The view and accommodations were incredible, and Wade is a great manager. We saw 20 to 30 Sea Turtle each day from our balcony and the location had a great view of the ocean; we spent each morning and evening watching and listening to the waves. The Heirloom Suite only has A/C in the bedroom, so if you are sensitive... More

This property is in a decent location with lots of turtles basking on the rocks in the little river behind the units. You can see the ocean from here and there is okay snorkeling on the other side of the river from the boat ramp (walk or drive to the ramp with no access from our unit into the water).... More

After a little difficulty with the lengthy directions to find this place, we had a nice stay of four nights. (Don't turn right at the traffic circle, as the directions say, but go straight through.) From the balcony overlooking a stream flowing into the ocean, we could observe the sea turtles coming and going and sunning on the rocks. The... More

Loved our stay at Garden Isle Cottages in Koloa, Kauai. The location is amazing, from our balcony there is a lagoon with a waterfall flowing out to the Pacific, full of sea turtles. We spent many hours just watching and counting the turtles, totally awesome. The condo it self is very simple, nothing fancy, has wifi though and was perfect... More

It was a great location for us and within easy walking distance to great restaurants and beaches. The wakeup call of birds and roosters was timed perfectly and it easily became a ritual each morning to have coffee, juice and fresh papaya on the patio at sunrise overlooking Waikomo Stream and the ocean. Each day brought a surprise - monk... More

Loved this place. Great value. Extraordinary view with turtles every day in the cove out the back deck. The manager was easy to contact but didn't really need anything. He did check on us our first day to make sure everything was in order. The only thing missing was usual condiments that we have found in other vrbo stays in... More

This cottage is the perfect location for scuba divers. Seasport Divers is right down the street and all the great dive sights are right off the Poi'pu coast. It's located in a quiet residential area and is a great place for those not wanting the crowded resort style living! The kitchen is well stocked , the bed is comfortable, and... More

Several years ago I lucked into finding this place to stay. I have stayed three times and I have never considered staying anywhere else in Kauai. I have recommended this place to several friends. It is just perfect. I call this place Turtle Central because in three trips (a week each time) I have never not seen a turtle looking... More

We loved this place. It truly is the aloha spirit. Centrally located, on a quiet street overlooking the Pacific with a meandering stream directly below your deck. Each day huge turtles swim up the river from the sea to sleep and sun on the warm lava rock. You are greeted by a wonderful intimate garden and BBQ where ripening bananas... More

My wife and I decided to take a nice vacation before our first born arrives and decided on Kauai. After much research we decided to stay at the Garden Isle Cottages in Poipu. The cottage is in a fabulous location in Poipu. Located close to a round-about with 4 roads leading to different adventures. The location makes it easy to... More
