Gilligan's-secluded fully air-conditioned Cottage Near Gorgeous Beach--TVNC-4189

Adults-only cottage in Kilauea
And not only secluded, but only a four and a half minute walk to a gorgeous and private beach! (I know VRBO wrote “six minute walk” in the title, but I measured it once!). Gilligan's Beach Cottage is not like one of the houses packed into town--it is about 15 minutes east of Princeville in rural Kauai in an unspoiled, natural valley called Moloa'a. If you check it out on a map, you will find Moloa'a Bay in the upper right hand corner. Since there is very limited public parking near the beach, this beach is relatively undiscovered by tourists. Hollywood, however, did discover this idylic location in the 1960's and filmed the entire pilot episode of 'Gilligan's Island' here--thus, the name we chose.

Gilligan's Cottage is situated on a large rural lot which is filled with fruit and palm trees, to the delight of our guests. This valley is sparsely populated, and privacy and tranquility is what you will find here. Gilligan's has one bedroom, one full bath with a private outdoor Hawaiian Shower (which is very popular with our guests!). The cottage is fully modern in every way, yet still retains the charm of Old Hawaii in its plantation setting. And not only that, for the warmer, more humid summer days, Gilligan’s is fully air conditioned!

Moloa'a Beach--oh, the beach! Just a four and a half minute walk down a lovely paved country road. Very beautiful, very clean and very LONELY! Many times, you will be the ONLY one to be walking this beach watching turtles, picking up shells, and observing an occasional Monk seal. This is the type of setting in which you totally forget that there is a civilization!

But the nicest part--civilization is just a few minutes drive away from Gilligan's! You will notice that Moloa'a is centrally-located on Kauai, and after a day at restaurants, shopping, hiking, and touring paradise, you still have Gilligan's to come home to--only a dream away...

Anniversary Trip
We stayed at Gilligan’s Island for our 27 anniversary. It was a short walk to a beautiful beach, we loved sitting the porch in the evening and the owners were beyond kind and accommodating. Beautiful experience

5/5 Excellent

We loved our stay at Gilligan's! It was the peaceful, quaint, and comfortable get away that we were wanting for our vacation. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning with the beautiful flowers, trees, geckos and, of course, the chickens and roosters. One of our favorite things was all the windows - we would open them every time we were in the cottage and just feel the fresh air as it filled the home. A/C was really not a requirement but available if the evenings grew humid. Really can't say enough wonderful things about our stay here or the thorough and thoughtful preparations Tony provided! Can't wait to return!

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful and serene
My wife and I absolutely loved staying here. This is a cute and cozy cottage. We set out pieces of apple banana on and around the avocado tree. Then watched the adorable geckos enjoy their treat on the lanai. The yard has beautiful flowering plants and fruit trees which attract various song birds. Dawn and dusk are magical times when the forest erupts in avionic symphony. The chickens join in too. That's ok, they're everywhere. We walked to the beach everyday. We were the only ones there a couple of mornings. The snorkeling is fun and safe on the south side of the cove. What a blessing it is to have this experience in such a beautiful setting. We felt like we had the island to ourselves. Tony is as gracious a host as you would like. We didn't want to leave. We will be back. Mahalo

Great place
Wonderful and very nice fruit in the yard. We couldn’t keep up with the avocados!

5/5 Excellent

Great, secluded, restful stay!
We enjoyed our stay at Gilligan’s. It was clean, charming, and had everything we needed. After a day of hiking, swimming, shopping, and sightseeing it was wonderful to have a retreat to call our own.
