About Linda Saunders

We decided to purchase this home within hours of first visiting Kauai.

The ocean and mountain views, plus the privacy, were breathtaking, unlike anything we'd found before. We built the pool and spa and added landscaping. We enjoy this home ourselves as much as possible, living between here and Ohio which is where we are from. Since it is our home, we take special care with upkeep and maintenance and are intimately familiar with all of its features and amenities.

Linda Saunders purchased this house in 2000

Why Linda Saunders chose Kalihiwai

We loved this location because of its privacy and beautifully landscaped grounds and views.

Also because we can access all of the North shore beaches within minutes. Our favorite beach is Secret Beach which is accessed right off our same road - Kalihiwai.

We are not too far from Kapaa and Lihue (airport and main town) either, 30-45 minutes.

What makes this house unique

We mostly enjoy the views and the privacy. We love watching the whales and the albatross in season. Hours of relaxation and fun enjoying the pool, spa, and new hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having stayed on all of the major islands (Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Lanai), this location and this home remains our favorite vacation spot after coming yearly to Hawaii for a full decade. Located on a hilltop that is totally secluded, the views of the ocean are panoramic. The house is simply a treasure. Beautifully appointed and with a well thought out design that allows the trade winds to gently blow through the whole property. The location is perfect for setting up to hit all the north shore beaches easily along with Kilauea and Hanalei, before returning back to the soothing pool and Jacuzzi in the late afternoon. Every detail has been taken care of in the house. It is clear that the owner has spent a lot of time thinking about every possible need for all types of guests.



For the perfect pool and (easy to reach) beach vacation, we haven't found a better home. This was our 2nd visit to Mia Huna and we will certainly be back.

Great stay...

  • 5 out of 5
We travel to Hawaii frequently (3rd trip this year!) and have been at numerous hotels and homes in Kauai - north and south. This was a last minute trip we squeezed in before our girls started school and how fortunate we were to find this house. We typically have no agenda other than to eat good food, relax, spend time w/eachother and surf - and this house was perfect - away from it all yet close enough to hop into Kilauea for a pizza or some poke at the fish market. The girls loved the pool (hard to find a private pool in Kauai) - our younger daughter even had a sleepover in the guest/pool house w a friend who also happened to be on the island on holiday. Everything you need is in the house so all you need to do is show up. Linda was extremely accommodating and super easy to work with - especially when the recent hurricanes threatened to change our schedule some. We will come back!

The Perfect Honeymoon

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Mia Huna Estate from July 19th to July 26th. We traveled to Hawaii from Cleveland, OH for our honeymoon. When we arrived at Mia Huna, we were instantly taken back by the beauty that this estate has to offer. We were so excited to see what the week had in store for us. The house was very nicely decorated and extremely clean. It was also stocked with everything we could possibly need for our vacation (kitchen appliances, towels, sheets, books, ocean and pool gear, etc!). We spent a lot of time exploring the island during our week on Kauai, doing everything from hiking and taking a boat ride to horseback riding, and even a helicopter ride. The island is so naturally beautiful, sometimes I needed to tell myself that I wasn't having a dream and something this magnificent actually exists. If we weren't out exploring the island, we were lounging by the amazing salt water pool at Mia Huna or enjoying the breathtaking view of the ocean from either hot tub (both have an unbelievable view!). The wrap around porch also allows for some outstanding views of the water and mountains both, and is especially great for viewing the pink & yellow sunsets we had every night and the frequent rainbow. To say we had an amazing honeymoon is an understatement. We could not have picked a better location for our vacation, and we would highly recommend the Mia Huna to anyone. We are already asking our family and friends when they want to join us on our next trip so they can experience an unbelievable week at the Mia Huna like we did.

Fabulous Secluded and Private Home!

  • 5 out of 5
Our return to the "Garden Island" was just fabulous! We enjoyed our stay with dear friends and showed them the island as we had remembered it from seven years ago. It's beauty more magnificent then we had remembered from the past!
The house was private and perfect! We especially noticed how well maintained it was and that the owners had paid attention to every detail to make our stay wonderful. We were so secluded and enjoyed the beautiful ocean views, star gazing at night from the hot tub and great times in the pool. We can't thank them enough for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home and we can't wait to come back!
Mahalo Nui Loa!

Mia Huna is paradise !

  • 5 out of 5
This was a Mother Daughter trip(4 moms/4daughters). It was a trip of a lifetime. Mia Huna was a dream come true for all the mothers and daughters. Every detail in the main house to the guest/pool house was fabulous! The property was beautiful with ocean and mountain views from every angle. The palm tree lined driveway to the beautiful landscaped property, just feels like you are in Paradise!! The owner has every kitchen appliance to cook at home in her gourmet kitchen available. Then there is the beautiful pool and not one but two hot tubs. It was a trip of a lifetime and we thank the owner for sharing her perfect Hawaiian vacation home with us. She has everything available to meet your vacation needs!! I highly recommend this rental home for anyone looking for a trip of a lifetime! Rent this property ... You will have memories to last Forever!

Mia Huna, perfect getaway

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I took our two adult children and their significant others to Kauai for a week, to, among other things celebrate my 54th birthday.
The pictures do not do the property justice. Cameras cannot capture the views, wrap a round deck and all window exterior with any accuracy
Besides the beautiful property, the way the owner has equipped it for a vacation on Kauai was a great addition. Beach towels, mats, and chairs are all available to use as well as snorkel gear for all sizes and shapes. Anini beach, not 5 minutes away is an amazing beach. We saw turtles, (only a few feet away, tons of fish) Secret beach, again just 5 minutes away is great for sunbathing, especially if you want privacy.
Linda the owner, Kim the manager were a pleasure to work with. We are already trying to plan our next visit.
On the meticulously manicured 2.5 acres is a stream, and as a bonus for the week we were there when a baby albatross and its mother were there.
just an FYI to first time Kauai visitors, the north side is where you want to be. South shore is OK...but next time we wont even bother to travel past the lighthouse. Oh did I mention the view includes the Kileauea lighthouse?
Run, don't walk to this gem, its worth every penny.

Everything you want and more!

Great for everyone!

We booked this property for our 30th anniversary. My wife and I spent the entire week there and it was one of the best, most relaxing vacations ever. One of the best parts of this house, and there are plenty, is the front yard with the 2 lounge chairs. We spent almost every night in these chairs, watching the sunset, looking at the stars and noticed the clouds at dusk making a show of there own. A bottle of wine and a nice evening, you will be totally relaxed. I almost fell asleep one evening until a small rain storm reminded me where I was. In the morning, when you wake up in the master bedroom you have a view looking right out to the ocean. We noticed that most everywhere you go in the house, looking through the windows is like looking at a beautifully framed picture, words cannot describe the views. The kitchen has everything you need. We only went out for dinner twice and cooked breakfast and the rest of our dinners at the house. If you’re up for a short hike, secret beach is just a short walk away. We hiked the first day we were there, it was beautiful. We were also impressed with the little details that the owner does not overlook. We decided to hike to Hanakapiai Falls one of the days we were there. Every review we read mentioned that you need to take a lot of water! Well we didn’t have anything to carry water in, but at the house, the owner has provided some backpacks for just such an occasion.

The house also has a perfect location for other activities. The golf courses just minutes away, restaurants, beaches, shopping, you don’t see any of it or hear anything at the house, but nothing is far away! I would highly recommend this house for couples just wanting to enjoy a quiet time to themselves as well as families as the house and additional pool house have plenty of space. One last thing that I know not everyone will get to enjoy, there was a young Albatross that was nesting in the yard that we enjoyed watching every time we looked out the bedroom window. We would watch as he would spread and flap his wings. As we understand it, he should be flying by mid July and will leave the grounds. Another lasting memory of this beautiful property.
