Hanalei cottage description

Come relax in our Hanalei Bay Carriage House and stroll through lush tropical gardens filled with hundreds of orchids growing in the trees. Only 30 seconds from the sands of beautiful Hanalei Bay, our property is situated to offer the best panoramic views of the mountains to the sea.

Having lived in the Carriage House while building our main house, it is a very livable two-bedroom, one-bath, fully-equipped, vacation home. The lanai, with dining table, overlooks the gardens and lily pond with views of the Pacific Ocean as well as the mountain peaks. Through the windows of the main living area feast your eyes on the majestic mountains.

For your added enjoyment, and 'Fun in the Sun,' we have provided beach towels, chairs, and boogie boards. Upon your return from the beach, enjoy a refreshing hot shower in your private outdoor shower with towel bars to dry your beach towels.

The Carriage House is located just six minutes from old historic Hanalei Town with shopping, several excellent restaurants, as well as rental shops for whale watching, boating trips, fishing, helicopter rides, and renting kayaks or bikes. It is only two minutes from the Hanalei Pier for fishing and Hanalei River for kayaking (the Hanalei River is registered as one of the Ten Heritage Rivers of the Nation). Your accommodations are also only a quick, 15-minute drive from The Princeville Ranch Stables for horseback riding along the mountain trails and up to waterfalls for picnicking and beautiful vistas. Also, Princeville Ranch Adventures, offering Zipline tours and Jungle Waterfall kayaking and hiking adventure tours.

Come play with us on Hanalei Bay; 30 seconds from 'A Little Slice of Heaven'!
