“Outstanding Stay”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent one week at the Plantation Cottage and could not have been more thrilled with rental.

Location:

The cottage is located on Weke Road but is set back some 30 or so meters from the road and is tucked in behind but certainly not too close to a large residence. We found the cottage to be tranquil and very quiet even with all the windows wide open. It is very private. You might hear a snippet of conversation now and again from an adjacent residence but this was never an annoyance. The only infrequent road noise you hear is from a driveway to the east. The cottage is set on an expansive property with a variety of trees and wonderful views. Located on Weke Road, you have quick walking access to both the beach pavillion to the west and to the pier to the east. The Kuhio Highway, where all of the shops, restaurants, grocery stores and Hanalei Liquor are located is a mere ten minute walk. Driving a car while in Hanalei is unnecessary and this we loved. Although Napali Properties, who manage this property, suggest in their info package in the cottage to guard against theft, we never once felt it necessary to hide belongings in the cottage or close windows at night.

The Cottage:

Where to start? First, this is a gem of a cottage for two people. The kitchen, dining and living areas are spacious and uncrowded. There is a new and very comfortable couch and armchair with a footstool as well. Windows to the west and south and and windows and a huge set of sliding doors facing north ensure lots of light and fantastic breezes. The bedroom, with windows to the north and east as well, is well lit and reasonably breezy as well. The bed (king size) is oh so comfortable. The bathroom is huge with a wonderfully large shower and lots of space to spread out. All of the windows have excellent wood blinds that effectively keep the sun out when needed. The lanai is the place to hang out in this cottage. It faces east and can get great breezes provided the south facing exterior curtain is rolled up. The exterior double bed is very comfortable and perfect for naps. Two lounge chairs are out there as well. Ceiling fans in both the living room and bedroom help cool the cottage.

Amenities:

The cottage is very well equipped with most everything you will need. Beach chairs, umbrella (broken however, and this was reported to Napali Properties), coolers, washer, dryer, clotheslines, charcoal BBQ, outdoor shower, stereo system, TV (barely on while we were there), fast wireless and of course a fully equipped kitchen. Yes. the stove is old but this didn’t concern us at all. The only shortcomings we noticed was the lack of a desk light and the lack of an outdoor table for meals or drinks.

We’d unconditionally recommend this rental for anyone looking for quiet, privacy and an alternative to a condo or resort.

Hope this helps.
