Blue Lotus Cottage is a special plantation style beach cottage, custom built in 2005, and only one short block backfrom the ocean with a wide and direct ocean view.

A short walk (100+ steps) takes you to a small sandy beach area. Kekaha is an old plantation town, away from the crowds and major resorts, situated at the base of the Waimea Canyon. You will definitely get the island experience in this people friendly town, with Hawaiian neighbors. Kick back on the shaded ocean view lanai, in comfy lounge chairs, and enjoy the ocean breeze and look for whales. Enjoy the best sunsets the island has to offer, and get the least amount of rain and humidity on your vacation. With less than 15 inches of rain a year, this is the place to be when the rain is falling on other parts of the island.

The open floor plan incorporates the kitchen, great room, and dining area....all with a great ocean view. Walls of windows capture the trade winds, keeping the cottage comfortable.

The kitchen has a large island with stools and granite countertops. The kitchen is fully equipped with newer appliances, including a glass top range, fridge, dishwasher, oven, and microwave. Cooking meals at home is a pleasure. Every kitchen small appliance is here from coffee grinder to rice cooker, food processor, and a blender to make that island drink.

Beautifully furnished with wicker, sea grass, teak wood, island decor and art. Maple wood floors and fans in every room. A master bedroom with it's own bath, newer King bedroom furniture and mattress. There is also a second TV in the master bedroom. The second bedroom has NOVA MEMORY FOAM KING BED, and lots of soft pillows for added comfort. This room can also be made into a twin room upon request. There is a trundle bed in the 3rd bedroom, also with memory foam. All of the linens are new 500 ct. cotton sateen, and the towels are thick and thirsty. The personality and charm of this cottage will make your vacation one of the best experiences ever.

Kekaha Beach Park, about 1 mile away, offes lifeguard safety. Salt Pond Beach Park, about 15 minutes away, is a perfect crescent shaped beach park, which is ideal for small children with small waves. Polihale State Beach is for the adventurous beach goer, looking for that wild dune backed beach. After a bumpy 5 mile dirt road, you are rewarded with a secluded beach that is, to many, the most beautiful on the island.

At the base of the Waimea Canyon, you have direct access to fantastic scenery, and miles of hiking opportunities. It is often been called the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific'.

Hanapepe Art Night, every Friday night, is for the art lover and only 10 minutes away. It's restored galleries have many art treasures for viewing and purchase.

Waimea, only two miles away, has two larger grocery stores, restaurants, and a movie theater. Don't miss the fresh shrimp from the nearby Sunrise Shrimp Farm. Within minutes, there are several restaurants for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. For a special night out, the Poipu Resort area offers you numerous upscale dining and shopping opportunities.

Fifteen minutes to Port Allen marina, this is the starting point for the Na Pali Coast boat tours. Also nearby by, the Kauai Coffee Plantation offers taste testing and tours. There is also a public golf course that offers inexpensive golfing, in a historic hill top setting, offering challenging golf and fantastic vistas across the island.

But most of all, this former plantation community is a beach town.

You are guaranteed to have the driest and sunniest weather on the island each day, and access to 15+ miles of nearly deserted beach. Mornings are generally electric blue skies with light breezes. The sunsets are only seen from this part of the island, and they make for a memorable end to another day in paradise.

Come and visit for awhile, and you may find yourself wanting to stay forever. People fall in love with Kauai, and often come back every year, to spend their days by the sea in the sun and surf. Why not give it a try? You can spend a week here, for the price of two nights at one of the resort hotels.

This is living....island style! Live Aloha!

About Scott Worner

We purchased the house, being from New York, looking for a warm and sunny place to spend some quiet time.

Scott Worner purchased this house in 2012

Why Scott Worner chose Kekaha

More sun and warmth. Less rain and humidity. Quiet and more old world Hawaii. Love the 15+ mile beach. This is the real Hawaii, not the one of resorts and expensive hotels.

What makes this house unique

Favorite thing to do is just walk out the front door, across the street to the beach, and grab a spot under palm trees slightly to the left and watch the ocean and sunsets. Love to sit out on the lanai and read. I like to cook fresh fish, among other things, and that's why I have such a well equipped kitchen. We have done most of the excursions and just like to relax at home mostly. But my favorite excursion is taking a catamaran up the Napali Coast.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Blue Lotus was delightful! Everything was available-beach chairs, beach towels, etc. This was our first trip to Hawaii! We have now been to all 50 states. A long time goal for us. Thanks for making it so enjoyable. We hope to make it back! With our family next time.

Above and Beyond the Best Vacation Home/ Host

  • 5 of 5

This Home is Fabulous! It has everything you'd ever want in a Vacation Home. Air conditioning, big fluffy towels, extremely comfortable beds and it is Right Across from one of the Best Beaches on Earth. We were here when the Hawaii Ballistic Missile Crisis happened( on our daughter's wedding day!), but even that could not detract from the Beauty and Tranquility this Home offers. It is located in sleepy Kekaha and I would recommend this side of the Island to anyone. Some would say it is too far away from Lahui/Kapaa/Princeville, but I found it to be the perfect setting for our 10 days here. The neighbors were sweet and charming, the Church/School in front was darling and friendly and the House was Perfect. We have stayed in many, many vacation Homes but this Home was and is our favorite so far.

We like to take a picture of Dad with us on our vacations( he is in Heaven!), so that he too can enjoy Paradise, well this time I forgot to pack Dad away when we left and Scott, the Owner, sent it to me in the mail! Thank you Scott for Rescuing Dad, we like to think he let us forget him on pupose so that he could stay extra long at the Blue Lotus Cottage. Thank you Scott, we will never forget your extra Kindness and we will never, ever forget the Blue Lotus House. It was the Best!! Mahalo

Loved the Blue Lotus!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights and wished it could have been longer! Blue Lotus is only a short walk to an an expansive, sandy beach, which you can see from the porch. The house was roomy, comfortable and well-equipped with kitchen and beach supplies. We especially appreciated the beach umbrellas and ample supply of beach towels. The decor, with beautiful island paintings and photos on the walls, wooden floors, and the charming, unique furniture "with Hawaiian vibes" per my daughter, made our inside time a pleasure.

The washer and dryer were very handy and the porch was an inviting place to relax. The carport made it easy to move our stuff back and forth from the jeep. The outdoor shower was great for after-beach rinsing of ourselves and snorkeling equipment. Although it has air conditioners, we found that nights were always cool enough not to need them. My wife and daughter appreciated the plumeria trees in the yard, allowing them to put sweetly-scented, fresh flowers in their hair every day. The location was ideal for us, close to Waimea Canyon, the beautiful wild beaches of the Western shore, and just a short hop to the harbor terminal for exploring the Nepali coastline. The night skies were amazing for stargazing. We prefer to stay in a relatively non-touristy area and this suited our needs very well. Our host, Scott, was easily accessible, gracious, and accommodating. I highly recommend Blue Lotus.

Great house in Kekaha !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 weeks in this very clean, comfortable house. It was very well equipped with everything you would want to make you feel at home. Easy walk to one of the best beaches in Hawaii. Great place to experience a relaxing Hawaiian get away and have easy access to Polihale, Na Pali Tours and Waimea Canyon.

Perfect for the 6 of us!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Blue Lotus cottage with 3 adult sons and 1 girlfriend for 11 days at Christmas. We especially appreciated all the needed supplies for a day on the beach or exploring the island. We used the coolers everyday to pack a lunch for our adventures and the beach chairs, umbrella, beach mats and football were great for the beach! The place was very clean and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies, spices, condiments and even a "junk drawer" where we found needle and thread, post it notes, and pen and paper for keeping score. We used the BBQ, made cookies with the cookie sheets, and packed sandwiches and snacks in the reusable containers for our picnics. We enjoyed breakfast on the front porch, walked the block to the beach to watch the sunset most nights, and enjoyed games at the table after dinner. Thanks for a warm, wonderful Christmas! Lights on the palm tree in living room was festive touch!! We would come again.

Relaxation at it's finest

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Lotus was as advertised and we enjoyed a wonderful week. After staying here for the first week, than going to Princeville, we wished we would have stayed the whole 2 weeks right here. The house was spotless and had everything you could think of. Loved the outdoor shower and the clothes line to hang your suits. Walking across the smooth grass to the beach for a beautiful sunset and a cold beverage was a perfect way to end the day. One day we were just sitting on the comfortable front chairs, enjoying a great breeze when a gentleman came by on a horse, he stopped and talked for a while just making sure everything was good, just being friendly, and that the way this side of the Island is. Loved every moment of our stay.

Perfect place to stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Lotus is the place to stay. VERY CLEAN AND PERFECT. The house had everything, the rooms were perfect, the kitchen, laundry room, beach stuff, grill, table & chairs and even an outside shower to rinse off after the beach. For a nice sunset view you much sit outside on the porch with your cocktails beautiful. All you need is your personal items and food. It was the perfect place to stay and mins. away from the Race Track in Mana where we were going to for the 4th of July races. I wanted to thank Mr. Worner for making everything very simple and for his prompt responds. We love this place and will be back in September 2015. I highly recommend staying here.
