Anini Kai is 100 steps away from pristine Anini Beach and Reef. The beach and reef are accessible via a sandy path from the house. When exploring, short interesting trips include traveling north on the Kuhio Hwy towards Princeville and Hanalei. Along the route you'll find horseback riding, zip-lining, fruit and vegetable stands, helicopter rentals, restaurants, golf courses and fantastic scenery. Princeville is about four miles by road from Anini Kai and is a splendid well manicured resort community containing fine hotels, golf courses, tennis courts, shopping mall, galleries, restaurants, grocery store, fuel station, post office, library and bank. Sunset at the St. Regis Hotel is a must for anybody visiting the Island. Three miles past Princeville is the historic town of Hanalei, which is a mecca for surfers, musicians, artists, movie people, tourists and locals. Hanalei is an ideal place for browsing and shopping for sports wear, art & jewelry, ukuleles, snorkel gear, bike rental, groceries and food. The town of Hanalei offers a wide array of restaurants serving everything from fine seafood cuisine to pizza and Bubba Burgers. Hanalei Bay is wonderful setting for watching or participating in surf tournaments, learning how to surf, kayaking, picnicking and just hanging-out. To the south of Anini Kai is the Kilauea Lighthouse and surrounding bird sanctuary. This site is one of the most popular in Kauai and has amazing views of the ocean, gardens and wildlife. Windsurfing and deep sea fishing are available down Anini Road at Anini Beach Park. Activities that may be enjoyed a short distance of the house include, swimming and snorkeling with sea turtles in the protected reef area of Anini Beach; whale watching; fishing; photography; paddle boarding; cycling; shelling and world class golf.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: John is a Registered Professional Geologist who is semi-retired and past Principal Owner of a General Contracting Firm and Real-Estate Holding Company. John holds degrees in Geology and Philosophy. Shannon is retired and keeps herself occupied taking care of the family accounts and holdings. After having had traveled and worked extensively throughout South America and Europe during the last 20 years we found Anini Kai on the North Shore of Kauai in 2009. Following a number of extended vacations at Anini Kai we jumped at the opportunity of purchasing the property from a long-time friend. We have found that the Spirit of the people of Kaua'i, the spectacular flora, fauna, scenery and beaches are unmatched by anywhere else in the world. We and our children love to visit Kaua'i at every opportunity and cherish everything the Garden Isle has to offer. We believe our home, neighborhood and beach allow the perfect blend of privacy, colorful gardens, climate and sporting activities to allow oneself to easily adjust to the peaceful pace of the Island and Aloha Spirit.

Why the Owner Chose Kilauea, HI, USA:
Grab a surf board, sunbathe, snorkel, cycle or shell-enjoy everything Anini Kai and its beach location have to offer. The home is well-suited to the simple pleasures of quietly taking time to read a good book on the lanai or contemplating the beauty of a Hibiscus flowers in the backyard. There is nothing more exciting to watch than a new swell of waves entering the North Shore and the grand parade of professional and local surfers answering the call. Anini Beach is perfect for people of any age whether alone, a couple, or family with young or older children. Our children have always enjoyed their vacations at Anini Kai and are always wanting to get back to this Island retreat and its lifestyle. Anini Kai is the perfect home and setting for short and long-term vacations and is located on one of the most enticing beaches and reef complexes of the Islands and entire world. Walk 100 steps-enjoy Paradise!

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
A short sandy path between two beautiful beachfront estates allows access to the beach and ocean. An outdoor shower is available for use at the rear of the home. Following beach and exploring activities come home to lounge on the spacious lanai then make a tropical meal in our fully-stocked kitchen or prepare an outdoor feast on the BBQ (don't forget to pick spices to flavor your meals from the backyard). The home and grounds are always immaculately manicured and kept by our friend and Property Manager (Phil) who lives with his wife in Kapa'a. Phil is always willing to answer guest questions and provide guidance for the house.
