Aloha and Welcome to our Polynesian tropical cottage! The moment you enter this truly Hawaiian home you will experience the feeling of Aloha. Perched on top of an extinct volcano, amongst 7 acres of lush, tropical landscape - overgrown with tropical flowers, trees , palms - the cottage feels more like a home inside a botanical garden rather then your typical condo.

Bright, open and full of tropical breeze this truly unique place has all that you might need to feel you ARE on vacation. Very private, the cottage has a spacious covered lanai ( deck - perfect to enjoy your morning coffee , afternoon drink or all of your meals ) , open living,dinning and kitchen area. Exceptionally furnished with Hawaiian furniture and artwork. Beautiful garden view throughout. Upstairs, there is a spacious , private master suite with its own bathroom - a king size bed with luxury mattress and bedding. Our cottage includes TV, wireless internet, washer and dryer, plenty beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs an ice chests.

The Hawaiian cottage is truly unique, charming , private and romantic. It is a perfect place for couples celebrating their HONEYMOON as well as for those traveling with families.

For those with families - there is also a second bedroom with 2 twin beds or we can put them together for a KING size bed ( Let us know before hand ) and a second full bath. And for those traveling with another group of friends or family , and who are looking to be together but 'separate ' we also own the adjacent unit. A perfect solution for those who want to be close but still want their own space whenever it is needed.

RESORT: Located in the heart of Poipu- walking distance to Poipu's best beaches, shopping and dinning. Brenneke's Beach ( great for body boarding ) Poipu Beach ( great for swimming , snorkeling and sunset watching ) Poipu Beach Park ( perfect for all kids- babies and toddlers) Shipwreck Beach ( perfect for strolling, hiking or just 'chilling out ' )

The resort has a Hawaiian clubhouse, restrooms, sauna, ping-pong table, BBQ ,plenty of tables and lounge chairs. Large swimming pool - great for kids as well as adults wanting to swim laps. ( As there are not that many cottages the pool os very often quiet and you will find many times that you can have it all to yourself. ) There is also a tennis court for those who enjoy the sport and for golfers a very short drive ( 5 min ) to the best golf courses on Kauai.

Private parking space in not far away from the cottage.

Book this Hawaiian cottage....experience the authentic island style living. ..experience Kauai ...and experience true ALOHA! You will NOT be disappointed !

About Owner/Property Manager

Hello , my name is Iwona Szajer and live on Kauai. I am originally from Poland and my husband is from Germany. We call ourselves 'gypsies' as we live in many beautiful places , and yet Kauai is always home. I arrived on Kauai in 1991 and I have made it a home for the girls. They have gone to schools here and they consider Kauai home.Tatjana , the eldest, lives on Oahu but ultimately wants to be back on Kauai. Ariella is still in school at John Hoppkins and is hoping to one day do good for humankind :-) Daniel , our son has just entered Kindergarten here on the island. We love what Kauai has given us...someone said to us once that moving here has given them an extra 10 years of life...we don't know about that , but what this place has given 'us' is many wonderful memories...we love the life style here...we hope to share some of it with you.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 1995

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Kauai

When I moved for good to Kauai in 1994 I searched for a place that would have a 'blend' of many things. I wanted a great location, a safe place for the girls to be outside, a place where I could enjoy running and hiking. A place that was private and yet where I could meet people. After many visits I found Poipu Crater and it was PERFECT! I truly felt ( and still do ) that this is Poipu's little secret . My friends and neighbors use to say that all the time. So many people in Poipu don't even know that this place exist. Before I bought this cottage, I have lived in few other units and ultimately made the decision to buy the one that I currently own. I made that decision because of the location. My unit is truly in the BEST location. I have the morning sun - I can have my breakfast on the lanai ( it's still not too hot ) and in the afternoon am able to enjoy the outside as well . My unit is perched on top of the Crater and because of its unique location it is comfortable all year round. The morning sun warms it up in the morning , the prevailing trade winds keep it cool all day and I have no or very little mosquito's! It's these small things that one can only find out after truly 'living' in the place and because I had the chance to 'try' other cottages and was lucky to be there at the time when I had choices. I chose this particular one because it is the BEST! I have LIVED there and raised my girls there for 8 years. My husband and I always envisioned ourselves retiring here...but as our family grew we had to find a bigger place. We were lucky that when the adjacent cottage went for sale , we bought it . We still have a long ways to retirement , especially now with our 5 year old, but at least we have the knowledge that one day if not us, the girls will be back in 'their' home.

Currently we live in the house 5min. from the cottage...but our hearts are still there.

Great central location. Very quiet and private. Good value.

  • 4 of 5

Great central location. Very quiet and private. Beautiful grounds and tennis court. Pool is large enough to swim laps. Nice common area by the pool with large covered lanai, BBQ's, table tennis, indoor seating area, showers and sauna. Nicely laid out unit with full size washer and dryer, but it needs to be thoroughly cleaned (hence the 4/5 rating). Could also use a renovation but that was not a big deal for us. No ocean view, but from the lanai you can hear the waves crashing on the shore. Very comfortable king bed in the master suite and good quality linens and towels. Great rental for the price paid. We plan to return in the future.

Great place to stay with a family

  • 4 of 5

We really liked the decor of this place. We appreciated that they encourage people to leave behind condiments, etc. so we didn't have to buy all that stuff. The kitchen was fairly well appointed. They had boogie boards, snorkel stuff, towels, beach chairs and an ice chest which were all great to be able to borrow. We loved being able to sit on the lanai in the morning and night. The area is pretty quiet which was also nice. Our kids enjoyed the pool and it was a reasonable walk to the Grand Hyatt where I had a conference. Cons: Some things seemed old- We couldn't get in with the lock box out front but the manager answered our call and sent somebody over right away. He was able to get it open without any trouble but then couldn't get it closed. He said it does sometimes get stuck, which to me should have meant that they replaced it before. The front door is very old and stuck and was difficult to open and close. Our kids couldn't really use it. One of the screen sliding doors kept coming off of it's tracks so we didn't use that. Overall, we would likely stay here again, especially for the quality combined with the price.

Jen and family

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Poipu. Very comfortable place for my husband, our two boys ages 9&6, and myself. Loved the pool and BBQ, neither of which were ever crowded. Boys loved chasing geckos and finding snails. Quick drive and walk to the beach and restaurants. Place was very well appointed.

Cottage Poipu Crater

  • 3 of 5

We stayed four nights at this cottage. We found it to be a little on the small/cozy side, and dated. The grounds were beautiful with all kinds of tropical plants. The kitchen had the bare essentials, but nothing extra. The deck area was quite nice with a table and four chairs.

Close to the ocean and a 8 minute walk to the BEST beaches on the south side of Kauai. Hawaiian cottage is located in the heart of Poipu - walking distance to not only beaches , but also shopping , dinning and spa. Great place to stay if you enjoy hiking , whale watching and running as there beautiful paths from the cottage which go along for miles.
