About the property

Large sundeck gazing over magnificent Monkeypod Tree, private yard & boat dock

Peacefulness and Natural Beauty. Enjoy the ambiance of old Hawaii from this quaint rental location. A narrow unpaved winding road leads to Moloaa Mahina Hale which is within a small beach community on Kauai’s Northeastern shore. Watch the Egret Birds return to their nesting grounds at rivers edge. View an abundance of stars from your private deck which is breathtaking on a clear night. Listen as you hear the waves crashing at nearby Moloaa Bay. Only a 5 minute walk or Kayak to experience one of Kauai most beautiful bays offering white sand beaches with shade tree protection, interesting tide pools and good snorkeling . Hike along a gentle pathway high above the oceanside to a bird sanctuary offering incredible views of Moloaa Bay and the coastline. You may see whales or dolphins playing in the bay.

Natural Environment Setting: A creative environment for individuals who seek peace and tranquility in their lifestyle. The setting is all natural with established tropical flora, fruit bearing trees and plantings. This location also has the natural wildlife sounds from the bellowing of the bullfrogs, numerous birds, wild ducks, and of course the famous and colorful chickens that are now sited everywhere on Kauai. Perhaps earplugs would be suggested for those who are light sleepers. Mosquitoes are limited due to the brackish water consisting of both ocean and fresh water.

No Air Conditioning: There is no air conditioning in this unit. We offer ceiling fans, portable fans and the natural trade winds to help keep you cool. The hottest part of the day is between 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm We suggest planning your day outside the unit during this time period to avoid the discomfort for those who can't take the heat or take a swim in Moloaa Bay or kayak down the river to the beautiful Moloaa Bay that will cool you down with ocean breezes and large shade trees along the shoreline. For sun lovers, the deck is an incredible tanning location from early morning until late afternoon.

We offer Wi Fi Internet; Satellite Dish TV with commercial free musical stations. Enjoy TV in bedroom or living room. Enjoy native wild life surrounding this location and birds bouncing about in the enormous monkeypod tree offering shade and beauty to this site. The large deck has a table with four chairs and two lounge. A cold water washing machine is on the deck for added convenience with an outside clothes line for air fresh drying.

There are also lovely and relaxing reading locations on this property. Take your pick.

The spacious bedroom offers a queen size bed with its own TV and ceiling fans and an exit door to the back lanai offering easy access in the night to star gaze just outside your bedroom. The bathroom has a walk in glass shower with good water pressure.. Some prefer the outdoor shower below with hot & cold water.

The living area has it's own TV with a sofa and chair, a small cozy dining table for two and a beautiful state of the art kitchen with dishwasher, under counter refrigerators, gas stove and beautiful quartz buffet counters for casual dining. Like to read? Sit in the reading nook upon a double size day bed to enjoy the morning sun filtering thru the window..

Due to the stairwell access to this home by going up 16 feet high in the air, we feel that it would be too difficult for the elderly to access with ease. Also, due to the height of the cottage and the surrounding waters, we feel children would be at risk

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved every aspect of this house. It's in the perfect location- driving distance to all of the best beaches on the island and walking/kayaking distance to a great beach too! The house is bright and airy and has everything you would need for a fun week in Hawaii.

Repeat guests!

  • 5 of 5

This place is the best!

We have stayed here twice and will be going back. The view and location is fantastic. You will need a truck to find it, the road is not paved.

Just a short walk or boat ride to the ocean. Moloaa Bay is great private beach, everytime we have been there we have only seen a couple other people.

The new owners have spent a lot of time fixing the house up. It is so clean and beautiful. All new kitchen too!

Our son lives on Kauai just down the road in Kapaa so It makes a great location for visiting.

We will definitely be back, hopefully next year.

We loved our anniversary getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My hubby and I loved our time here! The cottage was clean and very comfortable. The property was stunning, and a marvelous cacaphony of of birds, roosters, frogs, and toads was very entertaining. They got started a little early, but all the better to get up and enjoy the beach! The place is definitely off the beaten path, with privacy - perfect for a romantic vacation. You will appreciate a rental car that is a little bigger as the road in can be bumpy. When we're back in Kauai, we would love to stay here again.

Beautiful Summer Hale

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding holiday at this off the beaten path gem. Beautiful and comfortable space amongst the trees. The short paddle to the white sand bay/beach was so lovely. We did a fantastic short hike beyond the bay and saw a monk seal and many albatross. We'd stay here again and do hope to make a return appearance! Thank you!

Wonderful place to stay on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Kauai and thought we wouldn't be able to enjoy a house as much as our first visit, but this was wonderful. The house was clean and comfortable with many place to lounge and enjoy our down town. We loved picking our own oranges, limes, starfruit and avocados and walking around "our" property. We could hear the ocean and enjoy the breezes. The dirt road into the house was a bit more than expected (we live on a gravel road in rural Oregon) but had no real problems. The beach access was only a short walk away along coconut palms and a waterway. A PERFECT getaway!

Perfect, private and restful

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about it and it was just what we were looking for.....something away from the usual touristy spots, yet with everything we required close by. The house had everything we needed, and we cooked most of our meals there, and grilled lots of fresh fish on the BBQ. We enjoyed breakfast on the back lanai, watching the birds come and go through the Monkeypod tree, and we managed to pick lots of fresh limes, and some ripe bananas from the garden.

Moloa'a Bay beach was wonderful, just a 5 minute walk away, and there were dozens of different fish to see while snorkelling, even just a few feet in from the shore. There were very few other people at the beach and it was lovely and secluded.

There were plenty of grocery stores and restaurants within a 15-20 minute drive. We frequently drove down to Kapaa as it was convenient, but it was also easy to go north up to Princeville and Hanalei.

Although we really enjoyed lazing around most days we also had a wonderful time at the annual slack key guitar festival one day, and visiting the Kanuna Dairy goat farm on another excursion.

We hated to leave and are looking forward to returning in the future, hopefully the near future!

Car: necessary

Moloaa Mahina Hale (House of the Lazy Moon) is unique because it is a rare and comfortable retreat for those seeking a private and somewhat secluded location. You can hear and smell the ocean but get only a tiny glimpse from your cottage which is only a stones throw away. Become part of the small community for your stay. You can take a short five minute walk to beautiful Moloaa Bay which is an interesting beach offering surfing, snorkeling, sunbathing and beach combing. Take an easy pathway to the north all along the Bay to where it ends at a fenced Bird Reserve. Due to limited public access and parking, Moloaa Bay is not very well attended making it one of the more private beaches on Kauai. You are 3 miles from the Anahola General Store providing sufficient convenience items. and is located next door to the Anahola Post Office and the Famous Ono Char Burger Stand. Moloaa is located half way between Anahola and Kilauea Town. You are only 10 minutes to the Sugar Mill Town of Kilauea and it's famous Light House recently named after Senator " Daniel Inouye " and Bird Refuse Center and 20 minutes away from Hanalei Town with lots of shops and restaurants and the beautiful Hanalei Bay. Drive out of Moloaa Valley to view other wonders of The Magical Garden Island

Other Activities: Kayaking, Snorkeling, Surfing, Hiking
