'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.

End of the road - a true island experience
This cottage is truly at the end of the road. After battling with the crowds on the roads and touristy places, Cottage in the Forest is a secluded respite. No noise from cars or condo crowds. The noises here are from the Forest birds and ever present chickens. Being from the country ourselves, the symphony of birds sang us to sleep and greeted us in the morning. The cottage is just the right size for two. We grew to love the outside shower. The numerous windows provide an openess and plenty of air movement. The only downside is that you end up driving slot if you explore the south and west sides alot. The North shore was closed past Hanalei during our visit so we ended up driving more than we anticipated. Susan was always helpful and responsive to our needs, which were few. If you really want to get away from the city and crowds, this is the place. Kilauea Bistro is a close by hidden gem.
Clean and beautiful home in the forest.
Loved listening to the birds and enjoyed that it was off the beaten track but easy to get to town.
Susan’s cottage was the perfect little hideaway
We are so grateful that we started our time on Kauai at Susan’s cottage! It was very rainy the first few days of our trip, but falling asleep and waking up to the sound of rain was wonderful. A trip to a grocery store in Princeville had us set for a peaceful day at ‘home’ with everything we needed to make breakfast lunch and dinner. The outdoor shower and bathtub near big windows were dreamy. The horses and Milk the goat were lovely neighbors. I would recommend this place to almost anyone. Thank you Susan!!
We loved having you! : )
Perfect retreat in Kauai
As we began planning our trip to Kauai for a friends wedding, we dreaded the idea of spending any more time in a huge hotel than we absolutely had to. We took one look at the page for cabin of the woods and knew it was perfect! It did not disappoint. The cottage is on a property not too far from the main highway, making you feel like you are deep in the jungle. It has anything you would need, and is plenty of space for 2. We enjoyed most waking up slowly to the sound of trees and animals. (There are roosters, however some ear plugs easily fixed that! ) Even though you feel far from town, it is just a short ride to local grocery store and a few restaurants, as well as our favorite place on the island, Hanalei Bay. Overall, we had a great time and were sad the day came when we needed to check out. Highly recommend!
Exactly what we wanted, away from crowded hotels. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful,
The Cottage in the Forest was the perfect place to wind down and have relaxing vacation.
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.
