About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible couch in living area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to our Lovely 1 acre Property with a charming cottage. If you love the country and privacy, Kapahi is for you, complete with down home hospitality.

We're minutes away from Gorgeous Beaches, quaint Kapa'a town and sweet Mom and Pop boutiques of all kinds. Many casual, fine dining and food trucks are in abundance.

We are half way between the North and South shores making trips easy. Your Sweet Private Cottage has all the makings of old Hawaii.

The entryway has been stamped with local ferns and palms. Around the corner is your private custom lanai, complete with hot outdoor shower, jetted tub, teak table and chairs, lounge chair and outdoor gas barbecue on beautiful farm raised ipe wood decking.

We do as the Hawaiian's do and leave our shoes in a little cubby outside by the door. It is a wonderful custom, both respectful of the home and helps to keep the outside where it belongs. Come relax, in your home away from home.

This lovely custom home has bamboo floors through out. The kitchen has bamboo, cabinetry, counters and a pantry filled with complementary items and all the gourmet needs for fine cooking. An antique table seats 4. A plantation style sofa bed makes for a comfortable living space along with a matching bamboo chair, ottoman, Flat screen TV & Board Games.

Your bedroom has a queen size bed, teak armoire, love seat, night stand, dresser and lovely local Hawaiian art work.

Your bathroom shower has a river rock floor & imported green slate walls. The early morning sun bathes the slate in gorgeous warm colors.

For your pleasure and relaxation, a massage table is available.

Off the kitchen, you'll find a shared Energy Star washer & dryer, using only natural suds that are provided for your use ~~

We have made every effort for our home to be ~~GREEN!!!~~ When building we used NO VOC paints & renewable bamboo flooring throughout. We used diatomaceous earth under the floor boards to help control pests. Only natural cleaning products are used to clean our home and these are available for your use. They include natural & scent free laundry soap, dish washing liquid, organic cleaners, made on Kauai hand soap & natural toilet paper. Your table is set to use cloth napkins with bamboo place mats. Your bed linens are 100% organic as well as your bath towels. We provide these for your safety, as well as our planet. Our organic fruit trees and vegetable garden can be used during your stay when available. We recycle, compost and offer clean delicious FILTERED WATER from our Whole House Purifier.

This is a fragrance and smoke free home. Natural botanicals are fine. Please be sure to have your items completely free of these substances before your arrival.

You will love the many organic fruit trees including: coconut, avocado, sour sop, lime, papaya's, banana, surinam cherry, mango, orange, lemon,mt apple & noni, depending upon season. A hammock is available farther down the rolling lawn under 2 shady mango trees, where you can listen to the song of the river and waterfall, below the property. For the adventurous there is access to this beautiful secluded waterfall nestled between state land, where you can take the plunge into its remote pool. Numerous hiking trails abound, both nearby off our country roads that lead to more private pools & waterfalls.

*Please note* Living in the country, you will likely come into contact with mosquitoes and ants. We have a mosquito net and organic spray that work for most people.

Ants are attracted to food left out, sugar and water. We use a safe way to keep them away as best as we can*

We have adult and children's bikes to explore nearby beaches and trails. Pack a picnic and you're off to see beautiful Kauai up close and personal !

Available for your use are Surf boards, Kayaks, Boogie Boards, Snorkel gear, Bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, Picnic supplies, badminton, croquet and LOTS more. We also have a fire pit, which is great for relaxing by the warmth of the fire & listening to the cricket serenade!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excerpts from a thank you card received,

Dear Holly & Rick,

I wanted to thank you so much for your hospitality. Your home and property are amazing. We had such a wonderful time. Should we find ourselves fortunate enough to visit again, we will definitely want to stay with you. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fruit and all the equipment in the sports shack! We were able to experience so many beautiful places while we were there. After all we had been through before our arrival, it was such a blessing to find time to heal in such an amazing place. May God bless and keep you well. The world would be a better place with more wonderful people like you. In love, D & M

An amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about Holly and Rick. They were so accommodating, making my husband and I feel like we were right at home. It's definitely not easy traveling with a 9 month old but they had set up the place to make our stay as easy as possible. We trusted them so much that they even watched our daughter one day while we went out on a boat tour of the NaPali coast.

My husband and I have traveled all over the world and this was by far our favorite place we've ever stayed. Every morning we would go in the backyard and pick fresh papayas, oranges, bananas, and avocados for breakfast. Our daughter would light up every morning when we walked over to see their 2 pet pigs, 2 friendly cats and their loving dog Hunter (a bonus to the place). The cottage was so cozy and decorated with such charm. I can not say enough about our stay. Look no further, this is the place!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your very gracious review. We loved having you all here and it was a delight to get to know your precious baby. We're so happy that you loved it here and were able to take advantage of our fruit trees. There is nothing like waking up and picking your own fruit for fresh orange juice, a smoothie, fruit salad and much more. Our animals are our lives here and we're so happy to share them with our guests.Thank you for your wonderful words of gratitude. We so appreciate them and YOU! We hope to see you all again one day. Till then, be well and A...LO......HA !! 🌺🐬

Beautiful and off the beaten path. Great location to take advantage of the entire island.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hale Mala Pua in late October 2017 and really enjoyed it. We were looking for a quiet place that was off the beaten track and that was conveniently located to take advantage of the entire island. Hale Mala Pua fit that bill perfectly. Rick and Holly have created a very special place. Holly was away during our visit and Rick was very helpful getting us settled in and helping us load the Kayak on our car. The private lanai, yard and mountainous jungle setting of this property is stunning. We loved being greeted by Hunter the dog in the evening as we returned from busy days playing on Kauai. The waterfall is very cool, figuratively and literally. Having access to a wide variety of outdoor gear is great. Our only regret is that we had such a short stay. If you don’t need to be right on the beach, and like to travel around the island when you visit, this is the place. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Truly a piece of paradise with everything we could possible want or need at hand!

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly a piece of paradise! The first impression pulling into the drive is a secluded, tropical home. The cottage was perfect for us and had everything we needed to make our stay in kauai memorable. The sports shack also had everything we could possible want in order to enjoy the beautiful waters of kauai, from beach blankets, chairs and coolers to snorkling gear and kayaks, plus much more! Rick and Holly left no detail out! And the property...truly breathtaking! There are amazing fruit trees full of avocados, bananas, and lemons for our enjoyment. The view of the hills and mountains was stunning...and then there was the waterfall and stream...beautiful! Overall this trip was incredible. We were truly able to relax, knowing everything we needed to enjoy kauai was right there. Mahalo for making this vacation a very memorable one!

Home away from home, but in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Holly and Rick are the most gracious hosts. They work really hard to provide such a comfortable and lovely place to relax after a long day exploring the island. She told us to not buy bottled water because her water was yummy and it was! I felt good about not having to buy plastic bottles and littering the island with my waste. The bed was comfy, everything I needed was in the cottage and even though we didnt get a chance to use the equipment in the sports shack, she has everything you need from water shoes to kayaks and bikes. A good place to stay for you adventurous folks! If you want to relax, theres a hot tub on the lanai and the most beautiful waterfall behind her property. Speaking of which, we got married on her property, down by the waterfall and Holly did such a beautiful job with coordinating it all, I'm forever grateful to her.

If you have pets, and miss your pets while on vacation, this is a GREAT place to stay because they have a dog, 3 cats and a pig! The white kitty was my favorite, he came to visit me and spent time with me on the lanai on our last day.

Rick and Holly do have their rules and if you have trouble doing that you probably shouldnt stay here. For example, no perfumes and our mosquito spray had to be natural- no deet, and no smoking. Some may think they're silly, but I appreciated not smelling hints of smoke or obnoxious perfume from the last guests.

The only thing that would deter me from staying here again would be the mosquitos. We brought one bottle of Badger Balm, a natural repellent containing citronella and lemon oils- bring two!! Other than that, its all part of island living. The bugs, the geckos...the roosters and the sound of exotic birds and frogs. I usually sleep with a sound machine and we had our own sounds of nature.

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend her if you're eloping or want a small private place to celebrate your union. Truly magical! Thank you Rick and Holly!
