  • Truly magnificent property - exactly what we were looking for!

    "Where do I start? This house is just as advertised...but better! The location is outstanding....we enjoyed almost every meal outside on the lanai and spent a lot of time relaxing on the lanai and watching the waves and palm trees. Almost every room in the house has jalousie windows and oscillating or ceiling fans so the air flow throughout the house keeps things very comfortable. This is a true family cabin....not fancy but cozy and oozing with charm. The appliances in the kitchen are older but they worked fine. There is a public beach access along the property line but a thick hedge shields the house from the very few people who walked to and from the beach. The other side of the property is similarly thickly hedged. Although there is large house behind the property, it doesn't really create any privacy issues since all the Hale Kilo I'a rooms are oriented toward the beach and there was a tall hedge shielding Hale Kilo I'a from the house behind. The beach is beautiful and walkable. It is close to several fantastic swimming and snorkeling locations, although the waves and currents can be pretty strong on the north end of the island during the winter, so we found that the south end beaches were a bit more conducive to swimming and snorkeling while we were there. The house had puzzles, movies, games (indoor and out), beach equipment, and lots more to help you take maximum advantage of the location. The house felt very secure. There were dead bolts on the doors and an additional secure location inside for valuables. The master bedroom was very comfortable and the linens were of high quality. The cell service and the password-protected wi-fi worked perfectly, as did the electronic equipment in the house. The only sounds we heard most of the time were the trees and the waves....it was perfect. The property is located at the north end of the island, so it is at least 2 hrs drive around to Polihale State Park or Waimea Canyon. We explored the entire island pretty thoroughly during our stay. We particularly enjoyed the drive up to and beyond Waimea Canyon State Park, Kipu Ranch (ATV adventure), snorkeling at Poipu Beach Park, exploring Anini Beach and Polihale State Park, Grove Farm Museum in Lihue, Kilauea Lighthouse, Limahuli Gardens, Spouting Horn, etc. We had a helicopter tour scheduled for our last day but it was unfortunately cancelled due to wind, so that is on the top of our list for our next trip to Kauai. We would stay at this house again in a heartbeat!"

  • For nature lovers

    "We loved our stay at the beautiful Moon studio. The studio has everything you wish! The Kitchen is fully equipped and makes everything easy to get prepared for the next day. Rooms were beautiful! The view from the living room takes your breath away! Who wants to go out to a restaurant if you have a living room with such an amazing lookout! The natural concert of frogs in the nearby pond makes it a jewel for people who love every kind of nature! We loved the combination of natural wood/bamboo to be combined into the structure of the house! Ray and his family are very nice and helpfull for every need or information we asked during our stay! Who chooses The Moon Studio will be lucky to enjoy their holiday!"

  • Lovely house

    "We had a great time here in Ha'ena. The house was incredibly charming and delivered immaculately clean. We loved how simple the interior was and hope they never update the beautifull 70s tile in the bathroom. Perfect cottage. Excellent beach access. Very private."

  • Our favorite place ever...

    "We finally decided to vacation in Haena over Poipu a few years ago, and never looked back. We love Haena, and we love Kaulana Naue. For us, it's perfect. The area is pristine, low key, unassuming and spectacular. There's a raw beauty and a relaxed attitude here that keeps bringing us back. And the home is perfect, from the location to the size, layout, decor and furnishings. Leila keeps the place in great shape and well outfitted, which is a good thing because once you set foot in Haena and in this home, there's no reason to go anywhere. The layout provides plenty of privacy when needed, but you will find yourself together - either at the beach, on the deck, or in the open kitchen/living area. It's awesome, and it feels like home from the minute you get there. We're addicted to this place, and literally count the days until we get back. Highly recommended for families looking to check out and decompress!"
