Welcome to Wailua Riverside Tree Top Cottage! This is a perfect place to experience the real Kauai - in a residential setting at the Wailua River. Wailua Riverside is a tree top cottage, newly redecorated, furnished Hawaiiana style, fully equipped kitchen, master bedroom with queen bed, den with sofa sleeper a full size bed and the covered lanai offering outdoor dining.
'We just returned from five days at Wailua Riverside Hideaway... also known as... Kauai Calls! Set Your Heart Free... It is a delightful four room efficiency on the Wailua river, on the east coast of Kauai. Full kitchen, fantastic elevated covered lanai with enough room for 4 adults to dine. The place was squeeky clean, bright and airy to take advantage of the trades. Quiet, secluded and private, the lovely vacation rental has it's own carport, access to full size washer and dryer, and something you seldom see, a modern efficient air conditioner (but with the trades, you don't need it). You can even watch satelite TV if you just 'can't let it go'. There is a great collection of DVDs and VHS movies... and lots of books. Candace has provided every type of recreation equipment you might need for the beach or the river, including a two place Ocean Kayak, paddles and PFDs, and a small dock to launch right on the tranquil river. Everything is nearby and yet you hear nothing at night but an occasional gecko, rooster, or the soft soothing music of the distant waves in Wailua Bay. Lydgate park is less than five minutes and is the perfect place to introduce the ocean to your children. Calm, protected, warm waters with full lifeguard service, facilities and plenty of parking. A great place to walk or run in the mornings or evenings. Candace is a gracious hostess who allows you to be you. You have a completely private entrance, and yet she is available if you need her. She is the perfect kind of person to host such a place. She knows the island inside and out, real estate, culture, touristy stuff, and the best places to go. She is a transplanted kama aina who loves what she does. What a fantastic find after a couple horror stories on Kauai and other islands. My only concern is that too many other folks will discover this place and it will be hard to schedule. We are going back next year. Period. It is wonderful! Period.'
Located at the Sacred Wailua River, where only the ancient Hawaiian Royalty were allowed to visit, Wailua Riverside is a two minute walk to an awesome eight-mile shoreline of uncrowded, sandy beaches. You are steps from a dock where you can launch your own Kayak onto the Wailua River to explore and hike to Secret Waterfalls, which has a natural swimming hole at its base. Water skiing, Wakeboarding, Speed Boating are also available from the same dock!

I have always known I would have a home on beautiful Kauai and dreamed of hosting guests who come to Kauai to fulfill their own life's dream. My favorite TV show when growing up was 'Fantasy Island' and here I am. Over the past 6 years I have come to realize that all that guests who have stayed at Wailua Riverside Hideaway became family the moment they arrived. It is you the guests who are the true stars in this Fantasy Island called Kauai - I look forward to greeting / meeting you! Mahalo nui loa! Candace, Owner
Owner/Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2002
I literally had a dream about this property! It was finding it that became the first part of an enjoyable personal journey. I look forward to telling you all about it!
Kauai Calls! Wailua Riverside Hideaway on the beautiful island of Kauai!
Mahalo nui loa,
“Thanks for the use of your Hideaway, we had a wonderful time, we got good use of the kayak and had the chance to try SUP. Our kayak trip along the NaPali coast was a highlight, long day but beautiful conditions. Lots of great eating spots and Donkey beach one of our favorite beaches! Thanks again!”
After a long, tiring trip from Wisconsin, we arrived to be welcomed by a charming and warm woman. It made us feel at home - a feeling which persisted the whole 2 weeks we were at her cottage. We went upstairs to find not only fruit and bottled water, but a bottle of really nice French champagne!
We were very pleased with everything - plenty of room to spread out, a fully equipped kitchen, a nice lanai even satellite tv where we could watch the Wisconsin football game at 7am. The location was perfect for us because we could visit the entire island without driving too far in either direction. Also, it was on a nice street with neighbors who were pleasant. Candace always was willing to answer questions and was always helpful.
By the end of our two weeks we realized not only how wonderful the island was, but how much we had in common with our downstairs neighbor! Claude was especially delighted with the two cats - one of which was really friendly and had permission to sleep with us.
We have wonderful memories of the island. A big part was meeting Candace. Thank you so much.
This was our second stay with Candace at the cottage and we are already looking forward to our return. The space is a perfect size for a couple and is lovely and well maintained. Having access to the Wailua River with use of the kayak and paddleboards is an awesome bonus. The central location makes access to both the north shore and the west side of the island a breeze. Most of all though, we appreciate the aloha that Candace brings to the stay. She is so lovely and welcoming with her smile and locally made leis. She is accommodating and helpful. She is one of our favorite treasures on Kauai!
We stayed in the riverside cottage and loved it. Very quaint and cozy. We had all the things we needed to enjoy the island....Candace set us up!
We loved our stay here. The cottage is absolutely adorable with everything that you would possibly need. Our favorite part was the rooftop deck. We ate all of our meals out there. It is conveniently located within walking distance to Lydgate (perfect place to swim with young ones), the Coconut Market Place, Passion Bakery and the Vietnamese BBQ. We felt very centrally located here. Nothing was too far in either direction. The cottage came with a double person kayak so we were able to paddle up to start the Secret Falls hike and check out Fern Grotto. Candace was super helpful and friendly. She knew we were bringing our 7 year old and went out and bought a nice sleeping mattress to accommodate her. Would be tight for a family of more than three. We loved our stay here!
We have visited the riverside cottage several times over the past few years and love, love, love it!
Candace is the most wonderful hostess ever! She greets us upon arrival with a huge smile and a happy hug. The leis she presents us with are made locally by families and are the most beautiful on the island.
The cottage is warm, inviting, and ever so cozy. It is well stocked with lots of necessities and if you need anything, 2 grocery stores are close by. We love having our meals on the deck listening to the waves from nearby Wailua beach. The opportunity to kayak along the Wailua River is a blessing in disguise, you must see the fern grotto & nearby Falls. Candace has a great library of travel books and she has loads of ideas for any adventure seeker.
Need we say more? If you love Hawaii and have never visited Kauai, you MUST book your next trip to the Riverside cottage, you won't be disappointed.
This was our second year staying in the Wailua river cottage. The property is well-maintained, and Candace (the owner) provides such great amenities! This year we enjoyed the private laundry, oodles of towels, boogie boards, masks, and fins, and brand-new sand chairs - the list goes on and on. The unit itself has a nice feeling of privacy - the tree surrounded deck with table and chairs was perfect for meals or to enjoy a Mai Tai. The cottage is very quiet, but accessible to the major highway. We took advantage of the local farmer's markets and many fine restaurants in the area. Candace has loads of info in the unit including hiking books and menus, and is available to answer any question. Kauai is our favorite island, and Kapaa is a great location for getting around. We did day trips to Hanalei, Poipu, and Wiamea Canyon. Highly recommended.
