About Ginny Shinn

We love Kauai and bought a gorgeous beachfront property that we could build on. Today the property has two identical vacation rental homes facing the ocean and one cottage. The landscape is very tropical with tall trees, heliconia, ginger, poinsietta and manilla palms.

Ginny Shinn purchased this house in 2002

Why Ginny Shinn chose Haena

Alealea Street in Haena is quiet and relaxed with a touch of Hawaii you won't find anywhere else. It reminds us of an quieter, older time on Kauai and we love the plantation feeling of our homes in 'Old Hawaii'.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing on our lanai and watching the ocean is one of our favorite activities. We always come with family and friends and bbq fresh fish at night while we watch the sunset. Snorkeling in front of the house and visiting our resident turtle is a must!

Beachfront Luxury on Tunnels Beach with Beautiful Ocean & Mountain Views
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Our ten days were not nearly enough in this beautiful spot! The home and its location were perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation. The house was exactly as promised - beautifully maintained and furnished with all that we needed. The view from the lanai was beyond words and our grandchildren enjoyed the beach that is literally in the backyard. We are delighted with the choice we made to stay in this beautiful spot!

Paradise in Haena

  • 5 of 5

This home was just perfect for our family and then friends. We stayed for 1 month and could have stayed longer! The house accommodates people well and the outdoor patio is just perfect for grabbing a shady place to read, nap or just gaze at the beautiful beach and ocean in the back yard. The home is so well appointed with anything you need in the kitchen and came with a generous supply of paper goods upon arrival. Sheets/towels/linens are very good quality and the house is very clean and well taken care of. The grounds are maintained beautifully and your garbage is taken to the street each week and the cans are brought back in for you.....We have stayed at many vacation homes and this one by far exceeded our expectations for cleanliness/location/maintenance/quality. We will come back and stay at this home for sure!

Hawaii trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Kauai. The house and location were outstanding. Kauai is easily the most beautiful of the Hawaian Islands and the north shore is the closest thing to paradise on earth we have ever seen.

Just a 10 minute drive from shopping, restaurants and beaches in the Hanalei area. There's a great swimming beach directly in front of the house (safe during certain times of the year) with a beautiful white sand beach running for miles along the ocean. Also excellent snorkeling, kite surfing and surfing sites are also found in this area.

A fun Art Gallery and Expresso Coffee House are located within walking distance from the houses. Also, there's a great Mediterranean restaurant and bar is located next to the coffee shop!
