  • Emaculate home that has it all!

    "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."

  • Great location and wonderful host

    "We read all other reviews and agree that they capture what we too experienced. We would only add that Smoky was a perfect host! He left us with as much space and privacy as we wanted yet was always available to help or advise- and we got great advice. This is in a great location and is well-supplied (eg kitchen). We were attracted to Hanalei by its beauty and somewhat more remote location and we found lots of places for adventure and exploration. We are hikers and swimmers and the setting is perfect for both."

  • Can't beat the location, charm and hospitality

    "Our family of 4 had a lovely stay in the beachfront cottage for 9 nights. Although the cottage is small, it did not feel confining. It was well equipped and had everything we needed to make dinner, relax on the beach and play in the ocean. It was a pleasant 10 minute walk to downtown Hanalei. We had a nice view of the ocean and the walk to beautiful Hanalei Bay was nearly a hop, skip and jump. Both the property manager, Brian, and property caretaker, Jimmy, were delightful to deal with. We will be returning soon."

  • Great place!

    "We stayed 9 nights at the surfboard house and had a great time. We had the cowgirl room. It's a perfect place for a vacation on Kauai. Hanalei Bay is a great place and the house is perfectly place. It's quiet, clean, roomy, well equipped and the gardens are beautiful. Simon, the owner is very friendly and interesting. We recommend this place with no hesitation!"
