The Kauaiian Nature of the Hale inspires the feeling of 'Joy of Living.' It is great because of the private beachfront location, pool, upstairs hot bathtub with bubbler; within this unique tropical home.This is a custom home; with exotic Balinese carvings and furniture. The upstairs is private and is accessed by a stairway overlooking the ocean. This leads directly to the secluded beach which is on the property about 30 steps away which is said to be # 1 in snorkeling. Champagne & tropical fruits for breakfast; JUST BECAUSE is the phrase to live by at our Hale. Bali Hai mountain/waterfall/rainbow views from the lanai's,outside hot shower, gas- 5 burner -barbeque, cable TV/VCR, fax/telephone, WI-FI internet, Washer/Dryer, Dishwasher and a queen sleeper sofa.

The famous Sunrise shells are located nearby. World famous Tunnels Beach is 3 minutes north; Ke'e Beach , the beautiful lagoon is the entrance to the Napali trial about 3 miles to the end of the road; Hanalei beach is about 3 miles south. It is in one of the most world wide revered locations by the local Kauaians and vacationers in the world.

Princeville is a short ride to the south. The #1 voted golf course in Hawaii (The Prince Golf Course (Princeville) and Kiahuna (Poipu Bay) were designed by world famous Robert Trent Jones, Jr. The Makai golf course was completely renovated and is a spectacular 27 hole course including The Woods, The Ocean, and The Mountain nines. There are over 9 excellent golf courses on the island of Kauai. It is a tropical paradise/home to many celebrities the world over because of the tropical climate, beautiful beaches, and amazing gardens/flowers.

sleeps from 6 to 8 with three sleeping ares + two Master Bathrooms+ view lanai accommodations. Pool, 2 bathtubs/3 showers. This is the oldest islands in Hawaii and one of the last paradises on earth.

Famous Tunnels Beach (some of the best surfing in the world) is about 3 minutes by car or a short walk to the left of the home. Ke'e State Beach is our favorite and is like a large 200-400 yard long calm bathtub protected by a long reef. Many tropical fish, turtles, etc can be easily seen in 4 to 8 feet of water. On the left side of the beach is a local school of yellow tang fish numbering up to 200 plus. Ke'e beach is great for children and is about 10 minutes north at the beginning of the hike to Kalalau Trail.

Hanalei Beach and the town of Hanalei is about 8 minutes south and Princeville is another couple of miles south of Hanalei. It is a great location where tropical breezes blow away mosquitos that may be found further inland.

It is one of the last places on earth that is slow and peaceful where nature inspires all.

Why Michael chose Haena


What makes this house unique

It is quiet, peaceful, serene, rural, tropical with ocean and mountain views. Rainbows and waterfalls are visible. Pool; bathtub with bubbler upstairs; are major benefits being privately fenced. The Balinese design is spectacular throughout. The beach in front of the Hale is very private with great shelling and some of the best swimming/snorkeling on the island. The locals like to fish for Ulua here and other types of delicious fish. The serenity and peacefulness is unique to this magical spot in paradise. You will experience this when you stay here. The Hale location was selected by an old Hawaiian family who picked this spot as their own family dream vacation home site which was only one of many hundreds of acres that they owned.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really liked Hale Ono because of the location with beachfront access to good snorkeling and swimming at Baby's beach. Tunnels beach was about 2 minutes and was our second favorite with Ke'e beach a close second because of the bath tub feeling caused by the surrounding protective reef.

The home had fresh linens, well appointed kitchen, cool breezes off the ocean, refreshing pool, and plenty of toys- boogie boards, beach towels, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. We received a lot of helpful information from the manager in terms of great restaurants, stores, adventure spots, beaches, etc. We bargequed and cooked a lot at the home which was more private and economical for us even though we went to the Mediterreanean Seafood Restaurant Luau on tuesday night just next door at the Hanalei Colony Resort. www.hcr.com We want to stay longer on our next trip to Hale Ono. Mahalo and Thank you.

Lovely and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The house was great. Lots of room and incredibly quiet at night as far as human noise! The ocean and wind in the palms is loud and wonderful. We really go to unplug here. Thank you for a well needed rest!

Owner's Response: Thank you and Mahalo Amy. We agree with you entirely about Hale Ono being peaceful and relaxing where you only hear the sound of the waves and palm trees fluttering. The owner has stayed there at Hale Ono, Kauai, and the other islands for long stays this year and has grown to appreciate the natural beauty of the N. Shore and Hale Ono with its special beachfront location with mountain views as well. She cries when has to leave if only for a short time. Our family and friends have experienced the mellowness of Hale Ono over the past 10 years and have returned many times. Each time we find something new if it be another adventure, trail, exotic fruit, restaurant, snorkeling place, etc. It has been a lifetime of fun and family togetherness on the beach in such a picturesque ocean and mountain setting with waterfalls, rainbows, and exotic birds.

Quiet and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Hale Ono is located in a quiet and beautiful part of the island, close to Na Pali coast, Kalalau trial, Tunnels and Ke`e beach. It is very private and safe. The nature is exquisite. We enjoyed living in the house and had no problems with any utilities, rodents or insects. It`s very clean and well maintained. I also enjoyed the proximity of the Hanalei Colony Resort. It has a nice coffee shop and a Mediterranean restaurant. The beach was almost in the backyard. We loved bringing our beach chairs and watching the waves in the lazy afternoons.

Good place to stay on the north shore of Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Hi, My lady and I stay there during the month of January 2015. It totally worked for what we needed. It was a safe place back in the jungles Ha'ena about 15 minutes from Hanalei down a beautiful road. The stars are really cool during the night with not to many people around. We went to sleep early and didn't party much as we were there for nature and surfing. Michael was awesome home owner and was super helpful recommending places. Its near tunnels and Kee beach which is a short drive away. These beaches are more remote and beautiful with not to many people. The waves on the north shore are no joke. Make sure you get burger meat from the gas in Princeville, California poke from Princeville Foodland and fillets from Costco. We cooked on the grill every night to save money and its was better than any restaurant. The beach out back is good for long walks and nobody is ever on it. Heaps of little crabs provide great entertainment as they place cat and mouse from the water. This place is really special. Peace and Love!

Convenient Location with privacy, pool, and ocean views

  • 5 of 5

We are thoroughly enjoying the N. Shore of Kauai near Tunnels beach at Hale Ono. We have had certain requests that were complied with in short order and appreciate that since we realize we are in a far away area on an island in the Pacific. The weather has been about 80 degrees with ocean water at 75 degrees. That is what we have been waiting for.

The home is well equipped with Island quilts and fresh sheets/comfortable beds/ cooking utensils, etc. We have been enjoying the privacy of the home in the pool area where we like to dip in the dipping pool. The washer/dryer are better than the ones I have at home which helps a lot. It is comfortable with all of the different items we need.

We enjoy the boogie boards and appreciate the beach towels, beach chairs, etc.

We have been going out to dinner a lot at Barracudas, Hanalei Fish, Mediterreanan Gormet, and the fabulous seafood brunch at the St. Regis Hotel on Sundays. It is pricey but worth every penny.

We also took many pictures of the tropical flowers here in the garden. There is a cute Hawaiian bird that flys next to us that is black, with a golden chest. He will stay with us for 10 minutes or more in the morning and about 4:30 in the afternoon. He has such a melodious voice.

The beach in front of the home is a bit rough now in the middle of the winter but we still dip in. We really enjoy going to Annini and Ke'e beaches for snorkeling and swimming since they have flat water and are reef protected for the most part.

BBQ time has been special where we enjoy our favorite drinks and look at the sun reflecting off the waves.

Pleasant, convenient beachfront location-tropical

  • 5 of 5

The location was very conveniently located near all of the top beaches on the N. Shore which is our favorite place to vacation. All of the amenities were very satisfactory. We are picky about where we stay and this home has everything we needed and was clean and had beautiful custom Balinese-Thai carvings which created a tropical environment.

We liked that privacy and stars at night viewed from the beach in front of the home. The private, fenced in, pool was refreshing after a day at the beach.

We also liked the hot/cold outdoor shower which we used everyday upon returning from our adventures.

The luau next door at the Mediterreanan Gorment restaurant on Tuesday nights is not to be missed. The dancers and fire eaters were very talented.

The respresentatives were very informative and gave us a lot of information about activities and fun things to experience and do. We read most of the reviews and made our decision after talking with the manager. The home is equipped with new washer/dryer and other items of quality. It is clean and well organized.

We are looking forward to a return trip the same time next year to the N. Shore and will probably stay at Hale Ono again.

Return Guest-Relaxation in Paradise - quiet tropical beach location & pool fun

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Hale Ono a number of times over the past 7 years and this has been another peaceful time with my family and the owner who spends a lot of time here. I come over from time to time to work on Hale Ono to paint and do anything that maintains the quality of the home. A new pool motor was installed and it is in good condition. We pressure washed the home, decks, etc. and stained the pool deck, painted the house, fixed the doors, and updated the pool equipment and it is running well. It looks great. The kids that were here last week were in and out of the pool every day after being at Ke'e beach (best snorkeling).

We love to BBQ and sit on the beach in front of Hale Ono just to look out to the Saint Regis Hotel across Hanalei Bay. The ocean and Bali Hai Mountain views are stunning.

It is like working on a boat with all of the teak and epay wood. It is is sure worth it because of it is beautiful and rich looking. I particularly admire tropical woods and carvings that are throughout the home. When we leave the North Shore we miss all of the beaches that are so close to the home. It really makes it convenient to swim and snorkel at these spots because of the proximity.

This is one of our favorite vacation places to visit and we choose to come here over and over even though we have been to many other wonderful places in the world.
