About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Accommodates 4 guests)

This amazing and completely refurbished home is situated on a stunningly beautiful one-acre, gated OCEANFRONT estate property, right in the middle of magical Hanalei Bay. It is, in fact, one of the ONLY vacation rental cottages on beachfront property to be found anywhere on central Hanalei Bay. Private, direct access to the beach, which is only 200 feet from your doorstep. Hanalei Town is less than two blocks away- an easy walk for dining and shopping. Also enjoy spectacular views of our beautiful mountains from the cottage living area and screened-in patio. World-famous North Shore Napali Coast hiking trails are accessed 15 minutes from Hanalei. Boat and Kayak excursions also depart right from the Bay!

An Idyllic Setting for a Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a quiet week at this lovely cottage located right on the beach at Hanalei. So pleasant to stroll across the lawn and straight into the ocean for a swim, followed by a trip to the very private outdoor shower. This roomy cottage is totally updated and furnished with every amenity you might wish. It's a short stroll to Hanalei town and all the good restaurants and shopping there. We loved it! Thank you, Kim Bayless, for the overflowing fruit bowl and fresh flowers greeting us on our arrival. Our stay couldn't have been more pleasant.

Pure Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the cottage twice. The first time was for a week in December and then again in May for 15 nights. We have our own home on Kauai but preferred to rent the cottage due to the location which is unparalleled. The cottage is very well appointed with a beautiful kitchen and all the amenities one would expect in a fine rental. The owners are two of the kindest and most gracious people I have had the pleasure of meeting. They truly care for our comfort and are quick to respond to any questions. We only used the room with the queen bed. The mattress was extremely comfortable and we especially like having an outdoor shower. Having rented homes on Kauai for over 15 years we recognize that beachfront in Hanalei is becoming harder and harder to find and having such a lovely cottage for an affordable price on the bay is such a blessing and gesture of kindness. The owners could surely charge more for this location. Thank you Smoky and Kim for your hospitality and we look forward to coming back again and again.

On a side not, in reading other reviews for this home, I am clueless as to why someone would give a lower rating because the weather was not nice. Shouldn't the review focus entirely on the home and the service provided by the owners. Just seems so unfair to blame a rental home for inclement weather...just sayin.

Incredibly beautiful property on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the cottage within the beachfront estate property on Weke Road to see our daughter get married in a small family ceremony on the large lawn facing the beach. Kim and Smoky Bayless were so gracious, kind and supportive in allowing us to use their gorgeous property to hold the wedding, making it a very special and memorable event. The cottage is newly updated with all the amenities and very comfortable and quiet, with a large screened-in lanai, perfect for relaxing after being at the beach or to wait out a rain squall. The large yard is absolutely stunning with private access to the beach and protected from the street by a gated stone wall. It is by far one of the most beautiful, comfortable places to stay in Hanalei. We fell in love with the place and can't wait to return.

Lovely spot in paradise

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property located on the beach. A newly remodeled cottage sits behind the main house with a stunning view of the mountains. No need to bring beach chairs, towels or anything that is cumbersome as this is all generously supplied. Washer and Dryer make packing easy. The kitchen is well appointed if you want to cook.

Would I recommend this property YES.

The only reason I did not give it five stars is because the weather was quite wet, but this had nothing to do with the house.

We had a great time!

Great all around

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 20mo old toddler and I enjoyed our stay very much. The home is perfectly located in the town, access to beach is perfect, the house itself is well maintained, comfortable and newly done inside. The owners, Kim & Smoky, made things very easy and are very friendly. We highly recommend this spot for couples and families of 4 or less. We will definitely stay there again if we make it out to Kauai again.

On the Beach in Hanalei

  • 5 of 5

Recently remodeled beach cottage on an estate on the beach in Hanalei. We have rented numerous properties on Weke Road and this property was not only the best value but the best property. Well appointed Kitchen, all the beach stuff (chairs, towels, ...). The owners live on the property and are wonderful hosts. I mistakenly booked an extra day. Without asking Smokey, our host, refunded my 1 day overbooking. We will definitely stay here again!
