About the Property
Auntie's Cottage or Auntie's Ocean View, each 1 bedroom (queen) & 1 Bath
North Shore Kauai is for romance, music, healing, relaxation, peace of mind and outdoor experiences. Auntie's is 'home-away-from-home' to writers, musicians, honeymooners, anniversary celebrants, photographers, surfers, marathoners, Trans Pac sailors, travelholics, and those in need of quietude and privacy. The Aloha Spirit is a way of life and not a slogan at Auntie's.
For independent travelers not requiring on-site resort and hotel amenities. Auntie's Holiday Rentals are light, airy, and simply furnished with island furniture and original, vintage Hawaiian art, representing a bygone lifestyle. If you can forego a big-screen TV and game machines, adapt to the occasional rooster and accept the efforts to keep ahead of minor repairs in this lush, salty climate, you will find your haven here.
For cat lovers, Coco is respectful and will usually keep her distance; however, if you are a cat lover, she'll enjoy your attention; but, Coco is NOT allowed in the rentals. Some guests are sensitive to cat hair and we all need to honor their situation.
Tobacco smoking is NOT permitted on the property.
Auntie's Holiday Rentals are permitted Kauai Transient Vacation Rentals (Permit Nos. 1367 & 1369). Auntie Sunny can be reached at 808-826-5566 for questions and recommendations.
NOTE: Auntie's Cottage and Auntie's Ocean View Apt. are separate 1-bedroom rentals. A 3d guest may request an island-style futon for $6.50/night including taxes.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

Year Purchased: 1977
About the owner: Now a senior citizen, I (Auntie) came to Kauai in 1976 as a barely seasoned professional, fell hook, line and sinker for Kauai and rearranged our life to be here. With no jobs on this then-agricultural island, my family bought on Kauai's Far North Shore (the foundation of Auntie's Holiday Rentals), rented it out and simultaneously moved from the San Francisco area (Marin County) to Alaska 'for the money', working in Juneau, Anchorage and Nome for 5 years. Mesmerized by Alaska's beauty and challenges, I ended up homesteading in the 'banana belt' (on an island 45 minutes by skiff from Petersburg). Alaska remains part of life. After NAFTA, when Kauai's highly-accaimed cane production was destroyed, Kauai morphed from a multi-plantation island to a tourist destination. I permanently left behind being a law professor, lawyer and merchant mariner and focused on Auntie's Holiday Rentals, pro bono alternative dispute resolution and developing a real estate practice. My Realtor (S) license hangs with Na Pali Properties Inc in Hanalei Town, a boutique, highly service-oriented real estate firm.
Why the Owner Chose Hanalei, HI, USA:
Kauai chose me my first day here. Staying at Hanalei Colony Resorts (almost road's end) in a client's newly-purchased condo, that 1st night I realized 'Paradise had 'for sale' signs'. Life was immediately changed so as to be here ASAP. Within 2 years we had purchased this historic Kauai duplex and rented it out. Then, it was off to Alaska for better paying jobs. (Auntie was paid 2/3d the salary of men law professors; Alaska paid the women and men the same salaries for the same positions). By 1983 we were here full time and never looked back.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Auntie's Holiday Rentals is quiet, casual and private. Guests come here to unwind, heal, honeymoon and enjoy the gorgrous North Shore, the oldest part of the oldest island in the Hawaiian chain. Many relate to Kauai on a spiritual level. Outdoor activities, on land and sea, are abundant.
