Spacious house in a neighborhood. Neighboring houses are close, but much privacy from tropical foliage. Far more private than a condominium. Nice location, because close to many beaches, walking distance to small town amenities, short drive to either Hanalei or back to Kapaa. Kilauea is breathtakingly beautiful.

piece of paradise
piece of paradise
After living on Oahu for over ten years it took a trip to Kilauea Coconut House to remind me of what paradise really is. I recently had my 40th birthday party there and it was perfect. This house had every amenity you need for a nice quiet vacation. The location is great and I must say that you should take a moment every night to look up and see all the stars without the distractions of city lights. The beds were comfortable, the towels were clean, and the ambiance was perfect. The closed in Lanai is a great place to cool off in the evenings and the hot tub is great for the children during the day and the adults during the night. There are stores conveniently located nearby with everything you may need for your stay. I really enjoyed the guest book with actual reviews form previous guests on where to visit and eat during our stay. Overall I recommend this house to everyone who wants to enjoy a quiet get away in a quaint setting. Me and my family will most likely make this a yearly vacation get away. Thank you Cindy for a wonderful birthday.

Owner response: Thanks so much, Jesse, for such a nice review. I greatly appreciate it and am delighted you enjoyed the house and its location. Cindy
This is a great house and great location! We were able to visit several parts of the island and still make it home each night to cook and relax if we wanted to. The house is well stocked from the kitchen to beach gear and because we had a baby with us it was great to have a porta crib and sand toys. Each room is welcoming and cozy and was lovelier than we had expected. We walked to the small shopping area a few times that was a few blocks away; the bakery and fish market were amazing! Close by was the best beach, very quiet and relaxing Anini. We rented bikes and rode along the coast, hiked Na Pali, surfed and snorkeled, there is plenty to do and see and this location worked well for us. The house felt very private even though it is in a neighborhood with houses close together. There are lots of lush green plants and when you step inside it feels so cool and calming. Loved the house and the area and hope to return again soon!

Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: I am a native of Marin County, California. I first visited Kauai with classmates, the summer after our graduation from UCSF Nursing School. A couple years later, I spent my honeymoon visiting Big Island, Maui and Kauai. A few years after that, our family (which by then included a 5 year old son and a 7 year old daughter) joined my childhood friend, Gail, and her young family for a stay at a Princeville condo. The trip was so wonderful that our family returned the next four years, and on that last year's stay at Princeville, in 1989, I found the house in Kilauea, and with my husband's blessings, bought it. I have operated the house as a vacation rental since 1991, with our family enjoying summers there over the years. Now that the kids are grown, and I finally have my own business, and the flexibility that goes with that, we are able to visit Kauai throughout the year. For the past seven years, I have been building an esthetic laser practice. My office is in the Novato Community Hospital, which is conveniently located about one mile from my house. Primarily, I do laser hair removal, but I also do other esthetic laser treatments, as well as Botox and dermal fillers. My two sons still live at home. John has a degree in architecture from University of Oklahoma, but works primarily as a massage therapist and is working on his prerequisites for admission to Physical Therapy school. Charlie attends Santa Rosa Junior College and is working on prerequisites for Engineering. My daughter, Torry, graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Art History and UC Extension with a certificate in Interior Design and Architecture. She lives in San Francisco and does residential and commercial interior design and architecture. She is currently working on a project at the Ventana Inn at Big Sur.
Why the Owner Chose Kilauea:
We liked the small town, rural charm of Kilauea, the fact we could walk to the Kilauea bakery for a pesto biali or macadamia nut sticky bun or coconut pastry in the morning. The first couple years we had the house there was a bakery in Kilauea called Jacques of Kauai. They had the best rye molasses bread! Hurricane Iniki shut Jacques of Kauai down forever, but we still remember how good that bread was and it was a good part of the appeal of Kilauea for us. There are no hotels or condos in Kilauea, and we liked that. We were really close to our favorite beaches: Kalihiwai, Secret, Anini and Rock Quarry are just a few short minutes drive from the house. If we forget something for our BBQ or picnic at the beach, it is never a problem to drive back home for matches or whatever! My daughter loves her morning runs to the Kilauea Lighthouse, and my daughter and I both enjoy checking out the shops in the Kong Lung center. We like to hit the farmers' markets in all the towns, but having one right in Kilauea on Saturday mornings is really nice. The family really loves the abundant crops we get from the avocado, mango and lychee trees. We used to let the coconuts ripen, but it is too dangerous since the trees are so tall now. We have them trimmed before they start dropping. We like being not that far from our favorite north shore haunts (Ke'e Beach, Tunnels Beach, Hanalei) and still only 20 minutes to Kapa'a.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
What is special about Kilauea Coconut House is that it is not a condo, but a full sized house. It has a kitchen equipped far beyond what you would ever expect in a vacation rental. The bed sheets are of extra nice quality--all 300 thread count (or higher) and 100% cotton. No polyester blends in this house! Two features that are a little hard to find in other rentals are the spa (and it is an extra large one) and a fireplace, which is actually a pretty nice and cozy thing to have in December and January. If you are fortunate to hit the right seasons, you will have an abundance of avocados ripen during your stay (maybe hundreds!) The lychees are exquisite and we have had bumper crops of those in late May and early June. Mangos are ripe in July. The spacious great room is a plus. It is 20 feet x 40 feet with a high vaulted ceiling. If your party is large, you won't feel crowded at all. One of the things we really enjoyed when we first got the house is not having to find a parking spot and walk a good distance into the house, like we had at the condo in Princeville. It is so nice to just pull into the driveway, and being just steps from the front door.
