  • Perfect tropical location!

    "My wife and I stayed 10 days at the Hale Makai Cottages and loved it! We don't like the touristy resorts with all the kids and always look for accommodations away from the crowds. This property was perfect! We stayed 5 nights in cottage #1 and 5 nights in cottage #3. Both were clean with updated furnishings and even a large soaking tub in the bathroom. The grounds are a tropical paradise and just steps from a beautiful beach with great snorkeling. There are 5 cottages on the property, but it never felt crowded. For a rare property like this in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, we thought the pricing was reasonable. We look forward to returning!"

  • Good find

    "We were a party of 2 families for 12 days (4 adults and 3 kids). This is such a great location. We have been to Kauai twice before and love the quiet and beautifully lush North Shore. This rental is truly a very short, easy walk to some gorgeous and unpopulated beaches. If you plan on spending lots of time at the beach and can't afford to stay right on the beach, this house is worth checking out. The yard is very private and is like having your own botanical garden, which is great for kids and adults. This yard is certainly a bonus and is bigger than is shown in the photos. We also very much enjoyed the outdoor shower, especially after a day at the beach (some towel hooks would have been appreciated). The upstairs is an open floor plan and has good deck space that overlooks the private yard with mature island flowers (beautiful!) and plants and palm trees. The upstairs gets plenty of natural light and has a pretty good kitchen. We also appreciated the separate room for the washer and dryer downstairs. This house had plenty of space for all of us. There were a couple minor issues that the owner was very responsive to, and we felt taken care of. Thank you Joanna! We would like to stay here again."

  • Family Vacation was wonderful!

    "This is our fifth visit at Hale Ono as we are family friends of the Hale Ono family. The trip was a lot of fun, adventure, surfing, barbequeing, hiking, snorkeling, and relaxing on the beach. Hale Ono is a private spot on the beach with tropical breezes and the sound of the ocean that is soothing to the soul. It is great for a family get together because there are so many activities that everone can enjoy from lounging to swimming in the refreshing pool. The home has everything you need and it is kept in very clean condition with all of the beach towels, sheets, etc. available upon arrival. The flowers and gardens are well kept with bananas on the banana tree. This last trip was special because I spent time with my family and it seemed that it was timeless. I did not want to go home and wanted to stay longer with my boyfriend because we were having such a relaxing time filled with laughter and stressfree activities. We can't wait to come back next time and hopefully we can stay longer. The memories here on the North Shore at Hale Ono are never to be forgotten. It is paradise on earth. Thank you and Mahalo. ."

  • A week of heaven

    "We spent a week here and enjoyed both the space of the house and the location right by some great north shore beaches. The house is well maintained and equipped, especially in the kitchen. The large decks together with the yard and under-house area give everyone a spot to retreat to and also burn off energy together. The outside shower is heaven after a long sandy beach day. You're clean before you step back into the house. The owner is very responsive and easy to deal with. We had a problem with the washing machine. He replaced it with a brand new one right away and refunded half a night for our trouble. My only complaints are with the beds and having a second house on the property. The beds are very soft and _very_ squeaky. The second house takes away from the privacy. We were lucky to have a quite couple during our stay. It does break the magic when you're playing around in the yard an another car drives in or people walk through. The location is a 5 min walk for a nice and very quite sandy beach with good close to shore splashing around or get some quite time on the sand. It is 15mins (we timed it walking with all our beach gear and a 5 year old) from Tunnels beach with is one of the world's most amazing beaches and our reason for staying here. We found the snorkeling, scuba diving, and kids kicking splashing around to be perfect. The location is remote which is what we wanted. The price is a 15 min drive to good coffee in Haena (which was amazing) and 45mins to Safeway. You have to plan ahead with your supplies then enjoy the quite."

Haena Travel Tips

Find Paradise With Haena Vacation Rentals

Haena vacation rentals are the accommodations to consider when you want a beautiful setting off the beaten path. Located on the northern part of the garden island of Kauai, Haena places you minutes from famous beaches. Lumahai Beach was the setting for South Pacific. Nearby Moloaa Bay and its beach provided the location for the pilot for Gilligan's Island. Other beaches in the area offering waterfront rental properties are Tunnels, Cannons, and Ke'e. From cottages to bungalows and from Mediterranean-style houses to condos, you can find a vacation rental with the space you need to enjoy your trip.

Relax at Haena Beach Rentals

When you stay at Haena beach rentals, you can enjoy sparkling blue water and mountains covered in tropical forests. Properties with lanais let you enjoy a quiet moment as the sun rises or sets. Some rentals include balconies with Jacuzzis or hot tubs. While many properties feature off-road privacy, you'll find modern amenities like TVs and WiFi. Hanalei Town, offering restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, is minutes away. Vacation rentals in Haena give you more space than you'd get at a hotel. Some properties have private access to the beach, which means you won't have to maneuver through a crowd to find a good place to enjoy the sand.

Kauai Travel Connects You to Nature

Kauai travel provides many opportunities to explore nature. Land lovers can enjoy the tropical setting by hiking, biking, or horseback riding. Trails like Kalalau Trail follow routes with ocean views. Waterfalls and serene pools provide beautiful places to pause for a moment of relaxation and rest. Kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, and diving bring you up close to Kauai's aquatic life, which can include dolphins and whales. Helicopter tours let you see the botanical settings from an aerial view.
