Anini Beach house description

If there is paradise on earth, it is at wonderful Anini Beach. Our home is located about 3 miles down Anini Beach Road, away from Anini Park and the crowds that gather or camp there. Rise with the sun and walk for miles on the beach, swim in the warm waters right in front of the house without worry of big waves (unless it is stormy out), bicycle, skate, windsurf, hike to your hearts content.

This is a private home situated in a cove, that has approximately 1650 sqaure feet of living area, and has hosted guests for over 30 continuous years. The two bedrooms are separated from one another for total privacy. The master suite has an attached bathroom, and the second bedroom is located right next to the second bath. Our kitchen is outstanding, with new appliances, if you love to cook, and has a view that most homes at Anini Beach wish for. Plus, this house does not sit up on stilts like most do, which means that with very little effort, it can have wheelchair access. There are only two steps into the master bedroom.

You should know that our home has no television or choice of our constantly returning guests who wish to escape with their families and have real vacation time together. Even the kids don't mind as they have their parent's full attention for the entire time they are there. We do have DSL, though, if you really need a 'what's happening back home' fix.

This home is not a fancy palace with fine is a beach house where you and your family can truly make yourselves at home and wash away the worries of the world by soaking in the beauty that surrounds you. So, if you expect stained glass windows and silk sheets, you won't find them here. And, we do get rain at times and sometimes we do not guaranty the weather nor offer refunds if the weather doesn't suit you. I also have to acknowldege that the County of Kauai has taken it upon itself to create some parking out front (for 2-3 cars) just recently, to my horror as I was there when it happened, but as one guest who has been going over for years told me,'it was eventually inevitable, as it is such a beautiful and quiet spot to spend time at'. But, we do try hard to make your stay special...and can offer rainy day tips if you need them. All you have to do is ask.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1975

          About the owner: I have been one of the longest running vacation rental units at Anini Beach. Read our reviews and guest book. They say it all.

          Why the Owner Chose Anini Beach:
          This is one of the most beautiful spots on earth. I spent my honeymoon there 40 years ago. It is one of the most romantic places I have ever been to. My former husband was born in Honolulu and raised on Kauai, mostly at Anini, and we spent the summers and holidays there with our daughters. My oldest has just had twin daughters and they have started their own Anini tradition. It is a wonderful place to spend with your children, which is what Hawaiian culture is all about.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Waking with the sun rise, coffee and a walk on the beach, incredible sunsets during most of the summer months, watching for the 'green flash' from our deck, usually no waves on the beach to worry about, helping your little ones feed the crabs at dusk, reef walking at low tide, being able to let your children run on the beach most months without worry. Peaceful relaxation. No steep stairs to climb...
