Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms -2 queens and 3rd has 2 twins, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come to the most beautiful beachfront vacation villa in Hawaii! Secret Cove Villa is located in an exclusive area of large estates owned by billionaires. It is a very private 3 BR, 3 BA estate located on a blissful, blue lagoon in the most romantic of settings. This three-quarter acre estate has over 60 coconut trees on it with beautiful landscaping to enhance your privacy. It is less than 50 feet to the spectacular, seldom used, secluded, crescent sand beach of Aliomanu Bay. Aliomanu Beach is known as 'the gateway' to the North Shore. The beachfront lagoon is protected by surrounding reef, making it ideal for water sports (snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, etc.). These waters are safe for youngsters as they have keiki tide pools near shore.

For family reunions and small weddings Secret Cove Villa can also be linked with the enchanting Secret Cove Cottage, which is on the right side of the estate. In this way you can be near your guests, but have comforting privacy on those special occasions.

From the bedrooms, living room and kitchen you have stunning views of the beach and ocean. The front lanai runs the length of the home so you have sweeping wide ocean views in both directions. Be sure to enjoy the comfortable deck lounge chairs and dining table set.

The incredible sunrises, sunsets and moonrises that you can see from the home are mesmerizing. Just imagine yourself sitting on the lanai with a morning cup of coffee or an evening drink listening to the ocean sounds and the splash of colors in the skies.

Inside the villa there are high-end upgrades throughout. The home is tastefully furnished for your every comfort and is decorated with Asian accents. Granite counter tops are used throughout the kitchen and bathrooms. The gourmet kitchen has upgraded appliances and is easy to cook in with all the essential amenities. If you prefer to grill, there is a very nice barbecue to grill at.

Two of the bedrooms are master suites located at each end of the house. The third bedroom has two new twin beds with pillow tops on them. Each bedroom has its own luxurious bathroom. In the living room there is a large-screen television, DVD player, as well as WI-FI for your enjoyment. From each room you can see the ocean and from each bedroom you can walk out onto the lanai. The vaulted ceilings and lighting system afford a spacious and welcoming atmosphere that envelops you as you step into this inviting home.

Secret Cove Villa also provides 2 kayaks for guest use, 2 boogie boards, beach mats, beach towels and a cooler for your excursions. You will be welcomed by a special greeting basket of fruit and chocolates to let you know just how special this vacation will be for you. If you are looking for a premium ocean location, there simply is no more spectacular setting for your perfect romantic vacation in all of Kauai than Secret Cove Villa. Period!

Absolutely amazing - Spectacular Location and Views at a very reasonable price !

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as we expected from what is listed on the website. This was by far the best vacation I have ever experienced - the location and views were everything I had ever imagined for a trip to such a beautiful island. This was my wife's and my second trip to Kauai, and the island was just as spectacular as we remembered, but this property was the highlight of our stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone that is considering a stay here. We did have a couple of issues during our stay, but we contacted Eunice and she took care of both our issues while we were away, prior to us returning. My son, his friend and I did a little exploring on the beach just to the north of the rental and we did come across the monk seal. Overall everyone had a great time and we would certainly enjoy the opportunity to be able to return here sometime in the future.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house in dark the but were still able to find it. Thankfully flood lights turn on automatically when you walk towards the front door making it easier to see/open the key box. We could hear the ocean but could not see the glorious view until the next morning. Every room in the house has this glorious view. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed to cook. We saw maybe 5 people all day long on the beach. There seemed to be plenty of beach stuff but can't attest to its condition because we just used the umbrella. It was great. Enough beach towels for our family of 4 and more than enough room. My husband found the master bedroom bed (the one by itself) too soft for his liking to sleep on so he slept on one of the twin beds but I had no problems with it. Just personal preference. This house is very ornately decorated, lots of breakable stuff. With a 3 yr old this was a little nerve-wracking, though we made it through the week without anything getting broke. There is a giant life size vase right by the door, if you have small kids I would recommend asking if this could be moved to a less traveled area. The biggest problem we had was when setting the alarm, it would state that the sliding glass door was open, when it was not. Just a little fiddling with it made it clear, so basically we had no real problems.

Would recommend this place in a heartbeat!

The location of this home is fantastic but needs work!

  • 4 of 5

We could not have been happier with the central location of this home to access the island sites. Even better, it is in an area where many locals live and did I mention right on a small cove with a nice sandy beach. Pictures of this were accurate and we encountered no more than 10 people a day sharing our beach. As mentioned in previous posts very good snorkeling is right off your beach. Do not waste your time hauling gear to other sites in winter. If you want clearer water or a healthier reef take a boat offshore. As for the house, the layout was perfect for us parents and our two adult children and spouses. No grandkids yet for us but there were ample supplies for children. We spent every morning and many evenings on the deck running the full length of the house marveling at the amazing view-we never got tired of it! The only reason that I am giving this house 4 stars is that it is beginning to show significant wear. There are areas on the deck flooring that are rotting out and downright dangerous. We were greated on arrival with a note from the housekeeper requesting the handiman come to work on the only main access sliding door the next morning. Having experienced construction we knew this was no small job and declined not wanting to interrupt the vacation we had planned for the last year. Needless to say, we struggled with that door for the entire week but did meet the handiman on our departure so hopefully is now fixed for future renters. The refrigerator needs to be replaced! With a large numbers of groceries in it the temperature was barely able to keep cool. The beautiful wood flooring has areas of water damage and rot. I mention all of this in hopes that the owners will close this property for a short period and invest the money to maintain it for future use. We very much would love to return here if our travels ever take us again to Kauai. This home truly is a gem!

Owner's Response: I was shocked by this reviewer who claimed that "There are areas on the deck flooring that are rotting out and downright dangerous." Therefore, I had our property manager and window cleaner, who frequent the deck on a weekly basis in their maintenance and cleaning of the home, to comment on this renter's statement. They both stated that there are no rotting areas whatsoever and the deck is certainly not dangerous. The deck was replaced not that many years ago with Ipe wood that is so strong and tough carpenters had to use diamond tipped blades to saw the wood! For it to rot this soon is unlikely. The refrigerator is a high end commercial grade refrigerator. There have been no previous complaints about it before her or since her departure. It may be the guest overloaded the refrigerator and the door may unknowingly not have shut tightly. An inspection of the refrigerator by staff revealed it to be in fine working order. Too bad she didn't allow the handyman in when he requested. It didn't really take that long for him to fix since he already had diagnosed the problem and had the parts ready to install. She was wrong about the affected slider being the "only main access door." There are three other sliding access doors to the ocean side deck. The home has a beautiful Eucalytus floor original to the home when it was built. There are a couple of very small areas where there is minor rot but they have been carefully repaired. We are trying to preserve this floor as long as possible because this beautiful rare wood is not available any longer for flooring. We strive diligently in trying to immediately take care of any problems whatsoever that may arise in order to maintain our 5 star ratings.

All By Yourself In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

March 4, 2017

My wife and I just returned home after spending 30 wonderful nights at this lovely ocean front home. Each morning, upon awaking, we would look out from the bed and see nothing but the majestic Pacific Ocean. The view reminded me on sleeping on my own private sailing boat, but without the sea sickness. The whole side of the house, that faces the ocean, is nothing but full large sized windows, so almost anywhere in the house, you’re looking at a drop-dead stunning vista. The appointments and decorations inside the home are very tastefully done. The pleasing landscaping and vegetation are lush, and reminds you of jungle living. This is a great house at an extraordinary price - a real value. We tried to get 30 consecutive nights in February 2018, but the owner, Jonathan, advised us he had other rentals for that period. The house has pretty much everything you need for inside and outdoors. Lots of beach “play stuff". When considering spending $350 a night at a franchise hotel, or this charming home, staying here is a no brainer. The whole time we were there, we hardly saw anyone on the beach. It was like having your own private beach. And the other houses nearby were seldom occupied. Anahola is almost half way between Kapaa and Princeville, so you are centrally located in the very desirable north/east section of Kauai. The northern part of Kauai is lush and picturesque, whereas the southern part of the island gets less rain and is not as green as up north. The house was very clean and orderly when we got there. If possible get to the house in day light hours, since finding it is more difficult after dark. We always felt very safe.

Finally, this delightful property is a tremendous value considering what you get, for what you pay. Just “Zillow” the address and you’ll see the area is loaded with $2,000,000 dollar plus properties. But because of the great value, this house gets lots of use. Everything in the house is of good quality, but is somewhat worn, but still very nice. Stay here and you’ll have memories for a life time.

Location is the reason for 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

The decision to stay in this home was a good one. The location is incredible. The views from the windows and deck are what you imagine when you think about staying in Hawaii. Even though there are other homes along this beach we rarely ever saw anyone else. At most we would see one or two people on the beach at any given time. The location on the island is great. It is just about 10 minutes past Kapaa. It is about 20 minutes from Princeville. Hanalei is another 15 or so past that. Getting to Poipu is about a 45 min ride but well worth it. The home is very well equipped. I think I counted 4 beach chairs, 6 to 7 beach towels, 2 kayaks, 6 or so pairs of water shoes (very much needed), at least 8 or 9 masks and snorkels, 3 to 4 pairs of fins, noodles, floats, beach toys for kids, fishing pole, sunsreen and much more. There is a shower as you come up from the beach. The beach is a little rocky as stated in other reviews but there is plenty of sand for your lounging pleasure. There is a little area to the left as you come down the path that looks like a little Queen's Bath. The house is very livable. It certainly has a little age and wear and tear on it but that in no way affected our stay. Nice big frig but no ice maker just ice trays. The kitchen is well equipped. It has Keurig, blender, toaster, micro, etc. Plenty of plates, bowls (large and small), and utensils. The is a master bedroom on each end of the house. Both have queen beds. There is a bedroom with twins that has a private bath as well. The window between the mirrors over the vanity is a nice touch. The fairly new washer/dryer got plenty of use. When we first looked at this home online it looked like one of those that had the sliding doors that opened up all the way across the living area. It is not. There is a set of sliding doors off the kitchen and master bedrooms. The rest of the glass on the living area is fixed. Each room had its own AC unit. They were a little noisy but did the job. The temperature when we were there was around 85 degrees during the day. TV in the living room had a little picture issue but we didn't watch that much TV. There is patio table with 4 chairs, 2 lounge chairs, and a gas grill on the deck. Be sure and check out Princeville Ranch Adventures for Zip Lining. Awesome time. Monicos Taqueria in Kapaa was great. Got groceries at Foodland on the way in. Be sure and get some Poke. Go see Spouting Horn. General Store 5 minutes from house to the left. Enjoy the beauty!!!!
