Gilligan's-a Secluded Honeymoon Cottage Near a Beautiful Beach

Sleeps2
Bedrooms 1
Bathrooms1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights

Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 2)--close to the beach!

And not only secluded, but only a four and a half minute walk to a gorgeous and private beach! Gilligan's Beach Cottage is not like one of the houses packed into town--it is about 15 minutes east of Princeville in rural Kauai in an unspoiled, natural valley called Moloa'a. If you check it out on a map, you will find Moloa'a Bay in the upper right hand corner. Since there is very limited public parking near the beach, this beach is relatively undiscovered by tourists. Hollywood, however, did discover this idylic location in the 1960's and filmed the entire pilot episode of 'Gilligan's Island' here--thus, the name we chose.

Gilligan's Cottage is situated on a large rural lot which is filled with fruit and palm trees, to the delight of our guests. This valley is sparsely populated, and privacy and tranquility is what you will find here. Gilligan's has one bedroom, one full bath with a private outdoor Hawaiian Shower (which is very popular with our guests!). The cottage is fully modern in every way, yet still retains the charm of Old Hawaii in its plantation setting.

Moloa'a Beach--oh, the beach! Just a four and a half minute walk down a lovely paved country road. Very beautiful, very clean and very LONELY! Many times, you will be the ONLY one to be walking this beach watching turtles, picking up shells, and observing an occasional Monk seal. This is the type of setting in which you totally forget that there is a civilization!

But the nicest part--civilization is just a few minutes drive away from Gilligan's! You will notice that Moloa'a is centrally-located on Kauai, and after a day at restaurants, shopping, hiking, and touring paradise, you still have Gilligan's to come home to--only a dream away...

Amazing Secluded Central home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gilligan's was awesome. Tony was an amazing host and kept in tough the whole trip. I love the location of the cottage as it was very central from the south side to north side. The beach that is just a short walk away was a nice hidden gem as well and was never crowded. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Couldn't have been any more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The owner has thought of everything you need for a totally enjoyable experience. He is VERY responsive with communications and it was truly the best vacation experience we have ever had.

I have used VRBO for several years and have had many great experiences. This one has been my best experience to date and although we aren't home yet I can't wait to start planning my next trip.

Kauai was magical and impacted me greatly. The cottage is in a secluded location and offered adequate privacy from the other house on the property. If the guests up top of the hill get loud you can hear them but only slightly. The cottage is almost completely surrounded by tropical plants and has many fruit trees on the property. We collected avocados most mornings but you have to beat the chickens to them. :)

Owner provides beach chairs, toys, snorkel gear, coolers, etc. the location to the beach is very convenient. Though we never walked it it isn't far at all. Beautiful location for snorkelling, swimming and boogie boarding.

Perfection for us. It was all we could have asked for except air conditioning. It did get a little warm in the mid day when cooking so we bought a second fan and that made it much better. But if you have ever been to Hawaii, you know not to expect AC. Night time was very comfortable and I had to use the sheets to cover up as it actually got a little cool.

Can't wait to get back!

Great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this place to any couples that want some actual peace while on their Hawaiian vacation. It is comfortable, has every amenity you could need (fully stocked kitchen, beach gear, washer/dryer, WiFi, grill), feels super private, and is just minutes away from a low key but beautiful beach. There is no cell service, at least not AT&T, but for a true get away I think that's a good thing! The cottage is also stocked with all kinds of books about the island and things to do, and even has a collection of cds with chill island music .. so relaxing!! We loved our stay and will recommend the cottage to all our friends.

We enjoyed our stay at this nicely appointed private cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The private, serene setting was sublime and we enjoyed the clean, comfortable cottage that had local charm with all of the modern immenities. The outdoor shower was nice to come home to after a long hike or a trip to the beach. The place was well-stocked with the basics and more. The owner came by in the middle of our stay and was very welcoming. I had been looking at this place for years and it did not disappoint. A little piece of paradise.

Perfectly secluded and romantic area

  • 5 of 5

Travelling for an overdue Honeymoon and this place was incredible! .

Clean , spacious for 2, the songbirds in the evening and the outdoor shower were all amazing. Moloa'a Bay is a gem of a beach. We spent a week on Kauai. 3 nights in Poipu and 4 nights here, and all in all , we wished we did all 7 at Gilligan's. Next time we will book earlier to ensure more time here. Well appointed with beach toys, towels, snorkeling gear, guidebooks, thewifi was strong for checking work emails in the evening :( lol. Great little organic coffee shop / bakery nearby - Get the Chai smoothie as it is amazing. Im still sad to no longer be there and CAN'T WAIT to return and stay at this property! Thanks Tony!!

An amazing property with an amazing location. A beautiful blessing.

  • 5 of 5

The property was gorgeous. The cottage was an amazing retreat. Very cozy and extremely well stocked. The instructions given to us prior to our arrival were very helpful and clear. There was not one issue. The pictures are amazing but still do not fully depict the beauty.
