About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

If there is paradise on earth, it is at wonderful Anini Beach. Our home is located about 3 miles down Anini Beach Road, away from Anini Park and the crowds that gather or camp there. Rise with the sun and walk for miles on the beach, swim in the warm waters right in front of the house without worry of big waves (unless it is stormy out), bicycle, skate, windsurf, hike to your hearts content.

This is a private home situated in a cove, that has approximately 1650 square feet of living area. The two bedrooms are separated from one another for total privacy. The master suite has an attached bathroom; the second bedroom is located right next to the second bath. Our kitchen is outstanding, with new appliances, and has a view that most homes at Anini Beach wish for. Plus, this house does not sit up on stilts like most do, which means that with some effort from a guest, it might be wheel chair accessible on a case by case basis. There are only two steps into the master bedroom. Please understand, though, there is no ramp.

You should know that our home has no television or choice of our constantly returning guests who wish to escape with their families and have real vacation time together. Even the kids don't mind as they have their parent's full attention for the entire time they are there. We do have DSL, though, if you really need a 'what's happening back home' fix.

This home is not a fancy palace with fine is a beach house where you and your family can truly make yourselves at home and wash away the worries of the world by soaking in the beauty that surrounds you. So, if you expect stained glass windows and silk sheets, you won't find them here. And, we do get rain at times and sometimes we do not guaranty the weather nor offer refunds if the weather doesn't suit you. I also have to acknowldege that the County of Kauai has taken it upon itself to create parking out front for 2-3 cars just recently, to my horror, as I was there when it happened, but as one guest who has been going over for years told me,'it was eventually inevitable, as it is such a beautiful and quiet spot to spend time at'. But, we do try hard to make your stay special...and can offer rainy day tips if you need them. All you have to do is ask.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: Born and raised in Northern California, I married a 'local haole boy' and became immediately enamored with Kauai, most especially with Anini Beach. After Hurricane Iniki, I did search and rescue with the San Jose Mercury News for 6 weeks, locating 'missing' family members, and delivering tools, building materials, money, and notes of love from Mainland family and friends. I also did fund-raising for the Seniors and children in the little town of Kilauea, making Christmas and the new year a little brighter. At one time, I was considered the Kauai online expert to AOL when AOL was new. I love Kauai and Anini Beach, and enjoy sharing my knowledge and home with those who want a memorable vacation in Paradise with their family. For Reservations, please call Jo Chisholm 408-209-5708 (PST) or email For your personal knowledge, and to learn more about who I am, please review my professional history on, and search for Jo Chisholm. You may also search for my daughters on this site: Julie Chisholm, PhD, or Wendy Chisholm. Sometimes it helps to know who you are doing business with before renting a vacation home for the first time. (A licensed CA Real Estate Broker, BRE 00633697, since 1978)

Why the Owner Chose Kilauea, HI, USA:
This is one of the most beautiful spots on earth. I spent my honeymoon there 40 years ago. It is one of the most romantic places I have ever been to. My husband was born in Honolulu and raised on Kauai, mostly at Anini, and we spent the summers and holidays there with our daughters. Our oldest has twin daughters and they have started their own Anini tradition. It is a wonderful place to spend with your children, which is what Hawaiian culture is all about.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Waking with the sun rise, coffee and a walk on the beach, incredible sunsets during most of the summer months, watching for the 'green flash' from our deck, usually no waves on the beach to worry about, helping your little ones feed the crabs at dusk, reef walking at low tide, being able to let your children run on the beach most months without worry. Peaceful relaxation. No steep stairs to climb...
