HONEYMOON HAVEN, BLUFF COTTAGE-BEACH BELOW-PRIVATE

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Kilauea

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

The cottage is located above Kilauea bay and the Kilauea river valley. It is on a private estate and it is the only unit on the five acres other than the owners home. It is located with a breath taking view of the river and a partial view of the beach.

It is perfect for a honeymoon as the privacy and the details will make for a memorable stay. The beach is a short walk down a private ancient Hawaiian trail. The ocean is perfect for swimming or surfing and there is a secluded beach. Swim a few laps in the salt water pool if you don't want to go to the beach.

Privacy and seclusion are yours without sacrificing restaurants and recreation within 10 minutes. No more than two guests are permitted. For more pictures and a virtual tour go to linked website.

Chris and Ken Carlson have been the stewards of this property for 22 years. Ken makes Kauai flower essences on the property and Chris is a Human Design Analyst. Consultations with both of them are available upon request.

Ken Carlson purchased this cottage in 1988

We bought this land and built the cottage on the bluff looking down at the Kilauea River and Bay to capture the views and tranquility the area offers.

We love to swim laps in the salt water pool after coming up from a dip in the ocean. The views of the ocean to the mountains from sunrise to sunset, the whales, the albatross that nest with us every winter, the perfect surf moments away.

NORTH SHORE GETAWAY

  • 4 out of 5
We arrived late in the day and were immediately greeted by Ken. The facility was clean and comfortable and fresh fruit from their orchard awaited us. The kitchen, while quite small, is adequate for quick meals and breakfast coffee. There is no oven however, but a grill is available.
There really is very little privacy as the main house is in very close proximity and there are no blinds/drapes on the windows in the main room. The pool is not heated and was not cleaned the entire time we were there. It was very cold and we were not able to use it. The beach access is quite a steep distance down and the terrain is not safe for anyone other than the really physically fit/athlete. You can drive a long, steep dirt road to it, but again, walking really isn’t an option. Needless to say, we were very disappointed as these two features were great selling point for us.
The views are spectacular, and the property beautifully maintained. We were disappointed that the owners left the following day for a 2 week vacation leaving their daughter to house sit. Unfortunately, we had no contact information for her and no one to call with questions or concerns. There is no cable/TV, radio, or internet. There is a DVD player; however, the TV would only play in Black/White. That we found strange as it was a newer TV.
The north shore area is quaint and fun. Several good eating places and beach areas that were not too crowded. Chris is wealth of knowledge and her recommendations are spot-on. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing time, this is a very nice and comfortable retreat. Get to know Cameron, the gardener. He is very friendly and quite knowledgeable. Don't forget to try some fruit right off the tree!

Owner's Response: Something is amiss here. There is a stove with four burners and an oven. The TV and DVD work perfectly in color. There are two radios. There are shades on all windows except the round one in the front. There are sliding screens that give 100% privacy in the bedroom. We were on vacation for most of this rental period and would have liked to have clarified these areas in person.

JUST PERFECT

  • 5 out of 5
My boyfriend and I spent a week here and had the best time. The place was perfect for us, good size, comfortable bed, adequate kitchen, and an amazing view! We felt it was very private. It was our first time to Kauai and we were really glad we chose to stay on the north shore, we liked it the best. We also felt the location of the rental made it easy to get to the south shore as well. Highly recommend this place for any couple or single person looking to for a private place to stay in paradise.

GREAT RENTAL

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here in April of 2013 and this was our first trip to Hawaii. We really wanted a place that was private, but with a great view, and that was close to the beach which was provided at this location. We really loved the cottage and it had all of the amenities we needed. It was very cozy and although the kitchen was small, it was perfectly functional. We cooked meals all week. Plus, we really didn't spend a lot of time in doors. The owners were super nice and introduced themselves to us the day after we arrived. Gave us great tips on local places to check out.

We woke up every morning around 5 a.m., to the pleasant sounds of the tropical forest of birds and roosters. I could happily wake up to that every morning. The owners really have a gem of a property and we felt so priviaged that they allowed us to share in this sacred place. The beach is a short, couple minute walk down the lovely path. Keep in mind you are walking up when coming back. My husband really enjoyed fishing on the private beach and I enjoyed photographing the beautiful scenery.

We had such a great time and would really love to come and stay at this place again!

AMAZING HONEYMOON

  • 5 out of 5
The house is at the top of a hill so the view is perfect. The beach below is isolated so it's not crowded, but it's also protected and there is a stream coming down from the mountains which warms the water. The beach is hard to get to on foot. It requires a long walk that young kids and elderly people may not be able to do easily but it's only about a 2 minute drive.

The room only has one queen bed and a couch so it's best for no more than 2 people. One wall is all windows with curtains that only partially cover which enhances the great view but might make some shy people uncomfortable. No one ever passed by the windows and there are no houses in front of them so it was not an issue for us.

The owner was nice and left us alone. He showed us around when we arrived and told us to ask if we had any questions or concerns but then left us to ourselves. We stayed 4 nights and an extra set of towels in the room would have been nice but it wasn't a big deal.

The north side of the island is definitely the best side to stay on. The area is more beautiful, the beaches seemed nicer, and the towns were more laid back. There are activities on the south side but it was just a short drive.

The only major negative (to Kauai) was the roosters. They are everywhere on the island so it's not specific to this property but don't plan on sleeping in.

EXCELLENT PRIVATE SETTING ON NORTH SHORE

  • 4 out of 5
The rental was perfect for our needs, location and price. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars, is the bed was hard and you could feel the springs. The owners of this rental absolutely gracious and were very helpful and friendly without being intruding. The property is gorgeous and in a convenient location for both North and East coast attractions. If we come back to Kauai soon I would stay here again for sure.

Owner's Response: So sorry to hear that the bed was hard. There are no springs, and the mattress is one of the best. We will look in to it.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 out of 5
Background: we were travelling around Hawaii and California for a month and were keen to avoid getting stuck in hotels.
Arrival: easy to find and a wonderful welcome from Ken and Chris. They had great local knowledge and were keen to help us get acquainted with the island. We loved their company.
Accommodation: absolutely stunning, fantastic view, I felt as though I was in a postcard. Wonderfully comfortable bed, plenty of hot water, clean, well equipped and a perfectly adequate kitchen (we self catered every night).
Outside: great running area (for those keen!), loved the pool, short walk to a quiet, local beach. Body boards, surf boards provided.
Area: perfect for getting everywhere on the island.
