About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Just steps from Poipu Beach and Brennecke’s Beach, this is an original plantation-style cottage, lovingly renovated and beautifully appointed. It features a new fully-equipped kitchen with granite counters, new bath plus an outdoor shower, two bedrooms, screened lanai, and landscaped garden. Its high ceilings, giant airy windows, island furnishings and tropical ceiling fans in each room give you the feeling of 'paradise of old.'

The home is in a charming beachfront neighborhood on a quiet street. Stroll to Brennecke’s Beach, famous for its perfect boogie boarding waves, or Poipu Beach, which, with calmer water and beautiful snorkeling, is always rated one of the top ten Hawaii beaches. Everything Poipu has to offer is a beautiful walk away on either the Koloa Heritage Trial or the Poipu Kai Greenbelt. This is includes restaurants, shopping, adventure outfitters, tennis courts, playground, and, of course, those beautiful beaches. Two great golf courses are just a mile’s drive.


Awake to the sounds of palm fronds and waves, and enjoy coffee on the screened lanai.

Grab your snorkel and walk to Poipu Beach to enjoy the morning fish in the warm calm waters.

Play a round of golf or join in a tennis clinic at one of the beautiful facilities near the cottage. Then sit down for a patio lunch at Joe’s on the Green.

Walk to Nukomoi’s to rent stand-up paddleboards and try this new favorite sport. Or take boogie boards from the cottage to try the waves at Brennecke’s.

Crawl onto a chaise in the garden for a few pages of your book and a nap.

Prepare a tropical salad in the fully-equipped gourment kitchen, grill fish from the Koloa Fish Market under the pergola, and relax on the garden patio with wine from The Wine Shop in Koloa.

The sleep peacefully in your Tommy Bahama king bed with luxurious sheets, while dreaming of the next day's adventures.

Poipu Beach and Brenecke's Beach

Poipu Beach Cottage is located right in the heart of Poipu, yet on a quiet residential street. 100 steps out the door is Brennecke's beach, famous for its perfect boogie boarding waves, and if you are looking for calmer water and beautiful snorkeling, just walk next door to Poipu Beach Park, always on the 'top ten' list of Hawaiian beaches. Full of hustle and bustle during the day, the beaches at night become a stunning quiet oasis – great for a moonlit walk, or a picnic dinner by the water.

Poipu Beach Cottage is around the corner from the Poipu Kai greenbelt walking path. This path is beautiful lighted walkway connecting everything in the area - so within a ten minute stroll you can get to the Hyatt Regency and Shipwreck beach, the Sheraton, Marriot Waiohai, Kiahuna Plantation, Ko Kea Resort ( the old Poipu Beach Hotel), Poipu Kai, Poipu Shopping Village, not to mention dozens of restaurants. Tennis is available within a five minute walk at beautiful courts of Poipu Kai and Kiahuna. The Kiahuna Golf Course and Grand Hyatt Coarse are both about a 5 minute drive away. Don't forget to check out the National Tropical Botanical Garden, and on your way there stop by Spouting Horn for the gorgeous views and the best prices on Hawaiian jewelry and trinkets.

If you like farmers markets there are two GREAT ones during the week - first is the Koloa Sunshine market every Monday at noon, located at the Koloa ball park, and all the produce is grown here on Kauai. The 2nd is the Culinary Market on Wednesdays, 4:00 pm, at the Shops at Kukuiula, There is always live music, cooking demonstrations, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, as well as prepared food vendors. - make sure you buy a slice of pie from 'The Right Slice'! This is the 'happening' place on Wednesdays for locals and tourists alike. From Kukuiula Harbor, you can catch a trip to one of the more than 20 dive sites right off our south coast, or take it slower with a sunset or whale watching trip. Take it even more easy and schedule yourself a day at one of the several spas (Hyatt has my favorite!) in the area. Again, the cottage is in a great location - right next to the Koloa Heritage Trail, which you can follow with an interpretive map and learn the history of the Koloa and Poipu area.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Pam (originally from Ohio) and Mike (from California) live in Montana, and have two teenage boys. We love to travel, but we most enjoy settling into a spot and into its culture, instead of hopping from hotel to hotel. We visit my sister on Kauai regularly, and twelve years ago, we purchased and remodeled an original plantation cottage in Kekaha on the West Side (VRBO 52315). When a friend told us that it was time to sell her beautiful Poipu plantation cottage, we couldn't resist. Now we split our Hawaii time between Poipu and Kekaha.

Why the Owner Chose Poipu, Koloa, HI, USA:
We love the true Hawaiian feel of this wonderful cottage and it's in a perfect location to enjoy all Poipu has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact that this is a warm, comfortable home, without the commercial feel of hotels and condos. We love the great outdoor space at the cottage.....a sun porch for dining as well as a trellis-covered patio, because after all, why do you visit Hawaii if not to be outdoors?
