About Jeffrey Schneider
Aloha from Makua Beach (Tunnels) on the beautiful North Shore of Kauai. I am an architect based in Los Angeles. I have designed many high end resorts and casinos.

Jeffrey Schneider purchased this House in 2006
Why Jeffrey Schneider chose Hanalei
I am a well traveled person and the Wainiha River Valley is the absolutely the most beautiful spot I've ever seen, About 20 years ago I fell in love with the north shore of Kauai and I decided to make it a permanent part of my life. I was incentivized to work hard so I could buy a piece of paradise, which I did in 2006. I love it here like no other place in the world and I'm happy to share this magical paradise with other beach lovers and "beauty of nature" enthusiasts!

This house is a juwel in the middle of a jungle!
Rustic Jungle Getaway
The house was definitely off the beaten path and it was difficult dealing and planning around the road closures. I wish I would have known earlier on about the road closures because we almost missed a tour not knowing about them. The house itself was rustic and needed some love. I understand that it's an older house and in the jungle so you're going to get bugs but every morning we had ants on the counter event though there was no food. I would have liked to seen the house more stocked with basics of wine glasses, seasonings, coffee filters and cooking supplies. Also a few things weren't working while we were there or we couldn't figure them out; hot tub was out of service, the steam portion in the shower wasn't turning on, the water in the indoor shower didn't get very warm and the towels smelled of mold. I appreciated the owner notifying me of the road issues but feel we could have been notified sooner in case we wanted to cancel. The property manager was very nice and welcoming. The plants and foliage around the house were beautiful, to include the papaya tree. We enjoyed the outdoor shower but weren't able to fully enjoy outside due to the mosquitoes. Overall an ok place to stay for my liking but may be more appealing to others.
The property is exactly as described in the listing. Paradise on the North Shore. Jeffery is a great host and communicator. And the property manager, Koko is very welcoming and a great resource for information about the surrounding area. The deck and pool are great for sitting, soaking and taking in the beauty of the valley. We had an amazing week at Halewainiha.
Please note there are a few one lane bridges on the way to the property, and that there is an etiquette for proceeding across the bridges when others are on the other side. It helps to familiarzie yourself with this before your arrvie.
My husband and I loved staying here so much! We can’t wait to plan our next trip to Kauai, so we can stay here again!
Amazing cottage in the rainforest!
Located in the middle of the rainforest, it is a quiet peaceful place. It’s different from other parts of Kauai and for us it was enough to stay for 2 days. Explore the northern coast and have this place as your base! They’re mosquitos but hello you’re in a jungle so just bring bug spray. Loved it and had an amazing time in the hot tub overlooking the beautiful waterfalls!
