Recent Hanalei reviews
"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!"

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Firstly, the service was great. We were able to get a crib, two bikes, sand toys, etc. all waiting for us when we arrived. The place is just the right size, beautifully put together and the location is amazing, on the beach and a short bike ride to Hanalei village. Can't wait to stay there again."

"This is a two-story small house on the property of the main house. It is THE closest house to the famous Hanalei Beach pier. This was perfect for a novice surfer because the best beginner and intermediate waves (October) are immediately to the right of the pier and further out beyond the break.(The other quality waves are far far left on the other side of the bay). I carried my board from the house, through the yard to the beach and right there is the pier. BOOM!
Accomodations are nice, clean,stylish, and updated. Their is an a/c unit upstairs in the master which was essential.
Internet is hardwired. That's great for laptops there was no WiFi which isn't ideal for smart phone use. But our carrier reception was fine.
Noise: ALL of the houses on the single street that run parallel to the beach near the pier have mild road traffic noise from surfers driving to the public beach 2 lots over. However, not once did it disturb us while we were sleeping or trying to sleep. Why? Because most people don't surf at night or early in the morning. During the day? Who cares. We were never home! We were in the water, hiking, boating...anything but staying home inside. Once or twice we took a daytime nap and the wind in the palm fronds or a/c unit pleasantly drowns out most of the road noise.
Some nice features are an outdoor hot water shower and spigot near the front door to wash sand off your feet. Sounds simple but not all homes have this and it's realllllllllly nice. Ie, we'd come off the ocean and beach, quickly rinse down, and then hop in our Jeep to grab some lunch or groceries.
Town's infrastructure is about a 2 minute drive away. Nice.
The owners are very nice and responsive to our needs. The blender (making smoothies) was broken and they replaced it the same day we notified them. Our deposit was promptly refunded. Quality folks."

"We had a great time at the Tiki house. It really was like being In a tree house when you are upstairs, level with some of the tree tops. The master bedroom is huge, a nice space to hang out with the kids when they get up super early and everyone else is still sleeping. The back yard is completely private and well maintained. There were bikes to use, but unfortunately with young kids we didn't get much use out of them. There were many sand toys, boogie boards and beach chairs to use. The kitchen was so big that we could have 3 people working on making dinner and not feel crowded at all. The location was great, even our young kids had no problem making the walk to the beach or the the shops. The local market was great. We have already recommended this house to a friend!"
