Kala Beach Cottage..Oceanview..Air Conditioned..Steps to Beach

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 20, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The Kala Beach Cottage is an authentic Kekaha Sugar Plantation Managers Cottage. Lovingly restored with integrity by a professional interior designer, this cottage gives you the obvious sense of classic Hawaii living. Other amenities of this charming cottage include a private enclosed back yard and covered patio, giving the option for outdoor entertaining and/or sunbathing. Enjoy OCEAN VIEWS from the front lanai, and a brief 1 minute walk will take you to the ocean and stretches of sparkling white sand for 15 miles without a house. Here the reef comes onshore and provides protected pools for calm water and swimming. This is an ideal place for children to safely enjoy the water.

At the base, and within minutes of the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific', the WAIMEA CANYON offers sunny cool weather which is ideal for hiking the many miles of trails through varied native forests and canyon views. You can hike to the cliffs of the NA PALI COAST, often reaching 4000 feet, and see spectacular views of the jagged shoreline and deeply carved valleys where the first Hawaiians lived.

Another option is a 5 mile drive to POLIHALE BEACH STATE PARK, where wide stretches of sand for up to seven miles meet the Na Pali Coast. Here you will find a beach, framed with dunes of up to 100 feet and some of the most beautiful blue water you will see in Hawaii. At end of the beach, near the Na Pali cliffs, you will find showers, bathrooms, and pavilions. This is the place to escape and dry out in the sun on those days where clouds and rain obscure the sun, especially on the north and east shores in the Winter. This is an uncrowded treasure for beach and nature lovers.

This is the sunny westside of Kauai, where rain rarely occurs, and sunny mornings with cobalt blue skies are common. Why gamble your vacation by staying on the North Shore, where rain is constantly replenishing the lush green forests, and sunny days can be infrequent in the Winter months?

Why stay at the Waimea Plantation Cottages, where a 'garden view' cottage starts at $275 per night, when you can have the ultimate privacy of your own beach cottage within a few steps of white sand beaches that go on forever? This side of the island guarantees you an amazing end to each day, offering the opportunity to see a SIZZLING SUNSET over the Pacific Ocean. You may even see the 'green flash'! This is a sweet spot that is affordable when compared to other Kekaha options.

Bring your sunscreen and an umbrella.... you will need it...... because the sun shines here!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY ON THE WESTSIDE

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Kala Beach Cottage from 04/09 – 04/16. After a couple initial incidents, which were handled promptly by Sarah, the remaining stay was uneventful and quite relaxing. The service person even stopped by a day later to see if any other problems had arisen. What great service.

If you want to get away from the resort areas and just relax without the hustle and bustle that comes with that lifestyle, the west end is the place to stay. Kekaha is a quiet town almost at the end of the road, with very little happening after the sun goes down. Being located across from a school was not a problem, as all the keiki waiting for school did not create a ruckus. Did not even know they were there.

The cottage is located 1 block from Kekaha State beach and comes fully stocked with everything you need except for food, which can be purchased in Waimea (3 miles east) or on base at PMRF (6 miles west), if you can access the base. There are beach toys, snorkel equipment, beach chairs, umbrella and enough beach towels for a small army.

The cottage iis located a short drive from Waimea canyon and Polihale state beach. To access Polihale beach I recommended you have a 4WD vehicle and read your car rental agreement. You do not want to be stuck out there. It is as far as the road goes on the west side of the island and I am sure the tow charge would be the price of another vacation on Kauai.

This is our 4th time staying in Kauai and each time we have stayed on the west side. The isolation is what makes this so peaceful and quiet. In addition, the Kala Cottage feels like home. Just a nice place to hang out after the sun sets and allow you to recharge for the next days adventure on the Garden Isle. Would definitely rent this property again next time on the island

Perfect quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Kala Beach Cottage and were so impressed with the little house. Kekaha is a quiet little town with not much action but it had a little local vibe and it was fun to see the kids going to school across the street. It was nice to get away from the touristy areas.

The house is exactly as the photos show, be achy, clean and quaint. We loved how well the house was stocked (beach towels, beach toys, games and some condiments from previous guests). We didn't need anything extra. The outdoor shower was wonderful as well. The beach across the street was lovely but the waves were high and the rip tides were too (in the winter). Overall, it was a wonderful place and the managers and hosts were very helpful.

Everything Included

  • 4 of 5

The Kala Cottage is quaint & perfectly located on the less touristy west side of Kauai. The only thing you'll need for your stay is food/drinks & personal attire! Swimming in the tropical temps of the Pacific Ocean is just a couple minute walk to a mostly unoccupied beach. Be sure to see Waimea Canyon, a 40 minute round trip drive that's just a couple miles from the cottage. And Polihale Beach state park is a must see-also a short drive away down a bumpy gravel road.

Lovely home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay, we felt at home from the first second, it’s rural but comfortable and tidy. There is everything you need for a perfect vacation, Sarah (the janitor) is very helpful just in case. The location is ideal, it’s the sunny and quiet side of the island, not crowded, you will feel back in the good old times. Close to Waimea Canyon (hiking), lovely Waimea town (food, restaurants), Salt Pond Beach Park (top!) and the huge Polihale Beach there is everything you need for a perfect stay just within a short ride. But there’s no need to drive to meet your “private” beach, you can hear it from the lanai. Living between the locals, the neighborhood is quiet and the school across the street won’t bother you after school time. We’ll be back next year because it’s such a friendly home in paradise. Recommended for: Nature lovers, quiet vacation, to relax.

Kala Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My sister stayed at this lovely cottage a year ago so when we planned our vacation getaway we chose the same cottage due to her positive experience. The cottage is well furnished and equipped with everything you need. It's a home away from home. We utilized all of the beach supplies (chairs, towels, sand toys for the kids) and snorkeling gear. You can't beat a one minute walk from the to what was our own seemingly private beach. Salt pond beach had the best place to snorkel with the reef that keeps the water calm. The backyard is perfect to relax. Fruit trees flowering trees on the property are stunning. We are sure to revisit the cottage. Mahalo!

Kala Beach Cottage Review

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Kala Beach cottage for a week to celebrate our 5th anniversary. The cottage is in a wonderful location on the west side of Kauai just steps from the beach! The decor and layout of the house is very beachy, homey and inviting. We felt at home right as we stepped through the door! It was fully stocked with anything we could have needed for a day at the beach, i.e. beach chairs, towels, snorkel equipment, umbrella. The town of Waimea is just a short drive down the road, and is a great little town with local restaurants, grocery stores, beach equipment rentals and, of course, shave ice! It's also the beginning point of the Waimea Canyon drive, which is a must-see! The cottage was a serene and relaxing home base for all the adventures we took on Kauai. We loved staying on the west side of the island because it felt a lot less "touristy" than the south-east and northern areas of Kauai. I highly recommend the cottage for a romantic getaway or even a family vacation. Kauai is the most beautiful and peaceful place we've ever been (and we've travelled all over the world), and the cottage was one major contributor to our incredible vacation!
