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.

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. Until recently, Rick was a part-owner of Coldwell Banker Makai Properties, a local real estate company, which he sold to Coldwell Banker Island Properties from Maui. Rick is now a broker with CBIP and Joan recently retired after a long career in education.
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 most of 2017 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 of high quality 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.

An amazing place to spend your vacation!
Rick and Joan have filled this space with thoughtful touches and we were given a warm ALOHA welcome. The cottage was beautifully furnished and decorated, cozy and comfortable. It has all of the little things you may need while away from home, including pantry items, personal items and odds and ends for trips to the beach which is a block and a half away. The lanai is a lovely space to enjoy the beautiful Kaua'i weather and the back yard is private and beautiful. What an amazing place to spend your vacation!
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Coco Cottage. Your feedback is invaluable. Mahalo nui loa and a hui hou (until next time).
Great house in a great location. Had everything we needed and then some
Thank you for your positive review!
Amazing house and location
One of the best stocked and appointed rentals we have stayed in. Perfect for a beach oriented stay on Kauai. Would definitely stay here again!
We appreciate the kind comments, and hope to have your family stay with us again. Best wishes for a happy holiday season.
Beautiful home which is high quality through and through. Wish we could have stayed longer!
We would definitely book a stay in Poipou at this beautiful home again. Owners have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We felt very pampered.
Super Clean, great home on the best side of the island,
What can I say about this place other than it was more than I expected. Location, amenities, cleanliness...It was perfect! My husband and i decided to stay here for our wedding week. Place was beautiful while my bridesmaid and I got ready! Lighting was perfect! Not to mention the great greenery outside for pictures. Joan and Rick pretty much thought of everything you could need and more. Thank you so much! I have so many great memories in your home and thanks for being apart of our special day/week! THANK YOU!
Best wishes to you and Noel for a long and happy marriage. May the peace and beauty of Kaua’i inspire a lifetime of health and good fortune. Please return for your anniversaries!
Look no further
Absolutely amazing house. Immaculate, meticulously cared for, beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you need or want. Close enough to Brennecke's and Poipu beach you can walk back for lunch or for a quick break. Brennecke's was awesome for boogie boarding and Poipu beach for snorkeling. There is some construction noise next door but we didn't notice it much unless we were home during the day. Looks like they are about done with the framing so I wouldn't let this be a deterrent. I can't recommend this place enough if you're staying on the south shore.
We are happy you chose Coco Cottage to celebrate your anniversary! Thank you for the positive endorsement. We look forward to the completion of the house next door as it promises to be an asset to the neighborhood. We hope you find your way back to Kaua’i soon.
