When you arrive, we will provide you with tropical flowers, and a welcome basket of fresh fruit from our organic gardens, and Hawaiian goodies!
We are in an agriculture area, so you can count on peaceful and quiet relaxation. We are centrally located on Kauai, so you will minimize travel time on your day trips across the island. Also, we are conveniently located behind the Kapaa by-pass, so you avoid the late-afternoon traffic. We are minutes from all the beaches along Kapaa, as well as great restaurants, shopping, luaus, and many great spots.
We offer our guests a tour of our permaculture estate - showing them all the interesting fruit trees and vegetation we grow, and how we go about growing a lot of our own food year round.
We supply our guests with an in-house guidance map and booklet to all the very best places to visit, things to do, and restaurants on Kauai. And we usually sit down with our guests for personal guidance and tips. The unit is also stocked with reading materials on Kauai, including hikes around the island.
Often our guests take a sauna and get a fabulous Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage from Jai! For anyone interested, one of our neighbors offers yoga classes three times a week.
We provide all kinds of beach gear like snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, etc. If you want to swim with turtles, we will direct you to the best spots!
Our guests always rave about their stay, and thank us endlessly for helping them make their vacation so wonderful and perfect. We hope to have the opportunity to help you on your ideal vacation, as well!

Jai Roberts, Honua Lani Hostess
I have lived and sustainably gardened this property for 30 years. It is a beautiful private garden estate. Our Guests enjoy Lomi Lomi massage in the newly built Massage Hale in the middle of the gardens and love the photo ops among the flowers, vegetable gardens, nature trails, and coconut lined ponds.
I love to see how rested and content our guests look after a few days in our quiet natural pristine setting.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 1982
I love the east side of Kauai. It is equal distant from either end of the road and therefore my Guests spend less time in the car and more time enjoying the places and events they are going too. Also my Cottage and Gardens have the best weather on the Island. We enjoy night rains not day rains like storybook Camalot. In the winter we remain cool and dry and in the summer we sit in the trades and enjoy the breeze.
The Ocean and its mile long beach Kealia is just down the hill and in town 5 minutes from the house are shops and great dining with lots of weekend festivals and markets.
Daily fresh greens and hawaiian fruits from our beautiful gardens, bike rentals, island orientation with guide book, private yoga classes,
on-site spa treatments, including: Swedish massage and lomi lomi massage (Hawaiian style) by Jai, our resident LMT. We offer couples massage as well in our beautiful Massage Hale in the center of the gardens.Free beach gear (boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach mats, towels, cooler, chairs and umbrella) for your daily use.
We enjoyed our stay here. A perfect size for four (or more) and Jai had everything we needed to make our stay fun (beach towels, beach chairs, snorkelling equipment and boogie boards). Any issues we had were dealt with quickly. We would recommend this place to families or two couples. A great location on Kauai halfway to wherever you want to be. Thanks Jai!
We enjoyed our stay overall. The home was clean, there were plenty of bathroom towels and kitchen supplies, and fresh fruit was left for us as well. The bed was very comfortable and the view from the lanai was amazing. The home is conveniently located and we didn't have any problems navigating to and from or across the island. The couch/futon isn't very comfortable so we didn't spend much time on it. I was pretty sure I'd read that beach supplies were available although perhaps I'm remembering wrong. Nevertheless, I could not find any and it turned out okay because we didn't have time for that anyhow. It is indicated within the description that there is no a/c and we figured that with the rain and all the doors and windows open there'd be enough of a draft to cool it down. It still stayed pretty warm in the home, so if you're at all sensitive to the heat, this is not the property for you. We would've been uncomfortable had we stayed any longer (we only stayed 4 nights).
I was disappointed in the lack of communication and being unable to tour the garden. There was a notebook laid out for us with rules of the home and suggestions for places to eat and all that. Among them were instructions to call her so we can meet and review everything. It was also stated in the property description and in the notebook that we could also request a tour of the plantation gardens. This is one of the reasons we chose this home. I called the provided number several times and it either rang and rang or I received a busy signal. I finally got through and left a voicemail and it was never returned. After leaving, we received a message via VRBO that they went to some event for their grandchildren. Not a huge deal, but it would've been nice to know or to have received some sort of reply.
It was nice for the one-time stay, but I don't think we'll stay there again in the future.
My wife and I spent 11 lovely days at Jai's cottage. It couldn't have been more serene and relaxing. Everything you could need for accommodation and set in a spectacularly lush, tropical garden. Only ten minutes from town and the ocean, but feels like so far away. Jai is a thoughtful, gracious and most creative host who is always available when needed.
It was truly hard to pull ourselves away, and we intend to return soon. Thank you, Jai!
So much better than staying at a resort! This property was overwhelmingly beautiful. I didn't want to leave. The pictures don't do it justice.
This was our first time not staying on the beach in Kapaa, and being able to use the Kapaa bypass to avoid the heavy traffic in town, whether we were driving north or south, was a relief. This is also the first time my husband and I have stayed somewhere where we didn't need to use the curtains because it was so private, being surrounded by treetops. (but still sunny on the deck). We loved the sweet call of the shama thrush, and walking down to the gardens and ponds (mosquito repellent strongly advised!) At first the separate cottage was not available for the whole 9 nights, so we had booked the condo downstairs in the main house for the last half of our trip. When the cottage then opened up shortly before our trip, Jai was very available and persistent in dealing with vrbo to quickly make the changes in our booking arrangements and fees. She was also available for questions during our stay but let us enjoy our busy days without interfering, just checking in after our arrival and before our departure. The cottage was as described and was quaint but clean and nicely decorated, with well-equipped kitchen, and we really enjoyed the many louvered windows plus doorwall, which allowed for very good airflow. There was a portable air conditioner stored in the closet, but we didn't need it at all. There was a convention of roosters somewhere nearby around 5 am, so I did use earplugs, though my husband didn't find them necessary. My husband did find backing out of the driveway on a slope a bit of a challenge until he got the hang of it. If you can't handle the presence of tiny ghost ants you should stay in a resort where they spray insecticides all over everything so that you never see a bug inside or out. But that's not Hawaii! All in all, a very pleasant, relaxing stay. Many thanks to Jai for providing this lovely retreat for visitors.
Loved staying in the cottage this week! Only regret was not staying longer and getting a lomi lomi massage. The cottage is very cute with a beautiful view of Jai's gardens and the ocean out in the distance. Very clean and well-appointed and with a comfortable King sized bed which we enjoyed. Kapa'a town is only a ten minute drive - full of good eats and whatever else you might need. Jai recommended Tiki Tacos one night and we are still talking bout those delicious tacos.
This would be a very comfortable place to spend a week. Much more personal than a hotel and tucked away in the treetops. Four people could easily stay but two would need to bunk up in the loft and climb a little ladder to do so- which might be a challenge for some. We enjoyed sharing our place with those lil geckos instead.
We are located within minutes of several four star hikes. We have Massage and couples massage on site.
We have a garden cart for fresh fruit veggies and organic free-range eggs. we are located five minutes from our backyard surf spot and five minutes from great shopping, beaches, beach walking trails,dinning and nightlife.
