Pros: Location, kitchen, large well lit bathroom with old fashioned easy to adjust facets, exc choice of tv stations. Very comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Nice old fashioned seaside cottage. Great base for island activities such as boat tour of Na Pali coast and visiting Waimea Canyon.
Cons: Only bedroom was air conditioned, although remainder of cottage very well ventilated still was too hot. No salt or pepper supplied.

Pros: My wife and I love this place! We happened upon this a few years ago for one night to extend our stay and came back for a week. If you want a low-key, relaxed stay- you can find it here. We love having room to spread out and to prepare food when we need to. The grounds are spectacular, right on the beach, a walk into town for anything- love it.
Cons: There are some things that could use a little sprucing up- some corroded fixtures, wood floors that could use refinishing, a little rust on the roof. But the place is clean, and housekeeping comes every few days. I didn't mind these things, it is part of the charm of a cottage that is aged.

Pros: Great place for a family, great "Hawaiian Experience". Older original small houses built originally for Hawaiian Plantation workers. Bar-be-cues available. Close to Waimea canyon. We had 2 screened porches. Lots of privacy.
Cons: Too many roosters, calling at 3 A.M. Need an air conditioner for both bedrooms, Could use an upgrade to bathroom tub/shower, bathroom could use more cleaning. Shouldn't interrupt guests to spray for roaches

Pros: The front lady was very friendly and kind enough to let us in before the check-in time. The cottages are very well kept and comfortable. We stayed at a garden view cottage, but we could still enjoy the comforting sounds from the ocean, which is just a few steps away. Free water bottles in a fridge was a bonus. It was a perfect place to getaway and think of the days long past. We'd definitely come back.
Cons: We enjoyed the swimming pool but it needed some improvement of water quality. You might want to bring slippers for your cottage if you're sensitive.

Pros: Charming cottages, in the most peaceful imaginable setting. It's true that the ocean has brown water and sand from the river, but I saw locals swimming in it, and I enjoyed wading up to my knees.
Cons: I wish the "resort fee" were just part of the cited price for the room. Charging a fee for things that should be taken for granted (cleaning, water, video, internet) makes the management look petty and greed-driven. I know these things cost money but it just looks bad to charge extra for stuff that is automatic at most hotels.
