My wife and I had a wonderful time here. The apartment is just beautiful! We especially loved the privacy of a separate unit. It is located on the south side of the island near Poipu beach which worked out well as we wanted to visit all the different sides of the island. We loved the included beach items that we were able to borrow like beach mats, beach umbrella, and chairs. I would definitely stay here again!

Cottage was clean, quiet and centrally located to exploring the south/ west side of the island. Situated on the property with the family's main residence but seemed private, with large yard, horse pasture and view of the ocean from the lanai. Apartment looks like it was recently built and has amenities that are nice for a longer stay- washer/ dryer, kitchen with al necessary items, and a library of guide books so don't worry about bringing your own. In her house manual Shari had good recommendations for beaches/ restaurants/ entertainment. Could have stayed here for weeks, but back to reality.
I strongly and very highly recommend Shari's Banana Tree Cottage. It's a stunning little property and has many plus points: quiet, comfortable furniture throughout, clean, spacious and gently-breezy, beautiful scenery and long/wide views, good location (I walked daily to and from the Hyatt for a conference I was attending in just under 15 mins; it's a similar walking distance to the beach; if you have a car then everything in Poipu is very close by), well stocked up with useful things in the kitchen and shower room, and a welcoming selection of fruit/bread/flowers upon arrival. It's a beautiful and peaceful environment. Although I was staying on my own for a conference, I'd imagine this would be perfect for a honeymoon or romantic break. If you can secure a booking here, I'd say definitely go for it - you will not be disappointed!!!

This is a great location. It's close (but not too close) to snorkeling & beaches in Poipu, as well as shopping in Old Koloa Town.
The space is clean and bright, with a nice kitchen, a comfy daybed/couch, and a clutch in-unit washer-dryer. If you open the windows, you get an awesome breeze through the entire space -- super refreshing!
The horses right by the property are very cute, as well.
Shari is a wonderful host -- friendly, responsive, and totally gracious.
What an amazing place! 12 minute walk from the beach, Shari is exceptionally nice, place is brand new, clean, comfortable and private. Full kitchen, washer and dryer, what else could you ask for! Highly recommended, would stay there again in a minute.
Also, very helpful that Shari provides a lot of basic things you would need when renting a cottage, such as basic cooking supplies (olive oil, salt & pepper, basic spices, etc) as well as shampoo, conditioner, body wash and laundry detergent.
We had a great time @Banana Tree Cottage. The house was quiet, clean and you had the feeling of being home. The perfect place for a Honeymoon, spending time together and relax from work.
Shari was very kind, superfriendly and flexible. The house is 5 mínutes away from the beach, we would highly recommend it.
We had a excellent stay at Shari's Banana Tree Cottage. It is very well-outfitted with a full kitchen, grill, tv, and more. It was a very quiet and relaxing place to stay while still being a quick (5 minute) drive to the beach or to Koloa town. Overall, we had a wonderful time in Kauai and Shari's hospitality and quality home had a lot to do with it.
Absolutely loved the Banana Cottage. It was well decorated, breezy, and on a beautiful property where you truly felt like you were both in a rural area and also close to the ocean and town. Also Shari and her family was incredibly kind and showed us the Kauai spirit we came to love while there.
