  • Plenty of room, close to beach

    "We book this wonderful house for a week to celebrate our 40th anniversary with our 3 grown sons and their wives. The house is spacious and we never felt that we didn't have room to spread out. The kitchen on the top floor is the "working" kitchen, we used the downstairs kitchen to store extra food and drinks in the frig and to store our Costco purchases and just brought everything up when needed. The highlight for the 3 "30 something couples" was having our own bathrooms for each bedroom. It gave an amount of privacy that made the week even better. This house is really close to the beach and to the town. Yes, you can walk everywhere and that Hanalei Bay is so large we never felt like we were fighting crowds. There is a wonderful farmers market on Tuesdays just up the road past Hanalei, it is a great place to get fresh local produce and don't forget to stop at the "pie Lady" and purchase a slice or a whole pie. We had it for dessert one night and loved the passion fruit cheesecake. Our island host, Justin, was great. He answered all our questions and arranged outings for us and even a private surf lesson for 3 of our kids. We would rent this home again if we are in the north side of kauai. We felt safe and tucked away a bit from the town. Ke'e and Tunnels Beach are literally 17 minutes away enabling us to get there earlier than the Poipu crowd and find a parking spot without having to drive an hour. We loved eating at Postcards Cafe (reservations needed) it was a delightful way to end our celebration week."

  • kids straight A reward trip

    "This was our first trip to Kauai and we were extremely comfortable in this condo. The beds were excellent, plenty of bathrooms (family of five, three kids, 10, 9, 7), the tvs in every room were nice at night, the kitchen is well appointed, plenty of boogie boards, skim boards and drink coolers for beach excursions and hikes. Its a large condo and we never felt cramped at all. The kids loved the pools, jacuzzi and waterfalls. The views and breeze coming from the ocean were incredible. Sea turtles everywhere right below on the reefs and whales were spouting in the distance. Princeville has a great supermarket and the Cliffs staff gives you a discount card at check in. I bought ahi poke all week for $10/lb. I couldnt believe it!"

  • January was great!

    "We had a super vacation in January 16-24, 2015 at this spacious North Shore house! 8 of us stayed in the house and 2 more in the Guest House located just across the lawn in the tropical backyard. The big kitchen is well equipped so we were able to make our own Happy Hours & complete, tasty meals. (We planned ahead, then shopped at Costco, Walmart, Safeway & Foodland when we landed. Nothing is far from anything else, and these stores are right along the way to the house) The big gas BBQ allowed for easily & perfectly grilled local fish. The indoor and downstairs /outdoor tables are big enough for us all to sit down together. Cheers! The bedrooms are fresh, airy and the beds very comfy. There are plenty of beach and bath towels. The Washer & dryer were handy for a mid-week wash. WiFi, TV and cellphones all work just fine, even though the location is (delightfully) off the beaten track. The beach across from the house is a 1 minute stroll through a bamboo 'tunnel' and is gorgeous and peaceful. It features the same view as our Hawaiian Airlines MasterCard!! Swim with the locals, read, sun bathe, snorkel, have a campfire, play in the sand, watch world-class kite surfers and/or whales(in season!), enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets, take long strolls down to Tunnels Beach and beyond. The famous Kalalau Trail starts just 2 miles down the very pleasant neighborhood 'highway'. We recommend the 8 mile (total) jungle hike to Hanakapiai Falls! We felt very comfortable doing our 4 mile roundtrip exercise jogs along the 'highway', too! Hanalei's shops, grocery store, cafes, churches, surf lessons, big beach, swimming, history, Saturday Farmers Market are a very pretty 10 minute drive away. Princeville's just a few minutes further, if golfing is on your agenda. We got reasonable airfares on Hawaiian Airlines out of Oakland, CA. Alaska Air has good prices, too, from Oakland and San Jose. Check out for some of the best pricing. Extra drivers cost $10 daily in Hawaii (free of charge in Calif. for example) but this rental site can arrange for up to 2 extras without a fee, if you reserve early."
