February 2004 (and many other times)


We have stayed in The Little Grass Shack many times; once for three months. This is a great vacation rental. It is a small cottage (maybe 800 square feet) on a quiet street just off the main road that leads from Poipu to Spouting Horn. This is the sunny, south end of the island of Kauai. 

The cottage is nicely furnished and equipped. The floors are all hardwood or tile and covered in nice rattan-style rugs. The furniture is comfortable - wicker, but very good quality wicker. There is a TV, VCR and stereo. The kitchen is excellent (electric stove). There is a queen bedroom and a twin bedroom. The bathroom is great with a claw foot tub and a separate tiled shower stall. The queen bedroom has glass doors that open onto the front porch (but it is private from the street because of bushes and trees). The front porch has a table and chairs for sitting outside for meals and two nice loungers.

There is a washer and dryer in a little building behind the house. This area also has a clothes line and a great outdoor shower. It is just a few minutes in the car to the best beach in Poipu - the beach in front of the Sheraton. Or you can walk down to the road to Baby Beach in one direction (shallow water, but good sandy beach) and Lawai Beach in the other (small sandy beach, good for snorkeling).

We have had two couples sharing the house and it is big enough. It is a very reasonable price and tends to book up fast.

House; 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom; in Poipu, the southern end of Kauai, Hawaii (5123 Hoona Road)

Notes: We have rented it for a month each year for the last few years and still love it. It is not luxurious, but it is great value for the price. February 2004
