Welcome to your very own tropical paradise located in Haena on the north shore of Kauai. Steps from the world famous Tunnels beach. The house is situated on a half acre. It is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, week or two with friends or a family vacation or reunion.
The house is a three bedroom home with that beechy feel you expect in Hawaii. The master bedroom has a California King bed and an on suite tropical bathroom with a stone shower. The guest room is light and airy with a queen bed. There is a separate suite that can be used as a second master bedroom or a bunk-room for kids. It has its own bathroom and can sleep up to six.
Enjoy the stunning views of Mt. Makana ( Bali Hai) from the expansive Lani's that rap around the house while you have your coffee in the morning or drinks in the evening. If you wake up early take a quick walk to the beach and watch the sunrise, or go for a swim in the warm pacific waters. Sunsets are also memories you'll never forget from the beach.
Our guest love the array of actives that are available, combined with the ability to do nothing and relax. You can choose to swim, snorkel, hike, whale watch, collect shells, surf...., or curl up with a book and take a nap.
Ten minutes away is Hanalei Bay and the Historic Hanalei town. There are great restaurants and boutiques to fulfill your culinary and shopping cravings.
There is a large yard and tropical garden that make the surroundings complete.
There is also a guest house on the property we call, 'The Tree House'. It is a spectacular house with, 'rain forest' granite, and custom hand made copper sinks.

What a great house for a group of friends . The outdoor areas were a huge plus ... Coffee off the living room deck. Pupus on the larger deck .The big front yard made for a great game of whiffle ball. The outdoor shower was delightful after being at the beach .And the location couldn't be better. There is a fair amount of traffic on the road, but because the house is set back , it's not that much of an issue. The house was very clean and well stocked with nice towels ,sheets , glass wear , and cooking utensils . The beds were comfortable, Having the downstairs area furnished is a nice touch while bar-b-queing . All in all a very relaxing house and we will be returning .
We just got home from a wonderful vacation with three generations of our family. The location was perfect for us, close to the beaches and not far from Hanalei. We swam, played on the beaches, hiked, took surf lessons and ate out a couple of times. The house with it's two bedrooms and it's separate bedroom and bath suite worked well for our large group. What a great place and what warm hospitality. Highly recommended.
This house is a great way to spend your stay on Kauai. If you want a house that feels like a complete quiet getaway but with all the comforts of home, then this is your place. The house is spacious, comfortable, has a huge lanai for lounging. The landscape is beautiful, and makes you feel very private in between the neighbors. The beach is a short 5 minute walk and Tunnels and the End of the Road is a short car ride or 15 minute walk. The house is located on the most beautiful, and lush part of the island.
Hanalei is a short 10-15 minutes beautiful car ride, and has a Big Save for basic supplies (Kapaa has a 24-hour Safeway too for bigger shopping at off-hours), some good restaurants, and great fish market at The Dolphin (which also has some incredibly fresh sushi made fresh at the restaurant- the best I've ever had), Bubba's burgers and great little coffee house with amazing coffee and waffles! Gets busy on the weekends.
The owner of the home, Jeff, was great to work with and very responsive and quick to answer phone calls, questions, or emails. That to me is a huge plus when trying to plan a relaxing vacation. Communication was very easy and smooth and he refunded the deposit very promptly.
There is a guesthouse on the property which at first I thought would be a problem with privacy and noise, but it turned out to be fine. It was booked for most of our stay and aside from their car going in and out occasionally, we didn't really notice them. They were very quiet.
The house is fully equipped with kitchen gear and supplies (including trash bags, dishwasher and laundry soap, bath soap etc), plenty of bath and beach towels, and some beach gear which is left by others but in good shape. No need to rent or buy coolers or beach chairs, or towels. The house was clean and well maintained.
I loved feeling like a local, taking walks on the beach and getting coffee at the local coffee house. So much better than being in a cramped hotel room or a condo, which you can hear your neighbors or be staring out the window out at another condo building. None of that here. This house feels like you are submerged into paradise and you get the full experience of the island and the magic it offers.
We spent a week here and enjoyed both the space of the house and the location right by some great north shore beaches.
The house is well maintained and equipped, especially in the kitchen. The large decks together with the yard and under-house area give everyone a spot to retreat to and also burn off energy together. The outside shower is heaven after a long sandy beach day. You're clean before you step back into the house.
The owner is very responsive and easy to deal with. We had a problem with the washing machine. He replaced it with a brand new one right away and refunded half a night for our trouble.
My only complaints are with the beds and having a second house on the property. The beds are very soft and _very_ squeaky. The second house takes away from the privacy. We were lucky to have a quite couple during our stay. It does break the magic when you're playing around in the yard an another car drives in or people walk through.
The location is a 5 min walk for a nice and very quite sandy beach with good close to shore splashing around or get some quite time on the sand. It is 15mins (we timed it walking with all our beach gear and a 5 year old) from Tunnels beach with is one of the world's most amazing beaches and our reason for staying here. We found the snorkeling, scuba diving, and kids kicking splashing around to be perfect.
The location is remote which is what we wanted. The price is a 15 min drive to good coffee in Haena (which was amazing) and 45mins to Safeway. You have to plan ahead with your supplies then enjoy the quite.
High end finishes, thoughtful inclusions, tons of space, and a perfect location. Our family of four, including a teenage boy and preteen daughter, loved this place. Whether sitting outside enjoying the mountain views, relaxing in the very comfortable bed, and heading off to the beach, this house met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. There is a ton of room for families large or small. The kitchen has all you could need. The wood floors, bathrooms with high end finishes, and even the ceilings are beautiful.
Things to know - the beach is less than a five minute walk. This beach is good for near shore swimming and digging in the sand. Tunnels is a 10 to 15 minute walk. In the summer, Tunnels is some of the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii. Hanalei is a 15 to 20 minute drive depending on the cars in front of you. The end of the road is a five minute drive. The washer was great, and we used the clothes line to dry our clothes. The only TV was in the living room, which was just fine for us. The Wifi was perfect.
The owners are very responsive. From responding to our first email to a very quick deposit refund, the owners were quick to respond to any question or concern we had every step of the way. They also make you feel at home. Their house is very comfortable while still being very nice. It is inviting and encourages you to treat it as you would your own house.
We have rented more than 20 properties throughout the world. This one certainly ranks as one of the best.
This was our fifth trip to Kauai and we've finally found our favorite home. Both the inside and the outside are so spacious. The master bedroom is airy and the master bath is spectacular. The gardens are well manicured and the property allows for a lot of privacy. There is a home behind the home that we stayed in and there was no problem with privacy. This part of Kauai is remote, very rainy and so beautiful. There aren't any hotels and the closest restaurants and shops are a few miles away in Hanelei. Tunnels Beach is a 10 minute walk away. At home, We live near a big city and we love to come here and feel like we're far away from it all.
