About My Hawaii Vacation

I was blessed to experience Kauai as a child. Spending summers here shaped my life and love of nature and the desire to become one with the ocean. My dream was to raise my own family here to experience the same peace and joy, beach and surfing. I held that dream close to my heart, and focused on this goal until it became reality. I never imagined creating a vacation rental property, but as my family grew and the economy changed I was encouraged to share this special location with others who appreciate and want to experience this lifestyle. Knowing that this experience will shape the dreams of other families, creating lasting memories, that kind of goodness is priceless and much more than the statement of a vacation rental.

Why My Hawaii Vacation chose Kauai

What makes this house unique

Rare 1 bedroom on waters edge. Most homes along the coast line as large homes accommodating a larger number of guest. This home is just the right size one to four guest. Make sure you know your groups expectations, if you require pools and maids and air conditioning this is not that kind of accommodations. Our pool is the ocean and the trade winds are our AC. This cottage is comparable to a cabin at the lakes.

Haena Love Shack-Exceeds Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The setting and views of the ocean have to be the best on Kauai!! With only a few steps to the water this home is a true tropical paradise.Nick the owner was very informative and has a great attitude and has thought of every thing you will need.I would recommend this property to anyone who can get here!! We hiked the trails at the end of the road the the views are spectacular. We saw countless whales , sea turtules , and Dolphins. The snorkiling was amazeing. You can not go wrong renting this home.

Perfect get away on the north end

  • 5 of 5

We loved our honeymoon stay at the Love Shack. Great view - sunrise in bed? Yes PLEASE. Claw foot tub was great. This is a cabin, not a luxury home, and since it's near the beach and salt water, it will look a little more "worn in" than the pictures suggest. It was clean, comfortable, and fresh. Loved having such large windows out on the beach. The air blew in the slats and into the house and kept us very cool. Kitchen has everything you need to cook. The property manager was onsite when we arrived and very friendly. They keep the place well manicured outside. Love, love, love it.

Hawaii is always pricier than the mainland so I'm not sure what all the fuss is about with regard to restaurant prices being too high - we expected it. Loved our coffee every morning in town and trying out the nice restaurants (wide range of price ranges). Hanalei Coffee Company and Bar Acuda were fantastic. Wish the weather had cooperated more for snorkeling but that's just the time of year that we went and a great excuse to come back. We WILL be back.

Ditto to the comments about leaving the Love Shack and going to another condo - we left and went to a nearby resort. While a resort has it's advantages, we definitely missed having our own home to stay in with incredible views and the chance to explore.

Love the Love Shack!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our honeymoon stay at The Love Shack! It was as beautiful as advertised. We could only get 4 nights because it was booked, so we spent our last 3 nights at a condo in Princeville feeling downgraded and sad. Okay, well it was Kauai so we still had a wonderful time, but my only regret was not being able to stay there the entire week. It was a hundred times better than a condo. The bathtub was divine! The views are unbeatable. The rainbows---wow!!!! It is a bit funky for the price, so be prepared for that...like they said it's more like an old cabin than a swanky modern house. We got that it's a difficult location to keep a home in tip top condition. The drawer in the kitchen didn't work properly and many of the windows no longer open or close. But these things were minor compared to the beauty of the setting. In 4 days I think we saw about 6 people on the beach.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time there, the weather was a bit wet and windy, but we had a great time. Love the shack, I cried when I saw the view from the lounge etc... it was soo nice the view from every room.. The beach and views were just breath taking. The house itself had everything you could want, neat and clean. Highly recommend it. Great memories made that will last forever.

Great stay in a Great place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for his retirement gift from his work. When we Arrived and walked in I literally cried! the view was amazing! With all the big windows facing the ocean, and so close! The inside is perfect and homey, the bed is very comfortable, and claw foot tub was so comfortable , I had an amazing bubble bath soak looking out towards the ocean. We had everything you could possibly need. We had the beach almost to ourselves. We walked to the coffee shop close by every morning. We would highly recommend the dream of a home to stay!

Amazing beachfront home!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! My husband and I stayed here the last 3 nights of our 2 week vacation and wished we could have been here the whole time. You have to travel a total of 5 small, one lane bridges to get to the property (which means no tour buses can reach this side of the island) and therefore you get a genuine, non-touristy vibe. It is right off the highway, but still feels perfectly secluded.

The beach (which is literally 10 steps away) feels like your own since the only people we saw were a few locals walking their dogs. We stayed in February so with super high surf in winter, it's not a perfect swimming area directly outside the house, but Hanalei Bay is only 4 miles away and Tunnels Beach is even closer for other swimming options.

You would definitely need to stock up on food (we did at the Foodland in Princeville) because there is really only one restaurant in walking distance and it's pricey. But the home is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare your own meals (even a nice propane grill). They also had a lovely gift basket waiting for us when we arrived with some local treats and fruits.

This property far and away exceeded our expectations and if we ever get back to Kauai we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Please know what your expecting prior to booking and share that with our friendly agents to determine if this is the place you are dreaming of. This beach side home is comparable to a lake cabin on the mainland. It has a rural rustic feel, the paint on the exterior is a never ending challenge; to moist to paint; to close to water to stay perfect~ don't judge a book by its cover~ the home is maintained consistently and cleaned on the day of your arrival inside and out.
