Overview

About the property

Jungle house 0.6 miles from the ocean sleeps 4 with river and mountain views

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION:

Buddha said that when you can see 100 shades of green, you have truly reached heaven. This is the feeling you will have at Hale Kuleana, our beautiful tropical jungle paradise home nestled in the Wainiha River Valley. Lush vegetation surrounds you in all directions, with an unobstructed view of the sights and sounds of the Wainiha River. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is private, comfortable, and a perfect place to relax, reflect and rejuvenate. The 600 square foot master suite on the second floor has its own tub, shower and lanai. Downstairs are two more bedrooms with new bamboo flooring, full bath, a large open living room, complete kitchen, and dining area. There is also a screened-in lanai with a large dining table, sitting area and hammock.

Near some of the most beautiful spots on the entire island and yet with so much to see comfortably at your own doorstep, you may not want to leave the house for days on end. Stare out at Wainiha Mountain, sit along the river, lounge or dine on the large lanais, nap in the hammock, or relax in the hot tub. Only a few miles to the west are Tunnels and Ke'e, two of the most scenic beaches on Kauai. A short drive east takes you to Lumahai and Kahalahala beaches, and the quaint town of Hanalei with its restaurants, shopping, farmer’s market and perfectly shaped crescent bay.

100 Shades of Green—Hale Kuleana is a tropical paradise. It is very private, but there are neighbors and a shared driveway. It is best suited for couples and families who enjoy the peace and quiet that nature provides.

Quiet perfection in paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to unwind immersed in the beauty of the north shore, this is your spot! The pictures paint an accurate portrait, but you have to see it to truly appreciate this stunning property. The master is huge and comfortable. There are two singles in one of the downstairs bedrooms which isn't shown in the picture and the other downstairs bedroom has one larger bed and limited natural light. We enjoyed bananas from the tree outside, star watching from the hot tub, quick trips to amazing beaches and hanging out on the spacious, screened lanai (a few mosquitos still get in of course, so bring bug spray!) It's important to note that there is another rental a stone's throw from the kitchen side behind a screen of foliage, so there is an expectation for quiet especially in early AM and night time. Not at all a problem for our small family of three, but not a match for those wishing to party on the lanai until the wee hours!

Gano was a great host who provided a welcome book full of tips and helpers and was always quick to answer questions. It was by far our favorite of the 3 Airbnb/VRBO homes we stayed in around the island. I would gladly board a plane and head back this minute!

100 Shades of Green is 1,000 shades of glory!

Magical

  • 5 of 5

The house is just like in the photos and is set on a side road in a river valley but close enough to the charming town of Hanalei for groceries, restaurants etc. We picked the most delicious papaya from the yard! The views of the river and mountains are stunning. After spending a week on Kauai and exploring every corner, we both agreed that Hanalei was by far our favorite spot on the island.. from the lush vegetation, to the beautiful homes to the best places to eat and shop. The owner Gano is extremely responsive and super helpful. It felt like we were staying at a friend's home. Would highly recommend.

Wow! True Hawaii living!

  • 5 of 5

I hope to one day own a house just like this one. It is so beautiful and better than I imagined. Gano has done an amazing job decorating and making guests feel comfortable. Top of the line appliances, beds were comfy, Hawaiian decorations. I love the screen porch area. It was a lifesaver because the Mosquitos can get bad in the evening but the porch allows you to stay outside late and watch the geckos. The house is minutes from North Shore beaches. Gano was so responsive and easy to deal with. Everything was smooth and easy. I hope to stay here again soon! Oh, and even the gardener was very nice, he offered to cut us down bananas from one of the trees.

Thanks for everything Gano.

The PERFECT vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here 9 years ago and I still think about it :) In fact we're not able to go back just yet because our daughter is still too little to travel that far to Hawaii but I was just reminiscing and decided to look to see if it's still a rental property. This house is amazing!! The views, the quietness, the sounds of nature are all around you. Waking in the morning with a cup of coffee and sitting out on the back patio doesn't get any better than this. And all of kauai's best is right around you. I just hope it's still available for rent when we get the chance to go back!! (The date I had to choose above is not the true date of our arrival....there was no option to date back that far)

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I met the prior owners of this property on our honeymoon 15 years ago and told us that when we came back, we had to stay. I never forgot the name "100 Shades of Green." We are so happy we found it when we planned our trip back, but this time with our kids. The property was stunning, the house beautiful and just perfectly furnished. It's a drive to get to the south side of the island, but it was no problem for us because we prefer the north side anyway. We would go back in a heartbeat. I almost hate to tell people that to save the secret for ourselves! Thank you for a WONDERFUL vacation!

The house is situated six tenths of a mile up the beautiful Wainiha River Valley. It is like a walk back in time to the way Kauai used to be. You'll want to walk along this road at different times of day to enjoy the views and the vegetation of the valley. Just two miles west are many beaches including Haena State Park, Tunnels Beach (featuring great snorkeling with views of the famous Makana mountain peak) and in another mile you’ll be at the end of the road at Ke’e Beach and the start of the Kalalau trail and the NaPali Coast. To the east, you have Kahalahala Beach, Hanalei Bay and the charming town of Hanalei all within three miles. Swimming, body boarding, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, ziplining, kite surfing and more are in abundance on the lush North Shore. Other beautiful northshore beaches nearby include: Hideaways, Queens Bath, Anini, Secret, Kalihiwai, Larsens, and Moloaa Bay. The historic Limahuli Gardens are just 3 miles away and give you a glimpse of Hawaii’s past, as well as providing amazing views of the Limahuli Valley.
