About the property

Convenient to all north shore activiites, near three quiet beaches

"A truly delightful experience enjoying the feel of old Hawaii with the peacefulness of natural surroundings. Close enough to major areas yet far enough to keep it quiet and peaceful. It could not have been a more delightful experience." Sept 2017

Welcome to Hale Kokio, a well loved getaway, designed for two. Hale Kokio is perfect for honeymoon couples, the celebration of a special event or a well deserved vacation.

Hale Kokio has all the amentities for a great stay. As soon as you arrive at Hale Kokio you will see that you are in paradise. Palms and Hibiscus lead you to the cottage where a lily garden greets you. Lush gardens punctuate the two acres.

The plantation style cottage with bright living area, pretty bedroom, full kitchen and bath is decorated in the calming colors of Kauai. The cottage opens to a covered lanai. The large lanai is furnished with a hot tub, lounge chairs and dining set creating an outdoor living space.

Our guests rave about the magic of Hale Kokio. You will find chaise lounges in the shade of the monkey pod trees, a hammock tucked by the banana patch and a gas grill at the side of the cottage. Explore the gardens where you will find a wide variety of flowering plants and tropical fruit trees. The gardens are maintained with sustainable gardening practices.

Combine active days exploring the island with quiet times at your island retreat. You can enjoy the comfort of the cozy sofa and smart TV indoors or a restorative soak in the hot tub on the lanai. Enjoy a meal at the kitchen bar or set a festive table for a meal on the lanai. Be sure to turn on the fairy lights for a touch of magic.

Hale Kokio is located in Kilauea Farms on a quiet country road. The charming town of Kilauea is a five minute drive. This is where you can grab a quick breakfast at the Kilauea Bakery and courtyard, purchase groceries or take out at the Healthy Hut or FishMarket, buy gas for the car, or purchase a gift. Kailua is home to The Kilauea Lighthouse and Lookout point. Farmers markets pop up in Kilauea twice a week.

Three quiet beaches are five minutes from Hale Kokio. You might surf, paddle, kayack or hike while there.

A trailhead is located at Anaina Hou Community Park, off of Kuhio Highway near the Kauai Mini Golf and Botanical Gardens. These are just a few suggestions for our immediate area. You will be within 15 miles of all North Shore spots. Your great location in Kilauea allows just minutes to conveniences and fun for those times that you want to stay close. This is a special benefit of a stay at Hale Kokio.

Come stay at Hale Kokio.


Magnificent Kauai offers so much natural beauty and capturing that is an activity in itself. View the Napali coast by boat, Kayak down the Hanalei River. Surf or paddle board at Kilihiwai. Hike or bike the private five mile Wai Koa Loop Trail behind the mini golf in Kilauea.

Anini Beach-Perfect for snorkeling. Grab the gear at the cotttage. There is also a beach park at Anini, pass that and continue on the road. You can park right along the beach.

Try Princeville Ranch for Zip lining and Riding. Foodland, restaurants and shops are in the Princeville shopping area

Hanalei is about 20 minutes from Kilauea. You will come to the first one way bridge on the road that takes you north. Hanalei with its eclectic vibe and famous Hanalei Beach is one of Kauai' old towns. Stop at a food truck, explore the shops and marvel at Hanalei Bay. Plan a sunset walk on the beach.

Hanalei River is a route for kayaking and viewing the tropical landscape only possible by Kayak. Did you know that Kauai is the only Hawaiian Island with navigable rivers?

Lumahai Beach: Dramatic! The beach was the site of the movie, South Pacific. There is room for off road parking at the trailhead to the beach or drive futher and park in the lot.

Keep your eye on the surf. Do not swim.

Napali Coast: The drive from Hale Kokio is 15 miles and without stops will take about 45 minutes. This takes you to the end of road. Sun bathe at Ke'e Beach. If you plan to hike you will will need a permit for camping.( If you are not a hiker, reserve a boat cruise, a great way to see the tropical landscape of this rugged coastline.)

East Side: Kapa'a. About 20 minutes from Hale Kokio headed East. The town has features the old time and new vibe of Kauai. Have a great evening dining, try a blend of Kauai coffee or a lite snack at Mermaids. There are many art shops, surf shops, and island style clothing shops. Stop for a famous Bubba Burger. And of course, visit a beach or two.

About Eleanor (NY) Rob (Kauai)

Our extended family is interested in gardening, fishing, photography and music and generally being near the ocean. In our travels, we discovered Kauai is perfect for these activities. Some family members, pictured above, call Kauai home, others of us visit as often as we can. Hale Kokio is a family owned property. Our community is welcoming, lifestyle is simple and the beauty of the island abundant. What more can we ask for?walks on the beach, cultivating our gardens, sharing harvests with friends, music by the fire, preparing meals of fresh fish and local produce.

Eleanor (NY) Rob (Kauai) purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Eleanor (NY) Rob (Kauai) chose Kilauea

We visited Kauai a number of times before our decision to purchase Hale Kokio in 2006. The property was in the perfect location, showcased the natural beauty of the North Shore in a neighborhood that was developing in authentic island style.

The grounds were so pretty and the design was perfect for additional planting and cultivation. We all decided that this was just the right place for us.

Perfect Kauai experience

  • 5 of 5

Hale Kokio embodies everything Kauai. Nature, tranquility, peacefulness, beauty...I could go on.

It's a place you leave and then dream about.

It's a place you wake up in the morning and decide which beach paradise to spend the day at.

It's a place you come back to, grill a piece of fresh fish, relax in the hot tub, and then fall asleep to the sounds of nature.

No, it's not right on the beach. On the other hand it's perfectly situated for short trips to the best the north and east side of the island offer.

Truly a fantastic place with equally fabulous hosts.

We are happy to share what we know and love about the island. We really appreciate this very generous review.

Wonderful Honeymoon Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was amazing! We loved it! It was quite and serene, just what we were looking for. We especially loved walking the grounds and picking fruits from the tropical fruit trees. The bed was super comfortable. Luckily, we are early risers. There is a rooster that likes to crow at 4am. ;-) If waking at 4am is not your thing, you may want ear plugs. I'll admit we wanted to roast that rooster by day 3. It was all part of the experience of being in nature. So we didn't let the roosters bother us. Our favorite meals were the ones that we cooked at the cottage. There are limited roads in Kauia, so the traffic can be really bad. Getting to restaurants is a bit of a challenge. We highly recommend this magical oasis! We will return!

Owner's Response: Increasingly honeymoon couples are choosing Hale Kokio as their honeymoon haven with each couple finding their own favorite features of the property. About the roosters, they are all over the island. Sometimes they stop for a short visit in our area. We do have earplugs when requested. Wish you had asked. We will get a trimmming of the tree where they were likey roosting. That is the humane way to send them on their way. Always great to know you will spread the word to arrange a stay at Hale Kokio.

An absolute oasis on the garden isle

  • 5 of 5

Hale Kokio made our stay on Kauai unforgettable. It’s location puts you in the perfect spot to explore the north shore like Hanalei or Princeville, but is also close enough to Kapa’a and Lihue that it doesn’t feel like a road trip. Rob left us flowers and fresh fruit for our arrival, and was so helpful in answering any of our questions. We had a few rainy mornings during our stay; standing on the lanai and watching the rain fall on the property was so blissful. Experience Hale Kokio for yourself if you can, we’re lucky to have them share this magical place with us all!

Come see the new decor, and new front garden.and other improvements. We really enjoy taking special care of our guests. Come stay at Hale Kokio.

Private oasis in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time spent here. The grounds are immaculate, the cottage is clean and tasteful. The ample grounds provided privacy. It was a great base to explore the island. We picked and ate lilikoi and avocado from the trees, ate breakfast on the lanai each morning and took a soak in the hot tub ea evening. We plan on coming back and will recommend to all our friends looking for a place on Kauai.

The North Shore of Kauai hosts the towns of Kilauea, Princeville and Hanalei. Drive north from the cottage and you will come to a number of beaches (from the famous to quiet and secluded). Try snorkling, parasailing, fishing or swimming at Anini, surfing or paddling or catching the sun on Hanalei, a beach party at Lumahi or early morning stroll at Tunnels. (free guides to beaches are readily available on the island)

The town of Kilauea is a gem. Try breakfast at the Common Ground on the former guava plantation, Joe's Fruit Stand for smoothies, the Kilauea Fish market for take out or outdoor meal. The Kilauea Bakery, newly expanded Healthy Hut and the general store offer quality food and supplies. Kilauea hosts 2 weekly farmers' markets. Consider taking the short drive to the Lighthouse Point. The mini golf course features native plantings and there is a hiking trail adjacent to it. Both just down Kuhio Hwy in Kilauea

Hanalei hosts ecclectic shops, art galleries, surf shops. Rent kyacks or arrange a river tour from Hanalei. Be sure to sample a 'shave ice' or Bubba Burger as you explore this town.

Princeville is known for its world class golf course. Check out the Princeville Ranch for its list of activities including Ziplining, Horseback Riding.

Travel further north to Napali Coast for hiking. Find Ke'e Beach at the end of the north road. You will discover the one lane bridges and be sure to stop at Lumahai Beach where South Pacific was filmed. A walk on this beach shows you the dramatic waters. Do not turn your back to the water.

Head east to explore East and South sides. Visit Kapaa, see Waimea Canyon, Kokee State Park, and so much more. Guidebooks are provided in the cottage.

You will be surrounded by the natural beauty of Kauai, its people, customs and so much to do. Come visit this tropical paradise
