Recent Hanalei reviews

  • Great place to stay on the north shore of Kauai

    "We had a great stay in Hanalei. This place is a block from the beach, an easy walk to the restaurants and shops in town, and an easy drive to all of the attractions on the north shore. It was big, clean, and we loved having the washer and dryer to clean our clothes after hiking part of the Kalalau trail. We also liked having the beach umbrella, chair, and mat. Basically it comes with anything you'd need for the beach. Wi-fi worked great, and having a full sized refrigerator and freezer was also useful. The only downside was the heat - it was a particularly hot week in Kauai and the trade winds weren't blowing, so it got quite warm in the house. But we were out doing stuff during the day anyway, and the house cooled off after sundown. Jana and her family were very nice and welcoming, although we didn't see them very much because we kept so busy and weren't at the house except to sleep."

  • the House of Joy is as advertised

    "We are just wrapping up a _one week stay here and are thoroughly satisfied with this little cottage. The combo dining room/lanai is where we've spent most of our time, as it brings the outside inside. The spacious back yard affords a good view of the mountains (when it's not raining), and allows use of a clothes line to dry clothes. The outdoor shower is a real plus. The beach is a short walk away, and it is easy biking into town. The kitchen amenities are certainly adequate; plenty of pots and pans. The Webber grill is handy to have. A previous guest said they left behind some beach chairs,but we couldn't find them. Internet connection a real convenience. A quiet neighborhood, except for the roosters."

  • Amazing Place

    "WOW! That's pretty much all I can say. I have read all the previous internet reviews and there was not a bad word to be said. Well it's true, there is nothing that I can criticize. Love it!! My kids (14 & 12) have said this is the best place you have ever booked. Do not hesitate in booking your vacation here. So quiet and peaceful, everything and more. Lucas and his booking system was very easy and no stress. I hope that future Dolphin Cottage guests can experience the same as we have, all the way from Australia."

  • Home away from home

    "We're from Hawaii, but when we want to get away from the big city, we escape to Kauai. When we travel, we always want a place to stay that feels like home, and not hectic and crowded the way hotels can. It's important for us to be able to relax, make home cooked meals, and have the comfort and tranquility of home. Hale Honu was amazing. The place had everything we needed, is well-appointed and clean, is nice and private away from the main road, and above all, is quiet, relaxing and comfortable. The decor was top-notch. I also love that it has 2 good sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms--perfect for a small family or those traveling with in-laws (us). The condo complex is also small and set back away from the main road, so it was serene and tranquil and exactly what we needed. It's minutes away from Princeville and Foodland, and a quick 5 minute drive to Hanalei. North Shore beaches are just minutes away in either direction on the highway, the Hanalei lookout point is a quick walk down the road (or 3 second drive). It's close to dining, hiking, shopping and snorkeling. Perfect location for north shore and east side adventures. We're already planning our next trip to Kauai to escape Honolulu, and we want to make this our regular place to stay. It's the perfect home away from home. We couldn't ask for any better."
