Great beachfront vacation!
Beautiful setting, private, right at the beach with excellent snorkeling and a nearby restaurant. We recommend it for family groups, etc.
Perfect Anniversary Gettaway
I booked this rental on behalf of a couple for their anniversary. They had nothing but excellent things to say about their experience. It is just steps to the water and very private. For them, it was a perfect location; far enough away from the busy hotels, but close enough to town to explore. They would highly recommend both this rental and the rental company, Aloha Beach Vacations.
Truly comfortable house that delivers great location, laid back function and relaxation. Every process of rental was honest and straightforward. Peaceful, beautiful neighborhood and safe beach. The only second rate aspect was minor once I cleaned it up and got it into working order- the grill..
Awesome getaway in a secluded area
We spent our anniversary here with some friends, and this quiet location was perfect to get away from the busy resorts. The house is literally steps away from a nice beach with great snorkeling. We saw turtles almost every day, and that alone was amazing. The beaches were almost always empty, with a few other tourists or locals walking along the shore. The house was nice and had a large living area where we could all hang out, when not on the beach. The road to Haena is a little bit tedious, with many one lane bridges, but it was worth the drive. One bedroom faced the ocean, and we slept to the sound of crashing waves... very tranquil. The yard is huge, with plenty of privacy. We breakfast every day on the patio overlooking the ocean, and the stars at night were never brighter. There is a nice kitchen and we were able to get all of our shopping done and had home cooked meals almost every night. We would totally recommend this property, and would stay here again on our next visit to Kauai.
A week in December
We stayed for one week in December. The location on the beach was very nice with a quiet, but rough beach. Swimming/snorkeling was only possible on calm days. The house was private, comfortable and well equipped with excellent beach chairs/towels. Within walking distance to a Mediterranean restaurant where we had two meals (average) and one luau (inside only, with avg food, good entertainment). The house has a good barbecue and well stocked kitchen for cooking.
It is located in a quiet section of the north shore, but a very far drive from the canyon or south shore. The drive was very tricky at night with several one-lane bridges and no lights on a winding road. Even the short drive from Hanalei is dangerous and slow going on a dark night.
The house is listed as having two baths, but it really has only one (a nice one). The “second” bath is outside, downstairs and only usable if you are coming back from the beach. When we arrived the house was closed up and very hot. We turned on the ceiling fans and were showered with a rain of dust. Careful inspection found an inch of dust on the fan blades, which we had to clean before turning them on. Otherwise the house was as clean as expected for an older home. All food needs to be kept in the fridge. The smallest amount left out (even fruit) or dishes in the sink, will result in an army of ants. Two months to get the security deposit back.
Awesome House on the Beach in Haena
I spent a week at this property in Sept 2013. The house is so wonderful. Haena is 6 one-lane bridges and 6 miles outside Hanalei. We loved staying out of the fray, although it does take a long time to travel to the other side of the island. The house is clean, comfortable, and fully equipped with more than anyone could ask for. The property is private, scenic, and I slept 11 hours the first night while all my stress melted away! We spent most of our time on the North side, but made two trips to the South side for sightseeing. Hanalei is a wonderful town, and the house is so close to Tunnels and Ke'e beaches which were the best. Highly recommended.
