About Tiffany Burbidge

I am the daughter of the owner and manage the property. My father built the home and I have been traveling there for 22 years multiple times a year. I love Kauai and Moloaa is a peace of heaven for me. Woodrose Plantation has become a part of my family. I have 5 children and have been married for 26 years. We vacation here every summer for a month or more. This is truly a home away from home.

Tiffany Burbidge purchased this estate in 1995

Why Tiffany Burbidge chose Kauai

The very private location situated on high ground above the flood and tsunami zones yet close to the bay was paramount. Large beautifully landscaped property with many fruit trees for our use combined with rare and beautiful Plantation Architecture and modern amenities yet green and clean is rare. Proximity to beach and ocean yet enough distance to be safe for families with small children is also hard to find. Sufficient distance from noisy pounding surf in winter yet close enough to feel fresh breezes and hear ocean music requires the perfect distance to beach. Privacy of this Beach makes it safer and devoid of crowds with trees for shade when we've had enough sun.

What makes this estate unique

Moloaa is unique in that it is located in a banana belt and when it is raining in Princeville it is often still sunny in our little bay. We are in a semi-private bay and there is not much parking which makes it less crowded. We have many fruits and a great road to run or bike or walk up to the fruit stand. You can pick wild strawberry guava and passion fruit on your way. Moloaa is truly unlike any other place I have been and if you like to be away from the business of life this is a wonderful place to come.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We can't imagine ever staying anywhere else. Your home made our family visit to Kauai one we will all remember forever. It's hard to coordinate schedules to plan a vacation and ours was once in a life time. Thank you for sharing your home with us. It is breathtaking!

We traveled the entire island, and came home to peace and beauty every night. Thanks again!! Hopefully we'll be back next year.

What a pleasure

  • 5 of 5

After reviewing many properties on Kauai that would accommodate our two families we decided on this property. You always wonder if the reality will live up to the descriptions and reviews, and it's my pleasure to say that in this case it surely did.

The house was in good condition, with plenty of rooms (more than enough space) for our group of 7. It was nice that we never felt crowded or right on top of each other. The rooms were nice and there were plenty of ceiling fans to help keep cool. The yard was as described, a regular fruit fest to be sure. That was one of the best oranges I can ever remember having! The avocados were amazing as well. They were huge and in no short supply (to the apparent pleasure of a local cat that I found eating an avocado one day.)

The location is not only nicely located within a nice 5 minute walk to the lovely Moloaa Bay, it's also nicely located on the island. Close to Kilauea, Princeville and Kapaa, and not that far from Hanalei as well. Of course, on Kauai, you're not really that far from anyplace :) The road the house is on connects directly to the beach and gets very little traffic so walking to the beach is not a worry for kids. Also a bonus is the limited parking at the beach as it keeps the amount of people on the beach low.

It's a lovely beach to walk on and there are sections that were quite good for swimming for even younger children. Some areas have rougher surf and more coral/rocks and are not suitable for swimming. We did some snorkeling here as well and saw many lovely fish and even an octopus.

Both families really felt this house made the stay better than it would have been in any hotel or resort. Both my wife and I would have no reservations about staying here again.

Plantation Style living....

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Moloaa Bay for many years now and had one of our best times ever at your home. Plenty of space and all the amenities. Our family is very active from surfing to scuba diving - there was more than enough space to store boards! Big bonus was all the fruit - mangos, limes, bananas --- all right there! We will definitely be returning!

Beautiful plantation home on Moloaa Bay, Kauai, HI

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful and secluded home surrounded by fruit trees and beautiful grounds. We enjoyed 10 days in this beautiful home and wish we could have stayed for much, much longer! Gorgeous Moloaa Bay was a short 3 minute walk away and was the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Kauaii! My kiddos enjoyed the grounds and we all loved picking our fruit from the trees every day. Can not say enough about our experience, the home, and Kauai! We loved every minute and would love to return! Thank you for an amazing vacation!

Owner's Response: It thrills us when others find their experience at Woodrose Plantation like we do. We have never found a place more enchanting than what we find in Moloaa Bay and we love to hear that others feel the same. Woodrose is clearly a Paradise on earth. Especially when the fruit is really on like it is right now.

A perfect, relaxing place to come home to

  • 5 of 5

Your beautiful and comfortable home helped to make our stay in Kauai a vacation that we will never forget. What a beautiful area this was! Very quiet and private (except for the roosters in the morning :)) It was a perfect location, close to a beautiful beach. The calm water at the beach was perfect for the grandkids. The fruit in the yard was fun to eat and pick! We are looking forward to returning. Thank you
