Welcome to Jungle Bee!

Please watch our video in the picture window

video tab above...

There are two homes on the property, a 3 Bedroom Main House and a Newly remodeled 1 Bedroom Ocean Suite.

3 Bedroom Plantation Style home- 2 king sized master bedrooms with attached bathrooms. One smaller sized room with a trundle bed that pulls out to 2 twin beds. A third full bathroom is directly outside the small bedroom. There is also a queen sized pull out couch in the living room. This home has a large open kitchen/living/dining area, which is great for family gatherings as well as an attached rear Lanai (porch) with panoramic ocean and garden views. The home is fully appointed with a well stocked kitchen, High Quality linens, and comfortable island style furnishings. Amenities include high speed wireless, HD cable TV, phone with free long distance throughout North America (now also Canada and Mexico), iPod docking stereo, kids toys and books, and much more (full list below) Kauai’s trade winds keep the house quite cool, but we do offer Air conditioning in the two master bedrooms. This home was completely updated in 2009. We also provide hybrid style bicycles, snorkel gear, coolers, and beach chairs.

1 Bedroom Ocean Suite – This house sits perched on top of a valley leading down to Secret Beach and the ocean views are amazing! The 785 sq. ft. Suite is fully equipped with a well appointed kitchen, washer dryer, full bath with rain shower, King bed, 42” flat screen TV, Bluetooth stereo, land line phone with free long distance (North America,Canada, and Mexico), HD digital Cable TV and Wireless internet, and quality furnishings. The outside space offers a large sunset deck with an outdoor dining table, seating area, hot tub, outdoor shower, and two lounge chairs. Enjoy stunning sunset views from the deck or the living room and fall asleep to the sounds of the waterfall in the valley below.

Please ask about renting one of the two homes in the off season. We only rent to one party any given time period so if you rent one of the two homes you will be the only guests on the 13 acre property and will have exclusive private access to the sunset deck, hot tub, and grounds. One house pricing is typically 699/night for the Ocean Suite, and 799/night for the 3 bedroom Main House, We require the rental of both homes together in the summer season (May 1 - September 15).

Jungle Bee Farms is a Cacao or Chocolate farm, but the plant diversity impressive with many exotic fruit species, Cacao (chocolate) trees, and Native Hawaiian Plants.

You will have 13 acres to explore on our private trail between the homes and the beach. Secret beach is one of Kauai’s true gems. With its limited public access you can enjoy this mile long stretch of white sand beach practically by yourself. Secret beach offers experienced surfers world-class waves in the winter and is usually calm in the summer. In your wanderings, you’ll discover nature’s bounty as you walk through our exotic fruit orchards, pick tropical flowers, and enjoy the two magical waterfalls on the property.

If it sounds like you’ve discovered the Garden of Eden, you’ve got the right idea

Rates for renting Both Houses:


September 15 2017 - April 30 2018 - 899 per night

May 1 - September 15 999 per night

About Jimmy


My name is Jimmy, the caretaker of Jungle Bee. My wife Robin and I live about five minutes away from Jungle Bee and have been taking care of the property for about ten years. We have been involved with remodeling the homes and transforming the grounds into the beautiful botanical gardens that exist today.

Aloha from Jimmy, Robin, Pete, and Hilary!

Great week on a nice property

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. Along with some friends, we rented both houses for 5 days. Everything was pretty much perfect (except the mosquitoes). Houses we both well equipped. The lower patio was amazing and having direct access to Secret Beach was very cool. We would definitely come back.

Amazing place and very accommodating host

  • 5 of 5

We booked the property for a week long family vacation recently and were blown away by how helpful and accommodating Jimmy was. Not only is the property stunning and very relaxing but having the ability to walk down to the beach or take the supplied bikes out for a ride made for an amazing vacation.

Jimmy was also very accommodating in allow a baby supply rental place deliver a crib prior to our arrival but he also allowed us to have a late check out on our last day which took a huge stress off our shoulders when trying to entertain 2 small kids until 8pm.

We rented both the main house and lower cabin which was great for our large group and both were set up to accomodate both parties.

One comment on the property is that the main house and lower house are not right beside eachother as we had thought. It's a few minute walk down the property which was slightly unexpected but still manageable with a large group.

Overall I would recommend and also rebook this property.

Energizing and totally relaxing at the same time.

Orange juice will never be the same after squeezing our own from fruit growing in the yard

The beach path is like an enchanted trail.

We can’t wait to come back.

Perfect location, perfect accomodations, perfect host!

  • 5 of 5

I feel so lucky to have found Jungle Bee and Jungle Bee cottage. Our family stayed in both for about five days and had an unforgettable experience. Jimmy was very attentive when we arrived, explained everything carefully and showed us around the premises. Welcome baskets with local goodies were much appreciated! He is a wonderful resource and happy to share local recommendations. He remained very responsive the whole time and made sure that we had everything we needed. Jungle Bee and JB Cottage are beautiful architecturally, spotless and well appointed - very nice amenities in a comfortable and casual setting. As others have described, secret beach (a real beauty) is a short walk away. It is hilly; most of the way is through a manicured park-like setting with blooming and fruiting exotic plants. There were a few slightly muddy areas, but our group, ranging from age 18 to 61, found it quite easy and well worth the trips. Jimmy had invited us to pick whatever fruit was ripe on the grounds. Just down the road, there is a group of shops, a bakery, and a restaurant in nearby Kalihiwai, all worth a visit - authentic and comfortable. Further down toward Princeville is a larger grocery store and more restaurants. The view from the deck at the St. Regis in Princeville is mesmerizing and a fun place to have a cocktail and watch the sun set. We also loved the nearby little town of Hannelei and Hannelei Bay. We found very good food there: Hannelei Bakery and Bar Acuda are next door to each other and owned by the same folks - very inventive, fresh local ingredient small plates, as well as delicious cocktails are served at Bar Acuda. Another top spot is the Dolphin Restaurant - a good choice for Poke! You won't want to miss the Na Pali Coast - hike it if you can or you can travel by boat around and through caves, up and down the coast, often including a snorkeling opportunity. Jungle Bee and Jungle Bee cottage are even more beautiful than the pictures show, Very peaceful, as long as you are aware that there are roosters on this plantations who don't hesitate to express themselves confidently. Thank you Jimmy for the amazing opportunity to stay at Jungle Bee - it made our trip of a life time even more perfect!

Very private and great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented both houses and it was perfect to allow the teenagers to stay in the ocean suite and the adults in the main house. Both houses were very clean and well maintained, and Jimmy was available anytime we had questions or needed something. The trail to Secret Beach is easy in our opinion, and a beautiful jungle walk with no one around. We went down there about every other day. Tons of fruit trees on the property and the trail, so we always had fresh fruit to eat. A beautiful secluded oasis, but very close to everything we love in North Kauai.
