Overview

Kauai Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 2)--close to the beach!

And not only secluded, but only a four and a half minute walk to a gorgeous and private beach! Gilligan's Beach Cottage is not like one of the houses packed into town--it is about 15 minutes east of Princeville in rural Kauai in an unspoiled, natural valley called Moloa'a. If you check it out on a map, you will find Moloa'a Bay in the upper right hand corner. Since there is very limited public parking near the beach, this beach is relatively undiscovered by tourists. Hollywood, however, did discover this idylic location in the 1960's and filmed the entire pilot episode of 'Gilligan's Island' here--thus, the name we chose.

Gilligan's Cottage is situated on a large rural lot which is filled with fruit and palm trees, to the delight of our guests. This valley is sparsely populated, and privacy and tranquility is what you will find here. Gilligan's has one bedroom, one full bath with a private outdoor Hawaiian Shower (which is very popular with our guests!). The cottage is fully modern in every way, yet still retains the charm of Old Hawaii in its plantation setting.

Moloa'a Beach--oh, the beach! Just a four and a half minute walk down a lovely paved country road. Very beautiful, very clean and very LONELY! Many times, you will be the ONLY one to be walking this beach watching turtles, picking up shells, and observing an occasional Monk seal. This is the type of setting in which you totally forget that there is a civilization!

But the nicest part--civilization is just a few minutes drive away from Gilligan's! You will notice that Moloa'a is centrally-located on Kauai, and after a day at restaurants, shopping, hiking, and touring paradise, you still have Gilligan's to come home to--only a dream away...

Kauai's little charm~Gilligans cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the adorable Gilligans cottage with the beautiful lush foliage and avocado tree on the deck plus mango and banana trees!

The cottage itself was very nice to stay in and comfortable. Great kitchen, well stocked with some basic spices and easentials to cook with.

We appreciated the boogies boards, nice beach chairs, & beach towels & snorkel gear.

Outdoor shower was a treat!

Enjoyed morning walks to the beach, (Gilligans island), to catch the sunrise. Very private and non-touristy.

Gilligans is also very centrally located which was nice for all the many adventures on the island. Grocery stores and shopping within 10-15 minutes.

Very nice and friendly property manager.

Totally recommend this vacation rental!

We love Moloa'a Bay

  • 5 of 5

We loved being at Gilligan's by Moloa'a Bay. The close location to the beach is wonderful. Though we’ve explored Moloa’a Bay many times, this week we found ourselves often at the reef on the north side of the bay rather than our usual place at the reef on the south side - both good, each one different. LOVED the outdoor shower and the solar hot water. The living space is so comfortable - light and airy with the tall ceiling. The kitchen is great - everything we need there for we two.

We really like being out of the main tourist zones, and Gilligan's is perfect - a relaxing walk to the beach - one of my favorite places on the planet. And be sure to go to nearby Larson's Beach as you might see some Monk seals. Explore any of the beaches on this magnificent northeast corner of Kauai - you won't be disappointed!

We’d love to visit Gilligan’s again sometime!

Last stop on the honeymoon

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the last stop of our honeymoon. Although Kauai was not our favorite of the islands, this cottage was great. Except for the roosters. They literally started crowing at 2am one night, and didn't stop til the next day. But you're going to get the roosters no matter where you stay in Kauai. The owner said it would take a couple nights to get used to them and he was right. By the third night, I was starting to sleep through them. Other than the roosters, this was a wonderful place. Definitely away from the touristy areas, but not a long drive. The beach is just down the hill. We saw turtles from the shore. The cottage itself was just the right size for the two of us and had a nice outdoor shower. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. Lots of dvd's and books to chose from in the cottage. Enjoyed some good old Gilligan's Island episodes :) Snorkeling gear provided as well! A great way to end our honeymoon. Thanks so much!

Great, great, great! Secluded and quiet (well, except for the roosters!!!)

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderfully restful stay at this property with my wife and two daughters who they shared the futon couch. The site has a large yard, two friendly (outdoor) cats, lots of roosters, and numerous fruit trees (all out of season during my stay, unfortunately...). An outdoor shower made post-beach cleanup very easy.

We slept every night with the windows open, letting the sounds of the surrounding jungle soothe us to sleep. House felt extremely safe and was well equipped to cook, do laundry, visit the beach, and the like. Lots of CDs, books, and DVDs in case the rain keeps you inside. Information from the owner prior to arrival was very comprehensive and accurate.

I highly recommend staying near Moloa'a Beach and this property puts your close enough to the beach to walk, but not no close that you have deal with beachgoers parking or wandering through your yard.

Outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. Papaya trees, avocado tree, limes and other citrus on deck. Beach a short walk down the hill. Nice waves to the right, mellow on the left. It was perfect for my wife and I. Adventure time.

Paradise at Gilligans

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week at Gilligans! We absolutely LOVED it! What a perfect fit for us!! Cute, quaint, cozy, homey, beautiful and peaceful are just a few ways to describe it! The beach at Moloaa Bay is perfect! The water was wonderful, the beach peaceful! I'm so glad that we chose to stay here and we will definitely be back again. If you are a resort type of a person then this probably wouldn't be a good choice for you! But if you want non touristy and privacy then please choose Gilligans! We felt as if we were at home there! Can't say enough! Aloha!
