Queen size bed in the spacious bedroom, and for a true island experience the bathroom has an fully private outdoor shower. The multi-purpose front room includes a fully equipped kitchenette (refrigerator, microwave, toaster/oven, blender, hot plate, and barbeque! The multi-purpose room also has satellite television, stereo, and a billiard table. Outside your door, there is a fire pit to enjoy the warm evenings and star filled sky, and a hammock for lazy relaxation.
For an authentic 'live like the locals' experience, stay here.
The house is located across the lawn from the owners Michele and Kerry, who may I add are such a lovely couple, they are there if you need them but give you space and privacy to do your own thing.
The lounge room has no walls, just fly screens, so you feel at one with the beautiful landscaped gardens around you. The lounge room includes cable tv, pool table, table tennis and a kitchenette. It was a little damp one morning but other than that we really enjoyed the openness of the room.
The bedroom is closed off like a normal room just down the deck with an ensuite and outdoor shower.
Michele and Kerry have thought of everything. They provided a fridge full of snacks for our arrival, they have beach chairs and an umbrella (which was very handy as we were traveling with our baby) and a crib for the baby. They even had a Christmas tree, which was a nice touch.
The house is located about a 15 minute walk to the beach through suburban streets, you don't have to take the busy road.
We lived staying here and highly recommend it.
Thank you Nicole! We were sorry we missed the opportunity to say goodbye to you :(
We hope you enjoyed your time on Kauai, and that you were able to fit in that helicopter ride on one of the nice sunny days.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! - Michele & Kerry
Hadn't had the chance to meet Kerry and Michele but the place was very nice, clean and our experience was wonderful overall! I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Kauai!
Kerry and Michele's place wa one of our favourites during our stay. The family integrated us into their life and we felt very welcomed. The place is equipped with eveything you need for a nice stay on Kauai'i. By the way our favourite island. So come and see by yourselves.
Thank you Tom for your kind review! We had a wonderful time getting to know you and your family. It was insightful to have dinner with you, and enjoyed talking about Berlin. Hopefully we will get to come your way someday soon. Come visit us again when we can get your little boy Max out on a surfboard! We send you our fondest regards and warm breezes from Kauai - Kerry & Michele
The cottage and Dillbergs were wonderful. The unit was clean and comfortable. The lawn was impressive and we enjoyed using the fire pit one evening. I would stay here again as a launching point for south island activities and Waimea canyon. It's an easy drive down to the Sheraton or other resort properties and beaches. Cons: the road noise was pretty loud and privacy could be improved.
This property and the hosts couldn't be lovelier. The "cottage" is just as pictured although they don't do the property justice. The sprawing lawn, blossoming trees and fire pit make this spot super homey. We loved the openness of the main room and the privacy of the bedroom/bath/shower. Michele was extremely welcoming and was kind enough to stop by and point out a few highlights of the house and nearby areas. The surrounding scenery is beautiful and it was nice to walk the short distance to Poipu Beach.
Such a wonderful place. Kerry & Michele were the perfect mix of welcoming, involved, and respectful of our privacy. The cottage was gorgeous and in perfect condition. We were welcomed w/ open arms and will certainly return if back in Kauai (which is likely).
We thouroghly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others provided they were looking for a down to earth experience with all the amenities you could want. The grounds were immaculate and beautiful. This cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind. We really loved our downtime there. The outdoor shower is amazing and a great way to start or end the day. As others have noted the roadside noise is noticeable but the AM wake up call from the local roosters was the only really considerable noise and I imagine this can't be avoided on Kauai as they are pretty much everywhere. The Dillberg's were warm and welcoming and provided us with fresh fruit from their property, juice, coffee and snacks upon arrival. They were always available if we needed anything from them and were even so kind as to invite us to their 4th of July party.
All in all it was a fantastic experience with great hosts and definitely contributed to an amazing vacation in Kauai. We look forward to hopefully staying there again someday.
Our family has been on Kauai since 1992. We call the island HOME, and are blessed to have all of our 3 children and 8 grandchildren here with us. Ho'omoana is the name of our family compound. We look forward to meeting people from all over the world, trade travel stories and help make your visit to Kauai the best it can be.
