              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: We live a short distance from the property and are available to assist our guests. We upgrade this property frequently! You can contact us directly by calling (808) 635-6500, text to (808) 635-6500, or email to We welcome your call or email!!

              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 dual pane windows, new entry way, new lanai, new covered stairs, new garden sunning area, new second bathroom.
