Kalihiwai house description
This spacious modern 3bedroom/3bath home will sleep 6 guests comfortably and is fully equipped for your special vacation! Located across a country road from Kalihiwai Bay - a favorite beach for north shore residents. This beach offers some of the best surfing, swimming and boogie boarding on the Island of Kauai. Not as famous as Hanalei Bay (which is a 12 minute drive away) or Anini Beach (a two minute drive away)but it is certain to be your favorite beach with less crowds, nice sand and both fresh water (Kalihiwai River) and ocean water to play in. The river is a great launching place for stand up paddling. So just order your SUP rentals to be delivered to the house and have a great time stand up paddle boarding on either the river or the bay. Your family and friends can watch you from the house as you paddle out! Great for just lying around and sunning too.
The spacious lanai has a table with comfortable cushions and a bbq. A great place to watch the ocean and relax at the end of another magical day on Kauai.
Close to shopping, restaurants and other fun activities including zip lines, horseback riding, kayaking and hiking trails.

North Shore Vacation
North Shore Vacation
We are family of five (three children ages 7, 9 and 11) and recently stayed 8 nights in this house. The set-up of the house was ideal for our family. It was very clean, spacious and has three nice bedrooms. It is in a very quiet area of the north shore yet within very close proximity of various activities. While this house is very close to a few other houses, the residents keep to themselves and are very quiet. Access to the beach does require a short walk/wade through the river, yet we actually enjoyed it and it never prevented us from accessing the beach. It is a beautiful beach and it is much less busy than other beaches on the north shore. The surf and waves were perfect for our children. The river provides a calmer and safer swimming area for even younger children. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining area is ideal for 5 or 6 people. The house also has a nice front lawn in which young children can play. The house is well located to access Hanalei, Tunnels beach, Kilauea point, and Princeville. It is only about 25 minutes by car to Ke'e beach and the Kalalau trail. Overall, we enjoyed the house and its location. It is an ideal location on the north shore. We would definitely considering returning.

My family and I stayed 5 nights at this wonderful location. We are not very demanding. We found the property clean and had no complaints or problems. This tells me the owners did a good job preparing the property for us. PROs - Location; the house is located off the main road, therefore, there is little traffic. This adds to the sense of serenity at this location. - Location: the house is steps away from the Kalihiwai River, great for stand up paddle boarding. The river is adjacent to the beach. No need to travel by car. - The house is very roomy. - Great WIFI in the living room/front of the house. CONs - Location: The house is not on the beach. To get to the beach you walk past one house, across the street, and you have to cross the river (wade through the water, on foot. Water is 2.5 feet high at one point) and carry your belongings in the air or float them across the water on a boogie board/paddle board. (at first we thought this would be bothersome, but it is not) - Kalihiwai Beach is not a good beach for swimming/snorkeling. It has strong surf, high waves, and can be windy late morning to late afternoon. The beach is good for body boarding and boogie boarding. (this is generally good as it keeps most tourists away. Locals seem to love this beach). - Little or no cell phone reception at the house (we tired both ATT and Verizon service). (If you are trying to get away from it all, this comment should go under the PROs section. The house has a phone and we gave those who tried to reach us the land line number) - House décor has not been updated since the early 1980s Overall, the PROs greatly outweigh the CONs, especially now that you know what to expect. We cannot wait to return.

Manager response: Aloha and thank you for taking the time to review this lovely home. I just wanted to let everyone know that Kalihiwai Bay does not always have high surf and it is a great swimming beach, especially in summer. Our ocean waters change on Kauai so it is nice to have the option for playing in the river too. Much aloha Ofer, we were so happy you enjoyed your time here.

The house at Kalihiwai beach is right across a small street from the beach in a local neighborhood of North shore Kauai. The location is convenient to Hanalei, Princeville and our destination - the Kalalau trail. The house is very well equipped, spacious, and a delightful place to stay. Ginny, the realtor, was extremely accommodating. We look forward to returning.
