FYI: when inquiring about availability and you haven't purchased air tickets yet (you just want to know what I have available): don't put any dates in, then click on: "Ask Owner a Question". I will answer you right away and let you know what is available for your window of time. ALSO: please do not make a reservation request and put in your credit card number (just because the calendar appears to be open), before contacting me about your desired dates. Occasionally the calendar is incorrect (human or software errors). Let me know ahead of time your dates, and I will make sure that I give you the most up-to-date info about availability. I try very hard to answer within 2 hours or less.

- National Geographic Traveler Magazine has named Kauai one of 21 "Best of the World" must see destinations for 2017, making it one of only three U.S. locations on the list.

My Hanalei Coconut Cottage is right in the heart of Hanalei just a 3 minute walk to wonderful Hanalei Town and a 4 minute walk to the spectacular beach at Hanalei Bay. All properties listed under Hanalei are not all IN Hanalei, so ask questions of the owners.

It is 3 bedroom/3 bath, BUT we don't charge you extra if you are a party of only 2. The rates are competitive with other smaller cottages. If you are 2, you pay the base rate, if more in your party, there is a charge for each additional person, up to 5 maximum.

This recently remodeled 3 bedroom, 3 bath home features a gated entry for privacy, new state-of-the-art air conditioning system in each bedroom, a new full kitchen with dishwasher and granite counters, 2 private hot/cold outdoor showers, and a master bedroom with jacuzzi and separate shower, 2 sinks. Full sized laundry inside home. Wonderful view towards the backyard, and beyond; no houses behind us, just all natural vegetation and the Hanalei mountains in the distance sometimes with 2000+ ft. long waterfalls on them.

Lots of privacy in this wonderful cottage, quiet, peaceful, fabulous master bath with jetted tub. All tile floors, feels good on your feet and exceptionally clean.

About Carolyn

I first bought property in Hanalei in 1977, because it was so quaint and had that 'small town' beach community feel. It's just like a little surfing town out of the 60's.

Carolyn purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Carolyn chose Hanalei

Hanalei is the most unique spot in all of Hawaii: quaint little surfing style town out of the 60's. Walk everywhere: to town, beach, pier, dinner, groceries, coffeeshop. When people who live in the state of Hawaii want to take a vacation and can't go to the mainland, they come to Hanalei !

What makes this cottage unique

Close to the beach, close to the village, ideal location.

terrific and well positioned group or family holiday house

  • 4 of 5

Our stay including booking/paying procedure was all smooth sailing. The instructions for finding the house and to gain entry were perfect. The local food shopping tips were appreciated. The house has everything you may think you'll need and more, including beach chairs, umbrella, toys, boogie boards, beach towels etc. Its very spacious, comfortable and extremely well situated, a few minutes walk to the main road and 5 minutes from the beach. The kitchen, bathrooms and laundry are well appointed including soaps, washing powders etc.

A couple of minor things will make it absolutely perfect. The first is better block-out curtains or blinds in the bedrooms, the current ones a quite sheer. The second is better lighting, its a bit dim on a cloudy day and at night.

I will definitely highly recommend this very well maintained and spacious home.

Perfection in Hanalei

  • 5 of 5

This house is even better than I thought it would be. It's a one minute walk from all the restaurants and shopping and about a five minute walk to the beach. The house is surrounded by lush tropical plants and hedges so it's very private. There's a view of the mountains from the back deck. The house is open and modern. The kitchen is well-equipped. We cooked Christmas dinner there and had everything we needed. I really enjoyed the full-size washer and dryer for towels and swimsuits. The house was perfectly clean and the master bed was SO comfortable. Beach chairs, a wheeled cooler, and beach towels are provided. The owner was very good about communicating with me from the time I made the reservation until I got back home. If and when I go back to Kauai, I will be renting this house!

Brilliant stay at Coconut Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 spent a fantastic week in Hanalei Bay at Coconut Cottage. This house is perfectly located - a short stroll to cafes, shops & the beach. Easy walk for my morning latte at The Hanalei Bread Company & Mai Tais at Tahiti Nui is a must do! The house is immaculate & was perfect for our family. Everything was thought of including beach chairs, umbrella & cooler bag for the beach. Beds exceptionally comfortable- the best we'd slept on for our whole trip! Carolyn was a delight to deal with and very organised. I can't speak highly enough of this property and hope to return one day. Thank you for helping to make our holiday fantastic!

Fantastic Rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in Hanalei for our vacation and it was great. Close location to beach. Spacious, comfortable house. A/C in bedrooms was a major plus (very humid the week that we were there). Outdoor showers with hot/cold water. Walking distance to Na Pali Catarmaran Tour. Spacious back deck. Beach chairs, cooler, and umbrella were key. Would absolutely rent again.

Hanalei Harmony Home

  • 5 of 5

Last week my wife and I along with our 2 adult daughters had a wonderful vacation in Kauai's charming Hanalei town. Our home for the week was "Coconut Cottage" - a well-appointed house only a minute's walk from the village centre. It was perfect for us with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. When we weren't eating great food served up in the local places, we prepared our own in the fully outfitted kitchen. I often play chef and really enjoyed the fast heat of the gas range and the granite countertops on both sides for prep. The space here is wide open front to back so the kitchen-island work allows you to see and talk with others sitting on the barstools in front, at the table in the dining area or over on the comfy sofas in the bright lounging zone. Two sets of patio doors in this area and another in the master bedroom open to a full length deck on the back of the house, which faces westerly. Varieties of palms, banana, and a large acacia tree provide late day shade on that side. Some bougainvillea vines work their way through the greenery and were in bloom. This all provided good cover and perching for local birds like zebra doves, japanese white-eyes, red-crested cardinals and white-rumped shamas. We also spotted a few species of anoles and geckos hunting among the leaves with the odd one visiting the deck for close-ups and to take care of the few insects. A family of 'red-junglefowl' helps with bug cleanup too - the little week old chicks following mom around with dad on security alert. He also doubles as your alarm clock.

The house is floored completely in large ceramic tile and all interior wall corners are generously rounded - two features I liked about this bright and airy home. It is tucked in behind a tall, nicely pruned evergreen hedge with a split-swing drivethrough gate. Access to the beach on Hanalei Bay is just down the street, about a 5 minute stroll away. The homeowner is very thorough and prompt with communications. She has great contacts in the town who helped us with tour booking and local exploration. My wife and I have only in the last few years started to rent houses for our vacations. If this is your cup-of-tea, then Coconut Cottage is the place to be!
