Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Traveling north past Hanalei, you enter the dense jungle and intense blue waters of Kauai's far north shore. There are no words that can describe nature's beauty in this region. Many beaches, including tunnels and ke'e, are in the area. Trail heads for some of the most memorable hikes on earth are nearby.

The Wainiha beach house brings you old style Hawaii in a jungle setting with a stream flowing in your back yard. Built in 1963 of Polynesian design, the house was the dream of Peggy Slater, known as the Amelia Earhart of sailing. Waterfalls, rainbows, crashing surf, fragrant flowers and exotic colorful birds will surround you. Home has high speed wireless internet, phone, cable tv, and full kitchen.

Bedroom 1 has a King bed. Bedroom 2 has a King bed and Bedroom 3 has a Queen bed. There is A/C in the master bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was beautiful and the scenery around us was amazing! The house is an older home, but has so much character. The three bedrooms are "railroad" style where one is right after another, so you have to go through each room to get to the living area if you are at the very last room. (So keep in mind that there isn't much privacy) But, there are doors for each room that lead to the front lawn, so you can avoid going through each room if you don't mind going outside, then through the front door. Everyone was happy at the house and would go back again when visiting Kauai.



The beach is directly across the street and is a beautiful view to wake up to every morning. The only thing is that it isn't very easy to get to, but there are other beaches less than 5 minutes away that you can drive to.

Reviewer Comments:

I am story to say I cannot give this place a good review. From the very beginning communication with Liz from Country Brokers was unsatisfactory. Two days before our arrival I e-mailed her and called her to leave messages that we needed to know how to get the key or to gain access to the house. We heard nothing. We arrrived there at 6 PM hoping to find it unlocked but it was not. Our efforts to call her, contact her, were fruitless. We finally contacted Home Away folks and after nearly an hour on hold with them, either they were finally able to get through to her, or she finally got our messages, and her response was "Are you in yet?" How in the world would we have gotten in, short of taking off a screen and crawling through an open window? Poor, poor, poor. The picture leads you to believe you might have acccess to that ocean in front of you, but you do not. The house is right on the road and right in front of a bridge with loose planks that rattled EVERY time a car drove across so it was impossible to sleep with windows open. And too stuffy to sleep with them closed. The 3 bedrooms are laid out in a row and you have to walk through the first to get to the second and then thru the second to get to the third. The bathroom walls between the 2nd and 3rd bedroom do not go all the way to the ceiling, at least in the back bedroom, so you hear all bathroom noise. The house had a musty smell. The bed in the 3rd bedroom was very nice, the one in the 1st bedroom sagged to the middle. The washer/dryer were very nice to have and worked just fine. The Wi-Fi was very good. It was nice to have beach chairs, boogie boards, towels and coolers available for our use. There was no hand soap provided in the bathrooms which would have been nice.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you didnt fully enjoy your stay. We want all of our guests to have an exceptional experience. The description of the bedroom layout is clearly stated in our verbage as well as beach access. THe lead picture is the actual view. As you will see in the other reviews most guests fully enjoy the charm, quaint feel and old hawaii style that this home offers. Hopefully you can come back and stay in another more suitable property in the future! Mahalo

Reviewer Comments:

This rental is awesome. Especially if you're looking for something we were. I stayed with my pregnant finance and two toddlers. We wanted something off the beaten path and not touristy. However it's close enough to Hanalei if you need anything. It's where jungle meets ocean. Perfect for what we were looking for.

Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay at this fun and funky older Hawaiian home. The view was amazing!! & the local dog visit were fun....(lucky the dog and his cat friend). The road out front was a little hard to get use to.... As we are from a very quite mountain home. The beach access was not easy.....but just a short drive north was the most beautiful beaches in Kauai! For the price it is a great rental! (The coffee situation could be updated)

Reviewer Comments:

Absolutely stunning ocean views from every room of the house. Location is far enough away from the towns/cities to promote a very relaxing vacation. But it's also only a 10-15 min drive to local shops and great food. House had every amenity we could have wanted (wi-fi, towels, washer/dryer machines, coffee pot, dishes, cookware, etc.). Giving 4 out of 5 stars overall only due to a issue with the hot water heater while we were there. It occurred the day before we checked out so we had cold showers our last 2 days. But the management company was immediately responsive and sent someone out the next morning to begin repairing/replacing the unit.

Reviewer Comments:

When I travel, I like to feel like a part of a place, which is something a resort just can't do. This place, however, delivered. It was like staying at a friend's slightly funky beach house. The master bedroom was particularly great because it felt like staying deep in the jungle with the bull frogs, birds calling, and tropical showers late at night just outside our window. Didn't even need the A/C since the home gets great cross breezes. LOVED the location on the north convenient to all the best beaches. Super comfortable beds. We had a few issues come up which the management handled in record time. The only downsides: the bedrooms are all in a row as other reviewers have mentioned (with squeaky, stubborn doors) making privacy a bit of an issue as you need to walk through them to get to the main house. There is an outside door from one of them, but perhaps not that practical. The beach is directly across the street and it was wonderful to hear waves crashing at night, but you should know that there's no easy beach access. You can get there with a 20 minute scenic walk however. (It's not a swimming beach anyway so you may as well take a short drive to any of the incredible nearby snorkeling sites instead.) Very limited counter space in the kitchen for cooking, but we made do. Overall though, we'd stay here again in a heartbeat. A great value!

Owner's Response: Hi you so much for your spot on review of the beach house. Glad you had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. As a side note the home will soon undergo some renovations so next time you come back I think the kitchen will be beyond your expectations, hope to see you again. Warmest Aloha from
