About the property

Luxury, 2-bedroom home around the corner from Poipu Beach.

Coco Cottage at Poipu Beach is a classic, sugar plantation-style home located on the sunny south shore of Kauai. Completely rebuilt, it offers beautiful furnishings, a fully equipped kitchen, full-size washer and dryer, two bedrooms, each with a king-size bed, two bathrooms, and a huge, breezy lanai - offering island living at its best. Located in the heart of Poipu, Coco Cottage is just a 30-second walk to the ocean at the end of the street where you will find Brennecke's Beach and Poipu Beach Park for some of the best swimming, sunning, snorkeling and surfing on Kauai. Restaurants, delis, coffee shops, surf & beach rental shops, and a tennis club are all within an easy stroll of the cottage. Kauai is a dream destination, with the famous Na Pali Coast on one end of the island and stunning Waimea Canyon on the the other. Coco Cottage is the perfect place to take advantage of all the adventures Kauai has to offer, or to relax and do nothing at all. Take advantage of our introductory rates by booking today.

About Joan and Rick Shaw

We've lived on Kauai for almost 40 years, and our grandchildren represent the 5th generation raised on the island. Rick's grandparents came to Kauai in the early 1920's; his grandfather was a civil engineer in the sugar plantation industry. We've traveled the world, but can't imagine living anywhere else. Rick is part-owner of Makai Properties, a local real estate company, and I am a long-time educator.

Joan and Rick Shaw purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Joan and Rick Shaw chose Poipu

Some of Rick's fondest memories include learning to swim, body surf, and surf at Brennecke Beach and Poipu Beach. We have classic photos of his mother swimming there in the early 1930's. Our own daughters spent their childhoods on these shores. We were thrilled to find this little house for sale in 2016, as we could see the potential for a perfect vacation home. We spent the last ten months renovating it, and adding all the special touches we would want in our own home.

What makes this cottage unique

The minute you kick off your shoes and enter Coco Cottage, you will feel yourself unwind and relax. With the French Doors open to the trade winds, ceiling fans gently turning, birds chirping outside, and the beach just steps away - you'll be in instant vacation mode. The kitchen offers everything you'll need to make a casual snack or turn out a gourmet meal. The king-size beds are brand new and comfy, and plantation shutters ensure a good night's sleep. The bathrooms are spacious and inviting, and the closets provide plenty of room for your belongings (bathing suit and shorts!). You can enjoy breakfast on the lanai, a run along the coastline, or a sunset picnic at the beach pavilion. We invite you to come, stay, and build special memories of your stay on Kauai.

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just right about this house! Ridiculously comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, large lanai and yard for the kids to play in, location a block from the ocean and another block to Poipu beach. Our hosts left spot-on recommendations for food, farmers markets and beaches that were super helpful and we used their guide book to plan hiking, snorkeling and driving trips all over the island. I don’t want to leave!

Perfectly charming

  • 5 of 5

Coco Cottage was a perfectly charming accommodation for us to experience a long awaited 28 year rendez-vous back to the Kauai with old college friends. From the moment we stepped in the front door, we felt welcomed and at home. The house lent itself well to comfortable private spaces of our own in the bedroom/baths department while enjoying the well thought out common places of the special back yard deck and dining/kitchen areas which we thoroughly enjoyed while experiencing long leisurely early morning visits and late night animated card games! Appreciated were Rick & Joan's gratuitous supplies of coolers, lawn chairs and beach towels provided for us to use and enjoy as their guests at nearby Brennecke's Beach and Poipu Beach Park . We did! All in all a winner of a time on this special island. You will enjoy your stay!

An incredible gem

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Coco Cottage was nothing short of perfection. From the moment we walked through the front door, we knew we had found something truly special. The cottage is in a perfect location and is equipped with anything one could possibly need even for the gourmet chef! However, the most important ingredient in all of this are the owners, Joan and Rick. They are incredibly accommodating, friendly, knowledgeable and kind. It is rare to find owners who make you feel so much at home. We can't wait to return to Coco Cottage!!
