Kauai Garden Cottages should be ashamed! During our recent trip to Kauai, we booked three nights at Lynn and Thayne Taylor guest house, Kauai Garden Cottage, through VRBO. From the moment we pulled into the driveway, we were beyond disappointed. Their website and advertising claims the cottage is "private, quiet and secluded." Absolutely untrue. The "cottage" is located STEPS from the front door of the main house. The windows in the cottage look directly into the main house. Even worse...you can hear EVERYTHING. Every conversation. And, if it's not bad enough that you can hear, and see, their every move. To add to they extremely awkward stay, they are consistently being invasive; reminding their guests to "shut the windows" and "be sure to turn off the lights." And, just in case you forget how to be an adult, they have "friendly" reminder notes in the cottage. [continued below]....
.......EVERYWHERE! "Please, no hair dying in the bathroom," just to name one.
Quiet? I don't think so. The unforgiving and heartless hosts, Lynn and Thayne Taylor, continued their full-on construction, completed with a full international construction team, during our entire stay. It was 4 feet from our front door and began promptly at 8:00 a.m. each morning and continued through 6:00 p.m. I am not kidding. Apparently, they are buidling a sound studio. I don't see the "noise" issue improving.
Lastly, I think it's important to note that I am not your typical reviewer who hides behind a computer to complain. During our stay, I did the adult thing and confronted Thayne about our concerns. He was unapologetic, heartless and cruel. He, and I quote, said "well, most people our out during the day." It was 6:00 p.m. at this point. Really, Kauai Garden Cottages? Have you read your own website?
