About the property

4 BR / 2ba plantation cottage steps to Poipu Beach with private pool

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.

We repaired & re-built the private swimming pool which was damaged in the last hurricane. This is the only property along the Poipu beach coast with a swimming pool. The previous owners could not afford to make the repairs & it has taken over a year to complete. The massive lava wall, lush landscaping , gated entry offer a one a kind experience.

Guests must acknowledge the swimming pool waiver & release of liability along with the pool rules which are in the attachments.The code for the pool lock will be provided once the guests acknowledge the waiver & rules.

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.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The location was great for our large group - it was nice to have one house for the families with kids and one house for those without. We would definitely stay there again.

Christmas Wedding on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

the 2 cottages were perfect. the large yard was spacious and provided a beautiful setting for my daughter's wedding. the privacy of yard enabled us to enjoy ourselves into the late night. the beach was a block away. shops were within walking distance. there is a small pool that also offered quiet privacy. Lance was prompt to respond to any questions that I might have.

Ideal place for large gathering!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends had the most incredible time staying here. The layout of the house is two identical units connected by a wrap around lanai. Each side of the house or unit has 2 bedrooms, one bath, laundry, living room and kitchen--perfect for a group of people who want to spend time together but also value privacy and being able to break into two groups. The house is well stocked (towels, pots, pans, drink dispensers, etc.), is walking distance to Poipu Beach and Brennecke's and is a few minute drive from Koloa Town. I would highly recommend this place for a family or friend gathering!

Awesome family retreat minutes from beach

  • 5 of 5

My parents, husband and 2 year old stayed here for a week in Oct and we loved everything about it! The duplex itself is great. Good floor plan, nice upgrades (including laundry and kitchens). it was nice for the grandparents to have a little space from the little one in their own unit:) The yard was safe for my 2 year old to run and play and chase chickens. The pool was gated so the baby couldn't get in unless she was with us. Location was perfect, nice and quiet (although there is no place in Kauai safe from the roosters) and minutes from several beaches. We spent most of our time at baby beach which had no waves and was less than 5 min walk from the house. This house had nice surprises such as tons of sand toys (buckets, shovels, etc) a couple beach chairs, and some snorkels. The owner, Lance is awesome and very responsive. I asked for a packNplay and he also had high chair he put in the place once he knew I had a little one. We can't wait to take our next vacation here!!!

Gorgeous tropical property.

  • 5 of 5

I rented both cottages for myself-4 kids and my brother and his family-2 toddlers. We had a wonderful time! Kids enjoyed the room to run and the large frogs! Lemon tree and beautiful flowering trees. Free range chickens were a hit as well. As for accommodations-we couldn't have been happier. Large open kitchen dining living area as well as good size bedrooms. Bathroom was large and beautifully tiled. Laundry room was a great thing to have available with sandy beach clothes to wash...

Boogie boards and snorkeling gear along with large cooler type bags made hitting the nearby beach hassle free. The beach is 3/4 block walk from the house with a wonderful gentle swim/snorkel area. Sea turtles on the beach 3 out of 4 mornings. Cool to be that close!

Brenneckes was close and has great food and drinks. Kids loved the shave ice coupon we got with lunch. The surf shop next door provided surfboards and souvenirs. Fruit stand on the way to Lihue was a fun stop with inexpensive local fruit and veggies. The girls loved the coffee from Little Fish coffee and my brother and I really enjoyed our Puka dogs!

We also enjoyed the pool! No one else was using it and it had plenty of shade and chairs.

All in all a great relaxing vacation with all the comforts of home in a tropical setting.

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 Poipu

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. We recently repaired the swimming pool which is a tremendous asset for the property. It is fenced & gated , out of sight & yet set in a secluded tropical setting

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!!!
