We spent a week at the little cottage and found it to be set in a peaceful and quiet area. The view is beautiful and we enjoyed watching the Nenes (Hawaiian geese) in the yard. The cottage itself is very nice, but could have been a bit cleaner for the price we paid. The trek down to Secrets Beach was tough, but well worth the effort. The beach is beautiful and not populated. The lighthouse is off to the right and makes for a picturesque view. We would definitely recommend staying in the North Shores area of Kauai. It's a beautiful island and this end is the best.
