Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Kauai - Kaulana Naue at Tunnels Beach

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12) TVNCU-1214

Exclusive Luxury Beachfront Home at Tunnel’s Beach

Imagine an island, a lush green paradise in the far-off reaches of the
 deep blue sea. Mango trees sway in a gentle breeze, while the warm and sparkling 
Pacific waves roll out upon golden sands. Imagine a beach house, expansive and bright, airy and inviting, carefully crafted down to every detail, and filled with every amenity 
for your every need – just a few steps from the sand… Welcome to Kaulana Naue TVNCU-1214

This 5,000 sq. ft., well-appointed, ocean-front home is everything you need for your 
dream Kauai vacation. Designed with artful detail in mind, the home is a perfect
 blending of the natural Kauai landscape with modern craftsmanship and amenities. Invite in the tradewinds and turquoise Pacific views with our large picture 
widows and sliding doors. Cook a gourmet Hawaiian feast in the spacious, well-
equipped kitchen. Each of the bedrooms are 
large and spacious, each having it’s own bathroom.

Heaven Defined…

Take a stroll at sunset on the isolated sands of Tunnels Beach and enjoy a cocktail as you soak in the hot tub on our large ocean-front lanai. Sip your
 morning coffee at sunrise with your toes in the sand, and dream up the day ahead.
 Snorkeling, surfing, swimming, sand-castle building or just sunbathing with a 
good book ~ all without having to go more than 15 steps out the door. Kaulana Naue offers a perfect measure of privacy, in it’s well-manicured grounds 
and pristine stretch of lesser-populated beach front property. Join family and friends 
at the beach, or lull yourself to sleep in the over-sized hammock perched perfectly 
between two old-growth Kamani trees, and sheltered by lush tropical foliage.

Everything You Will Need for a Perfect Vacation…

When booking this 5,000 sq. ft. luxury beach home, you will have everything you could possibly need for the perfect Kauai vacation. There is a 5th bedroom (an additional 500 sq. ft of living area) on the lower level. This unique set up is perfect for a large group/family (up to 12 people) using the additional
 5th bedroom as a more private area off 
of the main house. This works well for guests that are either bringing their babysitter
 or personal chef. The additional 500 sq. ft. which we call the “5th bedroom” is actually a 
1 bedroom apartment equipped with a full size sub zero fridge as well as a small kitchen. This luxury vacation home rental has everything you will need to enjoy a most amazing vacation here in Paradise. The 
home is simply spectacular and can accommodate up to 12 people comfortably.

Stunning Kauai North Shore Location

Located 2 miles from the end of the road on Kauai’s exclusive North Shore, where you will find Tunnels and Ke’e 
Beach as well as the beginning of the NaPali Coast and the Hanakapi’ai/Kalalau hiking trail. Haena is a quaint, peaceful beach neighborhood fronting Kauai’s most stunning white sand beaches. There is great hiking nearby as well as wet and dry caves to explore, beach parks, snorkeling, surfing and a Botanical Garden offering self-guided tours. Whether 
you frequent nearby Hanalei (the closest town, about a 10 minute drive) to dine at gourmet restaurants, or never leave the 
house, you will feel right at home in our spectacular Kauai vacation home by the sea.

About Leila K Rodger

The home is so very special to our family. We enjoy spending time on the beach in front of the house as well as grilling fresh fish on the BBQ and making delicious meals together in the well equipped kitchen. We spend good times here at our home and we have incredible memories. We long and dream of the next time we can wake up to the sound of the ocean waves in the morning from Kaulana Naue.

Why Leila K Rodger chose Kauai

The land was purchased years ago. We have family on the Island. The home was built by my brother who is a contractor on Kauai. Not only is the home spectacular but a whole lot of love was poured into this home during its construction. The home is taken care of by family on the island so it continues to be cared for with TLC.... and you can see it and feel it when you walk in the front door! Leila, our niece is the Property Manager and she will go out of her way to help make your stay at our home Perfect.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Bar none this is the most beautiful and most beautifully maintained home we have ever rented and we have rented many! You will see from the web site pictures how stunning the interior and the surrounding views are. What you are missing, is the sound of the surf and sea birds, the fragrance of the local flowers and salt air and the total peace and beauty of it all! The four bedrooms with their en-suite bath are each private getaways with unique views. The kitchen is a chef's dream with every utensil, serving piece, dish and bar ware that you could want. Inside and out are perfect for entertaining in style.



On top of all that, Leila is an excellent property manager. With her enthusiasm and assistance you will lack for nothing in this island paradise. This is not simply a rental but a much loved, beautifully decorated private home you will be privileged to stay in.

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed here for the week, including the 4th of July holiday, and had a AMAZING time! We were so impressed with the home, the location, and the responsiveness of Leila (the property manager). We'd absolutely stay here again.

THE HOME: This is a beautiful house, with high-end furnishings (e.g., Thermador appliances, Room & Board fixtures, original art, etc...) and tasteful decor. It was very clean, and is obviously well-taken care of. And, Leila had fresh orchids placed all over the house. What a lovely and detailed touch to our experience. There are plenty of beach towels, beach toys, snorkel masks, etc. for the family here. The kitchen is well-appointed, which was very important as we did a lot of cooking and grilling. The home is really relaxing, and even with 10 people, it didn't feel at all crowded. The photos are representative of the home, however don't do justice to the breathtaking setting!

THE LOCATION: The home is beachfront...literally a walk through a small lawn and then you're on the sand. The beach itself is not crowded, so you don't feel like you have to share too much of it with others. It's actually located at the best spot in Kauai for kitesurfing, so when the wind picks up, it's a sight to see so many kiters out on the water. Tunnels beach is a ~10 minute walk along the beach from the home, and we often found ourselves walking there for the best snorkeling on the island. We loved the location of our home b/c it was more serene than staying by Hanalei or Princeville, but close enough to access them. Hanalei is ~15 min drive and Princeville is ~30 mins. By the way, the sunset off the beach is amazing, especially with the view of Bali Hai in the backdrop

THE MANAGER: Leila was very responsive before we arrived, and while we stayed there. She actually lives nearby, so we always knew we could easily reach her if we needed anything. She also has a very friendly dog that we got to meet often during our stay.

DRAWBACKS: Very few, but I should note that the house WiFi was pretty slow, and limited to only the common areas of the house. Also, cell reception is very poor. Since we were there on vacation, this didn't matter to most of us...those who had to get some work done needed to go into Hanalei to find more reliable internet and cell reception.

OVERALL RECOMMENDATION: No regrets whatsoever! This was THE BEST HOUSE, and we had such an amazing, restful, memorable trip. We would not hesitate to stay here again!

What an amazing view of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house looked lovely online but the photos really don't do it justice. It is an amazing home that is very well built, spacious and so comfortable for an extended family. We had adults, kids, and babies and being steps away from the beach made it so convenient. The views from the balcony were breath taking. Each bedroom is very spacious and all the beds are very comfortable with quality mattresses and very nice bedding. It was so nice for each of us to have our own private bath in each bedroom.

This was our first visit to any of the Hawaiian islands and we knew that the north shore wasn't as ideal for swimming but it didn't cause us any issues, we loved the waves. The beach in front of the property was never crowded. It is a residential neighborhood so you don't get squeezed in by crowds and we met several of the neighbors who were all very friendly. There was a calm swimming area just a couple hundred yards down the beach that was an easy walk for swimming and snorkeling but we did plenty of that right in front of our beach house.

Just as the other reviewers commented, Leila is right next door and very friendly and helpful. I was impressed at how clean and well appointed the home was. We rent vacation homes every year and I am often disappointed at how poorly many of them are maintained. In an ocean climate, it is hard to keep a home clean but this one was immaculate. The kitchen is very well stocked and all the appliances are top of the line.

The only comment for others considering this home is the location on the island. Many of the common activities you may want to plan are at the south end and even though its not many miles, it will take well over an hour to drive from the home to many of the common locations. The home and beach are so beautiful that this mostly is not an issue, just plan your day trips so that you don't have to make that drive too often. There are a few shops and a small food market within 10 miles of the home, but for large quantity food shopping you do have quite a drive. Again, just plan for this by stocking up with one large shopping trip and then just plan to stay at this beautiful home, there really is no need to leave.

This was the second visit for me and the 1st for my new wife! We were married on the beach and our wedding party could not have had a better time! The house is perfect and the location speaks for itself. Leila was so helpful with our stay and made our wedding so very enjoyable with our family and friends. Such a great place and we hope to be back soon.

Thanks for everything

Our favorite place ever...

  • 5 of 5

We finally decided to vacation in Haena over Poipu a few years ago, and never looked back. We love Haena, and we love Kaulana Naue. For us, it's perfect. The area is pristine, low key, unassuming and spectacular. There's a raw beauty and a relaxed attitude here that keeps bringing us back. And the home is perfect, from the location to the size, layout, decor and furnishings. Leila keeps the place in great shape and well outfitted, which is a good thing because once you set foot in Haena and in this home, there's no reason to go anywhere. The layout provides plenty of privacy when needed, but you will find yourself together - either at the beach, on the deck, or in the open kitchen/living area. It's awesome, and it feels like home from the minute you get there. We're addicted to this place, and literally count the days until we get back. Highly recommended for families looking to check out and decompress!

Incredible

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this amazing home, and it can certainly say it won't be our last. I think the entire party of ten would agree that they wouldn't mind if we never went anywhere other than here every vacation. It is simply the most perfect place we have ever been!

We loved our stay here so much that we are already planning our return. Perfect for family gatherings or groups of friends. The house is generously appointed and you cannot beat the location. It was incredible!
