Does anyone have any information on Cushnie Cottages -Hale Maile house in Hanalei? Thanks in advance.
We are traveling to Kauai in May 2008 with our two young sons and are looking to stay in Hanalei. Does anyone know if this area would be good for kids? We wanted a place close to the beach but affordable. Any help anyone could give would be appreciated. Thank you.
I don't know about the cottages but my children loved Hanalei and especially boogie boarding in Hanalei Bay.Snorkelling next door in front of the Princeville Hotel was good.My children are 12 and 9 but my wife(over 50 sshhh!)tried surfing for the first time and soon after her lesson started she was actually standing up and coming in on the waves.I'm sure you will enjoy a great family vacation.
Thank you for your response. Hanalei Bay looks beautiful and the cottage we are looking at is just past the elementary school on the mountain side of Kuhio Highway. Does anyone have any info about that neighborhood or that area? It's our first time to Kauai and I want it to be great!
Hello from a fellow Tucsonan!
Hanalei is certainly a great place for a family. However, my experience is that it is really difficult to find a place there that is both close to the ocean and affordable. From the pictures on the website, I'm pretty sure I have driven right by the house several times, but have never seen the inside. The rates certainly seem reasonable for the area.
The possible drawback would be that the unit is right on the road and you will likely have a fair amount of road noise. You are also 3-4 blocks from the main part of Hanalei where all the shops and restaurants are located. You're only about 2 blocks from the beach and in May the water should be calm enough for swimming and boogie boarding.
Thank you for your response. I think we may just hope for the best and book that cottage. Everything I have read about Hanalei sounds wonderful. Wish us luck!
Hi - I just booked the cottages for August. Please respond to this thread once you get back so that we can go prepared.
I will definitely let you know. I figure bad news would travel alot faster than good, so we decided to give it a shot.
