Romantic Tropical Hawaiian House - Sp2011-17

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Kauai - Hale O Ani

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Nestled comfortably in the hills of Kauai's South Side, in an upscale area, secluded and away from the salt air and noise of resorts. This is a 1500 sq. ft. luxurious Tropical Hawaiian custom home. This house is perfect for a romantic getaway for two or roomy accommodations for two couples.

The fresh tradewinds blow gentle breezes through this amazing house, filled with antiques and custom furniture. It is equipped with “top of the line” everything from the dishes, linens, pillows and bed to the doors and floors. There is a gentleness to this Hawaiian house that gives the feeling of peace. Whether lounging on the screened lanai or soaking in the outdoor hot tub, it's luxury at its best.

There are two master suites each with queen beds and huge walk in showers. The suites are privately located on either ends of the house. This home is appointed with real tropical hardwood floors throughout, Gourmet kitchen, and an unbelievable attention to detail.

A personal Chef is available for romantic dinners at home or if you would like, a massage done in the privacy of your own home away from home.

This is the kind of home that is so comfortable you won’t want to leave, but when you do it's just 10 minutes to lovely Koloa Town, the oldest plantation town on the island with quaint shops, restaurants and local grinds (food), 15 minutes to Poipu’s beautiful beaches, surfing, golf and fabulous restaurants and 15 minutes from Port Allen where you can embark on an adventure to the breathtaking Napali Coast or a romantic sunset cruise.

About Faye or Bob Brenner

Bob and I married 30 years ago. We were and are still in business together which we can conduct through the Internet. The first time we came to Kauai in 1999- we fell in love with it. The beauty of the land and the aloha of its people, for us it is paradise. We decided on that first trip that we would live here . It has been a good decision. After 16 years we are still in love with Kauai. A love we enjoy sharing with our guest.

Faye or Bob Brenner purchased this house in 2008

Why Faye or Bob Brenner chose Kauai

We built this house from the ground up. Having been home builders and designers for some years, we had great fun designing it just the way we liked. This house was not originally built as a guest house, but as a home for Bob's father. No cost was spared in the building or furnishing of this house. It is obvious when you see it. Bob's father found a retirement living situation that he loves and now only comes once a year. Now we have the fun of sharing this beautiful house with our guest. Its very private and romantic - a good percentage of our guest are on their honeymoon.

What makes this house unique

This house feels like its in the middle of nowhere, but its only minutes to almost all of what Kauai has to offer. Its located down a country lane then turn on to a short cul-de-sac where there is very little traffic. Its such a safe quiet area . The hot tub is located outside in your own private court yard. All the windows look out to lush foliage. Since this house is located 800 ft above sea level, the breezes are cool - actually the temp. is perfect, never a need for A/C or Heat. You can leave the windows open year round and feel the fresh trades winds.

Our winter home

  • 5 of 5

We have been privileged to experience two extended winter vacations at Hale O Ani and are returning again in 2017. That is probably, in and of itself, testimony to how wonderful this property is. But to restate the highlights and some additional insights I would like to share the following, much of which is supported by other reviewers of this outstanding property.

First is "quality". Everything, in Hale O Ani is of the highest quality. The dishes, glassware, appliances, bedding, furniture, hardwood floors. The owners Faye and Bob are delightful, fun and responsive to needs and wants and willing to share their insights into interesting side trips.

I could go on, but want to mention a few things that have proved important to us; particularly the surrounding area. When you leave Route 50 and drive up the road to the property it feels like entering Jurassic Park! The vegetation is so lush and stunning that in some places it is breathtaking. This sets the stage for a feeling of wonder and tranquility. When approaching the house from the driveway we’ve encountered Sharma Thrush singing their sweet and unusual song along with all sorts of other interesting birds. We have been fortunate enough to pick bananas off the trees in the driveway and stay long enough to eat them! The view of the palm tree from one of the bedrooms is like a live painting and the bougainvillea cascading over the hot tub in full bloom is outstanding. As a matter of fact it is the last picture I took before we left at the end of March.

All in all Hale O’ Ani is a fabulous retreat, getaway, hideaway, or whatever one chooses to call it. All we know is that it is soothing to us, both inside the property and outside where it is positioned up in the hills far enough away from the hustle (but not too far) to feel like a sanctuary. We are grateful to be able to leave Upstate NY for most of the winter and now call Hale O’Ani, our winter home. Not visitors, not tourists. We come home in the winter….

Amazing Cottage in Kauai's South Shore Hills

  • 5 of 5

Hale O Ani was exactly what we hoped it would be for our honeymoon. It's private with tasteful appointments and Japanese-style landscaping. We loved the outdoor shower and hot tub. It's a short drive to the many wonderful beaches and restaurants on the South Shore, and an even shorter drive to historic Koloa Town. We made great use of the beach chairs, water shoes, and cooler that were provided. You'll definitely need a rental car to get around. We'll definitely come back to Hale O Ani next time we visit the Garden Island.

Peaceful sanctuary - an Kauai experience not to be missed

  • 5 of 5

Rain or shine, this place is a real sanctuary!

This quiet 2 bedroom cottage is beautifully designed by the talented owners. The Balinese-style home feels very cozy for a couple yet spacious enough for 4 people. Every window and lanai offer a gorgeous view of Hawaiian plants, flowers and lush greenery. Inside, rooms are well appointed and lit to provide a very peaceful, relaxing ambience, day or night. The kitchen is very well-equipped, including a pantry, for preparing home cooked meals.

The cozy yet spacious cottage provided me with a slice of, 'must experience', island life. I thoroughly enjoyed mornings drinking coffee and listening to birds sounds and the wind rustling in the trees. Cooking and lounging in this wonderful getaway supplied many fond memories and experiences not to be missed.

Hale O'Ani is also perfectly located for easy beach/island access and cooler climate due to the elevation and Kauai trade winds . Kalaheo is known for its lovely breezes and comfortable air temperature. As the owners so aptly named the cottage: Hale O'Ani means house of gentle breezes - and that's true!

I am going to get straight to the point! WE LOVE, LOVE, LOVED THE MONTH WE SPENT AT HALE O’ANI THIS YEAR! And we are coming again in 2016 – this time for ten weeks!

After several years of staying in condos on the beach in Poipu, my husband and I decided to explore more of Kauai’s vacation properties. Fortunately, we were still on the island when we found the listing for the above property and were able to see it in person. We loved the serenity of the location and the beautiful attention to detail of the décor. We rented it on the spot for the entire month of January, 2015. It did not disappoint. It is a wonderful retreat. The furnishings are unique, the floors spectacular, and the place immaculate. The bedding is first class, with wonderful pillows (better than I have at home).

I love to cook and consequently we ate out infrequently during the month. I found the kitchen to be well equipped with a blender, food processor, crock pot, all the typical utensils, and a gas stove, which was a bonus. The glassware and dishes are much nicer than I’ve ever had in a condo property. There is also a Weber grill with all appropriate tools. And Tommy Bahama beach chairs, plus an umbrella for days at the beach. The hot tub and outside shower were great treats, and we enjoyed the seclusion and privacy that the stucco wall with palms and blooming flowers provided (think “romantic tropical” house). There are plenty of birds singing and typical creatures that you’d expect to see in a tropical climate.

Faye and Bob were highly attentive, but not intrusive. Because we were staying for a month we made a few requests that were fulfilled immediately. While we don’t want to wish our lives away, I can’t wait to get back to this wonderful spot which seems to be a great balance of beauty and functionality; and that suits us perfectly.

Everything we expected and MORE !

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we had hoped for and more. Many times the photos posted are better than the actual house, but these photos didn't do it justice. Such a beautiful house! Very romantic and very private. The house was extremely clean and the beds so comfortable. The very large outside hot tub was a plus, in our own private courtyard, Looking at the stars at night. It, as everything else in the house, was immaculately clean. Coffee on the screen lanai listening to the morning birds was enchanting. Loved coming home after a beautiful day on Kauai to this amazing house. it just felt like our home away from home. I would recommend this house to anyone and plan to come again next year.

Kauai at its best !!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week stay in this hidden tropical paradise. The house is just beautiful and the kitchen was equipped with most everything we needed. The sounds and smells of the island will sway you to sleep. I highly recommend this Island Paradise, it's location was perfect for all south shore activities.

Located in a beautiful rural area with parcels of land being at least 1 acre so lots of space between homes. There is little traffic as the location is up a narrow country lane and off a cul-de-sac. Great for quiet strolls or running.
