About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.25 Baths--Sleeps 6


By now, you have discovered that you have your choice of probably a hundred vacation homes. So why should you select Skipper's out all those homes instead of one of those places in Princeville? The answer is simple: if you want to experience your Kauai vacation in a town setting, choose Princeville. But if you want to be on Kauai in the natural, unspoiled beauty of Hawaii, then Skipper's in Moloa'a Valley is what you are looking for!

Skipper's Beach Cabana is a newly-built plantation house nestled away in the enchanted Moloa'a Valley. If you look at a map of Kauai, you will find Moloa'a Bay on the upper right hand corner. Out of the chaos of tourist destinations, the only modern feature about this place is the peaceful comfort of this home and its amenities.

This is what you can expect at Skipper's:

--three very comfortable queen beds and two floor mats for overflow (like two extra kids)

--Free WiFi

--Cable TV on the flat screen TV

--a fully-stocked modern kitchen with stone countertops

--a portable crib in the bedroom and a high chair in the dining room

--two modern baths with matching stone countertops

--a refreshing outdoor Hawaiian Shower

--a large living area with numerous windows to bring the beauty of Kauai inside

--a large outdoor lanai for outdoor dining, if you wish

--beach equipment in the garage

--local and long distance calling for the entire US and Canada

--Verizon Wireless Phone capability

The surrounding jungle beckons you with lush vegetation, tropical songbirds and the muted sound of the nearby ocean surf. The large grounds contain palm trees, banana trees and other fruit trees for your enjoyment.

And oh, the beach!!! The highly-rated Moloa'a Beach is only a five minute walk away. Since this golden sand beach is off the beaten path, you will often find yourself alone in the expansive sands. If you like swimming, snorkeling with schools of colorful fish, and secluded sun tanning, you will love Moloa'a Beach.


In a word, it was perfect. My wife is a tough customer when it comes to interiors and she was blown away at how tasteful, relaxing, fun, and well-though-out the place was. Every time we needed something, it was there. It had a great tropical feel and the surroundings were rejuvenating, including the cats and chickens. We enjoyed being there so much that we hardly bothered to eat out and just grilled fish about every night. We watched movies and just hung out and enjoyed time as a family (we must have watched Scooby Doo and the Ghost Pirates 7 times!). When we left for the last leg of our trip, for which we stayed at the Hyatt, we were seriously sad and depressed to be leaving our home away from home. We would stay there again in a second and recommend it highly to anyone considering a vacation to Kauai--especially if they have kids and want a more relaxing atmosphere than expensive resorts & restaurants.

Thank you and we hope to stay there again soon! Matt F.

Thank you, Tony, for everything. It was more than we ever expected and the accommodations were exactly what we were looking for.

We got back home late last night and are already missing the islands. Of the three homes we rented on the islands, yours was the best. So clean and such an impressive attention to detail we've not seen before in our travels with everything needed to make the most of our stay and the outside shower was a total bonus. The beach was perfect and never crowded.

The best of both worlds! Rural beauty and yet close to civilization--you will notice that Skipper's is centrally-located to all the fun activities Kauai has to offer. Wonderful restaurants and shopping are 15 minutes in either direction on the highway.

Come experience Skipper's Aloha on Kauai--after all, it is only a Dream Away.

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many vacation rental properties around the world and we agreed that this was the best equipped in anticipating the needs of guests. Everything that you could possibly want for a Hawaiian beach vacation was there...and in multiple sizes! From beach shoes, to flippers, boogie boards, chairs, and coolers.

Given the cost of food on Hawaii, all the extras in the kitchen were really appreciated, condiments, spices, oils, sugars, and dressings. The kitchen itself was very well-equipped and the first one with sharp knives!

The grounds were lovely, we were two senior couples, but the property would be great for folks with kids. Loads of space to let off steam, chase roosters and try to make friends with the kitties.

The local beach really was a five minute walk away and there was a good hiking trail at either end.

Tony was quick to respond to the few inquiries we had ahead of time and we were very impressed with his efforts to ensure that his guests recycle!

Beautiful area. Definitely will come in the summer as the beach nearby was too rough.

Delightful - a perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

I can’t describe adequately how spoiled we have become after staying at Skipper’s. My husband and I have stayed at a number of Airbnb and vrbo sites, and this ranks among the best of the best. Driving down a secluded, rainforested road you wind your way into a hidden driveway that leads to a cozy, welcoming cottage that is thoroughly equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing Hawaiian vacation, and feels like home the minute you step inside.... (even though my decor does not include anything related to Gilligan’s Island). It’s clear that people near and far return to this place for their getaways, as the kitchen is fully stocked with food basics (a variety of bbq marinades and baking supplies awaited us from previous guests - this may of course change but it’s nice that the cleaner left it behind for us to use if we wanted). One of the best beaches in Kauai is a couple minute walk down the road. The garage is fully stocked with all beach necessities possible - boogie boards, snorkels, fins, mats, chairs, toys, etc. There is a multitude of fans, extra blankets, pillows, games, and books. The movie collection includes just about every movie filmed on Kauai and other Hawaiian islands. Tony was extremely friendly and easy to communicate with -we’re just sad we didn’t get to meet the gardener who sounds great based on previous guest reviews. Oh, there are also a ton of fruit trees on the property though none were in season/ripe when we were there. I could go on forever but kind of wish I hadn’t said anything because we want to keep this wonderful place for ourselves! The only drawback: no bird book. This should be remedied. :)

Thank you so much to Tony and crew for making our stay a thoroughly comfortable and memorable one, and we hope to return in the near future!

Worthy of Repeat Visits - My Third Trip Here!

  • 5 of 5

I know I've already placed two reviews about this place from my previous vacations here, and can only say that each time I visit Skipper's Cabana, that its appeal increases each time. I'm always impressed with the location, its quietness and solitude. Tony has undertaken to ensure everything a traveller could ever possibly need is right here. It is evident that he has taken a personal interest in maintaining and upgrading this property to the lovely, comfortable vacation rental that it is. You will not hesitate for a moment, as every possible amenity is here, from a fully stocked and spacious kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and two nice bathrooms (and not to even mention the refreshing outdoor shower). He even includes beach equipment and beach towels, so don't pack any of those items. Make your plans for Skipper's now, and leave your cares behind!
