The Koke`e Experience
We hope that our guests can appreciate the unique opportunity it is to have simple access to stay in the natural beauty of our State Parks; Koke`e Park / Waimea Canyon. This is a rare and valuable treasure that those in the know have great appreciation for.
There are many who feel the Koke`e Experience is paralleled by no other. Hiking temperatures are perfect. Access is as easy as it could be. The visual rewards are simply spectacular. Combine this with the cultural heritage of such a place and you have the makings of a deep experience thick with wonder and spirituality.
This being said, this remote location does come with some inconveniences.
These are cabins in the MOUNTAINS! Many are not accustomed to thinking that in Hawaii, you can be cold! The Cabins are located above 3000 feet. This means you can expect temperatures 20 Fahrenheit lower than at sea level. 40-70 Fahrenheit in the winter and 50-80 Fahrenheit in the summer on average. With occasional cold snaps! You may purchase high quality firewood at our check-in office, for heating with the only heat source for the Cabins; the wood burning stove. Most find building a fire at their cabin while on vacation to be a fun and unique experience.
While we work overtime to manage mountain/forest critters and foliage, you can expect to see these things at the cabins. The Cabins are also located in close proximity to the center of Kauai; touted as the wettest spot in the world. While this achieves impressive greenery, it also comes with; fallen trees, soft and/or slick soil, and mosses/mildews. As the saying goes, there is no stopping Mother Nature.
If the conditions of a wet and mountainous forest are not what you are looking for, DO NOT STAY AT THE CABINS AT KOKEE PARK! You will be much happier at one of our arid ocean level accommodations at the entrance to the park or the hotel of your choice. NOTE: Check in office is in Waimea- Cabin is located in the Park.
We look forward to servicing those who have appreciation for all the Cabins at Koke`e have to offer and hope to see you soon.

We will check your ID when you arrive and if you are not of age, you will be subject to the cancellation policy. This late cancellation usually means we will not be able to re-rent your unit and you will forfeit your rental payment.
-We expect “Quiet Enjoyment” by all guests. If we receive a noise complaint, you will likely be required to vacate and be responsible for any losses in rental due to your actions.
-Please leave the cabins in good condition when you vacate. You can expect to be billed for any excessive cleaning or damage. All decisions made by the management on this issue are final.
- If you exceed the maximum advertised capacity without prior approval, you can expect to be ask to vacate the property. Normal cancellation policies apply in this case.
