This house was a dream! Right across the street from the beach, air conditioning, and a quick walk into town. Doesn't get any better than this!! Can't wait to return :)"

"My husband and I just stayed at the Blue Anini Cottage for our honeymoon. I was very impressed. The most striking thing was how clean it was. Also spacious, nice bathroom/shower, and the bed was very comfortable. The lanai was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a meal or drink. We were awakened by roosters most mornings, but they're everywhere so just prepare yourself and know that most of the time they take breaks! The location was perfect--close to both Princeville and Hanalei. The grill, beach accessories, coffee, and macadamia nuts that were provided were a nice treat. We would definitely stay here again. As far as things in the area that we enjoyed, we found the grocery store in Princeville good for most of the things we wanted. We ate at Bouchon's in Hanalei twice--casual atmosphere with beautiful mountain views and great sushi for much less than we paid elsewhere. We also found the Mai Tai's at Tahiti Nui in Hanalei to be the best (as advertised!)."

"This was our 3rd time to Kauai with each stay on the North Shore. We had a larger group this time and this home fit us all perfectly. The home is fully updated, modern, and well taken care of. Everything was pristine and free of dust and dirt that you normally find in a lot of homes on the islands. The furniture was clean, not stained and comfortable to relax in. The kitchen was stocked with all the basics that you would need including a decent selection of spices and an extra fridge in the garage when you are overflowing from your Costco run. The garage also had buckets and sand toys for younger kids, sets of snorkeling gear, his & hers bikes, and half a dozen boogie boards.
You can see a nice view of the mountains and the waterfalls cascading down them from the house or take a 5 minute walk down the street and watch the whales from the top of the cliff overlooking Queens bath (or hike down to Queens bath and enjoy a dip in the tidal pools.)
The entire Princeville area is amazing. The beauty of this area and how relaxed it makes you feel is why we keep coming to Kauai. Less than a mile away (and easy walk) you have the St. Regis resort for spa treatments or to just enjoy a Mai Thai during sunsets on their Lanai overlooking the Hanalei bay. Or take a leisurely stroll on the walking path around the golf course to the Princeville shopping center where you can get your groceries at the Foodland (think Safeway or Albertsons.) In the same area is a public Library, mail center, a couple places to eat, some small shops, an Ace Hardware, and CJ's (a fancy sit-down to dinner restaurant.) Everything you need/want is a short walk, bike, or car ride away.
I cannot not say enough about this property or the owner. I almost didn't want to write a review or say anything about this place for fear it will just bring more people and not leave any availability for me when I return! But John and his cleaning staff deserve it. They were wonderful! Easy to work with, quick responses, and bending over backwards to accommodate us, making sure our vacation was perfect. This is the only place we will come back to from now on."

"This is the perfect place to stay for if you're looking for the local vibe of Hanalei. Surrounded by regular homes (not the fancy rentals on the beach), you feel like you really live in Hanalei. People going to work, mowing their lawns, walking their dogs. At times you hear the local sounds of roosters crowing, dogs barking, waves crashing, surfers walking past. Other times it is nearly silent. Super clean suite with a well appointed kitchen. Having beach towels, surfboards, boogie board and beach chairs at your fingertips is wonderful. The temperature was perfect since it has excellent cross ventilation. Very easy communication with Jana & Brydan who were awesome hosts! (There when you need them but gave you lots of privacy.) I highly highly highly recommend Hanalei Beach Suite!"
