In the morning shadow of the legendary Nou Nou Mountain, amidst rainbows and waterfalls in the pastoral Wailua Valley, this private country home offers the feel of old Hawaii. It's central location is perfect for exploring the spectacular garden isle of Kauai.
Within a 10 minute drive you can hit the beach, catch a wave, kayak a tropical river, hike the rainforest, climb a mountain, explore historic sites, water ski, hit a golf ball, bird watch, play tennis, horseback ride, mountain bike... whew! Or just relax and sleep late and awake to a symphony of birds in a lush tropical setting at the Sleeping Giant Cottage.
This one bedroom cottage is spacious and private with three large lanais (porches), and is surrounded by a beautiful lush yard with a wonderful variety of tropical fruits and flowers. It is not connected to any other home and is not part of a compound - for those who seek ultimate privacy and comfort, this is the perfect choice. In fact, we specialize in longer stays.
Here is what our guests are saying:
'We needed rest, relaxation, and privacy - a home away from home in the country, not a hotel room. Sleeping Giant Cottage was perfect. Surrounded by tropical plants, light and relaxing inside, with cool breezes, the smell of rain at night, birds to wake us in the morning and wonderful accommodations. This was our fourth visit to Kauai and our best. We look forward to our return. Thank you.' Dave and Barbara, Glen Ellen, CA 07/2000
'This is a lovely, quiet retreat. A great escape from the maddening crowd!' Steven and Sissel, Berkeley, CA
'What a find! The privacy, the peace and quiet, the bird songs, the cat's bell, the sound of the palm trees in the wind - perfect!'
Diane and Phillip, London, England
