  • During our trip to Kauai my wife and I stayed at the Jungalow for five nights - we wish it was many more! Mark and Christine were very helpful hosts upon our arrival, providing tips for beaches, hiking, shopping and dining - the local area had much to offer! The Kalalau Trail head at Ke'e Beach is only 2.5 miles from The Jungalow, which was a highlight. Tunnels Beach and Heana Beach Park are only about 1-mile away as well. The Jungalow has plenty of leftover snorkel gear and coolers, etc, for a great day at the beach!

    Hanalei Bay is only about a 10-15 minute drive, depending on the one-way bridges traffic. Hanalei has a lot of fantastic dining and shopping options - Bar Acuda restaurant deserves a specific shout-out for it's delicious tapas (pupus) options! The Jungalow is also located across the street from the Hanalei Colony Resort (which is not very "resorty," thankfully) which has a coffee shop and a Mediterranean restaurant which was also fantastic. A new to-go sushi shop, Sushi Girl, offered fresh ahi rolls - just a five minutes drive from the Jungalow.

    A boat tour along the Na Pali Coast is a MUST and we had a fantastic time with Na Pali Catamaran right in Hanalei Bay - mention guides Chris and Sean if you can!

    The Jungalow itself is perfect for your Kauai adventure - the room is sufficient for a couple and stayed relatively cool at night with the overhead fan. There's enough room to spread-out and the WiFi was helpful for excursion planning. Though we didn't do much cooking in the kitchen, the private fridge was very helpful to store milk for cereal as well as our assorted local fruit. The outdoor shower felt great after a long-day in the sun!

    Overall, our trip was fantastic with big thanks to The Jungalow. We already can't wait for our return to Kauai, and when we do we will certainly stay at the Jungalow again.

  • This is the single greatest place to stay in the world. Sandy wasn't around, but her co-hosts Mark and Christine were incredibly friendly and kind to us. Kind as in letting us use their kitchen and ingredients to cook our dinner. Kind as in chatting with us about the island and sharing stories and secret spots. Kind as in being around when we needed them and not being around when we wanted to be on our own.
    The Jungalow (email hidden) to stay - definitely a MUST for couples who want to enjoy the freedom of living the chilled life in Hawaii (and also being close to the Kalalau Trail - it's a 5min drive to the trailhead!)

  • Just got back from an awesome stay at Jungalow. Had four nights there after a muddy Kalalau Trail hike! They even washed our clothes! Mark was a great help with local knowledge including all the best spots for snrokeling and seeing turtles!

  • The Jungalow was perfect for our needs. It is exactly as the description reads. We loved the rain on the roof and enjoying the hot tub after a full day of hiking and snorkeling. The check in was easy and thorough and there are plenty of nice island perks - extra sunscreen, snorkeling gear, coolers, chairs. We will be back!

  • A quaint little house in the middle of a garden on Kauai, this little hut had everything we needed. The owners let us use snorkel gear left behind by other guests, and there was a coffee shop just across the street on the beach to watch the sunrise. We very much enjoyed our stay, especially the rain on the roof in the middle of the night.

  • We loved our stay in the Jungalow. The buildings and surrounding grounds were well kept and homey. We enjoyed our visits with Mark, the surfboard bar, the shower and hot tub to mention a few. The only thing was the proximity to the road. In the early morning the cars of folks heading to get an early start on the Kalalau trail would wake us. I am an early riser anyway but my partner would get out his ear plugs and try to fall back off for awhile more. Thanks for the wonderful space to enjoy the Hanalei area of Kauai!

  • The Jungalow cottage had all the charm advertised here. For a single traveler it was plenty of space. I do feel that a micro wave would have been very useful in the kitchen, but I made do with the coffee machine and toaster.
    The hosts acted quickly when a problem came up, were available for questions, and made alternate arrangements immediately.

    Really enjoyed my stey here and would come back to it.

  • Amazing,Amazing,Amazing! Charming,rustic, and very cozy. Excellent location across from the beach. We slept better in the Jungalow better than we sleep at home! True story:) We very much enjoyed cooking our meals and enjoying drinks in the surfboard bar area and enjoying the company of the AMAZING hosts, Sandy, Mark, and Christine. You really couldn’t ask for a better trio of hosts. My husband (then boyfriend) and I were set to marry in the stuffy courthouse in Lihue. An hour or two before our planned courthouse nuptials, Sandy offered to marry us on the beach across from the Jungalow. We most definitely took her up on the amazing offer and couldn’t be happier that Sandy played a HUGE part of making our wedding day absolutely perfect. We can’t thank the hosts enough for making our stay extremely comfortable and the most memorable. We are looking forward to spending future anniversaries at the Jungalow.

  • This cozy spot is the very best value in the area. Thanks for the great barbeque with the side burner. This plus the small kitchen/bath sink and outdoor shower made the stay very comfortable Great location to wait out the rains. Hosts were accommodating and flexible. Wish we were still there. Our second place just doesn't have that kick back island feel. Minor cooking accommodations at this end of the island is almost a necessity. if you are staying more than a night and want a giant step up from camping, the Jungalow is perfection.

About
I love to dance, read, and walk the beach with our dogs. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities. Thailand is fascinating and New Zealand beautiful. Adored Paris. Trying to decide on my next exotic destination. Not exotic, but very nice, Traverse City Michigan, this summer to visit family, with a few days at Mackinac Island--another of my favorite places. But my very favorite is right here where I live. In 1991 I moved to Kauai and became a real estate broker and property manager, at the same time my friend Mark and I managed a couple B&Bs, and we now own Kalalau B&B. Last year he married Christine who moved here from Germany. We share running the B&B, and we all love living in Kauai, and especially on the North Shore. Mark is an artist and chef, and Christine is a retired actuary, who is artistic, musical, and many talented. She and I perform hula whenever we get a chance, quite often at Tahiti Nui on Wednesdays in Hanalei. When you stay with us we can tell you more, but we'd rather hear about you. I recently became licensed to perform weddings in the state of Hawaii, when it became imminent that gay marriages would be made legal. I am perhaps the only avowed atheist wedding officiant on Kaua`i. More than you wanted to know about me. I attended University of Michigan after graduating and soon after that went to work for the Teamsters Union in Detroit, and from there to the legal firm that handled most of the large trucking companies. After a couple years, I moved to New York City where I was hired as executive assistant to the president and executive vice president of two huge corporations in their Wall Street Offices. From there I went to work for Norman Mailer and worked for him for many years as research assistant, confidante, copy editor, and secretary (never wife or lover) both in New York City and Provincetown, MA. Spent a year or so as a hippie traveling around the country with a flower in my hair. Then I married and moved to Stowe, Vermont, for nearly 20 years, where I skied and sailed for recreation. Then here.
