Property description

Vacation at Ellie’s Koloa House at Poipu Kauai!

I’m Ellie and I have been providing affordable places to stay for vacationers on Kaua’i for the past 12 years. I invite you and your family to relax in my lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath Hawaiiana style house located in the heart of historic Old Koloa Town. Enjoy beautiful new hardwood floors and marble counter tops.

Ellie’s Koloa House is a 5-minute stroll to quaint shops and restaurants and only a few minutes drive to Poipu Beach Park or Shipwreck Beach.

Poipu Beach is famous for its sunny, mild weather and features some of the best snorkeling and swimming on the island, plus there is an area with protected waters suitable for families with small children. There are wonderful restaurants, boutique shopping and 2 golf courses in the Poipu area.

My charming, well-cared-for home boasts a beautiful seasonal tropical garden of plumeria, hibiscus, banana, papaya, ginger, ti, heliconia, avocado, lychee and an assortment of palms.
People often comment they love the feel of old Hawaii when they stay in my Koloa House. The outside covered lanai is perfect for dining and relaxing. The updated kitchen is spacious and well equipped. Everything you need for a relaxing Poipu vacation!

Ellie’s Koloa House is conveniently located for exploring all of Kauai’s spectacular scenic wonders, beaches and numerous activities. Waimea Canyon is just 45 minutes to the west and the gorgeous North Shore is within an hours drive.

'For years Ellie ran the popular Koloa Landing Cottages, then in 2007, she sold that business and renovated an old plantation house in the heart of Koloa. This two-bedroom/two-bathroom home, surrounded by tropical gardens, is for the traveler who wants a “real” Hawaii experience living in a residential area, like a local resident.

Ellie, who has a terrific eye for color and design has taken this plain-Jane house and converted it into a whimsical tropical cottage — perfect for a family. Entry is through a plant-filled, outdoor lanai, where you will find you will spend all your time — just like Hawaii residents.

The house (with full kitchen) has antique furniture recovered in old Hawaiian print fabric, with paddle fans to keep the house cool, TV, washer and dryer, barbecue, and everything you can think of to make your vacation. Just a mile and a half to the beach and walking distance to Koloa town's shops and restaurants.' — FROMMER'S REVIEW

Also let me know the dates you are considering and the number in your party (adults/children). I am happy to put a courtesy hold on Ellie’s Koloa House while you explore your options.

If calling, please let me know your time zone since I live in Hawaii and we are 3-6 hours behind mainland hours.

I would love to have you as my guest.

Come share my Aloha!
Ellie
