Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Hale Huna('Hidden House')is a wonderful cottage on a hillside near the 'end of the road' on North Kauai. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac with only a few other local houses. Very private and peaceful (It is NOT on/near the highway like many Kauai rentals). Perfect for a meditative getaway or honeymoon cottage. Healing and restful.

Beautiful views of green mountains from backyard. Lush plant life, including mango, banana, grapefruit, avocado, papaya and lime trees. Outdoor shower sheltered by bamboo bushes. This is a small but charming and tastefully furnished plantation-style cottage with the feel of 'real' Hawaii. Within five minutes drive of gorgeous sandy beaches, incredible snorkeling at Tunnels, Ke'e and Lumahai Beaches and world class surf at Hanalei Bay.

The closest town is charming Hanalei, which has restaurants, a grocery store, a health food store, shops, bars and more. Hanalei Bay is famous for its large crescent beach, winter surfing and calm summer waters. The stunning Na Pali Coast is just minutes away (the mountains seen from the backyard are the back of the Pali's/Mountains).

The North Shore of Kauai is known for its lush,tropical, rainforest-like climate and vegetation and low key lifestyle. It's a fantastic place to relax, read, swim, hike, surf, snorkel, eat fresh fish and my favorite, just walking on the beach looking for shells.

About Kristi Ferraro

We are a family of 4, who live in Avon, Colorado. We feel so blessed to be able to enjoy the contrasting beauty of the Colorado mountains and the tropics of Kauai. Our two sons feel pretty lucky that they get to ski at home and play in the ocean in Kauai.

Kristi Ferraro purchased this house in 2007

Why Kristi Ferraro chose North Shore

We always found ourselves being drawn back to the North Shore of Kauai, so we decided to take the plunge and buy a place. We couldn't believe that we found such a cute, vintage cottage. It truly feels like the Kauai I remembered from my first visit as a young kid in 1971.

What makes this house unique

We love eating the fruit from our yard and getting to know our local neighbors. We spend almost every day at the beach. We can hardly believe that some of the most dazzling places in the world are just a few miles from our cottage: Hanalei Bay, Tunnels Beach, the Napali coast, Ke'e Beach, the Kalalau Trail and Lumahai Beach.

A Magical Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here so much. The house is beautiful and the yard is stunning and mostly private. We are grapefruit picked right from the tree in the mornings and enjoyed sitting out on the patio for our meals. And be sure to take an outdoor shower. Trust me. Once you do you'll wonder why you ever showered indoors before. It's an easy drive to Hanalei and the beaches and shopping there or to Ke'e beach in the opposite direction. And pretty close to Kapa'a for shopping too. It's about an hour to Lihue and about 2 hours to Waimea Canyon so even day trips are easily accessible. Everything you need is here and the house was well stocked with kitchen basics, salt and pepper and oil for example (which our last VRBO properties we stayed in did not have). Stay here and you will not be disappointed!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We are so thankful to have been able to stay in such a beautiful home. Everything was so clean, so simple and elegant, and the location was fab. It was near the Napoli Coast, great hiking, beaches were all over this side. There was a 5-10 drive to town, which was beautiful and allowed for a get away vibe. Fresh fruit in the garden, hot water, incredible internet, and all the amenities needed. Highly recommended this stay :)

Perfect little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hale Huna with my cousin and her family for a week and loved it. It was very comfortable for 4 adults and two small children. We loved the feel of the place and the location. It had a lovely garden, a fully stocked kitchen and it was very private and quiet. Really good sushi place down the street and very close to Tunnels beach and the Napali trailhead. Loved it. Thank you for a great stay!

Wonderful stay at this lovely home with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our ten days stay at Hale Huna. It was so cozy and perfect for our family with everything we needed. We could tell there's so much love and care put in to it with lots of unique touches. The house has lots of windows overlooking lush landscaping, feels airy and bright and gives you an authentic island feel. There was a little convenient store at the corner of the street where we bought some fresh fruits and a decent sushi pick up where we ate a couple of times when we had no time to cook or make a 12 minute drive to hanalei bay for many good restaurants or food trucks. We fell in love with kauai for many many reasons and staying at Hale Huna was one of them. It was hard to say goodbye :(

Also Kristi was so accommodating and prompt in communication which added to the overall lovely and pleasant experience.

A wonderful and magical place for escape.

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend that anyone looking to get away to the wonders of Kauai's North Shore take advantage of staying at Hale Huna. My trip was planned last minute but Kristi was generously accommodating in the arrangements. The cottage itself is perfect--tastefully decorated, spacious, well appointed, and calming. I was concerned that it was too remote but my fears were completely ungrounded. There were splendid beaches just minutes away and getting to town was easy.

The cottage was peaceful without being isolated. Comfortable without being precious. Clean without being restrictive. And instantly relaxing with no stress in the arrangements.

I will certainly look to stay there again. A great experience all around. If you are researching places to stay, and this cottage is available. Stop looking and book. It is exactly what you are looking for. You won't regret it.
