We raised our family in this house on the river. It truly is Magic. We just renovated. It is like new and ready for you!

What makes this house unique

This is the best location on Kauai. Everything is right here. This is where the people who know the island want to live. Wailua is the only navigable River in the state and has a great Beach, why go anywhere else?

Great place to stay on your Kauai vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay at the Wailua Beach and River House! The house is large with plenty of bedrooms, comfortable beds and supplied everything with which to cook in the kitchen. It had a great location only about a minute's walk from the beach and right on the beautiful Wailua River and close to grocery stores, restaurants ,etc. It was great having kayaks, bikes and other entertainment equipment available for our use. The Allens were friendly and helpful with suggestions as we planned our Kauai trip. If we return to Kauai, this is the place we'd want to stay again!

Look No Further

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 with grandparents, kids and grandkids stayed in this lovely home for a week celebrating my retirement. The owners, Greg & Joanne, are the type of owners that you want to do business with - they live nearby and are available if you need anything, but are never intrusive. This home is so comfortable and inviting, we felt at home within minutes of unpacking. It is exactly what we needed to relax and de-stress. The master suite is a little bit of heaven with a large closet, huge two head shower and large flat screen tv. The air conditioning and ceiling fan kept the room at just the right temperature for a great sleep each night in the comfy bed. 10 people sharing a house for a week could be a little much, but the design of the house felt that we each had some separate space when needed.

The kitchen has just the right amount of equipment, pots, pans and kitchen tools to enable cooking (and saving money on restaurants). And there is a super awesome griddle on the deck powered by propane. We cooked burgers, sausages, chicken & pancakes on it keeping the heat outdoors. The kids loved the theater room for movies and sports, but honestly, even though there are flat screens throughout the house, we hardly turned them on. The deck and the river was all the entertainment we needed. It was great fun to watch the outriggers practicing late in the afternoon - especially with the littles at the oar.

The house has a huge array of "toys". kayaks, paddleboards, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, life jackets, bikes and helmets - even cornhole and darts for outdoor play that everyone can enjoy. If anyone is bored, they just aren't trying to have fun.

The house is just minutes to Kapa'a and also just minutes from the airport, maybe 15 minutes from Costco. The pictures don't do the interior of this house justice. If you are looking for a large house with direct water access, look no further. I can't say enough good things about this home and would recommend it without hesitation,

Beautiful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved staying here. There was plenty of room. It has a movie room and my granddaughter used it as a bedroom and loved it. So we had 6 bedrooms. It’s hidden from view so it feels secluded. You are close to shopping places. We enjoyed the view from the upstairs balcony. They have snorkel gear, paddle boarding and bikes. You can go in the water out back or walk to the beach nearby. Perfect place for memories. Thank You Greg and Joanne.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Joanne and Greg were very nice. Their home was very spacious and clean. We had amazing time thanks to all the amenities the home came with. Enjoyed kayaking, bike riding, snorkeling, and playing basketball. The home was very welcoming. Most definitely hope to return.

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.
