About the property

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Experience the incredible beauty of the north shore at the Garden Cottage in Haena, Kauai, located in the heart of the most beautiful 10 miles of the island. We are close to Tunnels Beach, and set between 2 of the top 5 rated beaches on the islands. Kepuhi beach is 50 yards down the driveway; directly behind is lush jungle hillside, the border to 1000's of acres of private nature conservancy land. All tucked into a quiet, secluded, tree lined cul-de-sac.

The private, cozy cottage interior features a high open-beam ceiling, wood floors, and tropical décor, along with cooking facilities. Outside is a private shower with a spectacular view of the jungle, private deck, barbecue, tiki torches to enjoy the evening, and all the style of old Hawaii.

If you are seeking a Honeymoon hideaway or romantic getaway...Relax to the soothing sound of rolling surf, enjoy a bonfire on your private beach, and just minutes away is Hanalei with restaurants, dancing and entertainment. You can walk the beach the entire final 2 miles to Ke’e, where the road ends and the famous Napali coast begins. Or you can walk the beach just 300 yards to the Hanalei Colony Resort, for the only (award winning) restaurant and coffee house on this part of the island. Or just take our beach chairs and walk the few steps to the beach out front!

We are an approved Kauai Vacation Rental TVNC #1052.

About Katie Howland

About the owners Doug, Bev, Miranda, and Katie Howland: Doug and Bev were first drawn to Kauai in the early 80’s, after many visits they finally decided to buy this wonderful property in 2006. Doug, a 35-year designer/builder, has spent the last 10 years personalizing the house. Bev, a jack-of-all-trades, has owned a health food store, opened a charter elementary school, run a motel, and managed their various properties over the years. Their youngest daughter Katie lives in Portland with her older sister Miranda. After a career in the arts, she now manages the family’s properties. Doug and Beverly now migrate between their properties in Arizona, Utah, and Hawaii. They like to hike, horseback ride, ski, practice yoga, whitewater raft, dance, and travel in their free time.

They also have vacation rentals in the Escalante Canyons of Southern Utah and in the town of Sedona in Northern Arizona.

Katie Howland purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Katie Howland chose Kauai

Doug and Bev were always drawn to the North Shore, when making the decision to put down roots, they couldn’t resist the best part of the island. They fell in love with the unique beauty of their home that balances both accessibility and seclusion.

What makes this cottage unique

There are many amazing natural wonders right out the front door (see above). This home offers the lush mountainous jungle of Kauai out the back door and the soothing beach and ocean out the front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a gem this cottage is! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and thank you for sharing part of your homestead! Loved the noises at night and all the birds in the morning. This place has everything we needed-especially-tranquility! Mahalo!

Perfect Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great little cottage with a true tropical jungle feel. Loved all the louvred windows that allowed the ocean breeze/crashing waves to lull me to sleep. Awesome secluded outdoor shower. Easy walk to a small beach across the street... quick drive to Tunnels Beach, Ke'e Beach/Napali Coast Trailhead. Patricia is always available and a great resource. Can't wait to return!

What a gem

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I enjoyed 2 nights at this lovely, charming, cozy cottage, tucked away on a beautiful property. I didn't want to leave. It felt so secluded and special. Everything was clean and cared for nicely.

Great Private Honeymoon Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four amazing nights at the private garden cottage on the north shore. Katie made it very easy to book and sent us a lot of great information including directions and helpful island tips. The cottage has a beach in close walking distance and the cottage is also located minutes away from Tunnels Beach which is our new favorite snorkeling spot. The north shore is a very beautiful and relaxing place and there is not a bad view any where you look. The outdoor shower is very cool and the cottage has everything you need to cook your own meals. If you don't like to cook there are some great food options under 15 mins away in Hanalei. We would book again on our next trip to Kauai.

Romantic cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival we were so impressed with how cozy and cleanly the cottage was, the location was very private and quiet. It was so helpful with all the items they offer with the rental such as surfboard, coolers, chairs etc...Everything in this rental was well maintained and in good working order. We really enjoyed finding different wild fruits in the yard and surrounding areas, the beach across the way was beautiful to walk over and watch the sun come up, we were usually the only ones there. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone, it was such an amazing stay, we hope to be back in the future!!

Secluded Garden Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice. It took awhile getting use to taking a shower outside. Definitely cuts down on the wet feeling if we took a shower indoors. The mosquitoes loved us. I did take my mosquito gear, which helped a little. Upon check out, I found the bug zapper in the closet, which I would recommend using as well. We wanted a place that felt secluded and that was exactly what we got.

All of the amenities were useful. The standing fan was our best friend. We got married on Tunnels Beach so the location was perfect. We spent a lot of time in Hanalei. For fine dining, we enjoyed dinner at Makena Terrace. For a hidden treasure, we had Sushi Girl, which is super close to the property.

The property is close to the highway, but it's set back far enough that we did not even hear any traffic noise. Earplugs were not necessary for the roosters. The first night of rain took some getting use to, by the next night, it lulled us to sleep.

After our wedding ceremony, we and the entire town did have a power outage for a few hours. I think it was from construction going on the highway. Hanalei had power so we were able to eat there. Enjoy!
