About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Moanakai Beach Cottages where the sun starts its journey on the east side of Kauai. Moanakai (Hawaiian for 'on the ocean') Kapaa (Waipoli) is an old spot filled with noticeable local culture. If you are interested in being a distance away from the typical tourest notion, consider Moanakai Beach Cottages as an option.

We are a short walk from bike, snorkel and kayak shops. Nearby are supermarkets, health food stores and excellent restaurants. Moanakai is a quiet comfortable beach cottage catering to those who care for a clean, relaxing base after a spectacular day of exploring our Island. The kitchen is equipped for anyone who has a sense for preparing a great meal.

The cottage property line is located five steps from the beach. Enjoy a fully furnished two bedroom cottage with all the comforts needed to please any soul after an adventuresome day.

No smoking on property, Please.

Good, not great

  • 3 of 5

I really hate to not leave glowing reviews but since I really rely on reviews when choosing a place to stay, I’ll leave my honest opinion. The home was clean and in a great location, right across from the beach where monk seals beached 3 of the 5 mornings we were there. That was a huge hit with the kids. There was what appeared to be transients living in cars along the side of the road and sometimes loud gatherings across the street. Unfortunately this seems to just be the way it is. No fault of the owners at all and wasn’t a huge deal. I just wouldn’t feel comfortable with the kids being out there alone. Larry informed us that the dryer was broken and he was waiting for an electrician to fix it but he would be willing to dry our stuff for us. He also let us know that he was gone a lot and just call if we needed anything. Since we packed light to save money on checked luggage, expecting a washer/dryer, laundry was a big deal for us. When I called Larry to see if he could dry some stuff for us, there was no answer and his VM was full. We ended up doing laundry and just drying on the rack out back but then our clothes were stiff. The pillows were all pretty hard. I ended up going to WalMart and buying a softer pillow. It would be nice to have a couple extras with different softness to choose from. All in all, it was a good trip but we wouldn’t stay there again.

Perfect beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I loved it. Had coffee on the beach every morning. It was just as in the pictures. The roosters and chickens kept us entertained. Larry, our host is very nice. He had everything we needed. We saw a monk seal sleeping on the reef this morning. Nice bonus.

Everything you need for a relaxed time on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

The house was a bit eclectic, but it was well equipped with everything you could possibly need, including beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, air conditioning in the bedrooms, sand toys, grill, kitchen utensils and cookware, coolers, etc. We loved sitting on the lanai for breakfast and dinner, getting cooled off by the sea breeze. It isn't overly fancy, but it is well priced and in an incredible location across the street from the ocean. It's also located right on the oceanside multi-use path that runs for miles along the shore, perfect for your walk/run/cycle in an incredibly picturesque location. I cannot recommend enough for people to stay here if you're okay with not staying in a five star resort and want a little bit more of a local feel, a quiet spot and to be able to cook your own meals and go at your own pace. I truly hope we will be back in the future!

A breathtaking, relaxing home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

We immediately felt a sense of calmness. The cottage was everything we expected and more. It had everything you could possibly need. Just a short walk up the driveway and you were at a amazing beach. We watched sunsets and sunrises most every day. The culture is mesmerizing and easy to adapt to. The owner of the cottage Larry was a delight and very helpful. If you want to be out of the rush of people and find a quiet spot this is definitely it. We are already planning our trip back and hopefully at the Monakai Beach Cottage. Mahalo!

The cottage could have been perfect, but it needed a lot of refurbishing. Had a lot of rotting wood.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The beech was right in front of the property and was perfect for children. The cottage had everything that one would need to cook, snorkel, boogie board, etc. The owner, Larry was very pleasant. However, the cottage needs a lot of work.

The cottage has a lot of character and is very welcoming.

This felt like a second home to us before we put our luggage down. It's our second time staying at this property.
