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 Hanalei

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!

It's a beatiful place with amazing views and a blick away from the worlds loveliest beach.

Although Hanalei seems to be accelerating its trend towards a getaway for the super rich, Jana's place on Anea road still feels like a regular neighborhood. We'll keep coming back

Owner's Response: Aloha John! Thank you for the honest and on point review. Although, our island and especially the area of Hanalei is growing and "accelerating its trend towards a getaway for the super rich", we like to think our neighborhood and our home gives off more of a laid back and more traditional vibe. Take care and hope to see you soon. Mahalo, Jana & Brydan

Hanalei Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights in September and loved it. Location is wonderful, close to town (walkable or bikeable) and very close to the beach and by that I mean less than a five minute walk down the road. The cottage is beautiful. Very comfortable and spacious with everything you might need for an easy vacation. Well-stocked kitchen- plenty of dishes and glassware. Tons of towels and beach towels plus they have everything you will need for your outdoor adventures-chairs, boogie boards, surf board, mats, toys, ice chest, bikes. Never saw Dana but did speak with Brydan a few times and he was very helpful. Highly recommend staying here. Mahalo Dana and Brydan. We can't wait to return to your wonderful beach cottage!

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!

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
