Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Kapaa - Baby Beach Hale

Cottage: 3 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Live just steps from the beach in our ocean front cottage! If you ask anyone in the world what their dream destination is, chances are they are going to tell you “Hawaii.” With alluring ocean waves, breathtaking landscapes, and a vast amount of natural beauty surrounding the island-it is no surprise why millions of vacationers visit this destination each year. While there are hundreds of cities in Hawaii, one of the most awe-inspiring hotspots is Kauai. From rich beach hangouts to an array of activities such as parasailing and surfing; the opportunities are endless.

Located on Baby Beach in Kapaa, families can bring their children to swim because of a shallow and safe natural lava rock wall running parallel to the shore. This right in-town beach is a long time favorite easy stop for families to play in the water & for local workers to take a break by the ocean after work in our largest town on the island. A short walk to the north offers a more adult swimming area. A bus system runs regularly and reliably & can take you to the many sites throughout the island with a bus stop conveniently located 3 blocks from the house.

Our 85 year old, Plantation style, Hawaiian cottage is a comfortable fully furnished 3 bedroom 1250 sq.ft. beach house with 4 outside seating areas catering to those who care for a clean, relaxing base after a spectacular day of exploring our Island. The cottage bedrooms have a King in one & a queen bed in another & a double with a futon available as well in the 3rd bedroom. The small kitchen is fully equipped for anyone who has a sense for preparing a great meal. Nearby Farmers markets abound in the area. We also have a veggie garden to share with guests.

We are a short walk from bike, snorkel, kayaking & shops. Nearby are supermarkets, health food stores and excellent restaurants. A spectacular 6 mile paved path along the coast beckons you to walk, bike or picnic. Along the path, you can watch turtles at sunset feeding & occasionally witness a rare monk seal coming in for a rest on the beach. And recently the bike path now extends to our front door. Use our two bikes to ride downtown along the ocean.

You are invited to enjoy a fantastic vacation in a Hawaiian downtown beach vacation rental.

About Ann Marie Holmes

I am the Property Manager & live just minutes away from our cottage on the beach. I have been living on Kauai for the last 7 years & have been working with renting out personal properties the whole time. I have design experience & love the spectacular natural beauty of Kauai & use these influences to create relaxing, clean environments for guests.

Ann Marie Holmes purchased this cottage in 1927

Why Ann Marie Holmes chose Kapaa

This historical area, Baby Beach, features some of the original beach houses on the island & this sweet cottage is recently re-furbished. More renovations are on the way for this property as this neighborhood is unique & it is a pleasure to be a part of a sustainable re-vitalization for the community.

What makes this cottage unique

Orchids abound in our side garden with some blooming & some almost ready. The new touches around the outside shower surrounded with more plants is a tropical dream to experience & with 4 outside seating areas, one area covered from the elements, you can experiece ocean views one time, a private moment with the the colorful garden surrounding you in another setting or enjoy a great barbecue meal outside in another. Also, Forbes has just named Kapaa, one of the prettiest towns in America! The movie, The Descendants, brought our fair town more attention.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came to see our daughter, son in law(owners of trees Lounge @ Coconut marketplace); met up with our daughter & grand kids from L.A. & to celebrate graduation for 2 college grads…

We could not have picked a better spot. House is everything we needed. Excellent beach for kids. Saw Monk seal and sea turtles…Ann Marie & Craig are so nice to talk to. Excellent touches here. Robes, sewing kit ,fresh flowers, bikes & house is adorable. We will be back. (From our Guest book in the cottage)

The perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of 6 people) stayed at the house for a college friend's wedding, and we had a blast! We are already talking about our next stay there! The property is in a quiet neighborhood, is right by the beach (literally facing the water), and walking distance to a farmer's market, Pono Market (great for poke!), Safeway, and everything else you would need for your stay. The property was so cozy and comfortable and definitely great for a group of friends. We can't wait to come back!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Clearly the best aspect of the Baby Beach Cottage was its location on the ocean front with immediate access to the biking and hiking trail that hugs the coast. The other awesome aspect of the location was basically being in Kapaa with its central location. Driving to either the north or south coast to seek the sun on rainy days was a great option. Also, all the grocery stores and restaurants are within easy walking distance.

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad that I picked this place to stay at! The location is perfect, right in the heart of Kapaa. It's also a one-way street away from your own slice of beach! Three bedrooms with very nice beds, all towels and household goods you could ask for (plates, silverware, washer/dryer, grill, towels galore, at least six robes, games and all the beach toys we could use!). We ended up adding a football to the collection for future guests. Anne Marie was more than gracious throughout the entire booking process and even swapped out for a new king bed during our stay. The only complaint would be the cable didn't seem to work but honestly we just turned it on to see if it would (the bluray player does work, however). Being in Hawaii we didn't even need it so that's nitpicking. This place is 100% beach house charming and we will definitely consider it the next time we come to Kauai!

A thoughtfully curated piece of "Old Hawaii"

  • 5 of 5

This house reminded me of my grandmother's house --modest, clean, chalk full of charming decor, and with every single thing you might need to cook, or enjoy the beach. This isn't a brand-spanking new condo, rather it's a touch of "Old Hawaii," and the stay here felt both authentic and warm. There are three well-furnished bedrooms, with nice comforters and plenty of extra blankets and towels nearby, as well are robes, if you need them. It's literally steps from the beach, and while we were in the back cottage, we could still see the and hear the waves. We loved it. Ann Marie has done an incredible job curating a casual beach-goers vacation cottage. The kitchen is one of the most well-equipped that I've ever found in a rental! While the kitchen is small, any cook will find it efficient and easy to use. From a complete range of pots and pans, to a rice cooker, top notch blenders, and even baking sheets, we ended up cooking every single meal here at the house. (We recommend the Big Save market, which you can walk to, as well as grabbing a Shave Ice from Aaron if you go in the afternoon). We also noted that she had bicycles, snorkeling equipment, an ice chest, beach chairs and towels easily available. There were board games, plenty of writing paper, WiFi, as well as use of a Smart TV. We had use of a washer and dryer, as well as a barbecue, and picnic table. There's an extra shower and bathroom outside off the laundry room, if you have enough people that you'd need to use it. The gardens are beautiful, with plumeria, ti plants. This is definitely a winner, and Ann Marie is a very accommodating host!

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

This house and location was perfect for our family! My young boys even managed to sleep through the early wake-up calls from the chickens! The house has everything you need from beach supplies and chairs, bikes, snorkel gear and even a grill. The kitchen was fully stocked, so be sure to check the house before you go on a grocery run. The beach was perfect for my little ones and the bike path was awesome. We look forward to staying here again for our next trip to Kauai!

Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

What a great location where you can walk out to the beach in 30 seconds and not have to cross a main highway, only a bike path and small road. There is a bike path there that you can ride on for five miles along the coast line and the bikes are supplied! There is also snorkeling equipment and boogie boards and chairs and umbrellas. The kitchen was stocked with not only utensils but some condiments. There were a few days we did not drive anywhere. Kapaa is centrally located so you can drive north and south without driving too much distance. The owner was very communicative and friendly but gave us our privacy. It's a great home to relax in and that is just what we did. The house is not elegant but that's not want we wanted. It's a great beach house and the beds were VERY comfortable. Decorated quaintly and "beachy". We were very comfortable there and would definitely rent this house again. We had an incredible vacation during our stay in this house and we always looked forward to coming back to it at the end of an adventurous day.
