Our guests rave about the magic of Hale Kokio. You will find chaise lounges in the shade of the monkey pod trees, a hammock tucked by the banana patch and a gas grill at the side of the cottage. Explore the gardens where you will find a wide variety of flowering plants and tropical fruit trees. The gardens are maintained with sustainable gardening practices.

Combine active days exploring the island with quiet times at your island retreat. You can enjoy the comfort of the cozy sofa and smart TV indoors or a restorative soak in the hot tub on the lanai. Enjoy a meal at the kitchen bar or set a festive table for a meal on the lanai. Be sure to turn on the fairy lights for a touch of magic.

About Eleanor (NY) Rob (Kauai)

Our extended family is interested in gardening, fishing, photography and music and generally being near the ocean. In our travels, we discovered Kauai is perfect for these activities. Some family members, pictured above, call Kauai home, others of us visit as often as we can. Hale Kokio is a family owned property. Our community is welcoming, lifestyle is simple and the beauty of the island abundant. What more can we ask for?walks on the beach, cultivating our gardens, sharing harvests with friends, music by the fire, preparing meals of fresh fish and local produce.

Eleanor (NY) Rob (Kauai) purchased this cottage in 2006

We visited Kauai a number of times before our decision to purchase Hale Kokio in 2006. The property was in the perfect location, showcased the natural beauty of the North Shore in a neighborhood that was developing in authentic island style.

The grounds were so pretty and the design was perfect for additional planting and cultivation. We all decided that this was just the right place for us.

Perfect Kauai experience

  • 5 of 5

Hale Kokio embodies everything Kauai. Nature, tranquility, peacefulness, beauty...I could go on.

It's a place you leave and then dream about.

It's a place you wake up in the morning and decide which beach paradise to spend the day at.

It's a place you come back to, grill a piece of fresh fish, relax in the hot tub, and then fall asleep to the sounds of nature.

No, it's not right on the beach. On the other hand it's perfectly situated for short trips to the best the north and east side of the island offer.

Truly a fantastic place with equally fabulous hosts.

An absolute oasis on the garden isle

  • 5 of 5

Hale Kokio made our stay on Kauai unforgettable. It’s location puts you in the perfect spot to explore the north shore like Hanalei or Princeville, but is also close enough to Kapa’a and Lihue that it doesn’t feel like a road trip. Rob left us flowers and fresh fruit for our arrival, and was so helpful in answering any of our questions. We had a few rainy mornings during our stay; standing on the lanai and watching the rain fall on the property was so blissful. Experience Hale Kokio for yourself if you can, we’re lucky to have them share this magical place with us all!

Private oasis in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time spent here. The grounds are immaculate, the cottage is clean and tasteful. The ample grounds provided privacy. It was a great base to explore the island. We picked and ate lilikoi and avocado from the trees, ate breakfast on the lanai each morning and took a soak in the hot tub ea evening. We plan on coming back and will recommend to all our friends looking for a place on Kauai.
