Hale Huna ('Hidden House') is a wonderful cottage on a hillside near the 'end of the road' on North Kauai. Located on hill and 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.
Our cottage had no flooding or leaks during the 2018 flood on the North Shore. It is above the regular tsunami inundation zone, but just within the extreme tsunami inundation zone if there's a 9.0 or greater magnitude earthquake in the Aleutian Islands. The safe zone can be reached by walking uphill to the other side of the street or by driving to Princeville.
Beautiful views of green mountains from backyard. Lush plant life, including mango, grapefruit, and lemon trees. Outdoor shower sheltered by tropical foliage. 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 and Ke'e Beaches, world class surf at Hanalei Bay and picturesque Lumahai.
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 NaPali 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.
