Kapaa cottage description

Live just steps from the beach in our ocean front cottage! If you ask anyone in the world what their dream destination is, chances are they are going to tell you “Hawaii.” With alluring ocean waves, breathtaking landscapes, and a vast amount of natural beauty surrounding the island-it is no surprise why millions of vacationers visit this destination each year. While there are hundreds of cities in Hawaii, one of the most awe-inspiring hotspots is Kauai. From rich beach hangouts to an array of activities such as parasailing and surfing; the opportunities are endless.

Located on Baby Beach in Kapaa, families can bring their children to swim because of a shallow and safe natural lava rock wall running parallel to the shore. This right in-town beach is a long time favorite easy stop for families to play in the water & for local workers to take a break by the ocean after work in our largest town on the island. A short walk to the north offers a more adult swimming area. A bus system runs regularly and reliably & can take you to the many sites throughout the island with a bus stop conveniently located 3 blocks from the house.

Our 85 year old, Plantation style, Hawaiian cottage is a comfortable fully furnished 3 bedroom 1250 sq.ft. beach house with 4 outside seating areas catering to those who care for a clean, relaxing base after a spectacular day of exploring our Island. The cottage bedrooms have a King in one & a queen bed in another & a double with a futon available as well in the 3rd bedroom. The small kitchen is fully equipped for anyone who has a sense for preparing a great meal. Nearby Farmers markets abound in the area. We also have a veggie garden to share with guests.

We are a short walk from bike, snorkel, kayaking & shops. Nearby are supermarkets, health food stores and excellent restaurants. A spectacular 6 mile paved path along the coast beckons you to walk, bike or picnic. Along the path, you can watch turtles at sunset feeding & occasionally witness a rare monk seal coming in for a rest on the beach. And recently the bike path now extends to our front door. Use our two bikes to ride downtown along the ocean.

You are invited to enjoy a fantastic vacation in a Hawaiian downtown beach vacation rental.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1927

              About: I am the Property Manager & live just minutes away from our cottage on the beach. I have been living on Kauai for the last 7 years & have been working with renting out personal properties the whole time. I have design experience & love the spectacular natural beauty of Kauai & use these influences to create relaxing, clean environments for guests.

              Why Kapaa:
              This historical area, Baby Beach, features some of the original beach houses on the island & this sweet cottage is recently re-furbished. More renovations are on the way for this property as this neighborhood is unique & it is a pleasure to be a part of a sustainable re-vitalization for the community.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Orchids abound in our side garden with some blooming & some almost ready. The new touches around the outside shower surrounded with more plants is a tropical dream to experience & with 4 outside seating areas, one area covered from the elements, you can experiece ocean views one time, a private moment with the the colorful garden surrounding you in another setting or enjoy a great barbecue meal outside in another. Also, Forbes has just named Kapaa, one of the prettiest towns in America! The movie, The Descendants, brought our fair town more attention.
