Spend your vacation on the beautiful, sunny South Shore of Kauai in Poipu. Poipu is home to some of Kauai's most beautiful beaches, golf courses, and world class restaurants. Also, Poipu is equal distance to the North Shore of Kauai and the West side of Kauai including the Wiamea canyon( the 'Grand Canyon ' of the Pacific). Spend lazy days at the beach or look for adventure. You will love our spacious, airy, large unit for two in a separate building, vaulted ceilings, laundry, wi-fi, Hi-Def Dish network and DVR with over 200 channels, king bed, huge lanai with teak furniture for outdoor living and BBQ. Distant ocean view, 10 minute walk to beach and restaurants of Poipu. Beautiful hardwood floors, granite counters, walk in shower with vessel sink in bathroom. Very quiet and private, unique setting on private estate with beautiful views of mountains and ocean. Beach supplies available. Biking and hiking nearby as well as some prime surf and snorkel/diving locations. If you like to have some space around you while on vacation and not in the middle of a high density resort local, our cottage is for you.

I am an artist, my husband is a realtor. We have two children, and horses who love to be fed carrots and apples. We have lived on Kauai for 12 years and can tell you where to go to have a great time while you are visiting.
shari pilaria purchased this cottage in 2005
We love living here as we are near all of what makes Poipu exciting but away from the crowded resort developements that offer little quiet or privacy
Banana tree cottage is in a private separate building on the second floor or my art studio. It is very quiet and not on top of other residences in high density developments. Each window offers either a view of fields and distant ocean or mountain views. We are close enough to walk down to the beach in about 10 minutes, but far away enough that you don't have to be in a crowded area - but a rural feeling area with horses and trees and and expansive lawn to look out upon. We have high quality bed linens and towels and have made very effort to make our vacation unit as nice or nicer than your home on the mainland so you can fully enjoy your stay on Kauai even if you rarely leave the cottage. Banana Tree Cottage is a B&B we offer a breakfast basket with local fruits and baked goods upon arrival.
I stayed at Banana Tree cottage for 1 week with my boyfriend and I couldn't ask for anything more perfect. Not only is the location close to everything but this awesome cottage became our sanctuary and our home away from home.
The cottage itself was extremely clean, comfy, welcoming and it has everything one can need like beach chairs, towels, beach bag, snorkeling gear, BBQ, washer, dryer, blender(for those pina coladas ;), etc.
Shari and Luis were wonderful hosts and not intrusive in the slightest bit. On the contrary, this cottage is very private and its the perfect place to enjoy quality time with you significant other, family, friends.
The location is fantastic also, its just down the road from the beach and 5-10 driving distance from all the shops and restaurants.
My only disappointment is that I couldn't live here full time and had to go back home. I 110% recommend this cottage to everyone and will be staying here again in the near future :)

My girlfriend and I flew over from Oahu for the weekend and absolutely fell in love with this place. So much better than a hotel or resort. The pictures don't do it justice and everything was just so much more than we were expecting. The unit was well maintained, clean and included everything needed to ensure a perfect island getaway.
The home is much better than we expected and were pleasently suprised to find it look exactly as the picture shows. We have been fooled by pictures before from our other trips. The home was spacious and quiet, and I believe it can comfortably fit 3 people. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed for use. A grocery store is about a mile away and you can walk to the beach and get there in 15 minutes. The patio was great to lounge in on as well and hopefully next time we visit we can stay here again.
We recently stayed at Banana Tree Cottage for a month and loved it! Shari and Luis were so welcoming and made us feel so at home. I loved feeding carrots to the horses every day, and they definitely enjoyed it. The home was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. It is a short 10 minute walk to the beach which we did every morning at sunrise and saw sea turtles, dolphins, whales and even some monk seals. We have always stayed in either a hotel room or a condo in the past but we loved Banana Tree Cottage so much we will definitely stay there again. There are wonderful views of the beautiful mountains, open land and also the ocean in the distance. We went to some great farmer's markets and got things to make salads and got some wonderful tropical fruits. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare things, but we also ate out a lot at all the wonderful restaurants. Thank you Shari and Luis for a wonderful stay, we cannot wait to return!
What a gem! The owners and the cottage are so welcoming. After a week at a resort on another island, this was the perfect vacation from the vacation. Quiet, secluded and comfortable in every way. Banana Tree cottage has everything you need for a couple of beach bums like us--great beach chairs, mats, umbrella, cooler bag, towels and more. Great cozy furniture, comfortable bed and lovely lanai outside with ranch views and the ocean in the distance. Close to Poipu beach and dining--loved Living Foods (a local Whole Foods-like market and cafe), Keoki's Paradise--sit on the less formal bar/entertainment side which has access to both the formal menu and the bar menu. Awesome Hula Pie!!! Brenneke's (unpretentious and good) and the Beach House for the sunsets (recommend reservations) are great. Poipu beach was great for snorkeling and views. Recommend the doors-off helicopter tour of Kauai. We used Inter Island Helicopters out of Port Allen 15 minutes away. Dont be shy abut exploring the rest of Kauai from Banana Tree. We traveled the entire distance and tried many beaches, those known and less known. What a fantastic island for discovery and renewal. Leave your alarm clocks at home when you come here--the roosters will get you up anyway on this island! Aloha!
The Banana Tree Cottage was really quiet and spacious. We loved to stay there. The upstairs apartment offers everything you need for a perfect holiday: a delicious welcome basket with fruits and banana bread, a very comfortable king size bed, a full equipped kitchen and a gas-BBQ, a big and good shower, washer and dryer for free usage, WIFI (a little low in the evening but no problem) and fantastic views over the ranchland with the ocean in the distance and beautiful sunsets from the lanai. The cottage is only a short drive away from all the Poipu Beaches and also near Koloa with a Big Save supermarket. It is also a good location to drive into Waimea Canyon or to the coastline in the West. We recommend the helicopter tour from Hanapepe / Port Allen Airport – an amazing experience! We also recommend warmly this accommodation. Shari and Luis are very friendly hosts. Thanks so much for the opportunity of a late check out – it meant a lot to us.
