About Bruce Fehring
We are Bruce and Cyndee Fehring, owners of the 7.6 acre property on which Twin Hearts cottage is located. We moved to Kauai from the Northeast 30 years ago, and have raised our family and created a wonderful life here. We designed and built Twin Hearts in 2005. We welcome guests to come and enjoy this slice of Paradise.
Bruce Fehring purchased this Cottage in 1987
Why Bruce Fehring chose Kilauea
We chose this property because of it's perfect location, central to the North Shore, but not so far north as to not be within easy striking distance of the entire island. Up and out of the tsunami zone, we enjoy the weather here. Lovely ocean beaches, enough rain to keep everything green and facilitate the occasional stunning rainbow, but not so much rain as to be problematic. PLUS, we can walk to beautiful, remote, uncrowded Kahili-Quarry Beach!
What makes this Cottage unique
Privacy, privacy, privacy...not to mention the interesting and unique architecture and fantastic new hot tub. Also, we reside nearby and are here in case some special need arises.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This was the most private and rustic setting we have ever experienced . The location is ideal and the owners are wonderful people .
Real Farm Life on Kauai
This place is absolutely amazing! The location is far away from any tourist traps and still close enough to Princeville and Hanalei Bay if you want the shopping, restaurant and beach experience (although it is walkable to one of the most beautiful little secret beaches so you don't even have to go that far). Kilauea is the cutest little town where you will find organic little markets, the best bakery and Hawaiian restaurant as well as great shopping and gallery places.
As to the cottage, it is extremely beautiful! The architectural design and interior of the cottage blew me away - the view with the big windows, the quiet bedroom and the big skylight - it's just a really smart design. We were there during a really hot week, it didn't even rain, so without AC it got too hot for us and the little kids and we had to get out most of the day - which we would have done anyways. Both beds, the king and the pull out, were very comfortable and we all slept great. The outdoor shower and hot tub are a real treat!
As the description of this place makes clear, the cottage is on a organic working farm - we enjoyed their pineapples, papayas, bananas, lilikoi and even homemade fresh popsicles! The farm also comes with a few animals. You will be surrounded by cats, dogs, geckos and mosquitos. Thankfully our kids were very entertained by the cats and happy to take care of them (seems like only Curly is supposed to be there but I guess the food has been attracting other hungry cats). Unfortunately, the three farm dogs gave our little ones and even my husband quite a scare when they ran up to them barking and fletching their teeth one day - maybe we should have asked for an introduction to the dogs with the owners bc it seemed like the dogs saw us as intruders. Also don't leave precious things out on the lawn - the dogs might snatch them.
It is very private and serene although the owners did invite us to join some of their private community events (like softball and poker!). We felt very welcome and had a relaxing time even though it is clear that this is a working farm with everyone being very busy! You can feel lucky if you get to stay there - this is truly a special place and you won't forget your time there! Mahalo for opening your space to us!
Private, Quiet, Location
Great property; great owner communication; very quiet and Unique. The open style atmosphere of the building allowed for great airflow cooling the building sufficiently at night without AC. The bed was super comfy!
The mornings we arose to the sounds of many different tropical birds; which was always pleasant.
There were a few small lizards and ants in the cabin; but they did their own thing for the most part. Some mosquitoes on that area of the island made eating on the lanai a bit difficult; so we opted to eat most meals inside.
Curly the Cat who lives on the Lanai was a delight. Very friendly and talkative; as Cat people we loved seeing Curly each day.
We stayed busy enough on the island that we didn’t get to try the hot tub or kayak; however we did enjoy using the coolers, beach towels, washing machine, beach umbrella and gas grill.
Overall it was a great stay!
We are always happy to hear about yet another happy guest experience.
We do put out ant traps and succeed in keeping them at bay. Geckos are everywhere on Kauai except places that pour on the poisons; we run an organic farm and prefer not to create a toxic environment. Guests are advised to bring their choice of insect repellent...mosquitos exist everywhere on the island after periods of rain, and they tend to zero in on newcomers.
Come enjoy Kauai and stay in a private quiet location within walking distance of a secluded beach!
The Twin Hearts cottage couldn't have been better if it tried as a honeymoon getaway. Bruce and Cyndee have a beautiful location that is tucked away from tourists and traffic. The stars at night are breathtaking, and the geckoes are friendly. : ). We left the windows open 24/7 which kept the cottage nice and cool at night, and enjoyed the lanai during the hottest parts of the day. I would recommend the Twin Hearts as a perfect place to stay for anyone seeking a private, romantic getaway. Thank you Bruce and Cyndee!
Wonderful to have hosted you and your bride on your honeymoon. Happy that you thoroughly enjoyed the Twin Hearts cottage, and I look forward to having you back on one, or another, of your anniversaries :)
Mahalo nui loa, a hui ho,
Bruce and Cyndee
Beautiful, peaceful place surrounded by nature.
Everything was perfect!! We loved that part of the island and the cottage was ideal!! Thank you for sharing paradise!!
Happy to have contributed to your memorable vacation. When you return, please be sure to try and book at least 3 months in advance to have the greatest chance of availability. We occasionally have slots open from immediate to that 90 day window, but your chances of securing firm dates as we close in toward the present become slimmer and slimmer. Thanks for being considerate guests and see you next time around!
'Twin Hearts' vacation rental 'homestay' cottage is a wonderful private new one bedroom, one bath handcrafted rental honeymoon cottage on our 7.5 acre Kauai North Shore estate and farm parcel. The handcrafted cottage has colorful garden views and a sweet hot tub, as well as close beach proximity, a scenic walk away.
Our guests adore staying here, including many repeat visitors.
This private homestay cottage is an exquisite, architecturally interesting, sustainable redwood home with lots of special features and privacy, about 200 feet (and lots of hedges and trees) from our home.
The cottage is accessed via a 250 foot long rolled gravel driveway from the paved cul-de-sac road.
The cottage is comfortably and tastefully furnished, island style, with a hand-carved king sized poster bed with soft cotton sheets in the bedroom, a tiled bathroom, and a full-on entertainment center with satellite TV, DVD, and CD stereo. Furniture and furnishings are oriental and island-style, with some antiques and original art.
For those who enjoy using the internet, we offer high speed WI-FI.
As a special perk, the cottage now comes with a Tandem Kayak, complete with paddles, backrests, life preservers and car roof rack, perfect for jungle river adventures on Kauai's numerous waterways. That's WAY fun and easy, even if you have never kayaked before!
In addition to the inside full bathroom, there is a hot and cold outdoor shower for washing the sand off when returning from Kahili-Quarry beach, which is just down the road, or any other one of the 10 world class beaches nearby.
Consistent trade breezes keep you cool and refreshed although, to be on the safe side, we have installed a decorative tropical ceiling fan in the bedroom.
There are a myriad of world class beaches close nearby. Kahili Quarry Beach is within walking distance, or you may zip down with your rental car. Kalihiwai Beach and the trailhead to Secret Beach are just 6-7 minutes away. Also nearby are Anini Beach, Hideaways, Waiakalua (wanna be all alone on a tropical beach?) and the scenic Kilauea Lighthouse.
When looking at a map of Kauai, use the Kilauea Lighthouse as a locator- it is the northernmost point on the island, and your cottage is about 1.5 miles to the southeast. The location is convenient- close to restaurants, bakeries, 2 farmer's markets each week, and fun shopping. It is an easy drive further west to Princeville (10 minutes) or Hanalei (15 minutes) yet not far the other direction to the East and South sides and to Waimea Canyon on the West side.
So let's see... ocean views, mountain views, private hot tub, acreage privacy, beach proximity, wireless high-speed internet access, a tandem kayak, laundry, and a stunning, affordable handcrafted cottage. It doesn't get better than this. Come to Kauai and enjoy it in class at our private cottage!
