Just steps from the water, Sunrise Cottage is the quintessential oceanfront beach cottage - comfy furniture, wide plank wood floors, warm salt air breezes, and ocean views to soothe the soul. The front porch is a favorite spot for watching the ocean's changing moods (and whales during winter months). A blend of east coast Cape Cod and Hawaiian plantation styles, our vintage cottage is spacious and light with simple furnishings - everything you will need for a relaxing, rejuvenating Kauai get-away.
An exciting NEW feature of the property is the Seaside Walking and Biking path that begins just 2 blocks to the north, following the coastline into Kapaa Town and beyond for stunning views.
Just in front, less than 30 steps from the front porch, is the soft sand and warm waters of ''Baby Beach,'' one of the safest swimming beaches on the island for small children. Here you can enjoy our kayaks, snorkeling, or even SCUBA for lobster in season.
The quiet waterfront setting is just a short stroll from Kapaa, with charming shops and award-winning restaurants.
French doors and large picture windows in the living/dining room afford panoramic ocean views. Two of the three bedrooms have queen-size beds and the same unforgettable ocean view. The third bedroom, furnished with two twin beds, is a quiet retreat.
The recently remodeled kitchen now offers cooks as well as microwavers a spectacular ocean view. The stainless steel counter top, checkerboard floor, and glass front cabinets are reminiscent of vintage cottage decor. The upgraded appliances and granite-topped peninsula make it a cook's dream.
Our small, quiet vintage Hawaiian neighborhood is less than 1/2 mile south of Kapaa, You can easily drive or walk to town, nearby beaches, shopping and services. Rent a bike to enjoy our new seaside walking/biking path that runs along the shoreline, north past Kapaa, along vista bluffs and beaches. Or enjoy our double kayak from the cottage, or boogie boarding, body surfing and surfing available at Kealia Beach (3 miles to the north). Kayak up the Wailua River (3 miles south) and hike to a hidden waterfall. Kapaa offers some fabulous restaurants...start your day with Kauai coffee at Java Kai or fresh island fruit and banana macadamia nut pancakes at Olympic Café and end it with dinner at Bushido Sushi (best on island) or fresh caught fish at Eastside Café, to name a few. One of the island's best hikes, Sleeping Giant, is 3 miles away, with magnificent views of the whole eastern coast. Sitting on the front porch contemplating the ocean is one of the most popular activities of visitors.
