Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath of Romance & Adventure at Ocean End of an 7.6 acre family farm

'Twin Hearts' a Kauai North Shore vacation rental homestay cottage is a wonderful private one bedroom, one bath handcrafted rental accommodation on our 7.6 acre Kauai North Shore estate and farm parcel. The handcrafted cottage features tons of privacy and a sweet hot tub, as well as close beach proximity, a scenic walk away.

Our guests, many of them repeat visitors, adore it!

This private cottage is an exquisite, architecturally interesting, sustainable redwood home with lots of special features and privacy, about 250 feet (and lots of hedges and trees) from our home.

The cottage is accessed via a completely private 250 foot long rolled gravel driveway from the paved cul-de-sac road.

The cottage is comfortably and tastefully furnished, island style, with a hand-carved king sized poster bed with soft cotton sheets in the bedroom, a lovely living room with comfortable new queen sofa bed, a tiled bathroom, and a full-on entertainment center with satellite TV, DVD, and CD stereo. Furniture and furnishings are oriental and island-style, with some antiques and original art.

For those who enjoy using the internet, we offer high speed WI-FI.

As a special perk, the cottage now comes with a Tandem Kayak, complete with paddles, backrests, life preservers and car roof rack, perfect for jungle river adventures on Kauai's numerous waterways. That's WAY fun and easy, even if you have never kayaked before!

There are laundry facilities and a full indoor bathroom, as well as a hot and cold outdoor shower for washing the sand off when returning from Kahili-Quarry beach, which is just down the road, or any other one of the 10 world class beaches nearby.

Consistent trade breezes keep you cool and refreshed although, to be on the safe side, we have installed a decorative tropical ceiling fan in the bedroom.

There are a myriad of world class beaches close nearby. Kahili Quarry Beach is within walking distance, or you may zip down with your rental car. Kalihiwai Beach and the trailhead to Secret Beach are just 6-7 minutes away. Also nearby are Anini Beach, Hideaways, Waiakalua (wanna be all alone on a tropical beach?) and the scenic Kilauea Lighthouse.

When looking at a map of Kauai, use the Kilauea Lighthouse as a locator- it is the northernmost point on the island, and your cottage is about 1.5 miles to the southeast. The location is convenient- close to restaurants, bakeries, 2 farmer's markets each week, and fun shopping. It is an easy drive further west to Princeville (10 minutes) or Hanalei (15 minutes) yet not far the other direction to the East and South sides and to Waimea Canyon on the West side.

Twin Hearts is a legal, permitted "homestay", Class IV Zoning Permit Z-IV-2015-35, Use Permit U-2015-34, Special Permit SP-2015-12. These permits are extremely limited.

So let's see... ocean views, mountain views, private hot tub, acreage privacy, close beach proximity, laundry facility, wireless high-speed internet access, a tandem kayak, and a stunning, affordable handcrafted cottage. Plus, it is LEGAL! It doesn't get better than this. Come to Kauai and enjoy it in class at our private cottage!

Beautiful property, just gorgeous. Quiet, peaceful, with tons of exotic birds.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was everything we had hoped for. We have used this site many many times, and have found it can be hit or miss. This rental, and our experience there, was one of the best to date. As a chef, I was delighted at with all the spices, condiments, and whatnot that were available, and cooked at the cottage nearly every night, and loved it. There are actually sharp knives! The owners are quite accomodating, and seem like real sweet folks. We look forward to our next visit.

Owner's Response: While most of our guests express similar sentiments to us regarding their stay at Twin Hearts, only a handful take the time to write a review. Many thanks to Brandon for doing so. The Russells are always welcome to return for another visit to Kauai, and to Twin Hearts cottage. Mahalo nui loa, e komo mai, a hui ho!

great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Not sure why they haven't posted pictures of the kitchen as it was perfect. Everything we needed, two burner hot plate, large toaster oven, coffee maker, etc. Also a nice clean BBQ. Nice to have a hot tub, and the outdoor shower was fantastic. Beautiful walk down to the local beach. Basic supplies could use a refresh. Not much provided in staples (old s & p, tiny amt. old oils), 10 paper napkins, 1.5 roll tp, but adequate towels, dish cloths, foil, baggies and paper towels. Make sure you enjoy the fresh fruit provided on check in. Delicious!

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 50th birthdays in this wonderful cottage. If you'd like a secluded, rustic cottage, but with all the modern amenities, on the north shore, this is a great choice. The cottage is as pictured, except the new hot tub is behind the house, and the deck has a table and chairs on it. We spent a lot of time on the deck, which is guarded by a feisty, friendly cat and lots of geckos. Everything is modern and in great working order. Cottage cools down nicely at night. The hot tub under the stars with a great outdoor shower was wonderful. Location is just a short distance off the main highway near Kilauea and very close to a beach. You can hear the surf at night. Shrubs and trees surround the yard, so that you are visually secluded from the owners on one side and neighbors on the other. In Kilauea we tried Palate Wine Bar & Restaurant and Kiauea Fish Market, both excellent. Good restaurants in all the towns on the island. Owners were very responsive to email and texts. We had one minor appliance breakdown that they fixed the same day. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Great Space, Great People, Beautiful Island!

  • 5 of 5

Bruce and Cyndee's Twin Heart's guest house is lovely and private on a secluded corner of their 7-acre farm. The bed was comfortable, the hot tub was a treat and the location was very convenient to amazing beaches. We can't wait to come back!

We loved our stay at Twin Heart cottage. It was everything and more. From the garden view to the hot tub, from the soft bed, to the stream access with supplied kayaks, everything was perfect!

About Bruce Fehring

We are Bruce and Cyndee Fehring, owners of the 7.6 acre property on which Twin Hearts cottage is located. We moved to Kauai from the Northeast 30 years ago, and have raised our family and created a wonderful life here. We designed and built Twin Hearts in 2005. We welcome guests to come and enjoy this slice of Paradise.

Bruce Fehring purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Bruce Fehring chose Kilauea

We chose this property because of it's perfect location, central to the North Shore, but not so far north as to not be within easy striking distance of the entire island. Up and out of the tsunami zone, we enjoy the weather here. Lovely ocean beaches, enough rain to keep everything green and facilitate the occasional stunning rainbow, but not so much rain as to be problematic. PLUS, we can walk to beautiful, remote, uncrowded Kahili-Quarry Beach!

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy, privacy, privacy...not to mention the interesting and unique architecture and fantastic new hot tub. Also, we reside nearby and are here in case some special need arises.
