About the property

Secluded & Totally Remodeled, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private dipping pool

Have you dreamed of spending your honeymoon on the beautiful 'Garden Island' of Kauai? Maybe you are planning a romantic getaway for two . . . or a peaceful visit to a tropical island away from your hectic schedule at home . . . . If you would like your vacation home to be in a secluded oasis of lush, tropical foliage yet close to beaches and restaurants, this cottage, Pali Uli 8 "The Gem" could be your ideal choice.

It is amazing how close you are to many activities, gorgeous north shore beaches, and a nice variety of restaurants and cafes. And yet, it will seem like you are on your own private island while you are at 'home' enjoying the serenity and peacefulness of this newly and completely renovated cottage with your private 'dipping' pool.

When you choose to venture away from your 'shangri-la,' you will find a host of modern amenities like a grocery store, post office, shops and galleries, as well as lots of activities including tours of beautiful botanical gardens, horseback riding, zip line rides, river and ocean kayaking, boat tours, snorkeling and swimming, surfing and windsurfing, fishing, golfing and, of course, sightseeing the natural wonders of Kauai, to name just a few.

You will also want to be sure to stop by at least one of the Sunshine or farmer's Markets for fresh, local vegetables and fruit to include in meals that you choose to prepare at home. There is an electric grill as well as the fully equipped kitchen where you can create your culinary masterpieces.

This charming cottage is multi-level with the loft-style master suite upstairs complete with its own bathroom. The second bedroom is on a different level a few steps down and also has its own bathroom. The lower level, a few steps down from the second bedroom, is the main living area with the kitchen, dining nook and living room. Sliding glass doors in the living room lead to your private lanai and dipping pool. In case you return from the beach and want to rinse off before going inside, there is an outdoor shower with hot water for your convenience.

If you have had dreams about your ideal tropical hideaway, they have likely been of a place just like Pali Uli 8, a true 'Gem' in paradise.

Absolutely amazing - we never want to stay anywhere else in Kauai again!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so perfect - private, comfortable, well-equipped - words can't describe how much we enjoyed it. Listening to the rain every night and the birds every morning was very peaceful. Although Kauai has tons of roosters, we didn't see any right around the house. This place is seriously fantastic! If the owners were to sell it, I would buy it. I'm not kidding or exaggerating.

Clean and private with a secluded feel.

#8 is the last cottage in the group and it faces the forest with a distant view of the Pacific. It really makes you feel as if you off by yourself. Everything you need for a beach getaway was provided including chairs and snorkeling gear.

Very Private! Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Best villa in the complex. Located at the back and managed by Kauai Vacation Rentals. The property management company was easy to work with.

We stayed at the villa for two weeks while it was pretty stormy. We only had two days of sun which no fault of anyone made the pool practically useless. The two sunny days, the pool was almost unbearably cold, but we wouldn't have traded this spot for any other one on the island.

We had some issues with construction on the property that the property management was unaware was occurring, but they helped stop it once we notified them. Because of the construction we had a few days we couldn't access the bbq and side areas. So if anything is going on reach out to property management, I'm sure they'll help you too!

Because this property is at the end of the complex, lending to its privacy, it backs up to the tropical forest, which brings all kinds of critters. The birds and chickens were beautiful and we enjoyed waking up to their singing. The bugs and spiders.... More than a little scary. A few of the spiders in the house were pretty large.... Like hairless tarantulas. Okay it's a little exaggerated, but just be prepared. If you're deathly afraid of spiders, bring some bug spray. These are big suckers.

Onto the inside! The layout internally was great. The linens were fresh and the house was very clean. The couch was comfy. The water pressure was great and I loved having the laundry machines accessible too.

I'd definitely recommend regardless of the spiders.

Loved the privacy of this tropical cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We have been curious about Paliuli Cottages ever since we discovered them over 15 years ago!

Finally, we decided to stay there during our last trip to Kauai.

This cottage is excellent! It definitely has the best location of the 8 cottages on the property.

All the way in the back and very secluded with nothing but tropical foliage behind the cottage.

The location is so private that there are no window coverings on the back of the cottage at all.

The interior of the cottage was very clean and nicely updated. Lots of windows and all you see is lush green tropics out of every window!

The cottage is very open and airy which makes it feel much larger than it actually is.

There were also ceiling fans in every room as well as a portable fan. We have rented many houses/condos in Hawaii and it always surprises me that most don't have any fans at all.

The plunge pool in the back was nice and clean as well. Unfortunately the water was too cold during this time of year to get any use out of the pool. I'm sure it would be better during the warmer months.

The cottage I definitely rate 5 stars!

The management company I would rate 3 stars.

The listing is not entirely accurate which was kind of a bummer....... first off there is no DVD player in the unit. The listing shows DVD player which is not the case. We had planned to watch a movie in the evening but were not able to.

Also there is no hot water for the outside shower like it states in the listing. It is connected to a garden hose... so the water is not hot!!

A couple other things missing were a rice cooker!? Every rental in Hawaii has a rice cooker!!

Also the coffee maker is tiny....... not full size. Not sure why they have a small 2 cup coffee maker in this place!?!

Even with all the missing items, I will still rate this place 5 stars just because of the awesome privacy and the clean, updated interior of the cottage.
