“Cozy home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

My husband and I are from the big island and went to Kauai specifically to hike the Napali coast. Our first night at the green acres cottage was on Christmas Day-great customer service, Tony the owner was so nice despite us arriving around 8pm he sat with us and told us stories about people he knew who had hiked the trail. We loved that the rooms had movies, new and old. Although the fruits went in season, the property was beautiful to walk around. The also had macadamia nuts and a cracker on the property. Tony warned us about leaving our surfboard in the rental car at the entrance to the hike, so he offered to let us leave our board in his storage room. I really enjoy supporting small businesses and felt that the cottage was worth the money so we ended up staying another night there at the end of our trip. HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING HERE! This is the real Hawaiian experience :)

We stayed for 3-1/2 weeks in the Gazebo Cottage. It is beautifully decorated, very clean, and has a terrific lanai. We enjoyed the lanai for every breakfast, watching the sun come up over the orchard, listening to the birds, watching the huge bee on the hibiscus, and in general loving being outside. Although it only has a kitchenette, it is well-supplied, and includes a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, hot plate, crock pots, and lots of dishes, pots, and containers.

The best part about Green Acres, however, is the hosts. Tony and Diane are friendly, helpful, and generous. We received multiple gifts of banana bread, cookies, carrot cake, and fruit. Imagine our surprise when we came back from two nights on the other side of the island to find a carrot cake in the fridge, or from a day at the beach to find a coffee cake on the table! We were also welcome to all the fruit we could pick and all the macademia nuts we could crack and eat. When Tony saw us coming and going, he would always ask how our day was or where we were going, and if we needed anything. They also have a supply of coolers and beach mats, flippers, etc.

I will recommend Green Acres to all my friends and relatives.

Room Tip: The Gazebo Cottage has a very nice lanai.

We stayed at Green Acres for 3 nights on our 2 week stay.
We were staying on the west side but thought we would take a side trip up North for few days so we could explor the area. Green Acres was a very resonable priced property in good location to get out and see the sites. Although a little small (everything in one room) was perfect for short visits. There was a kichenette no stove and only bar fridge but they do have a large electic bbq and microwave, toaster oven and even a one burner hot plate. This property is clean with so many lovely details. Charming is a word that comes to mind. Tony and Diane oviously work hard to keep the house and grounds in immaculate condition

We stayed in one of Tony's cottages for three nights while staying in Kauai. It was the perfect spot to land for a few days. It's a quaint, clean space that has everything you need. The space is on a citrus farm and you are free to wander the land. The complimentary breakfast was especially nice. The cottages are right near Common Ground-- an incredibly good farm-fresh restaurant. The jacuzzi wasn't working when we were there but the spot is so perfect we didn't even seem to mind. The cost is half that of a traditional hotel and has much more personality. Tony and family are very genuine and generous. We had a great stay.

Room Tip: Two are smaller and one is a little larger. Three rooms in total.

I stayed at the Green Acres Cottages for 7 nights May 24-31, 2013 and I must say the service, location, and property is excellent. It is in close promity to Kapaa (south on Kuhio Hwy) and to the north coast of Kauai (Hanalei, Princeville, Haena Beach Park, Kee Beach, etc..). It is also a very peaceful and quiet location. The only thing you will hear on the property is the chickens wake up call in the morning. (Chickens are everywhere on Kauai).

It feels like home and is clean. I traveled a long way from Texas for my first ever trip to a Hawaiian island (Kauai) and I'm glad I picked GAC for lodging. The owners Tony and Tran are very friendly. I did enjoy cracking my own macadamia nuts on the back porch. That was a treat after the long fun day at the beach and hiking trail.

So if you want a great excellent lodging experience on Kauai then Green Acres Cottages is the place. Great for solo travelers.

Thank u Tony and Tran! See u next time.

We stayed in the Green Acres Cottages a total of 7 nights and we do not regret it at all. It has three cottages and they have a good price-to-quality ratio (it is not expensive at all considering the other alternatives in the island).

It does not have the luxuries of a resort (large swimming pool, perfect rooms) but it has other things that make it more interesting as a lodge: it feels more like being at home compared to a hotel (which we appreciate when we travel), it has a huge yard full of fruit trees (citrics, mangoes, ...) where the kids can run freely (and you can pick the fruits if you want), it has a jacuzzi (we did not use it though) and the owners (Diane and Tony) take good care of the customers (the carrot cake that Diane prepared for us was delicious!).

We stayed in the nautic room, which is very convenient for a family of 4 members. This room has a queen bed and two twin beds. Also it features a refrigerator and cooking gear that is useful if you plan to cook your meals (which we did extensively).

If you like the hikes and beaches of the north and east shores of Kauai'i, this is definitively a good option for lodging.

Room Tip: If you are a party of four, for instance a family with two kids, consider asking for the Nautic room...

As a budget traveller it is not easy to find a good acoommodation in Kaua'i (except on campsites), so we've been happy to find the Green Acres Cottages recommendation in the Lonely Planet Guidebook. And what we found when we got there was a lot over our expectations! The hospitality of Tony and Diane, the cozy and clean room (Nautical Dreams,which is big enough for 4 guests), the kitchenette with table, the fruits and cakes, the mac nuts, the dvds in our room and much more made us feel at home. We've been travelling for 4 month and this was one of the best places we stayed in! Go for it!
