This place was a great deal! Really spacious and right next to the beach. It's also pretty close to Waimea, which is a great little town. Definitely recommend staying here!

Had a wonderful time at Kendall's place! It's spacious and a perfect getaway without having to settle for that sterile cookie-cutter hotel/resort setting. Communication with Kendall was fast and easy. She was extremely helpful and an all around delight to interact with. The hom…

Great little place to stay. Near by the ocean and in a decent neighborhood. Had everything we needed for our short stay in Kauai. There were chickens and dogs who would sometimes make noise at night or early morning but it wasn’t a big deal.

Our family of 6 stayed at Kendall’s house for a week. Overall, the location was great, as it was close to Waimea Canyon and Koke’e State Park. As for the house, the constant crowing of roosters and barking of the neighborhood dogs woke us up early and kept us up at night. Because…

Response from Kendall:
I am sorry you were not happy at our Island Zen Cottage. The village of Kekaha is gladly not for everyone. It is a local neighborhood not a controlled environment of a resort. Kauai is famous and not so famous for the endless amount of chickens:) Island Zen Cottage is a original plantation cottage from the sugar cane industry and built in 1930. It was customary to have a bathroom/laundry outside off the carport. It made it easy for plantation workers to cleanup before they entered the home. We love this part of history on Kauai and have kept the second bathroom as such. It is also a great feature when you come home sandy from the beach. We do list this bathroom on our listing as being outside. In our many messages with each other I am sorry that you did not mention that you would have liked another bar of soap I would have gladly provided more. I am also sorry that you did not mention as a host I was helpful:) I do hope that you had a memorable time with your family and remember it fondly.

The check-in process and communication were easy and we were grateful for that. The patio was nice to have access to in the evenings. Our friends did use the laundry amenities, so they appreciated that. Access to linens and bath and beach towels was much appreciated. We prioritiz…
