A guest comment says it best. 'If you want a beautiful hideaway, this is it!! The grounds are wonderful, like a private park. Its quiet, relaxed and absolutely a wonderful retreat. Close to the main road yet far enough away so you never hear traffic, beaches a mile or so away and many good restaurants as well as grocery stores nearby. We liked it so much we extended our stay and will always cherish the memories of our time there. Truly a place of the “aloha spirit.”' - Guest comment
If you are planning a vacation on the beautiful North Shore of Kauai, then consider a stay at Hale Kokio. Hale Kokio is at the end of a quiet country road, on two private acres bordered by mature plantings. As soon as you turn through the gates, you realize that you are in paradise. Hale Kokio is the perfect setting for your Hawaiian holiday, be it a honeymoon, special occasion or well deserved getaway.
Our cottage is bright and airy with an open floor plan. Enjoy the lanai, featuring a private hot tub. The fully equipped kitchen is well outfitted for those who wish to prepare meals.
The two acres surrounding the house are yours to explore. You will find tropical gardens, a beautiful night sky, or a comfortable shaded spot to lounge under the monkey pod trees. Enjoy spectacular views of the sunset from the property.
Hale Kokio is perfect for North Shore activities while remaining a convenient distance to points East and South. Start your day with a trip to Kilauea Town and its bakery, general store, 'healthy hut' or other fun shops. Three beaches are within a 5 minute drive. Anini Beach is just ten minutes away. Hanalei, with famous bay beach, vintage plantation architecture, and eclectic shops is just a little further north. Continue further to Haena, tunnels and a look at Bali Hai. Find the trailhead off Ke'e Beach for a great hike.
Numerous white sandy beaches, Larsen's, Pilaa, Secret Beach, Anini, and Rock Quarry(Kahili), are within ten minutes from Hale Kokio. Be sure to grab the beach towels,chairs and snorkling equipment that we provide.

Our family is interested in gardening, fishing, photography and music and generally being near the ocean. In our travels, we discovered Kauai is perfect for these activities. Some family members call Kauai home, others of us visit as often as we can. Our community is welcoming, lifestyle is simple and the beauty of the island abundant. What more can we ask for, walks on the beach, cultivating our gardens, sharing harvests with friends, music by the fire, preparing meals of fresh fish and local produce.
Eleanor (NY) Rob (Kauai) purchased this cottage in 2006
We visited Kauai a number of times before our decision to purchase Hale Kokio in 2006. The property was in the perfect location, showcased the natural beauty of the North Shore in a neighborhood that was developing in authentic island style.
The grounds were so pretty and the design was perfect for additional planting and cultivation. We all decided that this was just the right place for us.
Hale Kokio is private, comfortable and welcoming. We handle all aspects of your stay, adding a personal touch. We know the island well, have family in Kauai and are happy to share what we know about the island.
Our private hot tub is a much appreciated feature. Views of the sunset from the grounds are an extra special experience. The night sky is amazing
We had a fabulous stay at Hale Kokio. What a wonderful home away from home. Thanks for sharing it with us
My wife and I stayed at Hale Kokio for a week in early January. It was the perfect home base—central enough that we could explore the rest of the island when we wanted to, and comfortable enough that when we didn't feel like leaving, we could stay at home and nap, read on the lanai, or soak in the hot tub. The house was absolutely spotless, with a bowl of fresh fruit waiting for us on our arrival. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all our meals, the bed was comfortable, and the little living room was perfect for evening reading, playing cards, and listening to music. During the day the house is bright and airy, and surprisingly cool despite the lack of air conditioning. At night, it becomes obvious how little light pollution there is on Kauai, especially out in the rural areas. The stargazing is spectacular.
Arachnophobic renters should be aware that there are quite a few spiders around the property; it’s just part of being on the Garden Island. I suspect Rob and Lisa clean webs up on a regular basis. (They’re all over the gardens, but just a few on the lanai and the exterior of the house. There were none whatsoever inside the house.) Neither of two most common varieties—Chinese crab spiders and the large, handsome Hawaiian garden spiders—are toxic or harmful to humans in any way, but they are around.
This is a fantastic rental. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay that feels remote but is still close to the attractions, this is the place for you. My wife and I have been to several of the islands, but after this last trip we decided that the next time we visit, there’s no reason to go anywhere other than Kauai. And when we’re on Kauai, we’ll stay at Hale Kokio.
I stayed at Hale Kokio for 2 weeks in September and it was the most amazing experience. I have been to the island 3 times and have learned to stay away from the "condo experience". I spent weeks on the internet looking for the perfect get away as this would be the first time I traveled alone (so what I wanted mattered this time!!) This place had it all. The grounds are just beautiful and serene. A couple of days I just spent enjoying the lush grounds, laying out in the yard and reading under the trees. The owners are very quiet and private but they are always available if you need anything. I came home to a coconut on my porch stripped, drilled and ready to drink one day! Thank you again for that treat!! I have no complaints whatsoever about Hale Kokio. I have recommended it to my parents who also visit the island frequently. There are many books, CDs, movies and the hot tub was such a welcoming treat and hot every day for me. I enjoyed the ice chest, boogie boards, snorkeling gear and more. The place is so secluded.. the only person I saw for the whole 2 weeks from the house was a grounds keeper mowing the lawns one day. Thank you so much for this most amazing experience. I will be back to Hale Kokio (hopefully in October)!!
We stayed at Hale Kokio for five days of our honeymoon, and we wish we had stayed there the whole time. It's wonderfully secluded, but within an easy drive of all the overwhelmingly beautiful north shore sites. It might be hard to tell from the pictures, but the yard is pretty big and surrounded by vegetation, so it's very private. We enjoyed nightly dips in the hot tub, cooking meals while listening to cd's in the house collection, and wandering around the yard to admire the banana, grapefruit, and lychee trees as well as the most beautiful flowers all over the yard. The house had everything we needed – great kitchen and cooking ware, plenty of towels, even beach stuff like snorkels and a body board.
This was a perfect place to escape from distractions and really slow down to spend some intimate time together as a couple. If we ever return to Kauai, it'll be hard not to come right back to Hale Kokio.
This is a charming and peaceful place in the middle of a huge tropical garden. Completely private. Comfortable. Nicely equipped kitchen and laundry. We enjoyed the jacuzi on the deck every night. Rob and Lisa, who live next door, were very nice and helpful.
We had a short but sweet stay at Hale Kokio while adventuring through Kauai. The owners went out of their way to make it a special experience. The grounds are as quiet and private as we had hoped. We had the hotel/condo experience while visiting with friends on other parts of the island, so it was great to have time in a more "home-y" environment.
We felt like the chickens were just part of the Kauai experience, and weren't bothered by them in the least. We met a sweet little kitty while grilling one night. She(?) was super friendly, and made us miss our kitties back home:(
Speaking of grilling, we love to cook, and were beyond pleased with the well-stocked kitchen. Everything we needed and nothing we didn't:) I especially appreciated the coffee grinder. Nothing better in the world than early morning coffee and a porch.
The bed was super comfy, and we loved sleeping with the windows open to let in the breeze and fall asleep to chirping critters.
Can't wait to return for a longer stay one day!
Hale Kokio was gorgeous and just what I needed. I was traveling by myself and had gone a long time without a break. I just wanted stillness and to hear the surf and birds in the trees. Everything about the cottage was as advertised. When I got there, Rob and Lisa left a bowl with fruit from trees on the property. The sounds of birds in the trees, strolling around the rolling lawn and the exquisite night skies all stay with me now, months later.
I don't have to say how beautiful Kauai is. I spent a week seeing the sights; snorkeling, hiking, and I know I barely scratched the surface.
I'm grateful that Hale Kokio and Kauai were there for me. As I get thrown back into the world, I will have a little place of peace in my heart from my vacation on Kauai.
Till the next time, Aloha.
The North Shore of Kauai hosts the towns of Kilauea, Princeville and Hanalei. Drive north from the cottage and you will come to a number of beaches (from the famous to quiet and secluded). Try snorkling, parasailing, fishing or swimming at Anini, surfing or paddling or catching the sun on Hanalei, a beach party at Lumahi or early morning stroll at Tunnels. (free guides to beaches are readily available on the island)
The town of Kilauea is a gem. Try breakfast at the Common Ground on the former guava plantation, Joe's Fruit Stand for smoothies, the Kilauea Fish market for take out or outdoor meal. The Kilauea Bakery, newly expanded Healthy Hut and the general store offer quality food and supplies. Kilauea hosts 2 weekly farmers' markets. Consider taking the short drive to the Lighthouse Point
Hanalei hosts ecclectic shops, art galleries, surf shops. Rent kyacks or arrange a river tour from Hanalei. Be sure to sample a 'shave ice' or Bubba Burger as you explore this town.
Princeville is known for its world class golf course. Check out the Princeville Ranch for its list of activities including Ziplining, Horseback Riding.
Travel further north to Napali Coast for hiking. Find Ke'e Beach at the end of the north road.
