  • Ideal place in wonderful location

    "This studio had everything we needed in a tidy, spacious, private location. We were in Kauai for a wedding, most of our friends rented larger 4 bedrooms homes. We feel so lucky to have had this lovely place to ourselves. Kitchenette ideal for breakfast and simple meals for two people. Everything was sparkling clean and very well kept. Nice small touches such as a cooler and beach chairs for the beach right across the street. Could not ask for anything more. We would highly recommend this property."

  • What A Holiday!

    "We stayed in this house for close to 3 weeks and it was magnificent! We were 4 adults and a 7 year old. The house was a perfect size for us, with enough space indoors and/or outdoors to retreat for some quiet time. The property itself is quite breathtaking! With a spectacular view of the mountains from the back yard and other beautiful jungle foliage. At night, it was a real treat to sit outside with the geckos and stargaze of the large lanai! Everyone enjoyed the outdoor shower and tub too! Especially my daughter. The house felt very spacious with it's high ceilings and with the ceiling fans on and the doors open, it never got too hot. Judy has provided extra fans and even two portable air conditioners to cool you off, but we never needed to use any of them. Our beds were quite comfy and bedrooms bright with lots of windows. So many things were provided with the house. We had everything we needed for a day at the beach, in the room at the bottom of the stairs! Boogie boards, chairs, water shoes, towels, and even buckets and toys! The closet in the front room was also loaded with great stuff if you are coming with kids. lots of toys and books, even a playpen (which we didn't need)! There is also a small library of books for the adults too, in the master bedroom and some DVDs in the livingroom! We were also pleasantly surprised by the amount of condiments and coffee in the house. Also, all of the dishes that were provided were perfect! The beach is not so far from the house. A short 7 minute walk over to Tunnels where we could sit and play all day. We even saw several endangered Hawaiian Monk Seals right on the beach, and of course humpbacks jumping out of the ocean in the distance! Beaux, the caretaker, was such a lovely lady! Always ready to help when we needed it (Ie: empty propane tank) and even after a windstorm and power outage one night, she called in the morning to check if we were okay and if there was anything we needed. Overall, it was a fantastic experience! We were all quite thrilled with the house and its beautiful location. We all collectively decided that when we come back to Kauai, we will stay at this house again! Even the neighbours are great! Thanks Judy and Beaux for such a fantastic holiday!! Hope to see you guys again!"

  • Wonderful Location

    "This was our first trip to Hawaii and being an event planner I did a lot of research on accommodations beforehand. So, Haena Cottage lived up to all our expectations. First of all, the house is exactly as it is described on VRBO. The same goes for the gardens and the interior. Beverly, the owner and Patricia, the property manager on location are great to work with and the whole process of renting, down payment, instructions, deposit refund were handled professionally. The house is located in the most beautiful part of Kauai, about 4 miles north of Hanalei on a narrow road with several one-lane bridges. It is set among three larger houses and is surrounded by rain forest. You wake up in the morning with the sound of birds and yes, the early morning rooster crowing. Make sure to take ear plugs if you’re a light sleeper. It is a short walk across the road to a beautiful beach. If you’re in good shape, you can walk all the way past Tunnels Beach to Haena State Park Beach and beyond. These beaches are some of the most beautiful I’ve seen, but they’re not for swimming (at least not in October). Plus we had the beaches almost all to ourselves! The kitchen is equipped with everything you need inside and for the beach. The lanai has a gas grill; you can pick up fish in Hanalei and grill in the evening while you sit outside and listen to the surf. There is no air conditioning in the cottage. I liked the couch in the office; it was a quiet place to read in the morning and had the strongest signal from the WiFi. I really liked having the washing machines! The cottage is a little piece of paradise and we can highly recommend it. It’s perfect if you seek quiet, tranquility, being close to nature and walks on the beach and don’t mind a few critters and mosquitos. We prefer this to fancy restaurants and nightlife and will definitely be back."

  • 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!"
