About Lisa and David Breen
We love our life here on the north shore of Kauai and enjoy the healthy lifestyle and unique sense of community that Kauai offers. We feel very fortunate to be able to offer visitors the unique experience of staying on a working organic tropical farm and nursery.
Lisa and David Breen purchased this Cottage in 1981
Why Lisa and David Breen chose Kilauea
Our farm is a labor of love and never ending work in progress. David purchased raw land in 1981 and planted orchards and gardens. Over the years his deep love for and study of the plant world has made him an expert on palms, cycads, flowering trees and fruit trees. We are world travelers and designed the Hideaway as a perfect getaway with everything we would be looking for in a home away from home. Our location is ideal in every way. Minutes to stunning beaches and Kilauea town, yet still in the country.

Peaceful and Pleasant Stay at the Hideaway
Lisa was there waiting for our arrival. She gave us a tour and showed us all of the amenities for our use. She gave us recommendations for restaurants to try out. After that, they left us completely alone, which was wonderful. We were seeking a quiet and private accommodation, somewhere we could relax and recharge. It truly felt like a hideaway!
It is well located near local towns and various excursions. What was so nice was to have a “homey” place to come back to after a long day of excursions. It had practically every item you could ever need. Not only was there plenty of kitchen appliances and utensils, but also beach chairs and a beach umbrella, a washer/dryer...we were provided with milks, granola, fresh fruit and all the macadamia nuts we could crack!
Bathing outdoors was an exciting experience, to be sure! We even got to enjoy the company of cute little geckos and we befriended a large toad that lived in the garden. All in all, our honeymoon was made perfect by our stay at the Hideaway.
Perfect North Shore Hideaway
Garden Hideaway is the perfect name for this property. It felt safe, private and tropical. The sounds of the outside made it even more special. Lisa made us feel like we had a friend on the island should need anything. We were greeted with fresh fruit and macadamia nuts which we ate all week. We enjoy local food so it was nice to have local granola and honey with our yogurt each morning. The outdoor tub/shower were just as we imagined, romantic and fun! Lisa gave us excellent recommendations for food. It was nice to have the grill to cook dinners, which we took advantage of as well. The full-size refrigerator came in handy as we stocked up on snacks and drinks at Costco. We got a lot of use out of the boogie boards, chairs and beach umbrella. It was the perfect place to celebrate 25 years of marriage. The Garden Hideaway made our trip memorable ❤️
Thank you for your lovely review! I'm so happy when my guests have a wonderful and memorable experience staying at Garden Hideaway.
Perfect couple getaway
We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and wanted someplace different that the usual resort. This cottage had everything we wanted and needed. The owners are so easy to work with. They left fresh fruit and nuts and avocados along with yogurt and granola and coffee and milk and fresh honey. We will forever cherish the memories of our stay in this cottage and on Kuaui. We will be Bach hopefully one day soon.
We came back to the garden hideaway after staying here for our honeymoon two years ago and it was just as lovely as we remembered. My wife and I would recommend it!
The Perfect Vacation Get-Away
Booking the Hideaway was super easy. Lisa let me know that there would not be any kitchen facilities inside but a wonderful Weber Grill just steps away. Perfect directions to the Hideaway and Lisa met us upon arrival. She was super friendly, informative and would be available at any time. This secluded Hideaway was all we ever wanted, peaceful, quiet and right on the North Shore. We have stayed at two other locations on Kauai but our next visit will definetly be at the Hideaway.
Thankyou so much for your lovely review. I am so happy it's been your FAVORITE accommodation yet on Kauai! We hope to see you again.
North Shore Favorite!
What a fabulous home away from home! Everything was clean and restfully colored. The fresh produce Lisa left for us was delicious. She thoughtfully left us yogurt and island granola to have for breakfast, too. Not only that, but there was snorkel gear, beach chairs, and beach towels all ready for us. Next to the jaw-dropping gorgeous location, the outdoor shower and tub were almost as amazing. What a delight! Mahalo for the kind hospitality!!!
Thank you for this lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet the two of you. I'm so pleased that the Garden Hideaway met all of your expectations for a chilled out, relaxing retreat!
