Hanalei Moon Beach Cottage
- 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3 in Hanalei, HI

Availability and Booking

Description ↑↓

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.

My husband, son 10 and I came for a week to Hanalei moon beach cottage. The small home is walking steps to the beach in Hanalei and has a large grass area to play on. Although small the cottage served it’s the purpose and provided ample space for us to sleep. We could walk into town for dinner or shopping within minutes. Great visit to Hanalei. 12/04/2019 at 5:16 AM

We love this place and we will return. It was everything we wanted, simple, oceanfront, beach access and quiet. Perfect for a couple and the outdoor shower was a treat every time. The owner is very kind and accommodating, promptly answering our questions before our stay. We can’t wait to return!!! 11/12/2019 at 8:57 PM

If you want to experience “old Hawaii” on one of the best beachfront lots in Hanalei, the Moon Cottage it! It was our 2nd stay and fit our vacation lifestyle perfectly. Best location, part of the local community, and yes – rustic. We hope to be back next year! 10/02/2019 at 10:59 PM
Amazing place, phenomenal location. Highly recommend!

Had a little glitch with the homeaway/Vrbo app but once we called the manager, everything was easy and good to go. Recommend you verify if using the vrbo app because we potentially could have been in a bind but everything worked out. The place is cozy but perfect for a relaxing get away. Would happily rent again. 05/27/2019 at 7:45 PM

We enjoyed a two-day long wind storm from this property and it was perfect. The gas stove came in handy when the power was out, and the view of the storm from the living room could not be beat. The house is in good condition and it had everything we needed. 02/15/2019 at 5:47 PM

What a great little getaway cottage on Hanalei Bay. It is so well equipped with everything you might need. The location is perfect to either walk into town or drive west to Ke’e or Tunnels beach or the amazing Limahuli Garden. Just a short walk over the “lawn” to the ocean. Loved Hanalei & loved the Moon Beach Cottage. 05/11/2015 at 3:36 PM

Perfect place, more than adequate. On the sea shore in the sun, or shade as you wish and only a two minute walk. (maybe 100 yds?). We enjoyed it so very much. All essentials are there for use, and we were quite comfortable. I sure do hope we can make it happen to visit again. Also – enjoyed the squadron of chickens who came to visit. Melodic (sort of) and vibrantly colorful. The birds seemed to like us too. 10/14/2014 at 10:56 PM

This was our third time staying in Moon Beach Cottage (and last year we stayed at another one their properties) and it really is a little slice of heaven. The cottage is situated right on Hanalei Bay, with ocean views right outside your living room window. We took walks on the beach every morning and BBQ’d on the last at night several times. Just the most relaxing vacation! 05/06/2014 at 11:17 PM

This is the second April week we spent at this spot. Different weather, different sights – equally wonderful. We wanted quiet and privacy and views and that is exactly what we got. We love this cottage as a base for exploring the island. Everything you need is there. We highly recommend the property. 05/04/2014 at 4:02 PM
Laid-back Getaway

Our stay here was quite happy despite mostly rainy weather. The proximity to the beach is sensational. There are three other cottages on the property but it still felt very private. We enjoyed the outdoor shower and beach equipment. Overall the cottage was clean, comfortable and well supplied. Two improvements we would have appreciated would have been a better coffee maker (more than two cups) and a propane barbecue. But overall this is a very special location which we feel fortunate to have enjoyed. 03/16/2014 at 10:34 PM

This was a perfect little beach house. The view is straight out to the ocean. It’s walking distance to town where there are several restaurants but we found the fish market and ate in instead since the restaurants didn’t have as good a view as the cottage. 01/27/2014 at 11:03 PM
Amazing Location, Super Cozy Cottage

My husband and I stayed at the Hanalei Moon Beach Cottage over Thanksgiving, and we couldn’t have asked for a better location. The cottage is the perfect size for two people, and the living room has an amazing view of the ocean. It literally takes about 30 seconds to get to the beach – just walk across the grass, and you’re there! The cottage itself is not terribly modern, but everything is clean and works well; we had no complaints about anything. Hanalei’s shops and restaurants are about a mile away – it would’ve been nice to be a little bit closer, but the walk is only 15-20 minutes, and given the choice of being closer to the town or the beach, I’d rather have the beach. Overall, we had a great stay, and we’d like to return to the cottage in the future. 12/31/2013 at 12:04 AM
Unbeatable location, some things lacking
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star

This place has an unbeatable location. The views at the house are incredible (beach in front, mountains at your back) and having one of the best beaches right in front is an amazing experience. It was extremely relaxing getting to fall asleep to the waves crashing on the beach. We were greeted with a welcome basket as well, which was a nice touch. The house was clean and the photos represent the house fairly well. My husband and I came for our honeymoon and it is the perfect place for this type of trip. The location, despite being in the northern section if the island, is still relatively convenient to everywhere (within one to a little over two hours. Note that traffic north of the airport can be bad at certain times of day. There is enough to see and do close to the cottage that you don’t necessarily need to travel far to do great activities. Not that it really impacted our stay, but there were a few negatives I wanted to mention since all other reviews were extremely positive. I can’t rate the place higher since the house was not well stocked for us. No extra rolls of toilet paper, paper towels, barely any cleaner in kitchen for wiping counters, minimal laundry detergent to name a few was disappointing given the cost and what I would have expected for an extended stay (and amenities described with the house). It almost felt like the owner was banking on the visitors resupplying the house during their stay, which as I mentioned before was not gratifying. Other cons are no air conditioning (it got hot during daytime hours) and no dishwasher (which I think is a must to ensure dishes are fully clean/sanitized between visitors). The house is also right next to a couple other homes, so it is not as private as you might expect from the photos, especially since windows have to be open all the time. We had a great visit and I wouldn’t say these things are enough for me to not recommend this place, but wanted to bring them up so others can compare this more accurately to other rentals. 09/20/2013 at 6:21 PM

Beautiful house and location in Hanalei, in our eyes it cannot be beat! Very convenient, very efficient, so many things to do just outside your doorstep! The house suited us perfect, as it was just 2 of us – we went to the grocery store on the way in, and stayed there for a majority of our time – minus a few trips down the street to restaurants/bars, hiking The Napali, and visiting a few other beaches….the perfect setting with a gorgeous yard stretching to the sand….it just doesn’t get any better!! 07/29/2013 at 7:58 PM
