  • Heaven on Earth

    "We just can't say enough about this lovely home that we had the pleasure of experiencing in July of this year. My husband, 3 teenage children and I spent 4 nights in this paradise and wish we could have stayed forever. This was our first trip to Kauai and when we walked into this home, we couldn't believe our eyes. It was a tropical paradise. The home itself was clean and impeccably decorated. It was bright and beautiful. The tropical plants, fruit, flowers and mountain view were amazing. I couldn't stop taking it all in and of course taking pictures. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises and lots and lots of stars. It was quiet and peaceful with the sound of the stream lulling us to sleep. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the bathtub in the master bathroom was perfect at the end of a busy day. Ellen and Jim thought of everything, from the fresh flowers all over the house, to the fresh pineapples, lilikoi, lychee and papaya that we were treated to, to the fresh eggs every morning, to the rich hand soaps and body lotions, to the wonderful bottle of wine and honey that was awaiting us when we arrived. They couldn't have thought of anything more. The kitchen is gorgeous with up to date appliances and the washer and dryer came in very handy. My two favorite areas were the screened in sun room that had an incredible breeze and the back patio with the beautiful mountain view. We couldn't get enough of the views and the sounds of nature. Even my teenage children were impressed. The fans and the screened in windows all over the house brought in the warm breezes and made sleeping very comfortable without the need for air conditioning. The location of the house is perfect. On the north coast of Kauai close to Hanalei town and Bay and the magnificent Napali Coast. Ellen was very helpful and pleasant yet we had complete privacy. She gave us tips on areas to visit that are more secluded and we found her input extremely helpful. Thank you Ellen for making our stay one that we will always remember. We will definitely visit again. We're already missing the feel of paradise that is your home. Aloha."

  • Great stay...

    "We travel to Hawaii frequently (3rd trip this year!) and have been at numerous hotels and homes in Kauai - north and south. This was a last minute trip we squeezed in before our girls started school and how fortunate we were to find this house. We typically have no agenda other than to eat good food, relax, spend time w/eachother and surf - and this house was perfect - away from it all yet close enough to hop into Kilauea for a pizza or some poke at the fish market. The girls loved the pool (hard to find a private pool in Kauai) - our younger daughter even had a sleepover in the guest/pool house w a friend who also happened to be on the island on holiday. Everything you need is in the house so all you need to do is show up. Linda was extremely accommodating and super easy to work with - especially when the recent hurricanes threatened to change our schedule some. We will come back!"

  • The Texas Gals

    "We are a group that travels together several times a year and we usually rent a home. This home was spacious and homey, and yet provided enough space for all of us to easily get ready for the day. The amenities are very nice. As others have said you are in a local neighborhood, but the plus side of that is that you can escape the hustle and bustle. This area provides you a calm escape from everyday life. The neighbors are friendly and a pleasure to be around. One even provided paddle board lessons at a very reasonable rate. A caution for those less than athletic, it is a little tricky to get up and down the levels of terrain getting to the river and at this time the year the current can be a little strong in the river. The water is also quite cold when you fall off the paddle board the first time. We just enjoy our time together laughing and catching up, even if we get a little loud. Thank you for adding this home to have in our memories together!!"

The host is as perfect as they come - providing you with just the right balance of recommendations while respecting your vacation and not interfering with it. Don't even think twice about renting this gem of a place if you're looking for the perfect experience in a truly remarkable place... You'll be extremely comfortable while having a truly unique experience all around - could not recommend it more!"

Kalihiwai Travel Tips

Feel the Breeze with Kalihiwai Condos

Looking out over that vast blue expanse, positioned on the corner of Kalihiwai Bay, you may think to yourself, "Why didn't I come here sooner?" That strong ocean breeze runs over your neck. Your family, back at the Kalihiwai condo you have rented, is cooking dinner. You spent the entire day on the beach; running, swimming, diving, and snorkeling. Tomorrow, you and your family plan to take a day trip to the Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge and walk under waterfalls and smell the tropical aromas. Life is good. Just one question lies ahead: Why didn't you take this vacation sooner?

Fun for the Whole Family

Always wanted to take a Hawaiian vacation but the check-out times and continental breakfasts have you thinking twice? With Kalihiwai vacation homes, you can skip the dingy towels, the keycard entry, and the filthy sheets of a hotel room. From a Kalihiwai vacation home, step out your back door and become one with the sound of the ocean. Feel like spending a day at the beaches? Head there. Want to hit the town, read a book, or just generally veg out? With Kalihiwai condos and vacation homes, you're your own boss. Make your own rules, set you own timetable. And whether it is a romantic vacation for two or a fun-packed family vacation, Kalihiwai vacation homes have you covered.

We'll Be Seeing You Again

After tomorrow, you leave again. How can that be? It feels like you just arrived. Everything has been so easy; so carefree. That first day at the beach. The day you went snorkeling. It feels like you've lived a lifetime in these past weeks.

Don't worry. You'll be back. With Kauai vacation rentals you'll be playing golf, swimming, and enjoying the Pacific sunset in no time.
