Recent Hanalei reviews
"My husband and I just spent 3 nights in early November after an epic hike on the Kalalau Trail. The place is clean and and very quaint. We loved our stay! The cottage is very quiet except for the giant avocados that occasionally dropped on the roof! We spent our time walking to the beach, walking to town, or relaxing outside. If you want a small place in Hanalei, away from the Princeville scene, then this is the place."

The property manager was adequately helpful.
The vacation rental was clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This was a second year renting Lani Kai. It is a great house in a fabulous location. We had a great time. The small office was not very clean (a ton of dust build up). The appliances were not great, dishwasher didn't clean dishes well, the temperature in the fridge didn't hold well, the washing machine has a terrible odor. For the price, I would expect the appliances to all work well."

"We spent a wonderful week in the Cowgirl Suite where not a detail was missed. Everything you could ever think of needing was there. From a fully stocked kitchen, bathroom and beach gear to great music and a white noise machine. The location is perfect and walkable to both the beach and town. Simon was the most gracious and informative host. All of his recommendations were spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats with him and this lovely location. We will return. PS. The garden was beautiful. Mahalo, Simon. Paul & Mary"

"We book this wonderful house for a week to celebrate our 40th anniversary with our 3 grown sons and their wives. The house is spacious and we never felt that we didn't have room to spread out. The kitchen on the top floor is the "working" kitchen, we used the downstairs kitchen to store extra food and drinks in the frig and to store our Costco purchases and just brought everything up when needed.
The highlight for the 3 "30 something couples" was having our own bathrooms for each bedroom. It gave an amount of privacy that made the week even better.
This house is really close to the beach and to the town. Yes, you can walk everywhere and that Hanalei Bay is so large we never felt like we were fighting crowds.
There is a wonderful farmers market on Tuesdays just up the road past Hanalei, it is a great place to get fresh local produce and don't forget to stop at the "pie Lady" and purchase a slice or a whole pie. We had it for dessert one night and loved the passion fruit cheesecake.
Our island host, Justin, was great. He answered all our questions and arranged outings for us and even a private surf lesson for 3 of our kids.
We would rent this home again if we are in the north side of kauai. We felt safe and tucked away a bit from the town. Ke'e and Tunnels Beach are literally 17 minutes away enabling us to get there earlier than the Poipu crowd and find a parking spot without having to drive an hour.
We loved eating at Postcards Cafe (reservations needed) it was a delightful way to end our celebration week."
