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.

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. 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!!!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire house (two duplexes with 2 beds and 1 bath each) and everyone loved it. The location is great and is easily walk-able to a few beaches, food and activities. The property is large and having a pool onsite was a very nice plus.

Poipu Gem

  • 5 of 5

We were two families plus Grandma, and the cottages worked out perfectly for us. Really enjoyed the traditional Hawaii furnishings, coupled with the beautifully updated baths and kitchens. The adjoining lanai, overlooking a lushly flowered and fruited garden, provided a great gathering place. Our youngsters loved having fresh mangos for breakfast!! It was great to relax by the pool, and having the beach such a short walk away was an added bonus. All in all, the cottages were a great alternative to a busy and crowded hotel. Wouldn't hesitate to book again. Thanks so much, Lance!

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

The property offered the peace and tranquility of your own personal space in a tropical paradise. Just steps from the best beaches. If you're traveling with wee ones, there's a baby beach with shallow calm water with tiny fishes. Overall we had the most relaxing and enjoyable stay. Lance, the owner and Dorthy, the manager were both very responsive and cooperative!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our recent stay at Poipu Beach Plantation Cottages. This property was chosen for the layout of two cottages, side-by-side, joined by a long, wide lanai, overlooking a spacious garden. This gave our large group the option of some privacy when desired and a roomy area for get-togethers. The new pool was enjoyed by all and a nice alternative to the sandy beaches. Much thought was put into the décor and we found both cottages to be well-stocked and comfortable. Lance, the personable owner, was very responsive as was his lovely housekeeper. One couldn't wish for a better location with proximity to Poipu Beach, shopping and restaurants. Perfection!

The convenience of being close to the beach is amazing

  • 4 of 5

The convenience of being close to the beach is amazing & perfect for a few families because there are two separate units but very close to each other. A few hundred feet from the point poop beach which is ideal for young children. The only negative which is why I'm giving it four stars, is the rugs in the kitchen were dirty and slippery. Otherwise, excellent communication with the owner and house cleaner And would recommend to anyone who wants to stay at the Poipu Beach area!
