Salt Pond : Named for its traditional Hawaiian salt collecting ponds, this beach is protected by an outside reef with potential good winter snorkeling, fishing and swimming
Kokee State Park: Covered in forest, wild flowers and hiking trails making it an excellent spot to see native plants and colorful endemic Hawaiian forest birds like the apapane, iwi and moa. The park also offers roughly 45 miles of the state's finest hiking trails.

Momi and Elwood were wonderful hosts. They extended every hospitality to us!
We had a great stay with Momi. The room was very spacious, we had breakfast ready on the table every morning and a full kitchen at our disposal. It was wonderful to be woken up by tropical birds every morning! Would definetly stay again.
A wonderful place to explore Koke'e beautiful trails. We stayed for 5 nights. The room is super big and very peaceful if you forget the chickens. Elwood is probably one of the kindest man on earth. What a wonderful human being with the sweetest smile ever!! Totally loved his morning papayas. Had such a wonderful time. Will definitely be back. Mahalo!!
The room was very spacious and clean. Elwood gave us recommendations of places to snorkle and hike and we had a wonderful time! Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruits and tea. I'm sure on our next Kauai trip we will be coming back to stay again.
Menehune B&B was a great stay. The room was plenty spacious. A bed and a nice couch and plenty of room for us to organize our things. More than the room, Elwood and Momi were great hosts. Elwood went out of his way to be helpful. He gave us great tips on where to go on the south island. He let us use his snorkeling gear for Po'ipu. He gave us a new CD he had created with his band which became our island soundtrack! He has a great voice. Momi and Elwood set us up completely, helped us with our laundry, gave us great snacks, were wonderful hosts. The roosters got me up a little early, but that seems to be part and parcel of staying on Kauai with all the feral poultry released from the 1992 Hurricane. Otherwise, nothing but Aloha and the Hawaiian way.
Elwood and Momi were great hosts although I barely got a chance to talk to them because we were out of the house most of the time. We had everything we needed and the space was a great launching point for exploring Polihale Beach, Waimea Canyon, and Poipu.
I had a fantastic stay at the cabin with Candis and Elwood. They were both very friendly and helpful and I really liked that the cabin was a bit tucked away from the hustle and bustle.
I stayed 5 nights and had an awesome room! Really big with TV and aircon (which I didn't need). The bed was great, slept really well. Even the roosters in the morning couldn't keep me from sleeping (earplugs!!) ;)
Thanks you guys, will definitely recommend your lovely home. Cheers for having me!
