The Kala Beach Cottage is an authentic Kekaha Sugar Plantation Managers Cottage. Lovingly restored with integrity by a professional interior designer, this cottage gives you the obvious sense of classic Hawaii living. Other amenities of this charming cottage include a private enclosed back yard and covered patio, giving the option for outdoor entertaining and/or sunbathing. Enjoy OCEAN VIEWS from the front lanai, and a brief 1 minute walk will take you to the ocean and stretches of sparkling white sand for 15 miles without a house. Here the reef comes onshore and provides protected pools for calm water and swimming. This is an ideal place for children to safely enjoy the water.

At the base, and within minutes of the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific', the WAIMEA CANYON offers sunny cool weather which is ideal for hiking the many miles of trails through varied native forests and canyon views. You can hike to the cliffs of the NA PALI COAST, often reaching 4000 feet, and see spectacular views of the jagged shoreline and deeply carved valleys where the first Hawaiians lived.

Another option is a 5 mile drive to POLIHALE BEACH STATE PARK, where wide stretches of sand for up to seven miles meet the Na Pali Coast. Here you will find a beach, framed with dunes of up to 100 feet and some of the most beautiful blue water you will see in Hawaii. At end of the beach, near the Na Pali cliffs, you will find showers, bathrooms, and pavilions. This is the place to escape and dry out in the sun on those days where clouds and rain obscure the sun, especially on the north and east shores in the Winter. This is an uncrowded treasure for beach and nature lovers.

This is the sunny westside of Kauai, where rain rarely occurs, and sunny mornings with cobalt blue skies are common. Why gamble your vacation by staying on the North Shore, where rain is constantly replenishing the lush green forests, and sunny days can be infrequent in the Winter months?

Why stay at the Waimea Plantation Cottages, where a 'garden view' cottage starts at $275 per night, when you can have the ultimate privacy of your own beach cottage within a few steps of white sand beaches that go on forever? This side of the island guarantees you an amazing end to each day, offering the opportunity to see a SIZZLING SUNSET over the Pacific Ocean. You may even see the 'green flash'! This is a sweet spot that is affordable when compared to other Kekaha options.

Bring your sunscreen and an umbrella.... you will need it...... because the sun shines here!

Charming, quiet, comfortable and off the beaten path.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage. It was very clean with comfortable beds. The decor is charming and comfortable. The location is great for hiking the Waimea canyon and getting away from crowds. The beach is very close with views from the front porch. We were there during the summer and the water was to rough to swim for kids. We played in the water a bit but the current, waves and riptide is very strong along this portion of the beach. We enjoyed walking along the beach and getting for feet/legs wet. We drove to the beach most days which was not a problem for us. This is an ideal spot for anyone who wants to get away from tourists, resorts and crowds. That means you need to drive for shopping and upscale restaurants. Returning to the quite cottage is worth it! There is normal noise from the coming and going of residence and the school across the street. Nothing alarming or over the top. The neighborhood is very quiet, safe and friendly.

We appreciated the bbq, boogie boards, umbrella, ice chests and beach chairs that were available to use. It made our time more enjoyable. There’s is also yard furniture in the front and back.

I would return to the cottage and have zero complaints or negative comments. The management team does an excellent job and are very friendly. My kids loved it here. They played in the yard, climbed the plumeria tree and played at the school

Playground across the street. Great for a family of 4 or smaller.

We enjoyed our stay at Kahal cottage. We were 3 adults and I wouldn’t suggest more than 4. It is very well equipped and an enjoyable place to stay.

Everything you could ever need was taken care of. A very well stocked pantry as well as everything you need for a day at the beach. We enjoyed the beautiful and well kept yard complete with barbeque and outdoor shower. The washer and dryer was a very convenient addition. Truly all the comforts of home away from home.We could not have asked for a more perfect holiday.

Loved this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Kala Beach Cottage and found it to be exactly as advertised. The cottage has plenty of kitchen utensils, clean pots and pans in great condition, beach towels, comfortable beds, excellent WI-FI and an absolutely amazing plantation shower!!! There is a nice breeze that blows through the cottage when the windows are open. Proximity to Waimea for local shopping needs and the Waimea Canyon is a huge plus. We enjoyed spending time on the Kekaha beach watching the waves. We also went to Salt Pond State Park to swim several times. So fun!!! We have stayed at three different places on Kauai and our family agrees hands down - this is our favorite!!!

Cute but tired

  • 3 of 5

The Cottage is very cute and well stocked (albeit ageing). It would benefit from a deep clean.

Although area ‘quiet’ the house is on the corner of a four-way stop which is relatively busy with buses general traffic and lorries taking & delivering to industrial facility a few blocks away.

We had a lovely holiday but house location was not really identified in previous reviews.

Adorable & comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Adorable and comfortable cottage! Me and my 75 year-old mother stayed at two places during a 10-day trip. And, our favorite part was staying 5 days at this house. Specifically, drinking morning coffee on the porch, never seeing another tourist, watching locals, listening to kids singing at the adjacent school (and, I'm not even a kid person), and making food in the kitchen which had ample basics. A friendly black & white kitty (I called her Kipu) was always welcoming and we definitely enjoyed her company. Highly recommended for those who appreciate the local life, like their own space, and walks on a beach. (As a general thought when walking on any beaches, please take a trash bag and fill it and show others that we appreciate using their beaches & leave it a little cleaner then we found it). I would rent again in a heartbeat.
