It is currently being used to disinfect airlines, subways, hospitals etc. It is effective on otherwise hard to disinfect objects like chairs, sofas, cupboards, beds etc. Vital oxide is a clear solution that kills viruses, mold, bacteria, fungus and mildew. It is CDC approved to disinfect for COVID-19. This treatment greatly reduces the chance of cross contamination during the cleaning and gives guests (and cleaners) added assurance that house is not contaminated. ------ Managed by Kayak Kaua'i --- A short walk from the beach and some of the best surf on Kaua'i! A rustic but genteel retreat, this cottage is a small but charming two room plantation green cottage with white trim that sleeps two. A great honeymoon retreat. Rustic in its simplicity, this cottage was designed in the single wall construction popular during the 1930's and which has been lovingly restored with tropical ceiling fans in each room. An open air lanai covers both sides of the cottage. The kitchen is well supplied with dishes, utensils, pots and pans, table, chairs, a double deep sink, refrigerator, a two gas burner stove, and toaster oven. Cool Spanish pavers tile the floors throughout. Custom cabinetry is found in both rooms. The indoor shower is attractively lined with alpine slate. A pedestal sink graces the bathroom The kitchen is well supplied with dishes, utensils, pots and pans, table, chairs, a double deep sink, and refrigerator. The only bedroom has a queen sized bed a radio/CD / MP 3 player with a small compliment of CD's. There is a flat panel TV connected to cable. There is a DVD player and WI FI internet access. To adjust you to the island pace and way of life, we have eliminated telephones. Most major cell phone carriers work. Includes towels and linens. The laundry area is shared with Rainbow House, with a private entrance giving you access to a tiled laundry area equipped with a washer and dryer. Landscaped for individual privacy, both vacation rentals share the same landscape of palms, limes, oranges, avocado, breadfruit papayas, and other tropical ornamentals. The premises are located one block from Hanalei Bay on the North Shore of Kaua'i Both the Garden Surf Cottage and Rainbow House are at the quiet end of the cu-de-sac of Malolo Place and are within a short walk or bicycle ride of the nearby town of Hanalei, which lies sandwiched between mountain peaks cascading with distant waterfalls and the emerald shores of Hanalei Bay. Hanalei is an hour drive from the airport of Lihu'e and is the gateway to the Na Pali Coast. Cancellation: If you cancel (for any reason) and we manage to re-rent your unit for exact dates booked & cancelled, you will receive a full refund minus a $100 handling fee. If we do not manage to re-rent all cancelled dates, we will credit the dates we manage to re-rent minus $100 handling fee. There is no refund due to inclement weather. --- Less is More at your Garden Surf Cottage Retreat As of 2/20/20 any new booking after that need to know that will be phasing out Cable TV beginning 1st of January 2021 There remains a flat screen TV for DVD’s + HIGH SPEED INTERNET /WIFI for downloads of favorite programs, movies and for communication purposes. -- Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: TVR-1059HITRANSIACMDCERTIFTA-048-505-2416-01More

About the neighbourhood
Equidistant and in walking distance from Hanalei Bay and/or town. Located In a quiet cul-de-sac sandwiched between the main Kuhio two lane road and the little neighborhood road of Weke. Surf, snorkel or beach walk nearby.
Getting around
After you tire of walking to nearby Hanalei Bay and/or town you might want to hire a car. Am a minimalist but a rental car is a good idea.
