Guestbook comments from the owner
We had such an amazing family vacation. Such a beautiful home! Kids both said they were glad we stayed here and not at a resort. Hope to come again some day, we are all pretty sad to be leaving :(. Thanks for everything karen!

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 Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Just like the description, this beach cottage was the perfect vacation retreat. It has a great location. About a minute or two walk to the beach. Just a 5 minute walk to Poipu Beach. We snorkeled there several times and saw all kinds of beautiful fish very close to the shore.
The cottage has beautiful views of the ocean from the kitchen, dining room, living room and lanai. We loved enjoying our coffee and tea on the lanai every morning. It was extremely comfortable, immaculate, beautifully designed and constructed. We are a family of 4 and it was perfect for us. We appreciated all the attention to detail. It really made this a special place to stay. Looking at the photos, it's exactly as it is, but really even better in person. This home is so inviting and has such a good feel to it.
Some of our favorite things were, the cool folding doors out to the lanai, the lanai itself, the outdoor shower, the comfortable beds, the well equipped kitchen, the great swinging chairs in the living room (so comfortable & we each had our own to lounge on), and the beautiful artwork throughout the house.
Karen and Brent were responsive, accommodating and helpful. Brent was even so kind to drop off some bananas from their tree. I would definitely recommend this wonderful home to family and friends.

This home is immaculate and absolute perfection! What you see is what you get and then some. Everything you could need or want is in this home. The location is excellent and the beach is just a 2min walk. There are restaurants within walking distance as well. We had such an amazing time and wouldn't hesitate staying here again. Absolutely loved the cottage!!

PS…the outdoor shower is amazing!!

This is a wonderful place to stay in Kauai. The location is very good with the ocean just steps away. It is close to a resort area and shopping yet felt "away from it all". The spaces inside and out are so well designed that I took pictures to put in my dream house file! Karen and Brent were extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations and information about the area. It's really a 6 star property!

This home is exactly as pictured/described and more. You will not find a more suitable property for your relaxing Kauai vacation. We absolutely fell in love with this home and its perfect location, situated across one of best beaches. Our family stayed 8 days in this wonderful home. Our two teen boys enjoyed Brennecke's beach for the great waves and my husband and I were able to enjoy daily snorkeling just a few steps away on Poipu beach. It was great to be able to walk to the beach without having to lug a full day's worth of gear, knowing you could just walk back to the house for a snack or more sunscreen. We are so grateful to have found this beautiful property and would highly recommend this to anyone with discerning taste for beauty, comfort, and high quality accommodations.

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
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?!

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.
