Plumeria Cottage Vacation Home

Plumeria Cottage offers a vacation of ease indoors and out. Compact yet perfectly proportioned in the vintage beach style, it is a delightful combination of convenience and charm. And, with a roomy, sunny lanai and large shaded grassy yard, it becomes quite spacious. An outdoor-shower room with laundry and plenty of room for beach items and for drying wet towels and bathing suits keeps the indoors comfortable and relaxed.

House Design

Enter beside large plumerias into the living space, hang your keys just next to the door, step down to the kitchen on your right to put your market purchases away, or to the dining area followed by the sitting room. The bedroom, also a step down, is just beyond the kitchen and off the main living area. A sliding shoji-screen “window” provides cross ventilation as well as privacy. Across the front of the cottage is a roomy deck and around the corner is the large outdoor shower room, so there’s no need to track sand and dripping water into your living space. Built-in shelves hold linens and both bath towels and beach towels.

Vertical bead-board paneling, clerestory windows for ventilation and horizontal sliding windows set the vintage tone. Lauhala mats and rattan floor coverings enhance the original pine floorboards plus new bamboo flooring in the kitchen and bedroom. Décor includes new microfiber sofa bed, reupholstered vintage rattan dining table and chairs. Local art echoes the simplicity and sweetness of the cottage.

The kitchen is updated with new cabinets, granite-tile counters, microwave and refrigerator yet maintains the original painted-brick wall, inset corner shelves, jalousie windows and vintage-look Hotpoint stove and oven. The new sink plus coffee maker and grinder, toaster, linens, dishes, flatware, cooking pots and utensils all meet modern expectations.

The bathroom with roomy shower stall (and jalousie windows for ventilation and privacy) has painted-wood detailing, old-style wooden medicine cabinet and additional sliding window for that added touch of light and greenery.
