Really liked our stay, the cottage is super comfortable and we loved sitting in the morning and looking out in the nice green yard. Very well stocked and it was great there were even plastic zip bags, foil, cooler, beach chairs etc. It is the little things that count. Also like the thoughtful welcome basket.
It doesn't show well on the pictures but the pool is next to the patio of the main house. We really didn't see the family much though so felt as if it was ours. Would highly recommend!! Easy drive to stores and beach.
The cottage was a lovely, clean, pleasant place. Just as we hoped, well equipped, home away from home. It was located in a quiet residential area but easy to get to main road. We really enjoyed the cottage and hospitality of Renee and her family. Definitely we would like to stay there again in future visit.
We've just arrived back home and are still remembering the great time we had in Kauai. I can absolutely recommend the Kester's Kauai Cottage. It's a really romantic place and everything that one could need is available. The cottage is surrounded by a lush garden and there's also a refreshing swimming pool. All is well maintained and very clean. Even golf-clubs are there for use! My husband got about that really excited and went several times to a local golf course near by. The location is also central for day trips or sport activities like golf, tennis or swimming in the ocean.
Kester's Kauai Cottage is a lovely, well-maintained space nestled in a lush, garden oasis, in a quiet Kauai neighborhood. The cottage is very well stocked with all the necessary equipment required of jaunts to any of the numerous beaches in Kauai. Renee and her family are gracious hosts, providing not simply hotel-style amenities (high thread count sheets, high quality bathroom and beach towels), but also sharing advice, suggestions for activities and beaches to enhance your exploration of Kauai. The cottage, which is incredibly peaceful and centrally located, serves as a wonderful alternative to the option of a hotel room. Our party of four appreciated having a landing spot with a fully-equipped kitchen and the experience of living outside the tourist radar.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful cottage.
Renee was a great host, having prepared everything exceptionally nice and with a rich welcome basket for us.
The cottage itself is located in a lovely and quiet area, yet easy and fast to get to points of interest. The interior is great, everything that one could need is available - from pots and cutlery in the kitchen, to sufficient towels in the bath, snorkeling stuff, beach chairs and even golf-clubs. All perfect, clean, new... And the lush garden and nice pool are superb if you just want to sit and relax "at home".
Renee and her family were wonderful and forthcoming. And Renee took time to share with us ideas of what to do and provided perfect suggestions.
Altogether: Kauai is a wonderful island which you really get to love when you are hosted in such a nice place like Renee's cottage and by such a sweet family.
Kester's Kauai Cottage was amazing! It is really hard to tell from the website how private the cottage is going to be, especially since it is near the main house, but I can tell you that we were pleasantly surprised... it honestly felt like our own house!
Renee was super friendly and kept the cottage SO clean. It was like having an amazing next door neighbor that you could ask for help if you ever needed it!
And the location!!! The location is really hard to beat, being about 15 minutes away from all beaches on the South Shore, but up in the hills so that at night it is quiet, away from all of the tourists.
Seriously, we plan on coming back to Kauai as soon as we can, and when we do, we hope to stay at this Cottage again!
I have known Renee for over 15 years. I've shared many fun times with Renee in her home We've traveled together and I can say without a doubt that she knows what travelers need and appreciate. Her adorable rental is a perfect space to use as a base for your Kauai vacation. It's a great location, with easy access to some of the best beaches and hiking on the island. You will need a car of course - as I'm sure you've figured out already! She and her gorgeous family are super fun, sweet, helpful and are always willing to lend a hand, or give you privacy. I can't hesitate to highly recommend her rental and I look forward to my next visit to Renee's!
