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 2 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.

Beautiful house and grounds!
The house and grounds were very quiet and beautiful. Waking up to the sound of the river and the view of the mountain every morning were highlights. Would stay again and totally recommend this place if you really want to experience the Garden Isle!
This house is absolutely beautiful, and next to so many great snorkeling beaches, hikes, and restaurants in the north shore. Gano and Steve left us with a list of recommended activities which we used as our primary guide and it did not disappoint. I wouldnt consider staying anywhere else if I'm ever back in Kaua'i. Thank you for making our trip so amazing!
This is a beautiful home in a very lush river valley. We loved our stay!
The location of this home is idyllic, with beautiful tropical landscaping, a river, fruit trees ripe for picking, and a spa for nighttime star gazing. Within a few miles, there were beautiful beaches for swimming and snorkeling, hiking trails with a view of the Napoli coast, and Limahuli Botanical Garden. We highly recommend this home.
Kauai retreat in a most lush setting!
We enjoyed the house and beautiful property it sits on! The view of the river and mountain backdrop is breathtaking especially from the hot tub. We hope to return someday. Mahalo! 🌴
This was the best vacation rental I've ever stayed in.
Every detail was thought of, from the great communication leading up to the visit, to the helpful guides and directions regarding location of the house, parking, using the amenities, and the cleanliness upon arrival.
But the real enjoyment was just how beautiful the home itself is and the area it is located. I could have spent my entire vacation on the lanai and felt like it was a success. We didn't, but just saying. I was the early riser of the group, so I got to watch the sun rise every morning, something I really enjoy. We picked fruit off the trees, spent some time by the river, we ate incredible meals on the lanai made of fresh ingredients from the Hanalei farmers markets and various other little shops and finished most days with a soak in the jacuzzi where we had the best view of the stars any of us had seen in a long time.
It was perfect.
Thanks Gano and Steve for opening up your beautiful home for visitors and making it such a comfortable, welcoming place. Kauai is a gem, one of the most beautiful places I've visited. So glad we were able to visit.
Beautiful, secluded location in the middle of a rainforest
The entire space is absolutely amazing. There's a ton of room, a hot tub to wind down at the end of a day exploring, and plenty of nature to enjoy right there for when you're not feeling up to exploring. If you have an early riser in the group, the property is great to hang out on while waiting for the others to wake. The lanai is wonderful, though we didn't end up making much use of it. There are some friendly geckos and anoles that hang around and are fun to watch, along with a variety of other creatures near the river.
The beds were very comfortable, and the place was ideal for leaving some of the windows open all night, even when raining -- including the doors in master bedroom. Between the river and the rain, it was very peaceful to fall asleep to. Even when it stormed one night, we left them open to enjoy being in the midst of it all.
The kitchen is fully loaded with appliances/utensils, if you're not looking to eat out. There are also many fruit trees on the property, so you may be in for quite a treat depending on if they're bearing fruit.
Gano and Steve also left a great guide with suggestions on what to do on the north side of Kauai.
We split our 6-day stay on this island between here and Poipu, partially due to the south supposedly being more sunny/dry (it wasn't -- they were equally wet, on/off every day) and had more fun on the north side and at this property, despite the Poipu property being a different type of amazing. It's definitely more resort-like and touristy in that area, so when planning your trip, keep that in mind.
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.
