Wainiha cottage description

At Kauai Valley Retreat you get access to the North Shore of Kauai's best beaches, and a home away from home filled with warmth and history. It’s a quaint cottage with the best of what Kauai has to offer right outside its door!

Our North Shore retreat is located on the North Side of the island of Kauai, where prevailing trade winds provide a natural air conditioning. We enjoy the sounds of the Wainiha River and mountain views, while the lull of crashing waves roll a rhythmic ocean soundtrack right up the valley! We are two miles from Tunnels Beach (of Bali Hai fame) and four miles from Ke’e beach, the spectacular trail head of the famous Kalalau Trail, the gateway to the Napali Coastline.

Even closer is renowned Lumahai Beach (of South Pacific fame) and a few more miles from Lumahai is the charming town of Hanalei resting on the shore of the grand two and half mile crescent sand beach of Hanalei Bay!!

This affordable cottage maintains a comfortable queen size bed, with cotton linens provided. The cottage has a full size bathroom, complete with tub/shower combo, pedestal sink, toilet and skylight! And for a refreshing rinse off after the beach there is an outdoor shower. This location is an affordable accommodation for a couple.

Kauai's North Shore host several delicious restaurants within easy driving from this cottage, but if you want to have a night at home relaxing from your days adventure, the kitchen amenities will allow you to cook some tasty meals, and keep your drinks cool!

From the Lihue Airport to Kauai Valley Retreat you will travel a little over 35 miles. It can take up to an hour to go that far, remember everyone, it’s island time!
