The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Tiki Hut is truly an home away from home oasis! CB & Toni are the perfect hosts, and provided everything we could have possibly needed. A short walk to a great beach, close to Hanalei for shopping, great meals (try Hanalei Gourmet...we ate there 4 times!), and a convenient grocery store. The location is truly worth the drive. Being this far out was well worth it! We did a drive around the entire island our last day, as our flight wasn't until 8:30 and we were thrilled we stayed at the Tiki Hut. Felt like the middle of the rain forest and the gardens are exquisite! Complete with a bullfrog who liked to sing most nights! :-)

On all our vacation rentals we always end up saying " This was great but we wish that this detail was different". When you vacation at the Tiki Hut

you will not regret one item. The photos are great but you have to be standing in the yard with the soft breeze blowing off the Pacific to really comprehend it. The Martins love their property and will do their absolute best to make sure you enjoy it the same way. Check out the availability calendar, see how solidy booked it is. I read the guest book one guest has revisited 12 times. Kauai is one sweet, gentle and gorgeous island. You will also meet Nugget, pet him for 25 seconds and you will feel him nuzzle right into you. So stop searching for a rental on Kauai and grab the Tiki Hut.

P.S. C.B. When you chatted about Nugget, I completely understood you.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

CB and Toni have created a tropical oasis and are nice enough to share it with us! The house and yard (it's more like a botanical garden) are impeccable. The house itself is comfortable, spotless and has everything you could want including two beautiful lanais for meals, reading and dreaming. It's so cute, and full of attention to detail from the decorating to the sweet basket of goodies waiting for you when you arrive. If this isn't enough, it's a five minute walk to a beautiful beach, and a few minutes walk more and you are at Tunnels (again, CB and Toni have thought of it all, everything you need for the beach is provided for your use). You're just a hop to Hanalei, but you will feel like you are in your own secluded paradise when you are at the Tiki Hut. It's the perfect place to stargaze, enjoy island showers passing through, and do absolutely nothing at all. You will forget the world while you are at Tiki Hut!

Six stars! Best spot! Super close to Tunnels beach!

  • 5 of 5

This place is phenomenal. We were impressed with the photos, but we were blown away by how incredible the garden is, how adorable the cottage is, and how charming the hosts are. The 3 minute walk to the beach was secluded and fairy-tale-esque, opening to a magical view 2 minutes east of Tunnels beach. The hot tub was especially nice, private, and perfect for unwinding at the end of the day. We have found our new home away from home, and we intend to come back every year, to this wonderful spot.

Congratulations. You've found paradise on earth.

Perfect! Couldn't have dreamt of a more beautiful place to honeymoon! Can't wait for anniversary.

  • 5 of 5

The garden is gorgeous. The whole landscape is like a dream. The location is unbeatable, with Hanalei 2 miles one way, Na'pali Coast 2 miles the other way, and Tunnels Beach basically in the backyard. We had lots of privacy, with the tiki hut being set apart fromToni and CB's house. The amenities, such as the gas bbq, the 2 person hot tub, the boogie boards and snorkel equiptment, hammock, washer and dryer, work table for sorting sea shells, cooler, etc, were all very appreciated! Heaven on Earth.
