About the property

'Cottage in the Forest'

This beautiful little cottage is tucked into a small forest, with a view of the Hanalei Mountains. Where you will awaken each morning to the symphony of sounds and sights of a peaceful rural mountain setting.

Our three and a half Acre Property is located at the end of a cul-de-sac.

Enjoy the endlessly fascinating interaction and play of the resident birds and animals. Chickens, Ducks, Peacocks, Goats, Dogs, Cats and Horses, all co-exist on our property and provide hours of entertainment.

All this is only a five minute drive to beautiful Kalihiwai Bay, where Kalihiwai River enters the ocean. It is our favorite beach, great for boogie boarding and surfing. Also a five minute drive takes you to Anini Beach, a very long beach with a double reef, where you can spend your days: Wind Surfing, Kayaking, Sailing or just enjoying the Ocean environment. Anini also has a large Beach Park.

You will be only 15 minutes from the world famous Hanalei Bay and the Princeville Resort, where you will find the 27 hole Makai Golf Course, and the Princeville Shopping Center. There are two Horse Riding Stables very near by, and the North Shore boasts many hiking trails.

The accommodations are light, airy and beautifully furnished. The claw foot tub in the bathroom is especially charming and looks out a corner picture window on to a private garden.

We love it here and love sharing the unique charm and quiet country atmosphere. Best of all, we are only minutes from some of the best beaches in the world.

The Cottage in the Forest was the perfect place to wind down and have relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very private. It feels like you are in your own little oasis with a few friends. (Milk, the goat, the 3 peacocks, and the chickens) After our day of playing and touring the island, it was always fun to come home to this beautiful, quiet little cottage.

tranquil home away from home

  • 5 of 5

As a solo traveler, I was interested in security and peace. This place provided that and so much more! Susan and Kim are laid back, sweet ladies who are very caring and so ready to help in any way. Loved all the critters, bird sounds (including roosters!) and seclusion. Every possible amenity was available. I hope to return some day!

Peaceful and pleasant

  • 5 of 5

Susan was so accommodating on those few times we asked her for anything. We wanted a peaceful retreat and we got it. Their Cottage was comfortable and in fact surrounded by the North Coast's lush growth of forest. The animals on their estate, while close were pleasant, beautiful, friendly and entertaining. We achieved our goal of rest and relaxation while there. We would definitely return.
