Kilauea cottage description

Twin Hearts is a wonderful private new one bedroom, one bath handcrafted rental honeymoon cottage on our 7.5 acre Kauai North Shore estate and farm parcel. The handcrafted cottage has lovely views and a toasty hot tub, as well as close beach proximity.

Our guests rave about it!

Additional photos are available via e-mail upon request.

Twin Hearts is an exquisite, architecturally interesting, sustainable redwood home with lots of special features and privacy, about 200 yards (and lots of hedges and trees) from our house.

Twin Hearts is accessed via a completely private 200 foot long rolled gravel driveway from the paved cul-de-sac road.

The cottage is comfortably and tastefully furnished, island style, with a handcarved king sized poster bed with soft cotton sheets in the bedroom, a tiled bathroom, and a full-on entertainment center with satellite TV, DVD, and CD stereo. Furniture and furnishings are oriental and island-style, with some antiques and original art.

For those who enjoy using the internet, we offer high speed WI-FI.

As a special perk, the cottage now comes with a Tandem Kayak, complete with paddles, backrests, life preservers and car roof rack, perfect for jungle river adventures on Kauai's numerous waterways. That's WAY fun and easy, even if you have never kayaked before!

For those interested in preparing meals, there is a fully equipped tiled kitchen with range, convection oven, microwave, and full size refrigerator. For convenience sake, we have installed a washer and dryer, as well as a hot and cold outdoor shower for washing the sand off when returning from Kahili-Quarry beach, which is just down the road, or any other one of the 10 world class beaches nearby.

Consistent trade breezes normally keep you cool and refreshed although, to be on the safe side, we have installed a decorative tropical ceiling fan in the bedroom, and another in the living area.

There are a myriad of world class beaches close nearby. Kahili Quarry Beach is within walking distance, or you may zip down with your rental car. Kalihiwai Beach and the trailhead to Secret Beach are just 6-7 minutes away. Also nearby are Anini Beach, Hideaways, Waiakalua (wanna be all alone on a tropical beach?) and the scenic Kilauea Lighthouse, where you can begin a free, guided, pre-arranged tour of the Crater Hill National Wildlife Refuge. Ask us how to sign up!

When looking at a map of Kauai, use the Kilauea Lighthouse as a locator- it is the northernmost point on the island, and the cottage is about 1.5 miles to the southeast. The location is convenient- close to restaurants, bakeries, 2 farmer's markets each week, and fun shopping. It is an easy drive further west to Princeville (10 minutes) or Hanalei (15 minutes) yet not far the other direction to the East and South sides and to Waimea Canyon on the West side.

So let's see... ocean views, mountain views, private hot tub, acreage privacy, beach proximity, kitchen, dishwasher, washer, dryer, wireless high-speed internet access, a tandem kayak, and a stunning, affordable handcrafted cottage. It doesn't get better than this. Come to Kauai and enjoy it in class at our private cottage!
