When you read through books about Kauai, you will find that the majority will focus on the N. shore exactly where this house is located.
It has something for everyone!
Schuchter (2006) “Perfect Days on Kauai” book gives you examples of the perfect day in paradise and the real feel of Hawaii.
Can you imagine crossing over one lane bridges and having unspoiled coastal beaches with some of the best reefs which are actually footsteps from your doorstep at our home? You can have this at Hale Haena.
Our home is 100 paces to the sand. It is a privately deeded path. You can hear the sea breezes and see the ocean from your three lanais.
This is the high end district that is cottage homes on the beach. There are houses just a few doors down that rent for thousands a night.
The beach in front of Hale Haena is sandy but there is coral which is great for snorkeling (see the satellite picture).
Every day will be different on the beach according to the tide and time of the year.
All the beaches on the north shore have their own personalities. Visit them all.
You have all the amenities you will need. Enjoy the manicured landscaped yard with local Hawaiian flowers that are beautiful to see and very fragrant. The kitchen is well stocked and open to the living area.
The views are spectacular! From one lanai you can see the ocean on the east horizon and if you turn to the west you will see the beautiful mountain views. The hedges in the back give you privacy to enjoy dinner on the lanai. The lanai off the BR upstairs you can sip a glass of wine and watch the sunset.
What more could you ask for? Location?
Location, Location, Location-
Kauai, 23 Themed Itineraries Lonely Planet 2009 informs the reader that the best scenic drive is “to the end of the road.” That is where we are. You can explore wet caves, the best snorkeling right by the house. Don’t forget to bring your hiking shoes because just above Ke’e Beach is the start of the a trail that will take you to the 100 foot Hanakapi’ai Falls, Napali Coast- Kalalau Trail.
Our home is a sensory delight where you are embraced by the gentle trade winds, enchanted by the fragrant flora, lulled to sleep by the waves running over the outer reefs and thrilled by the colors of the rising and setting sun.
FYI… Make sure you rent from someone who has a TVR permit and from a reputable company (licensed management company).
Kauai Stories Life on the Garden Island told by Kauai’s people (Brown, 2012) describes Aloha is what your heart feels like when you share. Aloha is love, It’s the absence of fear. It’s a lifestyle, a way to live. Aloha is really two words: alo means to be in the presence of: ha is your breath. So aloha means taking the time to be present with someone, to take a deep breath, to play some music, to enjoy your life. What does this mean for you? We know you will enjoy your stay at Hale Haena and enjoy the breath of life, family, and the time you have with others!
Haena, Through the Eyes of the Ancestors book (Andrade, Carlos, 2009) tells the old ancient stories of Haena. Haena, defined as intense ha (breath), is the sun’s exhalation as it first appears in the morning on the eastern horizon and then again at the last expiration of light as it sets in the west. What does this mean for you staying at Hale Haena? The most fabulous sunrises and sunsets just steps out your door to the sand and ocean!
