About the property

4 BR / 2ba plantation cottage steps to Poipu Beach,divided into 2 separate homes

Reminiscent of the elegance of a Hawaiian era gone by, this chic and comfortable duplex just had a complete transformation. The plantation home has been divided into separate living areas with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths & 2 completely remodeled kitchens. Located only 4 homes from the most beautiful beach in the world, it is a mere 1 minute walk. The lushly landscaped yard is a tropical paradise with expansive grass area surrounded by banana, papaya, & mango trees. The massive plumeria tree adjacent the huge lanai is the most tranquil setting to lounge.

Our home can easily accommodate 10 people and is beautifully furnished Hawaiian style.

The previous owners of the property called it the ' Beach Huts' in the VRBO listing & we realized that this understated the home so we changed the description to the Plantation Cottages which is much more appropriate. All the previous reviews reference the Beach Huts so don't be confused, same property, different name

Many personal Hawaiian touches showcasing the beauty and grace of old Hawaii in a fresh and clean island atmosphere with an open spacious floor plan.

Operated by a long-time local island family in their remodeled family home. Newly available for rental as a 4 br family compound set on1/2 acre. perfect for extended families wanting to stay together and yet have privacy

Only 4 homes form the sand .A short 1 minute stroll to the center of sandy Poipu beach and Brennecke’s beach, renown for body surfing and boogie boarding, or enjoy a 5 minute walk on the beach to the Marriott. Ocean so close that the sound of waves will sing you to sleep.

Watch the whales from shore and observe the monk seals resting on our beach during the day.

In the evening, take a stroll under the moonlight to dine in any of the three restaurants that are just a walking distance away.

About Lance Peto

Although born & raised in Canada, I discovered Kauai in 1969 & fell in love with this tropical paradise. We have a home in Kalaheo, 15 minutes to the beach & when this property became available I jumped at the opportunity to purchase it. The previous owners were born & raised here & transformed the home & gardens into 'Eden'. The family spent every day at the beach, returning home to relax in this serene, peaceful beautiful setting

Lance Peto purchased this house in 2014

Why Lance Peto chose South Shore

This home was passed down from Hawaiian family to Hawaiian family. Its so close to the beach,you can see it standing from the street front. Yet, located quietly on a dead end street. Now we want other families to enjoy the relaxing and carefree beach home and get a glimpse of what its like to get back to the basics....time with family & enjoy the Hawaiian era of days gone by. This is truly a one of a kind property !

We remodeled the cottages, connected the lanais & removed a barrier fence separating the cottages. It is now easy to mingle & stay connected with the entire family and yet you can escape to your own cottage for quiet time or to get away.

We added air conditioning & there are ceiling fans in every room to enhance the tropical feel.

What makes this house unique

Experience spectacular sunsets, minute walk to Poipu/Brenneke Beach, Access to local Fruit trees (Papaya, Banana, citrus, Coconut when in season), located in a quiet dead end street, Beautiful Orchid beds, Native flower trees, Walking distance to three bar/restaurants and Marriott, Koa-Kea Poipu Beach Hotel, early morning dolphin and turtle watching and more!!!

The Best of Poipu

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Travelers.... If you are thinking of staying at the Poipu Beach Plantation Cottages on Kuai near Brenekees Bar & Grill, if you book, you will arrive upon a half acre of tropical Heaven. The Duplex Cottages have everything you'll ever need to make your stay comfortable and fulfilling! We have stayed there twice so far and have booked a third stay in 6 months. We love the spacious yard and all the fruit trees. We love the out door showers and the privacy. We love having 2 kitchens and 2 separate houses, both with large Lanais (decks) for eating and enjoying a BBQ. We love the short walk to the beach to be with the turtles late at night or early in the morning. We love the Sunrises and sunsets, both from the same beach!! We love how dark it gets, so we can see the stars better! The beds are comfy and the AC works great for those Hot days... All in all, It's just a little patch of Heaven for our large family... AND, it get better. The owner is building a pool on the adjacent lot. Book your stay today and enjoy Poipu beach in a Hawaiian Plantation style get-a-way!!!

Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Family of 6 Adults and 3 children under 5 years of age. The owner was very receptive to all emails and response time was very prompt. The two cottages were ideal for our family and great garden to sit back and relax. Loved the beach being so close ideal for the little ones and great surfing,swimming and snorkelling. Great walks around especially Shipwreck Bay and so many restaurants, especially Brennekes the Service and food was fabulous.

Would recommend the cottages to all of my friends what a great place for a family holiday.

Perfect for extended families and small children

  • 5 of 5

The layout of this property was ideal for our family. We had a total of 4 adults and 4 children (2, 4, 5, and 6 years old) for our stay. The two cottage layout with connecting lanai gave us the perfect mix of family time and privacy. It was fantastic being a couple minutes away from the beach. Every morning after breakfast we took the kids down to the beach for a swim and snorkel. Every morning we were treated to seals and turtles on the beach. The snorkeling was much better than I expected and was calm and shallow enough to take my 5 year old with me every day. There is also a sheltered, calm area that was perfect for my 2 year old. There is a shopping center within walking distance which leaves the option of cooking at home or going out without much needed planning in advance. The stock of equipment in the kitchen made it easy to prepare meals when we wanted to. The kids also had a blast running around the back yard grass area and the property is well maintained with fruit trees in the back. The owner is very responsive by email. The only negative (if you can call it that) is that only one of the boogie boards wasn't broken and there was an issue with the screen on the front door when we arrived, but these are really minor in comparison to the lovely experience we had. I would definitely recommend it and would stay here again.

Spent a week with my children and grown grandchildren to celebrate my 80th birthday. We had both cottages and lots of room. There were 8 of us. Walked to the beach, about one block. Everything was very convenient and we would highly recommend it.Thank you for a marvelous vacation.

Very comfortable and felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We had our whole family in both units. The beach was close and the yard was a great place to gather. Everyone from the 4 year old to the 54 year old had a great time. There is air conditioning, but we never used it just kept all the windows open and used the shades to block the heat of the day. Having the laundry facilities and full kitchens was an added comfort. We would definitely book here again.
