              Sweetest little Island Cottage in a great setting

              We loved this place! Beautifully decorated and nestled in an upcountry neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of town but yet still close enough for all our activities. We were so pleasantly surprised to have a gorgeously decorated Christmas tree to welcome us. The cottage had everything we could possibly need. Since we had just come from 4 days of playing and hiking in Waimea, we needed to be able to wash a few things and having a laundry to use was perfect. The cottage is cozy and comfortable and beautifully decorated. We loved the wild chickens that roam the island and property. I'm a crazy chicken lady and they made me feel right at home. We also had everything we could possibly need for our daily excursions in the way of a cooler, extra beach towels, chairs, an umbrella and beach mats....not to mention snorkeling gear. We arrived to find two yummy little loaves of gingerbread waiting for us! Such a sweet treat and welcoming gesture. Thank you, Deani. Sorry we didn't get to meet you in person but we'd love to come back for another visit soon! We were very busy everyday exploring and having the time of our lives. Kauai is now my favorite island destination. The diversity of the island with it's little micro climates makes it a great destination for those that like to get off the beaten path. One of my favorite experiences was walking silently and barefoot in the Kauai Hindu Monastery. So peaceful and such a beautiful setting. Mahalo and Happy New Year!
