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.

Hanalei stay

by Theresa Owens
I had a great time during my recent Hanalei vacation. We lucked out and had great weather. Hawaii is taking the pandemic seriously and everyone wears masks in town. At the beach, people distance, and don't wear masks. I felt very safe.

Relaxing stay by the river

by Jacqueline Murdoch
We really enjoyed staying at Dolphin Cottage - it was great to be able to walk into town, and the setting is lovely and relaxing. Downsides were the noise from construction at Cottage #4 and the noise of restaurant staff leaving when they finished their shift but overall, I would thoroughly recommend it!

Honeymoon Hideaway

by Brendan Halligan
We stayed here for 8 days for our Honeymoon. I was very homey and had everything we needed during our week's excursions. The washer/dryer and the hose came in clutch after long hiking trips (very muddy trails). It has a grill which we took advantage of. The outdoor shower was perfect after a day at the beach. It had big windows, we looked out over the river and watched the kayakers go by. It was clean and had plenty of towels (bath and beach).

Mike G. was the attendant at the property. He was sweet, welcoming, and very knowledgeable about the island. He gave us great suggestions when it came to beach locations and dinner options.

Hanalei Bay is a great location to stay. We could walk to dinner from our cottage. Staying here at the cottage was by far a much better choice than any hotel/resort for a true Kauai experience.

We highly recommend Dolphin Cottages. We will be returning in the future!

Great cozy cottage!

by Kevin Gerzevitz
We enjoyed staying here. The place is charming with a great view of the river. All the basic necessities are here. The only drawbacks: one of the bed mattresses is too worn out and squishy, you can hear your neighboring cottage really well so better hope they are not loud and insensitive like ours were. The property manager is super nice and responsive!

Paradise

by Robert Mainini
We love these cottages. We have stayed a number of times over the past 10 years. It is our go-to place. We love the outdoor showers - ahhhh just thinking about them. Washer/dryer access is key. We also love the access to the river and the ability to store the paddle boards or kayaks on site. No car carrying!

The cottage provides everything you need. I forgot there was no coffee grinder but the property manager lent us his and said they were going to furnish all the cottages based on our request. How great is that!? Speaking of the property manager, he was awesome and responsive.

I would absolutely recommend these cottages. We will be back!

Two minor comments:
1. The beds are fine but the couches and chairs are uncomfortable.
2. We stayed for 2 weeks. We would request a cleaning after 1 week.
