9. A Wildlife Sanctuary With A Cocktail Hour !

Located on the scenic North shore of Kauai, in Kilauea at the doorstep of the luxurious Princeville Resort lies Hale Mana, a three acre multi-million dollar private estate. Hawaiian for 'house of spiritual awakening' Hale Mana does not disappoint.

This plantation style home is perched high on a volcanic ridge with pristine, 360-degree views of the ocean, valley, mountains, waterfalls and river below. The valley itself is home to numerous ancient 'heiaus' or 'places of worship,' so sacred only the high priests and chieftains were allowed. Back on property you will discover "Kahelelani" or "Stairway To Heaven" where you can picnic, meditate or simply behold the breath taking beauty from this unique observation point 200 feet above the river valley floor. Or chose to relax in the incredibly stunning Zen Meditation Garden. The valley is also home to a National Wildlife Refuge protecting rare and endangered avian species. During the day tropicbirds, frigates, albatross, and nenes circle high above the home as if to form a halo. And at nightfall, under a giant dome of starry wilderness, you can drift off to sleep to the melody of the nearby waterfalls. One of the most unique and pristine properties on the planet - Kauai at its best!

All told, Kauai is NOT the hustle-bustle of Honolulu or the touristy madness of Maui. To visit Kauai and Hale Mana is to travel back in time to a bygone era, to a more peaceful and provincial existence, where words like on-ramps, freeways, and smog have yet to taint the universal consciousness. It’s a sanctuary where skyscrapers are replaced by palm trees and busy intersections with one-lane bridges. And following closely in step are the islands most precious natural resource... its' people. For them, words like community, family and neighbor are still spoken with reverence. Mainlanders call this warm phenomenon the 'Aloha Spirit' and it’s as certain to welcome and embrace you at Hala Mana as are the prevailing trade winds.

Impossibly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about how absolutely stunning this property is. If you are looking for the lush nature of Hawaii that you see in the movies, this is it. Pictures do not do it justice. You can see a waterfall on one side of the yard and the ocean on the other. The house is all windows so even if you are inside, you are still surrounded by nature. If you're going with another family as we did, you'll need to negotiate who gets the huge master suite. All the bedrooms have great views and were comfortable. Neal and Barbara were so great and always available to advise us during our stay.

There were 4 beaches within 5 minutes of the property. Two of the beaches were where the river meets the ocean. Having access to salt and fresh water at the same location was nice. Having both also helps if you are traveling with different level swimmers as the river was so calm and chill compared to the ocean.

The town of Kilauea is really cute and close. The Ono burritos at Paco's Tacos are amazing. The poke at the Fish Market was really great as well. Also, don't miss Sushi Girl if sushi is your thing (you won't find them on yelp, but they are in the same center as The Bistro Restaurant which was excellent as well). For shopping in Kilauea, do not miss stepping into the Hunter Gatherer Gallery. It's a beautiful space and has everything you could ever want. Check out the Stephen Estelle jewelry there.

Hanalei is 15 minutes away and is magical. Do not miss a night at Tahiti Nui Restaurant and Bar in Hanalei- the live Hawaiian music and really good mai tais, were a real highlight for us. We went there on our first and last nights of our trip. You should also go to St Regis Hotel in Princeville (10 minutes from house) for a sunset cocktail. The beach is public and super kid friendly- as everything in Kauai seems to be.

One more highlight- find the Okolehao Trail (ask Neal). It's on the way to Hanalei from Kilauea and the hike was stunning. It's super slippery though, so grab a walking stick when you start- there was a stack at the entrance. It's a hike through the jungle that is challenging, but the view at the top should not be missed.

Have the best time- this place is sooo worth it.

Stunning views even from the inside

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous house with views out every window. While we were there tropicbirds nested just past the edge of the property. The house is spacious enough that 8 of us did not feel cramped. Hosts went out of their way to make check in as pleasant as possible. If you like baths this one has a spectacular view of the falls.

Peaceful perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Neal and Barb are the ultimate hosts who make every effort to make sure their guests are well cared for and experience the joy of their immaculately kept home. The house is stunning. If you want to sleep in on your vacation, you may find yourself battling the urge to get up and watch the sunrise over the ocean from the wrap around porch. Listening to the birds and watching the sky change colors over the lush backdrop of tropical paradise made us feel like we were all alone in the Garden of Eden. From the back patio, the sights and sounds from the waterfall are mesmerizing. The beach is only a 5 minute drive away. We did not miss having a beachfront property or a pool. We always looked forward to returning to our gorgeous retreat. Our family of four absolutely loved our stay!

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious, clean, and well-maintained. But you really just need to rent this house for the views! The location feels secluded and private, and there are amazing views in different directions all around the property (including from the outdoor shower). We loved watching the sun rise, the egrets fly by, and the clouds float up from the river. We were patting ourselves on the back all week for being in such a great spot.
