Why mark thorrington chose North Shore

Hanalei Bay is our dream location. We had been vacationing in Kauai for some time and were intrigued by buying on the island. Once we stumbled upon Hanalei's beach, we knew we found the location. We have a big family that loves to surf, sunbathe, swim, snorkel, walk/run on the sand, play beach volleyball, and living on the sand was our priority. The Dolphin house fits our expanding nuclear family of 6, and is on the sand. We found our dream!

What makes this estate unique

Ocean front property is tough to come by. The large lawn leading to the sand is relaxing. We use the outdoor bbq regularly. We love the wi-fi, and high definition satellite TVs. New ipod docks built into every bedroom in the house connected to house wide speaker system. We are in close proximity to pretty much everything a Hawaii vacation offers.

Amazing property beautifully maintained and appointedand well sited next to a charming village. It was the perfect location for our family to meet up.Both the owner and manager were very accommodating in our dealings and prompt with all communication. For us it was a once in a lifetime splurge but we have no regrets!!

3rd stay at this incredible property.

  • 5 of 5

We just recently returned from our 3rd stay at this incredible property in Hanalei. Located right on Hanalei Bay this house is nothing short of amazing. The bedrooms are all large and well furnished, the kitchen is very well equipped and the house has plenty of gathering spaces for your large group. The town of Hanalei is a 5 minute walk away, the Napali coast is just down the road and the beach is a 30 second walk out the back door making this location absolutely perfect.

We made a trip to Costco on the first day of our trip and other than some outdoor activities and a couple of dinners in town had no reason to ever leave the house. Most days were spent enjoying the view and the amenities at the house (beach, pool table, large lawn, beautiful garden and spacious kitchen). This was our third visit to the property. The owner continues to invest in the house making it nicer each time we go.

We will definitely return and have already inquired about dates for our 4th visit!!!

Amazing home in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most beautiful homes and locations anywhere in the world. Hanlei Bay, Kauai at the Dolphin House. The home was private, gorgeous and comfortable for a family. We had 10 people and there was plenty of room for all. Hired a private Chef, Jessica, for a couple dinners. Delicious! So much to see and do in Kauai we want to go back. Pricey but perfect in every way. Worth every dime! LOVED IT!!!!

Wow! Amazing property and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends (4 couples and 1 child, 1 toddler and 1 baby) all thoroughly enjoyed our week at Kai Nani. The house itself is beautiful and very spacious, each couple had a large bedroom with en suite and there was a huge well equipt kitchen and indoor and outdoor seating area where we enjoyed many meals. The garden is stunning, it was great to be able to walk straight down the lawn onto the beach and the surf breaks and the garden is extremely well maintained and added to the beauty of the property. It was quiet and private and a perfect location to be able to walk everywhere we wanted to go during the week. Thank you for a great stay, we hope to make it back again one day!

Exceeded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Often when I read reviews, I look for the critical ones to get another view point. After our week stay, I can not imagine anyone having a complaint about Dolphin House.

We were looking for the perfect family spot for 10 adults and 3 children, 2yrs. to 6 yrs.It could not have been a better situation for us. The children were on NYC time and often up at 5 am. We renamed the separate cottage, The Morning House, we were able to go there w/the children. It allowed for a quiet main house for the adults to sleep in.

The kitchen was so beautiful and well equipped. We found it very difficult to leave the house and incredible grounds.

Jessica and Cola could not have been more hospitable and helpful. We enjoyed Jessica's delicious cooking and charm. The owners were very responsive to our questions and needs. Thanks to all.

My husband and I are very familiar with the North Shore after many visits to Kauai. We both agreed that this was the BEST of them.

Amazing Experience We Will Never Forget

  • 5 of 5

All I could wish for after my week stay at Dolphin House is that we had booked it for longer!

There are so many wonderful things I could say about the house, the grounds and beachfront setting but the exceptional service given by the house manager and chef/concierge, Cola and Jessica, respectively, really make one's stay at this vacation house an unforgettable one. Upon arrival, Cola and Jessica, warmly welcomed us for the tour of the house, patiently answered all our questions while we familiarized ourselves with the house. They set the tone for a wonderful week with my family, 10 people in total plus nanny. We were all extremely comfortable and the house suited all our needs plus exceeded expectations. We hired Jessica to cook for us one night and it was amazing, she provided a beautiful and world class meal of Hawaiian flavors, catered to our dietary needs and budget with ease. I would find it hard to find a better rental on the island or on any island for that matter. We had the most beautiful setting and view from the house, the lawn, beach access, could walk to Hanalei for anything we needed. It was just perfect! Will definitely book again.
