we will definitely want to stay with you. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fruit and all the equipment in the sports shack! We were able to experience so many beautiful places while we were there. After all we had been through before our arrival, it was such a blessing to find time to heal in such an amazing place. May God bless and keep you well. The world would be a better place with more wonderful people like you. In love, D & M

An amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about Holly and Rick. They were so accommodating, making my husband and I feel like we were right at home. It's definitely not easy traveling with a 9 month old but they had set up the place to make our stay as easy as possible. We trusted them so much that they even watched our daughter one day while we went out on a boat tour of the NaPali coast.

My husband and I have traveled all over the world and this was by far our favorite place we've ever stayed. Every morning we would go in the backyard and pick fresh papayas, oranges, bananas, and avocados for breakfast. Our daughter would light up every morning when we walked over to see their 2 pet pigs, 2 friendly cats and their loving dog Hunter (a bonus to the place). The cottage was so cozy and decorated with such charm. I can not say enough about our stay. Look no further, this is the place!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your very gracious review. We loved having you all here and it was a delight to get to know your precious baby. We're so happy that you loved it here and were able to take advantage of our fruit trees. There is nothing like waking up and picking your own fruit for fresh orange juice, a smoothie, fruit salad and much more. Our animals are our lives here and we're so happy to share them with our guests.Thank you for your wonderful words of gratitude. We so appreciate them and YOU! We hope to see you all again one day. Till then, be well and A...LO......HA !! 🌺🐬

A true Hawaian experience

  • 5 of 5

Holly and Rick were wonderful hosts. Despite this being our 6th visit to Kauai Holly was able to fill us in on some new areas to explore. Our son loved waking up in the morning and walking around the grounds. It was a very nice way to wake up in the morning before heading out for the day. We made full use of all the sports equipment in the sports shack.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family of four. It was my husband, myself and our two boys ages (6 and11). My husband and I took the bedroom and the boys shared the pullout. It was a little cramped for walking at night but the pullout was pushed in during the day and it was fine. Plus the boys spent all their time at the cottage in the spa, playing paddle ball, exploring the waterfall, laying in the hammock or playing with the animals ( they already miss Fluffy, Hunter, Lucy, Petunia, and Smokey)

It was wonderful to have such a quiet, peaceful location. Also it was so nice and economical to cook most our meals and do laundry after a day of off-roading and zip lines! The Sport Shack is awesome and saves you a lot of $$. There is snorkel gear for 5 people, variety of boogie board sizes, 2 kayaks, 3 surf boards, sand boards, lounge chairs, sun umbrellas, coolers, beach blankets, towels, sand toys, bikes of all sizes/helmets, water shoes(men sizes) and games like paddle ball, croquet, frisbee. With kids this is a huge $$ saver and we actually left them a car booster seat so the next family can save some cash. - rental car agency's charge $7-8 a day. We bought a booster for $15 a Walmart, left it for the next family to use on vacation !

Holly and Rick are super nice. They are there if you need them but they aren't intrusive in any way. Holly has great referrals and even a homemade go to binder with local suggestions! A+ from the teacher! Thank you - Aloha the Borba Bunch

Excellent and beautiful rental

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by our welcome here. Holly and Rick had lit candles in every room with gentle Hawaiian music on the sound system. A huge basket of their home-grown fruit sat on the dining room table. Throughout our visit, we experienced perfect care and consideration for us by our hosts. Their backyard orchard of lime, avocado, orange, grapefruit and papaya trees was ours for the taking and their beach gear shed included everything we needed for ocean adventures. In all, we could not have been happier with our decision to rent here. Mahalo, Holly and Rick!

Slice of Hawaiian Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Holly and Rick have truly created a beautiful getaway on the island of Kauai. You are personally greeted when you arrive and the cottage is filled with warm candlelight, music and fresh tropical flowers. There is no detail that Holly and Rick have missed in providing a welcoming and relaxing home away from home. From a well stocked kitchen to the use of their sports shack, with all of the outdoor equipment you could imagine, you have everything you need for a great vacation. When you stroll the property, you are surrounded by fruit trees and we were lucky enough to have bananas fresh from the tree. The waterfall at the back of the property is not to be missed. It is in a great central location on the island, and our family will definitely be back! Mahalo Holly and Rick!
