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)

Excellent location!

  • 4 out of 5
My gal friends and I enjoyed our time in this home right across from the baby beach. We had access to four bikes, lawn chairs, boards, snorkel gear, etc. This house is 75 years old and has a feeling of family about it. The furniture could be uncomfortable at times, but you'll want to be outside at the beach or biking the bike path. We walked a couple of blocks to Starbucks every morning. Anne Marie met us when we arrived. What an interesting lady! Would definitely stay here again!

Awesome cottage and Location

  • 5 out of 5
We found this house to be everything we expected. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us, all adults. Spacious bedrooms too. We had our choice of sitting areas. Dining room or living room inside. Outside we had the sunny side for morning coffee or the the covered Lanai for evenings and rainy days, or to just get out of the sun. The house is well stocked, from fluffy bathrobes to spices in the kitchen. We were always amazed what we found when we needed something. The bicycles and beach equipment came in handy too.
The beach is just across the street and can be viewed from the front lawn. Handy for a morning stroll, or to just sit and watch the whales in the distance.
Downtown is walkable from here, with the walking/bike path running right out front. Can also access other beaches from the path.
Bring ear plugs if you are sensitive to noise at night. This is a busy corner for traffic and if you aren't familiar with Kauai, the roosters crow most of the night. This took us a bit by surprise.

Nice Place!

  • 4 out of 5
This is a quaint house, and appears to be much like it was in the early days of Kaua'i as a vacation get-away. We very much enjoyed our one-week stay there. The manager was over immediately to greet and show us, familiarizing us with the house. We very much appreciated the excellent Wi-Fi, well-appointed kitchen, comfy beds and luxurious Martha Stewart Collection robes. We really appreciated the two bicycles that were there for us and loved the bike trail that begins almost outside the door. There are a couple things that could be improved: there are no hooks to hang anything in the bathrooms, a minor and easily added item. The furniture is nice-looking wicker but decidedly not comfortable to sit in for any length of time. Replacing all cushions would really be nice. Guests should be aware that there are actually two different rental units; this is the rear one, with only a very partial view of the ocean from inside the cottage. The second bathroom for our cottage was outside in another small building and kept locked. The covered sitting area is nice but has no view of anything other than the back of the house. The other seating area offers an ocean view but it is not covered - it rained lightly often while we were there and so in the end we did not use that area even once. There is an outdoor shower but it is shared with the other unit and is recommended for rinsing with a bathing suit unless you are comfortable enough to share your nakedness. There is a single charcoal grill to be shared between the two units, which seems also to be the case with the bicycles. We feel it's good to know these things in advance so that you're not surprised upon arrival. All in all, though, a good place to stay!

Owner's Response: These dear guests arrived during one of our wettest winters on record so I am sure it impacted their experience. The key to the second bathroom was available to them at all times & was labeled bath. The outside covered sitting area has a garden view & the view of the house that is mentioned is at an angle from the seating area. And the other seating area is used more for a summer experience & is open to the elements for a good experience of sitting by the ocean & is usually good for some wonderful sunny days in the winter but this winter was much wetter.
We have 2 barbecues now & 4 bikes that are shared between the two houses.

Great place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
Location, location, location. This house is across the street from the sand and the beach. This house is within a few blocks from a post office, hardware and grocery store. The Kapaa walking-biking trail passes right in front of the house and it is less than a mile to all the shops and restaurants in Kapaa. And the location is central for going north or south to other places on the island. The kitchen was provided with juicers, waffle iron, etc., more and better small appliance and lots of dishes than we have at home. This house came with two bicycles, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach mats and chairs; which you didn't have to rent.
Being there in January we saw whales out in the sea and two monk seals on the beach; also beautiful sunrises almost every morning. Ann Marie was always helpful and had answers for all of our questions about the area.

Baby Beach Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Couldn't ask for much better! Right across the street from the beach and short walking distance to town. Cottage seems small but when you go inside it appears much larger due to set up and multiple ways to enter areas. Very cute garden and back yard area! I would definitely come back to this place!!!

Absolutely Awesome!

  • 4 out of 5
This house was such a delight to stay in. So close to Shops, groceries, beach, everything. We had a really good time with the equipment that was provided at the beach. From scuba gear to towels, we didn't have to worry about purchasing anything. The house was comfortable and well stocked. Ann Marie was a joy to work with and we will most likely stay there again when we go back. The bike/walking path was the best. Lead to the prettiest beach and the kids went there almost every day. Mahalo for such a lovely time on our first trip to Kauai!
