About the property

ALOHA! This beautiful unique home is the perfect get away for those who truly want to experience the adventure of Kaua'i's North Shore. This is 'Old Hawai'i' at its best! Centrally located in Wainiha, about 1/4 mile inland from Wainiha Bay directly on the Wainiha River -- midway between Hanalei Town & renowned Hanalei Bay and the famous 'End of the Road' at Ke'e Beach & the Kalalau Trail along the Na Pali Coast...Minutes from all the best beaches, restaurants, shops, galleries, & more.

This attached unit has all the comforts of home -- private entrance, covered lanai (porch) & parking, full size/double bed, full kitchen, dining area, living room with cable TV, wireless internet, telephone including long distance, and more. Additional amenities like beach towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs, umbrella & cooler provided. Washer/Dryer available on site.

This vacation home is a lock-out, our family is located immediately next door. There is a shared washer & dryer available for guest use. The phone is also a shared land-line. There is wireless internet, cell phone service is not very reliable. (However, with the internet, FaceTime & text messaging often work on most Smart Phones.)

We live immediately next door with our two young daughters, if you have any questions or needs feel free to ask, or we are happy to allow you your space to relax and enjoy on your own. We have a friendly dog (labrador-golden retriever) and two outdoor jungle cats who show up now and then.

We are located in Wainiha -- a special place hidden among Kauai's North Shore. This is a rural area, accessible by a dirt road, which all cars can access. It is a small quiet local neighborhood where most people know each other. There are kids and dogs at play and chatty roosters here and there. This is a tropical jungle environment. It's the perfect place for those seeking solitude and/or outdoor adventures and far from your typical resort or condo experience.

Cars are highly recommended, but sometimes people choose to go by bike or foot... We are located in a rural area, the closest grocery store is located in Hanalei about 4 miles away and closest gas station is located in Princeville.

On the River! Best of North Shore Kauai
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Beautiful property tucked away on a quiet road in Wainiha.

  • 5 of 5

The yard is exceptionally beautiful with the river running through, and the house itself is clean and comfortable. The hosts were perfect - easily reachable and responsive, friendly, and relaxed. Hope to be back soon.

Peaceful retreat. Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved the peaceful sounds of the river. We were in close proximity to snorkeling, the Napalei trail, and world class surfing. Our hosts were so accommodating with suggestions for food & activities. We have stayed here multiple times and highly recommend the river house
