Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath of Romance & Adventure at Ocean End of an 7.6 acre family farm

'Twin Hearts' a Kauai North Shore vacation rental homestay cottage is a wonderful private one bedroom, one bath handcrafted rental accommodation on our 7.6 acre Kauai North Shore estate and farm parcel. The handcrafted cottage features tons of privacy and a sweet hot tub, as well as close beach proximity, a scenic walk away.

You must share the outside space with Curly, one if our most adorable farm cats, who has claimed the cottage lanai as his territory.

Our guests, many of them repeat visitors, adore both the cottage and Curly!

Our organic ethic precludes us from spraying any toxic pesticides, and while we deal topically and organically with any of the many pests that enjoy living in the sub-tropics, you must be prepared to possible encounter the occasional ants, or geckos, or even a cockroach or two. If that is bothersome, you may be better off renting at a toxic property.

This private cottage, which is fully screened, is an exquisite, architecturally interesting, sustainable redwood home with lots of special features and privacy, about 250 feet (and lots of hedges and trees) from our home.

The cottage is accessed via a completely private 250 foot long rolled gravel driveway from the paved cul-de-sac road.

The cottage is comfortably and tastefully furnished, island style, with a hand-carved king sized poster bed with soft cotton sheets in the bedroom, a lovely living room with comfortable new queen sofa bed, a tiled bathroom, and a full-on entertainment center with satellite TV, DVD, and CD stereo. Furniture and furnishings are oriental and island-style, with some antiques and original art.

For those who enjoy using the internet, we offer high speed WI-FI.

As a special perk, the cottage now comes with a Tandem Kayak, complete with paddles, backrests, life preservers and car roof rack, perfect for jungle river adventures on Kauai's numerous waterways. That's WAY fun and easy, even if you have never kayaked before!

There are laundry facilities and a full indoor bathroom, as well as a hot and cold outdoor shower for washing the sand off when returning from Kahili-Quarry beach, which is just down the road, or any other one of the 10 world class beaches nearby.

Consistent trade breezes keep you cool and refreshed although, to be on the safe side, we have installed a decorative tropical ceiling fan in the bedroom.

There are a myriad of world class beaches close nearby. Kahili Quarry Beach is within walking distance, or you may zip down with your rental car. Kalihiwai Beach and the trailhead to Secret Beach are just 6-7 minutes away. Also nearby are Anini Beach, Hideaways, Waiakalua (wanna be all alone on a tropical beach?) and the scenic Kilauea Lighthouse.

When looking at a map of Kauai, use the Kilauea Lighthouse as a locator- it is the northernmost point on the island, and your cottage is about 1.5 miles to the southeast. The location is convenient- close to restaurants, bakeries, 2 farmer's markets each week, and fun shopping. It is an easy drive further west to Princeville (10 minutes) or Hanalei (15 minutes) yet not far the other direction to the East and South sides and to Waimea Canyon on the West side.

Twin Hearts is a legal, permitted "homestay", Class IV Zoning Permit Z-IV-2015-35, Use Permit U-2015-34, Special Permit SP-2015-12. These permits are extremely limited.

So let's see... ocean views, mountain views, private hot tub, acreage privacy, close beach proximity, laundry facility, wireless high-speed internet access, a tandem kayak, and a stunning, affordable handcrafted cottage. Plus, it is LEGAL! It doesn't get better than this. Come to Kauai and enjoy it in class at our private cottage!

About Bruce Fehring

We are Bruce and Cyndee Fehring, owners of the 7.6 acre property on which Twin Hearts cottage is located. We moved to Kauai from the Northeast 30 years ago, and have raised our family and created a wonderful life here. We designed and built Twin Hearts in 2005. We welcome guests to come and enjoy this slice of Paradise.

Bruce Fehring purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Bruce Fehring chose Kilauea

We chose this property because of it's perfect location, central to the North Shore, but not so far north as to not be within easy striking distance of the entire island. Up and out of the tsunami zone, we enjoy the weather here. Lovely ocean beaches, enough rain to keep everything green and facilitate the occasional stunning rainbow, but not so much rain as to be problematic. PLUS, we can walk to beautiful, remote, uncrowded Kahili-Quarry Beach!

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy, privacy, privacy...not to mention the interesting and unique architecture and fantastic new hot tub. Also, we reside nearby and are here in case some special need arises.

Close enough but just far enough away...

  • 5 of 5

This is the real North Kauai. Walking distance to a local beach ...outdoor shower to wash off after a day at Hanalei Bay surfing or paddle boarding up the Hanalei river..Hot tub for sitting out a rain squall. The property..Quiet, relaxed, and tropical. located just south of Kilauea, the property is close to some really good restaurants, deserted beaches, the town of Kapaa for unique shops and a surrounding lush peaceful jungle... but far enough away from the thousands of condos and traffic of Princeville. A comfortable double hammock for an evening of laying together and watching the stars. Well equipped for relaxing. Great design on the cottage...very private..and romantic. We did not get a chance to meet the owners... between a working farm schedule and the “fun” schedule we never met ..which is a plus...everything needed was there and everything there was in in tip top working order...Mahalo to the Owners! it was a great place to stay for a wonderful Kauai north shore experience!

Amazing piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful very private cottage surrounded with windows. Everything from the cottage to the stunning beauty of the gardens, the hot tub, outdoor shower and hammock. All designed with such creativity. Walking distance to a spectacular beach was one of many highlights. As was Na’ Aina Kai Botanical Garden right down the street. The owner, Bruce, was quick in response to initial inquiry and confirmation without a hitch. Loved the fresh fruit from their organic farm adjacent to the cottage. Thank you for such a splendid place to celebrate our 25 anniversary.

Note: the area Northwest of Hanelei Bay was sadly still down due to the rains and flooding in April, but there was sooo much to see and do to that point. We’ll just have to come back again to explore parts beyond. We would absolutely love to stay in this piece of paradise again. Mahalo

This place is clean and easily the best place we have stayed!

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful! It’s a little secluded slice of heaven on Kauai. You can hear the waves crashing at night! The grill and kitchen are great for making your stay more affordable. Everything about this place is amazing! I would highly recommend this stay to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words about our charming cottage. We look forward to having you as repeat guests! Thanks, also, for pointing out a few minor problems which we were able to get in order during the turnaround cleaning. The outside security light has been replaced and now works just fine. Also, a new, non-wobble toilet seat has been installed and is as secure as ever. We appreciate those heads-up observations. This guest misplaced his driver's license at the cottage, was discovered under the couch, and is now on his way back to him. We provide service with a smile.

great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Not sure why they haven't posted pictures of the kitchen as it was perfect. Everything we needed, two burner hot plate, large toaster oven, coffee maker, etc. Also a nice clean BBQ. Nice to have a hot tub, and the outdoor shower was fantastic. Beautiful walk down to the local beach. Basic supplies could use a refresh. Not much provided in staples (old s & p, tiny amt. old oils), 10 paper napkins, 1.5 roll tp, but adequate towels, dish cloths, foil, baggies and paper towels. Make sure you enjoy the fresh fruit provided on check in. Delicious!

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 50th birthdays in this wonderful cottage. If you'd like a secluded, rustic cottage, but with all the modern amenities, on the north shore, this is a great choice. The cottage is as pictured, except the new hot tub is behind the house, and the deck has a table and chairs on it. We spent a lot of time on the deck, which is guarded by a feisty, friendly cat and lots of geckos. Everything is modern and in great working order. Cottage cools down nicely at night. The hot tub under the stars with a great outdoor shower was wonderful. Location is just a short distance off the main highway near Kilauea and very close to a beach. You can hear the surf at night. Shrubs and trees surround the yard, so that you are visually secluded from the owners on one side and neighbors on the other. In Kilauea we tried Palate Wine Bar & Restaurant and Kiauea Fish Market, both excellent. Good restaurants in all the towns on the island. Owners were very responsive to email and texts. We had one minor appliance breakdown that they fixed the same day. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
