Life Along Kauai’s White Sand Beaches
Kauai is a beautiful island, with emerald-green mountains forming its interior and pristine white sand beaches found all along the coastline. With most of the island’s interior undeveloped, life happens along the coast. The beach is a central part of island life, with residents and visitors alike lounging along the sand, enjoying water activities, and using it as a gathering place for friends and family. With so many special moments occurring along the shoreline, why not make it a part of your everyday landscape? Our Kauai beach cottage rentals allow just that, offering oceanfront living at its finest.
Our Kauai cottages on the beach not only boast prime oceanfront locations, but they also draw inspiration from the natural beauty outdoors to offer breezy, beach-inspired interiors. Enjoy an open concept floorplan, where the living room, kitchen, and dining area all flow easily together. And thanks to the open floorplan, those stunning ocean views can be enjoyed from multiple points throughout the home. In most of our Kauai beach cottages, the living room boasts glass doors that open up to the sea, bringing the sights and sounds right into the home. Whether you’re standing on the lanai sipping a cup of coffee as you enjoy morning views over the ocean or you’re curled up on the couch inside watching the last rays of light fade from the sky, you won’t regret your choice to soak up these precious moments along the beachfront. These residences feature comfortable furnishings and tropical touches throughout that provide an upscale island living experience. Move freely from the living room to the kitchen, where you’ll find full sized appliances and plenty of counterspace in our units with a full floorplan. With cookware and tableware provided, it’s easy to enjoy oceanfront dining right from the comfort of your own home away from home.
Let the rhythmic sounds of the ocean lull you to sleep at night from the master bedroom. You’ll find a comfortable bed draped with high quality linens, so you can get the solid rest you’ve been craving. Many of our Kauai cottages on the beach offer multiple bedrooms, great for families or small groups. With both shared spaces and the privacy of well-appointed bedrooms, it will be easy to get comfortable and stay awhile in these highly desirable homes!
Beautiful Oceanfront Grounds
Not only will the ocean be right on your doorstep when you stay in one of these Kauai beach cottages, but you’ll also have access to a host of other amenities that will add value to your stay. Many of these accommodations boast additional perks such as an onsite swimming pool, soothing hot tub, and fitness facilities. With some of the swimming pools being located along the oceanfront, you can truly enjoy the best of both worlds. There’s no need to venture far when a host of activity options are right at hand!
The Kauai Lifestyle
Embrace the Kauai lifestyle that encourages a slower pace, a laid-back mindset, and plenty of time spent outdoors. This truly is a place to slow down and appreciate the simpler things in life. Of course, there are always many activity options to enjoy as well. Especially with oceanfront living, you’ll enjoy easy access to water activities such as boogie boarding, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, and stand up paddle boarding, among others. Most of our Kauai cottages on the beach are located along the island’s east coast, where you’ll not only have access to miles of white sand beaches, but also the ability to enjoy them from the Kauai Beach Path while walking or biking. This paved path, known as Ke Ala Hele Makalae, runs for miles along the east coast, passing white sand beaches and beautiful coastal views along the way. From the east coast, shopping and dining at some of the island’s best local eateries are also easily accessible.
To spend time on Kauai is to embrace each day to its fullest. In a land filled with natural beauty, you never have to look for long to find the silver lining. Kauai’s beautiful landscapes make it a great place for embracing the great outdoors. Whether that includes serious adventuring off the beaten track or exploring charming streets with local boutiques and eateries depends on personal interests. But there is always something beautiful to see and something exciting to do while on Kauai!
On an island with wild chickens, it is not uncommon to simultaneously wake to the rural sounds of roosters crowing and waves lapping the shore. Positioning yourself on the east coast makes for beautiful sunrise opportunities for early risers. Early morning hours are especially peaceful on Kauai, with the pastel and golden colors of sunrise spreading across the waters. This also tends to be the time of day when the ocean and winds are at their calmest, creating beautiful glassy water conditions. Pick up fresh fruit from one of the nearby Kauai farmer’s markets or enjoy a leisurely breakfast from the comfort of your Kauai cottage on the beach. Adding a cup of Kauai Coffee to your daily routine is also a tasty way to get your morning caffeine fix.
With the calmest ocean conditions usually falling during morning hours, this is a great time to snorkel alongside tropical fish and giant green sea turtles. Venture out on your own from one of Kauai’s best snorkeling beaches or schedule a boat excursion that will transport you to an offshore location. For lunch, treat yourself to a local-style plate lunch or poke bowl from Kauai restaurants such as Wailua Drive In, Pono Market, or Kountry Kitchen.
Afternoons on Kauai can be as leisurely as lounging along a postcard perfect beach or sparkling swimming pool or as action filled as ziplining over a jungle canopy or looking down on a thundering waterfall from your position in a helicopter above. Life on Kauai is truly unmatched in beauty and adventure. Aside from ziplining and helicopter tours, you will also find activities such as ATVing, horseback riding, tubing, and hiking all easily accessible.
From sunrise to sunset, it is easy to embrace every moment on Kauai. Be sure to catch a fiery sunset from Kauai’s west side from beaches such as Kekaha Beach or Polihale State Park, where you can close out the day with your toes in the sand.
