About Devaki

I sailed into Hanalei on a Full Moon night in 1976. It was the most beautiful place I had ever seen by moonlight & when I awakened the next morning to see the long stretch of white sand, the crescent shaped Bay, the Emerald Green Mountains I knew I had found the place I wanted to live for the rest of my life. I spent the next 4 summers there before I left my dear friends & home in Pt. Dume, Malibu in 1980. I was sad to leave my Yoga Students, family, & friends, but now I have my Kauai Yoga Students, family, friends. Kauai welcomed me with it's warm Aloha & a wonderfully rewarding job. I started teaching Tai Chi, Yoga, & Massage at Kauai Community College so that I was able to do what I love & feel able to serve the community, meeting people from all over the island from all walks of life.

I love Hanalei Sunsets so I walk, run, swim, surf, or Boogie Board every evening at Sunset. It is a 1 minute walk to Hanalei Bay & Beach, my favorite beach in the world. I have always loved being in the Ocean, but California was too cold for me so I spent time in other Tropical Paradises that were great for a vacation, but not places I could call home. This is home and I would love to share it with you.

Devaki purchased this house in 1987

Why Devaki chose North Shore

I love the Beach & being in the warm ocean and I don't love driving. I can walk to the beach in 1 minute or to Hanalei Village in 10 minutes. Everything I need or want is in Hanalei.

What makes this house unique

This is a place to relax & enjoy the healthy Hanalei lifestyle. There is a Hanalei Farmer's Market twice a week where you can get great local produce. There are Fruit, Juice, & smoothie Bars, Harvest Health Food Store, all within a 10 minute walk from your Vacation Rental. Devaki is available for Hawaiian LomiLomi, Deep Tissue, & other forms of Massage. Devaki also teaches Massage if you want to learn. Devaki teaches Yoga & Yoga Teacher Training & was a student of Indra Devi, the First Lady of Yoga.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Elaine,

I'm happy it felt like you were "living here". That is the idea. I try to give you all the comforts of home but the freedom of a vacation. Many of my guests return every year & call it their "Home Away from Home". I hope you will come back.

Tranquil retreat with a location that can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two nights at Devaki's lovely retreat. It's a huge space which we found comfy and enjoyable. There are some quirks, but for the most part we couldn't have been happier. A few things to note, this location is extremely popular and sometimes there's noise from late night revelers. Also the close by neighbor has a new born baby which we heard crying the day we arrived. We appreciated the washer and dryer in the unit. The walk to Hanalei bay is super quick and there are tons of restaurants and activities nearby. We especially enjoyed the ice cream shop and their grilled cheese sandwiches. Thank you again Devaki for your hospitality!

Wonderful week in Hanalei!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Devaki's property. The location can't be beat -- so close to the beach at Hanalei bay! Also, it is walking distance to the shopping and restaurants in Hanalei. The unit is well equipped and Devaki was very responsive to questions that we had. We would stay there again.

Perfect Location and great host!

My wife and I spent our 10th anniversary in Hanalei, which is where we got married. The location of this rental is fabulous, a minute from the beach and five minutes to town. Devaki was very attentive and eager to fix any problem there might have been. But, there were none! She has everything very organized and thought out. I can't really think of anything I'd improve other than the internet speed, although that's not really the first thing you need when you go to Kauai! Streaming shows really wasn't really possible but with the right planning we'd download a movie all day so we could watch it after one of our numerous eight hour hikes.

Two thumbs up for this place, we would stay again for sure. Thanks Devaki!

Owner's Response: Hi Daniel, I'm so happy you and your wife found my Hanalei Honeymoon Vacation Rental to be the perfect place for your 10th Anniversary and you were able to hike all day & come back to a sweet atmosphere to relax at the end of your very active day! I hope you won't wait 10 years to come back! I was delighted to have you as the perfect guests! I love being this close to the beach so I'm pleased the magic of this location was not lost on you! It is nice to walk into town for dinner or shopping. It certainly eliminates the need for a car except when you go for those more distant hikes. I appreciate your noticing all the

Location alone makes it worth it

  • 4 of 5

Listing was as described save for two items: nowhere does it say that this is a downstairs suite in the owner's house. Also, the listing says "newly renovated" but I don't believe it to be so. The unit was adequately clean.

As a studio suite the unit was sizable and had a lovely view to the west. The owner was accommodating but gave us our privacy, which was great. I would rate this accommodation on the high side of 'middle-of-the-road'. Some of the things we found to be minor deficiencies could easily be a deal-breaker for other vacationers, but we enjoyed our stay overall.

The good:

- Great view of mountains

- Comfortable bed

- Great communication from owner before and during stay

- Superb location a stone's throw from the beach, shops, and restaurants

- Quiet unit with no noise from owner (upstairs) or outside. Very peaceful.

- Very good supply of various things we might need to enhance our stay - ie. beach chairs, umbrella, local restaurant info, towels, etc.

The Bad:

- Strange smell permeates entire unit. Mothballs maybe?

- Yard foliage is overgrown to the point that the cement path is completely covered halfway to the door, and the yard feels shadowy and closed-in.

- Lawn furniture has also been swallowed by the plants. It's obvious that attention has not been paid to the garden.

- Notes taped EVERYWHERE to explain all the broken and/or quirky things. Just fix it or renovate as needed so that there are no quirks!


Although it is nice now, I feel like this was a much nicer unit ten or fifteen years ago. Since then it seems like it has been cleaned but not updated. The fridge has a water dispenser that doesn't work; the washing machine only works on the permanent press setting; and the yard was very overgrown, for example. One other other notable deficiency was the cheap foam furniture in the living area. It was so obvious that the owner took great care in decorating the unit and making it look pleasantly Hawaiian (and does a great job of it!) that sitting down on furniture that seemed like it was meant either for a patio or a kid's room ruined the mood that was so carefully crafted. We sat on the very comfortable bed or kitchen chairs instead.

We were satisfied with our stay. The owner obviously wanted us to be happy but was also unobtrusive. With light renos this unit could easily jump into the 'superb' category. The location alone makes it worth it and we had a great time.
