About the property

Private Kilauea Estate - Two houses. 3 Bedroom Home and 1 Bedroom Ocean Suite.

Welcome to Jungle Bee!

Please watch our video in the picture window

video tab above...

There are two homes on the property, a 3 Bedroom Main House and a Newly remodeled 1 Bedroom Ocean Suite.

3 Bedroom Plantation Style home- 2 king sized master bedrooms with attached bathrooms. One smaller sized room with a trundle bed that pulls out to 2 twin beds. A third full bathroom is directly outside the small bedroom. There is also a queen sized pull out couch in the living room. This home has a large open kitchen/living/dining area, which is great for family gatherings as well as an attached rear Lanai (porch) with panoramic ocean and garden views. The home is fully appointed with a chef worthy kitchen, High Quality linens, and comfortable island style furnishings. Amenities include high speed wireless, HD cable TV, phone with free long distance throughout North America (now also Canada and Mexico), iPod docking stereo, kids toys and books, and much more (full list below) Kauai’s trade winds keep the house quite cool, but we do offer Air conditioning in the two master bedrooms. This home was completely updated in 2009. We also provide six hybrid style bicycles, snorkel gear, coolers, and beach chairs.

1 Bedroom Ocean Suite – New as of September 2014!

This house sits perched on top of a valley leading down to the beautiful secret beach and the ocean views are amazing! The 785 sq. ft. Suite is fully equipped with a well appointed kitchen, washer dryer, full bath with rain shower, King bed, 42” flat screen TV, Bluetooth IPod stereo, phone with free long distance in North America (now also Canada and Mexico), HD digital Cable TV and Wireless internet, and quality furnishings. The outside space offers a large sunset deck with an outdoor dining table, seating area, hot tub, outdoor shower, and two lounge chairs. Enjoy stunning sunset views from the deck or the living room and fall asleep to the sounds of the waterfall in the valley below.

Please ask about renting one of the two homes in the off season. We only rent to one party any given time period so if you rent one of the two homes you will be the only guests on the 13 acre property and will have exclusive private access to the sunset deck, hot tub, and grounds. One house pricing is typically 699/night for the Ocean Suite, and 799/night for the 3 bedroom Main House, We require the rental of both homes together in the summer season (June 1 - September 15).

Jungle Bee Farms is a Cacao or Chocolate farm, but the plant diversity is impressive.

You will have 13 acres to explore on our private trail between the homes and the beach. Secret beach is one of Kauai’s true gems. With its limited public access you can enjoy this mile long stretch of white sand beach practically by yourself. Secret beach offers experienced surfers world-class waves in the winter and is usually calm in the summer. In your wanderings, you’ll discover nature’s bounty as you walk through our exotic fruit orchards, pick tropical flowers, and enjoy the two magical waterfalls on the property.

If it sounds like you’ve discovered the Garden of Eden, you’ve got the right idea

Rates for renting Both Houses:

May - September 1,099 / night

October - April 999/night (excluding Christmas December 19th -Jan 3 2017/18 special rates apply)

Magical little corner of the Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time staying at Jungle Bee. The entire property is a dream! The area is a great place to explore for both children and adults. The nature walk down to the beach is picture perfect with amazing colorful foliage throughout. We found it hard to leave Jungle Bee to explore the rest of Kauai due to the amenities and scenery on the property. The lighthouse is just a quick jog or bike ride away. There are plenty of toys for children, bikes, snorkeling gear to explore the island fish/sea turtles!, and boogie boards to play with. The location is in an amazing area of Kauai- quick drives to Hanalei, Napali coast trailhead, and much more. The sunsets from the patio are incredible, looking over the tropical atmosphere to the ocean. Definitely a place a would love to go back to someday.

Absolutely magical

  • 5 of 5

I cannot even begin to describe the beauty of this property. My 8 year old describes it as magical. Well maintained, clean and beyond expectation. Jimmy was a great host! We rented both houses and it was perfect. Made an amazing vacation. Thank you Jimmy!

Beautiful vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family came to Kauai to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday. The Jungle Bee worked out great for us. The "big house" is very nice, with lovely gardens and a beautiful view of the ocean. The balcony is ideal for enjoying the scenery while sipping your morning coffee. The "beach house" is awesome, with spectacular views, a deck perfect for grilling out, and even a hot tub and a hammock. I would definitely stay there again, and I would recommend it to friends without hesitation.

That being said, there were a few minor imperfections:

-Some of the previous reviews are apparently outdated. I was expecting to be able to feast on a half dozen different kinds of fresh fruit from the trees on the property, but the only fruit in season while we were there was oranges. (Fortunately, they were delicious!) I had also read about Amber the chicken in many of the reviews, and at least one mentioned gathering fresh eggs for breakfast every morning. Sadly, the farm chickens are all gone. There are still plenty of wild chickens roaming about, though, and the roosters crow almost around the clock to make sure you don't forget them!

-The third bedroom in the "big house" is TINY! I think the bedrooms in my camper are bigger. My 17-year-old son didn't mind it at all, but it would be very cramped for most adults and I can't even imagine a couple trying to squeeze in there!

-We battled ants in the kitchen in the "big house" all week. We mentioned them to Jimmy when we first got there, and he said that the house had just been sprayed the week before and ants are just part of island life. We bought some ant traps and we were very careful not to leave food laying around and that definitely helped, but if we left one little crumb on the counter the ants would find it.

-The walk to the Secret Beach is not exactly a stroll. The first 1/3 of the walk is on a narrow trail with vines grabbing your ankles and spider webs in your face. After that the trail opens up into a beautiful garden and the remainder of it is quite pleasant. It took us about 15 minutes to get to the Beach, but about 25 minutes to walk home because it was all uphill. The hike is certainly worthwhile, though... the Secret Beach is gorgeous and it was never crowded at all.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

When we close our eyes we can still hear the sounds of the tropics, paired with ocean surf, gentle breezes and the occasional cock-a-doodle-doo! Junglebee exceeded our expectations... which were already very high! Although we just rented the main house, the cottage is amazing too, and we used the patio there for hot tub, outdoor shower and soaking up sun as the albatross, tropic birds and blue footed boobies soared overhead. We just couldn't get enough of the amazing views! For two couples the main house was perfect but if we return alone we look forward to sampling the cottage too, which would make the perfect romantic get-a-way. Special shout out to Jimmy who was host extraordinaire! Everything about this destination was perfect!!

Awesome - great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Jimmy is an excellent host. We loved the property, its beyond beautiful. The walk down to the beach is amazing, but perhaps a little challenging for the very old and very young, and you will need a car. Its is very well equipped and Jimmy will sort out all of your needs.

Quiet, Private, Exquisite Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the Ocean Suite which was ideally sized for just two of us. The online pictures don't do justice to the decor and the general feel of this beautiful bungalow. The views are breathtaking, the full moon and stars were mind-blowing, the deck and valley overlook are awe-inspiring and best of all, one feels as if there is no one else for miles around. The only sounds we heard were waves, tropical birds, occasional raindrops and the ubiquitous rooster crows. I have been to Kauai many, many times and have never experienced the island from such an exquisite spot.

Aside from the wonderful suite, the rain forest trail down to Secrets Beach was something we enjoyed everyday. We are avid outdoor enthusiasts so we didn't mind the sometimes slippery mud and overgrowth, but potential renters should be aware that it is a 1/2 mile walk down a sometimes steep path to reach the beach. For those less adventurous or traveling with young children there is nearby access by car.

Everything mentioned by other reviewers is absolutely true. The grounds are immaculately maintained, the fruit gathering is like a daily scavenger hunt and "Amber" the chicken made us laugh out loud because she truly believes she is a dog and not a chicken...she actually comes running when you whistle for her.

Honestly, we are conflicted about writing a review because this place is so over-the-top amazing we'd like to have it available just for us anytime we want to return. But in the aloha spirit generated by this very special spot, we want to support Jimmy and Pete so that they may continue to offer this bit of paradise to the rest of us for many years to come.
