  • Enjoying house living on Kauai

    "Our extended family of 5 really enjoyed being in a home. Best of all was having the beautiful beach so close. We were on it everyday rain or shine; and there was plenty of rain. The view from the lanai is fantastic. The house had all the amenities that we needed. The only fault I give it is the low lighting in all the rooms especially the bathrooms. We had a couple of glitches (the refrigerator leaked all over the floor). The property management was right on top of it, having a repairman come out within hours of calling. There was house construction in the neighborhood, but that proved to be no problem at all (noise wise). I would definitely recommend this home for a family. Be ware that the house is raised and has stairways to reach the living area. Carrying luggage and groceries up the stairs might prove troublesome to some people. Too bad there isn't some kind of elevator system for luggage, etc."

  • A shining gem of a home. Stop looking....this is the place!

    "Where to start....this place exceeded our expectations by a long shot. The photos and virtual tour make it look incredible but once you are there it is much more special. Christine and her family have thought of every detail and more. The location is right in front of one of the best snorkeling spots we found on the North Shore. We snorkeled with sea turtles almost every day and views of breaching humpback whales were a common occurrence while sipping our coffee on the deck. It's an amazing property and well designed. My husband and I were there with our 6 year old to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and this beautiful home played a huge part in our magical trip. We enjoyed picking up fresh fish in Hanalei at the Dolphin Fish Market and cooking dinner on the grill most nights. Who would want to eat out all the time when you can cook in this beautiful and fully equipped kitchen and dine overlooking the rainbows and whales! The bathrooms are fully equipped, even with toiletry essentials (toothbrushes, razors, q-tips, lotions, etc). They thought of every detail to premeditate our needs. We brought our own snorkel gear, but the house is fully equipped with lots of snorkel gear, quite a few boogie boards, two sea kayaks, sand toys (we donated more), beach chairs, straw beach mats, a cooler and a beach umbrella. We only used the two master suites on the main level and both of the beds were very comfortable. They do offer wifi, and it worked perfectly to check in with work while we were there. We enjoyed being able to sit in the hot tub when it was drizzling out and our son really enjoyed his job of feeding the fish each day. The location is superb! The beach is beautiful, clear clean water with a break off of shore offering a protected reef for snorkeling....even when the seas are rough. It's a short drive to Tunnels and Ke'ke beaches as well as the trailhead for the Napali trail. It's also walking distance (by road or beach) to a nearby coffee shop. The drive into Hanalei snakes along the coastline and offers beautiful views. Hanalei is a quaint beach town but it's nice to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the ocean in Haena. No roosters! What else can I say but we are so thankful and feel so blessed that Christine and her family share this home with us travelers. Many, many Mahalos! We will dream of the day when we can return and we will cherish the memories we made here forever! Mahalo!"

  • Can't wait to come back

    "We loved our week in the Mermaid house and felt right at home. After a busy week of adventuring on the South/West side of the island we sunk right in to the cozy North. The beaches are amazing and we swam with the magical turtles every day whether it was at Tunnels or right out front at Haena Beach (which has AMAZING snorkeling when the waves calm themselves). Our kids (12 and 6) loved lounging on the couches and looking at all the treasures in the house. My youngest talked about Peggy as if they were long friends. If you are up for it a three hour ramble will take you to the foot of the Napali and back. Sunrise is the perfect time to do this so you can watch the surfers waking up and snaking out across the reefs to get to their morning waves. The local birds are more than happy to ensure you wake up in time to greet the sun :). We didn't go into town much so can't speak to the civilization in the area but the people we met on the beach were always so lovely and happy to share a story or two! We hiked the Napali Trail to the first beach then turned inland to find the waterfall. It was BEAUTIFUL. Our kids are seasoned backcountry hikers so managed very well but its a tougher trail with many stream crossings and challenging trail in places. We will definitely be back to this lovely home and island!"

  • Great spot on the north side of island

    "We were very happy with our stay at Barefoot Hideaway. The house was very clean and had just about everything that you would need. The location is beautiful and lush. We appreciated it because it was away from the fuss of resorts and other issues that come with crowds of tourists. We had been warned thru other travel guides that the beaches nearby would be packed and difficult to find parking - we on the other hand found parking in every beach and wonderful places to relax and snorkel. We loved Kauai! One of the only things that we thought would be awesome to have here were bikes! It would have been great to take off in the morning for a ride down to Ke'e beach. Thanks for the great place. We will recommend it to others."
