PRIVATE BEACH COTTAGE ON ACREAGE W/ VIEWS, HOTTUB, TANDEM KAYAK, WIFI, & PRIVACY

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Kilauea - Twin Hearts

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage, walk to beach, best for two guests, can sleep three.

Twin Hearts is a wonderful private new one bedroom, one bath handcrafted rental honeymoon cottage on our 7.5 acre Kauai North Shore estate and farm parcel. The handcrafted cottage has lovely views and a toasty hot tub, as well as close beach proximity.

Our guests rave about it!

Additional photos are available via e-mail upon request.

Twin Hearts is an exquisite, architecturally interesting, sustainable redwood home with lots of special features and privacy, about 200 yards (and lots of hedges and trees) from our house.

Twin Hearts is accessed via a completely private 200 foot long rolled gravel driveway from the paved cul-de-sac road.

The cottage is comfortably and tastefully furnished, island style, with a handcarved king sized poster bed with soft cotton sheets in the bedroom, 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!

For those interested in preparing meals, there is a fully equipped tiled kitchen with range, convection oven, microwave, and full size refrigerator. For convenience sake, we have installed a washer and dryer, 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 normally keep you cool and refreshed although, to be on the safe side, we have installed a decorative tropical ceiling fan in the bedroom, and another in the living area.

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, where you can begin a free, guided, pre-arranged tour of the Crater Hill National Wildlife Refuge. Ask us how to sign up!

When looking at a map of Kauai, use the Kilauea Lighthouse as a locator- it is the northernmost point on the island, and the 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.

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

BETTER THAN PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
Though we'd like to keep it a secret, everyone should get the chance to stay at Twin Hearts. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the owner bearing gifts in the form of aloha spirit and the best organic pineapple you've ever tasted from his garden. The cottage is so lovely you almost don't want to leave the first few days after a long trip. Situated on a quiet road and secluded by the lush, tropical plants and flowers, it has everything you need and more: a private lanai with hot tub, grill and dining space with views of both the ocean and the mountains, outdoor shower, washer/dryer, comfy king bed (plus good bedding!), modern and fully equipped kitchen, cozy living room with big pane windows for daydreaming and novel-reading. The cottage is very clean and well-maintained by the owners. When you DO decide to leave the cottage, the North Shore of Kauai evokes a feeling of straight-up laid back worry-free existence, and it's our preference to other parts of the island. Within walking distance is Kahili or Rock Quarry beach where you can watch local surfers or frolic at the mouth of the Kilauea River. The adventure highlights for us include kayaking the Na Pali Coast (but avoid the arrogant guides employed by Outfitters on the South Shore), floating in Queen's Pond, snorkeling at Hideaways Beach, and eating lots of shave ice with ice cream in Hanalei - truly a cultural adventure. We're also big fans of the local farmers markets and fish markets (the ahi is phenomenal) dotted along the main highway. They're way cheaper, fresher and tastier than shopping at the Safeway in Kapaa or Foodland in Princeville where prices are obscene and the quality terrible. For packaged goods, swallow your pride and stop at the Wal-Mart in Lihue or Long's Pharmacy in Kapaa. They offer the same product as Safeway for a fraction of the cost.

If we could change one thing about our stay at Twin Hearts, it's that next time we'll stay for AT LEAST two weeks instead of one.

Aloha and Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Wow! We know that most all of our guests adore Twin Hearts, but not all go out of their way to write a sweet and glowing report like Kristin and Matthew have.

There is no need to keep Twin Hearts a secret...just book far enough in advance to assure availability...

Yes, we do try to make everyone feel at home in the most unobtrusive manner we can, which is easy to do on our 7.5 well-tended acres. Our gardens and orchards are growing, and we love when our guests find greens and fruits and even a few eggs to take back to the cottage to enjoy.

If Twin Hearts sounds like the kind of place you would enjoy and if you can relate to what Kristin and Matthew have to say about the cottage and about Kauai, call or e-mail for a booking today!

Aloha, Bruce and Cyndee

NOT COMPLETELY AS ADVERTISED

  • 3 out of 5
Cottage was nicely decorated and comfortable. The windows allowed for an expansive view of the yard. The proximity to Rock Quarry Beach and the river was a plus. Enjoyed the visits from Curly the cat and the Fehring's dogs. We were disappointed in the Hot Tub, which was one of the main reasons we chose Twin Hearts. It needs to be replaced and a new one relocated in the yard on a cement slab - or removed and not have one. Either way it would be a plus to have more room on the deck to enjoy the outside. The views are of the mountains and not of the ocean from this rental but there is one from the 2-bedroom located further down the road

Owner's Response: A warm mahalo to Dick and Kathy for taking the time to provide a review of their stay at Twin Hearts.

Upon reading this review, we strolled over to the cottage and did see that vegetation has grown up into most of the distant ocean view, and so we will trimming back to open that up again. Other than that, we are not sure how Twin Hearts is "not completely as advertised" , as all other information is accurate. The hot tub (not a spa) is clean and toasty at 102 degrees, not inexpensive to operate at the nation's highest utility rates, but attractive enough to utilize about 1/3 of the deck space for those who enjoy a soak. There is, of course, a table and two chairs, as well as a gas barbeque on the rest of the deck, and a hammock and deck chairs in the yard which can be pulled under the shade of the royal poinciana tree for those who are sun-sensitive.

We are a bit disappointed that this particular couple, who told us that they normally stayed at an exclusive and much more expensive cottage on Maui, chose to award us just 3 stars, but that reinforces the axiom that, despite best efforts, one cannot completely please everyone all the time. Of course, the vast majority of our guests award us 5 stars and, while here, trying to figure out how they could live permanently in such a beautiful accommodation on such an amazing property on such a fantastic island.

It was nice that Dick and Kathy mentioned our other rental property, Hale Kai Kalani, which is just down the street, even closer to the ocean, and does have a fantastic ocean, mountain, river, and valley view. That home can be viewed on VRBO as property 538.

Come to Kauai and enjoy the aloha...

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 4 out of 5
Twin Hearts & the North Shore was exactly what my husband and I needed. A small cozy place surrounded by lush vegetation. Twin Hearts was airy, light, clean and perfect for disconnecting from the hectic life. The house was stocked with all the essentials, and some helpful extras - coffee filters, olive oil, beach chairs, etc.... and some awesome outdoor cats:)

Owner's Response: We are so glad that Kristine and Kent came to stay at Twin Hearts and found the cottage to be perfect getaway. They did not mention the hot tub, tandem kayak, and boogie boards in their review...we're hoping they had a chance to try all three! From the sounds of it, they may not have taken advantage of the WiFi either, but at least it was there if they did feel the need to connect.

Thanks for the stars!

Much aloha.

GOING THE EXTRA MILE

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I booked a 15 night stay at Twin Hearts for the 2011 Holidays. We secured the peak time by booking in May. This was going to be the first trip together with our little son and our second visit to the beautiful island of Kauai. Shortly before our planned departure we learned that my wife was expecting! We would have pursued the itinerary, but the OBGYN instructed her to avoid any air travel due to pregnancy related risks. We promptly informed Bruce, the owner of Twin Hearts. With just 12 days left until our planned arrival date finding last minute bookings was challenging. But Bruce was great! He utilized the whole arsenal of modern communication to promote the opportunity - from Craig's List to email blasts. With quite some success. Eight of the 15 nights were re-booked and our refund was quickly processed. We will certainly be visiting Kauai again one day not just to stay at wonderful Twin Hearts (or its larger sister property Hale Kai Kalani...), but to meet Bruce in person who did such a wonderful job for us. We also encourage all visitors of Twin Hearts to purchase travel insurance against unforeseen events, which Bruce generally recommends at the beginning of each rental. Tom P., New York

WONDERFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our stay at Twin Hearts and would recommend it to anyone who loves peace and quiet, privacy, gorgeous surroundings and convenient location. The bed was very comfortable, the owner Bruce was very knowledgeable and helpful with ideas of things to do and places to eat. The cottage was really clean and beautiful inside and out. My husband ran to the beach and back every day ( it less than a mile away, with some downhill). It is near a beautiful garden open to the public (must make tour reservations). The owners' cat and dog came to visit us occasionally, but other than that and the frog, shooting star, and rainbows, we felt completely secluded. Wonderful, romantic spot!
