Retreat from the cares of the world in this tastefully furnished, one-bedroom, one-bath, oceanfront home.
Punana Aloha, which means 'Love Nest' in Hawaiian, is a one-bedroom, one-bath hideaway on incomparable Anini Beach. Constructed of natural cedar throughout and boasting a wood-burning fireplace, the cottage is the perfect choice for a vacation to simply 'get away from it all.' Restricted to a maximum of two guests, the cottage is ideal for honeymoons or anniversaries.
Located on Kauai's verdant North Shore, Anini Beach is a haven for the traveler who wants to experience the unspoiled natural beauty of Hawaii. Protected by a large outer reef, the quiet waters of Anini are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, and sunning. Follow Anini Road almost to the spot where it dead ends at Anini Stream and you will find Punana Aloha on a beautifully landscaped half acre of land fronting the ocean. The ocean view is unobstructed, and your toes will touch the sand of the beach less than 75 yards from the front door.
Features include 896 square feet of living area with two covered lanais, two reclining chairs in living room, built-in desk/office area, daybed, comfortable king-sized bed in bedroom, full bathroom with tub/shower, ceiling fans, washer and dryer, telephones, large charcoal barbeque/smoker, chaise lounges, and beach chairs.
The fully-equipped kitchen contains solid oak cabinets with a large pantry, a four-burner gas range with oven, 20' refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, six-foot bar/serving counter/cooking island, coffee maker, rice cooker/steamer, toaster, blender, mixer, etc.
The living room has a home entertainment center which includes a 27-inch color cable TV and a VCR/DVD player.
We provide FREE HIGH SPEED INTERNET ACCESS (DSL), FREE UNLIMITED LONG DISTANCE CALLING (within the USA), CALLER ID, 3 WAY CALLING, AND *69 (enabling you to dial the last number who called you). There is a cordless phone in the kitchen area, and one more in the bedroom. The kitchen phone also has an answering machine.
Punana Aloha is fully permitted as a transient vacation rental by the County of Kauai. Our Non Conforming Use Certificate number is 1254.
Nakea Kauai Vacation rentals offers three properties for rent, a one bedroom ocean bluff condo at Sealodge in Princeville (Kai Nani), a three bedroom beachfront home (Hale Kai) and a one bedroom beachfront cottage (Punana Aloha). The latter two are both located at the secluded end of incredible Anini Beach. All three properties are owned and lovingly cared for by Bob Nakea and his wife, Dotty. Bob is a native Hawaiian whose family's roots on Kauai go back to the 1800's, and Dotty is a mainland transplant who has been in the islands for over 48 years. No attention to detail on the properties is overlooked, and each home is furnished with the comfort of its guests foremost in mind.
** In 2009, Dotty passed on, but Bob and their daughter Suzi, who was also born and raised in the islands, continue to care for these properties and their valued guests.

In the North Shore's idyllic setting you can: swim, surf; sunbathe, scuba dive or snorkel, wind surf (with rental boards and lessons available at Anini Beach Park), go shore fishing, book a deep water charter; beach comb, go horseback riding at nearby stables, hike the island's awesome trails, enjoy gourmet dining, work out at the Princeville Spa (featuring daily and weekly memberships giving access to the latest exercise equipment, large lap pool, Jacuzzi, wet and dry saunas, and numerous aerobics, yoga, aqua -size and weight training classes), pamper yourself with a facial treatment or full body massage, whale watch, take a Na Pali Coast boat tour or a sunset sailing cruise in Hanalei Bay, book a helicopter tour of fabulous Waimea Canyon, play tennis, enjoy worldclass golfing, drive around the island and take in the sights, or just simply lie back and bask in the simple glory of being in one of earth's most naturally beautiful and peaceful places. We will be happy to assist you in your activity planning. Just let us know what you would like to do!
Punana Aloha's location almost at the dead end of Anini Road, where there is only a single row of homes along the beach, means that our guests enjoy quiet and privacy not found along most of the rest of Anini . The protecting reef (one of the largest in Hawaii) assures that the waves break far out and not on the shore, and the calm shoreline and shallow waters make the area in front of the house ideal for swimming and snorkeling most of the year (except during periods of high winter surf).

I almost don't want to do this review and let others know of this hidden gem on the north side of Kauai. Looking for a beautiful, quiet beachfront property where the loudest noises are the many types of birds that live here? This is a beautiful quiet beach, with a large reef resulting in a calm waterfront, which you can see constantly from the large front window of the cottage. This is a place to go and not feel the urge that you must do something-just being here is enough!
We have been to Kauai several times as it is our favorite Island - however, staying in this 'home' was the best experience we have had. Clean, bright, comfortable with everything you need to feel 'at home' - thank you for making our stay just what we needed - an oasis from chaos - snorkeled, kayaked with the sea turtles - unbelievably cathartic and calming!
Thank you for letting us stay at your beach home. It was exactly as advertised. The very open floor plan made for a lot of space. And the view is magnificent. We were able to watch whales jump from the water while sitting and having morning coffee! And it was a real bonus to have masks/snorkels/fins for us to use at the beach. We really hated to leave.
We stayed at this property for 1 week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rental was clean and very well maintained. It had all the amenities of a modern day home plus a few herbs and sauces in the house in the event that you cook. It is very private with a stunning view of the ocean. The owners were more than helpful with things to do and where to go. We will stay there on our next trip to Kauai and would recommend this to friends and relatives.
Great cottage, private and set back from the road but with a beautiful view of the water.
Great beach, with the waves breaking on the outer reef, so the water is very gentle for swimming in the summer. Good beach for walking too.
If you like hotels and hotel bars serving drinks with little umbrellas and alcohol served in big pineapples while Bob Marley and Jimmy Buffet music plays in the background for 14 hours a day---this cottage is not for you.
If you want a private cottage on a beautiful, and quite private, beach---this cottage is highly recommended.
The cottage is well appointed with all of the essential items you need for your stay, including cooking and cleaning essentials that many rental units do not have. Thank you Bob and Suzi.
This cottage is just right for two people, and if you need to visit a hotel bar once or twice during your stay for a tropical drink, there are a few nearby that are easy to get to.
We both recommend the Punana Aloha Cottage.
Mahalo nui loa, Bob and Suzi.
Kevin and I spent our honeymoon at Bob's Aloha cottage on Anini. We could not have imagined better accommodations! The house was in an amazing location and was clean and well kept. The calm, warm waters of Anini beach were just steps away! Bob was a joy to work with, professional and so incredibly hospitable. We had no problems getting the keys and following instructions given by Bob and his directions from the airport were great too! Oh and we just returned from our trip and Bob already mailed our security deposit back - so speedy and on top of it he is!
All and all, I would HIGHLY recommend staying at Bob's cottage to anyone. We will be telling all our family and friends and will be back to visit for sure...maybe for a second honeymoon!
Aloha and Mahalo!
