Why mark thorrington chose Hanalei

Hanalei Bay is our dream location. We had been vacationing in Kauai for some time and were intrigued by buying on the island. Once we stumbled upon Hanalei's beach, we knew we found the location. We have a big family that loves to surf, sunbathe, swim, snorkel, walk/run on the sand, play beach volleyball, and living on the sand was our priority. The Dolphin house fits our expanding nuclear family of 6, and is on the sand. We found our dream!

What makes this estate unique

Ocean front property is tough to come by. The large lawn leading to the sand is relaxing. We use the outdoor bbq regularly. We love the wi-fi, and high definition satellite TVs. New ipod docks built into every bedroom in the house connected to house wide speaker system. We are in close proximity to pretty much everything a Hawaii vacation offers.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Kauai every year or two as it one of our favorite places in the world. The north shore of Kauai is our favorite part of the island and we have stayed in hotels, Airbnbs, and have rented several houses in Hanalei. The Dolphin House is by far the best we have rented. It is located in what I'd say is the best part of the beach on Hanalei and the estate is amazing! Just like the exterior of the estate, the interior of the house is extremely well maintained and is very clean. We highly recommend this house and will for sure return. The owner as well as the property manager were great to work with and we highly recommend them as they made the process smooth and made us feel very welcome! Thanks for sharing/renting your house to us, we really enjoyed it!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

The Dolphin House is a perfect vacation home. Steps from the beach, beautifully appointed, large, filled with private spaces to sneak away, as well as gathering areas for big families and groups. I could not recommend it more highly.

Impressive! Such a wonderful memory.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in July at this beautiful home. There were 7 adults and plenty of room for everyone to have their own private retreat area. Everything was above our expectations including all the home's amenities, supplies, equipment. One of our guests loved to cook and she was amazed at all the kitchen appliances and supplies which aren't normally available in a vacation rental. The location and view are the best - right in the middle of Hanalei Bay on a nice stretch of beach that never was crowded even during the height of tourist season. The grounds are immaculate and the setting is very private. The main house and the 2 BR guest house are perfect for a large family or group. Any questions or problems we had were quickly addressed, but honestly there was nothing that detracted from our experience. Thanks to management and staff for making our stay one of the best vacations ever!

Amazing property beautifully maintained and appointedand well sited next to a charming village. It was the perfect location for our family to meet up.Both the owner and manager were very accommodating in our dealings and prompt with all communication. For us it was a once in a lifetime splurge but we have no regrets!!

3rd stay at this incredible property.

  • 5 of 5

We just recently returned from our 3rd stay at this incredible property in Hanalei. Located right on Hanalei Bay this house is nothing short of amazing. The bedrooms are all large and well furnished, the kitchen is very well equipped and the house has plenty of gathering spaces for your large group. The town of Hanalei is a 5 minute walk away, the Napali coast is just down the road and the beach is a 30 second walk out the back door making this location absolutely perfect.

We made a trip to Costco on the first day of our trip and other than some outdoor activities and a couple of dinners in town had no reason to ever leave the house. Most days were spent enjoying the view and the amenities at the house (beach, pool table, large lawn, beautiful garden and spacious kitchen). This was our third visit to the property. The owner continues to invest in the house making it nicer each time we go.

We will definitely return and have already inquired about dates for our 4th visit!!!
