Private Homes cottage description

Turtle Cove Cottage is located on the sunny south shore of Kauai, 80 feet from the ocean with views from the kitchen, living room and deck.

The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet with beaches just a short walk in either direction. This romantic cottage is located at Ho’ai Bay, with some of the best swimming and snorkeling in Poipu and on the island. (Lawai beach and Whaler’s cove ). There is even a Baby Beach across the street with several beach accesses to enjoy this serene and relaxing beach. Just take your favorite beverage and your beach chair and enjoy. for the younger at heart there is the famous PK’s for surfing.

This classic cottage was built in 1993 to resemble a traditional Hawawiian plantation style cottage. It's a very comfortable place to spend time either inside or out.The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet with beaches just a short walk in either direction. Listen to the sound of the surf and relax with a meal, a drink or just a good book. A number of past guests have been on their honeymoon and given us great reviews. On a hot day you can take a break inside with top quality air conditioning. No big resort scene - just relax.

There are several shopping centers in the area, a variety of restaurants and several top quality golf courses.

About: Jeff and I (Bev) currently live in Coronado, Ca and Kauai. We are avid boaters and belong to the Coronado Yacht Club AND the Nawiliwili Yacht Club in Kauai. We recently went from racing sailboats to cruising power boats. We are active and love meeting new friends and enjoying our hobbies. (wine tasting, walking, cruising and our kids and grandkids) Jeff brought me to Kauai for our Honeymoon and I fell in love. After visiting all the islands over the years, I just couldn't believe how original and natural Kauai was. I love the Aloha Spirit which is such a part of LIFE in Kauai. We also have our home in the Wailua Homestead area near Kapaa that is located on the Wailua River and a waterfall. We bought our Turtle Cove Cottage after seeing it once! I couldn't believe that we found this secluded road so near the ocean and all the activities while remaining "so original". I am originally from Ohio and lived in New Mexico, Texas, Arizona and California. After graduating from SMU in Dallas I immediately moved to Phoenix to begin my financial career. I have spent my career in all things related to Real Estate including financing, building, selling and buying. I my passion is to remodel and redecorate homes. I can't wait to add my touch to Turtle Cove Cottage. We will be redecorating with all new furniture, linens, bedding, artwork and expanding the Lanai and living areas. We hope you love the bright colors and the Beach feel. Watch for the new photos early May. Jeff is from California and retired from the Software business with his last venture of developing software for Wine Clubs. Now you can imagine what one of our hobbies is. Jeff has now consults with a small company in San Diego that makes furniture from wine barrels AND has developed a wine barrel quick smoker. Again, it seems we have been fortunate to do what we love. And we love Kauai. Please come and visit our Aloha island. Create a your lifetime memory, Mahalo, Bev & J

Why Private Homes:
We love all that Poipu offers. While visiting our son and his family while they were staying at the Marriott, we drove up Hoona Rd and fell in LOVE. Turtle Cove Cottage was for sale and we got to see it 1 day before we were leaving. Having only spent 1 hour at the house, we got home and decided we had to have it. It was perfect! The street was so friendly with travelers walking with their drinks to the many beach accesses across the street to the cozy cottage feel of Turtle Cove. We can sit on our lanai and see the ocean, the beach and the snorkeling cove. We can take a walk to the park, the Beach House restaurant where every night people gather at their beach and watch the gorgeous sunsets. We hear the ocean and the many birds singing. Hoona road is so close to everything yet, so secluded and private. As I said, It's perfect for perfect vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Watching the sunsets, playing ukulele with friends across from Beach House Restaurant, walking to PK's to surf, Lawai Beach to swim and snorkel, Ho 'ai bay swimming with the turtles, walking through or relaxing at Prince Kuhio Park, lounging around reading a good book on Baby Beach, long walks to the harbor in the morning, oatmeal with fresh papaya, mangos, watching amazing breathtaking sunset, eating fresh-cooked shrimp from the Mobile Shrimp Lady, eating dinner at Keoki's from their bar menu, walking to the Sheraton on a full moon night for dinner, star gazing at goes on and on!
