Private romantic cottage with enclosed garden courtyard, outdoor shower & bath on our lush & lovingly maintained organic tropical fruit farm & palm nursery in Kilauea Farms. Enjoy fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, tea & coffee. Permit # Z-IV-2015-32.
The Hideaway was created with your every comfort in mind. Your home away from home is tucked away down its own private drive and enclosed in a serene, tropical Asian style courtyard. A comfortable outdoor lounging lanai, under a pergola of tropical vines, looks out over the peaceful meditation garden. The open floor plan and high pinewood ceiling create a sense of spaciousness in the light, airy, uncluttered and tastefully done 500 sq. ft. one room cottage with dining, living and sleeping areas.
Our guests rave about the enclosed outdoor shower and bath area that is directly off the indoor 1/2 bath. The cottage is done in shades of apricot, beige, gold and green and decorated with Hawaiian art prints and furnished in bamboo, wicker and rattan. The comfortable king size bed is covered in good quality linens. Plush robes are also provided.
The Hideaway comes stocked with goods for a light breakfast. We provide freshly roasted, organic, hand picked Kona coffee beans with coffee grinder and coffee maker, an assortment of teas, sweeteners, whatever types of milk you desire along with organic yogurt, granola, macadamia nuts and fresh fruits in season. Fresh, homemade beverages such as coconut water, ginger lemonade, macadamia nut milk, tangelo and orange juice are also available at your request.
The kitchenette area has a refrigerator to store your snacks and takeaway food as well as a bar size sink. Our Home Stay permit does not allow us to provide a hot plate, microwave or toaster oven for cooking. Guests are welcome to use the Weber Grill in the Hideaway's covered BBQ area just beyond the enclosed garden gate. We provide knives and cutting board, blender, juicer, glasses, dinnerware and silverware for your use. There is a clothes washer and dryer inside the cottage.
The cottage comes stocked with yoga mats, beach towels, beach blanket, beach chairs, boogie boards, mask and snorkels, beach umbrella, picnic cooler and shopping bags for your excursions.
Our central location is ideal. We are just 50 minutes from the Lihue airport and 35 minutes from the end of the road in Haena, making anywhere on the island an easy half day excursion. The small local flavored town of Kilauea is only five minutes from the Hideaway. There you will find a great bakery, shops, restaurants, yoga studio, pharmacy, post office, gas station and other conveniences. We are longtime Kauai residents who are happy to share our favorite spots with you as well as setting up special requests such as in house massage and other holistic health treatments.
We established our working farm nearly 35 years ago. Lotus Farm and Nursery was one of the first organic farms on Kauai. You'll see us around the property working the land and tending the nursery. Our orchards produce macadamia nuts, coconuts, oranges, tangelos, lemons, limes, coconuts, avocados, mango, lychee and longon. We sell our fruit commercially to brokers in Canada, fruit stands on Kauai and local residents who come by to pick up their special orders. Our nursery supplies landscapers with exotic palms, tropical ornamental plants and fruit trees.
Enjoy your own private space at the Hideaway and feel free to wander through the orchard and palm nursery rows.
Lisa will greet you at the Hideaway upon arrival to get you situated and show you where things are and how they work. Our guests enjoy their privacy and we are very respectful of it. One of us, David or Lisa, are here at the farm most of the time if you have questions or need recommendations for your daily outings or suggestions for restaurants. Lisa is always available by text if needed.
The Hideaway is ideal for those seeking peace and quiet. No loud music or noise between 10pm and 8am. No smoking. Please park only in the designated parking space just outside the Hideaway gate.
My husband David and I live on our organic farm and nursery on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. We host guests at our bnb, The Garden Hideaway at Lotus Farm. We love traveling, especially in Europe. I enjoy creating beauty and being inspired by beauty in all forms! Doing yoga, creating gardens, designing interiors, planning travel adventures, hanging with our two Abyssinian cats, reading novels, being in nature, walking in cities admiring great architecture and preparing healthy, good food. Being in gratitude for my beautiful life! I have a great appreciation for comfort, kindness and attention to small details. Our daughter Leila attends Haverford College where she is a Poly Sci major with a concentration in Peace, Justice and Human Rights. A few of reviews from hosts that are posted here are actually for Leila and her friend when they traveled through Europe together in the summer of 2016.
