Guestbook comments from the owner

"Perfect location, perfect accomodation and Bonnie was brilliant! We loved having lazy evenings barbequing and sipping cocktails on the beautiful veranda. The beaches were all fabulous-Pipeline with its cooling breezes, Sunset with its balmy water and Waimea Bay with its pristine azure beauty...it's easy to see why the sailor on the Bounty/Cooke thought islands like this were paradise!

The Best Location in North Shore!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week long trip for Spring Break. The house was better than we had expected. Everyone was so very nice. Stephanie was so warm, friendly and helpful. She made sure everything was in order. To show you how great everything was, the only incident we had (Which was no incident at all) was the ice maker stopped working. Within hours, Stephanie delivered ice herself and scheduled service. This was not necessary but so appreciated.

We rented bikes and surfboards and had them delivered for all of us. The best times were bbqing in the backyard as a family with the ocean and sunset as our backyard view. The surf was great to just sit and watch. There is a great bike path that takes you down to the shrimp food trucks. That was one of our favorite things to do and stops for a quick bite to eat.

Ted's Bakery is a short walk in the morning for some of the greatest doughnuts and pastries you will ever have.

If you are looking for a great location, cozy, inviting home, quiet, secluded area for your next stay in the North Shore, you will not get better than this. We live in San Diego and are used to the warm weather and beaches, but are already planning our next stay there as nothing else comes close! Enjoy.

One of the best locations on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week in March. We've stayed all over the North Shore but this location was our favorite by far. It's in a quiet neighborhood away from the highway and the house is right on the beach, overlooking Backyards. It's also a short walk to Ted's Bakery, Sunset Beach, etc. The house is a typical beach house with small rooms, but we spent all of our time on the lanai, the lawn and the beach. The best part was going to sleep each night to the sound of the waves.

Amazing location and conscientious owners

  • 5 of 5

The location is impossible to beat. Beach access right from the yard. It has a huge lanai and well-kept grounds. It has private, gated parking and entry. The owner was extremely gracious and helpful, before, during, and even when we needed help with a couple things afterwards. Highly, highly recommended!

This review will not do the house or location justice....but I will do my best

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the beautiful Hale Kai Nani earlier this month for 5 nights. It was too short - we should have amended our plans and stayed longer if possible. We have just returned home to Western Australia, and our plans have started as to when we can return to Hawai'i.

Hale Kai Nani is in a wonderful part of the world. We (one by one) ate at all the local food trucks, walked to Ted's Bakery for delish butter croissants each morning (way better than Bouchon's in LA!), went surfing & paddle boarding, we went shopping (Haleiwa has some fab shops, especially 'Guava'), cooked a true American BBQ on the grill, fired up the torches by the BBQ as they looked fantastic at night, found a good coffee shop with a great barista who made exceptional coffee (Coffee Gallery), toasted and ate loads of marshmallows, was put in touch with a local fisherman (who was a friend of a brother in law's friend etc..) to get freshly caught ahi fish for dinner, we read our books, we watched the kids play together on the grass while enjoying a glass of wine, we all laugh lots and were silly, we played cards competitively for sheep stations, we all breathed in life and stopped for a short while to enjoy our own bubble of paradise, as a family.

The house is comfortable, extremely clean and has everything you need. It is the quintessential beach house in that the decor is perfect for the surroundings but not to precious that you can't pop your feet up on the coffee table or curl up on the couch. The kitchen is well resourced and all you need to prepare a meal is there, and then some.

Jenny and Stephanie are terrific communicators and were in touch with all relevant information we needed, as we needed it. Thank you ladies.

If you are reading this and are still weighing up which house/location to go to, I would not hesitate to recommend staying at Hale Kai Nani. It's simply wonderful.

Great location and well-maintained

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect with direct beach access from outside. Well-decorated and with functioning, modern appliances. Great lanai with a grill. Good cooling during the hot hours. Plenty of windows and light. Kitchen is well-stocked with cooking utinsels. Grounds are lovely and well-kept. Private car port and a gate. Owner is professional and responsive. We only wish there was recycling available, even if someone came and picked it up, as this is very important to us. But just a small detail on an overall wonderful property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review! We look forward to having you back next year for a future stay! WE are happy you loved our property as much as we do! It's a very special place on the North Shore.....as you mentioned, via voicemail, you visit several times/year and this is the Best Location and cleanest property you have encountered. We take great pride in making our home a place "we would want to stay in." Thanks again for choosing "The Best Beachfront Location at Sunset Beach!" See you next time.... On another note.... We agree with your request for recycle. Unfortunately, we have been informed the oversized recycle garbage collection vehicles cannot fit down our charming neighborhood street. We can look into ways to work with our guests and garbage collection to help find a solution to the recycling on the NS. Aloha'oe
