We custom built Anahola Home in 2006 to provide an uninterrupted sense of calm, peace and luxury for our family and our friends.
Anahola Home sleeps six (can accommodate eight), but its generous 4,000 square feet of space, expansive yard and an endless beach beckoning with its rhythmic waves, just steps away from the front door, affords an escape from the noisy, crowded, humdrum world you left behind.
Sloping roofs, Hawaiian/Asian architecture, stucco exterior and ocean views from the living area, dining and front lanai, along with delightful gardens and lawns on its ½-acre setting make it unique among rental homes. It includes a master bedroom with king size bed and private bath, Jacuzzi, two guest bedrooms with queen & full size beds, ceiling fans, 3 1/2 baths, media room, tea room, sitting room, home office loft and a central deck.
Hardwood flooring, an incredible fully-equipped, custom gourmet kitchen with Sub Zero refrigerator and Travertine flooring, air conditioning and many more extras complement your paradise experience at Anahola Home.
While not enjoying the scenery and cool ocean breezes of Kauai, Mary is immersed in her art projects and the couple’s daughters, Jorgie, age 10, and Demi, age 5. While back home in Illinois, George practices law and shovels snow. The couple enjoys their three dogs, Alfie (an 80 pound Briard), Lucy (another big Briard), and Willie (a 10 pound mutt who bosses the bigger dogs around). Some of their other activities include, biking, reading, running, traveling with their daughters, and experimenting with new restaurants.
George Hampilos purchased this house in 2006
The inspiration for building this luxurious Hawaiian-style home on the island of Kauai lies with its owners, George and Mary. After traveling throughout various parts of the world, the owners concluded that Kauai offers everything they cherished most: beautiful scenery, excellent food, great weather, and an abundance of outdoor activities. Building a home in Kauai seemed like the right thing to do. And the fact that Mary and George live in the Midwest hardly deterred this visionary couple to build this house thousands of miles away. With Mary’s artistic flair, and George’s thirst for the next big challenge, both were able to build their dream get away.
The owners sought to combine and balance the building and landscaping architecture in the Hawaiian tradition, with the modern simplicity seen in contemporary homes. The couple rounded out the home with the appropriate blend of antique Asian and Hawaiian furnishings, along with state of the art appliances.
This was our first time in Kauai, and hopefully not our last. We were definitely spoiled staying in this beautiful home! It was so comfortable, and yet so elegant. There is certainly plenty of room to spread out. We kept choosing different places to sit and relax: in the kitchen, on the front porch, in the living room, in the courtyard, in the TV room, at the dining room table - lots of euchre there! We took many walks on the beach and around the neighborhood enjoying the fabulous views. It's in a great location and close to excellent restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing! We took a Blue Hawaiian Helicopter tour - what a great way to see the island! Also, went on Capt. Andy's sunset dinner cruise. By car, we visited Waimea Canyon, Wailua Falls, Kilawea Lighthouse, Spouting Horn, Hanalei Beach & pier, and Haena State Park. We really enjoyed the farmers' markets, and loved trying new tropical fruits! Longans, mangosteens, papaya, mountain apples, apple bananas, and sugarloaf pineapple were among our favorites. Our favorite breakfast was macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup at Kountry Kitchen. Our favorite lunch was at Puka Dogs. Our favorite happy hour was at Brenneckes. Our favorite dinners were at Duke's (upstairs) and The Dolphin. I really can't think of a better place to stay and enjoy Kauai! Thank you and mahalo for your hospitality.
This was my third stay in this beautiful home (lucky me!!!) I will never stay anywhere else on Kauai. The home is amazing. The landscaping is lush. Access to the beach is quick and easy and the beach is secluded. I literally cried when I had to leave. When we walked out the door, the most beautiful snail said "goodbye" near the driveway carrying an amazing sea shell on his back. Simply awesome. The home is quiet and private - we walked everyday and had no traffic to fight. Truly heaven on earth. Cannot wait to return . . . how about tomorrow?!?!
It has been over a year since my stay at this home, but I repeatedly come back to this website JUST to look at it. This house is more than I ever expected coming to the island. One of my favorite parts of the trip was the actual house; and Kauai is amazing, so that's saying a lot! My family and I felt completely welcomed and accommodated. The kitchen is breathtaking and fully stocked with everything you need. I personally loved the small things; the DVD's for the rainy day, the guide books to help us find our way around the island, and even the decor was so fun to just look at! I love the "private" beach just a hop skip and a jump (literally) from the house. We saw some of the most beautiful sunrises from there. I cannot expresses enough how perfect this rental was for a vacation spot. I am so excited at the thought of coming back someday!
It has been a year since my family and I visited the beautiful island of Kauai and we still talk about it all the time! This home offered a wonderful island retreat that really captured the beauty of the garden island. It was spacious, inviting and beautiful. I would recommend this home to anyone staying on the island and wish I was there right now!
My family was absolutely thrilled with this home and I would recommend this to anyone looking for an authentic experience in Kauai but also looking for extremely comfortable lodging. The location is perfect as it's almost the halfway point to the Napali coast line from the airport, close to Hanalei bay and Kapa'a. The home is right next to a secluded beach and the area is so quiet and peaceful. The floor plan of this home is excellent as each bedroom feels like you are staying in your own suite. The kitchen is world class and there is so much open space for enjoying time with family and friends including an incredible lanai. This home is a no brainer and I would be hard pressed to stay in a hotel with family / friends vs. paying less to have much more. I will never forget this amazing home and the experience my family had there. Staying here really complimented an amazing week on one of the most beautiful places in the world. Awesome place, awesome experience and the owner / caretaker did a really great job insuring our needs were taken care of. 5 star experience and don't let this home pass by if its available.
We have had the absolute pleasure of staying in George and Mary's property on 4 or 5 occasions. We were married in Kauai and have been back 7 more times. After discovering George and Mary's home we haven't stayed anywhere else. The house is large, stunning, comfortable, serene and exactly what we need when we want to get away from "it all." One of the most appealing aspects of the house is that it is very quiet. The house is located on a dead end road, so other than locals, a few other renters or the occasional tourist driving by to check things out, the area is quiet. If you lead busy lives, as we do, we so appreciate the ability to truly relax, and this is what we are able to do at this property. I could rave on lyrically, however I am sure you want to go and book your vacation - so book this property, you won't regret it.
