This sweet, basic little cottage Li'i is away from it all down the end of a little narrow taro patch road:) Listen to the birds, the stream and watch the sunrise from the lanai. I travelled solo and felt very safe here. Lance greeted me and made sure that I knew where everything was and told me to ask if... More

I should preface this review by saying we came here after an absolutely idyllic cottage situation on the big island. So even though I'm trying to be impartial, there is probably some comparing to perfection going on, instead of comparing it to an average hotel situation. The place is lovely, peaceful except for the roosters and when Lance is out... More

Stay away, there are spiders, Lizards, Frogs and all sorts of things you and your wife/girlfriend don't want to encounter!! :) Ok now seriously, this place is awesome. In fact it was almost too awesome to put into words but i'm gonna try. First of all you are basically back in the jungle on this property. It's about a 2... More

Serene, relaxing, beautiful cottage on private property in the middle of a nature preserve that has a small stream, lovely trees and plants and birds all around. The inside is clean and well kept and the kitchen is nicely supplied. But the best part was the shower in the open air bathroom - imagine standing in a refreshing (and private)... More

My husband & I stayed in the Hale Nui unit for 5 nights. The room & its amenities were immaculate and the surrounds stunning. We had such a relaxing stay, I loved that the room was ours for our time there & that nobody else entered the room within that time. So there is no service & we brought our... More

I can only say we wished we'd stayed more than 4 nights at Taro Patch Hale. This property, with its 2 private cottages, is a taste of the locals Kauai on the north shore. Almost 2 miles up the picturesque Hanalei Valley, off a dirt road with no sign and a tad challenging to find, you will discover a lovely... More

Taro Patch Hale is one of our favorite places we've ever stayed. The location is incredibly gorgeous and very peaceful -- perfect for us. We wanted to stay somewhere unique and this was it -- beside a small river, a few miles off the main road at the back of a valley -- we couldn't have asked for a nicer... More

We stayed here for ten days in July, 2010 and Taro Patch was absolutely everything we could have hoped for. From the first drive in we were captivated by the mountains and river and lush rainforest, taro patches to the right and river meandering to left. Our first sunset brought total privacy and relaxation - a beach day followed by... More

The property is very beautiful, set down in the Hanalei Valley. We saved this for the last leg of our honeymoon. We were so excited to be staying far away from the touristy areas of the island. When we checked in we realized that the unit was much smaller than described, I still maintain that they had us in the... More

We stayed at Taro Patch Hale in the smaller Nui cottage for seven days. We were delighted from the first turn after the wooden bridge as we wound around the long twisty road to Taro Patch. It felt like we were retreating deeper and deeper into wilderness. The sensation of the cottage was the same: sitting on the back porch,... More
