We stayed in cottage 4 for 4 nights in Feb. The grounds, the cottage itself and the location on the beach were TOP NOTCH! If you are considering a place tucked away from the world on the north shore, this is the place. Stop searching and book it now! Couple tips to make your stay the best possible: plan ahead! The grocery store is a 20 minute (albeit beautiful) drive to Hanalei... we got in much later than expected and went the following morning, and it was a bit of a hike. Plus if you forget anything you have to go all the way back there for it, so make your list and check it twice! The place has salt and pepper and that is it. It did have a very cozy bed, great bedding, linens, and BEAUTIFUL spa bath!!! Its all the luxury of home in a small scale. I would say in regard to which cottage, they are all awesome! we had a great ocean view and heard the roar of the waves every night. Only take away was it was not totally easy to get in touch with the rental agent after booking, so be sure you are totally sure of your dates before you sign off. I liked the fact that you just show up and punch in your code, no check in- it makes you feel like you own the place. The beach walks, the sunrises, the digs, and fact that you are so secluded made it just what we wanted and we would reccommend it to anyone!
