About Tiffany Burbidge
I am the daughter of the owner and manage the property. My father built the home and I have been traveling there for 22 years multiple times a year. I love Kauai and Moloaa is a peace of heaven for me. Woodrose Plantation has become a part of my family. I have 5 children and have been married for 29 years. We vacation here every summer for a month or more. This is truly a home away from home. My home is in Utah where I love to ski in the winter and escape to Kauai when the cold is dragging on.
Tiffany Burbidge purchased this Estate in 1995
Why Tiffany Burbidge chose Anahola
The very private location situated on high ground above the flood and tsunami zones yet close to the bay was paramount. Large beautifully landscaped property with many fruit trees for our use combined with rare and beautiful Plantation Architecture and modern amenities yet green and clean is rare. Proximity to beach and ocean yet enough distance to be safe for families with small children is also hard to find. Sufficient distance from noisy pounding surf in winter yet close enough to feel fresh breezes and hear ocean music requires the perfect distance to beach. Privacy of this Beach makes it safer and devoid of crowds with trees for shade when we've had enough sun.
What makes this Estate unique
Moloaa is unique in that it is located in a banana belt and when it is raining in Princeville it is often still sunny in our little bay. We are in a semi-private bay and there is not much parking which makes it less crowded. We have many fruits and a great road to run or bike or walk up to the fruit stand. You can pick wild strawberry guava and passion fruit on your way. Moloaa is truly unlike any other place I have been and if you like to be away from the business of life this is a wonderful place to come.

Amazing Piece of Paradise
If you enjoy, privacy and want to live a truest amazing island experience during your stay in Kauai, this place is for you! If you are not used to humidity and critters then I’d suggest a resort.
The home is very well equipped with everything you need for fun on the beach, cooking, laundry and cooking meals. The bedding was fantastic, the home was clean and it was very to feel at home.
We did experience a power outrage for a few hours which left us without fans or water since the home uses an electric pump to supply water but it wasn’t a huge issue - these things are beyond the property owner’s control. We also had some issues with the cable TV box but fortunately those were corrected when the power went out and the box reset. Finally I did kill a couple of large roaches/water bugs but again, this is a tropical island and totally expected.
Their was a wild boar that seemed to live on or near the property which was an amazing sight to see in the early mornings when we had coffee out on the deck.
The walk to the beach is short and very lovely...we’ve stayed in the neighborhood 3 times now and this by far was my favorite stay.
I’m afraid to recommend too highly for fear that I won’t be able to book I this place again in the future if it gets too popular (wink, wink). Overall an excellent place to relax!
Thank you for your review. We love it when others see and feel about Woodrose Plantation and Moloaa the same way we do. Of course we don’t like the boars they tear up the lawn:) we hope you come back again.
The house is beautiful and the grounds spectacular. The beach is pretty although we did not really use it much as each day was packed full of other things to do. Tiffany was very responsive for the few questions we had. In August it is hot but there were plenty of fans to keep air moving and it cooled down pretty fast at night. Although The loft was always pretty warm and probably not a great option at this time of year. We really liked the location as it was midway between the north and south shores which is where we seemed to be going most often. We would definitely stay here again.
Great location, interesting property!
The Plantation property was such a great location. Moloaa bay is heaven on earth. The property is as described, older, but what you need. The beds are more comfortable than a hotel and sheets were excellent. Be mindful of the jungle like atmosphere, there will be bugs and geckos, but you’re in paradise, it’s a small price to pay. Tiffany was very responsive and attentive.
Moloa'a Bay Plantation House
The location and grounds for the property were outstanding. There were maintenance issues that were problematic, especially with the heat.
Multiple fans were not working properly and multiple light fixtures were also not working. I loved the area; not sure about the house in the summer.
Great vacation house
This was such an amazing property. The yard was great for the kids to play in and there are lots of creatures to see. Also, the beach nearby was just perfect. We really enjoyed our selves.
Thank you so much for your review. We are glad your kids enjoyed the yard hope you had some fruit too:)
Close to a beautiful beach. Overall a very good stay.
Moloaa Bay is one of the most private bays on the island. There is fun for all ages on the exposed reefs and tidepools, the sandy beaches, snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, swimming, fishing, or roasting marshmallows on a fire at the beach when you are not picking fresh fruit or flowers and just want a rest. There is shade at the beach (large trees), for those with fair skin and protected areas for small children.
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, wildlife viewing, basketball court
