About the Property

This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom mountain home is midpoint between 4 amazing beaches!

This unusual and intimate streamside home is located ten yards from a water-course that tumbles into three pools. Another larger river also freeflows through the property.

The hand-crafted home has an airy layout with excellent views of not only the streams and pools on the site itself but also of the more distant mountains and a waterfall. The main house has one bedroom as well as the living and eating areas and a great lanai. There is a sofa bed in the great room.
Rented with the house, are 2 cottages - one with one bedroom and one single, comfortable sofa bed and full bath, and a smaller screened cottage with a full bed and half-bath. This entire 3 acre property is your private shangra-la as it is only available as one rental and not shared.
The JungleRiverhouse is located just one mile from the nearest beach and is situated midway between, to the east, Hanalei and Lumahai Beaches, and within a 5 mile stretch to the west is situated both the world-renown Tunnels Beach as well as Ke'e beach and the start of the Na Pali Trail..

This home welcomes you with the sounds of cascading waters and songs of myriad birds! Lush jungle vegetation, privacy, relaxation, cool mountain breezes and beauty will surround you. Riverhouse is the epitomy of laid back old rural Hawaii. And the North Shore's famous beaches, restaurants,and eclectic shops are just a few short miles away!

Beware there is a semi-resident kitty cat, ChuChee who is politely fond of a little affection!

Car: Necessary

The famous Na Pali Trail starts less than 5 miles from Riverhouse. It is a 11 mile hike into valleys and beaches that are completely undeveloped. It is a hike best done with at least a 3 day timeframe.

Other epic hikes are also available not only on the North Shore but also throughout the island.

The beaches also provide beautiful and long stretches of the best sandy walks ever!

But be very careful - you could just fall in love with Kauai!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Rocky and I, Amanda are only able to stay home here at the Jungle Riverhouse for about half of every year. When we leave Kauai, we generally head to Seattle where our boat is moored. We own and operate a 90 foot fish packer that collects salmon in the Alaskan waters and delivers them to a plant to be filleted and vacuum packed.

Why the Owner Chose Hanalei, HI, USA:
Early on we learned that the many humpback whales that we saw in Alaska headed for the Hawaiian Islands to spend the winters. We thought that sounded like an excellent idea and we came here to explore. It was love at first sight with Kauai's North Shore! And then, to have found this place was completely off the charts! While we are here, we spend a lot of time working on the grounds and also enjoying time with family and friends who always seem to find their way to our doorstep!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
To be back a few steps from the busy world is a gift. To be awakened in the morning by bird and river song is a jewel. To wander these grounds is a pleasure. Aloha!
