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.

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!!

Coco Cottage is absolutely beautiful! Joan and Rick have thought of everything to create a beautiful and comfortable space to make you feel like it’s your home. Every detail in the house between the kitchen and the beach apparel help make your stay complete. The porch was so nice to have breakfast and dinner in with comfortable chairs and tons of space! The home is truly beautiful and the location is perfect! We really loved this place. Thank you so much for having us!

Wonderful cottage by the beach

  • 5 of 5

I recently brought my four month old baby girl on her first trip to Hawaii, and stayed at Coco Cottage. It exceeded all of our expectations!

The house is beautifully finished, with anything you could possibly need during an extended stay on the island.

Highly recommended for families for the backyard, and the home's proximity to the beach, bars, restaurants and coffee shops -- all within walking distance.

Plus, Joan and Rick went the extra mile to make our stay special.

We will definitely be back!

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!

Coco Cottage at Poipu Beach is located just four homes from the ocean and seven homes away from the Poipu Beach Park, which is the hub of activity in Poipu. Everyone coming to Poipu wants to be within easy walking distance of Poipu Beach and Brennecke's Bodysurfing Beach. All other popular, non-ocean/beach activities, shopping and restaurants are are within a 5-minute drive of our cottage. If you love the beach at Poipu, you will love our convenient location!
