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

Sports & Adventure Activities
This place was perfect for my wife and I to get away from the crowds and hotels. The location felt secluded, yet near by everything we needed and a great spot to start our daily excursions. The cottage has everything you need and we loved the decks and lanai for sitting out and enjoying the lush surroundings. Leaving in the morning and returning at the end of the day takes you by scenic waterfalls, overlooks, river, forest and mountains. Richard was great to work with and a great communicator. We would definitely return here to stay.
We had a wonderful stay here. The cottage is clean and very private feeling, yet it's just a quick drive to all the action. We loved hanging out on the screened lanai overlooking the back garden. An added bonus we enjoyed was driving by the beautiful Opaekaa Falls on our way to and from the cottage.
In thru ur nose.....out thru your mouth...don't 4get to breath It's time to RELAX !
We had everything we needed. It was clean, comfortable and cozy. A very quite place to unwind and relax. The owner is amazing. Very good at communication and helpful in answering any questions we had. We hope to return.
The cottage was a great place to stay to explore the island.
Our Awesome Stay
Sleeping Giant Cottage is in a quiet neighborhood and off the beaten path. We stayed for 21 days and our daughter, her husband and our 22 month old granddaughter joined us for 11 days. It is an ideal location to travel to the north or south end of the island. Sleeping Giant East Trail is within walking distance and the Moalepe Trail is a short drive away. We enjoyed all the farmer's markers with all the fresh fruits and vegetables. :) Many are not too far away. We loved sitting on the screened lanai and drinking coffee/tea looking out at all the greenery. The king size bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. The washer and dryer with the soap provided was a nice touch. There were plenty of towels and beach towels for all of us. We would book this place again in a heartbeat. Pat and Gary G.
So many verandas for that morning coffee!
Living in a quiet garden setting for a week with all you need close at hand is a great way to kick off a holiday. Quick response to any issues too! Coolers and all you need for your beach days are waiting for you!
