We enjoyed staying at the Coconut Cottage. The setting and location was perfect for us. We loved being surrounded by all the beautiful flowers and seeing the mountain views every day. Dave was a nice host and answered all of our questions promptly. We are already looking forward to more visits to this beautiful island.
We had a fabulous time at Dave's place and definitely would have booked longer had it been available. The Coconut Cottage was a great place to stay that felt at once indulgent and authentic - we enjoyed having a place to stay that felt like home (but with extra perks like cute goats and pigs, and the big TV with netflix for a mini break from our otherwise unplugged holiday). The space has everything you need and is very creatively and beautifully decorated. Our nocturnal shrimp hunting adventure was a highlight of our trip! Dave and his family were fantastic hosts that we enjoyed getting to know a little.
My husband and I had a great stay at the Coconut Cottage last week. We stayed with Dave for 4 nights. The cottage was cute and comfortable, and had everything we needed. We especially liked the that the kitchen area included all the appliances we could have needed, plenty of counter space, and a full size fridge. As for the stairs up to the sleeping area, yes they move a little, but they felt perfect safe and sturdy. The composting toilet and outdoor bathroom/shower were fine to use. The design of the bathroom and the rustic nature of the your surroundings means you will come across bugs including roaches, but that's to be expected. One of the roaches even managed to show away in our suitcase and came out to say hi when we got home. We liked the farm, especially the friendly goats and pigs, and the farm fresh eggs. We did go to the private beach nearby, but, perhaps because of the high tide this time of year, it was more boulders than beach. Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay for people who aren't into the sterile, manicured resort-type accommodations, and Dave was super helpful with local tips - he told us exactly where to find wild sea turtles feeding and he was right!
Loved staying in the coconut cottage. Very cozy and comfortable place. Perfectly spacious for two guests. Full kitchen equipment, plus a few borrowed seasoning items from Dave. Great place to stay while exploring Kauai. We spent our days hiking, swimming, and snorkeling, and then enjoyed the coziness of the cottage in the evening. The property is quite close to the main road around the island, so traffic is audible. Also, if you are a light sleeper, roosters may keep you awake. I imagine this would be the case just about anywhere on Kauai though since there are wild roaming chickens everywhere.
Dave was an amazing host, and greeted us and introduced us to his warm place. We felt comfortable and safe as we slept soundly through the beautiful sound of rain on the roof. The following morning, we awoke to a teeming property right below the mountains, full of vegetables and with even some animals!
This is probably the coolest place you could stay on the island. It's a sweet environment, doesn't feel cheesy, and is easy to relax in.
The shower & bathroom is easy (its eco-friendly too) and not weird.
Definitely go during a time when you can spend time on the island and enjoy his adventures, they sound like SO MUCH fun!
PS. Make sure to pay attention to his directions, DO NOT GO by the address that airbnb lists --- as it will end up in you being lost and on the phone with dave for a while.
You gotta stay here! We will go back the next time we are in Kauai!
Coconut Cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We found it comfortable and a good base of operations. We knew about the composting toilet in advance, so that was no big deal. We also knew about the ladder-like climb to the upstairs bedroom, so no surprise there, either. Dave was nursing an injured knee, so he couldn't offer any adventures, but we had plenty of adventures on our own. February isn't a good time of year for fresh stuff from the garden, but we did help ourselves to cilantro and mint--and thanks, Dave, for the great eggs. The kitchen was adequate for most meals, but not for anything fancy.
Dave and the Coconut Cottage were fantastic! We would stay there again in a heartbeat and intend to again in the near future. Dave was an amazing host and made you feel right at home immediately upon arrival. The rustic feeling cottage with all the amenities you could hope for was extremely comfortable and a pleasure to return to each day. It was spacious and detached from the other units on property and felt like a real getaway. I've seen a few comments about bugs on other peoples reviews, and all I can say is, get real! Kauai is home to the wettest spot on earth and a tropical haven for many creatures, so bugs are not even worth a mention other than to encourage other guests not leave doors and windows without screens open and not to leave food out. This is the norm for all of the island of Kauai and is even the case in the most sterile and manicured areas like hotels and developed resort areas. I had previously lived on Kauai for 5 years and hiked, explored , and educated others as a guide; and didn't know about many of the places Dave was able to take us to and educate us about. Having him as your guide is worth the stay alone. What's more, we slept more soundly than we ever had on the tempurpedic mattress, enjoyed fresh eggs in the mornings from the chickens and had fresh fruit as well. BOOK THIS PLACE !
