About this cottage

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...

    A little slice of paradise.

    Secluded and peaceful (except for the chickens) with Shama birds singing in the morning and evening. This is our second visit to Gilligan's Cottage and we highly recommend it to anybody wonting to escape from the "resort" atmosphere and truly have a relaxing stay.

    Wonderful cottage in a secluded location

    The place is magical and Tony is a wonderful host. My only complaint is not being warned in time that the crowing of many roosters right outside the house will wake you up starting at 3am so bring earplugs and a sound machine. Everything else is just as described. 4 minute walk to an almost deserted gorgeous beach.

    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

    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!

    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.

    Where shall I begin? Location, cleanliness, amenities, description? I spent a great deal of time searching VRBO nearly a year in advance of our trip. After looking at hundreds of options we settled on Gilligan's Cottage. What can I say? Research pays off.

    Everything you need

    This is the perfect cottage for two or maybe a couple with a child. The owner has thought of EVERYTHING, from swim diapers to Zip-Locs to extra towels. It was the best provisioned of any of the dozen VRBOs we've stayed in. The nearby Moola'a Beach is beautiful and never crowded. Our adult children and partners rented the Skipper Cabin so they were close by, but we still had our privacy. I will say that there was LOTS of rain and flooded roads during our stay -- more than we've ever experienced in our eight trips to Kauai -- which had to do with luck as well as the time of year (November). We even had thunder and lightning! But this is a beautiful spot where you can settle in for a tropical vacation or use as a base for island exploration.

    Everything is just how it appears in photos and description. The walk to the beach is very easy and pretty views while walking. We went to several beaches on south shore and east and found the bay close to house to be one of our favorites! We would not hesitate to use the same rental property in the future and maybe even Bring the kids and stay at the Skipper! Tony very reachable and helpful!
