Peacefulness and Natural Beauty. Enjoy the ambiance of old Hawaii from this quaint rental location. A narrow unpaved winding road leads to Moloaa Mahina Hale which is within a small beach community on Kauai’s Northeastern shore. Watch the Egret Birds return to their nesting grounds at rivers edge. View an abundance of stars from your private deck which is breathtaking on a clear night. Listen as you hear the waves crashing at nearby Moloaa Bay. Only a 5 minute walk or Kayak to experience one of Kauai most beautiful bays offering white sand beaches with shade tree protection, interesting tide pools and good snorkeling . Hike along a gentle pathway high above the oceanside to a bird sanctuary offering incredible views of Moloaa Bay and the coastline. You may see whales or dolphins playing in the bay.
Natural Environment Setting: A creative environment for individuals who seek peace and tranquility in their lifestyle. The setting is all natural with established tropical flora, fruit bearing trees and plantings. This location also has the natural wildlife sounds from the bellowing of the bullfrogs, numerous birds, wild ducks, and of course the famous and colorful chickens that are now sited everywhere on Kauai. Perhaps earplugs would be suggested for those who are light sleepers. Mosquitoes are limited due to the brackish water consisting of both ocean and fresh water.
No Air Conditioning: There is no air conditioning in this unit. We offer ceiling fans, portable Vernardo fans and the natural trade winds to help keep you cool. The hottest part of the day is between 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm We suggest planning your day outside the unit during this time period to avoid the discomfort for those who can't take the heat or take a swim in Moloaa Bay or kayak down the river to the beautiful Moloaa Bay that will cool you down with ocean breezes and large shade trees along the shoreline. For sun lovers, the deck is an incredible tanning location from early morning until late afternoon.
We offer Wi Fi Internet; Satellite Dish TV with commercial free musical stations. Enjoy TV in bedroom or living room. Enjoy native wild life surrounding this location and birds bouncing about in the enormous monkeypod tree offering shade and beauty to this site. The large deck has a table with two straight or reclining chairs and one lounge. A cold water washing machine is on the deck for added convenience with an outside clothes line for air fresh drying.
There are also lovely and relaxing reading locations on this property. Take your pick.
The spacious bedroom offers a king size bed with its own TV and ceiling fans and an exit door to the back lanai offering easy access in the night to star gaze just outside your bedroom. The bathroom has a tub/shower combination with good water pressure.. Some prefer the outdoor shower below with hot & cold water.
The living area has it's own TV with a sofa and two chairs, a small cozy dining table and a casual buffet counter. Like to read? Sit in the reading nook to enjoy the morning sun filtering thru the window across from the kitchen.
Perfect get-away with a short walk (or paddle) from a beautiful uncrowded beach. We enjoyed getting up to the sounds of croaking bullfrogs and roosters. We were free to pick lemons/limes, oranges, and avocados on the property. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bed is extremely comfortable. It was nice having a washer available on the back deck and clothesline in a rain-protected area. It only rained one day in our almost two week stay. It was fun to have available the kayak for paddling to the beach. We loved seeing the egrets come in every evening. We do suggest finding the property in the daylight as it is "tucked away" at the end of a dirt road - but we found it easy to navigate once we knew how to get there. This was the perfect "jungle experience" - yet a nice central location to other sites on the island.
My wife and I stayed here for 5 days during Christmas week. What a fantastic place! We enjoyed the fresh avocados falling from the tree every day (if we got to them before the chickens;) and the beautiful landscaping that surrounds the house. It's really cool to stay in a house that hovers 2 stories in the air on columns... you feel like you are living in the trees. We enjoyed several breakfasts and dinners in the nice open kitchen. The bed is very comfortable. Moloaa Bay is gorgeous and rarely crowded. Only a few minute walk from the house or 5 minute paddle down the lagoon -- if you're quiet, you'll see several egrets hanging around, and frogs! The dirt road to the house is a little adventure in a small rental car, but all the better because it keeps the crowds away. The area is very quiet and lovely. There's a great hike to the left of Moloaa Bay, and if you're willing to continue through the ranch, we've heard you can walk all of the way to Larsen's Beach. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We stayed here for 3 nights and it was so relaxing. The home is clean, bright and airy. We could walk 5 minutes to beautiful Moloa'a Bay or take the kayak along the river to the beach. Amazing! The deck is perfect for relaxing after a good swim on the beach, having a bbq, or simply enjoying a glass of wine and listening to the Hawaiian songbirds. The wifi works well and the fans were more than we needed for keeping the house cool. The next time we visit Kauai we will definitely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us.
We stayed three nights at the St Regis and three nights at Moloaa Mahina Hale during our week vacation in Kauai. We loved both places for very different reasons. This is a great house for a couple since it is only one bedroom. The house itself is not fancy but it is very clean and comfortable. There is plenty of room to spread out. All in all, it was a wonderfully relaxing three days and in a great location convenient to north and east shore destinations. The house itself is very private despite being right next door to another rental. The dirt is road is fairly rough and could be slippery in heavy rains but we handled it just fine in our compact rental car (The house is hard to find if you are driving in for the first time after dark). I was really worried about lack of air conditioning but it turned out to be just fine with all the fans they provide. We did not get the best sleep here. Since the windows have to be open for air, you can hear the roosters crow at 3 in the morning. I recommend bringing ear plugs if it bothers you. This is a common problem in Kauai but if you are really worried about it, get a place with AC so you can close the windows. The house is well equipped with a full kitchen (stock up at the market in Kapaa or Lihue), outdoor gas grill, laundry, beach towels, chairs, snorkel stuff, etc. Our favorite part was the kayak to Moloaa Bay and the beautiful grounds. We ate avocado and star fruit off the tree and noticed some unripe bananas, some type of citrus, and what looked like guava. The nearby Moloaa bay is spectacular and private - especially at sunrise. Also, nearby Larson Beach was nice. Ke'e and Tunnels are not that far of a drive. Don't miss the nearby Moloaa Sunrise Fruit Stand for breakfast/lunch. I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a unique spot off the beaten path. If you are willing to live without the "luxury condo experience" and can deal with the lack of AC and noisy roosters, you will be richly rewarded. As a side note, the owners and their realty firm were nice and very easy to deal with.
Ok so we live in Maui and we did Kauai for our Honeymoon. I just have to say if you want a quiet, peaceful, serene setting this is it. If you want Hawaii and to experience Hawaii this is it. We ate star fruit and papayas straight from the trees in the yard. There's a picker below the house and we used the kayak to paddle down to the beach. This place is amazing and when I go back to Kauai I will definitely stay here. Thank you to the owners for making this special place available.
We have stayed on this wonderful island a few times and have always stayed in the "condo" zones in various places. This place is off the beaten path but the beauty and solitude are well worth the road that leads to this house. The kitchen is well equipped with all the comforts of home. There is a bbq that we utilized almost nightly. We made smoothies every morning from the star fruit, passion fruit, papaya and banana trees that are on this property. We hit a wet stretch of weather during our stay but still enjoyed the beaches, hikes and paddle boarding. Moloaa bay is such beautiful beach that is just a few steps (or paddles) away. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for peace and tranquility. My wife and I would definitely stay here again.
Moloaa Mahina Hale (House of the Lazy Moon) is unique because it is a rare and comfortable retreat for those seeking a private and somewhat secluded location. You can hear and smell the ocean but get only a tiny glimpse from your cottage which is only a stones throw away. Become part of the small community for your stay. You can take a short five minute walk to beautiful Moloaa Bay which is an interesting beach offering surfing, snorkeling, sunbathing and beach combing. Take an easy pathway to the north all along the Bay to where it ends at a fenced Bird Reserve. Due to limited public access and parking, Moloaa Bay is not very well attended making it one of the more private beaches on Kauai. You are 3 miles from the Anahola General Store providing sufficient convenience items. and is located next door to the Anahola Post Office and the Famous Ono Char Burger Stand. Moloaa is located half way between Anahola and Kilauea Town. You are only 10 minutes to the Sugar Mill Town of Kilauea and it's famous Light House rencently named after Senator
" Daniel Inouye " and Bird Refuse Center and 20 minutes away from Hanalei Town with lots of shops and restaurants and the beautiful Hanalei Bay. Drive out of Moloaa Valley to view other wonders of The Magical Garden Island
Other Activities: Kayaking, Snorkeling, Surfing, Hiking
