Wailua Riverside Cottage, a perfect place to experience the real Kauai in a residential setting with peak views of the Wailua River and located a block from Wailua Beach made famous by Elvis Presley starring in the movie Blue Hawaii when he and his New Bride rode horses on Wailua Beach!

Wailua Riverside is a tree top cottage, furnished Hawaiiana style, fully equipped kitchen, master bedroom with a new memory foam queen bed, den with TV and DVD player and a new full size sofa sleeper; as well as, a covered lanai offering outdoor dining. Wailua Beach is a block away and the sound of ocean waves hitting the beach will lull you to sleep each night. From your bed or lanai, watch as breathtakingly beautiful pink skies form through swaying coconut trees at sunrise.

Special Features!

2 Paddle Boards

2 Single Kayaks

1 New Double Kayak

All fully equipped, you can take them right off the dock just steps from the Hideaway. *Value: $80-$100 per couple.

Amenities: satellite TV, DVD player and VCR, linens, washer / dryer, gas BBQ grill, beach gear including snorkels, fins, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, beach towels. An added bonus is air conditioning, making a vacation in the warmer months more enjoyable.

Located at the Sacred Wailua River, where only the ancient Hawaiian Royalty were allowed to visit, Wailua Riverside is a two minute walk to an awesome eight-mile shoreline of uncrowded, sandy beaches. You are steps from a dock where you can launch your own kayak unto the Wailua River to explore and find the trail to Secret Waterfalls, one the top 10 things to do on Kauai. Water skiing, Wakeboarding, and Speed Boating are also available from the same dock.

Within a mile you will find: Wailua Beach, Ancient Hawaiian ruins; a Hawaiian village; Opaeka’a Falls; Lydgate Park offering protected ocean swimming, a 2.2 mile jogging trail and Smith’s Tropical Paradise offering one of the best island Luau’s. Grocery stores, souvenir shops and most of the island’s restaurants are available within a 3 mile radius. Further up the road is Kauai’s Hindu Monastery, an incredible place, set in an absolutely idyllic environment next to the Wailua River and a stupendous waterfall, a must see!

The airport is 6 miles away, the nearest town is Kapaa just one mile away and the road does not go all around the island which makes this property ideal. You can drive north or south and return to a location central to the island.

Minimum stay is 3 nights; except for Holidays, when there is a minimum stay of 7 nights.

*Rate per night based on season plus Hawaii taxes, outclean $156.25, damage protection $49, admin fee $35

***Trip Advisor*** We just returned from five days at Wailua Riverside Hideaway also known as Kauai Calls! Set Your Heart Free It is a delightful four room efficiency on the Wailua river, on the east coast of Kauai. Full kitchen, fantastic elevated covered lanai. The place was squeeky clean, bright and airy to take advantage of the trades. Quiet, secluded and private, the lovely vacation rental has it’s own carport, access to full size washer and dryer, and something you seldom see, a modern efficient air conditioner (but with the trades, you don’t need it). You can even watch satellite TV if you just can’t let it go. There is a great collection of DVDs and VHS movies and lots of books. Candace has provided every type of recreation equipment you might need for the beach or the river, including a two place Ocean Kayak, paddles and PFDs, and a small dock to launch right on the tranquil river. Everything is nearby and yet you hear nothing at night but an occasional gecko, rooster, or the soft soothing music of the distant waves in Wailua Bay. Lydgate park is less than five minutes and is the perfect place to introduce the ocean to your children. Calm, protected, warm waters with full lifeguard service, facilities and plenty of parking. A great place to walk or run in the mornings or evenings. Candace is a gracious hostess who allows you to be you. You have a completely private entrance, and yet she is available if you need her. She is the perfect kind of person to host such a place. She knows the island inside and out, real estate, culture, touristy stuff, and the best places to go. She is a transplanted kama aina who loves what she does. What a fantastic find after a couple horror stories on Kauai and other islands. My only concern is that too many other folks will discover this place and it will be hard to schedule. We are going back next year. Period. It is wonderful! Period.

About Candace Mack/ Kauai Calls! Set Your Heart Free

I have always known I would have a home on beautiful Kauai and dreamed of hosting guests who come to Kauai to fulfill their own life's dream. My favorite TV show when growing up was 'Fantasy Island' and here I am. Over the past 6 years I have come to realize that all that guests who have stayed at Wailua Riverside Hideaway became family the moment they arrived. It is you the guests who are the true stars in this Fantasy Island called Kauai - I look forward to greeting / meeting you! Mahalo nui loa! Candace, Owner

Why Candace Mack/ Kauai Calls! Set Your Heart Free chose Kapaa

I literally had a dream about this property! It was finding it that became the first part of an enjoyable personal journey. I look forward to telling you all about it!

Kauai Calls! Wailua Riverside Hideaway on the beautiful island of Kauai!

Mahalo nui loa,


Guestbook comments from the owner

“Thanks for the use of your Hideaway, we had a wonderful time, we got good use of the kayak and had the chance to try SUP. Our kayak trip along the NaPali coast was a highlight, long day but beautiful conditions. Lots of great eating spots and Donkey beach one of our favorite beaches! Thanks again!”

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay with Candace at the cottage and we are already looking forward to our return. The space is a perfect size for a couple and is lovely and well maintained. Having access to the Wailua River with use of the kayak and paddleboards is an awesome bonus. The central location makes access to both the north shore and the west side of the island a breeze. Most of all though, we appreciate the aloha that Candace brings to the stay. She is so lovely and welcoming with her smile and locally made leis. She is accommodating and helpful. She is one of our favorite treasures on Kauai!

Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodations! We booked four nights and would have stayed longer had the river cottage been available. Candace was a warm hostess welcoming us with fresh leis.

Peaceful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The Ohana is so cute and has everything you’ll need for the beach and paddling up to Fern Grotto. Some of our favorite moments were spent having coffee on the lanai at sunrise.

Things I would have liked to know. It’s not on the water, but there is a peek-a-boo view of the river and the ocean. The dock is just across the street for easy access to the river. The neighborhood can be quite loud on the weekends. New Year’s Eve was a given but Hawaiians do love their fireworks.

Over all, it was a great trip and we would go back.

Candace is a sweetheart and greeted us with a lei for each of us and a nice canvas bag.

No better place to stay on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying here. It's quiet and peaceful. Every morning we woke and from our bed we could see the sunrise and palm trees. When planning our return trip, we briefly looked at other places to stay, but couldn't find any that came close. Candace is a wonderful host and couldn't have been more gracious or accommodating. We will be back again.

Quiet, convenient, and overall amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This place is great and Candace (the owner) is wonderful. She is so accommodating and friendly. The cottage is perfect for a couple that wants have a romantic getaway but still be able to go out and enjoy everything the island has to offer. If we ever come back to the island we will definitely be staying here again.
