'Cottage in the Forest'

This beautiful little cottage is tucked into a small forest, with a view of the Hanalei Mountains. Where you will awaken each morning to the symphony of sounds and sights of a peaceful rural mountain setting.

Our three and a half Acre Property is located at the end of a cul-de-sac.

Enjoy the endlessly fascinating interaction and play of the resident birds and animals. Chickens, Ducks, Peacocks, Goats, Dogs, Cats and Horses, all co-exist on our property and provide hours of entertainment.

All this is only a five minute drive to beautiful Kalihiwai Bay, where Kalihiwai River enters the ocean. It is our favorite beach, great for boogie boarding and surfing. Also a five minute drive takes you to Anini Beach, a very long beach with a double reef, where you can spend your days: Wind Surfing, Kayaking, Sailing or just enjoying the Ocean environment. Anini also has a large Beach Park.

You will be only 15 minutes from the world famous Hanalei Bay and the Princeville Resort, where you will find the 27 hole Makai Golf Course, and the Princeville Shopping Center. There are two Horse Riding Stables very near by, and the North Shore boasts many hiking trails.

The accommodations are light, airy and beautifully furnished. The claw foot tub in the bathroom is especially charming and looks out a corner picture window on to a private garden.

We love it here and love sharing the unique charm and quiet country atmosphere. Best of all, we are only minutes from some of the best beaches in the world.

Private and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage was a perfect spot for us to get away from the busy resort life, yet close enough for us to enjoy all of our planned activities on Kauai. We loved coming home to the Cottage after a long day of hiking. We only wished we could have stayed longer.

Lovely Cottage in the forest

  • 5 of 5

It is impossible to avoid relaxation during your stay here. We loved the outdoor shower (while star-gazing), soaking tub, and private setting with our regular visitors (peacocks, chickens, roosters- of course, and Milk the goat). A rental car is necessary, and you will want one for all the incredible places there are to explore. You are close the secret beach, queen’s bath, Princeville, Hanalei Bay, with easy access to the Napali Coast. Our stay was incredible, Kauai is truly a special place. Susan was a wonderful host and we would highly recommend!!

Relaxing home away from hone

  • 5 of 5

Cottage in the Forest was a wonderful place to spend the first few days of our vacation. Susan was a delightful host and everything we could have needed was provided. The home was out of the way, yet not too far, and we truly felt at home. The outdoor shower and claw foot bath tub were exceptional and both my husband and I loved them. The lush greenery surrounding the cottage was well maintained and very calming, especially while soaking in the tub. We hope to visit Kauai again and again and would be delighted to stay at Cottage in the Forest again.

Private & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Susan has done a great job making sure this place has everything you will need for an easy stay. The cottage sits on a property shared with a house and guest house, but the walls of tropical growth obscure everything else on the property from view. It was great to know that if we needed anything—tips about the area, help with cottage questions, etc., we just had to make a call or walk next door. Don't like to wake to the cacophony of island fowl (roosters@4am)? The cottage has complimentary earplugs. Clothes get a little wrinkly in your suitcase? No worries, a dryer, the humidity or the iron/ironing board will take care of it. All included. Fast WiFi was a surprise for how remote the cottage is. We tried to unplug on our trip as much as we could, but it sure came in handy in a pinch since cell service was iffy. Lots of great beaches within minutes. Beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel equipment all on tap. The price was fair and it was all ours. Total privacy, from the gated drive to the outdoor shower. The kitchen is decked out if you don't want to eat out for every meal. And I HAVE to mention the lighting. Wow. Every light and fan is fully dimmable & adjustable. You can set the cottage up for whatever mood strikes you. We loved it so much, we took some notes for when we build our own cottage some day.

Susan's cottage is exactly as described. It is a quant, quiet location that provides privacy and comfort for guests. The unit was clean and nicely decorated during our visit and we would happily stay here again. Mahalo, Andrew & Jessica

Awesome Experience at the Cottage in the Jungle!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great experience at Susan's "cottage in the jungle" for our honeymoon. Its location is quite convenient for North Shore activity (being close to Princeville and not too far from Hanalei).

The cottage itself is very well decorated and gives an authentic Hawaiian experience. The grounds were very nice with all the different animals about (Milk the goat, peacocks, dogs, chickens, tropical birds, geckos, etc). The cottage doesn't have A/C which was totally fine because there are plenty of fans provided and it never got very hot inside with the breeze rolling through. The bed is very comfortable and we slept great every night! The outdoor shower was cool too! There is also snorkeling gear and 2 boogie boards we were able to take advantage of and use.

Susan was very accommodating on our last day when we were traveling home and helped us out in a big way. She made us feel very welcome and was there to answer any questions we had. Overall I would recommend staying at her property on the North Shore!
