A wonderful location
A wonderful location. We had a great stay here! I was just as expected and location is phenomenal. What a beautiful place to relax and enjoy Kauai
old school hawaii - on the sand at hanalei bay
beautiful, serene, & tastefully well-appointed family home on the sand at hanalei bay.
A dream house
We could not visit the rest of the Island over our 8 day stay because my son, daughter in law and the 3 kids were so happy running around outside and surfing, that nothing else seemed worth the effort!
A vacation our whole family will remember.
We do hear that some of our guests at Ka Nani are too happy here & never want to leave this awesome spot even to explore other parts of the island. That is the price you pay for staying on the bay surrounded by nature and beauty. Ah well, maybe next trip they will sight see.
Wonderful Hanalei beach house!
My family loved our 2nd visit to this beautiful beach house! Perfect in every way!
We just love our guests returning to enjoy a spot they know and love.
Location, Location, Location. Right on the beach. Heaven on earth!
Pleasant Hawaiian Cottage but location can be a problem.
Upon arrival we found that we would not be able to stay in our rental because of flooding in the area. We lost one night rental and another day because the house was not cleaned and we could not get in the rental. If you rent in this area you definitely need to realize that flooding is a possibility. There was a massive storm that hit this area. We had planned to surf but were told by local surfers that the water was not safe from bacteria and possible sharks. We had a small child and was told that the beach was not safe from bacteria from the river run offs. There was a large hole in the yard that we were told would be fixed the next day and it wasn't fixed until the day before we checked out. There were teenagers partying with their trucks in front of the house on the beach. I don't know if that's always allowed. We didn't feel safe taking our beach chairs down and just sitting on the beach. We didn't take out insurance . We might have been mistaken but we didn't think it covered natural disasters. I would recommend reading the fine print and possibly getting something writen to clarify about natural disasters. We had excellent communication from the homeowner before we arrived but was not always able to reach her after we arrived. We had never rented from her before so all of the confusion from the storm may have been the problem. We are trying to work with VRBO to mediate at least one night rental return with the homeowner. The house should have been ready when the roads were open. I would suggest you take more money in case you get in this situation. Hotel rental for 6 people is expensive in Kaui.
Wow! I just saw this. The road into Hanalei next to the river floods multiple times a year for usually less than half a day. This regular type of flooding usually effects no buildings. We suggest trip insurance for a possible night missed in your Hanalei lodging.
Yes, this was a unique event. Here is what I found on line just now when I asked about what was the record rain fall for a 24 hour period.
"The island of Kauai saw torrential downpours last April.
A rain gauge at Waipa Garden recorded 49.7 inches in a 24-hour period.
The National Climatic Extremes Committee verified that as a new national record."
That being said, this beach house, in fact none of our beach house rentals, flooded. The rest of the Hanalei valley was flooded. Yes the house was not ready as soon as the road opened since the cleaners were dealing with their own houses flooding. Yes, communication with me might have been hit and miss after this event, though I did speak to these folks while helping a relative clear out mud from her house, answering calls and emails from past guests who were expressing care & concern for us and guests coming in the near future wondering what to expect. (I think everyone booked still came.) Yes there were folks on the beach. Many people were homeless in the North Shore valleys right after the flood. A flood like this has never happened before in anyone's life time or since we have been keeping records. Hopefully this will never happen to this extent again, but climate change is real. Trip insurance anyone?
Enjoy the many cultural events on the island. Watch the boats in the summer, the surfers and whales in the winter. Try zip lining at Princeville Ranch or floating in giant inner tubes down the old irrigation ditches in & litterally through the mountains. Our island is great to see from a helicopter or especially a boat.
