Perfect vacation house
"Perfect home for our family of five. Extremely short walk to the beach which is practically empty. The house has beach chairs and even a cooler to pack up for a day and head to tunnels or Ke'e- amazing snorkeling spots and only a short drive. Quick walk to restaurants/ breakfast joint/ bar with music. Snorkel rentals were right in town (one min drive) as well as boat tours of the Nepali coast. At night we would play shuffle board downstairs or a puzzle inside and BBQ or cook for dinner. House was so convenient and perfect for our vacation."

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
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 :)"

"We stayed in cottage #1 for a week and enjoyed every second! The sound of the ocean and palm trees is all you'll hear. It's so incredibly beautiful and relaxing. You're steps from the beach (which we had to ourselves most of the time) and just a couple miles from both Tunnels and Ke'e beach. The cottage itself was well appointed with everything we needed (even an ice maker and a water filter pitcher!) and the finishes are all high end. We were here with our 2 year old daughter and there was plenty of grassy space for her to run around. We enjoyed dinner on the lanai most nights - watching the ocean. Each cottage has it's own BBQ.
Other things that are worth mentioning:
-This cottage had a ton - A TON - of towels. Beach towels, bath towels, hand towels... There were an abundance and we never ran out like we usually do after a few days at a hotel
-There is no need to rent a snorkel or buy beach chairs because there's a stash behind one of the cottages for all to use. I used the same snorkel and fins all week, there was a ball for my 2 year old to play with, and we left behind a bucket and sand toys for the next lucky kiddo.
-If staying over a weekend, I recommend heading to Hanalei on Saturday morning for the farmer's market.
-Sushigirl, which is a tiny door next to the 'last chance to stop market' Wainiha General Store, is fab.
-Susan, the agent for Hale Makai, was incredibly helpful. I'm super type A and was nervous about traveling for the first time with my little one. I probably asked her 200 questions and was very (VERY!) patient with me.
Enjoy your stay!!"

"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!)."
