Jungle Cottage

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Olohena Rd, Kapaa, HI 96746, United States

The Space

Stay in the very heart of Kauai. Our family owned upcountry cottage offers cool, balmy breezes, tropical songbirds, and the sweet fragrances of lush surrounding gardens. There is also an elegant full kitchen, jacuzzi whirlpool tub to enjoy relaxing baths looking right into the tropical forest, beautiful slate floors and cedarwood trim throughout. You’ll know you’re in Hawaii when you take your shower outside in nature amidst the gardens, warm air and beautiful views. Washer and dryer unit for your convenience.

We have a wonderful garden with fresh herbs and we like to share. Ask us to show you where all the herbs are planted so that you can help yourself.

You can walk out the door to a trailhead that takes you to Kauai’s healing green interior. This two hour hike with its verdant vistas ends at the Keahua Forestry Arboretum - a park with acres of both native and introduced tree species including groves of painted gum trees, scattered ohia lehua and dense tangles of hibiscus. Another beautiful walk just three minutes drive from your door is up the Sleeping Giant. This hike takes you around and up the Giant and from the top are breathtaking views of Kauai’s towns, inland jungles, mountains and surrounding ocean.

The cottage location is central to the island - whether you go north to Hanalei or south to Poipu. You can drive 8 to 10 minutes down the road to treat yourself to a delicious breakfast in Kapaa, enjoy pristine white sandy beaches, or spend a day of shopping at the Coconut Plantation Shopping Center. Then, leave the crowds behind and return to your love nest, out in the rolling hills behind Kapaa.

Perfect for honeymoons, anniversaries, vow renewals, or any special occasions for two, this magical, romantic getaway will entice you and your loved one to honeymoon - no matter how long you have been in love!

  • A perfect getaway in Kauai! This is a very special place, built with immense love and care. It will have everything you need and more. We stayed here the week of our wedding, and could to have been happier. We loved the indoor/outdoor bathtub and the enclosed deck. Made the Mosquitos unnoticeable. Thank you Charlotte for the amazing experience.

  • Perfect stay for a relaxing & adventurous vacation. The cottage is nestled back away from town and provides nice seclusion, but at the same time is completely modern and immaculately maintained. Soaking in an open-air whirlpool bath after a day of kayaking (kayaks available with the rental!) and hiking is about as good as it gets.

  • Charming/romantic cottage. Loved the outdoor shower and indoor/outdoor jacuzzi. Hosts kindly held our bags for three days before our arrival. Highly recommended!

  • This is an awesome place to stay in Kauai. It's a great central location which makes it easy to access the north and south shores of the island. It is a very serene setting where you can enjoy the sounds of morning birds, gentle rain showers, and cool breezes blowing through the tropical foliage giving it a wonderful ambience. The kitchen had everything we needed and the outdoor tub and showers were really a great touch. The cottage is build with fine Japanese style craftsmanship which gives the house a lot of natural light and an open, airy feeling. There is also a garden with delicious fresh greens and herbs.

    Charlotte was very fast to responding to any questions we had. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful, romantic getaway that is off the beaten path but only a short drive to the main points of interest in Kauai.

  • This is a super romantic little cottage and we had a lovely time using it as our base for exploring Kauai. The outdoor shower and jacuzzi tub are so relaxing and the kitchen comes stocked with everything you could possibly need. We took advantage of it to cook a few meals while there. You definitely feel like you are in your own private little getaway and the cottage has beach towels, beach mats, really everything you could need for an awesome Kauai vacation.

    A couple helpful tips: if you are a light sleeper, I recommend packing earplugs because there are definitely wild chickens in the area who make a bit of noise. Also, the road from Kapa'a to the cottage is only 10 minutes but its very windy and it takes longer at night. Be careful how much you drink in town and be aware of how tired you are before driving the road at night.

  • Awesome place. We really really enjoyed our time at the cottage. It was a perfect location. We highly recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Kapaa.

  • We loved it here. Jungle cottage is right! The entire back side of the cottage has huge beautiful windows looking out in to the jungle. The pictures just can't do the views justice. Every morning there was just a perfect way to start out a vacation day. So peaceful and tranquil; away from the tourist areas and traffic but still close enough to get to the beach or Kapaa in a few minutes. Nice and centrally located for the whole island. Very nice furnishings, decor, and great amenities. The jacuzzi tub with the view of the screened in deck and outside shower are heavenly. The deck itself is just so meditative and peaceful. We will usually pay a lot for peaceful beautiful lodging and this was really a bargain. The area is super-nice, and the road to the cottage itself is a nice drive. Would definitely recommend to anybody.

  • Love the location and vibe. I would definitely suggest the Jungle Cottage to get away from the crowds and resorts. Thanks Charlotte!

  • Absolutely enjoyable place if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle.
    The hot tub and outdoor shower are fabulous.
    The first night was a little difficult because we weren't used to the QUIET surroundings , but the next night was just fine.
    Hopefully, we'll get to stay here again soon.

  • The jungle cottage was exactly as depicted in the listing. Just a short drive into the hills above Kapa'a, the secluded and private cottage gives the feeling of being deep in the jungle. The creative layout of the space was fun and interesting. We particularly loved the screened-in patio, which made it comfortable to enjoy the sounds of the island at night without the accompanying whine of mosquitoes in our ears. I would definitely recommend the jungle cottage to any couple looking for a quieter alternative to the beachside tourist magnets in Lihue and Poipu!
