Secret Cove Cottage...on a Spectacular Beach!

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy a Hawaiian vacation the way it was meant to be. This spectacular beachfront cottage has breathtaking, wide-open ocean views. Just steps from the beach, we offer you a slice of heavenly paradise. If you are looking for a romantic and serene setting you have found it! This cottage has its very own private beach and protected swimming areas (calm enough for little children) due to the outer reef that keeps the waters calm throughout the year. These white sand beaches stretch wide in both directions with unbelievable vistas.

Aliomanu Bay is in a 'micro climate zone'- the weather is the same as Poipu and even in the winter months it does not have any more rain than the Poipu area. This cottage is in a 'gem-of-a-location' and you will rarely see anyone on these beaches even in high season. Secret Cove cottage has been rented to celebrities seeking a secluded location on the beach.

As you enter the property through the grand entrance driveway, you will immediately notice lush tropical plants and over 60 coconut trees on this three quarter acre estate. Going out from the front slider doors your feet touch a well manicured lawn that leads to a sandy, short path, right out to the private beach. On the lawn you can sit in lounge chairs that have a very wide-angle direct view of the ocean and sweeping coastline.

As you sit on the lanai of the cottage you can listen to the soothing sound of a lovely fountain, as well as hear the ocean. Tropical birds and soft breezes from the ocean grace the front porch and cottage. Sit and unwind with a glass of wine and a good book. Inside, the cottage is decorated with well-appointed furnishings that give you the feel of the “real Hawaii”. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, including a dishwasher, trash compactor and a bottled water dispenser with free bottled water.

The living room area is set up for your comfort: you can relax on the comfortable couch or desk area that is setup with Wi-Fi, DVD player, DVD library and a printer. In the main bedroom there is a California king bed. The cottage is air-conditioned throughout for your comfort. There is also a loft area with a queen bed, sitting area and light.

Secret Cove Cottage is unique; this private retreat will have you wanting to come back again and again. From every vantage point you feel serenity and soft breezes. Enjoy leisurely walks along Aliomanu Bay and go snorkeling amidst the coral reefs in the azure-colored waters right outside your door! The morning will welcome you with spectacular sunrises and the sunsets will take your breath away as they melt into the horizon.

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, in a peaceful setting, at an affordable price, this is it! You will not be disappointed. Escape to Secret Cove and we think you will agree that this is where memories are made.

If you are thinking of a family reunion or small wedding, the entire estate (Secret Cove Cottage+ Secret Cove Villa)can be rented together; it is perfect also for an extended family group or children with a nanny.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This was the PERFECT spot! We rented both the Cottage and the Villa right next door and got married in the yard! The owner helped so much with questions and recommendations during the wedding planning process, it was very much appreciated. We fit 50 people, a 12x12 dance floor, 10x10 DJ tent, 20x40 dining tent, buffet, a full bar, plus did the ceremony in the yard since tide was up, and we still had space! The 20x20 catering tent fit in the parking area and we even had fire dancers put on a show!

The cottage was perfect, very well stocked and very clean, and there is a loft (with an air mattress) which would be great for kids! The view is amazing, and it's steps to the beach. Yard is awesome for picnics, playing, games, relaxing, sunbathing, etc. Very secluded and private. The yard also gets a good amount of shade, nice place to enjoy the view without getting fried! I am picky when it comes to vacation stays, and I have no complaints for this rental!

(If you are thinking of planning a wedding here - email me! Not only am I a wedding photographer who would die to come back to shoot a wedding here, but it's the most perfect location!!

Here are my recommendations for weddings

Catering : Contemporary Flavors

Tents : Kauai Tent (Hali actually went to the property and measured things and took photos for me!)

DJ : Kustom Sounds Kauai (Mike Dandurand is amazing! Helped a lot with planning too!)

Photographer : Grace and Jaden (based out of Oregon) is who I used and they're amazing!

or me (based out of Washington) I'll return for your wedding in a heart beat! ;)

Seriously waiting for the next time we can go stay here again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Secret Cove Cottage. It was clean and comfortable and we had everything we needed. The location is amazing! The yard is beautifully maintained and our kids loved the huge grassy lawn. The beach is also lovely and there was wonderful snorkeling right out front. It was easy to get to the North Shore or to take a day trip to Poopy or the Canyon from here and we also enjoyed spending days at the cottage. Such a lovely spot! We would definitely stay here again.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for six days. It was perfect. It's secluded, but just a few minutes away from shops and restaurants. It's also a quick drive to Kapa'a, Princeville, and a number of beaches and hiking trails. The well-stocked kitchen made it easy to cook meals at the cottage. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for our honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

The property was a wonderful alternative to a hotel. We loved the fact that we felt like we had our own little 1 bed, 1 bath oasis with our own little kitchenette and eating area. Perfect for us and in a great spot on the island. It was easy for us to get to all points north and south during our vacation. We would definitely do this again and the only thing we would have changed was to extend our 6 night stay to at least 8 nights. If you want relaxed, intimate, no fuss, laid back style (which fits the island by the way) this cottage is for you.

So much better than staying at a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage, surrounded with palm trees, and a nice lawn leading toward the water. It is well stocked with kitchen utensils, and is very comfortable. I will echo a previous comment about it being best suited for two, as access to the loft is iffy.

The location is excellent, in a quiet neighborhood- except for the crowing of the islands famous roosters. Shopping and great restaurants are minutes away in Kapaa.

Secret Cove Cottage was recommended to us by our son and daughter-in-law, who stayed there a year ago. We now tell all our friends what a great place it is!
