Private parking space in not far away from the cottage.

About Owner/Property Manager

Hello , my name is Iwona Szajer and live on Kauai. I am originally from Poland and my husband is from Germany. We call ourselves 'gypsies' as we live in many beautiful places , and yet Kauai is always home. I arrived on Kauai in 1991 and I have made it a home for the girls. They have gone to schools here and they consider Kauai home.Tatjana , the eldest, lives on Oahu but ultimately wants to be back on Kauai. Ariella is still in school at John Hoppkins and is hoping to one day do good for humankind :-) Daniel , our son has just entered Kindergarten here on the island. We love what Kauai has given us...someone said to us once that moving here has given them an extra 10 years of life...we don't know about that , but what this place has given 'us' is many wonderful memories...we love the life style here...we hope to share some of it with you.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 1995

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Poipu

When I moved for good to Kauai in 1994 I searched for a place that would have a 'blend' of many things. I wanted a great location, a safe place for the girls to be outside, a place where I could enjoy running and hiking. A place that was private and yet where I could meet people. After many visits I found Poipu Crater and it was PERFECT! I truly felt ( and still do ) that this is Poipu's little secret . My friends and neighbors use to say that all the time. So many people in Poipu don't even know that this place exist. Before I bought this cottage, I have lived in few other units and ultimately made the decision to buy the one that I currently own. I made that decision because of the location. My unit is truly in the BEST location. I have the morning sun - I can have my breakfast on the lanai ( it's still not too hot ) and in the afternoon am able to enjoy the outside as well . My unit is perched on top of the Crater and because of its unique location it is comfortable all year round. The morning sun warms it up in the morning , the prevailing trade winds keep it cool all day and I have no or very little mosquito's! It's these small things that one can only find out after truly 'living' in the place and because I had the chance to 'try' other cottages and was lucky to be there at the time when I had choices. I chose this particular one because it is the BEST! I have LIVED there and raised my girls there for 8 years. My husband and I always envisioned ourselves retiring here...but as our family grew we had to find a bigger place. We were lucky that when the adjacent cottage went for sale , we bought it . We still have a long ways to retirement , especially now with our 5 year old, but at least we have the knowledge that one day if not us, the girls will be back in 'their' home.

Currently we live in the house 5min. from the cottage...but our hearts are still there.

Fantastic time in the "Poipu Crater"

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Poipu. The house is fantastic, very clean, beautifully decorated and has all the amenities. The time went by too fast.

My favorite VRBO rental anywhere

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for 5 days before a conference I had at the Hyatt. What a fantastic place to stay. First of all, the cottages are very spread out and the landscaping is so lush that you can forget that you are right in the center of Poipu. The condo itself is clean, beautifully decorated, and stocked with EVERYTHING you might need for vacation. There is no doubt that this is where I would want to stay if we are able to return.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a Hyatt conference. The location was ideal. Beaches were close, dining was close. Although there were only two of us it was suitable for at least 2 more. It provided room and space that we would not have in a room at the Hyatt. We were very pleased with the accomodations and all the perks of a kitchen, the beach chairs, the Boogie boards and the comfortable bed. I would rent this place again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first family trip to Kauai, and I'm so glad we choose this property to stay!

The cottage is beautiful, clean, nicely decorated and had everything we needed and more. We loved waking up to the singing of the tropical birds, having breakfast at the lanai, and watching the beautiful tropical scenario. Even our kids (9 and 5 years old) choose to sit and enjoy the beautiful view at the lanai than be hooked at some kind of electronic device. The property is close enough to walk to Poipu beach, but we choose not to do that, since we brought the cooler, sand toys and body boards with us every time we went to it.

Our trip to Kauai was much more fun than we've anticipated, and staying at Poipu crater just completed that wonderful time. We'll be back for sure! Thank you for sharing this wonderful place!

Great Poipu location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family if four had a wonderful time here in Poipu Crater. The condo was clean and beautifully decorated with local island fair. The kitchen is well equipped for all your needs.(we usually do our own breakfast )

The pool is close by, and quiet, with BBQ's and ping pong. The kids enjoyed the pool several times.

We enjoyed close by activities such as the Spouting Horn, several waterfalls, kayaking, and tubing.

One of the best family vacations!!!

Thank you for letting us share your home!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for being great guests and happy you enjoyed the Cottage. Kathy

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

For our family, this was such a perfect place to stay during our week at Kauai. To us, the cottage felt really homey, with its beautiful and yet playful interior design, and all the necessities you need in a home. The location is great, quiet and beautiful surroundings, a pool, only a short stroll to the beach, and even som restaurants within walking distance. We really appreciated the fact that the owner had some basic supplies available such as laundry soap, shampoo, beach towels, boogie boards, etc. We would definetly recommend this place, we had a great experience!

Close to the ocean and a 8 minute walk to the BEST beaches on the south side of Kauai. Hawaiian cottage is located in the heart of Poipu - walking distance to not only beaches , but also shopping , dinning and spa. Great place to stay if you enjoy hiking , whale watching and running as there beautiful paths from the cottage which go along for miles.
