Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday estate in Kilauea - Anini Kai

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Lanai, Fruit Grove, Ocean View

Anini Kai, is a luxury beach home located on the North Shore of Kaua'i (TVNCU#-4219 & SP-2011-13). It is spacious, comfortably furnished and well-maintained. All bedrooms have cable TV with wireless internet throughout. The home is a family-friendly retreat only 100 steps from scenic Anini Beach and Reef. Anini is the largest reef in the Hawaiian Island chain and shelters Anini Beach providing fantastic swimming and snorkeling conditions, gentle wave action, and year-around warm water. Large waves can be found a short distance east of the home for those who surf. Guests find it easy to relax at this location and should feel motivated to explore the neighborhood, beautiful sandy beach and shallow water features of the inner reef zone. Anini Kai has its own grove, spice plants and large front and back yard areas. Fruit trees on the property include orange, mango, starfruit, grapefruit, lime, lemon, macadamia and lychee. Tropical foliage and flowers enclose the entire estate.

The nearby surrounding area away from the home is a kaleidoscope of world-renowned beaches, surfer paradise, tropical gardens, wildlife sanctuaries, historic villages and world class golf courses. The resort community of Princeville is about four miles west of Anini Kai and has a grocery store and numerous other avant-garde shops, galleries and restaurants. Stables for horseback riding as well as sites for zip-lining through tropical trees may be found on the way to Princeville. Hanalei Village is about seven miles northwest of Anini Kai and is one of the coolest places on earth. It exhibits stylish boutiques, jewelry and curiosity gift shops as well as restaraunts offering everything from fine seafood cuisine to pizza and burgers. Hanalei is the epicenter of the North Shore and its bay and beaches are perfect for surfing, sun-bathing, cycling, kayaking, paddle-boarding, photography and sight-seeing.

A short distance south-easterly from Anini Kai is the town of Kilauea and popular Kilauea Lighthouse. The lighthouse is a National Historic Site and has amazing views of the ocean, telescopes for whale watching, souvenir shop, botanical garden and sea-bird sanctuary.

Windsurfing, paddle boarding and deep sea fishing are available to experience a short distance down the road from Anini Kai at Anini Beach Park. A favorite and unique activity at Anini Beach is to snorkel with the sea turtles and to explore for seahorses and wide variety of colorful reef fish!

Anini Kai is a County approved vacation rental with number-TVNC#4219. The home is located on Anini Road and is the second house on the left as you enter the primary area of the Anini Beach homes enclave. We provide a 24/7 on call Property Manager (Phil Burchett #808-652-9909) in the event of problems.

About John F. Wark

John is a Registered Professional Geologist and a Principal Owner of a General Contracting Firm and Real-Estate Holding Company head-quartered in Spokane, WA. John holds degrees in Geology and Philosophy. Shannon is retired and keeps herself occupied taking care of the family accounts and holdings. After having had traveled and worked extensively throughout South America and Europe during the last 20 years we found Anini Kai on the North Shore of Kauai in 2009. Following a number of extended vacations at Anini Kai we jumped at the opportunity of purchasing the property from a long-time friend. We have found that the Spirit of the people of Kaua'i, the spectacular flora, fauna, scenery and beaches are unmatched by anywhere else in the world. We and our children love to visit Kaua'i at every opportunity and cherish everything the Garden Isle has to offer. We believe our home, neighborhood and beach allow the perfect blend of privacy, colorful gardens, climate and sporting activities to allow oneself to easily adjust to the peaceful pace of the Island and Aloha Spirit.

Why John F. Wark chose Kauai

Grab a surf board, sunbathe, snorkel, cycle or shell-enjoy everything Anini Kai and its beach location have to offer. The home is well-suited to the simple pleasures of quietly taking time to read a good book on the lanai or contemplating the beauty of a Hibiscus flowers in the backyard. There is nothing more exciting to watch than a new swell of waves entering the North Shore and the grand parade of professional and local surfers answering the call. Anini Beach is perfect for people of any age whether alone, a couple, or family with young or older children. Our children have always enjoyed their vacations at Anini Kai and are always wanting to get back to this Island retreat and its lifestyle. Anini Kai is the perfect home and setting for short and long-term vacations and is located on one of the most enticing beaches and reef complexes of the Islands and entire world. Walk 100 steps-enjoy Paradise!

What makes this estate unique

A short sandy path between two beautiful beachfront estates allows access to the beach and ocean. An outdoor shower is available for use at the rear of the home. Following beach and exploring activities come home to lounge on the spacious lanai then make a tropical meal in our fully-stocked kitchen or prepare an outdoor feast on the BBQ (don't forget to pick spices to flavor your meals from the backyard).

The home and grounds are always immaculately manicured and kept by our friend and Property Manager (Phil) who lives with his wife in Kapa'a. Phil is always willing to answer guest questions and provide guidance for the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was my families 2nd visit to Anini Kai so we already knew it was fabulous! But as with the first time the clean, homey feeling of Anini Kai just amazes me. Every amenity we could have wished for was there! And I love that each visitor is able to elave a few things behind knowing that someone else can use the items. We enjoyed a few extras and left a few extras ourselves! What a wonderful place to relax with comfort and just a few steps from the beach. This time my husband and I got to see a wild pig in the backyard feeding one morning...actually quite exciting. We will be back, it's just the perfect place!

Recommended for: Families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, age 55+.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six loved absolutely loved our stay at this home. What is not to love. The grounds alone are beautiful.....that is before you even make it across the street to the beach. We saw so many things just on Anini beach! I can't believe the number of sea turtles we saw here! John was very prompt each time I contacted him prior to our stay. We had no issues that required that we contact John or his on island property manager while we were there. I loved hearing the roosters every morning, as I was up before they were. We will be back. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking for their very own tropical paradise.

A perfect spot to drop below the radar!

  • 5 of 5

From our arrival, to out departure, we loved this home. It's well maintained and outfitted with everything you might need...and then it's just a short walk across the road to Anini beach! If you're looking for the beauty and quiet of the North shore without being in the midst of a resort, this is the place for you.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

I thought the house would be a little small for our group of 7 but it was perfect!! The pictures don't do the house justice for the size of it but it was plenty big for all of us.

The kitchen is very well stocked with anything you might need. There was a queen size air mattress in the house we blew up for my brother to sleep on. Everything you need for the beach is at the house which was awesome :) Fans in every room which really came in handy at night not just to cool us off but also to down out the roosters.

We absolutely loved staying here and will definitely stay here again!

Beautiful home and beach!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay. The home was as described. We had no problem while we were there with the home. The beach is close maybe not even 100 steps away. There might have been one other family at the beach only one day while we were there. We will definitely be interested in staying there again.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home last year and haven't been able to stop thinking about it! Perfect location, beautiful spacious home, amazing residential neighborhood. The owners are really great people, very professional, helpful and easy to work with. We skipped Hawaii this year and we're feeling pretty miserable. Time to rebook for 2017!

First visit to Kauai

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything that we wanted and hoped for. It was spotless when we arrived. The kitchern was very well appointed and had everything that we needed. My husband really appreciated how clean the grill was and he used it every night. The grandkids ( 5 and 7) loved chasing and trying to catch the chickens. There was everything they needed for the beach and loved picking the star fruit every morning for breakfast. It was nice being close to the beach, but not too close that we had to worry about the kids. We loved having our meals out on the beautiful deck. John was very accommodating when we asked for late check out. We did the tubing adventure which was perfect for the kids. We loved waking every morning to the chickens. We would highly recommend this beautiful home.

Anini Kai is 100 steps away from pristine Anini Beach and Reef. The beach and reef are accessible via a sandy path from the house. When exploring, short interesting trips include traveling north on the Kuhio Hwy towards Princeville and Hanalei. Along the route you'll find horseback riding, zip-lining, fruit and vegetable stands, helicopter rentals, restaurants, golf courses and fantastic scenery. Princeville is about four miles by road from Anini Kai and is a splendid well manicured resort community containing fine hotels, golf courses, tennis courts, shopping mall, galleries, restaurants, grocery store, fuel station, post office, library and bank. Sunset at the St. Regis Hotel is a must for anybody visiting the Island. Three miles past Princeville is the historic town of Hanalei, which is a mecca for surfers, musicians, artists, movie people, tourists and locals. Hanalei is an ideal place for browsing and shopping for sports wear, art & jewelry, ukuleles, snorkel gear, bike rental, groceries and food. The town of Hanalei offers a wide array of restaurants serving everything from fine seafood cuisine to pizza and Bubba Burgers. Hanalei Bay is wonderful setting for watching or participating in surf tournaments, learning how to surf, kayaking, picnicking and just hanging-out. To the south of Anini Kai is the Kilauea Lighthouse and surrounding bird sanctuary. This site is one of the most popular in Kauai and has amazing views of the ocean, gardens and wildlife. Windsurfing and deep sea fishing are available down Anini Road at Anini Beach Park. Activities that may be enjoyed a short distance of the house include, swimming and snorkeling with sea turtles in the protected reef area of Anini Beach; whale watching; fishing; photography; paddle boarding; cycling; shelling and world class golf.
