About this listing

The space

Explore Kauai from this central East Coast location, enjoy mountain and jungle views from your lanai! The cottage is set on 2+ acres and is perfect for a single person or couple. It offers:
Comfy queen-size bed, shower bath, living room, dining area, well equipped kitchenette, gas grill on lanai, TV, wireless internet access. Shared washer/dryer, beginners' surfboards.
We know the island well and will be happy to assist you with your island adventures!

If it's the season you might want to pick starfruit, passion fruit, yellow- and strawberry guava on the 2+ acre compound; coconuts are available year-round and shampoo ginger will give your hair that special shine.

Just 5 minutes walk from the cottage you'll reach Steelgrass Farm. My brother-in-law offers educational tours of his chocolate farm 3 times a week! Very informative, fun and utterly ONOlicious.....bring some dark chocolate, raw Kauai honey and vanilla beans back for the folks at home!

Just 3 miles down the hill in Kapa'a town you find all the shops, restaurants and cafes you might like to visit. Right by the Moikeha canal and the historic Japanese lantern you'll see the quaint public library with internet access. Of course, there are numerous cafes as well that offer wifi: Small Town Cafe, Cafe Hemingway and Starbucks, to name a few. And yes, you got to try Olympic Cafe for Happy Hour on Fridays, 4 to 7, cheap beer and free tacos!
That's just a few places in Kapa'a town........

The closest beach which is safe for swimming at any time is Lydgate Beach Park, right next to the Wailua River mouth. it's a 60-acre park with lots of amenities, walled seawater ponds, showers, pavilions, picnic tables, barbecue pits, playground, lifeguard station and a 2-mile-long path for walking, jogging, cycling and more. Just North of Kapa'a town is beautiful, wide open Kealia Beach; great for surfing as well as bathing at the North end. This beach boasts a life guard, covered pavilions, shower/bathrooms and a long stretch of that multi-use path which will take you to big, wild Donkey Beach! During your walk you might see humpback whales breaching out there.......from December till May.

When we arrived at the Cozy Cottage Charlotte greeted us with open arms! Charlotte was super kind and provided us with some breakfast items and chocolate to get us through the week.The property is secluded and quiet but centreally located to several restaurants, beaches and shopping. The cottage was super clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. I highly recommend Charlottes place when staying in Kauai.

I stayed at the Cozy Cottage during my October 2016 honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. Charlotte is a great host and the location feels wonderfully secluded.

The Cozy Cottage was the perfect choice for our visit to Kauai. It was spotless and homey. We saved a ton of money by being able to cook in the well appointed kitchen. Charlotte was an informative and gracious host. She was available if we needed her, but gave us our privacy as well. She left us some welcome-to-Hawaii treats in the kitchen which were most appreciated and made our first morning's breakfast much easier as we hadn't had time to get to the grocery store first thing. The cottage's location was perfectly situated for trips to both the north and south of the island, being about in the center of the east coast area. The setting was lovely, being in the jungle -- lots of wildlife to see if you are looking. We had a lovely time and staying at the Cozy Cottage contributed a lot to our enjoyment of the whole trip. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

This was our first time using Airbnb, and Charlotte was a great host! She left us bread, juice, coffee, chocolates etc. for when we arrived. We really appreciated it as the cottage was not immediately close to any stores. The cottage was very clean and roomy, with lots of closet space. The full kitchen allowed us to make many meals in, which saved us a lot of money as restaurant prices are a little high. We enjoyed being outside of town, as it was very quiet in the evening. We also loved having a view of the trees from the bedroom window. The only thing that was a surprise to us was how close two other cottages were to the Cozy Cottage; we had thought that it was off on its own. If you don't mind that, then it's no issue at all, as noise wasn't a problem. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Cozy Cottage and would stay there again in the future.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Charlotte's cozy cottage! The premises was clean, with a fully equipped kitchen, shower with some amenities (shampoo, conditioner, aloe vera gel), a lovely balcony, and an outdoor washing machine and dryer for guest use. Charlotte very generously left a welcome fruit basket and bread upon arrival! She very kindly gave a grand tour of the premises, as well as recommendations on what to do on the island. I would highly recommend staying here if you want to explore both the south and north shore, as it's a very central location! Mahalo nui loa, Charlotte! :)

Originally from Germany I was very fortunate to move West halfway around the world, via Cornwall, UK, and Washington, DC to the most beautiful rock in the middle of the Pacific - KAUA'I!
John and I have lived here for the last 21 years and enjoyed the company of many visitors - family, old and new friends, many of them through airbnb: Traveling to and fro this remote island can be challenging; thus having the world come to us has been greatly rewarding!
When not working as a tour guide I enjoy hiking, swimming, reading, gardening, the Great Outdoors at large, volunteering with beach cleaning and selling fresh produce at the Farmers' Market.
I'm a big aficionado of slack key music; also like tango, Fado and French chansons. My favorite foods range from organic greens to spicy curries....and part of my heart and soul will always be in South India!
