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.

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.

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.

Better than we could have ever asked for!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property in a wonderful location close to the beach. Joan and Rick have done a lovely job creating a cozy and homey space for visitors. Joan was also very attentive and each to reach for any questions we had. Our group could not have asked for a better experience and we can't wait to return for another visit! Mahalo!

Perfect hawaiian beach house

  • 5 of 5

The old style smaller hawaiian house, with completely renovated and up to date interior, the lawn and fruit trees and sweet birds chirping steps from the beach was just the perfect home base for our vacation! There was room for each of us to relax after our daily adventures. The house was stocked with anything you could need. Owners were wonderful as well.

We were very happy to see that this house was even more perfect then the pictures that we had viewed. The location was great allowing us to go on walks by the water every morning...the house had everything we needed and more! We definitely recommend this property to enjoy your stay. Our favorite part of this cottage was the back porch where we would enjoy playing games, drinking our morning coffee and topping off our evening enjoying a glass of wine while the breeze reminded us to relax!!

Charming beach house with the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Everything really was perfect about our stay at the Coco Cottage! We loved the location, it was literally 1 minute from the beach. Poipu was a cute town that has a lot to offer. Although we did end up exploring the whole island and spent time away from this area, it was so nice to come back at night to this cozy and perfectly equipped home. Joan and Rick were so kind and made sure we had everything we needed. We'd stay here again anytime!

Coco Cottage - perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were unable to get to our reservations in Hanalei with the flooding and landslides. Luckily Coco Cottage was available for the nights we were stranded. It was more than a recovery of our vacation it was our salvation. It's a fantastic location close to beaches. The cottage was meticulous. Joan and Rick have truly thought of everything and more. They were very responsive and welcoming. The cottage was beautifully decorated, it had all the charm of an old plantation cottage, but every modern convenience you could want. Looking forward to coming back to this special cottage. Thanks Joan and Rick!!
