Wailua Riverside Cottage, a perfect place to experience the real Kauai in a residential setting with peek views of the Wailua River and located a block from Wailua Beach made famous by Elvis Presley starring in the movie Blue Hawaii when he and his New Bride rode horses on Wailua Beach!

Wailua Riverside is a tree top cottage, furnished Hawaiiana style, fully equipped kitchen, master bedroom with a new memory foam queen bed, den with TV and DVD player and a new full size sofa sleeper; as well as, a covered lanai offering outdoor dining. Wailua Beach is a block away and the sound of ocean waves hitting the beach will lull you to sleep each night. From your bed or lanai, watch as breathtakingly beautiful pink skies form through swaying coconut trees at sunrise.

Special Features!

2 Paddle Boards

2 Single Kayaks

1 New Double Kayak* - orange/yellow*

All fully equipped, you can take them right off the dock just steps from the Hideaway. *Value: $80-$100 per couple. Note: A new double kayak was purchased April 2019 an orange/yellow kayak, a Lifetime Spitfire Tandem Kayak.

Amenities: Netflix and Prime Apps, DVD player, 2 coffee makers (Drip and Keurig), linens, washer / dryer, gas BBQ grill, beach gear including snorkels, fins, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, beach towels.

Cleanliness and Safety: In keeping with our high cleaning standards, our units are thoroughly cleaned for every guest arrival. Each property has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected using EPA approved disinfectants. We pay special attention to high touch surfaces such as door handles, light switches, and remote controls. Our housekeepers are thoroughly trained on the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC.

Located at the Sacred Wailua River, where only the ancient Hawaiian Royalty were allowed to visit, Wailua Riverside is a two minute walk to an awesome eight-mile shoreline of uncrowded, sandy beaches. You are steps from a dock where you can launch your own kayak unto the Wailua River to explore and find the trail to Secret Waterfalls, one the top 10 things to do on Kauai. Water skiing, Wakeboarding, and Speed Boating are also available from the same dock.

Within a mile you will find: Wailua Beach, Ancient Hawaiian ruins; a Hawaiian village; Opaeka’a Falls; Lydgate Park offering protected ocean swimming, a 2.2 mile jogging trail and Smith’s Tropical Paradise offering one of the best island Luau’s. Grocery stores, souvenir shops and most of the island’s restaurants are available within a 3 mile radius. Further up the road is Kauai’s Hindu Monastery, an incredible place, set in an absolutely idyllic environment next to the Wailua River and a stupendous waterfall, a must see!

The airport is 6 miles away, the nearest town is Kapaa just one mile away and the road does not go all around the island which makes this property ideal. You can drive north or south and return to a location central to the island.

Minimum stay is 3 nights; except for Holidays, when there is a minimum stay of 7 nights.

*Rate per night based on season plus Hawaii taxes and outclean plus Hawaii Taxes, damage protection $49, admin fee $40

***Trip Advisor*** We just returned from five days at Wailua Riverside Hideaway also known as Kauai Calls! Set Your Heart Free It is a delightful four room efficiency on the Wailua river, on the east coast of Kauai. Full kitchen, fantastic elevated covered lanai. The place was squeeky clean, bright and airy to take advantage of the trades. Quiet, secluded and private, the lovely vacation rental has it’s own carport, access to full size washer and dryer, and something you seldom see, a modern efficient air conditioner (but with the trades, you don’t need it). You can even watch satellite TV if you just can’t let it go. There is a great collection of DVDs and VHS movies and lots of books. Candace has provided every type of recreation equipment you might need for the beach or the river, including a two place Ocean Kayak, paddles and PFDs, and a small dock to launch right on the tranquil river. Everything is nearby and yet you hear nothing at night but an occasional gecko, rooster, or the soft soothing music of the distant waves in Wailua Bay. Lydgate park is less than five minutes and is the perfect place to introduce the ocean to your children. Calm, protected, warm waters with full lifeguard service, facilities and plenty of parking. A great place to walk or run in the mornings or evenings. Candace is a gracious hostess who allows you to be you. You have a completely private entrance, and yet she is available if you need her. She is the perfect kind of person to host such a place. She knows the island inside and out, real estate, culture, touristy stuff, and the best places to go. She is a transplanted kama aina who loves what she does. What a fantastic find after a couple horror stories on Kauai and other islands. My only concern is that too many other folks will discover this place and it will be hard to schedule. We are going back next year. Period. It is wonderful! Period.

Comfortable Riverside Cottage
This Wailua Cottage, located steps away from the Wailua river, in the central east part of the Island. The location made the north and south shore easily accessible. There were great shops and restaurants nearby. The kitchen was well equipped. The balcony was the perfect beginning, and ending to an adventurous day. The cottage was very clean, and the A/C made the stay very comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and well maintained. I highly recommend staying at the Wailua Riverside Cottage.

4/5 Good

This was a great stay. Pros of staying here was being right next to the river (which was beautiful), being able to walk or paddle board to the ocean (there is no sidewalk so had to be careful with all the vehicles!), having a central location (but still far enough that you have to drive everywhere), and being a nice quiet property. The house was super nice and clean, however two cons is that there is no first aid kit and the floors are SUPER slick! We had to be careful when walking around in socks. The river dock is also pretty busy but everyone we met was super friendly. I know there’s a lot of people saying that they were greeted or seen off by the owner however, minus a couple of text messages, we never saw hide nor hair of her despite being connected to the house? Not saying that’s good or bad, just something to mention for those who are looking into this. Overall, would recommend to someone who is wanting a quiet property a little bit away from all the hubbub of everything. It’s was nice, organized, quiet, and everyone that we met was friendly! The messages with the owner were also pleasant and super nice!

5/5 Excellent

I have never enjoyed a vacation so much as I did this one, and the place I came home to every night was the foundation for that experience! The home was a delight, bright and beautiful. I am so overwhelmed with words that limiting my expression of my satisfaction would be necessary. The good reviews say it all! The roosters people commented on are part of Kauai and the replacement of the classic Hawaiian louvre windows will probably eliminate that (as well as all the great things that come with those windows. I hope the louvres are left in the bathroom!) We all are from time zones east of Kauai, so I liked being awake in time for the sunrise everyday. If that isn't in your plans, i'm sure you have noise eliminating things from your long flight to hush the plane and fellow passenger noise that will give you desired sleep. I slept with windows open, listening to the ocean waves and night sounds.The starlight from the lanai is glorious as are all the island, river, and beach toys available to use. Candace is a dream, the first of many examples of Kauai Aloha spirit. Simply summarized, I loved this place and will be back! Maholo, Candace, I look forward to seeing you again!

Lovely during the daylight hours
Upon arrival we were very excited with our 3 night stay. It was nicely set up for us... BBQ, beautiful lanai for meals and evening lounging easily accessible kayaks close to a river that's easy to paddle. During the daylight hours we loved our little pad. We did have a lot of trouble sleeping through the roosters crowing which started at 3am and feel this should be noted. The host was excellent and made sure we were taken care of.
