"My father, brother, sister-in-law, and I stayed in this lovely house and property for two weeks. It is perfectly located for the North Shore, our favorite part of the island, as it is close to some of the best beaches and to Hanalei. Don't miss Hanalei Bay and the killer farmer's market and wonderful weekend beakfast at Kalypso! The property is tranquil and quite lovely. There are many fruit bearing trees and we enjoyed lime, lemon, papaya, and apple banana during our stay. The house itself is amazing and is a lovely retreat after sightseeing, hiking, or spending the day on the beach. Definitely spend some time on the lower, covered lanai, especially in that comfy hammock! And enjoy a large and amply furnished kitchen for when you cook in, which we did most evenings. The owners were very helpful and communicative before booking, in the lead up to the trip, during the stay, and afterward--you may feel completely at ease renting from and working with these owners! One word of caution: when it says quiet hours from 10pm-8am, the level of quiet expected from the nearest neighbor is that of a library zone. The houses are quite close and not everyone is on vacation, so this is somewhat understandable, but we received a call and a visit for talking in the kitchen after arriving the first night around 11pm and then again for using the coffee grinder prior to 8am--this is the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars. (The owners were most understanding when I made them aware of this, for which I am grateful.) For this reason, I wouldn't suggest the residence for people with young children. We met several of the neighbors, however, and they were all kind and most were very generous, welcoming, and helpful. We definitely received a hearty Aloha from everyone, other than the initial quiet time visits and these were respectful. Enjoy your stay on the river!"
