This lovely cottage was built as the caretaker’s dwelling for the previous owners. Because they were interested in privacy it has its own entrance and sits on a slightly lower level than the main house. Its size is 550 square feet and is a true one bedroom with doors that separate the bedroom from the living room. It offers the same stunning view as the rest of the villa – some say the best!
In 2010 we completely remodeled this “ohana” and named it Kope Cottage (coffee cottage). We gutted the cottage back to the walls and installed new top-of-the-line materials. This included new tile floors, new bathroom and kitchen fixtures, beds, furniture, fans and high-end appliances throughout. We also installed an energy efficient on-demand hot water heater.
The bedroom has two new Serta Perfect Sleeper twin beds that can be made separately or together as a king size and a new sleeper couch with a pull out queen size bed.
When we upgraded the bathroom we added a large tub/shower combination that offers adequate depth for a real bath. We supply shampoo, hair conditioner and body wash. There is also a hair dryer.
The kitchenette has the following cooking facilities- toaster oven, microwave, 2-burner hot plate, rice cooker, Technivorm coffee maker, coffee grinder, fruit juicer, and a brand-new Weber BBQ gas grill on the lanai. It is also supplied with cooking oil, butter and most common cooking spices as well as pots, pans, cutlery, utensils etc. needed to cook and serve a delicious meal.
The laundry facility has a new high-efficiency GE front loading washer and dryer. We supply detergent, dryer sheets and bleach. We also supply an iron and ironing board.
The living room has a flat panel TV, DVD player and a HD TV cable connection with premium channels. It also has a dedicated Internet connection with its own router that offers wired and wireless wi-fi connections that are not shared with the main house. It is also equipped with an iPhone charger/player.
We tied the cottage into our new (2012) state-of-the-art photovoltaic system. In 2014 we added 3 inches of soundproofing to the bamboo fence at the end of the lanai to offer superb sound protection.
Beach mats, beach chairs, beach towels, a beach umbrella, cooler and reusable ice packs and assorted snorkel gear round out the amenities of the cottage.
When guests are in residence in the Vista Suite the pool hours and deck hours are limited from 10AM to Sunset. There are lounge chairs and a table on the north side of the deck for your use. The hot tub and exercise facility are shared with other guests on a first come, first served basis.
The unit is also supplied with what we call our Coffee Conoisseur Setup which includes: A Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Maker – which is only one of three coffee makers recommended by the Specialty Coffee Association of America; a Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder – which is a high quality conical burr grinder; a Triton T3 gram scale – which is the favorite of Baristas around the world to weigh their coffee beans, as well as paper and metal coffee filters and instructions on how to use this setup to make a great cup of coffee. We are also happy to supply you with ground coffee if you don’t prefer to grind it yourself.
To sum up – The cottage is an absolute gem!
