Hanalei house description

We offer a lovely plantation-style home, in the middle of Hanalei, on majestic Hanalei Bay... Steps to the Beach, Hear the Surf!

World famous Hanalei Bay, voted the number one beach in America is less than 200 yards away and will provide you with the ultimate beach-going experience. Take in the sunrise, waterfalls, rainbows, boats, surfers, Bali Hai sunsets and incredible ocean beauty, while you try to figure out which parts of the mountains make up 'puff the magic dragon.' Bay activities include: snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, surfing, bodyboarding, hiking, walking, jogging, and, of course, relaxing.

The home is situated in a tropical park-like setting - one of the only large lots in Hanalei (that's not beachfront). From the large covered lanai, you can watch the Waioli river flow by on its way to the Bay or kayak/SUP/paddle down the river to the ocean. Enjoy an incredibly romantic sunset as the sun disappears behind the NaPali Coast line, or gaze at one of the largest and oldest monkey pod trees on the island and ponder its strength as it has withstood multiple tsunamis and three hurricanes. The home's interior won't let you forget you are in Hawaii as it welcomes you with aloha. Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, vaulted exposed beam ceilings, and old-style plantation details invite you to relax. The gourmet kitchen includes all stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and cherry cabinets. There are two large bedroom suites, each with closet, private toilet, bath tub and shower and vaulted ceilings with fans. A sleeper sofa is located in the family room as well, with an additional half-bath. The tradewinds fanning the palms and the sounds of the ocean will sooth you all night long.

Historic Hanalei town is a five to 10 minute walk away. Excellent restaurants, quaint shops, grocery and health food stores, farmer's markets, activities desks, yoga, Pilates, day spa, massage, surf shops and churches are all conveniently located in Hanalei town. Princeville resort and spa are just a five minute drive up the hill, offering you three world class golf courses, tennis and a day spa.

This home is perfect for families up to five or one to two couples with or without children. Please note, this house is non-smoking and Hawaiian style, meaning no shoes are worn inside the house.

              Once guests visit Kauai, and discover Hanalei, they rarely stay anywhere else. Hanalei has it all - spectacular beauty, ocean, surf, beach, mountains, and town with unique shops, great restaurants, grocery stores and farmer's market.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: We built this house and lived in it for a year while we built our present home. We all surf (even the dog!) and each enjoy Hanalei and Kauai in our own way. Danny, my husband loves to fish, Lucas, our son, is a surfer. I run or walk the bay daily, swim or surf almost daily and also hike the north shore trails. We've traveled the world and always LOVE coming home to Hanalei.

              Why the Owner Chose Hanalei:
              Having lived in multiple houses/locations in Hanalei we realized it's rare to find a home that isn't right next door to another. While this home is adjacent to our home, it's also adjacent to a 1/2 acre lot that rolls down to the Waioli Stream and offers beautiful views, a peaceful setting and a feeling of being a bit away from it all (even though you're right in town and a couple blocks from the beach).

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Na Pali mountain view, river access (paddle a kayak, surfboard or SUP down the river to the ocean), giant yard to play in, 1/2 pipe skateboard ramp, and a short walk to the beach and ocean.
