Privacy, convenient location (15 min to Hanalei), and views, views, views!!! Our farm is perched on the slopes of Namahana Mountain and the edge of the Halalea Forest Reserve, on a secluded lot. At the same time you are just minutes to the world class beaches of Kauai's North Shore. Beautiful Kalihiwai Bay is tranquil and glassy in the summertime and perfect for family fun, but in wintertime the big swells roll in, gracing us with some of the best advanced surfing conditions in Hawai'i.

Even closer to home, Pilates Kauai, the best personal training studio on the North Shore, is just a pop through our palm hedge.

Kilauea town is a short drive down the mountain and provides necessities like groceries and gas (and yoga!) in a cute and funky small-town setting. The Kilauea Fish Market is a must-do for lunch or dinner. Its Ahi Wrap featured on the Travel Channel's as 'The Best Thing I Ever Ate.'

World famous Hanalei town is the quintessential beach town, with a laid-back, happy vibe that only Kauai can create. Coffee, beach boutiques, yoga, surfboard rental: you'll find it all here.

Returning home to your mountaintop retreat could quite possibly be the most beautiful drive home you'll ever experience.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Originally from Los Angeles, we found this small piece of Kauai aina in 2005 (or more correctly, it found us) and we have never looked back. Because it is our home, we care for it with great pride and attention to detail.

Why the Owner Chose Kilauea:
Seeing is believing. When we dream of beauty, we dream this. If peace, earth, sky, nature, prana are your things, this is your place.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This site is one of the most wonderful spots on the north shore, a well kept local secret and quite simply, our favorite place on earth. Nestled on the slopes of Mt. Namahana, a site revered by the ancient Hawaiians as sacred and belonging to the keepers of souls, the energy and beauty of the natural surroundings of our home never fail to nurture and inspire. All within a handy drive to north shore sites and world class beaches.
