Beautiful Kauai North Shore Beach House

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,500 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Spacious 3 bedroom/2 (1/2) with shared jacuzzi & 1 full bathroom

This spacious modern 3bedroom/3bath home will sleep 6 guests comfortably and is fully equipped for your special vacation! The gas range/oven and full kitchen will provide you and your family everything you need to prepare a great meal. The covered lanai looks out to the bay and is perfect for lounging. Each of the large bedrooms have a toilet and sink and there's a large two person jacuzzi bathtub located between the larger bedrooms to soak all your troubles away!

Located across a country road from Kalihiwai Bay - a favorite beach for north shore residents. This beach offers some of the best surfing, swimming and boogie boarding on the Island of Kauai. Not as famous as Hanalei Bay (which is a 12 minute drive away) or Anini Beach (a two minute drive away) but it's certain to become your favorite beach with less crowds, nice sand and both fresh water (Kalihiwai River) and ocean water to play in. The river is a great launching place for stand up paddling or kayaking. So just order your SUP rentals to be delivered to the house and have a great time stand up paddle boarding on either the river or the bay. Your family and friends can watch you from the house as you paddle out! Great for just relaxing/lying around and sunning too!

The spacious lanai has a table with comfortable cushions and a bbq. A great place to watch the ocean and relax at the end of another magical day on Kauai.

Close to shopping, restaurants and other fun activities including world class golf courses, zip lines, horseback riding, kayaking and hiking trails in the north shore area.

About Ginny Shinn

My passion is Kauai. I love this special island and sharing my home and this island brings me great joy.

Ginny Shinn purchased this house in 2002

Why Ginny Shinn chose Kilauea

Kalihiwai Beach is so special. Here the Kalihiwai River comes into the ocean and dolphins play in the bay in the mornings. It's truly magical!

What makes this house unique

Gentle fresh water river flowing into this beautiful bay makes for a once in life time vacation experience! Close to shopping, restaurants and other fun activities but nested in a quiet neighborhood away from the traffic and noise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Overall, I would rate our stay as a 4 star. The house was clean and tidy, spacious, and completely furnished with everything needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable for the 7 nights we booked. We loved being so close to the beach - literally across the street. The boogie boards provided and beach towels came in handy. The best part of the trip was traveling up the Kalihiwai river on SUP-stand up paddle boards we rented. The area is safe and very quiet, just what we needed for a restful stay. We hope to book this amazing house again in the near future!

Beautiful Kauai North Shore Beach House
average rating of 4.470588 based on 25 reviews

When we come back to Kauai, we will definitely want to stay in this house again!

  • 5 of 5

This house is the bomb! We had 6 adults and we never felt crowded. The kitchen was fairly well equipped and we cooked many meals at home. The location could not be better unless it was actually on the beach. Such a short walk to get to, arguably, the best beach on the entire island (you do have to cross a thigh high stream to get there). Very short drive (< 10 mins) to Foodland grocery in Princeville. The internet connection was fast even with everyone in the house connected at the same time. When we come back to Kauai, we will definitely want to stay in this rental!

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful, spacious, and has a well stocked kitchen! We especially loved the spa tub/shower combo and all the porches, windows, and doors. There were five of us and we could easily be together or all disappear to our own areas for solitude as well.

Fans throughout the home helped with the couple of evenings it felt stuffy. Mostly it felt like we were living outdoors in a very tropical atmosphere. The neighbors were quiet and friendly and you could see and hear the water from the front porch.

For clarification on the layout, the front bedroom is smallest and there’s a full bathroom across the hall with a standard tub/shower. The two back bedrooms are larger and each have their own toilet/sink areas, then they share a large jetted tub with a rain head shower above. Unique! The “middle” bedroom is what I considered the master, as it had a separate sitting area that was lovely. All three bedrooms had doors to the outside with balconies.

A few small inconveniences... The dirt road was loud when big vehicles came through, but that wasn’t often. The river and beach weren’t the best while we were here, I think that was probably the result of the recent north shore flooding (lots of debris and odor)— we remedied that by spending time at Anini beach just down the street. There were only four beach towels and the number count listed inside the hallway closet was wrong on most items. The doors connecting the bedrooms to the shared bathing area don’t line up to lock correctly. Lastly, the boogie boards were both broken.

Overall, it was a great rental and there were definitely more pros than cons. If we come back to Kaua’i I would consider booking again. 😊?

Great location and nice clean home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The weather wasn't as cooperative but the location of the home close to so many pristine beaches made our time great! The river was a bit of a pain to cross than we thought but we rented kayaks and having the river nearby made it very nice! Rooms in the home are very big and the BIG tub was a definitely a plus when we came home on rainy days with a bit of a chill. Hanalei Bay was a quick drive and is the coolest little town on the Island.

Beautiful! Well Maintained!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property does not do it justice. The property is beautiful and well maintained. We were throughly impressed. The house was clean and provided everything we needed for our stay. The beach in front of the house was very cool. My kids enjoyed the rope swing at the river and playing in the waves. We had some rain but it did not put a damper on our time there. The kitchen was perfect since we cooked almost every meal there. I had everything I needed. We had 4 adults and 2 pre-teens. There was plenty of space for us. Also, the neighbors were very friendly. Thank you for a wonderful place to bring my family. I would definitely book again if we came back to Kauai. Mahalo!

Great location! We loved our stay in Kalihiwai!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed here for five wonderful days! The house is roomy, clean and comfortable with a very short walk to an incredible beach, truly a favorite of the locals we met. You do need to wade though the Kalihiwai River to get to the beach but it's only about knee to thigh high. Kayaking or stand up paddling up the river is a must. We paddled up to the bridge but turned around before reaching the waterfall due to a heavy downpour. We also spent time in beautiful Hanalei for surf lessons (loved Hanalei Surf School for lessons and SUP rentals too), snorkeled at Anini Beach and even made it to Waimea Canyon, a little less than a two hour drive away. We had a fantastic and memorable trip and the Kalihiwai house was a great location for us to explore the island!

Pleasant, clean and lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful home on the North Shore. Located very close to Anini Beach (one of our favorites). I loved laying in bed with the windows open (felt very safe) listening to the rain. It was quite and peaceful, away from all the other visitors. Ginny was wonderful to work with. Glad we booked this house. It was great!
