Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Wainiha - Little Beach Shack

A view that will become etched into your soul keeping you longing for more

Best place to 'Shake it off'.....Kauai. New Year 2015: My To Do- Vacation Hawaii Must be on the beach, must have direct full ocean views. If you're traveling as solo, couple or group up to 4, this location and accommodation fits the criteria (rare to find). This property was created in the spirit of aloha, to capture the desire of sand between your toes and to fill your eyes and heart with mother natures best work, birds singing, flowers blooming, rainbows shining; a perfect space for the soul to relax and rejuvenate. This home away from home offers unobstructed ocean views from every room. If you’re seeking a retreat where you can check out of your mainstream daily grind and become one with nature; consider this remote area; yet only 3 miles from the historic quaint town of Hanalei. The property is comparable to a lake cabin on the mainland. The quaint cottage home, offers a full kitchen with dramatic ocean views; you can BBQ at home or dine locally (a short stroll in the sand) or a scenic drive town just minutes away. You will be constantly immersed in tropical splendor that only Hawaii can offer. The ocean waves are the predominant sound, lulling you to sleep. Located in a remote area of the North Shore; that is friendly to visitors. Longtime residents call a hidden jewel of the island. This North Shore location is a secret to most, but only 3 miles to Hanalei Town. Many travelers are steered to stay on the South Side; where the hotels and a plethora of tourist are! If you are a seasoned traveler and/or know you’re not a hotel person; but rather one who’s seeking a more natural experience. Roll out of bed onto the white sand beaches; strolling for miles and miles, at times not seeing another soul; scratching your head saying how can this be all for me! Our backyard is your beach - an amazingly beautiful and peaceful setting of nearly private uncrowded beaches. You can snorkel, kayak, swim, surf, boogie board, fish, walk, and hike, relax, enjoy right in your backyard. Local area amenities Horseback riding, shell hunting, wind surfing, Luaus, all nearby. Dining 5 star to family, art galleries, shopping, all nearby. The North Shore offers the best and least crowded surfing, for the experienced surfers. Most of our guests enjoy staying close to home and enjoying the ultimate Hawaiian Paradise; without loading up the car wasting precious vacation hours searching for the perfect spot. You will see not only dolphins, (during migration season) Whales breaching and so many other amazing creatures under the many rainbows; right out your window.

Favorite activities include walking on the beach, fishing, Zip lining, horseback riding, and tennis, golfing, biking, and hiking the Napali Coast at the nearby “End of the Road” on the North Shore Road. Only 3 scenic miles to the infamous town of Hanalei. You can enjoy a BBQ in the front yard as the sunsets dazzle you and the cool ocean breezes gently caress you. Isn't this what a tropical paradise is supposed to be? Or if you want to leave the cooking and dishes to someone else; take a stroll over to the Mediterranean Gourmet (lunch or dinner). Conveniently close, serving delicious authentic Mediterranean food, full bar and entertainment. If you want to experience the quaint night life head into Hanalei town where you will find many choices for dining from $-$$$$ something for every appetite and budget.

The Kauai Love Shack is situated on the ocean, with unobstructed ocean views. Come stay where the people come to get away from the crowds. Upon securing your reservation we will prepare your personalized Final Instructions to include our local area favorites and secrets!

During the summer months the ocean is general gentle and warm on the North Shore. During the winter months higher surf can roll in, and direct access may become less desirable. The high surf makes for great photo opportunities especially at the End of the Road and several other overlook points. Local respect is a must, at times you may see a Hawaiian custom in front, families fishing. Hawaiian families come to this location for special fish (once or twice a year), they will not disturb you, they are friendly and maybe they will share some fresh fish!

Our Hale is 3 miles from Hanalei, a historic quaint surf town with great shaved ice, shopping, the famous Hanalei Pier great for all water activities to include fishing, swimming and Paddle boarding and last but not least world class surf spot. Hanalei bay has several public access points we recommend checking them all out! Many other nearby beaches all waiting for you to discover; just remember the sunscreen the sun is at a higher burn degree than that of the mainland. Always bring plenty of liquids to stay hydrated.

Everybody has expectations, be sure to let us know what you’re seeking the more we know, the better we can assist you with your Kauai dreams...do come true.... submit your dates today!

The setting and views of the ocean have to be the best on Kauai!! With only a few steps to the water this home is a true tropical paradise.Nick the owner was very informative and has a great attitude and has thought of every thing you will need.I would recommend this property to anyone who can get here!! We hiked the trails at the end of the road the the views are spectacular. We saw countless whales , sea turtules , and Dolphins. The snorkiling was amazeing. You can not go wrong renting this home.

Amazing cottage with breath taking views!!

  • of 5

We were so blown away with all of the extra touches you guys added to this place. Nothing was needed, everything we needed was supplied. First of all the view are breath taking. Right when we walked in, the Hawaiian music was playing and the gift basket on the table with local treats was perfect! This place was more than we ever dreamed. It's a cute cottage with everything you need. Christine was so sweet and made sure we had everything we needed. We hope to come back again one day. Thank you for letting us stay!

Very Pleasant Experience

  • 4 of 5

This place is all about location: right on the ocean; somewhat isolated on the North Shore of Kauai, with very little beach activity close by. It's perfect for sitting on the sand and contemplating the waves and crabs scuttling back and forth. You may or may not be able to swim in the ocean right outside (the shack provides some beach toys and chairs), depends on the conditions.

The furnishings are perfectly fine and abundant and as advertised; the WIFI worked properly; there were plenty of portable fans in case it got hot; and the washer and dryer are good quality; the bed was comfortable and the towels were good quality, including beach towels.

The property was well maintained and clean, especially when you consider you're right on the ocean.

The contact was responsive and very pleasant during the booking process, but we had no reason to contact anyone during our stay.

I would recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from it all.

We enjoyed dining in Hanalei (about 10 minutes south) and the beach park a few miles north. There's also a coffee shop within walking distance, although we normally had our own. I would recommend stocking up on food in Kapa'a (Safeway or Foodland) since it's less expensive and better selection; but there are stores (including a natural food store) in Hanalei.

I would give five starts if it weren't so expensive.

Bali Hai Paradise !

  • 5 of 5

Incredible location. The ocean views were so expansive and close up I felt as if I were on the balcony of a cruise ship. Extra amenities provided, i.e. snacks, coffee, beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, etc. very impressive. Spotless home, fantastic kitchen. Christine is great to work with ! Princeville and Hanalei conveniently close to grocery stores and restaurants. I have visited Kauai many times before but always stayed on South Shore or East Shore. Not any more ! Thanks again, Christine - you rock !

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We felt so welcome the moment we entered the "love shack".

It REALLY is as wonderful and as close to the water as the photo gallery shows.

4 of us were quite comfortable and felt we had plenty of space to live together for a week. Was so tidy and clean. The owner did not miss a thing in having the space ready for us. I absolutely did not want to leave! Thank you.

What an amazing island! And the Love Shack is the perfect place to stay on Kauai. My wife and I had a truly wonderful time on our honeymoon. Great private location and a house that has everything you need for a perfect Hawaii experience.
