About Joan and Rick Shaw
We've lived on Kauai for almost 40 years, and our grandchildren represent the 5th generation raised on the island. Rick's grandparents came to Kauai in the early 1920's; his grandfather was a civil engineer in the sugar plantation industry. We've traveled the world, but can't imagine living anywhere else. Until recently, Rick was a part-owner of Coldwell Banker Makai Properties, a local real estate company, which he sold to Coldwell Banker Island Properties from Maui. Rick is now a broker with CBIP and Joan recently retired after a long career in education.
Joan and Rick Shaw purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Joan and Rick Shaw chose Poipu
Some of Rick's fondest memories include learning to swim, body surf, and surf at Brennecke Beach and Poipu Beach. We have classic photos of his mother swimming there in the early 1930's. Our own daughters spent their childhoods on these shores. We were thrilled to find this little house for sale in 2016, as we could see the potential for a perfect vacation home. We spent most of 2017 renovating it, and adding all the special touches we would want in our own home.
What makes this Cottage unique
The minute you kick off your shoes and enter Coco Cottage, you will feel yourself unwind and relax. With the French Doors open to the trade winds, ceiling fans gently turning, birds chirping outside, and the beach just steps away - you'll be in instant vacation mode. The kitchen offers everything you'll need to make a casual snack or turn out a gourmet meal. The king-size beds are of high quality and comfy, and plantation shutters ensure a good night's sleep. Both bedrooms have air conditioning units, giving you the option of a cool retreat on warm nights. The bathrooms are spacious and inviting, and the closets provide plenty of room for your belongings (bathing suit and shorts!). You can enjoy breakfast on the lanai, a run along the coastline, or a sunset picnic at the beach pavilion. We invite you to come, stay, and build special memories of your stay on Kauai.

Clean and new
Great property and well appointed! They thought of everything. It’s even better than the pictures.
We appreciate your positive review! So glad that you enjoyed your stay at Coco Cottage.
Everything and more!
We booked with Joan and Rick for one week. We brought our two young children as well. Their place was amazing! Not only was it neat and tidy, they thought of everything. From kids plates and cups, travel crib and even a portable speaker.
Mahalo nui loa. We're happy to hear that your whole family found Coco Cottage a perfect home away from home. We enjoyed hosting you and hope you will return soon.
Sanctuary of serenity... island style
The Coco Cottage was truly a vacation paradise for us. Everything was provided to have fun in the sun and the kitchen was fully stocked with the tools needed to create culinary masterpieces. The location couldn’t be better. We were right around the corner from the ocean where we got to see a beautiful rainbow and discovered a great snorkeling spot.
Thank you Joan and Rick for being so accommodating. We would definitely love to come back again.
Sharing Coco Cottage with such lovely and appreciative people makes us happy. We agree that it is a very special spot. Come again soon and plan to stay longer. A hui hou (until next time).
