About the property

Cosy, Romantic Stand alone Cottage With Jungle And Mountain Views

This very special treehouse style cottage will have you falling in love with a side of Hawaii rarely seen anymore. Although modern and beautifully arcitectured it offers the jungle up to you. Every window looks out to tropical lush beauty. A wrap around screened lanai overlooking valley and mountains provides the perfect setting for romantic evening dining or morning coffee and jungle song bird musing. The large kitchenette is well supplied with stay at home cooking in mind. All the most amazing north shore beaches as well as the famous Kalalau Trail are mere minutes away and if you want to feel a little adventurous you can walk to the river for an evening dip in the jungle swimming hole. Take your camera because the river birds are beautiful. Best of all is the big comfy king bed and the star gazing skylight above you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Dawn, I couldn't find a spot on the VRBO link to enter a review so I shall just enter here.



We really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Turtle. We arrived late at night after a long travel day and fell into the WONDERFUL bed without knowing what to expect in the morning. It rained all night--that glorious jungle rain. Imagine our delight to wake up to bird calls and the spectacular view of the mountains embellished with our first of many rainbows. We appreciated the zen-like simplicity of the Sea Turtle's hexagonal structure, the peace of the jungle, the joy of showering under the waterfall showerhead while viewing the mountains and jungle wilds, and the glory of breakfast on the lanai.



Although I would have appreciated some standard amenities like towel bars to hang up wet towels, a robe hook, and an attached soap dish in the shower, we had everything we needed. The location was beautiful and convenient to Hanalei, ( 10-15 minutes by car) and the west end beaches,. The short jaunt to the Bay Colony Coffee shop was also a treat.



Thank you for creating such a delightful retreat for us.

Beautiful location on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

The sea turtle cottage was a great place to stay. Your own little jungle cottage with a comfortable ocean breeze ever present. Matty was great to deal with and helped me to feel at home and get me anything I needed. If you want a secluded little getaway on the beautiful far north side of Kauai, this is your place!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our honeymoon stay was fantastic. The house had everything we needed for the most part, including beach chairs, snorkeling gear, and boogie boards. Ask Matty to take you surfing! You won’t regret it. This girl for one loves an outdoor shower, and this one did not disappoint. And, go to Sushi Girl down the street. Aloha!

Waking up to the rain was AMAZING

  • 4 of 5

A nice little get away. A bit grimy in some places and you definitely need to bring your bug spray but all amenities are included (though slightly limited) and the outdoor shower is awesome! We stayed a week here and that was about my limit for the small space. Overall nice stay, though.

Unique, charming and comfortable cottage that gave us a "close to nature" experience.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! We truly felt like we were in a secluded, private jungle location. The view in the photos is mostly obscured now by the growth of all the foliage surrounding the Sea Turtle Cottage, but it doesn't deter the wonderful experience. Loved the outdoor bathroom/shower! We were treated very well by Matty, the caretaker, who answered questions and took care of any needs relative to the cottage. We had a lot of rain during our visit and we could sit on the balcony and enjoy the experience. Looking forward to the next visit!

Look No Further...

  • 5 of 5

If you want a beautiful, quiet, comfortable little house to yourself just down the road from Kauai's best beaches and the town of Hanalei, look no further. Dawn has carefully created a lovely little spot, comfortably appointed with attention to detail. You hear the river and the birds (and only the occasional, far away rooster). There is enough kitchen to feed yourself as much as you'd like, and you'll become convinced that a private outdoor shower is the only way to live. The St. Regis folks on the hill can eat their hearts out, because you'll have the real deal in Hawaii at Sea Turtle Cottage.

Jungle Hut

  • 4 of 5

The views from the property are just as shown in the photos. It is a stand alone cottage but the main house is located just a few steps away. However, it is quite private. The outdoor bathroom is quite spacious although the lighting is a bit dim and the hot water in the shower is very difficult to control - it goes from steaming hot to cold. The small table on the veranda is nice; we often ate dinner there and were not bothered by any pests at all. The kitchen inside consists only of a two burner hot plate and a microwave. However, outside, near the entrance is a full stove and a BBQ. We found the space inside to be a bit small for two people as there is no place to store/put luggage and the "closet" is very small. It is a quaint place and we enjoyed its peacefulness.

Owner's Response: This was a very sweet couple who were a pleasure to host. We had been having difficulties with a new hot water system that functions on demand. It has been changed over to a better system and it's working really well now. I so apologize for the inconvience this couple went through. I'm glad they did enjoy themselves insite of this issue.
