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.

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. 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.
