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.
Das Cottage hatte alles was man braucht zum Kochen odee fürs Strandleben. Zwei Katzen gehörten auch dazu, die gedüttert werden müssen.
Das Cottage war umgeben von Rooster die am Morgen früh geschriehen haben,
I had an incredible experience staying at Neil and Sharon's Waimea cabin. It just can't be beat in terms of proximity to all things West Side and South Shore. I was welcomed by Sharon with fresh flowers and a thoughtful gesture: a bottle of champagne to celebrate my solo honeymoon. Tropical Depression Kilo was stewing about the day I arrived, and I really appreciated Neil encouraging me to stay in touch with them in order to arrange for my safety should it have developed into something more significant. As a solo traveler, this felt particularly kind. I will always remember my time in your spot on beautiful Kauai. Mahalo, Neil and Sharon!
Host was available by phone when we landed and told us our place was ready for us to move in. There were goodies in fridge when we arrived and fresh flowers all around. Host provided needed information on local sights and shopping. Very helpful. Home was equipped with beach equipment that we used. Very nice experience.
Neil came round soon after we arrived and told us of the local community and things we should see.
Area was great - close to a wonderful local store and also the beach.
A good low key alternative to the more upmarket Poipu area.
We spend five nights on Kauai and we loved it. Neil and Sharon had some good tipps and the small supermarket around the corner has everything you need and some of the best Poke
The cottage was ideal for my needs. I could spread out there in privacy, and walk to town in a few short minutes. I enjoyed star gazing off the balcony and hearing the waves crash during the night. Took a naps in the hammock. It's rustic, but perfect island lodging if you're not looking for a resort atmosphere. You're in a working class neighborhood; the neighbors said "Aloha" and smiled. But, bring ear plugs for when the roosters get going. The little black cat was friendly and good company too. Excellent value.
Neil sent welcome mails, stayed in contact - explained a lot, was a hilarious host!
Did everything to make us feel good and to make our stay an unforgettable experience!

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!
