Guestbook comments from the owner
The house was extremely comfortable and convenient to the local beaches, hiking and restaurants. It was exactly what we were looking for.



We will want to visit Kauau'i again and this place will certainly be at the top of our list.



Thanks for making our trip such a success.

Mike purchased this house in 2001

We love Haena! The location of this beach-style cottage is in one of the most beautiful and special places in Hawaii and the world. Between the dramatic mountains and the white sand, there is a sliver of development which includes low density local and vacation homes. Kauai restricts the number of vacation homes in this area. Don't expect to see condominiums or commercial development. All of the nearby activities take advantage of the beauty that is unique to the north shore of Kauai. We get favorable comments from our guests. Once you find this special area you'll want to return. This home is actually in 'Haena' and is not miscoded on VRBO.

For less than the price of a resort condominium, you can enjoy a vacation home with private upstairs deck. There is not another rental on this corner, cul-de-sac lot. Affordable vacation homes within a short walk to the beach. Home is on two lane, well traveled road. We live on Kauai and lovingly maintain and update this cottage. Guests give us positive feedback and we are happy to see them refer our vacation home to their friends.

Recent improvements include 6' perimeter privacy fencing, new dual pane windows, new entry way, new lanai, new covered stairs, new garden sunning area, new second bathroom.

Great Place

  • 5 out of 5
This house was cute, comfortable, wonderfully relaxing and had everything anyone could want including beach gear. We loved getting to stay so close to Tunnels Beach, interesting lava caves, Ke'e Beach, Ha'ena State Park, the trailhead to Kalalau Trail and in one of the most lush, green and tropical parts of Kauai. If you want to be away from the bulk of tourists this is the place to be. Although the house is on a main road, there is absolutely no traffic at night and it is very quiet. The owners are very conscientious and thorough. It was nice to have air conditioning; we were able to use it to bring down the general temperature in the house, and then rely only on the ceiling fans all night to keep us comfortable. The beds were a perfect combination of support and softness. The house felt very private, and it was always a joy to return to after exploring the island. My kids got a big kick out of the lone adorable gecko that showed up in the shower periodically. I will always return to this rental in the future.

Owner's Response: We appreciate travelers who love Haena and the value of our property. We are currently working on rearranging our bath to add a 6' double sink, glass top vanity and another window. We are also creating an "outdoor room" in the area of our entertainment/BBQ area. This lower level space will have a flat screen TV and small refrigerator and quiet reading area. We hope to have both of these projects complete by early summer. Yes, we do have one gecko! We have carefully caulked and sealed the kitchen and bedrooms but we still have a friend who occassionally shows up in the shower.

Great spot on the north side of island

  • 5 out of 5
We were very happy with our stay at Barefoot Hideaway. The house was very clean and had just about everything that you would need. The location is beautiful and lush. We appreciated it because it was away from the fuss of resorts and other issues that come with crowds of tourists. We had been warned thru other travel guides that the beaches nearby would be packed and difficult to find parking - we on the other hand found parking in every beach and wonderful places to relax and snorkel. We loved Kauai!

One of the only things that we thought would be awesome to have here were bikes! It would have been great to take off in the morning for a ride down to Ke'e beach.

Thanks for the great place. We will recommend it to others.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 4 out of 5
We had a great stay at Barefoot! The Air Conditioner in the master bedroom wasn't working when we arrived, but we called and they replaced it the very next day, very prompt service. The second bedroom and main living area had separate AC's so we were comfortable.
We didn't walk to the beach, but we did walk to the Mediterranean restaurant, which was very close, the food was okay. The drive to Tunnels beach was quite short and easily accessible, same for driving to the end of the road to Kee Beach, just a bit further past Tunnels. The house had everything that we needed and the master bathroom (fairly new) was very nice. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to the area.

Best rental on Kauai

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I have stayed here multiple times and we must say that it has been wonderful.
The location is perfect for Tunnels and Kee beaches. Close to the caves and much more. We had no problems finding groceries or restraunts. The house is well equipped with basic items, very neat and clean, and the AC was a + .We will be back.

Tropical Paradise Delight!

  • 5 out of 5
My family of five stayed at this beautiful and charming home for five days. Haena is truly the perfect place if you want to get away from it all. This part of the island has truly an authentic Hawaiian vibe and is breathtakingly beautiful. The home is in a perfect location, very private and nearby Tunnels for snorkeling and a super quick drive to Ke'e beach and the Kalalau trailhead. The owners were great to deal with and were very responsive to my questions before and after my booking. They have also taken great care to ensure you have a comfortable vacation. They supply many amenities- beach supplies such as boogie boards, chairs, towels and even water shoes! Having a washer and dryer was useful too, especially since we went through so many bathings suits during our stay! This tropical paradise home is fantastic and we will certainly stay here every time we visit Kaua'i!!

Well appointed, charming, clean, great location

  • 5 out of 5
This was our third stay in Haena. We absolutely love the beaches and lifestyle here. While we'd had success with a couple of other rentals in the past, our needs have evolved with our family on each trip. We were so happy with our choice. The location was terrific and just where we expected to be. The pictures are reflective of the charming, clean and comfortable interior. The house was very thoughtfully stocked - lightbulbs, first aid, paper towels, etc. We also took advantage of the beach toys, boogie boards and snorkeling equipment. We definitely hope to return and will recommend this property to our friends and family.
