About Lauren Francis
We decided to purchase this home within hours of first visiting Kauai. The ocean and mountain views, plus the private grounds, were breathtaking, unlike anything we'd found before. We built the pool and spa and added landscaping. We enjoy this home ourselves as much as possible, living between here and Ohio which is where we are from. Since it is our home, we take special care with upkeep and maintenance and are intimately familiar with all of its features and amenities.
Lauren Francis purchased this House in 2000
Why Lauren Francis chose Kalihiwai
We loved this location because of its privacy and beautifully landscaped grounds and views. Also because we can access all of the North shore beaches within minutes. Our favorite beach is Secret Beach which is accessed right off our same road - Kalihiwai. We are not too far from Kapaa and Lihue (airport and main town) either, 30-45 minutes.
What makes this House unique
We mostly enjoy the views and the privacy. We love watching the whales and the albatross in season. Hours of relaxation and fun enjoying the pool, spa, and new hot tub.

Incredible from the moment you enter the drive way. Amazing views from EVERY room. Well maintained!
Thank you Oliver! We know you traveled a very long way to get to Mia Huna! We hope your daughters birthday was spectacular! We would love to have you back!
About as perfect as you can get!
My wife and I stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon. We've both done a fair bit of traveling and can easily count this property as one of the very best we've seen. From the beautiful grounds, to the spectacular views, Mia Huna was the highlight of our 2 weeks in Kaui and Maui.
The main house, pool house, pool and grounds are absolutely stunning. We also really enjoyed staying at this part of the island: from dramatic cliffs, to the backdrop of lush mountains, to the easy access to restaurants and hiking - it really is perfect.
Lauren, the owner, was also a pleasure to deal with as well. She was quick to answer any questions we had and really helped to make this vacation extra special.
My family spent 6 unbelievable days at Mia Huna and were incredibly happy! We miss it already! The location is so private and peaceful but only 10 min from Kilauea town with the Lighthouse restaurant (yum) and Kilauea fish market ( also yum) and in the other direction The princeville area and Hanalei only 10-15 min away ( too many places to mention). We loved that every room had an incredible view of either the mountains or the ocean. The house is well equipped And very well laid out. The owner Linda and now Lauren could not be more responsive and Kim the local contact was so helpful. The concierge service was great and helped us with many bookings and info. The pool and pool house are fantastic - salt water and solar heated-- a dream! A/c in certain parts of the property are a welcome and rare luxury when the trade winds slow Down. This property is such a great place to come home to after a busy day exploring the incredible island of Kauai- You will not regret staying here! We have never felt so relaxed with the sound of the waves, beautiful views and landscaping, wildlife, wrap around porches. There were many long faces as we drove down the palm tree lined driveway for the last time to the airport to go home. It's a very special place. We hope to come back soon!
Just What We Needed
We were so honored to stay at this beautiful estate. From the moment we first arrived I was awestruck at the surreal beauty all around us. I have never stayed anywhere else that has made me misty eyed! Every single room in the main home looks out at the ocean and it is truly magnificent. I watched the giant waves crash in below for hours. I loved listening to the birds sing and watching the whales play in the ocean. I have never been so relaxed and my two children ages 3 and 6 months have never slept better - my husband says because I was so relaxed! We loved the pool and our 3 year old was in heaven exploring the property, all the rock stairways, and the pool house with the most magical winding stairwell. He also loved the tiny little house hidden behind the pool stocked with endless pool toys, snorkel gear, boogie boards and everything else imaginable. We were blessed with beautiful weather and are all ready to return. We hope to be fortunate enough to return in the future for an extended stay.
Thank you, thank you so very much for such a wonderful stay and for blessing us beyond words with your kindness.
Mia Huna is a real gem on Kauai!
Mia Huna is a real gem on Kauai! The home and grounds are beautiful and very well maintained with their own fruit trees, wild orchids and lush surroundings. The pool and outdoor shower are so enjoyable after being in the ocean and a wonderful way to start the day. The modern hot tube with powerful massaging jets is wonderful for relaxing muscles after long hikes and adventures.
The homeowner Linda and local rep, Kim are always available, responsive and treat you like family. The home is really well equipped and so light with real the big plus of trade cross winds keeping the home cool and comfortable. We have never stayed in a place with such great trade cross winds. It makes all the difference. Looking out over the ocean and the stars at night sitting in the hot tub is a perfect end to a day. The wireless internet is fast and reliable. The home is ideally situated on the island, close to secluded beaches, wonderful restaurants, shopping, adventures and so much more.
We have stayed in the home for several years and highly recommend it to our friends for a dream vacation.
My husband I are celebrating our 60th Anniversary this year, we rented Mia Huna for 3 weeks. Each of our 3 children and their spouses spent one week with us creating memories for a lifetime for all of us. The enchantment begins when you drive down the drive through the estate which our daughter named the Garden of Eden. When we arrived at the house(s) sitting on the ridge and completely private we knew it was going to be special. The Master bedroom is the largest we have experienced in many rentals, the living room is very well done and extremely comfortable. The porch on three sides invites you out to sit and reflect. The kitchen is fully equipped (if you can pull yourself away from the views and pool long enough to cook). The pool house bedroom felt like sleeping in a tree house and each of the couples who stayed there loved having their own retreat. Everything you could hope to find for the beach or pool is in the pool storage house, our Grands especially loved the floats. We took beach chairs, towels, mats and toys along on daily trips to the beach as one week we had two Grands with us as well. There are many beaches on the island but we found ourselves returning to our three favorites. There are several seating areas around the house and I loved finding yet another little set of stairs from one level to the next. Kilauea is just a short distance away, coffee and pizza to bring home from the Bakery and dinner at the Bistro were favorites. The Maui Mocha at Java Kai in Kapa'a is worth the drive, Pure Fruit Smoothies at Moloa'a Fruit Stand were frequent treats and the Banana Pineapple Frozen Custard at Banana Joe's near the house is not to be missed. Sunset Cocktails at the St. Regis and dinners in Hanalei were on the agendas.
The owner has not missed a detail in creating a place that lures you to return and the Property Manager was quick to respond to any questions.
Now that we are back home it is the views, the sound of the surf day and night and the gentle trade winds that we miss the most. Of course we hope to return.
Located in between 2 great beaches - hike or drive. Also beautiful scenic hikes nearby.
