About This Listing
Island living at its best! This Cottage is the perfect alternative to an expensive hotel room or condo in Poipu.
Located off Koloa Road in a quiet and private rural residential section of Lawai, this one bedroom/studio tropical island cottage offers peace and quiet, and all the comforts of home for a great price!
This enchanting Kauai cottage is completely furnished and well appointed with all the amenities you will need for your Kauai vacation:
Full size bed with high quality linens
kitchenette with full size refrigerator
private covered outdoor shower
Internet and cable included
Parking for one car
Beach gear available for use (umbrella, chairs, towels, cooler, snorkel gear, body boards)
The location of Lawai is perfect for the Kauai traveler who wants to be in a central area where the rest of the island can be easily accessed. The hwy is 2 minutes away and the nearby towns of Kalaheo to the west and Koloa and Poipu to the south have several good restaurants, a market and anything you might need to make your stay enjoyable.
Lawai is less than 10 minutes by car to both Koloa Town and Poipu. It offers everything you would expect to find in a 4 star resort area - Golf courses, shopping, restaurants, sunset sailing, surfing, snorkeling or just sunning on The Travel Channel's #1 Beach in America - Poipu!
My neighborhood is quiet with a rural feel. You will hear roosters in the morning and the very occasional bleating of the goat down the street. My street is a dead end, so there is no through traffic, which keeps car noise to a minimum. It is very centrally located on the South side, with super easy access to Koloa Road and to Hwy 50.
I would strongly recommend renting a car, but there is a bus stop right at the corner of my street for the Kauai Bus/Koloa Shuttle.

Leslie was great to contact and to check to see if everything was OK.
Our stay at Leslie's cottage was perfect! Leslie was super nice and personable. The cottage was clean and decorated beautifully. Although the space was small, it was one of our most memorable airbnb experiences. The outdoor shower & bath was our favorite part! It was so relaxing and unique. The screened patio was also great for relaxing after our long days. We both miss Kauai so much and hope to visit again and stay at Leslie's cottage!
Leslie's airbnb is exactly what you need when staying on the South shore of Kauai! It's in a cute little neighborhood that is only a 5-10 minute drive from Koloa and Poipu.
The place is pretty small but since you're mostly just sleeping and getting ready for the day here, you really don't need much. And what Leslie has done with the space she has is pretty incredible. VERY clean and comfortable which is a big one for me. I thought the outdoor shower might be kind of a pain but it was actually large and a refreshing way to start and/or end your day.
We had a great time. Thanks, Leslie!
Well we stayed at Leslie's small cottage in May 2015 for 2 nights. It was such an adorable place. We were so impressed on how she designed the small house to be compact but beautiful at the same time. Honestly, photos of this mini house should be displayed in Tiny House magazine lol. She has impeccable taste in how she decorated the cottage. Everything was new and super clean as well. Definitely take advantage of the refrigerator in the room.
As for Leslie, very sweet and accommodating. We arrived late our first night due to our late flight and she gave us a warm welcome.
Just a heads up that due to the tiny house structure, the shower head is not that high. I'm 6 ft tall and I was looking down at the shower head lol but the shower was wide so not a big deal; tall people, just don't be surprise. Also the drainage of the shower runs across the ground so suggest bringing indoor flipflops.
It was a great experience staying here and recommend it to any one, especially those who want to try the tiny house experience. We would def go again whenever we go back to Kauai. Thanks Leslie!
Leslie's cottage is perfectly executed. She has thought of absolutely everything one might need to be comfortable and enjoy their stay and everything is done with creativity and charm. It was such a pleasure coming back to the cottage each night after a long day of wedding events and exploring. Leslie is communicative, friendly and eager to help you with anything you might need for your stay. We especially loved the outdoor shower.
Leslie was a fantastic host! Her cottage was so dreamy! It was perfect for me and my girlfriend. The little kitchen had everything we needed, and the outdoor shower was the best! Thanks so much!
We had a great time. Everything was very clean and we had everything what we needed.
Leslie was very friendly and helpful
About the Host, Leslie
I am a 6th grade English/Language Arts teacher at a local middle school. I love the ocean and the sun, so my free time is spent at the beach, reading, swimming, and snorkeling. I also love to garden and cook with fresh and local ingredients.
good breakfast, good nachos, good margaritas...
great morning stop for some coffee, pastries, and beach picnic supplies. Cafe has delicious food too!
Great beach for swimming and snorkeling. Protected from the wind on those strong tradewind days!
beautiful beach! gorgeous summer snorkeling...
