Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Waipouli - Sunrise Beach Home

Direct access to the Beach; 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home; Hot tub!

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 a young child to swim because of a shallow and safe natural lava rock wall running parallel to the shore. 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.

Our home is a comfortable fully furnished 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom 1200 sq.ft. beach house with a lanai facing the ocean. Imagine sitting on our lanai or in our two person hot tub to view the incredible East side sunrises or to catch the Full moon rising every month. The home has some beautiful art and furnishings in the home The owner has extensive experience in furnishings & art. We just opened on 12/15/2013

The cottage bedrooms have a King in one & a King bed in the other. The kitchen is fully equipped for anyone who has an urge for preparing a great meal. Nearby Farmers markets abound in the area. We also have a veggie garden to share with guests and an outdoor shower in a garden atmosphere to supplement our indoor bathroom.

The lots in the area are large & as one can see with the map on VRBO, we are on a corner lot with the ocean & the beach access in front of us after one crosses the combination pedestrian/bike path & the one way road. Not every house on the beach front has direct beach access. This newer home is in the front of the lot with a 85 year old cottage located in the center of the lot We are creating a screen between the two places. Both places have private garden areas.

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. The bike path extends to the front of our property. Use our two bikes to ride downtown along the ocean.

You are invited to enjoy a fantastic vacation in a reasonably priced total ocean view vacation rental. It is a unique new opportunity to be on the beach in this area.

About Ann Marie Holmes

I am the Property Manager & live just minutes away in Kapaa from our cottage on the beach. I have been living on Kauai for the last 8 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. I moved here from Oregon 8 years ago after building a house & landscaping with nature as a partner. I wrote a book, 'Earth Spirit Living' sharing my experiences about building with nature. I grew up in the bay area of California & have been working with different aspects of environment for the last 30 years. The owner has a lot of experience in creating a beautiful but comfortable home for hawaii.

Ann Marie Holmes purchased this house in 1980

Why Ann Marie Holmes chose Waipouli

This historical area, Baby Beach, features some of the original beach houses on the island & this ocean frint home is recently re-furbished & it is a pleasure to be a part of a sustainable re-vitalization for the community. The bike path, walks to great local restaurants like Tiki’s Tacos support you feeling like you are living in neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

We have a two person jacuzzi on the lanai & right now, guests are watching whales from the lanai. We also have a new awning that can be rolled down with giant full view windows of the ocean across the path on the lanai creating an outdoor room during any rain showers.The new touches around the outside shower surrounded with more plants is a tropical dream. Enjoy a great barbecue meal in a shady area facing the ocean with seating. 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 had a wonderful time in the house. We spent our days going for a run/walk aong the beach,playing in the surf & walking to restaurants nearby. When it was rainy, we went to the west side & found the sunniest beach to snorkel and swim. It was great to spend the evenings in our quiet neighborhood. The only neighbors that gave us any trouble were the roosters! They are early risers.

Perfect beach bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house - the location and price could not be beat. After checking out multiple hotels (and some other rental properties) in the area we are so glad we opted for the beach house. The view was amazing and we spent hours just sitting on the front porch watching the waves; we even saw whales! The location is perfect- we explored the entire island (so easily accessible from here) and as magnificent as it all was, we are glad that our home away from home was in Kapa'a. While we enjoyed the restaurants in the area, the added benefit here was our ability to enjoy the house and stay in and cook. We were very sad to have to leave and can't wait to return again.

Family Trip

  • 4 of 5

Location is the best feature of this house, a stone's throw from the ocean! The house is roomy for 4 with a nice yard and charcoal grill (used twice...love the fresh fish). The deck view is fantastic with a two person hot tub that my daughter enjoyed. Looks of extra stuff to use like bikes, snorkel gear and boogie boards. The 3-5 a.m.

rooster calls were a bit of a problem. A very nice lady, Ann Marie, is very attentive!

Family trip

Loved our stay at Ann Marie's home! Easy to find, great location right on the beach with all the amenities and access to the beautiful walking path! Hot tub every morning on the lanai was our favorite part! Great yard for our son to run and play with a few toys for the yard and beach provided!

After the first night we didn't even notice the roosters anymore!

Would definetly reccomend this place and hope to return one day!

Perfect for us and our two daughters

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect for our family Thanksgiving trip to Kauai, from the hot tub on the deck watching the sun rise, to our two daughters being able to walk themselves over to the beach across the 'road' - just one way traffic on a slow locals only road, to being able to walk into town for dinner it was all we could have hoped for in a vacation. Thank you especially to Anne for being there to meet us and accommodate our arrival! If only we could have stayed longer...

Unique and Fun Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

As others have stated, this is such a great place to stay being right across the street from the beach. Fun to watch all the locals who use this park daily! We saw several windsurfers also. Wonderful to be able to sit on the covered porch and watch the whole scene. The house is equipped with everything you need including beach toys and bicycles, and tons of beach towels.

The bike, walking path was truly enjoyable and we met a lot of characters along the way.

The roosters are being relocated so that little problem should get cleared up. They don't seem to know what time to crow! As the little town of Kapaa is our favorite Kauai spot, we would definitely consider staying here again.
