Lonely Planet Loves our Private Riverfront Cottage, and You Will Too!
Hidden away on one of Kauai’s most lush and beautiful estates, Coco Cabana offers complete privacy and all the romance of a jungle cottage.
Lonely Planet named Coco Cabana one of the best and most affordable accommodations in Hanalei, and for good reason. The one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom cottage offers all the comfort and serenity you’d expect from an upscale rental home, but at budget-friendly rates.
Before we get into details, read part of the glowing review left by Katherine in May 2012:
“We just booked our third stay at the Coco Cabana. If you like all the comforts of home while experiencing tropical Hawaii, the Coco Cabana is the place to stay. The house is very secluded down a quiet, narrow lane in a verdant jungle clearing right on a river. On my desk at work sits a picture I took while standing on the lanai of the view looking up the river through the jungle with the mountains in the back ground. People can't believe that was the view we enjoyed right from the house!?'
The cottage overlooks banks of the leisurely Wainiha River and is tucked away in five acres of palm trees, bamboo, and vines. The estate was once a taro plantation; today it’s home to dozens of species of native birds. Other than the gurgling river and singing birds, the only thing you’ll hear is the occasional patter of rain against the roof. Coco Cabana is truly the perfect setting for a honeymoon or other romantic getaway.
While you could easily spend your entire vacation enjoying the view from the hammock, Coco Cabana is only minutes from the North Shore’s best beaches, including Hanalei Bay, Lumahai Beach, Shell Beach, Tunnels Beach, Haena Beach, and Ke’e Beach. Adventurous travelers will also enjoy snorkeling, hiking (the Napali Coast is close by), cave exploring, golfing, kayaking, whale watching and more.
Coco Cabana is as lovely inside as it is out. You can hear the river from most of the rooms in the house, and the living room balcony has a full view of the water below. Coco Cabana also boasts a fully equipped kitchen, a wraparound lanai, and a hammock.
This gorgeous property is very popular with travelers. Contact us today before it’s booked! please visit http://v2.reservationkey.com/ferngrottoinn/Cabana to make your reservations.
While Hanalei is a North Shore favorite, the rest of the island is full of charm. Stay at Coco Cabana for a few nights. Then drive less than an hour to Fern Grotto Inn (www.ferngrottoinn.com), a collection of six adorable vacation rental cottages in Kapaa. From there, you can easily explore the Coconut Coast and Kauai’s South Shore. Visit our website at www.ferngrottoinn.com for more information.

Why Paul Juma chose Hanalei
The Coco Cabana property was once a Taro Plantation. I am drawn to old Hawaii and privleged to own a piece of it's history.
What makes this house unique
As the only home on the estate, Coco Cabana is very private and secluded, embraced by a lush tropical jungle, situated along a serene river.
It is close to many spectacular island activities yet isolated enough to relax in peace and quiet. There's a small general store at the end of the old country road.
Guestbook comments from the owner
It's been a week since my wife and I left the Coco Cabana and I waited to be
sure to tell you what a great place it was. I retired from the U.S. Marines
and chose the Cabana as my celebration place. A place to relax and "detox"
from 29 years of Marine life. My wife and I loved the Cabana so much we will
be back. The absolute privacy and comfort was much more then we had
expected. Thank you for a most relaxing and pleasant stay. We'll take
your Cabana over any resort hotel any day.
