About the property

Great Mountain/Waterfall, 3-Bedroom/2Bathroom+Enclosed Hot/Cold Outdoor Shower

Haena Sunrise ... TVNCU #5136 ... TAT# TA-160-126-3616-02

Imagine starting each morning sitting in one of the comfortable wicker lounge chairs on your private lanai at Haena Sunrise watching a breathtaking crimson Kauai sunrise, then ending the day with dinner on the second lanai watching a beautiful golden Kauai sunset while enjoying the soothing sound of the surf.

Ha’ena Sunrise is located in idyllic Haena on Kauai’s North Shore along the awe-inspiring coastline between Hanalei and the “end of the road” where the Na Pali Coast begins. It is very near Lumahai Beach, Wainiha Beach Park, Ha’ena State Park and Beach, and Makana Beach. The house is less than a two-minute leisurely walk to the nearest beach and is just down the road from the world-famous Tunnels Beach, Kauai's snorkeling nirvana. Enjoy strolling along this scenic beach beside the mesmerizing motion of the waves as you watch the sun set behind Bali Hai, the landmark mountain of 'South Pacific' fame.

With over 800 square feet of covered lanai complete with gas barbeque, tables and chairs, you will dine amid soft tropical breezes while watching the famous Kauai sunrises and sunsets. There is a spacious lanai with a private entrance to the roomy master suite which has a king-sized bed, cable television, a lovely and very comfortable reading area and a beautifully appointed large bathroom. The second lanai on the ocean side of the house is beautifully furnished with lounge chairs and side table and has a private entrance to one of the guest bedrooms.

This wonderful home features a large living room with a 42" big screen cable TV and surround-sound speakers, a fully equipped open kitchen with breakfast bar, hardwood maple floors, a 12-foot cathedral ceiling, and floor-to-ceiling windows facing the magnificent mountains. A dining room, two living room seating areas, three bedrooms, and two bathrooms round out the spacious floor plan. The house is fully equipped with wireless high speed internet service.

Outside, the tropical garden includes many traditional Hawaiian plants including different varieties of palm and Plumeria trees. After a fun time at the beach, there is an outdoor foot shower for your convenience. Then you can bathe under balmy tropical breezes in the enclosed hot water outdoor shower, if you like.

About Kauai Vacation Rentals

It all began with a vision. A desire to share the magical island of Kauai with the world. And, founder, Lucy Kawaihalau, has dedicated her life to that goal through Kauai Vacation Rentals. "In a vacation rental home or condo, you really feel like you're living here," reflects Lucy, "so bringing together home owners and guests to achieve the 'best fit' is only a part of our distinguished reputation. Our responsibilities are twofold. For our owners, we provide the best management and maintenance services so they can rest easy, knowing their homes are meticulously cared for, since they may be thousands of miles away from their investment. For our guests, we believe they should be treated like royalty." And, it is the respect for the guest that gained Kauai Vacation Rentals recognition throughout the world. A friendly team dedicated to serving the needs of guests, with attention to all the details, makes it all possible. "A vacation to Kauai is so meaningful," adds Lucy. "For some, it may be the trip of a lifetime. For others, it may be a yearly event. This is a splendid place to relax. Our guests are 'energized' when they go home. That's what we mean when we say, 'magical Kauai.' " This genuine business model embodies the Hawaiian word, 'Aloha,' and it has gained much recognition within the industry and business venues, including numerous awards. Many glowing articles have been written, from Kauai Business & Real Estate Magazine, Hawaii Business, and internationally distributed Travel & Leisure Magazine to famed Fortune Magazine. In fact, Lucy Kawaihalau was personally honored with coveted awards from the Small Business Administration and Kauai Chamber of Commerce for her successful business achievements. Lucy concludes, "I am deeply grateful for our recognition and awards. Yet, it is the phone call, with heartfelt and glowing remarks about a visit to Kauai from a satisfied guest that brings us great joy. Therein lies our greatest achievement."

The Island is really beautiful

  • 4 of 5

The Island and all it's beautiful beaches and areas to hike and Kayak are really first class, though you do need to be reasonably fit but they are described appropriately so easy to make a decision whether you are able to achieve them. The accommodation was absolutely fabulous every little detail was thought off. Location perfect very private with amazing views on the North of the Island. Only one negative the land next to the house became a camping car park we appreciated it was for a worthy cause but floodlights and a noisey generator going on over a long weekend did somewhat spoil the family party we had planned, had we been advised we would have rearranged for another evening. When we did ask if the floodlights could at least be pointed away from our bedroom they did comply as well as turning off the very noisey generator at a reasonable time. The point was I paid for privacy and quiet so that is what j should have had for the full 2 weeks. That said I could not fault the accommodation and the facilities provided.

Awesome house, awesome times!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week on the North Shore with friends, and we had an amazing time! This house was great! Shared it with another couple, so we actually had an empty room, since this is a 3-bedroom. Our friends were in two other houses a little further west. One was quite nice and closer to tunnels, but slightly more expensive. The other was a shared deal with other tenants downstairs, which our friends were not made aware of ahead of time, and with the amount they paid, they were very dissatisfied. We feel we got a decent deal with our house.

The house was awesome! Very spacious and airy! The huge living area is very bright and opens to a separate lanai on either side. Great mountain views to the South, not much to the North. The house is up on stilts, as many in this area, which gives a great view. Our friends had a sliver of an ocean view from their house, which was kinda cool. They were more or less walking distance to tunnels. Their furnishings were also more modern. The furnishings in this house are not modern, probably from the late 90's, but very decent and very clean. If that's my biggest complaint, you know it's a pretty sweet deal! Oh, I forgot: the subwoofer was dead :( Everything else, the dishwasher, washer and dryer, beach and snorkel grear, were all great to have.

The house is nicely secluded, we didn't have almost any interaction with neighbors. There is a beach path on the next lot over, but the beach here is lava, not really swimmable. Need to walk a good few minutes north to find the sandy beaches. Or better yet, go to Tunnels, or even better yet, Ke'e, especially for snorkeling. However, it's best to drive. We drove pretty much everywhere, though walking is doable as well if you're up for long walks.

Pro tip: don't miss Hanakapiai falls! If you're up for a serious hike...

Kauai North Shore was probably my favorite place in Hawaii, and I've been pretty much everywhere by now. I recommend Kauai, and recommend this house!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very light & spacious, creating a wonderful atmosphere. It is set in the most beautiful part of the island, close to beaches & hikes and well away from resorts. Kauai at it's best!

Clean, quiet, close to beach - perfect for families or small groups.

  • 4 of 5

Second time staying at this house so no question we love the location. House was clean, lots of beach toys (which was great for kids) and pretty much exactly how we remembered it. The only 2 suggestions I have for improvement are 1) dishwasher works very poorly, even after we tried cleaning filter; and 2) we had tea drinkers and no kettle!!

Otherwise was great, thank you. And thanks to the owner Henry for the champagne and a few tips about beaches and where to go!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a VRBO review of our Haena Sunrise house. Per your suggestion, we have added a teapot to the kitchen supplies. We have also called appliance repair to inspect the dishwasher. Next time you are at the house, if you suspect an appliance is not operating correctly, please let us know and we will request a service call from the appliance repair company. We are glad that you enjoyed the wine. It is provided by the owner to guests that stay for 14 days or longer. Hope to see you again on Kauai soon.
