Property description

The 1-bedroom Ocean View Apt. has 3 big picture windows facing the across-the-street beach with uninterrupted ocean views; the 1-bedroom Cottage sits behind it next to a blooming mountain jungle. Auntie began accepting guests in 1983 and just welcomed second generation honeymooners from one of her first brides and grooms.

North Shore Kauai is for romance, music, healing, relaxation, peace of mind and outdoor experiences. Auntie's is 'home-away-from-home' to writers, musicians, honeymooners, anniversary celebrants, photographers, surfers, marathoners, Trans Pac sailors, travelholics, and those in need of quietude and privacy. The Aloha Spirit is a way of life and not a slogan at Auntie's.

The rentals, light, airy, and simply furnished with island furniture and original, vintage Hawaiian art, represent a bygone lifestyle. If you can forego a big-screen TV and game machines, adapt to the occasional rooster and accept the efforts to keep ahead of minor repairs in this lush, salty climate, you will find your haven here.
As of 1/1/14, the nightly rate is $135 plus taxes. There is also a $125 outclean fee each stay. No security fee is charged. The Ohana Mahalo gives 7 free nights (plus outclean) for every 21 paid nights. We enjoy repeat guests, their referrals and new wanderers.
For cat lovers, Coco is respectful and will usually keep her distance; however, if you are a cat lover, she'll enjoy your attention; but, Coco is NOT allowed in the rentals. Some guests are sensitive to cat hair and we all need to honor their situation.
Tobacco smoking is NOT permitted on the property.
Auntie's Holiday Rentals are permitted Kauai Transient Vacation Rentals (Permit Nos. 1367 & 1369).

NOTE: Auntie's Cottage and Auntie's Ocean View Apt. are separate 1-bedroom rentals. A 3d guest may request an island-style futon for $5/night + taxes.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Teresa's Outclean $135

Notes:

The public bus turns around in Hanalei and does not go as far as Auntie's thus Auntie urges guests to have a rental car if they want to explore the island. Taxis are very expensive.

For bookings at least 45 days before arrival, a 50% deposit within 5 days of booking confirms the booking; 50% balance is due 30 days before arrival. Bookings made less than 30 days before arrival require Postal Money Orders or Wired funds.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: Now a senior citizen, Auntie came to Kauai in 1976 as barely seasoned professional, fell hook, line and sinker for Kauai and rearranged her life to be here. With no jobs on this then-agricultural island, her family moved from the San Francisco area (Marin County) to Alaska 'for the money', working in Juneau, Anchorage and Nome for 5 years. Mesmerized by Alaska's beauty and challenges, she ended up homesteading in the 'banana belt' (on an island 45 minutes by skiff from Petersburg). Alaska remains part of life. After NAFTA, when Kauai morphed from a plantation island to a tourist destination, Auntie left behind her lawyer and merchant mariner careers and focused on Auntie's Holiday rentals, alternative dispute resolution and developing a real estate practice. My Realtor license hangs with O'Connor Realty LLC, 4244 Kilauea Rd., Kilauea, Kauai, Hawaii 96754, a boutique firm yet one of the Top Ten brokerage offices on Kauai. (808-977-8692).

Why the Owner Chose Haena:
Kauai chose me my first day here. That night I realized 'Paradise had 'for sale' signs'. Life was immediately changed so as to be here ASAP. Within 2 years we had purchased this Kauai duplex and rented it out. Then, it was off to Alaska for better paying jobs. (Auntie was paid 2/3d the salary of men law professors; Alaska paid the women and men the same salaries for the same positions). By 1983 we were here full time and never looked back

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Auntie's Holiday Rentals is quiet, casual and private. Guests come here to unwind, heal, honeymoon and enjoy the gorgrous North Shore, the oldest part of the oldest island in the Hawaiian chain. Many relate to Kauai on a spiritual level. Outdoor activities, on land and sea, are abundant.
