Anini Beach house description

Retreat from the cares of the world in this tastefully furnished, one-bedroom, one-bath, oceanfront home.

Punana Aloha, which means 'Love Nest' in Hawaiian, is a one-bedroom, one-bath hideaway on incomparable Anini Beach. Constructed of natural cedar throughout and boasting a wood-burning fireplace, the cottage is the perfect choice for a vacation to simply 'get away from it all.' Restricted to a maximum of two guests, the cottage is ideal for honeymoons or anniversaries.

Located on Kauai's verdant North Shore, Anini Beach is a haven for the traveler who wants to experience the unspoiled natural beauty of Hawaii. Protected by a large outer reef, the quiet waters of Anini are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, and sunning. Follow Anini Road almost to the spot where it dead ends at Anini Stream and you will find Punana Aloha on a beautifully landscaped half acre of land fronting the ocean. The ocean view is unobstructed, and your toes will touch the sand of the beach less than 75 yards from the front door.

Features include 896 square feet of living area with two covered lanais, two reclining chairs in living room, built-in desk/office area, daybed, comfortable king-sized bed in bedroom, full bathroom with tub/shower, ceiling fans, washer and dryer, telephones, large charcoal barbeque/smoker, chaise lounges, and beach chairs.

The fully-equipped kitchen contains solid oak cabinets with a large pantry, a four-burner gas range with oven, 20' refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, six-foot bar/serving counter/cooking island, coffee maker, rice cooker/steamer, toaster, blender, mixer, etc.

The living room has a home entertainment center which includes a 27-inch color cable TV and a VCR/DVD player.

We provide FREE HIGH SPEED INTERNET ACCESS (DSL), FREE UNLIMITED LONG DISTANCE CALLING (within the USA), CALLER ID, 3 WAY CALLING, AND *69 (enabling you to dial the last number who called you). There is a cordless phone in the kitchen area, and one more in the bedroom. The kitchen phone also has an answering machine.

Punana Aloha is fully permitted as a transient vacation rental by the County of Kauai. Our Non Conforming Use Certificate number is 1254.

              Year Purchased: 1980

              About the owner: Nakea Kauai Vacation rentals offers three properties for rent, a one bedroom ocean bluff condo at Sealodge in Princeville (Kai Nani), a three bedroom beachfront home (Hale Kai) and a one bedroom beachfront cottage (Punana Aloha). The latter two are both located at the secluded end of incredible Anini Beach. All three properties are owned and lovingly cared for by Bob Nakea and his wife, Dotty. Bob is a native Hawaiian whose family's roots on Kauai go back to the 1800's, and Dotty is a mainland transplant who has been in the islands for over 48 years. No attention to detail on the properties is overlooked, and each home is furnished with the comfort of its guests foremost in mind.

              Why the Owner Chose Anini Beach:
              In the North Shore's idyllic setting you can: swim, surf; sunbathe, scuba dive or snorkel, wind surf (with rental boards and lessons available at Anini Beach Park), go shore fishing, book a deep water charter; beach comb, go horseback riding at nearby stables, hike the island's awesome trails, enjoy gourmet dining, work out at the Princeville Spa (featuring daily and weekly memberships giving access to the latest exercise equipment, large lap pool, Jacuzzi, wet and dry saunas, and numerous aerobics, yoga, aqua -size and weight training classes), pamper yourself with a facial treatment or full body massage, whale watch, take a Na Pali Coast boat tour or a sunset sailing cruise in Hanalei Bay, book a helicopter tour of fabulous Waimea Canyon, play tennis, enjoy worldclass golfing, drive around the island and take in the sights, or just simply lie back and bask in the simple glory of being in one of earth's most naturally beautiful and peaceful places. We will be happy to assist you in your activity planning. Just let us know what you would like to do!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Punana Aloha's location almost at the dead end of Anini Road, where there is only a single row of homes along the beach, means that our guests enjoy quiet and privacy not found along most of the rest of Anini . The protecting reef (one of the largest in Hawaii) assures that the waves break far out and not on the shore, and the calm shoreline and shallow waters make the area in front of the house ideal for swimming and snorkeling most of the year (except during periods of high winter surf).
