    We stayed 7 nights in Canal Cottage B. Such a great alternative to a condo, hotel or resort. Well located, close to Kapaa and a great base for road trips North and South. We can't wait to return in the future.

    Location was well situated just outside Kapaa (where a lot of the good restaurants, etc. are). Accommodations were quaint and away from the bustle. Was very convenient to have laundry on-site (less to pack). Will definitely make a return trip!

    Yes, Canal units both have outside walls and share one adjoining wall. I never heard noise from any of the units. Canal units do not have air conditioning so the windows are open all the time.

    No bugs and very clean. The WIFI worked fine for us. We felt very at home there. There was a baby gecko on the porch, but so cute and fun to watch.
