The Garden Cottage was not listed on the web site when we were looking for accommodation in Poipu, however after an enquiry into what was available for the dates we were travelling they very helpfully offered this cottage for our use. The garden cottage is unfortunately not an ocean front one, but is in a nice quiet location and provided a comfortable and roomy base for our travels in Kauai.
This was the first travel experience I've had where I've not encountered any property owner/manager in person which I found to be a quite odd experience - you pick up keys and drop them off in a lock box - no personal contact. Efficient and allows you a lot of privacy, but still odd. Arranging the rental was very straight forward and I found the people at Coastline cottages to be professional and helpful.
We didn't really take advantage of the facilities available for use with the cottage; but the pool did look nice. I imagine that the cottage could get quite warm in the heat of summer - ceiling fans did a lot to cool the place down. The kitchen was well equipped and Wifi was reliable. It was only the two of us but it would be easy to fit a family with 2 kids - and it has the advantage of the main bedroom being upstairs and allowing a small parent's retreat.
Overall a great experience.
