We loved this little cottage. It has the feel of a traditional, simple, yet very well appointed beach house. Our family of 3 (and a 4th for the last couple days of our trip) had plenty of room and one bathroom worked just fine. The screened in porch was great for early mornings and evenings hanging out.
Plenty of beach toys and a handy wagon to tote them the 1 1/2 blocks to two beach options. Great place to stay!
Great location with short walk to the beach. House well stocked with everything you need. Would definitely stay here again!
Beautiful house, spotless and adorable. Best access to Poipu and Brenneckes. Would stay here again!!
This place is truly a treasure next to everything you need to see. We will be back fit sure; Thank you to the host for letting us spend some time in this paradise nook!
Mahalo and aloha!
We couldn’t have asked for more. This place had everything you could need. Great location and wonderful home. Highly recommend
Always a nice stay at this cottage near the beach! Walked to the beach daily.
Just got home yesterday from an incredible 4 week stay at the Poipu Yellow Cottage after two years of planning! We were so very blessed to stay here! First, communication with owner Pam has been excellent! She is very helpful and gracious and gives prompt replies! The cottage itself is beautiful, very comfortable, and has everything you need. There is a grocery store, Big Save Market, just a short distance away in Koloa. But for major grocery shopping go to Safeway in Lihue. This comfortable cottage is only a few minutes walk to gorgeous Poipu Beach, as well as Brennecke Beach, and is a great location for the rest of the island. Take a couple mile walk to Shipwreck beach in the morning and enjoy magnificent sunsets at Poipu Beach in the evening! Swim and snorkel in the safe Poipu Beach bay. Very family friendly. Daily saw Green Sea Turtles and endangered Monk Seals on the beach. Saw Hump Whales breaching and spouting. Neighbors -- both vacationers but especially those who live there -- were very nice. We ate all our meals at the small table in the attached screened lanai just off the dining room. So enjoyable to sit there and is quite private. Enclosed shower in bathroom was large. Each bedroom has an air conditioner and the one we stayed in had a cozy king-sized bed and closet. Every room of the house except the bathroom has an overhead fan to keep air circulating. If we ever return to beautiful Kauai, this is where we would hope to stay! Thank you, Pam!
We loved Pam's home, outdoor shower, beach gear & proximity to Poipu beach. If you love the beach, Hawaiian sea turtles & Monk Seals, then this is the place you want to call home when you are in southern Kaua'i!
Pam was a pleasure to communicate with when we needed her.
Great location… beautiful walks, short stroll to a beautiful beach and quiet neighborhood.
The cottage has a lovely old Hawaii plantation style and oozes comfort and charm.
Images and description do not do this fabulous cottage justice. The kitchen is fully equipped and we 3 friends cooked almost each evening. The cottage is well sized and organized, separate washing/drying room, outdoor shower with beach gear provided. A cute patio, spacious dining & living room and well sized double bedrooms and bathroom. The house and garden were extremely clean. Located within a few minutes walk to a beach where turtles rest for the evening and seals take their naps. A restaurant/bar/deli place is also only a few minutes walk away which serves good food. We highly recommend this cottage and all 3 of us would stay there again.
Very comfortable. Charming! Close to the beach
This historic cottage is a wonderful place to stay because it is very private and quiet. The dead end street minimizes car traffic and car noise. It also provides a 2 minute walk to the beach. The cottage also provides lots of room to live. A great kitchen and a screened in porch for additional space and privacy. We will return again!
Great location close to beautiful beaches. House was well kept & had everything you would need.
The house is quiet, located 3 houses from Poipu beach, but away from the hubbub on the main street. Check in and instructions were easy and well organized. It was sparkling clean
Everything we needed was provided. It felt like home and we loved being there. Thank you, Pam.
As described..one block off of Brennecke's beach. Quiet neighborhood even though there were more rentals on the block. AC in bedroom, completely screened lanai but you will have a few bugs at least in the lanai as the door is not a snug fit but it does keep the skeeters out. Washer/dryer bonus...the host is nice enough to provide Kirkland brand products we brought our own as we do not like the Kirkland scent. Good stay.
We just returned from our stay in Kauai and we will be dreaming of our time there for years to come! This property was the perfect place for us to stay for us and our one year old daughter. The property was beautifully decorated and had everything you needed including beach toys and a beach wagon! Plenty of items to cook with as well! Additionally both the owner and property manager were very responsive. We experienced rather warm days while there and the AC units in the bedrooms worked just fine to keep the place cool. It's truly a half block from Poipu Beach which is especially a perfect spot for small kiddos due to the protected cove that makes the water calmer and it's rather shallow. Brenecke Beach is just as close and has bigger waves and is deeper. I cannot rave about this VRBO rental enough! It will only enhance your stay in Kauai!
I stayed here with a friend for a destination wedding that was happening down the street and the location was perfect! It is less than a five minute walk to the ocean and beaches where you can watch all the sea turtles come ashore or boogie board/snorkel alongside them. The outdoor shower and screened in porch were my favorite features about the house besides the location and ease of parking two cars behind the house. Even though neighbors are nearby it was a really peaceful and private location. The bedrooms are the only part of the house that have a/c units and provided excellent conditions for sleeping with white noise to drown out the rooster calls. The rest of the house could be cooled fairly quickly, by opening the windows/ doors (screened in) and making sure the many ceiling fans were running, allowing a nice breeze to go through the house. There is only one toilet, so keep that in mind when considering your group size/needs.
The kitchen had pretty much anything you can think of needing to use to prepare a meal at the house. And there are at least two restaurants within a five to ten minute walk from the house. I also appreciated all the lighting options, with dimmer switches in most of the rooms.
The property owner/manager was really communicative, and I appreciated them having a feedback form available to continue improving the experience at their home. I also made use of the yoga mat and hair dryer that was provided. I will definitely stay here again if my travels bring me back this way! Thank you!
Everything about this rental is wonderful!
It has plenty of room where the 4 of us enjoyed the screened lanai at breakfast, the outdoor BBQ area at dinner, the front room for playing guitar & talking, the front porch for morning coffee.. The decor is beautiful & in great condition, bedrooms have air conditioners & ceiling fans if needed & the outdoor shower is fun & refreshing!
Perfect location to beautiful beaches just a few steps away, places to explore & beach restaurant was a lot of fun too.
Would absolutely return here again & again!!
This property is well appointed, very comfortable and quiet. The location is superb. In less than a 10-minute walk you are on the beach where the sea turtles come up to rest at sunset and return to sea at dawn. We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend it to couples and small families.
What a charming and perfect Plantation cottage only 3 houses away from Poipu Beach! Hubby and I had such a great time. The location is perfect, the house is immaculate, clean and well equipped with everything you need, including all beach equipment with a wagon! I could go on and on but the best thing I can say is that we are already booked for next September here!
We absolutely loved this house, it is so cute and clean and a very short walk to the beach! Everything was so convenient! We did not want to leave and will for sure be staying at this house again! Love love love. The bedrooms were so comfortable with the ac units and fans. We couldn't hear any outside noise and were nice nice and comfortable. It was a perfect place for my husband and I and our two kids.
We had a wonderful time at the poipu beach house. The house had everything we needed for our family of three (my husband, myself and our two year old daughter). The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay with a little one: a pack n play crib, a booster seat, and wagon (which our little one enjoyed riding to the beach). The bathroom had a shower, which is great for us adults but our daughter is used to baths… no problem! The farm sink in the kitchen is perfect for bathing babies! The lanai was a great place to relax. The outdoor shower was perfect for washing the sand off after the beach and the shed had everything we needed for the beach (chairs, sand toys, snorkel gear). The location of this place was the BEST. Steps away from poipu beach which has an extremely baby friendly little cove, a park and sea turtles come up on the beach every night. We will definitely return with our little one again!!
We came here for our honeymoon after getting married on Maui and this little house was absolutely perfect. It was very clean and impeccably appointed with everything that we could ever need and then some. Our communication with the property owner was great. The location was perfect, walking distance to several food options and beaches. This little cottage was really right in the middle of everything happening in Poipu, but felt quiet and off the beaten path, just a tad. Everything there was very thoughtful, including extra beach towels, beach toys and even noise machines to help with the charming little chickens. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Absolutely perfect! Thank you so much for sharing your sweet little piece of paradise with us.
Incredible location that is 100 yards from beach with many local restaurant options just a short walk away. There was a great supply of beach gear in the garage and every need was though of prior and already in the house. It was also nice to have AC in the bedrooms to cool things down at night. We loved this house and had an incredible time in Poipu.
We absolutely loved our stay here! Proximity to the beach was fantastic, and some very fun nearby hiking trails available. The house itself is well appointed and very comfortable. So fun to see the turtles each evening and morning right down the street! Highly recommend this place!
Truly adorable cottage very short walk from beach. Very relaxing.
We absolutely loved staying at this house. The location can't be beat -- just down the road from the beach, but still a quiet neighborhood (if you don't count the chickens first thing in the morning!). A beautiful cottage and a great yard to relax in. It had all the amenities we needed, and we took advantage of the beach toys and snorkel equipment. The beds were very comfortable, and the AC units in the bedrooms allowed for a good night's sleep. This house was our first impression of south Kauai, and it couldn't have gone better. We can't wait to go back. I highly recommend it!
Pam and Gabby were fantastic hosts. The property is clean and kept in excellent repair. We really enjoyed walking to the beach in the morning and in the evenings. If you are looking for a peaceful place to relax the cottage should be on your list.
Beautiful and comfortable cottage steps away from the Poipu beach, with well stocked kitchen to make meals for the family. The screened lanai is our favorite place to hangout providing cool breeze throughout the day. Outdoor shower is a big hit. The out house is stocked with boogie boards, beach umbrella, chairs and life jackets, with washer and dryer to wash our swimsuits and towels after a day at the beach. The only small issue encountered are ants coming from the sink in the kitchen. We were able to address it by keeping the counter clean and dry after each use. This is our returning stay to the property and would love to visit again!
We are in love with Poipu, so for us to find this property that is a rock throw from our favorite beach, is simply amazing.
Property is well maintained, highly functional and kitchen is amazing!
Super awesome cottage steps from the beach. We had an awesome time!! Slice of paradise! Can’t wait to come back!
All of us loved our stay at this beautiful beach house. The beach is a short walk away. We snorkeled and saw sea turtles nesting on the beach. The area is safe and we walked to the beach at night to see a beautiful full moon.
Another wonderful stay at this beautiful and welcoming cottage! The honu and the monk seals were abundant evening and morning at the lagoon!
Hope to be back again next June!
We absolutely loved our stay here! Close to beach, well stocked with beach items. Mahalo Pam for sharing your Kauai paradise with us!
We absolutely loved our stay in this sweet yellow cottage amidst palms and ocean breezes. It was the ideal perch for our family of four, including our 4- and 7-year old sons, with the sun porch being the highlight - our kids loved reading and working on their scrapbooks on the porch, and eating fallen mangoes they’d found in the yard!
The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped and spacious, and the property had absolutely everything you’d want for kids on the beach, from toys to umbrellas to a wagon to transport it all!
THIS is why you rent a house instead of getting a hotel, friends. Heaven.
We loved our stay. Not ONE complaint. Perfect
We had a great time. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable.
We have stayed at the properties next door many times and over the years have wanted to try this place out. It's only a few steps from Poipu Beach. You can hear the waves at night. Pam has done a wonderful job of updating the space and appliances with everything you could need for an extended Kauai vacation . The cottage is charming, airy, and offers spots to sit together or to be on your own. We thoroughly enjoyed the screen porch and often ate outside on the patio. The beds are comfy and the room A/C keeps the sleeping spaces cool. This is a winner!
I was going to be selfish and not leave a review … because I don’t want any of y’all to know about this place and be competition for us to book again! This is an adorable, comfortable beach cottage with a perfect location! And it truly is well-appointed. We would load up the beach wagon in the morning (with provided umbrellas, beach chairs, beach toys, and our own snorkel gear) then head to the beach after a sunrise breakfast. We would play all morning (including snorkeling with sea turtles), then come back for lunch, leave the wagon in the shed for the next day, and head to some other excursion (paddle boarding, pickle ball nearby, hikes, zodiac tour, etc.). The restaurants nearby are excellent! We loved reading in the morning and playing games in the evening at every gathering location (outdoor pergola with lights, screened-in patio, living room). The owner was very responsive. We initially were trying to book a trip during COVID and she was very accommodating and understanding to us having to adjust our schedules. Our expectations were exceeded. Thank you!
Great house and close to beech.
The cottage is very charming and well equipped with virtually everything one needs. The location is fantastic, as it’s less than a block from Brennecke’s Beach (my favorite body surfing spot). Overall, a wonderful experience.
This home and location can’t be beat. Just one block from the beach and surprisingly quiet little neighborhood. We felt at home the whole stay. Thank you Pam!
Fantastic place to stay in Poipu beach. 1 block walk to the beach. Great places to explore- beaches, beach park, tidal pools. Minutes away from super kid friendly beach, snorkeling, bigger waves for boogie boarding. Restaurants close by also. Great area to jog, walk and explore. Pam’s cottage is lovely. Exactly as described and pictures. Open windows, turn the fans on and you will have cool breezes all day and all night. Lanai is a wonderful place to read. Kitchen is very well equipped. “Toy house” comes complete with beach toys, chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards. Also laundry which is key. Outdoor shower is great. Pam is a pleasure to communicate with and very responsive. Her info book has all you need to know. Couldn’t ask for a better place to spend our vacation.
We loved our stay here, this place is absolutely charming. Only a block from the beach and the hosts provide everything you need (toiletries, kitchen cookware/utensils, beach chairs and snorkel gear, etc.). I would happily stay here on my next visit—thanks so much!
This is our second time here and probably our favorite spot. Can’t beat the location and the cottage has exactly what you need … most importantly a private peaceful spot to relax.
House was awesome and right in the heart of poipu beach !
This lovely, clean, well appointed home located steps from the beach on a friendly neighborhood street was perfect for our family of four. Especially enjoyed the beach gear, full kitchen, and screened lanai. Thanks Pam for sharing your beautiful cottage. Can't wait until we can return!
Had a wonderful time. Cottage felt like home and we always looked forward to the comfy bed. Pam is responsive and caring. Will rent again someday for sure!
Awesome spot in poipu, right down by the beach. The air conditioning is only in the bedrooms but if you run them all day the place cools down. Overall awesome spot close to everything you need and a great host.
The cottage exceeded our expectations; it was beautifully decorated, and all amenities were provided. Luxurious towels, high-end appliances, and literally steps from the beach. We could hear the surf while sitting in the lanai. Highly recommended!
Everything about this home is amazing! Check in was a breeze and the home was even cuter in person than in the photos! The screened in porch is divine, the outdoor shower when used at night under the stars can't be missed, and everything was super clean. I also really appreciated the window AC unit when it was especially hot in the evenings. On top of that, the proximity to the beach can't be beat and all the amenities (wagon, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc) made our stay here better than we could have imagined. We had zero issues and Pam was a dream to communicate with. We can't wait to come back to Kauai and wouldn't hesitate to book this cute cottage again!!
We stayed in three places while on Kaua’i and this was our favorite! Great communication with host, gourmet kitchen, ac in the bedrooms, the most relaxing lanai, and lovely landscaped yard with palm privacy wall and dining patio. Loved the proximity to the beach and enjoyed some long walks through the neighborhood and along the edge of the ocean - so many sea turtles!! We were visited by many island animals including geckos, chickens, cats and egrets. Everything about this cute cottage was well thought out and made us feel like we were home. Would absolutely stay again!
Cute and comfortable cottage with everything you need (coffee, beach chairs, towels, etc.) close to the beach. I traveled with my sister, and we enjoyed the home itself--especially the screened porch--and its location, which was a short walk to the beach. I much prefer having the extra space and homey feel of a cottage like this one vs. a small hotel room. This place is well represented by the photos, and I'd stay here again when I return to Poipu.
We really enjoyed our stay at Pam’s place. It was so charming and perfect for our Kauai getaway! Would love to visit again!
You could not ask for a better rental in Poipu. It is three houses down from the Poipu Beach where Sea turtles lay on the sand and people snorkel. It is walking distance to a few restaurants. The rental itself is spacious with an updated kitchen. It has great outdoor space and a fully screened lanai. The bedrooms both have AC. Everything about this rental was perfect and I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We loved our stay at this cottage. The location was perfect for us, we walked to the beach and a few local eateries. The cottage itself was so Hawaiian! It had a well equipped kitchen so we could cook many of our meals easily. I loved that there were so many places to hang out, the Lanai was great, the outdoor table and the living area inside. There were two great surprises. The Mango tree which I enjoyed every morning for breakfast, and the birds!
We absolutely loved our stay! Location was perfect to walk to the beach, but quiet enough to relax. We spent a LOT of time in the screened in porch. Beach gear was a huge bonus, as was the outdoor shower. Would love to come back!
The house is well equipped and extras for a day at the beach. The screened in porch is great for hanging out in the evening.
We loved the proximity of this cute little cottage to the beach! Great amenities, including everything you might need for a day at the beach. Would definitely stay here again. Can't beat the location.
Our stay at this wonderful beach cottage was fantastic from start to finish for me, my wife, and teenage daughter for the week we spent on the island. Just as described - short walk to the beach, set up perfectly and the screened in porch area is the most wonderful place to sit and catch the ocean breezes in early in the morning before heading out to adventure and late in the evening upon return to relax. A short drive from Lihue with easy access to a Safeway on the way from the airport. Both nearby beaches (easy walking distance) were wonderful and the surf shop is right around the corner. Highly recommend Little Fish (a short drive away) for a great local Kona pour over coffee and smoothie or açaí bowl. Pam (the owner) was quick to respond about one question we had and got us taken care of asap. While the living room was beautiful, we really spent most of our time on the porch or out back! Yes there are TVs - didn't use them. So much to see and do. Get out and enjoy Kauai! The grill is a great addition and everything about the place was super clean and well furnished. The outside shower is a great addition as you do get covered in sand when at the beach and it allows for you to rinse off and keep all of that sand out of the cottage. We'd return and book here again in a heartbeat. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing your wonderful property with us Pam!
We had an absolutely marvelous time at this wonderful, well decorated, fully stocked cottage.
The cottage itself is incredibly charming, the lanai is a wonderful haven, and sitting under the mango tree in the afternoon breeze is one of the best memories we will have of our time there. You really do have everything you need, including beach umbrellas, chairs and boogie boards that you can borrow. The open floor plan connects the kitchen to the dining room and the living room, and there are loads of windows to open to let the breeze through to cool down — though the AC in the bedrooms is a life-saver on hot nights.
There’s not a ton of eating options in Poipu, but that’s fine since the kitchen is fully stocked with whatever you need and the BBQ is at the ready. Pam’s tips of where to go for groceries were great (because OMG food is expensive!).
You’re barely half a block from the beach with lots of boarding, surfing and snorkeling options a walk away.
And sunsets at the beach will simply take your breath away.
We only had to text the owner once with a question, and she was very quick to reply and help on a minor issue.
Definitely hope to come back to this absolute gem!
I was quite taken by the photos of the property and experiencing it in person was even more impressed. The location is fantastic just steps from Poipu Beach, the antiques, beds, and furnishings were beautiful, and the cottage overall was wonderfully designed. We loved the property!
Everything is exactly as advertised plus more.
We very much enjoyed our stay here and would stay at this cottage again in a heartbeat.
This was our second stay at this cottage. The location, house and all the amenities cannot be beat. This property will always our go to place in Kauai. Pam, the owner, is very accommodating and responsive. We look forward to returning in the future .
What an amazing trip! We’ll be back! Mahalo 🤙🌺
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at the charming yellow cottage!! It was very clean, the kitchen was well stocked, beach supplies were perfect, check in was easy, and the location absolutely can’t be beat. We will definitely be back!
