My boyfriend and I enjoyed getting to know Debbie and Lloyd a little bit. We were able to walk two blocks down to the beach and even to the pier from the house. Having bikes available was great for biking into town. The Kalalau trailhead is only a few miles down the road, as is the weekly farmer's market and Tunnels beach. The accommodations are basic, but everything you need is provided and the location and value can't be beat. Kauai is a beautiful island. We hope to return one day! Mahalo Debbie and Lloyd

                                                                    Beautiful Location!

                                                                    My teenage son and I stayed here for 4 nights. The location is incredible. The price was excellent for this location! We were able to walk to the beach every evening before sunset and sit on the quiet beach of Hanalei Bay. The beach is literally a 30 second walk from the unit. Debbie and Lloyd were very kind and accommodating. The unit is clean and comfortable and they have bikes, a barbecue, beach chairs, and beach towels to use during your stay. This island has so much to see, we spent very little time in the unit itself. This isn't the island to stay inside, you have to get out and explore. If you want to explore the North Shore, this is an ideal place to stay. There isn't a/c, and that wasn't a problem. We were able to open the windows and turn on the fans. It was nice and breezy at night. I might have been uncomfortable if we had spent time during the day inside, but again, if that is what you want, stay in a resort somewhere. This is a place to get out all day and explore the beauty of Kauai. We were really tired at night and the only upgrade I would suggest is a better TV. It does rain a lot and at times you want to just relax and maybe watch a movie in the evening. The TV made a lot of cracking sounds when warming up. So, we pretty much left it off all the time. The furniture in the living area is wicker and not all that comfortable for sitting in relaxing. But, again as I said, if you want to stay in, then this isn't the place for you. Also, if they would offer a WiFi guest password that would have also been a nice thing to have. Our cell phone carrier is Sprint and service was very spotty. I would have felt better if I knew I had a connection to back home in the event of emergency at home with my other family members. Also WiFi would have been great, to upload pictures after seeing beautiful Kauai all day long. Thank you again for sharing your lovely place with us. We loved it!!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

Since i was away hospitalized for several weeks on Oahu I would have told your that there is a password on the photograph leading out the sliding door for wifi. Sorry about that and yes I did mention to Lloyd about having the television changed. We did manage to purchase a new one after you both left. So sorry for the inconvience. We thank you for your stay and we hope to have you both return yet on another visit to Kauai. Please email me I believe you may have left something that the cleaner found that may be yours but i'm not sure since I just returned from the hospital when you folks left. Thank you so much. Aloha from the Hanalei Hale Ohana.

I rode one of the beach cruisers downtown for coffee and errands. We walked to the beach daily. Debbie and Lloyd were gracious hosts and were friendly to our whole family. It's a special experience to stay with a local in such a beautiful place like Hanalei. We will come back on our next trip to Kauai

                                                                    We stayed in the downstairs apartment of Debbie and Lloyd's house. It's surprisingly spacious. Our 2 little children shared the pull out couch. Debbie and Lloyed checked in with us to make sure we had everything, but kept to themselves otherwise. They are very sweet and very quiet, we did not hear any noise from upstairs. Plenty of beach toys to play with, and towels. We felt very comfortable.

                                                                    The little neighborhood is very quiet. Town is walking distance, and the beach is so close you can see it. We had a great time having breakfast from the bread shop on the Lanai with our coffee. And spent a lot of time on the beach even with the big surf.

                                                                    Don't miss out on the Farmer's market, the fish market, shave ice at Jo Jo's, and haupia pie at the snack shop (before noon). Keep an eye out for dolphins and whales in the winter months and check out the turtle at the pier. Some days the pier has a food truck too.

                                                                    If you come in early enough grab groceries at Walmart, or Safeway on your way. And there is a great cafe on the road to the lighthouse. We would definitely return if the opportunity presented itself. It was great value and a great experience.
