Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Experience the incredible beauty of the north shore at the Garden Cottage in Haena, Kauai, located in the heart of the most beautiful 10 miles of the island. We are close to Tunnels Beach, and set between 2 of the top 5 rated beaches on the islands. Kepuhi beach is 50 yards down the driveway; directly behind is lush jungle hillside, the border to 1000's of acres of private nature conservancy land. All tucked into a quiet, secluded, tree lined cul-de-sac.
The private, cozy cottage interior features a high open-beam ceiling, wood floors, and tropical décor, along with cooking facilities. Outside is a private shower with a spectacular view of the jungle, private deck, barbecue, tiki torches to enjoy the evening, and all the style of old Hawaii.
If you are seeking a Honeymoon hideaway or romantic getaway...Relax to the soothing sound of rolling surf, enjoy a bonfire on your private beach, and just minutes away is Hanalei with restaurants, dancing and entertainment. You can walk the beach the entire final 2 miles to Ke’e, where the road ends and the famous Napali coast begins. Or you can walk the beach just 300 yards to the Hanalei Colony Resort, for the only (award winning) restaurant and coffee house on this part of the island. Or just take our beach chairs and walk the few steps to the beach out front!
We are an approved Kauai Vacation Rental TVNC #1052.

Why Katie Howland chose Haena
Doug and Bev were always drawn to the North Shore, when making the decision to put down roots, they couldn’t resist the best part of the island. They fell in love with the unique beauty of their home that balances both accessibility and seclusion.
What makes this Cottage unique
There are many amazing natural wonders right out the front door (see above). This home offers the lush mountainous jungle of Kauai out the back door and the soothing beach and ocean out the front door.

An amazing "Jungle Bungalow"
We loved everything about our stay in the private garden cottage! The location is perfect for exploring the northern part of Kauai. Communication and check-in were smooth and easy and the cottage is just how it's described in the photos. It was a treat waking up to the sounds of nature, having coffee on the back porch and showering outdoors. Our one regret is that we only stayed two nights! After that, we headed to a larger resort in Poipu... while it was fun to see a different part of the island, we missed our private oasis away from other tourists! Mahalo Katie, Beverly and Doug! We hope to return soon!
Close to Tunnels Beach
The Garden Cottage is terrific. It is very close to Tunnels beach which has the best snorkeling on the island. The Cottage is very comfortable and private. The outdoor shower is fun. We would stay there again in the future. Thanks for a great stay.
3rd times' a charm
This is our third time staying at the cottage, each trip gets better and better. As you can tell from all the reviews this is a fabulous little place to rest your soul. Small but efficient, tidy with everything you need to make it home. The owners and their awesome property manager take good care of the place, it is as pictured. It's hard to rent from afar, you never know what you will get when you get there. But rest assured you can trust this property!! Keep in mind the helpful hints about chickens and mosquitoes. Laugh and roll with it. If you are considering a stay on the north shore I would highly recommend this property. Privacy, quiet, so close to the beach, sleep with the sound of the waves. We are already planning our next trip back!
Garden Cottage is a wonderful change from the resort setting. We were in our own, stand alone cottage nestled in the rain forest, just across the street from the ocean. When the ocean was turbulent, we could hear it roar while in our cottage. Nice ambiance. Several beach walks included a chance meeting with a mnk seal. He was tagged so we were able to look up some details on his life--pretty awesome! The cottage was clean and as described. Definately a two person cottage but there are other possibilities on the property for larger groups. We would recommend the Cottage to our friends and will stay there again.
This is such a SUPER CUTE cottage. Love it! Looking to book in August.
Every thing was perfect... Check in procedure, communication and directions. Mahalo to all who make this a special property.
Great cozy cottage
Nice little cottage! Very cute, clean, and cozy. We really loved the outdoor shower. The beach is literally across the street. We didn’t get sunny weather but if we had, this trip would have been perfect. We would definitely stay here again! Host was also kind enough to refund us one night (without even having to ask) because a landslide prevented us from reaching the cottage the first night. Good people!
