This new custom designed Hawaiian plantation style cottage is located just off the Brennecke's beach side of Poipu Beach Park, with unobstructed views of the ocean and 100 steps to the beach!

This spacious house was designed and built in 2013 to be the perfect vacation retreat - its plantation style allows it to blend in with the historic neighborhood, while offering every modern luxury. Outside is a barbeque grilling area, a garden shower accessible from either the master bath or from outside, and under the Plumeria Tree is a landscaped 5 person hot springs spa hot tub.

The open plan great room opens up to the large lanai and ocean view with 22 feet of 8' high folding doors, and the 9 1/2 foot high walls, vaulted ceilings, large double hung windows, and ceiling fans keep the place breezy and cool. The kitchen is equipped with a full sized french door refrigerator, whisper quiet dishwasher, gas range, walk-in pantry, granite counters, open shelving, and fully stocked (even has a french press!).

Aloha! Brent, originally from Oregon, and I (Karen) originally from Ohio, both moved to Kauai in the early 1980's (when we were too young to know any better) met, fell in love, got married, and have been here ever since. With my design background and Brent being a general contractor, we began Olson Homes Inc. which is a design/build firm specializing in custom homes here on the south side. We live in Kalaheo, but ever since I came here and fell in love with Kauai, I dreamed of having a little place in Poipu, near the beach. I never thought it would happen, but this property kind of fell in our laps and my dream came true! And we set out to build our perfect beach cottage. We named it Ke'ola, 'the life', because we feel it represents the amazing quality of life that Kauai has to offer.

Karen Olson purchased this house in 2012

Perfect location and an incredible beach house.

We manage this rental ourselves, live in Kalaheo (15 minutes away) and Brent is usually working in Poipu - so anything that we have overlooked we can take care of immediately. Just call or text, and we will take care it.

Perfect Beach Cottage

We were at the cottage from 4/1-4/6, and I cannot say enough good things about the property or the location. The pictures truly do not do it justice. Karen has thought of everything...any little detail has been covered! You walk in and you just feel like you've arrived at your dream beach house. You are close enough to the beach to see the surf and hear the waves, but far enough away that you don't get the street noise. There is nearby shopping and we found the location to be very convenient in that you could do a day trip anywhere on the island and not feel rushed. We loved the place and can't wait to go back next year!

The only thing a little "odd" to me was that if you are tall then you are a little exposed in the master shower since the door leading outside faces the house behind it, but if you step into the outside shower (which is gorgeous with lava rock and orchids) instead you're all covered.

If you do end up at Kalapaki Joe's you've got to try the skinny mojito...cucumber and mint...who knew?!

Wonderful Stay in a Gorgeous Beach Cottage!

We just returned from a five week stay at this gorgeous beach cottage and from the moment we arrived we felt comfortable and at home. The cottage is exactly as depicted on the VRBO site and the reviews are all accurate. The attention to detail and the quality of the amenities make this a first class rental and we have already made plans to return next year. A car is a necessity on Kauai, but this cottage is so perfectly located that you can spend days without having to drive anywhere!

Awesome getaway

My husband and I recently stayed in this beautiful cottage during our first trip to Kauai. It was perfect for our private getaway. It would be great for two couples or a family as well. Lots of open space made even better by the folding doors that allow you to bring the outside in. It was clear the owners took great care to think of everything you might need when staying away from home. The house is beautifully constructed. You can easily walk to the beach for sunrise or sunset. We loved hearing the ocean and feeling the breeze on the lanai. The outdoor shower is fabulous!

This house was the perfect setting for our relaxing vacation. The owners have thought of everything and this extra care is shown throughout the house. We absolutely loved the folding doors that opened to the lanai. We also especially enjoyed our time relaxing on the lanai watching the ocean. The outdoor shower was wonderful to use when returning from the beach. They have thought of everything you need or may not have even thought of, when planning a day at the beach. We didn’t want to leave this house and plan to be back!

I recently stayed at this house with my husband and 3 year old. We loved the location and the house! It is walking distance from several beaches that we repeatedly visited during our 10 day vacation. In particular we loved the kiddie lagoon on Poipu Beach, which provides a sheltered area for young children to play without waves or rip tide. The house is ideally situated for exploring the north and south shore, and is easy to get to from Lihue. The house itself has several unique features that I would never have thought to look for in a vacation home rental, but which made our stay even more wonderful. The folding doors facing the beach are amazing, and provide a constant ocean breeze. Beach toys, folding chairs, boogie boards are all provided by the owners. There are indoor and outdoor speakers that allow you to play music during dinner and in the evenings. And the outdoor shower makes returning from the beach and rinsing off the sand a breeze, and allows one to shower in a truly beautiful setting. We will be back (hopefully soon)!

Ke'ola Beach Cottage is located smack dab in the heart of Poipu on little Pane Road, one of the last remaining 'old Hawaii' residential streets in the area. With nothing between the cottage and the ocean, 100 steps out the door is Brennecke's beach, famous for its perfect boogie boarding waves, and if you are looking for calmer water and beautiful snorkeling, just walk next door to Poipu beach park, always on the 'top ten' list of Hawaiian beaches. Full of hustle and bustle during the day, the beaches at night become a stunning quiet oasis - best place for a moonlit walk, or a picnic dinner by the water.

Ke'ola Cottage is located about 60 feet from the Poipu Kai greenbelt walking path. This path is beautiful lighted walkway connecting everything in the area - so within a ten minute stroll you can get to the Hyatt Regency and Shipwreck beach, the Sheraton, Marriot Waiohai, Kiahuna Plantation, Ko Kea Resort ( the old Poipu Beach Hotel), Poipu Kai, Poipu Shopping Village, not to mention dozens of restaurants. Tennis is right out your back door, and the Kiahuna Golf Course and Grand Hyatt Coarse are both about a 5 minute drive away. Don't forget to check out the National Tropical Botanical Garden, and on your way there stop by Spouting Horn for the gorgeous views and the best prices on Hawaiian jewelry and trinkets.

If you like farmers markets there are two GREAT ones during the week - first is the Koloa Sunshine market every Monday and noon sharp!, located at the Koloa ball park, and all the produce is grown here on Kauai. The 2nd is the Culinary Market on Wednesdays, 4:00 pm, at the Shops at Kukuiula, There is always live music, cooking demonstrations, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, as well as prepared food vendors. - make sure you buy a slice of pie from 'The Right Slice'! This is the 'happening' place on Wednesdays for locals and tourists alike. From Kukuiula Harbor, you can catch a trip to one of the more than 20 dive sites right off our south coast, or take it slower with a sunset or whale watching trip. Take it even more easy and schedule yourself a day at one of the several spas (Hyatt has my favorite!) in the area. Again, the cottage is in a great location - right next to the Koloa Heritage Trail, which you can follow with an interpretive map and learn the history of the Koloa and Poipu area.
