Property Details

Updated: May 17, 2015
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Tradewinds Cottage's classic Hawaiian environment is the paradise you've been searching for!

Kauai's chronically sunny west side, with dry sunny days, offers several of the state's best beaches, the breathtaking natural beauty of Waimea Canyon, the unexpected splendor of Kokee State Park and views so stunning of the rugged Na Pali coast you'll forget to get your camera out. For adventurous travelers, Kauai's west coast serves as a launching point for world-class hiking, boating, sport fishing, surfing and helicopter tours of the island's interior. If you're looking for peace and quiet, take a short walk to the beach with a towel, a book, a drink, your favorite person or all the above to watch the sunset over Ni'ihau, Hawaii's Forbidden Island. Inside, you'll feel like you stepped into a dream.

And if you're out at night, don't forget to lean your head back and look up at the stars -- they look like they're just just beyond arm's reach. Or you could light the outdoor grill to start a memorable meal with your loved ones. Whether you've been out and about or nearby, you will look forward to coming home to Tradewinds Cottage.

Also nearby is Port Allen, Kauai's west side port, where you can sign up for a sunset cruise or an ocean-bound tour of the Na Pali Coast, both memorable and exciting side trips. Whether you want to picnic or hike, or just ponder Kauai's natural beauty, drive to the top of Kauai, accessible from the towns of Waimea and Kekaha. Driving up to Kokee State Park will take you past what Mark Twain called 'The Grand Canyon of the Pacific'.

Tradewinds Cottage offers a full kitchen and a washer and dryer to make your stay more pleasant. The gracious interior invites

conversation over dinner or drinks with friends and family with an open floor layout between the living room, dining room and kitchen.Louvered windows let the trade winds blow through the house, a constant reminder you're in Hawaii.

You can keep up, if you desire, with what's going on in the rest of the world with cable TV and free Wi-Fi internet. If you're in Kauai to work, there is plenty of space to spread out, a phone, a good internet connection, and services nearby.

You will enjoy your stay at Tradewinds Cottage whether you have a week, a month, or longer to spend on Kauai. Many of our guests are repeat visitors and will attest to how pleasant their stay was. You, like them, will reflect on the ocean side sunsets over the island of Ni'ihau, the timeless surfers riding the timeless waves, and discovering your personal favorite spots around the island. Your only regret will be leaving.

We look forward to seeing you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We LOVE this cottage. It is so cozy and comfortable. Kauai is such a gorgeous place. The lookout over the Na Pali Coast was incredible..not to mention the Waimea Canyon. Polihale Beach and Hanalei Bay were fantastic as well.

Thanks so much for having us.

We (3) had an absolutely fantastic stay at Tradewinds cottage. It was quiet, private and safe. Lovely huge private yard. i had a rental bike and there was great cycling all around the neighborhood, plus the hiway had a really wide shoulder, and when it left beach front the hiway was not busy.. a 1 hour ride gets you to the very end of the paved road. It was close to town to run for groceries/beer. Close to a great safe beach. My 80 year old mom LOVED the hot tub!!..private and fenced.. enjoyed drinking wine under the stars. The kitchen and laundry facilities were terrific, beds were comfy. Linens/towels excellent. Owner Scott couldn't have been more accommodating. We were out and about everyday doing excursions but were so happy to get home to our quiet relaxing home away from home. Total thumbs up for Tradewinds Cottage. Jean Katie and Mae

Our first vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
Wow, where do we begin! We booked this cottage because my husband and I brought my parents with us to celebrate their 30 year wedding anniversary. Let me just say that it did not disappoint. Upon stepping into the cottage, we were stunned at how big and wide open it was. It had everything we had hoped for and more! The kitchen was fully equipped, and had a seperate dining and living room that connected to a wide open area which was great. The bedrooms were MUCH bigger than we anticipated, and the master bedroom had a door that connected to the back patio with a very big hot tub that was ready to be used. The whole cottage exceeded all of our expectations. Beds were very cozy and the ceiling fans kept the house in a very comfortable temperature the entire time. The bathroom had plenty of towels and even some beach towels if you needed them. The yard had all kinds of fruit trees, like oranges, limes, and avacodos. It was amazing!

The location was southwest of the island which was the dryer side that stayed mainly sunny. It was very close to Port Allen (about 10 miles) where if you booked Napali coast cruise, it was a short drive, and Salt Pond Park where there is a nice beach to just relax at. The town of Waimea is only a few miles away. The ocean was literally right across the street within a footballs field length. My husband and I after our first night, woke up early and walked along the road next to the beach and watched the sunrise. It was very beautiful.

We would absolutely without a doubt stay here again when we return to Kauai someday. Our rental property manager Scott was very easy to work with, and was always in touch if we needed anything or had any questions or concerns. Looking forward to returning again one day. Mahalo!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tradewinds cottage. A family of 4 with a 5 & 7 year old. Big yard to play, hot tub to relax and all the other amenities you would need (beach chairs, cooler, etc)

We honestly didn't spend a ton of time at the house as we were out and about to various beaches, hikes etc. everyday but great place to unwind

The Tradewinds Cottage is everything we were looking for and then some. The home is very clean and bright, comfy and cozy. Just steps to the ocean and the sound of the waves lull you to sleep and you wake to the songs of the island birds wishing you a beautiful day! The yard is full of edible fruit, beautiful foliage, birds and geckos. We enjoyed evening hot tubs after our adventure packed days. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We loved our time on Kauai and highly recommend this home.

Even better than we thought it would be!

Your house was FANTASTIC. We've visited Hawaii often enough now to really appreciate the quieter islands, and your place is in a quieter part of a beautiful island. We loved the fresh fruit (oranges and mangoes, picked from your trees), and also the privacy afforded by the trees around your lot. Your house is extremely well-maintained, everything was very clean, and the furnishings and style of the house were made for relaxation. We took your advice about driving to the beach at the far end of the road (out past the missile base), and we weren't disappointed. From the description, we thought this would be a great place to stay, and this house was even better than we'd expected. Thank you!

The cottage is located in a residential neighborhood about a minutes walk down to a beach where you can have front row seats to sunsets over Nihue.

The back lani is fenced and very private. It has a hot tub, bbq and table. The access to the lani is through the master bedroom. The master bedroom is air-conditioned and has a real comfortable bed. The windows allow the tradewinds to cool the home which was spotless upon our arrival. The TV is a small flat screen, basic cable and a DVD player. More than adequate.

In a week's worth of access the free wireless Internet was superb without any hitch whatsoever.

A hedge of sorts also offer privacy to the yard which has plumeria, lime, orange and other trees. The limes and oranges were great .. best fresh squeezed juices we have had.

Sure its a car ride into Waimea .. but its only a few minutes. Sweet Lomi Massage, Isihara Market's poke, the Shrimp Station's coconut shrimp and JoJo's (the one in the brown building on the main street across from the high school field) No. 2 Shave Ice Combination with Mac Ice Cream are musts.

St. Teresa's is a short walk down the road for Mass and the congregation and community are most accommodating to visitors.

Yes, you can hear chickens, and birds and dogs and every now and then a neighbor .. you aren't in a vault. You are in a neighborhood. None, however, is distracting. Lets just say it adds to the charm.

The beach in Kekaha is great for sunning .. but we found the snorkeling at Salt Ponds near Hanapepe to be our favorite ocean activity - well short of surfing in Hanalie Bay - but that is a 90 minute car ride away. Salt Ponds is only a few minutes past Waimea and offers protected easy and rewarding snorkeling. Friday nights in Hanapepe are Arts Nights .. and there is also often some great local dishes available to sample as well. Give it a try.

Ok, look you aren't in Poipu, its not Princeville, and not Lihue, You are in your own private relaxing corner of Kauai. Just call it "base".. if you want to run about to other parts of the island .you can -- . and yes we did. But, know you can always come back to Tradewinds... for fresh orange juice, or maybe a mai tai (get the premixed rum and fruit juice local Kauai brand at Costco), listen to an Iz CD, soak in the hot tub . .. smell the plumeria .. and enjoy the beauty of tropical sunset.

Its a lovely, relaxing base .. choose to adventure forth .. or not. It's your call.
