About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms -2 queens and 3rd has 2 twins, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come to the most beautiful beachfront vacation villa in Hawaii! Secret Cove Villa is located in an exclusive area of large estates owned by billionaires. It is a very private 3 BR, 3 BA estate located on a blissful, blue lagoon in the most romantic of settings. This three-quarter acre estate has over 60 coconut trees on it with beautiful landscaping to enhance your privacy. It is less than 50 feet to the spectacular, seldom used, secluded, crescent sand beach of Aliomanu Bay. Aliomanu Beach is known as 'the gateway' to the North Shore. The beachfront lagoon is protected by surrounding reef, making it ideal for water sports (snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, etc.). These waters are safe for youngsters as they have keiki tide pools near shore.

For family reunions and small weddings Secret Cove Villa can also be linked with the enchanting Secret Cove Cottage, which is on the right side of the estate. In this way you can be near your guests, but have comforting privacy on those special occasions.

From the bedrooms, living room and kitchen you have stunning views of the beach and ocean. The front lanai runs the length of the home so you have sweeping wide ocean views in both directions. Be sure to enjoy the comfortable deck lounge chairs and dining table set.

The incredible sunrises, sunsets and moonrises that you can see from the home are mesmerizing. Just imagine yourself sitting on the lanai with a morning cup of coffee or an evening drink listening to the ocean sounds and the splash of colors in the skies.

Inside the villa there are high-end upgrades throughout. The home is tastefully furnished for your every comfort and is decorated with Asian accents. Granite counter tops are used throughout the kitchen and bathrooms. The gourmet kitchen has upgraded appliances and is easy to cook in with all the essential amenities. If you prefer to grill, there is a very nice barbecue to grill at.

Two of the bedrooms are master suites located at each end of the house. The third bedroom has two new twin beds with pillow tops on them. Each bedroom has its own luxurious bathroom. In the living room there is a large-screen television, DVD player, as well as WI-FI for your enjoyment. From each room you can see the ocean and from each bedroom you can walk out onto the lanai. The vaulted ceilings and lighting system afford a spacious and welcoming atmosphere that envelops you as you step into this inviting home.

Secret Cove Villa also provides 2 kayaks for guest use, 2 boogie boards, beach mats, beach towels and a cooler for your excursions. You will be welcomed by a special greeting basket of fruit and chocolates to let you know just how special this vacation will be for you. If you are looking for a premium ocean location, there simply is no more spectacular setting for your perfect romantic vacation in all of Kauai than Secret Cove Villa. Period!

Best vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

This house is spectacular! The house is spacious, secluded and peaceful. Perfect location, every morning we woke up to the sunrise, didn't even need to get out of bed since every room has a perfect view. The view is breathtaking, the full-length windows are perfect. You definitely need a car comma but the house is at the perfect location for stores or going out for a bite to eat. The owner and caretaker are very attentive. Would definitely return.

Best Week of our Lives!

  • 5 of 5

We booked both this main house and the cottage and held our wedding here in April. It was a perfect week in the most perfect location. :)

Having only been able to research our wedding "venue" online, I literally jumped for joy upon arriving at the house and stepping into the yard - it was beyond my expectations! The scenery is breathtaking, the photos don't do justice to the grounds of this property. The beach is cute and narrow with plenty of shady, quiet hammock spots. If you're laid back people looking for a small wedding location, or just a place to spend quality time with a group of loved ones, this is the house you want. It is in a true local area that will give you authentic hawaiian lifestyle experience. We were lucky enough to meet the resident monk seal and got a visit from Manu, the neighborhood dog. The house definitely has some weathering and the decor may not be to everyone's liking, but overall our crew of architects thoroughly enjoyed the design of this house The kitchen was adequately stocked and has high end appliances, though the fridge did sound to be about at the end of it's life. Bedrooms were nicely sized and situated, very comfy/soft mattresses - the master was amazing and made for a great bridal prep area. Two things to note: The 3rd bathroom does not have a showerhead, it is tub only. Second, the loft in the cottage is accessible only through the bedroom, so if you need 2 couples to stay there, they should be comfortable enough with each other to share the same space. There is a gravel area underneath the main house (where kayaks are stored) that extends out into a tree covered area that is just perfect for setting up a romantic dinner table. The grassy yard between the house and cottage is so soft and well maintained that we were able to go barefoot for our ceremony! And if you need anything, Eunice, the house keeper and Jonathan, the manager, are so accommodating and just a joy to talk with.

You really could stay in this house for a whole week and never need to leave the immediate area. There is an awesome general store with poke and a burger place on the main highway just before turning on Aliomanu road, and just after is a farmer's market open on the weekend. As far as weather, it seemed to have the best of both worlds, getting the cooler air and rolling cloud cover of the north, but less rainfall like the south side.

I could go on for days about this place, but in short, it's magical!

Your Own Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at Secret Cove Villa and had an absolutely wonderful time. It was our second visit to Kauai and we thoroughly enjoyed the quiet and privacy this home provides. We were four adults, a ten year old and a six year old. And the amazing beach access meant immediate play time upon arrival. We swam every day (took the kayak out one afternoon)and always felt safe. We ventured out one day to Anini Beach for some additional snorkeling and soon discovered that Aliomanu Bay is much better, with a larger variety of fish and certainly more plentiful- at least in early May. And I don't think there could be a more private beach in all of Hawaii. Honestly, it was shocking just how few people we saw. It truly felt like our own little piece of paradise. The houses location is terrific with close access to Kapa'a to the south or Princeville/Hanalei to the north. It's stocked well enough that we had nearly every meal there. I especially loved that each bedroom had it's very own bathroom. The views from every room are indescribable. The photos just do not do it enough justice. I highly recommend visiting Kalalea Juice Hale, which is right by the house. We enjoyed their shave ice and smoothies (and their views) on more than one occasion. On a side note, we had a chicken crash in to one of the windows (I was relieved that no glass got broken, that would have been hard to explain). And it took a while, but the poor girl seemed to recover. She fell off the deck and we soon lost sight of her, we can only assume she was okay. The entire week was simply blissful for us, not so much for that chicken.

Absolutely amazing - Spectacular Location and Views at a very reasonable price !

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as we expected from what is listed on the website. This was by far the best vacation I have ever experienced - the location and views were everything I had ever imagined for a trip to such a beautiful island. This was my wife's and my second trip to Kauai, and the island was just as spectacular as we remembered, but this property was the highlight of our stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone that is considering a stay here. We did have a couple of issues during our stay, but we contacted Eunice and she took care of both our issues while we were away, prior to us returning. My son, his friend and I did a little exploring on the beach just to the north of the rental and we did come across the monk seal. Overall everyone had a great time and we would certainly enjoy the opportunity to be able to return here sometime in the future.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house in dark the but were still able to find it. Thankfully flood lights turn on automatically when you walk towards the front door making it easier to see/open the key box. We could hear the ocean but could not see the glorious view until the next morning. Every room in the house has this glorious view. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed to cook. We saw maybe 5 people all day long on the beach. There seemed to be plenty of beach stuff but can't attest to its condition because we just used the umbrella. It was great. Enough beach towels for our family of 4 and more than enough room. My husband found the master bedroom bed (the one by itself) too soft for his liking to sleep on so he slept on one of the twin beds but I had no problems with it. Just personal preference. This house is very ornately decorated, lots of breakable stuff. With a 3 yr old this was a little nerve-wracking, though we made it through the week without anything getting broke. There is a giant life size vase right by the door, if you have small kids I would recommend asking if this could be moved to a less traveled area. The biggest problem we had was when setting the alarm, it would state that the sliding glass door was open, when it was not. Just a little fiddling with it made it clear, so basically we had no real problems.

Would recommend this place in a heartbeat!

The location of this home is fantastic but needs work!

  • 4 of 5

We could not have been happier with the central location of this home to access the island sites. Even better, it is in an area where many locals live and did I mention right on a small cove with a nice sandy beach. Pictures of this were accurate and we encountered no more than 10 people a day sharing our beach. As mentioned in previous posts very good snorkeling is right off your beach. Do not waste your time hauling gear to other sites in winter. If you want clearer water or a healthier reef take a boat offshore. As for the house, the layout was perfect for us parents and our two adult children and spouses. No grandkids yet for us but there were ample supplies for children. We spent every morning and many evenings on the deck running the full length of the house marveling at the amazing view-we never got tired of it! The only reason that I am giving this house 4 stars is that it is beginning to show significant wear. There are areas on the deck flooring that are rotting out and downright dangerous. We were greated on arrival with a note from the housekeeper requesting the handiman come to work on the only main access sliding door the next morning. Having experienced construction we knew this was no small job and declined not wanting to interrupt the vacation we had planned for the last year. Needless to say, we struggled with that door for the entire week but did meet the handiman on our departure so hopefully is now fixed for future renters. The refrigerator needs to be replaced! With a large numbers of groceries in it the temperature was barely able to keep cool. The beautiful wood flooring has areas of water damage and rot. I mention all of this in hopes that the owners will close this property for a short period and invest the money to maintain it for future use. We very much would love to return here if our travels ever take us again to Kauai. This home truly is a gem!

Owner's Response: I was shocked by this reviewer who claimed that "There are areas on the deck flooring that are rotting out and downright dangerous." Therefore, I had our property manager and window cleaner, who frequent the deck on a weekly basis in their maintenance and cleaning of the home, to comment on this renter's statement. They both stated that there are no rotting areas whatsoever and the deck is certainly not dangerous. The deck was replaced not that many years ago with Ipe wood that is so strong and tough carpenters had to use diamond tipped blades to saw the wood! For it to rot this soon is unlikely. The refrigerator is a high end commercial grade refrigerator. There have been no previous complaints about it before her or since her departure. It may be the guest overloaded the refrigerator and the door may unknowingly not have shut tightly. An inspection of the refrigerator by staff revealed it to be in fine working order. Too bad she didn't allow the handyman in when he requested. It didn't really take that long for him to fix since he already had diagnosed the problem and had the parts ready to install. She was wrong about the affected slider being the "only main access door." There are three other sliding access doors to the ocean side deck. The home has a beautiful Eucalytus floor original to the home when it was built. There are a couple of very small areas where there is minor rot but they have been carefully repaired. We are trying to preserve this floor as long as possible because this beautiful rare wood is not available any longer for flooring. We strive diligently in trying to immediately take care of any problems whatsoever that may arise in order to maintain our 5 star ratings.
