Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Anini Beach - Anini Kai

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Lanai, Fruit Grove, Ocean View

Anini Kai, is a luxury beach home located on the North Shore of Kaua'i (TVNCU#-4219 & SP-2011-13). It is spacious, comfortably furnished and well-maintained. All bedrooms have a cable TV with wireless internet throughout. The home is a family-friendly retreat only 100 steps from scenic Anini Beach and Reef. The largest reef in the Hawaiian Island chain shelters Anini Beach providing fantastic swimming and snorkeling conditions, gentle wave action, and year-around warm water. Large waves can be found a short distance east of the home for those who surf. Guests find it easy to relax at this location and should feel motivated to explore the neighborhood, beautiful sandy beach and shallow water features of the inner reef zone. Anini Kai has its own grove, spice plants and large back yard. Fruit trees include orange, mango, starfruit, grapefruit, lime, lemon, lychee and banana. Tropical foliage and flowers enclose the entire estate.

The nearby surrounding area away from the home is a kaleidoscope of world-renowned beaches, surfer paradise, tropical gardens, wildlife sanctuaries, historic villages and world class golf courses. The resort community of Princeville is about four miles west of Anini Kai and has a grocery store and numerous other avant-garde shops, galleries and restaurants. Stables for horseback riding as well as sites for zip-lining through tropical trees may be found on the way to Princeville. Hanalei Village is about seven miles northwest of Anini Kai and is one of the coolest places on earth. It exhibits stylish boutiques, jewelry and curiosity gift shops as well as restaraunts offering everything from fine seafood cuisine to pizza and burgers. Hanalei is the epicenter of the North Shore and its bay and beaches are perfect for surfing, sun-bathing, cycling, kayaking, paddle-boarding, photography and sight-seeing.

A short distance south-easterly from Anini Kai is the town of Kilauea and popular Kilauea Lighthouse. The lighthouse is a National Historic Site and has amazing views of the ocean, telescopes for whale watching, souvenier shop, botanical garden and sea-bird sanctuary.

Windsurfing and deep sea fishing are available to experience a short distance down the road from Anini Kai at Anini Beach Park. A favorite and unique activity at Anini Beach is to snorkel with the sea turtles and to explore for seahorses and wide variety of colorful reef fish!

Anini Kai is a County approved vacation rental with number-TVNC#4219P. The home is located on Anini Road and is the second house on the left as you enter the primary area of the Anini Beach homes enclave.

John is a Registered Professional Geologist and Principal Owner of a General Contracting Firm, Oil Company and Real-Estate Holding Company head-quartered in Spokane, WA. John holds degrees in Geology and Philosophy. Shannon is retired and keeps herself occupied taking care of the family accounts and holdings. After having had traveled and worked extensively throughout South America and Europe during the last 20 years we found Anini Kai on the North Shore of Kauai in 2009. Following a number of extended vacations at Anini Kai we jumped at the opportunity of purchasing the property from a long-time friend. We have found that the Spirit of the people of Kaua'i, the spectacular flora, fauna, scenery and beaches are unmatched by anywhere else in the world. We and our children love to visit Kaua'i at every opportunity and cherish everything the Garden Isle has to offer. We believe our home, neighborhood and beach allow the perfect blend of privacy, colorful gardens, climate and sporting activities to allow oneself to easily adjust to the peaceful pace of the Island and Aloha Spirit.

John F. Wark purchased this house in 2013

Grab a surf board, sunbathe, snorkel, cycle or shell-enjoy everything Anini Kai and its beach location have to offer. The home is well-suited to the simple pleasures of quietly taking time to read a good book on the lanai or contemplating the beauty of a Hibiscus flowers in the backyard. There is nothing more exciting to watch than a new swell of waves entering the North Shore and the grand parade of professional and local surfers answering the call. Anini Beach is perfect for people of any age whether alone, a couple, or family with young or older children. Our children have always enjoyed their vacations at Anini Kai and are always wanting to get back to this Island retreat and its lifestyle. Anini Kai is the perfect home and setting for short and long-term vacations and is located on one of the most enticing beaches and reef complexes of the Islands and entire world. Walk 100 steps-enjoy Paradise!

A short sandy path between two beautiful beachfront estates allows access to the beach and ocean. An outdoor shower is available for use at the rear of the home. Following beach and exploring activities come home to lounge on the spacious lanai then make a tropical meal in our fully-stocked kitchen or prepare an outdoor feast on the BBQ (don't forget to pick spices to flavor your meals from the backyard).

The home and grounds are always immaculately manicured and kept by our friend and Property Manager (Phil) who lives with his wife in Kapa'a. Phil is always willing to answer guest questions and provide guidance for the house.

Great vacation rental

What a wonderful experience to be able to stay in this roomy, airy, comfortable home. This home had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We made many of our own meals - the kitchen is very well stocked with cookware, dishes, and utensils and there is a great gas grill. The beds/bedrooms were very comfortable with ample closet and storage space. A washer and dryer are provided which helps a lot. There is ample seating space both in the home, on the lanai, and on the carport area for you to relax and enjoy. Numerous beach toys for young and old are provided, as well as some beach chairs etc. We stayed here for 2 weeks with family which included a 2 1/2 year old. While the home is close to what can be a busy road, there is a huge back yard and we spent a lot of time out there with our granddaughter. She became the main "chicken chaser" for the 2 weeks. Almost right across the road is a path to a wonderful sheltered beach which we all enjoyed. Out from this beach and then down to the west a bit was some great snorkeling. Everything was so convenient - from going to the beach to getting to other places on the island. The home was very clean. Best of all, the owners are wonderful to work with. Thanks John and Shannon for the experience of a lifetime!

As Advertised...an Island Paradise

The house was everything we were looking for and more. Though the home changed owners right before our trip, we had absolutely no problems with the transition, our arrival at the house, or anything during the entire stay. Simply a perfect trip.

The house is well equipped...stocked kitchen, snorkel gear, sand toys (our 5 year-old's favorite part), fast internet access, good views (look out the back for waterfalls on the cliffs) and plenty of space for the whole family to get a break at the end of the day.

Location provides great access to Hanalei and points East and South, but many days we found ourselves just walking across the street to hang out on what felt like our own private beach.

The only thing preventing me from giving the rental an excellent rating was the road noise we experienced. And despite my comments below, WE WOULD DEFINITELY RENT THIS HOUSE AGAIN. The house is located on a dead-end road with great beach access that is used frequently by locals. This gives you the real, local Kauai experience, but during our first week we experienced lots of road noise late into the evening with cars heading to and from homes along the road and the beach access and campground. I'm guessing this is very hit or miss and that we were there during one of those times when noise can be worse. IT DID NOT AFFECT OUR VACATION AT ALL, but its something that renters should be aware of. The roosters at odd times of the morning are also part of the experience, but take some time to get used to.

Overall, a fantastic experience.

This place is everything you want it to be. Beautiful inside and out, with a wonderful front porch to drink coffee on in the morning while reading in peaceful quiet, or having a family dinner of fresh grilled ahi tuna steaks in the evening. It truly is only a few steps from Anini beach, which is somewhat of a secret on the part nearest the house. Just walk a bit towards the actual Anini beach park near the boat dock, and you can snorkel out within minutes and see sea turtles and other beautiful fish. As for the house, the kitchen is great, the dining area wonderful for meals or playing cards. The bedrooms are spacious, especially the upstairs, the bathrooms in great working order with plenty of hot water for showers with just the right pressure. The carport area is great for grilling (the Weber grill is wonderful), and hanging out to view the mountains and the well-kept lawn, with all of the plants and trees labeled meticulously. The only downfall would be no air-conditioning which Midwesterners from the mainland are accustomed to, and there are only two fans. If I go back, I will purchase another rotating fan from Costco for the bedroom that doesn't have one. Overall, this place is an outstanding place for anyone to stay. We had my wife and two children, my sister, her husband, and their two children, and grandma. We never felt cramped as there was plenty of room for everyone. Thank you!

excellent beach rental

The beach house was clean, modern appliances with a good floor plan for our multigenerational party of 7. 100 steps to isolated beach protected by reef. Great for young and old swimmers. We want stay longer next year. Great rental price for a multi mllion dollar home. We went to the bar and area "The descendants" was filmed. We would definitely recommend it. The only problem was the mesquitoes. We had a great time. Kauai is a photographers dream but it still holds its small town charm (Hanalei). Visit many beaches and botanical gardens. Aloha.

The house was very clean, had everything we needed and was perfect for our family of 6. We enjoyed breakfast on the beautiful porch every morning. The house is close to many wonderful beaches .
Although there are TV's in every bedroom and the living room our family never turned them on. When we had down time, we read on the porch, played games or just relaxed. A wonderful vacation.
Thank you very much.

Our home is 100 steps away from pristine Anini Beach and Reef. The beach and reef are accessible via a sandy path from the house. When exploring, short interesting trips include traveling north on the Kuhio Hwy towards Princeville and Hanalei. Along the route you'll find horseback riding, zip-lining, fruit and vegetable stands, helicopter rentals, restaurants, golf courses and fantastic scenery. Princeville is about four miles by road from Anini Kai and is a splendid well manicured resort community containing fine hotels, golf courses, tennis courts, shopping mall, galleries, restaurants, grocery store, fuel station, post office, library and bank. Sunset at the St. Regis Hotel is a must for anybody visiting the Island. Three miles past Princeville is the historic town of Hanalei, which is a mecca for surfers, musicians, artists, movie people, tourists and locals. Hanalei is an ideal place for browsing and shopping for sports wear, art & jewelry, ukuleles, snorkel gear, bike rental, groceries and food. The town of Hanalei offers a wide array of restaurants serving everything from fine seafood cuisine to pizza and Bubba Burgers. Hanalei Bay is wonderful setting for watching or participating in surf tournaments, learning how to surf, kayaking, picnicking and just hanging-out. To the south of Anini Kai is the Kilauea Lighthouse and surrounding bird sanctuary. This site is one of the most popular in Kauai and has amazing views of the ocean, gardens and wildlife. Windsurfing and deep sea fishing are available down Anini Road at Anini Beach Park. Activities that may be enjoyed a short distance of the house include, swimming and snorkeling with sea turtles in the protected reef area of Anini Beach; whale watching; fishing; photography; paddle boarding; cycling; shelling and world class golf.
