Hanalei Moon Beach Cottage on the bay.

Beachfront Holiday home in Hanalei with kitchen
Our Beachfront Home here in the middle of Hanalei Bay can be yours!

Hanalei Moon Beach Cottage is named after the famous Hawaiian song "Hanalei Moon," which extols the extreme beauty and romance of the Hanalei Valley under the tropical night sky.

The cottage is located on the quiet end of town on Weke Road, right on the beach, on 1/3 acre within walking distance of all the restaurants, shops and galleries. Waterfalls are the back drop for our little beach house. Standard occupancy is 2.

There is complete cozy kitchen where you can whip up fabulous food from the Hanalei Fish Market, the Farmer's Market, or just make snacks to go and enjoy some of the great local restaurants.

King size bed and lights for reading at night. It has a separate bathroom entrance. We have a little library for your use and quite a few great books on Kauai and Hawaii in general.

A twin size bed is hidden is a hassock in the central room & can accommodate another guest. (Listed rate is for the standard occupancy of 2, but home can accommodate up to 3. Extra guest fee beyond two is $20/night + tax per person. This fee is collected after booking. Only 1 extra guest is allowed.)

We have a little telescope in the living room so that you can better see boats, whales, and dolphins ply the Bay by day and enjoy the moon and stars at night. If you're lucky, you may see a moon bow, something I have only seen in Hanalei. It will happen on a night when there are stars, moon and clouds together. If the clouds are sailing by on the gentle trade winds and shedding some tears, the rain will be illuminated by the moon shining from the cloudless part of the sky. Talk about breathtaking! Depending on the brightness of the moon, you may discern the colors of the rainbow.

Snorkeling, swimming, diving, paddling, hiking, golfing and a health club are all as close as your front yard, to as far as a 10 minute drive away. Walk across your front yard and look to the left; you're likely to see no one for a mile. Look to the right and you'll probably see surfers, volley ball players and beach-goers, with the Hanalei Pier at the far end of the Bay in the background.

Hanalei Beach Moon Cottage
Perfect little cottage for the two of us, right on the beach at Hanalei Bay. Rain, sun, surf, sand---and rainbows...

5/5 Excellent

LOVE this place....
We stayed two weeks, and would have moved in if Suzanne would let us! Paradise.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Location
Perfect place, footsteps away from Hanalei Beach and a short walk into town. The cottage is very comfortable and breezy throughout the day.

5/5 Excellent

Try Slow
We tried slow and loved it! From the moment we arrived in Hanalei everything felt right. And the cottage was just perfect for us. The views were awesome and so was the beach, which was a short stroll across the lawn. Also loved the outdoor shower, covered lanai and well-appointed kitchen. We can’t wait to go back.

5/5 Excellent

Moon Cottage stay 5/10/2021
Classic Hanalei Bay stay. Right now with the road landslide, once you've arrived, you're not likely to go very far! We really liked staying at this end of the beach. A little off the beaten beach track. The cottage was perfectly good for 2 people. Nothing fancy- a beach cottage! All the needed amenities. And really wonderful property space with only a large open lawn between the cottage and the bay!
