Private 1BR 1BA Upscale Home with Romantic Seclusion and Close Ocean Views

Plumeria Moon is a wonderful cottage on a completely private property overlooking the ocean on Kauai's spectacular North Shore. This home is perfect for couples celebrating their honeymoon or anniversary dream of a secluded tropical hideaway in paradise. The cottage is available with Hideaway Bay, a separately private 2 bedroom home that shares the 3 acre secluded property.

Plumeria Moon is very tastefully built with an open Hawaiian style and creative architectural features that take advantage of the amazing ocean view and tropical climate. Recently updated with bamboo hardwood floors, new sofa-sleeper, new paint and ceiling fans, as well as new linens and two flat screen LCD TVs.

There are three angled walls with large windows on the side of the cottage that face the ocean which enhance the ocean view and open up the interior space to the tropical surroundings. A well-vented copula roof design opens up the interior space to more light and takes advantage of the tropical breezes. If it gets too warm there is also a very powerful yet quiet split-unit air-conditioning system.

Property & Amenities: Plumeria Moon guests enjoy their own Hot Tub with ocean view as well as a luxurious outdoor shower with ocean view (yes, there is a full tile & glass indoor shower too!) There is a beautiful tile lanai for watching whales and albatross while dining or relaxing outdoors. There are no other homes or roads within sight or sound of the cottage and the lush landscaping is alive with colorful flowers and tropical birds.

Features: Amenities: Plumeria Moon is loaded with features and amenities...

Hot tub, short walk to white sand beach, private sun deck, covered lanai, outdoor shower, ceiling fans, split-unit air conditioner (quiet), complete kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, extra large toaster oven, rice cooker, etc. Bath towels, extra sheets (quality linens), beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, beach umbrellas, rain umbrellas.

Weber gas barbeque, satellite TV, washer/dryer, Multi-disc CD player, binoculars, Kauai guide, trail, and wildlife books, leisure reading materials (3 shelves of books), etc....

Plumeria Moon can be rented as an addition to Hideaway Bay, making the 3 acre property a romantic getaway for multiple couples.

Hideaway Bay and Plumeria Moon are licensed by the State of Hawaii and the County of Kauai as a legal Transient Vacation Rental property. This means that if you rent these homes (unlike many other rentals out there) you can be sure it will be legal and available when you arrive. TVR # 4284 / SP 2011-15

Keywords: Private, peaceful, tropical home set atop the bluffs of Kilauea Farms on the spectacular North Shore of Kauai.



Aloha and Welcome to PLUMERIA MOON, HIDEAWAY BAY and the Beautiful Garden Island of KAUA'I

1. Please Be Good Neighbors

Keep noise to a minimum, especially before 8:00 am and after 10:00 pm. Your neighbors (distant, in our case) probably have to go to work the next day, so please be considerate. Turn off outdoor lights at night whenever possible. We enjoy our dark nights when the stars are bright and beautiful. Of equal importance, our wildlife can become disoriented at night if lights are too bright. Please be sure you park only on property; we have plenty of space for parking and driving on the lawn is ok. If you have any questions about our neighbors or how to best be considerate of them, please call Thomas at 808-635-6262.

2. Beach Safety

Be mindful of the surf. Our shorelines face thousands of miles of open ocean. Northern winter storms and southern summer storms can bring us extremely dangerous surf conditions. NEVER turn your back on the ocean – summer or winter. Rogue waves can appear even in calm surf conditions. There are lifeguards at Haena Beach Park, Hanalei Pavilion, Lydgate, Poipu Beach Park, Salt Pond and Kekaha. For your family’s safety, we advise that you check with lifeguards before going into the ocean. For non-guarded beaches, you should at least check with local residents who are there regarding unseen currents or other dangers.

3. 911

In case of fire or medical emergency, call 9-1-1. The address and phone number of your accommodation is posted on the inside of both bedroom doors. For non-emergency assistance, please call Police Dispatch at 241-1711. The phone number for Wilcox Hospital in Lihue is 808-245-1100. The closest emergency treatment center is Mahelona Hospital 808-822-4961 up the hill on your right as you enter Kapa’a.

4. Weather

We do experience flash flooding during periods of heavy rain. If you must drive in this kind of weather, drive with extreme caution. Severe weather could result in the temporary closing of the main road out of Hanalei. For the most up to the minute Traffic and Weather information, please call 808-241-1725.

5. Disaster Emergencies

On the first business day of each month at 11:45 am, our Civil Defense sirens are tested. However, if you hear these sirens at any other time, please tune to AM radio station KQNG (“KONG”) at AM 570 for real-time reports and instructions. Also, the front of the Kaua’i phone book has emergency, disaster, evacuation and shelter information. Hurricane emergency supplies have been provided and are located over the bathroom in the back bedroom.

6. Security

Although theft is our neighborhood is uncommon, please be cautious with your personal belongings. It is always best to lock up your valuables. Lock your doors and windows when you leave the property.

7. Island Driving Etiquette

Please honor the posted speed limits. Frequently check your rear view mirror. If more than 4 or 5 cars are stacking up behind you, pull completely off to the side of the road and let them pass. This can also help you when driving at night as our dark roads can be confusing. The cars following you likely know where they are going and can help light the way for you.

If you are lost, remember that this is a small island and you will find your way soon. Keep driving until you find a safe place to pull over and turn around. If you can head downhill, you will get to the ocean within a few miles. Never make a U-turn on the highway.

When navigating the one-lane bridges, cross the bridges caravan style. It is usually appropriate for 5 or 6 cars to cross at a time. A simple rule of thumb: Drain the lane; if you arrive late – wait. When parking at the beaches, park, or sight-seeing locations be sure to park fully off the street, in assigned or clearly marked parking spaces. If you want to stop to enjoy the scenery, please pull completely off to the side of the road.

About Emma Guy

I have managed and operated Kauai Vacation Hideaway since 2000 when I helped the owner and my friend Mike Testa find this spectacular property. I take pride in providing a wonderful and well-kept location for people to enjoy their vacations.

Emma Guy purchased this House in 2000

Why Emma Guy chose Kilauea

This is a special area of Kauai. It is on the gorgeous North Shore yet has easy access to the East Shore and the multitude of beaches in the area. This location enjoys a dryer climate than most of the North Shore so often we can brag about sunshine while rejuvenating showers fall on areas closer to the interior mountains.

                                                                        Andrew N.

                                                                        Just wow! Everything was perfect for us. The views, privacy and seclusion of this well maintained property made our stay memorable. Sitting on the deck watching whales, albatross, and all kinds of colorful birds and vegetation was hypnotic. The convenience to all the North Shore sights and activities added to the stress free environment. The outdoor shower was amazing! The only things we would recommend are a bigger bed and a fully functioning cooktop. But we made it work. And we will definitely consider another stay at Plumeria Moon or the adjacent home which looked incredible! Mahalo to Thomas and Emma for an awesome vacation!

                                                                        Fantastic location, very private, stunning view

                                                                        sarah s.

                                                                        Spent a week at Plumeria Moon in mid November. Loved watching the storms come in off the ocean. Cottage is small but well organized. Outdoor space is generous. We cooked dinner a few times and ate outside - lovely! We watched a Laysan Albatross circle and land nearby which made my day! Plenty to do and lots of good places to eat. I much prefer the privacy of this kind of rental over a large scale hotel. Thanks for having us!

                                                                        We had the time of our lives at Plumeria Moon. The view is unforgettable and has been etched in our minds forever. We relished in the privacy of the property. The outdoor shower was simply wonderful and, in fact, we never used the indoor one! The hot tub was ready to use upon our arrival and we always looked forward to a soak after our daily activities. We found the bed to be very comfortable and got great sleep each night. The cottage had everything we needed to prepare meals for the times we did not go out to eat. We made many trips to the secluded beach (technically Waiakalua Beach) and actually loved the fact that you had to work a bit to get down and back... It made for great little cardio workouts. During our first trek down we saw a sunbathing Hawaiian monk seal -- so cool! The location on the beautiful north shore was everything we wanted. We found nothing to be too far away. We frequented the towns of Kapa'a, Anahola, Kilauea, Princeville, Hanalei and Lihue. We also made day trips to Poipu and the Waimea Canyon (I recommend lunch and a beer at Koke'e Lodge after hiking). In short - Plumeria Moon was everything we were looking for in our Hawaiian vacation... the rustic feel (no pretense here), seclusion & privacy surrounded by nature, and just the right amenities. Not to mention just having a peaceful place to retreat after our daily outdoor adventures. We were so sad to leave and are absolutely determined to visit again! MAHALO!!!

                                                                        Lovely location- tiny bed!


                                                                        Beautiful location above a wonderful beach (prepare yourselves, 270 steps down and up), with a nice valley and ocean view. Kitchen was a bit odd, with a two-burner stove directly underneath a cabinet, and the bed was definitely NOT a queen (more like a full or a double). The grounds were beautiful with multiple plumeria trees, and we enjoyed the visits from the feral pigs.
