Kai Malie means calm sea. Anini is a lagoon like beach within an encircling reef. The house is located across from the short, sandy, flat beach access. Snorkeling and kayaking are excellent here. Wonderful for children also. It is very quiet--most people miss the beach accesses and continue to the public beach park. The park is a short walk if you wish to rent a windsurfer or partake of the fish truck. The homes and landscaping on the way are lovely. You can also walk the total length of the 2 mile long beach.
The house is comfortable for multiple couples or an extended family. The interior has a great room with dining for 8 and leather furniture. The kitchen is silestone counters with island and all electric appliances and fixtures. There is a surrounding deck with some views of the ocean. Each bedroom has aqueen bed, ceiling fan, louvred windows and sliding door to the wraparound deck. The covered porch is outfitted as an outdoor living room with sofa, two armchairs, lounge and hammock.
The grounds are extensive and tropically landscaped. There is also fun stuff like lawn games and fruit to pick. Restaurants, shopping and night life are available in Kilauea, Princeville, and Hanalei (all within 4 miles). Golf is at the famous Prince course and hiking is world class at the Na Pali Coast and Powerline trails.

Your house is everything and more than described! We are having a wonderful time. The beach here is absolutely pristine and the lush yard is heaven. We've spent a lot of time so far on the amazing porch - a perfect place to read all the books we never have a chance to get to at home.
We stayed in this wonderful home with our two sons, daughter-in-law and 2 grandsons. The house is roomy and a great place to call home base while enjoying the beauty of Kauai and also a great place to just hang out. The deck is huge, with wonderful views no matter where you decide to sit. It was safe and user-friendly for a family with small children.
Anini Beach was perfect for the family with calm waters, great snorkeling and lots of shade.
I hope we are able to return one day to Kauai and would love to enjoy this house again.
I stayed in this house for a week with my husband, 2 year old son and another couple with a 2 year old son. It was a great house for kids. There is a HUGE deck that surrounds the house and a gate (with a lock) to keep the kiddos from going down the stairs to the lawn. For the kids...the house came with one pack n play, some kid books and some toys.
Unfortunately the weather was not so good during our trip, it rained every day and the beach across the street was rough, which we heard was rare. We still enjoyed ourselves. The kids LOVED the two ducks that live in the pond next to the house and chasing the chickens. We also found a great kids playground in Princeville.
The house came fully equipped in the kitchen with a nice grill on the back porch, but know that there are only very basic ingrediants (salt, pepper, ect.) to cook with.
The loft was used a bedroom while we were there so the kids could have their own room, which worked out ok. The loft is big and the sleeper sofa decently comfortable, but it is very open to the living room and gets a lot of light.
We used the bikes from the house and rode around the Anini Beach area-- Beautiful!!
Overall, this is a great house and we would come back again...
Anyone with young children will enjoy this house. We all lived on the decks that surround the cottage. The beach is perfect for children, especially at low tide. The reef was a good place for the adults to see a variety of fish and sea turtles. The owners have thoughtfully provided for everything a guest might need. We felt as if we had our own private beach. The surrounding area is also lovely with every amenity and sightseeing within a short distance.
