Property description

Come to the Garden Hideaway at Lotus Farm. Experience the Hawaii most tourists never see. This soulful, laid-back slice of paradise is set among three lush and lovingly maintained acres on a mature, established organic tropical fruit farm and palm nursery We are only a five minute drive from several secluded, pristine beaches and rivers.

We are excited to announce that after an eight month hiatus, we have officially been granted a permit (Z-IV-2015-32) by the County of Kauai to hosts guests at our Garden Hideaway here at our farm and nursery. We are in the process of renovating our deck and outdoor tub and shower area and are now accepting reservations for stays beginning anytime after October 16, 2015 and into 2016.

The Hideaway was created with your every comfort in mind. Your home away from home is tucked away down its own private drive and enclosed in a serene, tropical Asian style courtyard. A comfortable outdoor lounging lanai, under a pergola of tropical vines, looks out over the peaceful meditation garden. The open floor plan and high pinewood ceilings create a sense of spaciousness in the light, airy, uncluttered and tastefully done 500 sq. ft. one room cottage with dining, living and sleeping areas.

Our guests rave about the enclosed outdoor shower and bath area that is directly off the indoor 1/2 bath. The cottage is done in shades of apricot, beige, gold and green and decorated with Hawaiian art prints and furnished in bamboo, wicker and rattan. The comfortable king size bed is covered in cotton bedding. Cotton robes are also provided.

The Hideaway comes stocked with goods for a light, simple breakfast. We provide freshly roasted, organic, hand picked kona coffee beans with coffee grinder and coffee maker, an assortment of teas, sweeteners and whatever type of milk, half and half, almond milk, etc. that you request. The Hideaway fridge is stocked with complimentary organic flavored yogurts, freshly made granola, macadamia nuts and fresh fruits depending on the season. Fresh, homemade beverages such as coconut water, ginger lemonade, macadamia nut milk, tangelo and orange juice are also available at your request.

Our homestay permit does not allow us to provide a toaster oven, microwave or stove top for our guests. Fortunately there are several great take out establishments within ten minutes of the Hideaway. Kilauea Fish Market, Pau Hana Pizza, Healthy Hut Salad Bar and Pacos Tacos, to name a few. If you are lucky enough to be here on a Saturday, head to the Farmer's Market in Kilauea next to the Mini Golf and pick up all kinds of freshly prepared goodies and bakery items. The kitchenette area has a refrigerator to store your snacks and takeaway food and a bar size sink. There is a coffee maker, espresso machine, blender, juicer, glasses, dinnerware and silverware for your use. There is also a clothes washer and dryer at the Hideaway for your convenience.

We provide beach towels, beach blanket, beach chairs, boogie boards, mask and snorkels, beach umbrella, picnic cooler and shopping bags for your excursions.

Our central location is ideal. We are just 50 minutes from the Lihue airport and 35 minutes from the end of the road in Haena, making anywhere on the island an easy half day excursion. The small local flavored town of Kilauea is only five minutes from the Hideaway. There you will find a great bakery, shops, restaurants, pharmacy, post office and other conveniences. We are longtime Kauai residents who are happy to share our favorite spots with you as well as setting up special requests such as in house massage and other holistic health treatments.

We established our working farm nearly 35 years ago. Lotus Farm and Nursery was one of the first organic farms on Kauai. You'll see us around the property working the land and tending the nursery. Our orchards produce macadamia nuts, coconuts, oranges, tangelos, lemons, limes, coconuts, avocados, mango, lychee and longon. We sell our fruit commercially to brokers in Canada, fruit stands on Kauai and local residents who come by to pick up their special orders. Our nursery supplies landscapers with exotic palms, tropical ornamental plants and fruit trees.

From our guestbook-
'We had a wonderful time here. Every evening we looked forward to coming 'home' to our perfect cottage. Perfectly private, perfectly surrounded by lushness...We will be recommending you to all of our friends.'

'Thank you for all of the love you've put into this beautiful cottage. We were looking for a place to be close to nature and finding your Hideaway was beyond perfect.'

'It has been a pleasure staying in such a beautiful, thoughtfully maintained place. The outdoor shower and tub have been my favorites, but the whole cottage and gardens are great.'

'What a perfect honeymoon spot. It is so romantic and secluded.'

'We've had such a beautiful visit here in your sublime love nest.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: We love our life here on the north shore of Kauai.Our teenage daughter was born here and is now nearly grown and off to college. We are hardworking, conscious, aware people who enjoy the healthy lifestyle and unique sense of community that Kauai offers. We feel very fortunate and blessed to be able to offer visitors the unique experience of staying on a working organic tropical farm and nursery.

Why the Owner Chose Kilauea:
Our farm is a labor of love and never ending work in progress. We are deeply rooted here and have made it our life's work. David purchased raw land in 1981 and personally cleared, graded, irrigated and planted it. Over the years his deep love for and study of the plant world has made him an expert on palms, cycads, flowering trees and fruit trees. We are both avid world travelers and Lisa designed the Hideaway as a perfect getaway with everything she would be looking for in a home away from home. Our location is ideal in every way. Minutes to stunning beaches and Kilauea town, yet still in the country.
