About Diane & E.J. Olsson

We moved from Kirkland Washington to Kauai in make a lifestyle change and start Kauai Cove Cottages...which was our dream! We fell in love with Kauai in 1985 when we first visited the island on our honeymoon. We now enjoy living here with our son Erik.

Diane & E.J. Olsson purchased this cottage in 1998

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was more than what we expected and we honestly spent a lot of time here just because it was so easy to relax.

Clean, cozy, convenient!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is tucked away in a little neighborhood that makes you feel like you are a part of the town. It was so close to restaurants, shopping, and the beach. As soon as we walked in we were so happy with our choice of the cottage over a hotel. The owners keep it very clean and well equipped with the things you most likely will need during your trip.

We were out most of the day but when the night rolled around it was so nice to come back and relax in the cottage. The bed was very comfortable as well. We would recommend this to anyone!

Heavenly but hot

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is just as it appears and met all my expectations except one. It has air conditioning, but the air conditioner is about 2 feet wide and one foot tall. It is just not up to the task. I was asked not to run the air conditioner due to their high electric bills. When I came back to the cottage the air conditioner thermometer registered 92 degrees! I've been here for over an hour and it still registers 92 degrees!

Owner's Response: Problem solved! A/C broke down, guest didn't notify us till that evening. We relocated her to another unit she very pleased with and replaced the air conditioner with a new, more powerful one. We checked with the current guests and they are very happy with cooling... ( Especially since this has been one of the hottest summers on record!

The perfect little spot

  • 5 of 5

What a great time at Kauai Cove Cottages! EJ and Diane have really made the place so welcoming with lots of little extras (beach towels, cooler, beach chairs, and a very helpful local guide - plus a lot of other little things that just make you feel cared for). It was immaculately clean, super comfortable (the bed just envelopes you - super soft mattress and high thread-count sheets), and very quiet. There's a fridge and microwave and a hot plate, plus a coffee maker and plenty of dishes. TV, DVD player, and WiFi, too. The location was a great home base for all our exploration. It's a short walk to great shopping, a local foods market, coffee, and several local beaches. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful as well. We stayed in the Wild Orchid, which is the middle of a three-unit triplex. As such, we only had windows on two walls of the unit, but it was still very bright and airy. Noise from our neighbors was a non-issue. Thanks again, EJ and Diane, for a wonderful place to stay. You guys really do it right.

Great Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Plumeria for the first five nights of our honeymoon back in 2011 (I'm a perpetual procrastinator) and loved it. The cottage is clean and charming, and is at a great location for accessing many adventures on the south shore. The hosts were timely and hospitable in their communication with us. Definitely worth a re-visit.

Poipu Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at Kauai Cove Cottages. The property was well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. The close proximity to restaurants, shops, beaches, activities made the location ideal for our vacation. Being able to easily walk to eat, swim, or see turtles is a reasons for us to return for more in the future.
