About Susan Hoerner
Charlie and I have been married for 51 years (whew!) and have two grown daughters. We divide our time between our cottages on Kauai and our house in Portland, Oregon. Charlie has retired from the high tech world where he was a consultant and trainer. I am a retired graphic designer. Now we like to hike and bike, read and travel.
Susan Hoerner purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Susan Hoerner chose Kapaa
We visited Kauai for the first time in 1996, absolutely loved it, and upon leaving fantasized about living here, if just for a short time. But unlike so many fantasies, this one came true. We rented Sunrise Cottage for 18 months and ultimately purchased the property, soon adding Moonrise Cottage as a second rental. The experience of being right on the ocean is like no other, we love watching the weather cross the sky, the colors and moods of the ocean change. The property is within easy walking distance of Kapaa Town, recently recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of America's prettiest small towns (Aug '13), and central to all the many wonderful things to do and see on the island. We love to recommend our favorite places to shop and eat, locally.
What makes this Cottage unique
The front lawn of Sunrise Cottage is situated to enjoy the unforgettable sun and moon rises over the ocean, which we celebrate regularly. We use the new seaside walking/biking path almost every day to walk or bike into town, to Kealia Beach or just for some exercise. The short three mile drive to Sleeping Giant Mountain hiking trail is one of our regular expeditions, giving great cardio and amazing views of the entire eastern shoreline of the island. Our sweet little neighborhood is quiet and tucked away yet convenient for shopping, services and for getting around the island.

A Dream Beach House
This beach house is so spectacular. It opens up right to the ocean with the add bonus of the walking/bike path and easy walk to town. The beach is just a short walk with soft sand and a swimming spot that is like a pool. The owner has a supply of everything you need to enjoy the beach. The house is fully stocked with everything you need plus with personal touches that make a rental a special place to be. The owner and employees are very attentive and easy to get in touch with. Such an easy place to rent.
It was such a pleasure meeting all of you and seeing you enjoy Sunrise Cottage so much! Beautiful family, I hope you'll return. Aloha, Susan
Our stay at Sunrise cottage was spectacular. Early morning sunrise on the porch was the most relaxing of our vacation. Centrally located in Kapa’a we had easy access to the North Shore and west to the Na Pali coastline. The cottage and properly was clean and all the amenities were provided. We loved our stay and would recommend the cottage to our friends and family. Thanks Susan and Charlie for a wonderful stay!
Thank you, thank you, Scott! You were great guests that we would welcome back any time! Your recommendation to family and friends is always appreciated!
The Sunrise cottage was a fabulous place to stay. There was a lot of room including the moonrise cottage in the back. The sunrises were beautiful. Kapaa is centraly located to the whole island.
Very nice Hawaiian house in a good, central location
A very good vacation house in Kauai. All 5 family members thought the house was perfect for our needs, was centrally located in Kapa'a, was very close to the ocean and had a nice walking path. Our property manager was responsive to our needs and even offered to dry our clothes when the dryer had issues (issues solved). We would go back.
We so appreciate you taking the time to write a review, we know how much other travelers learn from the experiences of others. And, thank you for taking such good care of the property... we hope you WILL come back!
perfectly lovely and relaxing cottage
our stay was perfect, the cottages (we rented both of them) were in excellent condition, clean, orderly, and in a perfect location across the small road from the ocean. We came to the island with our two grown children, their partners, and two grandsons age 9 and 11. Everyone loved the stay and the best part was the cottages and their location to the ocean and the town. This was our second stay and we will come again.
Annual family vacation
Location prefect. While my children and grandchildren were at the beach and exploring, the wife and I sat on the wonderful porch. We watched the waves roll in and enjoyed the gentle breeze. At night, while lying in bed we would listen to the waves as they crashed on the rocks. This was just a prefect house and cottage for our family of eight. Susan was great to work with and responded quickly to any questions. Dawn the property Manager was awesome, she even baked me Banana bread for Fathers day. It was a great stay. Steve C
