Ke'ola Beach Cottage is located smack dab in the heart of Poipu on little Pane Road, one of the last remaining 'old Hawaii' residential streets in the area. With nothing between the cottage and the ocean, 100 steps out the door is Brennecke's beach, famous for its perfect boogie boarding waves, and if you are looking for calmer water and beautiful snorkeling, just walk next door to Poipu beach park, always on the 'top ten' list of Hawaiian beaches. Full of hustle and bustle during the day, the beaches at night become a stunning quiet oasis - best place for a moonlit walk, or a picnic dinner by the water.
Ke'ola Cottage is located about 60 feet from the Poipu Kai greenbelt walking path. This path is beautiful lighted walkway connecting everything in the area - so within a ten minute stroll you can get to the Hyatt Regency and Shipwreck beach, the Sheraton, Marriot Waiohai, Kiahuna Plantation, Ko Kea Resort ( the old Poipu Beach Hotel), Poipu Kai, Poipu Shopping Village, not to mention dozens of restaurants. Tennis is right out your back door, and the Kiahuna Golf Course and Grand Hyatt Coarse are both about a 5 minute drive away. Don't forget to check out the National Tropical Botanical Garden, and on your way there stop by Spouting Horn for the gorgeous views and the best prices on Hawaiian jewelry and trinkets.
If you like farmers markets there are two GREAT ones during the week - first is the Koloa Sunshine market every Monday and noon sharp!, located at the Koloa ball park, and all the produce is grown here on Kauai. The 2nd is the Culinary Market on Wednesdays, 4:00 pm, at the Shops at Kukuiula, There is always live music, cooking demonstrations, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, as well as prepared food vendors. - make sure you buy a slice of pie from 'The Right Slice'! This is the 'happening' place on Wednesdays for locals and tourists alike. From Kukuiula Harbor, you can catch a trip to one of the more than 20 dive sites right off our south coast, or take it slower with a sunset or whale watching trip. Take it even more easy and schedule yourself a day at one of the several spas (Hyatt has my favorite!) in the area. Again, the cottage is in a great location - right next to the Koloa Heritage Trail, which you can follow with an interpretive map and learn the history of the Koloa and Poipu area.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Aloha! Brent, originally from Oregon, and I (Karen) originally from Ohio, both moved to Kauai in the early 1980's (when we were too young to know any better) met, fell in love, got married, and have been here ever since. With my design background and Brent being a general contractor, we began Olson Homes Inc. which is a design/build firm specializing in custom homes here on the south side. We live in Kalaheo, but ever since I came here and fell in love with Kauai, I dreamed of having a little place in Poipu, near the beach. I never thought it would happen, but this property kind of fell in our laps and my dream came true! And we set out to build our perfect beach cottage. We named it Ke'ola, 'the life', because we feel it represents the amazing quality of life that Kauai has to offer. Karen is a plein air (outdoor) painter, and you can see her work at www.kauaipainter.com.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: Perfect location and an incredible beach house.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We manage this rental ourselves, live in Kalaheo (15 minutes away) and Brent is usually working in Poipu - so anything that we have overlooked we can take care of immediately. Just call or text, and we will take care it.
