Welcome to Moloa'a Bay on the northeast shore of Kaua'i. This is.a large, secluded, pristine white sand beach that lends itself to coastal hiking, snorkeling, body boarding, surfing, shelling, swimming and sunbathing.

The beach bay is nearly ½ mile long. The name comes from molo a'a in the Hawaiian language which means "matted roots". Paper Mulberry trees (wauke in Hawaiian) once grew so thickly that the roots were interwoven. The Moloa'a Stream meanders through the valley along side Moloa'a road and empties near the north end of the beach which is backed by high cliffs. Uphill from the bay is the Moloa'a State Forest Reserve.

The Villa: This impressive home consists of three bedrooms, three baths, and 3,289 Sq Ft. of living space siting on pristine 2.5 acres of white sand beach frontage area. Moloa'a Bay was the site location for the TV pilot of "Gilligan's Island". Here is where the USS Minnow and its crew originally shipwrecked. This may be as close as you will come to living on Gilligan's Island. Here is everything you ever dreamed Kauai to be! A perfect crescent sand beach and turquoise waters. Mystical Moloa'a Bay is located on the North East side of Kauai. Truly "Off-The-Beaten-Path" giving one the sense of an exclusive & genuine experience of the REAL Hawaii. Moloa`a Beach has the least amount of rain of any north shore Kauai beach. It is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, picnics, sunsets and being away from the crowds. Annual average rainfall is 25”

Home is fully air conditioned. A wrap-around deck provides 2nd floor views of the ocean and coastline along with dramatic mountain vistas. The well-manicured Estate grounds are verdantly planted with Hawaiian tropical flora. A thick hedge at the beach edge provides privacy and security. There is an outdoor shower near the beach access

The Cottage: At the south end of the property near the entrance is a detached separate 2nd story guest house consisting of 994 square feet of air-conditioned living area with 2 bedrooms plus a loft and 1 bath. On your return from the beach, shower off in the new outdoor lava rock hot & cold shower. The cottage may be rented separately or along with the main home. Location is very private & cozy. Exquisitely furnished and fully appointed. There are ocean views from the cottage. Here you experience the casual Hawaiian elegance that typifies the spirit of Kauai.

(Be advised that ocean conditions can be unpredictable and unsuitable for swimming at times. Please use cautionary discretion when entering the ocean at any location on the island).
*These homes are located in a "Tsunami Evacuation Zone*

As a guest at Moloa'a Bay Villa & Cottage and (Property Management), you'll have access to Kauai's Premier Concierge Service, we will help you build your perfect vacation.

"Reunion with friends - perfect setting!
We met up with old friends on Kauai, and this was the perfect set up! The smaller family stayed in the cottage and the larger family in the villa. It was all just perfect. The beach is stunning, and good for boogie boarding. With young kids, it was nice to just spill out of the house onto the beach, pop up to the house for snacks, enjoy the huge yard for some non-sand time. It was a treat to cook at home and dine al fresco on the deck enjoying the stunning view. We want to come back! "

"Property is deteriorating
Salt water is obviously destructive, but many issues we saw were not a result of that. The toilets leak, and seats are broke, PS3 did not work. Home sound system did not work. Ice maker did not work, a repair man came, but did not fix it, so I fixed it myself. There are more issues, but not enough room to put them all in here. Basically, the view of the ocean is great, but the house needs a bit of work, mostly simple things, so I am not sure why that is not being handled."

"Idyllic setting
We've stayed in this property as a group of 10 people. It's our big family reunion. The house is on an idyllic setting. It's right on white sandy beach. The property has provided everything needed for the stay including beach chairs etc. Living room/ open plan kitchen and balcony has amazing sea view which really makes the stay very pleasant. The cottage offers more privacy being in the back of the garden and it's perfectly self contained. We're very much enjoyed our stay there. "

"Moloa'a Bay Villa and Cottage
This was a perfect rental for our family of 12. The one area of the beach was particularly suitable for the little ones (with supervision, of course). It was nice to have sand toys and beach equipment available. The views were lovely and the area quiet. The kitchen was well-equipped and suitable for preparing meals for our large group. We had a very enjoyable time and would love to return to this location."

"Wonderful private retreat on the beach!
We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The homes were beautiful and the view -- amazing! We ate almost all our meals in since we wanted to be home as much as possible. We woke up early each morning to catch the sunrise and enjoyed snorkeling a wave riding right our our door. Will return! Having both the main house and the cottage was perfect for our extended family, giving everyone a bit of privacy when desired. Never turn a TV on once, but there were several if someone wanted to watch movies on a rainy day. We were fortunate to have warm weather and sun every day. Loved the upper east side location as a base for exploring the island."

"Great week at perfect spot on beautiful island
We just spent a week at the end of May at this property with our family. The home was just steps away from a great beach. The beach was nice for walks and also calm enough for relaxed swimming and snorkeling. It was also within a short driving distance from many of the attractions on the north shore. The view from the deck was fabulous and the landscaping was very impressive. The property management team was quick to respond when we had a problem and the property was very clean when we arrived. The kitchen was very well equipped and we had several great meals with the wonderful view from the house. We also untied the guest cottage and that worked well for our family. We would recommend this property for a nice, relaxing vacation."

"Great place to stay
We used Moloa'a Bay Villa and Cottage for a family reunion. It was great for this with the beach right there and also a lawn area for the kids to play."

"Wonderful week in Kauai
My family had a wonderful time at this compound. The main house and guest house arrangement was ideal for giving the various generations the space they needed. The main house has some maintenance issues with some of the bedroom fans hitting the light figures when they turn. We also got to know the landscaping crew pretty well as they were there each day. "

"Near perfect house and location
Everything about this place was fantastic. The main house worked well for 3 couples- 2 with a small child each. Plenty of room in the spacious bedrooms and closets for everyone. The baths are slightly dated but very clean and functional. The kitchen is large and modern and well stocked with all essentials. The living and dining areas are wide open and perfect for gathering. The view from the house and large porch/ deck is spectacular and the beach is literally just steps away. The beach has great swimming and snorkeling. My brother and his wife stayed in the cottage and had exactly the same great experience. They had TV issues but the manager acted promptly to solve the problem. I don't hesitate to recommend this place and really hope to have the opportunity to go back again. If it's possible, the property is even better than it's description and pictures."

"Kauai vacation
Other than breaking my ankle on day one ( hiking on the island ) it was a terrific time. Beach is sheltered so all the little kids could safely play in the water. Beautiful secluded beach and wonderful views. Kauai has a lot to offer and our property was a good home base to our vacation. I can even recommend the island trauma center highly."

"Perfect for large family!!!
This villa is located in such a beautiful spot on the beach. Nice and private. Our only negative was never ending smoke detectors going and the beeping security system at the front door. If those could be corrected, it would have been absolutely perfect'"

"Unforgettable trip
The morning sunrise view is amazing! We rented out the whole property and very pleased with it! I loved how it came with almost everything you needed even extra beach towels. If we ever go back to Kauai we definitely want to stay here again! "

"Very satisfactory experience; few things to make it better
We were a party of 7, 2 of them using the back cottage. Our stay was very enjoyable. Just a few recommendations to make it better: central air conditioning system in large house is somewhat noisy; could be better to have separate more modern systems for each of the different rooms. Some bathrooms have small tiles finishings on walls and lavatory tables, which I think could be modernized to look nicer.

"This is a beautiful place to stay
We stayed here for almost 3 weeks. The house was very clean when we arrived. The cleanest I have ever experienced in over 10 years of renting homes. I had a few items that I needed to call about. The rental agent immediately answered her phone on a Sunday morning and was happy to help. "

"Ultimate Vacation Relaxation Opportunity
I really hate to say too much; we will have to compete with all of you for our next stay. This is a great spot, with a fabulous house, that has the feel that you are way off the beaten path, even though you are only 2 miles from the highway, and maybe 6 miles from good restaurants and groceries. We were lucky with weather for our late January stay; I understand sometimes the rains can take over. The surf is high, and beautiful when the winds come straight in, but we also had several days where things calmed down, and we could swim and snorkle, which you must be cautious about, especially in the winter. We started every morning with a beach walk - only a few other folks around. We stopped looking for other beaches after just a couple days, wondering why go anywhere else. We hit the beach early, and some of the shoreline is in shade from overhanging trees. There are reefs along both edges that do break up the surf, so there are opportunities to get a bit wet no matter what. Hiking trails start from the beach, and we tried some, but not all. They do lead to some great views. We could see whales in the ocean from our deck, and if you hiked to the points, you were even closer. There are 25 or 30 houses in the neighborhood around you, although you can't tell that from the house. It appears to be the best place on this Bay; but if it isn't, you won't complain. Bring your GPS for your car, and put this house as your "HOME", to help get back after dark. "

"What a week!
We rented both the main home and cottage for a week. There were 7 of us and we couldn't have been more comfortable! It was clean and very well maintained.

We spent a week relaxing on the beach and snorkeling in the bay. It was remote enough to be very tranquil, but close enough to town to drive everyday.

Sitting on the Lanai and watching the sun rise (jet lag allowed us many sunrises) couldn't be more relaxing.

We would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful stay on Kauai."

"Every time I visit I fall more and more in love
I have been renting this particular house for special occasions (Christmas, parents' 50th wedding anniversary, my 50th birthday, etc.) for over 15 years. The house and guest house are perfect for groups of 6-10, and the bay is off the beaten track so it gets very little tourist traffic. The bay features great snorkeling, boogie boarding and hiking, so there is no need to get into the car. If you do want to take in the sights of Hanalei and the north shore, it's a short 20-30 minute drive. In many ways, I consider this to be my home away from home and I highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Kauai. "
