2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

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. Enjoy the 2 master suites with plush king beds, flat screen TVs, pedestal tub, and outdoor garden shower, and full size front load washer and dryer. 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!). The sound system through out the living area as well as the lanai is set up for surround sound TV watching, listening to Pandora, or you can wirelessly listen to your own music collection from your smartphone.

About Karen Olson

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 is a plein air (outdoor) painter, and you can see her work at www.kauaipainter.com.

Karen Olson purchased this house in 2012

Why Karen Olson chose Kauai

Perfect location and an incredible beach house.

What makes this house unique

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.

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!

Perfection in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

This is what results when you combine great taste, a sense of place and 25 years of home-building experience. This beautiful Hawaiian plantation cottage is situated 1 block from the ocean with nothing between you and the sand and sunsets. The two king bedrooms share no common walls. Two beautiful showers inside with river stone floors and rainfall showers, and one private outdoor shower. A kitchen equipped with everything you need. A tech-lovers AV system with outdoor sound on the huge deck. There's even a hot tub around back! This was truly one of the nicest homes we have had the privilege to rent.

Kauai diamond

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautiful and there is obvious pride of ownership and charming details throughout. The kitchen is stocked with every imaginable culinary device/utensil needed for any creation. Everything is of high quality from the furniture to the dishes. We spent the week on the porch with the beautiful doors wide open. The neighborhood is residential and quiet. There is a sports bar/restaurant whose activities can be heard (cheers from a game etc) but this was not a bother and never noticed past early evening. We enjoyed seeing sea turtles every day either in the waves or sleeping at the beach. This place is a real gem and I would definitely recommended it to anyone.

Perfect House in the Perfect Location

This was our second stay in Karen's beach house. Location can't be beat, and the house meets and exceeds all expectations and needs.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Let me first start off by saying that getting a 5 from me is a big deal! I don't give 5 Stars very often. Great job at this property.

The Olson's are locals and have poured their hearts and souls into this property. I mention local because I strongly believe that owners versus managers do a much better job. I can tell that the Olson's have thought of everything and want your stay to be 5 Stars! Thus the rating.

The details in Construction are top notch. Brent is a great builder. The amenities are great and you can tell that they didn't pinch pennies. They thought of everything you could possibly need.

The location is excellent and the view of the beach from the porch is great. I sat there for many days. Hopefully no one builds in front of them!

The only word of caution I have is Air Conditioning and Roosters. To be fair most homes on the island don't have air conditioning but for those that have medical ailments that could be an issue. The roosters also start up first thing 4am in the morning but again to be fair they are all over the island. We got used to it and since we are from California getting up early wasn't a big deal.

We plan on staying here again. Great job. Loved it.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely crafted and cared for beach cottage is amazing in every way. It is in top condition, clean, pleasantly decorated, and stocked with all of the amenities that you'll need in the kitchen, plus linens, plus for the beach (chairs, ice chest, totes, towels). We spent many of our afternoons sitting on the lanai with a view of the ocean, listening to our favorite music on the surround sound system with the outdoor fans cooling us off. It was hard to go anywhere when you have everything you need right there. It's a short walk down the street to Poipu beach, and walking distance to a couple of nearby restaurants. We've rented other places on the island, but this one tops them all. The only problem was leaving. Thank you to Karen and Brent for sharing their slice of paradise with us!

Stunning Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This house has to be one of the best designed, best built homes... Well, ever. The layout is optimal for two couples. The kitchen is perfectly equipped. Everything is spotlessly clean. The location is just off Poipu Beach, and you can see the ocean from the living room and lanai. The lanai itself is lovely with pull down shades and great furniture. There are beach chairs and umbrella and a cooler to use. The decorating is neutral with pops of color from Karen's paintings! I loved the sand and blue Fiesta Ware dishes. I really can't think of anything to complain about (OK, maybe the occasional local rooster at 4am, but that's part of Kauai charm). You won't go wrong renting here, I would recommend without reserve.

A hidden gem is the tour at the Allerton Garden. It's worth the price, beautiful, and nearby.

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.
