Fodor's Review

Owners Charlie and Susan Hoerner restored a three-bedroom plantation home on Kapaa's Baby Beach to reflect the charm of yesteryear with the conveniences of today. Think plank flooring, gingerbread, and stained glass alongside a Wolf stove, Bosch dishwasher, and granite countertops. The orientation is due east; you won't have to leave your bed—or living room or lanai—to watch the sunrise, the whales breach, or the full moon rise. In addition to the main Sunrise Cottage, there's a cozy and more affordable bungalow called Moonrise Cottage in back that's perfect for honeymooners. Rent both (weekly rentals only) to sleep a total of eight. Credit cards are accepted via PayPal only.

stellar vacation

Moonrise Cottage was a perfect little "love nest," just the right-size for the two of us! We appreciated the central location that allowed us to access all the different parts of the island, as well as ihe proximity to a great walking path hugging miles of beachfront. We even had our own private monk seal who was taking a rest on the sand just a short distance from our front door! The cool tropical decor also made us feel like we landed

some place different. We can certainly understand why you fell in love with Kauai and we hope to be able to come back in the future.
