Overview

Poipu Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Ocean view, short walk to beaches, 80 feet from ocean. Relax, swim, snorkel, surf, watch / swim with turtles. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet with beaches just a short walk in either direction. This romantic cottage is located at Ho’ai Bay, with some of the best swimming and snorkeling in Poipu and on the island. (Lawai beach and Whaler’s cove). Baby Beach is a short stroll away. Just take your towel and a beach chair and enjoy a private beach area. Swim in the reef protected beach. Then off to PK’s for surfing.. Located across the street. Our cottage is paradise for us. Enjoy the lanai living with Weber BBQ for those "eat in" nights and happy hour on the deck while listening to the sound of the surf. Relaxing with a meal, a drink or just a good book. A number of past guests have been on their honeymoon and given us great reviews. On a hot day, enjoy the top quality air conditioning throughout the entire house. No big resort scene - just relax. There are several shopping centers in the area, a variety of restaurants, grocery stores, surfing, fishing and golf courses. Ample off street parking for 2 cars. We have remodeled the interior and added all new designer furnishings and Beach art from Aspire. All designer bedding and very soft sheets. PLUS, each bedroom has a new king bed. Best of all, we have joined the Poipu Beach Athelic Club a brand new private club. With our special arrangement, we can offer "Stay Memberships" to our guests. A minimal cost of $100 per week gives you this fabulous club about 1 mile from our cottage. It includes, tennis, sand pool with slide, Work out area, yoga classes and various club events. Or just relax in the private restaurant bar close to the pool. Check it out at www.poipuclub.com. You can include this membership when you finalize your reservation. It's worth it!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Watching the sunsets, playing ukulele with friends across from Beach House Restaurant, walking to PK's to surf, Lawai Beach to swim and snorkel, Ho 'ai bay swimming with the turtles, walking through or relax at Prince Kuhio Park, lounging around reading a good book on Baby Beach, long walks to the harbor in the morning, oatmeal with fresh papaya, mangos, watching amazing breathtaking sunset, eating fresh-cooked shrimp from the Mobile Shrimp Lady, eating dinner at Keoki's from their bar menu, walking to the Sheraton on a full moon night for dinner, star gazing at night.......it goes on and on!

Turtles in Ho'ai bay: This is where they live during the day. There is a dive company that comes here and takes groups out to see them. You can follow them out or go on your own. ALWAYS WEAR SWIM FINS.

Snorkeling: Lawai beach is a short walk away and has some of the best snorkeling on the island. Easy entry with plenty of colorful fish and with an incoming tide you will often see a turtle.

Ho'ai bay is even closer and has a family of turtles that lives 3/4 of the way to the outside reef. You will often find a dive group going out to view them and you will see them coming in to feed at the waters edge as the tide comes in.

About Bev Burroughs and Jeff Jakus

This is a great story. My husband, Jeff took me to Kauai one year and I fell in love. I had spent time in several other islands over the years but once I found Kauai, I couldn't imagine a more peaceful and natural Paradise to call home. We first bought a great home in the Wailua Homestead area that we love for it's serenity and our waterfall and 100's of acres of Tropical forest behind the house. Then on a visit to some friends staying in Poipu, we found this lovely small neighborhood on a one lane road across from Baby Beach. Paradise found AGAIN! We fell in love with Turtle Cove Cottage and purchased it after only seeing it once. We loved this darling Beach cottage and wanted to call it "ours" and share it. Having been in the Real Estate business for many years, we love remodeling and "redressing" a home to bring out it's beauty. Turtle Cove is no exception. We are so excited to have this opportunity to own another property in Paradise to share with our friends and guests. ( our new friends)

Jeff and Bev live part time in their original home in Coronado, Ca. We are avid boaters. We have just gone from racing Sailboats to a more relaxed life of Power Boaters with our Beneteau Swift Trawler, Destiny. Faster than sail and our cocktails don't spill. We are members of the Coronado Yacht Club and have served on the BOD of our club. I (Bev) have been involved in the Real Estate Development or Financial business during my entire career. Even though I say I'm retired, I just keep finding wonderful opportunities to explore. While Jeff is also retired from the Software business, he is more active than ever in consulting/owning wine related ventures, including his latest...furniture made out of wine barrels! Yes, we are busy, but we have found our "place" to relax. We enjoy the serenity of our island,Kauai and the friends we have and are making here are the "best". We hope you join us and make a memory to last a lifetime, Mahalo, Bev & Jeff

Wonderful Vacation Cottage by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Turtle Cove cottage is a delightful home in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood. It is fresh, clean, updated and tastefully decorated. As soon as we walked in we felt right at home. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance, as well as two beaches. We loved eating outside on the wraparound porch and the lounge chairs were a great spot to relax. The fans keep the cottage cool, and there are modern air conditioning units for use as well. The kitchen is very well equipped and even doing dishes is enjoyable when you can look out at the ocean through the kitchen window. (There is a dishwasher, too!) We would definitely recommend this property, and are looking forward to coming back next year!

Kauai Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Turtle Cove Cottage-it was a very clean, comfortable, nicely decorated 2 bedroom place w a fully equipped kitchen and a great porch along the front & side of the house! The cottage has everything you need, including chairs and towels for the beach. It's in a great location w several grocery stores close by, beaches, restaurants etc and the office can help w any issues that come up. We can't wait to return to Kauai and will definitely stay @ Turtle Cove Cottage again-we loved it! PS The Frommer's travel books in the cottage were a great help in deciding how to explore all of Kauai!!

Spotless and Beautiful Vacation Home in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

This little vacation cottage is absolutely wonderful. Everything about it is positive. It is a perfect place to relax and see the sights of Kauai. It is clean, cozy, comfortable, modern and nicely located for a south shore respite.

The kitchen has brand new appliances. The furniture is all in great condition. The linens are plentiful and clean. Even the artwork on the walls is tastefully done, with color matching matting and tropical frames. You can tell this home is loved by its owners and not just a place for people to rent in a resort. If I could sum it up in a phrase: All the class of a nice hotel and all the convenience of a well-appointed home.

The location is a short walk to the lawn of The Beach House restaurant, where sunset viewing is a very popular evening activity. The house has peak-a-boo views of the ocean from the kitchen and lanai. It is south facing so take that walk to Beach House for the full sunset experience. An entrance to Baby Beach is just a few houses down the street to the east. The cottage is on a street with several multimillion dollar homes. You can trust the photos on this listing, they are accurate - maybe the sky isn't quite that blue, but the interior is really bright and airy. The only drawback to the private, quiet location is that you will likely need to drive to dining or shopping. That's true for much of Kauai in any case. It is spread out and requires a car. Make your mai tais and pupus at home and problem solved.

I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone looking for Poipu and 2 bedrooms. It lacks nothing. I wish I could stay here for weeks and weeks!

I've posted this review on HomeAway as well, though I found the property here on VRBO. I think they are the same.

Wonderful Cottage with easy access to kid friendly beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Turtle Cove Cottage for 6 nights in July. The best part of our stay was the proximity of the cottage of Baby Beach. With two young children, the beach was perfect, especially in the mornings when the tide was lower, for our kids to play in the ocean without us having to worry about the tide. The beach has very small waves, and two little pools with no waves at all. Our second favorite part of the cottage was the wrap around porch, where we enjoyed many meals (and afternoon reading/naps) with the nice ocean view (partially obstructed by the house across the street, but still very enjoyable).

The owner, Alan, was extremely helpful with the booking process and filling us in on details of things to see and do around the island. The cottage was recently remodeled with a modern kitchen and bathroom that really made our stay comfortable. The A/C in both bedrooms and the living room was also extremely helpful with two small children who need to take naps during the day. The cottage has all sort of gear (high chair, portable crib, beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment) that we took full advantage of. The Wi-Fi worked fine for us.

Only request, would have been for a king bed in one of the bedrooms, but we made due with the queen.

All in all, a wonderful place to stay in the south shore. Close to lots of beaches, food options, and definitely more sun than the north shore.

Lovely Cottage by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Turtle Cove Cottage for 2 weeks beginning April 1, 2013. The house was spotless upon our arrival and there were fresh tropical flowers on the dining table. The house was perfect for my 90 year old mother and me as she uses a 4-wheel walker and there is a ramp into the house and a step in shower. The house was very comfortable and the neighborhood was very quiet with just the occasional rooster crowing, but it did not disturb our sleep. This was an excellent location with two ocean views from the lanai. The only drawback was that the internet connection was by modem rather than Wi-Fi, but that wasn't a major concern - just wished I had my laptop rather than my tablet. The listing description was accurate and the rental agency was easy to work with. A check for the refundable deposit was waiting for us when we arrived home. We would stay here again and would also recommend this rental to our friends.
