About Jana Blackstad

An outdoor family of four, Brydan, Jana, Brock, and Miss Jordyn. We two dogs (Mojo & Cash), a boat, a few bikes, and lots of boogie boards to enjoy at the beach. We enjoy going to the beach to fish, swim, diving, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and just hang out with family. We love to travel, so we know how to treat people when they are on vacation.

Jana Blackstad purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jana Blackstad chose North Shore

We have beautiful sand beaches, lots of great snorkeling areas, awesome winter waves for surfing, and beautiful sunsets. We are a family of four who love to spend time with each other, whether it be at the beach: swimming, snorkeling, surfing; fishing on our boat, or hiking in the mountains. We would love to share our home with you while you enjoy your vacation!

What makes this apartment unique

The perfect property if you want to be close to the beach, with all the amenities of an upstairs apartment: stove top, microwave, refrigerator, washer/dryer in unit, large master bedroom (cal-king bed) with a beautiful view of the mountains/waterfalls, and a reasonable price. We are a short distance to the famous Hanalei Bay, restaurants, grocery stores, and other amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your apartment is beautiful and we have already been telling our friends about it. We would love to bring our children back with us-our daughter, M, who is 17 loves Hanalei and would love your place. Our baby, W, who is 3 and not really a baby (as you well know) loves spending time digging in the sand. A perfect place for all of us!

The Very Best Part of our Hawaiian Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jana and Brydan's (and Brock and Jordyn's) beautiful home in Hanalei Bay for 4 nights (of a 3 1/2 week Hawaiian trip) and loved every minute of it. It was truly the highlight of our travels.The space is bright, breezy, clean and has breathtaking views from every window. The location was ideal-- on a quiet street, steps from the stunning beach and walking distance to town. Jana and Brydan are wonderful and thoughtful people who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable! The use of their bikes and beach equipment made us feel more like locals than tourists. (Brydan even generously gave us some recently caught ono and salmon which was probably the best tasting fish we've ever eaten!) The peaceful lanai was an added bonus (as was the use of the washer-dryer, which came at the perfect time during our trip). We feel lucky to have stayed in this amazingly special place on Kauai. Mahalo to Jana and family for such a memorable experience! We highly recommend their home!!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Tim and Hinde, We are so glad you both enjoyed our apartment and our family. You arrived during a very blessed time of the year, as fishing was abundant for our us. We love sharing our locally caught fish with family and friends when its available so happy you both got to have some. Glad the bikes and beach equipment came in handy as well as being in a convenient location. Please be sure to visit again if you ever return to Hanalei! Blessings to you and your family. Mahalo - Jana & Brydan

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is a little gem. The apartment is clean, comfortable and airy and the views of the mountains from the bedroom, living room and lanai are amazing. Anything you could possibly need to go to the beach (which is less than a 5 minute walk away) is provided. The cruiser bikes were an added bonus which made our trips to town and the pier for nightly sunsets so much more enjoyable. Jana was very easy to work with and always available by phone if we needed anything during our stay. We've visited Kauai in the past, but have never stayed in Hanalei. It's such a special place in Kauai and definitely our new favorite vacation spot. Thank you to Jana, Brydan, Brock and Jordyn for sharing their home with us, we truly enjoyed our time. We highly recommend this place and look forward to staying here again!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Great house in great location! The views were AMAZING and it was so great being able to walk right down to the beach. We would definitely stay again. We didn't get a chance to meet the family, as they were out of town, but everything was just as pictured and we had everything we needed. Thanks so much!

hanalei beach suite

  • 4 of 5

Jana nice and helpful

location awesome

washer and dryer are great to have

king bed very comfortable

large closet to store everything you brought including luggage

has everything you need including beach bags, chairs, boogie boards, bikes, kitchen supplies

but i have to add that the suite is basic boring. No decor what so ever, meaning nothing tropical, no pictures etc. living area had only 1 couch that was in worse shape than the one in my college dorm and had a slip cover that was in equally bad shape that kept coming off. i finally used the beach towels to sit on, and that worked. coffee table old and crappy with lots of water damage. drapes old, hang on floor. a single bed just sitting in the middle of the large living area. Bathtub shower very very slippery.

Just not a very homey feeling. i am writing this to let folks know these particulars. i worry because there are many rentals in same proximity to beach that are maybe 25 dollars a night more (i googled rentals in area as i was curious) and much more inviting in regards to character and quality of comfortable furniture. there is now competition in the area and i hope they are aware of this

Owner's Response: Debbie...Whew - That was a lot to take in. Yes, unfortunately I do not have many paintings or decor in the vacation rental. Our goal in our vacation rental is to be sure everyone is comfortable and have all the necessities so their vacation is enjoyable! This is the first time, I had a remark about our sofa and by the way sofa cover is brand new. I do not advertise my place to be well decorated so what you see in the photos is what you get. Hopefully guest enjoy the location and the beauty of the mountains as part of their vacation in Hanalei. I wish you luck in finding another vacation rental in Hanalei more to your standards.

Nice place in a great town!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay in Hanalei town, the beach suite was perfect for us! It was nice to have a full-sized refrigerator and the washer/dryer was an added bonus as we were on the island for 2 weeks total. We used the bikes (which were new) to cruise to the pier and to town and we borrowed the boogie boards to play in the ocean. We even watched one of the included DVDs one night.

I've stayed on the north shore a number of times and have tried out a few different rentals. The price on the beach suite is really good and so is the family neighborhood location with views of the mountains. The owners are super nice and helpful without being intrusive. Hanalei is close to so many great beaches and the bay itself a sweet hangout spot.

There were a couple of negatives which I am sure the kind and responsive owners will address soon. The complimentary beach chairs had seen better days and the coffee pot needed to be replaced or at least needed a thorough cleaning. It was not the cleanest place we have ever stayed however it was fine for us.

Usually the 2nd floor gets great breezes and with the number of windows, this place would have been cool except during our stay, the trade winds were not blowing. We weren't there much for the day but it was a bit toasty in the evenings until we got the ceiling fans and supplied floor flans going. Just something to consider if a/c is important to you.

Would I stay there again? In a heartbeat!

Fantastic! Bright and airy with beautiful views in a perfect location one block from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this bright and airy spot only one block from the beach! Lots of windows with beautiful views and breezes - we could hear the ocean at night. To top that, all the amenities were an added bonus - bikes, surfboard, chairs, etc. Jana was a pleasure to work with and renting through her was seamless. We will definitely be back!
