Beach front on Hanalei Bay
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This is a cute house in good shape. Clean and charming. The photos make it look way bigger than it is. It was the perfect size for my teenage daughter, my husband and myself. Maybe two couples, or a family with two or three younger kids. It's an intimate space, so you'll want to be close to those you are sharing it with. The location is great - walk to town, walk out to a gorgeous beach, just a hundreds yards or so away. Great view from house. There are beach chairs, beach towels, toys, flippers, and boogie boards to use, which is a huge help. Lots of towels and a washer and dryer. Two TVs. The wrap around Lanai is lovely. There's an outdoor shower, too. All the comforts of home. I will warn you about the parking lot directly in front of the house. It is a popular surfing spot on the bay called "Pine Trees". If you surf...heaven. And it's fun to watch all the surfers. But cars come and go all day starting about sun up. They are mostly local surfers, some drifters who are harmless, but always there. At night cars go in and out to party. We called the cops one night on a car after two hours of super loud music - started around 9pm. We tolerated it til around 11pm. It only happened once in a a week. It's not horrible or dangerous and you get used to it, but just be aware."

"My wife and I, along with my brother and sister-in-law, enjoyed staying at this beautifully-appointed home (one block from the beach) so much so that we would love to stay there again on our next vacation to Hanalei. The house is immaculate, with so many fine touches, including an open-air dining room, a magnificent contemporary kitchen, two lovely bedrooms (with full baths), a large dining room, a gas barbecue grill, and high-class woodwork throughout. Our typical MO on Hawaiian vacations is to dine out most evenings, but with the combination of the kitchen and open-air dining room here, we cooked four of the five evenings, with absolutely no regrets. It's also just a 5-10 minute walk into town. So what's not to like? On a scale of 1-100, I'd rate this property a 95. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the occasional moving cars outside on Weke Road that are easy to hear, for those sleeping in the bedroom facing the street, particularly if you like to leave your windows open, which we do. Great to hear the ocean surf, not so great to hear the car engines."

"My husband and I were very pleased with our stay here. We wanted to avoid the resort scene, feel the real Kauai and see the beautiful north shore. This fit the bill perfectly. It's simple, completely comfortable, clean and has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The cottage is really more like an apartment within the larger home occupied by the nice family who takes care of the unit. But it was quiet and peaceful and the sound of the river is soothing. It's located between Hanalei and where the road ends at the Napali Coast. I would absolutely return again. Hanalei is a charming town, large enough to offer a variety of shops and restaurants, but small enough to feel relaxing. I recommend the Napali Coast tour on the UFO (name of the boat)."

"My husband and I picked this cottage so that he could try fishing north shore Kauai beaches while I enjoyed the jungle scenery. The location was perfect for both activities, and we made good use of the provided beach chairs. Access to several beaches was just a short drive. Having a washer and dryer and a small kitchen was great, and we loved the privacy (even with another family in the adjoining larger cottage), and the private porch. We would have liked a nightlight or another way to illuminate the step down into the bedroom for moving about at night, but we appreciated the air conditioner for those of us from cooler climes. The friendly tomcat living under the cottage was also a plus for us and we enjoyed him. The setting was very lush and verdant and the bushes screened the cottage from the nearby road quite well. We would definitely recommend this little cottage (good for a couple) and would stay here again."
