About Nikki Kendall (Monica)

Nikki Horgan, owner and manager of NamiNori House.

Nikki Kendall (Monica) purchased this house in 2004

Why Nikki Kendall (Monica) chose Hanalei

I designed and built this home (with the help of many many people of course). I love it and really put attention to details and comfort into it. We own the home directly behind it as well otherwise I would live in it myself! Enjoy.

What makes this house unique

The location and value is unparalleled here. You can walk to the beach, to town, to the river for kayaking. I have made every effort to make it your home, not just a vacation spot. We have bikes, surf and boogie boards, loads of amenities for kids, linens, towels, ping pong, everything you need for the beach, you name it. I am a full time resident of Kauai and am here to help out with whatever you need to make your stay memorable and comfortable. Aloha.

Wonderful house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. The location is unbeatable - right across the street from the beach facing the sunset on Hanalei Bay. Very comfortable for 6 people, the amenities of beach chairs, boogie board, paddleboard & beach towels were very nice. The park nearby is busy & noisy during the day, but better when folks leave after it gets dark. It did not interfere with the experience. And, having Pat's taco truck just outside the gate was great for fish tacos every lunch!

Owner's Response: Wonderful having you folks! Thank you for your comments--which are very helpful. Hanalei has gotten so popular over the years and people are constantly down there to enjoy the perfect beach, beautiful weather, amazing views, and epic surf. But you are right--they pack up and head home at dusk. For the right families and folks, that laid-back, Hawaiian "pau-hana" fun hour is a huge plus. Aloha and a hui ho!

Perfect House, AMAZING Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Nami Nori house - the location cannot be beat. We have stayed all over Hanalei and this is by far my favorite location. The house itself worked well for our family - the separate master suite was perfect for the grandparents while we could contain kid chaos in the main house. The house was clean and had all you could want in terms of beach gear and linens. Just FYI if you do your shopping on the way to check in to the house - the kitchen, while well appointed with all the plates, pots, pans and cutlery you could want, does not have ANY pantry items, so you will need to bring it all (salt, pepper, oil, sugar - you will need to buy it!). Also no plastic cups for kiddo or beaching purposes.

As others have noted, you do get some noise from the park across the street at night - it didn't bother us, but if you are sensitive to night time noise, just something to keep in mind. It seems to be a popular evening place for locals and tourists alike, so expect some car noise in the form of music or loud exhaust pipes...and maybe a few late night doughnuts. ;-)

Nikki the host is great and really responsive! Overall a really great find and we hope to stay there again.

Well kept beach house in great location

  • 4 of 5

Well kept beach house in great location, with lots of supplies. A little far to walk to town with small kids. Loud traffic as others have noted, but great people watching and quiets at night. The tacos are excellent.

We much enjoyed our stay. Great house in super location just across from the beach. Loved all the facilities and amenities including the outdoor hot shower which we used often. Beach chairs, surfboards, beach umbrellas ,ice chest, and beach toys for the grandchildren all much appreciated. Good restaurants and shopping in Hanalei and other great beaches nearby. House was generally well presented but probably in need of a freshen up sometime soon. Only minor criticism was that ping pong bats and balls need to be replaced. Will try to visit again sometime. Highly recommended.

A great beach house

  • 5 of 5

This house is ideally situated for the beach. There is some noise from cars entering and leaving the nearby car park, and this sometimes goes on into the night. But the rental price fairly reflects this moderate inconvenience.

We loved Hanalei and would certainly stay in this property again.
