Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Kilauea - Hale Kokio

Cottage, 1 Bedroom , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2), Private

A guest comment says it best. 'If you want a beautiful hideaway, this is it!! The grounds are wonderful, like a private park. Its quiet, relaxed and absolutely a wonderful retreat. Close to the main road yet far enough away so you never hear traffic, beaches a mile or so away and many good restaurants as well as grocery stores nearby. We liked it so much we extended our stay and will always cherish the memories of our time there. Truly a place of the “aloha spirit.”' - Guest comment

About Eleanor (NY) Rob (Kauai)

Our 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 call Kauai home, others of us visit as often as we can. 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 Kauai

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Hale Kokio is private, comfortable and welcoming. We handle all aspects of your stay, adding a personal touch. We know the island well, have family in Kauai and are happy to share what we know about the island.

Our private hot tub is a much appreciated feature. Views of the sunset from the grounds are an extra special experience. The night sky is amazing

Wonderful cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect size for one person or a couple. The grounds are lush and spacious. Location is perfect north shore spot within 15-20 minutes of both Hanalei and Kapaa. Cottage is well maintained and stocked with basic kitchen necessities. Owners provided excellent communication. Great alternative to condos or hotels.

Beautiful Rural Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying at Eleanor and Rob's place. We live rurally on Vancouver Island, Canada so this was a great retreat for us. It was very much like our home in Canada: quiet, peaceful and beautifully landscaped, but Kauai style!

Rob was very friendly and helpful on arrival and all around we would stay here again. The property was clean and well maintained and as described in the listing - there were no unpleasant surprises. Also, the beaches in North Kauai are amazing. Less people than in the south and when we were there (August 2016) the weather on the northern beaches was fantastic.

Perfect private retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a couple that's not interested in resorts with a suburban vibe. It had everything we needed- washer/dryer, kitchen with dishes, lounge chairs, and a hot tub. The lanai was a great place for a quiet meal. The beach chairs and snorkel equipment were great extras. It's tucked out of the way, and the only noise was the chickens, which are ubiquitous on the island.

Awesome Private Retreat on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Kauai and I am so glad we chose Hale Kokio. We were looking for a place to relax and live like a local and this fit the bill perfectly. The grounds were beautiful from the flowers to the chickens to the bunny. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and getting the opportunity to relax for once! This location is central to the North Shore, however not too far from the South Shore so we visited one end of the island to the other and this was a great place to stay. The house was the perfect size for us and we loved it so much we are looking to return soon!

Can we just live here, PLEASE?!

  • 5 of 5

Oh. My. Gosh. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. This property is GORGEOUS. It is not beachfront which made us second guess our choice a few times (prior to arrival) but once we arrived and saw how amazing the property and bungalow were, we were hooked. We only reserved Hale Kokio for half of our visit but would have easily given up our beach front condo for the beauty and privacy of the bungalow. The bungalow was plenty big for 2 people and the amenities are amazing! We loved having a full kitchen and were able to purchase ahi from a local farmer and create delicious meals using local products. We also LOVED the mature fruit trees on the property... what a bonus!! It was so much fun to just walk around the yard and check out the flora. The hot tub was definitely a bonus as well. We spent every evening on the back deck, relaxing in the hot tub or on the chairs. It was such a magical place. We would move there in a heartbeat.. Book this rental. You will NOT regret it.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! My husband and I have stayed at many properties in the past and this one is a jewel. We loved coming home every evening to relax in the hot tub, after long days of hiking, snorkeling and exploring the beautiful beaches and tropical forests on the island. The shower is possibly the best I have ever experienced. The kitchen and bathroom are stocked well with towels, dishes, toiletries, cleaning products, etc. The grounds are kept clean and manicured. (We miss Peaches!) Rob and Lisa are friendly and helpful (Thanks again for the fresh coconut.)The house is small but perfect for two in love! It's location near the Kilauea Lighthouse is convenient for exploring the whole island. I would sell everything I own and move here in an instant to live forever in paradise.....
