Our family of 4 stayed in the beautiful Meli Meli cottage August 2012. I can't say enough nice things about Jeff and Ross (the owners) - they created this little oasis on Kauai, responded promptly to all requests, played "tour guide" to my many questions about the island and really treated us like family, friends and royal guests.
The cottage itself was wonderful - clean, comfortable, relaxing and well stocked with things we needed. We navigated the island from one end to the other from Meli Meli and found we were never too far from any point, and were always happy to return "home." Our daughters played around the cottage, inventing forts and special island adventures while I lounged outside. The beach is just a short walk away as is a little grocery in the Coconut Marketplace (which I wished I'd found sooner.)
Some of our favorite things about Kauai and Meli Meli: the geckos, the beach (take a right at the end of the Beach Access path) and all the beaches (Glass Beach, Tunnels Beach, Kealia), Tiki Tacos, Passion Cafe, Hee Fat in Kapa'a, the Oasis Bar/Restaurant, Napali Coast boat tour, Smith Family Luaua, to name just a few. If and when we come back, we'll most surely stay at Meli Meli and I'd love to explore the Coco Palms (was super curious about it while we were there but didn't look in to it, unfortunately, until we got home), find more waterfalls, see the whales, and repeat all our favorites again.
Thanks to Jeff and Ross for everything!
