Paradise in paradise

  • 5 of 5

The location was wonderful. The accommodations were comfortable, the landscape beautiful and the owners attentive to all our needs. The basket of local treats and fruit, the chilled bottle of white wine in the refrigerator, Toni's fresh flower arrangements in every room...we can't say enough. Thank you Toni and CB for making this stay absolutely fabulous.

This was our first trip to Kauai and we could not have picked a more perfect place to stay! The Tiki Hut exceeded our expectations. Toni and C.B. have created a tropical paradise, the perfect place to relax and recharge and the location can’t be beat! A short walk to Tunnels Beach where you will find the best sunsets on Kauai and close to the charming town of Hanalei.

Toni and C.B. provide everything we needed - beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel equipment and coolers. We loved having a BBQ to grill dinner and eat by candlelight on the lanai. Thank you sharing your paradise with us!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

The Tiki Hut was a wonderful spot for the final days of our Kauai vacation. On the site, we enjoyed the interior space, ate on the lanais, read in the chair swing and hammock, walked the garden, soaked in the hot tub, and greeted Nugget the dog. It was a perfect location to explore north shore attractions from Hanelei and Tunnels Beach to the Napali Coast. Thank you Toni and C.B.!

Fabulous get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at the Tiki Hut for three consecutive years and we can't imagine staying anywhere else. We both love the seclusion and then there is Toni and CB who just make everything so easy. The house is immaculate, the yard is over the top beautiful and their dog Nugget is certainly part of the attraction.

It's a quick walk to the most spectacular, quiet beach. My sweetie and I live in Santa Cruz which is an amazing place, but sometimes we just need to get away and we can't think of another place more relaxing.

We honestly feel at home here, without having to do any maintenance, yard work, or cleaning.

Once again thanks for a magical 10 day and until we meet again...be well! Cheers.

Enthused, Engaged and Enthralled!

  • 5 of 5

Enthused, engaged and enthralled. That's how we feel since "discovering" the Tiki Hut. We first stayed here 8 days in January 2015. We loved it so much we vowed to return–and we did, a second time the same year, in December, for 2 full weeks. (When we learned the Tiki Hut was available over Christmas 2015 and New Year's 2016, we jumped like a gecko to linger in this wonderful bit of paradise again.)

As "headquarters" for enjoying Kauai's North Shore, the Tiki Hut is a paradise in Paradise, from days of intermittent showers to glorious, blue-sky afternoons to stunning sunsets over "Bali Hai" (Mt. Makana), and with quick, easy access to famed Tunnels Beach. If you temporarily need a more active environment, it's just a 15-minute drive back to Hanalei. Without even leaving the property, the Tiki Hut's tropical garden is rich with exotic blossoms, greenery and texture as well as art objects, sculptures and accents that blend nature and human art together in concert.

The Martins (Toni and C.B.) have built and nurtured and detailed the Tiki Hut –and manicured and the surrounding showcase botanical garden– with love for more than two decades. They are gracious at helpful hospitality, if you need anything, but allow you a perfectly private paradise getaway-hideaway, if you prefer. The cottage is separated from the main house by a carport/utility building, giving the Tiki Hut a separate space amid the landscape of tropical beauty.

We can’t say enough about the well-appointed cottage, and the friendly hosts, C.B., Toni and their sweet golden retriever/lab mix, Nugget, a fine ambassador of aloha. Upon arrival, there's a welcome basket of goodies, including Toni's own banana bread and the Tiki Hut is adorned by numerous fresh tropical floral arrangements, created by Toni's artistry, from the Martins' stunning botanical garden/yard (portions of which are equally lush and colorful as the world-renowned Limahuli National Tropical Botanical Garden, just a mile down the road.)

The Tiki Hut certainly provides what feels like one’s own private tropical paradise. And we will return again.
