My family stayed at this amazing property !

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at this house. It has everything you could want in a Hawaii vacation rental. Waterfront, close to the beach, shopping dining and lots of activities. Greg took my family on his ski boat (which is included) and my boys had an amazing time wake boarding.

The house has all the water toys available to use. We kayaked, paddle boarded and snorkeled. We will return again and again. Highly recommend this great Kauai property!

Hawaii Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the beautiful Wailua River house during our Hawaii vacation. We had stayed in a hotel in Waikiki, so what a treat it was to fly to Kauai and stay in such a beautiful home. The view from the house on the Wailua River was absolutely stunning! My children had so much fun walking from the house to the beach, walking back to the house and then playing in the river. The house is comfortable, clean and has everything you need. I had been wishing for a great beach chair during my Hawaii vacation and the owners of the Wailua house made sure I had one! The wrap around porch is one of my favorite parts of the house. While the rest of the family left to water ski on the beautiful Wailua river, I stayed and read a book on the porch. Bliss! This house is close to restaurants, beaches, stores and any where else you want to go. The owners are local Hawaii residents so they had great advice on where to go and what to do. There is plenty of space in this house to have little ones asleep while the bigger kids watch a movie and the adults visit. The open kitchen and living room area is a great gathering space with a gorgeous view. We will definitely be staying in this house again! Thank you for such an amazing time!

Wailua River Home

  • 5 of 5

This vacation house was in the perfect location for us. Just off the back yard was the Wailua River that flows into the ocean about 200 yards down and lazily flows down from the mountains. Great for kayaking up river or water skiing, we did it all. The house is very modern and roomy with all the latest amenities. There is even a home theater room for those nights you want to relax and catch a movie. The home is wired for listening to music inside and out courtesy of Pandora or just plug in your own device. There is a Jacuzzi Spa on the back balcony to relax and take in the view. We also enjoyed lying in the hammock next to the river. The house has it's own boat dock which is equipped with kayaks to cruise the river. The beach is within a short walk or swim down the river to layout by the crashing waves. You can either cook or BBQ in, or just down the road are a large pick of restaurants to choose from, a small shopping mall with a grocery store to stock up on food. There is even a short hike to a waterfall close by. This place has it all, great views, beautiful sunsets, best hiking, every water sport imaginable. When we come back to Kauai this will definitely be the place for us. We highly recommend this fun vacation spot especially for large families.

Flagstaff, Az

The best waterskiing and wakeboarding in the world.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here and was very satisfied with the entire house, it was clean comfortable and had everything we needed. The river was glassy and beautiful, I've waterskied in many locations, without question, this was the best. We kayaked up the river to the Fern Grotto, and down the river (~150 yards) to the mouth of the Wailua river where we swam and surfed in the ocean waves! The home theater and spa were the perfect way to wind down after long day of playing. This rental helped make our dream vacation into many perfect vacation memories. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone considering it.

There’s a lot to do and see here in Wailua. At Lydgate Beach Park you'll find snorkeling in sheltered lagoons, picnic areas, and two exciting playgrounds for the kids. Go upriver to the Famous Fern Grotto, and Secret Falls Hike. Smith’s Luau is one of the very best on Kauai. Nearby you’ll discover the Sleeping Giant Hike, Opaekaa Falls, and Wailua Valley Lookout.

Wailua has some of the finest restaurants on the island, long beaches, and lots of great shopping. Visit the Coconut Marketplace and Historic Kapaa Town. Want more? The East Side has more beaches, shops, activities, restaurants, and the only navigable river in the state. The East Side is central to the whole island.
