About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Large Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Turtle Cove Cottage is located on the sunny south shore of Kauai, 50 feet from the ocean with views from the kitchen, living room and Front and Side Lanai. The beach is just across the street! We are so happy to tell you about our cottage. We recently expanded the front Lanai and added a 2nd side Lanai. All with ocean views. The entire interior has been remodeled opening up the kitchen and adding granite countertops. We now have unobstructed views from the Kitchen to the ocean as well. This open concept is great for entertaining and just enjoying the Cottage. We have added our favorite island décor and art. All new King beds with high count resort linens for peaceful nights in total comfort. The sheets are "pressed" for your arrival! With the Hawaiian outdoor shower, we expanded the landscaping for a all new Tropical Paradise feel. Inside,we put in a sliding glass door that leads from the dining area to an new outdoor side lanai for additional outdoor living and dining experience. Enjoy your favorite beverage on our deck table and Chairs while BBQing on one of 2 BBQ's ( One is a charcoal Weber and one is a Natural Gas BBQ for all you cooks.)This lanai looks directly at the ocean with soft lighting and gorgeous star gazing. The Hawaiian Style Bamboo Shower for those "rinse offs" after a day at the beach. AND don't forget the AIR CONDITIONING! We are one of the only homes on the street that has new updated/ modern ductless AC in all rooms. Turtle Cove will stand out for your vacation plans with everything we have to offer.

The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet with beaches just a short walk in either direction. This romantic cottage is located at Ho’ai Bay, with some of the best swimming and snorkeling in Poipu and on the island. (Lawai beach and Whaler’s cove ). Baby Beach and cove is across the street with 4 beach accesses to enjoy this serene and relaxing beach. Just take your favorite beverage and your beach chair and enjoy. For the younger at heart there is the famous PK’s for surfing about 1 block away.

This classic cottage was built in 1993 to resemble a traditional Hawaiian plantation style cottage. We completed a our remodel this July with an expanded the front lanai to take advantage of more ocean and cove views and fantastic tropical breezes. We also added a side deck off the dining room that looks directly at the ocean. Enjoy the added outside Bamboo shower after a day at the beach.The neighborhood is friendly yet quiet and your walk or stroll is along a small neighborhood lane. Listen to the sound of the surf and relax with a meal, a drink or just a good book. A number of past guests have been on their honeymoon and given us great reviews. On a hot day you can take a break inside with top quality air conditioning. No big resort scene - just relax.

Since buying this wonderful Cottage in 2015, Jeff & I have stayed during and after our remodel. We have gotten to know the neighbors, offered wine to some of the guests arriving at other houses and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our New Island Paradise! Come join us and start making your own "Paradise Memories"

There are several shopping centers in the area, a variety of restaurants and several top quality golf courses. They even have twilight rates. All within walking distance.

Turtle Cove Cottage offers the most amazing experiences that The Garden Island of Kauai has to offer, including sunset and ocean views from your very own wrap around lanai, fabulous walking paths to Spouting Horn, The Beach House Restaurant (can't beat the sunset and happy hour opportunity here, just a block away) Watch the surfers at PK's ( the world class surfing location) then come back to the Cottage to enjoy relaxing at Baby Beach just across the street. Baby Beach has an amazing horseshoe sand beach that is protected by reefs creating a shallow water swimming area. Good for snorkeling, laying on a raft or enjoying the occasionally napping turtle.

What I really like about our location is just that "our location." We are on a small road that is off of Lawai Rd that is void of local traffic except for those living on our little street. Our lane curves to the ocean and is only about 2 blocks long. It's safe and very friendly. Just yesterday a traveler staying across the street came and borrowed a cake pan for a Birthday celebration. Yes, that really still happens!

During the cooler nights, you will find people strolling our street, just enjoying the peace and quiet. The birds that will sing you to sleep as you lounge on our new Lanai with 2 comfy lounge chairs and our conversation area with 4 over sized chairs. The 2nd Lanai offers a shaded eating area and the Weber: BBQ for those that like to cook.

During the day, try your skills at locally acclaimed surfing spots, Acid Drop or PK's directly in front of Turtle Cove Cottage and the Beach House Restaurant. Some of the best snorkeling/diving is less than 50 yards from our front door where rumor has it that you can easily score a lobster when your are properly licensed and the season is right.

Turtle Cove Cottage is one of the only ductless air conditioned homes (not window units - real air conditioning) in this neighborhood and we have just completed our total renovation as of July 2015.The front wrap around lanai has been expanded by almost 50%, the entire cottage has been painted inside and out, all the furniture and artwork has been replaced with brand new high quality pieces that are inspired by the "Island Feel" that we all love. The floor plan is now very open as we have removed walls and added more countertop areas. Colorful area rugs complete the decor.Upon arrival you will be sleeping in luxury in our new King beds that offer "ironed 500 count bedding with designer spreads and colorful pillows. The views from each bedroom is full of tropical plants that sway in the Tradewind breezes. Relax and enjoy the AC in each bedroom as well. EACH bedroom includes a new all mounted 32" internet enabled Flat Screen TV with over 100 channels, including Pandora and Netflix.

The living room includes a new internet, complete digital system with cable box. All connected to a new wall mounted 50" flat screen television with Time Warner Digital Cable, Netflix, Pandora.

The entire cottage and outdoor lanai areas are serviced by wireless high speed internet communication and easy for Skyping as well. We also offer a printer/scanner for those office chores and a full land line for emergency communications.

We love our new Turtle Cove Cottage and want to you enjoy your time on Kauai. We have put some beach chairs, boogie boards, some snorkeling equipment and coolers for your use located in the Rubbermaid shed behind the house. Please just hose them off at our New Hawaiian style outdoor shower after use, so the next guests can enjoy them.

Did I mention our Hawaiian Style Outdoor shower? Perfect for those days at the beach or a long stroll. Full hot/cold water shower to get that sand off and feel refreshed.

We stay at Turtle Cove Cottage and try to make it our "dream vacation" for us too. Seems like we add something new each time we come. Enjoy our house as your own and come back often.

It's all about living Aloha and making Memories.

Year Purchased: 2015

About: Jeff and I (Bev) currently live in Coronado, Ca and Kauai. We are avid boaters and belong to the Coronado Yacht Club AND the Nawiliwili Yacht Club in Kauai. We recently went from racing sailboats to cruising power boats. We are active and love meeting new friends and enjoying our hobbies. (wine tasting, walking, cruising and our kids and grandkids) Jeff brought me to Kauai for our Honeymoon and I fell in love. After visiting all the islands over the years, I just couldn't believe how original and natural Kauai was. I love the Aloha Spirit which is such a part of LIFE in Kauai. We also have our home in the Wailua Homestead area near Kapaa that is located on the Wailua River and a waterfall. We bought our Turtle Cove Cottage after seeing it once! I couldn't believe that we found this secluded road so near the ocean and all the activities while remaining "so original". I am originally from Ohio and lived in New Mexico, Texas, Arizona and California. After graduating from SMU in Dallas I immediately moved to Phoenix to begin my financial career. I have spent my career in all things related to Real Estate including financing, building, selling and buying. My passion is to remodel and redecorate homes. Jeff is from California and retired from the Software business, his last venture was developing software for Wine Clubs. Now you know one of our other hobbies! Jeff now consults with a small company in San Diego that makes furniture from wine barrels AND has developed a wine barrel BBQ smoker that cooks food perfectly. We just finished our total remodel of Turtle Cove Cottage creating an "Island Paradise". We knocked down walls for more open living and ocean views. All new furniture, resort linens, local artwork and expanded the 2 Lanai. We hope you love the bright Beachy feel. We have been fortunate to do what we love. We love coming to our Turtle Cove Cottage. Make it your home too, visit our Aloha island and create your lifetime memory, Mahalo, Bev & Jeff

Why Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
We love all that Poipu offers. While visiting with our son and his family when they were staying at the Poipu Marriott, we drove up Hoona Rd and fell in LOVE. Turtle Cove Cottage was for sale and we got to see it 1 day before we were leaving. Having only spent 1 hour at the house, we got home and decided we had to have it. It was perfect! The street was so friendly with travelers walking with their drinks to the many beach accesses across the street to the cozy cottage feel of Turtle Cove. We can sit on our lanai and see the ocean, the beach and the snorkeling cove. We can take a walk to the park, The Beach House restaurant where every night people gather at their beach and watch the gorgeous sunsets. We hear the ocean and the many birds singing. Hoona Road is so close to everything yet, so secluded and private. As I said, It's perfect for perfect vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Watching the sunsets, playing ukulele with friends across from The Beach House Restaurant, walking to PK's or Acid Drop to surf, Lawai Beach to swim and snorkel, Ho 'ai bay swimming with the turtles, walking through or relaxing at Prince Kuhio Park, lounging around reading a good book on Baby Beach, long walks to the harbor in the morning, oatmeal with fresh papaya & mangos, watching amazing breathtaking sunsets, eating fresh-cooked shrimp from the Mobile Shrimp Lady, eating dinner at Keoki's from their bar menu, walking to the Sheraton on a full moon night for dinner, star gazing at goes on and on!
