About The Owner

Nakea Kauai Vacation rentals offers three properties for rent, a one bedroom ocean bluff condo at Sealodge in Princeville (Kai Nani), a three bedroom beachfront home (Hale Kai) and a one bedroom beachfront cottage (Punana Aloha). The latter two are both located at the secluded end of incredible Anini Beach. All three properties are owned and lovingly cared for by Bob Nakea and his wife, Dotty. Bob is a native Hawaiian whose family's roots on Kauai go back to the 1800's, and Dotty is a mainland transplant who has been in the islands for over 48 years. No attention to detail on the properties is overlooked, and each home is furnished with the comfort of its guests foremost in mind.

**Sadly, Dotty passed on in 2009. Bob and their daughter Suzi, who was also born and raised in the islands, continue to care for these properties and their valued guests.

The Owner purchased this house in 1975

Why The Owner chose Kauai

In the North Shore's idyllic setting you can: swim, surf; sunbathe, scuba dive or snorkel, wind surf (with rental boards and lessons available at Anini Beach Park), go shore fishing, book a deep water charter; beach comb, go horseback riding at Princeville Stables, watch polo games at Anini Beach, hike the island's awesome trails, enjoy gourmet dining, work out at the Princeville Spa (featuring daily and weekly memberships giving access to the latest exercise equipment, large lap pool, Jacuzzi, wet and dry saunas, and numerous aerobics, yoga, aqua -size and weight training classes), pamper yourself with a facial treatment or full body massage, whale watch, take a Na Pali Coast boat tour or a sunset sailing cruise in Hanalei Bay, book a helicopter tour of fabulous Waimea Canyon, play tennis, enjoy worldclass golfing (with discounts at Princeville's Makai and Prince courses), drive around the island and take in the sights, or just simply lie back and bask in the simple glory of being in one of earth's most naturally beautiful and peaceful places.

What makes this house unique

Hale Kai's location almost at the dead end of Anini Road, where there is only a single row of homes along the beach, means that our guests enjoy quiet and privacy not found along most of the rest of Anini. The protecting reef (one of the largest in Hawaii) assures that the waves break far out and not on the shore, and the calm shoreline and shallow waters make the area in front of the house ideal for swimming and snorkeling most of the year (except during periods of high winter surf). It is a wonderful beach for small children as it has a smooth sandy bottom (no holes to worry about!).

Incredible family vacation

  • 5 of 5

With two little kids, we often find ourselves searching for a vacation that makes us happy and that keeps our kids happy as well. Hale Kai was it. We absolutely loved our stay. We spent a good deal of time at the beach across the street, which was perfect for swimming, fishing, SUP, and lounging. We'd simply head back to the house for meals, etc. The surroundings are really serene. It was a paradise we were sad to leave. And, the owners are very responsive and helpful - made our stay even more enjoyable.

Perfect non-tourist getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Nakea house is perfect for you if you want a quiet getaway on a secluded beach. There are little tourists here and most of the ones that are here are your neighbors. The house is on a 1 mile stretch of Anini Beach with probably only a few dozen homes. There is no one between you and the beach (there is a road that separates the beach from the house but it is only about 10 feet wide and is more like a private drive that you and your neighbors share). The water in front of the house is super calm as the reef breaks up any waves—this is great for children. The house itself is well taken care of, clean and well-appointed.

Perfect family vacation spot

We had a wonderful family trip and enjoyed staying at this property. The beach was perfect for the kids and the view was perfect for my parents. The house was clean and very comfortable. The owners were also very helpful and friendly. We hope to stay here again soon!

We are a family that has traveled quite extensively. The Nakea home was wonderful, just as described, only better. The only downside was our stay was but one week. We are already planning a return visit which cannot be too soon. Mahalo

Nakea Home Revisited

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this wonderful home on Annini Beach and we loved it just as much as ever! We thoroughly enjoyed being right across from the beautiful water,every morning I paddle boarded out a ways and watched as sea turtles surfaced to greet me! The snorkeling was fabulous and the water was warm and inviting! The home has a wonderful front deck that we used constantly as well as the lower ground level floor to store all our beach stuff safely and conveniently! The only negative was on the weekends the beach gets quite crowded with overnite campers that set up camp right on the beach in front of the house,but during the week it was much less busy. We would not let this deter us from the otherwise perfect vacation spot on Kauai! We hope to spend many more days and nights enjoying this fabulous beach home!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo for sharing your wonderful family home in paradise! Everything was perfect and the hosts were very kind and helpful. We love Anini beach more than any place we've visited in the Hawaiian islands and hope to return to this very spot again soon. The home was clean, well maintained and on the most beautiful stretch of beach. Perfect for snorkeling, paddle boarding, swimming, fishing, floating and kayaking...all of which we did during our stay!
