Best vacation destination

  • 5 out of 5
The island of Kauai is our favorite vacation destination. It's unspoiled natural beauty captivates us every year that we visit. The Hanalei Surfboard House is the most unique and comforting rental on Kauai and the only place we choose to stay. This private secluded property has great state-of-the art amenities, is clean, well-maintained, and is conveniently located within a few minutes from hiking, beaches, restaurants, and local grocery stores. Parking is up-front, and the owner/host is always welcoming and excellent with recommendations for activities. We are expecting to book in Dec for our next Kauai vacation. We recommend an early booking since Hanalei is a popular destination spot.
Thank you!

Excellent Hospitality and Local Experience

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at The Hanalei Surfboard House for a week this Oct. The location was excellent, we were looking for a place with a true local feel (get away from the standard american resorts) and great accommodations. We stayed in the Love Shack - room highly recommended! It has excellent beach/surf/rock-n-roll decor in a private setting w/ private entrance (great place for couples). The location is great beach access about a 30 second walk to Pine Trees surf break/ Hanalei Bay. Simon the owner/host was very gracious, upon arriving he set me up with a neighbor to get a board for the week, gave us the run down on the great local restaurants / famers markets. Overall we had a great experience at the Hanalei Surfboard House it provided the laid back while maintaining an extremely active vacation with local feel that we were looking for. We stayed the last two nights on the island at the St. Regis in Princeville , while accommodations at the St Regis are nice, they where nothing compared to the Hanalei Surfboard House which provide a more personal touch and local feel, we found ourselves leaving the St. regis every morning to go back down near the Surfboard house beach which was much more relaxing and local. Highly recommend Simon and his dream vacation rental property he has created.

My favorite vacation yet!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
The Elvis suite had everything we needed for the perfect beach retreat! Beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, big comfy beach towels, coolers- everything! The kitchen too was complete with everything we needed to cook delicious fresh seafood from the nearby dolphin restaurant, as well as blend up delicious piña coladas with local Koloa rum. The king size bed was so comfortable with high quality sheets. And the shower, both indoor and outdoor was the best I've ever had! Simon was such a gracious and hospitable host. He made sure we had everything we needed and was available to answer any questions about the area. The beach is literally a 30 second walk from the house and Hanalei bay is the most beautiful beach. This is THE area to stay on Kauai and the surf board house with its ideal location and endless amenities is the perfect place to stay. My husband and I will be back soon!!!

Most amazing getaway, better than home!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the cowgirl suite for 8 nights and absolutely loved it. The description is spot on, lovely garden entrance, very helpful and accommodating owner, every amenity you could need in the suite. The house was clean and comfortable, and very stylish, which made it enjoyable to stay in on the one very rainy day we had. We grilled at the house multiple nights, using the grill on the lanai. We liked those dinners even better than going out, especially using Simon's recommendation on where to buy fresh fish, he has lots of helpful recommendations for the area. The view is gorgeous, something we never stopped enjoying. The house is located, like it says, just a minute walk to the beach and also not a far walk to main downtown Hanalei. Its so nice to have the things you can't pack to take to the beach, like boogie boards, chairs, mats, etc... When you need a break from the heat, the ac in the suite is amazing, especially at night. This is the best place to stay, we would say, in all of Kauai. It doesn't get any more comfortable or convenient. We will definitely be returning.

The Hanalei Surfboard House is amazing beyond words!

  • 5 out of 5
We have been vacationing in Hawaii for years. Kauai is our favorite Island. We always stay on the North Shore as it is the most beautiful. We have stayed at other Vacation rentals as well as hotels. Nothing compares to The Hanalei Surfboard House. It is located in the heart of Hanalei. Walking distance to world renowned beaches, great places to eat, the best local farmers market and a great little health food store. There is tons of great little shops to shop at too. Simon is a great host! The property is so well maintained and private while accommodating us with everything we needed. From our own BBQ on our lanai to boogie boards and beach chairs. We could not have felt more relaxed or comfortable in the Cowgirl room. We have booked The Hanalei Surf Board House for next year already. Why stay anywhere else?!

Can't Imagine a More Perfect Place to Stay in Hanalei

Can't Imagine a More Perfect Place to Stay in Hanalei
  • 5 out of 5
Staring at a blank page attempting to express our gratitude is humbling and we have no idea where to start. When we originally came to Kauai on our honeymoon seven years ago, not knowing any better, we stayed near Lihu’e at what was the Hilton (Kauai Beach Resort). Once we saw Hanalei we fell in love with the north shore and vowed that one day we would stay in the heart of Hanalei. You gave us that opportunity and we could not be more grateful. The Elvis Room provided us everything we had been dreaming of!!! True of Hanalei, close proximity to the water, and an impeccable place to call home for a few days.
Staying in the surfboard house allowed us to live a dream. As I step back I realize that we simply hitched a ride on the dream you put into reality years ago and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. These last few days allowed us the ability to step outside of our grind, reset our souls and reconnect in a profound way.
This is the third time that we have visited this island and we learn something new about it and ourselves each time. That said, we think we have reached the pinnacle of our experience here and couldn’t imagine another visit without your home (unless of course we figure out a way to move here ;-)). Through the surfboard house, your hospitality, and the surroundings that your dream created, we have found the proverbial Nirvana.
To those of you staying here in the future, pat yourselves on the back for a job well done. Heaven on Earth is the only way I can and will describe our experience here. The proximity to the beach and the expanse of the North Shore is something we can’t begin to describe.
Mahalo for everything Simon and we will attempt to share our Ahola with you and the surfboard house (and, of course, dear sweet Noodle) forever.
