Moloaa Bay cottage description

Peacefulness and Natural Beauty. Enjoy the ambiance of old Hawaii from this quaint rental location. A narrow unpaved winding road leads to Moloaa Mahina Hale which is within a small beach community on Kauai’s Northeastern shore. Watch the Egret Birds return to their nesting grounds at rivers edge. View an abundance of stars from your private deck which is breathtaking on a clear night. Listen as you hear the waves crashing at nearby Moloaa Bay. Only a 5 minute walk or Kayak to experience one of Kauai most beautiful bays offering white sand beaches with shade tree protection, interesting tide pools and good snorkeling . Hike along a gentle pathway high above the oceanside to a bird sanctuary offering incredible views of Moloaa Bay and the coastline. You may see whales or dolphins playing in the bay.

Natural Environment Setting: A creative environment for individuals who seek peace and tranquility in thier lifestyle. The setting is all natural with established tropical flora, fruit bearing trees and plantings. This location also has the natural wildlife sounds from the bellowing of the bullfrogs, numerous birds, wild ducks, and of course the famous and colorful chickens that are now sited everywhere on Kauai. Perhaps earplugs would be suggested for those who are light sleepers. Mosquitoes are limited due to the brackish water consisting of both ocean and fresh water.

No Air Conditioning: There is no air conditioning in this unit. We offer ceiling fans, portable Vernardo fans and the natural trade winds to help keep you cool. The hotest part of the day is between 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm We suggest planning your day outside the unit during this time period to avoid the discomfort for those who can't take the heat or take a swim in Moloaa Bay or kayak down the river to the beautiful Moloaa Bay that will cool you down with ocean breezes and large shade trees along the shoreline. For sun lovers, the deck is an incredible tanning location from early morning until late afternoon.

We offer Wi Fi Internet; Satellite Dish TV with commercial free musical stations. Enjoy TV in bedroom or living room. Enjoy native wild life surrounding this location and birds bouncing about in the enormous monkeypod tree offering shade and beauty to this site. There are also lovely and relaxing reading locations on this property.

          Other Amenities

              • Due to the stairwell access to this home by going up 16 feet high in the air, we feel that it would be too difficult for the elderly to access with ease. Also, due to the height of the cottage, we feel children would be at risk without complete adult supervision. We would welcome both, but feel that we need to make this disclosure....moreless

                      Moloaa Mahina Hale (House of the Lazy Moon) is unique because it is a rare and comfortable retreat for those seeking a private and dropped out location. You can hear the ocean and smell the ocean from your cottage which is only a stones throw away. Become part of the small community for your stay. You can take a short five minute walk to beautiful Moloaa Bay which is an interesting beach offering surfing, snorkeling, sunbathing and beach combing. Due to limited public access and parking, this beach is not very well attended making it one of the most private beaches on Kauai. You are 3 miles from the Anahola General Store providing sufficient convenience items. and is located next door to the Anahola Post Office and the Famous Ono Char Burger Stand. Moloaa is located half way between Anahola and Kilauea Town. You are only 20 minutes away from Hanalei Town featuring fine dining and shopping. Drive out of Moloaa Valley to view other wonders of The Magical Garden Island
