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.

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.

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

Make sure your property rental goes perfectly so you can truly relax

There's no substitute for peace of mind. When you book a stay on HomeAway, VRBO, or VacationRentals, make sure the money spent on your next vacation can be covered.

Cancellation Protection, Carefree Rental Guarantee and Damage Protection provide peace of mind so if plans are complicated by certain listed events, your financial losses can be covered.

Before Your Trip Cancellation Protection (Underwritten by Generali US Branch) - Protects your non-refundable payments if you need to cancel your trip due to a covered reason. Learn more. On Arrival to Your Rental Carefree Rental Guarantee (Provided by HomeAway) - Guarantees your payment if the vacation rental is not as advertised or you are unable to gain access. Learn more. During Your Stay Damage Protection (Underwritten by Generali US Branch) - Protects against expenses incurred if you or your traveling companions accidentally damage the vacation rental. Learn more. Ask your Booking Agent how to set up!

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

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.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Though our stay included 6 out of 7 days of bad weather we really were able to enjoy our visit to Kauai.

* The house was architecturally aesthetically pleasing. It had nice furnishings and was very clean. Some items on the exterior showed some wear, i.e., louvered windows, siding.

*The view was spectacular. Panoramic views from all rooms inside house including the bedroom, kitchen, living/dining and even the bathroom!

* A gift basket was provided with fresh fruit (best pineapple ever!), chocolates and cookies. Everything you need other than your groceries is provided. The host, Christine, and her brother, David were very responsive. All in all this was an exceptional place to spend our week in Kauai.

Fantastic cottage with a view that cannot be beat!

  • 5 of 5

If you hate the relaxing sounds of the waves while you bathe and sleep, the beautiful sunrises over the bay, and quick access to the best beaches on the island, then this is not the place for you. My wife and I loved every minute we were here and are planning to stay again the next time we are on island.

The Love Shack is close to several good beaches and the town of Hanalei. We were lucky enough to see a seal sleeping on the sand close to the cabin

Mostly Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This property is just as pictured. Walk out the door and you're on the beach. Look out any window in any room and you're looking at the ocean. The interior is very nice. The location is great. A bit out of the way but we loved the location. The only thing we did not like was the road ran right along one side of the house so you heard all traffic go by but all the other pluses way out weighed this. We would stay here again. We loved the northshore compared to the poipu area where we stayed three years ago.
