"My husband and I stayed at the Nakea Beach house for 6 nights and would definitely stay there again. Anini Beach is not well-known to most tourists so if you want a more private experience, this is it. The house has an incredible vibe, soaring ceilings, epic views of the aqua ocean from the windows and then there's that huge deck. We ate every meal out there. I love that it is at the end of the road and there are great places to walk to along the beach. And if you choose not to go into town you wan walk up the mango trail to the small Princeville market located inside a Hotel for some canned goods or gourmet grub. Therese and Cliff were both great. And the house has everything you will need."

The perfect place for 10 nights! Anini beach only steps away
"3 couples stayed here for 10 nights and we were all very comfortable. There is a view of the ocean through the dining room window and Anini beach is only steps away. This beach was calm and I'm told it has good snorkeling and sea turtles, but we never saw any here. We saw the most turtles over on the South side. The weather wasn't perfect during our stay, but it was still paradise and we snapped the most amazing sunrise photo with the sun coming up behind Kilauea light house. When we needed something from the owner, Clover, I simply texted her and it was kindly delivered to our doorstep (extra fans or whatever). The house is extremely comfortable with tons of extras (towels/beach chairs/snorkel gear/books/movies) and I liked that there is a washer/dryer, recycling and composting!! Seating at the bar area in the kitchen could use a few more tall chairs, as we all seemed to gather there. We cooked most of our meals at home and went to foodland nearly every day. If you like POKE, this is the place to get it! We spent a lot of time in Hanalei and loved Calypsos!! We drove to the end of the North side a few times to Ke'e Beach (good sunset). We ate at Sushi Girl! If she offers the honeycomb roll...TRY IT! We hiked the Napali Coast to the beach. That took like 4-5 hours, but is the most amazing view you will ever see. You must drive the Waimea Canyon and take a boat ride to the Napali Coast! When on the west side, be sure to catch the sunset at Salt Pond Beach. This was actually our favorite beach on the island and the sunsets are amazing! Not enough attention is given to Queens Bath either, which was only a 5 min drive from the house, in Princeville. There is a small, but gorgeous walk to an expansive cliff view over lava rock(wear your reef shoes). We saw several turtles here and a cliff jumper! On the way out, we stopped at the small, but picturesque waterfall. Its only about hip deep and you can get in and let the water fall onto your back. Its just beautiful in there! Watch out for the RED MUD. The South side is dryer, but the North side is one big botanical garden. If you spend ANY time whatsoever in a forested area, keep bug spray on hand. Mosquitos are relentless.
We loved this location, the house and our time on Kauai!! Oh and one special shout out to Clover, who saved us when our car battery had died!! We would have missed our flight home if she hadn't given us a jump! Thanks Clover, for everything!"

"We have just concluded a wonderful month long stay at the Villas on the Prince #28. The condo was clean, well equipped and maintained. Appliances were new and in good working order. The beds were comfortable and had beautiful linens and bedspreads. Everything was fresh and even smelled luxurious! The starter supplies were greatly appreciated. We loved the views from the large windows or the balcony and enjoyed relaxing on the secluded patio off the master bedroom. The convenience of a five minute walk to a grocery store, shops,the library and restaurants was a bonus. Hanalei is a five minute drive and several beaches are five to ten minutes away. The neighbourhood is very quiet and secure. Our stay was made even more relaxing as a result of the thoughtfulness of the owners of this villa. They contacted us soon after we arrived to ensure that all was as we hoped and encouraged us to contact them directly any time that we had a question about anything. One occasion when we did, they responded immediately, were most helpful, and showed sincere concern that our stay would be as enjoyable as it turned out to be. We definitely look forward to returning to to this perfect home away from home in the very near future."

"Noho Kai is one of the most wonderful houses we have ever had the pleasure of renting! My husband and I, two daughters, and aunt stayed here for a week. The house is even more beautiful than in the photos - huge vaulted ceilings, tasteful decorations, lots of books. The kitchen was incredibly well-stocked, and there were plenty of beach towels and beach toys including snorkels, boogie boards, etc. It was such a luxury to just cross the street to the beach access path and be on Anini Beach in less than a minute from leaving the house. And then to be able to walk back over and hose off the beach toys and ourselves downstairs before heading back upstairs to the house. My aunt and kids snorkeled for hours and loved all of the marine life they saw.
The manager, Todd Anderson, was so helpful and kind before, during and after our trip - answering all of our questions promptly and getting our security deposit back within a very short time.
We loved the proximity of Nono Kai to Princeville and Hanalei. We recommend Tiki Inki for dinner (at the Princeville Shopping Center). We also recommend Kalypso in Hanalei. We loved the smoothies and fresh fruit and pastured eggs at Banana Joe's fruit stand. Also, don't miss Na Aina Kai botanical gardens! Lastly, we recommend Blue Hawaiian helicopter tours - best was to see the Na Pali Coast other than by hiking or kayak!
The only negative (which is not the fault of Noho Kai at all) is the roosters. Apparently they don't crow only at sunrise, who knew? Not this suburban family ;) So we would highly recommend ear plugs unless you want to be woken up at random times (like 2am) by a rooster crowing!"
