There are two homes on the property, a 3 Bedroom Main House and a Newly remodeled 1 Bedroom Ocean Suite. Please read below as we have multiple rental options.
The 2 homes can be rented together or you may rent one of the two during The 'off-season' (see below). We only rent to one party any given time period so if you rent one of the two homes you will be the only guests on the 13 acre property and will have exclusive private access to the sunset deck, hot tub, and grounds. The two homes can be rented together all year long, and we offer a substantial discount for renting both (See Details below)
3 Bedroom Plantation Style home- 2 king sized master bedrooms with attached bathrooms. One smaller sized room with a trundle bed that pulls out to 2 twin beds. A third full bathroom is directly outside the small bedroom. There is also a queen sized pull out couch in the living room. This home has a large open kitchen/living/dining area, which is great for family gatherings as well as an attached rear Lanai (porch) with panoramic ocean and garden views. The home is fully appointed with a chef worthy kitchen, High Quality linens, and comfortable island style furnishings. Amenities include high speed wireless, HD cable TV, phone with free long distance throughout North America (now also Canada and Mexico), iPod docking stereo, kids toys and books, and much more (full list below) Kauai’s trade winds keep the house quite cool, but we do offer Air conditioning in the two master bedrooms. This home was completely updated in 2009. We also provide four hybrid style bicycles, snorkel gear, coolers, and beach chairs.
1 Bedroom Ocean Suite – Brand new renovation just available September 2014!
This house sits perched on top of a valley leading down to the beautiful secret beach and the ocean views are amazing! The 785 sq. ft. Suite is fully equipped with a well appointed kitchen, washer dryer, full bath with rain shower, King bed, 42” flat screen TV, Bluetooth IPod stereo, phone with free long distance in North America (now also Canada and Mexico), HD digital Cable TV and Wireless internet, and quality furnishings. The outside space offers a large sunset deck with an outdoor dining table, seating area, hot tub, outdoor shower, and two lounge chairs. Enjoy stunning sunset views from the deck or the living room and fall asleep to the sounds of the waterfall in the valley below.
Jungle Bee Farms is a Cacao or Chocolate farm, but the plant diversity is impressive.
You will have 13 acres to explore on our private trail between the homes and the beach. Secret beach is one of Kauai’s true gems. With its limited public access you can enjoy this mile long stretch of white sand beach practically by yourself. Secret beach offers experienced surfers world-class waves in the winter and is usually calm in the summer. In your wanderings, you’ll discover nature’s bounty as you walk through our exotic fruit orchards, pick tropical flowers, and enjoy the two magical waterfalls on the property.
If it sounds like you’ve discovered the Garden of Eden, you’ve got the right idea

Dear JungleBee Family,
We want to thank you for so generously sharing this beautiful piece of the planet with us. Your property is so incredibly beautiful, peaceful, well-loved and cared for, we are grateful to have been able to experience and enjoy it.
It is so gracious of you to provide the big and small accouterments that add so much: the bikes, snorkel gear, ice chests & beach gear; the fruit, muesli, honey, coffee, chocolate and eggs; all the necessities that were already stocked, such as paper goods, luxurious soaps, cleaning supplies, and the extras kept on hand as well, such as DVD's, the puzzle, the guide books. We'd just like you to know that we appreciate all the attention to the details of your guests' comfort, and how much your graciousness added to our enjoyment.
Frank, Lorna and Noemma
P.S. Melody's housekeeping talents are incredible...the house ws SPOTLESS, and extremely well-organized, with attention given to even the smallest of details.
Jimmy is an excellent host. We loved the property, its beyond beautiful. The walk down to the beach is amazing, but perhaps a little challenging for the very old and very young, and you will need a car. Its is very well equipped and Jimmy will sort out all of your needs.
We spent a week in the Ocean Suite which was ideally sized for just two of us. The online pictures don't do justice to the decor and the general feel of this beautiful bungalow. The views are breathtaking, the full moon and stars were mind-blowing, the deck and valley overlook are awe-inspiring and best of all, one feels as if there is no one else for miles around. The only sounds we heard were waves, tropical birds, occasional raindrops and the ubiquitous rooster crows. I have been to Kauai many, many times and have never experienced the island from such an exquisite spot.
Aside from the wonderful suite, the rain forest trail down to Secrets Beach was something we enjoyed everyday. We are avid outdoor enthusiasts so we didn't mind the sometimes slippery mud and overgrowth, but potential renters should be aware that it is a 1/2 mile walk down a sometimes steep path to reach the beach. For those less adventurous or traveling with young children there is nearby access by car.
Everything mentioned by other reviewers is absolutely true. The grounds are immaculately maintained, the fruit gathering is like a daily scavenger hunt and "Amber" the chicken made us laugh out loud because she truly believes she is a dog and not a chicken...she actually comes running when you whistle for her.
Honestly, we are conflicted about writing a review because this place is so over-the-top amazing we'd like to have it available just for us anytime we want to return. But in the aloha spirit generated by this very special spot, we want to support Jimmy and Pete so that they may continue to offer this bit of paradise to the rest of us for many years to come.
We had a fabulous stay at this home and ocean suite, jimmy does a great job of maintaining the property and it shows in both the inside and the grounds! We love Amber the chicken although be prepared for the fact she wants o be fed. We loved every minute. Our kids and grandkids stayed in the main house. We stayed in the ocean suite which is very private. The walk to secret beach is stunning.
Jungle Bee was the most beautiful place you could imagine. Jimmy has landscaped the property perfectly in that it feels like you are in the middle of a tropical jungle, but it was done with a really lovely sense of aesthetics. The Ocean View Cottage must have been redone recently and is perfect. The main house has everything you could possibly need.
We were a family group of three generations, and Jimmy took so much time showing us around the extensive property. The children loved the goats! The adults loved picking the fresh fruit. Most of the fruit wasn't ready for picking until a few weeks after our stay, but the papayas were amazing. For someone staying late July-early August, there would be mangos, avocados, pomegranates, jackfruit, and on and on. One of my favorite things was sitting in the hot tub at night and looking at the stars.
Kauai is paradise and Jungle Bee is a truly great place to stay.
This was our third stay at Jungle Bee, a truly unique experience on the island of Kauai. Lush tropical surroundings, beautifully maintained and cared for along with stunning ocean and mountain vistas truly make this home a paradise. Coffee and yoga on the deck each morning was an amazing experience. Secret beach, a 10 min walk, is gorgeous but big waves so not a lot of ocean time for little ones. There are plenty of other beaches within a 10 min drive for small ones. All of the beaches on the north shore are amazing and unique in their own way so you will want to spend time exploring.
Any needs we had were taken care of quickly by Jimmy. You can tell that the owners really care that people enjoy their home and have a great experience. A great quiet place for a family vacation where the kids can spend lots of time outside (with bug spray) exploring, chasing lizards and frogs, and enjoying the wild chickens and their babies. Roosters not so enjoyable, bring your earplugs, but this is true EVERYWHERE on Kauai.
Thanks again for another lovely stay.
Our family of 6 comfortably stayed here for a week. The cottage is very very nice!! The main house is nice too- but could use some upgrading in little places (needs a new coffeemaker and a toaster that works!)
Overall the house is very well maintained, the property and neighborhood are impeccable. The town close by is absolutely lovely.
We had a very nice stay, and i would stay here again
