Spectacular views, comfortable high quality furnishings, private access and all the toys you need for the beach, plus all the privacy, peace and quiet you could want amidst a tropical botanical garden. Our second time here, even better than before. Pure paradise.

This is the most spectacular property -- stunning home, beautiful landscape to explore, and unparalleled access to Secret Beach. A truly unforgettable experience getting to stay here. Couldn't recommend it more highly!

I can’t even express how amazingly perfect this property is. My husband, daughter and I stayed in the main house, while my son and daughter in law stayed in the cottage. There was more than enough room for all of us. The views are ridiculously amazing. Both houses were fully equipped with everything we needed. They’ve thought of everything! Jimmy was quick to respond to every question. The property is stunning. Highly recommend!!

Our Family travelled from Los Angeles California and Canberra Australia to stay at this beautiful property. The main house and the cottage were a perfect fit for us, they were both nicely equipped. The beach is beautiful, and we really enjoyed walking and hiking the trail. Located near Kilauea town & lighthouse, it was near some good shopping and a nice small market, it it’s not far from Princeville where a large market is, and also not too a far drive from Hanilei which has shops and a great scenic beach. Take a cruise up the coast to see the beauty of the Napoli coast, it’s amazing! We would definitely recommend the Jungle Bee, it’s an amazing large private property. Jimmy the Caretaker was really helpful with everything.

Beautifully kept property. Gorgeous ocean views. Spectacular waterfall on the path down to Secret Beach. Both the main home and guest house were well appointed.Our entire family had a very relaxing vacation. The property host was very friendly and always available for our needs and questions.

Brought our family together ( 2 adult children, 2 spouses, 2 teenage granddaughters 13,16) Just wanted time as a full family we live coast to coast. The property was fantastic loads of room to roam. Some rarely left the beach and jungle others traveled the island. Something for all. Our only wish was dinner together and that was easily managed with a large kitchen and full seating for 8. Plus so many options of where we could have it. The estate was so clean and wonderfully manicured. Just needed the food and our swimsuits. Rest was there.

The property was even more amazing than the pictures. Very comfortable, all the right amenities, perfect privacy (except for the chickens!) and jaw dropping views. The walk to the beach is a floral and fruit adventure, and the beach, surf and views were spectacular. We will be back and will stay longer.

What an incredible property! We could not have found a more perfect destination for our family vacation. The main house was well appointed and a perfect fit for a portion of our family. My wife and I and our two young kids stayed in the cottage and felt like we had our own little slice of heaven! The view is spectacular and there is no better place to relax than on the cottage front deck or patio. The property manager Jimmy was fantastic and made us feel right at home and was responsive to any questions or needs we may have had during our stay. Thank you Jimmy! The property is stunning with a wide variety of citrus, avocado, cacao and other fruit trees at every turn. The walk to the beach is magical in its own right as you traverse the tropical jungle, cross over meandering streams and go through the Cacao tree groves. It’s a 10 minute walk and worth every minute so take your time and enjoy the hike. Secret Beach is just wonderful and with the private access to this sparsely populated beach we almost felt as if we had our own private beach. The surf is high in the winter months but the kids loved frolicking in the waters edge and we spent many hours soaking up the sun and the beauty of this beach! Our family ranged from ages 9 to 75 and I can say with certainty that this was a trip of a lifetime for all of us. I can’t say enough good things about our experience at the Jungle Bee House and Cottage! We can’t wait to visit again someday…hopefully sooner than later.

A beautiful secluded property with two dwellings that comfortably fit our whole multi-generational family for an unforgettable Christmas holiday. The kitchen was stocked well enough to allow lots of cooking and baking for the holidays, and we were just a few minutes drive from a lovely little town and market. All the comforts of shops and restaurants nearby, while we felt complete privacy amongst the trees overlooking the ocean.

This property is one of a kind. It’s on the north side of the island, so it gets a lot of rain. This makes the bottom of the property a tropical jungle which has been cultivated into a fully functional cacao farm accompanied with other fruits. The property comes also equipped with its own flock of chickens and a herd of pigs. The chickens are up at dawn the the pigs are out at night. We got snorted at a couple of times at night walking between the houses. It really is a magical place and I will definitely be back.

My husband and I had the privilege of staying at this property again. We are already looking at booking our next trip. We love the privacy this property provides and the unique decor. There are trees on property which we enjoyed picking fruit from and there’s also a private valley that you can hike through to get to secret Beach. I won’t talk too much more about this property lest I not be able to get a date for our next trip :) Also, Jimmy is incredibly responsive and an overall lovely person. Thanks again Jimmy!

This was our 3rd visit to Jungle Bee. We have busy lives and Jungle Bee is a place to unwind & simply experience the extreme beauty that is all around. We managed to leave the property a few nights to take advantage of the great restaurants but mostly we wanted to stay put! The walk to the beach is a joyful adventure each time. You never know what wildlife you are going to see. And Jimmy the property manager will take care of your every need! Love Jungle Bee!

The two homes were beautiful and clean. Great ocean and tropical landscape views from both houses. About 10-15 walk to the beach on a nice trail. Lots of nice restaurants near by. We will definitely return!

Fun place to stay. The grounds are the star. In the main house, beautiful views of the landscaped back yard from the deck with both the mountains and ocean as the backdrop, and with bird activity to enjoy all day. In the studio, beautiful views over the stream valley. The “trail” was an extension of the yard. First part was a trail down to the stream. This is the one part that would be a challenge to people with mobility issues, with a narrow path on somewhat uneven ground and somewhat steep. Probably to be avoided if falls are a concern. Second part was really a landscaped yard along one side of the stream that extended down to a great little waterfall. This part has the couple of groves of cacao trees that I guess make it a “farm”. Looks like maybe this was designed as a spiritual refuge (complete with buddha type statues) in a previous incarnation of the property. Feel like royalty having this remote, private garden for strolls. Final segment to the beach is an old concrete road, a couple of small but steep hills on it but otherwise easy footing. No traffic on this road…not sure why it is there. Fun to look for different fruit trees throughout yard and trail. We found papaya, fig, mountain apple, avocado, orange, mango, grapefruit, soursop, and noni. Not all were ripe and often the numerous wild chickens (who did crow consistently and loudly at daybreak at 5 am and throughout day) got the fruit first. Houses were in good shape, well equipped, and comfortable. A bit different than other rentals because they don’t really provide “anticipated” info (like a guest manual or advance communication) but the property manager was very responsive to phone calls (messaging on vrbo app was less responsive). So just be prepared to call the property manager with any and all questions. Also, they provide minimal toiletries but two stores just down the road in Kilauea with everything needed. Kilauea was great for markets and food options, so make sure to try as many as possible.

The property is truly a wonder. My favorite part of my day was walking the path to the beach. The path is gorgeous and filled with beauty and lush greenery. My husband and I stayed in the Ocean suite and it was romantic and cozy. Conversations with Jimmy the property manager were easy, fast and accommodating. We'll 100% be back to Jungle Bee.

We really enjoyed the beautiful house and garden, full of fruit trees. The two homes were perfect, views amazing, kitchen well appointed, great showers. Be careful at the beach as the waves can be treacherous, and pull you away from shore. After an incident, we chose to go to other beaches instead.

My parents, my sister and her boyfriend, and my husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay at JungleBee! The property and the surrounding area are just gorgeous, the houses are nice, and Jimmy was responsive and helpful. I expected the property to be nice, based on the photos and video, but it was so much nicer than I expected. The views are phenomenal. Both of the larger bedrooms in the main house have views of the ocean, which I didn't expect. The walk to the beach is pleasant and not terribly difficult, but when we were there in June 2021 the water was a bit rough for swimming. The waves weren't huge, but they were strong. (Our Nā Pali coast boat tour tour was rougher than the one I'd taken on a different visit, though, so maybe Secret Beach would also normally be calmer in June.) Difficult swimming notwithstanding, we had a wonderful time, and we'd be happy to stay there again!

The property is absolutely amazing and our daily walks down to the beach were delightful. Both houses were clean and well appointed, with the smaller cottage being a bit more modern and the big house more traditional Hawaiian style. The AC in the cottage was quiet and kept the entire house very comfortable. The big house became a bit toasty in the late afternoon, even with the tradewinds blowing, but quickly cooled down after sunset. Both AC units in the bedrooms worked well to keep the rooms comfortable. Cellular reception was sporatic in both houses. The big house had a faster wifi connection making wifi calling a bit easier to manage. The insects took some getting used to, especially the house geckos which "chirp" all night long inside both houses, high above, on the vaulted ceilings. The centipedes can bite, so walking around without shoes was sometimes problematic. Frogs are everywhere on the property, but are harmless, like the roosters and their crowing that begins at 3:30 AM. These things are typical almost everywhere on Kauai, although since the houses are so close to the jungle, they are more noticeable and expected here. We all enjoyed the plentyful wildlife. The property manager was easy to communicate with and was helpful when needed to address a few, very minor issues. A brief power failure knocked out the spa. The garbage disposal, one ceiling fan and ice maker in the cottage did not work, but the ice maker was repaired quickly and worked perfectly during the majority of our entire visit. The kitchen appliances and cookware in the cottage are gourmet quality and worked great. We had a very enjoyable stay at both Jungle Bee houses for two weeks and would definitely return to the beautiful and unique property.
