The Island Zen Cottage was quaint and well suited to our needs, there was nothing lacking for a home feel. It has all you need to prepare your own meals and enjoy a lovely meal inside or out on the lanai. The laundry facility was greatly appreciated and convenient. The cottage was cool and comfortable.
It was within walking distance to the beach to take in the morning sunrise or afternoon beach strolls. We enjoyed the feeling of being in a small community away from the larger populations of travelers. The island is quite small so you are never far from anywhere you want to go.
We enjoyed taking in the Saturday market in Kekaha to stock up on some produce for the week.
We were more than happy with our 3 week stay, it just goes by too fast is all. We would go back in an instant.
