We stayed at The Guesthouse at River Estate over Thanksgiving week 2012. It has everything you could possibly need, is in the middle of Kauai's amazing north shore, yet is tucked up in the jungle alongside the river making for a perfectly private, secluded retreat. Listening to the river while drifting to sleep after a day spent hiking/surfing/snorkeling at the nearby trails/breaks/reefs was the perfect way to end the day and recharge for the next one. The fully appointed kitchen made eating in easy. The only downside to enjoying breakfast on the lanai every morning was we often lost track of time and got a late start on our day. The house is also equipped with boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkeling gear, and a cooler making gearing up for beach days a breeze. All in all, can't recommend the Guesthouse at River Estate enough.
