Honeymooners and other romance seekers find a serene oasis on a quiet lane close to the cove at Koloa Landing, and a short walk to a sandier cove known as Baby Beach. The bright cottage provides a four-poster canopy queen-size bed under high vaulted ceilings, private bamboo-walled lanai with barbecue grill, flatscreen TV with DVD player, and full kitchen. Since it can get hot in Poipu, the wall-unit A/C (along with ceiling fan) is a nice touch. Helpful owners E. J. and Diane Olsson live nearby in Poipu Kai, where they also rent out the attractive Palm Room studio and one-bedroom Royal Kauai suite.
