Stables for horseback riding as well as sites for zip-lining through tropical trees may be found on the way to Princeville. Hanalei Village is about seven miles northwest of Anini Kai and is one of the coolest places on earth.

About John F. Wark

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.

John F. Wark purchased this estate in 2013

Why John F. Wark chose Kilauea

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!

What makes this estate unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was my families 2nd visit to Anini Kai so we already knew it was fabulous! But as with the first time the clean, homey feeling of Anini Kai just amazes me. Every amenity we could have wished for was there! And I love that each visitor is able to elave a few things behind knowing that someone else can use the items. We enjoyed a few extras and left a few extras ourselves! What a wonderful place to relax with comfort and just a few steps from the beach. This time my husband and I got to see a wild pig in the backyard feeding one morning...actually quite exciting. We will be back, it's just the perfect place!

Amazing location and very comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this house!! It was in great condition, great indoor and outdoor flow, and the location could not be better! Walking across the street to the beach - amazing!! The porch and grounds were great; the bedrooms all very comfortable (could get a bit warm on the second floor) and all amenities were terrific. I highly recommend!!!

Great location right across from the beach. House was just as described, spacious and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the house on Kauai. There were seven of us and we had plenty of space. It was clean and had everything we needed, including snorkel equipment and boogie boards. It is in a great location right across from the beach. While we were meeting people and participating in activities, we kept asking where the best beach is to snorkel and every one of the locals (without fail) we asked said Anini Beach. We saw turtles, many different kinds of reef fish and eels. Would definitely recommend.

Terrific location but lacks privacy

  • 3 of 5

My boyfriend and I rented it to top off our 10 days on Kauai because we love Anini Beach. While the proximity to the beach was just wonderful, the home is right on the road and Anini Road is very busy with cars going by even at 1-4 in the morning on a weeknight. Car headlights shine right in the home in both the master suite and living room. The car noise and lights made it difficult for me to sleep- the light comes through the blinds and the downstairs blinds don't function well and you have to keep the windows open otherwise it's too stuffy. So we felt very exposed when we were in the house at night and on the lanai and in the backyard. Some landscaping could help with this and getting the blinds fixed downstairs too. That being said, this is a wonderful home for a family vacation- plenty of room in the house for everyone and right at the beach. I would come back with my extended family for a beach vacation but this just isn't a great house for a romantic getaway.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six loved absolutely loved our stay at this home. What is not to love. The grounds alone are beautiful.....that is before you even make it across the street to the beach. We saw so many things just on Anini beach! I can't believe the number of sea turtles we saw here! John was very prompt each time I contacted him prior to our stay. We had no issues that required that we contact John or his on island property manager while we were there. I loved hearing the roosters every morning, as I was up before they were. We will be back. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking for their very own tropical paradise.

A perfect spot to drop below the radar!

  • 5 of 5

From our arrival, to out departure, we loved this home. It's well maintained and outfitted with everything you might need...and then it's just a short walk across the road to Anini beach! If you're looking for the beauty and quiet of the North shore without being in the midst of a resort, this is the place for you.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

I thought the house would be a little small for our group of 7 but it was perfect!! The pictures don't do the house justice for the size of it but it was plenty big for all of us.

The kitchen is very well stocked with anything you might need. There was a queen size air mattress in the house we blew up for my brother to sleep on. Everything you need for the beach is at the house which was awesome :) Fans in every room which really came in handy at night not just to cool us off but also to down out the roosters.

We absolutely loved staying here and will definitely stay here again!

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.
