The Little Grass Shack was such a cute little house. It was quiet and in a sweet neighborhood. We loved being right across the street from Baby Beach.

The Little Grass Shack was the perfect cottage for rest, relaxation and enjoyment! It had everything you could want in a vacation rental and you cannot top the location - steps from the beach, close to shops and dining, and centrally located for trips around the island. It was the perfect home away from home, so much so that our 4 year old cried and refused to leave! Needless to say, we cannot wait to to go back and I would highly recommend this fantastic "shack" to anyone wanting to enjoy all that Kauai has to offer.

We were pleased when we arrived to see that the Little Grass Shack was as good & better than advertised! Clean and well maintained, great location, and love the comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Morning coffee on the lanai was a delight. You can stay in the same hotel and be anywhere in the world, but here in the Little Grass Shack we really felt like we were truly in Hawaii.

We would recommend this to folks due to the location and cost if they were okay with some of the negatives mentioned below:

Appearance/Cleanliness: The house is very cute and clean. The only cockroaches we ever saw were in the detached shed where the laundry is located.
Parking: Easy with a small vehicle. A large truck or suburban would have issues.
Washer/Dryer: Located in the shed and worked great.
Location: 2 minute walk to Baby Beach, which we liked better than Poipu Beach due to the lack of crowds. It's a quick drive to some great local food.
Air Conditioning: This was our biggest problem with the house. Locals told us while we were there that it was more humid than normal so maybe our experience would differ from someone who went during a cooler time. There are 6,000 BTU window AC units in each bedroom. Great for sleeping but we couldn't keep the rest of the house cool. Used fans to redirect the AC into the living room and kitchen but barely made a dent. Kitchen was way too hot to cook dinners in. **Add a third in the kitchen and would make a big difference.**
Living Room: Great for quick sitting but not accommodating for watching movies.
Kitchen: Appliances, though dated, did the job. Had everything we needed. Dining table seats two.
Bedrooms: The master bed (queen) was surprisingly comfortable though very loud with the smallest movement. The kids room was a good size but the mattresses felt like cardboard. Our 4 year old son didn't know any different and slept just fine but had we gone with our teens or mother-in-law, they wouldn't have been able to sleep on the beds. Storage and outlets in both rooms were fine.
Floors: the twine rugs were hard on our feet. I get they are there to catch sand but made it hard to walk barefoot in the house until our feet got used to them.

Summary: We were not dissatisfied with this house and had an amazing trip but probably will look for something more modern next time.

Our daughter and two girls rented the cottage for a week and simply loved it. They said they "gasped" when they first saw it. I am answering the review based on their feedback.

Little Grass Shack was the perfect place for us to launch our south shore Kauai adventures! It was perfectly clean, comfortable well-appointed and maintained-truly a home away from home. Really appreciated the outdoor shower after a long beach day. The neighborhood is very sweet, with Baby Beach and its spectacular sunsets just steps away from the house. One evening we walked to the Beach House for a sunset dinner-what a treat!
Little Grass Shack gave us a chance to feel like we live on Kauai. Our week there was the opposite of a touristy experience. Mahalo to the folks at Kauai Vacation Rentals for your friendly, responsive and very professional service.

We loved the cottage and it was well taken care of. Two suggestions for improvement: you need to have a railing on the stone steps going down to the shed and shower. I almost had a bad fall going down there after it rained the steps are very slippery. The indoor shower door doesn’t close all the way consequently water squares out onto the hardwood floor in the bathroom.

I fell in love with the Little Grass Shack when I saw the pictures. When we arrived it just got better. Adorable house with everything you need. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch in the mornings and dinner in back on the patio. The outdoor shower was a hit with all of us. I would rent it again in a heart beat.
Didn’t care for baby beach, to many rocks. Shipwreck beach wasn’t much better but we found several beaches that were perfect.

We booked and stayed a month. On arrival at the property, we were greeted by pretzel bits in the living room and several cockroaches - alive and dead - in the kitchen (drawers and dishwasher) and the bathroom. The well-worn/much used cottage is in a great location, but is very tired and very much in need of first-rate maintenance, but comes with a LOT of deferred maintenance issues.

A lawn sprinkler pipe burst near the back door. Then a front yard hose PVC pipe (PVC guaranteed to dry out in Hawaii-really?) burst forcing a main valve shutoff (once we found it) and no water to the house for the few hours it took to get repaired. And, our greeters (the roaches) reappeared, necessitating a Pest Control visit (turns out they come in via the uncapped bathtub drain-at least in the bathroom; who knows about the Kitchen). The lanai furniture pictured in the ad is NOT teak or wood, but plastic strap chairs and recliners. The same furniture in the back yard finds 3 of 4 chairs broken from rust and unusable. Interior overdue for a deep door/walls cleaning (or a paint job).

Adequate kitchen ware, but an electric oven that's seen better days. The ice maker is the best kitchen feature as it cranks it out. And the Weber grill is a solid feature-just don't plan on sitting out back for your meal.

Bedrooms have little, old wall AC units which we did not fire up, preferring open doors, windows and fans to the noise of window AC units. Love your sleep mate, you get a double bed in the master BR!

We've stayed in many cottages - including rustic, condos and rental homes on South Shore since 1984. Our 3 service calls to management here were 3 more than we've ever placed to any other property manager. Good thing this property manager was promptly responsive. The just-a-few-bucks-more properties next door and nearby (which we toured) are where we'd return in this area - the answer I provided Lucy when she asked if we'd like to book in the future.

We had such a good time here. Close to multiple kid-friendly beaches, and easy to get to many other restaurants and interesting sites. The house could use a deep cleaning, but it is well stocked and we were comfortable there. We would stay here again on future visits. We only rated the property management company a 3 because they were highly unresponsive when messaged prior to our visit. Fortunately we did not need to contact them during our stay.

Been to Kauai once a year for past 8 years except for covid year. first time at this cottage. Really like this cottage. For me a great location. Unfortunately because of covid many restaurants closed those open lines or restaurants reservation needed. But it was still a wonderful place to be.
