Ideal for adventure seekers who want the perfect backdrop for hiking, scuba diving, snorkeling Tunnels beach, and those seeking romance, perfect for honeymooners or celebrating milestone anniversaries. Special birthdays or Girlfriends only trips; whatever your occasion this location and accommodation fits the criteria (rare to find). The property was created in a loving spirit of aloha. Filling the desire to have the sand between your toes, while filling your eyes and heart with mother nature’s best work. Birds singing, flowers blooming, rainbows beaming.

Please discuss with your group what type of stay they are expecting to insure everyone agrees, before securing accommodations.

Most of our guests enjoy staying close to home, immersed in the ultimate Hawaiian Paradise. Bonus all without loading up the car, wasting precious vacation hours searching for the perfect spot. You can see dolphins dancing along the shore, Whales breaching (during migration season Late October thru March-April) and many other amazing creatures (under the rainbows) right out your window.

Favorite activities include walking on the beach, fishing, scuba or snorkel, swim, chilling with a book or go out for a day of local excursions such as zip lining, horseback riding, tennis, World Class Golfing and hiking the Napali Coast at the nearby “End of the Road” on the North Shore Road. Only 3 scenic miles to the infamous town of Hanalei, where puff the magic dragon is still seen today while strolling Hanalei bay, and making your way to the Hanalei Pier.

Once your reservation is secure we will provide you with valuable planning tools to insure you have the best and most current information available through our Complimentary Concierge Services, offered on multiple islands.

About Christine Larson

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 Christine Larson chose Haena

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.

We loved this sweet cottage in paradise. Was our private escape on a beautiful beach where we could fall asleep each night to the waves. Great location. Easy walk up and down the gorgeous beach. Hanalei is a short drive where lots of restaurants are located. But we also loved to cook in the fully stocked cottage kitchen. Was very hard to leave, especially to face the snow and cold back home!!

Not so secluded

  • 3 of 5

This property offers fabulous views, but the seclusion that the photo suggests is but an illusion. What you don’t see on the other side is that the house is about ten feet away from the only main road in this area, which gets quite busy with local and tourist travel at different times of the day. So if you try to relax on the small porch, especially in the evenings, you face a steady stream of headlights out to mention noise that even the roar of the ocean doesn’t cover. Not quite our version of paradise. Nor is the fact that the house is in serious need of maintenance, especially on the outside. The porch made me want to get out a power washer and a paintbrush. The picnic table that now takes up half of the porch is also not a good addition. Not a comfortable outdoor chair to be found.

That said, we did enjoy our stay despite these factors. The house is well appointed on the inside, with comfortable beds and a fully functioning kitchen, in which you can easily cook your meals, if you so desire. We did, and really enjoyed doing so. We got a lot of wonderful fish from the Dolphin Fish market and great produce from the farmers’ market. And it’s not far to go into town. In that respect, the location is certainly convenient. We had little need to sample the local restaurants.

You should also know that while the beach in front of the house is stunningly beautiful, you cannot swim there, at least at this time of the year. The surf and the undertow is way too strong. This was also the case on the other beaches on the north shore. No snorkeling at Tunnels Beach, alas. Kids running their ATVs on the beach also did not contribute to peace and quietude.

In short, this house is not what it seems from the pictures, unlike the one we are staying in right now on Molokai. It is a fairly unique property for Kaua‘i, from what we can tell, but not really what we were looking for. But for someone who doesn’t really mind what were serious downsides for us, this property may well be ideal. At least you get a nice gift basket, which we appreciated.

House well appointed and very comfortable. Location right on the beach can't be beat. Owners also provide amenities like fruit basket, cookies, washer/dryer & shower & bath supplies. We hope to return.

Not as private as it appears!

  • 3 of 5

I am an easy grader, really, but we experienced something that forced me to give this property only 3 stars.

To start out: this property is an absolute dream! This is the cutest, nicest, little cottage on the most beautiful beach ever. You look out and see the waves and hear them as you drift off to sleep. The manager is as nice as can be, and they leave you a wonderful welcome basket and help you to arrange anything you want to do for as long as you are on the island.

Ok, now the not so great part. The cottage is right next to the main highway, and is exposed to car lights and some road noise, very minor, just wanted you let you know . And, as we were unloading, I took a moment to look out the window at the beach and came eye to eye with a drone looking into the window! Two guys on the beach were fooling around with it, and recording each other as they ran up and down the beach.

Your beach isn't private: there is parking space on both sides of the property (about 10ft from bedroom on one side) for those driving by and spotting it and deciding to stop off, or for beach access for those across the road. Plus, around the point, there is a smallish condo complex, so you will be sharing your slice of paradise.

I don't mind as long as people respect others....but we did have an unsettling last night there. I walked into the kitchen at ten, and flipped on a low light, and saw a figure sitting right by the tree. When the light went on, he got up and walked away. But a little later I heard lots of folks singing and shouting until about 3:30am. I laid awake wondering who was out there so dang close, and then out the bedroom window saw this huge group walking back and forth in front of our sweet place with flashlights.

The next morning my husband checked thru the hedge at the parking area, that is about ten feet from the bedroom, and saw that two vans had camped there overnight. I called the manager to let her know, and to ask what I should have done. She said the property next door was private and they had no control over it, and suggested that the police could have been called. I did think about doing that, but figured people that would make that much noise wouldn't be the nicest to start with, and was fearful they might come back to vandalize our car.

The property next door needs to be marked as private property with no access (as others do). Perhaps a chain across to keep out the campers? If nothing else: bring your own signs!

Relaxing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at the Love Shack was beyond our expectations. The beach is beautiful...and it truly is just that close. We spent our time exploring Kauai and each night came home to a comfy, cozy home. We loved the seclusion and the quiet. The house is well appointed and has what you need for cooking, to BBQ, sit on the beach, or wash clothes...it is there. The welcome basket was a nice touch too.

Thank you to the team for being great to work with and so informative. The packet we received was so helpful.

We will be back!!!
