                                                                      Cindy K.

                                                                      Tiki Hut on the North Shore is truly a paradise. Tucked away in a luscious garden, it is very private and quiet and yet only a few minutes walk from one of the best snorkeling beaches on Kauai. There is surfing too! Beautifully appointed, with all details thought of, this bungalow will hold you captivated. Great for a couple or a single person on retreat, it is small but just right. Two open lanais lead one to experience the outdoors while still protected from the elements, and the garden draws you out to take in the exotic flowers and vegetation that grows so easily. CB and Toni are the owners and caretakers of this beautiful place. They are private and yet are available for anything you might need to ask. If you are looking for a place that is away from the action, this is it. You will need to drive over several single lane bridges and windy mountainous roads to get to Ha'ena, where Tiki Hut is located. There is a coffee shop and restaurant about half a mile away, otherwise you will need to venture into Hanalei for groceries and shopping. That is about a 20 minute drive, more or less. Best to do this drive during daylight hours, especially if you are not familiar with it. Do a little grocery shopping before heading over if you have a chance. If it is your first time on the North Shore, you will be awestruck, and continue to be awestruck, by the beauty of the ocean and the mountains. Each day is unique. It is a very special place, and I was honored to have stayed there for 3 weeks and can't wait to return!! Aloha and, again, Mahalo to CB and Toni

                                                                      Our first visit to Kauai was amazing! We were so happy that we stayed on the North Shore and the Tiki Hut Cottage was exactly what we hoped it would be! Toni and CB are lovely hosts that have totally figured out how to make your stay memorable. We are definitely not the resort type and loved the privacy that we had at the Tiki Hut. Beach access is phenomenal and Tunnel Beach is a gem! The tropical gardens on the property are beautiful complete with serenading bull frogs. We very much appreciated all the extras that came with the Tiki Cottage like beach chairs and mats, beach umbrella, cooler, snorkel gear. Homemade banana bread, macadamia nuts, wine, coffee, chocolates were waiting for us upon our arrival! This is the perfect haven for couples! Do not hesitate to book this delightful place! We can't wait to go back!

We continue to strive to keep the Tiki Hut not only up to date but to make it a memorable and romantic experience for all of our guests, many of whom have become friends who return again and again. We appreciate all of you who have taken the time to write reviews for this property. Nugget also appreciates all the pets and hugs that he has received.

                                                                      An Amazing Place to Stay

                                                                      Michelle V.

                                                                      We absolutely loved our stay at the Tiki Hut Cottage. The cottage is delightful, the gardens are really special, and C.B. and Toni were the perfect hosts. The location on the very northern tip of the island is amazing -- and we fell in love with the beach at the end of "our" dirt road. Can't wait to return.

                                                                      Our stay on the Northshore

                                                                      Steve M.

                                                                      The property is beautiful. The Tiki Hut has everything we need to do anything wanted to do. Can't wait to come back.

                                                                      Richard S.Sacramento CA

                                                                      Far from the glitz, crowds, traffic and hubbub of Kauai's resort destinations is the sublime retreat of the Tiki Hut, in Haena, at the remote end of Kauai's North Shore. Just 2 miles from where the road ends and the fabled Na Pali Coast begins, Tiki Hut, a well-appointed, cozy cottage for two in a remarkable botanical garden setting, is a dreamscape with a dramatic mountain background and steps from world-renowned Tunnels ("Bali Hai") Beach.

                                                                      Located on a private lane, Tiki Hut is a four-minute walk to a spectacular shoreline and the little-populated golden sands and snorkel sites around Tunnels Beach. Hosts C.B. and Toni Martin are exceptional owners and caretakers of the property and the finely manicured tropical garden that surrounds their home and the adjacent Tiki Hut cottage. Guests have privacy and autonomy, although C.B. and Toni are available anytime to offer friendly information, advice or assistance. Between their home and Tiki Hut is a separate utility building with laundry facilities, if needed during your stay.

                                                                      We've stayed here three times (5 weeks total) since "discovering" Tiki Hut in January 2015. Each time seems like coming home. Early on we got the feeling we'd like to have Toni and C.B. (and their lovable golden retriever/lab, Nugget, a canine ambassador of Aloha) to be our next-door neighbors at home. Equally comfortable are the amenities of the Tiki Hut, including two lanais (off the bedroom and the living room), each with a table for enjoying breakfasts, lunches or dinners amid the tropical garden, a new 2-person hot tub, an outdoor shower, a garden hammock near the 6-foot-tall Tiki named "Pau Hana" (after work) and a supply of flippers, masks, snorkels & towels for the beach.

                                                                      To quote from the notations we left in the Tiki Hut guest book, "Your former guests say this again & again (and we echo it, too): What a superb place to unwind, relax & renew...the Tiki Hut sets a new standard for an unparalleled happiness zone."
