Very Nice Property
"I agree with everything other reviewers said, so I hate to add anything negative, but...
The sky lights create a hot-house effect and the ocean breezes don't blow thru the house. The house didn't cool off until about 9pm. Granted, the weather was unusually hot due to El Niño. Two hurricanes (Hilo and Ignacio) passed a few hundred miles from Hawaii while we were here. Looks like 2 more on the way after we left. A whole-house fan would do wonders to pull in the cool outside air.
With all that being said I would stay here again, but I would check the weather patterns when making plans."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This was a lovely home with a wonderful lanai that we throughly enjoyed. We had hot weather for Kauai when we were there and the house does get quite hot and stuffy during the day and early evening. Although sitting on the lanai did help. The location was great as we could walk to Tunnels which we loved."

"Let me start by saying that we had one of a kind experience at the Jungle Riverhouse. If you are looking for a unique and super comfortable stay then look no further, you have found it. The place is as described on the post and photos, if not less credited for what they really were. My husband and I stayed for one week with our 8 months old baby and two grandmas. We enjoyed every single moment of our experience.
Upon arrival, we were blown away by how spacious and beautiful the property is. Rooms are tastefully decorated and very clean. There is plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone to have their space and feel comfortable. The garden is absolutely gorgeous with streams running through and amazing plants and flowers abound. There is also a vegetable and herb garden and of course all kinds of fruit trees! We enjoyed taking walks around the property admiring the landscaping and picking lychees which was a kind of tropical fruit in season during the time we were there. It was another treat to be able to fall asleep to the relaxing sound of the stream and wake up to chirping birds.
The property also has all the amenities you can ask for. The kitchen is well stocked with essentials. We were able to make many gourmet meals. We especially appreciated the items they have available for our little one: a nice comfortable crib, pack and play, high chair, tons of beach toys, etc.
The property is about 10 min drive to Hanalei and very close to the cave and Na Pali coast line trail. We all managed to do the Hanakapiai Beach hike which was one of the many highlights of our trip. The views of the Na'pali coast were simply breathtaking.
Rocky and Amanda are very nice and helpful. They were prompt in answering our questions and accommodating since we had a change in our flight schedule. They and their property manager checked in with us a couple of times during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed which we appreciated. We highly recommend this place and look forward to our return to Kauai and staying there again."

"I visited Kauai for the first time about 3.5 years ago and left a piece of my heart in Haena. When planning my return trip, I knew that a stay on that beautiful stretch of beach was a must. This was the perfect house! It has everything I want when traveling: every home convenience, stunning views and quiet seclusion.
The property and house are beautiful and just a walk through the trees to a great snorkeling beach. I loved the plumerias in bloom under the dining room windows. The wonderful scent was carried on the breezes. The house was clean and well appointed and we didn't find ourselves wanting for anything for daily living. All the rooms were large and comfortable. The garage is filled with tons of beach toys, snorkel gear of varying sizes and beach chairs. It was oversized with room for a large vehicle and had a ping pong table.
While all of that was wonderful, nothing could best the spectacular views of Makana from the lanai and bedrooms. Waking up to the view of the mountain in the glow of dawn with the sound of the waves lapping at the shore is sheer peace and joy. I had the fortune to travel during a new moon and the night sky took my breathe away! The yard is expansive with few large trees, allowing for a fantastic black canvas punched by tens of thousands of stars, at least one shooting star each clear evening, and the Milky Way. A short, early morning stroll up the beach to Haena Point was rewarded with golden sunrises over the bluff at Princeville.
Willi, the owner, was great to work with and very accommodating. She was always pleasant, responsive and answered any questions I had. Many thanks to her for sharing her home!
I love the island and will definitely return! When I do, I will be booking this property again."
