Overview

Hanalei Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom ohana cottage with mountain valley and jungle views.

The Song of the Jungle is perched high up on the hillside that overlooks the mountains and valley. It is at the end of the street and is surrounded by thousands of acres of tropical rainforest.It is 1/4 mile off the main road and enjoys the quietude of no traffic noise, just river, ocean and song birds.

The Song of the Jungle is an 'ohana' unit built on the first story of a large home. It is situated at the far end of the home so enjoys its own space and privacy. It is comprised of about 800 sq ft and has four rooms. There is a large bedroom/sitting area with a queen bed and french doors that lead out onto a separate enclosed lanai that overlooks the valley and jungle. This enclosed lanai has a bistro table for romantic dining and a king sized fold out futon couch for those who wish to sleep watching the stars. The kitchen area leads off from the other side of the bedroom and is separated by sliding glass doors with bamboo drapes. It is a moderately large kitchen with a double day bed. The bathroom with shower ( no tub) leads off from the third side of the bedroom. There is also an enclosed outdoor tigerwood shower. The kitchen area leads out onto the garden pathways where there are areas to read, lounge or dine,

The 'Song' is 1/4 mile from a grocery store hub, burrito takeout, gift store and beachfront. You easily enjoy the rain forest and the ocean too.

When you stay in the ' Song' you will wake up to a symphony of tropical birds, walk out through french doors onto your own private enclosed lanai and have morning coffee while you enjoy unobstructed mountain views where white egrets glide gracefullly across the valley. You can stroll though the gardens of jungle plants and tropical blooms or down the country lane to a quaint local grocery store. In the evening just sit on the enclosed lanai, gaze up at the star filled nite sky, and hear the gentle sound of the river below and the distance surf.

If you are lucky and get an early morning rain then you'll be blessed with rainbows arching the valley, . A short walk will get you to some of the best beaches in the world: Tunnels, Shell, Wainiha, Lumahai! Three miles away is Hanalei town where shopping, the restaurants, and even a little nite action can be found in a cozy beachtown atmosphere.

About Dawn McConnell

.I moved to Kauai with my daughter in 2004 for health reasons. My health greatly improved ( Kauai is good for that) and my daughter went back to the mainland to university. This home seemed a bit big for me alone so I began sharing it with travelers , guest house style. I now am blessed to meet amazing people ( for the most part) from all around the world. People who chose this place tend to be unique, gentle souls who fit into the local atmosphere her with ease and grace. It has been a lot of fun for me.

Dawn McConnell purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Dawn McConnell chose Hanalei

I never chose a vacation rental however I chose the house here because I am a world traveller and this place is one of the most amazing places, on many levels , that I have encountered in my life. As the locals say, it has' good mana'

What makes this bungalow unique

I am a writer and a photographer .The possibilities are of what can be captured on film and in words here are , each day, endlessly, timelessly fresh. The ocean, the jungle and the rivers are all right there. And the weather, well, pretty darn easy to take.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't tell you how many times on our trip my boyfriend has said "picking our bungalo was the best move of the trip" And it is true! Kauai has been absolutely breathtaking but getting to come back every day to the "Song of the Jungle" has made our vacation more than memorable. Keep up the great work here! We will definately be back.

Can't wait to come back

We loved the time we spent at 'Song of the Jungle.' It was such a beautiful and peaceful place- like staying in a treehouse. We did lots of hiking in the area, which was beautiful. Our only issue was that we heard the TV from the people above us one evening when we were sitting on the lanai. We went and asked them to turn it down and they did so immediately, so it was no problem. Everyone we met here, including the owner, were very friendly. We cannot wait to come back and are already thinking about our next trip. We were there at the time when two potential hurricanes came through the area. We had some heavy rain, but we just enjoyed listening to it from the lanai. Wonderful!

The outdoor tigerwood shower is glorious!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely and comfortable stay at Song of the Jungle - oh - the outdoor tigerwood shower!! So relaxing after a day of hiking, snorkeling, or site-seeing. We loved having coffee on the lanai every morning, watching the sun glisten on the green mountain. We had many adventures during our week in Kauai, but our favorite was seeing the Doug and Sandy McMaster Slack Key Guitar concert in Hanalei - genuine and soulful - a must see (shows are usually on Sunday or Friday afternoons - look them up for more details). Thank you, Dawn, for thinking of everything we might need - from snorkel gear to soft pillows - we appreciated it! We highly recommend Song of the Jungle for those who want to stay somewhere unique, special, and affordable...can't wait to return.

Second times a charm.

  • 5 of 5
Having stayed with Dawn before I thought I remembered all there was to remember of the island and of the property. Think again. I forgot how comfortable, relaxed and at home you feel once you get there. Beaches are only a short drive away, hiking anywhere from a short 15 minute drive to two hours away. Souvenir shopping is close by, and ask Dawn where the locals do there shopping. After a busy day shopping in Lihue or Poipu, snorkeling at Tunnels, hiking the Kalalau trail or Waimea canyon and the Alakai swamp or touring Kauai Coffee, it is so nice to come back to the property. A relaxing shower in one of the outdoor showers, a nice barbecue and some down time on one of the outdoor lanai's, that's when " No hurry, no worry" sinks in. To me the mornings are special, you wake to the songs of the birds in the surrounding jungle and the morning views over the river valley are spectacular. Dinner at Postcards in Hanalei, world class seafood. So much to do for all ages. Dawn is proud of her property and is always trying to improve it so her guests can just relax and enjoy their holiday. I said it before and will say it again, I'm coming back!!!

Made Kauai that much better to visit

  • 5 of 5
Hi Dawn,

I wanted to let you know that I had a great time while staying in the Jungle. The house was more than comfortable, clean, private and provided all the amenities someone would need to live there. The jungle setting was better than I expected and was very peaceful, especially when it rained with the breeze flowing through the windows. It provided for me a part of Kauai you don't always get to see and stay in as I normally have stayed close to the beach in town. It was a nice walk down the road to Sushi Girl and the beach and not far at all to Hanalei by car or bike. I would recommend staying at your place to anyone and would definitely like to stay again as it made my vacation that much better. PS: the outdoor shower was nice, I want to build one now at my house although its pretty cold where I live.

Love, Light and Rainbows!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend picked the Song of the Jungle as a surprise "romantic" getaway for us and he couldn't have made a better choice! We loved that it was tucked away in the jungle yet still only minutes from the beaches and Hanalei town and the Kalalau trail. We surf so it was great being close to such amazing surfing spots. The cottage is really sweet and cosy and the bed is awesomely comfy. There are french doors that open out from the bedroom to a screened lanai area that overlooks the jungle and the mountains. If you leave the french doors open you can lie in bed and see the stars and listen to the waves breaking in the distance. It was an amazing feeling to wake up in the morning and hear the sounds of the birds and the flowing river. I especially liked the sound of the cooing jungle doves. We felt like we were on an exotic adventure in another country. The outdoor jungle shower is the icing on the cake. There was a couple staying in the upstairs apartment for their honeymoon and I think it gave my boyfriend ideas because he proposed!!!..... so it looks like now we'll be coming back for OUR honeymoon. Thanks Dawn for this 'song' in the jungle. Highly recommend!

Wonderful place to call home for a few days :)

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the beautiful little bungalow in the fascinating Wainhia Valley. The place was clean and had everything that one would need. Dawn was very sweet and genuine and made our stay as comfortable as possible, even in the midst of one of the stormiest nights of the year. We will certainly be back soon! Aloha
