Recent Haena reviews

  • Hard to leave

    "We loved our time here! The house was perfect for two families with three young kids. Having two bedrooms with twin beds downstairs was great for the little ones, and allowed for some nice separation for the adults upstairs. The lush garden really provided amazing privacy and the kids enjoyed playing out there for hours. We loved the outdoor shower, and I noticed that the owner added towel hooks in response to the previous review. We cooked all of our meals, and the kitchen was great--the only improvement would be some sharper knives. We made good use of the beach supplies, which included boogie boards, snorkels/fins, sun umbrella, mats, and plenty of sand toys for the kids. The location is idyllic with outstanding beaches super close by (we hit a different beach every day without needing to drive more than 5 miles). My wife and I enjoyed taking turns running the Nepali coast trail, which is about a three minute drive from the house. It was also nice to be able to walk a couple hundred yards down the road (or beach) to the coffee shop at the Hanalei Colony Resort. We would definitely stay here again!"

  • 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!"

  • Close to Ke'e Beach

    "My sister and I and our spouses stayed in this house for a week. We are senior citizens so I can attest to the comfort of this house. You will have to carry your suitcases to the 2nd floor if you are staying up there, but there are 2 BRs on the bottom floor as well. Being from Mississippi, we were worried about no A/C, but we opened the windows and turned on the fans and we were fine. We liked having our own bathroom and I must say that all of the bathrooms were really first class. Kitchen was top notch. Only thing missing was an electric hand mixer but we made do with what they had. This house is close to Ke'e beach -- 2 miles down the road. It is the best beach for snorkeling -- but get there early. We left the house at 8:15 and were there just in the nick of time to get a parking place in the lot, but still a walk to the beach. The house is a 30 second walk to the Kapuhi beach. We would set out our chairs at night on the sand and watch the sunsets. It was beautiful."

  • 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."
