3 ACRES OF SERENITY IN A CUSTOM HOME/ STREAM/ BOTANICAL GARDEN

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday estate in Kalihiwai

Estate, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Kauai Paradise Inn is one of the islands newer private estate vacation rentals with accommodations for up to five or six guests. This new, exquesitely designed, custom built home, perfectly compliments the secluded three-acre botanical garden, organic food garden and year round flowing stream located on Kauai's north shore. In the Kilauea area, Kalihiwai Ridge development is known as the 'Beverly Hills' of Kauai. Everyone of our guest comments on the beautiful drive up to the home.

The breath-taking beauty and sophistication of this residence, coupled with with its impeccable integration with the areas environment and botanical gardens cannnot be exaggerated.

Kauai Paradise Inn offers the ultimate peaceful vacation home with luxury that has taken the hearts of every guest that visits us. We are surrounded by tropical gardens, organic food garden, fruit trees with song birds and a gentle flowing waterfall that can be heard from the house most of the year. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets, moonrises and moonsets abound. Star watching is one of guests favorite activites at night. There are no city lights, which allow you to view the stars like you may have never experienced.

There is a large collection of exotic foliage that includes orchids, tropical fruits, bromiliads and much more! There is a private lake just a 10 minute walk from the house for fishing or just a nature stroll. You may see the Hawaiian Pueo (owl), Nene (Hawaiian Geese) or the endangered Hawaiian wood duck (Koloa) while srolling the estate or the lake. There are resident Night Herons, Hawaiian Moorehens, and the rarely seen (but we see it here!) Greater Necklaced Laughing Thrush.

We now offer an organic garden that is ready for you to harvest, fresh eggs daily form our happy, healthy hens and fruit trees for you to pick what ever you like.

Inside the home, you will find ultra comfortable surroundings that include large soaker tub, large leather couches, windows with beautiful tropical and mountain views, gourmet kitchen and dining area and large patios, large screened room, gas BBQ, nature and sounds of falling water from the stream that invite you outside.

There are two nice, well maintained mountain bikes with helmets available to our guests as well as beach gear such as a cooler, chairs, mats, umbrella, beach shoes, boogie boards and beach towels.

Every guest is greeted with fresh flowers, fruit and a nice bottle of wine.

This house gives you opportunity to experience Kauai in a way that many visitors miss. Live like a local while on Kauai's perfectly beautiful north shore and give yourself the opportunity to truely relax.

We are available on property, a private, discreet 70 feet from the house. We invite you on a nature walk of our private botanical gardens if you choose and assist you in any way you may need while with us.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 out of 5
We just can't say enough about this lovely home that we had the pleasure of experiencing in July of this year. My husband, 3 teenage children and I spent 4 nights in this paradise and wish we could have stayed forever. This was our first trip to Kauai and when we walked into this home, we couldn't believe our eyes. It was a tropical paradise. The home itself was clean and impeccably decorated. It was bright and beautiful. The tropical plants, fruit, flowers and mountain view were amazing. I couldn't stop taking it all in and of course taking pictures. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises and lots and lots of stars. It was quiet and peaceful with the sound of the stream lulling us to sleep. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the bathtub in the master bathroom was perfect at the end of a busy day. Ellen and Jim thought of everything, from the fresh flowers all over the house, to the fresh pineapples, lilikoi, lychee and papaya that we were treated to, to the fresh eggs every morning, to the rich hand soaps and body lotions, to the wonderful bottle of wine and honey that was awaiting us when we arrived. They couldn't have thought of anything more. The kitchen is gorgeous with up to date appliances and the washer and dryer came in very handy. My two favorite areas were the screened in sun room that had an incredible breeze and the back patio with the beautiful mountain view. We couldn't get enough of the views and the sounds of nature. Even my teenage children were impressed. The fans and the screened in windows all over the house brought in the warm breezes and made sleeping very comfortable without the need for air conditioning. The location of the house is perfect. On the north coast of Kauai close to Hanalei town and Bay and the magnificent Napali Coast. Ellen was very helpful and pleasant yet we had complete privacy. She gave us tips on areas to visit that are more secluded and we found her input extremely helpful. Thank you Ellen for making our stay one that we will always remember. We will definitely visit again. We're already missing the feel of paradise that is your home. Aloha.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
We had our first real two week vacation as a family with my son and husband. This place was paradise. It is one of the most beautiful tropical settings I have ever stayed. The owners Jim and Ellen were very helpful and so enjoyable. Our biggest concern was privacy wince they lived on the property. We had complete privacy! Our son loved going on frog hunts and looking at the stars at night. This is one of those places that your jaw just drops when you see the property and home for the first time. Jim and Ellen think of everything you might need and have it for you ready in the house. Great vacation!

Kauai Paradise Inn is truly paradise. My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary surrounded by the sounds of birds, frogs and gorgeous scenery which included a vibrant, colorful botanical-like garden setting, blessed with tropical fruits, an organic garden full of herbs and fresh eggs every morning. A pretty little creek with a pond flows along the property next to the house. Sharp green mountains greeted us most days with intermittent cloud bursts of warm tropical showers keeping the area wonderfully lush. The house was very clean and came beautifully decorated with Ellen's fresh tropical plant decor throughout. Our mouths dropped when we say the gourmet kitchen which set us off to the first farmer's market to try out new, fun recipes. The kitchen has top of the line appliances and gorgeous counter tops of granite or quartz. The gas stove top is a chef's delight and the kitchen comes fully equipped just like home. One of my favorites was the walk-in shower with open-screened windows just above shoulder level with lovely bushes outside to make it feel as though I was taking a shower in the forest. The entire house is well-maintained and the many windows are screened which kept the few critters at bay and allowed the breezes to draft throughout the house. The property is about 3 miles inland off the main road tucked away among other large properties along a well-maintained paved road. Markets and beaches are a short 5 or 10 min. drive from the house. The description of the property on their website and in VRBO is accurate right down to the last word and photo. Without a doubt we would be honored to return to this property and will highly recommend it to family and friends.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed for ten wonderful days. We feared on the wonderful organic garden's offerings, we slept so soundly and enjoyed the beauty of this property. We loved the birds that seemed to sing in response to our bird calls, the wonderful bananas provided by Ellen in the atrium area, the lovely rain soaked walks in the beautiful and hidden neighborhood. Pure relaxation.
The house is huge and lovely,everything was spotless and perfect for our arrival and we have enjoyed the gourmet kitchen where you can cook fresh fish from local markets and organic lettuces and greens from Ellen's garden.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and review. The garden and the the entire property are bursting with goodies this June. June gives us the first pineapples and lilikoi of the season and the lychee are not far behind! Unseasonal June rain has been a surprise and it certainly makes for juicy greens and papaya.
We are so grateful to have happy guests that are inspired by the property.
Mahalo and we look forward to your return to Kaua'i soon!

  • 5 out of 5
First of all Ellen and Jim are such beautiful, well spirited people and they make you feel like family. The house is very large and has everything you could possibly want while staying there. We had our fill of fresh coconuts, grapefruits, strawberry guava, bananas, and all the greens, herbs and vege's from the garden. And of course as many eggs (from healthy natural chickens) as we could use. The place is quiet, and relaxing... birds and bull frogs are the source of most sounds. Easy to get lost here forever...

Private and peaceful vacation retreat

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I spent 2 weeks in this beautiful home. A recent new build, the house is immaculately clean, nicely finished and furnished, and has a gourmet kitchen. We enjoyed the privacy and quiet with the sounds of the creek and birds surrounding the house. We picked fresh organic salad greens every day for dinner and enjoyed the abundance of fresh fruit, yams and eggs from the property. The nearby beaches are among the best anywhere in Hawaii. For golfers, the municipal course is close enough to play, a reasonable rate and one of the few courses anywhere in Hawaii you can enjoy walking rather than riding in a golf cart. We look forward to returning! Thank you Ellen and Jim
