The Palaka Vacation Cottage is a charming nostalgic vintage cottage located on lush private land across the street from the beach in Hanalei, Kauai.

Guests enjoy a large front green lawn and classic cottage architecture that feels like a welcome step back in time.

Wooden steps lead to its elevated porch with wooden rail posts painted green that protect the deck. The deck is furnished with a round glass table and four wicker chairs all around with cushions. From the front porch, you can see across the street to Hanalei beach. This Hanalei rental is wonderfully private, yet offers beach access via a short walk across the way.

Everything around this Kauai cottage is green and lush. Rising above the palm trees, you will enjoy views of the towering mountains of the Halelea Forest Reserve. The view from the cottage is the quintessential image of Hawaii. You experience this quiet charm, right from your Kauai vacation rental.

While not luxurious in the sleek manner of some newer rentals, it does have an antique charm all its own. The cottage offers you 1,100 square feet of accommodation for four guests, all on one floor. The rustic Northshore Kauai home has two bedrooms, each with a ceiling fan and a queen bed; they share one bathroom.

The bedrooms with their classic wood walls and flooring are cozy and welcoming. They enjoy yellow accents of color from its flower-themed throw pillows and a pair of lampshades.

Their shared bathroom has blue tiles for their counter space, and clean bath towels and robes under the counter, ready for use. The shower area is enclosed with the shower curtain bordered by its elevated step.

The Hanalei cottage has a living room with a sofa and a flat-screen TV for entertainment. It also comes with a DVD player. It’s got an extra "Punee" or Hawaiian bed at the corner, big enough for kids to pile on or serve as a lounge for an adult by the TV. The living area has its own ceiling fan.

The dining area can seat four, and a BBQ grill is ready outside if you pick up fresh Ahi for a wonderful Hawaiian meal.

Your Hanalei Kauai accommodation is fully air-conditioned and comes with Wi-Fi. The cottage is ready for laundering beach-worn or hiking weary clothes with a washer and dryer.

Though not a luxury villa, there is comfort found everywhere around the cottage - clean cushioned sofas, bright pillows, wicker chairs, and a spacious ceiling. Its kitchen has cupboards, drawers, and ample counter space for four guests. It even has an island breakfast table with wooden stools for two.

From this accommodation, you’re close to many Northshore Kauai attractions. It is in the ideal location for those who like enjoying walks along famous Hanalei Beach. You can even enjoy some surfing nearby.

Mountain hikes are close by, with routes that end in beautiful waterfalls. Hanalei Town is nearby for shopping and dining.

Find your true Aloha spirit in this charming, classic Hanalei beach home.

This Hanalei cottage is perfect for couples or small families who prefer cozy, antique charm over glitzy new constructions. The location is just dreamy, located right across the street from Hanalei Bay. This works for a cute honeymoon hideaway too!

  • - Stayed in 2019
    Palaka Cottage is our heaven on earth. We have stayed here twice, extending it much longer the second time. We love the authentic Hawaiian feel of the plantation cottage. It feels like a home away from home with all the amenities you need. The decor is relaxing, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is fully stocked to cook your meals, and we love that there are lots of dining table options (kitchen, lanai, and outdoor picnic table) to change it up. The outdoor shower is great after a sandy day at the beach, and the lanai is a perfect spot to unwind. The location is unbeatable since it is right across the street from the most beautiful beach in the world, and close to Hanalei town. It?s also helpful to have a property manager that made everything seamless for us. We will back again and again to make more family memories! I literally cry when I have to leave this place! A hui hou!
