About the property

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


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.

A taste of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything you could want in a vacation house. Privacy, peace and quiet, beautiful inside and out. The whole rental process was easy and efficient. The owners went out of their way to be helpful and gave suggestions to make our stay the best it could be. Thanks to Koko for telling us about the private beach that only the locals seem to know about.

Spectacularly lush , green property . Very private . Spiritually rejuvenating .

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the charm and tropical splender of the less touristy north shore . One has to be little more intrepid and curious to travel the one lane dirt roads to get to the secluded property but you are rewarded upon arrival . The house is imacculate , stylishly decorated w surfboards and ethnic artifacts . Kitchen well equipped w great appliances and super clean. The landscaping and mountain views are stunning . Orchids were blooming and in the grove in the backyard we picked blood oranges and rambutan ( like lychee) for our breakfast daily . This is not a dumpy beach rental -- it's like a model home but furnished w personality and meaningful objects . Great hospitality -- fridge broke the day before our arrival and Gano furnished a temporary one in the garage and gave us a generous discount for the inconvenience . That and the heavy rains did not diminish our fabulous experience. I plan on returning and have recommended this place to others . If you need the sterile, pampered environement of a crowded hotel then go to the st Regis. This is a lovely home in the lush tropics, No a/c -- but excellent breezes, and not on the beach but convenient short drive to any of the beaches along the north shore . Thank you Gano for a fantastic stay and your attentiveness . Linda , Arizona

Beautiful remote hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Gano was amazing to work with. He went out of his way to provide us with his own version of his insider's guide on what to do and where to eat on Kauai. The house is absolutely amazing. It's a great place to unwind, escape reality and enjoy nature.

Secluded yet convenient. Huge lanai. Experienced, organized hosts. Can't wait to be back.

  • 5 of 5

I've visited Hawaii mostly yearly or twice a year since my childhood. 100 Shades of Green is my favorite rental home of all the homes I've stayed at. Here's why:

-The house is clean and renovated. (This is rare in the tropics/on islands/near beaches.)

-The lanai is completely screened (fun to watch the bright green geckos playing on the outside of the screen), large (6-person dining table; lounge area with sofa/chairs/coffee table; and large durable hammock that I fell asleep in!), and has overhead fans (much needed in the August humidity). We spent most of our evenings in the lounge area of the lanai.

-The kitchen and all its appliances, as well as the outdoor gas grill, are all high-quality and functional. We cooked almost every meal - at least two meals a day - and never once came upon a broken tool (rare for a rental house!).

-The stone floor of the master shower is perfect for post-beach showers. (There is an outdoor shower, too, but we were never sandy enough so we went straight to the master.)

-The hosts are clearly experienced - their responsiveness, helpfulness, and organization made a huge difference.

-We referenced their homemade "Kauai Guide" more than any guidebook throughout our trip. (They emailed us a copy after booking, and a hard copy was also available at the house.) The guide provided us with meticulously detailed instructions to get to the house, as well as a ton of non-touristy, local-recommended spots all around the island that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. Best of all, the guide included color photos for everything, including a photo at each turn in the driving directions so there was no way we could've had trouble finding the house.

-The backyard view is gorgeous: citrus plants and palm trees lining the lawn which slopes down to a stream, with a simple green mountain backdrop reminiscent of the NaPali coastline on a smaller scale.

-The house feels (and is) secluded and is in the jungle, yet it's only a 5-minute drive to the beaches and nearest town. Kauai's north shore has sadly become much more touristy in the last 10 years, yet we were able to escape the noise and remain close to the convenience at the same time.

Summary: a perfect honeymoon! There are three time we'll bring my whole family. Thank you very much, Steve and Gano.

Car: necessary

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.
