At this time due to the flood that happened on April 14th, the area of Haena is not accessible through the end of July until further notice. There are damages to the road accessing this area. So send us an inquiry rather than a booking request for any dates between August and Sept. We will update this as more information is available. Thanks!!
Nestled among Kauai's tropical wild plant life, this charming, circular three bedroom, two bath home lies just 200 feet from the beach. Open beamed living and dining areas provide for spacious and relaxed enjoyment with stunning views of the mountains. Wake up to the beautiful melodies of jungle birds, take a short walk to the beach for snorkeling, or enjoy warm island breezes as you dine on the wrap-around lanai. Sleeps up to six adults comfortably but can sleep up to 7 max.
There are several generous common areas in this house, including the 600 square foot covered lanai. The main floor living and dining areas are furnished to accommodate six or seven people very comfortably.
The kitchen is fully furnished with all the necessary cooking and eating utensils.There are grocery stores in Hanalei and Princeville.
The master bedroom features a king-size bed and a twin bed, walk-in closet and bathroom with a shower. Located on the main floor, the master suite takes full advantage of the vaulted beam ceilings and unique 'tree house' design. You can fall asleep to the song of tropical rain falling on the roof and wake up to the call of the birds in the trees that are right outside the windows. It's a deeply peaceful, restful spot, with all of the modern conveniences.
Note: The two bedrooms located on the ground floor are accessed by an outside separate entry only. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower on the ground floor of this house. The imported Spanish tile floors in these rooms are cool and comfortable to walk on. Both bedrooms have a queen-size bed. All necessary towels and bed linens are provided. Both bedrooms access a paved, covered patio that looks out onto the lushly landscaped private yard surrounding the house. Each room has a ceiling fan and plenty of dresser and closet space.

Classic and cozy, restful oasis
I agree with all the positive comments in reviews written by other travelers. The general description of the property is 100% accurate. This is a wonderfully airy and spacious home away from home. The owner was easy to work with, and we highly recommend this house to anyone who is not looking for super modern features. The accommodation is well worth the price. The house was clean and very comfortable for our family of 5. The covered lanai allowed us to enjoy outdoor dining even in the rain, and the hammock was well used! The owners have thought of everything you might need to enjoy your stay, both in the house and at the beach.
If you want quiet, beauty and an authentic Hawaii vacation, this house is for you
Myself and 3 female friends stayed here for 6 days. The house fit our needs perfectly. Large kitchen/living area, 2 private suites downstairs with ample places to read/relax on covered patio, a lovely master upstairs w. open concept living, a large deck w. view of the local flora and birdsong, a fabulous outdoor shower under a plumeria tree, and a hammock we took turns napping in. There are 2 beach pathways either direction of house, w one to the right leading to shallow beautiful swimming area protected by reef, and path to the left leading to a point w. deeper water/excellent snorkeling and views of the monk seals that lounge on the point (near sand/reef bar). There are several shady areas w. trees along beach but those spots are popular so be prepared to be out in open sun if these spots are taken. The beach at night was gorgeous and we were lucky to have a full Hanalei moon. The area is private w. a variety of homes that have a laid back, low key luxury feel to them. Its quiet at night, and close (driving 5-10 min). to multiple beautiful beaches (Tunnels, Ke'e, Lumaha'i, Hanalei Bay/pier). Ke'e beach has gorgeous sunsets; get there about 1/2 hr before sundown to get a good spot on beach. The North shore is quite a ways from the more crowded areas of Kauai such as Kapa'a/Lihue, and very far from the Waimea Canyon area. But that's why we chose Keiki Leo house, to truly get away. We spent 4 of the 6 days at the beaches right out front of the house, and one day at area beaches mentioned above, and one day shopping, eating in Hanalei. Its a great house for multiple couples, a girls or guys retreat, and families w. older kids; not sure I'd bring younger kids here as there is a staircase to deal. Sidenote: Although we did not use services, there's the Hanalei Colony Resort w. in walking distance w. a spa and restaurant/coffee house. House was well stocked esp. beach chairs, cooler, lots of towels, etc. Acacia was awesome to work with and we all agree we'd love to return to this special hale (home)....mahalo!
The Perfect Kauai Beach Getaway
My family and I are in love with this house. The location is incredible being steps from the beach and the house itself is so unique and Islandly. We would go back in a heartbeat. The snokeling was awesome as was hearing the jungle sounds at night. We also LOVED the town of Hanalei that was only 10 minutes away. Thank you so much Acacia, you were so great to work with! ( :
Tracy & Saundra
Our family of 4 all adults had a spectacular time with plenty of room in the house and comfortable beds. We enjoyed the sunsets on the beach with a short walk each evening. Very handy that the house was well supplied with beach towels and a cooler. We enjoyed the adventure hikes and the Zip Line all very close. We enjoyed several local dinning establishments in the area and especially less crowds. Thank you for our wonderful trip to Kauai the north shore and would positively recommend this house to stay.
4th year as a guest, next year is booked!
We love this place, and our dealings with Acacia at Awesome Adventures have been first class. If you're looking for a modern highrise, with a swimming pool bar, and a golf course out back then keep looking. If you want a very cozy home very close to the beach and away from the tourists traps you will like Keiki Leo. Keiki Leo is walking distance to Makua beach, and the beach out front (Kepuhi) is also very good. I will continue to book this gem as long as I can. 10 stars!!!!
Great space for my family
My family of 7 adults stayed in the house for 10 days. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. We wanted to be close to Hanalei and the beach without having a touristy feel. This house is in a quite neighborhood just steps from the beach.
The winter surf is very big on the north shore but we were able to find a swimming hole a few minutes down the beach and also had 1 calm day to snorkel at Tunnels. It is close to great hiking and just a quick 10 minute drive into Hanalei.
We cooked dinner every night and found the kitchen to have ample supplies. We loved that the house had so many areas for hanging out. So whether you wanted to be with the group or alone there were numerous options.
