About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8) TVNCU#1106 Kauai Approved Vacation home

Paulele is a beautiful Hawaiian-style home right on the closest beach road (Weke Rd.) on breathtaking Hanalei Bay! This tasteful and comfortable home has four bedrooms, five baths, a fully-equipped kitchen, and it comes with everything you’ll need for a wonderful visit to this 'Old Hawaii' Garden Island paradise.

You’ll enjoy spectacular ocean, mountain, and waterfall views from many areas of the home and the world-renowned Hanalei Point surf break is in full view from the convenience of your front porch! With the short path to the beach just one lot over, you're 100 yards from the bay. There are two identical master suites, each with king beds, spacious bathrooms, as well as private entrances and lanais. The third bedroom has two twin beds, which can be converted to a king, and full bath with tub, while the lower level fourth bedroom has a king bed, shower bath, and private entrance.

For your comfort and convenience, there is an outdoor bamboo enclosed hot water shower, laundry room, covered shuffleboard court, and covered hammock, as well as lots of beach gear (beach towels, mats, chairs, umbrellas, and kids boogie boards) and yard games (horseshoes, bocce ball, badminton and croquet). The oceanview dining area seats eight, with additional stools at the bar and a four chair game table with plenty of games, puzzles, and books. Many guests feel our home to be a destination in itself with so many comfortable areas to spend time.

And best of all, the warm water and beautiful sand beach of Hanalei Bay is just across the street! Generally, the ocean is calm in the summer and surf is bigger in the winter, sometimes reaching ‘big wave’ status. Located within ten minutes of several north shore beaches, you’ll have many options for swimming, surfing, wind and kite surfing, snorkeling, and many other activities. The famous NaPali Coast trail has its main access just down the road. A short walk from the home is quaint Hanalei town with its many shops and restaurants.

Hanalei Bay is one of Hawaii’s most beautiful and pristine beaches, with only private homes, no hotels or condos, built on the beach. With Paulele, you’ll have the pleasure of walking to the beach any time of day, from the solitude of sunrise to the glory of a Hanalei sunset, while having all the comforts of home. And unlike those in Princeville and other parts of the island who have to drive to the beach at Hanalei, you’re already there! We love our Hanalei home and trust that like guests before you, you will too! For a virtual tour, go to the end of the photos. We are happy to answer any of your questions and look forward to hearing from you soon to help plan your tropical getaway! Aloha

About Anne Newman

We first fell in love with Kauai during our family's first visit in May, 1992. While my husband insisted we couldn't possibly leave our business for a two week vacation, I planned a week on Napili Bay on Maui and a second week on the South Shore of Kauai. In the middle of that second week, we ventured up to the North Shore. I can still remember the feeling as we first arrived at Hanalei Bay. 'Ahh, this is it!' I proclaimed, and, for us, it has remained so.

The beauty of the Bay was so stunning it felt surreal. The lush green mountains were lined with waterfalls and the Bay seemed to stretch on forever. There was hardly anyone on the beach and no hotels down on the Bay. It felt as if we had gone back in time to the 'Old Hawaii' of my dreams. ...Plantation style homes dotting the beachfront with lots of wide open spaces...

By 1996, we knew we would always want to come to Hanalei and we started looking to buy a home. We started renting the home that is now Paulele, but it was not for sale. We looked for 3 years at just about everything that came up for sale in Hanalei, but didn't like anything as much as this house. 'We need to trust', I told my husband. 'Have faith that if it's meant to be, it will happen'.

Well, it did. Without ever going on the market, the previous owners finally succumbed to our persistence and sold us the home in 1999. We named it 'Paulele' which means to believe, have faith and trust.

In Hanalei, magic happens. Come visit. We hope you enjoy our home and Hanalei as much as we do.

Anne Newman purchased this house in 1999

Why Anne Newman chose Hanalei

At Paulele, the beach is always just a few steps away any time of day. Whether an early morning stroll, a mid-day swim or surf, or a gorgeous sunset, it's all right out in front of you. If you need groceries or want to treat yourself to a dinner out, no need to get in the car. Just walk into town and it's all there. We love our location for these and many reasons!

What makes this house unique

We hope you enjoy the activities that we've offered right at Paulele. We love shuffleboard, horseshoes, bocce ball, badminton and croquet, so we have all of them right there for you to enjoy in our fantastic yard. Do you love to read? I do, so you'll find a bookshelf waiting for you. Plenty of deck space, both sunny and covered, for you to relax and a bamboo enclosed hot water shower that we built ourselves are other nice features. And can anyone really get away without internet? It's there if you need it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paulele House. Short walk to the beautiful beach and short walk to town too. The owners outfitted the house perfectly , cant think of a thing we didn’t have at our fingertips.

From the beach cart, beach chairs, boogie boards and beach umbrellas , to fully supplied kitchen utensils and gadgets. Really appreciated having staples ( dish soap, laundry detergent , toilet paper , paper towels ) supplied. The owners are responsive , helpful and friendly. The house is spacious and has lots of nooks and separate deck areas if you want some space from your “ roommates “

We all had a fabulous time , would definitely stay here again if we are back in Kauai. 😎?🌴?

Hanalei Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven absolutely loved our week at Paulele on Hanalei Bay. The home provides everything imaginable for a perfect beach getaway and the owners go out of their way to make sure your stay is as good as it can be. The house is big enough to comfortably accommodate a big group and the huge lanai literally surrounds the house and invites outdoor living. Their are four bedrooms that each have their own private entrance and feel very private even though they are part of the greater house. Each has its own bathroom and flat screen TV. The den is spacious and their are a multitude of sitting areas for a group to spread out in. The kitchen has all the appliances to make cooking a breeze. We used the bbq grill on the patio several times and enjoyed delicious meals on the lanai overlooking the beauty that is the Kauai North Shore. The house comes with lots of beach gear and toys, which was really nice to have waiting for us upon our arrival and the outdoor shower was a great way to clean up after a day at the beach. Perhaps the greatest asset of this beautiful home is its location. You are literally a five minute walk from the beach and a less than 10 minute walk from the center of Hanalei and all its shops and restaurants. The proximity to everything from Paulele was wonderful and made it so easy to be in the water or in town enjoying a shave ice in minutes. With a family that included five kids, we appreciated the fact that the house has great wifi so everyone could be on their technology with no problems. This is a spacious, well appointed, beautiful home in a perfect location with wonderful owners who show great hospitality by providing lots of great information on the house and surrounding area leading up to your stay and they invite you to contact them should you need anything during your stay. We love Hanalei and will absolutely return, and when we do we will stay at Paulele again - it is true Hanalei perfection!

Fabulous Kauai retreat

  • 4 of 5

Paulele Beach House was the perfect solution for our party of 8 adults from the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. A spacious bedroom layout afforded each couple almost complete privacy, a fully equipped kitchen made food preparation easy and there was plenty of seating options for both dining and relaxing. The host Anne was always very helpful and available, from the first booking made months in advance to while we were staying there. There was a small problem with a tap fitting and she made sure that it was resolved as soon as possible. The location is perfect being so close to beautiful Hanalei Bay beach, shopping and restaurants, all within easy walking distance. Everything you need is supplied from bicycles to body boards & fins, beach chairs, rain umbrellas (a must for Kauai), even a stroller if staying with children. Every one of our party was impressed with this accommodation. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us 😊
