Owner built and managed Balinese style stand alone cottage one block from the ocean and river. Ideal for couples who want to experience local life, and have easy access to Waimea canyon and the wide, unspoiled sand beaches of Polihale.
Surfers and people who like to be close to the beach; in amongst the locals; and away from the tourist centers, love this pad. Within walking distance (one block) to beach, the Waimea pier, the river and quaint town. Buy fresh fish and local produce from Ishihara's or the 'Big Save'. Enjoy a movie in an old fashioned movie house, browse a vintage store, see local art and enjoy a great cup of coffee. The Waimea pier affords wonderful sunsets and great night sky viewing.
Redwood cabin with loft bedroom (king bed), equipped kitchenette (stove, microwave, fridge, crockery, cutlery, pots and pans), bathroom, wide deck and a simple bbq. Cable and wireless. Car park. Safe, local neighborhood.
Easy access to hiking the many Waimea Canyon trails, and enjoying the beautiful sunny west side beaches of Kekaha, Polihale...snorkel at Salt Ponds and surf with the locals at Pakala. Forty minutes to popular Poipu Beaches. Fifty minute drive from the airport.
On Kauai a helicopter trip is a favorite with visitors as the beautiful Na Pali and its magnificent waterfalls can only really be seen from the air. The magnificent Na Pali can also be accessed by hiking or taking a catamaran picnic/snorkel or sunset cruise. Dolphins abound and in the winter whales breach, tail slap and enjoy Kauai's waters as they mate and calf. You can also bike down the canyon...zipline...horse-ride...kiyak to (email hidden)untain tube...surf...and of course soak up the wonderful warm weather and enjoy an abundance of excellent beaches that are good for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, walking, relaxing...
Limited local bus routes that run north from Lihue to Princeville and Hanalei and run south to Poipu and west to Kekaha. Renting a car is advisable.
Check in after 4pm and check out before 11 am.

My husband (we got married while in Kauai) and I loved our stay here at this little rustic home. It felt like our own private oasis. We didn't get a chance to meet Neil & Sharon in person, but they made everything easy for us & seemed pretty laid back. We could definitely do without all the chickens/roosters and their early morning competitions, but they are everywhere you go on the island. If you are looking for a condo that is manicured, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a local house amongst the local people, this will be perfect for you, like it was for us. It was wonderful & we hope to stay here again in the future. :)
Thank you Neil and Sharon, for sharing your adorable home near the beach. We felt so comfortable and relaxed there. The town of Waimea has such a warm feel to it and the locals are so welcoming. The house has everything you would need and more. The loft area where the bed is cozy and cool in the evening due to good ventilation. My only suggestion is earplugs for the roosters, but you will need them wherever you stay on Kauia. A sling shot might be fun too. :)
Neil and Sharon left a list of fun things to do around Waimea and checked in via text message. They were very friendly and willing to help if we needed anything. The cabin was beautiful and very secluded. The bed was VERY comfortable and having a shaded porch was really a benefit. The hammock was in use every day we stayed there. The local Ishihara Market was convenient and the people that worked there were very friendly. Convenient location for hiking the Canyon and getting to Hanapepe and Poipu. Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper (roosters).
We had an exceptional time in the Waimea cabin! After some flight drama getting us in a little late, we were thrilled to find fresh flowers and cold beverages waiting for us when we arrived. The cabin was exactly as we expected with essential kitchen utensils and a great setting for relaxing (logged many lanai hours). We made ample use of the charcoal grill and stove top to keep our overall dining costs low. The neighborhood was charming with a couple of markets, restaurants, a bank, and the ocean within walking distance. Highly recommend some poke from Ishihara; made for great take-away lunches for excursions. Waimea is certainly on the quieter side of the island, which is what we were looking for. We didn't require much attention from Neil and Sharon, so we didn't cross paths too much, but Neil did check in a couple of times with some good insider info of how to enjoy the island. We had so much fun and would go back in a heartbeat!
What an amazing place! A perfect little cabin next to the beach in a peaceful and quaint part of Kauai. Neil and Sharon were great, attentive and welcoming hosts who made the experience so easy and enjoyable. This is highly recommended for anyone looking for a nice cozy and safe place with a 5-10 minute walking distance to great restaurants, long stretches of beach, historic town and market. Coming back to the cabin after a long day of exploration makes it all the more comforting.
Location: The location of the house is fairly good. Although it’s a bit far away from the airport (~50 min), it is in between the poipu beach and the north shore attractions. It is also very close to the salt pond beach and the Waimea Canyon. There is a beach right by the house too, but since it’s where river and ocean meets, the beach is not ideal for snorkeling or swimming for us. The house is within walking distance of a couple of grocery stores and restaurants, which is very convenient.
Hosts: The hosts are excellent! Neil is very knowledgeable about local events, attractions and restaurants. He’s very friendly and offered helpful advice on what to do and where to go.
The House: the house is clean, and the loft is lovely. Bath towels are clean. There are a variety of kitchen supplies. There’s a cute black outdoor cat that meows at you when it’s hungry. Very cute house in general.
Overall it was a good stay.

Über den Gastgeber, Neil And Sharon
Thirty year resident of Kauai who has built various simple Balinese/Polynesian/ Swiss Family Robinson style timber homes in beautiful island settings.
First came to Kauai in 1980 as part of long world wide surf odyssey - was on his way to Australia, but fell in love with the island, the way of life and spirit of aloha.
Met South African born wife, Sharon, in 2003 on the island. They married on the beach in Poipu in 2005.
Both love the island, love hearing the varied fascinating stories people live, and both love to read and travel!
