About the property

Private 1BR 1BA Upscale Home with Romantic Seclusion and Close Ocean Views

Plumeria Moon is a wonderful cottage on a completely private property overlooking the ocean on Kauai's spectacular North Shore. This home is perfect for couples celebrating their honeymoon or anniversary dream of a secluded tropical hideaway in paradise. The cottage is available with Hideaway Bay, a separately private 2 bedroom home that shares the 3 acre secluded property.

Plumeria Moon is very tastefully built with an open Hawaiian style and creative architectural features that take advantage of the amazing ocean view and tropical climate. Recently updated with bamboo hardwood floors, new sofa-sleeper, new paint and ceiling fans, as well as new linens and two flat screen LCD TVs.

There are three angled walls with large windows on the side of the cottage that face the ocean which enhance the ocean view and open up the interior space to the tropical surroundings. A well-vented copula roof design opens up the interior space to more light and takes advantage of the tropical breezes. If it gets too warm there is also a very powerful yet quiet split-unit air-conditioning system.

Property & Amenities: Plumeria Moon guests enjoy their own Hot Tub with ocean view as well as a luxurious outdoor shower with ocean view (yes, there is a full tile & glass indoor shower too!) There is a beautiful tile lanai for watching whales and albatross while dining or relaxing outdoors. There are no other homes or roads within sight or sound of the cottage and the lush landscaping is alive with colorful flowers and tropical birds.

Features: Amenities: Plumeria Moon is loaded with features and amenities...

Hot tub, short walk to white sand beach, private sun deck, covered lanai, outdoor shower, ceiling fans, split-unit air conditioner (quiet), complete kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, extra large toaster oven, rice cooker, etc. Bath towels, extra sheets (quality linens), beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, beach umbrellas, rain umbrellas.

Weber gas barbeque, satellite TV, washer/dryer, Multi-disc CD player, binoculars, Kauai guide, trail, and wildlife books, leisure reading materials (3 shelves of books), etc....

Plumeria Moon can be rented as an addition to Hideaway Bay, making the 3 acre property a romantic getaway for multiple couples.

Hideaway Bay and Plumeria Moon are licensed by the State of Hawaii and the County of Kauai as a legal Transient Vacation Rental property. This means that if you rent these homes (unlike many other rentals out there) you can be sure it will be legal and available when you arrive. TVR # 4284 / SP 2011-15

Keywords: Private, peaceful, tropical home set atop the bluffs of Kilauea Farms on the spectacular North Shore of Kauai.



Aloha and Welcome to PLUMERIA MOON, HIDEAWAY BAY and the Beautiful Garden Island of KAUA'I

1. Please Be Good Neighbors

Keep noise to a minimum, especially before 8:00 am and after 10:00 pm. Your neighbors (distant, in our case) probably have to go to work the next day, so please be considerate. Turn off outdoor lights at night whenever possible. We enjoy our dark nights when the stars are bright and beautiful. Of equal importance, our wildlife can become disoriented at night if lights are too bright. Please be sure you park only on property; we have plenty of space for parking and driving on the lawn is ok. If you have any questions about our neighbors or how to best be considerate of them, please call Thomas at 808-635-6262.

2. Beach Safety

Be mindful of the surf. Our shorelines face thousands of miles of open ocean. Northern winter storms and southern summer storms can bring us extremely dangerous surf conditions. NEVER turn your back on the ocean – summer or winter. Rogue waves can appear even in calm surf conditions. There are lifeguards at Haena Beach Park, Hanalei Pavilion, Lydgate, Poipu Beach Park, Salt Pond and Kekaha. For your family’s safety, we advise that you check with lifeguards before going into the ocean. For non-guarded beaches, you should at least check with local residents who are there regarding unseen currents or other dangers.

3. 911

In case of fire or medical emergency, call 9-1-1. The address and phone number of your accommodation is posted on the inside of both bedroom doors. For non-emergency assistance, please call Police Dispatch at 241-1711. The phone number for Wilcox Hospital in Lihue is 808-245-1100. The closest emergency treatment center is Mahelona Hospital 808-822-4961 up the hill on your right as you enter Kapa’a.

4. Weather

We do experience flash flooding during periods of heavy rain. If you must drive in this kind of weather, drive with extreme caution. Severe weather could result in the temporary closing of the main road out of Hanalei. For the most up to the minute Traffic and Weather information, please call 808-241-1725.

5. Disaster Emergencies

On the first business day of each month at 11:45 am, our Civil Defense sirens are tested. However, if you hear these sirens at any other time, please tune to AM radio station KQNG (“KONG”) at AM 570 for real-time reports and instructions. Also, the front of the Kaua’i phone book has emergency, disaster, evacuation and shelter information. Hurricane emergency supplies have been provided and are located over the bathroom in the back bedroom.

6. Security

Although theft is our neighborhood is uncommon, please be cautious with your personal belongings. It is always best to lock up your valuables. Lock your doors and windows when you leave the property.

7. Island Driving Etiquette

Please honor the posted speed limits. Frequently check your rear view mirror. If more than 4 or 5 cars are stacking up behind you, pull completely off to the side of the road and let them pass. This can also help you when driving at night as our dark roads can be confusing. The cars following you likely know where they are going and can help light the way for you.

If you are lost, remember that this is a small island and you will find your way soon. Keep driving until you find a safe place to pull over and turn around. If you can head downhill, you will get to the ocean within a few miles. Never make a U-turn on the highway.

When navigating the one-lane bridges, cross the bridges caravan style. It is usually appropriate for 5 or 6 cars to cross at a time. A simple rule of thumb: Drain the lane; if you arrive late – wait. When parking at the beaches, park, or sight-seeing locations be sure to park fully off the street, in assigned or clearly marked parking spaces. If you want to stop to enjoy the scenery, please pull completely off to the side of the road.

About Emma Guy

I have managed and operated Kauai Vacation Hideaway since 2000 when I helped the owner and my friend Mike Testa find this spectacular property. I take pride in providing a wonderful and well-kept location for people to enjoy their vacations.

Emma Guy purchased this house in 2000

Why Emma Guy chose Kauai

This is a special area of Kauai. It is on the gorgeous North Shore yet has easy access to the East Shore and the multitude of beaches in the area. This location enjoys a dryer climate than most of the North Shore so often we can brag about sunshine while rejuvenating showers fall on areas closer to the interior mountains.

lovely prIvate and pristine Hawaiian cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The cottage was well appointed with everything we could need including beach towels which was a good thing as we forgot ours! The location is convenient to hanalei and many beaches and other hikes nearby - just what we wanted from our experience in Kauai

Beautiful Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Plumeria Moon was a peaceful and wonderful place to stay. Thomas was easy to communicate with and a responsive host. We didn't see anyone else the days we were there, it was very private. The view of the ocean is stunning and we saw rainbows most days. We sat out on the lovely lanai in the mornings watching the sunrise and drinking coffee. The expanse of windows and layout of the house is lovely and homey. The hot tub was wonderful after a long day hiking or swimming. The bed was incredibly comfortable. It had the perfect amount of firmness, and softness -so much so I ended up asking him about it as we are looking for a new mattress ourselves. the fresh ocean air coming in when we opened the vents was dreamy. It was great to have access to laundry facilities in the cottage and also extra beach supplies. The place is quiet and private, and beautiful.

Private paradise with secluded beaches!

  • 4 of 5

I planned a trip to this lodging on the North shore of Kauai in hopes of seeing nesting albatross and migrating humpback whales. I found a rustic paradise that was right above a nesting site at na aina kai botanical gardens (requires reservations for close up viewing) with sea views where I could watch the whales go by. The secluded cottage is just a walk down to two separate beaches, with one having spectacular snorkeling even on somewhat rough marine weather, I saw so many fish and purple coral over the week! All of the appliances worked well, if a bit older. We grilled out most nights and enjoyed an evening hot tub with that great ocean view. Kauai has a lot of wild chickens, and this made the first night a little rough. We figured out that, beyond ear plugs, if we closed up the cottage and put the fan on it dampened the roosters enough for a natural wake up with them once the sun came up. Most residents don't even notice them, and I didn't notice them or the geckos too much after a few days. The lush surroundings and landscaping was beautiful. I hope to come back again soon!

Gorgeous Serenity

  • 5 of 5

Plumeria Moon was THE BEST. We absolutely loved the view, the secluded feel, and the lushness of the land. But the best part was definitely the beach, which is located a short hike down the cliff. Truly gorgeous. I never wanted to leave.

The location on the island is great - a short drive to Kilauea, Kapaa, Princeville, or Hanalei.

Mike was so great getting us set up and Thomas was wonderful while we were there. Very attentive and extremely helpful - all while privately letting us enjoy our stay.
