Offering exceptional accommodations, adventures, cuisine and culture, vacationing on Kauai is a dream come true. SCHEDULED ROAD CLOSURES DUE TO HANALEI LANDSLIDE: “An enormous mudslide occurred near the site of an earlier 2018 landslide. This landslide resulted in tens of thousands of cubic yards of mud slid down onto the highway, effectively cutting off regular access for communities of Hanalei, Wainiha, and Haena from the rest of the island. The mudslide and subsequent road closure took place on the North Shore of Kauai near mile marker 1, approaching the Hanalei Bridge in an area called “Hanalei Hill.” You know this area as the location where you wind down the hill following Princeville shopping center towards Hanalei.” - Please plan in advance accordingly.

Yes, stay here!

by mark rasmussen
Very nice, simple house in a great location. Walkable to town and the beach. Outdoor shower a bonus. I would definitely stay here again.

Overall great stay

by April Benoit
The cottage was a little dated, but had everything we needed and was clean. Everything worked perfectly. I appreciate that it was fully stocked, even with laundry detergent. We enjoyed the outdoor shower. Checkout was at 10am, which we didn't realize because typically, check out is at 11am. Also, seeing as how the road closures in and out of Hanalei are in effect, it would have been helpful if the management company would have allowed and announced a late check out option. We couldn't leave Hanalei until the road opened at 1pm. So what do we do with a car full of luggage and groceries we are trying to transport to our next rental in the South Shore? It wouldn't have been an issue if there were no road closures.

Great location and wonderful cottage

by Mary Rydell
This was our second stay at the Dolphin cottages. Great location to walk to town. Loved the fresh fish and sushi at the Dolphin restaurant. Rustic but very clean. Only real issue was the poor WIFI but that could be because of the remote location. And the shower drain was very slow but that’s not a deal breaker. Be sure and make reservations to see Haena beach park and Ke’e beach. Much much improved experience there. We also booked the chocolate tour at the Princeville botanical garden that was fabulous. Do the zip and dip at Princeville ranch too.
Thank you for choosing Kaua'i Exclusive as your host during your time here on the island! I will inform my property manager about the slow drain and WiFi so he can take a look. We hope to host you again in the future! Mahalo Nui, The Kaua'i Exclusive Management Team

Dolphin II Lovely!

by Robert ferguson
Great place to while a way a vacation. Great house which was really clean and everything we could need to cook and just exist. Right on the Hanalei river so we would see the outriggers busting up and down it each day. Beast fish market on the island 60 steps (I counted them!) away from the house plus an excellent restaurant as well nearby. Short walk to downtown Hanalei and not much longer to the Hanalei Bay, a beautiful place to boogie board or just layout. Booking wass easy and managed well and the manager is right next door if there's any problems. There are three other houses on this property but they are nicely enough spaced that there is little problem with other folks. We are already booking this for next year. The Dolphin wins! Taa Daa!!!

Perfect stay in Hanalei!

by Kate Bowman
Our stay at Dolphin Cottage #2 was amazing! The cottage was cool and comfortable and had everything we needed. We loved being on the river. Several evenings we sat out back, grilled up some dinner and watched folks kayak by. Dolphin Cottage #2 was walking distance to everything in Hanalei, but also tucked away off the street so you felt like you were in your own private oasis. We can't wait to return to magical Hanalei and stay at Dolphin Cottage #2.

Dolphin Cottage 2

by Pam Parker
We had a fabulous time in this rental! It was a peaceful location within easy walking distance to Hanalei and Hanalei Beach. It was super clean and comfortable - every amenity we needed was in the cottage already. When we had trouble with the TV, they sent someone over the next morning to fix it. This is a very well maintained and special property. I highly recommend it!!

Riverside tranquility

by chester arnold
The Dolphin Cottages are perfect in every way...from sitting outside by the river and watching the kayakers paddle by to sleeping on the porch with the sea breeze wafting through, it is paradise here - private, quiet and very restorative.

Great Time at the Dolphin Cottage

by Karl Thomas
We had a great stay at the Dolphin Cottage. Easy check-in, and found the house clean and a great location for our family. Centrally located to all the shops, food, and Hanalei bay. We were able to put our paddle boards in the river and go into the bay almost everyday. We had a great time and have already told family about the place. Thanks, Karl

Hanalei Gem!

by Corey Peterson
My wife and I returned to Kauai for our 3rd trip in January 2018 and we stayed at the Dolphin Cottage #2 for a week. I cannot say enough positive things about this cottage. Good space, airy, sort of rustic with the wooden window slats but to me that adds to the charm of the cottage. It is so peaceful having coffee out front in the morning and looking at the mountains or sitting by the river in the afternoon and watching the paddlers go by. We loved every moment here and I know we will be back in the future.

Perfect Spot!!!

by Meagan Watts
My mother and I came to Kauai for some relaxing quality time and that is exactly what we got at the Dolphin Cottage. It was perfect. Beautiful location centrally located within walking distance to all Hanalei has to offer. The beach was a super short drive but definitely within walking distance as well, as long as you didn't have too much loot or heavy ice chests. The cottage had everything we needed at our disposal. It was clean and I must say had the most comfortable sheets I've ever slept in. The bed overlooking the river was spectacular, rain or moon shine. The only very small detail that was just shy of a 10 rating was the lack of water pressure in the shower and the noise from the restaurant in the somewhat early morning (which can't be helped and we weren't looking to sleep the day away anyway). We are definitely planning on bringing the whole family back as soon as we can!! Super great place to stay!!!

Lovely location

by Jennifer Pelizar
Such a relaxed holiday in Hanalei. The location is excellent for paddlers. I was able to safely leave my paddleboard on the grassy area near the river for the week. The only suggestion I would make is that proper sun blocking blinds or curtains would make the bedrooms cooler.

Great location and well resolved

by Monique Davidson
We had a wonderful vacation joining family from around the globe and renting a couple cottages. Loved how close it is to the village and it is fun to people watch as they float by on kayak and SUP. Place was very functional and convenient in every way. We will be back again for sure.

A wonderful experience!

by Susannah Pfalzer
We loved, loved, loved this cottage. Truly a dream come true to stay right in the lovely town of Hanalei in this cottage, with a river right outside the house. So peaceful and beautiful! The cottage was perfect. Plenty of room for our family of three with everything we needed, comfortably furnished and adorable. The property manager, Michael, was super helpful as well. We hope to come back to this wonderful place and had the most wonderful time there.

A little piece of heaven!!

by Vicki Bamford
Our stay at the Dolphin Cottages was magical. Everything we needed, very comfortable, and lots of aloha spirit. We couldn't have asked for more except maybe another week! Mahalo Hanalei!
