About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Nestled comfortably in the hills of Kauai's South Side, in an upscale area, secluded and away from the salt air and noise of resorts. This is a 1500 sq. ft. luxurious Tropical Hawaiian custom home. This house is perfect for a romantic getaway for two or roomy accommodations for two couples.

The fresh tradewinds blow gentle breezes through this amazing house, filled with antiques and custom furniture. It is equipped with “top of the line” everything from the dishes, linens, pillows and bed to the doors and floors. There is a gentleness to this Hawaiian house that gives the feeling of peace. Whether lounging on the screened lanai or soaking in the outdoor hot tub, it's luxury at its best.

There are two master suites each with queen beds and huge walk in showers. The suites are privately located on either ends of the house. This home is appointed with real tropical hardwood floors throughout, Gourmet kitchen, and an unbelievable attention to detail.

A personal Chef is available for romantic dinners at home or if you would like, a massage done in the privacy of your own home away from home.

This is the kind of home that is so comfortable you won’t want to leave, but when you do it's just 10 minutes to lovely Koloa Town, the oldest plantation town on the island with quaint shops, restaurants and local grinds (food), 15 minutes to Poipu’s beautiful beaches, surfing, golf and fabulous restaurants and 15 minutes from Port Allen where you can embark on an adventure to the breathtaking Napali Coast or a romantic sunset cruise.

About Faye or Bob Brenner

Bob and I married 30 years ago. We were and are still in business together which we can conduct through the Internet. The first time we came to Kauai in 1999- we fell in love with it. The beauty of the land and the aloha of its people, for us it is paradise. We decided on that first trip that we would live here . It has been a good decision. After 16 years we are still in love with Kauai. A love we enjoy sharing with our guest.

Faye or Bob Brenner purchased this house in 2008

Why Faye or Bob Brenner chose Lawai

We built this house from the ground up. Having been home builders and designers for some years, we had great fun designing it just the way we liked. This house was not originally built as a guest house, but as a home for Bob's father. No cost was spared in the building or furnishing of this house. It is obvious when you see it. Bob's father found a retirement living situation that he loves and now only comes once a year. Now we have the fun of sharing this beautiful house with our guest. Its very private and romantic - a good percentage of our guest are on their honeymoon.

What makes this house unique

This house feels like its in the middle of nowhere, but its only minutes to almost all of what Kauai has to offer. Its located down a country lane then turn on to a short cul-de-sac where there is very little traffic. Its such a safe quiet area . The hot tub is located outside in your own private court yard. All the windows look out to lush foliage. Since this house is located 800 ft above sea level, the breezes are cool - actually the temp. is perfect, never a need for A/C or Heat. You can leave the windows open year round and feel the fresh trades winds.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at this house when visiting Kauai. We have visited the island 5 times and generally stay one week on the south shore and then move up to the north shore for a few weeks so we have experienced many rental homes. This has been the only house we have come back to a 2nd time.

Why? Location and quality of the rental.

The house is located up a hill in a lush forested residential area in what we think is THE prime location for visiting places across the south shore. It is not in the major tourist area but it is just a 15 minute drive there, if you want to go there. It is 5 minutes to old Koloa town, 20 minutes to Wailua, close to Hanapepe, and an easy drive to Lihue for the farmers market and Costco....etc.

The home it self is lovely and serene. It is well decorated with 2 master suites. It is clean and well maintained. I am very picky and this home met my personal requirements!

The owners live up the hill in another home and they are gracious and friendly. They dont intrude in any way and you probably will not hear from or see them at all but they are there is something comes up. They did happen to invite us to a holiday party at their home on the day we arrived which was quite an unexpected and lovely gesture and a good time!

Anyway, with that all said, I highly recommend this home but PLEASE KEEP IT NICE if you stay there...... as I am likely to be back.

Honeymoon paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying here. The home was beautiful, secluded in a perfect location on the island surrounded by tropical vegetation. We enjoyed having breakfasts on the lanai, cool breezes at night, and dips in the hot hub. We loved being able to borrow beach chairs and boogie boards to go to the beach and really appreciated the outdoor shower to wash off salt and sand from days at the beach.

It's a challenge to put into words just how tranquil this home is, and how it made our honeymoon in Kauai truly wonderful.

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The condo was central to our purposes and we especially liked the well equipped kitchen. The sunset from the lanai was wonderful.

Our winter home

  • 5 of 5

We have been privileged to experience two extended winter vacations at Hale O Ani and are returning again in 2017. That is probably, in and of itself, testimony to how wonderful this property is. But to restate the highlights and some additional insights I would like to share the following, much of which is supported by other reviewers of this outstanding property.

First is "quality". Everything, in Hale O Ani is of the highest quality. The dishes, glassware, appliances, bedding, furniture, hardwood floors. The owners Faye and Bob are delightful, fun and responsive to needs and wants and willing to share their insights into interesting side trips.

I could go on, but want to mention a few things that have proved important to us; particularly the surrounding area. When you leave Route 50 and drive up the road to the property it feels like entering Jurassic Park! The vegetation is so lush and stunning that in some places it is breathtaking. This sets the stage for a feeling of wonder and tranquility. When approaching the house from the driveway we’ve encountered Sharma Thrush singing their sweet and unusual song along with all sorts of other interesting birds. We have been fortunate enough to pick bananas off the trees in the driveway and stay long enough to eat them! The view of the palm tree from one of the bedrooms is like a live painting and the bougainvillea cascading over the hot tub in full bloom is outstanding. As a matter of fact it is the last picture I took before we left at the end of March.

All in all Hale O’ Ani is a fabulous retreat, getaway, hideaway, or whatever one chooses to call it. All we know is that it is soothing to us, both inside the property and outside where it is positioned up in the hills far enough away from the hustle (but not too far) to feel like a sanctuary. We are grateful to be able to leave Upstate NY for most of the winter and now call Hale O’Ani, our winter home. Not visitors, not tourists. We come home in the winter….

Car: necessary

Located in a beautiful rural area with parcels of land being at least 1 acre so lots of space between homes. There is little traffic as the location is up a narrow country lane and off a cul-de-sac. Great for quiet strolls or running.
