About Hawaii Life Vacations

Our Honolulu family has made a tradition of vacationing on the North Shore of Kauai for many, many years. Haena, with its remoteness is truly the most special place on the planet. We are so blessed to have purchased this wonderful home so we can continue our family tradition and share the aloha with others! There is something so magical about crossing the one-lane bridges and arriving at what we feel is the end of the rainbow.

Why Hawaii Life Vacations chose North Shore

This home is so large and comfortable! Everyone can spill out of their bedrooms onto the deck. The home itself is cheerful, bright, art-filled and calming. The beach (accessible by a beach access across the street) takes you to what feels like your own private beach. Because of the large back yard, the backdrop of pastureland and awe-inspiring mountains, you are surrounded by nature.

What makes this house unique

We love to tide pool on the reef, snorkel to the right of the reef and swim in the cove to the left of the reef. We take long walks on the beach at sunset and lie under the stars at night. My son is an avid spear fisherman, skin diver and surfer. My husband is an avid fisherman. We all love the many hikes available to us on Kauai. My daughter and I enjoy yoga in Hanalei and the two farmer's markets located nearby. Ka Wai Aloha translates to 'The Waters of Aloha'. We welcome you to our home.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time at Ka Wai Aloha. The house was clean and spacious, with plenty of room for our 8 family members. Some felt very hot in the house- the glass block skylight in the bathroom seems like a heat sink. We purchased items that felt necessary, and perhaps, should be included in such a well stocked kitchen: zip lock bags, freezer packs, spray cleaner, sponges, condiments (ketchup, mustard, relish, rice vinegar, shoyu, plum vinegar, salt and pepper). The other cautionary comment concerns the neighbors on the south side. They would wash their boat (or hose something large and noisy) and run garden equipment at 6:00 AM! Not welcome at all. We were quiet and respectful of the neighborhood.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time, who could not in that part of the world, but did not feel it was good value for money. With all the added fees, cleaning fee, taxes etc it came to $877/night! The furnishings, small appliances, glasses, kitchen ware garden furniture are very cheap and tired. Unfortunately the oven and microwave had electrical faults that could not be repaired in time either. Bailey was very helpful trying to do her best and got us a new coffee machine and little toaster oven. The owners need to put something back into the property for a charge of $877 per night gross cost. The traffic noise also too some getting used to.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was the perfect size and layout for our family of 11 (1 toddler and 10 adults). There were just a few things that need attention; the refrigerator froze anything at the back and wasn't cold enough otherwise. The jacuzzi tub did not have a plug / hold water. Otherwise it was great.

Very good experience! This home is well situated and stocked for a comfortable family vacation - great kitchen, plenty of outside and inside lounging, easy walk to the beach. We loved having a yard for the kids to play in while adults watched from the lanai. Supply of yard and beach toys was great. Some road noise during the day, but very quiet at night. Loads of towels and washer/dryer setup was great. Having a personal contact for questions worked well and response time was very good.

Relaxing vacation for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of us (6 adults, 3 children - 3,6,8 years old) stayed at Ka Wai and enjoyed a very relaxing vacation. The house is in great condition, was very clean and nicely stocked, kitchen perfect for families who cook, lots of towels for bathrooms and beaches, nice yard where kids played while adults could sit on linai and keep an eye on them. Having yard toys, beach toys, beach chairs, and boogy boards was wonderful. We used the beach just across the road a lot, and walked to Tunnels and Haena beaches. The house is close to the road, and at times there was quite a bit of road noise during the day. We primarily used the linai at the back of the house overlooking the yard and were not bothered by the noise. The photos and description of amenities are accurate. Beds were comfortable, washer/driers were great, there was very easy contact with concierge for any questions, lots of hiking and other activites nearby (loved Limahuli Garden). Overall, a grand place for a diverse group to vacation!
