The Kala Beach Cottage is an authentic Kekaha Sugar Plantation Managers Cottage. Lovingly restored with integrity by a professional interior designer, this cottage gives you the obvious sense of classic Hawaii living. Other amenities of this charming cottage include a private enclosed back yard and covered patio, giving the option for outdoor entertaining and/or sunbathing. Enjoy OCEAN VIEWS from the front lanai, and a brief 1 minute walk will take you to the ocean and stretches of sparkling white sand for 15 miles without a house. Here the reef comes onshore and provides protected pools for calm water and swimming. This is an ideal place for children to safely enjoy the water.
At the base, and within minutes of the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific', the WAIMEA CANYON offers sunny cool weather which is ideal for hiking the many miles of trails through varied native forests and canyon views. You can hike to the cliffs of the NA PALI COAST, often reaching 4000 feet, and see spectacular views of the jagged shoreline and deeply carved valleys where the first Hawaiians lived.
Another option is a 5 mile drive to POLIHALE BEACH STATE PARK, where wide stretches of sand for up to seven miles meet the Na Pali Coast. Here you will find a beach, framed with dunes of up to 100 feet and some of the most beautiful blue water you will see in Hawaii. At end of the beach, near the Na Pali cliffs, you will find showers, bathrooms, and pavilions. This is the place to escape and dry out in the sun on those days where clouds and rain obscure the sun, especially on the north and east shores in the Winter. This is an uncrowded treasure for beach and nature lovers.
This is the sunny westside of Kauai, where rain rarely occurs, and sunny mornings with cobalt blue skies are common. Why gamble your vacation by staying on the North Shore, where rain is constantly replenishing the lush green forests, and sunny days can be infrequent in the Winter months?
Why stay at the Waimea Plantation Cottages, where a 'garden view' cottage starts at $275 per night, when you can have the ultimate privacy of your own beach cottage within a few steps of white sand beaches that go on forever? This side of the island guarantees you an amazing end to each day, offering the opportunity to see a SIZZLING SUNSET over the Pacific Ocean. You may even see the 'green flash'! This is a sweet spot that is affordable when compared to other Kekaha options.
Bring your sunscreen and an umbrella.... you will need it...... because the sun shines here!

This little cottage is perfect. It is lovely and so nicely done up. It also had everything you could need for your stay - the kitchen is better equipped than mine!! It even had hair straighteners, not that I ever got that fancy! My little boy loved the garden (and running through the sprinklers every evening). We loved the comfy beds...and the outside shower made every morning a treat! Really can't fault this place - thanks for letting us stay here!

Fabulous Kala Beach Cottage
Fabulous Kala Beach Cottage
I would highly recommend this lovely cottage. It had everything - beach towels, snorkel and fins, beach chairs, wonderful shower post activities, two TVs, nice backyard, well stocked kitchen. The decor was perfect! We sat outside to relax with a glass of wine. The cottage is close to Waimea Canyon and Koke'e State Park where you can hike to the Na Pali Coast. There is a stunning beach at Polihale State Park which is about 15-20 minutes away. Enjoy!!

NIcely restored older house

Interesting house, nicely restored. The bathroom with the clawfoot tub and the semi-outdoor shower are nice touches. It was very clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated and only a short walk from a small, nice beach. It was a great location for exploring Waimea Canyon and Polihale Beach. I was briefly disappointed that the sand has eroded from Kekaha Beach Park, but a local gave me directions for a short drive to where the sandy beach starts about a mile further up the road.

Our week in paradise
Our week in paradise
Our first trip to Hawaii found us at this delightful spot on the west side. We couldn't have been happier! The cottage is so well equipped for just about anything. We're pretty domestic, like to cook, so had some kind of seafood every day. Good sources: Ishihara Market in Waimea (for poke) and Koloa Fish Market in Koloa. The canyon is such a surprise! Also, Polihale Beach... dark enough on a moonless night that Venus cast shadows!! Never needed A/C, fans were fine. Grill works great. Thanks for the beach chairs, and blender in cupboard for pina coladas. Cottage is very comfortable, clean, nicely appointed, and has just about everything. Really enjoyed the indoor/outdoor shower. Mahalo to Scott and Chad for this great place and a swell week on Kauai. Lou and Wes, Portland, OR

Engaged on the beach
Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful rental in Kekaha last month. Your house was so lovely, truly you've done an impressive job. We had a blast! Actually got engaged right down the beach from your house :) So, special trip all round.

Couldn't Have Been Better
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kala Cottage! It's such a cute place. We love stocking food from Ishihara and spend a whole day at Polihale so Kala Cottage couldn't be more convenient for us! Next time we visit Kauai, we definitely want to stay there again. Thanks! Tsumugi & Joel

Lovely, Lovely home
Lovely, Lovely home
What a lovely place! Being on this side of the island was great and while places as close as 10 miles away and north were rainy and stormy, at the Kala Cottage, I was able to be at the beach in dry weather! The neighborhood has a very 'local' feel to it and the neighbors were kind and extremely friendly and helpful. You got the benefits of being away from all the 'tourist' activities and crowds, but were close enough that if you did want that experience, it wasn't far away. The house was clean and the perfect size with everything that you could possibly need there. I am looking forward to going back to Kala Cottage!

What a charming little house! Beautifully restored plantation workers cottage in perfect condition. All the details were right, nicely furnished and very comfortable beds. Good kitchen, well supplied with tools, appliances and (matching!) dishes. One block from the Ocean, great sunsets. Tree full of oranges in the fenced in back yard. Interesting (and flat) residential area to walk around. The house sits across from the end/small parking area of a catholic primary school, so kind of noisy around 2pm, but who is home then anyway. Very sunny end of a rather rainy but beautiful island.
