A classic plantation style home, this Haena beach house, known as Hale Pulelehu'a (The Butterfly House), is a wonderful place for your family & friends to experience the island lifestyle on the North Shore of Kauai. Immaculately cared for, Island art & historic photographs help create a serene environment that ensures a memorable experience.
The Hale Pulelehu'a (The Butterfly House) is lovingly cared for and provides easy access to all of the activities of Kauai's North Shore. A scenic ten minute drive past historic Hanalei town and only one and a half miles from the end of the road at Ke'e Beach and the start of the breathtaking Kalalau Trail and the famed Napali coast is found. Directly across the street from the home is one of the most beautiful private sandy beaches on the north shore. World famous Tunnel's Beach, which is one of the finest seasonal snorkel and surf locations is a spectacular 5-10 minute beach stroll away. Right down the road on the ocean you can dine at the Mediterranean Gourmet Restaurant or visit the Napali Art Gallery and Coffee House with some of the best coffee on the island.
You will also be able to enjoy historic Hanalei town, where you will find restaurants offering sushi, burgers, vegan dining, fresh fish, Pacific Rim, pizza, Brazilian, and tapas. Several restaurants have been featured in Food and Wine and Gourmet Magazine. Also, don't miss the Hawaiian Shave Ice.
Hanalei has a variety of charming boutiques and services, including yoga and massage, as well as shops to rent kayaks, snorkel gear, or bikes. You can fish and kayak at the Hanalei pier and river. There is seasonal world class surfing as well.

I have been returning to Kauai since first living here in 1975. Hale Pulelehu'a is located on the best beach on the entire island of Kauai. We designed Hale Pulelehu'a to appeal to our multi-generational family. The house is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the North Shore and is close to so many great activities. There are so many spectacular things to do within walking distance of the house that you may not even need to get in your car!
Our group stayed over Thanksgiving for 9 days. In person the house is better than the pictures indicate. It's more spacious and well appointed with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable: beach towels and toys, kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking equipment, nice covered parking, and the guest house (tree house) was close but private. It really is 50 steps to the beach, and the beach was amazing and virtually private. A short 10 minute walk down the beach leads to tunnels beach, which is great snorkeling. The amazing views of the coast are had from all around! It's a short 5 minute drive to Hanalei--this quaint village on a beautiful sandy beach perfect for surfing, kayaking, and beach going. The owners were amazing to work with and communicated well throughout the process. We'll be back!
This property is perfect for a large group. They do not lie when they say "steps from the beach". I love this part of the North Shore. It's real quiet and chill and only a couple miles away from the Napali Coast trail head. The house is very well stocked for anything needed for a beach day. I was very impressed with the guest house in the back which is equipped with its own outdoor shower. I honestly couldn't ask for anything more and Bill the owner was so easy to work with. This house is highly recommended.
This is a great clean well appointed house with plenty of room and good communal space for families to hang out. Had everything we needed to both nest and explore. Very beautiful setting on quiet dirt road street, with access to beautiful beach across the street (but a little too choppy for swimming when we visited). A great place to stay if you want to explore Napali coast - 10 mins from end of the road beach and hiking trail. A little isolated for those who want to be in the swing of things - 15 min drive over 7 one lane bridges back to Hanalei, but we got used to that (and a little coffee shop and bar are located at the other end of the dirt road). They had high chair and pack n play which was great. We did try shipping some baby items but they got sent back after reaching the island so don't count on that. Overall, very pleasant and satisfying stay.
A group of 9 young professionals travelled from all over the US to stay in this house for a friend's wedding. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Both the main house and the "tree house" were beautiful and exactly as described. Everything we needed was provided, including bedding, towels, washer/dryer, and even some watersports equipment. The location couldn't be better -- the house is right across the street from a spectacular beach and it's about a 10 minute drive to the nearest town. The owner and property manager were very responsive and made our stay perfect in every way. Seriously, this house is absolutely incredible!
If you want to feel like a full time north shore Kauai resident then this is the property for you. Beautiful grounds, manicured and lush. Plenty of off street parking. Indoor and outdoor areas for relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere. Outdoor showers are a blessing with a large group, especially if there are childern. Helps you keep the sand out of the house, rinse off the salt water and sand or just take your full shower, nice.
The main house is so comfortable. Full kitchen, well stocked with dishes and small appliances. Always a few spices and condiments available also. And everything works great. Nice to have a washer and dryer to keep up with beach towels and and personal items. Living and dining area comfortable for 9 of us. Everyone had a nice room and bed. Nice baths as well.
The Tree House was perfect for the grandparents! Our own little get away spot. The fridge was a big help storing extra food and beverages for the group. Both the main house and the Tree House have stairs to the living areas.
And the beach is almost at your front door, go across the street and down a path and you are there. Lots of beach and snorkeling equipment in the toy storage area to pick and choose from, including an ice chest and cooler bags, beach chairs, boogie boards, it's all there waiting for you to pick what you need and go.
Our second visit to this property and we will be back
Hale Pulelehu'a is a delightful house tucked in a quiet neighborhood in Haena. It really is just a short walk to the beach and walking distance to Tunnels Beach. The house is spacious, clean, and well-kept. There were plenty of linens, beach towels, and a very well-stocked kitchen. The outdoor shower is lovely! Great spot on the North Shore and very good access to shops, restaurants, and hiking trails. The owner was easy to contact and responsive. No problems with anything in the house or on the grounds. I would highly recommend to friends and family looking for a quiet, authentic North Shore experience!
