What Past Guests Are Saying
Cozy, peaceful hideaway
We stayed at Dawns in late May and really liked the studio. My husband had a great time watching all the wildlife passing through and living around the cottage. Dawn and her son are very nice and she gives you a wealth of information about the island. Parking was easy and free, the cottage was very clean.
There are not enough good things I can say about this wonderful place and the owner, Dawn. The sweet and thoughtful little things she does to make your stay pleasant and comfortable really add to an overall delightful experience. There really is no place better if you want to get away from the hotel and overcrowded resort thing. Nestled in a lush, tropical and secluded setting, it was just perfect for my stay for my sister's wedding. Do not hesitate to book- you will not find any place better than this little gem!
Response from Dawn - 04/02/2013
Thank you so much for the great review Katie.... I don't think I'll ever forget you and your sister rushing around and her beautiful wedding gown. :)
An amazing experience!
My husband surprised me with a trip to Hawaii! And he couldn't have picked a better place :)
Dawn was an awesome hostess, very warm and helpful. She'd even made her personal guidebook, advising us on everything, from places to eat, the best beaches and even what to avoid! She even has beach towels, umbrella, chairs and even snorkeling gear!
The house itself is gorgeous!!! It is so secluded from the world, with ferns and trees enclosing you in your own cocoon. This is especially useful when you want to exploit the brilliant jacuzzi! The house was well maintained and beautifully done. We loved every minute spent indoors, which is saying a lot since this was the beautiful Kauai we are talking about!
My only peev would be the small sized shower cubicle. But the rest of the amenities and the charm and beauty of the house more than make up for it!
One tip would be to arm yourself with some really good mosquito repellent, as the dense vegetation leads to inevitable encounters with the many legged!
There are great food options, a short drive away, with many different cuisines and which fit all kinds of budgets. Kauai is a beautiful island, lush green and laid back, yet offering fantastic activities for the more adventurous ones. Our top pick was the hand-gliding tour by Kauai aerosports - a must-do experience of a lifetime.
Our stay at Kauai was made all the more memorable because of Dawn's Studio. It was affordable while not compromising on anything! A private jacuzzi, a deck and a beautiful house!
And Dawn, your warmth made it more special :)
Thank you! Look forward to seeing you again someday!
My husband and I spent a relaxing 2 weeks at Dawn's studio. It is set in a lush garden with a private deck area and jacuzzi. The interior of the studio is warm and comfortable. We enjoyed making breakfast and relaxing in the morning before heading out for our daysof hiking and beaching. Many days we also packed a lunch. The kitchen was well equipped to cook dinner too. Several nights we used the gas grill and jacuzzi .Dawn was very welcoming but not intrusive. Lihue is centrally located and there are many restaurants less than a mile away. We liked Duke's alot. A car is a must and in 2 weeks we explored from the North Coast to Waimea Canyon. We recommend this place without any reservations.
Homey, hospitable stay
Kauai Dawn makes you feel right at home in this cozy studio apartment. She is readily available to answer any questions or give advice on what to do/where to go on the island throughout your stay. The cottage is located centrally, so nothing is a very far drive - and the grill and jacuzzi are nice to have for a relaxing day or night in. Be aware that you will hear roosters crowing outside of your window throughout the night as they are all over Kauai - so if you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs!

We stayed for almost 2 weeks in Dawn's Cottage and it was absolutely wonderful. It was in a great location for travelling North or South. Dawn was very helpful with her knowledge about the island, and suggested all the right things to do (but also didn't push any one activity). The access to her kayak and other beach accessories were great for all of our day trips. We looked forward to coming back to the cottage after a full and fun day in the sun to grill, sit in the Jacuzzi, or have some wine on the deck. We would recommend her cottage to any of our friends and family members. It was perfectly priced for what we had, and having Dawn there for suggestions was an added bonus. She truly is a genuine person and can tell she wants all her guests to have a great holiday. Our entire trip was amazing and we would go back and stay in the same place in a heartbeat.

Best Vacation we ever had!
We had a truly wonderful experience at Dawn's cottage. It was everything we expected and more. Dawn was extremely helpful and shared her knowledge of the island and helped us plan our time there. We especially enjoyed picking fresh mangoes and avocados right there in the yard. We rented a jeep so we could explore the island, and found the location of the cottage excellent for just about any location we wanted to visit. We enjoyed having our private hot tub that we used daily, and we cooked fresh fish on the grill several nights, which we enjoyed with fresh vegetables from the farmer's market. Mahalo, Dawn, for everything. This was the best vacation we have ever had.

The location is perfect, in the middle of the island in a charming neighborhood right by the beach and some nice restaurants. The Jacuzzi is so nice to come home to and Dawn is the nicest.
Cozy, tropical, gracious hostess
This place is fun! Who would've thought a Jacuzzi in Hawaii would be so perfect, but after our days of hiking and kayaking, we loved coming back to it--and renting Dawn's kayak was such an adventure! A lovely little tropical yard to enjoy.
Cedar City, UT
We had a great time in Kauai and the cottage was the perfect home base for all our adventures. The place was very clean and the jacuzzi was a great perk. Being able to cook for ourselves saved a lot of money. We also ended up eating losts of fresh fruit from Dawn's yard and some we gathered on our adventures. We highly recomend the cottage for its price, location and amenities. Mahalo!
