Here is a sample that a few of our guests have written after enjoying their time at our home...

' Sadly, the Best Holiday ever is coming to a close... May we return another day. What a Great Property and location... A Perfect Holiday! It was like Fireworks!!!'

- The Kerr Family

Australia and Washington D.C.

' We Loved the Sun, the Sand, the Water and the Relaxation... But Most of all, we enjoyed meeting you... Your warmth, your Aloha, and your friendship... We hope to see you again!'

- The Payne Family

' All we can say is simply AMAZING... Wish we had found you years ago! Mahalo and Aloha until next time...'

This special vacation retreat rests amidst expensive homes of the 'rich and famous' (Kauai scenes from Honeymoon in Vegas were filmed at our neighbors home, and Hollywood stars are frequently spotted here), yet this home offers a surprisingly affordable opportunity to experience one of the true gems of 'Old Hawaii'. Anini Beach is relaxation paradise at its finest!

Situated 77 paces from a safe and tranquil swimming beach, a rarity on the North Shore, with gentle mountains looking on from above, this nearly three mile long gold-sand beach is protected from the open ocean by the longest, widest fringing reef in all of Hawaii. This makes Anini Beach one of Kauai's safest beaches for swimming, windsurfing, fishing and kayaking year round. With shallow water - three to five feet deep - it's also one of the best snorkel and dive locations on Kauai, for beginners or experts alike. Within steps from this home, you’ll find pockets of turquoise reefs that offer glimpses of rare tropical fish and underwater sea life that can only be found on Kauai. Walk the beach at sunrise and sunset, and you will feel as if you have been reborn. Or just spend the day looking for the rare seashells that wash upon the gentle shore or reading that book you’ve been putting off for too long.

Whatever your true need, let the miracle of Anini Beach replenish your soul as the ocean waves lull you to sleep at night and refresh you as you wake each morning. Moments of tranquility and spectacular beauty that you will recall years after leaving. Memories that will call for your return for years to come. Find that special Anini Moment that you and your loved ones will cherish for a lifetime!!!

Relax... You've found Paradise!!!

Mahalo for your visit. And as we say on Kauai, 'A Hui Hou' or 'Until we meet Again!'

Aloha Nui Loa!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Of the many times we've visited beautiful Kauai over the years, this was the most perfect of them all. Your home is truly filled with aloha. We enjoyed and appreciated the soulfulness of your home with its shells, coral, plants and flowers everywhere. The gifts you left for us were so great! Thanks! (Loved the wine!) We took the Hawaiian CD you made for us in the car, which made the incomparable drives here even more lovely. We also enjoyed the morning chorus of birds outside our bedroom window and often lingered to hear just a little more. We will definitely be back and thank you again for sharing this place with us and for your amazing thoughtfulness. Mahalo Nui Loa!

Would Return Again. And Again. And Again!

  • 5 of 5

This is prime real estate for the island. The home really IS right across the scenic drive and the beach is right out of a vacation catalogue, really the prettiest we found. The neighborhood is quiet, lush, and colorful and the house is casual and incredibly well-stocked.

There are two entries, front and back. Both have stairs but are negotiable unless you're absolutely unable to rise from a wheelchair. The kitchen/dining area is very spacious and has everything you need for full meals. The living room is large and airy (we moved an armchair from the upper bedroom to add some extra seating while there) with an adjacent smaller bedroom/play area (kids, especially, would love this room). Also on that floor is a Queen bedroom with a sea view and roomy bath. A half-floor up off the living room is an additional spacious, light-filled bedroom and another full bath. Both bedrooms are very comfortable (don't bother arguing over who gets the room with a view. You won't be spending much time in there!).

The lanai on the front of the house may as well be a store given all the beach toys available. Snorkels, masks, coolers, beach chairs, fins, shovels and pails...pretty much anything you'd need for a great day on the sand and in the water.

Be aware, this IS a beach house. It's beautiful but casual, so don't go in expecting pressed Italian linens. It's clean, welcoming and, perhaps best of all, the hostess is incredibly accommodating and friendly. We wished we could have spent more time chatting with her!

A beautiful stay on Kauai.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in a beautiful, and peaceful location on Anini beach. The weather was a bit rainy but we still enjoyed walking the beach, swimming with the turtles, enjoying local restaurants and visiting some of the local gardens. Not the best hiking weather so we found other things to do. Thank you Clover for sharing your house.

A Peaceful Perfect Place to Get Away from it All!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends truly enjoyed our week's stay. The house had everything we needed! The kitchen had everything we could want to cook our own meals. We just LOVED all the snorkeling equipment provided and we spent most of our time just across the street from the Anini Beach reef. Each time we snorkeled we got up close to sea turtles and saw many kinds of fish. We loved taking the provided beach chairs and watching the waves come in. Clover was super friendly and helpful in directing us to farmers markets and special events on the island. I asked if there was a rice maker in our pre-trip communication and found a brand new rice maker upon our arrival. The neighborhood is quiet (except for the early morning roosters). Each of us has a high-stress job, but the magic of the island and the house helped us slow down and actually relax. We look forward to returning next year!

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location and great house! Clover was very communicative and accommodated special requests. The beds were comfortable in all the rooms, the kitchen was so well stocked that we loved cooking there. The extra snorkel gear, boogie boards, coolers and such were perfect for us. They provide lots of plush towels for both inside and on the beach. The laundry machines were nice to have available and the recycling bins were great. Access to the beach is super easy and the snorkeling out there was decent (not gorgeous coral, but decent amounts of some colorful fish). I did get to swim with a turtle on the first day! We would love to come stay here again someday! You can see whale's way in the distance. We loved hearing the ocean while sleeping. The propane grill and outdoor eating area were very nice too! Thank you so much for hosting us!

It's says you found paradise no you found heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, location says it all. What a place to stay and relax or enjoy the outdoors. Great eating location inside the house or out on the porch. From the breakfast table you can enjoy watching the ocean or listening to the birds. Now plan your day, the porch is loaded with snorkeling gear, water shoes, boogie boards and sand toys. Plus beach umbrella but you don't need them just walk to beach turn left go around big tree and enjoy the shade. Everyday snorkel with the turtles. You can get within inches if you want it doesn't seem to bother them. Now make a reservation with seabreeze tours to Napali coast in the morning , explore the waterfalls, cliffs and caves. The skipper takes you inside the caves. And this is only a 300 foot walk from your front door. He backs his catamaran from his drive onto the park boat ram. The kitchen in the house is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes silverware, spices and a lot more. Those trade winds come in the front of the house and out the back. If you need there are plenty of fans to cool you down. Living areas very spacious. And your host goes above and beyond to insure every need is met. Oh, the beds are comfortable. Thank you Clover we will return.

Outstanding home for access to tranquil beach

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for reliably calm beach and clear snorkel conditions in July this is your rental home. I agree with all the positive things reviewers before me said but will add a few convenience comments I appreciated about Clover's rental home. I loved having the outdoor hot shower to rinse the sand and salt water off before entering the house. I appreciated having a washer and dryer to freshen our beach towels when necessary. Clover even supplied the detergent as well as all the kitchen necessities. The front porch has a nice line for drying wet suits and towels. It also has an amazing collection of beach toys like boogie boards, masks, fins etc. Clover greeted us warmly then respected our privacy our whole time there. She enables visitors to conveniently recycle and compost while there. She also provides, maps for shopping and getting there, information for farmer's market days and has a great library of Kauai Guide resources. If I ever return to Kauai I will surely stay there again.
