Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Koloa - Turtle Cove Cottage

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

Turtle Cove Cottage is located on the sunny south shore of Kauai, 60 feet from the ocean with views from the kitchen, living room and deck. The beach is just across the street! We are so happy to tell you about our cottage. We recently expanded the front lanai AND redecorated the entire inside adding our favorite island décor and art. All new King beds and high count linens will allow for peaceful nights in total comfort. In fact our redo is so new, we haven't uploaded the new photos, but coming in mid May. All the landscaping has been updated and is so tropical and inviting. If your vacation plans are after July, the remodel continues. In July was are planning to expand the kitchen area and open up the dining area to an new outdoor side deck for your expanded outdoor living and dining experience. The deck will be situated to look directly at the ocean view from the deck. We are also adding an outside Bamboo Shower for those "rinse offs" after a day at the beach. Jeff & I hope all improvements that you will enjoy.

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 several 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.

This classic cottage was built in 1993 to resemble a traditional Hawawiian plantation style cottage. It's a very comfortable place to spend time either inside or out. We have just expanded the front lanai to take advantage of more ocean and cove views and fantastic tropical breezes.( new photos coming in mid May)The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet with beaches just a short walk in either direction. 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.

Jeff & I are so excited to announce that we are now able to offer a "Stay Membership" to the fabulous private club just up the street. For an additional fee of $100 per stay ALL of your party can experience membership in this club. It offers a beach pool with slide, tennis courts, yoga classes and full work out building. Don't forget to take a look at the beach restaurant/bar with BBQ's over looking the pool and tennis. This is a rare opportunity that we are so happy to offer our guests. Go to www.poipuclub.com for full description. You'll love this benefit!!!

There are several shopping centers in the area, a variety of restaurants and several top quality golf courses.

About Bev Burroughs and Jeff Jakus

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. I my passion is to remodel and redecorate homes. I can't wait to add my touch to Turtle Cove Cottage. We will be redecorating with all new furniture, linens, bedding, artwork and expanding the Lanai and living areas. We hope you love the bright colors and the Beach feel. Watch for the new photos early May. Jeff is from California and retired from the Software business with his last venture of developing software for Wine Clubs. Now you can imagine what one of our hobbies is. Jeff has now consults with a small company in San Diego that makes furniture from wine barrels AND has developed a wine barrel quick smoker. Again, it seems we have been fortunate to do what we love. And we love Kauai. Please come and visit our Aloha island. Create a your lifetime memory, Mahalo, Bev & J

Bev Burroughs and Jeff Jakus purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Bev Burroughs and Jeff Jakus chose Koloa

We love all that Poipu offers. While visiting our son and his family while they were staying at the 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.

What makes this cottage unique

Watching the sunsets, playing ukulele with friends across from Beach House Restaurant, walking to PK's 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 sunset, 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 night.......it goes on and on!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our fist trip as a new couple and it could not have been better..... A small romantic cottage....Massages in our home......Romantic dinners.....Laying out on the porch each morning for breakfast.... it was everything we wanted and needed. Thank you for a trip we will always remember.

Wonderful Vacation Cottage by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Turtle Cove cottage is a delightful home in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood. It is fresh, clean, updated and tastefully decorated. As soon as we walked in we felt right at home. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance, as well as two beaches. We loved eating outside on the wraparound porch and the lounge chairs were a great spot to relax. The fans keep the cottage cool, and there are modern air conditioning units for use as well. The kitchen is very well equipped and even doing dishes is enjoyable when you can look out at the ocean through the kitchen window. (There is a dishwasher, too!) We would definitely recommend this property, and are looking forward to coming back next year!

Kauai Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Turtle Cove Cottage-it was a very clean, comfortable, nicely decorated 2 bedroom place w a fully equipped kitchen and a great porch along the front & side of the house! The cottage has everything you need, including chairs and towels for the beach. It's in a great location w several grocery stores close by, beaches, restaurants etc and the office can help w any issues that come up. We can't wait to return to Kauai and will definitely stay @ Turtle Cove Cottage again-we loved it! PS The Frommer's travel books in the cottage were a great help in deciding how to explore all of Kauai!!

Spotless and Beautiful Vacation Home in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

This little vacation cottage is absolutely wonderful. Everything about it is positive. It is a perfect place to relax and see the sights of Kauai. It is clean, cozy, comfortable, modern and nicely located for a south shore respite.

The kitchen has brand new appliances. The furniture is all in great condition. The linens are plentiful and clean. Even the artwork on the walls is tastefully done, with color matching matting and tropical frames. You can tell this home is loved by its owners and not just a place for people to rent in a resort. If I could sum it up in a phrase: All the class of a nice hotel and all the convenience of a well-appointed home.

The location is a short walk to the lawn of The Beach House restaurant, where sunset viewing is a very popular evening activity. The house has peak-a-boo views of the ocean from the kitchen and lanai. It is south facing so take that walk to Beach House for the full sunset experience. An entrance to Baby Beach is just a few houses down the street to the east. The cottage is on a street with several multimillion dollar homes. You can trust the photos on this listing, they are accurate - maybe the sky isn't quite that blue, but the interior is really bright and airy. The only drawback to the private, quiet location is that you will likely need to drive to dining or shopping. That's true for much of Kauai in any case. It is spread out and requires a car. Make your mai tais and pupus at home and problem solved.

I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone looking for Poipu and 2 bedrooms. It lacks nothing. I wish I could stay here for weeks and weeks!

I've posted this review on HomeAway as well, though I found the property here on VRBO. I think they are the same.

Wonderful Cottage with easy access to kid friendly beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Turtle Cove Cottage for 6 nights in July. The best part of our stay was the proximity of the cottage of Baby Beach. With two young children, the beach was perfect, especially in the mornings when the tide was lower, for our kids to play in the ocean without us having to worry about the tide. The beach has very small waves, and two little pools with no waves at all. Our second favorite part of the cottage was the wrap around porch, where we enjoyed many meals (and afternoon reading/naps) with the nice ocean view (partially obstructed by the house across the street, but still very enjoyable).

The owner, Alan, was extremely helpful with the booking process and filling us in on details of things to see and do around the island. The cottage was recently remodeled with a modern kitchen and bathroom that really made our stay comfortable. The A/C in both bedrooms and the living room was also extremely helpful with two small children who need to take naps during the day. The cottage has all sort of gear (high chair, portable crib, beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment) that we took full advantage of. The Wi-Fi worked fine for us.

Only request, would have been for a king bed in one of the bedrooms, but we made due with the queen.

All in all, a wonderful place to stay in the south shore. Close to lots of beaches, food options, and definitely more sun than the north shore.

Lovely Cottage by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Turtle Cove Cottage for 2 weeks beginning April 1, 2013. The house was spotless upon our arrival and there were fresh tropical flowers on the dining table. The house was perfect for my 90 year old mother and me as she uses a 4-wheel walker and there is a ramp into the house and a step in shower. The house was very comfortable and the neighborhood was very quiet with just the occasional rooster crowing, but it did not disturb our sleep. This was an excellent location with two ocean views from the lanai. The only drawback was that the internet connection was by modem rather than Wi-Fi, but that wasn't a major concern - just wished I had my laptop rather than my tablet. The listing description was accurate and the rental agency was easy to work with. A check for the refundable deposit was waiting for us when we arrived home. We would stay here again and would also recommend this rental to our friends.
