About the property

One Bedroom Cottage, Private and Pretty, Convenient Location, Close to 3 Beaches

A guest comment says it best. 'If you want a beautiful hideaway, this is it!! The grounds are wonderful, like a private park. Its quiet, relaxed and absolutely a wonderful retreat. Close to the main road yet far enough away so you never hear traffic, beaches a mile or so away and many good restaurants as well as grocery stores nearby. We liked it so much we extended our stay and will always cherish the memories of our time there. Truly a place of the “aloha spirit.”' - Guest comment

Imagine a vacation set in the magnificent North Shore of Kauai, on two tropical acres, with a bright and airy cottage. The cottage has on open floor plan and incudes a bright and airy living room, bedroom and full kitchen with full bath. The covered lanai features a dining table, lounge chairs and private hot tub. Our convenient location takes you to the best litte Kauai town of Kilauea with Bakery, Healty Hut, Lighthouse, soon to come shopping center. The town offers a number of events including an evening walk with vendors and music, farmers' markets and shops.There are three beaches within a mile of the cottage. The Mini golf is not the typical one, it is built around Hawaiian Structures and native plants. Walk to the back and find the trailhead for a hike. There is so much to see on Kauai. We are happy to help you find adventures.

Plan day trips or short drives, pack the beach chairs, towels and cooler bag. Be sure to include the snorkel equipment that we provide. Drive about half a mile to reach the main road and you are on your way!

When it is time to return "home", come through the entrance, up the drive and to your Kauai cottage with full view of the gardens, a private hot tub, a gas grill for preparing a meal. Check the night stars or walk to the end of the property to view a sunset with colors reflecting on the mountains,. The only house rules are: park by the cottage, be respectful of neighbors, and be kind to the environment. You will find what you need for relaxing, cooking and even a smart TV if you like.

Aloha and Mahalo,

Eleanor, Rob and Lisa

About Eleanor (NY) Rob (Kauai)

Our 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 call Kauai home, others of us visit as often as we can. 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

Why Eleanor (NY) Rob (Kauai) chose Kauai

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Hale Kokio is private, comfortable and welcoming. We handle all aspects of your stay, adding a personal touch. We know the island well, have family in Kauai and are happy to share what we know about the island.

Our covered lanai with private hot tub is a much appreciated feature. Views of the sunset from the grounds are an extra special experience. The night sky is amazing

What a wonderful, enchanting home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were friendly and welcoming.

We found Kaua'i a beautiful, interesting island, but each day it was so relaxing to return to Hale Kokio. It is just enough off Highway 56 that the traffic is out of earshot, replaced by beautiful bird song. We even came to be able to sleep despite the ubiquitous roosters. If you enjoy birds, bring your binoculars.

The guest house is ample for two. It comes with a well-equipped kitchen stocked with some basic condiments etc. The lanai has lots of room, and we ate all our meals there. We are recommending Hale Kokio to our friends.

Regarding issues raised in past reviews:

-my wife thought the bed very comfortable while I found it too soft. Can't please everybody!

-If it were my home, I'd put new rollers on the patio screen door. It gets a lot of use and needs attention.

-After turning on the hot water faucet it takes a long time for the on-demand propane heater to deliver, which is not a big problem if that were as far as it went. It seems, though, to stop heating when the volume from the faucet is low, leading to another long wait, not pleasant when in the shower. I soon learned to leave the faucet on full blast until I was finished in the shower. This kind of defeats the energy conservation purpose of the demand heater.

-The hot tub worked just fine, as did everything else, with the above-noted exceptions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate all comments. Regarding the water, we have left a guideline for use of on demand water. We have been checking the system and with guests and have not had any complaints. We do know that turning the water on and off can result in some delay. As always, it is best to let us know if there is a problem so we can address it. Yes, the sliding door frame needs to be replaced. We have made repairs but these can fail after a short period of time. This replacement is in process just as all repairs are done when necessary. We know all guests have many choices for a place to stay and appreciate that you were clear that overall you recommend a stay at Hale Kokio. Thanks for your comments

Beautiful and Calm

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our seven night stay. The grounds are impeccable and the trees were in full bloom; we had constant access to freshly picked tangerines! The cottage is cozy, comfortable and has everything you might need to stay comfortably. All you need is to pick up some food and you are set. The outside Jacuzzi is heavenly. After a long day of hiking it was a welcome reward to soak in the tub. The location is awesome and it is so peaceful and tranquil (except for chickens but you can't get away from those anywhere!) We would totally book here again.

Comfortable stay on beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 7-night stay. Upon our arrival we discovered a gift of fresh fruit and tropical flowers. The house is very clean and had everything we needed. The deck is lovely and comfortable, with a great view of the garden. Our host, Rob, gave me a tour of the grounds and showed me all of his tropical fruit trees. I have a background in floristry and plant science and enjoyed the beautiful gardens very much. There are many beautiful birds in the yard as well. The only improvement would be a more comfortable bed, or at least a memory foam topper. I woke up very achy every day due to the uncomfortable mattress. I know that the host, Rob, is very interested in making the house comfortable and in making improvements. A new hot tub was delivered while we were there. I would love to stay here again sometime.

Owner's Response: We greatly appreciate your review. Thank you for your generous review of Hale Kokio and your remarks about the gardens. Great to know that with your trained eye that you enjoyed our efforts. We focus on organic gardens and sustaninable practices. We listen to suggestions for improvement and address those as soon as is practical. This means we will address the comfort of the bed. By the way, the new hot tub is up and running. We will be watching the new border of hibiscus also - as you are likely aware they will grow quickly in this island paradise. We look forward to yur return to Hale Kokio in the near future. Mahalo
