About the property

2 Private Bedrooms, 2 Baths plus an outdoor shower and separate 6 ft soaking tub

'Kaiolohia' (kai o low he ah) means “peace of mind or calm sea,' and that's surely what you'll discover while staying in this newly remodeled gated home in quite neighborhood of Haena, an easy 5 minute (less than a 1000 feet) walk to world-famous Tunnels Beach on the north shore of Kauai. Hidden away from the world; in a lush, tropical setting, this charming traditional Hawaiian cedar-wood home is private and features a large covered lanai backing undeveloped (jungle) conservation land with mountain and waterfall views.

Kaiolohia Hale offers the perfect setting for your romantic getaway or extreme adventure. A short easy 5 minute walk (300 meters) to Makua Beach (Tunnels), which is a long sandy beach with a protective outer reef for swimming and snorkeling among sea turtles and the endangered Hawaiian Monk seals. Rated one of the top beaches in Hawaii, Tunnels has very limited parking so being within walking distance is a great advantage. This beach has a spectacular view of Mt. Makana (Bali Hai); the famous backdrop for the classic movie South Pacific. Sailing, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing and seasonal whale watching are all close by. Limahuli Garden, Na Pali coast and Kalalau hiking trail (rated one of the top ten hikes in the world) are just a mile away. Four beach-cruiser style bicycles are available to explore all the north shore sights local style.

Relax in our outdoor hot & cold shower or soak in the 6 foot tub on the lanai with jungle, mountain and waterfall views after a day at the beach, hiking or just taking a reading break.

The quaint surf town of Hanalei has two farmers markets per week (Saturday morning & Tuesday afternoon), dozens of dining choices, shopping, surfboard, kayak & other water sports equipment rentals, lessons and tours available.

Twenty seven years of returning guests endorses Kaiolohia Hale as the premier Kauai north shore rental destination. Protect your vacation investment, only rent a licensed vacation rental property.

Best place on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this house for us and his family (parents and brother). There was more than enough room for us all & we had everything we could've needed!! The beach chairs were very convenient & they let us borrow their coolers & hiking bags when we needed them! They were so warm and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. The view on the back deck was gorgeous every morning. We loved snorkeling at Tunnels and the close walking distance to it. When we come back we are definitely staying here again!

The best place to stay in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about this place. The house is amazing and very spacious. We went with 4 adults and had plenty of space and could have had even more people. The house came with everything we could ever imagine. I wish we had more time to use everything. The beach chairs were our favorite. We spent every morning on their deck and had coffee and it was the most amazing view. We went in December so it was rainy but we could see a waterfall right from the porch due to all the rain. Tunnels beach is beautiful and just a short walk away which was nice bc some of our group could take the car while my husband and I could walk to the beach.

Adam and Kim were the most amazing hosts!! They were so warm and welcoming and always responded so quickly even before we got to the house. They came over to meet us and even brought drinks with glasses that we got to take home. We are so in love with this house and Adam and Kim that we are already booking out next stay.

This place was AWESOME. Thank you Adam and Kim for an amazing stay!

A Little Piece of Heaven In Paradise...

  • 5 of 5

Wow....kudos to husband and wife team, Adam and Kim, for a memory making stay and experience! They were the perfect host and hostess. We were greeted with a wonderful Aloha and cocktail when we checked in. It was sorely needed and appreciated after our harrowing drive in torrential rains and fog to arrive there! The property itself was incredible! Well stocked, groomed and very clean. We especially loved the bathtub on the lanai....very romantic and was just what the Dr. ordered after a round of golf at Makai. My wife is a chef and cooked quite a few meals in-house and she was quite pleased with the kitchen and all its amenities. We treated ourselves to an incredible dining experience at the St. Regis- Kauai Grill. A seven course wine pairing that was to die for! One of the finest we have ever had the pleasure to experience. We also found another favorite restaurant now in Kappa called JO2. It tagged itself as "Natural Cuisine"...or Pacific Rim. A winner in our book as well. We would highly recommend this property and were beyond pleased with our stay. Mahalo Adam and Kim...

a beautiful and tranquil cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time and couldn't be more happy with both our host and the accommodations. Everything Adam and Kim promised they delivered in spades. Our cottage was very private, clean and full of upgrades we really appreciated. Of course being able to walk across the street to one of the worlds most beautiful beaches doesn't hurt either. The only downside to our staying here is that it may screw up my "bucket list" Since we will definitely return to this garden paradise again I may not be able to get to some of the other places on my list. There were simply so many things to do and places to see that in the 10 days we were there we only scratched the surface of what this island has to offer. We look forward to returning and with out a doubt would return to Adam and Kim's magnificent place in paradise.

Wanted to stay there forever!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great place to stay at for our Kauai vacation. Beautiful lush setting, quiet street. We used the bathtub on the deck and the outdoors shower almost every day, very cool. It really is a short walk (or bike ride) to Tunnels and also to the nearby coffee shop & restaurant. Interior is clean and inviting, lots of nice spaces inside and on the deck to relax in.
