About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 2)--close to the beach!

And not only secluded, but only a four and a half minute walk to a gorgeous and private beach! Gilligan's Beach Cottage is not like one of the houses packed into town--it is about 15 minutes east of Princeville in rural Kauai in an unspoiled, natural valley called Moloa'a. If you check it out on a map, you will find Moloa'a Bay in the upper right hand corner. Since there is very limited public parking near the beach, this beach is relatively undiscovered by tourists. Hollywood, however, did discover this idylic location in the 1960's and filmed the entire pilot episode of 'Gilligan's Island' here--thus, the name we chose.

Gilligan's Cottage is situated on a large rural lot which is filled with fruit and palm trees, to the delight of our guests. This valley is sparsely populated, and privacy and tranquility is what you will find here. Gilligan's has one bedroom, one full bath with a private outdoor Hawaiian Shower (which is very popular with our guests!). The cottage is fully modern in every way, yet still retains the charm of Old Hawaii in its plantation setting.

Moloa'a Beach--oh, the beach! Just a four and a half minute walk down a lovely paved country road. Very beautiful, very clean and very LONELY! Many times, you will be the ONLY one to be walking this beach watching turtles, picking up shells, and observing an occasional Monk seal. This is the type of setting in which you totally forget that there is a civilization!

But the nicest part--civilization is just a few minutes drive away from Gilligan's! You will notice that Moloa'a is centrally-located on Kauai, and after a day at restaurants, shopping, hiking, and touring paradise, you still have Gilligan's to come home to--only a dream away...

An amazing property with an amazing location. A beautiful blessing.

  • 5 of 5

The property was gorgeous. The cottage was an amazing retreat. Very cozy and extremely well stocked. The instructions given to us prior to our arrival were very helpful and clear. There was not one issue. The pictures are amazing but still do not fully depict the beauty.

Exceeded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Gilligan's Cottage exceeded our expectations! Great location away from the traffic & crowds of the Kapa'a area and a easy walk to the beach. We spent every day at the beach and then returned to the cottage for cocktails on the lanai. Host Tony has done a wonderful job with so many nice touches. The outdoor shower is a great way to rinse off and cool down after a day at the beach. The kitchen set up was right for us as we prefer to prepare our own meals and the outdoor gas grill worked perfect. The avocado tree adjacent to the lanai was flush with ripe fruit which was so delicious. We enjoyed all the fruit that was in season including tangerines, grapefruit & limes. Another nice touch from Tony is a closet full of beach essentials; chairs, coolers, umbrellas, beach mats & snorkel gear. The cottage has a remote feel to it because of the lush vegetation surrounding it. There are so many windows which allowed for great views of the property and cool evening air flow. This place is a real gem for couples who want to get away from it all and still have easy access to the east shore & north shore. Can't wait to go back! Jim & Jolene - Littleton, Colorado

Peaceful, clean, friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a peaceful area surrounded by vegetation and a very short walk to moloa bay- which has awesome snorkeling! Retrospectively, we wouldn't have stayed anywhere else. The house was well kept, very clean. You could tell the house keeper scrubbed everything head to toe between renters. The house was well set up with everything we needed too, like toilet paper, sheets, towels, laundry detergent etc. Tony was quick to respond to our questions, and was very helpful helping us find anything we needed. We hope to rent again in the future when we come back to visit the island!

Charming home away from home on beautiful Kauai!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in a condo at Kapa'a prior to arriving at Gilligan’s Beach Cottage. I was hopeful Gilligan’s would provide a bit off-the-beaten-path and peaceful end to our two week stay on Kauai – and it did. Gilligan’s is charming, clean and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.

The cottage has a large, well-maintained yard complete with numerous fruit trees. The lush landscaping on the property provides for a private and relaxed setting. Noises from neighboring homes and properties can be heard from within the cottage – but so too can the crashing waves and array of pleasant tropical sounds.

The cottage itself was comfortable for the two of us. The kitchen is well-stocked and we were easily able to prepare our own meals. Having a washer and dryer was convenient, as was access to a grill on the large back porch. There is a great selection of local books, music as well as many movies.

We found the location near Moloa'a Bay ideal for exploring north, all the way to Ke'e Beach, and south, as far as we could go in Waimea Canyon. Moloa'a Bay, although possibly less popular than other beaches, has limited parking – so being able to walk to the beach was a plus.

Tony was a pleasure to work with and provided clear and prompt communication. I would not hesitate to recommend Gilligan’s Beach Cottage to friends and family, and hope – one day – we are lucky enough to return for another visit.

What a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Gilligan's to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary, and we could not have picked a better place! The entire staff was helpful and friendly, and we enjoyed our stay so much, we were sad to leave. We were looking for privacy and seclusion & found the cottage to be the perfect tranquil getaway. The new granite countertops in the kitchen looked great, and added a touch of modern flair. Everything was clean & very well maintained, and we appreciated the motion light by the front door, to help guide us back in at night. The valley gets pretty dark at night, which I quite like. Living in a metropolis area, it was a welcome thing, and contributed to the peace and country feel.

Each day as we headed out, we would close the house up , & were very happy at how quickly it cooled down when we returned, & opened everything back up again. The geckos were my favorite, and other than the crowing, we got a kick out of the roosters and chickens hanging out in the yard.

Tony was a breeze to work with, very accommodating, and answered all of our questions. This was our first trip to Hawaii, and the cottage was the best initiation we could have hoped for. We hope to make it back someday, as it was an unforgettable experience!

Everything you want. And more!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owner Tony, is probably one of the nicest people you'll ever talk to. From the first confirmation email to last thank you text he is an excellent host away from home and will surely do anything he can to help. The house keepers do an excellent job at making this rental look fresh and new with the calendar so tightly booked. My wife and could go on.

The rental itself was exactly what my wife and I were looking for having stayed in Koloa'a Valley before. Just like most of the reviews say, you can hear the waves, cook every meal at home, walk to the best beach and rinse off in the outdoor shower. It really is a slice of paradise. Being three plus months pregnant my wife had an easy time dealing with the weather inside and out. The home opens up so much that it will quickly cool down and keep out most pests. The ceiling and floor fans do a great job also. I hear that theres granite counter tops now which just shows how much Tony cares for his home. The list goes on for how great the place is for a small family or anyone just wanting a private escape.
