This house was cute, comfortable, wonderfully relaxing and had everything anyone could want including beach gear. We loved getting to stay so close to Tunnels Beach, interesting lava caves, Ke'e Beach, Ha'ena State Park, the trailhead to Kalalau Trail and in one of the most lush, green and tropical parts of Kauai. If you want to be away from the bulk of tourists this is the place to be. Although the house is on a main road, there is absolutely no traffic at night and it is very quiet. The owners are very conscientious and thorough. It was nice to have air conditioning; we were able to use it to bring down the general temperature in the house, and then rely only on the ceiling fans all night to keep us comfortable. The beds were a perfect combination of support and softness. The house felt very private, and it was always a joy to return to after exploring the island. My kids got a big kick out of the lone adorable gecko that showed up in the shower periodically. I will always return to this rental in the future.

Owner response: We appreciate travelers who love Haena and the value of our property. We are currently working on rearranging our bath to add a 6' double sink, glass top vanity and another window. We are also creating an "outdoor room" in the area of our entertainment/BBQ area. This lower level space will have a flat screen TV and small refrigerator and quiet reading area. We hope to have both of these projects complete by early summer. Yes, we do have one gecko! We have carefully caulked and sealed the kitchen and bedrooms but we still have a friend who occassionally shows up in the shower.

This was our third stay in Haena. We absolutely love the beaches and lifestyle here. While we'd had success with a couple of other rentals in the past, our needs have evolved with our family on each trip. We were so happy with our choice. The location was terrific and just where we expected to be. The pictures are reflective of the charming, clean and comfortable interior. The house was very thoughtfully stocked - lightbulbs, first aid, paper towels, etc. We also took advantage of the beach toys, boogie boards and snorkeling equipment. We definitely hope to return and will recommend this property to our friends and family.

Owner response: Thank you for choosing Haena and our property. We are currently rearranging and restocking the beach toys so we'll have even more supplies and stocking items in the future.

The house was extremely comfortable and convenient to the local beaches, hiking and restaurants. It was exactly what we were looking for. We will want to visit Kauau'i again and this place will certainly be at the top of our list. Thanks for making our trip such a success.

Perfect North Shore Rental
Perfect North Shore Rental
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The property is very well maintained, with excellent kitchen and both indoor and outdoor dining amenities. After hiking the Kalalau Trail the crisp white sheets, modern bathroom, and AC were heavenly. There happened to be an area wide power and water outage during our stay, but management for the rental answered our call immediately and kept us informed with updates. The location was ideal for us, close to the beach, but quiet and private. The neighborhood, Haena, is a fifteen minute drive and two one-lane bridges from Hanalei, so it’s a good idea to stock up on groceries because you won’t want to leave your little oasis once you get there. I can’t stress enough how much my friends and I enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be staying here on our next trip to Kaua'i.

This completely restored home was perfect for us in every way. My daughter and I wanted a clean, well maintained property in Haena and close to the beaches. The owners were extremely helpful and so professional to work with! The property is so much nicer than the pictures. The property is extremely private and you will really enjoy the downstairs lounging area. Missing the sounds of the ocean and waking to the singing birds this morning. Especially enjoyed walking for coffee to the Mediterrean Gourmet in the mornings and don't miss dinner at the Bar acuda - the Tapas are divine - say hello to Ben!. Make time to go to Secrets Beach. Can't wait to come back to this precious home in Haena!

My friend and I spent a week in this lovely house and enjoyed every second of it. We were looking for a low-key getaway where we could walk to the beach and we couldn’t have been happier with this house. It is a 2 minute walk to an incredible secluded beach. The only thing that separates you are multi-million dollar houses. It’s a 2 minute drive to Tunnels beach and a 5 minute drive to Sunset beach. If you want to go into town, it’s a 15 minute scenic drive to Hanalei. Outside: It has a huge, incredibly private, fully-fenced in-yard with lovely tropical landscaping and an outdoor shower. There are two covered lanais (one on each floor), both well furnished. The owners have stocked this place for outdoor entertaining. We took advantage of the gas grill several nights. As far as beach essentials go, they have you covered with 2 or more of everything you want and need to snorkel, bodysurf, or lounge. You can tell they put a lot of thought into making this retreat perfect. Inside: The house is well-furnished and comfortable. The main area has a great open feel that spreads out onto the upper lanai. Both bedrooms are well thought out and the bathroom is modern and well-equipped. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you will need to have a great stay including a to-go drink cooler which we took to the beach and enjoyed all-day Mai Tai’s every day. I loved this place so much that I’m coming back with my boyfriend in a month!

We unfortunately arrived during some of the worst rains in years -- although we weren't able to get to the house on our first day, Mike put us up in another (very beautiful) property. Yes, this is remote -- there is only one road to get out to the North Shore -- but that is what drew us to the home. It is a beautiful home with everything you can imagine. I think you could just bring clothes and be set for a week. There were even 3 or 4 coffee makers! Other reviews mention the proximity to the main road -- it is close, but with the foliage, you can't even see it. I didn't notice traffic noise but that might have been covered by the rain (and when it was sunny -- we weren't at the house, we were at the beach). I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to get away from the crowds. It was more than enough room for our family of 3. We only walked the the beach a couple of times, preferring to drive so that we could have all our gear (including surfboards) handy for when the swell was just right, so I can't comment on the distance. I seemed close enough for us, but we don't mind walking and actually got several hikes in on this trip. Again, a great place. Thanks Mike -- you went above and beyond!

Great stay, great time in Kauai!
Mike's rental property was very beautiful. Not on the beach, but a very short walk away. The house was amazing, not huge but perfectly cozy. We had 5 people and though it was certainly a full house, we all enjoyed our vacation very much and did not feel cramped. There are tons of cooking supplies, a great TV for downtime and a huge deck to hang wet towels/suits. There's also a great downtown patio for bbq'ing. Mike was awesome throughout the whole process, very friendly and responsive to all our questions. We were there for a wedding of friends, who had rented a beachfront house, so we didn't rent a car. However I would recommend renting a car if you're going to stay in this part of Hae'na beach- it's SO beautiful and remote, but if you don't have your own transportation you might fee a bit secluded. All in all 5 stars for Mike and his property- highly recommended and I can't wait to go back to Kauai. Mahalo! Meggie

Wonderful, Relaxing, A Paradise!
Thank you Mike and Donna. The house was perfectly equiped and located within five minutes of the most beautiful beaches and island scenery we've ever seen. You can have it both ways with this great house; be the do-it-yourself beach comber who likes to stay at a very cozy home and cook or, be the sight seeing tourist who likes to enjoy great food out or, do anything in between. We snorkeled with Sea Turtles and beautiful tropical fish. We walked the beaches for hours and swam in the warm ocean water. Although we brought our own gear, the house is equiped with great new snorkeling gear. The air conditioners were perfect, kept us comfortable on the hot days. Time ran out too soon for us, we will come back to this beautiful home. Very clean and comfortable, very reasonable rates.

Thank you very much for allowing our family to stay in your lovely cottage. It was light and airy and we really didn't need the a/c (but it was nice to have it available). Every night we opened all the windows and listened to the breeze and sounds of periodic rain . . . wonderful! We have teenage boys and we loved the close proximity to the fun of the north shore . . . Tunnels, Ke'e, Hanakapa'i trail, etc. We visited the little town of Hanalei almost everyday for Bubba's Burgers, Tropical Tacos or just shopping. The isolation of Haena was exactly what we were hoping for. We bbq'd several nights and enjoyed the outdoor shower almost everyday after the beach. I even walked across the street for an incredible massage with Lynn at the Hanalei Spa. They got me in immediately when I called at the last minute to see if they could. When we arrived on a Thursday, Donna surprised us by meeting us at the home and explained that the dryer had suddenly gone out. She asked when we would need to wash and I told her we'd probably need it by the following Tuesday. We came home from church Sunday afternoon and the new dryer was already installed! Its great that the owners are right there on the north shore to help out and take care of problems like that. By the way, we visited Calvary Chapel North Shore and experienced a great service with fellow believers who love Jesus. We highly recommend you work that into your vacation too! :-) Thanks again for a wonderful stay. We can't wait to do it again!

Why the Owner Chose Haena:
We love Haena! The location of this beach-style cottage is in one of the most beautiful and special places in Hawaii and the world. Between the dramatic mountains and the white sand, there is a sliver of development which includes low density local and vacation homes. Kauai restricts the number of vacation homes in this area. Don't expect to see condominiums or commercial development. All of the nearby activities take advantage of the beauty that is unique to the north shore of Kauai. We get favorable comments from our guests. Once you find this special area you'll want to return. This home is actually in 'Haena' and is not miscoded on VRBO.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
For less than the price of a resort condominium, you can enjoy a vacation home with private upstairs deck. There is not another rental on this corner, cul-de-sac lot. Affordable vacation homes within a short walk to the beach. Home is on two lane, well traveled road. We live on Kauai and lovingly maintain and update this cottage. Guests give us positive feedback and we are happy to see them refer our vacation home to their friends. Recent improvements include 6' perimeter privacy fencing, new windows, new entry way, new lanai, new covered stairs. We are working on completing second bath which may be ready by the summer of 2012
