About the property

3br/2ba home on large lot, 600ft to beach, bordering preserve, close to tunnels

Welcome to Cook Hale, your tranquil escape to Ha'ena on the north shore of Kauai. Ha'ena is home to some of the best beaches and most beautiful scenery in the world. Cook Hale is conveniently located near tunnels and across the street from a footpath that leads 200 meters to a beautiful sandy beach. Come back from the beach and relax on the huge lanai facing the preserve while listening to the birds singing!

New to the rental market, Cook Hale has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, dining, and living room all on the second level. The open floor plan, opening onto the lanai, all facing the wooded preserve and mountains, takes full advantage of the property's setting. This private retreat is tucked away on a 12,000+ sf lot, and has covered parking for two cars underneath. There is also laundry, storage, and barbeque on the ground level.

Tunnels beach is 1/2 mile away. Tunnels is known to have world class snorkeling when it's calm, and world class surfing when it's not! Mediterranean Gourmet is even closer with great food and entertainment. The Napali coast is less than two miles away with incredible hiking and waterfalls. Several dining, shopping, and entertainment options are also available in historic Hanalei, just about 6 miles away.

Comfortable house, serene setting, walk to beach, close to creature comforts and outdoor adventures alike; this house is sure to please!

Why Todd chose Haena

Ha'ena is truly a tropical paradise, with everything you need within a short walk or drive. I love having the feeling of seclusion the home has, facing the preserve, but not having to walk down Kuhio Hwy to get to the beach, because of the proximity to the path.

Great location, great deck!

  • 5 of 5

The north shore is quiet, very few tourists come here. Mostly you hear the sound of birds, the wind & rain. This house had everything we wanted, and we loved being on the deck all the time: breakfast, dinner, reading books, watching the garden.

Lovely, secluded paradise

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at this home very much. It suited our family very well, it had all the amenities necessary for our vacation. We have a young family and the yard provided endless entertainment, it was plenty big for them to feel like they were exploring. The location is lovely, very secluded and set enough off the the road to not hear much noise. We enjoyed the pasture land and visitors (aka, cows and birds) from the lanai. It was very hot while we were visiting but the ac units in the bedrooms cooled the home off well and there were plenty of fans to use to cool the rest off. The outdoor shower and laundry area were so helpful. Our one complaint was that the wifi was very spotty, it helped to create an unplugged feeling which is nice on vacation... except, when it's not - then it was just frustrating but we managed okay with the communication we didn't need to make. There is a land line available for use at the home. We are fairly flexible especially when it comes to vacations, but I can see the wifi being an issue for other people.

The location relative to activities on the island was great for some things and a far distance for others. The beauty of the north shore was unmatched and we loved having easy access to Tunnels beach (which was great for our young children as the surf wasn't up too much yet), the trailhead for Kalalau trail was convenient as well. We did venture to the south shore and Waimea Canyon and the drive was long but we knew it would be from our preparatory research for our trip.

All in all, a great home, mahalo for sharing it!

Relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time here. The house is well stocked with beach towels, bikes, snorkels, beach chairs etc.... The kitchen had everything we needed to make all our meals. The deck was a great place to sit in the evening and view the stars. There are several hoses and a outside shower to wash the sand off. The yard was a great place for our grandson to play. And the beach was just a short walk, the sunsets there were the best. We even loved Shadow the cat.

Another great Kauai vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just as described. This was a great value rental for us.

Charming place for sure. We joked that it was Ron Burgandy's swanky old 70's vacation pad. Very functional kitchen. Good gas grill. Good beach toys and bikes. Boogie board. Surf board. Beach chairs. Cooler. The lanai is incredible. Everyone said their beds were comfy.

The trail across the street actually leads to Kepuhi beach not Tunnels. There are beautiful tide pools there that were fun to play in but no swimming from Kepuhi. Great sunset watching spot just a SHORT walk up the beach.

For Tunnels and Kee we loaded up our van dropped everyone off with all the gear we needed for a day and took the van back to the house to avoid all the parking issues there and just rode the bikes back down again to meet everyone.

Five mins from Wainiha. Ten mins from Hanalei.

Great place and the owner was very easy to work with. Don't hesitate on this one.
