About the property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Moloaa Bay is a small, secluded community on the northeast shore of Kauai. The beautiful crescent shaped bay is a peaceful hide-away, relatively undeveloped and unknown to most visitors. Close to everything but far removed from the hustle and bustle of tourist areas, it is 15 minutes south to Kapaa and 15 minutes north to Princeville and Hanalei.

Private and uniquely situated on one acre, with ocean, garden and mountain views, you will sleep to the sound of the waves in this guest house. Separate from the main house with its own private entry, your house sits behind two multi-million dollar oceanfront homes that are rarely occupied. It is just a few steps to swimming and snorkeling and reef walking at the uncrowded beach.

Private stairs lead up to your beach house, which is 13 ft. in the air and has a large lanai with milky way night time views. Inside, it has high open beam natural wood ceilings, with ceiling fans and lots of windows. This house is very comfortable, light-filled and spacious with a California king-size bed, partial kitchen, all tile floors, and large bathroom with granite counter top vanity and full glass two person shower. The beach house has a low allergen environment.

The decor transports one to another time, another place in paradise. It is Ideal for couples who like nature, privacy and the sea.

About Juliette

Kauai is my favorite place on the earth but I love to travel everywhere. In fact I love to travel so much that I may not be home when you visit. When I am here I am in my art studio and I love to meet my renters and afford them info on the island if they desire. Otherwise they are left in exquisite privacy.

Juliette purchased this house in 1996

Why Juliette chose Kauai

I chose this spot because it was the most beautiful place I had ever seen. It is equidistant between the two ends of the one road that goes 3/4 of the way around the island of Kauai. It is also between the dry side and the wet side so it has advantages of both. We like to keep it a secret.

What makes this house unique

Our property simply is Perfect - a few steps from the beach but one lot back so there is privacy. One can hear the sound of the sea. Even though it is isolated, it is near everything one needs or wants and it is away from the hustle and bustle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Since the moment I got here this place has taken my breath away, stolen my

heart and left me speachless.... as you have done to me twice by sharing your

hale with us. This hale was uplifting for the spirit and the soul. It is so much

more than we ever expected. Between the sound of the ocean, the bird sounds

in the morning and the millions of stars at night we had a wonderful experience

and will be taking back many wonderful memories and a bit of sand. We greatly

appreciate your generosity and for making us feel like "Ohana."

Moloa'a Bay Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our flight was very late at night, but we were still greeted by Jules and shown everything we needed to know about our rental. The minute you arrive you hear the surf crashing. So relaxing and private.

The rental is roomy, comfortable and has wonderful books with ideas about hikes, beaches, places to eat and visit. The large shower was great with two shower heads, great water pressure and temperature.

Great location for the north and east side of the island without being in the middle of more touristy area. Located between both ends of the island; it was half and hour north to Hanalei or half and hour south to Kapaa. Even trips to the south end were a reasonable distance.

It's a short walk to a low-key, beautiful beach. Because it's tucked into a neighborhood it had very few people. We enjoyed walking down to the beach at night with a glass of wine and a flashlight!

We had a great stay in this lovely place, perfect for two and soooo private. Thanks Jules!

moloa'a Bay Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful, very private stay. The accommodations were clean and tastefully decorated. Juliette provided a cooler, beach towels, a portable table to take to the beach, beach mats and small boogie boards to use while swimming. We wished we had more of a kitchen. The "modest" kitchen included a small fridge (no freezer), a toaster oven and a hotplate. We managed with take-out. The beach is quite private and safe when the storms are not surging. A beautiful hideaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you! Again I will state that this house is for guests who do not want to cook on vacation. However one is able to cook just about anything if one has an imagination. My kitchenette is described in detail on my vrbo site: countertop oven/toaster, small fridge, medium size induction plate, electric rice cooker and veggie steamer, blender, electric tea kettle and a coffee maker. If you need a big kitchen there are lots of rentals in Moloaa Bay with gourmet kitchens.

Loved the property

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay in Kauai and my wife and I both loved staying down by the ocean.

It was very private and going to sleep to the sound of ocean waves every night made for a very tranquil experience.

We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect restful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed ten lovely days at Moloa'a Bay. Juliette welcomed us and made us feel right at home. She was kind enough to allow early check in and late check out to accommodate our flight schedule. The apartment was clean, the bed super comfy and there is lots of privacy. The kitchenette is small, but functional and just as described. We ate in and made most of our meals. We enjoyed the lanai and the easy stroll to the beach. We look forward to returning as soon as we can!
