About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Spend your vacation on the beautiful, sunny South Shore of Kauai in Poipu. Poipu is home to some of Kauai's most beautiful beaches, golf courses, and world class restaurants. Also, Poipu is equal distance to the North Shore of Kauai and the West side of Kauai including the Wiamea canyon( the 'Grand Canyon ' of the Pacific). Spend lazy days at the beach or look for adventure. You will love our spacious, airy, large unit for two in a separate building, vaulted ceilings, laundry, wi-fi, Hi-Def Dish network and DVR with over 200 channels, king bed, huge lanai with teak furniture for outdoor living and BBQ. Distant ocean view, 10 minute walk to beach and restaurants of Poipu. Beautiful hardwood floors, granite counters, walk in shower with vessel sink in bathroom. Very quiet and private, unique setting on private estate with beautiful views of mountains and ocean. Beach supplies available. Biking and hiking nearby as well as some prime surf and snorkel/diving locations. If you like to have some space around you while on vacation and not in the middle of a high density resort local, our cottage is for you.

30 day cancelation policy.

About shari pilaria

I am an artist, my husband is a realtor. We have two children, and horses who love to be fed carrots and apples. We have lived on Kauai for 17 years and can tell you where to go to have a great time while you are visiting.

shari pilaria purchased this cottage in 2005

Why shari pilaria chose Kauai

We love living here as we are near all of what makes Poipu exciting but away from the crowded resort developements that offer little quiet or privacy

What makes this cottage unique

Banana tree cottage is in a private separate building on the second floor or my art studio. It is very quiet and not on top of other residences in high density developments. Each window offers either a view of fields and distant ocean or mountain views. We are close enough to walk down to the beach in about 10 minutes, but far away enough that you don't have to be in a crowded area - but a rural feeling area with horses and trees and and expansive lawn to look out upon. We have high quality bed linens and towels and have made very effort to make our vacation unit as nice or nicer than your home on the mainland so you can fully enjoy your stay on Kauai even if you rarely leave the cottage.

Convenient, relaxing and as advertised.

  • 4 of 5

The cotttage as the photos suggests sits atop a double garage / art studio used by the owner. To the right of the photo is the main house. There is a distant sea view and the balcony / veranda / lanai is mostly shielded from the prevailing winds making it a pleasant place to sit after a day out. The main Poipu beaches are about a 10 minute walk away.

The cottage is very well equipped and that included a beach cooler bag and ice blocks. There were 2x snorkel sets, 3 beach chairs and an umbrella when we stayed there.

The hosts live on the property but gave us all the privacy we wanted. They were very responsive to any needs or suggestions we had.

The cottage is not up market compared to nearby timeshare and luxury resorts and is a little tired in some ways. BUT it has a charm and is really convenient to all that the south has to offer. The paddocks with horses were a pleasant side view, and the fact that one is off the main beachfront area is a plus in my opinion.

Comfortable, great location in Poipu, seamless check in and out

  • 5 of 5

The property is located a short distance from the resorts and beaches of Poipu, but really feels like a quiet ranch. There are horses, a few dogs, and of course chickens.

The cottage is incredibly comfortable, all amenities were great, especially having laundry. As others have said, the photos don't do it justice.

It's was a perfect home base for us as we went to both north coast beaches, Waimea canyon, and everywhere in between.

Shari also had good recs and was quick to respond. Highly recommend!

Cute Cottage Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is a very cute cottage with great breezes through out the entire place! Location was away from the noise and busy tourist places but still close enough to drive to beach or eating places in a very short time. We walked to the beach once and found it to take us 20 minutes, but we are not young!! We did have one problem at the cottage, but the owners were very quick to try and remedy it for us. They live right there and were very nice and quick to respond!

Nice location, beautiful home overlooking gardens

  • 4 of 5

Good location to explore the south coast, nice house in green, blooming residential area. The wooden floor in particular is very beautiful!

In principle, everything one needs is there for cooking or beaching. It would take very little effort to make the place really perfect: the knifes need sharpening, all the kitchen ware should be thoroughly cleaned (including the drawers) - this most likely also will decrease the number of insects searching for food.

These are minor issues in an otherwise really nice place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Marcus. We have since done a Spring cleaning and had the exterminators come. A new knife set is in the cottage too!

Absolutely WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

I arrived late at night, so it was dark and did not immediately get an opportunity to see the property. But inside was gorgeous! Hardwood floors, the doors are carved wood, everything top of the line! There is a full size washer and dryer, large living space, fully stocked kitchen.... Just beautiful! When I woke up, I was grinning ear to ear! The property is gorgeous! They have sweet horses to look at in the pasture, beautiful yard, super nice lanai to have breakfast at.... FAR exceeds any hotel you will ever find. And the owners are amazingly kind! I will be visiting here again!

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love the location and the price. Accommodations were very good. Loved the deco. Had everything we needed including beach gear. Roomy for two with a nice big porch. Needs a little maintenance.

Car: recommended

Poipu is the sunny South Shore of beautiful Kauai. Our property is in a quiet location away from the crowded condos that typify Poipu. Rural setting with mountain and ocean views, 1/3 mile to the beach.
